Enter ‘The Void’ in First Teaser for John Carpenter-Esque Horror Film

18 February 2017 10:25 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With horror recently enjoying an arthouse renaissance, another film that looks to fit the bill will arrive this year. The first teaser trailer for director Jeremy Gillespie’s (Father’s Day) latest horror film The Void has now arrived. Last year, the film stopped by Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas where it made an blood-splattered impression with comparisons to the work of John Carpenter.

This first teaser, although quite brief, packs a punch with no shortage of effective imagery, including some eye stabbings, body horror, and the threat of the Kkk, while also packing some sci-fi elements. Set for a U.K. debut at the end of next month, we’re still waiting a U.S. release, but in the meantime, check it out below with a hat tip to Birth Movies Death.

Brutal Teaser Trailer For The Void Slithers Online

15 February 2017 12:34 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“There is a hell. This is worse.” Welcome to The VoidJeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski’s indie horror flick that has today conjured up its first, truly unsettling teaser trailer.

Even for a 30 second promo, The Void crams in just enough bloodsoaked nightmare fuel to leave us wanting more, and if the footage shown evokes memories of John Carpenter, it should. Before blazing a trial of their own, Gillespie and Kostanski worked in design and VFX across such high-profile productions as Pacific Rim, RoboCop and the Hannibal TV series, and the creative duo are “committed to introducing audiences to a unique horror-mythology” with their latest project.

It follows a small town sheriff (Aaron Poole) who finds himself in over his head after escorting an unassuming stranger to the local hospital. From there, things go from weird to downright bizarre, and the teaser above crams in a shotgun blast of »

This past weekend, the American Society of Cinematographers awarded Greig Fraser for his contribution to Lion as last year’s greatest accomplishment in the field. Of course, his achievement was just a small sampling of the fantastic work from directors of photography, but it did give us a stronger hint at what may be the winner on Oscar night. Ahead of the ceremony, we have a new video compilation that honors all the past winners in the category at the Academy Awards

Created by Burger Fiction, it spans the stunning silent landmark Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans all the way up to the end of Emmanuel Lubezki‘s three-peat win for The Revenant.

Ocean’S 8: First Image Released, Check Out The Star Power In Action!

30 January 2017 12:05 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ocean's 8 will be a reboot of George Clooney's Ocean's 11 franchise, and while everyone involved has kept a tight lip about the plot we do know that it will feature an all female cast and pictured above are the eight women rumored to be the actual "Ocean's 8". Now, I know where almost everyone's mind is heading right now -- way back to 2016 when an all female cast massacred Ghostbusters, tore the franchise to shreds, and stomped in the face of "Bill effing Murray" who was actually kind enough to lend his celebrity status to the movie. I do not think this will be the case in Ocean's 8 and the main reason is the caliber of most of the actresses involved. Let's take a look at the eight in the picture and a few more ladies involved as well.
