Purge: Anarchy Hoax Claims 112 Murdered by Chicago Re-Enactors

21 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As you may have seen, a news story coming out of Chicago made the rounds across the internet this past weekend, claiming that 112 people had been murdered by a group of teens whose killing spree was inspired by The Purge: Anarchy (review).

It's precisely those kinds of stories that give horror movies a bad name, but thankfully, this one wasn't legit.

The website Cream Bmp Daily reported on the story Friday, which was packed with alleged quotes from both civilians and police officers.

The mass killing was described as a re-enactment of The Purge: Anarchy, taking place shortly after the movie hit theaters on Friday night. The site reported that no arrests had been made and that police would be closely monitoring social media sites, waiting for the teenage killers to brag about their crimes.

Fortunately, the obviously fake story was shortly thereafter debunked by The Epoch Times, who revealed »

Deliver Us From Marketing – The Misuse of ‘True’ Stories in Cinema

20 July 2014 6:13 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

This article is based on a true story.

In a rather perfect example of the Coen Brothers’ irreverent mischievousness, their 1996 masterpiece Fargo opens with the text ‘This is a true story‘. Mainly employed to set the tone for their story, which is at its heart a deeply cynical look at human greed and folly, it was a knowingly bogus claim that virtually everyone was aware of from the get-go. A blatant lie rather than a half true, it escapes genuine criticism mostly due to its audacity. Even so, it sparked an infamous urban legend that a woman went in hunt of the loot and froze to death, having seen the movie and the truthfulness claim and taking it that real money was buried somewhere in the snowfields of Minnesota. While it has since proven to be a false story, either fabricated or mis-attributing a real death to a fictional premise, »

'The Conjuring' Doll Cries Tears of Blood in New 'Annabelle' Poster

17 July 2014 6:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Producer James Wan, who is no stranger to creepy puppets, won't let poor Annabelle rest for long. Even though The Conjuring only came out last year, a spin-off is already headed into theaters this October, just in time for Halloween. The story follows a possessed doll that has become a horror icon in her own right.

Before being discovered by demon hunters Ed Warren and his wife Lorraine Warren, this toy was brought into the nursery of a newborn, who's mom would soon be killed by an intruder. The true-life tale claims that the dead woman's soul seeped into the doll, ready to terrorize those who came in contact with the tormented ghost. Check out the first poster, which finds Annabelle crying tears of blood for the fallen house wife.

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 14th 2014

14 July 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

 

In a canny move surprising few, Amazon have gone and echoed a pattern Netflix began around a year ago and nabbed a series from the Us where they will add an episode each week the day after its Us broadcast. This practice worked well with Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn in the past year and the publicity it got could well be the reason why you might encounter so many people who are only now making their way through five seasons of Breaking Bad via Netflix. So the show in question which be all exclusive up in here is the new Steven Spielberg/Halle Berry joint called Extant.

I knew nothing about this show going in and that is perhaps the best way to view it. I’m not going to claim this is the new Lost or whatever at this point but the first episode was ‘promising »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of The Purge: Anarchy In St. Louis

7 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

In 2013, the country responded to the provocative concept that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal. Audiences turned The Purge into a surprise summer hit as the film debuted at No. 1 with an astonishing $34.1 million weekend at the domestic box office.

After witnessing the response to the film and listening to the conversations that it provoked, James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge and writer of The Negotiator, Assault on Precinct 13) quickly returned to the explosive universe that he created with an even more arresting idea for a sequel: placing the audience outside on the streets during the annual Purge.

A speculative thriller that shows us what occurs during The Purge outside of the confines of a suburban neighborhood, The Purge: Anarchy returns us to a dystopic future. Our government, now re-engineered by the New Founders of America (Nfa), has sanctioned its annual 12-hour »
