New images from the ‘Poltergeist’ redux

24 March 2015 2:55 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Twentieth Century Fox are set to revive (rehash?) the terrifying classic 80s horror Poltergeist – this time in 3D. and we have some new images from the film – produced by the legend that is Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (Evil Dead, Drag Me To Hell) – to share with you.

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Grudge) and director Gil Kenan contemporise the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.

Poltergeist is directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House) and stars Sam Rockwell (Moon), Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married), Jared Harris (Mad Men) and Jane Adams (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind). The film will be released in UK and Ireland cinemas on Friday 22nd May 2015.

20 March 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

"The door to their world could close at any moment. I've got to go in and get her out." A commercial for the Poltergeist remake teases more horrors for the Bowen family. Also included in our latest video round-up is a new Salem Season 2 trailer and clip, along with a recent Avengers: Age of Ultron TV spot and another Scream Queens teaser.

First TV Spot For Poltergeist Remake Hints At New Brand Of Terror

19 March 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

By switching up its summer release slate, 20th Century Fox are now faced with upping its marketing techniques for Poltergeist. Originally positioned for a late July opening, the spooky remake was moved up by two months and is now set to open nationwide at the end of May. That’s only eight weeks to build anticipation, muster excitement and to generally make sure there are sufficient bums on seats when the movie debuts.

February marked the arrival of the film’s first teaser trailers, both of which sought to distance this rebooted modern day version from Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original. Once again, the introduction of a new type of evil unseen ghostie is front and center in this first TV spot, which you can check out for yourself above. While the domestic and international previews flesh out the backstory and pile on more scares, this creepy morsel is still well worth a watch. »

10 Films You Didn’t Realise Buffyverse Actors Were In

18 February 2015 8:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

EuropaCorp

It has now been 11 years since the Buffyverse came to an end (as far as its television shows were concerned, at least). Buffy The Vampire Slayer saw its final episode aired in 2003, while Angel saw its last episode air one year later – and fans of the shows still miss them both to this day.

One of the key reasons behind the popularity of the two shows was undoubtedly the characters. A talented group of regular cast members and supporting actors brought to life some of the weirdest, wackiest, funniest and most interesting characters anybody could ever wish for in a television series and many of them have gone on to obtain further success in Hollywood (and some of them had actually already made their mark in the world of film).

While it’s hard not to notice the likes of Sarah Michelle Gellar in films like The Grudge, Alyson Hannigan »

Michael Douglas on the Hunt in First Trailer for 'Beyond the Reach'

6 February 2015 8:39 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

This summer we'll see Michael Douglas in Marvel mode as he has a co-starring role in Ant-Man alongside Paul Rudd. But before then, Douglas is getting a little dark with a thriller called Beyond the Reach. In what is essentially a more campy adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game, the film follows an upscale loan shark who is taking in the Mojave Desert with a little hunt. But when his young guide (Jeremy Irvine) is surprising by his human-hunting game, he ends up being the next target, with nowhere to run but deeper into the scorching, dry wasteland. This looks like an awesome B-movie right on par with the first Taken. Here's the first trailer for Jean-Baptiste Léonetti's Beyond the Reach, originally from Yahoo: Beyond the Reach is directed by French filmmaker Jean-Baptiste Léonetti and written by Stephen Susco (The Grudge), based on the book Deathwatch by Robb White. »

Scarier International Trailer Lands For Poltergeist Remake

5 February 2015 2:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Trailers. They’re like buses. You wait for ages for one and then suddenly two arrive at once. This morning saw the first trailer for the Poltergeist remake hit the web and immediately stir up a ton of intrigue surrounding the film. Who is Jared Harris playing, exactly? What’s really going on with the ghosts? And will that track that one of the ghosts whips up on the kiddy keyboard be available on iTunes?

All that, however, was the domestic trailer, which was cultivated for U.S. audiences. Now, we’ve been granted a look (via Digital Spy) at the international version which offers further insight into the family’s unfortunate circumstance.

Based loosely on Tobe Hooper’s 1982 chiller, this rebooted modern-day version is the product of director Gil Kenan and producer Sam Raimi. The story revolves around Rosemary Dewitt and Sam Rockwell, as a happily-married couple who move »

'Poltergeist' International Trailer Has All-New Footage

5 February 2015 1:54 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this morning, MGM and Fox released the first trailer for their scary new remake of Poltergeist. And it was met with a warm reception, even by longtime fans of the original who refuse to believe that this reboot is neccessary. A second trailer has come online, which is meant for international audiences. It has more than enough new footage to make it a worthwhile watch, and even sheds new light on some of the family dynamic inside the Bowen house.

Legendary filmmaker and producer Sam Raimi ("Spider-Man, Evil Dead, The Grudge) and director Gil Kenan (Monster House) are behind this attempt to recapture lightening in a bottle, taking over for producer Steven Spielberg and director Tobe Hooper. Much like their iconic 1982 effort, this new version follows the classic tale of a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, »

The Poltergeist Remake's First Trailer is Pretty Good

5 February 2015 12:42 PM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Whether you're excited or not, a remake of the Poltergeist is coming this year, and today brings the first trailer. Fans of the original and horror movies might be surprised at how much they like it, however.  Come inside to take a gander!

Even though I'm not a big fan of horror movies, I'm digging this trailer.  It definitely harkens back to the original film in a lot of ways, and really feels like more of a modern update than anything else.  That's not necessarily a bad thing, and the trailer certainly hits up the horror aspects pretty hard (despite being a PG-13 adaptation).  

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces.  When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must »

Trailer And Poster For Poltergeist

5 February 2015 9:55 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It's Here!!! Yes, the trailer for Gil Kenan's reboot of Poltergeist has dropped, and as a huge fan of the original, I think this new version of Tobe Hooper's classic haunted house movie is in very good hands. There is a real sense of dread running through it's two minutes twenty six seconds, and, bar some dodgy CGI in places, the scares are pretty effective. I'm on the fence on Jared Harris being the Tagina substitute, but that's just down to Zelda Rubinstein completely owning the role, but he at least seems to be doing something different with it. Check out the trailer and wonderfully old school poster (it's all in the font) below. Released: 24th July (U.S.)/ 31st July (Irl/U.K.) Synopsis: Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose »

First Full-Length Trailer For Poltergeist Reboot Looms Online

5 February 2015 9:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If yesterday’s array of creepy, neon-blue images were the foreboding appetizer for Poltergeist, then today’s full-length trailer is the blood-curdling main course.

Coming by way of The Playlist, the footage gives us our first real look at Gil Kenan’s revisionist take on Tobe Hooper’s 1982 cult classic. In it, we see Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt star as a young couple moving into their humble new abode, only to discover that the entire estate was built upon an ancient cemetery. Soon thereafter, their daughter is abducted by a group of malevolent spirits, forcing the two to turn to a supernatural researcher and clairvoyant (Jared Harris) for aid.

Sounds familiar? It should. Poltergeist was riding the crest of a horrific wave when it debuted twenty-three years ago, and in many ways helped establish the horror conventions that have become so hackneyed through repetition. That said, from what we gather, »

First gameplay footage for J-horror adventure, NightCry

5 February 2015 12:36 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From the creator of Clock Tower comes the horror point-and-click adventure, NightCry. Here's the first gameplay footage...

In early January, we saw the first teaser trailer for NightCry, the spiritual successor to the Clock Tower horror game series. Although heavy on atmospherics and monsters, the teaser showed us nothing of the game itself - something rectified in the first gameplay trailer.

The footage arrives as NightCry launches its Kickstarter campaign, with developer Playism Games is looking for $300,000 to get a more visually detailed version of the game ported across to PC.

With Clock Tower creator Hifumi Kouno at the helm and movie director Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge) on board as a collaborator, NightCry has a sterling pedigree. A point-and-click adventure set on a luxury liner, it's a deadly game of hide and seek: an indestructible creature wielding a pair of scissors is slaughtering the ship's inhabitants, and you - cast »

11 stars of classic '90s teen movies: Where are they now?

24 January 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Charlie Lyne's documentary Beyond Clueless harks back to the classic teen movies that shaped the '90s.

Featuring narration from The Craft's Fairuza Balk (and with clips of Robin Tunney, Devon Sawa and co), it made us feel a sudden pang of nostalgia and sent us on our own trip down memory lane to find out where they - and the rest of the '90s teen movie crew - are now.

So, here are 11 stars from some of our favourite '90s teen movies, and what they've gone on to do since:

1. Devon Sawa - Idle Hands (1999)

Dreamy Devon Sawa starred as lazy stoner Anton Tobias - who turns mass murderer after his hand becomes possessed - in the horror comedy Idle Hands.

He went on to play teenage prophet of doom Alex Browning in Final Destination (2000), and appeared as similarly unstable Stan in Eminem's controversial music »
