My colleague Anita Busch, Deadline’s box office maestro, is on a well-deserved vacation this weekend. But she’s not the only one taking a break: most of the major distributors aren’t opening any wide releases Friday. It’s the first time since 1990 that a major studio, sister classic label, or mini-major hasn’t bowed a frosh wide release in the post-Labor Day frame–quite often the lowest grossing weekend of the year. Originally, Open Road was set to open Eli Roth’s horror-in-the-jungle film Green Inferno before pulling the title after a disagreement with the film’s financier Worldview Entertainment over the P&A tab. This leaves distrib-for-hire Freestyle Releasing with the only new wide release in the market, the Elvis-inspired musical The Identical starring Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. The film about twin brothers separated at birth, one of who becomes a rock n’ roll star, »

Jackie Earle Haley, the last actor to wear and use Freddy Krueger’s iconic finger knives on screen, highlights the list of notable performers who will voice characters in Bethesda’s upcoming survival horror title, The Evil Within. Haley, who also played Rorschach in Hollywood’s adaptation of The Watchmen, has been outed as the game’s main villain, Ruvik. His opponent, Detective Sebastian Castellanos, will be portrayed by Anson Mount of Hell on Wheels fame.
Dexter fans will also be happy to hear that Jennifer Carpenter — who is most famous for her role as the serial killer’s sister, Debra Morgan — will appear in the game as Detective Castellanos’ partner, Juli Kidman. She rounds out an impressive cast that will lend an air of credibility to the brand new IP.
Released alongside this news is a trailer that mixes gruesome gameplay footage with shots of the aforementioned actors doing their thing. »

Where The Exorcism Of Emily Rose attempts to weigh demonic possession against mental illness, Wer calls upon the same judicial storytelling by putting a suspected werewolf on trial in hopes of proving innocence through physical ailments. Playing out like a faux-documentary, most of the film is spent watching a sassy lawyer defender her furry client, condemning a case riddled with inconsequential evidence that only the worst investigation could slum together, but a shockingly invigorated third act changes at the rising of a full moon. Writer/Director William Brent Bell and co-writer Matthew Peterman’s previous film, The Devil Inside, crumbles under the weight of vapid storytelling and an absolutely insulting ending, but these rejuvenated artists refuse to wander the same joyless road a second time. »

Proclaiming your newest horror movie is based on true life events isn't anything new for movie studios, to my mind it reaches back to 1979's The Amityville Horror, but with the recent run of 'based on real life events' horror movies, including The Conjuring and The Quiet Ones, I for one am getting sick of getting hit over the head with this trend. The latest movie to proudly proclaim the spooky goings on you see are rooted in the real life is Deliver Us From Evil, based on New York police officer Ralph Sarchie's (played here by Eric Bana) account of a case where he came face to face with demonic possession. Coming from director Scott Derrickson, who brought us the similary 'based on a true story' The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister (one of the finest horror movies in recent memory in my opinion), Deliver Us From Evil »

Currently on the set of Sinister 2, before he heads off to direct Marvel's Doctor Strange (and you won't be surprised to hear that's a movie that we couldn't explore in this interview), he spared us time for a chat about what he's done, and what he's up to. Without further ado...
Welcome to the world of international staggered release dates! We get Deliver Us From Evil this week in the UK, whereas it had a July 4th weekend release in the Us. It seems to me that it's a more natural fit over here than there.

Lionsgate has released the new trailer for Christian E. Christiansen’s The Devil’s Hand. The film tells the story of an Amish community, New Bethlehem, which fears the potential that every girl may become possessed by the Devil on their eighteenth birthday. Several girls born on the same day are about to turn eighteen on the same day, June 6th, and of course people jump to the conclusion that they are Satan’s children. The film looks like a mix of M. Night Shyamalan’s awful The Villiage, Ken Russell’s incredible classic The Devils, Arthur Miller’s play The Crucible, with a few other paranormal horror films sprinkled throughout. Hopefully The Devil’s Hand doesn’t turn out as bad as The Village, but we don’t have to wait long to find out since the film will be released on October 10th. The film stars Colm Meaney (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, »

After Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, director Scott Derrickson returns to tingle more spines with this supernatural chiller based on the accounts of New York cop-turned-occultist Ralph Sarchie. Eric Bana plays the streetwise officer who is forced to put skepticism aside after making an unholy connection between a series of disturbing calls. Unable to explain what he's seeing, Sarchie hooks up with a young priest (Edgar Ramirez) who convinces him that the offenders are merely the vessels of darker forces »
It’s another film involving an exorcism; something that writer-director Scott Derrickson is passionate about, having penned and directed none other than The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and the relatively comparable horror Sinister. The problem with dealing with the same supernatural subject matter, is Derrickson gets compared with his last demon-exercising flick, creating a rod for his back in having to up his game. Sadly, it’s not enough in this day and age to throw out the usual moniker “based on a true story” because it currently feels like every scary movie is. However, Derrickson has tried something a little different by blending the cop and horror genres and positioned the ever solid Eric Bana as the lead.
Based on real-life cop/occult investigator Ralph Sarchie’s accounts, Bana is Sarchie, the NYPD cop, too. Things get a whole lot sinister for father-of-one Sarchie after a dead baby is »

Sinister 2 is underway and will start filming next week in Chicago with Shannyn Sossamon as the film’s new lead. Also, in a bit of good news for fans of the original film, James Ransone is returning as “Deputy So and So.” Maybe we’ll even learn his name this time (or maybe not, I have a theory that they will find a clever way to hold back). While original director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil) isn’t returning behind the camera, he did team with C. Robert Cargill (who also worked on the original film) to pen the script and will of course produce the movie alongside Jason Blum. As far as a helmer is concerned, they’re entrusting the reins on this on to Ciaran Foy, who directed the excellent Citadel (definitely check it out if you haven’t seen it »

"The crazy 'acid trip' way of traveling through dimensions and traveling through realms, is something that we think is very, very cool..." said Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige, about the developing "Doctor Strange" 3D multi-million dollar budgeted motion picture, paving the way for the next phase of the 'Marvel Cinematic Universe'.
"(Strange) is a classic Marvel origin story, because he’s got one of the best origins ever, and it’s our opportunity to take that left turn into the supernatural.
"Now what is the definition of ‘supernatural’? It varies...based in physics and based in quantum mechanics...an explanation of how sorcerers do what they do..."
"I wanted it really bad," said Derrickson. "More than any other project that I've gone after, I felt compelled to do everything »

Last time Joaquin Phoenix found his name mentioned with regard to a superhero movie it was rumors he'd be playing Lex Luthor in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, a role that eventually went to Jesse Eisenberg. Now his name is back in the trades in connection to Marvel's Doctor Strange, which is to be directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose). The news comes from The Wrap where it's said Phoenix's name is "mentioned most often" for the role and "is in consideration and has had discussions about the movie." Adding to the rumor, The Playlist notes tweets in which Phoenix was apparently seen in Connecticut in comic book stores purchasing "Doctor Strange" comics. https://twitter.com/KevinInChains/statuses/490269444568928257 https://twitter.com/TonytheNunes/statuses/491959469652582400 Meanwhile, if you thought Benedict Cumberbatch was the one taking the role, he recently told MTV it just wouldn't work.

Sinister 2 is just over a year away. Focus Features announced today that the horror sequel will land in wide release on August 21st, 2015. While original director Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil) isn’t returning behind the camera, he did team with C. Robert Cargill (who also worked on the original film) to pen the script and will of course produce the movie alongside Jason Blum. If you saw Sinister you can probably guess why there aren’t any announcements about Ethan Hawke coming back. I really liked the first film’s use of imagery and I think the general mood of the piece was its most successful element. So I’m glad that they’re entrusting the reins on this on to Ciaran Foy, who directed the excellent Citadel (seriously, seek that one out if you haven’t seen it already). Hit the »

Exorcism is a bizarre and unsettling thing. Filmmaker Scott Derrickson certainly understands that, which is why he keeps making movies about demonic possession. His newest, Deliver Us from Evil, isn’t exactly getting the best critical reception. Granted, neither did The Exorcism of Emily Rose and that movie remains a hoot to re-watch. Regardless of quality, exorcism and Catholic-inflected horror has its own inherent draw. The images are often compelling by their very nature, particularly if they’re composed well. This isn’t a cultural subgenre simply because The Exorcist made such an impression on its own back in 1973, though that obviously helped. With all of that said, you may not want to risk Deliver Us from Evil even if you are, like me, something of a nut for profane and terrifying Catholic imagery. I have an alternative for you. Stay home and watch some Blue Exorcist, a Japanese animated series currently available to stream for free »

Fans of "Community" and "The Soup" might be surprised when they see the Joel McHale that’s appearing in the supernatural thriller Deliver Us from Evil when it debuts this week in theaters everywhere...
Light of the usual trademark levity McHale has perfected, his character, Butler, is a physically intimidating cop with a penchant for daggers.
Standing in the pouring rain after a scene where McHale was chasing someone (or something) through the weathered streets of the South Bronx, Joel’s sense of humor suddenly came roaring back, even though the surprisingly tall comedian still towered over us as we started the interview in between takes.
Joel McHale: Hello, nerds.
Dread Central: What led you to take your first role in a horror film?
Jm: It’s my fourth.
Jm: Nah, I can’t remember. What made me want to take it? Because it’s an incredible »
