USA buys alien drama The Terrestrial from Annabelle writer

12 December 2014 8:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Annabelle writer Gary Dauberman has just locked down another big deal. Deadline reports that USA has decided to pick up his alien-drama project in development, The Terrestrial.

The Terrestrial follows a schizophrenic man who is forced to confront his troubled past with his estranged daughter, who has since gone missing. He comes to believe that his daughter’s kidnappers may just be the same group of aliens… yes aliens… responsible for abducted him 10 years prior. Dauberman will act as execute producer on the project, along with Fabrik’s Mikkel Bondesen, Henrik Bastin and Kristen Campo.

Dauberman got his big break when he sold his spec script Burst to Mandate Pictures back in 2013. The script is currently being produced by Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert with The Descent director Neil Marshall helming the film. Burst centers on a group of people, holed up in a lodge during a terrible blizzard, who begin to spontaneously combust one-by-one. »

He joins a directorial team of horror aficionados including Neil Marshall (The Descent) and Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV), whose 2012 film The Devil’s Carnival should be seen by all fans of the genre. The remainder of the lineup includes Axelle Carolyn, Adam Gierasch, Andrew Kasch, Mike Mendez, Dave Parker, Ryan Schifrin, John Skipp and Paul Solet.

Tales Of Halloween will consist of 10 stories woven together through a shared theme of the holiday. The stories will take place in an American suburb and promise all sorts of ghouls, aliens, imps and axe murderers, »

Descend Into Horror With Trailer For Aja Produced The Pyramid

24 November 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

A long time collaborator with Alexandre Aja - for whom he wrote Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Mirrors while also producing Piranha 3D - Gregory Levasseur steps into the director's chair for his feature debut The Pyramid, with Aja returning the favor and serving in a producer role.And what have they cooked up? If the trailer is anything to go by the duo is gunning for the sort of subterranean claustrophobia that drove Neil Marshall's The Descent with the action transposed to the inside of an ancient Egyptian pyramid. Yes, there's something still alive in there and it may not have been the best idea to crack it open.Take a look at the trailer below....

New Horror Anthology ‘Tales of Halloween’ Announced

5 November 2014 7:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Anthology horror films are a tricky beast. The rule of thumb is, usually only half of the segments are generally satisfying while the remainder leave a lot to be desired (save for the few successes such as Asylum, Creepshow, and Trick ‘r Treat). Epic Pictures Group recently announced that they will help produce a new horror anthology set for release next year around Halloween. The new anthology, Tales of Halloween, is based on a concept created by Soulmate director Axelle Carolyn.

Twitch reports:

The ten stories will be woven together by their shared theme of Halloween night in an American suburb, where ghouls, imps, aliens and axe murderers appear for one night only to terrorize unsuspecting residents. Apart from Carolyn the list of directors, under the name The October Society, includes her husband Neil Marshall (The Descent), Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!), Joe Begos (Almost Human), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, »

Horror Anthology Film ‘Tales of Halloween’ to Feature Segments Directed by Neil Marshall, Darren Lynn Bousman, John Skipp & More

1 November 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Every year, crackling bonfires, a steaming witch’s brew, and the crunch of dead leaves come together for a creepy Halloween night concoction that makes one feel like anything could happen. Michael Dougherty’s 2007 anthology film Trick ’r Treat certainly embraced the magic of this night and now a group of directors collectively called The October Society have begun development on Tales of Halloween.

A film featuring ten interconnected segments from 11 directors, Tales of Halloween begins shooting this November. Horror readers fond of the splatterpunk genre may be happy to hear that John Skipp, co-author of The Light at the End, the sought after Fright Night novelization, Animals, and many more novels will co-direct one of the segments with Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy). Neil Marshall (The Descent),Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III & IV), and Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider!) are among the other directors. »

Tales Of Halloween Horror Anthology Film Coming from Neil Marshall and Darren Bousman

31 October 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Horror movie fans have a new anthology film project in development called Tales of Halloween. The film follows in the footsteps of previously released horror anthologies such as the Trick 'r Treat, V/H/S, and The ABCs of Death. I've always enjoyed watching movies like this! I grew up on films and shows such as Tales From the Crypt, Black Sabbath, Tales From the Dark Side, and the Creepshow. As long as Tales of Halloween turns out to be fun and entertaining I'll watch it.

The news come from Deadline, who reports that the movie will consist of ten segments from eleven directors. It will be an interconnected series of stories, and they will all be set in "a sleepy American suburb terrorized by ghouls, aliens, and killers one Halloween night."

The directors lined up to direct segments for the movie include Neil Marshall (The Descent), Darren Bousman (Saw II, »

Upcoming Tales Of Halloween Anthology Boasts Great Horror Lineup!!; Begins Shooting In November!

31 October 2014 12:49 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I’m an anthology nut. Sure there are definitely a decent amount of uneven and/or straight up bad ones, but the ones that do it right, Really work well for me. I just love the idea of horror filmmakers taking the short form of filmmaking and telling quality stories in a limited amount of time, which makes this announcement that much more exciting to write about.

Epic Pictures Group, the studio responsible for Big Ass Spider!, The Aggression Scale, Sushi Girl and many other popular genre films, have announced their deal to finance and produce Tales Of Halloween, a horror anthology boasting a pretty impressive roster of genre directors each putting their own stamp on the anthology format. The lineup includes Joe Begos (Almost Human), Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III & IV, The Barrens), Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons, Fractured), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy »

Darren Bousman, Neil Marshall & More to Tell 'Tales of Halloween'

30 October 2014 3:26 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The offerings on the big screen for Halloween this weekend are pretty weak with the only straight-up horror film in wide release being last weekend's holdover of Ouija. But if you're looking for a fun, thrilling, crazy ride, you should definitely check out Nightcrawler with Jake Gyllenhaal. However, it seems appropriate as All Hallow's Eve approaches that we get news of a holiday centric horror anthology in the works. Following in the footsteps of films like V/H/S and The ABCs of Death, Epic Pictures Group is working on a new collection of horror shorts called Tales of Halloween, with 10 segments from 11 directors. More below! Deadline reports filmmakers include Darren Bousman (Saw II, III and IV), Neil Marshall ("Game of Thrones," The Descent), Joe Begos (Almost Human, not the TV show), Axelle Carolyn (Soulmate), Adam Gierasch (Night of the Demons), Andrew Kasch (Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy »

Horror Anthology Tales Of Halloween Lands Neil Marshall, Darren Bousman And More

30 October 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Do you like your horror in easily digestible bite-sized pieces thrown together by a spooky wraparound story? That’s right, you got it, I’m referring to the horror genre’s latest trend – anthology franchises. As V/H/S and The ABC’s Of Death have proven, fans are happily gobbling up this new stylistic angle, and now there’s another one afoot. Deadline reports that the Epic Pictures Group are assembling a new anthology called Tales Of Halloween.

The report suggests that this new approach will enlist a great many horror maestros for the upcoming outing. The biggest names leading the pack are Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) and Darren Bousman (Saw), who’ll no doubt attract fans who may not be familiar with some of the lesser-known filmmakers. That’s inevitably one of the most promising aspects of this type of film; offering fledgling directors the opportunity »

Review: Soulmate

28 October 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Actress, screenwriter, journalist, and make-up artist Axelle Carolyn recently added “director” to her long list of credentials with her debut flick, Soulmate.  After a couple of short films, Carolyn finally tackled a feature, and did so with wonderful results.  Presented by her husband, Neil Marshall (The Descent) Axelle Carolyn has molded an elegant, haunting, and refreshing ghost story that focuses less on spooky situations and instead showcases the way we grieve, experience heartbreak, and try to move past it all.

Soulmate tells the story of recently widowed Audrey (Anna Walton) who after a failed suicide attempt, moves to the countryside in an attempt to clear her head and move past the death of her husband.  However, she soon realizes that she’s not alone in this remote cottage.  Despite the overwhelming evidence that the cottage is haunted by a ghost named Douglas Talbot (Tom Wisdom), Audrey stays and develops a peculiar relationship with him. »

Constantine Review: “Non Est Asylum” (Season 1, Episode 1)

25 October 2014 12:19 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

We’ve already sat through the premieres of Gotham and The Flash, and new seasons of Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and we’ve still got the premiere of iZombie and Netflix’s Daredevil to get through before the TV year is over. But now, it’s time for Constantine, NBC’s highly anticipated series which debuted tonight.

Based on the long-running DC Comics/Vertigo book Hellblazer, and the subject of a somewhat successful yet critically derided Keanu Reeves movie, NBC is hoping that this paranormal detective/master of the dark arts will make a fine Friday night companion for their established hit Grimm. In Constantine‘s favor is that it ably sets up an easy-to-replicate procedural-style format. The pilot is efficiently creepy, and star Matt Ryan seems at least engaging in the title role. But will Constantine prove as engaging as some of its fellow comic book series? That remains to be seen. »

Neil Marshall on Directing Constantine and Figuring Out New Ways to Kill People on Game of Thrones

24 October 2014 10:15 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Violence dominates director Neil Marshall's work, from his 2002 werewolf action film Dog Soldiers to his battle-centric Game of Thrones episode "Watchers on the Wall" from earlier this year, the latter of which earned Marshall an Emmy nomination. Marshall grew up in Northern England, reveling in hyperviolent horror films that were banned during the U.K.'s Video Nasties scare of the mid-1980s. Now 44, he's gone on to helm The Descent, one of the most viscerally disturbing horror films of recent memory, and the pilot episode of Constantine, a dark, supernatural drama based on DC Comics' Hellblazer series. Vulture talked to Marshall about decapitations, ex–Sex Pistol John Lydon, and taboo VHS tapes.Watching the Constantine pilot, I couldn't help but wonder if there was a conscious effort to distinguish the show's style from the look of the [2005] Frances Lawrence/Keanu Reeves film ...We tried to make the »

Yes, Constantine Is a Show About a Man Who Fights Demons, But I Didn’t Believe a Second of It

23 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

I didn't believe a second of NBC's Constantine, adapted from DC Comics' Hellblazer series. That might seem a strange complaint given that the story concerns an exorcist/demonologist (Matt Ryan) who travels the world, battling demons who've possessed innocent mortals while trying to right a tragic mistake. It must be a tone thing and a performance thing: The show's got the atmosphere and visuals things nailed down.As directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) and overseen by executive producers Daniel Cerone (Dexter, The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Dark City, and way too many comics adaptations to list here), the first installment, which airs Friday night at 10 p.m., doesn't lack for production value. Possessed people swing and twirl through the air, hordes of cockroaches skitter, the ground opens up, the sky goes dark with purplish cumulus clouds, and a horned demon lunges from a hellmouth, »
