Dublin 2017: Exclusive First Look At Nails Trailer, Inside the Horror Hospital

30 January 2017 11:30 AM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

First time director Dennis Bartok's irish hospital-set horror, Nails, has it's world premiere at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival (Adiff) on February 20th, so it's about time for the marketing blitz to begin. Screen Anarchy has been granted an exclusive first look at the trailer for the Nails, and we are excited to chare it with you. The trailer sets up the location and the bad guy, but leaves plenty of space for your imagination to go wild with possibilities. Nails stars Shauna MacDonald (The Descent) and comedian Ross Noble in a story about a woman trapped in her hospital room with a malevolent spirit.

Sundance Midnight Memories: The Descent (2006)

19 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Welcome back, readers! With the 2017 Sundance Film Festival beginning this week, we thought it would be fun to take a look back at some of the great midnight movies that have come out of the fest over the years. Be sure to check back here each day this week for more Midnight Memories from Daily Dead!]

Last January marked ten years since Neil Marshall’s The Descent was screened at the Sundance Film Festival. Over a decade after it was featured in the Park City at Midnight lineup, The Descent is almost universally considered a modern horror classic, which is unfortunate for yours truly because until recently, I’d never actually seen it. But after finally venturing into this cave, I am happy to say that this is one of those rare movies that completely lives up to the hype.

For those unfamiliar with the basics, The Descent follows six women as they go on a spelunking trip in the North Carolina stretch of the Appalachian Mountains. A year before, one of the group members, Sarah (Shauna Macdonald), lost both her husband and her daughter in a car accident, and her friend Juno (Natalie Mendoza) sees this as an opportunity to bond in the aftermath of the tragedy. »
