Sometimes it’s psychological. Sometimes it’s visceral. It can be a masked killer’s twisted pastime. A labyrinth our poor heroes must find their way out of. Perhaps a nasty round of torture by the Big Bad. Whatever it is, the sick feeling of impending doom overcomes us as we realize the characters might not make it out alive. Sometimes they can think their way through. Sometimes they can fight. But when the exits are closed and the madman decides to get creative, all bets are off.

Her husband is Neil Marshall, director of The Descent and Doomsday and she hangs out with some of the genre's brightest young Turks. So perhaps its no surprise that her brainchild, the new anthology film Tal [Continued ...] »

"I am having so much fun with this character, probably a little too much fun. Occasionally in a career, you get one or two chances to just really enjoy your work and have it not feel like work—even though it is hard work. It's just a blessing. I'll play her as long as I can, as long as I'm standing. I'd play her in a wheelchair. I love Missy. She's great fun." The new season of "Doctor Who" returns this Saturday.

Director: Paul Hyett
Running Time: 95 minutes
Synopsis: A late night train full of passengers breaks down en-route to it’s final destination during a full moon. The group of strangers must band together when they find themselves stalked by an unseen presence.
Paul Hyett made his career in the business working on special effects and make-up before branching out into directing. His work in the field of effects saw him work with Neil Marshall on both Doomsday and The Descent, two truly brilliant British action / horror movies. It seems Hyett has learned a thing or two from Marshall as his third directorial offering Howl is a great British horror.
The film may be called Howl and set at the full moon, yet the monsters aren’t so much the expected werewolves, but rather wendigo-like creatures. Whatever the classification, »

When passengers on a train are attacked by a creature, they must band together in order to survive until morning.
Train guard Joe has been forced to work on a very-late running service across the countryside from London Waterloo by his newly-promoted idiot supervisor. Being that it’s a late train, its passengers consist of an elderly couple going home, a couple of “youths”, a drunken football fan complete with kebab (and the runs), and a couple of hard-working business folk who can’t seem to leave the office behind them.

Though starting out as a feature filmmaker with the likes of "The Descent," "Doomsday" and "Centurion," director Neil Marshall has made more of a name for himself in recent years on television helming key episodes of big-budget shows like "Game of Thrones," "Black Sails" and "Hannibal".
He'll soon return to the big screen though as he's been set to direct the futuristic revenge thriller "The Sentence" for EuropaCorp. Creighton Rothenberger and Katrin Benedikt ("Olympus Has Fallen") have penned the script which is described as being in the vein of "Death Wish".
Marc Helwig will produce. No word on when production is slated to begin, or how his commitment to this will impact his ability to work on various TV shows.

“There is no name for what this man is.”
Well, here’s a horse of a different color. Hannibal has jumped ahead three years, upending its status quo even as it calls back repeatedly to its pilot. Jack recruits Will to rejoin the FBI, Will visits Hannibal seeking an expert consultant, and Will visits a blood-spattered house and slips into the murderer’s mind. The game’s the same, but the players have changed. And what a difference it makes. Will, brittle and twitchy as ever, has found peace and family with Molly and her 11-year-old son. Hannibal, stripped of dignity and freedom as a result of his ploy to remain close to Will, is bumping up against the limits of his memory palace while a bitter Alana chafes at Chilton’s company at the Baltimore Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

"To say that I am overjoyed, excited and eager to attend FrightFest as a guest is putting it mildly. This festival has been on my radar for some time and to be included and have four films screening is a welcome nightmare from which I hope never to wake," said Crampton, whose new films Sun Choke and Road Games will première at the festival.
Also on the guest list are Braveheart and Trainspotting star James Cosmo, The Descent director Neil Marshall and Eighties pop icon Toyah Willcox, who has recently revived her horror career. Candyman director Bernard Rose will be there to introduce his new take on Frankenstein while Corin Hardy will take a break from work on his remake. »
