If there’s anything more impressive than the way that Fear the Walking Dead’s Luciana handles a walker in this exclusive sneak peek at Sunday’s episode (AMC, 9/8c), it’s the way that she handles Nick.

NBC’s broadcast of the Summer Olympics’ closing ceremony on Sunday night drew 16.9 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, ticking up from Saturday’s Rio lows yet down 45 and 57 percent from the end of the 2012 London games.
(Also, per our sister site Deadline’s handy chart, Rio appears to have delivered the least watched Olympics closing ceremony in… a long time.)

Following the three very short videos released yesterday via Snapchat, the full set of new teasers for the upcoming sixth season of Ryan Murphy’s American Horror Story have been released into the wild frontier. As before, they’re so brief as to completely obfuscate what exactly the season is about, but what they do show suggests that it will be drawing inspiration from American history as well as horror classics like The Hills Have Eyes. You can get a glimpse at what I… »
Arriving in theaters everywhere this weekend, Lights Out is set to terrify audiences and give fans a new reason to fear the dark. The film was one of my favorites at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival, which is why I was eager to catch up with the movie’s producer, Lawrence Grey, at the recent press day to talk about his initial impressions of director David F. Sandberg’s original short film, the process of adapting the concept of Lights Out for the big screen, where they’d like to take a sequel if all goes well with this release, and more.
Congrats on the film, Lawrence. I had a chance to see it at the La Film Festival and had so much fun with it. I loved »

Ahead of its release in the UK this Friday, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the horror-comedy Bachelor Games, which has been described as The Hills Have Eyes meets The Hangover. Check it out here courtesy of Gravitas Ventures and Strike Films…
When five friends embark on a bachelor weekend in Argentina, everyone expects the usual hedonistic business. They do not expect to find themselves stranded, wounded, and hunted through the Andes. But that’s just what happens when an elaborate scheme for revenge goes horribly awry.
The Hangover meets The Hills Have Eyes with a Shyamalan-esque twist, Bachelor Games stars a bright young cast led by Charlie Bewley (Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, Nashville, forthcoming The Lake with J.K. Simmons), Jack Gordon (Fishtank, Northern Soul with Steve Coogan) and Jack Doolan (Ricky Gervais’ Cemetery Junction, Cockney’s Vs. Zombies).
Bachelor Games comes to VOD in the UK on July 8th. »

After playing the demo of Resident Evil 7, I had to ask myself, “Could this be the franchise true return to horror?”
Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour
I was completely oblivious that a new Resident Evil game was even in the works until I caught word of E3’s announcement late last night that a playable demo would be available after midnight. My initial reaction upon reading was a dual combination of a groan and an eye roll. Let’s be honest. Since the original debuted on Playstation 20 years ago, there have been, at best, a total of four quality games under the franchise’s belt that have actually satiated the blood thirst of survival horror fans. Personally, I was never a fan of RE4’s zombie-less stylistic changes and was even more unimpressed with the gun-heavy shooter aspects of both 5 and 6. A lot had changed since the original’s release. The film adaptions starring Milla Jovovich are campy fun or complete and utter drivel, depending on your mood, and what began as an interesting storyline got so far from its origins that most of us could go our whole lives without hearing the phrase “Umbrella Corporation” and it would still be too soon. Later games seemed to be moving further into the poppycock universe the films created instead of delivering frightening survival horror. But something happened to me during Resident Evil 7’s demo that I never would have expected–I felt fear. We’re not talking just “kind of creepy” fear but white-knuckle, heavy-breathing, “I don’t know if I can bring myself to turn this corner” fear. Suddenly I’m thinking things I haven’t in nearly 15 years, that a new Resident Evil doesn’t have to sound like such a bad idea anymore.
Played entirely in first-person, Resident Evil 7 :Biohazard (the official title) puts you in control of an unknown person who has woken up in a dilapidated farmhouse. The first thing that comes to mind is that you’re in the middle of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre; rotting carcasses litter the floor, flies
Resident Evil 7 Teaser: Beginning Hour
buzz around your ears, blood adorns walls and floors alike. As you explore the seemingly abandoned estate, you come across a video tape that, when you pop it into the Vcr, allows you to control the cameraman of a small TV crew who has previously investigated the house. After a little exposition explaining the legend of the family that once occupied the house, one of your crew goes missing, and well, we know things are about to get much worse. I won’t go into any more details, because it’s a short demo, but I will say that RE7 is a tense and frightening experience that packs more intrigue and fear in less than an hour than most full-length horror games do.
It’s clear that Capcom is following suit of current horror breakout games like Outlast or the ill-fated, but nevertheless well-regarded, Silent Hills playable trailer, Pt. Beyond Texas Chainsaw, fans can also expect to experience some instances reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project, (the gravely-underrated) Tourist Trap and The Hills Have Eyes. If this is the future of Resident Evil, I’d be the first to congratulate them on a welcoming and effective return to pure-horror roots. I always thought it would’ve been a much more interesting franchise if they had each game be a singular concept, much like the Halloween movie franchise was originally intended to be. Though the cynic in me warns not to get my hopes up, Biohazard is still a hopeful demo that takes the series in an exciting new direction. With the slew of long-anticipated horror games coming out later this year like Outlast 2 and Friday The 13th, it would make a welcome addition to see Resident Evil finally live up to its name again when it’s released on January 24th 2017. Oh, and for those of you willing to throw up the $400 (and your lunch), RE7 will be fully compatible with the Playstation Vr, which I’m sure would make for a nauseating good time. »

As someone who has a soft spot in her heart for road-set thrillers like The Hitcher, Joy Ride, The Hills Have Eyes, Splinter, Kalifornia, Breakdown, or even the granddaddy of them all, Duel, I really had a lot of fun with writer/director Mark Pavia’s lean and mean slasher Fender Bender. It has a well-conceived story that (mostly) stays on the rails, characters that don’t feel like they’re trying to insult my intelligence as a horror fan, and a finale that takes us in unexpected directions.
Fender Bender begins by honoring its slasher roots through an opening scene that establishes its killer before picking up with the film’s true heroine, Hilary (Makenzie Vega), a high schooler who is probably having the worst day ever, and she hasn’t even met The Driver (Bill Sage) yet. She snuck out of the house to catch her cheating boyfriend (Harrison Sim) in the act, »

Gaumont and Paris-based Lgm Cinema have set The Hills Have Eyes and Horns helmer Alexandre Aja to direct The Marquis. Billed as an epic and sensual 17th century-set romance drama, it’s based on the true story of the Marquis de Montespan. The English-language, $25M pic starts shooting at the end of the year/early 2017. Inspired by Jean Teulé’s novel, Le Montespan, which has been adapted by Aja, it covers the doomed and passionate relationship between the Marquis Louis… »
Gaumont is producing with Paris-based Lgm Cinema. “The Marquis” will shoot in English with a budget in the $25 million range. Filming will begin in Europe in the last quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2017.
The film, inspired by Jean Teulé’s bestselling novel “Le Montespan” and scripted by Aja, will depict the doomed and passionate relationship between the Marquis Louis Henri de Montespan and his wife Athénaïs — a beautiful and ambitious woman who became the mistress of Louis Xiv.
The Marquis, who was passionately in love with his wife, refused all privileges and vowed to get his wife back at all costs, even if it meant defying the authority of the Sun King and facing imprisonment and death threats. He was one of the »

Eli Roth’s Cabin Fever was something of a breath of fresh air when it came out back in 2002, his debut feature displaying an obvious love of the genre while playing it just serious enough to provide an alternative to the slew of self-aware clones of Wes Craven’s Scream trilogy that had concluded two years previously.
It wasn’t a perfect film, but it was enjoyable and sufficiently gory to appeal to the horror crowd, and holds up to the day as a great Saturday night fright flick to watch with a pizza and a few beers. Quite why Roth, who is a producer on the film (one of seventeen!), decided that it needed a remake, then, is puzzling. The original came out only fourteen years ago, which is a short time frame to be remaking or rebooting a franchise (unless it’s Spider-man, of course, which has been »
