In the latter part of his acting career it seems Nicolas Cage ('Season of the Witch', 'Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance') more often than not gets attracted towards movies with a slight unusualness to them. Projects with a supernatural/sci-fi theme built in definitely appear to appeal to him. That definitely goes for Kellie Madison's ('Dear Mr Gacy') new upcoming project 'Hotel 33'. Cage (below)has signed up to star in the new mystery thriller project based on a true story which Madison will both write and direct. The project is a co-production between Foresight Unlimited, Envision Entertainment and Emmett/Furla Films with Open Road Films set to distribute. Head below to check out the plot details. »
Some fans of cult show Misfits will never forgive Robert Sheehan for abandoning the show after the second series. Mostly because he was an absolute star. Needless to say, he is getting his name out there in the world of cinema with roles in Killing Bono, Season Of The Witch, and what is set to be his biggest role to date in Ya adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones. The film will see Lily Collins as a young ‘chosen one’ who must battle dark forces in New York’s underworld. Sheehan stars as Simon Lewis who, judging by the trailers, is a comedic human character that gets caught up in the other world.
The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones is released 23rd August. It stars Lily Collins, Lena Headey, Aidan Turner, Jamie Campbell Bower, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Kevin Zegers, Robert Sheehan, Kevin Durand, Jared Harris, and Jemima West.

Having essentially emasculated one of cinema’s greatest bogeymen by giving Michael Myers a troubled back story in his Halloween remakes, you’d be forgiven for not expecting too much from Rob Zombie’s The Lords Of Salem. Usually more interested in cribbing over-the-top theatrical aesthetics from his favourite horror movies and exercising a visual style and tone from Seventies exploitation flicks, The Lords Of Salem sees horror’s greatest magpie deliver a surprisingly restrained, atmospheric little creepshow that genuinely chills, building a growing sense of spooky disquiet right up until its final act where sense and subtlety go straight out of the window and Rob has his wife ride a goat (nowhere near as erotic as it sounds or should be).
Opening with a flashback to 17th century Salem with a coven of naked crones led by Meg Foster dancing around a fire, flicking themselves »

Greetings from the apocalypse! You might think that this particular Mad Max would enjoy watching Tom Cruise fight evil robots in a future nuclear-blasted wasteland, but Nope! "Oblivion" is a dud, though that doesn't mean we can't make it through the next few days as long as we stick together and don't cross the Dmz. Smoke 'em if ya got 'em, troops, we're goin' in …
Friday, April 19
Pow! In Theaters
Xenu's own Tom Cruise returns to comfortable sci-fi territory this week with "Oblivion," which I will henceforth refer to as "The Matrix Redressed." Cruise is the only living boy in post-apocalyptic New York, where he and a stuffy British chick (Andrea Riseborough, natch) maintain giant water vacuums when they're not having PG-13 swimming pool sex … that is, until the mysterious Olga Kurylenko arrives from outer space. »

Scoring hundreds of meaningless deaths, the Friday the 13th series is one of the most universally recognized horror franchises in film history. Set around a machete wielding masked villain terrorizing campers, the deaths increased in creativity and quantity as the sequel numbers got higher and higher.
When faced with the daunting task of selecting only 10 to mention for inclusion, I spent several hours watching and researching all of the deaths this cheerful series has to offer. Needless to say, this list would have been impossible to create were it not for other horror movie fanatics out there who also enjoy sharing their opinions. Thank you, YouTube users and HorrorFilmWiki contributors for making this slightly less challenging than it had to be!
The first thing you will notice about this list is that Jason is responsible for all, but one, of the entries. There is an entire movie (Friday the 13th: A New Beginning »

E. B. White once wrote, “Analyzing humor is like dissecting a frog. Few people are interested and the frog dies of it.” Analyzing trilogies seems to the same. The entire point is to enjoy them. Still, given the many sins to be found in film, there are worse things than movie trilogies but few have become more prominent or unavoidable. In terms of definitions, a trilogy only means three “individual” (animated, live-action, etc.) films are tied together which leaves a lot of room in seeing something as a trilogy.
Currently, negative reviews over trilogies highlight how easily and predictably they start off well but soon degenerate at a rapid pace. Then, too, there cases where once was good enough and added treatments are not welcome. David Lynch’s Dune thankfully has not become a trilogy though it sits there waiting to be given birth. In rare cases, yes, a trilogy may be badly called for. »

And so it continues. To mark the end of another week in horror comes this new addition to the 'Pacific Rim' gallery. It's not exactly a landmark image...in fact it's literally a pile of shit! I think now that's your lot for the time being, you must be as bored looking at them as we are posting them. If they continue to churn out these pretty pointless promotional pics then we'll simply collate them and post them all up in one go. 'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam leads the Guillermo Del Toro hemed sci-fi action feature due for release this coming July. Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls'), Ron Perlman ('Season of the Witch'), Idris Elba ('The Wire'), Charlie Day ('Horrible Bosses'), Robert Kazinsky ('Eastenders'), Clifton Collins Jr and Max Martini also star. Check the new image below. »
Every 24 hours at the moment seems to signify the revealing of a new 'Pacific Rim' image. In the past couple of days another duo of pics from the Guillermo Del Toro helmed action thriller have landed featuring what appears to be a massive clean-up session most likely during a post-creature invasion state. Charlie Hunnam ('Sons of Anarchy'), Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls'), Ron Perlman ('Season of the Witch'), Idris Elba ('The Wire'), Charlie Day ('Horrible Bosses'), Robert Kazinsky ('Eastenders'), Clifton Collins Jr and Max Martini all star. Check out the new images below. »

Director: Simon West.
Running Time: 96 minutes.
Synopsis: A recently released thief trying to go straight frantically searches for his missing teenage daughter who has been kidnapped and locked in the trunk of a taxi by a former criminal partner.
In many people’s eyes, it’s difficult to know where it all went wrong for Nicolas Cage. The Oscar-winner may still be a box-office draw when in the right project and gives genuine oomph to many roles, but he’s been involved in more guff than greats. Cage’s latest effort sees him reunite with his Con Air director Simon West, and while the duo’s 1997 all-star action spectacle is a massive guilty pleasure, the fact Stolen went straight-to-dvd in the States suggests it may be better to “put the bunny back in the box” and »

The Crazies director Breck Eisner is set to direct a new film that might possibly star Vin Diesel called The Witch Hunter. Diesel is currently in talks for the role, but this seems like a movie I could see him taking on.
The story follows an immortal witch hunter "who partners with his natural enemy, a female witch, to stop the covens of New York City from unleashing a plague on humanity." The movie is being developed over at Summit Entertainment, and they want Diesel to play the immortal Witch Hunter.
Hopefully this ends up being better than the last couple of witch movies that have been made like Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters and Nicolas Cage's Season of the Witch. Those are the only two that stick out in my mind right now, and they both were pretty bad.
I liked what Eisner did with The Crazies, »

Halloween 3 Season of the Witch has a really bad reputation going for it. There is but one reason for that bad rap no Michael Myers. I will admit when I first saw this one oh maybe 20 years ago ( Im really aging myself here) I was kind of pissed too for the same reason. I kept waiting for Michael to show up to destroy the people of Silver Shamrock Toysor as their ultra secret weapon of terror. Either way would have been fine but I was severely disappointed to see that he never showed up. »
It's time for a few more additions to the ever growing 'Pacific Rim' gallery. The selection of new pics from the Guillermo Del Toro helmed sci-fi epic comes courtesy of USA Today and features some new snaps of Charlie Hunnam ('Sons of Anarchy'), Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls') and the gigantic Jaegers.

Head below and cast your eyes on the new images. »
We're surely still far from any real asset explosion for Guillermo Del Toro's new future sci-fi Summer hit 'Pacific Rim' but at least we can sit and admire the latest trailer from the production which featured at Qualcomm's 2013 CES event in Las Vegas yesterday. Charlie Hunnam ('Sons of Anarchy'), Rinko Kikuchi ('Assault Girls'), Ron Perlman ('Season of the Witch'), Idris Elba ('The Wire'), Charlie Day ('Horrible Bosses'), Robert Kazinsky ('Eastenders'), Clifton Collins Jr and Max Martini all star in 'Pacific Rim' which hits theatres this coming July. Head below to check out the moind blowing new trailer. »
The Hobbit gets Chainsawed! After three weeks on top, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was chased out of first place by Texas Chainsaw 3D, which sliced its way to #1 with a $23 million opening. Typically on the first January weekend, studios let the holiday releases continue to fight it out, half-heartedly offering only a new horror release with low expectations. Sometimes they get a surprise success (like last year's The Devil Inside), and sometimes not (like Season Of The Witch and »
