Man-eating pumpkins, buckets of blood and Satan himself make Tales of Halloween trailer truly crazy

14 July 2015 3:29 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Man-eating pumpkins, buckets of blood, flesh-eating zombies and Satan himself make the trailer for Tales of Halloween absolutely bonkers.

The upcoming anthology film gathers 11 cutting-edge horror directors – including Game of Thrones' Neil Marshall and Saw III's Darren Lynn Bousman – to create vignettes that celebrate the horror of Halloween.

Tales of Halloween takes place in one small American town terrorized by ghosts, demons and aliens all in the same night.

The film casts Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Lin Shaye (Insidious) and Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga) in its terrifying tales.

As a treat for horror fans, there are cameos from genre directors Joe Dante and John Landis as well as The Fog and Swamp Thing actress Adrienne Barbeau.

Tales of Halloween arrives just in time for the spooky season on October 16. »

Exclusive: ‘Saw’ actor Costas Mandylor open to franchise return

6 July 2015 12:41 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Saw was one of the films that pioneered what has now come to be known as ‘torture porn’. Arriving in 2004 the film had two strangers awaken in a grotty bathroom, each shackled to a pipe. There only way out was to saw through their ankles with a rusty, and rather flimsy, hacksaw blade. The pair were part of a ‘trap’ devised by a deviant new serial killer who wasn’t really a serial killer. Sounds confusing I know, but Jigsaw aka John Kramer, believed that confronting people with their morality and their indiscretions at the same time made them appreciate life more if they lived. Granted, most of his subjects died horrifically rather than survived.

The series ran for seven films, the last one featuring the added 3D factor, and had several incarnations of Jigsaw continue the work started by Kramer. The first few films went from strength to strength at the box office, »

9 Surprisingly Great Horror Threequels

5 June 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal

Horror sequels are notoriously horrible. After a great first movie, a franchise will often descend into total crap as the killer or demon comes back year after year for no discernible reason other than box office takings. Can’t they just leave a good thing alone?

This weekend, the third instalment in the surprisingly good Insidious franchise hits theaters, which begs the question: at what point does a horror series tend to go downhill? Are there any second sequels that are comparable to the original? Can Insidious Chapter III match up with the first two, or is it destined to fail?

There are some god awful or generally disappointing threequels in horror, like Saw III, Rec 3 and V/H/S Viral to name just a few. By the time these movies came out, it became clear that the series were heading down the wrong path, and much of the »

10 Most Magnificent Bast*rds In Cinema

31 May 2015 3:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The ‘magnificent bast*rd’ is a long-running and incredibly popular archetype in all kinds of narratives and genres: essentially, he or she is a Machiavellian planner, often ruthlessly, always audaciously so.

Sometimes the protagonist, usually the antagonist by default, the magnificent bast*rd will often walk the line between the two, as well as between hero and villain. Their motivation will vary, but one thing will remain constant – always more than two or three steps ahead, the magnificent bast*rd will have planned for everything you’re thinking of, and then some. Even if something goes horribly wrong with their scheme, they’ll have a back-up that will achieve the same outcome, or will have an escape route set up to try again later.

Mostly though, what distinguishes a magnificent bast*rd from your common or garden supervillain is their panache, the bold, show stealing nature of their plans. »

Cannes: ‘Abattoir’ Sequel ‘Dwelling’ Unveiled by Versatile (Exclusive)

14 May 2015 10:10 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Darren Lynn Bousman (who directed “Saw II,” “Saw III” and “Saw IV”) is set to write and direct “The Dwelling,” the sequel to Bousman’s “Abattoir,” a high-concept horror-thriller based on the Radical Publishing comic book miniseries.

The sequel will be repped in international markets by Paris-based Versatile, which is already selling “Abattoir.”

“The Dwelling” will be produced by Jesse Berger of Radical Studios, and Brent C. Johnson, who partnered on “Abattoir.” Kevin Niu, Rob Cain and Michael Yedwab will exec produce.

In “The Dwelling,” Dayton Callie will reprise his “Abbatoir” role of Jebediah Crone, the enigmatic and evil man who buys homes where horrific tragedies have occurred. “The Dwelling” will take place some time before the franchise’s first film and will center on Crone’s character, unveiling some of his dark secrets and motivations.

“What is most exhilarating as a filmmaker about the universe of ‘Abattoir’ is that »

Film Review: Relentlessly Action-Packed ‘Furious 7’ Actually Has a Story, Too

3 April 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – I’ve never classified myself as a “Fast & Furious” franchise fan. Nor have I been a hater. I’ve fallen somewhere in between – willingly watching the popcorn flicks but then quickly going about my life as fast as the furious action ended. Until “Furious 7”…

And it’s not just because we’ve lost Paul Walker much too soon, which, while extremely unfortunate, also unfortunately has the burden of being a boon to this film.

Rating: 4.0/5.0

Going into it, I was just as curious how he’d be handled as I was about anything else about it. Since he can’t be in the eighth film, would Paul Walker as Brian O’Conner – Dominic Toretto’s close buddy – be killed off? Would it insensitively happen in a car crash? Or would writer Chris Morgan and director James Wan (“Saw,” “Saw III,” “Insidious,” “Insidious: Chapter 2,” “The Conjuring”) surprise us »

How horror franchises redefine themselves over time

28 February 2015 7:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

What sets one horror franchise apart from another, and how do they evolve over time? As Rec 4 lands on disc, we take a look...

The first instalment in any long running horror franchise is, generally, the one people reckon is the best. And in a lot of cases, they might be right. But as franchises get longer and start clocking up four or more movies in the same universe, things tend to change.

It might be that producers have taken note of popular actors or elements in previous films and want to expand on them; it might be that years have passed and tastes have changed; or it might be that new directors want to put their stamp on a story, but either way, the fifth or sixth movie in a series is usually pretty different from the first one. And the thing that a franchise becomes known for might »
