In limited theaters and VOD formats today, Lionsgate Premiere has provided us with an exclusive clip from Life On the Line, featuring John Travolta and Kate Bosworth. This scene shows John Travolta's Beau reacting to his niece Bailey, who reveals that she's pregnant, news which he is not terribly happy to receive. After raising his niece to stay away from others in his profession, Beau learns that Bailey was impregnated by one of his co-workers.
Lionsgate Premiere's Life On the Line is a riveting action thriller and family drama centered on Beau (John Travolta), his beloved niece Bailey (Kate Bosworth) and the hardworking men who risk their lives to work "on the line" and keep the electric grid running. These unsung heroes brave raging storms and dangerously dizzying heights in their dedication to keeping the populace safe. Toiling hundreds of feet in the air on wires carrying as much as 500,000 volts of electricity, »
Darren Lynn Bousman, it’s fair to say, has a spotty track record in horror cinema. The man who made the superlative remake of Mother’s Day is also responsible for the okay Saw II, the not-so-okay Saw III, and the “Oh God, we’re only barely over halfway done?” Saw IV. More recently, he’s been turning to more operatic types of horror, fusing them to his intentionally over-the-top and hammy shtick in The Devil’s Carnival, which is sort of like a Juggalo version of The Twilight Zone. Nonetheless, his heart is clearly in the horror of yesteryear, in classic ghost stories and things that go bump in the night, which has led to Abbatoir, his homage to noir, haunted houses, and Southern gothic spooks, all put in a Cuisinart and blended together.

Last month, we reported that production has started on Saw: Legacy, with the first set photo that revealed someone had dug up the grave of John Kramer, a.k.a. Jigsaw. Unfortunately, no cast members have been confirmed yet, or even spotted on the set. But today we have new details that claim Jigsaw will in fact be back, with Tobin Bell reportedly involved in a scene with another returning character, Jon Cor's Ryan from Saw 3D. None of these details have been confirmed at this time.
Bloody-Disgusting's source reports that one of the traps in this film will include "some spike strips and motorcycles." As for Jigsaw's return, we don't know how he will be brought back from the dead, but after the photo surfaced of his grave being dug up, it's possible that he is somehow revived to continue his quest to get people to appreciate the life they have. »
Marcus Dunstan is a well known name in the horror realm. Alongside Patrick Melton he wrote four of the Saw films (IV – VII), as well as directing both The Collector and The Collection. He steps ever so slightly away from the horror genre though with his latest film – The Neighbour. The film is an intense thriller with nods to horror. We caught the film at Frightfest and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The film stars Josh Stewart and Alex Essoe as John and Rosie, a young couple that have been downtrodden by life. They make their money by helping out John’s Uncle, a man with heavy criminal ties. To make matters worse, their neighbour Troy (Bill Engvall) is exceptionally creepy. Desperate to break out of their rut, the pair decide to leave town after one last job. However, after John returns home and Rosie is »

Director Darren Lynn Bousman's latest horror film is titled Abattoir. This title recently had a screening at the La Film Festival, with a showing at the Arclight Culver City coming up. This haunted house thriller involves a home, which has been constructed from crime scenes. Each room in this house has had one murder take place inside. The film stars Jessica Lowndes (Altitude) as Julia, a real estate investigator. And, the film's second movie clip is hosted here. The clip shows Julia talking with several other characters. Each character reveals something more about this murder house. Several tragedies have taken place in this residence and each sounds worse than the last.

This third week of April has some exciting home entertainment offerings for us genre fans, including the special edition releases of two cult classics I adore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff. An indie film I’ve been hearing about for a while now, Grimewave, also makes its way to DVD this Tuesday and while it may not be traditional horror, Oscar-winner The Revenant certainly has enough badassery contained within its cinematic frames to be worthy of mentioning this week, and it arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.
Other notable releases this week include Smothered (which features a ton of horror icons and was directed by John Schneider of Smallville and Dukes of Hazzard fame), 15 Till Midnight, Classroom 6, Ip Man 3, German Angst and She Wolf Rising.

Jigsaw is coming back to life once again, with Lionsgate moving forward on the eighth installment of their blockbuster Saw franchise. The Tracking Board reports that the studio has hired Piranha 3D writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to come aboard and write the script for this new movie, entitled Saw Legacy. No story details were given at this time, and it isn't known if Tobin Bell will be back to play the notorious killer Jigsaw.
James Wan and Leigh Whannell, who came up with the original Saw story, are set to executive produce this sequel. We reported back in 2013 that Lionsgate was developing this Saw sequel, but that report claimed the studio wanted to take its time and develop the perfect story. Lionsgate reportedly considered rebooting the franchise altogether, but it is not known if this new project will be a continuation of Jigsaw's story or not.

It doesn't leave stains, it tastes great... and it slithers behind the refrigerator door.

Enough Is Never Enough!
North American pre-orders links should be live soon!
Release Date: 19th April
Are you eating it ...or is it eating you?
The Stuff is the new dessert taking supermarket shelves by storm. It’s delicious, low in calories and – better still – doesn’t stain the family carpet… What’s not to like?! Well, for a start it has a life of its own, and we’re not talking friendly live bacteria…
