How Much Shock Can You Stand?

Ghosts are famous for their flexibility, spiraling through keyholes and up from the floorboards in search of their next mark. But movies about ghosts can be flexible too. Three classics of the genre, The Uninvited, House on Haunted Hill and The Innocents, demonstrate that there’s more than one way haunt a house.

These films never appeared on any triple bill that I know of, but I’d like to think they did, somewhere in some small town with a theater manager that knew a good scare when he saw it. How could the programmer resist it? Each film is united by a beautiful black and white sheen, eerie locales and their ability to scare the bejeezus out of you. But they’re also alike in their differences, coming at their specters from distinctly different vantage points.

1944’s The Uninvited, a three-hankie haunted house tale with a dysfunctional family subplot,

The 20 Best Foreign-Language Horror Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Trouble Every Day’ to ‘Let the Right One In’

The 20 Best Foreign-Language Horror Films of the 21st Century, From ‘Trouble Every Day’ to ‘Let the Right One In’
Fear doesn’t need subtitles, but some of the best horror films do. J-horror, the New French Extremity, and other foreign-language scary-movie movements have provided much in the way of terrified shrieks and heightened pulses. Although dialogue may get lost in translation, blood-curdling screams never do. Horror is an especially visual genre, and one of the most universal.

The world is dark and full of terrors, especially where the movies on this list are concerned. Here are our favorite foreign language horror flicks made since the year 2000.

20. “We Are What We Are” (2010)

Horror filmmakers ruthlessly mine for metaphor, often at the expense of credibility. The tricky balance in the Mexican cannibal drama “We Are What We Are” (“Somos lo que hay”) pairs a conventional family unit with the ludicrously grotesque to chilling and absurd effect. Writer-director Jorge Michel Grau’s feature debut has the goriest signifier for underclass strife this

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?

Janelle Monae to Lead Charlie's Angels Reboot in 2019?
Nearly two years after Elizabeth Banks was first sought to direct Sony's Charlie's Angels remake, the project is finally moving forward with new writers. The studio has brought on Narcos creators Carlo Bernard and Doug Miro to rewrite the script, which was first worked on by Evan Spiliotopoulos (Beauty and the Beast). While no cast members are in place yet, this report claims that Janelle Monae (Hidden Figures, Moonlight) is at the top of the studio's "wish list" for one of the Angels.

The Tracking Board reports that Sony wants at least one of the Angels to be black, and while Janelle Monae is at the top of the studio's list, casting hasn't even started yet since the script isn't finished. This report also claims that Sony will hand out a "prime 2019 release date" very soon for Charlie's Angels, although there is no indication as to what this date may be.

Sam Raimi to Helm Bermuda Triangle Film?

  • DailyDead
It's been several years since the release of Sam Raimi's last feature film, Oz the Great and Powerful, but the Evil Dead filmmaker could potentially be coming back to the big screen soon.

According to THR, Raimi is in discussions to direct a "mystery thriller" about the Bermuda Triangle for Skydance Productions. Covering a vast area of the Atlantic Ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico, the Bermuda Triangle has long been a real life setting for bizarre disappearances of planes and ships. The mysteries of that stretch of sea are not only of interest to Skydance—Universal and Warner Bros. are also putting together projects based on the Bermuda Triangle.

Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (Narcos, The Great Wall, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Uninvited) penned the script for Skydance's Bermuda Triangle movie, with an earlier draft written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (2009's Friday the 13th, new

Following the spectacular original horror flick Oculus last weekend, there's another promising supernatural thriller on the horizon later this month.

Watch: Another Spooky Trailer for Hammer's 'The Quiet Ones' Horror

"There's something there with you, isn't there?" The second trailer for Hammer's newest horror film The Quiet Ones showed a mix of found footage and traditional narrative filmmaking, and now a new shorter trailer does the same, but this one is pretty intense, showing a lot of the craziness that happens in this supernatural college experiment gone wrong. Fans of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire should be happy to see Sam Claflin in this film, but it's Jared Harris and his ominous British voice that really adds some ambiance. This looks better than Hammer's The Woman in Black, so we're definitely interested. Watch it! Here's the latest trailer for John Pogue's The Quiet Ones, originally from Apple: The Quiet Ones is directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2: Terminal) from a script he wrote with Craig Rosenberg (The Uninvited) and Oren Moverman (Rampart, The Messenger).

Hammer Horror’s Haunted House Chiller The Quiet Ones Gets Full Trailer

Hammer Films is still alive and kicking after more than thirty years of hibernation, thanks to the considerable success of its Chloe Moretz-starring vampire remake Let Me In and, more recently, the early 1900s ghost story The Woman in Black, which starred Daniel Radcliffe and surprised at the box office with a massive $127 million haul (Hammer’s largest ever). Now, the studio is gearing up for its next act with another period frightfest, titled The Quiet Ones.

Starring Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Erin Richards, Rory Fleck-Byrne and Olivia Cooke, The Quiet Ones revolves a group of university students who follow their charismatic professor (Harris) off the map to perform a series of psychological experiments in hopes of creating a poltergeist.

Korean Thriller ‘I Saw the Devil’ Optioned for Hollywood Dilution

Hollywood remaking foreign-language films isn’t anything new, and countries as diverse as France, Japan, and Iceland have all seen their movies adapted, for better or worse, through an American lens. South Korea is a relatively new inductee into the bunch with only a handful of their films getting the Hollywood treatment leading up to this year’s much maligned Spike Lee redo of Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy. 2006′s The Lake House was the first U.S. remake of a Korean film (based on Il Mare), and it was followed by a forgettable romantic comedy (My Sassy Girl) and a trio of horror films including Mirrors (Into the Mirror), The Uninvited (A Tale of Two Sisters), and Possession (Addicted). And that’s it… for now. Per The Wrap, the latest Korean film to be slated for Hollywood reincarnation is Kim Jee-woon‘s brutally uncompromising and wickedly good I Saw the Devil (my review).

Tarsem Singh To Direct Race Against Time Thriller ‘The Panopticon’

Tarsem Singh tends to be loved or hated. There’s no doubt he prefers to concentrate on visuals rather than character interactions and plot development, but his films look like no other and are usually breathtaking. He left 6 years between his oddball serial killer thriller The Cell and his undisputed classic The Fall, and then there was another 5 years hiatus between that and Immortals, but it seems as though Singh (who has been credited over his productions as simply Tarsem, and then Tarsem SIngh, and sometimes Tarsem Singh Dhandwar), is looking to be more prolific and diverse. He followed up his sword and sandels epic Immortals with a family friendly adaptation of the Snow White tale in Mirror, Mirror.

Latest rumblings tell of a new project Singh is interested in, that being science-fiction thriller The Panopticon. Craig Rosenberg, writer of A Tale Of Two Sisters remake The Uninvited and After The Sunset,
