From Hammer Films, legendary producers of movies macabre and who made an impressive and profitable comeback with hits The Woman in Black, comes their next big horror outing called The Quiet Ones. And it looks pretty great.

Inspired by true events, The Quiet Ones tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist.

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, »

Magic Magic has been seeing a lot of buzz in the blogosphere in the last couple of months and after viewing the trailer not too long back, I was happy to jump on the chance to give it a view. After all, it’s not likely that Michael Cera is going to become a regular in psychological horror thrillers so, if anything, it was worth the view for that alone.
The story follows Alicia (Juno Temple, Killer Joe) who goes to visit her cousin Sarah (Emily Browning, The Uninvited) in Chile. A small group including Sarah, her friend Barbara and boyfriend Agustin, and Agustin’s friend Brink (Michael Cera) vacation to Pagoda when suddenly Sarah is forced back to school to retake an exam (or so we’re lead to believe) and Alicia must make the trip with the remaining group on her own. As the group becomes more and more hostile, »
Bloodsport may be one of the most overrated movies there is. It wasn’t particularly good, but it’s remembered and held on a pedestal because it made Jean-Claude Van Damme a star. A couple of years ago, it was announced that Bloodsport would be getting remade by director Phillip Noyce, but that has since changed. Relativity is now producing the reboot with director James McTeigue (V For Vendetta), and is also bringing in someone new to rewrite the script.
In the original Bloodsport, Van Damme played Frank Dux, a young trainee of master of the art Tanaka who participates in the Kumite, the ultimate martial arts tournament where participants are heavy injured and killed. Back when Noyce was director, the story was said to follow an American who goes to Brazil to recover from the violence he experience in Afghanistan but ends up involved in a martial arts contest. »

Over two years ago, news came from Cannes that Salt director Phillip Noyce was going to direct a remake of Jean-Claude Van Damme's 1988 underground martial arts drama Bloodsport. However, no details have emerged since then. Now Variety reports V for Vendetta and Ninja Assassin director James McTeigue has boarded the project with Relativity Media behind the reboot. The script still comes from Robert Mark Kamen, the writer of The Fifth Element, Taken and The Transporter franchise, who developed the story with Noyce, with a rewrite coming from Craig Rosenberg (The Uninvited), supervised by McTeigue himself. Though a cast still needs to be rounded up, the story is said to follow mercenaries in present day as they get involved with the underground world of Brazilian Vale Tudo (which means "anything goes") fighting. Originally, we heard the story followed a single American who goes to Brazil to recover from the violence »
