Stars: Josh Stewart, Alex Essoe, Bill Engvall, Melissa Bolona, Luke Edwards, Jaqueline Fleming, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Skipp Sudduth, David Kallaway | Written by Marcus Dunstan, Patrick Melton | Directed by Marcus Dunstan
It’s safe to say I’m a fan of the films of Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Between them, the duo have written and/or directed some fun fear flicks: Feast and it’s sequels (which I truly adore), Saw 4 – 7 and the fantastic pairing of The Collector and The Collection. It’s been four years since the latter film, their last feature, and now they’re back with The Neighbour – which also marks the Third time the filmmakers have worked with actor Josh Stewart.
Set in Cutter, Mississippi, The Neighbour follows two small-time drug-traffickers, John (Stewart) and Rosie (Essoe), who operate a weigh station next door to their creepy, hunting-obsessed neighbour, Troy. Planning to leave their drug-dealing life behind, »

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 »

Alex Essoe is one of our favourite acting folks around at the moment. Her turn in Starry Eyes as an actress desperate to succeed is hypnotic and haunting. Since then she’s carved up a strong career on the independent film circuit, and it surely won’t be long until she breaks into the big leagues. Her latest venture, The Neighbour, sees her character Rosie kidnapped by her neighbour.
Rosie and her boyfriend John (Josh Stewart) are down on their luck and are making ends meet by working with John’s criminal uncle. Whilst John is out on what will hopefully be their last job, Rosie witnesses their creepy neighbour Troy (Bill Engvall) do something terrible, and finds herself as the next target. When John returns home he suspects Troy might be to blame for her disappearance and sets out on a rescue mission. »

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but sources describe it as a supernatural horror-thriller that takes place on a global scale.
Already in 2016, Platinum Dunes has bowed “The Purge: Election Year,” which became the highest-grossing pic in the series, and “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” which bowed this weekend to $13 million on a $9 million budget. It also has a new “Jack Ryan” series at Amazon going into production next year.
The banner has also been busy on the pitch market, setting up the spec “Northeast Kingdom” with Alex R. Johnson to direct.
The film marks the biggest production yet for Chaves, whose profile rose significantly following the release of “The Maiden, »

Bill Engvall is best known to audiences for his work within the comedy world. Starting his career as a stand-up comedian, Engvall worked his way to television, and had his own sitcom which ran for three years (and starred Jennifer Lawrence). Now though, he’s venturing into new, darker territory as he stars in new action/thriller/horror, The Neighbour.
Directed by Marcus Dunstan of The Collector fame, Bill stars as Troy, the titular neighbour. Troy takes a shine to his next-door neighbour John’s (Josh Stewart) girlfriend Rosie (Alex Essoe). When she catches him out doing something illegal she finds herself in danger of becoming his next victim. Can John find her in time?
The film is a great cat and mouse thriller in the vein of Dunstan’s previous work. It screened at Frightfest earlier this year and we found the whole thing terrifyingly tense. »

Marcus Dunstan reveals the identity of Doctor Gordon’s accomplices in ‘Saw VII’. Be warned – this post contains spoilers for the ‘Saw’ franchise.
It’s October, the month of the horror film, meaning it won’t be long until a re-watch of the Saw movies is underway. It’s a solid franchise, though we couldn’t help but feel a little cheated by that ending in Saw VII. Hoffman is hunted down by unknown assailants, one of whom is identified as Doctor Gordon, the others are never unmasked. It’s a mystery that has bugged this writer for several years and we finally now have confirmation on just who was helping Gordon punish Hoffman.

Creative partners Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton -- who co-wrote a total of four Saw sequels -- are back once again with The Neighbor, a new thriller that marks Dunstan's third directorial effort after 2009's The Collector and its 2012 sequel The Collection. Set in Mississippi, the film stars Josh Stewart (Criminal Minds) and Alex Essoe (so memorable as the fame-hungry actress in Starry Eyes) as a couple who uncover the horrifying truth about their next door neighbor (stand-up comedian-turned-actor Bill Engvall of Blue Collar Comedy fame). You can watch an ultra-tense scene from the film in the HitFix-exclusive clip above. The Neighbor is out this week on DVD, Digital HD and VOD. »

For over a decade now, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have collaborated on bringing crimson-stained nightmares to the big screen, and while horror fans may associate the creative duo with gore galore due to their inventive Saw sequels (parts IV–VI) and creepy Collector films, their latest project, The Neighbor, opts for atmospheric tension over buckets of blood.
With The Neighbor coming out on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD, and VOD from Anchor Bay Entertainment on September 6th, I had the opportunity to talk with Dunstan about directing his third film, casting Bill Engvall as a charming villain, re-teaming with actor Josh Stewart, and the possibility of a third Collector movie.
Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today and congratulations on The Neighbor. I'm a big fan of what you and Patrick have done in the horror genre, and this film, being more of a southern thriller, is »

The Neighbour review: A terrifyingly tense tale that grabs the attention from the start.
The Neighbour review by Kat Hughes, Frightfest 2016.
The Neighbour Review
In 2009 Marcus Dunstan wowed audiences with The Collector. Starring Josh Stewart as Arkin an ex-con whose planned heist of his new employer’s country house goes awry. The house has already been taken over by ‘the collector’, a devious serial killer who likes to collect his victims. The pairing of Stewart and Dunstan re-teamed for a follow-up The Collection, a film that failed to reach the same excitement level as the first. Seeking to reignite the spark, the duo have joined forces for a third, but completely different film, The Neighbour.
This time Stewart plays John, a down-trodden young man who makes his living helping his uncle run his local crime ring. Whilst John is helping his uncle, his wife Rosie (Alex Essoe) is left at »

Bill Engvall has made folks laugh for decades, so it may come as a surprise that he induces scares instead of smiles in his role as the unsettling antagonist next door in Marcus Dunstan’s The Neighbor. With the film coming out on DVD September 6th from Anchor Bay Entertainment, Fortress Features, and Salt Company International Production, as well as VOD from Starz Digital, I recently had the opportunity to speak with Engvall, who discussed growing up with a fondness for the horror genre and Vincent Price, playing a charming character with a dark side, working with Dunstan and Josh Stewart, and much more.
Congratulations on the film, Bill. It was great to see you play a darker role in a film like The Neighbor, so kudos to you and the whole team for putting this together.
Bill Engvall: Well, thank you, man. I’ve got to tell you something, »

The team behind “The Fiancé” (a bigfoot thriller written and directed by Mark Allen Michaels and produced by Screenwriter/Director/long-time Journalist Staci Layne Wilson) has returned with the vampire apocalypse with a noir twist film, “Valentine DayZ”.
The film, which is described as “a heart-stopping horror story written and directed by Michaels, and produced by Staci Layne Wilson (“Fetish Factory”) and Kate Rees Davies (“Altered Perception”)” is currently in production and looks to inject some new blood and angles into the zombie craze, something I’m pretty excited to see for myself..
Revisiting his unique blend of hardboiled crime thriller and brutal, bloody horror, Michaels’ “Valentine DayZ” takes his characters on a journey from the champagne and yacht lifestyles of the rich and corrupt, to doom and despair in Death Valley as the zombie-apocalypse threatens everything they hold dear.
