Watch a tense exclusive clip from Marcus Dunstan's new thriller 'The Neighbor'

9 September 2016 12:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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. »

Interview: Co-Writer/Director Marcus Dunstan Discusses the Evil Next Door in The Neighbor

5 September 2016 1:14 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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 »

Frightfest 2016: ‘The Neighbour’ Review

28 August 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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 »

Interview: Bill Engvall on Playing the Nightmare Next Door in The Neighbor

10 August 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

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, »

Crew Behind Bigfoot Horror Film The Fiancé Team Up Again for Zombie Flick, Valentine Day(Z)

8 August 2016 4:52 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

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.

The cast of Valentine Day(Z) includes Dallas Valdez (“The Fiancé »

Tagline: "Fear thy Neighbor." Director Marcus Dunstan (The Collector) and actor Josh Stewart re-team for The Neighbor. This mysterious thriller focuses on three characters: John (Stewart), Rosie (Alex Essoe) and Troy (Bill Engvall). When Rosie goes missing, John suspects his neighbor, Troy. The film is slated for a September release, via Anchor Bay Entertainment. In September, the film will be available on DVD and Video-on-demand. A trailer for The Neighbor is hosted here.

Last year we heard that Halloween Returns, planned as the next installment in the Halloween horror movie franchise, might employ retrospective revisions (known as retconning) in order to ignore the events depicted in most of the previous installments.
