Coming Distractions: It’s the eerie Abbatoir trailer, from the director of Saw II and The Devil’s Carnival

17 November 2016 9:52 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

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.

The film stars Jessica Lowndes as a plucky reporter straight out of His Girl Friday »

Saw 8 Spoilers Tease the Return of a Surprise Character

1 November 2016 11:53 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 talks stunts, ‘Saw’ and his new film ‘The Neighbour’

27 October 2016 10:57 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Marcus Dunstan interview for The Neighbour.

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 »

Paramount Lands Pitch From Platinum Dunes and ‘Saw IV’ Scribes (Exclusive)

25 October 2016 4:39 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paramount Pictures is in negotiations to acquire an untitled pitch with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes banner producing and “Saw IV” scribes Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan writing.

Michael Chaves, who wrote and directed the short “The Maiden,” is attached to direct.

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, »

‘Saw’ writer Marcus Dunstan reveals identity of Doctor Gordon’s ‘Saw VII’ accomplices

11 October 2016 1:48 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

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.

When the opportunity to interview one of the writers of Saw IV – VII, Marcus Dunstan, presented itself, we saw it as the perfect time to get to the bottom of the mystery. Here’s what he »

Saw 8 Gets Daybreakers Directors the Spierig Brothers?

13 July 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While a new Saw movie had been rumored for years, it finally seems to be getting off the ground. Earlier this year, Lionsgate brought on Piranha 3D writers Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger to write the script for Saw Legacy, with a report from earlier this month teasing that filming would begin sometime this fall, even though the project didn't have a director attached. It seems that has changed, with a new production listing claiming that this horror sequel has landed a pair of sibling directors, Peter Spierig and Michael Spierig (Daybreakers).

A Reddit user discovered an updated listing from the Ontario Media Development Corporation, which lists what film and TV productions will be shot in the area. This listing confirms the report from earlier this month, which revealed that filming will take place in Toronto, Ontario between September 12 and October 21, but it also reveals that the Spierig brothers have come aboard to direct. »

Saw 8 Begins Shooting This Fall

6 July 2016 9:43 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After seven straight years of terrorizing moviegoers, it seems that the new horror icon Jigsaw is getting ready to strike again. We reported in 2013 that an eighth installment of the Saw franchise, entitled Saw Legacy was moving forward, and earlier this year, writers Josh Stolberg and Peter Goldfinger came aboard to write the script. Today we have word that production may actually start this year in Toronto.

iatse873, which highlights a union of stage, theater and movie employees/operators, reveals shooting is set to take place between September 21 and October 21, with Dan Heffner and Oren Kroules, who have produced every Saw movie to date, listed as producers. It doesn't seem that a director is attached quite yet, but if production truly is starting in just over two months, we may be hearing much more about this mysterious project. No cast members are currently attached, and Lionsgate hasn't handed out a release date at this time. »

Laff 2016 Interview: Darren Lynn Bousman on Making Impossible Movies and the Long Journey of Abattoir

7 June 2016 4:12 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Premiering tonight at the 2016 Los Angeles Film Festival is Darren Lynn Bousman’s Abattoir, a neo-noir-infused horror film that follows a reporter (Jessica Lowndes) investigating a mysterious man by the name of Jebediah Crone (Dayton Callie), who collects the rooms of violent crime scenes as part of his plan to build a home based entirely upon murder. Abattoir also co-stars Lin Shaye, Joe Anderson, J. Larose, and Michael Paré.

Daily Dead recently had the chance to speak with Bousman about his return to horror for his latest film, why he thrives on making “un-makeable” films, and the long journey of Abattoir from page to screen.

[Writer’s Note: Full disclosure, my significant other (and sometimes contributor to Daily Dead) edited Abattoir, so while we will not be reviewing it, we thought an interview with Bousman would be an appropriate way to give Daily Dead readers insights into the film.]

Let’s start at the beginning and talk about the evolution of Abattoir from the graphic novel to the feature film version. This has been a long time coming.

Darren Lynn Bousman: Yeah, this is the longest I’ve ever been involved with a »
