The films were picked up for German speaking territories by Illusions Unlimited, an Austrian Uncut Distribution Company. CEO Emsch Schneider said, "These movies are very cool and gory. Cross Bearer is a back-to-the-roots slasher, and The Cemetery is a gory and violent flick with amazing practical effects. We're honored to release these brutal movies Uncut in German speaking territories." We should hear more about a North American release and other territories shortly.
In The Cemetery (official site here) a team of paranormal investigators must fight for their lives after accidentally releasing a demon from a forgotten cemetery. Alternately gut-punching hilarious and brutally violent, The Cemetery takes the best elements of the old-school slasher film and pushes them to the edge. »

I just spent 108 minutes catching up with Jesse and Celine. We've met them twice Before... and I spent the first 2/3rds of the movie grinning like a damn fool I was so happy to be marinating in their always passionate detour-filled conversations. It's too early to say how much I loved the movie (though I did) but it got me to thinking what an achievement this series is and got me to thinking of true movie magic and how much of it we've had lately. So while so many of my fellow critics enjoy their mad rush through Auteursville at Cannes tonight I'm remembering the time I fell in love with this movie...
...and that one

"I was gonna sit this season out," Hough said in a recent interview. "My mom hurt herself and she was in the hospital (but) I had this overwhelming feeling, `You know what? I feel like this isn't the season I should be taking off. This isn't the one.' Now looking back, I'm really glad I made that decision because it's been one of my favorite seasons as far as creating and working with people."
Besides teaching his celeb partner, country singer Kellie Pickler, how to ballroom dance, he's also performed with a blind dancer and danced in a rotating room.
Hough, 28, pushed for these opportunities to keep challenging himself.
"For me, I like to push »

Jennifer Lopez has released a new music video for her latest single "Live It Up."
The collaboration with Pitbull has the 43-year-old singer donning a "Black Swan"-esque get-up as she gets pampered and prepped for a big performance. Lopez breaks it down onstage with a series of rings -- an image that she teased earlier this week on "American Idol." The singer performed the track on the season finale of the talent competition on Thursday.
The music video for "Live It Up" (shown above) later transitions to beach scenes. The scenes were shot in Florida earlier this month. A day of filming the music video and accompanying interviews was disrupted when gunshots were fired near the beach in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Lopez was rushed off the scene in the midst of an interview with "Entertainment Tonight."
"Live It Up" is expected to be featured on Lopez's upcoming studio album, »

Many have spoken out in support of Angelina Jolie after the actress bravely revealed she underwent a preventive double mastectomy. And Natalie Portman's dad is no exception. Dr. Avner Hershlag, chief of the Center for Human Reproduction at North Shore Lij and father to the Black Swan actress, tells E! News he has the utmost respect for Brad Pitt's other half and also shares his own medical insight as Jolie continues the preemptive cancer treatment. "I feel a lot of adulation towards her announcement," Hershlag tells E! News. "She is doing so much service for so many women. Imagine a woman who did not know she should be tested. She sees Angelina's announcement, gets tested today »
Speaking with Empire Online, Breaking Bad actor Mark Margolis talks about reuniting with Darren Aronofsky on his anticipated Biblical epic Noah that's also based on the Black Swan director's graphic novel. "I play a 12-foot god," Margolis told the site, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI." The actor plays a fallen angel called 'Samyaza', who Empire describes as "leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. They're a giant breed of angels who have been at odds with God since the Fall - 'Samyaza' is another name for Satan - and likely to be a source of trouble for the Almighty, and Russell Crowe's Noah too." Margolis then discusses filming all of his scenes with Crowe and playing a 12-foot CGI character. "All of my scenes are with Russell [Crowe], who I found to be a very funny guy. They used me and my »
Proof that anything a mutated neutrino and Roland Emmerich can do, God can do better (and first), Darren Aronofsky's Noah is currently at the pointy end of production. The whole shebang is coalescing into something seriously intriguing - after all, we're talking about the director of Pi, Requiem For A Dream and Black Swan tackling the first ever apocalypse - and our spies tell us that even the big guy upstairs is excited to be involved. Someone else with a tingle of anticipation is Breaking Bad stalwart and old Aronofsky hand Mark Margolis, who plays a fallen angel known as Samyaza in the film. As he explained to Empire, he won't look anything like Breaking Bad's wheelchair-bound enforcer. "I play a 12-foot god," he said, "[and] most of my character will be created through CGI."Shooting in Iceland, Margolis took the mantle of leader of a posse of six-armed angels known as the 'Watchers'. »
Anthony Stokes thinks that Hollywood's current business model could be unsustainable...
Hollywood seems to be getting greedier and greedier with each year. There appears to be an endless amount of 3D animated movies, 3D re-releases, unnecessary remakes, and feature length commercials (feature length commercials are movies that are lacking in story or character development, but make up for it in product placement, like Transformers, G.I. Joe, Battleship, or any Adam Sandler movie).
What movie buffs realize that Hollywood doesn't - or maybe does, hence all the remakes - is that the way Hollywood is running is unsustainable. In the year 2012 there were eight movies that had a reported budget of over $170m. That's four times as many as the year 2010. Granted 2012 had many more event films than 2010, which was a relatively quiet year. The Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises both came out to name a few, but there were also many others. »

Now in pre-production, the 1884-set animated fare, helmed by Canadian duo Eric Warin and Eric Summer, tells the tale of Felice, an 11-year-old orphan girl from Brittany who dreams of becoming a ballerina at the Paris Opera.

Gaumont is in talks to close the U.K., all of Eastern Europe, »

Much has been made of Jay-z’s involvement with Baz Lurhmann’s epic adaptation of The Great Gatsby. The music mogul has never before lent his name or his talents to a project in this way before (we’re not counting his “inspired by” American Gangster album). Despite the hype, this soundtrack collaboration is fundamentally safe (if seemingly off to a fast start on the charts.). Not only is The Great Gatsby a tent-pole blockbuster with an above-the-title director and major A-list talent, it’s a grandiose celebration of New York jazz age glamour and excess — which in some ways, »

It's that time of year again when we take a moment to honor our moms. And how great they are, right? Well, here at Dread Central we can turn even the most loving moms into something horrific, and in celebration of Mother's Day, we bring you Horror's 11 Most Memorable Moms!
Read on… and eat your vegetables for chrissake!
Okay, so not all the moms on this list are psychotic killers; some are heroes, and some fall somewhere in between. But they're all great for their own reasons. As usual, we'll start out with some honorable mentions, and we certainly have some remarkable moms to speak about. We'll start with Estelle Collingwood (played by Cynthia Carr) in the original Last House on the Left. Only a mother's love could drive a person to bite a guy's Johnson off as an act of revenge! Another great justice-seeking mother was Kate (played by Vera Farmiga) in Orphan. »
