Composer Christopher Young Delivers Us Some Evil

7 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Christopher Young knows horror. After 32 years in the business and countless horror movies under his belt from Hellraiser to The Grudge to Drag Me To Hell to his latest, Deliver Us From Evil, Young is a wealth of information when it comes to talking all things fear. A composer, but also a big fan, Young’s appreciation for the genre has in turn helped him give it some of its most terrifying scores. Young didn’t seek out the horror genre, it just happened that he was coming up in the business when films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and Freddy the 13th reigned supreme. Deliver Us From Evil marks the third time Young has worked with director Scott Derrickson, and Young is clearly a fan of the rising filmmaker, noting that he is one of only a handful of directors whose specialty is horror.  “He’s one of two or three horror directors that I »

Sam Raimi May Direct Afghanistan War Film The Outpost

26 June 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Sam Raimi hasn’t been quick to choose his next project after last year’s VFX-filled Oz the Great and Powerful for Disney, but we now have something on the horizon for the veteran director.  Raimi will produce and supervise development of an adaptation of Jake Tapper’s book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor with an eye towards possibly directing.  The nonfiction book chronicles the 2009 battle in Afghanistan, 14 miles from the Pakistani border, where 53 Americans were overrun by 400 Taliban fighters.  The conflict resulted in two Medal of Honor recipients, marking the first time the award has been given to two living soldiers for the same battle since 1968.  Hit the jump for more. Per Deadline, The Fighter screenwriters Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson are penning the script for The Outpost under the supervision of Raimi.  The film would certainly mark a change of pace for the director, »

Crowd Funding Spotlight: ‘The Mortuary Collection’

18 June 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

(Author’s Note: Bj Colangelo is a professional bleeding heart for the independent film genre and would like to spend one day a week focusing on a crowd funding project that she feels deserves to meet it’s goal. If you have a project you believe deserves spotlight, e-mail her at Brittnahjade@gmail.com)

Many of you may have seen this awesome (and free) short documentary on anthology horror films floating around your social media sites called We Come In Pieces: The Rebirth Of The Horror Anthology Film.  Icons’ own Rob G is even featured as a talking head alongside Rebekah McKendry, Brian Collins, Elric Kane, Joe Dante, Larry Fessenden, Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, Darin Scott, Drew Daywalt, Michael Dougherty, and Jerome Sable.  This documentary was interesting, extremely well put together, and gave a friendly insight into why anthology horror films work so well.

Justin Long ('Drag Me to Hell') has been snapped by director Kevin Smith in what might be the actors most uncomfortable scenario to date. Laying with his arms stitched to his sides with a mouth full of what either appears to be a mouth full of blood or at least missing teeth. Long's character is the unsuspecting victim of an absolute nutter played by 'Red State' star Michael Parks who decides his new roommate should be converted into a human/walrus hybrid. Long stars alongside Haley Joel Osment ('The Sixth Sense') and Genesis Rodriguez ('Man on a Ledge') also star as Long's best friend and girlfriend, of course respectively. Head below the image. »

Kevin Smith Tackles Christmas Horror with Anti-Claus

29 April 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'Tis the season for 'Clerks' director and SModcaster extraordinaire Kevin Smith. The announcement of his newest project has been made and the writer/director is once more turning his attentions to the realm of horror. As we eagerly await the arrival of his newest genre effort 'Tusk' the filmmaker is turning his attentions to 'Anti-Claus'. 'When I was a kid, if they wanted to make a Christmas horror movie, they'd stick an axe in Santa's hands...' says Smith 'In Anti-Claus, we leave Santa alone and creep with the Krampus through twisted tales of holly-jolly murder, desire, desperation and despair. Just in time for the holiday season.' And what's more is that the main cast has already been conveniently set up and filled by Justin Long ('Drag Me to Hell'), Michael Parks ('Red State'), Haley Joel Osment ('The Sixth Sense') and Genesis Rodriguez. »

The 20 Most Awesome Fight Scenes in Genre Movies

14 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Everyone has that one cinematic brawl that sticks with him or her. They buy special edition Blu-rays to watch the glorious scenes in high definition, wear shirts sporting their favorite competitor, and even engage in debates with other fans about which character they think would win if the duel occurred in real life. With The Raid 2 coming out soon, what better time to look back on best fight scenes that genre films have to offer? Read on to see which conflicts make the list, and keep an eye out for The Raid 2, which is set to release on March 28th, 2014.     20.

10 Most Overlooked Horror Heroines

3 March 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

As February draws to a close, so does the official Women in Horror Month. Started a few years back, the month of February has been dubbed a special time of year, where horror fans are encouraged reflect on final girls, vixens and villains, and appreciate the evolution of females in the genre. Knowing that, what better time to pay tribute to the unsung heroes of the horror world? Unfortunately, some girls are overlooked either because they aren't the main character, or they just aren't in a movie that became as popular as its predecessors. In my opinion, everyone who helps save lives is warranted some reward. Therefore, I've decided to provide a list of some of my favorite females to spread the word about some contenders that deserve a little more recognition. Without further ado, here are the ten most overlooked horror heroines!

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #58. Joe Dante’s Casting the Runes

26 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Casting the Runes

Director: Joe Dante

Writer: David Tully

Producers: Daniel Tully, Rob Heydon

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Simon Pegg

So Joe Dante’s last film was the underrated 2009 3D film, The Hole, which sadly went direct to DVD even after being well received in Venice and Toronto that year. Now, he’s got a few projects brewing and 2014 will see the release of his film, Burying the Ex starring Anton Yelchin. But the project we are really interested in this project, which looks to be based on the same short story that inspired Jacques Tourneur’s classic 1957 film Night of the Demon, which starred Dana Andrews. While Sam Raimi did a sort of homage to the material already with his 2009 film Drag Me To Hell, Dante’s film seems more of a direct connection. And set to star Simon Pegg!

The Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise

18 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

From his modest start in that ramshackle cabin in the woods what must seem like a lifetime ago, Sam Raimi has become one of the more versatile and beloved directors in Hollywood. With Scream Factory's Blu-ray release of Darkman today, we bring you our Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise.

We're going to keep this list to films directed by Raimi. If we were to include the movies he's acted in, or god forbid produced, we'd be here all night. But a few of his production credits like 30 Days of Night, both of The Grudge films, Boogeyman, The Possession, Timecop and of course the Evil Dead remake are noteworthy.

Some honorable directorial mentions include his most recent, Oz the Great and Powerful. It might not have been the epic it was billed to be, but it looked fantastic; and when you manage to haul in half a billion »

Jay Baruchel, Not Justin Long, Set to Lead King's 'Ten O'Clock People'

7 February 2014 10:26 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

In the summer of 2012, we learned that Justin Long was being lined up to star in The Ten O'Clock People, an adaptation of Stephen King's short story of the same name. However, it appears the Drag Me to Hell star has fallen away from the project, and now THR reports Jay Baruchel (This is The End, RoboCop) who has signed on to star in the film written and directed by Tom Holland, the original Fright Night and Child's Play helmer. King and Holland collaborated back in the 90s, most notably on the TV series "The Langoliers" and the film Thinner (Holland's last big screen work), so this is quite a reunion 16 years later. The story comes from King's 1993 horror collection Nightmares and Dreamscapes, and it sounds more like an episode of "The Twilight Zone." Baruchel will star in the film as Brandon Pearson, a former smoker who returns to »

The movie will be represented at this weeks European Film Market over in Berlin. The short story of the same name is part of King's original 'Nightmares and Dreamscapes' collection published back in 1993. »

This Week in The Vault: Rebekah McKendry and Dave Parker Chat About 'Dead & Buried'

6 February 2014 10:30 AM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

In The Vault this week, we welcome director Dave Parker (The Hills Run Red, ColdWater) and journalist Rebekah McKendry from Fangoria. These are two of the biggest horror nerds I know (and I know a lot of horror nerds) so they give some great insight on this week's film, Dead & Buried.

Dead & Buried is a kind of low-key zombie flick. I had never even heard of it until we started working on The Vault. The small New England coastal town of Potter's Bluff is a popular vacation spot, but visitors frequently end up, well, murdered. But thanks to some voodoo witchcraft, the dead rise again, as residents who don't eat brains and, frankly, act as if nothing happened - except, of course, when it is time to kill the newbies.

Directed by Gary Sherman (Poltergeist III, Raw Meat), the screenplay comes from Dan O'Bannon, best known for writing the original Alien. »
