Here's What We Know About Final Destination 6 (Not Much)

21 August 2014 3:43 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Saw V, Paranormal Activity 4, the last three Halloweens...every franchise has a moment where the driving forces throw their hands up and say "fuck it." The Final Destination did more than kill its entire cast, it prevented U.S. audiences from flocking to the surprisingly great Final Destination 5.

It also made the studio gun-shy with respect to making another.

Has that changed?

No. Not yet.

Last year we brought news of an interesting pitch for a Medieval Final Destination movie. That doesn't appear to be in the cards, but neither is today's story about a Russia-set sequel.

Our friends at Bloody Disgusting reached out to a source close to the franchise for comment on the rumors, which were squashed instantly. Bloody went on to report that Warner Brothers and New Line are talking about making another film, but they have no story as of yet.

Fear not, kids. »

The Fear Monger: Uncovered Shaun Of The Dead Developments And The Babadook Trailer Terrifies

17 August 2014 5:24 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Good day, extinguishers of all things solar. This past week gave us two equally grating slices of horror: Leatherface as a teenager and Let.s Be Cops getting released the same week as everything going on in Ferguson, Missouri. To take your mind off all that, check out the limited release of Jeff Baena.s zombie comedy Life After Beth, which uses winning performances to bring life to a tonally fluctuating plotline. How is Aubrey Plaza not in everything at this point? In other news, Boardwalk Empire actor Jack Huston has joined the cast of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which is finally on the road to getting made. Saw V and Grizzly director David Hackl is taking to Kickstarter to get partial funding for his next project, the Wwi thriller Earthworks. On September 13th, the documentary Unearthed & Untold: The Path to Pet Sematary will make its world premiere in »

Director David Hackl Unveils His Earthworks

14 August 2014 4:56 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

War is hell, and Saw V director David Hackl is out to prove it's a lot more hellish than you may think with his latest film, Earthworks. There's just one small detail... he's looking to you to help fund a portion of it! Read on for details.

Earthworks is a WWII horror film that follows five American doughboys on their first night in the trenches of the Western Front as they experience the living (and dead) hell that is No Man’s Land. It is to be directed by Hackl and produced by UK outfit Bluebeard Pictures.

Earthworks exists in an isolated trench/No Man’s Land set and creates a sense of abandonment from the start... Five young American soldiers enter France, and on their first night at an Allied trench, everything goes wrong very quickly. Caught up in a beguiling fog, the young characters each come to different but understandable decisions. »

Saw: The Complete Movie Collection Blu-ray, Digital Coming in September

7 August 2014 7:22 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

Lionsgate stopped cranking out Saw films roughly four years ago and that decision opened the door for the inevitable compilation Blu-ray box set, which has taken its time materializing. A listing  at online retailer Amazon.com has finally confirmed the set's existence and provided us with a September 23, 2014 release date for what Lionsgate is calling Saw: The Complete Movie Collection.

You have to take a stroll down memory lane to recollect how many Saw films Lionsgate produced between 2004 and 2010. The horror franchise started with Saw (2004) and then delivered annual entries with Saw II (2005), Saw III (2006), Saw IV (2007), Saw V (2008), Saw VI (2009) and Saw 3D (2010).

Saw: The Complete Movie Collection will include the unrated cuts of all seven Saw films on Blu-ray and Digital HD across three discs. It would be unfortunate if Saw 3D wasn't presented in 3D, but that's a possibility considering there's no mention of 3D on the box art. »

Thomas Jane, Billy Bob Thornton Square Off Against One Pissed Off Bear In New Grizzly Trailer!!

28 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

I absolutely love horror movies involving pissed off animals. Maybe it’s because we’re so used to loving them in general, that when a horror-ish film comes along that throws a big wrench into that, it makes for some fun entertainment. With that all being said, Saw V director David Hackl is returning behind the helm of the awesome looking Grizzly, which was written by J.R. Reher and Bunraku director Guy Moshe.  After checking out the newly released trailer, I’ve gotta say, it looks pretty great, heavy on gore and boasting an impressive lineup of really good actors. Hackl and co. already had me with just saying it was a killer bear movie, but  they had to throw The Mist‘s Thomas Jane, X-men‘s James Marsden, and Billy Bob Thornton into the mix, and well..badassery indeed folks. Thornton absolutely killed it as Lorne Malvo on season one of FX’s Fargo, »

B-Horror with a great cast in the ‘Grizzly’ trailer

25 July 2014 9:51 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Billy Bob Thornton starring in a B-movie creature feature should be enough for anyone to be sold, but now we have a trailer for Grizzly (formally known as Endangered and Red Machine) from Saw V director, David Hackl. The film follows two estranged brothers (James Marsden and Thomas Jane) and their girlfriends as they are hunted by a savage grizzly bear. The film doesn’t seem like it will transcend any monster movie tropes, but it looks like it might be some really bloody fun. This film may seem very similar to the 1976 film also called Grizzly, but nowhere does anyone seem to calling this new film a remake. The 1976 film itself is widely considered one of many late 70s era Jaws knockoffs, so we’re now in a time of knockoffs of knockoffs. Seriously though, this does look like it could make for a good time at the movies. »

Grizzly Claws through the Cast in this First Trailer

22 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Saw V director, David Hackl, returns to horror with Grizzly. Also known as Endangered and Red Machine, this title involves a grizzly bear on a rampage and two brothers lost in the Alaskan wilderness. Grizzly stars: James Marsden, Piper Perabo, Billy Bob Thornton and Thomas Jane. A trailer for this feature has recently been released. The story begins with several disappearances. Loggers and rangers make great bear food, but this grizzly bear has his sights on two brothers. Blood streaks and claw marks will mar many of the characters, before this 500 lb beast is overcome. The trailer for Grizzly is full of gore. Actor Billy Bob Thornton can be seen marked by this great beast. Other minor characters are reduced to bloody pools and Grizzly looks like a film for gorehounds. The official trailer for the film is below. Release Date: 2014. Director: David Hackl. Writers: Guy Moshe and J.R. Reher. »

Crime Time: Top 10 Serial Killers in Movies

21 May 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

The phrase "serial killer" is most often attributed to the late FBI agent Robert Ressler, who coined the term along with fellow agent John Douglas as they began profiling and researching murder cases in the 1970s. His work led him to have direct contact with serial killers, with Ressler apparently receiving a painting from killer John Wayne Gacy with an inscription that apparently read: "Dear Bob Ressler, you cannot hope to enjoy the harvest without first laboring in the fields. Best wishes and good luck. Sincerely, John Wayne Gacy, June 1988."

The inscription sounds like it came out of a movie, which perhaps isn't so surprising since Hollywood has been making movies about serial killers since the silent era. Sometimes these movies are about real-life killers, other times they are based on real-life killers or events, or, and perhaps even more disturbing, they are based on nothing but imagination. Either way, »

Sewell pushes the envelope with erotic thriller

20 April 2014 5:45 PM, PDT | IF.com.au | See recent IF.com.au news »

Screenwriter and playwright Stephen Sewell makes his directing debut on Embedded, an erotic thriller which he promises will be hard-hitting and controversial.

Shooting started in Sydney on Monday on what is essentially a two-hander, set mostly in a suite at a five-star hotel. The plot follows a battle-weary Australian war correspondent named Frank, who meets a darkly fascinating woman on his way home.

The two retire to his hotel suite where Frank finds his match in a frightening and erotic game of truth or dare that takes both to the edge, and over.

Playing the couple are Los Angeles-based Aussies Nick Barkla (Blind Company, TV.s Rush) and Laura Gordon (Saw V, TV.s Twentysomething). Marcus Johnson plays the hotel porter.

The producer is Steve Jaggi (Circle of Lies) via his Indefatigable Pictures banner. Jaggi tells If that Sewell intends to .push the envelope. with a film that sets out »

The cast of Angel: 10 years on

4 March 2014 7:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Sarah Dobbs 5 Mar 2014 - 07:00

Sarah digs into the post-Angel careers of David Boreanaz, Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, Charisma Carpenter and more...

It’s been about a decade since the last episode of Angel, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off series about the vampire with a soul, aired. The final episode of season five, Not Fade Away, first appeared on Us television screens on 19 May 2004. That seems simultaneously like a very long time ago, and not very long ago at all, because time is vast and human brains are small and fallible, but it’s safe to say that in TV years, it’s a pretty long goddamned time.

The men and women behind the characters we used to spend one night a week with have gone on to other things – some bigger and better, others kind of rubbish – and unless you’re a particularly obsessive superfan, you »

Sherlock's series 3 finale has provided a massive talking point for speculation among fans. Rob looks at the options, with huge spoilers...

This article contains major spoilers for His Last Vow.

"You will not apply my precept," he said, shaking his head. "How often have I said to you that when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth?”

So, in the spirit of The Great Detective, let us look at what we know about the twist at the end of series three:
