M.F.A. Acquired for Us Distribution by Dark Sky Films & Mpi Media Group

8 June 2017 2:27 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As scary as a cabin in the woods can be, one of the most disturbing backdrops for a film can be the college culture, where horrors that are all too real sometimes take place. Such is the case in Natalie Leite’s M.F.A., which made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival (read Heather's review here) and has now been acquired for Us distribution by Dark Sky Films.

Press Release: New York, NY (June 8, 2017) - Mpi Media Group announced today that it has acquired all rights in the U.S. to M.F.A., a critically acclaimed powerful thriller starring Francesca Eastwood in a stand out role. The film, from female director and female screenwriter, takes on the searing current issue of sexual violence on campus.

The distribution agreement was negotiated by Nicola Goelzhaeuser, Mpi's »

Scary Staircase Crawl Featured in New Dead Awake Clip

9 May 2017 3:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Rendering its victims motionless, sleep paralysis is a seriously scary occurrence all on its own, but throw in a sinister supernatural entity such as the one in the new movie Dead Awake, and you really have a reason to add some more coffee grounds to your daily brew. Ahead of its May 12th release, Dead Awake is teased in an unsettling new clip featuring a staircase crawl that might remind you of The Exorcist or The Grudge.

"From the creator of the iconic Final Destination franchise comes the paralyzing thriller Dead Awake. Kate Bowman (Jocelin Donahue) is a straight-laced social worker who finds herself plunged into a world of supernatural terror while investigating a series of mysterious deaths. Each victim suffered from a chilling condition known as sleep paralysis, a nightmarish assault on the senses that immobilizes its victims as they dream. As a terrifying entity begins to haunt Kate’s friends and loved ones, »

Sleep Paralysis Strikes in the Bathtub in New Dead Awake Clip

5 May 2017 11:21 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

New Dead Awake Clip Features “Fatal Sleep Insomnia”

27 April 2017 1:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Taking a page from the playbook of Springwood teens haunted by Freddy Krueger, a patient in a new clip from Dead Awake is avoiding sleep, but he's managed to avoid slumber for over a year, and the psychological toll it's taken is unsettling to say the least.

Re-enter The Void! The greatest 80s throwback horror movies you need to watch

29 March 2017 5:20 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Sean Wilson

As if last year’s nostalgia-infused sensation Stranger Things didn’t make it clear enough, the world is currently going mad for all things eighties. Not the big hair or the shellsuits, mind – rather woozy synthpop, blood-rich neon and anything related to the heyday of creepy body horror.

With Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski’s splattery new gorefest The Void out now, one that gleefully mashes up loving homages to H.P. Lovecraft John Carpenter, David Cronenberg and more, here are the essential throwback horror movies that you need to watch in preparation.

The House of the Devil

Writer/director Ti West is at the forefront of recent revival horror and this deliciously slow-burning spooker remains one of his best. Drawing on the ‘Satanic panic’ craze that swept America during the eighties, it’s the unbearably suspenseful story of a young woman (Jocelin Donahue) whose babysitting job at a creaking, »

The Love Witch review

20 February 2017 9:42 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Anna Biller painstakingly recreates the 60s with this tale of love and witchcraft in the present day, but is it worth a look?

At first glance, The Love Witch is the kind of film that’ll have you saying “well, they don’t make ‘em like this anymore!”

But that’s not entirely accurate.

Whether you’ve sat through Robert Rodriguez’s grindhouse-embracing Planet Terror, the inherently slow pace of late-70s horror in Ti West’s The House Of The Devil, the Trost Brothers’ vision of 80s gang dystopia in their little-seen 2011 effort The Fp, or even the B movie action-comedy short Kung Fury, chances are that in one respect you’ve seen a film exactly like The Love Witch in recent years.

Going all-in on a particular style of filmmaking, as the likes of Rodriguez and West have done before, and as Anna Biller (Viva) has done with The Love Witch, »
