Exclusive: ‘Saw’ actor Costas Mandylor open to franchise return

29 June 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Saw actor Costas Mandylor has exclusively revealed to Thn that he’s open to coming back for a future movie. Costas Mandylor at Collectormania 23. Photo Credit: Neil Hughes

Saw was one of the infamous films that pioneered what has now come to be known as ‘torture porn’. Arriving in 2004 the film had two strangers awaken in a grotty bathroom, each shackled to a pipe. Their only way out was to saw through their ankles with a rusty, and rather flimsy hacksaw blade. The pair were part of a ‘trap’ devised by a deviant new serial killer who wasn’t really a serial killer. Sounds confusing I know, but Jigsaw, aka John Kramer, believed that confronting people with their morality and their indiscretions at the same time made them appreciate life more if they lived. Granted, despite his vision, most subjects ended up dead rather than alive and appreciative.

The series ran for seven films, »

The Midnight Swim Review

29 June 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“Budgets? We don’t need no stinking budgets!” Sara Adina Smith (probably) uttered before making The Midnight Swim, because budgets be damned, this focused tale-teller achieves chills through natural, organic storytelling. You won’t find a single special effect, any inclusion of CGI, or any trace of cinematic magic, yet tension mounts like a thick fog rolling over a glassy lake. It’s a slow, steady burn whose mundane presentation certainly won’t play to all audiences equally, but for more patient minds, an Earthy story ripe with curiosity and exploration exists for the taking. And what an oh-so-sugary-sweet victory for Smith it is.

This is a “W” for the little guys; the ones who go the independent route so they can tell their own story without restriction. On the flip side, I’m sure a whole new generation of wannabes will now be inspired to find the same success »

Review: Anarchy Parlor

26 June 2015 5:32 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Every so often, a new sub-category of fright film comes along that takes the horror community by surprise, generated by a one film with a simple idea, capturing it onto celluloid, and delivering it to a mass audience. When that one film that starts a revolution and re-vitalizes interest in the genre his it big, it then becomes a blueprint for other films to carbon copy it in hopes of duplicating the same interest and revenue of its successful template. When The Last Broadcast and The Blair Witch Project were made and released, a substantial amount of copy-cat films were made that intended to replicate the same, exact low budget, shaky-cam, cinema verite-style of filmmaking that are still being produced ad nauseam as this review is being written. As with the release of Paranormal Activity, there was a sudden boom in films being made that followed the same formula almost »

The Green Inferno Trailer Is A Slacktivist’s Worst Nightmare

26 June 2015 8:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno is coming to theaters, and as the horror director’s ardent followers prepare for what’s sure to be some spectacular bloodletting, a new trailer for the cannibal pic has dropped on the film’s official Facebook page.

Though we’ve know the plot of the movie for ages (it screened at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and was originally due to arrive last year, before disagreements with a financier led to the movie getting delayed), Roth’s latest follows a group of college activists who head to the rainforest to protect an indigenous tribe, only for their plane to crash and them to end up captives of the very same natives they had been attempting to help.

Fear will eat you alive. Watch the new trailer for Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno and prepare yourself for September 25th.

Interview: Producer Jason Blum on the Future of Blumhouse and Always Chasing Scary Movies

25 June 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Producer Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions really only started to branch out beyond the Paranormal Activity franchise three years ago, but those three years have been ridiculously prolific. In that short time, Blumhouse has established itself as a powerhouse in Hollywood horror, with a consistent string of hits like Insidious, Sinister, and The Purge proving that low budgets don't have to equate to bad movies. Blumhouse has even begun dipping its toes outside of the horror genre, most notably with last year's Best Picture nominee Whiplash. And it's all because Blum had this crazy plan to enable filmmakers to make the kind of movies they want to make so long as they aim high and spend low. Last week one of Blumhouse's most recent hits...

The Last Horror Blog: 'Paranormal Activity,' 'Final Girl, an Animated 'Night of the Living Dead' and More

Welcome to The Last Horror Blog, a biweekly column on all things horror. The Latest Horror News New Paranormal Activity trailer takes us to The Ghost Dimension I’ve always had mixed feelings about the Paranormal Activity franchise. I like the idea of them, but the yearly sequels often felt like a case of diminishing returns as we sat through 90 minutes of doors slamming and sheets taking shape only to get a five-minute finale that raised more questions than answers. However, Greg Plotkin’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension is promising to be the final film in the franchise – and this new trailer has me intrigued if only because I’m hoping we’ll finally learn the truth about the demonic Toby and the coven of witches.

Paranormal Activity 6 trailer: find a pale child and a lumpy pond, shoot on CCTV

25 June 2015 6:33 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

For those who may not have caught all in the found footage franchise, here’s a handy recap so you can extract maximum chills from the sixth instalment

In October, the Paranormal Activity juggernaut will finally come screeching to a halt in the form of Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension. The film promises to answer every single question raised by all the previous Paranormal Activity movies, up to and including “Why on Earth is the demon called Toby?” and “Are they really still making Paranormal Activity films?”. Better yet, it’s going to answer them in 3D, because you haven’t seen an interminable shot of a static corridor until you’ve seen it in all three dimensions.

What happened to the Suspiria remake?

25 June 2015 3:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Three years ago, a remake of Dario Argento's Suspiria seemed to be ready to go ahead. So what happened to it? Its former director explains.

Visually and aurally sumptuous, Dario Argento's Suspiria was one of the most striking horror movies of its age. The soundtrack was cacophonous, the cinematography drenched in colour and often beautiful - even when Argento was spattering the screen with claret.

In 2008, director David Gordon Green risked the ire of horror fans everywhere when he revealed to MTV that he planned to remake Argento's nightmare classic. It could have been a starry affair, too, with Natalie Portman on board as producer and star. That incarnation of the movie appeared to fall apart, though, and Portman ultimately went on to make Black Swan with Darren Aronofsky - a film about a ballet dancer with more than a touch of Argento's delirious brand of storytelling running through it. »

Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’s Trailer Has a Lot of Nostalgic Doom

24 June 2015 11:20 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Help, help, help, the full Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension trailer is here, and it's chock-full of scary stuff from your childhood that you probably shouldn't Google late at night (or ever again): Bloody Mary, spirit photography, people talking backward on recordings, cardboard boxes, pools of water at night in pitch black. This movie needs Paul Feig, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, & Co. Asap. It has to be weird-scary, though, because this is reportedly the final installment. The saga will go out with a nostalgic bang in October and will have a 3-D component because these people think flat demons aren't scary. »

Trailer Breakdown - Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

24 June 2015 1:55 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Producer Jason Blum has confirmed that Ghost Dimension will be the absolute last sequel in the Paranormal Activity franchise, which began in 2009 after the first film became a surprise hit, reigniting the love for found footage cinema in Hollywood.

With a definite ending looming, we have so many lingering questions regarding Paranormal Activity. Will we find out what Toby actually looks like up close? Who is Toby? Will we ever find out why these families keep on get terrorized by ghosts (and, we assume, their respective dimensions)?

Let’s break down the trailer for Ghost Dimension, the final installment of the Paranormal Activity franchise, and figure out what terrors are in store for us this October:

“Where did you get this?”

Oh, you got this weird VHS from a box the old homeowners left in the basement – and the tapes are labeled with menacing titles like “The Letting” and “Lesson 14”? Yeah, »

Watch: First Trailer for ‘Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension’

24 June 2015 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Remember that old urban legend about saying “Bloody Mary” in front of a mirror? The first trailer for “Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension” brings that myth to life.

The new trailer for the sixth and supposedly final installment in the super-low-budget horror franchise introduces the Fleeges family, who have moved into a new house that — surprise — is crazy haunted.

After reviewing some old VHS tapes found in the attic, the family realizes that their spooky situation is no accident. Enter creepy little girls talking backwards, evil demon Toby, scary mirror tricks, etc. Thanks to cameras with a special lens, it looks like the titular supernatural action that was always cleverly obscured will finally be seen by the audience.

“The Ghost Dimension” will star Chris J. Murray, Brit Shaw and Ivy George as the terrorized family. Gregory Plotkin, an editor on the past four films in the series, directs.

In case the first five Paranormal Activity movies didn't spook you, another one is hitting theaters on Oct. 23.

Full-Length Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension Trailer Opens Up A Whole New Can Of Worms

24 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Barely 24 hours have passed since the release of the eerie first teaser for Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension and Paramount – showing a complete disregard to those with bad nerves – has now unveiled the full-length clip.

Billed as the fifth and final entry in the cult horror series, The Ghost Dimension will be helmed by Gregory Plotkin, who has served as both editor and co-producer on a number of entires in the franchise. The trailer itself paints a very familiar scene; naive family moves into a deceivingly nice house, stumbles upon some form of spiritual conduit, shit hits the fan.

In this instance, The Ghost Dimension‘s MacGuffin is a collection of old video tapes and a mysterious, unwieldy camera that holds the power to peek into the titular alternate reality. From there, our protagonists – led by Chris J. Murray and Brit Snow – uncover dark secret after dark secret causing all sorts of supernatural trouble. »
