Chilling Video Captures Ghostly Entity Hovering Over Man's Bed

11 July 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

What's going on in your bedroom while you sleep? It's a horrifying thought and a question you've likely pondered on at least a handful of occasions as you drifted off to dream world. Do you dare set up cameras and find out like the ill-fated characters in the Paranormal Activity movies?

One curious man recently did, prompted to do so after many sleepless nights and lingering feelings that something wasn't quite right. On a hunch, the man set up a camera pointing at his bed and left the lights on as he slept in the hopes of capturing anything usual.

And boy, did he ever!

In the video, posted over on YouTube channel Altered Dimensions, a strange shadowy figure is seen hovering over the man's bed, briefly appearing for just a few seconds. Apparently he didn't even notice the figure upon his initial viewing of the footage but took a »

Relativity Set To Finance Kate Beckinsale’s Horror Flick, The Disappointments Room

10 July 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

News flash for all you horror lovers out there, Relativity has officially finalized a deal to finance yet another haunted house movie: The Disappointments Room, starring Kate Beckinsale and directed by Disturbia helmer D.J. Caruso.

Inspired by a ‘true’ event – and you should take that with a pinch (no, the whole shaker) of salt – the film centers on a family’s encounter with the paranormal, inexplicable bumps in the night that inevitably go hand-in-hand with this genre, while they unravel the horrifying mysteries that come attached to their idyllic – and characteristically ancient – new home.

If there’s one thing Hollywood has taught us in recent years, it’s that you can never feel particularly safe in your own home. Yes, films like The Purge, The Strangers and Funny Games have turned the security of the family house into a prison of incomprehensible terror… well, the latter two certainly did – Funny Games »

Gillian Flynn’s Sharp Objects Coming To TV

8 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl broke out to become the runaway literary hit of the summer, Hollywood naturally turned its focus to getting the thriller author’s rabid fans into theaters. Quickly, 20th Century Fox and Se7en director David Fincher snagged Gone Girl. That red-hot thriller adaptation, starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, is being positioned as an awards contender and given an Oscar-friendly release in October. Then, Exclusive Media grabbed the rights to Flynn’s earlier novel Dark Places (out this September), which Charlize Theron will star in alongside Chloë Grace Moretz. Now, we’re hearing that Flynn’s debut thriller Sharp Objects is also getting adapted – but, intriguingly, for the small screen.

Entertainment One is developing and producing Sharp Objects, on which Flynn will collaborate with producers Marti Noxon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity). The author will be serving as an executive-producer on the drama series, »

The Conjuring Spinoff Annabelle Secures A Release Date

7 July 2014 11:40 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The common thought regarding horror movie franchises is to strike while the iron's hot, and spill out a cheap installment every year. That's the practice that was picked up by Saw, and later Paranormal Activity and now The Purge. But none of those films were as well-received as The Conjuring, which is not only receiving a sequel, but also a spinoff revolving around the creepy little doll Annabelle. Annabelle now has a release date, and while The Conjuring was a summertime hit, Annabelle is taking on the Halloween season with an October 3rd date. The movie stars Annabelle (yikes!) Wallis and Alfre Woodard, and is based on a script by Gary Dauberman, who did uncredited re-writes on Final Destination 5 and the recent A Nightmare On Elm Street. Director John Leonetti has previously served as The Conjuring filmmaker James Wan's D.P., but as a director, he has two »

Win Tickets To The Advance Screening Of The Purge: Anarchy In St. Louis

7 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

In 2013, the country responded to the provocative concept that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal. Audiences turned The Purge into a surprise summer hit as the film debuted at No. 1 with an astonishing $34.1 million weekend at the domestic box office.

After witnessing the response to the film and listening to the conversations that it provoked, James DeMonaco (writer/director of The Purge and writer of The Negotiator, Assault on Precinct 13) quickly returned to the explosive universe that he created with an even more arresting idea for a sequel: placing the audience outside on the streets during the annual Purge.

A speculative thriller that shows us what occurs during The Purge outside of the confines of a suburban neighborhood, The Purge: Anarchy returns us to a dystopic future. Our government, now re-engineered by the New Founders of America (Nfa), has sanctioned its annual 12-hour »

Jason Blum Talks About the Future of Paranormal Activity

7 July 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Following the news that 'Paranormal Activity 5' had been pushed all the way back till 2016 some serious questions were starting to be asked about the franchises future. And who better to answer them than Blumhouse Productions' very own Jason Blum. Thankfully the Total Film fellas had that very opportunity to put such questions to the man with a plan. Firstly the fifth installment, thanks to its unusually long hiatus, gives everyone the chance to up their game and as Blum explains, 'You can expect a ton of answers. We had a lot of conversations about the mythology...and there was a decision that a lot of fans were tired of getting only little snippets of information, so we're going to answer almost every possible question that one could have about the mythology in Paranormal Activity.' »

The HeyUGuys Instant Watching Guide – July 7th 2014

7 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I’m back! It’s been a long time and I apologise for that, moving house turned out to be a far far longer process than I anticipated or had been led to believe. Three weeks turned into six, six weeks turned into three months and now here we are.

Aside from the length of time it takes, moving house was a real eye opener in other areas too. Specifically in terms of how I inform you week on week of all of this wonderful content available to stream and then how you have to put up with lacklustre delivery from various ISPs.  I was living in someone else’s house on a connection that was not my own, not wanting to name names but there is one of the big three ISP’s in the UK which boasts about having one of, if not the, fastest broadband delivery on »

Jason Blum talks Paranormal Activity 5 and The Purge 3

As The Purge: Anarchy prepares to hit screens later this month, we caught up with horror producer Jason Blum to get the scoop on Paranormal Activity 5 and The Purge 3. Blum promises that the fifth Paranormal Activity will answer "every possible question" that's still yet to be addressed by the franchise. He also hopes that he'll get the chance to produce a third Purge film, this one potentially a prequel that would deal with the revolutionaries and the first ever Purge.

It’s Hard Out Here for an Original Franchise: ‘Pacific Rim’’s Plight

6 July 2014 6:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Not two weeks ago, famed auteur and Pacific Rim director Guillermo Del Toro set the internet ablaze when he announced the confirmation of a follow up to his 2013 robots vs. monsters film Pacific Rim and dated Pacific Rim 2 for April 7, 2017. The biggest surprise wasn’t the official announcement of the sequel though, it was the announcement of the comics and animated series that would be produced leading up to 2017: They are using all their weapons at their disposal and are really trying to make this franchise stick. They’re in for a tough time though, as there’s no question it’s never been harder to get an original franchise made in today’s day and age of reboots/sequels of pre-existing properties. But maybe Guillermo Del Toro realizes the tagline of Pacific Rim holds some truth. “To fight monsters we created monsters” – or in this case, “to fight franchises, »

Weekend Report: 'Transformers' Repeats On Weak Independence Day Weekend

6 July 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | Box Office Mojo | See recent news »

Transformers: Age of Extinction easily held on to first place at the box office over a very slow Fourth of July weekend.Melissa McCarthy's Tammy did fine business in second place, while Deliver Us From Evil and Earth to Echo flopped.The Top 12 earned a combined $120.6 million this weekend. That's down a massive 46 percent from last year, when Despicable Me 2 and The Lone Ranger opened. In fact, it's the worst Independence Day weekend since 1999 ($116.5 million). That's a horrible way to kick off the ever-important month of July, and all-but-guarantees that this is going to be one of the lowest-grossing Summer seasons in the past decade.Transformers: Age of Extinction plummeted 63 percent to an estimated $37.1 million. Without any serious competition, Transformers became the first movie since Captain America: The Winter Soldier to repeat in first place. So far, Age of Extinction has earned $175.4 million, and is trailing the last »

Review: Solid Scares Keep 'Deliver Us from Evil' Strong in Tired Genre

2 July 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

There's really not a lot that can be done with paranormal thrillers these days. With the recent slate of bland possession movies and the Paranormal Activity juggernaut annually dulling the bump-in-the-night brand of horror, it takes a certain angle at the sub-genre or a top-notch style of delivering the thrills for a film to really play in the haunted sandbox. Luckily, there are those entries that realize the ways in which to keep a fresh game in a stale ballpark, Deliver Us from Evil being the latest of these. Part gritty-nypd procedural, part sinister-entity horror, the film nails every tone and hits every scare with results that should satisfy any and all downtrodden, horror fans. Thankfully, there are still films that can keep us up at night. That gritty-nypd procedural revolves around Ralph Sarchie (Eric Bana), a New York City cop who sees all manner of horrors running through the rainy, »

Review: Found Footage Family Film 'Earth To Echo'

2 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With 2008's "Cloverfield," J.J. Abrams and Matt Reeves showed that the found footage aesthetic—comprised of shaky, you-are-there camerawork and rough cutting and usually relegated to hardcore horror films like the "Paranormal Activity" series and, of course, "The Blair Witch Project"—could also be employed to evoke moments of wide-eyed awe and wonder. Unfortunately, since then, the gee-whiz factor of found footage has been largely ignored, popping up only occasionally (in things like "District 9" or "Chronicle"). Instead, it's been largely sequestered in the horror movie ghetto. "Earth to Echo," though, hopes to open things up considerably, with a found footage family film aimed at people who were even too young for the rampaging beastie in "Cloverfield." Maybe the most impressive thing about "Earth to Echo" is the way that the filmmakers harness the inherent harshness of the format, turning it into »

Trailers from Hell and Oren Peli Catch 'The Andromeda Strain'

27 June 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Today on Trailers from Hell, "Paranormal Activity" writer/director Oren Peli appraises Robert Wise's understated 1971 diseased panic film "The Andromeda Strain." A small town in New Mexico is decimated by an alien organism in Robert Wise's "The Andromeda Strain," based on the first book by Michael Crichton to be brought to the screen. Though Wise's film was advertised as a wall-to-wall nail-biter ("The suspense will last a lifetime!") the movie is largely inert with a buttoned-down cast (including Arthur Hill and David Wayne) that only adds to the general lethargy. The comparatively mild scenes of violence and nudity caused some to question the film's "G" rating in 1971. »

Welcome To New York is loosely based on the Dsk scandal and stars the iconic Gérard Depardieu in one of the bravest performances of his career. Co-starring is the equally sensational Jacqueline Bisset.
