October is fast-approaching, and that can only mean one thing: yes, another Paranormal Activity is primed to launch in theaters. Switching gears to the small screen, though, and Ryan Murphy’s popular anthology series will return with American Horror Story: Hotel, and today’s new batch of stills showcase the various stars checking in for what will surely be a retreat to remember – for better or worse.

Spotlighting recurring characters played by Evan Peters and Kathy Bates, while also drawing attention to newcomers Lady Gaga (real name Stefani Germanotta) and supermodel Naomi Campbell. Assembling under the roof of the Hotel Cortez, it is the former new addition to the cast who will play Countess, owner of the titular abode who also happens to be a vampire in all but name.

The 31 Movies You Must See This Fall And Why

25 August 2015 11:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How good as 2015 been for moviegoers?  This past year audiences have witnessed an opening act that included blockbusters such as “Cinderella,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Fifty Shades of Grey” and “Furious 7.”  Hollywood followed that string up with summer goods such as “Mad Max: Fury Road,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Trainwreck,” “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World” (currently no. 3 all-time at the U.S. box office).  And while we’re currently experiencing the annual cycle of late August dumps you won't even watch on an airplane, the movie gods may have saved the best for last. The upcoming fall movie season has a little bit of something for everyone.  Comedy fans can look forward to Tina Fey and Amy Poehler reuniting on screen in “Sisters,” Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell are also back together in “Daddy’s Home” and Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie look to party in “The Night Before »

Frightfest 2015: ‘Hangman’ Review

24 August 2015 7:35 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jeremy SistoKate AshfieldRyan Simpkins, Ty Simpkins, Eric Michael Cole | Written by Adam Mason, Simon Boyes | Directed by Adam Mason

I can’t imagine what it must feel like to return home after a family holiday, only to find your house as well as your belongings trashed by an intruder. That’s exactly what happens to Aaron (Jeremy Sisto, Wrong Turn) and Beth (Kate Ashfield, Shaun of the Dead) Miller in Adam Mason’s (Broken) latest thriller, Hangman.

However, unlike most cases, this isn’t the work of a vagrant or thief, this is something much more sinister. You see, the person who broke in to the Miller family home, never left and with the help of cameras set up around the house, he can monitor their every move and eavesdrop on every conversation. What starts as minor interaction such as helping himself to food and the families own toiletries, »

Why 'Straight Outta Compton,' Universal Can't Be Beat at the Box Office

23 August 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Nothing can stop "Straight Outta Compton."

The N.W.A. biopic smashed expectations last weekend with its $60.2 million debut, and it showed little sign of slowing down this weekend, when it remained on top with an estimated $26.8 million and a ten-day total of $111.5 million. The movie wasn't hurt by any of the obstacles it faced this week, including the premieres of three new wide releases and several days of bad press over "Compton"'s airbrushing of N.W.A. co-founder Dr. Dre's history of abusive behavior toward women.

Despite all that, the combined total earned by this week's three newcomers added up to less than what "Compton" earned in its second weekend. "Sinister 2" opened in third place (behind four-week-old "Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation") with an estimated $10.6 million. "Hitman: Agent 47" came in fourth with an estimated $8.2 million. And "American Ultra" opened at No. 6 with an estimated $5.5 million.

The Visit Offers Three New Clips For M. Night Shyamalan’s Thriller

18 August 2015 12:53 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

© 2015 Universal Studios

Two kids visiting their long-lost grandparents for the week. Nothing spooky about that. Except it’s the premise for director M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming film The Visit.

His latest movie is the eerie story of Becca (Olivia DeJonge) and her brother, Tyler (Ed Oxenbould), who are sent to their Nana (Deanna Dunagan) and Pop Pop’s (Peter McRobbie of Lincoln) remote Pennsylvania farm for a weeklong trip.

Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of ever getting back home to their Mom (Kathryn Hahn) grow smaller every day. (Trailer)

Shyamalan, whose previous hits include Unbreakable and The Sixth Sense, executive produced and directed the pilot episode of this summer’s terrific (and terrifying) TV show, “Wayward Pines.”

While fans know his blockbuster SignsThe Visit is not the director’s usual thriller. Shyamalan notes, “One day, »

Get Creeped Out With Three New Clips From The Visit

17 August 2015 2:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The M. Night Shyamalan brand was previously synonymous with sting-in-the-tail twists that jerked into view during the final strains of his tense final acts. The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs executed his signature move with flair and aplomb. Sadly, his name has since become inseparable from ridicule, due to his descent into a messy bricolage of genre, style and story with none of those elements coming out unscathed. So, will his next feature The Visit witness a return to his former glory?

Earlier in the year, the first trailer arrived to little fanfare, possibly a cautionary reaction from both his diehard fans and diehard detractors. Now, we have a few new clips from the film, which show us that Shyamalan has leapt onto the found footage bandwagon – a few years too late – to tell this simple moralistic tale.

Interview: Jason Blum Talks Sinister 2 (Exclusive)

17 August 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Terrifyingly mustering an equally frightening amount of emotional dread and sorrow with physical apprehension and fear on a continuous basis can be a daunting process for people whose lives are driven by alarming circumstances. But producer Jason Blum has intriguingly built his careers on crafting and expanding the heightened emotional and physical senses of panic in such popular horror series as ‘Paranormal Activity,’ ‘Insidious’ and ‘The Purge.’ The Emmy Award-winning producer is once again intriguingly thriving on expanding the mythology of what made the first film effective in his latest horror franchise, with the release of the new horror sequel, ‘Sinister 2,’ which is set to be released in theaters  [ Read More ]

Infernal DVD Review

17 August 2015 3:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Bryan Coyne

Cast: Andy Ostroff, Heather AdairAlyssa Koerner and Jose Rosete.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 99 Minutes

“So, The Omen crossed with found footage” is what I said sarcastically as I read the plot to Infernal with my next thought being “Will it be anything like the original The Omen which is a classic, or that re-make nobody watched or talks about, starring Liev Shreiber?”. Surprisingly it’s neither. This is because instead of adopting The Antichrist, Infernal tells us that conceiving a child before marriage, apparently gives you a demon baby. Better start saving up for those wedding rings guys!

The plot centres around a couple who like to film themselves a lot talking rubbish to one another – then the boyfriend proposes. All hell breaks loose in the form of Jesus on a cross, on the wall spinning around behind them. As they embrace each other there seems to »

Win The Town That Dreaded Sundown On DVD

17 August 2015 1:15 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Metrodome

To celebrate the release of The Town That Dreaded Sundown, available now on DVD, we are giving you the chance to win one of 3 copies.

Based on a terrifying true story, director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) makes his striking feature debut with this shrewd remake of the seventies horror of the same name, inspired by the unsolved murder spree that took place in the American border town of Texarkana in 1946.

Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness The Town That Dreaded Sundown picks up 65 years after a masked serial killer terrorized the small town, when the brutal “Moonlight Murders” suddenly begin again. Texarkana’s quiet streets are plagued by a masked maniac who bears striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc decades before. Is it a copycat crime? Has somebody seen the original film »

Blumhouse Productions’ and Elijah Wood’s Charge for the Independent Horror Filmmaker

Article and photo by Michael Lizaragga.

Call it a Mardi Gras for comic geeks or a mosh pit for monster fans, Comic-Con International was again the world’s largest epicenter for the eclectic masses July 9-12. More than 130,000 pop culture devotees gathered in San Diego, CA for a quasi-crazed kaleidescope that ranged from Batman Vs Superman cast member panels to previews of the anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

But amongst the hammers and shields of superheroes were also the axes and gallows of the grotesque and gruesome. Sdcc featured a session with Blumhouse Productions, with Elijah Wood and other producers praising and empowering the independent horror genre and its filmmakers.

It Follows, You’Re Next, The Gallows, Resolution, Unfriended, and The Visit are just a few of today’s successful horror movies coming straight out of the independent genre vault, making film festivals such as Sundance and Fantastic »

Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension Trailer and Poster Chill

13 August 2015 12:36 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

The question on everyones mind is can filmmakers get this franchise back on track after a few very underwhelming series entries Paranormal Activity 4 and Paranormal Activity The Marked Ones both took noticeable blows in quality. Neither picture impressed. And after two strong flicks and a fair third installment the franchise simply hit the inevitable spiral that plagues all franchises. The filmmakers seemed to run out of engaging new plot twists. The scares became cheap and the viewers became detached. »
