First poster for Creep starring Mark Duplass

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ahead of its digital release next month, a first poster has arrived online for The Duplass Brothers and Blumhouse ProductionsCreep, which is directed by Patrick Brice and stars Brice alongside Mark Duplass; check it out here…

Looking for work, Aaron (Patrick Brice) comes across a cryptic online ad: “$1,000 for the day. Filming service. Discretion is appreciated.”

Low on cash and full of naiveté, he decides to go for it. He drives to a cabin in a remote mountain town where he meets Josef (Mark Duplass), his cinematic subject for the day. Josef is sincere and the project seems heartfelt, so Aaron begins to film. But as the day goes on, it becomes clear that Josef is not who he says, and his intentions are not at all pure.

Someone is Coming to The Gallows

26 May 2015 4:07 PM, PDT | Filmonic.com | See recent Filmonic news »

Charlie is not someone you want to call in the new trailer for the latest found footage supernatural horror from Blumhouse Productions (Insidious, Paranormal Activity), called The Gallows. With a name like The Gallows, a teen centered found footage supernatural horror set in a modern-day high school is probably the last premise I was expecting. […]

'Poltergeist' (2015) Movie Review

22 May 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

What made Tobe Hooper's -- or Steven Spielberg's, depending on whom you ask -- Poltergeist so iconic was how it blended a mix of humor, heart and character with the same atmosphere and tension. It became the rare mainstream Hollywood thriller with just the right technical and creative talent to shine. In turn, Gil Kenan's 2015 remake is disappointing in how it's basically the opposite: cold, generic and entirely ho-hum. It's by no means the worst horror remake of late, but that it has the skills behind-and-in-front of the camera to exceed and only settles on mediocrity makes this re-imagining almost as degrading. Kenan's take follows the Bowen family, which includes the recently unemployed Eric (Sam Rockwell), his wife Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt) and their three children -- older daughter Kendra (Saxon Sharbino), son Griffin (Kyle Catlett) and youngest daughter Madison (Kennedi Clements) -- as they've just moved into a new suburban home. »

Poltergeist review: Dismal remake delivers snores not shivers

22 May 2015 8:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Gil Kenan; Screenwriter: David Lindsay-Abaire; Starring: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements, Jared Harris; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

If familiarity breeds contempt then overfamiliarity brings boredom. This lazy, unimaginative remake of horror classic Poltergeist supplies snores instead of shudders and inertia instead of intrigue, failing to muster any significant fresh ideas or sustain any tension.

Moving into a property built on an ancient burial ground is a marginally more doomed accommodation arrangement than a flatshare with Katie Hopkins and Perez Hilton. As per its predecessor's plot, the 2015 version positions a wholesome American family in this precarious scenario and unleashes a procession of progressively supernatural proceedings on them.

Whereas Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper's original transfixed viewers with its imaginative sense of dread and foreboding atmosphere, Gil Kenan's remake spectacularly fails to instill a sense of jeopardy despite some smart camerawork and solid performances from all the leads, »

What the Long-Delayed 'Area 51' Actually Gets Right About Sci-fi and Horror

21 May 2015 9:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Welcome to The Last Sci-Fi Blog, a biweekly column on all things science fiction. This week we take a look at Oren Peli's long-delayed Area 51. Was it worth the wait? Find out below. Area 51 was supposed to be director Oren Peli's immediate follow-up to Paranormal Activity, the film that sent shockwaves through the horror genre and transformed its maker into an overnight sensation. Instead, the found footage sci-fi/horror movie was filmed in 2009 and sat on the shelf for years, eventually getting a quiet (and very limited) theatrical run this month. Most of the people who do watch it will watch it on some kind of streaming service. Most of the people who watch it will not like it. That shouldn't come as a surprise -- did anyone think that a movie delayed for...

Area 51 Review

19 May 2015 1:48 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Area 51 – where the hell do I begin? You have to respect Oren Peli for single-handedly redefining the horror landscape with a 10K budget and a haunted video tape (Paranormal Activity), an act that led everyone to assume the director would be treated as a golden God on whatever project he decided to tackle next. Unsurprisingly, Area 51 was announced – an obvious thematic followup. Found footage scares, alien conspiracies and a handful of unknowns who run around the Neveda desert? Hell, Peli was able to accomplish unspeakable bouts of terror by using an invisible monster, now he’d actually have evil creatures to play with! Blumhouse fanatics immediately started salivating based on Peli’s concept alone.

But then uncertainty set in. Years passed with no updates on the Area 51 front, Peli kept producing and writing other projects (The River), and not even Jason Blum could confirm what the hell »

‘Poltergeist’ Review: Sam Rockwell Leads a Talented Cast Busted by Retread Ghosts

19 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The TVs are bigger than they were in 1982, but the scares in the new “Poltergeist” don’t match the ones offered by director Tobe Hooper and producer Steven Spielberg the first time around. This new spooky-house chiller never escapes the shadow of its predecessor, but it also pales next to the scores of subsequent movies — “The Conjuring,” “Insidious,” and “Paranormal Activity,” to name just a few — that have already stripped the original “Poltergeist” for parts. Even if the results are forgettable, producer Sam Raimi has, if nothing else, assembled an impressive team. Director Gil Kenan made his directorial debut with. »

Quiz: Guess that ghost!

18 May 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Cinema has long had an obsession with the undead. Everything from zombies to vampires to mummies have taken their fair share of turns on the big screen. These are all fine and have all had their truly terrifying moments, but nothing compares to good old-fashioned ghosts.

Where would horror movies be without ghosts? Nowhere good, that’s for sure. They have come in a variety of forms over the years, looking (almost) like normal people in Ghost and Beetlejuice, demonic corpses in The Conjuring and The Woman in Black, and semi-transparent blob-like shapes in Ghost Busters. Some movie ghosts can’t even be seen, like those in Paranormal Activity and The Amityville Horror, but that doesn’t make them any less menacing.

This month sees the release of a remake of a true horror classic with Poltergeist. Directed by Gil Kenan and based on a story by Steven Spielberg, this »
