Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights: a horror institution

23 October 2014 4:19 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The home of monster cinema, Universal Studios’ Halloween Horror Nights continue a grand scare legacy…

Read about what happened when Den of Geek went along to this year’s Halloween Horror Nights in Universal Orlando Resort, here.

In October 1991, Universal’s latest horror release was little-loved sequel Child’s Play 3: Look Who’s Stalking. The studio that had dominated the classic monster era of the thirties and forties, immortalising the careers of Boris Karloff and Bela Legosi, was pushing a tired franchise through multiplexes stuffed with sequels to eighties slasher movies. But in its recently opened Orlando theme park, a seed was being planted that would grow into a worthy homage to Universal’s cinematic roots: the annual Halloween Horror Nights. 

A year earlier, Universal Studios Florida had opened after a bumpy few months of delays, rethinks, and set-backs. In its very early days, a more accurate version of »

The Babadook movie review: mother of nightmares

23 October 2014 2:20 PM, PDT | | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Genuinely horrific and deeply scary in a way that draws on the most primal of emotions. A horror flick with rare emotional and psychological resonance. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): I’m not generally optimistic about horror movies these days

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I’m trying to remember the last time an actual, straight-up horror film frightened me. And… I got nuthin’. The Cabin in the Woods comes close, but that was scary in ways that were about undercutting traditional horror tropes. The movies that scare the crap out of me tend to be things like the nuclear-war nightmare-inducer Threads, or the lost-at-sea panic attack Open Water.

But now there’s The Babadook, which is, basically, yer standard haunted-house flick with a bit of demonic-ish possession tossed in for spice. Except it’s genuinely horrific and deeply scary. »

Sean Bean Boards The Martian

21 October 2014 11:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

He’s been skewed by arrows in Middle Earth, beheaded in Westeros and drawn and quartered in medieval England, but do you know where Sean Bean hasn’t met a sticky end yet? That’s right – space. Alas, even the final frontier may end up as a resting place for the oft-killed actor now that he’s joined the cast of Ridley Scott’s The Martian.

Bean will reportedly play a Nasa flight director in the survival adventure, which was adapted from Andy Weir’s book of the same name by The Cabin in the Woods co-writer/director Drew Goddard. Though some of you may be wondering just how Bean’s character will wind up perishing given that he’s safely back on Earth, rest assured the actor will find a way. After all, he has a reputation to protect.

All jesting aside, word has it that, in a refreshing change of pace, »

Bean Joins The Martian, Dormer Enters The Forest, Livingston Faces The 5th Wave, and David and Knapp Fight The Nice Guys

The Big Bang Theory Recap: Hocus Focus

14 October 2014 8:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Why do I get the feeling that The Big Bang Theory writers are itching to have a movie marathon? Maybe because everything the guys thought of doing or made a plan to do in this episode ultimately led to movie chatter or the actual watching of movies. Upon Sheldon’s assertion that he and his friends never brought any of their invention ideas to fruition because they got too distracted by the women in their lives, they decide upon a weekend science retreat. In his cousin’s cabin in the woods, Howard suggests. Nope, Sheldon saw The Cabin in the Woods, so he’s not going to a cabin in the woods.A hotel, perhaps? Naw, Sheldon saw The Shining. Big Bear, a house on the lake? “Did you see The Lake House?” Sheldon asks. “Time-traveling mailbox … like time that travels an hour and a half of my life down the toilet. »

Will Spider-Man join the Avengers on screen? That's a tangled web ...

7 October 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent - Inside Movies news »

Remember when you were a kid and you liked somebody, but you weren't comfortable asking that person out? So you told a few friends, and maybe they told the friends of the girl or guy you like, and those emissaries determined whether there was mutual interest. If it's an affirmative, an actual overture could be made without fear of humiliation on either front. If one side isn't interested, however, the other can safely deny involvement. The same thing happens at the corporate level. See, for example, the world of Spider-Man, where delicate preliminary conversations between Sony Pictures (which owns the »

Something’s On The Road In Newest Clip From Bigfoot Horror Film Exists

3 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

On the cinematic calendar, the weeks preceding Halloween are often prime real estate for new horror outings. The spooky season has been proven (scientifically!) to increase a filmmaker’s chances of turning their low budget offering into a bona fide box office smash. But hey, it’s not like Eduardo Sanchez needs any pointers in that department, as one half of The Blair Witch Project team returns to found footage terror with Exists.

The tone and style of the movie look poised to recreate the atmospheric chills from Sanchez’s debut. Keeping the urban legend perspective, this time around a bunch of kids head into the Texan hills for a camping trip. We’ve all seen The Cabin In The Woods, which gloriously deconstructed this exact type of scenario, so it should come as no surprise that something terrifying befalls the group.

'A Good Marriage' (2014) Movie Review

2 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There was a moment during A Good Marriage, adapted by Stephen King from his own novella and directed by Peter Askin (Company Man), where I thought to myself, you know, I'm kind of digging this. In the aforementioned scene, gas station lights and a restaurant sign in the background provide a cool ambience as an unidentified woman walks out to her car, the screen fading in from black to reveal a noirish gray color palette. A dull, eerie piano score kicks in as the woman gets into her car and drives away, unknowingly tailed by another vehicle from which the action is captured. Unfortunately this is the opening shot of the film, and it is followed shortly by a cliched opening monologue, a generic party sequence, an uncomfortable sex scene, and some seriously hokey dialogue. I'm not sure either King or Askin had terribly lofty ambitions for the film anyway, »

Exclusive: Bad Things Happen In Teaser For 'Dark Was The Night' Starring Kevin Durand And Lukas Haas

26 September 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The woods have always been a place where horror writers and directors find inspiration, to the point that Drew Goddard's "The Cabin In The Woods" tried to dismantle the setting and genre entirely. But that doesn't mean there aren't more original stories waiting in that milieu out there, and director Jack Heller looks to send a chill up your spine with "Dark Was The Night." Today we have the exclusive teaser trailer for the forthcoming horror movie, and it sets the mood nicely. Starring Kevin Durand, Bianca Kajlich, Lukas Haas and Nick Damici, the film centers on a small town Sheriff who has to protect those around him when a logging company sets up shop and unleashes a dark evil in the woods nearby. Below, you can get a taste of what happens next. "Dark Was The Night" will premiere at La Screamfest in October. »

Ridley Scott Promises No Xenomorphs In 'Prometheus 2,' Says "The Beast Is Cooked"

25 September 2014 10:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Ridley Scott is moving at a fast clip these days. While we’re still waiting to see if the director can deliver on the promise of the eye-popping spectacle we glimpsed in the trailer for his upcoming Biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings," it would appear that the 76-year old filmmaker has more than a few exciting projects coming down the pipeline. The one we know the most about right now is “The Martian,” an adaptation of Andy Weir’s science-fiction novel about an astronaut stranded on —you guessed it— Mars. The film is set to star Matt Damon with a screenplay by “The Cabin in the Woods” scribe Drew Goddard, and has been blessed with a very awards-friendly release date of November 25th, 2015. Then there’s a proposed sequel to his beloved Philip K. Dick adaptation “Blade Runner,” which he recently met with Harrison Ford about (sidenote: the director »

Michael Pena Joins Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

24 September 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Michael Pe&#241a is in early negotiations to join Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain in director Ridley Scott's The Martian.

Variety reports that talks are still in very early stages, and his involvement will depend on whether he can fit the project into his busy schedule. No details were given for the character he may portray, if a deal is finalized. We reported last week that Kate Mara (The Fantastic Four) was also offered a role, but it isn't known if the actress has accepted the offer or not.

Matt Damon stars as an astronaut who becomes stranded on Mars, and tries to find a way to survive while figuring out how to make it back home. The story is adapted from Andy Weir's book, which he self-published as an e-book in 2012 before Crown purchased the rights and re-published the novel earlier this year.

Fantastic Fest 2014: ‘The Town That Dreaded Sundown’ is a dreadfully uninspired slasher film

22 September 2014 5:22 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Town That Dreaded Sundown 

Written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Earl E. Smith

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon

USA, 2014

The Cabin in the Woods was the final frontier for slasher films… or at least it should have been. Drew Goddard and Joss Whedon’s 2011 horror-comedy took all of the subgenre’s tropes and turned them on their head. It acknowledged every character stereotype and rejected each one. The slasher film received a complete deconstruction, and now it may be best to simply pack it away. Sadly, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heralds an uninspired return to form. It just may be the blandest movie to feature violent homicide and ruthless killers.

A remake of the 1976 cult film, The Town That Dreaded Sundown heavily incorporates its predecessor into its story. Set in Texarkana, Texas, the movie takes place several decades after a string of serial murders were committed. Each Halloween the town »

Fantastic Fest 2014: Horns – The Review

22 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

A film not yet released after having previously premiered over a year ago isn’t necessarily a good sign of things to come. Such is the case with Horns. The adaptation of the popular horror novel by Joe Hill has sat on the shelf since first premiering at The Toronto International Film Festival in early September of 2013. This might not be the nail in the coffin for a film, especially since so many great films have sat for years collecting dust – just read about the behind the scenes story of The Cabin In The Woods. Still, the little voice in my head told me to proceed cautiously for fear of getting burned.

Ig Perrish (Daniel Radcliffe) is going through hell. He is dealing with the personal heartbreak of losing the love of his life (Juno Temple) and attempting to defend his name from a town that seems dead-set on finding him guilty. »

18 September 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's The Cabin in the Woods was such an insanely fun horror movie. As a tribute to that film, artist Alex Pardee created an incredibly cool poster that any fan of the film would love. It's called "The Zoology Department," and it features a ton of the various monsters and creatures that reside under the cabin in the woods.
