The prospect of a remake of I Saw the Devil with Adam Wingard (The Guest, You're Next) at the helm is far more compelling than the idea of Oculus helmer Mike Flanagan taking on a remake of I Know What You Did Last Summer. Not because Flanagan is a bad filmmaker or anything like that, but merely because who cares about a new I Know What You Did... moviec Scream 4 was a bust in 2011 and I Know What You Did... was riding on the original Scream's coattails, so who thinks a new one is a smart business decisionc Now, the idea of Wingard taking on Kim Jee-woon's I Saw the Devil with The Guest screenwriter Simon Barrett is a different story. The Guest begins hitting theaters this week and even with You're Next, Wingard has shown a knack for mixing small doses of dark humor within his terrifying tales, »

High school is rough for everyone, but things get a little more complicated when your prestigious all-girl prep school is severely isolated across a frozen landscape and your parents mysteriously fail to pick you up for winter break. No calls or anything. Such is the case for Rose and Kat, the unfortunate teens at the center of Osgood Perkins‘ upcoming film, February. Described as a coming-of-age horror thriller, the film follows Rose and Kat along with a third young woman named Joan — identified as “beautiful and haunted,” always a great yearbook superlative — who starts a journey to come save them. But as she gets closer, Kat starts experiencing terrifying visions, and Rose is only able to silently watch as she becomes possessed by a sinister, unseen energy. Emma Roberts and Kiernan Shipka have just signed on to star in the film, but it’s not clear which two of the trio they’ll be playing. Since »

Being that 95% of the human race is comprised of idiots, I so understand the desire to never leave the house. Still, there are times when even our places of refuge are violated and become pretty damned scary. Read on for the first word on the new horror flick Shut In.

I love the different kind of projects that Elijah Wood takes on and once again it looks like he’s out to prove that he can play any genre and find a great character, this time it’s in Nacho Vigolando’s Open Windows – the man behind Timecrimes and Extraterrestrial.
This web-based thriller finds Wood playing Nick Chambers, a man who wins a date in a contest with actress Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). However, she refuses to have the dinner and Nick meets ‘Chord’ online and makes an offer he can’t refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realising that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing — and no one — are as they seem…

Horror gaming is a monster in and of itself. Yet, one monster has been seemingly absent from the bloody masquerade of video games... the slasher. That is all changing with Supermassive Games’ upcoming slasher film-inspired Until Dawn.
The game made a stunning debut during Sony's press conference, where they were keen to point out the large role the element of choice will play in the game. The news was already promising, but the developers just revealed how deep the infernal pit goes...
Until Dawn will feature thousands of storyline branches and hundreds of endings. The game accomplishes this through the use of what Supermassive calls “the butterfly effect.” When a choice must be made, such as whether or not to pick up a book, a small butterfly icon will appear, indicating this choice will have consequences later in the game. The path you choose will lead you to one of »

Today is Jennifer Lawrence's birthday, and to celebrate Vulture has dug up a supremely embarrassing curio from the Oscar-winner's past -- scenes from "Not Another High School Show," a bizarre, uniquely horrible Comedy Central pilot that was based on the 2007 semi-success "Not Another Teen Movie." Just watch it.
In the clip, Alison Brie (from "Community," "Scream 4" and "The Lego Movie") stars as Muffy the Vampire Slayer. So, yes, there are a bunch of vagina jokes that are pretty pointless (many center around pubic hair, it's probably good you should know that going in). What makes this parody even dumber is that "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" was a cult series that went off the air at least five years before this pilot went into production. Not exactly of-the-moment satire, guys. Anyway, you'll see a bunch of that and then Jennifer Lawrence, America's sassy sweetheart, pops up towards the end »

The slasher horror movies are making the leap to the small screen with a new MTV pilot, first announced more than two years ago, and now moving forward with a cast and crew.

Wes Craven’s 1996 Scream was easily one of the best and most influential horror films of the 1990s. Its sequel in 1997 was just as successful with critics, audiences, and at the box office. The franchise faltered with 2000’s Scream 3, but started to take a step back in the right direction with 2011’s Scream 4. While rumors have persisted for sometime that a Scream 5 is in the works, Entertainment Weekly reports that a TV series based on the popular franchise is officially moving forward and now has a cast and director.
In development since 2012, the Scream TV series will air on MTV, where other movie-turned-show, Teen Wolf, has a rabid cult following. The showrunner will be Jill Blotevogel (Ravenswood), while the pilot will be scripted by Jay Beattie and Dan Dworkin (Criminal Minds), and will now be directed by Jamie Travis (For a Good Time, Call…). It is curious to »

For those who thought the Scream franchise had found new life after Scream 4 (or was it Scre4m?) might be in for some heartache according to screenwriter Kevin Williamson. In an interview with Cinefiles at last week’s 2014 Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour, Willamson talked openly about the future of the Scream franchise…
“It’s weird, when I pitched Scream 4, I pitched Scream 4, 5 and 6,” Williamson explained to a few journalists. “I pitched a whole new trilogy. I guess Scream 4 never took off in a way they hoped, and so…”
“I’m curious. I’ll watch it. I’ll give it a go,” he said of the TV show. “Teen Wolf »

It's a shame to discover the amount of bad blood that exists between the Scream franchise's creative minds. To hear Kevin Williamson tell it, it doesn't sound like he'll be back to the series anytime soon.
Bloody-Disgusting was recently pointed to Cinefilles by an avid reader. The big story coming out of there is that Scream writer Kevin Williamson still has plans for a Scream 5 and Scream 6, but that nobody seems all that interested in making them.
Of course, this has something to do with Scream 4's rather disappointing domestic box office, and also the fact that the franchise is currently being re-imagined as a television series for MTV (with Wes Craven's involvement). What's most surprising (and disappointing) about this news isn't that Williamson has zero involvement in the television series, but that Craven and co. (The Weinstein Company) seem to have written him off.

A meditative contemplation of the boredom of overprivileged, under-aspiring, shallow, spoiled kids. As you’ve been dying to see. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I can’t wait for the day when James Franco finally comes out of the performance-art closet and reveals that almost everything he’s done in the past, oh, ten years or so has been part of an intricate ongoing practical joke to yank celebrity culture and our knee-jerk worship of those who are famous. His turn as the charlatan man behind the curtain in Oz the Great and Powerful was a big clue, I think. He’s waiting for someone — anyone — to debunk the smoke and mirrors of the fame that allows him to churn out increasingly ridiculous pontifical junk. And no one does. »

In some respects, Animal is a cut above the usual Chiller fare. It boasts a much better pedigree. It’s executive produced by Drew Barrymore and her Flower Films production company. The creature design and effects are by Gary Tunnicliffe (Scream 4, My Bloody Valentine, Feast). The music is by tomandandy (The Hills Have Eyes, The Strangers). The cast is full of familiar faces including Jeremy Sumpter (Frailty, Excision), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy), and Amaury Nolasco (2 Fast 2 Furious, Transformers). Unfortunately, in just about every other way it’s business as usual.
The post Review: A Good Creature is Wasted in Animal appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

<< Continued from Summer Forecast: #1 - 1213. The Fault in our Stars (June 6): As usual, there's not a ton of compelling content for women this Summer. One exception to that is The Fault in Our Stars, which is a romantic drama based off the popular John Green novel. The trailer has over 15 million views on YouTube*in line with most would-be blockbusters*and star Shailene Woodley is coming off a break-out role in Divergent. Look for this to be a solid hit as well. (Domestic: $120 million, Foreign: $55 million)14. Deliver Us From Evil (July 2): Horror movies can provide a nice alternative to all of the big-budget spectacle, R-rated humor, and animated fare that dominates multiplexes during the Summer months. Last year's The Conjuring was a surprise hit with $137.4 million; if anything is going to match that this year, its Deliver Us from Evil. The strong trailer features a lengthy, very frightening »
