Review: The Damned

13 November 2014 11:54 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Victor García has made a name for himself with being the guy who takes on straight-to-dvd sequels for popular films, having directed Return To House On Haunted Hill, Mirrors 2, and the much maligned Hellraiser: Revelations. After going through those sequels, it’s no wonder that García would jump at the chance to direct something original with The Damned, a possession tale that while not being a sequel or re-imagining of something, still gives off that been there, done that vibe, but provides a decent amount of twists and turns while doing so.

Focusing on Peter Facinelli (Nurse Jackie, Can’T Hardly Wait) and Sophia Myles(Underworld)’ characters of David and Lauren, a couple a week away from getting married, and their trip to Columbia to pick up his rebellious daughter for the wedding, The Damned begins it’s film journey with a very familiar setup of a father not »

Jessabelle Review

2 November 2014 9:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jessabelle is a bit of an odd experience, blending a fangless voodoo fantasy with some seriously unnerving scares about inner-demons going bump in the night. While such an imbalance might not sound completely unheard of, the seamless way Reno 911! prankster Robert Ben Garant scripts this Southern spooker manages to polish rougher edges with invasive psychological horror that’s surprisingly nightmare-worthy. Even with director Kevin Greutert’s horror experience coming from the overly-gory Saw franchise – specifically the final two splatterfests – Jessabelle remains solely story-driven thanks to atmospheric haunted house tropes, not distracting, stomach-churning gore. Isn’t it nice when horror movies respect their audience and take time to craft white-knuckle scares worthy of a few less hours of sleep, instead of Ouija-like backhanded scare tactics?

Sarah Snook stars as the titular Jessabelle, a daughter returning to her sleepy Louisiana home while recuperating from a tragic car accident. Her father (David Andrews), now a callous drunk, »

Chris Hemsworth Stars In First Trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea

16 October 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Watch the first trailer for Ron Howard’s action adventure In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex. The film is scheduled to open on March 13, 2015 in theatres and IMAX.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.

The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, »

Metrodome finds horror Spring

26 September 2014 12:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: Horror snapped up from Xyz after Toronto screening.

Metrodome has nabbed UK rights to horror-romance Spring from Xyz Films.

The second feature from Resolution co-directors Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead stars Lou Taylor Pucci (Evil Dead) as a troubled American backpacker in Italy whose romance with a local girl (Nadia Hilker) turns into an unexpected nightmare.

The horror played well in Toronto and at Fantastic Fest where it was snapped up by Drafthouse Films for the Us.

The deal was negotiated by Metrodome head of acquisitions Giles Edwards and Xyz’s Nate Bolotin.

Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, David Lawson and 9.99 Films produced the film with Xyz Films on board as executive producers.

Spring will receive its UK premiere at the London Film Festival and will be released in 2015.

Edwards said: “Just as Ti West’s House of the Devil, Jim Mickle’s Stake Land and Thomas Alfredson’s Let The Right One In invigorated 21st century »

Fantastic Fest Favorite ‘Spring’ Picked Up By Drafthouse

22 September 2014 10:43 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

One of the films I absolutely loved at Fantastic Fest and was introduced to over the weekend was Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead's Spring. Think of it as Before Sunrise with an injection of H.P. Lovecraft. My review is coming this week, but know that today Drafthouse Films and FilmBuff announced they have acquired the film.

Shot in coastal Italy, the film was written by Benson and stars Lou Taylor Pucci (Evil Dead) and introduces Nadia Hilker.

Fantastic Fest: Drafthouse & FilmBuff Acquire Sci-Fi Horror Romance ‘Spring’

22 September 2014 10:02 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Italy-set horror romance Spring has been acquired by Drafthouse Films and FilmBuff in the first sale out of this year’s Fantastic Fest. The sophomore feature from Resolution co-directors Benson and Moorhead stars Lou Taylor Pucci (Thumbsucker, Evil Dead) as a troubled American backpacker in Italy whose romance with a local girl (Nadia Hilker) turns into an unexpected nightmare when her dark, primordial secret threatens to destroy their newfound happiness.

Spring premiered earlier this month at the Toronto Film Festival before making its U.S. debut Saturday night in Austin. Reviews have been strong to the genre-blender described as Before Sunset meets H.P. Lovecraft. Drafthouse Films, the specialty distribution arm of the Alamo Drafthouse, closed the deal for U.S. rights after watching Spring play through the roof on home turf and with FilmBuff will release it in theaters and on VOD in »

Prepare To Never Travel Again After Watching The Trailer For Spring

8 September 2014 3:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Justin Benson and Aaron Moorehead mean business when it comes to horror. Their 2012 film Resolution broke the mould. A claustrophobic headscratcher, the tale of a man who heads to a shack to help his friend sober up before rehab, it was one of the year’s most imaginative moody scarefests. This year’s efforts include a segment in the V/H/S: Viral anthology and Italy-based horror, Spring, which now has a new trailer to ensure you never travel alone again.

The latter premiered this week under the Toronto International Film Festival’s Vanguard program, garnering favourable reviews as a result. The film follows the story of Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci). Spurned on by grief after losing his mother, a big revelation dawns on him: his whole life is going down the toilet. After receiving his last paycheck, he hightails it to Europe and winds up doing what most young people do while backpacking: partying, »

Tiff 14: ‘Shrew’s Nest’ and ‘Spring’ tackle the complex nature of femininity and love, in their own twisted ways

7 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Spring

Written by Justin Benson

Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead

USA, 2014

Shrew’s Nest  (Musarañas)

Written by Juanfer Andrés

Directed by Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel

Spain, 2014

Over the years, Tiff’s Midnight Madness programme has lost some of its grit. Once upon a time, a film as bodacious as Shrew’s Nest would have graced its lineup. Now, the Vanguard programme seems to have stepped up to take its place. While Madness highlights trendier, more easily digestible content, Vanguard takes on the more obscure. Sexy, gritty, dirty, and horrific, Vanguard’s content is far more outlandish than its older, now slightly more restrained cousin. Odd when you consider that both programmes are curated by the jovial horror fanatic Colin Geddes.

Enter two of the shining stars of Tiff’s 2014 roster – Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel’s Shrew’s Nest, and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Spring. »

First Trailer & Photos from Spring

5 September 2014 5:34 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Evan needs to get away for awhile after his mother dies. With no set schedule or destination plan in place, he ends up on the coast of Italy, where he meets and falls in love with a beautiful woman named Louise. Their blossoming romance seems like a fairy tale, but the dark secret Louise harbors could turn their relationship into a living nightmare that’s hinted at in the first trailer for Spring.

Spring makes its world premiere at Tiff tonight. We have the film’s official synopsis and cast information below (courtesy of Tiff):

“When his ailing mother dies, Evan (Lou Taylor Pucci, of the recent Evil Dead) realizes his life isn’t going anywhere. Grabbing his last paycheque, he decides to go on the European graduation trip that he never got a chance to take. Picking a destination at random, he arrives in Italy, where he backpacks and parties with other tourists. »

Love turns weird in trailer for Tiff film 'Spring'

5 September 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Lou Taylor Pucci (the Evil Dead remake) stars in the new movie Spring as a man who, following the death of his mother, travels to Italy and meets a beautiful young woman played by Nadia Hilker. Does the course of true love run smooth? Having seen the film’s trailer, seems safe to tick the box marked “Absolutely not.”

Spring is directed by filmmakers-to-watch Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead, who were responsible for the 2012 indie-horror gem Resolution, and it premieres at the Toronto Film Festival tonight.

Trailer for Bang Bang Baby starring Jane Levy and Justin Chatwin

31 August 2014 11:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

 

In this current culture of major big budget cinematic events, I find myself searching for more subversive experiences. Smaller films that take bigger risks and often payoff with bigger rewards. Movies like Snowpiercer and Life After Beth come to mind. As geek culture becomes the center of the entertainment universe, independent filmmakers can make more genre-friendly small budget films capable of playing with our favorite conventions. Bang Bang Baby seems to fit that bill. A sci-fi musical rooted in the classic drive-in scary movies of the 1960′s.

From IMDb:

A small town teenager in the 1960s believes her dreams of becoming a famous singer will come true when her rock star idol gets stranded in town. But a leak in a nearby chemical plant that is believed to be causing mass mutations threatens to turn her dream into a nightmare.

The film screens this month at the Toronto Film Festival »

Here’s the New Trailer for the Sci-Fi Musical Bang Bang Baby Starring Jane Levy

29 August 2014 5:49 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Bang Bang Baby, developed by Jeffrey St. Jules in the Cannes Film Festival’s Cinéfondation, is an otherworldly musical about Stepphy (Jane Levy), who is trapped in the sleepy 1960′s town of Lonely Arms taking care of her alcoholic father (Peter Stormare).  Stepphy dreams of escaping to a better life on the stage and screen, and when rock star Bobby Shore’s (Justin Chatwin) car breaks down in Lonely Arms, it seems her impossible dream might actually be coming true. But when Fabian (David Reale), the town creep, tells Stepphy that the local chemical factory is leaking dangerous purple fumes that can cause human mutations, Stepphy becomes obsessed with hiding these dark secrets from Bobby until they can escape together and make all of her fantasies a reality.

This unique and stylized film stars Jane Levy (Evil Dead, Suburgatory) in a defining turn as Stepphy, a small town girl who »

Exclusive: Trailer For 'Queen Of Carthage' Starring Shiloh Fernandez, Premiering At Montreal International Film Festival

22 August 2014 7:03 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Pursuing a moviemaking career in Hollywood requires landing an agent, hustling to countless auditions and table reads, networking, and keeping your face in the mix hoping that someone will roll the dice on you. However, generating your own material is another way to not only stand out, but create the kind movie you want to be part of. And Shiloh Fernandez ("Red Riding Hood," "White Bird In A Blizzard," "Evil Dead") has done just that with "Queen Of Carthage." Co-written and co-produced by Fernandez, who takes a lead role as well, the film follows Amos who travel to New Zealand to start a new life and escape his past, only to find that some things can't be easily left behind. Keisha Castle-Hughes ("Whale Rider"), Graham Candy and Amanda Tito co-star in the movie, with Mardana M. Mayginnes (who also co-wrote the script) making her sophomore feature film behind the camera. »

Wes Bentley Joins Zac Efron, Emily Ratajkowski In We Are Your Friends

19 August 2014 6:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since appearing as Gameskeeper Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games, Wes Bentley has been on a roll, taking on parts in small-scale projects like romance Hidden Moon, SXSW entry Things People Do and biopic Cesar Chavez, but expect the actor to step up his screen time in the coming months. Already this year, Bentley has shot roles in such buzzy films as InterstellarKnight of Cups and Final Girl. Additionally, the actor has a supporting role on FX’s American Horror Story: Freak Show. Now, it’s been announced that Bentley’s next project will be We Are Your Friends, an Edm-centric drama which centers on an up-and-coming DJ.

In the film, which will mark Catfish investigator Max Joseph’s directorial debut, Zac Efron plays a troubled, aspiring DJ named Cole, who eventually finds his place in the world of electronic dance music (Edm). Bentley will portray James, described by Deadline as “a wealthy, »

No "Evil Dead 2" Or "Kick Ass 3" Coming?

8 August 2014 2:11 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The remake of the "Evil Dead" came and went last year without much of an impact. Some liked it, some hated it, most didn't really care. That blood-soaked and much darker interpretation of Sami Raimi's pulpy classic pulled in a solid $97 million worldwide - not bad for a low-budget horror film. Even so, there hasn't really been a huge demand for a sequel.

Now it looks like we won't be getting one. The film's leading star and 'final girl', Jane Levy, tells Bloody Disgusting that there are currently no plans for a follow-up:

"I don't think they're gonna make it. I mean, they're always coming up with a new thing - now I hear they're making a TV show. I was like, what? [Laughs]. I honestly don't know, but it doesn't seem like there's going to be an Evil Dead 2 anytime soon. At least, not with me in it."
