Michael Shannon has proved how creepy he can be in action films and thrillers like Man of Steel and The Iceman, but his latest movie is straight-up horror territory. In The Harvest, coming out in select theaters and On Demand on April 10, he and Samantha Morton star as parents who basically keep their sickly son prisoner in their home. When they get some new neighbors, the girl insists on befriending the kid and starts to discover some pretty strange goings-on in the home. I honestly can't tell who should be more afraid of being in that house: the neighbor girl or that poor kid. The movie actually looks really great, and if you've emotionally recovered from It Follows, why not scare the crap out of yourself again? Check out the trailer below, plus even more upcoming horror movies! »
Last month, we reported that British actor Sam Strike was cast as the title character in Millennium Films' Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface. Just a few days later, however, it was revealed that Sam Strike is actually playing one of three teenage psychopaths, one of whom will be ultimately revealed as Leatherface. Today, we have word from Badass Digest that Stephen Dorff has signed on to play the sheriff who tracks down these deranged kids.
The site also reports that it will actually be four teenagers, not three, while confirming last month's report that Angela Bettis is playing the matriarch of the Sawyer clan. Newcomer James Bloor is playing the second of four teenage maniacs, all of whom have an affinity for using chainsaws. These unstable kids are on the lam after escaping from a mental institution, taking a nurse as hostage. The movie is set in the 1970s, »
Cinema deviants can come in all forms or variety. It is just a matter of taking your pick as to what kind of deviant you consider. Perhaps your preference of deviant is of the sexual or molesting persuasion? Or maybe in the arena of hustlers or swindlers or cheaters? Will notorious gangsters and corrupt officials fit the bill for your definition of legitimate deviant sources?
The one type of deviant prototype that no one can question or disregard in terms of an impacting impression is the serial killer…or any killer where the impulse to slaughter is mindless fun or in some cases a perverse release to punish society for their own inner psychological demons and despair.
In “Killer Instinct”: Top Ten Disturbed Deviants in the Movies we will look at the selections of twisted individuals whose overwhelming passion for the pleasure of pain and punishment against their fellow »
