We got a look at the premiere of Wgn America's "Salem" a little early and are here to give you an idea of the seductive sorcery the series is offering plus provide a peek behind the scenes at the "Secrets of Salem."
Witches are hot properties on TV right now, and yes, they are the focus of the show with the horrific Salem, Massachusetts, witch trials ramping up and full-blown mass hysteria just around the corner. But these aren't your garden variety witches, and the storyline encompasses a much darker world than we're used to seeing on network TV.
In "Salem" there are also demons and wheeling & dealing with the devil, some very strange goings-on with a toad, a seemingly possessed woman being led around town like a rabid dog on a leash - and that's just in the first episode!
Plus there's nudity and blatant sexuality veering very close to HBO and Showtime standards. »

And along with this production shift comes a couple of stills, courtesy of Styd, from the project based on the original short film by scribe Alan Trezza. The two images feature one of actor Anton Yelchin ('Star Trek into Darkness') and co-star, and all round hottie, Alexandra Daddario ('Texas Chainsaw Massacre') and the other is a a more highly defined version of a previous image first previewed by Entertainment Weekly featuring Yelchin and Ashley Greene ('Twilight').

I've been a fan of Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Masscare III since it was released, but a lot of you have washed you hands of it for some reason. Those of you in the Los Angeles area have a chance to reappraise it this weekend at the New Beverly Cinema.
Screening this Saturday, April 5, at 11:59 Pm, Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is part of Brian Collins' Horror Movie A Day / New Beverly Midnights ongoing series. If all you remember about this one is that it was, somewhat infamously, butchered by the MPAA, or if you're an anti-franchise snob who doesn't think a sequel can have merit, you should consider giving it another shot. It's really just a slicker, pseudo-remake of the original, but with all the 80s characteristics that make a movie fun: a fantastic cast, good one-liners, heavy metal and some inspired carnage.
The New Beverly Cinema is located at 7165 Beverly Blvd. »

Stretch, L.G., Left, Leatherface, Drayton, Grandpa and Chop Top have all be realized in a Manga-style comic that was brought to my attention this week. Thanks to our pal Jacob for tossing a Imgur link our way to a handful of pages to a Manga inspired by Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2. Apparently, these are samplings from a "doujin artbook" by Rei Hiroe that have been lurking on the Internet. I've never seen them before, but I love the character mock-ups.

Eternal prankster Johnny Knoxville has signed on to voice half-shell leader Leonardo in the Michael Bay-produced film, Deadline reports. Meanwhile, Monk star Tony Shalhoub has also joined the voice cast as Splinter, the wise rat who teaches the turtles their martial arts skills.
This rarely happens. Almost never do you look at a festival lineup and think, "I want to see (or already saw and loved) every single film that's playing." So kudos to the programming team at the Stanley Film Fest for really outdoing themselves on their sophomore fest. Filmmakers on the impressive list include such favorites as Miike Takashi, Kim Ki-duk, Ti West, Alex De La Iglesia, Nacho Vigolando, and Taika Waititi & Jemaine Clement. Titles include Dead Snow, R100, Housebound, Starry Eyes, The Babadook, and Doc of the Dead. Plus, how about retrospective screenings of Gremlins, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Eyes Wide Shut? And all of that is only half the schedule. Can you tell I'm excited? A few words about the fest and...

I am a huge fan of laughing at movies, and I love to be scared. However, when those two are combined into the same movie, results can be somewhat awkward. Although I am a huge fan of the whole “so bad it is funny and cool” aspect of cheesy horror films, it’s always weird when it is a serious horror movie meant to scare the hell out of you, with an unnecessary laughable scene mixed in unintentionally. Whether you laugh with me or not, we can all agree that some unfortunate situations can be funny..or maybe I’m just evil. Either way, here are Five Hilarious Scenes In Serious Horror Films, read on!
5.) Carrie – The “Plug It Up” Scene.
Ahh yes. When you really think about it, Carrie is not only a classic among us horror fans, but it also has its share of frightening moments. Depending on how you look at it, »
Looking for an indie horror fix? On tap right now is your first look at Spavine, which will be having its premiere at the Lagniappe Film Festival in May. Check out the first one-sheet and a handful of stills!
Spavine was written and directed by Tiffany Heath and stars Denton Blane Everett (Psychic Experiment), Tiffany Heath (Mulberry Stains), and Jake Austin. Phil Nichols/Facades FX handled the special makeup effects, including the mask you see on the poster below.
"With this film the Spavine team set out to strike a balance between classic gore like Texas Chainsaw and Hitchcockian psychological suspense," says Heath. "Spavine has an art-house film look but isn't 'snobby' in that it really cares about the audience and gives them the proper dose of gore, terror, suspense, and overall real life madness. There is nothing supernatural in the movie. Every bit of this story could really happen to you. »

Mick Taylor is up to his old, sadistic tricks again: Greg Mclean’s sequel to his infamous 2005 Wolf Creek, has been in the works for a couple of years now, but after making its premiere at the annual Venice Film Festival this past September, the sequel has an official Australian release date. The original is an effective and thoroughly tense survival horror film, and despite the obvious influences of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Hills Have Eyes, it has found a loyal cult following over the years. With Mclean once again behind the camera and penning the screenplay, we expect Wolf Creek 2 to be just as great, if not better than it’s predecessor. Australian horror entries rarely disappoint; from The Loved Ones to Wake In Fright and everything in between. The first trailer has been released which you can watch below. Enjoy!

Another highlight is the Mo Brothers “Killers” in which a copycat killer confronts his subject.
The festival will give space to Australian documentaries: “Redfern Now,” Darlene’ Johnson’s documentary about the birth of Australia’s first all Indigenous theater company, will get its world premiere in Sydney.

There's nothing quite as creepy as one person wearing the skinned face of another, as films like Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Devil's Rejects have proven. Now, you too can wear a face mask of your own, and you don't even have to go through the trouble of carving and peeling!
Founded in 2009, The Shoggoth Assembly is comprised of a group of artists who offer their special effects services to movies and various other productions in their home state of Maine, and their incredibly gruesome creations are also available to those outside of Maine, courtesy of their Etsy shop. While you'll find everything from severed fingers to torn off ears in the shop, it is their face masks that really caught our attention, looking very much like the ones Leatherface and Otis Driftwood have peeled off the faces of their victims.
The movie quality masks are made of a durable skin-like silicone, »

Stars: D.C. Douglas, Carmela Hayslett, Tom Detrik, Tammy Jean, Tom Atkins, Michael Berryman, Lloyd Kaufman, Steve Blum, Bonnie Loev, Brian Anthony Wilson | Written and Directed by Christian Jude Grillo
I’ll freely admit there was a heavy dose of trepidation going into Apocalypse Kiss. You see I’ve had the “pleasure” of watching one of writer/director Christian Jude Grillo’s films (Deer Crossing aka Wasteland) before and it wasn’t the greatest of experiences… But just like you should never judge a book by its cover I feel you should never judge a filmmaker from just one film, even if that film was a complete shambles. Grillo’s previous effort was a backwoods thriller, a poor mans Texas Chainsaw Massacre if you will but this time out Grillo aims his sights higher, bringing us a dystopian vision of a city in ruin, controlled by corrupt politicians and evil corporations. »

We’re back with another edition of the Indie Spotlight, highlighting recent independent horror news sent our way. Today’s feature includes photos from Chainsaw Sally: The Animated Series, the first two chapters from the novel Survivor Max, the uncensored trailer for Smothered with Bill Moseley and Kane Hodder, Camp Dread DVD release details, and much more:
First Two Chapters of Survivor Max: “Meet Max, an 11-year old boy who was stuck in another boring day at school when the lock down alarm went off. They were under quarantine. He escaped and made it home, only to discover he’d have to find a way to survive this plague alone. Little did he know his father, his only parent, was among the infected. Slow-moving and non-thinking, the “lamebrains” swarmed his apartment complex, hunting survivors to feed their insatiable hunger for living flesh. Now he must apply his Porcupine »

Kim Henkel, writer of the classic horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and writer/director of its third sequel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (although the less said about that the better), returns to the horror genre with Butcher Boys, his first feature in almost twenty years.
In 1729 Jonathan Swift published A Modest Proposal, a satirical tome in which he suggested Ireland offer up their children as food, using cannibalism as a metaphor for the exploitation of the poor by the rich. Well jump to 2014 and Butcher Boys takes this metaphorical concept and turns it into filmic terror as a birthday celebration at an upscale restaurant sets in motion events that bring a group of friends face to face with the macabre »

Tuesday night at the NerdMelt theater in Los Angeles, television writer and creator Eric Kripke was on hand for a panel called Genre Smash!—a nonprofit event sponsored by the Writer’s Guild Foundation that drew a packed house into the back of Meltdown Comics. Kripke is perhaps best known as the creator of the brothers-fighting-monsters series Supernatural, now set to enter its tenth season on the CW, but Kripke also had a lot to say about his new show Revolution on NBC (with J.J. Abrams), the screenwriting process, and his early days on shows like the WB’s Tarzan (which became a running joke throughout the evening as the ultimate crappy starting point—“It sucked. It just sucked” ).
Throughout the panel, Kripke was disarmingly funny, just as prepared to deprecate himself as speak about his successes. A thread of spontanaiety accompanied most of his writing advice, insisting »

In this exclusive clip from Dark House, the new film from Victor Salva (Jeepers Creepers), five friends are traveling in a van... with no cell phone service... and a stranger appears as if from nowhere. With Victor Salva at the helm, you can be certain that this will turn out less like Scooby-Doo and more like Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Dark House is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises; a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens, but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may have already reached out to Nick’s unborn child.
Dark House is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles. It will open »

Patton Oswalt once said, in a rant lashing out against generic non-descript movie titles like Something's Gotta Give or Feelin' Kinda Sorta, that the all time greatest movie title is three words long: Texas Chainsaw Massacre. [Actual original title: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.] A name that tells you everything you need to know. Texas - oh that's not good. Chainsaw - oh shit! Massacre!!! "I could watch that movie in my head right now." But, jokes aside, Tobe Hooper's 1974 Diy horror masterpiece is like no film made before it or since. It's been 40 years since Hooper shocked the world with TCM, a horror film so gritty and vile the trajectory of the genre would be irreconcilably altered. One could even argue that the...
