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 »

Just as the refreshing supernatural horror thriller Deliver Us from Evil hits theaters today before the big holiday weekend, a trailer for a much more generic and seemingly boring film in the same genre has arrive. If The Damned wasn't generic enough of a title for you, the trailer does a much better job of delivering the same kind of story and scares we've seen time and time again.

Plus, it's just edited poorly with long-winded text bumpers. Watch? Here's the first trailer for Victor Garcia's The Damned from IFC Films: The Damned is directed by »

We live in a world in which pointless sequels are thrown at us like balls being hurled at an annoying clown in a dunking tank. Yes, that's a given, but sometimes even we have to wonder just what in the world goes through people's minds.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that Fox Home Entertainment is moving on a sequel to the 2008 teen-friendly snoozer The Haunting of Molly Hartley. The new film, entitled, The Exorcism of Molly Hartley, will see I Spit on Your Grave's Steven R. Monroe taking on directing duties.
Haley Bennett played Molly in the first film. No word on if she’ll return.
Here's our hope... Steven R. Monroe. Please take this to the darkest, most ghastly and horrific place possible. We love you... love us back!
Apparently the sequel follows Molly Hartley, who, after a night of heavy partying, finds her friends butchered. While locked in a mental hospital for observation, »

"A horror icon is reborn." That might be a little too liberal use of the word "icon." Yes, there's been plenty of Leprechaun films in the past, but they've all been B-movie level horror movies (some even worse), many never even hitting the big screen and going straight-to-dvd. But the tiny little bastard is making a comeback with Leprechaun: Origins, and now Lionsgate and WWE Films have released the golden teaser poster for the horror reboot starring wrestler Dylan "Hornswoggle" Postl in the role originated by Warwick Davis. This likely means the first trailer is also coming sometime soon, so stay tuned. Look below! Here's the first poster for Zach Lipovsky's Leprechaun: Origins from Shock Til You Drop: Leprechaun: Origins is directed by TV movie director Zach Lipovsky and written by freshman writer Harris Wilkinson and straight-to-dvd horror sequel writer Matt Venne (Fright Night 2, Mirrors 2, White Noise »
