“Look What I Made You”: In Defense Of James Wan’s Death Sentence (2007)

24 January 2015 3:10 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Mention James Wan’s name, and more times than not, the Saw or Insidious series will come up. Every once in a great while, a fan of the criminally underrated Dead Silence will be brought up (and rightfully so, it’s wonderful), but for the most part, Wan’s fanbase tends to focus on the traps of Saw, the ghosts of Insidious or the frightening Warren experiences of The Conjuring.  One film in Wan’s filmography that always seems to get the shaft in conversations or isn’t referred to much, is his loose adaption of Brian Garfield’s novel, Death Sentence. That film has always held a spot in my heart for many reasons, the writing, the music, the performances, and most of all, the morality tales and lessons that though are not subtle whatsoever, speak volumes about how far we can get from who we are, while trying »

Forecast: 'Sniper' to Easily Fight Off Weak Competition This Weekend... >

22 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Three new wide releases hit theaters this weekend, though none of them have the slightest chance of taking first place away from American Sniper.Among those new releases, The Boy Next Door seems to have the edge; the Jennifer Lopez thriller should wind up in second place with at least $15 million. Meanwhile, Mortdecai and Strange Magic will likely wind up below $10 million.American Sniper opened to a stunning $89.3 million last weekend, which ranks second all-time for an R-rated movie behind The Matrix Reloaded. It has also held well through the week*its $7.55 million Wednesday haul is very impressive*which is usually a good indicator of a strong second weekend.To help meet the high demand, American Sniper is expanding to 3,705 theaters, which is the widest release ever for an R-rated movie. Based on the mid-week performance, it's likely that the movie earns at least $50 million this weekend. If it gets closer to $60 million, »

'The Mule' Clip Featuring Leigh Whannell | Exclusive

21 January 2015 1:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Leigh Whannell reunites with his Insidious co-star Angus Sampson both in front of and behind the camera for the new thriller The Mule, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD this week from XLRator Media. Whannell and Sampson will return as Specs and Tucker in the highly-anticipated Insidious Chapter 3 this summer, but you can check out Leigh in a much different role as Gavin Ellis in our exclusive clip from The Mule.

The plot is inspired by true events, set in 1983, following a naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach, who is detained by Australian Federal Police. Alone and afraid, The Mule (Angus Sampson) makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence...literally. And by doing so becomes a "human time-bomb," dragging cops, criminals, lawyers and his mother into his impossible escapade. This scene shows one of the very angry men the mule's friend Gavin encounters on his perilous journey, »

Jason Blum Explores Production Options in China (Exclusive)

20 January 2015 8:01 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Shanghai – Top U.S. indie producer Jason Blum (“Insidious,” “Whiplash”) is exploring the possibility of setting up shop in China.

Blum and his Blumhouse Productions business partner Charles Layton have this week held a series of meetings in Shanghai. They they were part of a delegation of Hollywood and finance industry executives attending the opening of Film Finances Inc.’s first China office.

“We are looking to replicate the same model we have in North America,” said Layton.

“We are less interested in bringing U.S. movies into China, and more interested in bringing the process here, using the techniques we have in the U.S. with Chinese directors and producers,” Blum told Variety. “We want to find scary stories here in China.”

That would mean involvement in producing low-budget, youth-targeted horror for the Chinese market. “If it can export, so much the better,” said Blum.

New Trailer for Cyber-Slasher Horror Film Unfriended

19 January 2015 11:56 AM, PST | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

This April revenge comes online in the new cyber-slasher film Unfriended. MTV launched the new trailer for the horror film recently (see above). And now, thanks to Universal Studios, the film finally has an official release date set for April 17, 2015.

Unfriended, you may recall, was originally called Cybernatural as it made its way through the genre festival circuit. The death-by-Skype tale of a group of friends being stalked online on the anniversary of their clasmate’s death looks to breath new life into the found footage genre and give everyone a reason to stay offline in the near future. For my money, this looks intriguing enough to give a look as something that could be a bit more enjoyable than the latest offerings in the field (I’m looking at you endless Paranormal Activity films).

DVD Review – Grace: The Possession (2014)

19 January 2015 4:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Grace: The Possession, 2014.

Directed by Jeff Chan.

Starring Alexia FastLin Shaye, Alan DaleBrett Dier, Joel David Moore and Alexis Knapp.

Synopsis:

A virginal Catholic teenager leaves her religious grandmother’s house to go to college and soon finds that drink and drugs are the least of her worries.

The trouble with making a possession film in the 21st century is that it has been done quite definitively already. The Exorcist pretty much covered all the bases back in 1973, and although there have been some entertaining knock-offs since then – Amityville II: The Possession basically re-told the same story but with the touch of Dino De Laurentiis adding some unintentional quasi-comic hilarity – and a bit of a re-invention with the likes of The Last Exorcism adding a found footage spin on things, you’ve really got to work hard these days to make a movie about possession stand out. »

MTV Posts the Skype-Terror ‘Unfriended’ Trailer

18 January 2015 8:55 PM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

MTV exclusively broke out the trailer for the latest horror film, Unfriended, via their YouTube page. Jo Satana reviewed the film back when it played under the title Cybernatural at Fantasia 2014 in Montreal.

If you can’t wait, read Jo’s review here.

This sort of reminds me of the other film, The Upper Footage, mixed in with with that segment from V/H/S/2. I’ve heard decent things about the flick so I’m looking forward to some cyber scares when it comes out April 17, 2015.

Synopsis

Ushering in a new era of horror, Universal PicturesUnfriended unfolds over a teenager’s computer screen as she and her friends are stalked by an unseen figure who seeks vengeance for a shaming video that led a vicious bully to kill herself a year earlier.

First Trailer For Unfriended Plays Like A Skype Generation Slasher

14 January 2015 2:20 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal acquired their next big horror outing, Unfriended (previously called Cybernatural) after watching a test audience go bananas during a screening. There’s absolutely no better judge of a film’s quality than a public who haven’t paid to see it, and based off the first trailer, which was released today, those terrified moviegoers could have been onto something.

Storywise, the film picks up one year after the death of teenager Laura Barns, who killed herself after a mortifying video of her wound up going viral online. As you may have guessed, the anniversary of her death provokes a return to the web for her angsty spirit as she takes her revenge on her bullies. Via Skype. Yes, it makes no bones about the fact it panders those who probably don’t recall the pre-Internet days.

Developed by Wanted helmer Timur Bekmambetov, Unfriended was written and directed by newcomer »

Terror Uploads Online in the First Trailer for 'Unfriended' Horror

13 January 2015 7:52 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

When you hear that the horror flick called Unfriended unfolds over Skype and instant messaging, you'll probably roll your eyes. But if you take a couple minutes to watch the trailer for the film created and produced by Timur Bekmambetov, you just might change your mind. In theory, this movie just sounds silly, but as you'll see in the trailer, this actually looks pretty damn scary and suspenseful. I was immediately skeptical when the trailer began, but it sucked me in, and this looks at least like a better way to approach the found footage horror craze (Open Windows tried something similar). Anyway, give it a chance. Watch it! Here's the first trailer for Levan Gabriadze's Unfriended from MTV: Unfriended is directed by Levan Gabriadze, making his American filmmaking debut, with a script from Nelson Greaves, who is also producing the film with Jason Blum (producer of Paranormal Activity, »

New Insidious: Chapter 3 Still Is Standing Right Behind You

7 January 2015 1:43 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

2015 promises to be a year full of freaky flicks, from fresh frighteners like low-budget The Lazarus Effect and Guillermo del Toro’s anticipated Crimson Peak to franchise updates like the Poltergeist reboot and Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, but one of the more mysterious projects on the way is Insidious: Chapter 3.

Not a threequel but a prequel, it finds Elise Rainer (Lin Shaye) investigating the case of a young girl who has been targeted by a terrifying supernatural entity – and that’s about all we know. Without Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson in the cast, Insidious: Chapter 3 will be a pivotal entry in the Blumhouse-produced franchise, determining whether or not the series has legs beyond the haunting of the Lambert family.

A new still that recently popped up online after being debuted by USA Today doesn’t give much of an indication about the prequel’s prospects of »

New Ghostly Photo from Insidious: Chapter 3

7 January 2015 7:13 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

James Wan may have stepped away as the director of the Insidious horror franchise for Insidious: Chapter 3, but that doesn’t mean his influence won’t be felt as he has stayed on on a producer. The third movie is being directed by co-writer Leigh Whannell, who worked on the first two films with Wan as well. He has a solid understanding of the story and where it’s going, so I’m pumped to see where he takes this next chapter. 

Here's from the film that features Elise as she is about to come face to face with one of the demonic ghosts from The Further. 

This chilling prequel, set before the haunting of the Lambert family, reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier (Lin Shaye) reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl (Stefanie Scott) who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity. »

Evan Peters and Sarah Bolger co-star in this thriller, which was described by producer Jason Blum as an homage to the 1990 thriller Flatliners.
