’47 Meters Down’ Trailer: Mandy Moore Gets Her Own Murderous Shark Thriller — Watch

’47 Meters Down’ Trailer: Mandy Moore Gets Her Own Murderous Shark Thriller — Watch
Shark movies are back, baby. Hot on the heels (relatively speaking, in moviemaking terms) of last summer’s surprise hit “The Shallows” (never forget that seagull), “Hellbreeder” and “Roadkill” director Johannes Roberts is offering up his own take on the ol’ “hey, maybe don’t go in the ocean” formula that Steven Spielberg so perfected with his “Jaws.”

In “47 Meters Down,” a pair of sisters (Mandy Moore and Claire Holt) embark on what should be a memorable vacation — always a bad move to demand something be memorable — that they decide to top off with a little trip down into the depths of the ocean, all the better to see some sharks up close and personal. While Lisa (Moore) and Kate (Holt) are initially trepidatious about getting into a shark cage that drops them into the middle of the sea,

The Den of Eek! ebook is now available to buy

Feature Den Of Geek 5 Jun 2013 - 10:31

A collection of original fiction based on our spooky storytelling event is now available for your Kindle

A few months ago, we gathered some of our favourite writers together in a dark basement to tell spooky stories. The event, called Den of Eek!, was a great success: we sold out the entire venue, made loads of money for charity, and had fun at the same time.

Why are we telling you this now? It’s not just to taunt you if you couldn’t make it. It’s because now we’re publishing an ebook of all the stories read that night. It features twelve short stories by twelve brilliant people – here’s the rundown:

"Grindr" by Clayton Littlewood (author of Dirty White Boy and Goodbye to Soho)

The Asylum Presents Snow White and the 2-Headed Shark Attack

Oh, if only The Asylum actually was producing a movie called Snow White and the 2-Headed Shark. I would watch that in a heartbeat. But they do have a new dark fantasy retelling of Snow White in the works, and we have new artwork for 2-Headed Shark Attack.

When I saw that The Asylum had updated its website to announce a supernatural Snow White in the works, my very first thought was as to what must have brought this on. Then I remembered that one of the big movies for next summer is Snow White and the Huntsman with Kristen Stewart as an extra pouty Snow White. The Asylum will be beating Universal to the punch by several months with a Valentine's Day DVD release of Grimm's Snow White.

When the King is killed by ferocious reptile beasts, his Queen takes control of the kingdom. She tries to kill her beautiful stepdaughter,

Cooking Up Some Roadkill with Writer Rick Suvalle

In advance of April 23rd, 2011, debut of Syfy Original Film Roadkill, Dread Central had an opportunity to chat with screenwriter Rick Suvalle about his approach to this project and how he managed to make it slightly different than the average Syfy Original entry.

I can tell you from personal experience writing a Syfy Original Film is not easy. You know going in budgets are thin (transparent even), the special effects aren’t going to be very good, and casting is always a game of Russian roulette with four bullets in the cylinder. So, as a writer, you have to try and compensate for all of those hazards up front: use modest locations, limit special effects screen time, and include no complex dialogue or characters which require too much acting muscle. Yet, you still have to deliver the goods and tell a compelling, visually interesting story even though you don’t

The Irish-filmed 'Roadkill', a new Syfy TV movie, is set to air on the channel stateside on 23 April at 9:00pm.

First trailer for Johannes Roberts’ new Syfy monster-movie ‘Roadkill’

Way back in August of last year, director Johannes Roberts screened his high-school horror flick F at the London Film4 FrightFest, at the post film Q&A Roberts announced that he and actress Eliza Bennett has flown in from Ireland where they are shooting a, and I quote:

Giant bird movie… involving a gypsy curse.

I managed to confirm with him in an interview for the films DVD release recently that the the film was, as I surmised at the time, Roadkill, a Syfy channel original movie about a group of friends who take a scenic Rv road trip to their high-school reunion. Their cross-country adventure takes a decidedly unexpected turn when an ancient Gypsy curse takes wing by way of a giant flesh-eating bird of prey.

Well now, the folks at the Syfy channel have finally released the official synopsis for the film, along with the first trailer; and

Trailer and Airdate for Giant Gypsy Curse Killer Bird Flick Roadkill

It comes as no surprise that the trailer for Rhi Entertainment's Roadkill would quickly pop up online once Syfy announced the Stephen Rea-starring monster movie's April 23rd premiere date. More surprising is that this Syfy movie about hit & run, gypsy curses, and a giant bird of prey doesn't look too shabby.

Kate and her brother, Joel, have gathered their five best friends for a scenic Rv road trip to their high school reunion. But their cross-country adventure is about to take an unexpected turn for the worst when an ancient curse takes wing by way of a massive creature. It’s called the Simuroc, and this gigantic bird of prey has found the perfect, helpless quarry in Kate and company. Stranded in the backwoods of the predator’s territory, there’s little chance for escape.

I really don't think the title Roadkill suits a movie with a premise like that.
