SiREN started life in the film VHS as the segment Amateur Night. The story saw three friends trying to secretly film their own sex tape via Google glass style specs, then have the tables turned on them when the girl they bring back isn’t all she seemed. It’s a fantastic short and is one of the strongest stories in all the VHS films. It should come as no surprise that it was decided to make it into a feature length film. It’s a common trend at the moment and you only have to look at the success of recent release Light’s Out to see that there is money to be had.

Sirens would draw Greek sailors to their doom, with their beautiful voices. Now, at least one inhabits director Gregg Bishop (V/H/S Viral) and David Bruckner's upcoming horror feature Siren. Developed from Bruckner's short film "Amateur Night," Jonah rescues a girl, from a supernatural sex club. But, she proves more than he can handle. The film stars: Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End), Justin Welborn (The Final Destination), Michael Aaron Milligan, Hayes Mercure, and Randy McDowell. An early clip from Siren is hosted here. The clip shows Jonah (Williamson) and the Siren (Hannah Fierman) in a bathroom. Both characters are hounded by a masked, knife wielding man. Jonah cowers as the Siren attacks. And, the results are gruesome. Siren is slated for a December launch. The film will see a few theatres this December 2nd. On December 6th, the film will be launched on VOD and on DVD. »

If you remember a film called V/H/S from a few years back, then you’ll definitely remember a segment from it called “Amateur Night”. Written/Directed by David Bruckner, it told the tale of a group of frat boys enjoying a night out on the town, and the two girls they picked up with the intent of …

When 2012’s V/H/S hit the horror scene, it was a new, exciting and refreshing approach to the whole found-footage type of genre fare. One of my favorite segments from that film was David Bruckner’s Amateur Night, which saw a group of guys unfortunately coming across a creepy woman who ended up being a succubus. It was a hit with horror fans and well, now it seems that Amateur Night has made its way into a full fledged feature, Siren. Featuring a new story, a pretty impressive cast and a new director, we’ve got the details for the upcoming film below!
Siren is a horror-thriller about Jonah, an apprehensive groom-to-be whose bachelor party turns into a nightmare when he frees a seemingly innocent victimized girl locked up in a supernatural sex club. Her ruthless handler and proprietor of the sex club will stop at nothing to re-capture his prize. »

Tom and I re-teamed with director Gregg Bishop – who helmed the magical “Dante the Great” segment in our VHS: Viral – on Siren, which is a feature-length horror film based on David Bruckner‘s “Amateur Night” from V/H/S. Yes, in case you were wondering, Hannah Fierman returns as Lily, who many of you know as the “I like you” girl from V/H/S! Bruckner also produced Siren, […] »
The biggest surprise “Amateur Night” has to offer comes after it ends, when it is revealed just how much of the film’s zany events uphold the “based on a true story” label. It is a refreshing revelation, especially after the growing insignificance of the tag, which more often than not is exposed to be a […]

The summer of the year that brought the 20th century to a close, for me, was a fantastic and exciting time. I had just celebrated my twenty-fifth birthday, I was living on my own in a semi-luxurious apartment and I was shamelessly indulging in the nightclub lifestyle – my weekends comprised of hitting disco after disco, losing myself in house music and coming home in the wee hours of the morning to suffer from massive hangovers later that day more than I care to remember. I had commemorated having been out of the closet for two years and I had also just taken up the pastime of re-familiarizing myself with 80’s slasher films, renting them from a still-operating mom-and-pop rental house in large numbers and watching them whenever a free moment presented itself. During a weekend outing to the local cinema in the fall of that same year to painfully sit »

Movie Cliches. We all recognize them. We all roll our eyes at them. Here are another 25 movie cliches that get used waaaaaay to much.
555 for Everybody:
Every phone number in every film and TV show always starts with 555. Sometimes they’ll try to throw us off by using corresponding letters instead of the numbers, but we know better.
Captain Idiot, at Your Service:
Police captains in action films exist for one purpose—to make life difficult for the hero and to threaten to suspend him. No matter if the hero is making perfect sense and has a brilliant track record or that the captain doesn’t have a clue what to do next. He doesn’t want to listen to the hero. The captain is just there to yell at him and tell him that he’s off the case (Which the hero never obeys.)

Lee Daniels will direct the documentary feature film “The Apollo Theater Film Project,” an authorized history of New York’s famed venue.
“I am honored to be entrusted with the story of this incredible American iconic institution and work with this team,” Daniels said. “I used to go to the Apollo Theater as a kid and never in a million years would I have imagined I would be back to be doing this – it is very special for me.”
The Apollo began operating in 1934 during the Harlem Renaissance and became the most prized venue on the “Chitlin’ Circuit” during the time of racial segregation in the United States. The Apollo was a key launch venue for Ella Fitzgerald, Jimi Hendrix and the Jackson Five. Performers have included Aretha Franklin, Nat King Cole, Gladys Knight, Sammy Davis Jr. and Billie Holiday.
