Scary Trailer for Halloween Horror Film - The Houses October Built

15 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Halloween is coming, and you know what that means… horror themed haunted houses and mazes. Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, and it's always fun going out and finding places that offer some fun scares. 

Director Bobby Roe took the concept of haunted houses and mazes and used it as an idea for a new found footage horror film that he calls The Houses October Built. The story follows five friends who embark on a road trip to find the ultimate underground haunt. This leads to some disturbing and strange experiences. This is something I'd actually love to do for real, but I could do without the real aspect of death. 

This may be a found footage horror film, which people are getting tired of these days, but it seems to work fine for this particular story.  I think this is a really cool idea for a movie, »

"Haunt" Won't Linger, But It Might Spook You

15 August 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Buying a house after three kids and their father all met gruesome ends while living there is apparently nothing to be squeamish about for the Ashers, the family at the center of the horror film Haunt. Rather, they jump at the chance to purchase the supposedly cursed Morello home after former pediatrician Dr. Morello (the divinely weird Jacki Weaver, best known as the matriarch of Silver Linings Playbook) decides that losing her entire family in a variety of tragic and disturbing ways is enough of a reason to get out. Like the Morellos, the Ashers also have three children. And like the Morellos, they too will soon discover that the big, beautiful old house has a dark, ugly spirit inhabiting it.

Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari In Negotiations For ‘Ant-Man’ Rewrite

7 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The duo behind Sony’s upcoming take on Sabrina The Teenage Witch are in negotiations to take a stab at the script for Marvel’s tiniest hero. Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari made the 2010 Black List fresh out of Nyu with Die In A Gunfight and later scored the scripting gig on the horror pic Haunt. Now the pair is eyed to rewrite Ant-Man for director Peyton Reed, who replaced Edgar Wright last month. Adam McKay did the most recent pass on the script about the shrinking superhero. Marvel wouldn’t comment. Barrer & Ferrari are repped by Wme and Caliber Media. […] »

More New Writers Tackle Ant-Man Screenplay

7 July 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It has a cast that includes Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, but Ant-Man apparently still doesn't have a screenplay that Marvel Studios are happy with. Following the departure of Edgar Wright over creative differences, and a subsequent pass by Adam McKay, the latest draft has been taken on by the writing team of Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.The pair landed themselves on the buzzy Black List for 2010, right after graduating from Nyu, with the screenplay for their still un-produced drama Die In A Gunfight. They've since had their horror pic Haunt (not to be confused with Vincenzo Natali's Haunter) brought to the screen with Harrison Gilbertson in the lead, and they've also been at work on Jonathan Levine's Legend and the developing Sabrina The Teenage Witch reboot.Too many cooks, or necessary triage? Whatever's going on, Marvel and new director Peyton Reed are clearly finding Ant-Man a particularly tough nut to crack. »

Haunt Mostly Disappears in the Haunted House Horror Genre: A Movie Review

5 June 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*full disclosure: a DVD screener of this film was provided by IFC Films. Director: Mac Carter. Writer: Andrew Barrer. Cast: Harrison Gilbertson, Liana Liberato, Jacki Weaver and Ione Skye. Haunt is an indie horror feature from first time director Mac Carter. As well, the film was developed from one of writer Andrew Barrer's first scripts. And, the central cast is a young twosome: Liana Liberato and Harrison Gilbertson. All of this newness should create for a few interesting bits. But, Haunt is a fairly straight-forward haunted house horror tale. Only a few jump scares and an interesting late reveal, in the story department, create any intrigue. Haunt needed a few more shocks and surprises along the way to break up the film's tedium. In the story, a large manor serves as the film's focal point. Here, the Morello family were cursed by spirits of a netherworld. Five family members were tormented, »

Haunt (2014) Review

31 March 2014 12:39 PM, PDT | Best-Horror-Movies.com | See recent Best-Horror-Movies.com news »

It would have been nice to see a film of this ilk with some ingenuity. And it would have been greatly satisfying had the movie actually been frightening. But Haunt shouldnt be sold entirely short. You may not be terrified by the flick but youre likely to be entertained. It looks beautiful. Hell even the computer generated effects are quite polished. And those performances well theyre worth lauding. There is a lot of passion packed in this package. And even if director Mac Carter and writer Andrew Barrer didnt stir any serious imagination with the ideology at work they scored in other key areas that are just prominent enough to lure viewers in. Ill watch this one a second time somewhere down the road and thats a good sign. »

The Fault In Our Stars Writers Will Reteam With Nat Wolff For John Green’s Paper Towns

25 March 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a star-studded adapation of his bestseller The Fault In Our Stars, about the unusual romance between two teen cancer patients, primed to light up the box office this June, it’s safe to say that novelist John Green is having a pretty phenomenal 2014. Today, Green got even more great news, with Fox 2000′s announcement that the studio has picked up his book Paper Towns and plans to reteam with The Fault In Our Stars writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, and co-star Nat Wolff, for the adaptation.

Considering how well The Fault In Our Stars is tracking (its first trailer broke 3 million views in less than 24 hours), Fox 2000′s enthusiasm in extending its working relationship with Green doesn’t come as much of a surprise. Paper Towns is widely considered to be one of his best works, so fan anticipation is already high for the adaptation. »

Review: Haunt

11 March 2014 10:55 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For his feature film debut, up-and-coming director Mac Carter gives us his own spin on various familiar haunted house tropes in the “better than its bland name would suggest” supernatural thriller Haunt.

It’s opening, ripe in self-awareness that we’re all more than familiar with every kind of supernatural story under the sun these days, establishes early that while Haunt may not be necessarily the most original horror movie you’ll see this year, that doesn’t mean it can’t be a well-crafted, finely executed and highly enjoyable one all the same.

Haunt begins by setting us up with a backstory to its tale, creating an early sense of tension after we witness a grieving man, desperate to make contact with his deceased family, unleashes something far more dangerous than he could possibly imagine via a mysterious box that can communicate with the dead. The story then catches »

Haunt | Review

Haunt Me Tender: Carter’s Debut Reduced to Derivative Schlock

As Mac Carter’s directorial debut, Haunt, quickly unfurls a haul of standard haunted house clichés, don’t be surprised if you’re put in mind of a couple James Wan features. In fact, there’s not much by way of originality to be experienced as far as its narrative is concerned, a film that chugs along until it finally arrives at a revelation that feels as predictable as it is unenthusiastically rendered. In fact, the film’s opening narration attempts to address this issue, and does actually temper what it’s lacking in chills with considerable effort in providing us with a pair of protagonists that elevates the material. Despite Carter and screenwriter Andrew Barrer’s efforts, an overabundance in supernatural flourishes in the second half severely detracts from any mounting dread inspired by its fitting design, which cheapens »

Horror Flick Haunt Fails to Create Any Sense of the Human

4 March 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

"I think it's important to look around and appreciate how lucky we are," a mother states in Haunt, a horror debut from Mac Carter.

Emblematic of much of the film's problems, this "lucky" family is never shown behaving harmoniously — a rote line of dialogue will have to suffice.

Action is replaced with exposition even in the film's press notes, which indicate teenage son Evan (Harrison Gilbertson) is moody; other than the occasional mopey facial expression, there's little to suggest he's a volatile teen, or any other kind of teen at all, as he's given little to do except thrust the narrative forward.

After moving, Evan befriends local girl Sam (Liana Liberato), who explains that his new house is haunted — of the previous family that inhabited »
