When a horror movie comes with the tag of ‘[insert well-respected director’s name] Presents…’ you can pretty much be assured that the film will be nothing special, as we saw with Guillermo Del Toro and the very dull Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark or the bland Mama, Sam Raimi with the awful The Possession and even the late, great Wes Craven with the abomination that is Carnival of Souls. In this case it is James Wan (Saw/The Conjuring) whose name is attached as a producer and, quite typically, Demonic is a supernatural tale featuring a haunted house and found footage. Typically, because Demonic brings nothing new to

The Harvest: "In his first film in nearly 15 years, the director of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer harks back to the depravity that made his 1986 debut a horror milestone. Equally terrifying, The Harvest is "a refreshingly old-school nerve-jangler with no need for paranormal monsters or flashy special effects" (The Hollywood Reporter).
Maryann (an impressive Natasha Calis, The Possession) moves in with her grandparents after she's orphaned. Desperately lonely, the preteen sets out to befriend a deathly ill, bed-ridden boy (Charlie Tahan, Gotham), despite the outright disapproval of his mother (Samantha Morton, Minority Report, Sweet and Lowdown). Maryann's persistence pays off, however, and during a series of secret visits she gradually

Universal has tapped the screenwriters, who also wrote The Possession and Knowing (both bad), to rewrite its untitled Bermuda Triangle pic, which centers on the conspiracy-laden stretch of water between the Florida Straits, Bermuda and Puerto Rico, where multiple ships and planes have inexplicably disappeared over the years. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar brought the pitch for the pic to Universal back in March of 2012 – along with Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark, they’ll be involved as producers.
Fans of director John McNaughton, known for his gruesome cult classic Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer (1990), as well as that tawdry neo-noir Wild Things (1998), will be happy to realize he’s returned to filmmaking with The Harvest, his first feature film since 2001. An indie thriller written by first time screenwriter Stephen Lancellotti, it’s headlined by the likes of Michael Shannon and Samantha Morton. While there are several standout moments in the film, it’s constantly marred by an underwhelming screenplay that has a few too many inconsistencies to support the development of tension or believability. The insistent need for extravagant twists undermines the logic of the narrative, something unnecessary here considering the intensity of the performances.
Katherine (Morton) and Richard (Shannon) care for their son Andy (Charlie Tahan) in their isolated home in the countryside. Both working in the medical profession,
