The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century
“It” may be a box office smash, but it’s hardly the only horror movie worth talking about these days. Just 17 years in, and the 21st century has already played home to a remarkable number of truly chilling and inventive horror offerings, from a resurgence in J-horror remakes to a continued affection for the classic series of yesteryear, to the massive dominance of the “Conjuring” movie universe and even a “Saw” franchise so dominant that it’s already cycled back into resurrection territory, and that’s just the mainstream stuff.

Aided by a new crop of filmmakers beholden to both their own obsessions and formative years steeped in the classics, the past two decades are shaping up to be some of the very best for the genre, with still more terror being turned out at a frightening clip. From visionaries like Guillermo del Toro and Gore Verbinksi, who can happily

Full Trailer for Adam Wingard's Adaptation of 'Death Note' for Netflix

"Shall we begin?" Netflix has unveiled the full-length trailer (+ a filmmaker featurette) for Adam Wingard's adaptation of Death Note, based on the very popular Japanese manga/anime series. Wingard is the director of the new Blair Witch as well as You're Next, The Guest, and A Horrible Way to Die. Death Note stars Nat Wolff (seen in Paper Towns) as the teen who comes across a book that allows him to kill anyone without any risk of danger himself. But of course there's a catch. Also starring Keith Stanfield, Shea Whigham, Margaret Qualley, Willem Dafoe and Masi Oka. This actually looks better than expected, I will be watching this. Plus, I'll see anything with Keith Stanfield in it, he's awesome and looks killer in this. Here's the full-length trailer (+ poster) for Adam Wingard's Death Note movie, from Netflix's YouTube: You can also still watch the first teaser trailer for Wingard's Death Note here,

New Death Note Trailer: You're Going to Get Yours

Boy, I hope this is good. Directed by Adam Wingard, Death Note is heading to Netflix on August 25. The English-language version has the following official description: "Intoxicated by the power of a supernatural notebook, a young man begins killing those he deems unworthy of life." That is what is promised, and that is what's delivered in the first full trailer, which you can watch below. I've enjoyed Adam Wingard's directing work in the past, especially The Guest, You're Next and A Horrible Way to Die, and though I didn't care for Blair Witch, I remain optimistic about his vision for the movie version of the Japanese manga. Watch the trailer below and please leave your comments, especially if you're familiar with the earlier versions....

‘Godzilla vs. Kong’: While Director Adam Wingard Is Hollywood’s Gain, Indie Film Loses a Talent
On the surface, Adam Wingard and “Godzilla vs. Kong” are a match made in heaven. The indie horror veteran has been working toward directing a summer blockbuster for the past decade, gradually taking on bigger and bigger budgets, and on Tuesday, Wingard tweeted that he’s “disgustingly invested in these monsters.”

But it’s hard to imagine that Wingard is using his skills to the best of his ability by joining Legendary Entertainment’s MonsterVerse. By keeping his feet firmly planted in the disciplined world of micro-budget filmmaking, Wingard has been forced to come up with inventive approaches to genre films that catch audiences by surprise. His first collaboration with screenwriter Simon Barrett, 2010’s “A Horrible Way to Die,” combined the subject matter of horror with the strong characters and an intentionally meandering plot

After years of making a name for himself as a respected director of low-budget thrillers, filmmaker Adam Wingard will be tackling two iconic monsters next. The filmmaker has come aboard to helm Warner Bros. and Legendary's highly-anticipated monster battle Godzilla vs. Kong, which will bring together the studios' Godzilla and King Kong franchises.

Interview: Simon Barrett talks Blair Witch backlash, the challenges of writing a sequel and more

Luke Owen gets on the phone with writer Simon Barrett

Last year I spoke with Adam Wingard just a couple of months after his project The Woods had been revealed as a sequel to 1999’s The Blair Witch Project and a few weeks before the film was released [read that interview here]. At the time Wingard was very excited about Blair Witch, even noting that it was the first film he’d directed that looked to make a lot of money at the box office. However some reviews were pretty unkind (although we rather liked it) and Blair Witch didn’t light up the box office as expected. Now it’s out on Blu-Ray and DVD in both the Us and the UK, I spoke with the film’s writer Simon Barrett about the reaction the film received, and about where the idea of keeping it a secret came from.
