Trailer For an Old West Horror Thriller Called The Wind

If you're a fan of westerns and a fan of the horror film genre, I've got a trailer her for a movie that you don't want to miss. It's called The Wind and it looks like a great old west thriller that I know I'd enjoy. I love this kind of stuff!

The film was directed by Emma Tammi and is set in the western frontier in the late 1800’s. A woman moves to the American frontier to settle it with her husband, but an evil presence soon makes itself known and infects her with paranoia. Here's the full synopsis:

With The Wind, director Emma Tammi and writer Teresa Sutherland have embarked on a nightmarish yet empathetic exploration of domestic solitude, skilfully conjuring — in bone-chilling visual and sonic strokes — an indescribable spectre that seems to emanate from the abysses of the night itself.Unravelling across a series of flashbacks that

Interview: Javier Botet Talks Getting into Character for Mara, Finding Freedom on Two Pigeons, and More

  • DailyDead
Arriving in theaters and on VOD this Friday is Clive Tonge’s Mara, a supernatural thriller centered on a paranormal entity of the same name who strikes her victims by utilizing sleep paralysis as a weapon.

Daily Dead recently spoke with Botet about his creative process on Mara, how he approaches collaborating with filmmakers on bringing their visions to life, and he even discussed the freedom he experienced recently on Two Pigeons (aka Freehold), in which he plays a stowaway living inside a guy’s apartment and takes full advantage of his stealthy status, as the makeup-free experience allowed him to really let loose.

So great to speak with you, Javier. In terms of Mara, and maybe this applies to other movies as well, but when you're coming on to do a character like this, what is your process as an actor? Do you work out the physicality before the makeup process,

Q&A: Writer/Director Mathieu Turi on Blending Genres and Working with Javier Botet for Hostile

  • DailyDead
Stranded in a car wreck in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, Juliette (Brittany Ashworth) has to fend off a strange creature who isn't interested in giving her a hand in Hostile. With the new horror movie out now on VOD platforms and DVD from 4Digital Media, we caught up with writer/director Mathieu Turi to discuss combining genres, the influence of Richard Matheson's I Am Legend, and working with Javier Botet.

Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Mathieu. How and when did you first come up with the idea for Hostile?

Mathieu Turi: I previously did two short films, Sons of Chaos (2010), a post-apocalyptic/action/creature short which received official selection in multiple film festivals around the world and officially competed at Sitges in 2011. The second film, Broken (2012), is a love story/drama set in an elevator. So, in a way, Hostile is a mix of the two short films.

10 Best Horror Movies of 2018 You've Already Missed

10 Best Horror Movies of 2018 You've Already Missed
We're barely past the midpoint and it's already been a great year for horror movies. A Quiet Place pleased critics and genre aficionados in droves, Hereditary left audiences shocked and gasping, Upgrade delivered unprecedented ultraviolence, and Annihilation found an unlikely yet enthralling intersect between fantasy and body horror. We've also seen solid sequels in Insidious: The Last Key, The First Purge, and Hellraiser: Judgment. And the best may be yet to come, with The Nun, The Predator, and Halloween all coming down the pike when it comes to 2018 horror Movies.

Sure, there have been some disappointments as well but there've also been some incredible genre offerings that have fallen through the cracks. If you're one of those cinephiles who complains there's nothing new or original horror movies being produced these days, you simply aren't looking hard enough.

But hey, that's what I'm here for: To separate the wheat from the

'Jurassic World' comfortably holds off 'Hereditary' at UK box office

Horror film Hereditary opens with £1.9m.

Today’s Gbp to Usd conversion rate - 1.32

Universal

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom added £7.2m in its second weekend, a drop of 32%, to move it to £25.6m to date.

Entertainment Film Distributors

Young YouTube Viewers Subjected To Graphic Pre-Rolls For ‘Insidious’ Horror Film

A handful of young YouTube viewers received a terrifying scare six months ago when graphic ads for a horror film ran before innocuous-seeming clips.

Two ads for Sony Pictures' Insidious: The Last Key -- one of which featured a humanoid creature probing the throat of a distressed young woman with claw-like fingers -- ran before a Frozen music video, an instructional Lego-building clip, a scene from the cartoon Pj Masks, and two Minecraft videos. The issue came to light after three parents contacted the U.K.’s Advertising Standards Authority (Asa), a regulatory council, which has upheld the complaints, per the BBC.

In addition to the three children, two adults also filed complaints to the Asa about the distressing ads.

Leigh Whannell May Not Return To Write Insidious 5

After the release of Insidious: The Last Key, the future of the franchise might be uncertain. Mainly because its co-creator, Leigh Whannell, hasn’t written Insidious 5 yet and might not write it at all.

When asked about why he may not move forward in a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, here’s what he said:

“I’m not sure if I’m going to be involved in all honesty. I love the films and franchise and it’s been a good experience, but the question is always do I have anything to offer. Maybe a fresh set of eyes is the best thing for this franchise if they’re going to continue it. So we’ll see.”

While this announcement may make loyal fans disappointed, there is plenty of logic to Whannell’s decision. The storyline involving Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne’s characters is finished, as the writer himself has said.

Blu-ray Review – Insidious: The Last Key (2018)

Insidious: The Last Key, 2018.

Directed by Adam Robitel.

Starring Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson, Bruce Davison, Spencer Locke, Josh Stewart, Caitlin Gerard, and Ava Kolker.

Synopsis:

Parapsychologist Elise Rainier if forced to confront her past when she is called back to the house where she grew up to take on the ghosts that still reside there.

This is starting to get a bit confusing now as not only was James Wan responsible for the hugely successful The Conjuring franchise and its ever-increasing offshoots but before that he was responsible for kickstarting the Insidious series which, some may argue, is a more tempting well to keep drawing from than the semi-fictional exploits of Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, four films in, Wan is no longer directing and the timeline has gone to pot, with 2015’s Insidious: Chapter 3 acting as a prequel to the first two movies and now Insidious: The Last Key

  • Variety
After two weeks at No. 1, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” finally ceded the top spot on the national home video sales charts to a new release from 20th Century Fox.

No. 3 on both the overall and Blu-ray disc sales charts was Sony Pictures’ successful “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.”

The No. 4 spot on the two sales charts went to two different new releases. On the overall disc chart, season three
