Don't fear the reaper by Jennie Kermode

Gothic Harvest

Ashley Hamilton’s Gothic Harvest, a New Orleans-based tale of ancient family curses and young women learning the hard way that they should be wary of talking to strangers, is likely to be noticed by horror fans due to the presence of Lin Shaye. Much admired for her work in the Insidious franchise and, more recently, The Final Wish (which she and I spoke about in January), she’s always looking for interesting new characters to explore. We discussed Gothic Harvest last month, on Friday the 13th with a full moon in the sky. She told me she’d been waiting for a parcel for months and had been told it would be delivered that day “of all days,” so she was convinced that these omens meant something would go wrong.

“I’m superstitious in a good way, I think,” she says, laughing, as we begin. “All roads lead to good.

The official trailer for Ambition dropped today. From the producers of Nightmare on Elm Street, Ambition is a suspenseful thriller that creates a world where desire and revenge converge into a questionable reality.

Blood Craft Trailer Wreaks Witches' Revenge

Tony Sokol Mar 8, 2019

Blood Craft trailer shows you don't get away from a witch's revenge just because you're dead.

Vertical Entertainment, which released the John Travolta starring gangster biopic Gotti, is taking a whack at witches in the occult vendetta film Blood Craft. They dropped the trailer in a fit of wrath. It is a revenge film with dark magic at the center.

Official Trailer for True Story Drama 'Walk. Ride. Rodeo.' from Netflix

"Rodeo isn't something I 'do', it's really – it's who I am." Netflix has debuted the first official trailer for an inspirational indie drama titled Walk. Ride. Rodeo., based on a true story about a young barrel racer who keeps racing despite a bad accident. The film tells the incredible true story of Amberley Snyder, a nationally ranked rodeo barrel racer who defies the odds after barely surviving a car accident that leaves her paralyzed from the waist down. Spencer Locke stars Amberley, with a full cast including Missi Pyle, Bailey Chase, Sherri Shepherd, Max Ehrich, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Raleigh Cain, and Barbara Alyn Woods. This is another one of these extra cheesy tearjerkers, with all the cliche lines of dialogue about overcoming anything and chasing your dreams. Here's the first official trailer for Conor Allyn's Walk. Ride. Rodeo., direct from Netflix's YouTube: The incredible true

Meet Melissa Bolona, the New Scream Queen: I Love 'Dark' Roles

Meet Melissa Bolona, the New Scream Queen: I Love 'Dark' Roles
Melissa Bolona isn’t exactly like most actresses with a flourishing movie career.

The New Jersey-native, whose father is Peruvian and mother is American, says she’d always entertained the idea of acting for a living but never thought it was one of those things that could actually happen.

“I have no family in the industry,” says Bolona, 29. “I never thought of it as a viable option. School was always a priority in my family.”

In fact, it wasn’t until she was studying business abroad in Paris—she graduated from Pace university with a degree in International Marketing—that

Wish you were here by Jennie Kermode

Lin Shaye in The Final Wish

If you’re read much folklore, you’ll be aware that the granting of wishes often comes with a price attached. When Aaron (Michael Welch) returns to his family home after the death of his antique collector father, he discovers an item with a sinister past and is surprised at the sudden improvements that seem to take place in his fortunes, but it’s all too quickly evident to viewers that something sinister is afoot. Central to the film, and responsible for much of its emotional impact, is the presence of Lin Shaye as Kate, the mother he has been out of touch with for some years. Ever since her unforgettable turn in Insidious in 2010, Lin has been adored by horror fans, but her involvement with the genre goes back decades before that and she has a great deal of other impressive work to her name,

Lin Shaye Terrifies in Exclusive The Final Wish Clip

Daniel Kurland Jan 14, 2019

Horror icon Lin Shaye stars in a new horror film from the creator of Final Destination, and we’ve got an exclusive look!

It’s always exciting when a horror film can think up a truly unique premise to draw its scares from—though we just as easily love when reliable staples from the genre are reconfigured to popular (and often gruesome) delight. Yet the ideal situation is when the best of both worlds can blend like so much blood and terror, and an old fashioned idea can be spun off in a radically new and exciting direction. That’s exactly what appears to be happening in the upcoming The Final Wish.

The Final Wish taps into that karmic retribution horror that makes the simple monkey's paw archetype still so effective. When Aaron Hammond (Michael Welch) returns home to help his mother (Lin Shaye) after the death of his father,

Tony Todd Explains Why There Will Probably Never Be A Final Destination 6

Over the course of his acting career, Tony Todd has continued to find work in the horror genre, but aside from his lead turn in the Candyman movies, Final Destination may still be the one series that the actor is best known for, with Todd assuming the role of mortician William Bludworth in three of the franchise’s five installments.

But while the property has found consistent commercial success with its series of mundane yet elaborate death scenes, Todd feels that the Final Destination films may have reached their final destination, telling Bloody Disgusting that it’s simply an issue of profit.

“I am [surprised] but I know why there hasn’t been [another sequel],” Todd said. “It’s really an expensive film to shoot. Just getting whatever accident set pieces, like for example part two with the whole traffic accident, that took a good five weeks to shoot and at least 20 million bucks.

Daily Dead’s 2019 Winter Horror Preview

  • DailyDead
Happy almost 2019, dear readers! The holiday season is nearly over, but rather than let that get you down, why not indulge in some great horror movies coming our way over the next few months? Usually, the winter season of genre releases can be something of a mixed bag in terms of quality, but there some impressive projects coming out in the next few months that have me extremely excited as a horror fan. The two films that are my most anticipated are (of course) Us from Jordan Peele and Christopher Landon’s sequel Happy Death Day 2U, but I’m also very intrigued by what I’ve seen from films like Greta, Glass, Braid, Captive State, and Escape Room so far, and am really looking forward to seeing how those stories come together onscreen as well.

We also have a new sci-fi movie featuring Keanu Reeves getting released in the coming months,
