The Conjuring writers producing remake of Russian film The Bride

I've been visiting friends in Brazil this month, and while looking at the local movie listings we noticed that a nearby theatre was showing a Russian horror movie that had slipped by me - a film with a title that translates to THE BRIDE . We didn't go to see THE BRIDE because I wouldn't get much out of seeing a movie in Russian with Portuguese subtitles, since I don't...

Claes Bang and Sylvia Hoeks menace The Girl in the Spider's Web

Director Fede Alvarez's THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB is both a film I'm looking forward to and one which I'm already disappointed with even before it starts filming. While I like the idea of the director of EVIL DEAD 2013 and DON'T BREATHE making a follow-up of sorts to THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO , I'm disappointed that Alvarez and Sony Pictures have...

Terminator sequel gets a new writer, might be set in Mexico

Cool Horror Videos: Dustin Mills' Don't Answer the Door

One of my favorite indie horror directors is Dustin Mills, an incredibly prolific filmmaker who is able to accomplish some awesome things on miniscule budgets. Not afraid of switching things up, he has made creature features, movies with puppet casts, giallo homage, and uniquely artistic projects. He can make family friendly fun, and he can deliver extreme brutality. If you like...

Universal to bring Riley Sager's novel Final Girls to the screen

"Riley Sager" is a pseudonym for an author who has published other works under their actual name, and while I'm not sure what sort of success the author has enjoyed under that other name, the first Riley Sager novel has turned out quite well for them. Published by Dutton in July, that first Sager novel was titled FINAL GIRLS and received praise from the likes of...

The Purge creator James DeMonaco to Take Back the Night

THE PURGE creator James DeMonaco, who wrote and directed the first three films in that franchise, isn't directing the upcoming PURGE prequel (although he is producing it and wrote the screenplay), and while director Gerard McMurray shepherds that project toward the big screen DeMonaco has been setting up a non-PURGE horror project. DeMonaco is attached to produce, with his...

Trailer: Brody, Banderas, Malkovich, and a killer dog in Bullet Head

Paul Solet showed a lot of promise with his feature directorial debut GRACE , the twisted story of an infant that prefers drinking blood over milk. I was surprised that it took six years for his second feature, the haunting tale DARK SUMMER , to come along, but that and the segment he directed for TALES OF HALLOWEEN helped give him the momentum to move on to his biggest project yet,...
