Anthology shows like American Horror Story and True Detective are gaining ground, thanks in no small part to the success of those two series. (Well, we’ll wait to see how successful the second season of True Detective ends up being, but it is definitely a series that has people talking.)
Now Syfy is getting into the anthology horror game with a series called Channel Zero, from creators Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Friday The 13th) and Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra). The first season is born out of internet horror, basically making for a creepypasta TV series; get more details after the break. Read More »

In Eli Roth‘s film The Green Inferno, well-meaning activist kids go to the Amazon with hopes of stopping deforestation. But the leaders of this group aren’t quite as upstanding as they first appear to be, but that’s only one of the problems facing the kids. Disaster strikes, leaving the group stranded in the Amazon, where they find themselves in a plot right out of a ’70s cannibal exploitation thriller.
The film was held in its own sort of hell for over a year, with distribution plans caught in legal wrangling between companies. Now Blumhouse and Universal will release the movie this fall under the BH Tilt banner, and a new Green Inferno trailer cut for that release is now available. There’s new footage here not seen in previous trailers cut for the old release plan, so check it out. Read More »

MTV has a fine line to walk with its Scream TV series. Recreate the original films too closely, and they’ll be accused of laziness; stray too far from them, and they’ll alienate purists. We’ll have to wait and see how the series fares as a whole, but as revealed in a new Scream clip, the first eight minutes try their best to put their own spin on one of the movies’ classic scenes.
Bella Thorne plays Nina, a rich, popular mean girl whose evening goes horribly awry in a way that’ll feel very familiar to fans of the first Scream. Watch the Scream TV series opening scene after the jump. Read More »

You read that right. This is, for now at least, the last Paranormal Activity film. “We made this movie like it’s the end of this Paranormal line for sure,” says Jason Blum. And that title promises quite a few revelations. Read More »
