M. Night Shyamalan has partnered with Blumhouse for his new film, The Visit, and the first poster is appearing in theaters around the country, and at CinemaCon. In fact, the film’s trailer played with some showings of Unfriended this past weekend, but that hasn’t gone online yet. Expect to see that later this week, on Thursday, but for now we can look at the poster design for the low-budget horror film. We know the film features two siblings whose visit to their grandparents’ farm gets weird, and this poster suggests some bad stuff happening in the house at night. Read More »

In a summer movie season positive jam-packed with sequels, reboots, and spinoffs, it’s kind of refreshing to hear about a wide release that’s none of those things. Heck, The Gallows doesn’t even have a big-name director or a star-studded cast to attract attention.
What it does have is Blumhouse Productions, the powerhouse behind some of the biggest horror hits of the past several years including Insidious, Paranormal Activity, and Sinister. Watch The Gallows teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »

It was just yesterday afternoon that we learned that Ryan Gosling is in talks to star in Guillermo del Toro‘s long-in-development big screen adaptation of Walt Disney’s classic theme park ride The Haunted Mansion. When del Toro announced the film at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con International, he revealed that the Hatbox Ghost would be a pivotal character in his adaptation. The hatbox ghost is a Disneyland legend, a character that appeared originally in the attraction but mysteriously disappeared shortly after the attraction’s debut. Good news for Disneyland fanatics like me, the Mouse House have confirmed rumors that they will be bringing the Disneyland Hatbox Ghost back to his home starting in May, seemingly as part of the theme park’s 60th anniversary diamond celebration.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
The Human Centipede returns, and it is still ridiculous, and still pretty disgusting. Tom Six‘s latest film, which he has said “will have a lot of self-mockery and will be the most darkly comical” of the series, also looks cheaper and somehow even nastier than the rest of the films.
This time the setting is a prison, where an overbearing warden (Dieter Laser, returning to the fold) literally gets prisoners in line by, well, you know the drill by now. You can see the Human Centipede 3 trailer below, if that’s what you’re into — it’s technically a red-band trailer, thanks to a bunch of shots of writhing prisoners. Read More »
The demon Bughuul continues to menace families in Sinister 2, which sees the return of original writers Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill and features a new director, Ciaran Foy (Citadel) after Derrickson went over to Marvel to make Doctor Strange. There’s also a new cast, including Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, and Robert and Dartanian Sloan, playing characters caught in a nightmare of film footage and the evil it depicts.

This news answers a question that has been raised many times over the years: will there be some sort of remake or reboot of Gremlins? We’d heard just months ago that a reboot was probably dead, but things change. Now the answer to that question is “yes,” and Warner Bros. has just hired a new Gremlins remake writer. Carl Ellsworth (Goosebumps) will script the new take on the story of rapidly-multiplying little green monsters. Read More »
The name Gore Verbinski has complicated connotations. For a while, it inspired excitement in film fans. Now, that excitement cooled considerably, thanks in part to the director’s multiple years making bad, big-budget Disney movies. He’s trying to reclaim his name, though, and just took a significant step towards doing so.
Verbinski has committed to making a supernatural horror film called A Cure For Wellness, which follows a man who travels into the Swiss Alps to find his boss, only to be trapped in a mental institution. Dane DeHaan will play that main character and actress Mia Goth is in talks as well. The film will be written by Justin Haythe, who did The Lone Ranger with Verbinski but also wrote Sam Mendes’ underrated Revolutionary Road. Read more about A Cure for Wellness below. Read More »
