Canadian director Bruce McDonald has been making weird movies and TV shows for a long time; his 1991 film Highway 61 is a personal fave, as are the 1998 series Twitch City and the 2008 thriller Pontypool. His latest film is Hellions, in which a few people have probably their worst-ever Halloween night when demonic little trick-or-treaters show up on their doorstep. The Hellions trailer has some very odd Halloween sights; have a look below. Read More »

Films about people turning on each other after maybe getting victimized by spiritual forces are nothing new. But Robert Eggers‘ The Witch puts a fresh spin on the formula by moving the action to colonial New England, surrounded by superstition and wilderness.
Set decades before the Salem witch trials, The Witch follows a devout Christian family who come to New England to start a new life. However, they seem to be cursed at every turn — their crops fail, and their infant son goes missing. Fear and dread begin to plague the family, as they grow increasingly suspicious of one another. Watch The Witch trailer after the jump.

20th Century Fox has dropped the first trailer for Victor Frankenstein, starring James McAvoy as the mad doctor and Daniel Radcliffe as his faithful (and so far non-hunchbacked) protege Igor.
If you’ve seen really any version of the Mary Shelley classic, you know how it goes: Frankenstein engages in some crazy science and creates a literal monster, with predictably disastrous results. What’s different this time is a playful buddy comedy dynamic between Frankenstein and Igor, a la Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes movies. Watch the Victor Frankenstein trailer after the jump.

Sounding a bit like the It Follows story model applied in a different way to a zombie story, the comic series Tag, by Kieth Giffen and Kody Chamberlain, features a setup where a man is turned into a rotting fleshpile after a simple touch from another. But there’s an upshot, maybe: he can tag someone else to pass on the curse rather than decomposing.
Now the collected Tag story is being turned into a film, from Fox and John Leonetti, who directed The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle last year. Read More »
Summit has been developing a film called Exorcism Diaries for a couple years, originally recruiting Barbara Marshall to write back in 2013, with other writers tackling it in the meantime. The film was originally said to be based on a book that purports to chronicle the true stories behind the film The Exorcist, and while that may be just a good marketing angle from Summit, we’ll always take a good exorcism movie.
Now Exorcism Diaries has an even better chance to be good, as the two people who made Starry Eyes, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, have been brought on to rewrite and direct. Read More »
