There’s a little bit of new footage in this trailer for Ouija, the film that shows what happens when kids use that dangerous tool of the devil, the Ouija board, to contact dead friends. Some people use the board to craft weird and potentially embarrassing moments at parties, but the people in the film find themselves connected to some evil force that is hell-bent on their destruction. Which is like some parties, I guess. Check out the Ouija trailer below. Read More »

Universal only just put more energy into its efforts to adapt Anne Rice‘s vampire novels into films, as the studio renewed the option on 13 of Rice’s “Vampire Chronicles” books. The studio isn’t wasting any time getting moving on that option, as The Fault In Our Stars director Josh Boone is now in early talks to write and direct an adaptation of The Vampire Lestat, which was the centerpiece of Rice’s original trilogy of vampire novels.
The Vampire Lestat is a story very rooted in the ’80s, and we don’t know if this would be a period piece, or a modernized adaptation. If things come together, Boone would make this film after doing The Stand for Warner Bros.

The Babadook is a lean and mean horror film out of Australia, and this new Babadook trailer is just perfect. The film was one of the best at Sundance this year, and remains one of my favorites of the year so far.
The story centers on Amelia, a widowed mother, and her troubled young son Samuel. The kid is spinning out of control, and his mom is at her wits’ end. A strange storybook provides a focal point for Sam’s nightmarish hallucinations, and things get intense as Sam’s visions start to connect with Amelia’s own fears.
Essie Davis and Noah Wiseman are simply terrific in the two lead roles, and writer/director Jennifer Kent has cooked up a story that is shockingly scary and built on solid characters. Take the shocks out of this movie and you’d still have a great story. With them in, The Babadook is the must-see horror film of 2014. Watch the trailer below. Read More »
The horror started in 1974 with Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A few sequels later, that franchise faded, and in 2003 Platinum Dunes picked it up. They made two films, but the screams faded once more. In 2013 the franchise was resurrected one more time with Texas Chainsaw 3D. The film was a financial and critical disappointment, but producer Carl Mazzocone has the rights to make up to six films and he’s going to try another. A writer has just been hired to pen a Texas Chainsaw prequel called Leatherface. Read More »
