In The Purge: Anarchy, which comes from the writer/director of the 2013 sleeper hit film, a young couple is stranded in the middle of a city when their car breaks down. But this breakdown happens at the worst possible time: just hours before the annual Purge begins. The Purge — that 12-hour period when all crime is legal, as outlined in the original film — is really not when you want to be out on the streets, unless you’re wearing a mask or some face paint and carrying a hefty weapon, and preferably have a gang of friends along with similar gear.
The teaser below some of the couple’s effort to survive, but it doesn’t tell us whether this sequel will be more satisfying in the end than the first film was. Read More »

Based on Sin Nombre and Jane Eyre, film fans knew director Cary Fukunaga was a talent. Unfortunately, not everyone saw those movies. That’s not the case with HBO’s True Detective, a show he’s both producing and directing. Huge audiences are watching that show and realizing this guy is one of the best young directors out there today.
As the show continues its run, Fukunaga is blowing up and discussion has started to turn towards his next film. He’s currently shooting a small film called Beasts of No Nation with Idris Elba. To follow that, producer Dan Lin says Fukunaga might finally get around to adapting Stephen King‘s IT. Read More »
“Imagine the end of Ghostbusters, but with the heroes failing and Gozer taking over the world.” That’s how writer Scott Chitwood describes his upcoming new comic book, Haunted. The story picks up 13 years after the barrier between the real and spiritual worlds collapses, and focuses on a young girl who might have the key to saving the world.
It’s a very cool concept, and months before the comic is set to be released, Bryan Singer‘s Bad Hat Harry productions has picked up the rights. Read More »
I’m not going to waste time setting this up — what we have here is a trailer for a movie in which people and animals are attacked by zombie beavers. The trailer is not safe for work, because zombie beavers. (And, ok, some language and blood and so on.) But watch the whole thing, because the last shot of this Zombeavers trailer is pretty great.

“Nobody but me can make a CLERKS film,” said Kevin Smith in a Reddit AMA Thursday. “But ANYONE can make a Krampus picture. So before anyone else does, I figured it’s time to keep moving forward: we’re gonna shoot COMES THE KRAMPUS in April, before CLERKS III.”
Comes the Krampus is a holiday horror anthology Smith announced a few weeks back. Different directors will each oversee segments of the film. The plan originally was to make it after Smith did Clerks III. That’s now changed, however, and Clerks III is on hold until Comes the Krampus is made. Read More »

Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies was once such a hot property, bidding for the movie rights began before the book even hit shelves. But it’s spent the past five years in development hell, shuffling from one high-profile movie star and director to another.
The last we heard of it was in May, when the David O. Russell-penned script landed with Burr Steers (Igby Goes Down) and Lily Collins (The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones). Progress has been pretty quiet since then, but the project is apparently far from dead — in fact, it’s nearing the start of production. More details after the jump.
