The Grudge has been around for a good while. It’s nearly at the fifteen-year anniversary mark. (If you count the very first short installment, actually, we’ve passed that milestone.) So now it’s evidently time to reboot The Grudge in the US.
Well before producers Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert recruited Takashi Shimizu to direct the first American Grudge installment, there were four in Japan. Shimizu directed all: two Ju-on films for television and two theatrical versions. (The first theatrical one was loosely remade as the first US film.)
Then there are additional sequels, a video game, and novel and manga adaptations. There are the two American films, also directed by Shimizu, and a little-seen third US film released in 2009. The series remains popular, so naturally efforts are now afoot to re-do the series for American audiences.

The setting for American Horror Story Season 4 has finally been revealed. According to writer and co-executive producer Douglas Petrie, the next season of the spooky FX series will be set at a carnival. Which seems kind of perfect. Carnivals, like covens, asylums, and murder houses, hardly need any help at all in looking creepy as hell.
Hit the jump to see what Petrie had to say about it, and to get the rundown on exactly what we know so far about the new season.

There is a movie called Pro Wrestlers vs Zombies. At this very instant, you either know exactly what that movie is and want to see it, or are rolling your eyes at the absolute, utterly insane absurdity of the idea. And still want to see it.
Written and directed by Cody Knotts, Pro Wrestlers vs. Zombies stars “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, “The Franchise” Shane Douglas, Olympic Gold Medalist Kurt Angle and Matt Hardy as a group of wrestlers booked for an event at an abandoned prison. But guess what? The prison isn’t abandoned and I bet you can’t guess who the new inmates are. Yup, zombies!
The trailer for this wacky film is now online and it totally lives up (or down, depending on your point of view) to your expectations. Check it out below. Read More »
A second trailer for the Hammer Films horror film The Quiet Ones is now online. The film is based on a true story of a university professor (Jared Harris) who recruited some students (such as Sam Claflin) to help him conduct a series of experiments on a young girl (Olivia Cooke) who is possessed by a demon. Directed and co-written by John Pogue, The Quiet Ones is scheduled for release April 25.
Compared to the first Quiet Ones trailer, this one is shorter, punchier and incredibly effective. Check it out below. Read More »
The SXSW film festival has been ramping up its Midnight programming over the past few years, to the point where each new iteration of the fest sees the debut of at least one or two very worthy genre entries.
Two of the Midnight films this year are 13 Sins and Starry Eyes, and short, violent and intense trailers are available for each. (That’s an excerpt of the spectacular Starry Eyes poster above; see the full image below.) Read More »
Scott Derrickson last brought us the film Sinister, which put Ethan Hawke into the psyche of an increasingly messed-up writer. Now here’s the Deliver Us From Evil trailer, which marks the debut of Derrickson’s new horror, and features Eric Bana and Edgar Ramírez as an unlikely cop-priest duo who deal with demonic possession.
This is a pretty unusual trailer. It begins in typical fashion with a lot of quick cuts and some ominous images tied together with dialogue voiceover. But then it settles down into basically one sequence. The trailer takes its time. We’ve seen a few other horror films do something like this (The Conjuring comes to mind) but this is still stands as an atypical trailer. And this one ends with a real Twin Peaks-worthy moment that worked for me. Read More »

Last December, Juan Antonio Bayona booked his highest-profile gig yet: the sequel to World War Z. But before he gets around to directing zombies, he’ll first be reckoning with tree monsters.
The Spanish filmmaker has signed on to direct A Monster Calls, a Black List script written by Patrick Ness based on his own acclaimed novel. The premise suggests a potent combination of fantasy, horror, and drama a la Pan’s Labyrinth — and what do you know, Pan’s Labyrinth producer Belen Atienza is on board as well. Hit the jump for plot details and more.
