Dracula Untold

Universal Pictures is getting ready to reboot all of their Universal Monsters. The last film not part of this new era is Dracula Untold, a standalone blend of fact and fiction that becomes a pseudo-Dracula origin story. Luke Evans (Fast and Furious 6, The Hobbit) is Prince Vlad of Transylvania, a just ruler who leads a peaceful life with his family. That changes when his country is invaded by a seemingly unbeatable enemy, leading Vlad to make the ultimate sacrifice to save his people. Vlad himself was a real person and the inspiration for Dracula. Whether or not he actually became a vampire named Dracula is probably less true.

Directed by Gary Shore, Dracula Untold opens October 17. Check out the latest Dracula Untold trailer, this one from Japan, below. Read More »

Cub trailer

The Midnight Madness program at the Toronto Film Festival is one of the most reliable lineups of provocative genre movies each year — programmer Colin Geddes does a great job of choosing films that are memorable and full of new talent. Here’s the Cub trailer, which will be your first look at one of this year’s Midnight Madness titles.

Jonas Govaerts makes his debut as a director with the film, which tells the story of “a troupe of young Cub Scouts who find themselves stalked by a psychopathic huntsman who has riddled the forest with ingenious and deadly traps.” There’s some weird stuff and much bloody violence in this trailer. Oh, and the film boasts a score by Steve Moore, from the band Zombi, who also did music for Adam Wingard’s The Guest. You won’t hear the score here, but check out the trailer below. Read More »

American Horror Story Freak Show poster header

American Horror Story: Coven went off the rails somewhat, but the great thing about Ryan Murphy‘s FX anthology horror series is that each season is a fresh start. The next season, American Horror Story: Freak Show, will see many of the same cast and crew heading to 1950s Florida, where a “dark entity” emerges.

While Murphy isn’t as secretive as some of his fellow showrunners, he hasn’t said that much about where the new run of episodes might take us. So it’s exciting to get our first glimpse at the cast in costume, including Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Michael Chiklis, and so many more. See the new American Horror Story Freak Show poster and teasers after the jump.

Lionsgate is set to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the theatrical release of SAW by bringing the film back to theaters nationwide for a one-week run starting on Friday, October 31st with select screenings beginning Thursday night, October 30th. Complain all you want about the series of films that it spawned but the original is actually a pretty interesting indie film. (I first discovered it the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.) The director of the original film, James Wan, has gone on to create the Insidious franchise, as well as directing The Conjuring and the upcoming Fast & Furious 7. Read the full Saw 2014 rerelease press release after the jump.

Horns trailer header

This Halloween, audiences are going to have a chance to see Daniel Radcliffe become the devil. The fall holiday is when Alexandre Aja‘s latest film, Horns, hits theaters. Based on a book by Joe Hill (son of Stephen King), Horns tells the story of Ignatius (Radcliffe), a man accused of murdering his girlfriend. In his despair, Ig sprouts horns from his forehead. As the horns continue to grow, everyone in town spills their darkest secrets to Ig as he tries to solve the mystery of what actually happened.

From what we saw at Comic-Con, the film looks like a delicate balance of horror, humor and romance. Now, a new international trailer is out that plays more on that fact. Check out the latest Horns trailer below. Read More »

Exists (1)

1999′s The Blair Witch Project wasn’t the first film ever to utilize the found-footage format, but it definitely went a long way toward popularizing it. Since then we’ve had more found-footage horror movies can we can count, and it’s only very recently that the trend has shown any sign of slowing down.

All of which means that any film in the format released today is gonna have to work a bit harder to feel fresh. Even if it’s by the guy who helped make the subgenre what it is in the first place, Eduardo Sánchez. The Blair Witch director is back this fall with the found-footage Bigfoot movie Exists, and it feels, well, like a lot of other things that have copied Blair Witch in the past 15 years. Watch the Exists trailer after the jump.

Pyramid trailer

In December, Fox will release a found-footage horror film that looks basically like “Alien in a pyramid,” with a ravenous mummy standing in for the xenomorph. The film comes from producer Alexandre Aja (High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) and director Gregory Levasseur (who wrote those two films of Aja’s), and follows a group of archaeologists as the venture into a newly-discovered pyramid. While just a bit peeks out over the surface of the ground, the three-sided structure appears to be massive. The team soon discovers just how big it is — as they also find that it may have been constructed to keep something within its monolithic stone walls. Ashley Hinshaw, James Buckley, Denis O’Hare, Christa-Marie Nicola and Amir K. star; watch The Pyramid trailer below.  Read More »
