pride-and-prejudice-and-zombies-1

After years of on-again, off-again development, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finally went in front of cameras last month. And today, we have our first look at some of the results.

Directed by Burr Steers and adapted from the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies adds an undead spin to the Jane Austen classic. Lily James and Bella Heathcote star. See the first Pride and Prejudice and Zombies image after the jump.

UPDATE: We’ve included a better version of the image.

MTV Gives Series Order to ‘Scream’

MTV scream series

Teen Wolf has guaranteed company in the film-to-TV crowd on MTV. The cable company has given a series order to Scream, the show based on Wes Craven’s defining horror series. We’ve heard, however, that the show at this point won’t feature Ghostface, the recognizable masked killer who made his on-screen debut in the original 1996 film. (The Ghostface mask was actually an existing creation, owned by the company FunWorld.) But that doesn’t mean there won’t be another killer on the loose. After all, there’s no Scream without a killer.

What We Do in the Shadows opening

Written and directed by Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, What We Do in the Shadows is a funny mock documentary that exposes the nighttime world of New Zealand’s vampire underworld. Though in fact, the scene is more like a dysfunctional flat than an “underworld,” even though the flatmates are all, technically, monsters. As monsters go, some of them seem pretty OK. Now, just a few weeks before the film opens in the UK, we’ve got the first six minute of the comedy for your enjoyment. Watch the What We Do in the Shadows opening below.

Jordan Peele

For the past three years, Jordan Peele has succeeded in making us laugh as one-half of Comedy Central’s Key and Peele. Now he wants to make us scream.

Peele is set to write and direct a horror film called Get Out. While this will be his first attempt at straight-faced horror, it’s not that crazy a leap. His many horror-influenced sketches on Key and Peele have demonstrated that he his way around the look, feel, and traditions of the genre. Hit the jump for more on the Jordan Peele horror movie.

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night trailer

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a stylish and moody feature debut from very promising writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour. In this film, Amirpour combines a hearty set of influences — Iranian culture, Westerns, rock and roll films, and horror icons — to create a unique take on the vampire genre. It’s a sultry and compelling film, with all the energy of the late ’80s and early ’90s independent scene but a personality that isn’t quite like any of the influences it draws from. I can’t wait to see what Amirpour does next; in the meantime I’m ready to see this one again. Check out the new A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night trailer below.

Late Phases trailer

I’m a sucker for a werewolf film, and Late Phases may have just enough of a unique spin to set it apart from the plentiful collection of not-so-good werewolf movies we’ve seen over the years. In the film directed by Adrian Garcia Bogliano (Here Comes the Devil, Penumbra) from a script by Eric Stolze (no, not Eric Stoltz) a blind veteran (played by Nick Damici of Stake Land) movies to a retirement community. There, he runs across a werewolf — as you might expect, right? From there, the movie turns into a battle of blind soldier versus werewolf, and that’s pretty much all I need to know. Watch the Late Phases trailer below. Read More »

rodney ascher songs from the second floor

The ABCs of Death 2 gives twenty-six directors (or, in some cases, directorial teams) the chance to explore whatever mean, violent, strange ideas they want. Each is anchored only with a letter, a small budget, and a running time of just a few minutes. One director is Rodney Ascher, who made Room 237, and is now making a film about sleep paralysis.

We have an interview coming with Ascher where he talks about his work on the anthology film, but for now we’re going to give him room to talk about one of his favorite death scenes. What’s better is that he has chosen a movie I expect most people haven’t seen: the relatively obscure Songs From the Second FloorRead More »
