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 »

curse the darkness director

I really like what SpectreVision is doing. The label created by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller is backing and promoting a set of strange movies from the US and around the world. Their films so far include A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (review), Cooties (review), L.F.O. (review), Toad Road (trailer), and Open Windows (trailer). SpectreVision has been working on a picture that Elijah Wood has described as an “anthropological zombie film.” Now that film, Curse the Darkness, is set with financing and a director, to shoot this fall.

As Above So Below extended

What if the catacombs segment in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was the setup for a horror movie, rather than an adventure film set piece? Ben Feldman (Mad Men), Perdita Weeks (The Great Fire), and Edwin Hodge (The Purge: Anarchy) star in As Above So Below as a crew of budding urban archaeologists who seek a hidden truth in the catacombs beneath Paris.

They find something else: shadows of their past incarnated in visions that have the power to do more than just spook each kid. This As Above So Below extended red-band trailer features blood, fore, and plenty of weirdness as the crew finds what might be the gate to their own personal hell.

35 years after it scared away the Lutzes, 112 Ocean Avenue continues to welcome new residents in Amityville: The Awakening.

The Bringing Jeremy Lovering

The former Nicolas Winding Refn project The Bringing could be back on after all, just not with Nicolas Winding Refn.  Jeremy Lovering is reportedly in talks to direct the horror project, which is loosely based on the real-life case of Elisa Lam.

In 2013, the Canadian tourist was found dead in a water tank on the roof of Los Angeles’ Cecil Hotel — which so happens to be the same hotel known for housing serial killers Richard Ramirez and Jack Untwerger once upon a time, and for being a suicide hotspot in the ’50s and ’60s. Creepy. Hit the jump for more details.

Annabelle

The creepy doll Annabelle was only a small part of The Conjuring, but she sure made an impression. Enough so that New Line decided to give her her own spinoff.
