Is there a better time than Halloween season to unveil a trailer for a horror film? The studios apparently don’t think so, as we’ve seen several hit this week alone. Devil’s Due released its first promo yesterday, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones revealed a spot earlier today, and now comes Here Comes the Devil to try and make its own creepy mark.
Directed by Adrián García Bogliano, the thriller follows two kids (Michele Garcia and Alan Martinez) who go missing during a family trip to the caves of Tijuana. Though they eventually find their way back to their parents (Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro), it quickly becomes clear that something terrible has happened to them. Hit the jump to watch the NSFW red-band trailer.

The horror anthology The ABCs of Death, inspired in part by early kids’ books and bearing a real resemblance to Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies, is a who’s-who of current horror and genre stars and up and comers. The film will be divided into twenty-six segments in which a letter of the alphabet corresponds to a method of death. The segments will be short, but given that they’ll be directed by people like Nacho Vigalondo, Jason Eisener, Noburo Iguchi and many more, they might pack a punch.
Two more directors were added to the list today, bringing the total number of signees to twenty-five. Xavier Gens (Frontier(s), Hitman) and Christopher Smith (Severance, Triangle, Black Death) are now on the roster. Details of a contest to choose the final director are after the break. Read More »
The horror anthology is really coming back, and if things work out well Drafthouse Films, with Timpson Films and Magnet, might be right at the forefront of the mini-trend with a new project called The ABCs of Death. This is a massive anthology inspired by kids ABC books, in which twenty-five directors and one contest winner will each “be assigned a letter from the alphabet that represents a word to act as a springboard for a short. It will be up to each filmmaker to interpret, from accidental deaths to murders committed in cold blood.”
In other words, this might be a bit like Edward Gorey’s The Gashlycrumb Tinies. But with directors like Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Tokyo Gore Police) and Srdjan Spasojevic (A Serbian Film) making the shorts, it could get a lot crazier than that. The full director list and a cute teaser poster is after the break. Read More »
