This Blumhouse Production started shooting almost three years ago. For unknown reasons, Brad Peyton‘s horror film Incarnate has been sitting on the shelf for a while. The WWE co-production is also Peyton’s first horror movie. He previously directed San Andreas, Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, and Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore, so this Aaron Eckhart-led exorcism movie is uncharted territory for the director. Now there’s a new Incarnate trailer you can watch below.

Director Ti West tries his hand at a new genre with
In a Valley of the Violence. The director of The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, and The Sacrament has made a Western with attitude and plenty of personality. The revenge tale stars Ethan Hawke as Paul, a dangerous and tortured loner seeking revenge. He’ll stop at nothing to get his hands on his dog’s killers, Gilly (James Ransone) and his gang.
Paul’s motivation couldn’t be cleaner or more to the point. In a Valley of Violence is a blast of simplicity. This isn’t a movie that wastes any time, as West’s story builds towards a bloody, darkly funny finale that puts John Travolta to great use as a hilariously sympathetic antagonist. West, who typically makes audiences squirm, has crafted his most crowd-pleasing film to date.
The writer-director recently spoke with us about Jeff Grace‘s score, Ethan Hawke and John Travolta’s performances, Neal Jonas‘ striking opening credits, and his love for opening title sequences. Below, read our Ti West interview.

Two years ago was when we first got some real details on Jordan Peele‘s Get Out. The Key and Peele star said he was interested in making a horror movie that “does jump off of racial fears” and “the fears of being a black man today.” With his directorial debut, Peele wanted a protagonist he doesn’t see in horror movies. The director has made a horror movie that explores race, but he’s also made a horror movie that looks wild, violent, a little funny, and with something to say.
Below, watch the Get Out trailer.

Ti West is changing things up with In a Valley of Violence. The writer/director behind The House of the Devil and The Innkeepers has made a western. The film, which we first heard about over two years ago, doesn’t blend horror and western tropes together; it’s just a pure, revenge-driven western. The film stars Ethan Hawke, James Ransone, Taissa Farmiga, John Travolta, and Karen Gillan.
Below, watch the In a Valley of Violence trailer.

UPDATE: Bloody Disgusting reports Oculus director Mike Flanagan is in talks to direct the Halloween remake. Nothing official has been revealed yet, but for now it sounds like he’s the man for the job. Not my first choice for the job, but Oculus is certainly an underrated horror flick, so this could be a good move. Our original story from late night on May 23rd follows.
Legends never die. After years of Dimension Films trying to figure out what to do with the Halloween franchise, the company lost the rights to the iconic horror series that started with John Carpenter‘s classic film. Out of nowhere a surprise announcement came from Blumhouse Productions revealing that they are teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween sequel. Before you get all bent out of shape about the franchise not knowing when to die, director John Carpenter will be on board the film as executive producer.

Blumhouse Picture has a notable track record of casting their horror projects right. They don’t always work out, but even just looking at that The Purge: Election Year trailer from the other day, the production company really struck gold in Frank Grillo. The actor was a big reason why The Purge sequel was a vast improvement over its predecessor. And for Blumhouse’s latest picture, The Darkness, who better to cast than Kevin Bacon to ground your supernatural horror movie?
Get a taste of what’s in store from Blumhouse this time with The Darkness trailer below.

The last time Eli Roth worked in television was for Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, which lasted for three seasons. The horror show wasn’t one of the streaming service’s critical darlings, and it didn’t seem to be much of a hit with its customers either. Maybe his next effort will be better. Roth, partnering with Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) and producer James Manos Jr. (Dexter), worked on another show premiering next month, South of Hell.
Watch the first South of Hell trailer after the jump.

It’s been a good year so far for M. Night Shyamalan, or at least a much better year than the last few.

And the film will likely star Joaquin Phoenix, who was one of the leads of Shyamalan’s 2002 film Signs, and the 2004 follow-up The Village. What little we know about the new Joaquin Phoenix M. Night Shyamalan project is below. Read More »
