As a format, VHS is dead, but as a horror movie franchise, V/H/S is doing very well. For the third year in a row, we’re getting one of these found-footage anthologies, with another new crop of filmmakers. And it looks every bit as nutty, creepy, gross, and bizarre as the earlier installments did. Check out the new V/H/S: Viral red-band (i.e., NSFW) trailer after the jump.

The second film in the V/H/S series really upped the ante with energy and pure visceral insanity, and now you can get your first taste of the third movie. V/H/S: VIRAL features segments from directors Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, Extraterrestrial), Marcel Sarmiento (ABCs of Death segment “D is for Dogfight”), Gregg Bishop (The Birds of Anger), Justin Benson (Wrecked) and Todd Lincoln (The Apparition).
This first international trailer recaps the series, and then launches into a prolonged blast of horror images from the new movie. You won’t know anything about story here — there’s barely even a sense of the framing segments — but there’s a lot that will make horror fans want to see the film. (And the official synopsis, which we’ve included after the break, does have story info.) Check out the V/H/S: VIRAL international trailer below. Read More »

Late August usually brings a bunch of studio horror movies and 2012 is no exception. A trailer has just arrived for one of them, The Apparition, starring Ashley Greene (Twilight), Tom Felton (Harry Potter) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger).
The film is about a group of people who set out to test the theory that ghosts and goblins only exist because people believe in them. Turns out, they were right, and they unleash something that feeds off your fear. Seems to be a little bit Nightmare on Elm Street, a little bit Paranormal Activity and a little bit The Ring. Todd Lincoln‘s The Apparition opens August 24. Check out the trailer and poster for the film after the jump. Read More »
Non-superhero Comic Bits: ‘Lions, Tigers and Bears’ Gets Writers, ‘The Nye Incidents’ Back on Track, ‘Penny Arcade’ Strip Optioned
Posted on Wednesday, June 8th, 2011 by Angie Han
Way back in 2009, we reported on a couple of comic book adaptations in development: Lions, Tigers and Bears, about a boy whose stuffed animals come to life; and The Nye Incidents, based on a Devil’s Due comic about an alien abductee serial killer. Neither project got much farther than the early stages, however, and we eventually forgot about them altogether. (Or at least I did. Maybe you didn’t. I don’t know your life.)
Now, news comes that both projects are back on track again. Get updates on both, plus info on a potential Penny Arcade-inspired film, after the jump.

Two films got release dates today: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas and Seth MacFarlane‘s directorial debut Ted both have spots on the calendar. But there’s a price (of sorts) as the Ashley Greene thriller The Apparition has been bumped from a fall date back to 2012. Details on all three after the break. Read More »

Warner Bros, Walt Disney Pictures and 20th Century Fox have announced new release dates for a sixteen films to be released over the next three years. We have information and dates for all of the films, after the jump.
In May we told you that Todd Lincoln had signed on to will write and direct The Apparition for Joel Silver’s genre label Dark Castle Entertainment. But at the time, details about the project were being kept under wraps. The only thing we knew was that the story is said to be based on true events and involve a haunted house. The project is picking up steam now that Twilight star Ashley Greene is in talks to star, and Variety has some new detail… Apparently the story “centers on a young couple haunted by a supernatural presence unleashed during a college experiment.” And the project is being fast tracked, and will go into production in February 2010.
Lincoln’s short films Honey Pot and Xavier played to acclaim at film festicals, gaining the attention of a Los Angeles commercial and music video production company called Public Works. He has been directing commercials, music videos, and developing a potential feature film debut ever since. Lincoln had been attached to a remake of The Fly for Fox, and has since been developing a live-action adaptation of Hack/Slash for Rogue Pictures, and more recently became attached to an adaptation of Devil Due’s alien thriller graphic novel The Nye Incidents, also for Dark Castle.
I haven’t seen much of Lincoln’s work, as his short films aren’t available online. But I really dug his music video for Lucky Pool’s Judy and Mary. Check it out, embedded after the jump.
