While you might be hard-pressed to find anyone whose favorite movie comes from the Resident Evil film franchise, it’s hard to argue with the success of a film series that was somehow able to last six installments despite always getting middling to terrible reviews. The loyal fanbase kept throwing enough money at each movie to make them profitable, and that’s all Screen Gems really cared about. But when the Resident Evil reboot comes along, it will finally bring what fans loved about the original games. Read More »
Summer is the perfect time for killer shark movies, and after the low-budget 47 Meters Down surprised Hollywood in 2017 by earning seven times its budget at the box office, a sequel is about to swim into theaters – and it has a new title.
Initially reported to be called 48 Meters Down, a trailer was released last August that referred to this film as 47 Meters Down: The Next Chapter. Now it’s apparently settled on 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. But whatever the title, this film looks claustrophobic, scary, and seems to include just about everything we want in a fun little shark horror movie. Read More »
Update: In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, James Wan reveals that he is no longer producing this film. “I’m not doing that anymore. That has been dropped,” Wan confirmed. “I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things.” Our original article follows.
Last year, we wrote about how James Wan (Aquaman, The Conjuring) would be producing a Resident Evil reboot, revamping the popular video game franchise on the big screen after Paul W.S. Anderson’s long-running series of films finally came to an end. Now it seems the reboot has found its director: Johannes Roberts, the man who helmed 47 Meters Down.

47 meters apparently wasn’t quite deep enough. After the shark attack thriller 47 Meters Down surprised Hollywood earlier this summer, a sequel, naturally titled 48 Meters Down, is now officially in the works with the director of the original coming back for more shark attack action. Read More »
The Strangers grossed $82 million worldwide on a budget of $9 million. It’s an effective horror movie that benefits greatly from Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman‘s performances. After its huge success at the box-office, it only took nine years for the sequel to happen, which was a delay caused by problems at Relativity.
One of the stars of Mad Men, Lost River, and the next Brian De Palma film, Christina Hendricks, is the sequel’s lead. Below, learn more about The Strangers 2 cast.

The VOD market and SyFy channel are full of riffs and ripoffs of Steven Spielberg’s seminal 1975 film Jaws, but seeing shark attack movies on the big screen has become a rarity in recent years. I’m not sure why that is since the concept of being in the ocean with killer sharks closing in seems like one that will always be relevant. But maybe they’re making a comeback.
A year after the Blake Lively vehicle The Shallows hit theaters, a new shark attack film is on the way. It’s called 47 Meters Deep, and it’s coming just in time to make you think twice about going in the water during your summer beach vacation. Watch the 47 Meters Deep trailer below.

Just when you thought they were done announcing new adaptations of Stephen King stories, a few more drop out of the sky. Earlier today, we learned that The Dark Tower IV: Wizard and Glass would be adapted as a television companion to the first The Dark Tower movie arriving next year. And now, King’s Hearts in Atlantis is coming to the big screen. Again. Sort of. In terms of titles, this is going to be one of the trickier King adaptions to explain.

Sarah Wayne Callies has plenty of experience avoiding the walking dead, but her new film sends her running from dead people of a more spiritual sort. In The Other Side of the Door, she plays a mother who has lost her son in a tragic accident. In grieving desperation, she turns to a supernatural ritual that will allow her to speak to her son through a portal located in an ancient temple.
The only catch? She’s not to open that door, no matter what happens. Of course, that’s exactly what she does, and now the balance between life and death is all topsy-turvy. Watch The Other Side of the Door trailer after the jump. Read More »

The trailers for Storage 24 get better each time. The one released earlier this month was a vast improvement over the generic-looking one we got this summer, and now a red-band version has come along to further up the ante through the power of blood and gore.
The Brit horror flick centers around four attractive young people (Noel Clarke, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Colin O’Donoghue, and Laura Haddock) stuck in a storage facility when a military plane crash wreaks havoc on the city’s systems. What starts as a minor annoyance becomes a life-or-death situation, however, when they realize that a nasty alien creature is trapped inside with them. Watch the NSFW trailer after the jump.
