Brady Corbet, the brilliantly versatile actor who starred in Mysterious Skin and the Funny Games remake, is back and looking rough and nasty in Simon Killer, the new film from Martha Marcy May Marlene producer Antonio Campos.
These days, when every film features S&M sex scenes and lavishly choreographed 3D garrottings, it’s difficult to appreciate just how shocking the Hammer studio’s lurid output genuinely was back in the drab 1950s.
Following from last week's release of a new poster, FilmDistrict have released a new set of images from their horror remake Evil Dead.
Once upon a time, long, long ago, vampires were not the ideal boyfriends for brooding teenagers; they were the most chilling of all the movie monsters, and no other film seemed to capture their horror quite as well as Hammer studio’s 1958 release, Dracula. It’s one of the loosest adaptations of Bram Stoker’s famous novel, yet easily the most memorable. As this long-awaited Blu-ray release proves, it has also, like the man himself, defied the ravages of time. It still casts its disquieting spell, long after the others, particularly Bela Lugosi much-imitated 1931 incarnation, have come to appear faintly ridiculous to modern eyes.
Sony have released a new poster for their very promising looking remake of The Evil Dead, this time titled simply Evil Dead. Although merely a re-jigged version of a previous poster it's good to see more hype being built up.
Shane Acker, known for animated short 9 and the feature-length remake of the same name, will be bringing a Dark Horse pet-horror comic to the screen.
Ryan Murphy's American Horror Story has proved that television viewers worldwide enjoy a bit of a scare before bedtime. Following this new trend US Channel A&E is set to air Bates Motel, a series that explores the life of Norman Bates and his mother in the period before she became all skeletal and he killed everyone and as this, the first full trailer proves, it certainly looks quite promising.
The first teaser trailer for Bryan Fuller's (Pushing Daisies) new television series, Hannibal has been released by NBC.
The brand new trailer for Franck Khalfoun's Maniac sheds extra light on what looks like one of the year's darkest pictures.
Eli Roth's last feature film directorial effort was Hostel: Part II - the gorier sequel to his Hostel - and before that, in 2002, he debuted with Cabin Fever. He also produced The Last Exorcism and The Man With The Iron Fists, and most recently, he has spent his time working on his Goretorium show in Las Vegas.
In other words: This is one passionate horror fan.
Despite that, Roth is probably more widely known as the 'Bear-Jew' in friend Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds. However, he's got something bigger up his sleeve, based on one of the greatest and most horrifying of 70's B-movies, Cannibal Holocaust. His new film, The Green Inferno, will be his most ambitious and biggest piece yet.
