James Wan, the director of Saw and Insidious, is bringing us his latest scare-fest with The Conjuring and we have the latest spooky trailer and poster to share with you.
The only thing America has to fear, is America itself.
Brian Trenchard-Smith is the David Lean of Ozploitation movies. His trademark: cheap, trashy, madcap tales presented with the deep polish and perfect sheen that you usually associate with high end heritage cinema. Dead End Drive-In (1986) is an excellent example. In the near future, society is on the brink of collapse and hoodlums prowl the streets. Clean-living minivan driver Jimmy (Ralph Macchio lookalike Ned Manning) borrows his brother's immaculate '56 Chevy in order to take his girlfriend Carmen (Natalie McCurry) to a drive-in movie theatre (which, by the way, happens to be showing another Trenchard-Smith classic, Turkey Shoot). Unfortunately, while they're canoodling on the backseat, two of the car's wheels are stolen... by the police. They thus find themselves having to stay there overnight – then indefinitely, as Thompson (Peter Whitford), the drive-in owner, reveals that there is no way of communicating with the outside world or of leaving on foot. “You're here until the government decides what to do with you” – them and the other 191 assorted teddy boys, punks and skinheads who have been caught out in the same way. Doling out blankets and meal tickets which can be redeemed at the on-site diner, he encourages them to settle in and make the best of it.
The Shining is a masterpiece, not only because of its immaculate handling of atmosphere and tension, but because it takes a simple haunted house story and makes something of such density and complexity that every viewer will walk away with a different interpretation. It has been 33 years and viewers still cannot agree on what the black & white photograph means in the final shot. The Shining is the kind of movie film debate was built on. It demands to be discussed, picked apart, argued over. Room 237 is about that need to discuss, to pick apart, to argue.
Zombieland TV spin poster plays on the film's iconic imagery, but it hints the series just won't match up to the horror-comedy classic.
Eli Roth's new series Hemlock Grove promises to be an eye-popping, bone-crunching, flesh-ripping horror, if this sneak peek is anything to go by. When I first caught a glimpse of gyspy-cum-werewolf Peter transforming into a beast, I felt like my own body was being torn apart. It's as gruesome and gory as the Hostel films and makes the grim transformation of American Werewolf in London look like a Disney movie.
After long delays, Lionsgate are ready to unleash their latest horror movie upon audiences with the critically acclaimed festival hit, You're Next.
After an underwhelming series of trailers, World War Z's marketing finally pulls out something impressive with these new teaser posters.
The marketing for World War Z feels surprisingly gun-shy, consistently side-stepping the central premise of the movie at every turn, never once using the word "zombie" and never offering a real look at a zombie. Instead we get scenes of crowds of people (incredibly rubbery looking people, thanks bad/unfinished fx) running like an avalanche of pasty flesh.
The latest trailer continues this trend, downplaying the undead/infected and playing it up as a globe-trotting thriller.
I hope you've locked your doors.
