How much does Sean Astin know about disgusting infectious diseases? A lot more now than he did a few years ago, probably.

A few years back, shortly before the release of his debut horror film The Pact, writer-director Nicholas McCarthy told EW, “I think hearing people scream is almost too addictive of a moment for me—I want to do it one more time.” Now, McCarthy is doing it one more time with At the Devil’s Door, another likely scream-inducing project which is released on VOD on August 8 and arrives in cinemas September 12.
Those familiar with James Wan’s supernatural tale The Conjuring—or the occult museum of real-life purported ghostbuster Lorraine Warren—will know about the allegedly haunted doll, Annabelle. Well, now the figurine o’ fright has been gifted her own movie, the Wan-produced origin story Annabelle, which arrives in cinemas October 3.
It might seem unfair to suggest the new horror movie Septic Man is going to stink, especially without having seen it—but the filmmakers probably won’t object on this occasion. Written by Tony Burgess (Pontypool) and directed by Jesse Thomas Cook (Monster Brawl) the movie stars Jason David Brown as a man who undergoes a hideous transformation after he is trapped in a septic tank.
John Carpenter was once among Hollywood’s most prolific filmmakers. But the man who brought us such genre classics as Halloween, The Thing, Escape From New York, and Assault on Precinct 13 has only made one movie in the past 13 years—2010’s psychological thriller The Ward—and hasn’t troubled the box office in a big way since 1998’s James Woods-starring Vampires. (And Carpenter, 66, doesn’t sound like he’s in any rush to get back behind the camera: “I worked really hard for more years than I’d like to count, but now I can pick and choose things,” says the director, who most recently co-penned a comic book follow-up to his 1986 kung fu-fantasy film Big Trouble in Little China. “I was doing too much—music and writing and all this shit. I had to take a break. I’m developing a couple of things. But we’ll see. There’s no urgency.”)
Fans of Peter Jackson’s early, gory output should definitely check out the trailer for the forthcoming horror film Housebound—a film which has apparently received the stamp of approval from Sir Peter himself.
Written and directed by New Zealand filmmaker Gerard Johnstone, the film stars Morgana O’Reilly as a woman who is placed on home detention and has to live with her mother. Mom believes her house is haunted. Is she right? Find out on October 17, when the film arrives in theatres as well as on VOD and iTunes.
Author, artist, and director Clive Barker seems to have few qualms about inflicting injury on characters, as those familiar with his Books of Blood short stories or the 1987 film Hellraiser know. But Barker himself had a painful experience with his 1990 fantasy-horror film Nightbreed. The tale of a suspected serial killer (Craig Sheffer) who joins a group of freakish-looking outcasts the film was, to Barker’s enduring dissatisfaction, re-cut before its release, and some of the movie’s original elements were subsequently lost forever…
People with the name “Michael King” may well find themselves asking “Wait, what the Hell is going on now?” when the new horror film The Possession of Michael King is released in August. As it happens, that would be an entirely appropriate question to raise.
In the new creature feature Animal two sets of folks — including characters played by Keke Palmer (90210), Jeremy Sumpter (Friday Night Lights), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy) and rapper-actress Eve — are hunted by a forest-dwelling beastie with a lot of teeth in its head and very few vegetarian recipes on its mind.

Forty years after it scared the pants off America — and territories beyond — Tobe Hooper’s ultimate scare machine The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is returning to the big screen this summer in freshly restored form. Hooper himself worked on the restoration and recently told Entertainment Weekly “the film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.” READ FULL STORY
