There is a saying in Britain: “It does exactly what it says on the tin.” This colloquialism derives from ’90s-era TV ads for a brand of quick-drying woodstain — which did indeed prominently feature the phrase “quick-drying woodstain” on the tins — but could equally apply to the new U.K. horror film, Cockneys vs Zombies. Starring Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman), Alan Ford (Snatch), Tony Gardner (The Thick of It) and the late, great British TV icon Richard Briers, the movie finds a group of London-living folks facing off against a bunch of ghouls who aren’t technically “living” at all.

In the new monster movie Beneath, a group of boat-trapped teens are menaced by a giant fish — although, as things go from bad to worse to whatever-comes-after-worse, it becomes clear the real monsters are the kids themselves rather than their piscine predator.
“That’s the point of the film!” laughs Beneath director Larry Fessenden, whose previous credits include 2001′s Wendigo and 2006′s The Last Winter. “That’s a little bit about my obsession that people have been parenting wrong. I tried to show some compassion for the characters, but they’re all just in for themselves and it leads to a bad end. The fish is just doing what he does!”
Starring Daniel Zovatto, Bonnie Dennison, and Mark Margolis (a.k.a. Tio Salamanca from Breaking Bad), Beneath is now playing in select cinemas (including New York’s IFC Center) and is available on VOD. The movie will be screened on Chiller TV this fall.
Larry Fessenden talks much more about Beneath below.

There’s double the Dourifs in the new horror sequel Curse of Chucky which, it has been announced, will be released on Blu-ray and DVD, October 8. While the great Brad Dourif will once again voice the film’s titular, possessed, and extremely homicidal doll the film’s (other) lead role will be played by his daughter Fiona (True Blood). According to the official synopsis this sixth movie in the series which began with 1988′s Child’s Play “finds a family imperiled by the murderous doll that launched a generation’s nightmares—determined to finish a job that was started long ago.” The film is written and directed by Don Mancini, who has penned every film in the franchise.
In addition, Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival announced today that it will host the world premiere of Curse of Chucky. Other newly announced films on the Fantasia schedule include the Zoë Bell-starring Raze and Zombie Hunter, which features a ghoul-battling Danny Trejo.
The Fantasia International Film Festival runs from July 18-August 6. You can check out the new trailer for Curse of Chucky below. READ FULL STORY
Here at Entertainment Weekly we’re as keen as anyone that people drink responsibly. Yet we also want you to check out a tourism video for the British burg of Newton Haven and its highly irresponsible invitation to try the town’s infamous Golden Mile pub crawl. (“One mile! 12 pubs!”)
Why? Because Newton Haven is actually the fictitious setting for director Edgar Wright’s sci-fi comedy The World’s End, which stars Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Martin Freeman, and Rosamund Pike, and arrives in cinemas Aug. 23.
You can check out the clip below.
