In the new, 1976-set drama Berberian Sound Studio, the great British thesp Toby Jones (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Hunger Games) plays a sound engineer who finds himself far out of his comfort zone after being hired by a notorious low-budget Italian horror studio (although, to be honest, I’m not sure there are any non-notorious, high-budget Italian horror studios).

'Hatchet III' exclusive: Check out the horror sequel's new trailer -- GRUESOME: ADULT CONTENT AND NSFW
Few recent filmmakers have more enthusiastically, or more bloodily, embraced the mantle of horror director than Adam Green whose Hatchet franchise details the gore-drenched ways of swamp-dwelling maniac Victor Crowley. Indeed, 2010′s unrated Hatchet II made headlines when the AMC cinema chain pulled the movie from screens after just a couple of days.
It seems like only last year that the original V/H/S marauded its way into cinemas — maybe because it was. But the busy beavers behind that found footage horror anthology have already readied a sequel, the Sundance-screened V/H/S/2.
Warner Bros. has been exploring the possibility of a movie prequel to The Shining for quite a while, but the project just got a jolt of new life with news that The Walking Dead‘s former showrunner Glen Mazzara is in talks to write it.
But does the studio that released Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation have the rights to move forward? That’s a question the studio wasn’t able to answer definitively when EW asked last summer, and Stephen King himself recently expressed doubts. READ FULL STORY
Director James Wan’s follow-up to 2011′s smash hit Insidious looks to feature a similar atmosphere of old-school bump-in-the-night horror. The new trailer for this summer’s The Conjuring focuses on true-life investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga), who investigate a freaky house where freaky things happened. “It’s not a haunting. It’s not a possession,” the trailer explains. Whatever “it” is, it seems to include lots of scary faces, hanging bodies, and at least one terrifying use of a music box. Watch the trailer below: READ FULL STORY
Check out the poster for Ben Wheatley's new killers-on-vacation film 'Sightseers' -- EXCLUSIVE IMAGE
Over the past couple of years writer-director Ben Wheatley has established himself as one of the U.K.’s hottest — and most deliciously gruesome — filmmakers with his 2009 gangster movie Down Terrace, 2011′s unforgettable horror spectacular Kill List, and his recent contribution to the currently playing-in-select-cinemas horror anthology The ABC’s of Death.
'You're Next' trailer: Check out the first clip for the home invasion horror-comedy...if you dare! -- VIDEO
I recently saw a screening of the excellent home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next and, for reasons which will become abundantly clear when the film hits cinemas on August 23, have had the Dwight Twilley Band’s why-was-this-never-a-hit? soft-rock classic “Looking For the Magic” on repeat in my head ever since. The movie’s first trailer features no Twilley — making highly ironic use of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day” instead — and gives little indication as to the darkly hilarious nature of director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett’s film. But the clip does accurately tease the large amount of nerve-rending mayhem to be found in the movie, whose cast includes Sharni Vinson, AJ Bowen, Re-Animator star Barbara Crampton, and indie director Joe Swanberg, amongst others.
You can check out the trailer below. Take a look and tell us what you think.

In the new horror movie Come Out and Play a holidaying couple, played by Ebon Moss-Bachrach (Lola Versus) and Vinessa Shaw (2006’s The Hills Have Eyes), visit an island off the coast of Mexico where they discover the local children have murdered the adults. But the most bizarre aspect of the film, which began its platform release on March 22 and is currently available on VOD, is the identity of its director, who goes by the mono-moniker of “Makinov” and refuses to reveal his face or real name.
'A Resurrection': Mischa Barton describes working with the late Michael Clarke Duncan -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
In Mischa Barton’s new film, the girl who was once killed off the hit teen soap The OC in a tragic car accident is now the one trying to solve the murder of a high schooler who was killed by — you guessed it — a car accident. A Resurrection stars Barton as a high-school guidance counselor who is forced to deal with a bullying situation that quickly turns into a murder investigation when a student is run-over by a car allegedly driven by a group of mean cool kids. Eli, the victim’s brother (J. Michael Trautmann), takes his dying brother’s body to a witch, who implants a spirit in the body. According to the witch, six days after being buried, the boy will rise from the grave, and only after killing six people will the spirit leave the body. Conveniently, when Eli is bullied exactly six days after his brother’s burial, he manages for six people to be cornered at the school when the vengeful spirit of his brother comes knocking.
We caught up with Barton to discuss the film, including working with the late Michael Clark Duncan, who plays the school’s principal. Watch an exclusive video clip of the two of them together.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: What drew you to this project?
MISCHA BARTON: [A Resurrection] was the beginning of my love of scary things. I liked the cast, I liked the vibe, and looking at it now, because it was actually [filmed] two and a half years ago, it has a bit less of a retro vibe than we thought but it still has something kind of classic horror scary about it.

'Room 237': Check out the poster for the awesome new documentary about Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining' -- EXCLUSIVE
In Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror classic The Shining, Scatman Crothers’ chef Hallorann warns Danny Lloyd’s Danny to stay the hell away from room 237 of the Overlook Hotel — which turns out to excellent, if ignored, advice. But while room 237 is to be avoided, the new documentary Room 237 is a must-see, one which EW’s Owen Gleiberman has described as a “mesmerizing pop-art document.” The work of first-time director Rodney Ascher, the film showcases the theories of five obsessive Shining fans as to what Kubrick really intended with his Stephen King adaptation and features footage from both that snowy chiller and many others.
Room 237 opens theatrically on March 29 and will also be available on VOD, SundanceNOW, and other digital outlets from that date. You can check out the film’s trailer, synopsis, and — exclusively — the new Room 237 poster below.
