When British director Ben Wheatley‘s new film A Field in England was released in the U.K. last year one newspaper hailed the 17th century drama as “Apocalypse Now among the hedgerows.” Certainly this latest movie from the director of Sightseers, Kill List, and the forthcoming, Tom Hiddleston-starring High-Rise makes for an unforgettable experience as audiences here will discover when the film arrives in select cinemas and on VOD tomorrow.

We haven’t seen too much of Karen Gillan since she left Doctor Who — and even her appearance on last year’s special Christmas episode of the beloved sci-fi show was something of a blink-and-you’d-miss-it affair. But 2014 looks like it could be a big year for the Scottish actress, who has roles in both August’s Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy and the horror movie Oculus, in which she faces off against a supernatural force unleashed by an antique mirror.
The latter film is written and directed by Mike Flanagan and co-stars Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane, and Gillan’s fellow small screen sci-fi veteran Katee Sackhoff.
Oculus is released April 11, but you can check out the film’s new trailer below. Take a look and tell us what you think.

Anyone who had only seen prolific director Joe Swanberg‘s two films of last year — the Olivia Wilde-starring Drinking Buddies and the Jane Adams-topped All the Light in the Sky – might conclude he is a sensitive and PC-friendly chronicler of low-key social interactions. On the other hand, anyone who had only seen the filmmaker’s new movie 24 Exposures could come away with the impression that he is an auteur of a rather different, and kinkier, stripe.
It has been very quiet on the A Nightmare on Elm Street front since the Jackie Earle Haley-starring reboot of Wes Craven’s original horror classic hit cinemas in 2010. But horror fans with both a desire to know more about the franchise and a Blu-ray player should definitely check out the exhaustive documentary Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, which debuts on that format tomorrow. Directed by Daniel Farrands and Andrew Kasch and penned by Thommy Hutson (writer of the forthcoming horror movie Animal) the four-hour film finds Craven, Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and many many more reminiscing about the trials and tribulations involved in bringing Freddy Krueger to the screen over the years.
Bruce Dern has confirmed that he spoke with Quentin Tarantino about the possibility of appearing in the director’s next movie. “We had a conversation,” said Dern, who yesterday received a Best Actor Oscar nomination for his performance as delusional alcoholic Woody Grant in the film Nebraska. “I mean, he hasn’t hired me yet or anything. But we had a conversation about the material, yes we did.”
'Rosemary's Baby'-inspired 'Devil's Due' is 'every new couple's worst nightmare,' Eli Roth says -- VIDEO
The filmmakers behind Devil’s Due will always be the first to admit that Roman Polanski’s 1968 classic Rosemary’s Baby inspired their film, a found-footage horror movie about a young newlywed who has the misfortune of being impregnated with a satanic being.
“We wanted to own it from the start. We didn’t want to pretend that it wasn’t that and hide it and make you wait. The scene where she gets impregnated is about 15 minutes into the movie,” said Matt Bettinelli-Olpin, who co-directed the film with his Radio Silence collective and V/H/S directing team Tyler Gillett, Justin Martinez, and Chad Villella. She might not realize what’s going on, but the audience is never left in the dark.
“It was a really fun thing to watch Rosemary’s Baby and then get to borrow things that felt right for this version,” added Gillett.

Yesterday, we posted an interview with Hung actress Jane Adams in which she discussed her new comedy-drama All the Light in the Sky and the impersonation of Jack Nicholson which costar Larry Fessenden delivers at one point in the movie. Well, now you can check out that impersonation yourself in an exclusive clip from the movie, the latest film from prolific indie director Joe Swanberg (Drinking Buddies).
It’s early days, but Cheap Thrills could well turn out to be 2014′s blackest black-comedy. The directorial debut of E.L. Katz stars David Koechner (Anchorman) and Sara Paxton (The Innkeepers) as a pair of well-heeled L.A.-dwellers who goad two desperate-for-cash characters — played by Pat Healy and Ethan Embry — to commit increasingly unwise and/or illegal acts for growing sums of cash. We hesitate to say more, but the film’s new poster, which you can see exclusively above, gives some idea of the macabre mayhem which results.
The new horror movie Banshee Chapter is full of familiar faces, including Katia Winter (Sleepy Hollow), Michael McMillian (True Blood), and the great Ted Levine (Silence of the Lambs, Monk). But the biggest name attached to this tale of psychedelic drug use and threatening, extra-dimensional presences is its executive producer Zachary Quinto, whose production company Before the Door — which he cofounded with Corey Moosa and Neal Dodson — was responsible for overseeing the film.
Below, Quinto talks about his involvement with Banshee Chapter which is now available on VOD and will start a theatrical run in select cities on Jan. 10. And, below our chat with the Star Trek star, check out an exclusive making-of clip featuring interviews with Moosa, producer Stephanie Riggs, and writer-director Blair Erickson.

Director Adrián García Bogliano impressed many horror fans — including this one — with 2011′s slow-burn occult thriller Penumbra and the filmmaker recently wrapped his first English language feature, the werewolf film Late Phases. But from today, terror freaks will be able to check out his first, post-Penumbra movie, the Mexico-shot Here Comes the Devil, which can be viewed at select cinemas and via VOD and iTunes.
Francisco Barreiro and Laura Caro play parents whose two children disappear while exploring a mountainside near Tijuana with predictably horrific — if otherwise decidedly unpredictable — consequences.
