For much of the 1986 martial arts action-comedy Big Trouble In Little China, Kurt Russell’s truck-driving hero Jack Burton exists in a state of complete, and hilarious, confusion (“Where are we, Wang?” “What’s happening, Wang?” “Jesus Christ, where are we?”). So heaven knows what Burton would have to say about the new, jaw-droppingly elaborate parody clip “Lo Pan Style” which melds director John Carpenter’s way-ahead-of-its-time movie with Psy’s globe-conquering horsey-hit “Gangnam Style.” But the video does feature James Hong, who actually played the villainous Lo Pan in the original film, and has also apparently been given the thumbs up by Carpenter himself – which is good enough for us.

Paramount has confirmed plans to continue the low-budget saga with a fifth installment set for Halloween 2013, according to Deadline.
The website also reports that a Latino spinoff of the horror franchise is in development, with the film tentatively slated for a spring 2013 release. Christopher Landon, who’s best known for penning the Shia LaBeouf thriller Disturbia, will direct the picture.
Wake In Fright is not the easiest movie to sum up in a couple of sentences, but the fact that goth overlord and Proposition screenwriter Nick Cave has described this 1971 thriller as “the best and most terrifying film about Australia in existence” gives the potential viewer some hint of what is in store.
The first two Paranormal Activity movies left a lot of questions unanswered with regard to Katie Featherston’s possessed Katie and her character’s infant nephew Hunter with whom she absconded at the end of PA2. Questions like, “So, uh, what happened next to Katie Featherston’s possessed Katie and her character’s infant nephew Hunter with whom she absconded at the end of PA2?”.
That particular query went unanswered by the last year’s prequel Paranormal Activity 3 and when EW recently spoke with PA3 and Paranormal Activity 4 directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman they were predictably tight-lipped about the plot of the franchise’s forthcoming fourth entry and whether Featherston even appears in the movie (“We’re not allowed to say but she definitely haunts our dreams,” is all Joost would admit).
The new PA4 trailer, on the other hand, strongly hints that the film will clear up the situation: In fact, that’s the promise it makes right at the start. Also featured? A creepy kid (is that Hunter? Maybe) a shadowy female figure (is that Katie? Could be) and a fridge full of food (is it time for me to grab some lunch? For sure).
Check out the trailer for the film — which arrives in cinemas October 19 — and tell us what you think.
In director Joe Dante’s new movie The Hole a pair of young brothers (Chris Massoglia, Nathan Gamble) and their neighbor (Haley Bennett) investigate a mysterious chasm in the basement of the siblings’ house and are forced to deal with the array of terrifying unpleasantness which emerges from said aperture. Like Dante’s pair of Gremlins movies, the result is a family-friendly venture which may have younger clan members viewing the action through trembling fingers. “It’s my revenge,” laughs Dante. “That’s how I watched Tarantula in 1955. I forced my father to take me to see this giant spider movie and I’m so scared that I’m in the lobby peeking in. My poor father was left sitting alone watching a giant spider movie.”
Does the lack of the word “Massacre” in the freshly truncated title of Texas Chainsaw 3D indicate that this sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will find Leatherface settling his problems through the power of rhetoric? Apparently not, judging by the movie’s first trailer which features mechanical woodcutting device-related mayhem aplenty.
Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and set for release on January 4, TC3D stars Dan Yeager as the axe-snubbing Leatherface and Alexandra Daddario as a woman who inherits a mansion with dank cellars. Are those cellars filled with vintage wine and aged cheeses? Again, judging by the trailer, it seems not.

'V/H/S': Check out the horror anthology's new poster from 'Walking Dead' artist Tony Moore -- EXCLUSIVE
Want to get a jump on Halloween? Well, you could hone your pumpkin-hollowing skills. Or you could watch the new, found footage horror anthology V/H/S, which arrives in cinemas October 5 but is already available on VOD.
Framed by the tale of a burglary attempt which goes horribly awry the terror compendium’s directors include Ti West (House of the Devil), Glenn McQuaid (I Sell the Dead), and the filmmaking collective Radio Silence. The latter group are responsible for the anthology’s concluding chapter, “10/31/98,” in which the attempt by a group of costumed friends to attend a Halloween party goes, yes, horribly awry. “10/31/98″ is also the inspiration for a new V/H/S poster from artist Tony Moore, who is best known for his work on the Walking Dead comic. Moore’s work is one of five posters commissioned from comic book artists — the other contributors being James Stokoe, RM Guéra, Jason Latour, and Esad Ribic.
You can exclusively check out Moore’s poster above and, in larger format, below, where you’ll also find the V/H/S trailer.
In the new horror movie Sinister, Ethan Hawke plays a true crime writer who moves his family into a house that was the site of a notably grisly incident and finds some extremely strange home movies in the attic.
Do things go well for our scribe hero as he investigates what happened at his new abode in the hopes of penning a bestseller? I don’t think it will overly anger the Spoiler Gods to hint that they very much do not.
Sinister, which also stars Vincent D’Onofrio, British actress Juliet Rylance, and onetime presidential hopeful Fred Thompson opens Oct. 5 — although horror fans can petition to have their town host an advance screening at the film’s official website. In the meantime, you can exclusively check out a new poster for the film, which was created by SA Studios, above and, in a larger format, below. READ FULL STORY »
'House at the End of the Street': Elisabeth Shue on Jennifer Lawrence, and just how 'creepy' that house really was -- EXCLUSIVE CLIP
Isn’t it always the way? You get a killer deal on a sweet new home with a spacious backyard, and it turns out it’s ’cause that backyard has a view of the house where two people were viciously murdered by their own daughter, who may still be at large in the woods. Still: Great lawn!
That’s the launching point for The House at the End of the Street, a horror film out Sept. 21, starring Elisabeth Shue as a ne’er-do-well single mom and Jennifer Lawrence as her headstrong teenage daughter. In this exclusive clip from the film, the duo get their first look at the titular abode — check it out below, and then read on for why Shue says that house was also “really, really creepy” in real life.

What would a coastally-set found footage horror movie look like if it was directed by much lauded, Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson? Yes, that’s an unusual, and unusually specific, question. But it’s one we’re now able to ruminate upon in an informed manner thanks to the arrival of the trailer for The Bay, a coastally-set found footage horror movie which is indeed the work of the Diner and Rain Man auteur.
The answer? It looks much like the kind of amazingly gruesome, body horror-featuring gorefest one imagines David Cronenberg might make had he not abandoned the genre in favor of the sort of high-minded, actorly material once much more associated with filmmakers such as, well, Barry Levinson.
Take a look at the clip for The Bay — which swims into cinemas and onto VOD, November 2 — and see if you agree.
