In the ’70s-set The Quiet Ones, Jared Harris (Mad Men) portrays a British professor determined to prove that there is a scientific explanation for the seemingly supernatural phenomena besetting a young woman, played by Bates Motel actress Olivia Cooke. As The Quiet Ones, which opens this Friday, comes to us from the famously horror-obsessed U.K company Hammer, it does not spoil things too much to reveal that the prof’s plan goes wildly awry.

Eric Roberts and his spouse Eliza Roberts were guests on Monday’s episode of Entertainment Weirdly on EW’s Sirius XM channel to discuss their episode of Celebrity Wife Swap, which airs Tuesday. But we couldn’t let the Dark Knight star and onetime Oscar nominee leave without asking him about his upcoming film Human Centipede 3, the third entry of the notorious horror franchise in which people are attached together to form the grotesque titular creature.
Well, we could have let him leave without asking about it. We just didn’t. READ FULL STORY
Seeing director Zack Parker’s new thriller Proxy will undoubtedly represent two of the most unforgettable hours you spend in the cinema this year — if, that is, you can get past the first five minutes. In the film, Alexia Rasmussen plays a heavily pregnant woman named Esther who loses her baby as the result of a brutal beating, which takes place in the aforementioned opening minutes, and subsequently befriends another bereaved mother called Melanie (Alexa Havins) at a grief support group. But is Melanie quite what she seems? And, for that matter, is Esther? READ FULL STORY
How gory is the new slasher movie Stage Fright? This gory: During her post-shoot ADR recording session, actress Minnie Driver wouldn’t even watch her own, very early demise. “It was too gruesome for her,” says director Jerome Sable.
So why did Driver agree to appear in the film in the first place? “She had been in The Phantom of the Opera, the film version [of the Andrew Lloyd Webber Broadway show],” explains Sable. “So I appealed to her on that level.”
Oh, right. There’s something we forgot to mention about Stage Fright. In addition to being a full-on, blood-soaked horror flick, the film is also a full-fledged, song-packed, musical.
There are essentially two kinds of alien movies — the kind in which bicycles are magically transformed into flying machines, and the kind in which people’s insides are rather less magically transformed into lunch.
Megan Fox has long claimed to be a self-described “nerd” but has unexpectedly upped the ante when it comes to her fan-girl obsession with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
“I was really in love with them,” confesses Fox, who stars as reporter April O’Neil in the live-action reboot of the ‘80s cartoon which hits theaters August 8. “I have an older sister that’s 12 years older than me, so part of it initially was because I wanted to be like my big sister. But, it’s a really cool project for me because it was a huge part of my childhood, and it’s always been.” READ FULL STORY
Anyone who knows vampires only as the Twilight franchise’s sparkly-skinned specimens will get a rude shock if they watch the new found footage horror film Afflicted, which debuts to theaters and on VOD today.
“The thing we found exciting was the idea of a vampire film that was completely divorced of sexuality, romanticism, and melodrama,” says Clif Prowse, who directed the movie with his childhood friend and fellow Canadian Derek Lee. “What would it actually be like if you were biologically compelled to eat human blood and to kill people? What would that do to you emotionally? It seemed to us it would be a much darker, grittier psychological tale than, ‘I’m going to be young and hot forever, feel sorry for me.’”
One bona fide movie legend will fete another on June 11 when John Carpenter presents Roger Corman with the New Media Film Festival‘s Legend Award at the Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles. Carpenter is, of course, the director of such genre classics as Halloween and The Thing while the list of notable films made by producer and director Corman merely begins with The Trip, Death Race 2000, Rock ‘n’ Roll High School, and the original Little Shop of Horrors. As a distributor he was also responsible for introducing American audiences to an array of European art house films. (Those interested in learning more about the latter’s storied career should definitely check out my colleague Chris Nashawaty’s recent tome, Crab Monsters, Teenage Caveman, and Candy Stripe Nurses—Roger Corman: King of the B Movie.)
