Like a woodland-trapped demon waiting for someone to read the appropriate, evil-corporealizing incantation, the Evil Dead movie franchise has been quiet since 1992′s Army of Darkness. But that will change on April 12 when the remake of director Sam Raimi’s original 1981 shocker The Evil Dead hits cinemas. Produced by the architects of the previous three films in the franchise — Raimi, Rob Tapert, and Bruce “Ash” Campbell — this new iteration is cowritten by Diablo Cody and stars Jane Levy (Suburgatory), Shiloh Fernandez, and Lou Taylor Pucci. Replacing Raimi in the director’s chair is newcomer Fede Alvarez, whose alien invasion short film Panic Attack! has garnered an impressive 7m views on the ol’ YouTube.

'Texas Chainsaw 3D' star Alexandra Daddario on facing off against Leatherface and those 'Fifty Shades of Grey' rumors
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has a habit of casting actors on the cusp of fame, be they Matthew McConaughey and Renée Zellweger in 1994′s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, Jessica Biel in the 2003 remake of Tobe Hooper’s original classic shocker, or Matt Bomer in 2006′s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The latest thespian hoping to benefit from what we’re going to call “the Chainsaw bump” is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief) who plays the heroine in Texas Chainsaw 3D, which arrives in cinemas this Friday.
Below, the actress talks about facing off against the iconic Leatherface, the forthcoming Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, and why the cast members of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia aren’t as drunk as you might think. READ FULL STORY
This Friday, the festive squeals of delighted children and the electrical hum of holiday lights will be replaced by the screams of tormented twentysomethings and the grinding of mechanical wood-slicing devices when horror sequel Texas Chainsaw 3D hits cinemas. A direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s infamous 1974 shocker The Texas Chainsaw Massacre this seventh entry in the franchise is directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and stars Alexandra Daddario, Trey Songz, Scott Eastwood, and Dan Yeager as the iconic Leatherface.
Ah, Chile — land of unspoiled natural beauty, perfect weather, and gorgeous locals wearing little but bathing suits. Nothing could ever go wrong here… right?
Well, unless you’re horror virtuoso Eli Roth, and you’re co-writing and starring in a new thriller set within its borders. In that case, Chile isn’t just the “indie station of Latin America,” whatever that means — it’s a place where a devastating earthquake is just a preamble to the violence committed by the quake’s victims. Call it a disaster movie meets Lord of the Flies, encapsulated by this line from the film’s new teaser: “The only thing more terrifying than mother nature is… human nature.”
Watch a lovely, sun-soaked vacation devolve into a horrific, fire-filled, ax-wielding nightmare in the clip below. Shades of Hostel, anyone?
Director Jim Mickle made a splash with his 2010 vampire-apocalypse movie Stake Land and his follow-up film, an English language remake of the acclaimed Mexican chiller We Are What We Are, is set to premiere at Sundance next year. To say too much about the original movie would be to slightly spoil both that and, presumably, Mickle’s version, which stars Julia Garner (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Ambyr Childers (The Master), Bill Sage (Nurse Jackie), Kelly McGillis, and newcomer Jack Gore. So, to be safe, we’ll just parrot the remake’s official plot synopsis and say that it concerns “an introverted family struggling to keep their macabre traditions alive, giving us something we can really sink our teeth into.”
We can, however, show you an exclusive photo of Gore from the new movie. Check it out and tell us what you think. (And those who don’t mind their ghoulish fun being spoiled a little should feel free to take a look at the trailer to the Mexican original.)
Fifth time’s the charm?
Though Paranormal Activity 4 underperformed with critics, with audiences — who gave it a “C,” according to CinemaScore — and at the box office, another installment of the found-footage franchise was inevitable. Earlier this fall, Paramount announced that Paranormal Activity 5 would bow sometime next October, and that a Spanish PA spinoff was in the works as well. Though the studio hasn’t released any more information about Actividad Sobrenatural, it did just reveal that PA 5 will arrive in theaters just in time for Halloween — on October 25, 2013, to be precise.
Could this be the final English language Paranormal Activity film? READ FULL STORY
There will be blood. Lots and lots and lots of blood, apparently, in the upcoming horror anthology ABCs of Death, as evidenced by this delightfully gruesome NSFW new red band trailer, below. The ambitious horror flick from Magnet, on demand Jan. 31 and in theaters March 8, features 26 different gory death scenes by 26 different directors, including Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun) and Ben Wheatley (Kill List). Sit back, put up your feet, and indulge your sicko horror fan favorite scenarios, from mega explosions to a femme fatale driving a speeding car, an animated monster spraying bloody bits, a gal psychotically happy with a chainsaw, and a dog with a taste for human meat. All set to the creepiest sing-song version of the ABCs you’ve possibly heard.
'They Live': John Carpenter on why his sci-fi classic is as timely as ever, plus EXCLUSIVE clips from the new Blu-ray
As Americans get ready to head to the polls, the timing couldn’t be better for a fresh look at John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi flick They Live. Fortunately, a brand new Blu-ray version of the film is hitting stores on election day. Aside from a slew of new bonus features and a crisp-as-a-hundred-dollar-bill high-def transfer, the film (about a blue-collar drifter who finds a pair of sunglasses that allow him see that aliens have turned us all into passive zombies) comes complete with an incendiary class-warfare political message that’s just as relevant today as it was back at the height of the Reagan/Bush era. If all of that doesn’t seal the deal, there’s also this: the sight of pro wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper spouting his gem of a one-liner: I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass…and I’m all out of bubble gum.”
On the eve of the Blu-ray’s release, we got an EXCLUSIVE peek at some of the disc’s new extras and spoke with Carpenter about his rage-against-the-machine classic… READ FULL STORY
Christmas may be the most wonderful time of the year but, according to the trailer for the new horror film Silent Night, it’s also the time of the year when you are most likely to get electrocuted, axed, or burned to a crisp by an industrious, flamethrower-wielding Father Christmas. “We’re just going to have to take this maniac down ourselves!” declares Malcolm McDowell towards the end of the clip, which only seems fair, given that he’s actually playing a cop (was the A Clockwork Orange star hoping the Salvation Army might blast the guy to smithereens first?).
This loose remake of 1984′s Silent Night, Deadly Night yo-ho-argggh!’s its way into select cinemas on November 30 — and is available on DVD and Blu-ray from December 4 — but you can check out the trailer below.
'V/H/S': Horror anthology sequel to feature segments directed by the makers of 'The Raid,' 'Hobo with a Shotgun,' and 'The Blair Witch Project'
The horror anthology revival continues. It was announced today that the multi-tale-featuring found footage terror flick V/H/S is set to spawn a sequel, V/H/S/2. The film will feature segments directed by Gareth Evans (The Raid), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Adam Wingard (You’re Next), Timo Tjahjanto (Macabre), V/H/S cowriter Simon Barrett, Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project), and Sanchez’s long-time producing partner Gregg Hale. According to the official announcement, the sequel “will be similar in structure to the original, living within the mythology established by the first film and following the same basic tenants, with each director taking on a specific sub-genre of horror.”
