“I still smell the blood in my sleep,” says Drew Goddard. The filmmaker is talking about the psychic aftershocks of shooting his debut movie, The Cabin in the Woods, a horror comedy he co-wrote with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon. That Goddard’s subconscious is still haunted is testament to the volume of fake red stuff in his movie, which is released tomorrow and stars Chris Hemsworth, Bradley Whitford, and Richard Jenkins. Why? Because Goddard shot Cabin in Vancouver way back in 2009, only to see its release delayed by more than two years due to the bankruptcy of the film’s original studio, MGM. That’s long enough for Hemsworth to have played the role of Thor twice, the second time in Whedon’s Avengers, which arrives in cinemas just three weeks after Cabin. “We shot the film and had an amazing time,” says the Australian actor. “Then it disappeared for three years.”

'The Cabin in the Woods': Check out the forthcoming horror movie's new Mondo/Alamo Drafthouse poster -- EXCLUSIVE
Mondois the collectible art boutique offshoot of the Alamo Drafthouse cinema chain and, as we’ve previously reported, the folks there have produced an array of stylish, eye-catching posters for old movies. But Mondo has also commissioned posters for new films, including Drive and Hobo with a Shotgun. Now the company is paying tribute to director Drew Goddard and cowriter Joss Whedon’s forthcoming The Cabin in the Woods.
'The ABC's of Death': Check out the forthcoming horror anthology's new gloriously gruesome poster -- EXCLUSIVE
As scary concepts go, learning the alphabet has never really ranked up there with, say, being pursued by a chainsaw-wielding maniac, being attacked by a horde of hungry zombies, or being stitched together into a human centipede by a deranged surgeon. To put it another way, the ABCs are generally thought of as being more Sesame Street than Elm Street. But all that is about to change!
This September will see the release of the ABCs of Death, a new horror anthology with 26 demise-oriented chapters, each one overseen by a different director. The featured filmmakers include Ti West (The Innkeepers), Jason Eisener (Hobo with a Shotgun), Ben Wheatley (Kill List), and Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes).
If that isn’t enough to whet fright fans’ appetites, we are pleased to exclusively unveil the movie’s poster, which you can see to the left and in larger form below. This macabre vision was designed by Kaare Andrews, a comic book artist-writer (The Incredible Hulk, Ultimate X-Men) and filmmaker who is himself currently prepping the Cabin Fever prequel Patient X.
The Woman in Black is coming back! British studio Hammer Films and author Susan Hill will collaborate once more on Woman in Black: Angels of Death.
“We are proud and honored to be working with Susan again on The Woman in Black: Angels Of Death, a wonderful new tale every bit as atmospheric and terrifying as its predecessor The Woman in Black,” said Simon Oakes, the Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer Films.
Though Daniel Radcliffe starred in the first installment, it seems unlikely that he will be able to reprise his role in the next one: It picks up 40 years later and will center on a couple who, like Radcliffe’s character, experience the supernatural horrors that occur at the haunted Eel Marsh House. The script will be developed by story editor Jon Croker.
The horror film, which opened in February, was the highest-grossing British horror film of the past 20 years, and has banked $120 million worldwide.

'28 Weeks Later' director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo talks about his new frightfest 'Intruders' and his planned 'Highlander' reboot
Why does director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo hate London? In 2007′s horror sequel 28 Weeks Later the Spanish filmmaker (re)populated Britain’s capital with bloodthirsty, rage-virus-infested maniacs and then napalmed it back to the Stone Age. Now, in Fresnadillo’s atmospheric Intruders, Hollow Face, a featureless monster, terrorizes Clive Owen’s London-dwelling family. Did the director once eat a bad portion of fish and chips? “I’ve had fish and chips,” laughs Fresnadillo. “I’m not a fan, to be honest. But the Indian food in England is the best I’ve ever had!”
Human Centipede star Dieter Laser might have to put his money where his mouth is. The gross-out franchise’s director Tom Six (pictured), through his company Six Entertainment, is threatening to sue the star of The Human Centipede and The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) for breach of contract.
“Because of the success of The Human Centipede, it seems that Mr. Dieter Laser’s ego has grown to laughably big proportions,” said producer (and Tom’s sister) Ilona Six in a statement. She continued that Laser “demand[ed] his own unacceptable script changes” and backed out of the role “only seven weeks prior to shooting.”
Bad news for Centipede fans: The suit will delay production on The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence), which was supposed to begin in May or June. Now principal photography will be pushed back until the fall. READ FULL STORY »
Cloverfield scribe and Lost executive producer Drew Goddard shot The Cabin in the Woods — the horror comedy he co-wrote with Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon — back in 2009 only to see its release delayed by more than two years thanks to the bankruptcy of the film’s original studio, MGM. That’s long enough for Cabin star Hemsworth to have played the role of Thor twice, the second time in Whedon’s Avengers, which arrives in cinemas just three weeks after Cabin.
Goddard’s waiting game officially ended on March 9, when the gloriously grotesque Cabin opened at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival. Though the wait isn’t quite over for the rabid pack of Whedonites and horror junkies anticipating the film’s April 13 release, EW has five new images and a bit of the film’s thrilling backstory to keep the blood lust at bay — at least for a little while.
The recent Off-Broadway musical revival of Carrie may have gone down like a gym on fire, but that seemingly hasn’t delayed Kimberly Peirce’s remake of the Stephen King classic. According to Vulture, the Boys Don’t Cry director has narrowed her search to fill Sissy Spacek’s two-inch heels as the titular telekinetic heroine down to two frontrunners – Chloë Grace Moretz and Haley Bennett.

In The Hunger Games, nobody who knows better would mess with Jennifer Lawrence’s ultra-survivor Katniss Everdeen, but in her upcoming horror thriller House at the End of the Street, the 21-year-old actress stars as someone a lot more vulnerable — though just as threatened.
Lawrence’s character and her mother (played by Leaving Las Vegas actress Elisabeth Shue) move in next door to a house that was the site of savage murders years ago, only to learn that the young man whose family was slaughtered (Max Thieriot, Chloe, My Soul to Take) still lives inside. He and Lawrence strike up a friendship that starts to edge toward romance, but then she discovers some twisted secrets.
Say what you like about the folks behind forthcoming horror sequel Piranha 3DD but at least they’re not trying to disguise their objectification of the female form as some arty fashion shoot or armless statue (that’s right, Venus de Milo, we’re talking about you). Warning: Not surprisingly, the trailer is definitely NSFW.
