When EW spoke with writer-actor Joe Swanberg last year about his appearance in horror filmmaker Ti West‘s new movie The Sacrament he described this tale of a Jonestown-style cult as one “not to be taken lightly.” Certainly the new red band trailer for the movie is about as un-frivolous as you can get. This latest film from the director of The Innkeepers and The House of the Devil costars AJ Bowen, Amy Seimetz, and Gene Jones and was produced by Eli Roth. The Sacrament debuts on VOD May 1 and will begin a theatrical run on June 6.

Box office update: 'Lego' and 'About Last Night' freeze out the competition with $13 million each on Friday
The Lego Movie built a second floor to its box office success yesterday, earning $13.03 million and just beating out the Kevin Hart-starring About Last Night, a remake of the Rob Lowe- and Demi Moore-topped 1986 comedy.
The killer mermaid genre is not quite as slender as you might imagine (and we’re not even counting the controversial alternative ending to Splash in which a bloodlust-crazed Daryl Hannah beheads Tom Hanks with her tail). But it certainly isn’t large enough for us to ignore the appearance of a clip for Epic Pictures’ new horror film Nymph, about two young women who go on a Mediterranean vacation and uncover the watery lair of a killer mermaid beneath an abandoned military fortress.
A killer mermaid? A watery lair? Other things? What’s not to love!
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.
