Filmmakers don’t get much more fantastic — in every sense — than Terry Gilliam, the agreeably bonkers auteur whose filmography includes Time Bandits, Brazil, and Twelve Monkeys. So it seems appropriate Fantastic Fest has decided to close this year’s event with his new movie, The Zero Theorem. The Christoph Waltz-starring film, which concerns a reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst, will screen at the Austin, Tx.-based genre festival on September 26.

This October, the pitter-patter of tiny feet will once again be an occasion for screams of terror rather than squeals of joy when horror sequel Curse of Chucky premieres on Blu-Ray and DVD. The sixth entry in the Child’s Play franchise — but the first since 2004′s Seed of Chucky — the movie once again finds the great Brad Dourif voicing the titular, possessed, and homicidal doll and leading a cast which also includes his daughter Fiona (True Blood), A. Martinez (Longmire), Danielle Bisutti, and Brennan Elliott.
Carrie just wants to be normal.
Unfortunately, that’s not in the cards for the telekinetic teenage loner. Not when your abusive mother tells you that all the kids are going to laugh at you, shames you with bible verses (and some non-textual religious zealotry), and occasionally locks you in a closet as punishment.
Chloe Moretz stars as the tragic title character in Kimberly Peirce’s update of Stephen King’s novel and Brian De Palma’s 1976 film. Julianne Moore gets the lucky task of playing her psychotic mother.
Take a look at the latest blood-soaked trailer for Carrie after the jump.
Director Adam Wingard has received rave reviews for his R-rated, home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next, which screened at several film festivals over the past couple of years and will be released August 23. But his often gore-drenched creative sensibility — and twisted sense of humor — is not everyone’s cup of Darjeeling. In the spring of 2007, for instance, the then just the 24-year-old Wingard appeared on the premiere episode of Fox TV’s On The Lot, a much-hyped but now little-remembered, Steven Spielberg-produced filmmakers’ competition with the first prize of a million-dollar development deal at Dreamworks. As Wingard recalls, he was immediately put off by the reality show vibe of the televised contest and decided to self-sabotage. So in an unaired segment, he pitched a movie about a giant, skinless, suburbia-terrorizing dog named Roger to the show’s three judges: Brett Ratner, Carrie Fisher, and Pretty Woman director Garry Marshall. “I kept emphasizing how violent the film needed to be, and I was doing a dance as I was pitching,” says Wingard, who, it is probably worth noting, stands 6 feet 4 inches tall. “The whole thing was like a performance art piece. I was shocked they didn’t use it because I went out of my way to make an ass out of myself on national television. It was gold!” Needless to say, the Alabama-raised Wingard did not progress to the next round. “I don’t remember what the judges said,” he chuckles, “but I think they were really disappointed in me.” READ FULL STORY
How terrifying is the new home invasion movie You’re Next? Very. It is also extremely funny, although a new clip from director Adam Wingard’s film — like its trailer — concentrates on the project’s potentially bone-splintering elements rather than its rib-tickling ones.
You’re Next stars Sharni Vinson (Step Up 3D), AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die), and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator) and hits cinemas Aug. 23. You can check out the new clip and the film’s trailer below.

Sean Young talks about the new horror movie 'Jug Face' (and why she may boycott the next 'Blade Runner' movie)
In the new horror movie Jug Face, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, and Lauren Ashley Carter play members of a backwoods cult which sacrifices people to a pit-dwelling monster. Sounds creepily intriguing? Indeed it does. And we haven’t even mentioned the ghosts. Or the incest. Or, for that matter, the artisanal jug-making.
“I got a call from Mark Duplass, and he’s like, ‘Hey, Ken, do you want to be in this movie about a monster that comes out of your ass?’” Marino told EW earlier this year, just before the film’s premiere at South by Southwest. “I was like, ‘Where do I sign up? And when’s the fitting?’”
Bad Milo! (which also stars Gillian Jacobs, Peter Stormare, and Patrick Warburton) will be available on demand from August 29 and arrives in theaters Oct. 4. But(t) you can see a red-band preview of the Jacob Vaughan-directed film below.

There are a number of Frankenstein-themed films in the pipeline, from the Aaron Eckhart-starring I, Frankenstein to Guillermo del Toro’s long-gestating adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic novel. But in terms of sheer out-and-out derangement, it’s hard to imagine any of these projects topping Frankenstein’s Army, which is in select cinemas and available on VOD beginning July 26.
Set in Europe during World War II, this found-footage film concerns a battalion of Russian soldiers who find themselves battling a group of half-man, half-machine “zombots” created by the great-great-grandson of Baron von Frankenstein. Directed by Richard Raaphorst and starring Karel Roden (Hellboy) as the Baron’s insane descendant, the result has to be seen to be believed. Those with a strong stomach can check out an exclusive clip below. READ FULL STORY
