Where would Halloween season be without Edgar Allan Poe? Still positioned in October, of course, but with a much less creepy hold on the month.

In the new horror-comedy Summer of Blood, Onur Tukel plays a schlubby, self-obsessed Brooklynite called Erik who, after rejecting his girlfriend’s marriage proposal, becomes a veritable sex magnet when he is bitten by a vampire. The result is partly a Woody Allen-esque comedy about commitment—and partly an out-and-out bloodbath.
“If you’re making a horror film, you have to make it about fear,” says Tukel, who also wrote and directed the movie. “I’m 42 years old right now and my biggest fear is commitment and marriage. So I thought I would make a film about those things.”
In the new, much-buzzed-about horror film The Babadook, a children’s book comes to life and turns the life of single mother Amelia (Essie Davis) into a living hell. Given that premise, we thought twice about debuting the poster for the film, which opens in cinemas Nov. 28, lest a similar fate befall us here at EW Towers.
But, hey, you only live (and die!) once.
Community creator Dan Harmon is a comedy heavyweight. He’s also something of an actual heavyweight. (I write this as a man who could stand to lose a pound or 20 myself.) But did that stop the mercurial, mirth-creating madman attempting to crowd surf when he took his Harmontown podcast on the road in early 2013? It most certainly did not, as the exclusive clip below from the tour-documenting, and utterly fascinating, new film Harmontown very much makes clear.
Stephen King may be one of our most prolific writers, but he tends to let others get the ol’ finger blisters when it comes to adapting his tales for the big screen. One exception? The forthcoming, Peter Askin-directed A Good Marriage, for which Uncle Stevie did decide to pen the screenplay version of his novella.
Lili Simmons (True Detective) and David Arquette (Scream) have joined the cast of the “ultraviolent” Western Bone Tomahawk. Kathryn Morris (Cold Case), Evan Jonigkeit (Girls), Sean Young (Blade Runner), and Sid Haig (The Devil’s Rejects) will also appear in this movie from novelist-turned-filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, alongside previously announced actors Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins.
Ever had one of those days when you wake up in a hospital following a car accident to discover the cops believe you killed several of your friends and that a surgeon has mistakenly grafted a Nazi-zombie arm onto your right elbow? Who hasn’t, right? Regardless, that is the situation facing Martin (Vegar Hoel) in the new horror film Dead Snow 2: Red Vs. Dead. Like 2009’s original, undead-Nazi tale Dead Snow, this sequel is directed by Tommy Wirkola (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters) and finds Hoel’s Martin once again facing down Ørjan Gamst’s dreaded—and deaded—Colonel Herzog.
Many children would love it if their books came alive, filled as they often are with princesses and unicorns and so forth. But what if the tome in question concerned a terrifying, German expressionism-inspired monster? No, my friends, that would not be so pleasant as 7-year-old Samuel (Noah Wiseman) and his mother Amelia (Essie Davis) discover in forthcoming horror film The Babadook.
Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring) and Matthew Fox (Lost) have joined the Western film Bone Tomahawk, alongside previously announced cast members Kurt Russell and Richard Jenkins. The film starts on Monday in southern California and is written and directed by novelist and first-time filmmaker S. Craig Zahler.
Director Bryan Singer will officially return to the X-Men franchise. EW has confirmed that Singer, who directed X-Men, X2, and this summer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, has just closed a deal to direct the latest installment in the Marvel mutant series, X-Men: Apocalypse. It had been unclear whether or not this would be the case after Singer was accused in April of sexual abuse by former actor Michael Egan; Egan eventually dropped his suit in late August.
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 27, 2016 and Singer told EW in the spring that it would follow younger versions of Xavier (James McAvoy), Erik (Michael Fassbender), and Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), and perhaps the additions of Nightcrawler and Gambit (Channing Tatum has been reportedly set as the Cajun hero). Said Singer, “I’m excited because I want to start introducing familiar characters at different ages and also explore the ‘80s.”
