'The Apparition' director Todd Lincoln talks about his new horror movie -- and terrorizing 'Twilight' fans


Ever since he was a horror movie-obsessed kid growing up in Tulsa, Okla., Todd Lincoln has dreamed about unleashing hell onto the big screen. But the writer-director has spent much of the past decade discovering the real-life horrors of development hell as a succession of projects — including a reboot of The Fly and an adaptation of the comic book series Hack/Slash — came to naught. “You’d have the friends and the family and everybody come up and say, ‘Hey, maybe you should think about something else,’” Lincoln admits.


Austin's Fantastic Fest adds 'Sinister,' 'Looper,' and Halloween haunted house doc 'The American Scream' to lineup

Fantastic Fest has announced that the Ethan Hawke-starring horror movie Sinister, director Rian Johnson’s time travel thriller Looper, and The American Scream — a documentary about homemade haunted houses directed by Best Worst Movie filmmaker Michael Paul Stephenson — will all be playing at next month’s celebration of genre movies in Austin, Texas. Johnson and Stephenson are set to attend the festival, as are Sinister director Scott Derrickson, producer Jason Blum and writer C. Robert Cargill.

Other new additions to the event include anthology movies The ABCs of Death, Doomsday Book and the world premiere of Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, which will be attended by Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.

This second wave of films lengthens a lineup which already boasts opening night film Dredd 3D, the Shining documentary Room 237, and the horror-comedy Cockneys vs Zombies.

Fantastic Fest takes place at the Alamo Drafthouse’s South Lamar location, Sept. 20-27.

'Sexy French girl' becomes giant, disgusting [spoiler] in teaser trailer for new horror movie -- NSFW VIDEO

What do you we know about French women in movies? Well, they tend to be hot and uninhibited. And, in the teaser trailer below, one particular Gallic girl turns into a giant…

Actually, why don’t you check out the clip — if you’re a horror fan with a high tolerance for grotesquerie — and we’ll talk more afterwards.


'Antiviral' trailer: Get infected by Brandon Cronenberg's debut movie -- VIDEO

Writer-director Brandon Cronenberg is clearly not worried about being compared to his father, horror legend David Cronenberg. Or, if he is, then the guy has some very worrying days ahead.

Cronenberg Jr.’s debut movie Antiviral looks to be a very, well, “Cronenbergian” tale of sick celebrities and the rabid fans determined to infect themselves with the diseases their idols are suffering from. Certainly the film’s new trailer features several tropes which will be familiar to aficionados of Cronenberg Sr.’s early, gore-drenched output such as Shivers/They Came From Within, Rabid, and The Brood. Disease-oriented plot? Check. Fictional medical facility? Check. Appearance by Brood and Dead Zone actor Nicholas Campbell? Check. General air of clinical (in every sense) gross-out horror? Checkity-check-check-check.

'Cockneys vs Zombies': Check out the horror-comedy's gore-drenched, red band trailer

According to tradition, a “Cockney” is a someone who was born within earshot of the bells of London’s historic St Mary-le-Bow church. Meanwhile, a “zombie” — at least since George A. Romero’s undead classic Night of the Living Dead — is a revived corpse who enjoys luncheoning on the innards of the still-breathing. Put them together and what do you get? That’s right, a revived corpse who was born within the sound of “Bow bells.” And the new British horror comedy Cockneys vs Zombies, which stars Michelle Ryan (the Bionic Woman revival), Alan Ford (Snatch), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger, cult TV show The Avengers), and the-largely-unknown-in-America-but-absolutely-awesome Richard Briers.

Inevitably, comparisons will be made between Cockneys vs Zombies — which receives its U.S. debut at this September’s Fantastic Fest — and Edgar Wright’s Shaun of the Dead, a high-water mark of the Londoners-versus-undead-lurchers genre. And it is worth pointing out that Briers’ costar in the long-running ’80s Brit-com Ever Decreasing Circles, Penelope Wilton, played Simon Pegg’s mum in Shaun. (The pair’s fellow Ever Decreasing cast member Peter Egan should feel free to start rehearsing the line “I’ve been bitten by a blinkin’ zombie!” round about…now.) On the other hand, the new red-band Cockneys trailer does make it look like a (foul-mouthed and gore-drenched) hoot.

Take a “butcher’s” (Cockney rhyming slang: “butcher’s hook”/”look”) and see if you agree.

The festival runs until September 27.


Dean Devlin on the recently announced 'Godzilla' reboot: 'I know I screwed up my Godzilla'

One of the biggest surprises at Comic-Con earlier this month was 
Legendary Pictures' splashy debut of its reboot of the Godzilla franchise, complete with a jaw-dropping concept reel and the introduction of the film's director, Gareth Edwards. The British filmmaker, whose only previous feature directing credit is the indie thriller Monsters, wasted no time making clear his film would not be a retread of the 1998 big-budget remake of Godzilla. That movie, from writer-producer Dean Devlin and writer-director Roland Emmerich, was widely derided for being too silly and cheesy"We're going to take it seriously," Edwards told the Comic-Con crowd of his version of the Japanese monster movie staple. "It's very grounded [and]


When EW caught up with Devlin at the Saturn Awards on Thursday night, we asked him what his thoughts were when he heard about Legendary’s new take on the venerable fire-breathing, city-demolishing giant lizard. READ FULL STORY

'Rise of the Planet of the Apes,' 'Super 8,' 'Breaking Bad,' and 'Fringe' win big at the Saturn Awards

Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Super 8, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2 may have been skunked when it came time to hand out Academy Awards, but they cleaned up but good at the Saturn Awards, which honor the best in science fiction, fantasy, and horror. At a ceremony Thursday night in Burbank, Calif., Rise of the Planet of the Apes won Best Science Fiction Film, as well as Best Supporting Actor (for Andy Serkis’ motion capture performance as the sentient ape Caesar), and Best Visual Effects. Super 8‘s director (J.J. Abrams), composer (Michael Giacchino), and young star (Joel Courtney) all earned Saturn trophies. And the final Harry Potter film took home the Best Fantasy Film Award.

In the television category, Fringe won best network TV show, Breaking Bad best syndicated or cable TV show, and The Walking Dead best TV presentation (a category for anything lasting 10 episodes or less). Director and actor Frank Oz, and actor James Remar both won Life Career Awards; writer-director Drew Goddard (The Cabin in the Woods) won the Filmmakers Showcase Award; and The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman won the first ever Innovator Award. (Check out a full list of the awards at the end of this story.) READ FULL STORY

Doug Liman attached to direct Jack Finney's 'Time and Again'

Lionsgate has confirmed to EW that they have acquired the rights to the 1970 Jack Finney novel Time and Again, news first reported by Variety‘s Showblitz. The time travelling adventure follows New York illustrator Simon Morley, who — by way of a military experiment — goes back in time to 1882 and falls in love with a woman named Julia. Simon must decide whether to stay in the past with the woman he loves, or return to the present where he belongs.

The novel has been bounced around Hollywood for a number of years — Robert Redford even tried to get a project off the ground in the ‘90s. But with Doug Liman attached to direct, and both sci-fi (the forthcoming Tom Cruise vehicle All You Need is Kill) and comedy (Swingers) in his back catalogue, Time and Again is in good hands.
