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.

“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.

The Toronto Film Festival has announced its lineup for the event’s Midnight Madness section, which includes the world premieres of Eli Roth‘s The Green Inferno and All Cheerleaders Die from directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson. The schedule for Midnight Madness, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, also boasts the Karen Gillan-starring Oculus, Hong Kong director Juno Mak’s Rigor Mortis, and Almost Human, the trailer for which you can see 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
There is a saying in Britain: “It does exactly what it says on the tin.” This colloquialism derives from ’90s-era TV ads for a brand of quick-drying woodstain — which did indeed prominently feature the phrase “quick-drying woodstain” on the tins — but could equally apply to the new U.K. horror film, Cockneys vs Zombies. Starring Harry Treadaway (The Lone Ranger), Michelle Ryan (Bionic Woman), Alan Ford (Snatch), Tony Gardner (The Thick of It) and the late, great British TV icon Richard Briers, the movie finds a group of London-living folks facing off against a bunch of ghouls who aren’t technically “living” at all.
In the new monster movie Beneath, a group of boat-trapped teens are menaced by a giant fish — although, as things go from bad to worse to whatever-comes-after-worse, it becomes clear the real monsters are the kids themselves rather than their piscine predator.
“That’s the point of the film!” laughs Beneath director Larry Fessenden, whose previous credits include 2001’s Wendigo and 2006’s The Last Winter. “That’s a little bit about my obsession that people have been parenting wrong. I tried to show some compassion for the characters, but they’re all just in for themselves and it leads to a bad end. The fish is just doing what he does!”
Starring Daniel Zovatto, Bonnie Dennison, and Mark Margolis (a.k.a. Tio Salamanca from Breaking Bad), Beneath is now playing in select cinemas (including New York’s IFC Center) and is available on VOD. The movie will be screened on Chiller TV this fall.
Larry Fessenden talks much more about Beneath below.

This fall, your TV will boldly go where no TV has gone before.
EW can exclusively reveal that J.J. Abrams’s Star Trek Into Darkness will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and On Demand on September 10, 2013. A digital download of the film will be available three weeks earlier, on August 20.
“I’m thrilled with how everything looks and sounds,” Abrams said in a statement. “We also have some really fun behind-the-scenes special features that we shot on the Red [Epic cameras] and created entirely in-house at Bad Robot. They really look amazing and unlike anything I’ve seen on DVD or Blu-ray before.”
Those special features include making-of shorts about creating the Red Planet and the Klingon home world of Kronos, as well as a sit-down with stars Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch — and a segment called “The Enemy of My Enemy,” which explores “how, and why, the identity of the film’s true villain was kept a mystery to the very end.”
