Sign Up for The Fear Project

Dread Central - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 10:15

Word of a new horror anthology film has come our way called The Fear Project, and we have your first look at the trailer for this coming in 2015 fright fest! Read on for that and more details. Go on! You know you wouldn't be here if you had something else to do!

The Fear Project will feature four tales of terror from directors Alex Deck, Owen Mulligan of DeadFi, Dion Cavallaro and Paul Thomas of Freeze Frame Films (The Eidolon State), Douglas A. Plomitallo of ScaredStiffTV, and Kenny Collins of Enter Viral Media.

The Fear Project is a Canadian/American/Australian found footage horror anthology in the vein of V/H/S. It aims to take the idea started by the geniuses behind that film and turn it on its head, presenting gripping psychological horror tales which have a strong contrast to the gory, often overtly violent tones of V/H/S.

Synopsis
After their friend becomes the latest victim in a chain of throat slashing murders, two young men go to the scene of the crime to investigate. While there, they discover a room lined wall-to-wall with old television sets and a plethora of terrifying videos, each containing a piece of the puzzle. What they ultimately discover will change their lives forever.

Exclusive Interview: Jaime Pressly Talks A Haunted House 2 Too!

Dread Central - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 10:00

In A Haunted House 2, Jaime Pressly plays Megan – the lighter side of an interracial couple with more than the usual problems. A mother of two, she and her kids move in with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) – but little does she know his possessed ex-girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) is living right next door...

And there’s nothing worse than a scorned demonic woman.

Pressly is no stranger to the horror genre (her first starring role was in the straight to video sequel to Poison Ivy, back in 1997), but she’s mostly known for comedy (the actress won two Emmys for her performance as Joy in "My Name Is Earl") – so what could be more perfect than mixing the two for A Haunted House 2?

We had a chance to sit down with Ms. Pressly at a press junket in Beverly Hills and get the scary scoop, 1:1.

Dread Central: Tell me a little about how you came on to this project with Marlon.

Jaime Pressly: Well, I mean they basically approached me with it, to see if I wanted to do it and I read it, met with the producers, and director. And of course Marlon. Marlon and I have known each other for fifteen years, so this was a great opportunity to finally work together. And you know, that was that. Shoots in L.A., so I didn’t have to take my son out of school. I was all for it.

DC: So for horror fans, what can they expect? I know there is a lot of parodies in this one. What are some of your favorites that they kind of send up?

JP: I think just in general because they were really good at, Marlon and Rick who wrote it were really good about touching on every single horror film that was made. So I mean, it kind of spans every generation because you can look back at The Exorcist and then you can look at the ones like The Conjuring. Like… we completely rebuilt the set of The Conjuring. So we have the identical set to that for one part of it. Anyway, I think the greatest part is though we spoof all the horror films and it’s a comedy we still scare the crap out of people. Everybody gets scared and then you turn around and ten seconds later they are laughing because they realize, ‘Oh My God they just scared me with something that I have seen a million times in films’ and now you’re laughing because we pointed out what you were just afraid of. You know what I mean. It’s the stereotypical thing that scares you all the time for some reason and we point it out. And to the fact that it’s all the stereotypes we make fun of in general with race and what ever else. It’s pretty funny.

DC: I interviewed Essence on the set, she is so sweet. But she doesn’t like you much in the movie though, right?

JP: No, but you don’t know… Well, my character doesn’t know. My character is oblivious to everything.

DC: So, do you have any interaction with the creepy doll? (I saw her on set, great replica) Everyone seems to love the Abigail doll, which is of course, a play on Annabelle from The Conjuring.

JP: You know, the person that interacts with her the most is Marlon. But we did have her in our room. You know, it’s again… my character is oblivious. My character didn’t realize that she was turning her head or watching us during our sex scene. My character had no idea until way after the fact that she (the doll) knew what was going on. So its mainly Marlon who interacts with her.

DC: He has got such a sense of comedic timing and that’s also really important in horror, so can you tell me what it was like to act with him in some of those wacky yet scary scenes?

JP: It is always great when working on a comedy, comedy is my first love, and to be able to work with somebody who is uninhibited as I am when it comes to comedy and unafraid and quick and you know on their toes and ready at all times it makes for a really good team. And he and I work really well together. We both are really unafraid to push the envelope. We kind of loved to push the envelope and make people a little uncomfortable at times. That’s part of what comedy is about, laughing at yourself. And he and I both love doing that. It was really great to team up with somebody who likes to do comedy the same way that I do. We work really well together. He is an incredible comic. He has great timing and he would do a twenty-minute take if you would let him. (laughter) He would just keep going and going and going...

The sequel to A Haunted House catches back up with Malcolm (Wayans), who is trying to get a fresh start after having to exorcise demons out of his ex. However, moving into a beautiful home with his new girlfriend and her two children does nothing to stop the paranormal — or the humor.

Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle, and Cedric The Entertainer star.

Open Road Films is releasing the spoof, which is directed by Michael Tiddes and co-written by Wayans and Rick Alvarez, on April 18th.

Synopsis
Crossing new lines and breaking old barriers, A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is the sequel to the hilarious box office hit starring Marlon Wayans as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend and her two children. After moving into their dream home, Malcolm is once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. With spine-tingling tension and hilarious punch-lines, A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and shows that this time… it’s not just the house that’s haunted!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 22:18

Sony is looking to take a bite out of that delicious, rotten pie that games like DayZ and Rust have been gorging themselves on for some time now. Their first stab at carving out a slice out of the post-apocalyptic survival simulator market to call their own is H1Z1, an MMO where the undead aren’t quite as dangerous as your fellow humanity.

If you like hunger meters and seeing how dark people can get when its Apocalypse Rules, H1Z1 was made with you in mind. Read on for some screenshots and a bit of gameplay footage.

H1Z1 will arrive first on PC. No word yet on whether or not it will come to PS4.

[Interview] 'Oculus' Star Karen Gillan On What Frightened Her While Shooting and Her Favorite Horror Films!!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 21:07

Relativity’s Oculus (review), directed by Mike Flanagan hits theaters in wide release this Friday, April 11th. You’ve seen the trailers by now and if, based on those, you even remotely think this is the movie for you, it probably is. It very much delivers on that aesthetic.

I recently sat down with the film’s lead, Karen Gillan (pictured above; “Doctor Who”, Guardians Of The Galaxy) in Austin, TX. I found her to be an energetic and engaging conversationalist, even though we had very little time to speak due to the hustle and bustle of SXSW. Still, based on her performance in this alone, she’s going places.

The story centers on a murder that left two children orphans with authorities charging the brother while his sister believed that the true culprit was a haunted antique mirror. Now completely rehabilitated and in his twenties, the brother is ready to move on but his sister is determined to prove that the haunted mirror was responsible for destroying their family.” Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Brenton Thwaites, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan also star.

Check it out below!

When you read this script what was the first thing that went through your head?

[laughs] That there was a 13 page monologue I had to deal with! It was actually a lot harder to learn than if it was a conversational thing of if it had some emotional logic to it. But it wasn’t that, it was a presentation of facts. So that was a challenge. Also I just loved the story and the way it was told. I loved the two timelines. I loved that we got to make a scary horror film that’s a real character piece. Ultimately the stuff we shot was just two people in a room, really.

Did you two have time to prepare? Sometimes you don’t on these things.

Oh yeah, we rehearsed like crazy. I mean we just went to town on that. We just didn’t have any time when we were shooting, so the only way to get everything was to block it beforehand.

It’s a very technical tightrope you’re walking, I imagine it’s easy for an actor to get lost in all of it.

We needed refreshers constantly. That’s where [director] Mike Flanagan came in. He would let us know where we were in relation to everything that was happening in terms of VFX or the story. It starts off normal and gradually gets more explosive until it all comes crashing down. So it was important that we all knew emotionally where we were. Without that there would have been no logical progression.

Was there anything in the script that made you doubt if you could do the film?

Probably just that monologue. To be fair, I jumped into it and I was like, “I’m going to go for it and accept the challenge!” But there was a moment when I was working with my dialect coach and I remembered that I was going to have to talk for 10 minutes straight, in one take, in an accent that was not my own.

But content wise you were okay?

Yeah! I’m pretty into gory films and horror films! You know, it’s scary to put kids in that situation, but they had the best time.

Well now you have to tell me what your favorite horror films are.

I love horror films and grew up on them as a teenager. That’s all I would pretty much watch. Scream is my favorite. I just love that it’s directly addressing the genre and telling us what the rules are. And then executing them all as described. I loved The Exorcist, I used to watch that on my own in bed which was a terrible idea when I was younger. What else? I loved all the cheesy slashers like I Know What You Did Last Summer and there’s this one we used to watch called Death Of A Cheerleader starring Tori Spelling. I think it was a TV movie but we managed to get it on video somehow and we would watch it all the time.

The other reigning family in town is made up of werewolves, lead by Julian Duval (guest star Sean Faris).

Renegade Kid showed a bit more of their ambitious horror game Cult County today with a tour of one of the game’s levels. It’s very much a work in progress, but the footage does do a good job of giving us a feel for the atmosphere. It’s a hot, dead world, and I’m sure that dust is hiding all sorts of horrors that are just waiting to be exposed.

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 18:05

Back in January, we reported on a possible zombie-themed MMO based on the H1Z1 hoax that took over the Internet a few years back. Now, that game is official. It even has an eerie teaser site.

We don’t know much about it yet, other than it will be a post-apocalyptic MMO from Sony Online Entertainment. We’ll know more when the game is revealed — with gameplay footage! — tonight at 5pm PST. Apparently, a fully playable build isn’t far off, so this game might not be too far away.

@Jedi_Skote you can play it yourself soon. and by play I mean play fully.

'The Last Of Us Remastered' Confirmed For PS4

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 17:03

'The Grudge' Re-Re-Reboot Will Carry New Mythology

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:57

Reboots are like a virus infecting all of Hollywood. No, that’s not the plot of the new The Grudge

It was announced a few weeks back that Ghost House Pictures and Good Universe will relaunch The Grudge franchise with Midnight Meat Train scribe Jeff Buhler to draft the reboot. This will be the second time they do so, if you count the Japanese remake (Ju-On: The Grudge is a remake of the made-for-TV horror movie, Ju-On).

An interview with Buhler popped up where he talked about his starting point for the new Ju-On film, and how he plans to approach it.

We’re not approaching this as a remake of the Sarah Michelle Gellar film or a remake of the Ju-On film,” stated Buhler. “This is pushing the mythology forward while keeping the concepts and spirit of those movies, yet finding a new way to tell a story within that world, which is exciting.

The film will also be home to “new characters, new ghost, and a new mythology,” he adds. “I’m not really at a liberty to say anything more than that for obvious reasons, as we are still in the scripting process. I think letting fans of the original series know that we are not going back to (the character of) Kayako and trying to mine what’s already been mined is important (though). We are still very early in the process.

The 2004 pic starred Sarah Michelle Gellar, cost around $10 million, grossed $187 million worldwide and hatched a sequel. It was based on the Japanese horror thriller Ju-On by Takashi Shimizu. Gellar played a nurse in Tokyo who was afflicted by a curse that created uncontrollable rage and was pretty much fatal.

    'Evil Breakfast Dead Club' To Parody the 1980's!

    bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:46

    Infinite Spectrum Production is getting clever with their new indie, Evil Breakfast Dead Club (well, that’s a mouthful).

    Kevin Phipps directs, sources tell Bloody Disgusting, from a screenplay by Jon Bonnell.

    We’re told that the film follows a group of rule-breaking teens who have a run-in with teenager possessing demons. The pitch is sort of funny: They broke the rules, they touched each other, and they swallowed each others’ souls. Get it?

    While you may find it annoying, it’s not, because this is a parody of 80′s films ranging from The Breakfast Club to The Evil Dead. Cool!

    Check out the following spoof made back in 2009 that inspired the feature…

    Full Cast Reveal - See Who's Going Sundowning on M. Night Shyamalan

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:25

    The full cast has been revealed for M. Night Shyamalan's latest foray into the world of the spooky known as Sundowning, and we have all the details you need minus the twist. That will come, as always, at the end.

    The pillar of journalistic integrity known as IMDb has posted the cast (so take this with a grain of salt).

    In addition to the previously announced Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, it seems Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea, Shawn Gonzalez, Richard Barlow, Steve Annan, and Michael Mariano have all been added to the cast.

    Black Swan's costumer Amy Westcott and production designer Therese DePerez are working on the film alongside French cinematographer Maryse Alberti (The Wrestler).

    Hahn plays a single mother whose two young children visit their grandparents… and things go very wrong. Oxenbould plays her son, who is protective of his sister.

    No other plot details were immediately available, as Shyamalan prefers to surprise his audience. However, “sundowning” is described as a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings.

    New Poster for The Demolisher Isn't Monkeying Around

    Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 16:14

    We first told you about the "hyper-violent" new film from Latefox Pictures entitled The Demolisher back in February and today we have a brand spanking new bit of teaser art for you cats to chew on! Dig it!

    Check out the goods below via Bloody Disgusting.

    From the Press Release:
    Latefox Pictures will be slamming into production with The Demolisher, scheduled to begin shooting in late spring 2014.

    Directed by Gabriel Carrer (In the House of Flies), The Demolisher chronicles the story of a man named Bruce (Ry Barrett; The Drownsman), an ordinary repairman tormented by a crippling sense of responsibility for his disabled wife, Samantha (Tianna Nori; Clean Break), a former policewoman and survivor of a gang-related assault. Bruce’s increasing hyper-sensitivity to the injustice suffered by his wife steers him down a dark path of vigilantism. With his rapidly disintegrating mental health, paranoia, and overwhelming sense of condemnation, Bruce channels his inner rage, punishing a young woman, Marie (Jessica Vano; The Unabomber Manifesto), and finding refuge in a world of intense violence.

    The Demolisher is both a character study and a psychological examination of trauma, resulting in an unapologetic portrayal of what can happen when a fragile mind is pushed too far. “The film is complex and character-driven, dealing with an outpouring of raw emotion,” said director Carrer, also one of the film’s producers. “It delicately juggles our sympathetic nature and reactions to chance encounters with the dangerous and addicted intoxication of violence. The film’s narrative pertains to the film industry, or any industry for that matter, and the level of abuse that can be endured,” he concludes.

    Award-winning cinematographer Martin Buzora (Neverlost) will capture the film’s fresh hyper-visual aesthetic. Along with Carrer, The Demolisher is produced by Barrett, AK Lamm, Duane Frey, Christian Burgess, Martin Buzora, Nathan Hawkins, and Andrew Wood.

    For further information, visit the official The Demolisher Facebook page, which will be regularly updated with concept artwork and sneak previews from the upcoming soundtrack, produced worldwide by talented and upcoming electronic music producers and remixers.
