In a bold, new approach to bringing iconic horror films to life during “Halloween Horror Nights,” Universal Studios Hollywood will break new ground with the introduction of its first ever 3D horror-comedy maze, “This is the End 3D,” based on 2013’s hit movie starring James Franco, Seth Rogen Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson, beginning on Friday, September 18, 2015.

The end of the world will begin as guests head to the ultimate A-list party at James Franco’s new Hollywood Hills home, before the Apocalypse strikes and they find themselves trapped in a life-and-death struggle against the demons of the underworld. With the fate of humanity at the crossroads of heaven and hell, “This is the End 3D” will offer defining moments for those guests brave enough to tempt the devil as their destiny hangs in the balance to be damned for eternity or raptured to heaven engulfed in a sea of blue light.

The popular event brings together the sickest minds in horror to immerse guests in a living, breathing, three-dimensional world of terror.

Alchemy – who has already nabbed films such as Rob Zombie’s 31 and Bernard King’s Frankenstein – has acquired North American distribution rights to the French-language horror pic Evolution, helmed by Lucile Hadzihalilovic, writes Deadline.

It has been set to world premiere in the Vanguard section at next month’s Toronto Film Festival. Hadzihalilovic wrote the screenplay with Alanté Kavaïté and Geoff Cox and serves as Hadzihalilovic’s follow-up to her 2004 indie hit Innocence.

In the pic, 10-year-old Nicolas lives with his mother in a village on a remote island inhabited solely by women and young boys. In a hospital overlooking the ocean, all the boys are subjected to a mysterious medical treatment. Only Nicolas questions what is happening around him. He senses that his mother is lying to him, and is determined to find out what she does with the other women at night, on the beach. What he discovers is the beginning of a nightmare into which he is helplessly drawn. Max Brebant, Roxane Duran and Julie-Marie Parmentier star.

Dark Sky Haunting Home Video With ‘Para Elisa’

bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 16:26

A job at a magnificent house owned by a famous musician seems too good to be true – and it is – in the tension-filled horror film Para Elisa. The acclaimed new Spanish film comes to DVD and VOD on September 1, 2015 from Dark Sky Films.

Desperate for some post-graduation cash, party girl Ana (Ona Casamiquela, Eva) answers a babysitting ad. She arrives for an interview at the elegant home of Diamantina (Luisa Gavasa, Flesh Memories), a former child prodigy pianist who is now an eccentric old woman who collects antique toys and dolls. Ana is disturbed by Diamantina’s odd behavior and horrified to discover that her child, Elisa (Ana Turpin, Bandolero), is not a child but rather a deranged woman her own age. Before Ana really understands what’s happening, she finds herself trapped in the house and made to serve as Elisa’s new toy – a toy that like many others before it may well be broken.

Debuting writer-director Juanra Fernandez crafts a breathless horror with Para Elisa, a film that plays out with violent intensity and escalates to a nightmarish climax that will leave viewers asking if people are just things to be played with.

New ‘Attack On Titan’ Trailer Is Pure Insanity

bloody disgusting - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 16:17

We’ve been pretty vocal about our excitement of the upcoming Attack On Titan live action adaptation, which is being split into two parts. Today, that excitement only ramps up as a new trailer has been released and now we get to see the Titans in all their horrific glory!

The trailer below is overflowing with action, violence, gore, disturbing visuals, and omni-directional mobility gear flying! You even go inside the mouth of a Titan! If this doesn’t get you hyped for these films, I honestly don’t know what will.

The synopsis for Attack On Titan:

The sudden arrival of the Titans–mysterious, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour human beings one after the other–brings mankind to the brink of extinction. Fast-forward more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend themselves against the Titans. Yet once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 50 meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter. The protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to a life confined behind these walls. Nothing I do would make a difference, he thought. But when he joins the “Outer Wall Restoration Team” set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend and someone he had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which had become rare and precious, before getting past the waves of Titans to plug the gaping hole in the wall, with humanity’s survival on the line. Will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?

Attack On Titan is being split into two films. The first film will hit Japanese theaters on August 8th and the second film, which bears the subtitle End Of The World, premieres on September 19th. Both are directed by Shinji Higuchi, who is also attached as director of Toho’s Godzilla reboot.
