The first teaser trailer for Europa Report has hit the Internet, and if you're down for a quickie to get you through Hump Day, then this should more than suffice. Check it out, and look for more on this one soon!
Sebastian Cordero’s sci-fi horror flick Europa Report stars District 9's Sharlto Copley alongside Michael Nyqvist, Daniel Wu, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo, and Karolina Wydra.
Penned by Philip Gelatt, the film tells of "a group of astronauts, handpicked from around the world, who make the arduous journey to Jupiter’s frigid, glacial moon Europa in search of extraterrestrial life. The only thing more intimidating and unpredictable than the trip itself is what the team will encounter upon arrival…"
You know we were just thinking to ourselves the other day... "You know what we need? We need Cabin Fever: Patient Zero to reboot the franchise and kick off a new trilogy!" Okay, so we weren't actually thinking that but apparently Voltage Pictures is.
Screen Daily reports that Voltage is handling Cabin Fever sales at Cannes, along with the original film's producer Evan Astrowsky, and they're developing at least two more films in addition to Patient Zero to create a new trilogy. Hooray!
Sean Astin and Brano Eaton are starring in the pic, which also has Jillian Murray and Ryan Donowho as part of the cast. Mitch Ryan, meanwhile, has stepped into the shoes vacated by Ben Hollingsworth, whose schedule was crunched when he booked a role on The CW’s midseason show "Cult".
The story kicks off when a bachelor party cruise in the Caribbean unexpectedly runs ashore on a medical-research island and a deadly virus is unleashed. The passengers must struggle to find a way to survive before their own demons and the flesh-eating bacteria consumes them all.
Lydia will play a wide-eyed research grad student who is aligned with the film’s antagonist (Astin).
Comic book artist Kaare Andrews is directing from a screenplay penned by Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher).
The year was 1995 and I was home, excited to see a little movie called Castle Freak. Why? Because the killer was insane looking. Then I saw it... his severed cock-nub. I've never been the same. Now to be able to see said cock-nub in full 1080p? Oh, friggin' my!
That's right, kids! Full Moon Entertainment has unleashed two of its most infamous films from director Stuart Gordon, Castle Freak and the 1991 lunacy laden flick The Pit and the Pendulum. Believe me you haven't lived until you've seen Lance Henriksen as Torquemada. It's almost as disturbing as a 1980p cock-nub. To order them now just hit up Full Moon Direct.
The Pit and the Pendulum Synopsis
Directed by Stuart Gordon and starring Lance Henriksen, Stephen Lee, Oliver Reed and William J. Norris.
In the quest to save souls, the Spanish Inquisition will stop at nothing and knows no boundaries for evil. Under the direction of Torquemada (LANCE HENRIKSEN - "Alien," "Pumpkinhead," "Millennium") the Grand Inquisitor of Spain, Maria, a young baker's wife, is falsely accused of witchcraft and dragged before the Inquisition and the Cardinal (OLIVER REED - "Gladiator," "Three Musketeers"). Torquemada is enchanted by Maria's beauty and subjects her husband Antonio to heinous tortures hoping to prove that his own desires for her are a result of her magic, that she has "bewitched him." With the help of Esmeralda, Maria's cellmate and confessed witch, Maria must find the power to save Antonio from Torquemada's ultimate machine of torture: the inevitable, razor sharp PENDULUM poised over the inescapable PIT of hell.
Castle Freak Synopsis
Directed by Stuart Gordon and starring Jeffrey Combs, Barbara Crampton, Jessica Dollarhide and Jonathan Fuller.
When an American family (Combs, Crampton, Dollarhide) moves to Italy to occupy a castle they've inherited, they unwittingly unleash a terrible, bloodthirsty creature (Fuller), somehow tied to a dark family secret.
Well, this is interesting... a couple of days ago a script review of Javier Gutierrez's remake of The Crow slipped online, and let's just say it wasn't pretty. Said review made it sound as if this new Crow was a 180-degree turn from the original; however, star Luke Evans tells a different tale.
"[The Crow] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly," Evans tells Coming Soon. "The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that probably would have had a very promising career... I'm Eric Draven. I'm the same character. Obviously, he's been refreshed and brought up to date. We're reimagining it to a certain extent, but the story and the plot is mostly the same."
Luke Evans has been tapped by Relativity Media to star as Eric Draven in the story based on the James O'Barr comic book series that was previously adapted as a 1994 Miramax movie starring Brandon Lee. It follows a man who returns from beyond the grave to avenge his death.
Ed Pressman of Pressman Film and Kevin Misher of Misher Films are producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Jeff Most. Dan Farah of Farah Films will executive produce with Relativity's Tucker Tooley. Cameras roll in 2014.
Look for more soon.
Kaleidoscope Film Distributors has released the full trailer for Paul Hyett's acclaimed new shocker The Seasoning House (review here), and we have a look at the goods for you right here. Check it out.
Written and directed by Paul Hyett (award-winning special makeup FX designer for The Woman in Black, Dog Soldiers, Doomsday, Attack the Block, Eden Lake, Centurion, and more) and starring Sean Pertwee (Equilibrium, Doomsday, Mutant Chronicles, Devil’s Playground, 184.108.40.206.), Rosie Day (Black Books, Fallen Angel, Harley Street), Anna Walton (Hellboy II - The Golden Army, 5 Days of War, Mutant Chronicles, Crusoe), Kevin Howarth (Gallowwalker, The Magnificent Eleven, The Last Horror Movie), and Jemma Powell (Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, The Symmetry of Love), The Seasoning House is produced by Michael Riley (Vampire Diary, Outlanders, Sugarhouse, Lava, In a Land of Plenty) of London-based Sterling Pictures.
The Seasoning House is a stylish, claustrophobic, nightmarish neo-horror about Angel, a young Balkan girl forced to work in a rape house during an unspecified war. After killing a militiaman, she goes on the run.
Melting flesh, gruesome alien mutations, post-apocalyptic machinery, pus-shooting creatures, tits, automatic weaponry and a decidedly NSFW teaser trailer. Occasionally things come across our desks here at Dread Central that make us to grin ear to ear.
Such is the case with the teaser trailer for the insane Forbidden Dimensions.
Executive produced by Warren I. Abbot and written and directed by Chris Miller, the Z Sky Productions/Razorwire Films low-budget feature Forbidden Dimensions' festival run and distribution are imminent, so we thought it time to chat with some of the flick’s principals, including filmmaker Miller and stars Kyle Morris and Jamie Katonic.
"What we were trying to do with Forbidden Dimensions was to recreate the look and feel of the great horror/sci-fi flicks of the 80's,” director Miller told us of the film, which was shot between September of 2012 and February of this year. “That's why there's no greenscreen shots in the movie, and CGI was used sparingly, mostly for touch-up work.”
Filmed in California's Mojave Desert and in and around Los Angeles on the Canon 5D, “We had real sets, prosthetic makeup effects, animatronics, puppets and stop-motion animation,” Miller stated of the film, which also stars Carl Crew (Blood Diner) and porn stars Brittany Oneil and Amy Daly. “This is how a film should be made. It's Max Headroom meets Dune on the set of Road Warrior."
Chatting with actor Kyle Morris (American Girls, Reel Evil), who portrays the film's lead ‘Jack Slade,’ he said of his Forbidden Dimensions experience, “It was intense. We had a very low budget but were able to find locations for a reasonable rate that only increased the positivity of the filming process. I've worked with Chris in the past, and we were able to communicate comfortably and had a trust and understanding as to what the initial goal was of the film. We’re both fans of 80's horror/sci-fi and practical FX, and I had no doubts that it was gonna be a blast. One day we went to Wasteland Weekend, which was a post-apocalyptic Burning Man basically, and with permission to shoot, we ran around filming like kids in a toy store.”
As to what attracted him to such a gonzo production, “They were probably obvious reasons!” Morris effused. “Chris was one of my best friends and offered me the paying gig, and I knew there was gonna be a lot of gore and FX. And after shooting with him in the past, I knew that there would be very little complication, if any, before, during, and after filming. Also, the role was a lead, essentially about a normal guy in a world full of crazies. And I had never done a post-apocalyptic film before. Being a fan of Mad Max, Thunderdome, etc., I knew it was gonna be a blend of those films with a sci-fi twist, but it also seemed like a David Lynch film all the while.”
Co-star Katonic (co-creator of the forthcoming horror comic book series Miss Katonic, which she's created along with Zak Hennessey and the rock band GWAR!) stated of her performance in Forbidden Dimensions, “Even though I was naked in three quarters of the movie, covered in purple goo, making out with puppets, and sometimes covered in blood and completely freezing, it didn't seem to bother me a bit! I was focused on the story, and the comfort level around the director, his crew, and Kyle was always at a total maximum, and when filming was over, I'd wander around the studio forcing Kyle to take photos of me and the life-size alien drone puppets in compromising positions!”
Regarding her attraction to the material, “Who wouldn't want to be the leader of a post-apocalyptic army in a 'B' horror film and be called the 'Star Child'?” she posited. “This kind of role was right up my alley! I want to keep my life fun, creative and adventurous, and I can definitely say I've checked yet another thing off my list in life this year that I'd hoped to accomplish since childhood.”
Stay tuned for a theatrical trailer, poster and official website soon, and in the interim check out actress Jamie Katonic's comic here!
Jack Slade was born during a solar eclipse in the year 1980. 18 years later, he finds out he has the ability to travel into the future.

With the help of an army of female outlaws and a sleazy detective, Slade re-connects with the star child Khadijah, who holds the key to stopping these tragic events from ever taking place.

A gory new international one-sheet has arrived for the new shaker from Eli Roth and Nicolas Lopez, Aftershock, and it makes us wish that we had the balls here Stateside to release something like this! Dig it!
Aftershock (review), an earthquake thriller scripted by Cabin Fever and Hostel's Eli Roth, Nicolas Lopez, and Guillermo Amoedo, revolves around an insane asylum on an island, where the inmates escape during the quake.
It’s the next "Eli Roth Presents" film, and it marks the English-language debut from director Nicolas Lopez. His last two films, Que Pena Tu Vida and Que Pena Tu Boda, were the highest-grossing Chilean films of 2010 and 2011. Roth most recently produced The Last Exorcism, a microbudget film that grossed $70 million worldwide.
Roth and Lopez wrote the story together, inspired by the latter’s experience when an earthquake devastated Chile in 2010. In his first big acting role since Inglourious Basterds, Roth plays the lead. Among the other cast is Selena Gomez, who was in Chile doing a concert and came over to do a cameo. Lopez’s frequent collaborators Ariel Levy, Nicolas Martinez, and Lorenza Izzo also star along with Natasha Yarovenko, Andrea Osvart, and Miguel Asensio.
Look for it in theatres on May 10th.
In Chile an American tourist’s vacation goes from good to great when he meets some beautiful women travelers. But when an earthquake ravages the underground nightclub they are in, a fun night quickly turns to terror. Escaping to the surface is just the beginning as they face the nightmarish chaos above ground.
Bill Oberst, Jr., is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable faces in the genre, and we're lucky to have him. The guy can do everything from sympathetic to absolutely psychotic at the drop of a dime. On tap right now is an exclusive look at his latest flick, The Black Water Vampire.
From the Press Release
Filming begins on Bill Oberst’s The Black Water Vampire, a bold new vision of horror: a vampire movie in the found footage style. Jesse Baget (Breathless, Cellmates) is producing the film under his Ruthless Pictures banner.
The Black Water Vampire follows a documentary film crew as they investigate a series of brutal killings known as the Black Water Murders. As they delve deeper into the story, the crew stumbles upon a horrifying secret buried deep in the woods, a secret they might not survive.
Bill Oberst was excited about portraying the alleged serial killer Raymond Banks in the film, “When Jesse asked me to play Raymond Banks, he sent along a link to one of the more disturbing pieces of real-life video I've ever seen for character inspiration; it was a clip of serial killer Aileen Wuornos on the day before her execution. That clip was a stroke of genius. It stayed with me. If my performance works, it will be because of Jesse's talent and his insistence on reality and nuance over cliche.”
Baget is excited about the film. “I think this is a thrilling new take on both vampire movies as well as the found footage films,” he states. Of the film’s star, Bill Oberst, Jr. (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, Scary or Die), Baget says, “Bill brings a great deal of horror film experience to the project, which is evident in his hair-raising performance as convicted serial killer Raymond Banks.”
In addition to Bill Oberst, Jr., The Black Water Vampire has secured up-and-comers Danielle Lozeau (The Eye, Legion), Andrea Monier (Elizabethtow, Are You Scared 2), Robin Steffen (The Lackey), and Anthony Fanelli.
Ruthless Pictures is currently in production on two other films, All Hallows’ Eve directed by Damien Leone, and Mischief Night, starring Ally Walker, Charlie O’Connell, Daniel Hugh Kelly, and Erica Leehrsen.

The film also features Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Tony Goldwyn, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, and Amy Newbold. The futuristic action adventure is directed by Neil Burger from a script by Vanessa Taylor. The original draft of the script was written by Evan Daugherty. Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing the project via their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian. Red Wagon’s Rachel Shane is executive producing alongside John J. Kelly. Summit will release the film theatrically in North America on Friday, March 21, 2014.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling adventure set in a future world where people are divided into distinct factions based on their personalities. Tris Prior (Woodley) is warned she is Divergent and will never fit into any one group. When she discovers a conspiracy to destroy all Divergents, she must find out what makes being Divergent so dangerous before it's too late.

When the DC crew heads out to Disney, there's one thing on the agenda first and foremost - ride The Haunted Mansion again and again and again. We just can't get enough. If all goes well, though, we're also gonna have a pretty bitchin' alternative!
According to Orlando Attractions, Disney is considering attraction themed rooms and resorts and has been sending out polls to recent travelers to see which they'd be interested in between: a Haunted Mansion Room, a Royal Room, and a Pirates of the Caribbean Room.
Here’s the description of the Haunted Mansion room:
"Come spend the night with a few of the happy haunts who play in an enchanted bedroom inspired by the Haunted Mansion. Rest atop the floating Doom Buggy beds with a couple of friendly spooks and watch glow-in-the-dark, cartoon-like footsteps mysteriously appear as the evening sets in. A sliding bookcase creates a hidden passage to the bathroom and is the perfect hiding place for a hitch-hiking ghost. Oversized furnishings with curvy lines and bright colors add to the whimsy in the room. Guests will delight in finding the hidden special effects that play up the merry, rather than scary, room ambiance.
Dear lord, what we'd do for this! Please, Disney! Make this spooky magic happen!

In exchange for a fee of £2,000, these human “guinea pigs” have agreed to spend two weeks in isolation testing an experimental new drug known only as Pro9. After settling into the facility, each participant is given a first injection and, following a group dinner, sent to bed. But shortly after dark, the group is woken by the harrowing screams of one of their number. Soon, each volunteer begins to succumb to the terrifying and previously unknown effects of Pro9 during a never-ending night fraught with horror, madness, violence, and death.

More casting news has come in for the MGM meta redux of The Town that Dreaded Sundown, and we have the skinny on exactly who'll be facing the original Sackhead next. Hint - It's not Steve Dash or Warrington Gillette.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Veronica Cartwright, Gary Cole, and Joshua Leonard (pictured; The Blair Witch Project) have joined the cast of MGM’s The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Cole is a deputy who is doggedly pursuing the killer, and Leonard will play the deputy assigned to protect the previously announced Addison Timlin and her grandmother. Cartwright will play Timlin’s grandmother who is raising her after her parents die in a car accident.
Timlin plays Jami, a girl who survives a copycat massacre at the film’s annual tribute screening and sets out to solve the mystery of who’s recreating the unsolved Sackhead murders, using clues from her own past. Travis Tope plays a classmate who befriends Timlin’s character and decides to make a documentary about the search for the killer.
"American Horror Story" director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will direct the remake of the 1976 Charles B. Pierce horror classic with Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum producing.
The original movie was based on five unsolved murders attributed to the Phantom Killer during three months in 1946 in and around the city of Texarkana on the border between Texas and Arkansas. Pierce shot large parts of the movie in and around Texarkana with extras recruited from local residents.

The producing team on THE NIGHT VISITOR includes Mark Gantt (Bannon Way, Oceans 11), Brianne Davis (Among Friends, Jarhead), Jennifer Blanc-Biehn ( Wrong Cops, Hidden in the Woods, Treachery), Mark Burnham (Wrong , Wrong Cops), Kate Rees Davies (Sticks and Stones, which stars Blanc-Biehn and is playing Cannes May 20 2013), Lony Ruhmann, and Michael Biehn for Blanc/Biehn Productions.
Blanc-Biehn will also be attending the 66th Cannes International Film Festival May 15 to 22nd to support several upcoming projects this year as an actress, producer and first-time director.
