Airing as part of Syfy's seventh annual "31 Days of Halloween" is The Booth Brothers' Dead Still, and following up on the first look at the production we gave you a few weeks ago, the flick's trailer has arrived!

Syfy presents, in association with Plus Entertainment, Hollywood Media Bridge, Twintalk Entertainment, and Spooked Productions, A Booth Brothers Film, Dead Still, airing on Monday, October 6th. The film was shot on location in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Christopher Saint Booth and Philip Adrian Booth are identical twins who make up the dynamic filmmaking duo of The Booth Brothers. Their previous films include Death Tunnel, The Exorcist File, The Ghosts of Waverly Hills Sanatorium, and Children of the Grave.

Dead Still stars Ben Browder ("Farscape," "Stargate SG1"), Ray Wise ("Twin Peaks," Jeepers Creepers), Gavin Casalegno (Noah, When the Game Stands Tall), and Elle LaMont ("From Dusk Till Dawn," Machete Kills).

Synopsis:
Upon the death of his great grandfather, wedding photographer Brandon Davis (Browder) inherits an antique camera famous for taking Victorian death photography. After photographing his subjects, they start to die from horrible, bizarre deaths and then reappear as eerie death portraits.

One by one Brandon begins to lose people very close to him as he struggles to uncover the haunting mystery behind the cursed camera. When his eleven-year-old son goes missing, Brandon discovers the camera has supernatural powers and has trapped his son inside of it. He must now risk all and journey beyond the realm of all imagination to fight the hideous entities within, save his son, and reverse the deadly curse that plagues them before they all become... Dead Still.

New Sleepy Hollow Season 2 Sneak Peek Explores Ichabod's Relationship with the Founding Fathers

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 16:14

Sleepyheads, rejoice! Season 2 of "Sleepy Hollow" kicks off in just two more weeks on Fox, and we have a new sneak peek that explores the relationships Ichabod had with some of the Founding Fathers.

"Sleepy Hollow" focuses on a resurrected Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison), who’s pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to America’s founding fathers. Along for the wild ride is a modern-day cop, Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie).

Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Lyndie Greenwood, and John Noble return along with Mison and Beharie, and joining the show this coming season are Timothy Busfield as Benjamin Franklin; Sakina Jaffrey as Sheriff Reyes, filling in for the incarcerated Frank Irving (Jones); Heather Lind as Mary Wells, Crane’s English ex straight out of the 18th century; Matt Barr as Nick Hawley, an arms dealer who gets drawn into Ichabod and Abbie's work; and Aunjanue Ellis as Abbie and Jenny's (Greenwood) mother, Lori Mills.

"Sleepy Hollow" Season 2 begins September 22nd and will be an expanded 18 episodes. You'll find the synopsis for Episode 2.01 below. If you're still not quite caught up on Season 1, the Blu-ray and DVD arrive on September 16th.

"Sleepy Hollow" Episode 2.01 - "This Is War" (airs 9/22/14)
Picking up immediately after the spellbinding events of the Season 1 finale, Ichabod finds himself buried alive in a coffin; Abbie is trapped in purgatory; Ichabod's wife, Katrina, has been kidnapped by the Headless Horseman; Capt. Frank Irving is behind bars for a murder he did not commit; and Abbie's sister, Jenny, is among the wreckage of an horrific car crash. These events were due, in large part, to the shocking revelation that Henry Parish, the trusted friend of Ichabod and Abbie, is actually Ichabod and Katrina's son and the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse. Now, with Henry's emergence as the Horseman of War alongside the Headless Horseman, Sleepy Hollow has never been so close to destruction.

The Boy Next Door Is Obsessed with J Lo; Watch the Trailer

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 15:04

It's often said that Jennifer Lopez's booty has the power to drive men crazy, and The Boy Next Door sets out to prove the literal truth of that statement. Check out the trailer for the Blumhouse-produced thriller, due in theaters on January 23rd of next year!

Hill Harper, Ryan Guzman, John Corbett, and Kristin Chenoweth also star. Rob Cohen (XXX) directs the Barbara Curry-penned micro-budget movie, which will be distributed by Universal. Blumhouse is making the movie with Smart Entertainment and Nuyorican Productions.

Lopez play a newly separated mother who finds herself attracted to the teenage boy who moves in next door and befriends her son.

The Ruination of Horror? A Look at the PG-13 Rating

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 14:55

Since the PG-13 rating's inception, it has been the source of much controversy. Is it the big monster in the closet most horror fans fear? Does it ruin our genre and other genres? Honestly, it depends on how it's used, and this video takes a look at that.

Blip.TV has just brought a great examination of the rating online. Probably the most comprehensive examination of this rating ever made. It's entitled WTF Happened to PG-13?, and you're bound to learn something and be a little enraged at the same time.

For our money a horror film doesn't have to be rated R to be good. Some of the most horrific films out there, including the original Texas Chain Saw Masscare, barely have a single bloody moment.

The Legend of Hell House, Jaws, Poltergeist... I can go on and on. You know when PG-13 fails? When the movie stops being about being a good movie and starts being about getting a particular rating. Filmmakers have a habit of letting the studios be so pushy that they end up gimping themselves. That's not totally their fault either because unless you're a Hollywood golden boy like Quentin Tarantino who can make his movies as violent and over-the-top as he wants, you're pretty much crucified by the ratings board for every little thing.

Look at Kill Bill and Hatchet. Kill Bill is human-on-human violence featuring swords, guns, and anything else laying around. Rated R. Hatchet is a goofy little throwback movie about a friggin' swamp ghost with a magic-powered belt sander that needed to be cut to shreds for an R rating. It doesn't make any sense. Hell... it never made any sense.

Get Trapped by this Teaser for the It's Hell Getting Old Segment of Hellevator Man

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:45

Getting stuck in an elevator is scary enough, but doing so with a bunch of senior citizens? You can be sure filmmaker Patrick Rea piles on the spooky - plus a little silly - in this teaser for his "It's Hell Getting Old" segment of the Hellevator Man anthology.

Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.

The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication.

The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.

Other segments include Vincent J. Guastini's “The Future Executive,” which centers around Devi (Sushi Girl’s Cortney Palm), a powerful young CEO who enters her office’s empty elevator for an important meeting as a gloved hand stops the doors from closing. Andy Mackenzie (Shoot ‘Em Up) plays Jack, a delivery man who follows Devi into the tiny space. The elevator doors part one more time for Liam (Donnie Darko’s James Duval), a mild-mannered office worker with an unrequited crush on Devi. A sudden power outage sets the stage for a nightmare ride ahead for the trio.

Scott Schirmer's "Tear" was also recently announced as was WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley, aka Mankind, coming on board as the "Hellevator Man" and storyteller himself.

Vampire Saga/Christian Scare Mashup The Sins of Dracula Unveils a Trailer, Poster, and Premiere Date!

Mon, 09/08/2014 - 12:30

Scorpio Film Releasing is New England’s most prolific feature film production company, and their latest, The Sins of Dracula, takes on an icon and fuses him with a parody of Christian scare films. What's not to love? Here are its trailer, poster, and premiere info.

From the Press Release:
Scorpio Film Releasing presents the trailer for its newest film, The Sins of Dracula, a story of sex, sacrilege, and sin from director Richard Griffin, writer Michael Varrati, and producers Ted Marr and Stacey St. Edmunds.

The film will have its world premiere October 26th at CinemaWorld in Lincoln, Rhode Island (622 George Washington Highway).

Michael Thurber (Exhumed), Jamie Dufault (Murder University), Sarah Nicklin (Alice D), Steven O’Broin (Future Justice), Carmine Capobianco (Psychos In Love), and Samantha Acampora (Murder University) star. Artist Devon Whitehead created the original poster for the film.

"I am overjoyed with how The Sins of Dracula came out,” said director Richard Griffin. “The cast is spot on, and Michael Varrati's screenplay is wickedly satirical. I've really wanted to do a Dracula film for years, and to be able to fuse it with a parody of Christian scare films? Well, that's pure filmmaking bliss.”

For more info be sure to visit The Sins of Dracula on Facebook and on Twitter (@SinsofDracula).

Synopsis:
The Sins of Dracula centers around Billy (Dufault). As the star of his church choir, there’s nothing that brings Billy more joy than the opportunity to sing for an audience. However, as his desire to perform grows, the stalwart youth finds that waiting until Sunday to get his fix just simply isn’t enough. Going against the advice of his pastor, Billy follows his girlfriend into the world of secular entertainment, joining the local community theatre troupe. There, Billy is introduced to a whole new world, where his fellow thespians dabble in drugs, sexual perversion, and table-top gameplay. Yet, for all the newly minted depravities Billy encounters, none could prepare him for the darkest truth of them all: The theatre group is actually a front for a Satanic cult intent on raising Dracula from the grave! It’s a world where Sondheim is Satan, Broadway means blasphemy, and where taking the stage just might mean curtains... for your eternal soul.

Dazzled by the vibrancy of a modern city at night, Joe wanders around and runs into Apple, a jilted girl planning to kill herself. Eager for a taste of blood, Joe follows her home and helps her and her grandmother get rid of thugs sent by a real estate developer who wishes to buy them off. What started as a battle for property turns out to be a fight among vampires.
