TRUST ISSUES - When Klaus (Joseph Morgan) discovers Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) life is being threatened, he goes to extreme lengths to protect her and their unborn baby. Having a difficult time dealing with the tragic events of her past, Cami (Leah Pipes) turns to Father Kieran (guest star Todd Stashwick) for guidance.
Feeling as though he can trust no one, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) visits an old friend to seek out some advice, while Davina (Danielle Campbell) takes steps to learn how to control her magic. Finally, Klaus delivers some surprising news to Father Kieran.
Daniel Gillies, Claire Holt, and Daniella Pineda also star. Michael Allowitz directed the episode written by Charlie Charbonneau and Diane Ademu-John.
In a recent interview with The Toronto Star, acclaimed filmmaker David Cronenberg had some very interesting words about the late great Stanley Kubrick. Will this cause the same fervor as Romero stating he's not into "The Walking Dead"?
Kubrick will be getting his own exhibit at next year's Toronto International Film Festival, and the news sparked an unexpected reaction from Cronenberg toward the filmmaker and more specifically his version of Stephen King's The Shining.
“I think I’m a more intimate and personal filmmaker than Kubrick ever was,” Cronenberg said. “That’s why I find The Shining not to be a great film. I don’t think he understood the [horror] genre. I don’t think he understood what he was doing. There were some striking images in the book and he got that, but I don’t think he really felt it. In a weird way, although he’s revered as a high-level cinematic artist, I think he was much more commercial-minded and was looking for stuff that would click and that he could get financed. I think he was very obsessed with that, to an extent that I’m not. Or that Bergman or Fellini were.”
Well... okay then?

Along with uncovering a trio of clips from "The Sin Eater," Episode 1.06 of "Sleepy Hollow," we learned that guest star John Noble, whom we'll see for the first time tonight, will be back!
Per TVLine, we’ll see Noble at least three more times this season. His next episode has “a terrific script,” he enthusiastically told the site, and the actor also happily announced that he’ll be back in Season 2.
"Sleepy Hollow" Episode 1.06 - "The Sin Eater" (airs 11/4/13; repeats 11/8/13)
When Ichabod Crane (Tom Mison) goes missing, his wife, Katrina (Katia Winter), appears to Lt. Abbie Mills (Nicole Beharie) in a vision warning her that the Headless Horseman will return to Sleepy Hollow by nightfall. A frantic Abbie seeks help from the mysterious Henry Parrish (guest star John Noble), who holds vital clues about how Crane can vanquish his dangerous blood tie to Headless.
Meanwhile, an encounter from Crane's past weighs heavily on him, and details about his first encounter with Katrina are revealed.
Picture that, right? A body of water vs. an anaconda! It could be as exciting as watching two invisible men fight in Hollow Man 2. Lord knows that was a treat. Seriously though...
Word has come in pre-AFM that a new film is getting set to roll in Bulgaria that will bring together the Lake Placid and Anaconda franchises. There are no details yet, but casting is under way for two large and cartoonish-looking CGI behemoths that will no doubt spatter a wellspring of digital gore all over the place.
Wink at that, Jon Voight. Cameras roll in December.

Another new character one-sheet has arrived for Divergent courtesy of Summit, and it features a hawk rising. Not a chicken hawk either. Those are reserved strictly for Looney Toons.
The highly anticipated feature film adaptation of DIVERGENT stars Golden Globe® nominated Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet. 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 based on author Veronica Roth’s New York Times best seller is directed by Neil Burger from a script by Vanessa Taylor. The original draft of the script was written by Evan Daugherty.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling action-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.
In some parts of the ancient world, the hawk symbolized the sun. Back when I got this, I figured if I always had the sun on me, I wouldn’t be afraid of the dark... Now it reminds me of the fear I’ve overcome. Most Dauntless get tattoos as a reminder of the past, a mark of progress. They are a sign of overcoming obstacles, a way of marking struggle and progress on the body.
More casting news for the latest Stephen King adaptation, CELL, has arrived in the form of the always entertaining Samuel L. Jackson. Read on for all the latest details that have just jumped out of the gate.
From the Press Release
Benaroya Pictures and The Genre Company announced today they have set Samuel L. Jackson to co-star with John Cusack in the apocalyptic thriller CELL, based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King. Tod “Kip” Williams will direct, with production set to begin in January. Benaroya Pictures is financing.
Samuel L. Jackson most recently co-starred in last year’s Django Unchained and next appears in the upcoming films Oldboy and Robocop as well as Captain America 2: Winter Soldier and The Avengers sequel. He is currently in production on Secret Service. In CELL, Jackson will play Tom McCourt, an engineer and former soldier who escapes from Boston along with Cusack’s character, Clay Riddell, after a mysterious pulse, transmitted by cell phones, spreads like a virus through the human population.
“It's really exciting to have such a great cast continue to come together on this project,” said Benaroya Pictures principal Michael Benaroya. “Our goal is to create exciting commercial fare with top talent to really deliver on the concept of an 'elevated genre' film.”
Producing the project are Richard Saperstein (Se7en, Hancock), Michael Benaroya (Lawless, Margin Call), Brian Witten (Chernobyl Diaries, Friday the 13th, Final Destination), and Shara Kay (Silent Night). While President of Dimension Films, Saperstein oversaw the Stephen King adaptations The Mist, directed by Frank Darabont, and 1408, which also starred Cusack and Jackson and grossed over $130 million worldwide.
The screenplay for CELL was written by Stephen King and Adam Alleca (Last House on the Left). Edward Mokhtarian, Armen Aghaeian, Xavier Gens, and Laurence Freed will executive produce. Mark Leyner and Ben Insler will co-produce.
International Film Trust will be presenting the project to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market.
When a powerful signal is broadcast across mobile networks worldwide, cell phone users’ minds are instantly and dangerously re-programmed. Heading north through New England in search of his wife and son, Clay Riddell is joined by a group of survivors hoping to fend off the bloodthirsty and hyper-connected “phoners.”
Five years after we first posted about Satan's Playground director Dante Tomaselli's Torture Chamber, the film is at long last headed home. The epic journey comes to an end on January 28, 2014, when Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment releases the film on DVD.
Refresh your memory with the plot crunch and trailer below!
The film stars Vincent Pastore and Lynn Lowry.
Hallucinatory horror shocker about an unholy bond between a mother and her two sons. A Catholic priest, devoted to saving his family, tries to cure his deranged younger brother -- but 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any religion. After escaping from a mental institution, Jimmy is back with a vengeance -- and an army of children who follow his every murderous desire. The town trembles in fear as the youths attack and abduct its residents -- innocent and guilty alike -- dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its underground tunnels. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don't live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, even Jimmy's own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber.
A few new stills have arrived from "American Horror Story: Coven" Episode 3.05, "Burn, Witch, Burn!"; and while they don't show us much, at least they tease the return of the Coven's hunky neighbor Luke (Alexander Dreymon).
"American Horror Story: Coven" Episode 3.05 - "Burn, Witch, Burn!" (airs 11/6/13)
Besieged by Marie Laveau's (Angela Bassett) army, Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) unleashes a new power. Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Myrtle (Frances Conroy) clash over control of the Coven. Madame LaLaurie (Kathy Bates) is confronted by old ghosts.
Written by Jessica Sharzer; directed by Jeremy Podeswa.
While horror fans tend to not see eye to eye on many issues, one thing we can all agree on is that old school practical effects should never take a back seat to CGI - which they unfortunately do these days, far more often than they don't.
If you agree with this statement, then director Benni Diez is looking to please you with his first feature film Stung!
Our friends over at Twitch just shared the first still from the flick, which is produced by Twitch's founder/editor Todd Brown. While Diez had originally unveiled a proof of concept trailer that was loaded with CGI, the still shows a whole different vision, one that includes a badass looking animatronic bug. Word is that Diez will be using practical effects as much as possible with CGI as a supplement rather than a crutch.
Check out the still below along with the aforementioned proof of concept trailer!
The flick stars Peter Stormare, Lance Henriksen, Clifton Collins, Jessica Cook and Matt O'Leary.
A fancy garden party goes terribly wrong after a local species of wasps mutate into giant predators. It's up to Paul and Julia, two catering staffers at the high-society event, to stop the killer creatures - an effort that kickstarts a budding romance between the two.
Both zombies and vampires are all the rage right now, and World War Z writer Max Brooks capitalized on that earlier this year by launching Extinction Parade, a comic series that depicts a battle between the two breeds of monsters - with us lowly humans caught in the middle.
As reported by the folks over at Bleeding Cool, the comic series from Avatar Press may already be set to come to life on the small screen. Though the news isn't 100% confirmed, Rich Johnston writes that Extinction Parade is "currently in the process of being signed as a TV series for one of the most successful production companies in Hollywood."
Avatar Press has yet to issue any comments about this, so for now this rumor is all we've got to go on.
More as we learn it!

Some more behind-the-scenes images have surfaced from the set of Saw V director David Hackl's new film, Endangered (formerly Red Machine), and they leave us wondering just where the hell is this flick already?
The latest set of images below show off one of the film's main set pieces, the old Trapper’s cabin. The article from which they come also states that the flick, when it finally does arrive, may be a 3D conversion.
James Marsden, Thomas Jane, Scott Glenn, Piper Perabo, and Billy Bob Thornton star in the film.
In the action thriller Endangered, a deputy whose mission is protecting the threatened grizzly bear suddenly finds himself conflicted when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc on a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother, he enters the labyrinthian Grizzly Maze to track down his wife who’s gone missing before the bear does. As the body count mounts, and an infamous bear hunter enters the fray determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life, no one is safe in the harsh Alaskan wilds.
What if Season of the Witch Wasn't Halloween 3? Have a Look at Fan-Made Trailer for Halloween: Harvest of Souls
Here's something for your post-Halloween hangover. Imagine, it's 1985 and instead of Season of the Witch the filmmakers behind the budding Halloween series decided to stick with The Shape and deliver a third installment featuring Michael Myers.
We've got the trailer!
Actor Lane Hughes (You're Next, V/H/S, A Horrible Way to Die) teamed with director Jay Burleson to create a retro trailer envisioning what Halloween: Harvest of Souls would have looked like. Kudos to the gang for coming up with something that actually looks like a 20-year old VHS trailer. They've even got a cool tale explaining the history of their Halloween 3 to go along with it. Read the backstory and take a peek at the video.
Halloween: Harvest of Souls Backstory
After the failure of Halloween III: Season of the Witch, the rights to the Halloween franchise were lost in the shuffle of a merger, and a sequel to Halloween II was quickly rushed into production by a new team of producers. The new installment, Halloween: Harvest of Souls, was viewed as a direct sequel to the second film and would be a true Halloween III with Michael Myers.
The film was made on a shoestring budget, even less than Carpenter's original, and did not feature a return by Jamie Lee Curtis. The character of Loomis returns, still played by Donald Pleasence, but in a limited capacity. To keep pace with the height of the '80s slasher craze, Harvest of Souls featured extreme nudity and gore, and had yet to receive better than an X-rating before it was canned.
Original series producer Moustapha Akkad tied the rights up with a long legal battle, which he ultimately won, and Harvest of Souls was shelved altogether in favor of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, which was released in 1988, three years after Souls was filmed. Until recently, Harvest of Souls was nothing more than an urban legend, the original film print long lost, the knowledge of its very existence scarce. A lone VHS tape, found in an abandoned storage locker, containing the X-rated cut of the film and a very tame 'PG' trailer, recently surfaced and that brings us to the here and now. The release of the aforementioned trailer and proof that this urban legend is real.

It is still rumored to inhabit the ghost of Alice. Despite this the new owner, the rich and arrogant heir to the Davenport fortune, decides to throw a wild party for his first night in the house.
UK horror/sci-fi film Scintilla has some new artwork and a pretty effective trailer to share. Look for more soon on this tale of mercenaries who discover a radical scientist's shocking creations and must save future generations from a human race genetically spliced with alien DNA.
Scintilla is directed by Billy O’Brien (Isolation). Producers include Lionel Hicks and Craig Conway for Forefront Features and Liquid Noise Films with co-producers Doug Abbott and John Wolstenholme.
The film’s ensemble cast is comprised of John Lynch, Morjana Alaoui, Ned Dennehy, Craig Conway, Beth Winslet, Antonia Thomas, and more.
A double cross left mercenary Jim Powell (Lynch) in a hellhole African prison. Now his release has been paid for by a corporate sponsor, but only so he can be given a new, even more dangerous job. Powell is hired to lead a team deep into a former Soviet state, now in the grip of an illegal uprising. Here they must infiltrate an armed militia base and get into the secret tunnels which lie underneath.
Half a mile underground in this former Soviet nuclear bunker there is a secret bio-tech laboratory. Paid for by unlimited oligarch dollars, it houses one very special scientist: Dr. Irvine (Winslet). Her research is revolutionary. It breaks every law. The results are extraordinary; the potential applications are worth billions.
Powell and his team have six hours underground to kidnap the scientist, steal her research, and get back to the surface. Only thing is, nothing Powell has been told is the truth, and the secret held within the lab is unlike anything he has ever seen before.
He will be lucky to get out alive.
