Past and Present Collide in these Stills from The Originals Episode 1.15 - Le Grand Guignol

Mon, 03/03/2014 - 14:00

We can't hide our affection for "The Originals," and if you're planning to experience "Le Grand Guignol" with us tomorrow night, here are a dozen and a half photos from Episode 1.15, which sees the return of Sebastian Roche as Mikael.

"The Originals" Episode 1.15 - "Le Grand Guignol" (airs 3/4/14, 8-9pm)
A NIGHT AT THE OPERA — In a series of flashbacks to 1919, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) opens up to Cami (Leah Pipes) and reveals details of the devastating secret Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) were trying to keep from him.

Elijah (Daniel Gillies) forms an unlikely alliance with Monique (guest star Yasmine Al Bustami) and asks for her help in locating Sabine (guest star Shannon Kane.)

Elsewhere, Thierry (guest star Callard Harris) is reluctant to get involved when Marcel and Rebekah approach him with a plan to take down the witches. Meanwhile, in the bayou, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) is at her wits’ end and holds Sabine hostage in an attempt to get information that will reverse the curse on Phoebe’s werewolf clan.

Chris Grismer directed the episode written by Declan de Barra and Diane Ademu-John.

The 30-minute Q&A will begin at 10PM ET/9PM CT.

    Experience Diplopia by Watching the Official Trailer for The Double

    Mon, 03/03/2014 - 11:45

    No, your eyes don't deceive you. This is indeed another story about a film in which one actor is playing two characters who look alike. Up now is the official trailer for Richard Ayoade's dark comedy The Double.

    You'll find the film in theatres and on iTunes May 9th from Magnolia Pictures.

    The Double is directed by Richard Ayoade, who co-wrote the script with Avi Korine based on a Fyodor Dostoevsky novella.

    It stars Jesse Eisenberg in a dual role along with Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Noah Taylor, James Fox, Cathy Moriarty, Chris O'Dowd, Sally Hawkins, Craig Roberts, and Paddy Considine.

    For more info visit The Double on Facebook.

    Synopsis:
    Simon James is a ghost. Friends, family, and coworkers meet his every action with complete indifference. He grimly goes through the motions, hoping for recognition that never comes. All of this changes when James Simon arrives.

    Physically, James and Simon are dead ringers. Yet, in temperament, James is everything Simon is not: personable, spontaneous, assertive, and desirable. When James begins to take over Simon’s life, he is forced to act.

    Jesse Eisenberg’s fantastic double performance is bolstered by a cast of seasoned character actors who bring Simon James’ gloomy retro world to life. Directed with a deftly comic hand and assured visual technique by Richard Ayoade, The Double is a stylish black comedy with acerbic wit to spare.

    Bite Labs Lets You Eat Your Favorite Celebrities

    Sat, 03/01/2014 - 17:38

    File this one under "casual cannibalism," kids, as we have just come one step closer to Soylent Green as meat maker Bite Labs has found a way to combine celebrity tissue samples and animal products to create some fine salamis. Yep, didn't think I'd be writing about this today. Or even this year.

    From the Bite Labs website:

    "We start with top-quality ingredients and time-honored recipes for the creation of fine cured meats. We mix celebrity and animal meats, grown inhouse through a proprietary culturing process, into curated salami blends. Starting with biopsied myoblast cells, we grow our healthy, rich meats in Bite Labs’ own bioreactors. Our process yields high-quality, luxury protein, in a sustainable manner that eliminates the environmental and ethical concerns associated with traditional livestock production.”

    Yep... we're all doomed. Enjoy the ride while it lasts. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go check if they have any of Keith Richards' mescaline-soaked pork loin left in stock.

    New Cheap Thrills Clip Will Make You Slap Happy

    Sat, 03/01/2014 - 17:16

    E.L. Katz' Cheap Thrills is now available on VOD, and to further entice you to order it up and enjoy, we have a new clip which examines just how far some people would go to make a quick hundred or five. Check it out!

    The acclaimed comic thriller Cheap Thrills is now available exclusively on the Movies On Demand platform of Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Cox Communications, and Bright House Networks cable systems, prior to its March 21st theatrical and digital VOD release. Cheap Thrills joins a select few titles to receive pre-theatrical debuts exclusively on cable.

    The directorial debut from E.L. Katz, Cheap Thrills was acquired by Drafthouse Films, in partnership with Snoot Entertainment, following its world premiere at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, where it won the "Midnighters Audience Award." Cinedigm holds the home entertainment distribution rights, including DVD, Blu-ray, VOD, and digital platforms.

    Synopsis
    Cheap Thrills follows Craig (Pat Healy), a struggling family man who loses his low-wage job and is threatened with eviction. In an effort to delay facing the music at home, he heads to a local bar and encounters an old friend (Ethan Embry). The two friends are roped into a round of drinks by a charismatic and obscenely wealthy stranger (David Koechner) along with his mysterious wife (Sara Paxton). The couple engages the two friends in a series of innocent dares in exchange for money over the course of the evening, with each challenge upping the ante in both reward and boundaries. It seems like easy and much needed money, but the couple’s twisted sense of humor pushes just how far Craig and his friend are willing to go for money and cheap thrills.

    Sony Bringing Elisa Lam's Haunting and Frightening Tale to the Big Screen

    Thu, 02/27/2014 - 17:07

    2013 Was home to one of the most frightening news stories that the world has ever seen. I speak of the truly mysterious case of Elisa Lam. Let me tell you, not much scares me. Her story however? Yeah, her story scares the hell out of me. As does the video of her last living moments.

    Deadline is reporting that Sony Pictures and Matt Tolmach Productions have acquired The Bringing, a horror spec script written by Brandon and Phillip Murphy and based on an actual place and series of events.

    The spec is based on a woman, Elisa Lam, who was found dead in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles. That’s the place that killers like Richard Ramirez called home at one time or another and where suicides have occurred. Footage of Lam’s bizarre inexplicable behavior in an elevator before her death became a massive internet sensation, and this has been turned into the story of the man investigating her death and the nightmare he stumbles into.

    For those of you who aren't familiar with this case...

    Lam, who was only 21, was last seen at the Cecil Hotel on January 31st, 2013, according to L.A. police. Her parents had reported her missing, and her body was discovered, nude and floating in the water tower of the hotel (a drinking source for residents), where she apparently was for two weeks. Now, if you can believe it, here’s where the story gets REALLY disturbing.

    Lam’s final moments were caught on the elevator security camera of the hotel. The footage you see below was taken moments before her death. In it you’ll see Lam acting very strangely. She appears to be running from or hiding from someone... or something. Most perplexing about the video is that the door stays open the entire time, nearly four minutes. Then Lam contorts into some really frightening way that has to be seen to really be described, and the elevator doors shut. Then open and shut several times before the video ends. Watch the video, and then I’ll tell you about how this story gets even stranger.

    A maintenance worker discovered the body while looking into complaints about the water pressure in the building. Guests had been drinking and bathing with water contaminated by a body that had been decomposing for nearly two weeks. So how did she get there? The water tower on top of the building was 15 feet high and locked. To gain access to said tower, Lam would have had to have passed silently through two locked and alarmed doors first. Apparently she did so. All doors were still locked. No alarms were ever tripped. There are 100's of stories about this on the internet reported by every reputable news agency that there is. Some people say she was possessed or attacked by a ghost. If this is the case, then this is the only known footage of such an occurrence.

    In the end her death was ruled as “accidental.” Mind you, her clothes were never found. Nothing about this story makes any sense.

    Here are more videos on the incident:

Volcano), who were raised by their arthritis-twisted, alcoholic Mother (Barbara Crampton). The boys concoct a deadly game to test their superior intelligence against the dimwitted masses. This game will eventually lead to murder, and when Genevieve, a beautiful single mother, enters their lives, they finally find the perfect girl for their first kill. But problems arise when they quickly discover that Detective Homer Gaul (Ken Foree), a cop with a very special gift, is hot on their trail.

    Here is the first look at the exquisite poster for the mind trip film, designed by artist Devin Koehler.

    “I love the poster Devin has created for us,” says producer Jon Kondelik. “We’ve worked with him on several projects before, and he continues to amaze us with his pieces that are loving throwbacks to the days of the classic artworks from the 70s and 80s.”

    Another New Follower Joins the Cast of Fox's The Following

    Thu, 02/27/2014 - 16:33

    Joe Carroll has a new follower who'll be joining the fray in "The Following" Season 2 as it's just been announced that Mackenzie Marsh (Hiding in the Open) has signed on for a recurring guest role as Tilda.

    Per TV Guide, Tilda is a woman with anger issues who forms an attachment to the escaped serial killer. Though she's feisty on the outside, Tilda also has a deep sense of insecurity stemming from years of ridicule as well as a soft romantic side that has yet to be uncovered.

    Given his activities thus far this season, we're pretty sure Joe will have no problem uncovering said romantic side.

    Cabin Fever: Patient Zero Infects Image Entertainment

    Thu, 02/27/2014 - 16:17

    The latest installment in the budding Cabin Fever franchise has finally been picked up for distribution here in the States, and we have all the bloody details for ya today. Dig in, fiends!

    From the Press Release
    Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment brand, has acquired the U.S. distribution rights to the next installment to the cult hit CABIN FEVER. The announcement was made today by Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley.

    The horror/thriller CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO was directed by Kaare Andrews (Altitude and The ABCs of Death) and stars Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), Currie Graham (Pompeii, “NYPD Blue”), Ryan Donowho (Soldiers of Fortune), Mitch Ryan (“One Tree Hill”), and Jillian Murray (Bad Ass). Image Entertainment will release the film on video-on-demand and in theaters in the summer of 2014.

    “Eli Roth’s original CABIN FEVER was a smashing success, establishing a huge cult following,” said Bromiley. “We are proud to be a part of this franchise, distributing the third installment under the vision of Kaare Andrews. His commitment to stay true to this series will keep audiences wanting more.”

    CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO tells the story of a group of friends enjoying a bachelor weekend on a yacht in the Caribbean. As they run ashore to explore a remote island, they stumble upon an abandoned research facility, where a massacre from a deadly virus is unleashed. They must find a way to survive before the flesh-eating disease consumes them all. Their answer – an uninfected survivor: “Patient Zero.”

    CABIN FEVER: PATIENT ZERO was written Jake Wade Wall (The Hitcher) and produced by original CABIN FEVER producer Evan Astrowsky.

    The deal was negotiated by Mark Ward for Image Entertainment and Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard with Voltage Pictures and Indomina Productions on behalf of the filmmakers.

    Two New Clips Arrive to Leave You In Fear

    Thu, 02/27/2014 - 16:09

    A road trip takes a turn for the deadly in Jeremy Lovering's debut film In Fear (review), which is headed home this March, and right now we have another clip from the flick and your first look at the film's making-of featurette.

    Having already conquered the Sundance Film Festival, In Fear, the critically acclaimed feature film debut of writer/director Jeremy Lovering, arrives March 11th on Blu-ray, VOD, and DVD from Anchor Bay Films.

    In Fear will also enjoy several U.S. exclusive theatrical engagements starting Friday, March 7th.

    Synopsis
    Starring Iain De Caestecker (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D”), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures), and Allen Leech (“Downton Abbey”), In Fear is a tense psychological horror about a young couple's fight to make it through the night. Home invasion, but in a car. In real time.

    Tom (De Caestecker) and Lucy (Englert) are trapped in a maze of country roads with only their vehicle for protection, terrorized by an unseen tormentor hell-bent on exploiting their worst fears. Driving, lost and tormented in the night, primal fears of the dark and the unknown give way to fear that you have let the evil in, or that it is already there.
