Another day. Another zombie T-Rex to put down. All part of the routine for Arthur Wallace and MI37—the government department devoted to defending Britain from threats magical, supernatural, extraterrestrial, and generally odd. Except a zombie T-Rex is only the first of the problems about to trample, slavering and roaring, through Arthur's life.
Before he can say, “But didn't I save the world yesterday?,” a new co-director at MI37 is threatening his job, middle-aged Russian cyborg wizards are threatening his life, and his co-workers are threatening his sanity. As Arthur struggles to unravel a plot to re-enact the Chernobyl disaster in England's capital, he must not only battle foreign occult science but also struggle to keep the trust of his team. Events spiral out of control, friendships fray, and loyalties are tested to their breaking point.
IFC Midnight has announced that the sci-fi/horror flick Extraterrestrial, directed by Colin Minihan and written by The Vicious Brothers, will be available on VOD October 17th and in limited theatres on November 21st. Right now we have the one-sheet for you.
The film centers around a group of college friends who travel to a secluded cabin in the woods for a weekend of partying. As the night is winding down, they notice something strange in the sky: a ball of fire descending through the air, crash landing in the nearby forest...
Freddie Stroma and Brittany Allen star in the indie feature produced by Randy Manis, Kim Arnott, Shawn Angelski, and Martin Fisher.
From The Vicious Brothers, the creators of Grave Encounters, comes a different kind of encounter, one of EXTRATERRESTRIAL origin. Still reeling from her parents’ divorce, April (Daytime Emmy winner Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods.
Lead by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half Blooded Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle of something bigger and more terrifying than anything they could ever imagine.
On tap right now are the first trailer and artwork for the next film from Jesse Baget's Ruthless Pictures, entitled Day of the Mummy. Look for it on VOD and DVD December 9, 2014, courtesy of RLJ/Image Entertainment.

With his centuries-old slumber disturbed by timeless human greed, the King rises from the dead with a blood-lust that cannot be staunched and a raging fury that will shred flesh from bone, bringing terrible and tormented death to all who dare witness the Day of the Mummy.
“Have I mentioned before that I hate demons?” asks Henry Dudlow, the unlikely teenage hero of Dave Zeltserman's The Boy Who Killed Demons. Intrigued? Then read on to learn more about the upcoming novel.
Its release date is October 16th, but first Dave (pictured right) is attending the upcoming New York Comic Con (October 9-12) in The Overlook Press booth. Before he heads to the Big Apple, we'll be chatting with him about The Boy Who Killed Demons so look for our Q&A soon. In the meantime check out the synopsis and cover art below.
From the Press Release:
Like the fictional heroes who have come before him, Henry Dudlow didn’t ask for the gift (or as he sees it, curse) forced upon him. At age 13, when he should have been reading comic books, goofing off with friends, and thinking about high school, Henry discovered that he sees people differently. Instead of his mild-mannered neighbor looking like an average middle-aged man, Henry saw a disturbing creature, a demon.
Now, at age 15, he has alienated himself from his parents, his grades and social life have suffered, and he has thrown himself into the translation and study of ancient texts on the supernatural—not your average teenager’s extracurricular activity.
The Boy Who Killed Demons is written entirely as Henry’s diary, serving the purpose of recording the truth about demons in case he doesn’t survive, as well as documenting the regular dangers of high school: angry parents, a budding romance, and the school’s resident bully. When children begin disappearing throughout the Boston area, Henry’s unasked for calling challenges him to face what his ability allows only him to do: begin hunting demons. In a race against time, Henry must stop a band of demons from opening the gates to hell, all while keeping his sacred duty a secret from everyone in his life.
Filled with the heroism, teen angst, and humor of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Spider-Man, The Boy Who Killed Demons is the latest entry into the unlikely hero canon. Zeltserman’s third horror novel moves with the same heart-racing pace as his previous thrillers and expands to reach a younger audience through its teenage protagonist. This is a book that will scare teens and adults alike, all while reminding them of the perils of growing up.
The setting is quiet Newton, Massachussetts, where nothing ever happens. Nothing, that is, until two months after Henry Dudlow’s 13th birthday, when his neighbor, Mr. Hanley, suddenly starts to look... different. While everyone else sees a balding man with a beer belly, Henry suddenly sees a nasty, bilious, rage-filled demon.
Once Henry catches on to the real Mr. Hanley, he starts to see demons all around him, and his boring, adolescent life is transformed. There’s no more time for friends or sports or the lovely Sally Freeman; instead Henry must work his way through ancient texts and hunt down the demons before they steal any more innocent children. And if hunting demons is hard at any age, it’s borderline impossible when your parents are on your case, your grades are getting worse, and you can’t tell anyone about your chosen mission.
The 1992 Full Moon flick Doctor Mordrid starring Jeffrey Combs was originally intended to be a Doctor Strange movie. Unfortunately, the rights reverted back to Marvel before Charles Band could get the film made.
With an actual Doctor Strange movie in the works, it seems fitting Band would give his pseudo-take on the character the Blu-ray treatment.
Re-Animator’s Jeffrey Combs dons his finest Doctor Strange lounge-wear to play enigmatic interdimensional sorcerer/New York landlord Dr. Anton Mordrid, sworn to protect our world by guarding the gates of the fourth dimension from his mortal enemy, the diabolical warlock Kabul (Brian Thompson, "The X-Files"), while also finding the time to for a little romance with a pretty police research consultant tenant (Yvette Nipar, “Robocop: The Series”).
When Band lost the rights to make a Doctor Strange movie, C. Courtney Joyner’s script was rewritten to create an entirely new supernatural superhero with striking similarities to Marvel’s metaphysical superhero. Alas, his only outing would be this lone 1992 feature film.
In a world where Full Moon produced countless Puppet Master, Demonic Toys, Subspecies, and Trancers sequels, how is it we only got one Doctor Mordrid flick? Perhaps because it was one of the more ambitious Full Moon flicks of the time and stop-animating dueling dinosaur skeletons was too expensive to franchise.
Following in the footsteps of Dollman and Trancers, Full Moon has announced plans to remaster Doctor Mordrid in high definition and release it on Blu-ray in a loaded special edition. Extras will include a new commentary with Charles Band and Jeffrey Combs, the original VideoZone featurette from the VHS release, rare video of William Shatner interviewing Jeffrey Combs and Barbara Crampton (who is not in the movie), and uncut behind-the-scenes footage direct from the Full Moon vault.
The Doctor Mordrid Blu-ray will be available whenever the “master of the unknown” decides to re-open the gate to the fourth dimension. In other words, no date announced yet.

Vin Diesel took to Facebook today, as he often does, to share with fans the first look at his character of Kaulder from the upcoming flick The Last Witch Hunter. The flick pits Diesel up against a coven of vengeful she-bitches. What could go wrong?
Michael Caine, Elijah Wood, Rose Leslie, Julie Engelbrecht, and Olafur Darri Olafsson co-star, and Breck Eisner directs from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama. The film centers on a semi-immortal witch hunter (Diesel) wandering the streets of modern New York City who is forced to partner with his natural enemy, a female witch (Leslie).
Mark Canton is producing via his Mark Canton Productions banner along with Bernie Goldmann and Diesel via his One Race Entertainment banner. Erik Feig, Geoff Shaevitz, and Matthew Janzen oversee the project for Summit Entertainment.
Five hundred years ago, war raged between humankind and witches, vicious supernatural creatures intent on unleashing the Black Death upon the world. Armies of witch hunters battled the unnatural enemy across the globe, including Kaulder (Vin Diesel), a valiant warrior who managed to slay an all-powerful Queen Witch, decimating her followers in the process. In the moments before her death, the Queen exacted her revenge by cursing Kaulder with immortality, forever separating him from his beloved wife and daughter in the afterlife. Kaulder has spent centuries hunting down rogue witches, all the while yearning for his long-lost loved ones.
Today, he is the only one of his kind–-the last witch hunter. With the help of Father Dolan, a Catholic priest, and a mystical arsenal hidden beneath New York’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, he continues to pursue the renegades and outlaws who endanger humanity. Chief among their adversaries is Belial, a powerful rebel witch who Kaulder believes has found a way to restore the Queen Witch to power and reignite her campaign to destroy the human world.
With the help of Chloe, a goodhearted young witch (Rose Leslie), Kaulder sets out to stop Belial before he can set his plan in motion, but allies in unexpected places keep the evil witch one step ahead in a cunning cat-and-mouse pursuit that will determine the survival of the human race.
Over 80,000 fans attended Canada’s 20th annual Fan Expo convention in Toronto, Ontario. The highly anticipated release of New Line Cinema's Annabelle was showcased within the Rue Morgue Magazine "Festival of Fear" area, where fans posed next to what they thought was merely an installation of a "possessed" doll.
Capable of unspeakable evil, the actual doll exists locked up in an occult museum in Connecticut—visited only by a priest who blesses her twice a month. New Line's supernatural thriller Annabelle begins before the evil was unleashed.
Scheduled for release October 3, 2014, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment company.
Annabelle Wallis (X-Men: First Class) and Ward Horton (The Wolf of Wall Street) star. Oscar nominee Alfre Woodard (Cross Creek, Twelve Years a Slave) stars as Evelyn, who owns a bookstore and is familiar with the occult. Rounding out the cast are Kerry O’Malley (TV’s “Those Who Kill”) and Brian Howe (Devil’s Knot) as Sharon and Pete Higgins; Tony Amendola (TV’s “Once Upon A Time”) as Father Perez; and Eric Ladin (TV’s “Boardwalk Empire”) as Detective Clarkin.
Annabelle reunites the filmmakers behind 2013’s hugely successful supernatural thriller The Conjuring. James Wan, director of the global hit, is producing Annabelle with Peter Safran. John R. Leonetti, who served as cinematographer on The Conjuring, is directing. Gary Dauberman wrote the script. Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter, and Hans Ritter are the executive producers.
Also joining Leonetti behind the scenes are director of photography James Kniest, production designer Bob Ziembicki, editor Tom Elkins, and costume designer Janet Ingram. Joseph Bishara composed the score. New Line Cinema presents an Atomic Monster/Safran Company Production, Annabelle.
John Form (Horton) has found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia (Wallis)—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now... Annabelle.

Benson and Moorhead are directing from Benson’s script. Evil Dead star Lou Taylor Pucci and Nadia Hilker appear in the sci-fi horror film.
Spring follows a young man in a personal tailspin as he flees Southern California to the Italian coast, where he sparks up a romance with a woman carrying a dark secret.

"I just don't believe in the notion that you can press a button and create a franchise, but, I mean, I'm definitely planning 3 and 4…"
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows), and rising star Oaklee Pendergast (The Impossible).
