The Last Witch Hunter Continues to be Hairy Good

Mon, 10/06/2014 - 16:28

Once again Vin Deisel has taken to his Facebook page to share with fans a couple of images from his latest film, The Last Witch Hunter. This guy is his own PR machine. Everyone should be as in touch with their fanbase. Check ‘em out.

Breck Eisner is directing the film, which sees 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 (Rose Leslie). The two must stop a villainous witch queen from obtaining a relic and unleashing a plague upon humanity.

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 the studio.

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.

Travel Channel Lists 10 Best Halloween Attractions of 2014

Mon, 10/06/2014 - 16:08

From Salem, Massachusetts to Orlando, Florida, the good folks over at the Travel Channel have just enlisted an expert panel to handpick the 10 best Halloween attractions of the year, which are all must-visits for horror fans who want to star in their own horror movies, rather than simply sit back on the couch and watch them.

The eclectic panel of advisors included “Ghost Adventures” lead investigator Zak Bagans, paranormal expert and author Jeff Belanger and America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions producer Arthur Hsu, each of whom added their “Travel’s Best” stamp of approval onto the list for Travel’s Best Halloween Attractions of the year.

Check out the complete list below and head over to Travel Channel for more spooky Halloween fun!

ScareHouse (Pittsburgh, PA)

ScareHouse is the place to be this year, especially because it has an exclusive partnership with Legendary Entertainment to help create the scariest Halloween to date. Featured attractions include The Summoning, Pittsburgh Zombies: Black Out and The Basement. This Halloween haunt offers a big-budget sensibility without losing its hometown appeal. “ScareHouse is my pick because sociologist and ‘fear expert’ Margee Kerr is always on staff to research and develop new ways to truly disturb visitors,” says geek culture and paranormal pop-culture expert Aaron Sagers.

Fright Dome (Las Vegas, NV)

Located in Circus Circus’ Adventuredome, the Fright Dome is one of Las Vegas’ largest and longest-running Halloween attractions. With 6 new haunted houses, the theme park is transformed into a pitch-black, lights-out, haunted spectacle – easily making it the scariest on the Strip. The 5-acre theme park also includes 25 rides and attractions, multiple live shows at night and 4 new scare zones, including the Clown Overload Zone. “My personal nightmare of clowns with glowing eyes surrounding me came to life,” says Zak Bagans, lead investigator of Ghost Adventures. “I had the worst panic attack. Needless to say, I’ll go back again, because it was badass!”

Netherworld (Atlanta, GA)

With more than 200 animated monsters and 100 live actors, Netherworld is one of the nation’s most famous attractions. Having been featured on TV and in movies such as Zombieland, this spooky attraction has amazingly detailed sets. “And unlike other Halloween attractions, Netherworld’s creepy characters greet patrons in the parking lot before they purchase tickets, scaring them off before they even enter,” says Larry Kirchner, owner of and Halloween Productions.

The 13th Gate (Baton Rouge, LA)

The 13th Gate is one of the most, if not the most, elaborately detailed haunted houses in America, thanks to a construction crew that includes award-winning set designers, lighting and sound technicians, and special-effects artists. Sets are over-the-top and feature live animals, including snakes and gators. In each of the 13 themed indoor and outdoor areas, more than 100 professional actors and 12 special makeup artists help bring the horror to life. “Hollywood production companies have rented the attraction multiple times to film movies such as The Reaping,” says HauntWorld Magazine owner Larry Kirchner. “The 13th Gate is, without any doubt, one of the best haunted houses in America.”

Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum Haunted House (Weston, WV)

The Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum is one of the most memorable haunted locations for Ghost Adventures lead investigator Zak Bagans, who completed a live 7-hour investigation with the Ghost Adventures crew. The spirits that roam the asylum’s halls are extremely active, and tours are offered to see how the mentally insane lived and died within these walls. “It is undeniably the scariest overall haunted attraction that I’ve been to in the US,” Zak says. Additionally, visitors can participate in zombie paintball, a fall festival and the Asylum Ball, which includes a costume contest.

13th Floor Haunted House (Denver, CO)

The 13th Floor Haunted House is the largest and longest indoor haunted attraction in Colorado. It was renovated this year with 2 new attractions. “Watch evil take control of unwilling bodies in Undead: The Possession, or run for your life as terrifying ghouls and monsters come alive as you walk through Dwellings of the Dead,” says video project manager Arthur Hsu. Equipped with state-of-the-art technology such as Microsoft Kinect, the robotic monsters are more than capable of frightening the victims who dare to venture into the 13th Floor.

Bennett’s Curse (Jessup, MD)

This haunted spectacle outside Baltimore is one of the top Halloween attractions in the mid-Atlantic region. It features 3 terrifying haunted houses — Medieval Underworld, Inferno 3D and Sanctuary of Insanity — and the owners of this popular haunt continue to add monsters and twists to keep the attractions exciting for new and returning visitors. Arthur Hsu says, “Not only has Bennett’s Curse been featured on Travel Channel’s America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions 3, but it has consistently been ranked by several sources as one of the best Halloween attractions in the US.” This spooky spot is also among the first to frighten its victims with the latest cutting-edge technology.

Halloween Horror Nights (Orlando, FL)

Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Orlando should be at the top of anyone’s Halloween bucket list, especially fans looking for big-budget scares. Aaron Sagers says, “Movie industry experts craft haunted houses so loaded with detail that visitors walk through and feel like they’ve been dropped into an episode of The Walking Dead or the movie From Dusk Till Dawn.” Other popular attractions featured at the theme park include Bayou of Blood, Dollhouse of the Damned and Roanoke – Cannibal Colony. Those willing to face their fears can also enter, at their own risk, the Halloween house for a face-to-face meeting with Michael Myers, the iconic masked slasher from the movies.

Festival of the Dead (Salem, MA)

Salem, MA, is historically known for the 1692 Witch trials that left 20 people executed. This year’s Festival of the Dead includes 2 weeks of events and parties designed to bring out your inner Witch. Attend a séance to speak with the dead, share your stories with others at the Mourning Tea, pick up new ghost-hunting techniques or learn about death’s macabre customs and strange rituals. Finish the festival with the Official Salem Witches’ Ball on Oct. 31, and you’ll leave this town spellbound. Author, TV personality and paranormal expert Jeff Belanger says, “This town will cast a spell on you.”

Queen Mary (Long Beach, CA)

The Queen Mary was built in the early 1930s as a luxury trans-Atlantic ocean liner, but it was pressed into military service to carry troops during World War II, when hundreds died in and around the ship. This Halloween, the haunted ship is offering its Dark Harbor tours with 4 new attractions: the Soulmate maze, the B340 maze, Voodoo Village and Monster Midway, which features a freak show, a mechanical monster and a new ride, the Sinister Swings. “Keep your eyes open, because those ghostly apparitions you see may not just be another special effect,” says Jeff Belanger. And before you go, make sure you check out the Ghost Adventures’ lockdown and investigation of the Queen Mary.

Joe Dante Howls for Vampire-Werewolf Flick Ombra Amore

Mon, 10/06/2014 - 15:52

1981 saw the release of Joe Dante’s The Howling, which is widely considered to be one of the best werewolf films of all time. Over 30 years later, Dante is once again getting ready to sprout fur and howl at the moon, and we’ve got all the info for ya today!

THR reports that the Gremlins director is heading to Rome for the vampire-werewolf love story Ombra Amore, which will be one of eight projects in the Rome Film Festival’s New Cinema Network co-production section dubbed ‘Great Beauties,’ focusing on films that promote Italy as an ideal production partner for global films.

Dante has chosen underground Rome as the setting for the vampire-werewolf love story that puts a classical Romeo and Juliet tale into today’s financial-crisis-ridden Italy.

Pete is a werewolf whose pack is a crew of hotheaded financial traders responsible for Italy’s current economic crisis. Maggie is a vampire whose family is a formerly wealthy aristocratic clan brought to bankruptcy by the greedy werewolves. Surrounded by other-worldly troubles, it remains to be seen whether or not their love can survive among the warring families.

Ombra Amore is budgeted at around $14.6 million. Dante promises “a compelling new take on a classic genre.”

Don Mancini Dreaming of Fight Between Chucky and Annabelle

Mon, 10/06/2014 - 15:41

This past weekend saw the release of Annabelle (review), and with more spinoffs of The Conjuring in the works, it seems that there’s a new reigning champion of creepy dolls at the box office.

Wouldn’t it be cool to see that title defended against the previous champion? Child’s Play creator Don Mancini thinks so, and he’s intent on making that fight a reality!

As reported by USA Today, Mancini is eying a collaboration between the two killer dolls, hopeful that someday the two will either join forces or come face to face.

I am hoping that at some future point we have Annabelle and Chucky team up,” says Mancini. “I can see that (even) in 20 years from now.”

Mancini is currently penning a seventh installment in the Child’s Play franchise, and he also expressed interest in having Annabelle make a cameo in that film, though certain legal issues will likely prevent that from happening.

We would be into it, the only problem is that we are in different studios. That would probably be years worth of red tape to work it out,” he said. “But if it all could be worked out, then yes, we’re very into it.”

So, who would win in a fight, if Annabelle and Chucky locked horns? Mancini noted that it was too early to make a prediction, but he did comment on Annabelle’s fighting prowess.

From the trailer, Annabelle is playing her fighting cards close to her chest,” says Mancini. “From what I see, her fighting style is very subtle. I want to know if she has some secret moves.”

It’s interesting to note that Annabelle director John Leonetti was the director of photography for Child’s Play 3, so there’s more of a connection between the two franchises than both being centered on a creepy doll!
