From The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister director Scott Derrickson comes a second international trailer for Deliver Us From Evil, starring Eric Bana, Edgar Ramirez, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale, and Sean Harris.

The new trailer is seriously awesome, and carries some crazy footage ranging from demonic entities to an exorcism. I think this looks like an awesome action-horror pic. You?

He joins forces with an unconventional priest (Ramirez), schooled in the rituals of exorcism, to combat the frightening and demonic possessions that are terrorizing their city.

Exclusive Preview: Syfy's Metal Hurlant Chronicles

Dread Central - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 10:30

On Monday, April 14, at 8PM, Syfy will be premiering its newest series, "Metal Hurlant Chronicles". The show is imported from French company WE Productions and follows the sci-fi anthology Metal Hurlant, better known in the United States as Heavy Metal.

We got a sneak peek and will let you know what to expect.

The episode Syfy shared with Dread Central is "King's Crown," based on a bloody tournament being held to determine the new king as the previous ruler is nearing death.

The episode is absolutely loaded with awesome fighting action featuring Michael Jai White and Scott Adkins. The athleticism and choreography displayed in the various dueling scenes is easily worth the price of admission here.

Aside from the fighting, which is obviously the centerpiece of the episode, the acting is okay and the digital effects are very good at times, but not always consistent. There are a few spots where the computer-generated images look a bit cheesy, but other times when they are outstanding.

The setting appears to be medieval times at first, but we soon see the presence of droids. We learn that the society was once a technological haven, but a corpulent and malicious king stripped his people of all technology and plunged them back into a new dark ages, keeping the technology for himself. (He did still have a Facebook page, but being the only one with access, it became kind of boring. Okay, that part's not true.)

Overall, the episode was a lot of fun. The action was top-notch, and although the acting might not have been Oscar-worthy, it was good enough to carry the story, which had a nice twist ending. And each new episode of "Metal Hurlant Chronicles" will feature a new cast, new world, and whole new story, making for a completely fresh experience every time. It's definitely worth tuning in to Syfy next Monday to see the premiere episode of "Metal Hurlant Chronicles."

Synopsis
Based on the popular comics anthology Metal Hurlant, each of the 12-episodes in this series take place on a different planet with a different cast, linked together by the presence of an asteroid, which plays a vital role in their lives – and the future of their civilization. The international cast includes James Marsters, Rutger Hauer, Michael Jai White, and Joe Flanigan.

Exclusive Interview: Jaime Pressly Talks A Haunted House 2 Too!

Dread Central - Thu, 04/10/2014 - 10:00

In A Haunted House 2, Jaime Pressly plays Megan – the lighter side of an interracial couple with more than the usual problems. A mother of two, she and her kids move in with Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) – but little does she know his possessed ex-girlfriend Kisha (Essence Atkins) is living right next door...

And there’s nothing worse than a scorned demonic woman.

Pressly is no stranger to the horror genre (her first starring role was in the straight to video sequel to Poison Ivy, back in 1997), but she’s mostly known for comedy (the actress won two Emmys for her performance as Joy in "My Name Is Earl") – so what could be more perfect than mixing the two for A Haunted House 2?

We had a chance to sit down with Ms. Pressly at a press junket in Beverly Hills and get the scary scoop, 1:1.

Dread Central: Tell me a little about how you came on to this project with Marlon.

Jaime Pressly: Well, I mean they basically approached me with it, to see if I wanted to do it and I read it, met with the producers, and director. And of course Marlon. Marlon and I have known each other for fifteen years, so this was a great opportunity to finally work together. And you know, that was that. Shoots in L.A., so I didn’t have to take my son out of school. I was all for it.

DC: So for horror fans, what can they expect? I know there is a lot of parodies in this one. What are some of your favorites that they kind of send up?

JP: I think just in general because they were really good at, Marlon and Rick who wrote it were really good about touching on every single horror film that was made. So I mean, it kind of spans every generation because you can look back at The Exorcist and then you can look at the ones like The Conjuring. Like… we completely rebuilt the set of The Conjuring. So we have the identical set to that for one part of it. Anyway, I think the greatest part is though we spoof all the horror films and it’s a comedy we still scare the crap out of people. Everybody gets scared and then you turn around and ten seconds later they are laughing because they realize, ‘Oh My God they just scared me with something that I have seen a million times in films’ and now you’re laughing because we pointed out what you were just afraid of. You know what I mean. It’s the stereotypical thing that scares you all the time for some reason and we point it out. And to the fact that it’s all the stereotypes we make fun of in general with race and what ever else. It’s pretty funny.

DC: I interviewed Essence on the set, she is so sweet. But she doesn’t like you much in the movie though, right?

JP: No, but you don’t know… Well, my character doesn’t know. My character is oblivious to everything.

DC: So, do you have any interaction with the creepy doll? (I saw her on set, great replica) Everyone seems to love the Abigail doll, which is of course, a play on Annabelle from The Conjuring.

JP: You know, the person that interacts with her the most is Marlon. But we did have her in our room. You know, it’s again… my character is oblivious. My character didn’t realize that she was turning her head or watching us during our sex scene. My character had no idea until way after the fact that she (the doll) knew what was going on. So its mainly Marlon who interacts with her.

DC: He has got such a sense of comedic timing and that’s also really important in horror, so can you tell me what it was like to act with him in some of those wacky yet scary scenes?

JP: It is always great when working on a comedy, comedy is my first love, and to be able to work with somebody who is uninhibited as I am when it comes to comedy and unafraid and quick and you know on their toes and ready at all times it makes for a really good team. And he and I work really well together. We both are really unafraid to push the envelope. We kind of loved to push the envelope and make people a little uncomfortable at times. That’s part of what comedy is about, laughing at yourself. And he and I both love doing that. It was really great to team up with somebody who likes to do comedy the same way that I do. We work really well together. He is an incredible comic. He has great timing and he would do a twenty-minute take if you would let him. (laughter) He would just keep going and going and going...

The sequel to A Haunted House catches back up with Malcolm (Wayans), who is trying to get a fresh start after having to exorcise demons out of his ex. However, moving into a beautiful home with his new girlfriend and her two children does nothing to stop the paranormal — or the humor.

Marlon Wayans, Jaime Pressly, Gabriel Iglesias, Ashley Rickards, Steele Stebbins, Essence Atkins, Affion Crocket, Dave Sheridan, Hayes MacArthur, Missi Pyle, and Cedric The Entertainer star.

Open Road Films is releasing the spoof, which is directed by Michael Tiddes and co-written by Wayans and Rick Alvarez, on April 18th.

Synopsis
Crossing new lines and breaking old barriers, A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is the sequel to the hilarious box office hit starring Marlon Wayans as Malcolm who, after exorcising the demons of his ex, is starting fresh with his new girlfriend and her two children. After moving into their dream home, Malcolm is once again plagued by bizarre paranormal events. With spine-tingling tension and hilarious punch-lines, A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 is inspired by the latest supernatural horror movie franchises and shows that this time… it’s not just the house that’s haunted!

[Interview] 'Oculus' Star Karen Gillan On What Frightened Her While Shooting and Her Favorite Horror Films!!

bloody disgusting - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 21:07

Relativity’s Oculus (review), directed by Mike Flanagan hits theaters in wide release this Friday, April 11th. You’ve seen the trailers by now and if, based on those, you even remotely think this is the movie for you, it probably is. It very much delivers on that aesthetic.

I recently sat down with the film’s lead, Karen Gillan (pictured above; “Doctor Who”, Guardians Of The Galaxy) in Austin, TX. I found her to be an energetic and engaging conversationalist, even though we had very little time to speak due to the hustle and bustle of SXSW. Still, based on her performance in this alone, she’s going places.

The story centers on a murder that left two children orphans with authorities charging the brother while his sister believed that the true culprit was a haunted antique mirror. Now completely rehabilitated and in his twenties, the brother is ready to move on but his sister is determined to prove that the haunted mirror was responsible for destroying their family.” Katee Sackhoff, Rory Cochrane, Brenton Thwaites, Annalise Basso and Garrett Ryan also star.

Check it out below!

When you read this script what was the first thing that went through your head?

[laughs] That there was a 13 page monologue I had to deal with! It was actually a lot harder to learn than if it was a conversational thing of if it had some emotional logic to it. But it wasn’t that, it was a presentation of facts. So that was a challenge. Also I just loved the story and the way it was told. I loved the two timelines. I loved that we got to make a scary horror film that’s a real character piece. Ultimately the stuff we shot was just two people in a room, really.

Did you two have time to prepare? Sometimes you don’t on these things.

Oh yeah, we rehearsed like crazy. I mean we just went to town on that. We just didn’t have any time when we were shooting, so the only way to get everything was to block it beforehand.

It’s a very technical tightrope you’re walking, I imagine it’s easy for an actor to get lost in all of it.

We needed refreshers constantly. That’s where [director] Mike Flanagan came in. He would let us know where we were in relation to everything that was happening in terms of VFX or the story. It starts off normal and gradually gets more explosive until it all comes crashing down. So it was important that we all knew emotionally where we were. Without that there would have been no logical progression.

Was there anything in the script that made you doubt if you could do the film?

Probably just that monologue. To be fair, I jumped into it and I was like, “I’m going to go for it and accept the challenge!” But there was a moment when I was working with my dialect coach and I remembered that I was going to have to talk for 10 minutes straight, in one take, in an accent that was not my own.

But content wise you were okay?

Yeah! I’m pretty into gory films and horror films! You know, it’s scary to put kids in that situation, but they had the best time.

Well now you have to tell me what your favorite horror films are.

I love horror films and grew up on them as a teenager. That’s all I would pretty much watch. Scream is my favorite. I just love that it’s directly addressing the genre and telling us what the rules are. And then executing them all as described. I loved The Exorcist, I used to watch that on my own in bed which was a terrible idea when I was younger. What else? I loved all the cheesy slashers like I Know What You Did Last Summer and there’s this one we used to watch called Death Of A Cheerleader starring Tori Spelling. I think it was a TV movie but we managed to get it on video somehow and we would watch it all the time.

Back in January, we reported on a possible zombie-themed MMO based on the H1Z1 hoax that took over the Internet a few years back. Now, that game is official. It even has an eerie teaser site.

We don’t know much about it yet, other than it will be a post-apocalyptic MMO from Sony Online Entertainment. We’ll know more when the game is revealed — with gameplay footage! — tonight at 5pm PST. Apparently, a fully playable build isn’t far off, so this game might not be too far away.

As for what it’s about, “H1Z1 is an MMO that allows players to take on the role of an apocalypse survivor who is in a world that is filled with zombies,” Smedley told Game talk Live. “A world! Not just a little tiny server.” Where do I sign up?

@Jedi_Skote you can play it yourself soon. and by play I mean play fully.

Work Comes First in this Sneak Peek of Supernatural Episode 9.18 - Meta Fiction

Dread Central - Wed, 04/09/2014 - 17:48

One thing we've learned about the Winchesters over our many years of watching "Supernatural" is that for the brothers work always comes first, as evidenced by this new clip from Episode 9.18, "Meta Fiction."

"Supernatural" Episode 9.18 - "Meta Fiction" (airs 4/15/14, 9-10pm): METATRON OFFERS CASTIEL A DEAL — Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) attempts to get Castiel (Misha Collins) to join forces with him. Still furious with Metatron, Castiel (Misha Collins) refuses, which sets a surprising plan in motion.

Meanwhile, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) capture Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett). Thomas J. Wright directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
