Around these parts werewolf movies get a lot of love and not in that whole nasty beastiality kind of way. Well, not entirely... I've personally seen MattFini get a little too eager around them. In any event, if you're a fan too, here's another one for your pack!
Below you'll find a still, trailer and two bits of artwork for the indie werewolf flick Hunger Unholy, which was written and directed by Nicholas Holland. Laura Kriss, JT Taylor, Nate Burud, Nicholas Holland, Lillian Lamour, and Jordan Kantola star.
After the funeral of her boyfriend Gabe's parents, Kelly heads up north to the family cabin with him and a few of their friends as he prepares to sell it. Things quickly begin to spiral out of control though when their friends begin to disappear one by one with the rising of the full moon.
Guillermo del Toro's highly acclaimed loose remake of the 1968 classic Hasta el Viento Tiene Miedo (Even the Wind Is Afraid) entitled The Devil's Backbone is finally getting the Blu-ray treatment, and you can read on for details right here!
Look for it in stores on July 30th.
The most personal film by Guillermo del Toro is also among his most frightening and emotionally layered. Set during the final week of the Spanish Civil War, The Devil’s Backbone tells the tale of a ten-year-old boy who, after his freedom-fighting father is killed, is sent to a haunted rural orphanage full of terrible secrets. Del Toro effectively combines Gothic ghost story, murder mystery, and historical melodrama in a stylish concoction that reminds us—as would his later Pan’s Labyrinth—that the scariest monsters are often the human ones.
Another bit of early eye candy has made its way from the Las Vegas CinemaCon to the weird wide web, as the first artwork for the recently named Where the Devil Hides (formerly The Occult and The Devil's Rapture) has arrived!
Look for Where the Devil Hides to be in theatres on October 11th, 2013.
Directed by Christian E. Christiansen, the flick stars Jennifer Carpenter, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Colm Meaney, Stacey Edwards and Ric Reitz.
Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town's vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or, as most believe, a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders, or an horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural?

What's your take on Deputy Shelby? Whose side is he on? Now that Norma has been arrested, we'll have to watch and see how she would get herself out of that jam. Let's hope both mother and son are not separated for too long in tonight's episode.
SPOILER ALERT: Do not read any further if you haven’t watched the episode yet. This is a recap with specific details from this episode. Continue only if you have already watched it.
After spending the night with Bradley in her bed, Norman walked home with a spring in his steps and a grin on his face. Walking in through the kitchen, he encountered a breakfasting Dylan who reported lackadaisically that Norma was in jail, but only after being asked. Norman was knocked off his revelry.
Norma sat in the prison holding cell all by herself before she was visited by Norman and Dylan. When Norman asked her what they could do to help her, she replied very sarcastically, attacking Norman's devotion. Luckily Dylan shut her up with the fact that her bail was set at one hundred thousand dollars. When Dylan suggested using the motel as collateral, she refused help and told them both to leave her be. "Given what happened you don't need any help?" Dylan retorted knowingly. Norma darted a look at Norman and realized that Dylan knew about the rape and the killing. She yelled at them to leave her. After Dylan stormed off, Norman still wanted to help Norma but she wouldn't even look at him. Was that hurt on his face?

Norman was going through the piles of paperwork at the motel, not finding what he was looking for. Emma showed up and tried to offer her condolences. She even offered Norman to stay with her and her father which he declined. Norman finally found the deed to the motel and could get bail money for Norma. Emma offered to drive Norma and he accepted.
Trekking through the woods to work with his henchman buddy Ethan, Dylan tried to ask if he could get an advance from their employer so that he could get a place for Norman and himself but Ethan scoffed at Dylan's asking amount.
In a prison cell, Deputy Shelby brought Norman some food but she was not hungry. The deputy could only just leave her the tray and left.
Emma drove Norman to a bails bond store but no one was there then. While waiting outside, Norman started to tell her that he found the girl from the picture journal. He would not say where he found the girl but reported that the girl wasn't there anymore. Emma kept peppering Norman with questions and scolded him for not telling her the details. He tried to stop Emma from freaking out, stating that he couldn't do anything about the girl until the situation with his mom has been sorted out. Emma reluctantly agreed and leaned in to kiss Norman. When Emma asked if Norma did it, Norman lied with a straight face.
Lying in bed, Norman finally texted Bradley since leaving her bed. While reminiscing about the time he spent with Bradley, Norman was interrupted by a text update from the bail bonds guy. Norma would be released in the morning. That definitely put a damper on the fantasy!
In the morning, Norman waited outside the Sheriffs station in the rain with a bouquet of flowers. When Norma came out, she continued to give Norman the cold shoulder. Norma continued to not speak to Norman and ended acted a little childishly, while they waited for an attorney. When the attorney tried to create a defense strategy for Keith Summers' murder, Norma got offended. After a quick exchange, Norma ended the meeting and stormed out.
On their drive home, Norman tried to appeal to Norma to be more serious about her defense but she only zeroed in on how Norman went out and got laid while she was at home crying the other night. After some passive-aggressive exchanges, Norman revealed that Norma had done things that didn't make sense to him and she scared him. That got her even angrier and she yelled at him to get out of the car. When Norman hesitated, Norma got out of the car, went to the passenger side and dragged Norman out.
Norman watched her drive away and started walking himself. Dylan found Norman and gave him a ride. Along the way, Norman discover an unexpected joy of having a cool older brother and was grinning from ear-to-ear. Another great scene by Freddie Highmore. Back home, in the kitchen, Dylan started schooling Norman on dealing with their mother, comparing her to being addicted to drama and recommended that he leave her. "You don't just walk away from your parents" Norman retorted and Dylan realized that Norman didn't know any better. So Dylan announced that he's getting his own place down by the beach with ocean view and told Norman to go live with him, whether Norma went to jail or not. Norman still refused.
Heading to work, Dylan received a loan from his henchman buddy Ethan. It wasn't an advance but a loan from Ethan himself, for Dylan and his brother. Ethan wanted Dylan to succeed in their line of work and make him look good for bringing Dylan in. A guy who looked like a druggie walked up to their truck. Ethan nonchalantly asked the druggie if he got his act together, to which he responded by pulling a gun at Ethan, shot him in the neck and ran away. Dylan managed to drive Ethan to the emergency room and got help. Hm.. If Ethan dies, he got free money. If Ethan lives, Dylan would be hailed the hero. Win-win, don't you think?
Near a dock, Norma drove up to Deputy Shelby's truck and got it. He apologized for having to arrest Norma. When he started telling her that it was too dangerous for them to see each other, Norma got angry and stormed out of his truck. He stopped her and confessed his love for Norma, insisting that he was in hell because he couldn't do anything to help her. That softened her up and they shared a passionate kiss. He promised to figure out how to get Norma off. What do you think is the deputy's game? Or is he really smitten by Norma?
At the Sheriffs station, Deputy Shelby distracted the administrator and broke into the evidence room. He went on to steal the watch evidence, the one with carpet fibers that everyone kept talking about.
Driving around in Ethan's truck, Dylan was still in shock over the shooting when he happened upon the shooter at a deserted area. Dylan proceeded to chase him down and ran him over. Looking back, Dylan seemed surprised at what he just did.
At the library, Emma was doing research on Keith Summers' properties and learned the name of his boat.
Back at the motel, a mopey Norma got a phone call from her attorney, Rebecca Craig. The intrepid attorney had wanted to run their own test on the carpet sample and learned that the fiber sample evidence has disappeared and so, Norma's case was closed.
Norman tried to reach Bradley but only got her voicemail and proceeded to leave an awkward but endearing message. Norma rushed in happily and announced that her case would be thrown out of court because of the lost evidence. When Norma thought Deputy Shelby might have had something to do with that, Norman got agitated and accused Norma of trading sexual favors for that act. Well, not exactly but that's what I imagined a deranged codependent Norman would think.
Outside, Emma drove up because she had an idea where the girl in the picture journal might be.
Emma stopped at a dock so that she and Norman could talk. While listening to Emma's theory, Norman kept checking his phone, still looking for Bradley's reply. Emma went on and on about her investigation before stopping to confront Norman about his phone-checking. Norman confessed that he was with Bradley now because he had sex with her. Emma, who was obviously hurt, tried to brush it off as only a hook up because she didn't change her Facebook relationship status. Poor girl. Despite her sniffles, she even managed to explain where the girl might have been hidden. Smart theory.
Breaking into Keith Summers' boat, the Seafarer, at night, Norman & Emma investigated the inside and found the Asian girl locked in a closet. That reveal was kinda freaky, wasn't it?
Emma and Norman drove back to the motel and carried the passed out girl into an empty room. They tried to clean her up.
Leaving the office, Norma saw Emma's car and went to investigate thinking the worst of Norman and stormed into the room surprising Norman, Emma and the Asian girl. Norman explained to Norma that this was the girl in Deputy Shelby's basement. Even when the girl collaborated on the story and that the deputy kept her as a sex slave, Norma still refused to believe. Norma ran back to the office to grab a newspaper with the deputy's picture in it. The girl saw the picture and confirmed it. Norma became speechless.
So the deputy had his own sex slave? Having Norma for free wasn't enough? What do you think would happen to the deputy now, given Norma's proclivity to have dead exes. Tell us in the comment sections below. Spoiler alert: Mike Vogel who plays Deputy Shelby, is the lead in the new series "Under The Dome".
The first one-sheet from artist Alex Pardee for director Bobcat Goldthwait's new Bigfoot film Willow Creek has arrived and it is - just as the site that debuted it - pretty damned badass. Check it out!
As reported earlier Goldthwait has shot and completed his next movie entitled Willow Creek, and it is a cinéma vérité-style flick about Bigfoot. What's interesting is that the project isn’t a schlocky horror picture. Goldthwait has apparently mixed satire with some suspense, and overall his film is apparently rather driven by “exploring the idea of bearing witness.” The flick is home to various characters who believe they’ve seen the elusive Sasquatch. Each of them give differing accounts and at times even come to blows. Goldthwait is said to use this kind of tension to get in some observations on faith and religion.

The first bit of casting news for Dante Tomaselli's remake of Alfred Sole’s 1976 child slasher opus Alice, Sweet Alice has arrived with the addition of "Cold Case" star Kathryn Morris taking on the lead role of Catherine Spages, mother to a psycho killer kid.
The Inquisitr recently caught up with Tomaselli who went over some facts about his soon to be filming redux. “All of the same characters for the most part. Similar situations, though sometimes different outcomes. Wouldn’t it be boring to know what’s coming next? Definitely some new surprises, but I can’t reveal. You won’t know where it’s going. As far as locations, it’s working-class Italian Catholic Paterson, New Jersey. The main difference is whereas the original was set in the 60s, the new one will be in the 70s.”
In the original, "Paula Sheppard is Alice, a pouty, petulant problem child at that awkward age living with her precocious little sister, Karen (Brooke Shields), and single mom. When Karen is murdered during her first communion and Alice takes her place in line, suspicion immediately falls on her. Then a diminutive killer in a yellow slicker and opaque mask continues the reign of terror, and Alice’s estranged father takes up the investigation to prove her innocence."
Look for more on this one soon!

Word has just come to us that actor Tony Goldwyn has joined the cast of Divergent, based on Veronica Roth's young adult trilogy of the same name. Read on for the latest on this new flick from Summit Entertainment.
From the Press Release
Summit Entertainment, a LIONSGATE® (NYSE: LGF) company, announced today that Tony Goldwyn has joined the cast of the studio’s highly anticipated feature film adaptation of DIVERGENT, starring Golden Globe® nominated Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet. The film will also feature Ray Stevenson, Maggie Q, Mekhi Phifer, Jai Courtney, Miles Teller, Zoë Kravitz, Ansel Elgort, Ben Lloyd-Hughes, Ben Lamb, Christian Madsen, and Amy Newbold. Currently filming in Chicago, the futuristic action adventure based on author Veronica Roth’s New York Times best seller is being directed by Neil Burger from a script by Vanessa Taylor. The original draft of the script was written by Evan Daugherty. Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing the project via their Red Wagon Entertainment banner along with Pouya Shahbazian. Red Wagon’s Rachel Shane is executive producing alongside John J. Kelly. Summit will release the film theatrically in North America in THE HUNGER GAMES slot on Friday, March 21, 2014.
Goldwyn will portray Andrew, Tris’ father, in DIVERGENT. He currently stars as President Fitzgerald Grant on the wildly popular ABC hit "Scandal." His feature acting credits include THE PELICAN BRIEF, KISS THE GIRLS, NIXON, THE SUBSTANCE OF FIRE, THE LAST SAMURAI, and GHOST.
DIVERGENT is a thrilling 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.
The extremely popular young adult novel Divergent was written by first time author Veronica Roth and has topped the New York Times Best Sellers list ever since being published in May of 2011 by Katherine Tegen Books/HarperCollins Publishers. The book was written by Roth while she was earning her undergraduate degree at Northwestern University. She followed her first novel with the book Insurgent, which has also made its way to the #1 position on specific New York Times Best Sellers lists. To date, book sales are now over 3 million copies for both novels combined, and both titles are HarperCollins' most successful e-books ever in regards to sales. The studio acquired the film rights to the novel in early 2011 several months before the book Divergent was published.
DIVERGENT marks another strategic foray for Summit into producing material for young adults, building on Summit and corporate parent Lionsgate’s leadership in the young-adult genre. Summit’s TWILIGHT SAGA franchise has grossed more than $3.3 billion at the worldwide box office, and the first film of Lionsgate’s THE HUNGER GAMES franchise is the 13th highest-grossing North American release of all time.
Erik Feig, Lionsgate Motion Picture Group’s President of Production, and Gillian Bohrer, Lionsgate’s SVP of Production, are overseeing the project for the studio.

Starring Josh Brolin, Elizabeth Olsen, and Sharlto Copley, Oldboy was directed by Spike Lee from a script by Mark Protosevich (I Am Legend, The Cell, Thor). The film was produced by Roy Lee, Doug Davison, and Nathan Kahane.
Oldboy is a provocative, visceral thriller that follows the story of an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.
