The film opens nationwide on April 19th including New York; Los Angeles; Boston; San Francisco; Chicago; Philadelphia; Washington, DC; Miami; Dallas; Houston; Detroit; and more. The flick is rated R for "disturbing violent and sexual content, graphic nudity, language and some drug use."
Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station and, together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster), forms part of the "Big H Radio Team". A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, "a gift from the Lords". She assumes it's a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords' record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.
Later Whitey plays the Lords' record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.
The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they're expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they're out for BLOOD.
Zachary Quinto's producing gig for his Before the Door Pictures production company, the elevated horror film The Banshee Chapter, has scored itself some distribution; and we have the details for you right here. Dig it!
From the Press Release
XLrator Media has acquired all U.S. rights to writer/director Blair Erickson’s 3D horror-thriller THE BANSHEE CHAPTER starring Ted Levine (The Silence of the Lambs), Katia Winter (“Dexter”) and Michael McMillian (“True Blood”). XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon announced the deal today.
The film was produced by Sunchaser Entertainment’s Stephanie Riggs, Before the Door’s Corey Moosa and Sean Akers, and Christian Arnold-Beutel. Zachary Quinto and Neal Dodson of Before the Door executive produced with Ben Samuels, Marcus Schoefer and Gudrun Giddings. The deal was negotiated by Gordon and Mike Radiloff for XLrator Media and CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
THE BANSHEE CHAPTER centers on a female journalist (Winter) who follows the mysterious trail of a missing friend (McMillian) who had been experimenting with mind-altering chemicals developed in secret government drug tests. A fast-paced blend of fact and fiction, the story is based on real documents, actual test subject testimony, and uncovered secrets about covert programs run by the CIA.
"In keeping with our commitment to foster first-time feature directors, Before the Door is proud of our collaboration with THE BANSHEE CHAPTER writer/director Blair Erickson. He has created a movie that is as scary as it is intelligent and rooted in a fascinating and factual historical context. We’re excited about partnering with XLrator Media to bring this unique vision to audiences this fall," said Zachary Quinto.
“We’re thrilled to work with the producers of MARGIN CALL on the release of their first genre film,” said Gordon. “Shot in 3D, the film’s seamless blend of fact and fiction, archival footage and historically accurate recreations creates a nightmarish experience of stunning realism and intensity.”
Before the Door's first feature, J.C. Chandor's MARGIN CALL, premiered at Sundance in 2011, received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Screenplay and won the Best First Feature award at the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards. The company has also produced Chandor’s next film ALL IS LOST starring Robert Redford and the Victor Quinaz-directed comedy BREAK UP AT A WEDDING, both of which will be released later this year.
Sunchaser Entertainment produced the Tony Honor-nominated documentary THE STANDBYS about Broadway understudies and standbys which will be released in theaters later this year.
Christian Arnold-Beutel is the Germany-based executive producer of THE LEDGE, FLYPAPER and IRONCLAD among other films.

The world is 70% water. Think about that. There is absolutely no way to know exactly what kinds of creatures have yet to be discovered. Then again... sometimes it's the things that we do know exist that can be the most deadly.
In pre-production now from director Andrzej Bartkowiak and writer Armand Speca comes Beneath the Deep. Check out a lengthy synopsis and the first artwork below.
The Jack Knife is a ninety-nine-foot long floating resort whose Captain, JACK COOLEY, prides himself on knowing all the best secret spots for diving. His crew consists of his brother BILLY, his first mate TOM, and the beautiful GINA, a talented cook who is putting herself through medical school.
Their latest group of adventurers includes a thrill-seeker named JONAH, twin sisters CHRIS and WYNN, newlyweds SARA and SEAN, and a middle-aged bickering couple named EMMET and JILL. The Jack Knife hits the high seas for three days of exotic dives and three nights of partying. In the middle of a session on the water, a pair of sharks threatens the group. While Tom is able to get the divers safely into the boat, Jack finds himself answering harsh questions from Jill about the safety of his preferred diving spots. Meanwhile, another faction of divers pressures Jack to take them to more adventurous and unseen spots. Jack reassures everyone that they are safe and promises to take everyone to a spot with spectacular wrecks ripe for exploration.
The spot is everything Jack promised and more. Sara and Sean sneak away and find an island, which provides them the privacy they desire. A sudden squall rips through the ocean and sends the boat into a remote cove. The boat capsizes, and all of the food onboard is contaminated in the saltwater. With their communications jammed, Jack tries to figure out how they are going to repair the boat, tend to the injured, and get the hell out of the cove.
Before long, they realize they are not alone.
A massive saltwater crocodile attacks Billy. As Gina tends to his wounds, Jack and Tom try to corral the divers into one location. Gina discovers that Billy’s wound is already infected. Jack, who has some experience with saltwater crocodiles, tells her that the beast’s teeth are toxic.
When the group is again attacked, Jack realizes that there is more than one angry crocodile coming after them. A male and a female, protecting their young.
As the crocodiles begin picking off the vacationers one by one, Jack and his crew must come up with a plan to fight back.
“Beneath the Deep” is a pulse-pounding action-adventure story in the vein of “Jaws” and “Jurassic Park.” Director Andrzej Bartkowiak amps up the tension and thrills, delivering a fast-paced story of survival that is sure to excite audiences all over the world.

Another found footage film is on its way, and according to it... some footage should not be found. For some reason that's nice and foreboding enough for us to pay attention so read on for the first look and details.
From the Press Release
Mad Science Films, the Cardiff-based production company behind NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: RESURRECTION and SILENT NIGHT, BLOODY NIGHT: THE HOMECOMING, are pleased to announce that production is set to begin on their third feature film, KERB CRAWLERS.
KERB CRAWLERS will be the third feature film to be directed by James Plumb, who co-wrote the script with award-winning writer David Melkevik. Cinematography will be handled by Victoria Rodway.
Director James Plumb had the following to say, “I’m absolutely thrilled to finally be working with David Melkevik on a feature film. Reading over the script now, it’s hard to tell which of us wrote which sick joke and which depraved set piece. We’re aiming for this to be the last word in found footage films.”
Based in Cardiff, Mad Science Films' previous productions include ‘Night of the Living Dead: Resurrection’, which will be released on 30 April by Grindstone Entertainment Group & Lionsgate Home Entertainment in the US and on 13 May by 4Digital Media in the UK, and ‘Silent Night, Bloody Night: The Homecoming’, which will be released later this year by Elite Entertainment in the US and 101 Films in the UK.
Principal photography begins on 13 June 2013.
Some footage should not be found... Commissioned to make a depraved snuff movie, five men abduct a young woman to be their plaything for the night. However, once the cameras start rolling, so do heads as they discover their victim belongs to another... something living inside of her... something monstrous. The tables now turned, the men will receive a lesson in true pain and torture as they become the “stars” of the film.
We still have a week and a half to wait for the return of "Supernatural" with Episode 8.20, "Pac-Man Fever," but in the meantime you can take the edge off with a look at this big batch of photos from the ep, which sees the return of Felicia Day.
"Supernatural" Episode 8.20 - "Pac-Man Fever" (airs 4/24/13, 9-10 pm)
DEAN INTRODUCES CHARLIE TO CHEAP PANTSUITS — Concerned about the physical toll the second trial took on Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) benches his brother from hunting until he heals up. So, when geektastic hacker Charlie (guest star Felicia Day) stumbles upon a case and finds the boys, Dean decides it’s time to teach Charlie how to be a hunter-in-training.
While happy to see “her highness,” the boys suspect Charlie is hiding something: a secret that could get her killed. Robert Singer directed the episode written by Robbie Thompson.
Wondering what the current possibility is that we'll see a sequel to both 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later? Director Danny Boyle recently gave the scoop to Wired while doing press for his current film, Trance.
“Who would have thought? I don’t like zombie movies. I never did. We took a genre and fucked with it. Zombie aficionados, they’re quite precious with all their rules. Like with running: “They don’t do that!” Of course there are so many manifestations of zombies now, the rule book has gone out the window. I saw one episode of 'The Walking Dead,' and it was very gripping. But the zombies were stumbling around again, which I hate. Given what we’ve just been talking about, it’s very difficult to know whether zombies are overexposed now as a concept. So it’s 40/60 whether it happens or not. But we did have an idea of where to set it and what it might be about.”
Sounds like it could happen, but we wouldn't hold our breath.

Monsterpalooza is a three-day convention featuring some of the most notable names in monsters, makeup, and special effects. It's about monsters, the people who make them, and the fans who make them popular. The event has something for everyone and includes film fests; a cool museum with original monsters; animatronics; original screen-used props, costumes, and art; discussion panels; makeup classes; and more. It's held at the Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in Burbank, and some of this year's guests included Linda Blair, Martin Landau, Danny Glover, Barbara Steele, Eric Roberts, Virginia Madsen, Tom Savini, and Kyra Schon.

Zero hour is upon us as "Defiance" prepares for its debut tonight on Syfy, and we have a look at the network's most recent promo trailer for the series, which provides a quick overview of what's in store for those of you who take a chance on this first-of-its-kind interactive video game/TV show crossover.
"Defiance" introduces a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of war and transformed by alien terra-forming machines. It centers on Jeb Nolan (Grant Bowler), the law-keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oases of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world.

There's nothing like a good old fashioned massacre. The only thing that can make one better is if they're home to young nubile babysitters. Thankfully this new indie slasher entitled Babysitter Massacre has our bases thoroughly covered.
The flick, which is directed by Henrique Couto, stars Marylee Osborn, Erin R. Ryan, Joni Durian, Tara Clark, Stephanie Michael, Mike Canestaro, Stephanie Coffey, and Alicia Lozier.
Babysitter Massacre is described as a throwback to the classic slasher films of the 70s and 80s but with a modern gritty torture element.
In Ray Falls, Ohio, on Halloween night, someone is torturing and killing young women one by one. The only thing they all have in common is they belonged to the same babysitter club in high school... Who could be doing this, and can anyone stop them?
Though the video itself slipped through the cracks when it first aired, if you're looking for a quick glimpse at the new film from Larry Fessenden entitled Beneath, you'll find it at the end. Be patient and check it out!
As reported earlier, newcomer Daniel Zovatto has booked the lead in Glass Eye Pictures' indie Beneath, which genre veteran Larry Fessenden (Wendigo) is directing.
The story follows six kids who find themselves stuck out on a lake in a rowboat being attacked by a ferocious, man-eating fish. Production is currently under way in Connecticut. Look for more on this one really soon!
Since we like to keep in the loop on all thing indie horror, Dread Central recently heard from up-and-coming filmmaker Lee Vervoort (Gun Town), who shared with us that his next project, The Truck, is currently in production in Kentucky.
According to Vervoort, The Truck follows a pair of lovers, Roger Newman and Alice Mason, who are on a weekend getaway in 1987 to explore an abandoned campground that Roger has just inherited. Along the way they encounter an old beat-up four-wheel drive truck that adds miles of terror to their trip. Is there anyone behind the wheel? Or is it driven by pure evil?
Viewers will just have to wait and find out for themselves once the film gets released later this year on November 12th. The Truck stars John Michael Morris, Rachelle Graber, Tim Emery and Andy Grace and was produced by Riley Hollow Films.
Check out some stills from The Truck below, and to learn more on Vervoort's latest, visit the film's Facebook page.
Elliot Brodsky’s spring 2013 Monsterpalooza convention was a rousing success as usual, and if you weren’t there... well, that’s just unacceptable! But to show we're happy to share - and to whet your appetites for the next one - here are some photos from the infamous event.
Held as always at the Marriott in Burbank, California, the FX-focused horror convention attracted record crowds (I’m going to go out on a limb and state that perhaps Monsterpalooza has outgrown the venue) and showcased the talents of such FX gurus as Tom Savini, Megan Areford, Mike Hill and Jordu Schell as well as dozens of other top-notch FX artists and companies in addition to an array of horror talent including Creature from the Black Lagoon’s Julie Adams, Linda Blair (The Exorcist), Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Martin Landau (Ed Wood), Barbara Steele (Black Sunday), Kyra Schon (Night of the Living Dead), horror veteran and fave Danielle Harris, and many, many others.
Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best. Like, what's more off-putting than an elevator ride? It's claustrophobic; you're trapped in a tiny box with strange people. Any number of bad things can happen. And that's the premise behind a dastardly short entitled Going Down.
Directed by Paul Solet, Going Down was shot in one day and edited in three, and it's a testament to what can be done with minimal time and resources. It's a truly effective vehicle, and the whole thing takes about five minutes. Nicely done. The film stars the amazing Marc Senter and Dinora Walcott with a score by Grammy-nominated composer Austin Wintory.
Gunther Cleary has his whole day mapped out, but a simple elevator ride shows him that life doesn't always go as planned.
While Evil Dead struggled not to plummet like so many 3D Texas Chainsaws, Scary Movie 5 proved to be a franchise that probably wasn’t worth reviving. Funny; A Haunted House was a modest hit and Scary Movie 5 bombs.
Seems the Wayans Bros. finally got their revenge against Dimension.
Back in 2006, Scary Movie 4 opened to over $40 million. Seven years later, Scary Movie 5 could only lure in $15 million. Good enough for second place on a slow weekend dominated by a baseball biopic but lousy for a once highly profitable franchise.
Why is Scary Movie 5 such a dud? Did they wait too long between sequels? Was it the lack of franchise star Anna Faris? Did audiences already get their fill of horror movie spoofing with A Haunted House? Were viewers put off by a marketing campaign built around Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan? Whatever the reason may be, I prefer to chalk it up as proof there still is hope for humanity.
Meanwhile, Evil Dead is doing what horror movies these days traditionally do in their second week – freefall. That $26 million opening weekend is being followed up by a 63% drop, down to a $9.5 million, 5th place week two. Regardless, a sequel is all but assured.
Jurassic Park 3D only dropped about 50% into 6th place its second weekend with $8.8 million. That’s a better hold than The Phantom Menace’s second week of 3D re-release but worse than Titanic’s.
And with that the box office report looks to be going on hiatus yet again for several weeks. Is there even another wide release horror movie opening between now and World War Z in late June? Eli Roth’s Aftershock is getting a wide release in May, I think. Otherwise, the summer movie season is about to begin, and that usually means slim pickings for horror fans.
If you aren't excited for the release of Manborg already, this new clip should more than get your ghost! Watch it now. Then watch it again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again.
The forces of Hell have risen to the surface of the Earth to wreak unspeakable havoc on humanity, and it will take a real superhuman to save the world. Or at least Manborg - a spectacular creature of the future and the hero of MANBORG, the cult favorite sci-fi/fantasy homage coming to select theaters and DVD on April 30, 2013, from Dark Sky Films.
The armies of Hell have taken over the Earth, and all that stands in the way of the villainous Count Draculon and humanity's total extinction is a motley crew of misfits led by the mighty Manborg: a warrior who's half-man, half-machine but all hero.
Once a young soldier killed during the first war against Hell, Manborg (Matthew Kennedy, Lazer Ghosts 2) reawakens in the future, rebuilt as a walking weapon and mankind's last hope. Struggling to learn the secret of his origins, Manborg unwittingly befriends a post-apocalyptic Australian punker (Conor Sweeney, Heart of Karl), a knife-wielding vixen (Meredith Sweeney, Father's Day), and a kung fu master (dubbed by Kyle Herbert of DRAGON BALL Z, STREET FIGHTER) before finally squaring off against Count Draculon (Adam Brooks, Father's Day) in a desperate and bloody bid to take back the Earth.
This campy, comedic action flick, which Variety called "enjoyably ridiculous," is also an affectionate and clever tribute to fan favorite '80s films and video games like The Terminator, RoboCop, and Mortal Kombat.
MANBORG is a tour de force for writer-director-editor-makeup artist Steven Kostanski, whose credits include the horror hit Silent Hill and Guillermo del Toro's forthcoming sci-fi adventure Pacific Rim. This lo-fi sci-fi epic from infamous filmmaking collective Astron-6 (Father's Day) was met with an uproariously enthusiastic reception from audiences. Executive produced by TIFF Midnight Madness guru Colin Geddes (Ultra 8 Pictures) and Toronto After Dark's Peter Kupowsky, MANBORG celebrated its world premiere at Austin's 2011 Fantastic Fest and also impressed fans at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival and Fantasia. It has played more than 30 major film festivals worldwide including Whistler, Lund in Sweden, Boston Underground, U.K. Sci-Fi, and Neuchatel in Switzerland.
