    Vin Diesel Gives First Look at The Last Witch Hunter

    Thu, 09/04/2014 - 18:49

    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.

    Synopsis
    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.

    Annabelle Prank Scares Up Laughs in Canada

    Thu, 09/04/2014 - 18:40

    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.

    Synopsis:
    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.

    Synapse Giving Demons and Demons 2 Bare Bones Blu-ray Releases

    Thu, 09/04/2014 - 14:53

    At the tail end of last year, Synapse Films released limited edition steelbook versions of Italian horror flicks Demons and Demons 2 on Blu-ray, which were packed with bonus features and sold out before most fans could say "Geretta Geretta."

    As reported today by DVD Active, this November Synapse will be re-releasing both of the cult favorites onto Blu-ray, leaving behind the steelbook cases as well as the bonus content. Why is this noteworthy? Because the discs at long last give those of us who missed out on last year's souped up releases the chance to own the films in high-def without breaking the bank.

    The site reports that the bare bones discs will likely have none of the exclusive extras that were available on the limited releases, though they note that both releases will include high-definition 1080p transfers taken from original vault materials in the 1.66:1 aspect ratio, featuring all-new color correction.

    Demons will contain both the international English stereo language soundtrack, as well as the U.S. Mono English alternate dub soundtrack, while Demons 2 will include only the international English language stereo track. Both movies will also feature their original U.S. theatrical trailers and newly-translated English SDH subtitles.

    The new releases will also be available on bare bones DVDs, and the release date is set for November 11th.

    The Pact 2 - Poster Premiere; Making-Of Video

    Thu, 09/04/2014 - 14:20

    The release of the sequel to Nicholas McCarthy's film The Pact, cleverly titled The Pact 2, is heading toward us like an evil spirit looking for a host, and right now we have the official one-sheet along with a look behind the scenes of production! Dig it!

    Directed by Dallas Richard Hallam and Patrick Horvath, the film stars Camilla Luddington ("True Blood"), Patrick Fischler (Mulholland Drive), Scott Michael Foster ("Californication"), Haley Hudson (The Pact), Mark Steger (The Pact), and Caity Lotz (The Pact).

    IFC Midnight has announced a VOD roll-out on September 5th, followed by a limited theatrical outing on October 10th.

    Synopsis
    Only a few weeks after Annie Barlow exterminated the plague that was the Judas Killer, we meet June Abbott, a woman whose carefully constructed life in Los Angeles is beginning to unravel due to lucid nightmares so awful they disturb her waking life.

    When Special Agent Terrence Ballard, the FBI agent assigned to wrap up the case of the newly deceased Judas Killer, shows up at June’s door, he brings with him some terrifying news – there is a Judas copycat killer on the loose in her neighborhood! In the course of his investigation, Ballard shows June a picture of the copycat killer’s victim, and she is stunned to see that it’s the same woman she saw brutally murdered in her nightmares.

    A series of hauntings begin to torment June, growing in frequency and ferocity over time. Now, not only does she see murder victims, but her dreams put herself in the role of the murderer. June fears that the spirit of the Judas Killer is the architect of some greater plan in which she must now play a part. June struggles to maintain her grip on sanity as she plunges into her own investigation of these events. No matter the result, the truth will be horrifying; either there is true evil inside of her, or someone, or something, is determined to destroy her…
