8 Horror Films Plagued By Real-Life Death Curses

Wed, 12/03/2014 - 13:30

Is it possible for a horror film to be cursed, the mere act of making it evoking some sort of malicious entity hell-bent on inflicting harm to those involved? It sounds pretty silly, I’m well aware, but the truth is that many horror films over the years have seemingly incurred the wrath of an evil force.

Of course, it’s impossible to ever know if what we’re dealing with in these situations is coincidence or something far more sinister, though the stories we’re presenting to you today certainly seem to indicate the latter. So turn off all the lights and prepare to be spooked.

Here are 8 horror films that were (allegedly) plagued by real-life death curses!

1) THE EXORCIST

One of the most infamous tales of a horror movie curse is tied to The Exorcist, many believing that an evil entity took up residence in the celluloid itself. So plagued was the production by strange occurrences that E! aired a two-hour special a decade ago to collect all of the stories together, ranging from on-set fires to nearly a dozen mysterious deaths in the immediate families of crew members.

At several points a real priest was brought in to bless the set, and he seemed sure that Satan didn’t want the film to be made. Furthering belief in the alleged curse is the fact that Jack MacGowran, who played Burke Dennings, died of influenza shortly after completing his scenes. Other oddly timed deaths included actress Valsiliki Maliaros, Max von Sydow’s brother and Linda Blair’s grandfather.

The strange activity continued after the movie was shot, with many fainting, passing out and/or vomiting upon its theatrical release. At one screening in Rome, a church nearby was struck by lightning after the audience filed into the theater, a giant cross landing in the plaza below.

2) THE OMEN (1976)

Just three years after the release of The Exorcist, The Omen fell victim to a similar rash of mysterious activity, and many cast/crew members lost their lives before, during and soon after the film was shot. Star Gregory Peck’s plane was struck by lightning, director Richard Donner was hit by a car right around the time of filming and an animal wrangler was eaten alive by one of his tigers a mere two weeks after production wrapped.

The most chilling example of the so-called “Omen Curse,” however, is tied to special effects artist John Richardson. The artist, who designed the film’s memorable decapitation scene, was involved in a fatal car accident in late 1976, which beheaded his female passenger. It’s even been rumored that when Richardson got out of the car, he saw a sign indicating that he was 66.6 miles from a town in the Netherlands called Ommen.

These stories are merely the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the Omen Curse, which nearly claimed the life of a stunt coordinator as well as the producer – the latter narrowly avoiding being struck by lightning.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Updates on Sandman Adaptation

Wed, 12/03/2014 - 13:21

It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything about the big screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comic series, and yesterday Joseph Gordon-Levitt offered up a long-awaited update on the exciting project. Read on for the latest!

In an AMA session over on Reddit, Gordon-Levitt revealed that the screenplay is still in the works and that things are coming along smoothly. As we previously reported, the actor plans on both starring in and directing the feature film.

Been doing a lot of work with David Goyer and Jack Thorne, working on the screenplay,” the filmmaker said. “We’ve been doing our meetings at the DC office, which is a frickin rad place to work. Also just had a great conversation last week with David and Mr. Gaiman. Neil has been extremely big hearted with me, and he’s the one I want to please most.”

Meanwhile, Goyer recently offered up an update of his own to Deadline, which should be music to the ears of all fans of the comic books.

I hesitate to definitively say when it might go before the cameras, but the one thing different between other iterations and ours is that Neil Gaiman has been in the room with us and is a vital part of the team,” Goyer said. “We have a draft Warners is very happy with and we’re moving forward, knock on wood.”

The Sandman series shifts between horror and fantasy, and the central character is Morpheus, the personification of dreams. After being held captive 70 years, Morpheus escapes, gains revenge, and rebuilds his crumbling kingdom while trying to adapt to the times. Warner Bros. has tried for some time to get a script right, and they may have finally cracked it.

Expect more on this one soon!

Abysm Finds a Mad Scientist on the Loose in New York City

Wed, 12/03/2014 - 13:00

We just don’t have enough mad scientist movies anymore, man. Thankfully a new flick which is filming now in New York is out to change all that. Read on for your first details on Abysm.

From the Press Release:
Dark and terrifying, ABYSM follows Sam Miller, a man who spirals into depression after the death of his brother in war-torn Iraq. Following a failed suicide attempt, Sam finds himself directed to a research facility under the supervision of Doctor Julian Loro.

Utilizing new technology, Sam undergoes a series of experiments to scan and alter human emotions. But when his neurology proves to be unlike anything they’ve seen before, Dr. Loro pushes the machine to its limits, opening unforeseen abilities within Sam: the unrestricted power to manipulate and alter the emotional state of others. Seeking gruesome revenge for those who have wronged him, Sam tries to stay one step ahead of those who want to turn him into a science experiment or, even worse, a military weapon.

Written and directed by Serge Levin (Paragon Algorithm), ABYSM stars Charles Baker (first picture below; “Breaking Bad,” Splinter) as Sam Miller, Michael Ironside (second picture below with Serge Levin; Total Recall, Scanners, Terminator: Salvation) as the scheming Dr. Julian Loro, and Alex Veadov (The Equalizer, We Own the Night) as the mysterious Kaine.

In conjunction with Isle Empire Pictures, ABYSM is being produced by award-winning filmmaker Jon Keeyes (American Nightmare, Fall Down Dead, Nightmare Box) and Matthew Panepinto (The Harrow, Redrum). They are also joined by director of photography Richard Clabaugh (The Prophecy, Phantoms, Hellraiser 3).

I thought I knew her, too. Better than anyone.

The spouse is always the first suspect. You feel guilt regardless of how far you are from the scene of the crime. I couldn’t help but feel complicit, that our mutual and growing hatred had somehow taken root and led to this. I knew it wasn’t true in a legal sense, but I felt dirty with responsibility regardless.

Maybe I never really hated my wife. Maybe she just drove me mad. Maybe I would miss her.

But mostly, I needed to know who killed her, and why…

Kingdom Come (DVD)

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 13:00

Starring Ry Barrett, Camille Hollett-French, William Foley

Directed by Greg A. Sager

Distributed by Uncork’d Entertainment

What’s that old saying? “If it looks like a duck and craps like a duck…”  You get what I’m saying. To think that I was ACTUALLY watching Saw 2 the other night before I received this film to review.

After hitting the play button, I was magically transferred to the land of derivation, whereas for at least the first 30 minutes or so of Kingdom Come from director Greg A. Sager, I was comparing both films at the same time because I could swear I was watching the same film on two screens.

After a brief supernatural interlude that swept away any remaining Jigsaw comparatives, I viewed the remainder of a film that most likely will be tossed into the ever-growing “torture-porn/abandoned location/everyone hates everyone kind of film” heap that has been growing steadily over the past few years. The art of pitching an unlikable assemblage of personas into a deserted locale so that a mysterious lunatic can play mind-games with them certainly isn’t among the freshest of ideas, but it is what we’re working with here so settle in as I prepare to castigate what could have been.

The show starts with our first sufferer of the dreaded curse simply known as “horror movie amnesia” (Ry Barrett) – he’ll fit in nicely as the movie’s archetype, shortly followed thereafter by a menagerie of color-by-numbers characters that fit every stereotype to a T. We’ve got the angry guy (Jo Jo Karume), who isn’t as tortured as everyone thinks, the beautiful lass (Camille Hollett-French), an overtly douchey bigot (Soroush Saidi), and the atypical peculiar little girl that likes to wander, doesn’t speak too often, and when she does… she’s just plain WEIRD. Add a few more no-names that are certain to be fodder for whatever otherworldly force decides to roam the hallways during the movie’s run time, and we’ve got the PERFECT setup for a movie you’ll be sure to forget soon enough.

After a (very) short time, I truly believe that the masses will forsake the supernatural life-ring that gets tossed into the deep end to give this movie a distant swim from torture-porn infested waters. As each respective character begins a daunting course to escape the sinister stronghold that encloses them, we get to learn that their past sins are truly what makes them the target. As the true terror is revealed, and the viewer can finally lay eyes upon these “demons” in all their malevolent glory, the only blood that is liable to be spilled will be from your lip, AFTER you bite it to keep from laughing at the ridiculous guises they’re donning.

After what seems like a never-ending, futile attempt for the group to escape their surroundings, a fairly respectable conclusion is offered. Unfortunately there’s a legion of plot holes that one must jump over or swerve around to get to it, and by that time there’s just been far too much time wasted on the little things before the big picture is finally illuminated. My advice? If this movie manages to materialize in front of you, it would be best to just walk on by.

Digging Up the Marrow – New Images and Artwork

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 12:30

A handful of new images and a tiny bit of artwork have arrived online for Adam Green’s latest directorial feature film, Digging Up the Marrow. Check ‘em out!

Digging Up the Marrow Release Details:
Image Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to the highly anticipated fantasy film DIGGING UP THE MARROW. Starring, written by, and directed by Adam Green and inspired by the artwork of artist Alex Pardee, the film stars Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks,” X-Men First Class), Will Barratt (Frozen), and a roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.

When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. DIGGING UP THE MARROW is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters.

“DIGGING UP THE MARROW is the result of an incredibly rewarding four-year creative collaboration,” said Green. “It’s a very unique film that doesn’t neatly fit into any specific sub-genre that has come before it. We’ve been thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response that MARROW has received at early screenings.”

The monsters in the film are vividly brought to life by visionary American artist and trans-media-artistry pioneer Alex Pardee. Under Green’s ArieScope Pictures, the film was produced by Cory Neal and was financed by Neal and Andrew Mysko’s Hacienda Film Co.

NSFW Backmask Opening Credits Play it Forward

Mon, 12/01/2014 - 11:30

We’ve been reporting on Marcus Nispel’s upcoming film Backmask for several years now, and finally we have something to actually show you other than artwork and images… the NOT SAFE FOR WORK opening credits.

Gage Golightly, Brittany Curran, Stephen Lang, Kelly Blatz, Brett Dier, Nick Nicotera, Nick Nordella, and Michael Ormsby star. Kirsten Elms penned the script that follows a group of teenagers who accidentally release an evil spirit that starts to possess them one by one.

Synopsis:
During a sex, drugs, and rock-fueled party, six small-town teenagers find an old vintage record and decide to play it backwards in order to listen for any subliminal/satanic messages. Lo and behold, a seemingly malevolent spirit quickly infiltrates the group, wreaking havoc as it moves from one body to another. Eventually, however, it’s revealed that the spirit in question is actually trying to convey a message… and that the real source of horror isn’t particularly paranormal, but rather something (or someone) much closer to home.

For many “Ghost Adventures” fans two things have become a staple of the show… hearing about (and sometimes seeing) host Zak Bagans’ haunted Las Vegas townhouse and co-investigator Nick Groff… both of which are moving on!

The sale of Zak’s home isn’t exactly news as it’s been on the market for quite some time now, but leave it to TMZ to dig up the listing. According to the site Zak is unloading his 4,700-square-foot Vegas townhouse — complete with a chrome toilet, hidden dungeon behind a bookcase, and alleged paranormal activity — for $459,000.
