Rob Zombie Wants to Make a New Devil's Rejects Movie

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 16:40

When it comes to movies, Rob Zombie is very touch and go. First he says he wants to do something; then he'll say a month later that he doesn't want to do something. Then he'll announce something. Then that movie will be forgotten about. It's enough to drive you mad, and that's just how he likes it!

In a recent interview with Fangoria, Zombie dropped the following on fans regarding a possible new Devil's Rejects film...

I’ve always thought I’d like to make another movie because I love the characters, and I have an idea I think is solid for a third one – an idea that would make sense. The problem is, I don’t own the characters now. They’re owned by Lionsgate, and they just don’t have any desire to do anything. So it isn’t me not doing it because I don’t want to; I don’t have the ability to get it done.

Bad, evil Lionsgate! Rejecting the rejects!

New Stills Emerge from Out of the Dark

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 14:50

It's been a long while since last we talked about the new horror flick starring Julia Stiles, Out of the Dark, but with the passage of time have come new stills and more. Read on for the details, and look for more on this one soon!

From the Press Release
Vertical Entertainment and Participant Media announce that Vertical has acquired U.S. rights to Participant’s supernatural thriller Out of the Dark and slated the film for an early 2015 theatrical release.

Starring Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea, Out of the Dark is a ghost story set in South America, where a young family’s new life turns from promising to terrifying when they are forced to confront ancient legends, ghosts, and a haunting family secret.

Out of the Dark will be presented by Vertical in association with Participant Media and Image Nation. It is a production of Apaches Entertainment, Cactus Flower, and Fast Producciones in association with Dynamo and XYZ Films. The film was executive produced by Jeff Skoll, Jonathan King, Roy Azout, and Nick Spicer; produced by Belén Atienza, Cristian Conti, Enrique López Lavigne, and Andrés Calderón from a screenplay by Alex Pastor, David Pastor, and Javier Gullón; and was directed by Lluís Quílez. Out of the Dark was shot on location in Colombia and is a Spanish-Colombian co-production.

Jonathan King, Participant’s EVP, Narrative Film, commented, “Lluís is an outstanding first-time director who made a thrilling ghost story with a powerful message, and we are thrilled to have Vertical on board to deliver it to audiences.”

“We are delighted to have our first affiliation with both Participant and XYZ Films,” said Vertical’s Co-President Rich Goldberg. “Out of the Dark is much more than it seems on the surface. We think it will surprise genre fans with its ability to reach beyond just the scares and great storytelling and have a thought-provoking motif that will stay with them well after they see it.”

Goldberg and Peter Jarowey negotiated the deal for Vertical with Nate Bolotin at XYZ Films and Jeff Ivers for Participant. Bloom is handling international sales for Out of the Dark.

Two More Film-Based TV Series in the Works: Damien at Lifetime and Ashecliffe at HBO

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 14:46

We all know that these days the best horror is on TV, and two more awesome sounding new genre shows are heading to Lifetime and HBO. Read on for the early details of "Damien" and "Ashecliffe," respectively.

Per Deadline, Lifetime has given a straight-to-series pickup to "Damien," a sequel drama about what became of the evil child in the 1976 film The Omen, written by former "The Walking Dead" showrunner Glen Mazzara.

"Damien" has received a six-episode order for an early 2015 premiere. It is produced by Fox TV Studios, whose sibling Twentieth Century Fox produced the movie and where Mazzara is under an overall deal. The thriller series follows the adult life of Damien Thorn, the mysterious child from the 1976 feature who has grown up, seemingly unaware of the satanic forces around him. Haunted by his past, Damien must now come to terms with his true destiny — that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages.

“Glen Mazzara has re-imagined Damien as a dark, romantic anti-hero; and this fresh take blends complex characters with premium storytelling to make something truly original,” said Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow. Mazzara executive produces through his 44 Strong Prods. alongside Ross Fineman of Fineman Entertainment, who developed the project alongside Mazzara, and Pancho Mansfield.

As for "Ashecliffe," HBO and Paramount Television are making deals to turn the 2010 hit film Shutter Island into a TV series that's now tentatively titled "Ashecliffe." Again according to Deadline, the plan is for the pilot to be directed by Martin Scorsese from a script by Dennis Lehane, who wrote the bestselling thriller novel Scorsese and screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis turned into the hit film that starred Leonardo DiCaprio. The timing is dependent on the availability of Scorsese.

"Ashecliffe" is the name of the isolated mental hospital where the movie took place, and the series begins before the events of the film. The focus is the past of hospital and the secrets and misdeeds perpetrated by its founders, who erected the hospital in the early 20th Century and developed the methods of treatment used for the mentally ill.

Scorsese, Lehane, Kalogridis, Brad Fischer, Appian Way’s DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran Davisson, Rick Yorn, Chris Donnelly, Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Phoenix’s Mike Medavoy, and Arnie Messer will be exec producers. Tom Bernardo is working with Lehane as a co-writer of the format.

Look for more on both of these new series as it comes.

The Collector Star Josh Stewart's Directorial Debut The Hunted Dated for Release

Mon, 08/25/2014 - 14:10

Fresh off of playing the badass Arkin O'Brien in both The Collector and The Collection, Josh Stewart makes his directorial debut with the found footage flick The Hunted, headed our way next month. Full release details have just emerged from the woods so read on!

From the Press Release
THE HUNTED follows family man and hunter Jake, played by Josh Stewart, alongside his best friend Stevie (Ronnie Gene Blevins) as they journey deep into the Appalachians of West Virginia on the hunt for a legendary buck.

Chasing their dream of landing a television hunting show, the duo head into the dense, secluded mountains armed with only their bows and camera equipment. The friends quickly realize there is something else that stirs within the woods. Something that, turn by turn, begins to hunt them...

Written and directed by and starring Stewart, THE HUNTED was inspired by the actor's desire to spark his creativity and bring home his talent after spending months on the high-budget set of The Dark Knight Rises. Growing up in rural West Virginia, Stewart spent much of his youth fly-fishing and hunting in the sprawling woods where the film is set. An outdoorsman at heart, the first-time director made every effort to ensure the film would feel as authentic as possible to fellow hunters. Everything from the equipment, apparel, and even safety measures was true to form - a quality typically only found on hunting shows, not in fictional work.

Stewart said, "Anyone who's ever spent any amount of time in the woods has come across something you can't explain, especially after dark. Every hunter I know has a story. This is mine."

Before shooting began the filmmakers reached out to the most respected hunting brands in the industry. Moved by Stewart's passion and dedication to the sport, brand leaders Realtree, BowTech Archery, Scentblocker, Trophy Ridge, Leupold, and Cabela's quickly signed on to be a part of the project.

The Hunter arrives on DVD and VOD September 9, 2014.

Special Features:

  • Audio commentary with Josh Stewart and producers
  • "The True Story" featurette

    Details Revealed for New Queen Mary's Dark Harbor Mazes Soulmate and B340

    Mon, 08/25/2014 - 11:45

    Long Beach, CA, you've been waiting for it. and the announcement is here! Your illustrious Queen Mary has unveiled the names of the two new mazes heading to Dark Harbor this Halloween season: Soulmate and B340! Read on for the details.

    When the Queen Mary took her maiden voyage in 1936, she was considered the finest ocean liner ever built. Today she serves as home to museums, restaurants, and all types of presentations. But when Halloween rolls around, she gets ugly (much like anyone who took their maiden voyage in 1936…OH!).

    Dark Harbor is the Queen Mary's haunted showcase, and this year's event promises to be the best one yet with the addition of the Soulmate and B340 mazes.

    All the details and stories behind the new mazes and the haunt's previously announced Exclusive Encounter are below. The Queen Mary's Dark Harbor opens on October 2 and runs through November 2. Be sure to visit the Queen Mary Dark Harbor website now to book your tickets and get into the spirit of things. Halloween is just around the corner!

    From the Press Release
    The Queen Mary’s Dark Harbor will rise from the haunted bows of a rich, torrid history to scare all those who dare this Halloween season. Dark Harbor is pleased to unveil two brand new mazes, Soulmate and B340, and the Exclusive Encounter unlike any other haunted experience onboard the infamous cruise liner.

    Graceful Gale was the belle of The Queen Mary in the 1930s. As a beautiful first class passenger Gale charmed her way across the ship’s dance floor regularly until mysteriously disappearing on her final passage in 1939. The new Soulmate maze will take over the former location of the Containment maze and bring to life the haunted spirit of the frightful Graceful Gale. The story of Gale will unravel as her true spirit is revealed and those who dare will realize that Gale may not be as graceful as she appeared, but in fact is more monstrous than ever imagined. Gale will haunt The Queen Mary in order to lure suitors into her possession. Once she captures their hearts she will have her adoring minions cut them up and reassemble them to create her "perfect mate". But Gale isn’t so easy to please and only a few creatures are suitable enough to be her dance partner. The rest of the rejects are doomed and outcast to haunt the Queen at night.

    On a 1948 Atlantic voyage, third class Queen Mary passenger Samuel was locked away in Room B340 after a violent outburst. After hours of isolation, crew found Samuel in his room, violently ripped apart. Murdered or self-induced suicide, no one knows. B340 is a new maze through Samuel the Savage’s schizophrenic journey of isolated decent into insanity. Travel through his warped mind literally and figuratively, ultimately reaching the final resting place, but only after visitors navigate a mirage of virtual B340s. Samuel is on the loose, he’s dangerous and completely out of his mind. Through his maze you may lose your own mind and find it impossible to escape.

    The new Exclusive Encounters on board the Queen Mary will take a very limited number of thrill seekers on a terrifying top secret paranormal journey through the depths of the ship that have never been open to Dark Harbor guests before. Those who dare to voyage on an Encounter will be so brave they will have to sign their life away and hope that they return safely to land.

    The Monster Midway, Freakshow, Mechanical Monster, The Ringmaster, and all of the terrifying spirits of the Queen will return for the horror amidst freaks, food, and live entertainment. The terror begins October 2 and runs for 20 haunted evenings through November 2 from 7 p.m. to midnight. Ticket prices start at just $20 online, with Fast Fright, VIP Passes, and lodging packages available. Season passes are also an option for optimal adrenaline seekers.

    New Artwork Unveiled for Adam R. Steigert's Not Human

    Mon, 08/25/2014 - 11:30

    Back in January 2012 we got the first word on Ombis, which then became Ombis: Alien Invasion and is now known as Not Human. After some false starts, the film is finally arriving on VOD and DVD, and it's gotten some new artwork to celebrate.

    The film was directed by Adam R. Steigert and written by Steigert, Janeen Avery, Terry Kimmel, Mark Mendola, and Michael Sciabarrasi. Not Human stars Richard Satterwhite, Jason John Beebe, and Sara Manzella along with Kathy Murphy, Alexander Sloan McBryde, Brenda Rickert, and Aryn Fitzgerald.

    DefTone Pictures Studios Inc. and Origin Releasing are releasing Not Human on VOD on September 9th, followed by a DVD push out to retail markets in December. For more info in the meantime, be sure to visit the official Not Human website.

    Synopsis:
    Not Human follows the story of peaceful, rustic Metzburgh: a quiet village which was a former industrial town whose glory days are long past after the collapse of Metzburgh Grain. A meteorite crash lands in the peaceful community. Glen, a homeless ex-employee of the grain silos, gets too close to the crash site as a chemical poison sprays out of the meteorite, enveloping him. The chemical agent known only as Ombis begins to turn his insides into a slimy substance. Glen is discovered by lovebirds Mark and Lucy as the Ombis begins to consume Glen’s body and spread the alien infection.

    Shocked by their gruesome discovery, Mark and Lucy contact local sheriff Thomas Brackett, who aids the traumatized couple.

    1970s Vamps Battle Evil in Author Christopher Buehlman's The Lesser Dead

    Mon, 08/25/2014 - 11:00

    Christopher Buehlman's The Lesser Dead, a ferocious and funny look at vampires living in 1978 New York City, is told by Joey Peacock—a perpetually fourteen-year-old vampire who lives underground in the city's tunnels. It arrives October 7th from Ace Hardcover.

    While riding the subways one night, Joey (a very questionable narrator) discovers that his group might not be the city’s apex predators when he witnesses a small group of children hypnotize a businessman and lead him away into the subway tunnel.

    What follows is a gruesome game of cat and mouse between New York’s vampire residents and an ancient evil.

    Check out the novel's cover art and official synopsis below.

    Synopsis:
    "The secret is, vampires are real and I am one.
    The secret is, I’m stealing from you what is most truly yours and I’m not sorry... "

    New York City in 1978 is a dirty, dangerous place to live. And die. Joey Peacock knows this as well as anybody—he has spent the last forty years as an adolescent vampire, perfecting the routine he now enjoys: womanizing in punk clubs and discotheques, feeding by night, and sleeping by day with others of his kind in the macabre labyrinth under the city’s sidewalks.

    The subways are his playground and his highway, shuttling him throughout Manhattan to bleed the unsuspecting in the Sheep Meadow of Central Park or in the backseats of Checker cabs, or even those in their own apartments who are too hypnotized by sitcoms to notice him opening their windows. It’s almost too easy.

    Until one night he sees them hunting on his beloved subway. The children with the merry eyes. Vampires, like him… or not like him. Whatever they are, whatever their appearance means, the undead in the tunnels of Manhattan are not as safe as they once were.

    And neither are the rest of us.

    Watch a NSFW Clip from Moebius; Win an Autographed Poster

    Mon, 08/25/2014 - 10:30

    To score yourself the one-sheet you see below, autographed by its centerpiece Lee Eun-woo, just send us an email at contests@dreadcentral.com including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. We’ll take care of the rest.

    This contest will end on at 12:01 AM PT on August 28th.

    Synopsis:
    When she catches her husband having an affair, a woman attempts to castrate the cheater for his wrongdoing. Unsuccessful, she instead inflicts the unspeakable act on her own son, setting off a series of grotesque yet provocative events ranging from a hurried genital transplant to pain-inflicted orgasms that all merge in a continuous thread of delirious storytelling. With both husband and son damaged and living in grief, the wife returns as the family heads towards destruction even more horrific than before.

    Kim Ki-Duk, whose signature style pushes the limits of challenging filmmaking and often blows right through them, won the Golden Lion with Pieta at the Venice Film Festival last year. The prolific director is set to shock audiences again with Moebius, his latest perverse statement on family tensions, sexual boundaries, and society’s issues with each.
