The House at the End of Time Lands on UK DVD in April

Mon, 03/30/2015 - 05:00

Alejandro Hidalgo’s acclaimed supernatural thriller The House at the End of Time (La Casa del Fin de Los Tiempos) will at last receive its UK DVD release, and we have the details and artwork for you here.

Look for it on April 27th through Matchbox Films.

Ruddy Rodriguez (The Living Daylights) stars as Dulce, a mother who lives in an old house with her young children and husband. After terrifying encounters with mysterious apparitions, the ghost of an old woman leaves Dulce a series of messages warning that her husband will kill their children. She desperately tries to avoid this prophecy but is helpless as the tragedy begins to unfold.

Dulce is sentenced to a maximum penalty of imprisonment for a crime she did not commit. Thirty years later, an elderly Dulce returns home on compassionate release. There, with the help of a priest, she will try to uncover the mystery and tragedy that has tormented her for so long.

The first horror film produced in Venezuela smashed box office records when it was theatrically released in its home territory and has since become the dark horse of the genre festival circuit, where its unique combination of jump-out-of-your seat thrills, pathos, and empathy has won over the hearts and minds of audiences worldwide, including Fantasporto in Portugal, Fantasia in Montreal, FrightFest in London, and Screamfest LA, where it won awards for Best Film and Best Director.

The House at the End of Time was previously released in the USA by MPI on its Dark Sky Films label, and a Hollywood studio remake is currently in development.

Exclusive: Michael Gross Talks Tremors 5

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 23:48

While walking about Monsterpalooza this past weekend in Burbank, CA, we came across Tremors franchise star Michael Gross, who spoke a bit about the movie’s creatures and the possibility of an all new monster.

Yes, there will be a new creature; it’s a variation of sorts on one of the existing ones… that’s all I’m saying, but trust me; it’s gonna be a whole lot of fun. With this sequel we’re hoping to reintroduce this franchise to a whole new crop of fans. I think fans of all ages are really gonna like it!

For the most part Gross was pretty tight-lipped, but he also confirmed that the beloved Ass-Blasters will be back along with the Graboids and that they’re hoping Tremors 5: Bloodlines will lead to a whole new franchise of films.

Tremors 5: Bloodlines will be coming out this October on Blu-ray Hi-Def, DVD, and Digital HD, marking the return of Michael Gross’ iconic character Burt Gummer.

Head over to the official Tremors Movies Facebook page to cast your vote for the artwork simply by leaving a comment and letting them know if you prefer Version 1 or the slightly modified Version 2. The fate of the Graboids (and Ass-Blasters) is in your hands, so be sure to choose wisely!

The theatrical release of the original Tremors in 1990 combined suspense-filled action, sci-fi imagination, and witty humor in the tale of a tiny Nevada town terrorized by giant man-eating worms known as Graboids. The Graboids eventually morphed into even more deadly creatures known as Ass Blasters.

In this all-new adventure that travels halfway around the world to South Africa, the Graboids and the Ass Blasters are not only bigger and badder, but Tremors 5 introduces an additional unexpected surprise that raises the stakes in the battle for survival.

Michael Gross (“Anger Management,” “Suits,” “How I Met Your Mother,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Family Ties,” Tremors franchise) returns as weapons enthusiast and expert subterranean creature hunter Burt Gummer with Jamie Kennedy (“The Cleveland Show,” “Ghost Whisperer,” Scream series) as his new right-hand man, tech-savvy Travis. The pair are joined by an international cast as they mount a battle against the deadly creatures that turns out to be far more than they bargained for.

The film is directed by Don Michael Paul (Jarhead 2: Field of Fire, Sniper: Legacy) from a script by John Whelpley (Tremors 3: Back to Perfection) and produced by Ogden Gavanski (The Scorpion King 4: Quest for Fire, Warm Bodies).

Box Office – Did Moviegoers Follow It Follows This Weekend?

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 23:32

A fifth place opening normally wouldn’t be considered all that impressive for a horror film, but in the case of the little horror movie that could, It Follows, that’s practically a revelation.

Though the top of the weekend box office may have belonged to an animated alien and a prison comedy, RADiUS-TWC and Dimension Films are the ones truly doing a victory lap today. The critically acclaimed teen horror flick It Follows, a movie originally destined for a handful of theaters and a VOD release until the distributors decided to roll the dice and expand it from 32 to 1,200 theaters this weekend, landed in fifth place with about $4 million.

According to Box Office Mojo, they’re so ecstatic they’re planning to expand it to even more theaters next weekend.

What makes the success of It Follows all the more astounding is how its success is due almost entirely to word-of-mouth. Print and advertising has been nominal, though I expect that will change in the coming week.

All the more surprising given this horror flick displays far more Sundance sensibilities than the typical jump scare heavy ghost/possession films we’ve been inundated with at the box office of late.

Whether moviegoers will continue to follow It Follows remains to be seen. One thing is for certain: We’re going to be seeing a whole lot more of burgeoning scream queen Maika Monroe in the near future.

Horror returns to the box office in late April with another film festival darling getting a wide release: Unfriended, which hopes to do for social media what Paranormal Activity did for found footage. At this point I’m not entirely sure that’s a good thing.

Scream 4’s Aimee Teegarden Heads Down the Well for Rings

Sun, 03/29/2015 - 13:39

Filming has officially begun on F. Javier Gutierrez’ Rings, which was originally reported to be a prequel to the 2002 remake of The Ring but is actually a years-later sequel. On tap for you today is the latest casting news, so read on!

Best known to horror fans for her role in Scream 4, Aimee Teegarden has joined the cast of Rings, reports Deadline. The film will be set 13 years after the remake.

As previously reported, Alex Roe (The 5th Wave) has nabbed the male lead in the film, starring opposite Italian actress Matilda Lutz. He will be playing Holt, who is the boyfriend to Lutz’s character and becomes distant from her after watching the tape.

Gutierrez is directing from a script written by Akiva Goldsman, David Loucka, and Jacob Aaron Estes.

Based on a Japanese cult success, the first U.S. film went on to gross $249 million at the worldwide box office. That was enough to justify a sequel, which didn’t match the first one’s B.O. power but still grossed $160 million worldwide.

Backcountry – Important Exclusive Clip

Fri, 03/27/2015 - 10:15

Happy Friday, kids! On tap right now we have an exclusive clip from Adam MacDonald’s Backcountry (review) to go with your morning cup of joe. Knock it back and enjoy!

Reminiscent of true-life survival stories like 127 Hours and gritty animal encounter thrillers like The Grey, Backcountry follows an urban couple who embark on a camping trip in the Canadian backcountry. When they enter a predatory bear’s territory, their trip turns into an horrific tale of tragedy, will, and survival.

Synopsis:
Based on a true story, BACKCOUNTRY follows an urban couple who go camping in the Canadian wilderness – where unimaginable beauty sits alongside our most primal fears. Alex (Jeff Roop) is a seasoned outdoorsman while Jenn (Missy Peregrym), a corporate lawyer, is not. After much convincing, and against her better judgment, she agrees to let him take her deep into a Provincial Park to one of his favorite spots – the secluded Blackfoot Trail.

On their first night, deep in the forest, they have an unsettling encounter with Brad (Eric Balfour), a strange alpha male with eyes for Jenn who may or may not be following them. Alex’s desire to quickly reach Blackfoot Trail only intensifies. They push farther and farther into the woods, Alex stubbornly insisting that he remembers the way. After three days their path disappears; they are hopelessly lost. Without food or water, they struggle to find their way back, the harsh conditions bringing out the best and worst in them, pushing their already fragile relationship to the breaking point.

When they realize they have entered a bear’s territory, being lost suddenly becomes the least of their problems. Terror, horror, will, and survival become paramount.

WWE and Gene Simmons Launch Genre Label; First Film Project Announced – Temple

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 22:50

Given the showmanship of the WWE and the rock star ways of KISS’s Demon, Gene Simmons, we’ve got some news for you that’s guaranteed to bring on the chills! Read on for your first word about Erebus Pictures!

WWE Studios has announced a new partnership with media mogul Gene Simmons to launch label Erebus Pictures, which will finance and produce elevated horror movies. The new venture has locked a three-picture co-production deal starting with Temple, which was originally acquired and developed by WWE Studios.

Erebus Pictures, named after the Greek primordial deity representing the personification of darkness, will shop worldwide rights on all titles and will leverage WWE’s extensive platforms from weekly TV shows, including WWE’s flagship programs “Monday Night Raw” and “SmackDown,” digital, social media, and WWE Network to market its titles.

The horror genre continues to fascinate me as it proves to be endlessly thrilling and engaging for audiences,” said the KISS icon, who has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide after nearly 41 years in rock ‘n roll and more than 8 seasons and 167 episodes on his own reality TV show. “I am so thrilled to be working with the masterminds from WWE Studios in launching Erebus Pictures.

Horror films fall into a genre that thrives on genuine passion, and I believe this partnership truly capitalizes on that sentiment and supports our vision,” said Michael Luisi, President of WWE Studios. “I am confident that Erebus will provide audiences with an unprecedented horror experience.

Temple is written by Matt Savelloni (Exile To Babylon) and will follow a team of highly trained operatives who find themselves trapped inside an isolated military compound after its artificial intelligence is suddenly shut down. While investigating the source of the malfunction, the crew begins to experience strange and horrific phenomena as they attempt to uncover who or what killed the team previously stationed at the compound.

A director for Temple will be announced shortly with principal photography to take place this summer.

Erebus Pictures’ second feature will go into production later this year so expect lots more soon!

So How Does Terminator Genisys Relate to the Original Films? New Details!

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 19:09

We’ve all seen the trailer, and speculation has run rampant regarding just how Terminator Genisys will tie in to the other films in the franchise. Today some new clues have come.

From the SlashFilm website:

“Terminator Genisys was described as not a traditional remake or a continuation or a sequel, but more of a reimagining — kind of like JJ Abrams’ Star Trek. The film will allow moviegoers to experience the story we have already seen, but in a different way. The story features a divergent timeline that goes off [in] an entirely different direction, and taking [us] down a road we’ve never been on before. This is not a direct sequel; there is no straight line from A to B.”

Make of that what you will! In Terminator Genisys Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the T-800, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Conner, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Conner, and Matt Smith as John Conner’s ally. Byung-hun Lee, Aaron V. Williamson, Dayo Okeniyi, and J.K. Simmons also star. Alan Taylor directs.

To stay up-to-date on all things Cyberdine related, visit the official Terminator Genisys Facebook page, follow Terminator Genisys on Twitter and dig Terminator Genisys on Instagram.

Synopsis:
When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…

Surprisingly enough, Hotel Transylvania ended up being a lot of fun and was a perfect film with which to have your little ones cut their horror teeth early. Check out this new artwork for its sequel, Hotel Transylvania 2, and expect more soon!

Look for the film in theatres on September 25th from returning director Genndy Tartakovsky.

Synopsis:
Everything seems to be changing for the better at Hotel Transylvania… Dracula’s rigid monster-only hotel policy has finally relaxed, opening up its doors to human guests. But behind closed coffins, Drac is worried that his adorable half-human, half-vampire grandson, Dennis, isn’t showing signs of being a vampire. So while Mavis is busy visiting her human in-laws with Johnny – and in for a major cultural shock of her own – “Vampa” Drac enlists his friends Frank, Murray, Wayne, and Griffin to put Dennis through a “monster-in-training” boot camp. But little do they know that Drac’s grumpy and very old, old, old school dad, Vlad, is about to pay a family visit to the hotel. And when Vlad finds out that his great-grandson is not a pure blood – and humans are now welcome at Hotel Transylvania – things are going to get batty!

Great Horror Campout Announces The Exorcist Movie Night on April 17th

Thu, 03/26/2015 - 17:04

Los Angeles area fans of The Exorcist have a real treat heading their way in April as Ten Thirty One Productions has announced a second special movie night on the 17th after its inaugural event (a Friday the 13th screening on March 13th) SOLD OUT in just six days. Read on for the details!

From the Press Release:
The creators of the Great Horror Campout announced today a second outdoor movie night for their fans with a screening of The Exorcist on April 17th in Griffith Park. None other than the Great Horror Campout’s Camp Headmaster will host the upcoming event.

The Great Horror Campout, which debuted in 2013 as a 12-hour overnight immersive horror camping adventure, is bringing interactive filmmaking to its fans for a second time in 2015. The first Friday the 13th screening was widely received at their first Griffith Park movie night, selling out in 6 days.

“Horror isn’t a seasonal experience,” said Melissa Carbone, CEO of Ten Thirty One Productions. “We want to pull people’s brains out of that seasonal cage because there is nothing more exhilarating than the adrenaline rush that comes from this genre. Let’s feel that all year round, and let’s take the action off the screens and bring it into people’s personal space a little more than an average movie. Nobody can do that better than the Great Horror Campout’s Camp Headmaster.”

Moviegoers can expect pre-movie festivities, prizes, character interaction, and much more. Guests are encouraged to pack picnic baskets and blankets and to come early to get into the spirit of being scared. Additionally, Hellmasters (the elite campers who have won the coveted title at a past Great Horror Campout) will receive a special “Buy One Get One” discount and also receive reserved seating when they arrive on-site wearing their Hellmaster Sash. Tickets are on sale for $15 per person.

Ten Thirty One’s Great Horror Campout is due to return to Los Angeles on June 5-6, 2015. The company is offering a $10 ticket discount to the upcoming production if you purchase your GHC ticket on or before April 17th using the PROMO CODE: Exorcist. Get tickets now at www.greathorrorcampout.com.

Please note: We are expecting to sell out very quickly so advance ticket purchase is highly recommended. Seating is general admission and first-come/first-served. Blankets or low ground chairs are suggested as a courtesy to other guests. Masks, face paint, and prop weapons are prohibited for all guests safety. Film and pre-show content may not be suitable for all ages.
