Up next, the company sets their sights on the 1973 haunted house classic The Legend of Hell House, birthing it onto Blu-ray for the very first time. Read on!

    A band of rogue H-vamps crashes the vampire-human mixer at Bellefleur’s, with shocking results.

Spurned by Lafayette (Nelsan Ellis), a desperate Lettie Mae (Adina Porter) turns to Willa (Amelia Rose Blaire) to channel her family past. Vince whips his fellow vigilantes into a dangerous frenzy.

    Independence Day 2 Getting a Script Rewrite

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 15:02

    We recently learned that Will Smith has officially declined involvement in Independence Day 2, which has naturally left 20th Century Fox scrambling for a way to make the decades-later sequel work without him. And it seems they may have finally found that way, in the form of a new writer. Read on for the latest!

    Variety reports that Fox has brought Carter Blanchard on board to re-write the first draft of the script, penned by James Vanderbilt. Blanchard previously wrote a couple episodes of the TV series "Good vs. Evil," and is currently working on Oculus director Mike Flanagan's thriller Diver.

    No plot details have been revealed for the sequel, tentatively titled ID Forever: Part 1.

    Roland Emmerich is still attached to direct with Dean Devlin set to produce. Emmerich will also produce along with Harald Kloser.

    The 1996 blockbuster Independence Day hit theaters on July 3, 1996, and went on to gross a still-impressive $817 million worldwide.

    Look for the new flick in theatres on July 1, 2016 — or almost exactly 20 years after the original hit the big screen.

    New Video Takes You Behind the Scenes of John Schneider's Smothered

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 14:50

    Described as the horror version of The Expendables, "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider's Smothered is noteworthy for boasting the largest number of horror icons ever to grace the screen at the same time, which is a claim that certainly grabs hold of our attention.

    Want a sneak peek? Ask and you shall receive!

    Fairlight Films has just dropped a new promo video in our inbox, which peels back the curtain and invites you to be a fly on the wall of the film's set, and hang out with the likes of Kane Hodder and Bill Moseley. Sounds like fun, right? Check out the behind the scenes video below!

    From the Press Release
    Smothered, written and directed by Hollywood legend John Schneider (Smallville, Nip/Tuck), sees horror icons Kane Hodder (Freddy vs. Jason, Jason X), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera), Don Shanks (Halloween 5, I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer), and R.A Mihailoff (Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Pumpkinhead 2), playing themselves in a scenario that sees them attending a small, disheartening horror-convention on Friday the 13th. Running out of patience but principally money, the group accept a cash-offer to go and scare-up the local RV park – but things take a surprising, dark turn when they arrive. The tables are turned as the monsters of the movie screen become the prey!

    Early reviews have compared the film - which had it's official premiere in New Orleans in mid-May - to the hit comedy This is the End, which featured actors Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride and Jay Baruchel as themselves, in a scenario that infused humour with horror. Critics are calling Smothered “a horror-comedy with some bite” (Shock Til You Drop) and ” A must see cinematic event” (Examiner).

    Smothered, filmed in Louisiana, also features Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), Brea Grant (Halloween II), John Kassir (‘The Crypt Keeper’), Dane Rhodes (True Detective), Shanna Forrestall (The Last Exorcism), John Schneider (Smallville), Adria Tennor (Mad Men), Andrew Bowen (Magic City), and Amy Brassette (Pawn Shop Chronicles).

    Found Footage 3D Starts Filming; Cast Fills Out

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 14:42

    The last time we told you about a film called Found Footage 3D, which is being produced by Texas Chain Saw Massacre co-creator Kim Henkel, was a couple of weeks ago and in that release the first casting news was announced along with a proposed start time.

    Right now we can confirm the flick began shooting this past Sunday and one trip to IMDB (which can be iffy to say the least) gave us the skinny on who else will be in the film. Joining the previously announced Jessica Perrin are Carter Roy, Alena von Stroheim, Chris O’Brien, Tom Saporito, Scott Allen Perry, and outspoken film critic Scott Weinberg.

    Found Footage 3D tells the story of a group of filmmakers who set out to make the first 3D found footage horror movie, and find themselves in a 3D found footage horror movie when the evil entity from their film starts showing up in their behind-the-scenes footage.

    MPAA Put Kibosh on New Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Character Poster

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 14:15

    Nipples. We all have them. We all know what they look like. We'll never understand why these two little portions of our anatomy can cause such an uproar. Apparently this new Sin City: A Dame to Kill For poster featuring some harmless side-boob from Eva Green was too much for the MPAA.

    The poster was disapproved by the MPAA “for nudity — curve of under breast and dark nipple/areola circle visible through sheer gown.

    Please... lord... give us a friggin' break already!

    Following the groundbreaking film that grossed $160 million worldwide, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For reunites Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller for the next chapter in this trailblazing series.

    Weaving together stunning visuals with an uncompromising, hard-boiled plot, the film promises more lurid tales from the various residents of Basin City. With a star-studded cast that includes the legendary Bruce Willis (Pulp Fiction), Academy Award nominee Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), Academy Award nominee Josh Brolin (Milk), Jessica Alba (Spy Kids 4), and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), Sin City: A Dame to Kill For ensures an experience like no other!

    Related News: More Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Golden Eye Candy

    The film will be released by Dimension Films in the US and Canada on August 22, 2014.

    Synopsis
    Co-directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller reunite to bring Miller's visually stunning Sin City graphic novels back to the screen in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR. Weaving together two of Miller's classic stories with new tales, the town's most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with some of its more reviled inhabitants. SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR is the follow-up to Rodriguez and Miller's 2005 groundbreaking film FRANK MILLER'S SIN CITY.

    Exclusive Raze Gag Reel Will Break Your Funny Bones

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 12:00

    There's no doubt, while the fists were flying in Raze (review), available now on DVD courtesy of IFC Films, some funny hijinx had to ensue. Don't believe us? We've got the exclusive video proof!

    From the Press Release
    At the unforgiving intersection of Chained Heat, TV's "Spartacus," and "Orange Is the New Black," stands RAZE, a viscerally thrilling new action-horror film where it's every woman for herself.

    The brutal shocker, director Josh C. Waller's "self-assured debut" (Los Angeles Times), comes to DVD from IFC Films and MPI Media Group on May 20, 2014, with an SRP of $24.98.

    After she is drugged and abducted, Jamie (Rachel Nichols; Star Trek, "Continuum") awakens to find herself in a concrete bunker, where she meets fellow abductee Sabrina (stuntwoman-turned-action star Zoe Bell; Death Proof, Kill Bill, Oblivion). Before long the two women discover that they are in a modern-day coliseum, where they and 48 other women have been selected to fight to the death. If they refuse, their loved ones will be killed.

    Co-starring genre favorites Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy) and Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks") as the sadistic organizers of the battles, RAZE is director Josh C. Waller's (McCanick) no-holds-barred assault on the senses, featuring some of the most brutal fist-to-the-face combat ever put on film. In this contest, may the best woman win.

    Extensive bonus features on the DVD include filmmaker commentary, cast and crew interviews, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, extended fight scenes, gag reel, and more.

    Neil Genzlinger of The New York Times said, "There is food for thought here about the subjugation and exploitation of women, the limits of psychological and physical endurance, and more." "As violent as it is, RAZE is refreshing," wrote Shannon M. Houston of Paste magazine. Brian Orndorf of Blu-ray.com called the film "strong stuff, but also briskly paced and interested in the psychological ramifications of such unrelenting brutality." Matt Zoller Seitz of RogerEbert.com praised, "If RAZE had been released in 1975, Quentin Tarantino would never shut up about it."

    For more check out the official Raze website, and "like" Raze on Facebook.

    Zombieworld Deadline Moved Back! SUBMIT WHILE YOU CAN!

    Thu, 05/29/2014 - 11:30

    We told you about a month ago that Dread Central teamed with Jesse Baget's Ruthless Pictures for the anthology Zombieworld, comprised of short films made by YOU, the readers and fans. The response has been tremendous and it will only get better!

    We've gotten several dozen e-mails asking us for just a bit more time to polish your projects and so... we're now giving you that opportunity! The NEW deadline to submit your film will be June 20th. That's three more weeks so get moving, kids!

    From the Press Release
    Image Entertainment, an RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) brand, has acquired Ruthless Pictures' no-holds-barred zombie fest ZOMBIEWORLD, in association with DreadCentral.com. Image Entertainment’s Vice President of Acquisition Mark Ward made the announcement today.

    “We’re eager to distribute this project because it embodies what independent filmmaking is all about: passion and creativity,” said Ward. “We’re always looking for new talent, and ZOMBIEWORLD takes storytelling to a new level that horror fans will not only enjoy but also surely rally around and support.”

    ZOMBIEWORLD is a horror anthology focusing on survivors across the world as they struggle to overcome horrifying circumstances when a pandemic brings forth a zombie apocalypse. The collection of blood, guts, and mayhem will be brought to life by a group of new and up-and-coming directors from around the world that Ruthless Pictures and Dread Central will handpick from short film entries received between April 21 and June 20, 2014, on Dread Central.com. The work of each chosen director will be featured in the film and will bring his or her take to a world now populated with flesh-eating corpses. Among the brilliant shorts to be included in ZOMBIEWORLD is Peter Horn and Jared Marshall’s "Dark Times," a blood-splattered scamper through the woods shot entirely in POV, where zombies, aliens, and even Santa Claus make an appearance.

    “As a fan of the zombie genre, I’m thrilled to be part of this film,” said Ruthless Pictures producer Jesse Baget. “ZOMBIEWORLD will showcase the unique visions of young talented filmmakers and inject fresh new blood into the genre.”

    “Jesse Baget and Ruthless Pictures burst onto the scene, opening big doors for young filmmakers,” said Dread Central’s Steve Barton. “Dread Central has always been an incredibly indie-friendly site among the major genre outlets, and we’re excited to help give up-and-coming filmmakers a platform to get noticed. Image Entertainment is a go-to source for quality horror entertainment, and with Image ZOMBIEWORLD will have the opportunity to be shown worldwide.”

    The deal was negotiated by Image Entertainment’s Jess De Leo and Grace Feeney and Jesse Baget on behalf of the filmmakers.

    "Salem" Episode 1.07 - "Our Own Private America" (airs 6/1/14)
    When a shakeup within the coven leaves Mary with more power than ever, she hatches her most nefarious plan yet to bring the witches closer to achieving the Grand Rite. Alden and Cotton, reeling from the aftermath of their interrogation, question the efficacy of the trials while Cotton is left to wonder if his life's work has amounted to anything.

    Alden finds himself weaker by the day – a victim of a dream spell that Mary uses to search Alden’s subconscious to locate the Malum – and work out her sexual frustration in the process. Meanwhile, with Mary’s attentions increasingly focused on her old flame Alden and her new pupil Mercy, tension escalates between Mary and Tituba.

    Elsewhere, Anne makes an eerie discovery about her father's activities. When Cotton’s father, Increase Mather, makes an unanticipated entrance, Salem and its coven faces the arrival of the most feared witch hunter. Written by Adam Simon and Brannon Braga; directed by David Von Ancken.
