Suspense, thrills, and screams take flight in the cult classic The Horror at 37,000 Feet, starring TV icons William Shatner ("Star Trek: The Original Series"), Buddy Ebsen ("The Beverly Hillbillies"), and Chuck Connors ("The Rifleman").
The supernatural horror film centers on a hapless ensemble of airline passengers who are plagued by a mysterious force from within the cargo hold. It’s up to an ex-priest (Shatner) to confront this mystery and drive out the demonic forces hell-bent on terrorizing anything in sight.

The film is written and directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2) and produced by James Gay-Rees (Senna, Exit Through the Gift Shop), Exclusive Media’s Tobin Armbrust, and Simon Oakes along with Steven Chester Prince and Ben Holden in association with The Traveling Picture Show Company (TPSC).

Starring Jared Harris ("Mad Men", The Ward) and Sam Claflin (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and directed by John Pogue, The Quiet Ones (inspired by true events) tells the story of an unorthodox professor who uses controversial methods and leads his best students off the grid to take part in a dangerous experiment: to create a poltergeist. Based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy, the rogue scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, pushing her to the edge of sanity. As frightening occurrences begin to take place with shocking and gruesome consequences, the group quickly realizes they have triggered a force more terrifying than they ever could have imagined.

We have a couple of updates for NBC's "Grimm" that should help fill the void until the Olympics are over and the show returns, including word on a new guest star and the upcoming digital series "Love Is in the Air."
Per TV Guide, C. Thomas Howell (pictured; "Southland," "Criminal Minds") will play FBI agent Weston Steward in Episode 3.18. Because of his experience and capability, Prince Vikton (Alexis Denisof) views Weston as an invaluable resource when Stateside issues need to be handled swiftly and precisely.

When it comes to viewing 3D images in movies, TV shows, etc., our choices are limited. We're either wearing paper glasses with colored lenses or bulky glasses that we sometimes have to change the battery in, or we're going to the theatre and watching as our wallets are violated. There just may be an alternative!
Over on Wiki Tree a story has been published which shows off a viable alternative that may be simpler than you think. As simple as adding lines to a moving image.
Is it perfect? No. But it's certainly a step in the right direction for those of you who want the thrills without the frills.

The official US trailer has checked in for Under the Skin, the sci-fi thriller that stars Scarlett Johansson as an alien seductress. Honestly, do you need anything else to sell you on this one? Please, Scarlett, probe us. Thanks, we'll wait!
In the film, written by Walter Campbell and directed by Jonathan Glazer, Johansson's character scours remote highways and back roads in Scotland for human prey.
Under the Skin arrives March 14th in the UK, April 4th in New York and Los Angeles, and April 11th everywhere else.
From visionary director Jonathan Glazer (Sexy Beast, Birth) comes a stunning career transformation, a masterpiece of existential science fiction that journeys to the heart of what it means to be human, extraterrestrial — or something in between. A voluptuous woman of unknown origin (Scarlett Johansson) combs the highways in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring this succession of lost souls into an otherworldly lair. They are seduced, stripped of their humanity, and never heard from again.
Based on the novel by Michel Faber (The Crimson Petal and the White), UNDER THE SKIN examines human experience from the perspective of an unforgettable heroine who grows too comfortable in her borrowed skin, until she is abducted into humanity with devastating results.
The much talked about NC-17 flick Lucky Bastard is gearing up for release in New York City this weekend, just in time for Valentine's Day, and we have your chance to win tickets to the flick along with a signed poster! Read on for details.
Be aware the contest is open to NEW YORK RESIDENTS ONLY. Note my usage of caps to denote just how important that is!
To enter for your chance to win, just send us an E-MAIL HERE including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. Winners will be notified FRIDAY MORNING, February 14th!
Gotham-based indie film distribution company CAVU Pictures will be releasing the NC-17 “found footage” feature film Lucky Bastard in theatres nationwide, beginning Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2014, in New York City at the Cinema Village (22 E. 2th Street, NY, NY 10003), and March 7, 2014, in Los Angeles at Laemmle’s NoHo 7 (5240 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, CA 91601). The film will expand into additional cities throughout the spring.
The director and co-writer of Lucky Bastard is veteran television writer-producer Robert Nathan, best known for his Emmy-nominated work on "Law & Order," and who is also an award-winning novelist and journalist. Executive producer and co-writer Lukas Kendall is the founder and publisher of Film Score Monthly, a magazine, website, and CD label devoted to movie music. Since 1996 he has produced and released more than 250 CDs of classic film & TV music.
LUCKY BASTARD is the story of a shy young man who wins a contest to have sex with a famous porn star on an adult website. When the young man arrives at the porno house/set location, his every move is captured on the numerous “reality television-style” wallcams that are spread out everywhere in the house. It is the found footage from these cameras that tells the story of the inevitable and horrifying reality of what actually happened.
At the center of the story are: Mike (Don McManus), who owns the “Lucky Bastard” website; his top porn star Ashley Saint (Betsy Rue); and Dave G. (Jay Paulson), the unsuspecting shy young man who wins the contest.
The “Lucky Bastard” employees treat their work matter-of-factly. Mike once clearly had more serious artistic ambitions, but now he runs the company and directs all of the “Lucky Bastard” website’s content. Ashley, the website’s most popular performer, initially refuses to participate because she knows the winner will be humiliated by the experience but ultimately gives in when offered extra money. And the contest winner, Dave, an unassuming and shy young man, finds himself driven by shame and humiliation into committing the most horrifying acts imaginable.
The cast of LUCKY BASTARD includes veteran performers known for their work in movies, TV, and theatre, including Jay Paulson (familiar to audiences as Don Draper’s brother, Adam Whitman, in "Mad Men"), Don McManus (Grand Piano, Lovelace, The Congress), and lead actress Betsy Rue (best known from the horror hit My Bloody Valentine).
LUCKY BASTARD crosses many genres—drama, comedy, suspense thriller, horror—without entirely belonging to any of them and implicitly comments on a society in which pornography is not only a common part of modern life but also a mirror reflecting the nature of intimacy in today’s world. The movie also reshapes in unpredictable ways the recent cinematic convention of “found footage.”
For more information about the opening weekend release, which includes Q&A sessions with the filmmakers, head over to the Cinema Village website.

Zak, Nick, and Aaron have cooked up a new season of spooky for the "Ghost Adventures" crew, and we have a couple of preview videos on tap to get you into the spirit of things. Dig it!
From the Press Release
Saturday nights just got a whole lot scarier! This winter, lock down with the “Ghost Adventures” trio – Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin – as they investigate intriguing new haunted locations.
Moving to a brand-new night of the week, Season 9 premieres Saturday, February 15, at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT and features thirteen hour-long episodes; new episodes continue Saturday nights thereafter. In each episode the “Ghost Adventures” team travels to a different haunted destination, where they meet with locals, eyewitnesses, and experts in an attempt to piece together the haunted history of each site. They then begin a dusk-to-dawn “lockdown” investigation, using the latest scientific gadgets and technology in an effort to obtain physical evidence of the paranormal and uncover the truth behind each haunted mystery.
“Each season we push the barriers on paranormal investigating – physically, personally, emotionally, scientifically,” said Zak Bagans, lead investigator. “Our experiences affect us well beyond what viewers see in each episode – it doesn’t just end when we turn the equipment off. But each investigation puts Nick, Aaron, and I one step closer to understanding the afterlife and the haunted mysteries of the locations we visit. It’s exciting and terrifying all at once.”
In the Season 9 premiere, Zak Bagans, Nick Groff, and Aaron Goodwin explore the Oman House – a Los Angeles home ridden with paranormal activity believed to be directly related to the infamous Sharon Tate murder by Charles Manson’s cult of followers in 1969 – which took place just 200 feet from the property. The team discovers the home also sits atop a Native American burial ground and on a geomagnetic anomaly. Reports include objects moving on their own; sightings of a pregnant, bleeding female apparition walking around outside the home thought to be Sharon Tate herself; and those who enter the house have feelings of overwhelming physical pain and illness. As the lockdown begins, a powerful, negative energy shrouds the space – along with disembodied voices and objects falling over on their own. When Groff experiences burning sensations and severe stomach pains, he’s forced to leave the home. What the team documents leaves more questions than answers.
Upcoming episodes include a special investigation of Bannack, MT – a lawless, Old West mining-turned-ghost-town with a gruesome, violent past; New York City’s Morris-Jumel Mansion, a historic haunt rich with American history and soap opera drama; Katie’s Bar in Long Island, NY – a local pub with paranormal activity that is frightening employees; the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA – a 215-year-old property that is one of America’s most famous haunted locations; a former cement factory with a dark past in Salt Lake City, UT, which now houses a Halloween fun house with real-life frights; and more.
“Ghost Adventures” is produced by My Tupelo Entertainment for Travel Channel. For My Tupelo the executive producers are Michael Yudin, Joe Townley, Zak Bagans, and Nick Groff. For Travel Channel the executive producer is Daniel A. Schwartz.

It was last May when Summit announced that Insurgent, the sequel to the upcoming Divergent, already had a writer lined up; and now word has come that along with giving the script a rewrite, the studio has found a director.
Per Deadline, Robert Schwentke, whose credits include the 2010 action comedy Red (which also came from Summit), has been tapped to helm the script currently being rewritten by Akiva Goldsman based on a draft by Brian Duffield.

Divergent, which stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, and Kate Winslet, comes out March 21, 2014, with the third film in the trilogy, Allegiant, scheduled to arrive on March 18, 2016.
Insurgent Book Synopsis
One choice can transform you—or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris' initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.
