First Look at WWE Star Luke Harper in Action-Horror Film ‘Mohawk’

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 13:20

Ted Geoghegan made his directorial debut with the impressive We Are Still Here, a film that many horror fans named one of the very best of 2015. What’s next from Geoghegan? His action-horror-revenge film Mohawk is set to premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival, and the first two images have surfaced.

They come courtesy of EW, giving us our first look at actors Eamon Farren (“Twin Peaks”), Kaniehtiio Horn and Jonathan Huber (WWE’s Luke Harper).

In Mohawk, set in 1814…

After one of her tribe sets an American soldiers’ camp ablaze, a young female Mohawk finds herself pursued by a ruthless band of renegades bent on revenge. Fleeing deep into the woods, Mohawk youths Oak and Calvin confront the bloodthirsty Colonel Holt and his soldiers. As the Americans seem to close in from all sides, the trio must summon every resource both real and supernatural as the brutal attack escalates.

Mohawk reteams Geoghegan with co-screenwriter Grady Hendrix, author of “Horrorstör,” as well as producers Greg Newman and Travis Stevens.

The cast also includes Justin Rain (SyFy’s “Defiance), Noah Segan (Looper, Starry Eyes, The Mind’s Eye), Ian Colleti (AMC’s “Preacher”), Robert Longstreet, Sheri Foster, Ezra Buzzington (The Hills Have Eyes, Crossbones) and many others.

Artist’s Awesome ‘MEG’ Posters Have Made Us Even Hungrier for 2018 Film

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 12:40

This summer, we head 47 Meters Down. Next summer, we meet Meg.

One of the films we cannot wait to see next year is director Jon Turteltaub’s Meg, the long-awaited adaptation of the New York Times best-selling book by Steve Alten. Jason Statham stars in the action-horror film about a mega-sized Megalodon shark, which recently wrapped filming – Statham describes it as Jaws meets Jurassic Park!

While we wait for the trailer, we wanted to whet your appetite for the deep sea horror to come by showing off a couple pieces of fan-made Meg poster art that we are absolutely in love with. They come courtesy of artist David Graham, who whipped up two different concepts that stress the massive, prehistoric size of the titular monster.

Again, these are not in any way official, but they sure are cool!

Meg will swim into theaters on August 10, 2018.

In Meg

A deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer, against the wishes of his daughter Suyin, to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.

What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

Rounding out the international main cast of Meg are Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Robert Taylor, Sophia Shuya Cai and Masi Oka.

Turteltaub directed from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber.

[Exclusive] Dying Fetus Premiere Extremely NSFW Video for ‘Die With Integrity’

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 12:00

Now over 25 years into their distinguished career, American death-metal band DYING FETUS continues to pummel us with blast beats and crushing riffs. The band is set to release their 8th studio album “Wrong One To Fuck With” June 23rd via Relapse Records, and we have the premiere of the insanely gory and absolutely 100% NSFW video for “Die With Integrity.”

Mitch Massie who helmed the infamous Cattle Decapitation video for “Forced Gender Reassignment” (watch here) along with music videos from Whitechapel and John Frum directed the video.  Final notice, the following video is super NSFW, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Director Mitch Massie commented:

“I wanted to make a revenge tale, a western, and an 80s slasher movie, so I rolled them all up into this video. I love the idea of a guy cutting off heads and attaching them to a chain as he hunts down all the people that fucked his life up only to find out that it was a scorned madame of a brothel that instigated it all.”

Chicago! CINEPOCALYPSE is Coming to The Music Box Theatre!!

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 11:45

The iconic Music Box Theatre is filling a void here in Chicago by announcing CINEPOCALYPSE, a new film festival taking place from November 2-9.

The Midwest’s largest gathering of horror films and fans alike, organizers promise a full week of ass-kicking genre movies, special guests, and events. This year’s Cinepocalypse will feature scary-good world and regional premieres, repertory screenings, special guests, parties, and much more. A full schedule will be announced in October. To purchase early bird badges, visit https://www.musicboxtheatre.com/events/cinepocalypse. For shorts and full-length feature submissions, click here.

Josh Goldbloom, Founder & Artistic Director of The Awesome Fest and what had been known as Bruce Campbell’s Horror Film Festival, and Ryan Oestreich, General Manager of The Music Box Theatre, aim to make this year bigger, better and scarier than any in the festival’s history. Since 2014, the festival has terrorized audiences with an annual slate of premiere films, guests, and bloodcurdling entertainment. Leaving a trail of apocalyptic annihilation in the suburbs, as Cinepocalypse, the festival sheds its suburban skin, forms an epic alliance with the city’s historic Music Box Theatre and reemerges as a brand new horror behemoth for Chicago
 
The Music Box Theatre stands as one of the nation’s most prestigious art house theaters and has recently made a concerted effort to diversify programming and bolster local audiences. Located on the city’s Northside at 3733 North Southport Ave, The Music Box’s year-round programming has consistently offered genre fans some of the very finest cinematic experiences in digital, 35mm, and 70mm formats.

“We’re beyond thrilled to host this next iteration of the horror film festival,” said Oestreich. “We pride ourselves on taking risks in our programming and offering a diverse slate of films. Partnering with Josh to create Cinepocalypse makes perfect sense for us as we continue our commitment to great film in Chicago.”

In just three short years, what was previously the Bruce Campbell Horror Festival has played host to dozens of horror, thriller and genre legends, including John Carpenter, Fede Alvarez, Eli Roth, Christopher Lloyd, Fred Dekker, Tom Holland, Barbara Crampton, William Sadler, Stephen Lang, comedian Doug Benson, and many more.

“CINEPOCALYPSE will take this iconic film festival to horrific new heights,” said Goldbloom. “We plan on presenting Chicago an unrivaled offering of bloody international badassery & terror with our friends at the Music Box.”

Bring on the CINEPOCALYPSE!

New Photo from ‘Rampage’ Has an Appetite for Destruction

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 11:38

Currently filming in Atlanta is video game adaptation Rampage, a Brad Peyton-directed film that will pit Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson up against a handful of massive monsters. Most of what we know about the movie has come courtesy of Johnson himself, who just shared a really cool set photo over on Twitter.

We have a problem. The beasts survived,” @TheRock captioned the photo, which has him walking tall against a destroyed backdrop. Check it out below!

Based on the popular Midway video game, Rampage stars Johnson as Davis Okoye, a primatologist who shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent, silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster.

The cast also includes Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Malin Akerman (TV’s Billions), Jake Lacy (TV’s Girls), Joe Manganiello (TV’s True Blood), Jeffrey Dean Morgan(TV’s The Walking Dead), P.J. Byrne (Final Destination 5), Marley Shelton (Solace), Breanne Hill (San Andreas), Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), and Matt Gerald (TV’s Daredevil).

The film will Rampage into theaters on April 20, 2018.

Spinoff ‘The Crooked Man’ Officially Confirmed; Writer Comes Aboard

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 11:34

The Conjuring Universe just keeps growing and growing.

As we expected, The Conjuring 2 character The Crooked Man is soon getting his own spinoff film, as THR reports today that the movie has been officially confirmed. Mike Van Waes was brought on board to pen the script for New Line, from a story by James Wan.

Based on an English nursery rhyme, the creepy character was portrayed by Javier Botet in The Conjuring 2. No wonder on whether or not he’ll be back, but we assume he will.

Producer Peter Safran recently noted, “I think there’s something fascinating in the Crooked ManMaybe tonally he’s not as grounded as the Conjuring itself is and maybe that’s why some people felt it wasn’t what they were looking for in the Conjuring but I suspect a movie with him would be really really coolI just love what that character can be. We have some interesting ideas for him.

Both Wan and Safran are producing The Crooked Man.

Next up in The Conjuring Universe, Annabelle: Creation will hit theaters August 11, followed by The Nun on Friday, July 13, 2018.

The Recalled ‘Mummy’ POP! Vinyl Toy is Now Selling for Hundreds

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 11:17

It’s being called a “holy grail” for POP! collectors.

Back in April we told you that Funko had cancelled a planned POP! vinyl toy of Tom Cruise’s Nick Morton from The Mummy, which was to be released alongside toys of Ahmanet as both Princess and Mummy. You’ll currently find the latter two wherever POP! toys are sold, but tracking down the cancelled third toy will be a whole lot harder… and way more expensive.

Over on eBay this week, two of the cancelled toys have popped up in separate listings, and intense bidding wars have driven the prices up to (at the time of writing this article) a staggering $570 and $430, respectively. The former currently has 49 bids with just 5 hours left, while the latter has 14 bids and 2 days remaining.

The reason the toy was pulled? From what we gather, “licensing issues” were cited as the official reason, with most believing that it was Cruise himself who killed the toy. He’s known for not allowing his likeness to be used for merchandising, so it seems likely that it was he who objected to the release of the toy.

If you make bad financial decisions and need one, head over to eBay!

Fan Film ‘Sally’s Escape from Hell’ Captures Feel of Original ‘Chain Saw Massacre’

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 10:49

You won’t find a better Chain Saw fan film out there.

By far the best aspect of Texas Chainsaw 3D was that it returned to the events of Tobe Hooper’s original classic, showing us what happened right after the 1974 film came to a close. Similarly, mega fan Gus Trapani has taken the franchise back to its ’70s roots with Sally’s Escape from Hell, a new short that makes me question my stance on fan films being relatively useless.

With Sally’s Escape from Hell, which essentially reimagines Sally Hardesty’s struggle for survival in the final act of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Trapani impressively manages to capture both the manic terror and inherent goofiness that helped make Hooper’s film such a standout slice of horror cinema. The filmmaker explains his goal with the short…

This film was simply a passion project made out of the love we have for Tobe Hooper’s 1974 masterpiece, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The goal was to try and capture the raw feeling of the original film while adding a tad of our own flavor. Shot in two days with no crew.

Check out the incredible short below, which stars Jennie Yates as Sally.

Here’s Why Jean-Claude Van Damme “Quit” the Original ‘Predator’

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 09:49

This week marks the 30th anniversary of John McTiernan‘s Predator, which is praised as one of the greatest action flicks of all time. It’s easy to watch the 1987 film now and say, “Damn, this movie is fucking incredible.” But as good as Predator ended up it was a tumultuous and problematic process.

As John highlighted earlier this week, Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally cast as the film’s title character. JCVD was originally hired to play the beast in Predator; and the costume at that time, before Stan Winston took over and Van Damme was replaced by the late Kevin Peter Hall, was an absolute abomination.

While the story has been told many times before, McTiernan reiterates to CinemaBlend why Van Damme quite the film:

“We never shot anything with him. It was a complete screw up with his agent, trying to hustle him into a job and didn’t know what the movie was. It’s silly. It was really silly.“

Special effects specialist Steve Johnson explained in this 2014 interview  that the original design for the Predator was very different to the character that made it to cinemas:

“It was awful,” says Johnson, “It was ahead of its time, let’s put it that way. But the head did suck.”

In regards to Van Damme, he was allegedly displeased with his role and costume, learning that he’d be invisible through parts of the film.

“He was just off the boat from Brussels, he thought he was going to show his martial arts abilities to the world,” says Johnson. “He thought this was actually the real look of the monster in the movie and he [said] ‘I hate this. I hate this. I hate it. I look like a superhero.’ He was so angry.”

Johnson explaining that the suit was actually a cloaking device, “made him even angrier because he thought he could do his martial arts, he could fight Arnold Schwarzenegger. Impossible. Absolutely impossible.”

While this is the story that’s been shared over the years, I’ve actually heard from people close to both the Predator and Bloodsport productions that there’s more to it. The other side of the story goes like this: Jean-Claude Van Damme had found out during pre-production that his Bloodsport was financed. The Predator production refused to let him out of his contract, which then caused JCVD to sabotage his role and force them to “fire” him. This lines up a bit with the aforementioned quotes, which allege that JCVD became difficult and angry when he saw the costume design and learned of his role.

While it’s impossible to know the full story, it would be awesome to hear Van Damme’s unfiltered side of it. No matter, we all won because Van Damme’s Bloodsport is a masterpiece that helped spawn “Mortal Kombat” and other fighting games, and we were also gifted with gems such as Kickboxer, Lionheart, Universal Soldier, Timecop and, yes, Sudden Death.

[Trailer] Daniel Radcliffe Heads into ‘Wolf Creek’ Director’s ‘Jungle’

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 00:34

When fear sets in, keep hope alive.

Daniel Radcliffe joins director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek, Rogue, The Belko Experiment) in the Bolivian rainforest for tense survival thriller Jungle, based on the bestselling real-life story of adventurer Yossi Ghinsberg. Ahead of the world premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 3rd, we’ve got the intense trailer for ya tonight.

In the early 1980s, 22-year-old Israeli backpacker Yossi Ghinsberg and two friends – Swiss teacher Marcus Stamm and American photographer Kevin Gale – set off from the Bolivian city of La Paz on what was supposed to be the adventure of a lifetime. Leading the way into the uncharted Amazon was an Austrian expat named Karl Ruprechter, who had met the friends just days before and claimed to be familiar with the region.

But their dream trip soon turned into a wilderness nightmare from which not all of the men returned.

Thomas Kretschmann, Alex Russell, Joel Jackson and Yasmin Kassim also star in the film, penned by Justin Monjo and filmed in Australia.

McLean produced along with Dana Lustig, Gary Hamilton, Mike Gabrawy and Todd Fellman.
