  • Single White College Student: The trailer for “THE ROOMMATE”

    Originally posted on 2010-09-17 17:43:23 by Samuel Zimmerman

    The trailer for the new psychological thriller, THE ROOMMATE has debuted online and with prints of DEVIL in theaters this weekend. Hit the jump to check out a psychotic Leighton Meester and what promises to be my favorite guilty pleasure of next year. 

    Yahoo! premiered the clip. The film stars GOSSIP GIRL’s Meester, Minka Kelly and the actor I currently hate the most, TWILIGHT’s Cam Gigandet and revolves around “a deranged college freshman (Leighton Meester) who becomes obsessed with her new roommate (Minka Kelly).”

    Also, apparently Billy Zane is in this too. I’m so excited. THE ROOMMATE hits February 4, 2011.

  • Anchor Bay finds “A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE”

    Originally posted on 2010-09-17 17:20:54 by Samuel Zimmerman

    More distribution news is coming out of the Toronto International Film Festival today and it involves the acquisition of the new AJ Bowen starring thriller, A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE. Hit the jump for more!

    Deadline reports that Anchor Bay has nabbed the film for English-speaking territories and says “a theatrical component is part of the mix.” Unfortunately, sometimes that doesn’t mean a whole lot coming from Anchor Bay. Word on the film is strong nonetheless so hopefully it gets its due. Here’s the synopsis and trailer:

    “Sarah is starting life over. After her last relationship ended with a revelation that sent her boyfriend, Garrick, to a life sentence in prison, Sarah had no choice but to leave her past behind. Now that she’s been relocated to a small town and given a new identity, Sarah’s embracing the opportunity to start life fresh. Unfortunately for Sarah, the past won’t let go.

    Garrick escapes prison and discovers Sarah’s new location, then blazes a violent trail across the country to track her down and disrupt her seemingly perfect new life.

    Award-winning director Adam Wingard plays with narrative chronology, sound design and visual aesthetics to slowly unveil the details of Sarah and Garrick’s dark past. Meanwhile, Garrick grows ever closer in his search, leading to a violent confrontation in which the true motivation for his obsessive manhunt is finally revealed.”

  • Guillermo del Toro talks video games, “HAUNTED MANSION” & “MADNESS”

    Originally posted on 2010-09-17 16:42:36 by Allan Dart

    The James Brown of directors speaks up about some of the many, many, many projects he has in development. Check out the Hardest Working Man in Hollywood’s comments after the jump.

    For the full video interview, you can go to Collider, but here are some of the conversation’s highlights.

     

    * Video Games: del Toro has a video game deal that’s not yet announced. It will be three games to be made over 10 years with the goal of a new game every three years.

    * HAUNTED MANSION: The film will be PG-13 and it will be a “dark ride.” A storyline was turned in last week to Disney along with the first few key concept drawings. MIMIC’s Matthew Robbins is writing, and he’ll start in about a month. Del Toro hopes to know if Disney will move forward on it in January. At that time he’ll figure out if he or someone else will direct it.

    * AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS: STAR WARS’ Dennis Muren is designing the monsters, and he told del Toro: “You’ve never seen monsters like this.” Del Toro plans on talking to some H.P. Lovecraft scholars to get their input on the script. However, despite the involvement of James Cameron, the film isn’t greenlit yet, and del Toro realizes that the project has two big issues: It’s a hardcore R-rated movie, and it’s a horror tentpole with a big budget.

    Stay tuned for more del Toro news on this site shortly, including a schedule of his book tour in support of THE FALL, Volume II of his THE STRAIN trilogy.

  • Wolves are on the prowl in two new Syfy flicks

    Originally posted on 2010-09-17 15:50:44 by Allan Dart

    Sharktopus, Schmarktopus! You want some REAL badass monstrosities? Well, you’ll have a howling good time in October watching this pair of Saturday Original Movies.

    First up is MONSTERWOLF, premiering Saturday, October 9, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). When an oil company defies a court injunction against drilling on tribal land, their blasting releases the Kachinawaya, a Native American animal spirit meant to protect Indian lands from invaders. MONSTERWOLF stars, appropriately, THE HOWLING’s Robert Picardo and KILLER MOVIE’s Jason London.

    And in RED: WEREWOLF HUNTER, debuting Saturday, October 30, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT), BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Felicia Day portrays a descendant of Little Red Riding Hood, who brings her fiancé home, where he learns the family business: hunting werewolves. He’s skeptical—at least until he’s bitten by a werewolf. When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries everything she can to save him. RED: WEREWOLF HUNTER also stars STAREGATE: ATLANTIS’ Kavan Smith and PONTYPOOL’s Stephen McHattie.

  • Exclusive gory “NIGHT OF THE DEMONS” clip & screening reminder

    Originally posted on 2010-09-17 13:49:14 by FANGORIA Staff

    There are demons in da house, and FANGORIA has nabbed an exclusive clip from the upcoming Entertainment One remake of NIGHT OF THE DEMONS. Go below the jump to see what happens when bad boy Edward Furlong tries to clean up his act—and encounters a literal bloodbath!

    Now that we whet your appetite, let us remind you that FANGORIA will host a free screening of director Adam Gierasch’s NIGHT OF THE DEMONS redux at the Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University Place) on Friday, October 15 at 11:30 p.m. Gierasch co-wrote the new film with longtime partner Jace Anderson, the two having previously collaborated on AUTOPSY, TOOLBOX MURDERS, MOTHER OF TEARS, MORTUARY and the upcoming FERTILE GROUND. You can see the gruesome trailer for NIGHT OF THE DEMONS below. The updated DEMONS, due out on DVD October 26 from Entertainment One, follows a bunch of young party animals who spend Halloween night in a haunted mansion, turning into demons and mutilating themselves and their friends. The film boasts a hot cast led by 13 GHOSTS’ Shannon Elizabeth as the new Angela (that infernal troublemaker), with stunners like LAID TO REST’s Bobbi Sue Luther, FREDDY VS. JASON’s Monica Keena, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING’s Diora Baird and THE HAZING’s Tiffany Shepis playing the wild girls who turn into wilder she-demons. TRAILER PARK OF TERROR’s Drac Studios provided the film’s eye-popping makeup FX and monsters. The original film’s Linnea Quigley has a cameo as well.

    The Fango NIGHT OF THE DEMONS screening will be a free show; to obtain tickets, send an email to fangoscreening@starloggroup.com. You must list “DEMONS” as your subject line. Offer is good for you and one guest. Plus tell us your full name and whether you want to be added to the FANGORIA newsletter list so we can inform you about future Fango screenings and events. Names will be checked at the door. Offer is first come, first served, and we will confirm your rsvp. Seating is not guaranteed, however. This advance preview is sponsored by Entertainment One.

    Gareth Jones of Dread Central called NIGHT OF THE DEMONS “a modern throwback to a simpler era of horror where boobs and blood were the main attraction,” while Steven West of The Horror Review said: “If you see only one movie this year featuring demonic anal sex…make it this one.” And Suspiriorum at Horrorview.com summed up NIGHT OF THE DEMONS as a “shamelessly trashy experience, but one which is solidly entertaining, and a rare remake which doesn’t shame the memory of its progenitor.”

    Check out FANGORIA #291 for exclusive NIGHT OF THE DEMONS photos and interviews. And watch this space for upcoming Fango screenings. See you at the show!

What were they expecting? What would you expect from a movie called SHARKTOPUS?!

  • Pedro Almodóvar chiller gets U.S. distribution

    Originally posted on 2010-09-16 19:42:20 by

    There’s been a flurry of buying activity in the horror world taking place around the Toronto Film Festival this week, and now an international genre piece that’s still currently shooting has been picked up for North American release: LA PIEL QUE HABITO (THE SKIN I LIVE IN) by top Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar (pictured).

    Deadline first reported that Sony Pictures Classics acquired those distribution rights—marking the 10th time the company has handled an Almodóvar film. LA PIEL, which we previously reported on here, is a Gothic psychological chiller starring Antonio Banderas as a plastic surgeon who avenges his daughter’s rape in horrific fashion, and also stars FRAGILE’s Elena Anaya and THE DEVIL’S BACKBONE’s Marisa Paredes. It’s loosely based on Thierry Jonquet’s novel MYGALE and is currently shooting in Spain.
