  • Today in Alex Aja: New “HORNS” Trailer & “THE 9TH LIFE OF LOUIS DRAX”

    Aside from its being based on a stellar novel from Joe Hill, part of the excitement surrounding HORNS is what feels like a comeback from Alexandre Aja. Though PIRANHA 3D was unrepentant fun, the talent, style and flare revealed in grimmer fare like HIGH TENSION and THE HILLS HAVE EYES seems to have been rejuvenated. Just the opening images of this latest trailer for the Daniel Radcliffe-starrer embraces the book’s dark fantasy leanings and hopefully sets the stage for a surprising, strange film.

Have Alexandre Aja and director Gregory Levasseur plans to change that?

  • Jorge Michel Grau and SpectreVision Embrace Classical Zombies in “CURSE THE DARKNESS”

    What’s fascinating about the zombie boom and subsequent phenomenon is the seeming reticence to embrace the creature’s pre-Romero existence and folklore. Having effectively created the flesh-eating ghoul as we know it, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD was a departure from the zombie’s Caribbean origins as a corpse revived through necromancy and often put to work. The concept of being doomed to an existence as a mindless entity meant to do the bidding of a master is still readily eerie, if not exactly based in fact.

  • Lifetime Goes to Series with Romantic, Dark “DAMIEN”

    We are so fascinated with the adolescences and young adulthood of our iconic killers. As more narratives demand and present the origins of heroes, villains and everything in between, television adaptations use such as the basis for prequels, sequels and new iterations of classic characters. Similar to BATES MOTEL and the currently developing LEATHERFACE, Lifetime aims to explore the life of Damien Thorn, struggling with his role as Antichrist in a THE OMEN-based series set to premiere in 2015.
