    Mary Harron, Jennifer Lynch and More for All Female-Directed Anthology, “XX’

    The resurgence of anthologies has undoubtedly added a great sense of fun to contemporary genre, joining  mediums and international filmmakers for all manner of macabre. It’s also highlighted what can be a boys’ club nature of horror, leaving many to find misogynistic tones and asking where the female filmmakers are? Of course, that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of horror-focused women—some of just 2013’s best genre films including VANISHING WAVES, KISS OF THE DAMNED, DARK TOUCH, AMERICAN MARY and fest film SHE WOLF were helmed by such—but the new, Dark Sky and XYZ-produced anthology XX aims to bring a host of of them together. And the lineup they’ve garnered is something to be thrilled about.

    First Look: “THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH”

    Hammer’s return has proved fruitful.

While we await their next original offering, THE QUIET ONES this spring, the storied company has begun work on a sequel to THE WOMAN IN BLACK, one that remains in Eel Marsh House, but moves the frights to WWII.

    “ROOM 237″ Director to helm Horror Doc on Sleep Paralysis

    There’s a certain, singular quality to the work of Rodney Ascher. If you’ve seen his very buzzed and entrancing ROOM 237 (the doc about SHINING theories) or the short, eerie THE S FROM HELL, you know this. The concept then, of Ascher specifically taking on a doc meant to make us as uncomfortable as horror fiction and focusing on sleep paralysis and ensuing demonic visions. Sign us up to get freaked out.

    DeMonaco returns to the world of “THE PURGE” for sequel

    THE PURGE, the very successful, high concept horror thriller was a largely contained movie. Set inside the confusing house of a security system salesman, the film distilled the kind of gonzo premise of a 12-hour all-things-go window into a home invasion/siege movie with ill-explored class issues and spooky masks. Now, a sequel is underway with writer/director James DeMonaco returning. Will he take us out into the world of the New Founders of America?

    EVIL DEAD star and noted ham Bruce Campbell, in addition to EVIL DEAD producer Rob Tapert and EVIL DEAD 2013 director Fede Alvarez, have all at some point or another this year spoken to the possible existence of ARMY OF DARKNESS 2. Whether it being currently in development, or an active focus for Sam Raimi, each has played a part in stoking the fire of an unnecessary sequel, whipping fans both adoring of and underwhelmed by the EVIL DEAD reboot, into a frenzy. But is it all a silly game? To Bruce Campbell, is everything?
