    Don’t worry about tracking, check out new “PACIFIC RIM” poster and clips instead

    We’re just under two weeks out from a brand new Guillermo del Toro film, and it’s a massive one at that. The powers that be have seemingly understood his immense talent and provided a real expensive playground in which to set his monsters vs. mechs opus. In the last week, however, despite a flurry of positive word and no-brainer excitement, the trade Variety reported the film wasn’t tracking so hot, meaning general audiences weren’t anticipating the movie with much fervor. Does that matter? Legendary Pictures’ Thomas Tull doesn’t seem to think so, and in fact, he’s wondering why we’d care.

    Trailer: “RIGOR MORTIS” looks a bloody beautiful vampire film from Hong Kong

    RIGOR MORTIS, the directorial debut of Juno Mak, who previously starred in and wrote the harrowing REVENGE: A LOVE STORY, is taking a crack at resurrecting the Jiangshi, or hopping vampire. Popularized in 80s Hong Kong cinema like ENCOUNTERS OF THE SPOOKY KIND and MR. VAMPIRE, the creature of Chinese legend has often been cinematically a device of comedy. Mak, however, looks to be pushing something stark and stunning.

    Blu-ray Review: “STOKER”, A Fantastic Coming-of-Age Film

    A special breed, the best coming-of-age films are awash in cinematic power that evoke visceral remembrance of adolescence and a time when every emotion was true elation, the most fluttering of butterflies or absolutely gut-wrenching. It’s in adolescence when everything feels a matter of life and death, making this extremity of feeling ripe for exploration through genre. In that sense, and in many others, Park Chan-wook’s first English language feature STOKER is perfect. It’s lead, the young India (Mia Wasikowska) on the cusp of womanhood, navigating a journey of heightened senses, family mystery and eventual murder, is a warped, lurid portrait of coming-of-age. She faces loss, of both a loved one and an idol, and gains herself in the process. In the end, India boasts a sense of self, is assured of her body and is equipped with a thrilling drive.

    A “THE CABIN IN THE WOODS” maze will be at Halloween Horror Nights Orlando!

    If ever a film warranted a maze at the annual, highly praised haunts that take place at Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Hollywood, THE CABIN IN THE WOODS just might be it.

    Drew Goddard and Josss Whedon’s brilliant tribute to horror stories and why we tell them begins simply enough, with five friends taking a weekend jaunt at the titular locale. As you should know by now however, nothing is as it seems and The Cabin is part of a multi-level structure that houses every nightmare imaginable. The possibilities are endless and it seems the folks behind Halloween Horror Nights Orlando have recognized as such.

    Speaking to Zap2It, director Drew Goddard revealed he is heavily involved the crafting of the very special maze. He explains, “We are building the cabin completely. You’re going to walk through a forest to get there. You’re going into the cabin. You’re going to go into the cube cells. We’re literally taking everything we can in the film and giving you a kind of best-of montage of the film with this kind of linking story. You’re going to be in the control room when merman attacks.”

    The little narrative of the walkthrough will find you as a new member of the facility that controls the cabin, places bets on the victims and ultimately serves a higher, darker power. An introduction will explain the film’s mythology and purpose of the sacrifices, and then you’ll experience the events of the film from a different perspective.

    Experiencing the events, of course, means as many monsters as possible including original creatures from Halloween Horror Nights past. “In the maze, we’ve got many that were in the forefront of a lot of the scenes — the ballerina, the Sugarplum Fairy, the Hell Lord — but also too there are a couple rooms where we’re kind of featuring some of the creatures that were just on the screens in the control room of movie,” says Orlando’s Michael Aiello. “And then in the finale we’ve got a couple characters that could open up from Halloweens past, our own events, because we were granted amazing permission to be able to include some of our lineage into ‘Cabin’s’ lineage.”

    Goddard adds, “Our finale for the maze is something that we want guests to be surrounded by. There are so many amazing characters in the movie, we really wanted to end it with trying to surround the guests with as many guests as possible.”
