    Trailer: Is “THE PURGE” high concept home invasion?

    The latest from cinema’s low budget genre machine Blumhouse (SINISTER, INSIDIOUS) is predicated on a fascinating idea—the seeming extreme of “necessary evil” rationalization—which is one night a year in a now very peaceful America, all crime is legal. Naturally, the haven the country masquerades as erupts in violent chaos and the James DeMonaco-directed picture focuses on how one family aims to make it through the night.

    NYC! Win a pair of tickets to French terror “INSIDE” at Nitehawk this weekend

    A contemporary classic of total terror, Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s INSIDE was as ferocious a debut as you could ask for. Frightening and stunningly blood soaked all at once, it was a natural festival favorite and has become a staple for most horror fans when asked about damned good, recent genre. Oddly though, five years on from its stateside DVD debut, it hasn’t been the midnight rep go-to (or the Christmas Eve must-watch) one would expect. Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema (136 Metropolitan Ave in Williamsburg) plans to do something about that this weekend and is opening the door for La Femme in their first installment of Nitehawk Nasties.

    Video: Take your first look “UNDER THE DOME”

    This past weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, CA got the premiere footage from the upcoming CBS Stephen King-based miniseries UNDER THE DOME. Naturally, it’s found its way online and serves as both trailer and behind-the-scenes featurette with comments from King, the cast and VFX supervisor Stephen Fleet, touting the show’s practical work.

    Video: “HEMLOCK GROVE” gives us a werewolf transformation to be excited about

    Produced and shepherded by Eli Roth (who also directed the pilot), HEMLOCK GROVE sees a small Pennsylvania steel town thrown into disarray from a murder whose culprit seems less than human. As the trailers have noted, this all comes with a somewhat warped sensibility that sees soapy trysts, class warfare and werewolves along the way. The latter is the focus here today, as WonderCon (and now you) got an exclusive look at the upcoming series’ painful, skin-peeling transformation.

    Shots of Jaeger: Meet the latest “PACIFIC RIM” mechs

    In gearing up for a July release and this weekend’s WonderCon in Anaheim, Guillermo del Toro’s latest has a very active social media campaign. This week, the official Facebook has been introducing would-be fans and those who’re very much anticipating the monsters vs. mechs opus to Earth’s last saviors, the Jaegers. Up for a good look is America’s Gipsy Danger (who we’ve only seen in blueprint form), Australia’s Striker Eureka, China’s Crimson Typhoon and Russia’s Cherno Alpha, who looks crushing.

    From writer Travis Beacham and the no-intro-necessary del Toro, PACIFIC RIM is the story of kaiju risen from the sea and the team of tough ass jaegers man has assembled to take them down. The movie is out July 12th in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D, all of which I plan to attend at some point.
