    New poster to “CARRIE” you through the weekend

    Sure, there’s a new motion poster for Kimberly Peirce’s CARRIE redo, but more than anything, I just want to know why this Keep Calm… trend endures.

    As you probably know, the original Keep Calm and Carry On posters were one of a series of designs from the British Government’s Ministry of Information and produced by His Majesy’s Stationery Office to boost morale midst World War II. The Keep Calm design was never actually displayed for the public, but ended up rediscovered in 2000. Since, it’s become a pop culture display, utilized by almost every niche of fandom and the like, and while it hasn’t gone away, is certainly very, very tired.

    But! Carry and CARRIE are homophones, and so it’s been used in anticipation of the Chloe Moretz-starring adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel. Flashing are scenes specifically from her telekinetic prom mayhem, which if keep getting shown in trailers likely won’t have much of an effect on screen and calmness is exactly how everyone will keep.

    You can see the poster at the CARRIE tumblr.

    New York haunter Tim Haskell looks forward to this summer’s all-night “CAMP NIGHTMARE”

    It’s the beginning of Memorial Day weekend and summer, however unofficially, is here. A season with special ties to horror, it is where the youthful inclination of exploration and reckless abandon meets undeserved punishment, and when you close your eyes it’s envisioned as converging in one place: Camp. Endlessly revisited through FRIDAY THE 13TH sequels, THE BURNING and what have you, camp is a kind of mythical space whose forest getaway is recognizable to audiences and conceivably not very far from their own cabin experiences, minus the kills. Well, until now.

    Trailer: The dreadful stares of “MANIAC”

    A lot of Franck Khalfoun’s nasty, unsettling remake of William Lustig’s nasty, New York horror MANIAC is looking. Of course, much of the film you’re staring through the eyes of the maniac himself, but then there’s the stares back at him, something highlighted in the movie’s official U.S. trailer. The eyes looking back at Frank (Elijah Wood) are filled with judgment, fear, affection, enticement and it all adds greatly to a truly dreadful atmosphere.

    Full Trailer: Edgar Wright brings us “THE WORLD’S END”

    Can you, in fact, go home again? Not when alien robots have taken over. A bit snappier, some bigger action and certainly more trailer guy voiceover-ier, the U.S. preview for the upcoming Wright/Pegg/Frost joint reveals a bit more of everyone and what they’re up against.

    The third Cornetto is fast approaching. The cap to director Edgar Wright’s previous collaborations with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost finds the former playing ne’er do well Gary King, a 40-year-old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their hometown and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub – The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.

    Here, we’ve got high energy, humanoids with elongated arms, a bigger look at Rosamund Pike’s character and what looks like SIGHTSEERS’ brilliant Steve Oram.

    The highly, highly anticipated (by me, and hopefully all of you) THE WORLD’S END hits August 23. You can find the trailer at Yahoo!
