    Caesar on the Attack in Official “DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES” Teaser

    If anything has changed from the teaser unveiled at this past summer’s San Diego Comic-Con and the official DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES teaser released today, it’s either none too drastic, or I just can’t spot it. It’s the still a rousing, misty  bit of anticipation that points toward the resurrection of this series being an exciting, successful one.

    “PENNY DREADFUL” Tease: Eva Green and the Demons Within

    PENNY DREADFUL is an upcoming horror series from Showtime that takes its name from the thrilling, pulpy serials and Gothic novels of 1800s England. Thus, such is the setting for the show which aims to weave together classic macabre characters like Dorian Gray, Dr. Frankenstein and more, into one horror stew. Set to premiere this Spring 2014, the first visual teasers have debuted and the latest finds Eva Green under demonic influence, unwittingly praying to an upside down cross.

    What’s in the Chili? Submit a Family Recipe and Win “WE ARE WHAT WE ARE”!

    You may not know, but WE ARE WHAT WE ARE (one of the best horror films of the year) and its source material, Jorge Michel Grau’s film of the same name, concern cannibals. They’re not exactly raving lunatics, backwoods variety, but instead a bit more solemn; the consuming of flesh reserved for an annual holiday dinner. Speaking of, we’re in the midst of a season of annual holiday dinners, are we not? We’d like you to capitalize on that and win a Blu-ray of Jim Mickle’s excellent WE ARE WHAT WE ARE and an official apron (see below).

    “TOAD ROAD” (Movie Review)

    In TOAD ROAD, Hell is many things. One is a destination, of course. More than that however, it’s a goal. It’s also a time and a place in our lives where there’s nothing left (and nothing better) to do than self-destruct. Then, for what could be one of the most tragic characters in contemporary horror, it’s greater than just something fiery and frightening. It’s transcendental, a higher plane. And in TOAD ROAD, all of these possibilities converge, as do documentary and fiction, as do folklore and bored suburban youth, as do the misguided Sara, her poetic quest for otherworldliness, her shitty friends and all of the psychedelics they ingest.  It ends sunken and haunting, a unique and uniquely affecting modern tale of terror.

    Trailer: Elijah Wood’s Hitchcockian Dazzler, “GRAND PIANO”

    An endlessly thrilling exercise in classic suspense and wonderful style, Eugenio Mira’s GRAND PIANO has debuted its official trailer for the upcoming U.S. release. It’s a neat set up, laying the conceit of the film before us and then proceeding to unload a deluge of the film’s elating visual flair. It’s a good taste of an audience experience that’s very exciting, indeed.

    The Year in Horror, 2013: Chris Alexander’s Top Films

    One of the pleasures of loving horror cinema is defining exactly what a horror movie is. Let’s face it, many of our most beloved morbid masterpieces were not considered horror films by their helmers, the very word “horror” deemed to be a grotty ghetto bottom feeder genre by many. To me, horror is that swelling feeling of dread and terror. It’s the sadness of death, the misery of shocking violent death, the anxiety about the “other”—whether an external, or internal, threat—and often, just the sheer phantasmagorical punch of seeing things that do not, and cannot exist, in the natural world suddenly run rampant before our eyes.

    Trailer: “HAUNT” Links Sexual Awakening with Paranormal Activity

    Are first brushes with sex otherwordly? Could it open a door similar to say, a haunted antique? In HAUNT, it looks as if teenagers in love are taking bold steps, both with each other and a mysterious box found in an attic. And while the former may be the natural course of things in young lives, the trailer and synopsis of the film find the bedroom activity and the paranormal inextricably linked. Soon, super low voices emanate from it, Jacki Weaver as “the cautious old lady” yells in hysterics and people are thrown across rooms. Modern paranormal horror ahoy.
