5.23 Update For 'FRIDAY THE 13th' Reboot:




It appears Paramount Pictures upcoming relaunch of 'Friday The 13th', will not be a sequel to 2009's remake.. Screenwriter Nick Antosca took to twitter yesterday and twitted:

5.23 Full Trailer For Eli Roth's 'Knock Knock':




The full trailer for Eli Roth's upcoming horror flick 'Knock Knock', has made it's way online... The film Stars: Keanu Reeves, Lorenza Izzo, Ignacia Allamand, Aaron Burns, Colleen Camp and Ana de Armas...

Story: Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Of course he did. Things are going so well, Evan doesn’t even mind spending Father’s Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend.

And then there’s a knock on the door. The two young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) standing on Evan’s doorstep are where Evan’s dream takes a nightmarish turn. Given co-writer/director Eli Roth’s well-deserved reputation for creating cinematic discomfort, it should come as no surprise what happens next: Things get weird, and then dark, and then much, much, much darker. But this is no splatter film, so Roth keeps the horror nice and psychological as Evan’s life—and house—get ripped apart, piece by beautiful piece.

Written By: Eli Roth, Nicolás López and Guillermo Amoedo - Directed By: Eli Roth... The film is being produced by Roth along with veteran actress Colleen Camp...

Raimi is directing the first episode of “Ash vs Evil Dead” that he wrote with Ivan Raimi (Darkman, Army of Darkness, Drag Me to Hell), Craig DiGregorio (“Workaholics,” “Chuck”) and Tom Spezialy (“Chuck,” “Reaper,” “Desperate Housewives”).

5.20 Blu-ray Release Date For 'It Follows':




Press Release: The critically acclaimed breakout movie of the year It Follows arrives on Blu-ray and DVD July 14th from Anchor Bay Entertainment, RADiUS, and DIMENSION. Dubbed “the best horror film in over a decade,” It Follows is directed by David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover) and stars Maika Monroe (upcoming Independence Day 2, The Guest), Keir Gilchrist (It’s Kind of a Funny Story, “United States of Tara”), Daniel Zovatto (Beneath, Innocence, Laggies), and Jake Weary (Altitude, Fred).

For 19-year-old Jay, fall should be about school, boys, and weekends out at the lake.

Jay and her teenage friends must now find a way to escape the horrors that seem to be only a few steps behind in this chiller that Bloody Disgusting calls “the scariest movie of 2015.”
