Captivating Trailer for Evil Things

This captivating trailer for Dominic Perez’s upcoming found-footage movie, Evil Things, draws the image of an intense and bloodcurdling story, which will creep up under your skin.

Evil Things shows the nightmarish events, which preceded the disappearing of a group of friends, who had taken a trip to a remote cabin to celebrate a 21th birthday, documented by the video camera, found by the police on the site.

For this kind of movie to work, it must really make us believe that the events it’s depicting are genuine, or at least plausible – that the frightening events could actually happen to us too.

I think that this trailer depicts such a movie, which will grab you by the neck, shove your face deep into the nightmarish events, and not let go until the last thrilling frame. Have a look at the trailer yourself and give us your thoughts about whether Evil Things has what it takes to scare your socks off or not.

Check out Evil Things at Amazon. The movie will also arrive in Canada and UK on October 10, this fall. You can learn more about the movie at the Evil Things homepage.

Behind the Scenes Clip from Bereavement

On August 30, Stevan Mena’s Bereavement, the anticipated prequel to the 2005 cult hit Malevolence is released on Blu-ray and DVD, starring Michael Biehn, John Savage, Alexandra Daddario, and Brett Rickaby.

Below you have an interesting behind-the-scenes clip from the set, depicting how they made the slaughterhouse scene, in the middle of the night.

In Bereavement, Allison Miller (Alexandra Daddario) goes to the rural countryside, to live with her Uncle Jonathan (Michael Biehn). While Allison explores the surroundings, she stumbles upon a farmhouse, where things are far from all right. Before she knew it, her curiosity had stomped into a hornet’s nest of evil and despair, and there can only be two outcomes: bereavement or death!

Director Steve Mena has said the following about Bereavement, “The only way to describe it is like an epic horror story. It’s more in the vein of The Shining, whereas the original was kind of like Halloween or Friday the 13th. Bereavement is more of a character study.

Check out the clip below and share your thoughts about this prequel.

By the way, Mena’s initial cut of the film was over three hours long, and one thing that was cut from the movie was overtly gory scenes.

Eerie Stills from Joe Raffa’s Six Degrees of Hell

The production of Joe Raffa’s upcoming supernatural horror Six Degrees of Hell is currently in full swing, and a couple of movie stills, which will send icy chills down your spine, has already risen from it.

The movie revolves around six people who find themselves in the middle of a supernatural perfect storm, as an evil lays claim to one of them while threatening to tear apart the soul of a small Pennsylvania town.

Besides Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys), Tara Reid (American Pie), David J. Bonner and Nicole Cinaglia (You’ll Know my Name), director Joe Raffa also plays a role in this.

If not these eerie stills from Six Degrees of Hell have got you excited already, maybe the fact that some scenes will be filmed at an actual haunted attraction in Saylorsburgh, Pennsylvania, will?

Well, I truly look forward to the see the result as the movie will creep up on us sometime next year, or how about you?

Also, be sure to check out more stills and info about the movie at its Facebook page over here.

The Hunger Games Already Got a Sequel

The Hunger Games Poster

While Director Gary Ross is busy filming The Hunger Games, the first adaptation of Suzanne Collins trilogy, Lionsgate already announces that they will make a sequel and that it will land in the theaters on Thanksgiving weekend, November 22, 2013.

Joe Drake, Lionsgate COO, said in a statement that they believe the story in The Hunger Games truly offers something for everyone. He also said that the period around Thanksgiving weekend is such an opportunity for families and friends to make an event of going to the movies.

I like this fierce move by Lionsgate. It’s clear that they think very high about the first Hunger Games movie, and that they’re confidence it’ll rock the Box Office in March 23, next autumn.

The story in The Hunger Games, is set in a not-too-distant future, where North America has collapsed and been replaced by Panem, a country divided into the Capitol and 13 districts. Each year The Hunger Games is held, a fight to the death event, which is broadcast all over Panem and every district much pay tribute to the Capitol, by sending out two young participants to the game.

When Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) young sister, Prim, is picked out, she volunteers to take her place and together with her male counterpart, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), the duo most face bigger, stronger participants, who have trained for The Hunger Games, their whole lives.

I like the story, the dystopian setting and the game where a group of teenagers is pitted against each other, in a life and death game. Feels almost like a bizarre twist on Lord of the Flies and I think that Lionsgate might be on to something – this movie could actually be epic, or what are your thoughts about The Hunger Games?

Halloween III Coming 2012?

Although Rob Zombie started the Halloween reboot in 2007 and followed it up with Halloween II in 2009, he will not be onboard for Halloween III, which is currently slated to hit the theaters on October 26, 2012.

Earlier this summer, Trancas International, the production company behind the movie, announced that they had started the production, but they didn’t reveal anything about the cast or the crew though.

However, before the production came to a stop in 2009, the director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer was onboard, with a story that picked up after the last frame of Zombie’s Halloween II. Since then the duo has been occupied with the Hellraiser reboot, but I guess it’s safe to assume that they are the ones that will serve us Halloween III, nonetheless.

Would be kind of strange if they would bring another director and script to the table, considering that a release date has been set? Yet, since release dates are seldom set in stone, things can still change for Halloween III, but I really hope that they manage to deliver this bad boy to us next fall. Anyway, stay tuned for future updates regarding Halloween III.

What are your thoughts about Rob Zombie being absent from Halloween III, good or bad?

Spicy Concept Art for Nurse 3D (2012)

Tim Palen, the photographer who did the marketing campaigns for the Saw movies, has taken this luscious photo for the pre-production poster, for Douglas (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) Aarniokoski’s upcoming horror movie Nurse 3D.

The story line, which the photo kind of summarize, revolves around Abby, a dedicated and caring nurse during the day, but as night falls, she uses her sex appeal to lure cheating men into a brutal and bloody death. When a new nurse shows up, who starts to suspect that Abby has a dark agenda, Abby must find a way to outsmart her, long enough to bring the prime cheater to justice.

Katrina Bowden (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, Sex Drive) and Paz De La Huerla (Choke, Enter the Void), will play the nurses and we could expect to see the result in September next year.
