Trailer Spotlight for the upcoming film The Void!

We’ve certainly seen our fair share of 80’s inspired films the last ten years, and the latest seems to be the John Carpenter inspired The Void. This is a clear homage to the classic body horror the 80’s had to offer, with what appears to be a number of practical effects. The film premiered at last years Fantastic Fest to rave reviews. The teaser does it’s job. It gives us a brief glimpse at some of the spectacular visuals this film has to offer, but gives absolutely nothing away in terms of plot. Just based in the visceral images this is sure to be a great for genre fans and 80’s nuts.

Check out the official synopsis:

Encountering a blood-soaked man on a dark deserted road, a police officer rushes the victim to the local hospital. Soon the staff and patients are trapped by a terrifying, otherworldly threat and forced on a hellish voyage into the depths of the building to escape the nightmare. Shocking, haunting and boasting mind-blowing practical special effects, The Void is a new must-see horror event, starring Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World), Kathleen Munroe (Alphas), Aaron Poole (Forsaken) and Kenneth Welsh (The Aviator) and Daniel Fathers. Written and directed by Jeremy Gillespie and Steven Kostanski and from the Executive Producer of The Witch.

The Void is currently with out an American release, but is set to come out in the UK March 31st.

This trailer has been a long time coming. Genre fans have been awaiting the first real look at the film form The Loved Ones director Sean Byrne.

New Halloween movie is not a sequel, but a soft reboot, written by Danny McBride and directed by David Gordon Green!

Blumhouse and Miramax are finally moving forward with their Halloween adaptation which is written by the funny southern dude in every stoner comedy, Danny McBride and director of Pineapple Express David Gordon Green. This seems like an unlikely duo for a classic horror film, but bare in mind that these two officially have John Carpenter’s blessing! Carpenter himself has given the okay on the project, and was even the one who broke the news and said that he may be coming back to do the music.

Danny McBride shed some light on the direction of the film recently, by saying this is not a remake, and that their take will be grounded and a return to more traditional horror and the simplistic beginnings of Myer’s back when he was known as “The Shape.” McBride went on to say “For our mythology were focussed mainly on the two feature movies and what that sets up.” He then said that they will plan to do a “straight up horror movie.” This is officially exciting, If you’ve heard McBride speak in the past, it’s clear he is a massive horror fan and actually got his start in Hollywood writing fantasy, sci-fi and horror.


New clip from the upcoming film Raw

Raw has been getting a lot of buzz thanks to it’s Midnight Madness screening at TIFF where it reportedly had people passing out in the theater. The latest clip for the film showcases it’s artful display of narrative spanning in the form of twp characters literally rolling around covered body paint.

Check out the clip!

The clip is interesting and this film has our attention. The story, at it’s base is a simplistic cannibal plot, but from all accounts this is far more than that. It serves as a pseudo coming of age story about finding ones self, which also happens to include bits of body horror and of course cannibalism.

Raw opens in select cities on March 10th this year, followed by a digital release shortly after.


Indie Horror News: Savagland clip from Terror Films and new trailer for upcoming low budget horror Bethany, starring Tom Green and Shannen Doherty!

A new clip has been made available for the upcoming movie Savageland from Terror Films showcases an interrogation of sorts.

We admittedly know very little about this film at the present time, but the clip is certainly interesting. What we do know is that this film has completed the festival circuit in 2016 garnering major spotlight and accolades at big horror fests like the Eerie Horror Festival and Expo, even winning the best feature. The clip doesn’t reveal much, and unfortunately there is no trailer as of yet, but the film is set to hit various VOD platforms next week the 24th, so hopefully we get one soon. Terror Films, you have officially intrigued us with the clip, looking forward to more news out of this film in the coming days.

Check out the official synopsis:

On the night of June 2, 2011, the largest mass murder in American history occurs in the off-the-grid border town of Sangre de Cristo, Arizona, just a few miles north of Mexico. The entire population of 57 disappears overnight, and the next morning nothing is left but blood trails into the desert…

The police arrest the lone survivor: an illegal immigrant, Francisco Salazar, who is found covered with the blood of a number of his fellow residents. Despite a lack of convincing forensic evidence, Salazar is charged with all the murders, against the backdrop of racial hysteria and paranoia that permeates the US/Mexico border.

During the trial, a compelling new piece of evidence emerges: something terrible and remorseless passed through the town that night, and Salazar was the only one who recorded it. On one roll of film – 36-photographs – is the record of a gruesome wave of horror, and quite possibly, a haunting glimpse of more bloodshed to come.

The first trailer for the upcoming low budget horror from Uncork’d, Bethany, has officially hit the web, and it is pretty damn creepy. Once you get over the culture shock of seeing Tom Green in a movie where he isn’t being abrasive or offensive, the trailer actually hits you pretty hard. Following a woman who moves back to her childhood home and experiences haunting attacks by her childhood imaginary friend. Some of the imagery in the trailer is extremely well developed, and the story seems like something to get excited about, but it is unclear just how Doherty and Green will fair in a straight up horror film like this. Either way the premise is solid.

Check out the trailer in the link below!
