While this year seems to be all about the book-to-movie adaptations, more and more video games are being mined for their cinematic potential. Three months after learning that Legendary's Digital Media and Sony's online video platform/studio Crackle would be making a 'Dead Rising' movie, we now have the full cast and the first plot details.
'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has promised to show us all manner of unusual people from every walk of life, its increasingly grotesque teasers highlighting everything from three legs to clowns that haunt our dreams forever, but now season 4 has a growth of its very own. Our October 8 premiere of 'American Horror Story: Freak Show' has officially expanded to 90 minutes!
'The Walking Dead''s forthcoming "companion" spinoff series has been something of a mystery since its very announcement, but apart from a time or location for the new chapter of Robert Kirkman's zombie apocalypse, we may at last know our main cast. Meet the six new leads of 'The Walking Dead''s new AMC series in a full casting breakdown for the spinoff, which may take place before the walker apocalypse!
The last few years in horror have felt rather stale, but hot on the heels of watching the terrifying and refreshing 'The Babadook' at Fantastic Fest comes 'It Follows,' the sophomore effort from writer/director David Robert Mitchell. Similar to the lo-fi tone of his debut film, 'The Myth of the American Sleepover,' the comparisons end there for Mitchell's follow-up, which smartly and horrifically explores the politics of young adult sexuality.
It's been a long and lonely road waiting for 'The Walking Dead' to return for season 5, much as it is every year, but the folks at Bad Lip Reading knew just how to cheer us up. After treating us to the Governor's musical stylings in a dubbing of 'The Walking Dead''s first three seasons, the parody crew is at it again with a season 4 reading. complete with Carl's very own pop number and zombie chorus.
Casting on 'The Walking Dead' has rarely been forthcoming or attention-grabbing, given the locked-box AMC tends to keep its character identities inside, though the latest official season 5 addition has been a long-time coming. Weeks after being spotted on the set, 'Everybody Hates Chris' and 'Go On' star Tyler James Williams has been confirmed for a role in the new season, but as whom, you ask? Let us shed a little light...
'The Walking Dead' season 5 draws closer and closer to its October 12 premiere, but even with a wealth of footage and photos to show for the AMC horror-drama, fans still have some major questions about the premiere. Answers are coming, as a new trailer for the season 5 premiere puts a familiar face in stealth mode at Terminus, along with a tease of at least three characters in major peril!
It's become increasingly rare for horror films to make an effort to truly scare us these days, but Jennifer Kent's 'The Babadook' gets under the skin in ways that are both visceral and highly emotional. A mediation on a mother's grief and the displacement of that grief onto her son, the film echoes Stephen King's 'The Shining' in many ways, while lead actress Essie Davis gives a chill-inducing performance evocative of vintage Sissy Spacek and Mia Farrow.
Well, we knew this day was coming. The moment 'American Horror Story' revealed that season 4 would inhabit a terrifying 'Freak Show,' we knew that the worst of horror's worst would be on the way: clowns. And while we still don't know exactly what this year's big bad clown killer "Twisty" looks like, the latest teasers and details will already have you running for the hills.
With the ongoing success of the 'V/H/S' series, horror anthologies are officially back. There's something wonderfully old school about these types of movies, where instead of one narrative, we follow three to five completely separate stories. A great horror anthology is just pure horror pleasure: you get several great stories for the price of one. The first 'V/H/S' film brought this concept to the 21st century by making every segment found footage and 'V/H/S 2' upped the ante in every way. So the third film in the franchise has a high bar to surpass and the new trailer makes us confident that they're doing everything in their power to do so.
