‘Don’t Breathe’ Trailer: More Horror From the Director of ‘Evil Dead’

by Matt Singer May 13, 2016 @ 10:30 AM
When it premiered at this year’s South by Southwest Film Festival, ScreenCrush’s Britt Hayes called Don’t Breathe “an intense, relentless and confident thriller.” Giving the movie a very solid 7/10 rating, she also called it a “relentlessly intense cat-and-mouse game with a couple of hard lefts thrown into its twisted domestic labyrinth.” All that from Fede Alvarez, the guy who made the relentlessly intense Evil Dead remake. Sold!

A live-action film based on the Monsterpocalypse board game has been in various stages of development for several years, previously delayed due to similarities with Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. But the adaptation of the hit robots vs. monsters game is once again picking up steam, with Evil Dead remake director Fede Alvarez attached to helm what has become the source of a fierce bidding war among major studios

‘Don’t Breathe’ Review: A Relentless Home Invasion Thriller That Borders on Unpleasant

by Britt Hayes March 16, 2016 @ 10:17 AM
What if Rutger Hauer’s relatively absurd, visually-impaired martial arts badass from Blind Fury was besieged by a home invasion in his reclusive Early Bird Special years? The answer is — to an extent — Don’t Breathe, a thriller that skews a little more toward The Collector than David Fincher’s underrated Panic Room. The latest effort from director Fede Alvarez (the Evil Dead remake) is a relentlessly intense cat-and-mouse game with a couple of hard lefts thrown into its twisted domestic labyrinth. It’s a nasty little piece of work that needs to be a bit more lean and slightly less mean.

Although Guillermo del Toro parted ways with Warner Bros. over his vision for Justice League Dark (aka Dark Universe), the studio is still reportedly planning on moving forward with del Toro’s script — but without (almost) everything else that would make it a del Toro film. The other day rumors began circulating about potential cast members, and now comes word that WB is eyeing possible directors for the project as well.

Ecstatic altogether though we are to have ol’ Groovy Bruce back in the saddle for Starz’s Ash vs. Evil Dead, one can’t help wonder if Ash might cross paths with the rebooted Evil Dead world. We’ve heard Sam Raimi say as much before, but are Ash and Mia going to be vs.-ing the Evil Dead any time soon?

'Evil Dead 2' is "Not Going to Happen" Says the Team Behind the Remake

by Mike Sampson October 30, 2013 @ 9:22 AM
At the SXSW premiere of the 'Evil Dead' remake, director Fede Alvarez told the hopped up crowd that Sony Pictures loved the film so much, he was already hard at work writing the sequel. And, when we spoke to producer Rob Tabert the next morning, he told us, "We would love for Fede to do ['Evil Dead 2']."
But, something changed between March and now as the current word is that 'Evil Dead 2' is "not going to happen."

'Dante's Inferno' Movie Enlisting the 'Evil Dead' Director as Its Guide

When you think of 'Dante's Inferno,' one commonly thinks of the epic poem from Dante Alighieri we all read in high school. However, that's not what Universal is adapting with its upcoming live-action movie. It's instead based on the video game, and this adaptation of an adaptation has just found its director.

'Evil Dead' Clip: "You're All Going to Die Tonight"

What's surprising about Fede Alvarez's reboot of 'Evil Dead' is that it's currently got a fresh rating. As both a horror movie and as a remake, that's rare that a film like this isn't torn to pieces. Perhaps that will change after more people get a look at it (it premiered at SXSW, and we gave it a good review), but still. Here's a new clip from the movie.

'Evil Dead' Red Band Trailer: The Red is For Lots and Lots of Blood

by Damon Houx January 3, 2013 @ 8:25 PM
It's hard to be a film fan and not love Sam Raimi's 1981 horror movie 'The Evil Dead.' Not only did it kick off the career of one of the great geeks heroes of cinema, it's one of those scrappy no-budget classics that gets over because of the sheer willpower of the director and the ethos that any character can die at any time. It seems like an untouchable classic. But watching the red band trailer for Fede Alvarez's remake 'Evil Dead?' We're sold on this remake.
