'I Saw the Devil' Remake Coming From 'You're Next,' 'The Guest' Team

Kim Ji-oon's 'I Saw the Devil' is one of the gnarliest thrillers ever made, a hyper-violent plunge into depravity and mayhem that has to be seen to be believed. It's one of the best recent examples of just how crazy South Korean filmmaking can get, and it's tough to imagine any Hollywood film getting away with what this one does. And, of course, it's getting an American remake. But let's not despair quite yet. It seems to be in good hands.

This is not a list of the best movies of 2013. This is simply a list of the best posters. Some represent their movie perfectly. Some actually sell a better, more different movie. But out of the hundreds of one-sheets released this year, these are the 10 that we love the most.

Weekend Box Office Report: 'You're Next' and 'The World's End' Get Served by 'The Butler'

Despite a bunch of new releases with all kinds of wide and varied appeal, this weekend's box office top 10 looks suspiciously like last week's. Apparently, none of the newcomers could match Lee Daniels' 'The Butler,' which effortlessly claimed the top spot once more.

Reel Women: 'You're Next' Takes an Axe to the "Final Girl"

by Britt Hayes August 23, 2013 @ 1:30 PM
'You're Next,' which hits theaters today, is an inventive, fresh, clever and incredibly engaging new horror film from Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard. While it has so much going for it to make it one of the most original horror films in recent memory, there's one crucial element that sets it apart (and above) its horror forebears: the reinvention of the "final girl" trope. Goodbye, final girl. Hello, final woman.

Every so often, a horror movie comes along that changes the course of the genre. Sometimes it's quiet and the ripples are gently felt for decades to come. Sometimes it arrives with a bang and filmmakers loudly chase a new trend for a few years. We're not sure where 'You're Next' will fall on the horror pantheon, but we do know that it feels like something special. Here are 10 groundbreaking horror films that defied expectations and forever changed how audiences and filmmakers approached the genre.

'You're Next' Review

by Matt Singer August 20, 2013 @ 7:00 AM
Watching Hollywood's endless parade of genre remakes, sequels and ripoffs can get pretty discouraging -- enough to convince you there's no undiscovered country left out there; that it's all been done before and filmmakers will keep repeating themselves over and over again until the end of time. Thank goodness, then, for something like 'You're Next,' which is scary and fun, and, best of all, fresh and original. It restores your faith in the future of horror movies.

'You're Next' Exclusive Poster: Beware of the Wolf

by Britt Hayes August 14, 2013 @ 3:17 PM
We've received a disturbing (and pretty damn cool) exclusive poster from Lionsgate for the highly-anticipated upcoming home invasion thriller 'You're Next' -- it's one in a series of posters focusing on the "animals" of the film, the sinister killers who wear creepy animal masks. And this one highlights the dangerous and deadly wolf mask. We'd tell you who wears it in the film, but that would spoil all the fun.

Why Are All the Best Horror Films Coming Out in the Summer?

2013 sees the release of two of the most effective mainstream horror films I've seen in years. Both 'The Conjuring' and 'You're Next' are terrific crowd-pleasers that wisely shake up the stale formula of studio horror movies. Yet, both of these films won't be in theaters come October, when most of us are really hungry for a good, scary movie. ('The Conjuring' is in theaters now and 'You're Next' opens on August 23.)
Meanwhile, looking at the current release schedule for October, there is an almost complete lack of any substantial horror presence (the 'Carrie' remake and a film titled 'Haunt' that we're still unsure will actually make its scheduled date are the only genre films of note).
So, what gives? Why have the best horror movies shifted to the summer and why has October become the home of 'Runner Runner' and 'Escape Plan'?
