Impact Event Trailer: Horror Icons Fight Cannibals in an Apocalyptic Funhouse

Impact Event Trailer: Horror Icons Fight Cannibals in an Apocalyptic Funhouse
We have a brand new trailer for Impact Event, which comes to us from the folks at Wild Eye Releasing. What with Hollywood being shut down for the most part, there are a relatively limited number of movies still scheduled for release right now, and nothing can stop the low-budget horror movie train, it would seem. In this case, we have the latest from director B. Luciano Barsuglia, with a cast led by horror icon Michael Berryman.

The trailer opens up with panic erupting around the world, as an object is hurtling toward Earth and is set to collide with our planet. The results will be catastrophic and, as one can imagine, people of the world don't take the news well. Things get a little bizarre from there as we see several people trying to ride out the craziness in what looks to be an old amusement park attraction. Tensions

Shudder's Cursed Films Trailer Explores Legendary Ill-Fated Horror Movie Productions
Sometimes, what goes on behind the scenes of some of our favorite horror movies are much more terrifying than what winds up on the screen. That point is really driven home in the upcoming Shudder series Cursed Films, which explores the tragic and strange coincidences during the productions of many classic movies. Ahead of the launch of the documentary series in April, Shudder has gone ahead and unveiled a trailer for Cursed Films, and it does a fine job at letting us know what we can expect to see from the series. You can take a look at it below.

As seen in the trailer, multiple horror titles will be showcased for their supposed curses in Cursed Films. That of course includes the Tobe Hooper horror movie Poltergeist, which is famous for an alleged curse which took the lives of several major cast members. Sadly, that includes the horrific deaths

Photos Of Jason’s Mask From Abandoned Friday The 13th Series Emerge

Photos Of Jason’s Mask From Abandoned Friday The 13th Series Emerge
The legal troubles of the Friday the 13th franchise have been dragging on for a long time, and we’re hoping that recent developments in the copyright battle over the series can be resolved this year. In the meantime, we’ve had various attempts at resurrecting Jason in different forms, including a video game and a long in-development television series. And now, we have some behind-the-scenes images of some of the different props planned for the show, courtesy of FridayThe13thFranchise.com.

Producer Sean S. Cunningham was behind a proposed television spinoff, announced in 2014 in the same period where Paramount were attempting to get a new Friday the 13th series off the ground. Of course, there’d previously been an anthology-type Friday the 13th series in the 1980s, although this had only a loose connection to the movies. The new concept would apparently have involved Jason showing up in different time periods,

The Hills Have Eyes Remake Reportedly In Development, Evil Dead Director Eyed

The Hills Have Eyes Remake Reportedly In Development, Evil Dead Director Eyed
One of the best horror movies of the 1970s, Wes Craven’s The Hills Have Eyes helped put the filmmaker on the map following his controversially received debut The Last House on the Left. We received a sequel to the original, as well as an Alexandre Aja remake in 2006, which itself produced a follow-up. But it now seems that, according to our sources, the producers behind the series want to go back for another reboot of the material and are eyeing Fede Álvarez of Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe fame to put it together.

A second remake of The Hills Have Eyes was always a possibility, of course, given the commercial success of Aja’s 2006 remake and the current drive to emulate the success of the Halloween series. To this end, Alvarez is also involved in a new version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, while we should be getting more

Laila Marrakchi Develops Two Female-Driven Projects Including ‘Casa Girls’ (Exclusive)
Paris-based Moroccan filmmaker Laila Marrakchi is developing a pair of daring female-driven projects, “Casa Girls,” a series about four twentysomething single women living in Casablanca, and a drama based on a real-life sex scandal set against an agricultural backdrop in Spain.

Marrakchi, who has so far directed “Rock the Casbah” and “Marock,” both of which were box office hits in Morocco and traveled well, as well as episodes of the hit spy thriller series “The Bureau,” just wrapped the shoot of two episodes of Damien Chazelle’s anticipated Netflix series “The Eddy,” and is getting ready to helm a couple of episodes of “The Opera,” an ambitious show unfolding at the Paris Opera that will start filming next spring.

In between those two shoots, the much sought-after director is developing the scripts of both “Casa Girls” and her next feature film, which will be inspired by a New York Times

10 Underrated Horror Movies from the 2000s You Have to See

With the success of Wes Craven's Scream franchise in the late 1990s, horror was on its way to another resurgence. The renewed interest in slashers may have been short-lived, but it paved the way for other subgenres to flourish. Violence laden horror like Hostel was on the rise, and zombies rose from the dead after 28 Days Later changed the rules. There was no doubt that horror was prolific once again.

Yet for every Saw sequel or any remake like The Hills Have Eyes, there are a number of movies that get overlooked or undervalued. So, here are ten underrated horror movies from the 2000s you have to see.

Interview: Director Alexandre Aja Discusses Crawl, Upcoming Interactive Haunted House Movie, and Adaptation of Junji Ito’s Tomie

  • DailyDead
Nearly one decade after making viewers afraid to go in the water (without risking the loss of an appendage) in Piranha 3D, Alexandre Aja dove back into underwater horror this past summer with Crawl, a claustrophobic thriller that pits college swimmer Haley (Kaya Scodelario) and her estranged father (Barry Pepper) against ravenous alligators amid the chaos of a Category 5 hurricane.

Crawl is undoubtedly one of my favorite moviegoing experiences of 2019, and with the film out now on Blu-ray, DVD, and VOD from Paramount Home Entertainment, Daily Dead had the pleasure of speaking with Aja once again about the ambitious underwater filming for Crawl (which is explored in-depth in the Blu-ray's special features), the serendipity of getting to work with Sam Raimi, and how this water-centric filming experience compared to making Piranha 3D. With plenty of projects on his horizon, we also talked with Aja about his upcoming interactive haunted house

‘3 From Hell’ & The Best Hillbilly Horror

LIonsgate

First there was House of 1,000 Corpses. Then there was The Devil’s Rejects. Now, writer-director Rob Zombie presents the next blood-soaked chapter in the most violent crime saga in movie history, 3 from Hell.

After barely surviving a furious shootout with the police, Baby Firefly (Sheri Moon Zombie), Otis Driftwood (Bill Moseley) and Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig) are behind bars. But pure evil cannot be contained. Teaming up with Otis’ half-brother Wilson (Richard Brake), the demented Firefly clan are back to unleash a whole new wave of death and depravity. A firestorm of murder, madness, and mayhem will be released in this terror ride to Hell and back.

To celebrate the release of 3 From Hell we’re heading deep into the untamed wilds of America (with a brief detour to Belgium!) to round up the nastiest backwoods butchers and most horrific hillbillies ever committed to celluloid.

Crawl Director Alexandre Aja Talks Crafting His Killer Alligator Horror Flick [Exclusive]

Crawl Director Alexandre Aja Talks Crafting His Killer Alligator Horror Flick [Exclusive]
Alexandre Aja has quietly asserted himself as a master of gory horror over the past decade and a half or so with movies like High Tension, The Hills Have Eyes and Piranha 3D. With his latest effort, Crawl, Aja stepped into the world of (relatively) high-budget creature features, and it worked out quite well, based on the general consensus. In a summer that was filled with many disappointing sequels and reboots, this alligator-infested, bloody ride proved to be a huge bright spot.

Crawl centers on a massive hurricane that hits Florida, leading Haley (Kaya Scodelario) to ignore evacuation orders and search for her missing father, Dave (Barry Pepper). Upon finding him in their family home, she discovers her father is gravely injured, as a pack of large alligators has found their way inside. To make matters worse, the two of them become trapped by the rapidly rising floodwaters, with little hope of rescue.

New to Streaming: ‘Midsommar,’ Christian Petzold, ‘Crawl,’ Lina Wertmüller, and More

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options—not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves–each week we highlight the noteworthy titles that have recently hit platforms. Check out this week’s selections below and an archive of past round-ups here.

A Bread Factory (Patrick Wang)

With a small theatrical release and its runtime of four hours (split across two parts) it’s not particularly surprising that Patrick Wang’s A Bread Factory went overlooked last fall, but one should seek it out–and it’s now finally arriving on streaming. One of the best American indies of the year, it is a Rivettian look at an upstate theater company that takes both an authentic look at the mechanics of survival in the arts and a fanciful approach at showing the joy of performance. I don’t imagine the entire thing will work for everyone, but there
