The Invitation (I) (2015)
Hey, we all have to keep living despite terror; thus I'm forced to ask, "Should we schedule in bingeing horror classics on top of staying afloat amidst disabling uncertainty?" Absolutely. A semi-frequent check in on the news seems necessary but our days and nights can't purely be worry. What we need, in addition to food, water, conversation, meditation, moderate exercise, and the occasional nut, is film of the utmost escapist variety.

To My Great Chagrin: The Unbelievable
Achingly memorable scenes like this make The Other Lamb a shattering film, the type of harrowing genre entry that should develop a strong following.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blumhouse Productions — the studio that found recent box office success with its classic monster update The Invisible Man — is exploring a modern reimagining of Dracula. Karyn Kusama (Destroyer, Jennifer’s Body) is currently set to direct the project.
Though Bram Stoker’s 19th-century Dracula story is now in the public domain, sources told THR that the movie will likely end up with Universal Studios as it reboots its pantheon of monster-movie characters.
The last Dracula movie to hit theaters was Dracula Untold
THR reports that a Dracula film is now in the works with Karyn Kusama on board to direct and her collaborators Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay will write the script. Coming off Destroyer and The Invitation, the filmmaking team has not revealed any more details on what form this film may take, but we imagine it’s less Van Helsing and more of a grounded, visceral approach if Kusama’s previous films are any indication. Luke Evans last lead a live-action take on the Count Dracula character with 2014’s Dracula Untold,
The new Dracula movie will be helmed by Karyn Kusama. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, who teamed with Kusama on those latter two films, will write the screenplay. Kusama also recently directed an episode of HBO’s adaptation of Stephen King’s The Outsider.
Universal has learned some lessons since unwrapping The Mummy, starring Tom Cruise, in
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Karyn Kusama (Destroyer) will be directing this new Dracula movie with Jason Blum of Blumhouse producing. Kusama is no stranger to the horror genre, as she previously directed the Megan Fox monster movie Jennifer's Body.
Karyn Kusama, whose credits include “Destroyer,” “The Invitation” and “Jennifer’s Body,” is attached to direct the Dracula project. Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, who teamed with Kusama on “Destroyer” and “The Invitation,” are writing the script.
The project is not set at a studio. Blumhouse has a first-look deal at Universal and partnered with the studio on “The Invisible Man.”
The Count Dracula character was created by Bram Stoker in his 1897 novel “Dracula” as the vampire moved from Transylvania to England and battled with Professor Abraham Van Helsing. The character was memorably portrayed by Bela Lugosi in Universal’s “Dracula” in 1931. Luke Evans played the vampire in 2014’s “Dracula Untold,” which grossed $217 million worldwide for Universal.
Universal has already been moving towards duplicating the success of “The Invisible Man,
Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay, who have collaborated with Kusama on “Destroyer” and “The Invitation,” are writing the script.
Blumhouse is just coming off a hit with Leigh Whannell’s “The Invisible Man,” which grossed $102.2 million worldwide based off a $7 million budget. While the “Dracula” project isn’t set up at Universal Pictures just yet, it would make sense given Universal has a first look deal with Blumhouse, and Dracula is part of Universal’s Classic Monsters, alongside Godzilla, Frankenstein, The Mummy, and The Invisible Man.

Concept Trailer for A Precise Understanding of Darkness: "Horror fans will experience a unique tale of terror during the feature-length film A Precise Understanding of Darkness, and the filmmakers are giving an early look at this intense journey into myth and madness with the recently released concept trailer.

“This film is an ode to the psychological horror films over the years that have inspired me,” writer-director R. Shanea Williams says. “I believe there’s nothing scarier than the human mind, and this film will bring that belief to vivid life. And, because we are centering the
“It was that feeling of — and it’s a bit of a stretch — ‘Wait, Obama is being elected.’ America is finally rising up to its convictions,” she said as the film took home four Oscars, including best picture, director, original screenplay and international feature.
She also believed the wins by “Hair Love” and “Jojo Rabbit” signaled change, hope and a reflection of the business.

The new company will be headed by producer Lindsay Lanzillotta and will serve as a boutique aggregator for indie films under the $2 million range. It will also handle distribution, marketing, and advertising for these films that will release via digital platforms. On top of that, they will hone in on underrepresented voices when it comes to filmmakers, artists, and stories.
“It is our hope that filmmakers will feel comfortable that we can provide experienced guidance of their distribution service options and to have a financially conscious outcome for their film while maintaining a level of control,” said Lanzillotta. “We hope to make filmmakers aware and
