20th Century Fox has released a trailer for The Pyramid, a survival frightener from producer Alexandre Aja (Piranha, High Tension) and first-time director Gregory Levasseur, writer of Maniac, Mirrors, The Hills Have Eyes, High Tension, and the underrated P2.
Ashley Hinshaw stars as a member of a team of U.S. archaeologists trapped in an ancient pyramid underneath the Egyptian desert. Making matters worse are the underground dwellers hunting them down. Genre fans will recognize Hinshaw from roles in Chronicle, +1, Rites of Passage and porno tale Cherry.
Along with being talented filmmakers, one of the other things that make American Mary directors Jen and Sylvia Soska so damn awesome to male horror fans is their ability to perv out like dudes. Proof of that can be found in this clip for their new movie See no Evil 2, starring the very hot Katharine Isabelle.
See No Evil 2 finds a group of friends partying at the morgue where their mortician friend works… and the not so final resting spot for serial killer Jacob Goodnight. In the clip, Isabelle gets a little too excited ::ahem:: coming across Jacob’s corpse.
See No Evil 2 will hold its world premiere at this year’s Screamfest L.A.
Lionsgate has released a trailer for its new Big Foot frightener Exists. The film marks director Eduardo Sanchez’s return to the found-footage genre he ushered in with 1999’s game-changer The Blair Witch Project. Written by Jamie Nash (Lovely Molly), the film follows a group of friends stalked by Big Foot.
The synopsis reads:
For five friends, it was a chance for a summer getaway— a weekend of camping in the Texas Big Thicket. But visions of a carefree vacation are shattered with an accident on a dark and desolate country road.
In the wake of the accident, a bloodcurdling force of nature is unleashed—something not exactly human, but not completely animal— an urban legend come to terrifying life…and seeking murderous revenge.
Exists stars Dora Madison Burge (”Friday Night Lights”), Roger Edwards (Bad Kids Go to Hell) and Denise Williamson (pictured above), who spoke with Clatto about her experience in an exclusive interview late last year. She told us about her character, working with Sanchez, shooting in the woods, and what monsters truly terrify her. To peep the interview, click here.
The Purge and “Teen Wolf” star Adelaide Kane takes The Devil’s Hand on Oct. 10 in LD Entertainment’s new supernatural thriller from director Christian E. Christiansen (The Roommate). Kane plays one of six girls born on the sixth day of the six month, and meant for sacrifice to the Devil on their 18th birthday.
The film is written by Karl Mueller (The Divide) and co-stars stunners Jennifer Carpenter (”Dexter”), Leah Pipes (Sorority Row) , Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm) and Katie Garfield (Stuck in Love). Rufus Sewell (Gods of Egypt) and Thomas McDonell (Life After Beth) round out the cast.
MPI Pictures has released a new trailer for Kink, an indie documentary from producer James Franco about San Francisco-based BDSM porn website Kink.com. If you’re really into horror, chances are flowers and cascading waterfalls don’t really get you in the mood for love. You need intensity and serious hardware.
Now granted, the majority of these porn freaks aren’t the brightest peanuts in the turd, and have most likely suffered some irreparable emotional damage, but damn if those BDSM contraptions don’t look hot as fuck! It’s like Jigsaw meets Dr. Ruth type shit for couples. Hit the mute button, and enjoy!
Stunning British lad magazine model Beth Humphreys makes her feature acting debut in Parlor, a survival frightener from writer/directors Devon Downs and Kenny Gage, producer and writer of all-girl fight-to-the-death thriller Raze.
Parlor follows six college bound kids vacationing in Eastern Europe as they fall victim to a deranged tattoo artist’s “fiendish side business.” Humphreys plays Stephanie, a character we hope is given a frivolous nude shower scene before being offed.
Humphrey’s co-stars include Tiffany DeMarco (Raze), Claire Garvey, Ben Whalen (The Coed and the Zombie Stoner), Jordan James Smith (Zombie Night), Anthony Del Negro (Dead Souls), ink-slinger Sara Fabel, and horror icon Robert LaSardo (”Nip/Tuck”) as “The Artist,” the film’s psycho killer.
Parlor makes its world premiere at this year’s Screamfest LA film festival, taking place Oct. 14 – 23 at the TCL Chinese 6 Theater in Hollywood, CA.
She’s no spring chicken, but Gina Gershon (Killer Joe) is still finger licking good (yes, you just read that). Gershon is part of the cast recently announced for Bad Kids Go 2 Hell, an unexpected, but very welcomed, sequel to the original adaptation of Matthew Spradlin and Barry Wernick’s comic book series.
Joining Gershon in the film are Sean Astin (”The Strain”) and his daughter Ali Astin, Nickelodeon star Drake Bell, Sophia Taylor Ali (“Tyrant”), and Sammi Hanratty (”Salem”), among others. Bad Kids Go to Hell actor Ben Browder makes his directorial debut with the sequel, and reprises his role as janitor Max.
Bad Kids Go 2 Hell picks up four years after the events from the original film, and finds a group of five prep school students fighting for their lives after pulling a prank on a teacher during Saturday detention. Production is currently underway in Texas for a 2015 release.
Hammer has released a teaser for The Women in Black: Angel of Death, a sequel to its 2012 supernatural hit starring Daniel Radcliffe. Directed by Tom Harper and written by Jon Croker and Woman in Black author Susan Hill, Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox and Jeremy Irvine (War Horse).

As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House.
One by one the children begin acting strangely and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and escape the wrath of The Woman in Black.
Dimension Films has released a trailer for Amityville: The Awakening, a reboot of the chilling 1979 classic horror film about a family tormented by the demonic forces occupying their home.

Amityville stars Jennifer Jason Leigh (Single White Female) as a single mother who moves with her three children into a new house in Amityville, New York to be close to the neurological hospital department taking care of her comatose son. Unfortunately for the new transplants, the house is evil.
Not sure we’re digging the whole brother in a coma angle… okay, we’re not, but the Amityville house is still pretty terrifying in its own right.
