Orion Pictures and Blumhouse Tilt have released a red-band trailer for The Belko Experiment, an office-set survival frightener helmed by Wolf Creek director Greg McLean and penned by Guardians of the Galaxy writer/director James Gunn.
The Belko Experiment takes place in an American corporate office in South America taken over by mysterious captors who threaten to slaughter employees if they don’t kill one another in a bizarre game of survival. Hmm… still better than the company holiday potluck if you ask us.
Life’s a bitch for animal shelter employee Seth. He’s just run into the crush of his life and she’s still as hot and unattainable as ever. He does his best to win her over, but his best is creepy and reeks of desperation – so much so he can’t even score after taking her hostage and locking her in a dog cage!
Pet stars Dominic Monaghan (”LOST”) as Seth and Ksenia Solo (”Orphan Black”) as Holly, the unusually rabid object of his misguided affections. Carles Torrens (Apartment 143) directs from a script by Jeremy Slater (”The Exorcist”). Pet arrives in selected theaters and VOD on Dec. 2 and on DVD Dec. 27.
Jaclyn Betham is set to be a horror fan’s new crush with a starring role in the indie frightener Getaway Girls. The ballerina-turned-actress plays a woman abducted by a backwoods cult during a lakeside retreat with her hot BFFs.
Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) and Landry Allbright (Cameron Poe’s daughter in Con Air) play the hot friends in the film, which marks the directorial debut of Lane Toran, Betham’s husband and the voice of Arnold in the animated series “Hey Arnold!”
Betham made her horror debut in the frighteningly awful Tyler Perry created cable series “The Haves and the Have Nots.” She can also be seen in the satirical slasher Ulterior Motives: Reality TV Massacre.
There are strip joints throughout this great country of ours where the dancers do not look like what you would expect and the patrons are anything but gentlemen. Indie darling Bel Powley (Diary of a Teenage Girl) plays Cherry, one such stripper in the alternate reality thriller Detour.
Cherry is the troubled girlfriend of a violent criminal who’s volunteered them to carry out vengeance for a man who blames his stepfather for the accident that has left his mother in a vegetative state. Christopher Smith, director of awesome fright indies Severance, Triangle, and Black Death is at the helm.
Sarah Shahi has always been a person of interest for us since we first caught glimpse of her cuffed in a compromising position by Chris Tucker in Rush Hour 3 and as sexy lesbian DJ Carmen de la Pica Morales on Showtimes’ “The L Word.”
Of course, true love didn’t come until Shahi joined CBS police procedural and AI sci-fi drama “Person of Interest” as sexy and brooding, bisexual government assassin Dr. Sameen Shaw. Now, we’ll watch her pick her nose sitting on a chair if that were all that’s available.
Hangman finds Shahi playing a police captain overlooking a case involving a decorated homicide detective (Al Pacino) and a criminal profiler (Karl Urban) on the trail of a serial killer obsessed with the childhood game of Hangman. Complicating matters is the crime journalist shadowing them (Brittany Snow).
If you thought Wes Craven’s Scream taught you everything you needed to know to survive the trappings of a horror film in real life, you clearly overthought things. When it comes to not getting murdered by a monster or a dude in a burlap sack, you only need to know one thing… Don’t Fuck in the Woods.
Part PSA, part creature-feature throwback, Don’t Fuck in the Woods is gruesome, good fun from the mind of some guy named Shawn Burkett. The flick follows a group of college graduates attempting to survive the evil they unleash when they recklessly tempt the fates by fucking in the woods.
Head to Concept Media Films’ website to buy Don’t Fuck in the Woods on DVD or Blu-ray!
Sony Pictures opens its Christmas tent-pole Passengers on Dec. 21 and it isn’t taking any chances in drumming up interest for the space-set romance thriller. In its first clip for the movie, the studio has chosen to release a gravity loss scene featuring Jennifer Lawrence in a revealing white swimsuit.
Well played, Sony. Well played.
Passengers stars Lawrence and Christopher Pratt as strangers on a spacecraft to a new planet who are awakened from their sleep pods 90 years too early by a ship malfunction that threatens to wipe out the 5000 still sleeping passengers on board.
The opening sequence to Paramount Pictures’ big screen adaptation of the Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell has gone online. An homage to the source material, the clip provides a provocative peek at Scarlett Johansson’s magnificent boobs as cyborg crime-fighter The Major.
Ghost in the Shell arrives in theaters March 31, 2017. Unlike The Major in the manga, Johansson will not go nude but will be wearing a thermoptic suit meant to fool us into thinking we’re seeing more than we are. Does it work? Check out the clip to see, but be warned of Kenji Kawai’s ear-ache of a score.
Puberty is never easy, but it would be especially tough if going through it in the presence of Genesis Rodriguez (Tusk). The Latina stunner joins Eddie Alcazar’s psychological thriller about a volatile teenage boy seeking help for his deranged thoughts at a mysterious clinic conducting genetic experiments.
Puberty is toplined by Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch) and also stars Japanese actress Tao Okamoto (Batman v Superman). Cameras roll this winter in Los Angeles.
Rodriguez, daughter of international pop idol José Luis Rodríguez (aka El Puma), made her horror debut in Kevin Smith’s Tusk and Yoga Hosers. She can also be seen inthe underrated actioners The Last Stand and Man on a Ledge, in which she plays the hottest heist babe ever.
Well, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle… Kong: Skull Island just might be as awesome a King Kong movie as Peter Jackson’s 2005 epic. Helmed by some dude named Jordan Vogt-Roberts for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, the film looks every bit as gorgeous as Jackson’s and a lot meaner!
Kong: Skull Island follows a team of explorers on an uncharted Pacific Island unaware of the monsters their expedition has unleashed and the beast who rules the land. Starring in this epic are Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly, and Oscar-winner Brie Larson.
