Pop-singer-turned-actress Mandy Moore and Aquarius star Claire Holt play cage-diving sisters trapped In The Deep of Johannes Roberts’ upcoming shark thriller, set to release on home platforms and VOD Aug. 2 from Dimension Films, Anchor Bay Entertainment, and Starz Digital.
In The Deep finds Moore and Holt vacationing in Mexico off the coast of Huatulco on a cage-diving expedition to observe Great White sharks. When the cables snap and the cage sinks to the bottom of the ocean, the sisters have less than an hour of oxygen to get back to the surface in shark infested waters.
In The Deep marks Mandy Moore’s horror debut. The busty singer is best known for a string of romantic comedies and Disney fare.
Claire Holt made her horror debut in 2009’s Messengers 2: The Scarecrow. After a recurring role in ABC Family/Freeform’s sexy teen soap “Pretty Little Liars,” Holt went on to star on The CW’s “Vampire Diaries” and its spinoff “The Originals.” She also co-stars on NBC’s Charles Manson drama “Aquarius.”
Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Lights Out, a creepy new frightener from producer James Wan (The Conjuring) marking the feature film debut of director David F. Sandberg (Annabelle 2). Written by Eric Heisserer (The Thing, 2011), the film stars Teresa Palmer as a woman revisited by a childhood terror.
Lights Out is Palmer’s return to our beloved genre since 2011’s horror-comedy Warm Bodies. The Aussie stunner first caught fright fans eyes as a mean schoolgirl in Takashi Shimizu’s The Grudge 2 in 2006. Additional creds include I Am Number Four, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, Bedtime Stories, and Restraint.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story follows the Rebellion team tasked with stealing the plans to the Empire’s Death Star, leading to its destruction in the 1977 original Star Wars: A New Hope. Set to release Dec. 16, the prequel is directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and written by Chris Weitz (Cinderella).
EW has scored a tremendous amount of exclusives, but there is only one revelation that makes us happier than a Wookiee winning a game of Dejarik – the return of our Sith Lord, Darth Vader! EW confirms what we all wondered the minute Rogue One was announced. Now, nothing else matters.
Move over Blake Lively, Tara Reid isn’t ready to give up her reign as shark babe. The much maligned Sharknado star returns to franchise in its third sequel Sharknado: The 4th Awakens, winning an obviously rigged social media campaign deciding her character’s fate.
While there’s no way we’d believe an actress so hated as Reid would be voted back into the fold by social media users, we’re happy Syfy is bringing back the American Pie stunner. We haven’t actually seen any of the Sharknado films, but we like having a reason to post her bikini pictures.
A trailer has gone online for German director Marcel Walz’s remake of Blood Feast, the 1963 H.G. Lewis classic that carries the distinction of being the very first splatter film. Walz’s credits include Seed 2 and Le Petite Mort (Little Death).
Robert Rusler, they called him “Mad” Max in Weird Science, plays an American restaurateur in France, moonlighting at a museum where he falls for an Egyptian deity demanding human sacrifice, including the lives of his wife and daughter.
Stunners Sophie Monk of The Hills Run Red and Sadie Katz (pictured above) of Wrong Turn 6 play Rusler’s daughter and evil goddess, respectively. No word on a release date as of yet.
Graham Skipper makes his directorial debut with Sequence Break. Skipper is a familiar face to horror fans, starring in a long string of indie frighteners. But, his performance as mad scientist Herbert West in Stuart Gordon’s Re-Animator musical is what’s got us excited to see what the man does behind the camera.
If that weren’t enough, Sequence Break is toplined by Starry Eyes stunner Fabianne Therese, playing a young woman who shares a tight and unexpected bond with a down-on-his-luck arcade technician afflicted by horrific hallucinations brought forth by a new machine at his shop.
Sequence Break is written by Skipper and co-stars Chase Williamson (The Guest), Audrey Wasilewski (”Big Love”), and Lyle Kanouse (Auto Focus). Shooting on the film is already underway.
Sad news broke today revealing the death of young actor Anton Yelchin, 27, in a freak automobile accident that left him pinned between his car and a brick mailbox at his San Fernando Valley residence Sunday morning. The car was in neutral with its motor running TMZ reports. He was found at 1am by friends.
Yelchin is best known for playing Pavel Chekov in J.J. Abrams 2009’s Star Trek reboot and young Kyle Reese in McG’s Terminator: Salvation. But, horror fans enjoyed his performances in a string of notable films beginning with 2001’s adaptation of James Patterson’s Along Came a Spider.
Since then he went on to star in the awesome 2011 remake of Tom Holland’s Fright Night, Stephen Sommers’ 2013 adaptation of Dean Koontz’s Odd Thomas, Joe Dante’s horror-comedy Burying the Ex, vampire drama Only Lovers Left Alive, and this year’s acclaimed cat-and-mouse thriller Green Room.
Producer and actor James Franco’s re-imagining of the 1996 thriller Mother, May I Sleep with Danger premieres tonight on Lifetime in honor of the original’s 20-year anniversary. Based on Claire Rainwater Jacobs’ novel about a young girl and her stalker boyfriend, the remake is revamped with lesbian vampires!
Tori Spelling, who played the object of the stalker’s obsession in the original film, returns in the role of the girl’s suspicious mother. Leila George, daughter of Vincent D’Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket), makes her acting debut as the love struck teen – this time enamored with a lesbian bloodsucker.
