A trailer has gone online for Lords of Chaos, Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund’s ode to Norwegian black metal pioneers Mayhem — a band so diabolically disturbed they make Slayer look like choir boys. Rory Culkin stars as the group’s founder Øystein Aarseth, know by his stage name, Euronymous.

Anne Hathaway of Getting Us Excited for ‘Witches’ Adaptation!

anna-hathaway-hot

Anne Hathaway is set to star as the Grand High Witch in director Robert Zemeckis’ adaptation of the 1983 British children’s novel “The Witches” for Warner Bros. Coming off his criminally underrated Welcome to Marwin, Zemeckis will also write the film’s screenplay and produce alongside Alfonso Cuaron (Roma) and Guillermo del Toro.

Envisioned as an American period piece, The Witches is set in the Gothic South during the 60s and follows a young, orphaned boy taught to identify witches by his grandmother, a former witch hunter. The Grand High Witch rules over all witches and orchestrates a plan to turn children into mice to be killed like vermin.

Hathaway is coming off Nacho Vigalondo’s trippy sci-fi comedy Colossal. Her notable genre creds include the 2008 thriller Passengers, Tim Burton’s awful Alice In Wonderland, and Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight Rises and Interstellar.

Sarah Michelle Gellar Won’t Get Outta Bed In ‘Sometimes I Lie’

Sarah Michelle Gellar is dipping her foot back into the horror pool with the psychological thriller Sometimes I Lie, an adaptation of the international bestselling novel by Alice Feeney written for the screen by Robin Swicord (Curious Case of Benjamin Button).

Gellar plays a woman who wakes up in the hospital paralyzed and unable to speak nor open her eyes, but can hear those around her and suspects her husband is responsible for her condition. The show alternates between her present state, childhood memories, and the week before her accident.

Gellar, best known for her iconic turn as Buffy Summers in Joss Whedon’s hit series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” made quite a splash in horror early in her career, starring in blockbuster films The Grudge 1 & 2, I Know What You Did Last Summer, and Scream 2. Maybe this is a step back in the right direction?

Vanessa Hudgens co-stars as his mousey neighbor out in the snowny woods where he’s taken refuge. She becomes a liability when she’s abducted by the killers in a ploy to draw him out. Hudgens has looked better, but it’s good to see the Machete Kills and Springbreakers stunner getting back to thrillers.

stranger-things-3

Netflix has set a July 4 premiere date for season three of its hit original series “Stranger Things.” The highly anticpated show wrapped filming some time ago, but its creators are making us wait because we rightfully hated the horrible seventh episode (”The Lost Sister”) of an otherwise stellar season two.

That’s our theory anyway and, yes, we’re pulling it out of our ass. Regardless of why the long wait, we most likely will forgive once the action starts and we find ourselves with the gang battling the evils of the upside down. Speaking of which…peep the thrilling new teaser premiered during New Year’s Eve.
