Magnolia Pictures has released a trailer for writer/director Nick Tomnay’s tables-turned psychological thriller The Perfect Host, starring Swimfan’s Clayne Crawford and “Frasier” star David Hyde Pierce in his first horror flick since 1994’s Wolf.
The Perfect Host follows career criminal John Taylor (Crawford) as he takes up residence in the home of Warwick Wilson, a seemingly nice guy prepping a meal for a special dinner party that will leave a very bad taste in his assailant’s mouth.
The film arrives in selected theaters for a limited run on July 1. It will, however, be available nationwide On-Demand on May 27.
Dimension Films hosted the world premiere for Wes Craven’s much buzzed about sequel Scream 4 last night at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA. Joining Craven on the red carpet were original Scream players Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and everyone’s favorite cougar Courteney Cox.
Party crashers included writer/director/actor Eli Roth, Antichrist Superstar Marilyn Manson, sisters Patricia and Rosanna Arquette, “American Idol” David Cook, Fall Out Boy Pete Wentz, and director Robert Rodriguez and Electra Avellan.
Written by Scream creator Kevin Williamson, Scream 4 is the start of a new trilogy that aims to frighten audiences while once again poking fun at modern day horror cliches. To date, the series has earned over $500 million in worldwide coin.
Genre babe Suzi Lorraine is set to star in director Geoff Klein’s Pinup Dolls On Ice, the much anticipated sequel to his inspired 2009 masterpiece Bikini Girls on Ice. According to Klein, the film will have more boobs (!), blood, and back-story on serial killer Moe.
The synopsis reads:
The Pinup Dolls are a hot retro act who put the tease back in striptease. But when an old friend (Suzi Lorraine) hires them to put on a show at a secluded campground, the girls find themselves being stalked by a homicidal maniac with a sick obsession with ice.
As they’re hunted one-by-one, they soon realize they’ll have to rely on more than just their looks to survive this nightmare named Moe.
Lorraine has starred in over 40 indie flicks including the fem-driven slasher Chainsaw Sally, the cannibal chiller Destined to be Ingested, and my next Netflix pick The Lord of the G-strings: Th Femaleship of the String. The 29-year-old New York City native also writes a column for the U.K. fright mag Gorezone.

G-rated hotties Carly Schroeder (”Lizzie McGuire”), Chloe Bridges (Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam), and Brie Gabrielle (”Hannah Montana”) go all kinds of wild in Phase 4 Film’s R-rated teen-frightener Forget Me Not, available On-Demand on May 3 and on DVD May 24.
The synopsis reads:
It’s graduation weekend, and Sandy Channing (Schroeder), the popular class president of her small-town high school, should be enjoying the time of her life. But when her friends start disappearing, Sandy discovers they have unwittingly awakened the vengeful spirit of a girl they wronged long ago. Fighting for her sanity and her life, Sandy must unlock a dark secret from her own past before it’s too late.
This flick definitely has an I Know What You Did Last Summer vibe—which is aces for me. I love me some teen deaths, especially if the young whippersnappers are pretty and privileged and have their own teeth!
Forget Me Not marks cinematographer Tyler Oliver’s directorial debut and costars 26-year-old stunner Jillian Murray (The Graves). The film’s vagina-less costars include Cody Linley (”Hannah Montana”), Zachary Abel (”The Secret Life of the American Teenager”), Micah Alberti (”Wildfire”), and Sean Wing (”Beautiful People”).
