Exclusive: 'The Bone Box' heads towards pre-production

The Bone Box THE BONE BOX is a new horror film moving towards pre-production. Written and to-be-directed by first-time helmer, Luke Genton, the film follows a grave robber who comes to believe he’s being haunted by those he stole from.

THE BONE BOX is a one-location, character-driven ghost story in the vein of THE OTHERS and INSIDIOUS. The film stars Maria Olsen (STARRY EYES, PERCY JACKSON & THE OLYMPIANS: THE LIGHTNING THIEF), Austin Highsmith (DOLPHIN TALE, DOLPHIN TALE 2, GANGSTER SQUAD), and Gareth Koorzen (MY NAME IS VIVIENNE). Rounding out the cast is the popular Katie Parker (ABSENTIA, OCULUS).

THE BONE BOX is a passion project; one that Genton has been developing with Koorzen for the past year. The team is attaching talent, shooting a teaser, and will soon be launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project. Check out a full synopsis below, watch for more news on the Kickstarter campaign, and if you want to learn more about the movie, in general, you can contact Luke Genton at LGenton[at]gmail.com.

House of Manson, directed by Brandon Slagle, the filmmaker best known for The Black Dahlia Haunting and Dead Sea, stars Ryan Kiser as Charles Manson, and tells the story of the rise and fall of The Manson Family. The film also stars Devanny Pinn, Reid Warner, Serena Lorien, Suzi Lorraine, Chriss Anglin, Erin Marie Hogan, Tristan Risk, Britt Griffith, Max Wasa, Adrian Quihuis, Mel Turner, Julie Rose, Ryan Cleary,Tawny Amber Young, Trish Cook, Jason McNeil, Amy Hessler, and many, many more.

Given its large and popular cast, it is no wonder that House of Manson had such a well-attended Los Angeles premier at the North Hollywood Cinefest on Monday, April 13th. The film had such an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the audience, made up of filmmakers, actors, and fans of Director Brandon Slagle's previous films, that rather than give my own impression, I decided to talk to some of the audience to get their immediate, unfiltered reactions to the film.

Corpsy Rhine, publisher and deaditor-in-chief at Girls and Corpses magazine had a visceral reaction to the movie, stating that "House of Manson is like being in the room invisible and watching the entire gore and mayhem and feeling each stab in your own body. Ryan Kiser gives a haunting, brilliant, and oddly sympathetic portrayal of Manson."

Exclusive: Interview with 'BETHANY' Director James Cullen Bressack and special guest Zack Ward

James Cullen Bressack and Zack WardInterview by Kevin Scott
MoreHorror.com

I had the privilege recently to talk with the very talented director James Cullen Bressack. He’s becoming the Cameron Crowe of Horror directors by being a wunderkind and showing mind blowing talent as a writer and director even before he could buy his own beer. I was grateful to get some insight from him, find out what inspired him, and see what’s next. Special thanks to actor/producer/writer Zack Ward for joining in on the interview.

KS: I know that you get this a lot, but you are a really young guy. You seem so close to the golden age of VHS, with a love for such classics as “Basket Case” and the William Lustig films, yet you are a generation removed. How did you discover them?

JCB: I got really into watching VHS stuff. My Dad had “Hellraiser” on VHS. I just always had a love for horror and a desire to see more and more crazy stuff. I just gravitated to the films of the 1980’s. Then my uncle suggested “Basket Case” to me and told me that I would like it. It ended up being one of those films that changed my perception. I just love really violent stuff, the grosser the better. I have an Elite Hunting tattoo from “Hostel” on my chest.

KS: Did you grow up in California, I know that your parents worked in the entertainment industry?

JCB: Yeah, I grew up in Los Angeles.

KS: I know you love the original “Maniac”. I thought the Lustig and Aja produced remake was pretty solid. Did you like it?

JCB: I love the first person POV stuff.

KS: Did you go to film school?

JCB: For a week, and then I ended up dropping out. I often say that “My Pure Joy” was my film school.

The Devil is coming back in 'Krampus: The Devil Returns'

By Seth Metoyer
MoreHorror.com

Director Jason Hull will be helming the sequel to his 2014 film Krampus: The Christmas Devil. Krampus: The Devil Returns will begin filming this winter. Read all about if below!

From The Press Release:
Director Jason Hull and Snowdog Studio announce their sequel to 2014's"Krampus: The Christmas Devil," in "Krampus: The Devil Returns." Jason states that production on this rendition will be further elevated, promising to include more of "what the fans requested," in more blood, more Krampus, more Santa, and a spectacular cast.

Attached to the film are Bill Moseley (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Devil's Rejects), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th VII, VIII, and X, Frozen), Robert Mukes (House of 1,000 Corpses), Tiffani Fest (Circus of the Dead), and scream queen darling Melantha Blackthorne (Sinners and Saints, A Grim Becoming) will be joining various returning members from the prior cast, including Rich Goteri, Mike Mili, A.J. Leslie, Darin Foltz, and Paul Ferm returning as Santa. Krampus is based on actual mythology dating back to 17th century Alpine/Eastern European lore. Krampus is Saint Nick's evil brother. However, unlike St. Nick, Krampus brings wrath on children who misbehave. This story takes place shortly after the demise of Jeremy's (A.J. Leslie) family. Krampus has returned to this small community and is seemingly out of control on his quest to punish bad children.

First 'Dwelling' trailer emerges from the darkness

Dwelling Trailer Released
By Seth Metoyer
MoreHorror.com

The first official trailer for the exciting upcoming paranormal thriller Dwelling from writer/director Kyle Mecca has released.

The film features two of my favorite cinematic Sirens, Erin Marie Hogan and Devanny Pinn. I really like what I see so far. Looking forward to the film!

Check out all the details below, including the trailer.

From The Press Release:
BeWILdered Media Productions, the independent film production company based in , has released the first trailer for their upcoming film “Dwelling."

Driven by a horrific experience in her past involving her sister, River (Devanny Pinn), Ellie releases a soul that is more malevolent and terrifying than she could ever imagine.

Exclusive: A Drunken Video Interview with Jessica Cameron

Interview conducted by Jonathan Weichsel
MoreHorror.com

Awhile ago Jessica Cameron and I tried an experiment where I would interview her, but instead of conducting our interview sober like most sane celebrities do, we would drink throughout until we were both completely wasted. What you are about to see is an hour and forty-one minute drunken interview edited by Evan A. Baker from three hours of footage shot by a sober and very patient John Cox over the course of a four hour drinking binge.

The result is, to say the least, raw. Jessica and I both start out our charming and likeable media-friendly bests. But, we soon descend into drunkenness, and that's where the interview gets interesting. This is about the most real and unfiltered look at two public figures you are likely to find online. We fight, argue, and bicker over trivial topics, say things one really shouldn't say in a public interview, and show sides of ourselves that public figures ordinarily fight hard to keep hidden.

This is an interview that shows Jessica and I both at our best, and at our worst. I admit freely that I am an angry and belligerent drunk, but one of my outbursts in this video shocked even me. Jessica handles herself slightly better than I do, but not by much.

'The Woman in Black 2' movie review

The Woman in Black 2Reviewed by Jesse Miller
MoreHorror.com

Synopsis: 40 years after the first haunting at Eel Marsh House, a group of children evacuated from WWII London arrive, awakening the house's darkest inhabitant.

Director: Tom Harper
Writer: Jon Croker
Actors: Helen McCrory, Phoebe Fox.

When I heard The Woman in Black: Angel of Death was being made, I was instantly curious. How could you continue this particular story while managing to keep the scares fresh and the story exciting? There's always the case that the sequel wouldn't live up to the original, yeah, but I was just curious as to where they would take this tormented lady in black.

Well, what I got left me with a shrug -- The Woman in Black 2 has terrific cinematography, striking set design and solid acting from all involved - and even the setting and premise of this story show promise - but unfortunately, this film doesn't deliver on that promise.

The problem with this sequel is that it's by all means a competently made flick and it definitely excels in terms of atmosphere and acting, it's just doesn’t do anything particularly scary or interesting. The backdrop of the London Blitz and how this affects the characters is the most interesting about it but the film doesn’t really take advantage of this and use it to accentuate the horror.

Rather than take the ghost story into a territory where I can feel the urgency and fear, the film prefers to recycle old horror clichés and scares from the original film. Really though, the scariest thing in this film is the atmosphere of that old house and its design, not the vengeful spirit that haunts those wall.

The Exorcist (1973) review

The Exorcist 1973 PosterReviewed by Grace Fontaine
MoreHorror.com

Hellish Father, I entreat you hear my confession- I saw 'The Exorcist' when I was 23 years young. After I had seen so many other horror films, I had become desensitized to cinema and genre. Consequently, upon first viewing Friedkin's acclaimed adaptation of William Peter Blatty's novel, while I certainly did feel it was worth a watch (as opposed to the supposedly "OMGAWESOME" 'Friday the 13th' which I felt was an over-bloated, badly-realised piece of sh--) I just didn't see WHY WHY WHY 'The Exorcist' had been bestowed with the reputation as one of the most important horror films ever. Obviously, back when it was made it frightened many of the bums in seats, but these days, unless you have the constitution of cheap toilet paper or if you are a religion nut, it's not that mind-blowing or spiritually confrontational upfront.

However.

That doesn't mean I cannot appreciate the goods this movie offers, and believe me, there are many of them.

Upon watching it again recently, I found that this film's disturbing factor was more effective when it was subtle as opposed to in-your-face. Okay, sure, those possession scenes were crowd pleasers, but what appealed to me the most was this is a film that without the demonic possession was still quite eerie. An example? The scene that made me the most squeamish was when little Regan was being tested in the hospital. You can masturbate with a crucifix, walk backwards downstairs and turn your head 360 degrees as much as you like, but those are nothing compared to seeing a child being subjected to all of these invasive medical procedures only to yield no result. To me, due to it's realism, that entire sequence made me the most uncomfortable. Additionally, seeing Ellen Burnstyn's Chris McNeal having to watch her daughter being poked and prodded gives it all that much more of an impact. And this is before Pazuzu starts to bring out the nukes.

GEHENNA: An Indie Horror Film (with Practical Effects) that Matters

Gehenna Widget ImageAt MoreHorror.com, we see a lot of horror films seeking funding through Kickstarter. Here’s one that caught our eye. We think this is a film that actually matters to the horror community.

Hiroshi Katagiri is the mind behind “Gehenna: Where Death Lives”. Hiroshi has had a stellar career in makeup and special effects, and is known especially for sculpture, which is the art that “creates the creature”. He’s done three films with Spielberg, worked on multiple films with Guillermo del Toro, and his 39 film credits also include Wolverine, Pirates of the Caribbean, Alien v Predator Requiem, Cabin in the Woods, and The Hunger Games. His TV credits include being part of an Emmy winning team for The X-Files. He is also a true fan of horror and suspense, and has written and directed several acclaimed horror shorts.

But what caught our eye was his view on horror. To Hiroshi, it’s not JUST about the blood or JUST about the special effects. A good horror movie, like a good movie in any other genre – he says - has to have a solid story behind the spectacle, with believable characters, the building of suspense, and predicaments that keep getting worse. Amen to that.

On his Kickstarter page, Hiroshi explains what makes a film truly scary, and part of it is what we accept as traditional horror but done well, and part of it is more like Hitchcock’s theory about “what you DON’T see”. We need this in today’s horror landscape, and this is the essence of “Gehenna”. What’s the plot, you ask? It draws on some recent human history filled with real-life horror, and it IS revealed on the Kickstarter page, which is here: http://kck.st/1BQw9PM. (Doug Jones is aboard, the makeup and effects guys committed to the project reads like an All-Star team, and best part – it’s almost all Practical Effects.)

'The Burning Dead' (2015) Review

The Burning Dead Small DVD CoverReviewed by Grace Fontaine
MoreHorror.com

I'm not the first little demoness to admit that I dig Danny Trejo as the exploitation hero he has styled himself to be. The man makes me smile every time he pops up like the be-scarred BAMF he is. More than half of the movies I have watched have featured his divine presence in one way or another, and whenever Danny Trejo appears on screen, I know I am gonna have a bloody good day.

Well. Most days.

The Burning Dead is pretty awful. Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it's the WORST MOVIE EVER because that would imply a false idea that I haven't seen a lot of bad movies, but man... this movie had a bombastic yet simple as bread and butter concept that can drag in the hungry B or C movie masses. A volcano triggers a natural disaster and zombies emerge from the magma to create havoc.

The combination of two types of schlock cinema could have been a deliciously over the top and hilarious good time, but The Burning Dead only barely managed to rouse a tickled corner of my mouth to raise and not much else. I'm not going to lie to you my dear reader and say this movie is great or even mildly entertaining. Were it not for the presence of Saint Trejo, this movie is a load of steaming, smoldering garbage that forces you to inhale it's wicked toxic plumes.
