This Is It… Full Trailer For Dexter: The Final Season Arrives!
6 hours ago
As the ads have been promising, “The End Begins June 30th,” and that’s when Showtime begins unveiling brand new episodes for the 8th and final season of their hit series Dexter. We’ve gotten little glimpses of what this final season will hold in store, but now the network has just revealed a full length trailer and it looks pretty epic. For me personally, I’m intrigued to see how the events of Season 7 will effect Deb (Jennifer Carpenter). While the show is obviously about the title character, it’s been amazing to watch the overall arc of the Deb character over the course of the last 8 years. Did Dexter destroy the one good thing in his life? Can’t wait to see how this all pans out!

International Trailer for Patrick Remake!
6 hours ago
As someone who loves the Psycho movies, I have a tremendous amount of respect for filmmaker Richard Franklin who had the daunting task of helming a sequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s most famous movie. But you need look no further than the opening scene of his 1978 feature debut Patrick, which depicts the title character murdering his mother & her lover to understand why he was the perfect choice for Psycho II. And while word of any remake is often met with much skepticism, knowing that the redux of Patrick was going to be the first narrative feature from Mark Hartley, the fellow behind the excellent documentaries Not Quite Hollywood and Machete Maidens Unleashed piqued my interest. Now, we’ve got the first look at footage from the final flick. Below is the international trailer for Patrick, the story of a young nurse (Sharni Vinson from You’Re Next!) who becomes the »

Full Preview of Stephen King’s Under The Dome TV Series
6 hours ago
I confess… I bought Stephen King’s epic novel for Under The Dome shortly after it came out and I haven’t had the courage to tackle it quite yet. I mean, there it is on my book shelf, staring back at me, just daring me to devote all my time and energy into tackling all 1088 pages… and I just haven’t done it. It’s hard enough finding the time for all the television I want to catch up on! A-ha! And now CBS has adapted and is premiering the TV series version based upon King’s book on June 24th. Below you’ll fin a pretty cool 2 and a half minute preview of what we can expect. Oh and did I mention the mighty Jeff Fahey is one of the leads of this sucker? Awe yeah…

Fright Exclusive Interview With Pieta Director Kim Ki-Duk!!
9 hours ago
Korean filmmaker Kim Ki-Duk is widely known for his shifts in tone between films, with each of his movies being extremely different from the previous ones. Ranging from 2000′s The Isle, a violent film featuring some pretty intense images, to the 2005 romantic drama The Bow, Ki-Duk has created a name for himself as a filmmaker who isn’t afraid to break out of what he’s known for.
His most recent film, Pieta (review soon), is an intense look at a character’s lack of humanity and love for money, as he responds violently to others and even finding himself along the way. If you’re a fan of Korean revenge films or just amazing foreign films in general, you should definitely check it out, it’s pretty awesome. We were lucky enough to chat with Ki-Duk recently, and he had some interesting things to say. Read on!!

Those obsolete spools contain more than just magnetic tape. They are imprinted with the very soul of evil.

I, Frankenstein Strikes A Pose In Debut Motion Poster!
14 May 2013 10:59 AM, PDT
After some serious release date shuffles, Lionsgate has finally chosen January 14th, 2014 as the official nationwide opening for I, Frankenstein! Based on Kevin Grevioux’s (the giant lycan Raze from Underworld) graphic novel, Aaron Eckhart stars as the titular monster who is caught in a war between gargoyles & demons. We’ve got a motion poster below which sports the first official look at the film below.
So, basically it’s Underworld with Frankenstein in place of Kate Beckinsale’s Selena. No surprise since it’s from the producers of the franchise (I smell a potential crossover?); I guess I can dig it. January seems to be a coveted spot of genre films for Lionsgate since Texas Chainsaw 3D had a $21 million opening earlier this year.
Have you read the graphic novel? Looking forward to the film? Let us know in the comments!

Biggest Wtf News of the Week: Arnold Schwarzenegger In Talks to Star in The Toxic Avenger Remake!!
13 May 2013 6:57 PM, PDT
Leave it up to the folks at Variety for making today one of the weirdest ones in a long time, with this piece of news. According to them, Arnold Effin Schwarzenegger is in talks to star in director Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine)’s upcoming remake of Troma’s 1984 bad taste extravaganza The Toxic Avenger.
The original film revolved around Melvin Ferd III, a nerdy janitor that is turned into The Toxic Avenger, after he’s accidentally exposed to radioactive waste. Not sure what to make of this, but news is that Arnold won’t be playing Toxie, but instead, an undisclosed lead role. The last thing that I heard before this, was that the remake would be a PG-13 action comedy, and with Arnold on board now, the story just gets crazier and crazier. What do you think?

Beyond Fright: First Look at Dane Dehaan in Metallica Through The Never!!
13 May 2013 11:50 AM, PDT
Today, the first still from the Nimrod Antal (Vacancy, Predators) helmed Metallica Through The Never surfaced, featuring the next Harry Osborne himself, Dane Dehaan (Chronicle, The Place Beyond The Pines) as “Trip”. The film sounds as weirdly awesome as it gets, as it’s one part 3-D concert, another part narrative film, the project sounds interesting to say the least.
“Starring Metallica, a cast of thousands of their fans and breakout star Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, The Amazing Spider-Man 2), Metallica Through The Never is written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Nimrod Antal (Predators, Kontroll) and produced by former IMAX film producer Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth). The film marries groundbreaking footage and editing techniques with a compelling narrative, in which a band crew member (played by DeHaan) is sent out on a mission during Metallica’s roaring live set in front of a sold-out arena. While on this mission, »
Movie Review: Alyce Kills!!
13 May 2013 10:48 AM, PDT
Psychological “thrillers” are a hard sell. They can either go for a straight forward route, or try to give viewers a more stylized approach, running the risk of putting the focus too much on being “artsy”, and not enough on character development. Unfortunately for Alyce Kills, that is exactly what happens.
Alyce Kills revolves around, well…Alyce (Jade Dornfeld), a young woman who works a job that she’s treated badly at, and lives alone. After a night of some heavy partying, Alyce, along with her best friend Carroll (Tamara Feldman, Hatchet), decides to try ecstasy and get crazy for the night. While very high, the two best friends head to the top of the building that Alyce lives in, and in a drug induced haze, Alyce accidentally pushes Carroll off of the ledge, seemingly killing her.
