“That’s a pretty fucked up story.”

Now that IFC Midnight has acquired Colin Minihan‘s festival hit What Keeps You Alive, the film will be heading to this weekend’s Overlook Film Festival.

Hannah Emily Anderson and Brittany Allen, who both appeared in Lionsgate’s Jigsaw, star in the thriller as a female married couple pitted against one another during their one year anniversary.

In this exclusive clip, Allen shares an anecdote about her first hunting trip with her father, in which she was asked to shoot a bear. While seemingly an innocent coming-of-age story, it’s layered with ominous foreshadowing that builds tension so thick you could cut it with a knife… her hunting knife.

Trace Thurman reviewed the film out of the fest and declared it “a tense and darkly humorous tale of betrayal.”

Allen, of course, also starred in Minihan’s zombie pic It Stains The Sands Red. Minihan is also the filmmaker behind Grave Encounters, Extraterrestrial and Still/Born.

Lunar Pictures and Australia-based Bronte Pictures shared a new trailer for their supernatural horror thriller The School, directed by award-winning Australian writer/director Storm Ashwood.

The School follows Amy, an attractive, successful surgeon, who struggles to cope with her emergency room duties and those of a young mother looking after her hospitalized son who has fallen into a coma. After being reprimanded by her boss, Dr. Wang, for obsessively believing her son will wake up, she becomes trapped in a coma/purgatory of her own – The School – where children from her past emerge to taunt and test her to her core, putting in doubt whether Amy will be able to save her son and leave The School.

Click the image to watch the trailer on Vimeo:

The School was filmed at the Gladesville Mental Asylum, which was founded in the late 1830’s, making it the oldest asylum in Australia. Unfortunately, the cruel and unusual punishment of its patients was a normality there, including the use of electric shock therapy and both patient and employee deaths were common. There are 1,228 unmarked patient graves on-site providing an unsettling location to capture the supernatural horror elements in the film.

Megan Drury, Nicholas Hope, and Jack Ruwald star.

Blake Northfield and Jim Robison are producers on The School, and Phil Hunt and Compton Ross at Headgear Films (Black Mass) are executive producers. Earlier this year, international sales company Cinema Management Group (CMG) acquired worldwide sales rights, excluding Australia and New Zealand.

Thanks to Fabien M. for sending in.

If you caught Sarah Bolger in Emelie (here’s our review) you’d never let her near your kids or hamster again.  She is set to take on another mothering role in the upcoming A Good Woman is Hard to Find.

Bloody Disgusting has the first ever image from Road Games director Abner Pastoll‘s next feature, which was filmed last year in Northern Ireland and Belgium with the production company behind Raw!

“The film follows a young mother (Bolger) trying to protect her kids while investigating the truth behind her husband’s murder.”

Edward Hogg (“Taboo”), Andrew Simpson (“Notes on a Scandal”), Jane Brennan(“Brooklyn”), Packy Lee (“Peaky Blinders”), Caolan Byrne (“The Foreigner”), and Josh Bolt(“Nowhere Boy”) also star.

Academy Award nominee and BAFTA winner Ronan Blaney (“Booglaoo and Graham”) wrote the script for the film, which is set in Belfast and will be released next year.

Here’s the long synopsis of the film that’s currently prepping for a festival run.

“Sarah is a recently widowed young mother. Her son Ben has been an elective mute since the day he witnessed his father being knifed to death on their estate. Police have done nothing to catch the killer, categorizing his death as a falling out amongst thieves. Then Tito literally bursts into Sarah’s world. He’s ripped off drug-dealers and decides to stash the stolen drugs in her flat. Frightened senseless, Sarah wants nothing to do with this but caught between a rock and a hard place, she sees an opportunity to use Tito to gain information about what might have happened to her husband with the hope of eventually returning to some semblance of a normal life.”

Set up as a British-Belgian co-pro, A Good Woman Is Hard to Find is produced by The Host’s Junyoung Jang at London-based February Films with Guillaume Benski at Paris-based Superbe Films (Road Games) and Jean-Yves Roubin at Liège-based Frakas Productions (RAW).

Exec producers are Jan Pace and James Atherton of QuickFire, Billy Acumen of BA Entertainment and JBG Pictures and with regional support from Wallimage in Belgium and Northern Ireland Screen in the UK.

If it were to be announced today, a feature film adaptation of the Doom video game franchise starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson probably would be a huge source of excitement, with the film almost guaranteed to be a hit at the box office. Back in 2005, however, a Johnson-starring adaptation was both critically panned (19% on Rotten Tomatoes… ouch) while also being a big time box office flop, with the film only nabbing $55 million worldwide on a $60 million production budget.

Johnson himself even recently took a jab at the epic flop, calling it a “stinker”.

So will we ever see Doom back on the screen? Well, actress Nina Bergman (Assassin X) just posted a series of interesting tweets this week, revealing that Universal is prepping a new adaptation of Doom that Bergman will be starring in!

The actress tweeted, “Wow I’m doing the next “Doom” movie w/Universal Pictures! I just signed all the paperwork. I get to go back to Bulgaria again and work with some of my favorite people. This movie w/a super cool Director AND my new record coming out, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world.”

In a subsequent tweet, Bergman said that the new adaptation will be superior to the 2005 film, as it has a “much better script.”

At this time, no official announcement about a new Doom movie has been made, but we’ve reached out to Universal for comment. So stay tuned for more as we learn it.

The first thing we ever heard about this year’s Halloween, a sequel to John Carpenter‘s original, was that Carpenter was on board as executive producer and creative consultant, which immediately made the film an exciting prospect. After all, having Carpenter back in Haddonfield, alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, was a huge win right off the bat.

It was also said, at the time, that Carpenter *might* end up scoring the new film, just as he did the original classic. This week, Jason Blum has confirmed that he indeed is.

Over on Twitter last night, Blum responded with a definitive “Confirm!” when asked to confirm or deny that Carpenter will be providing the score for the new installment!

Confirm!

— Jason Blum (@jason_blum) April 19, 2018

In the film, directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride

“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter, while Andi Matichak landed the coveted role of the film’s young lead (daughter to Greer and granddaughter to Curtis).

Nick Castle will return to the role of Michael Myers, while stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers.

The cast also includes Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Project Almanac, Marvel’s “Runaways”), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle, My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound, Laggies, When We Rise), and Drew Scheid (“Stranger Things”, The War with Grandpa). They will be playing the friends of Matichak’s Allyson.

Michael returns home in exactly six months, on October 19, 2018.

Setting itself apart from the other films in the franchise, director Don Michael Paul’s Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell is primarily set in the arctic tundra, a unique new setting for our latest dose of Graboid mayhem. And why wait to begin the fun?!

Our friends at Syfy Wire just got their hands on the first clip from Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell, ahead of its release in a couple weeks. We shall call it… Graboids on Ice!

Exclusive Sneak Peek: Tremors: A Cold Day In Hell | SYFY WIRE - YouTube

In the new film, Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) and his son Travis Welker (Jamie Kennedy) find themselves up to their ears in Graboids and Ass-Blasters when they head to Canada to investigate a series of deadly giant-worm attacks. Arriving at a remote research facility in the artic tundra, Burt begins to suspect that Graboids are secretly being weaponized, but before he can prove his theory, he is sidelined by Graboid venom. With just 48 hours to live, the only hope is to create an antidote from fresh venom — but to do that, someone will have to figure out how to milk a Graboid!”

A Cold Day in Hell will be released on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD on May 1.

“There are a lot of people who love [watching scary movies], and they’re gonna love this movie.”

Halloween may be several months away but today was all about Halloween, as the official poster (below) for this year’s sequel to John Carpenter’s classic film dominated the horror conversation all day long. And even star Jamie Lee Curtis herself has gotten in on that conversation, revealing to Yahoo that what she’s seen is looking terrifying!

I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying,” Curtis told the site. “They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”

Curtis also shared her idea for what the title of the movie should’ve been…

“There was the idea of, ‘What do you call it?’ If I had had my druthers, I probably would’ve called it Halloween Retold. Because it’s being retold. It’s the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter.”

I don’t know, Halloween: Full-Tilt Boogeyman sounds pretty great to me!

Produced on a modest budget and set in a zombie-infested Southern Australia, the heart-wrenching short film Cargo was kind of a big deal when it first hit the internet a few years back. Naturally, there was interest in adapting the short into a feature film, so the directing duo of Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke eventually returned with an updated version of their poignant undead drama, once again titled Cargo.

Starring the ever-charismatic Martin Freeman, Cargo tells the story of an unfortunate father tasked with keeping his young daughter safe in the post-apocalyptic Australian wilds after his wife succumbs to a zombie virus, biting him in the process. Driven only by his love for his daughter, Andy must journey through the wasteland in the hopes of securing a better future for his child before he inevitably joins the ranks of the undead.

Like the original short, this is an extremely versatile premise, allowing for hard-hitting dramatic moments as well as traditional zombie thrills without losing sight of the underlying human element. However, those familiar with the source material will likely become frustrated with some of the new additions to the story (especially a few unnecessary characters), which can at times make the experience downright boring.

Luckily, Freeman brings a lot to the table with his compelling portrayal of Andy, turning him into more than just a tragic father figure, and becoming a fully realized character that’s easy to root for. The accompanying cast also does a decent job, but the script obviously favors Andy’s development, with some minor characters feeling like an afterthought. That being said, the most important character here might actually be Cargo’s interpretation of the Australian countryside itself.

Despite what couldn’t have been a very large budget, the scenic locations and cinematography enhance the scope of the film, making up for a few moments of questionable production value. The blistering heat and desert-like landscape really help sell Andy’s desperation to a point that, had it been set anywhere else, the film would have been way less interesting. This is why, at least visually, Cargo is more than worth the price of admission if you can stomach a few instances of fake-looking zombie make up and gore effects.

It’s unfortunate that the script isn’t as polished as the visuals, with the film feeling more like an artificially extended version of the short rather than a proper feature. Even with the movie’s relatively brief runtime, several scenes feel like unnecessarily-long filler, and many of the sub-plots aren’t given the same attention as the rest of the story.

Ultimately, Cargo isn’t quite the same emotional roller-coaster as its predecessor, but it’s still a satisfying experience. The use of Aboriginal folklore added an interesting new element to the story, and the main narrative’s conclusion still packs a punch, even if it’s less impactful this time around. While there are certainly better zombie flicks out there, Cargo is still worth a watch.

Cargo will be available on Netflix on May 18th!

“If I ever get the chance to make a science fiction movie, I want those guys to come in peace,” Spielberg recalls thinking as a child, looking up to the skies with his father.

Originally announced last year, AMC’s “Visionaries” series will provide multi-part looks at the histories of specific genres, and first up in the series is “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction,” which will be premiering on the network April 30 at 10/9c.

EW got their hands on a clip this week, wherein Cameron and Steven Spielberg talk Close Encounters of the Third Kind, specifically the childhood memories that inspired it.

“From the acclaimed filmmaker behind legendary sci-fi films The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Avatar, this documentary series explores the evolution of sci-fi from its origins as a small genre with a cult following to the blockbuster pop-cultural phenomenon we know today.”

“In each episode, James Cameron introduces one of the “Big Questions” that humankind has contemplated throughout the ages and reaches back into sci-fi’s past to better understand how our favorite films, TV shows, books, and video games were born. Cameron and his contemporaries – Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Christopher Nolan and many more who have helped fuel sci-fi’s spectacular growth over the last several decades – debate the merits, meanings, and impacts of the films and novels that influenced them and discuss where the genre — and our species — might be going in the future.”
