If you think you’ve seen every horror film set in a cabin in the woods, then you’re probably right. But, have you seen a horror film set in a cabin at the end of the world? Probably not. FilmNation has acquired the rights to a film that focuses on just that and it’s terrifically called The Cabin at the End of the World.
Based on the 2018 novel from Paul Tremblay, the story follows a family tormented by a group of strangers who may – or may not – be trying to avert the apocalypse. It’s a baffling concept, but we’re intrigued to see how the family fight a group who are supposedly trying the stop the end of the world.
I think I may have to read the book to find out more.
Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman will be adapting the novel, but a director is not yet tied to the project. Keep an eye out for more as it comes.
Riding high following the mighty success of The Shape of Water, horror regular Doug Jones stars in Gehenna: Where Death Lives, which hits cinemas and On Demand next month. Ahead of the release comes this pretty freaky trailer.

The debut directorial feature from celebrated visual effects artist Hiroshi Katagiri (Pacific Rim, The Hunger Games, Escape From L.A.), the film stars not one but three genre veterans, with Jones starring alongside the great Lance Henriksen (Aliens, Near Dark) and Patrick Gorman, who appeared in 1976 slasher Alice Sweet Alice, as well as a handful of other cult horror flicks.
Here’s the press release write-up:
“Encompassing horror, suspense and a twist that will blow your mind, Gehenna fixes on five people who enter a hidden bunker from WW2, and realize it’s way more than a bunker. Some fates are MUCH worse than death.”
Gehenna also stars Eva Swan, Simon Phillips and Justin Gordon. It lands in US cinemas and on digital on May 4th, from Uncork’d Entertainment.
He won our hearts as the crawlspace-dwelling Roach in Wes Craven’s The People Under the Stairs and, despite a long and busy acting career since, Sean Whalen will, for horror fans, always be associated with the character. With more recent genre roles in Hatchet III, The Axe Murders of Villisca and Death House, the cult actor is now the latest name to be added to Rob Zombie’s 3 From Hell.
The sequel to The Devil’s Rejects we never thought we’d see already has an insanely cool supporting cast of genre faves, including Jeff Daniel Phillips, Danny Trejo, Dee Wallace, Austin Stoker and Clint Howard, who plays a clown named Mr. Baggy Britches. It will mark the second time Whalen has worked with Zombie, after appearing in 2009’s Halloween II.
Sid Haig, Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie lead the film as respectively, Captain Spaulding, Otis and Baby, the psychotic Firefly family members last seen driving into a hail of gunfire to the sounds of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Freebird. 3 From Hell’s title has led many to assume something of a supernatural bent, and the three sadistic sickos returning from the grave.
Filming has just commenced on The Room, a Monkey’s Paw-type horror thriller from Renaissance director Christian Volckman and not, as you may be forgiven for thinking, a remake of Tommy Wiseau’s cinematic landmark of the same name.
Volckman also co-wrote the film with Eric Forestier and Vincent Ravalec. It stars Olga Kurylenko (Seven Psychopaths, Centurion) and Kevin Janssens (pictured in the upcoming Revenge), and is a co-production of Hildegarde, Versus Production and Bidibul.
Read on for the official synopsis, which ends on a truly intriguing note…
“Kate and Matt are a young couple in their thirties in search of a more authentic and healthy life. They leave the City to move into an old house in the middle of nowhere. Soon they discover a secret hidden room that has the extraordinary power to materialize anything they wish for. Their new life becomes a true fairytale. They spend days and nights indulging their every desire of material possession, swimming in money and champagne. Yet beneath this apparent state of bliss, something darker lurks: some wishes can have dire consequences. That Room could very well turn their dream into a nightmare when it gives them what they’ve been waiting forever and that nature was denying them…”
The OC’s Mischa Barton stars in bloodthirsty thriller Painkillers, which sits within a handful of upcoming horror flicks on her CV. Below is a set of new stills for the film, which premiered this last week at the Brussels International Fantastic Films Festival.
Roxy Shih – whose 2016 feature debut The Tribe won multiple festival awards – directed Painkillers from a script by Starry Eyes/Fear Inc. producer Giles Daoust. KEW Media is handling sales on the film, which hails from Title Media and Lone Suspect.
“After a terrible car crash in which his son dies, brilliant surgeon John Clarke, tormented by guilt, becomes prey to an unbearable physical pain. While his marriage starts disintegrating, John soon finds out that the only thing that can ease his pain is the taste of human blood. When he encounters Herb Morris, a man who claims he can help him get his life back, John embarks upon a nightmarish journey through which he will either have to come to terms with his pain… or become a monster.”
Barton stars alongside Adam Huss (TV’s Power), Madeline Zima (Californication, The Collector), Grant Bowler (True Blood, Killer Elite) and horror regular Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes, Southbound, I Spit on Your Grave: Deja Vu).
The ever-growing wealth divide in modern Britain provides the inspiration for Joe Martin’s Us and Them, which sees a downtrodden youth attempting to ignite a revolution by staging cyber attacks on the rich and powerful. As his anger increases however, so too do the risks he takes.
The film garnered positive responses from its festival run last year which began with its premiere at SXSW. Audiences can now see the film at home, as it has just been released on Digital and On Demand via iTunes.
Jack (son of Tim) Roth stars, as “…an ordinary working-class kid who is tired of the rough deal he faces. His plan? To start a revolution by streaming attacks against the one percent on the web. His goal? To terrify the elite into bringing about chance. His plan spirals out of control when he holds a banker and his family hostage and forces them to gamble for their lives.”
Us and Them also stars Sophie Colquhoun (Captain America: The First Avenger), Tim Bentinck, Carolyn Backhouse, Andrew Tieran (300, Mr. Nice) and Louis Dempsey (Grabbers).
If you’ve been eagerly awaiting a season 2 of Outcast, then you will be please to know that it’s FINALLY on the way. After two years since season 1, Outcast season 2 will premiere on Cinemax on 20th July 2018, so you have only until the summer to wait.
In the second season of Outcast, the exploration and mystery of what lies behind the supernatural manifestations and why they are drawn to Kyle Barnes continues. As the possessions that have plagued him grow in scope and number, Kyle struggles to protect those he holds most dear. At his side are Reverend Anderson and Chief Giles, while his sister Megan grapples with her own demons. But otherworldly threats prove greater than Kyle could ever have anticipated. His struggle will grow into a fight for all of Rome, as he discovers the haunting secrets of his own past.
We thought Outcast was a complex and chilling thrill-ride, so we’re excited to see what supernatural occurrences stalk Kyle in the new season.
Check out the trailer below and be sure to continue watching Outcast from 20th July.

Hot off the heels of directing this year’s horror smash A Quiet Place, John Krasinski is sticking with the same genre and directing the sci-fi Life on Mars next. The film will adapt the short story written by Cecil Castellucci called We Have Always Lived on Mars, but there is no screenwriter attached to the project yet.
Krasinski will probably not star in this one, but he is also on-board as a producer.
The short story follows a woman who discovers that she can breathe on Mars. The woman is one of a few descendants of an abandoned Martian colony, so the news gives her and her colony hope for a brighter future.
If you’re unsure of how Mary Shelley came up with the idea of her classic novel Frankenstein, then this new trailer for Mary Shelley will give you a bit of an insight.
MARY SHELLEY Official Trailer #1 (2018) Elle Fanning Frankenstein Novel Drama Movie HD - YouTube
Mary Shelley will trace the events that lead to the author writing Frankenstein, combining how she learned that humans could be monstrous and the idea of corpse reanimation. The trailer is a bit of an odd one. The film doesn’t seem to be stepping too far away from the idea of a clichéd romantic period drama and, instead, feels derivative.
Hopefully the story of Mary Shelley will be enough to craft an entertaining feature and if the critic quotes are to be believed, it’s a raw and timely feminist piece of film-making.
I suppose we’ll save our judgement.
Mary Shelley stars Elle Fanning in the title role, as well as Douglas Booth as Percy Bysshe Shelley, Bel Powley as Claire Clairmont, Ben Hardy as John William Polidori, and Tom Sturridge as Lord Byron.
