Movies that go underground make me claustrophobic, and there seems to be an awful lot of them lately. “The Pyramid” throws in some Egyptian mythology and old-fashioned curses to up the ante, with results that look pretty scary, at least in the trailer.
The ancient wonders of the world have long cursed explorers who’ve dared to uncover their secrets. But a team of U.S. archaeologists gets more than they bargained for when they discover a lost pyramid unlike any other in the Egyptian desert. As they unlock the horrific secrets buried within, they realize they aren’t just trapped, they are being hunted.
The film is scheduled for a December 5th release and check out the first official trailer below! What do you think? Will it be scary?
It seems this particular group of young adults in this new trailer for “Exists” accidentally selected the Bigfoot option for their run in at the classic (overused) “cabin in the woods” horror film scenario. And it seems instead of “going ‘Squatching,” Sasquatch is hunting them.
The film documents five friends on a camping weekend in the remote woods of East Texas, who find themselves struggling to survive against a legendary predator that is stronger, smarter, and more terrifying than anything they would have ever believed exists.
Let me guess: we can expect lots of sex, gratuitous language and gore, all filmed by the people experiencing it in another “found footage” film. Although, to be fair, this film is brought to you by Eduardo Sánchez, who directed “The Blair Witch Project,” the grandaddy of them all. So if anyone should be allowed to use the ploy, he should. And the film was an audience award winner at SXSW, so it could be quite promising.
But having said that, does no one watch “Evil Dead” before going off to a remote cabin in the woods? No cell phones, no neighbors, no chaperones is just a bad idea. And we won’t even get into having sex in a horror movie. That’s just begging for a gruesome death by monsters or supernatural forces, y’all.
Earth as we know it is gone. A virus has destroyed the planet and rendered all its women infertile, all but one. An elite team of soldiers are tasked with bringing the woman to safety on the newly habitable Earth Two. But when they are forced underground they find themselves fighting for survival from an bloodthirsty creature in a maze of ever shrinking tunnels. As the team’s ranks start to dwindle, the tunnels shrink and the ammunition run out, the crawl for survival becomes more and more desperate.
I don’t know about you, but I get claustrophobic when I see someone put in the trunk of a car in a movie. I think I’d rather someone just kill me than that, and don’t even get me started when I see someone buried alive. So for me, and all the other small space challenged like me, this is going to be one nightmare of a movie.
I hope this girl in “Crawl or Die” was paid well to crawl into those spaces, as well as the camera crew. Check out the trailer below, and a special nod to the female power behind this film, as Nicole Alonso is also a producer of the film.
FX has released several super short teasers for their upcoming horror series, “The Strain,” but we finally got a full 30 second trailers showing some clips of the show itself.
“The Strain” is a 13-episode series from Academy Award nominated filmmaker Guillermo del Toro, author Chuck Hogan and writer/producer Carlton Cuse, which is based on the best-selling vampire novel trilogy of the same title written by del Toro and Hogan. The teasers and this trailer look pretty creepy already, but with the resume of creative talent on this one, plus the groundbreaking reputation of FX for great, edgy TV, this is bound to be a winner. Both Cuse and del Toro had plenty of good things to say so far about their collaboration with the network.
“‘The Strain’ books are near and dear to my heart and now, Chuck and I have the blessing of a partnership with Carlton and FX that holds great promise,” said del Toro. “Working with FX has yielded an amazing experience with total creative freedom and support.”
“Working with visionary filmmaker Guillermo del Toro and the team at FX has been a dream come true for me,” said Cuse. “Guillermo’s epic, cinematic pilot for ‘The Strain’ starts a chilling and compelling story that will upend everything you thought you knew about vampires.”
The series is a high concept thriller that tells the story of Dr. Ephraim Goodweather (Corey Stoll), the head of the Center for Disease Control Canary Team in New York City. He and his team are called upon to investigate a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team, and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers, wage war for the fate of humanity itself.
Rounding out the cast are Mia Maestro, Sean Astin, Kevin Durand, Natalie Brown, Jonathan Hyde, Richard Sammel, Robert Maillet, Jack Kesy, Ben Hyland, and Miguel Gomez.
Emmy Award winning Writer and Producer Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) will serve as Executive Producer/showrunner and writer. Gary Ungar will also serve as Executive Producer. The series premieres July 13, but stay tuned here for more news and trailers as the network releases them.
A secret from the past. A curse from the grave.
