First Look: ‘Penny Dreadful’

This is the most promising trailer I’ve seen in a very long time, and I’m beside myself waiting for this delicious mashup of the setting and time period that created “Frankenstein,” “Dracula,” and “The Picture of Dorian Grey.”

“Penny Dreadful” is set to premiere on Showtime May 11, and stars Eva Green, Timothy Dalton and Josh Hartnett. The teaser trailers so far have been very dark and disturbing, and some are already dubbing this the British version of “American Horror Story.” But after the campy “Coven” of this season, this looks to be a much fiercer and horrific beast.

And I mean that in the very best way.

Check out the video trailer for a little taste of this new thriller.

First Look: ‘Nurse 3D’

Sigh. I try not be the old fuddy duddy, but as a career nurse, I can’t help but ask… really? REALLY? Dear men of the world: I can assure you there is nothing — and I mean NOTHING — sexy about being a nurse. But hey, you won’t believe me anyway, so here it is guys:

What started as a friendship became an obsession.

Lionsgate has just released a brand new TV spot for their upcoming thriller “Nurse 3D.” See how the “smoldering” Abbey Russell lures fellow nurse Danni into her plot to seek revenge on cheating men. (Oh, you dirty, dirty men!) However, when Danni starts to suspect Abby’s devious actions, Abby must find a way to outsmart her long enough to bring the cheater you’d least expect to justice. Directed by Doug Aarniokoski, written by David Loughery, and starring Paz de la Huerta, Katrina Bowden and Corbin Bleu, this sexy horror film will make your temperature rise. Check out the brand new TV spot below:

Lionsgate will release NURSE 3D in Select Theaters and On Demand February 7, 2014.

First look: Dark Touch trailer

DarkTouch

The new face of little girls gone bad? See the new trailer for the film “Dark Touch.”

Independent filmmakers + moody horror = creepy, innovative films courtesy of IFC midnight.

Their latest release, “Dark Touch,” opens in theaters September 27, as well as being available on video on demand, SundanceNow and iTunes. The film was an official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival and was directed by French filmmaker Marina De Van, whose previous film credits include “In My Skin.”

In “Dark Touch,” 11-year-old Neve lives in a remote Irish town, and finds herself as the sole survivor of a family massacre that kills her parents and younger brother. The police want to blame it on homicidal vandals. They ignore the young girl’s insistence that is something much darker that killed her family. Something about the house itself.

The trailer also reveals the girl claims that bad things happen when she cries. This looks like it could be a younger, darker version of the popular book and movie “Carrie,” but where “Carrie” played on teen angst at being the outsider, this film looks like it’s going more for supernatural horror in the form of a little girl whose tears can kill.

Or at least that’s what it looks like to me. What do you think?
