First Look: ‘Oculus’ trailer and selfie app

Ten years ago, tragedy struck the Russell family, leaving the lives of teenage siblings Tim and Kaylie forever changed when Tim was convicted of the brutal murder of their parents. Now in his 20s, Tim is newly released from protective custody and only wants to move on with his life; but Kaylie, still haunted by that fateful night, is convinced her parents’ deaths were caused by something else altogether: a malevolent supernatural force—unleashed through the Lasser Glass, an antique mirror in their childhood home. Determined to prove Tim’s innocence, Kaylie tracks down the mirror, only to learn similar deaths have befallen previous owners over the past century.  With the mysterious entity now back in their hands, Tim and Kaylie soon find their hold on reality shattered by terrifying hallucinations, and realize, too late, that their childhood nightmare is beginning again…

Written and directed by Mike Flanagan, “Oculus” first premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and stars Karen Gillan, Brenton Thwaites, Rory Cochrane and Katee Sackhoff. The film hits theaters nationwide on April 11th.

First Look: ‘Devil’s Due’ trailer and image


A Christmas miracle has arrived early for Horror fans…

 20th Century Fox has just released a chilling new “Silent Night” video for their upcoming film, “Devil’s Due,” starring Allison Miller and Zach Gilford. The film is set for a January 17th, 2014 release.
After a mysterious, lost night on their honeymoon, a newlywed couple finds themselves dealing with an earlier-than-planned pregnancy. While recording everything for posterity, the husband begins to notice odd behavior in his wife that they initially write off to nerves, but, as the months pass, it becomes evident that the dark changes to her body and mind have a much more sinister origin.


First look: Dark Touch trailer


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?

‘You’re Next’ teaser trailer and posters!


We’ve seen the home invasion film done before, most recently in “The Purge,” but early reviews of “You’re Next” are hailing it as the second coming in horror films. Of course, it isn’t the first time tons of critics have sworn an upcoming movie is awesome, so we remain a bit wary, but this short trailer looks promising, albeit for only about 30 seconds.

We need a longer one, thank you very much! But here’s the teaser, and we’re digging those teaser posters.
