Today, we present the trailer for Entity - no, not The Entity - a found footage entry written and directed by Steve Stone, who is making his feature debut. The film is being touted at the American Film Market this year and you can find the preview after the jump.
Synopsis: In 1998, thirty four unidentified bodies were found in shallow graves in a remote Siberian forest. After subsequent investigations, no official explanation by the Russian authorities was ever offered about the circumstances of the deaths. The case was closed. In 2010, a small English TV crew from the show 'Darkest Secrets' set out for the Siberian forest. 'Darkest Secrets' focuses on revisiting the sites of unsolved crimes and they employ the gifts of a psychic whose extraordinary powers may help shed new light on cold cases. The last communication to their production office in London stated that they were approaching the Siberian region where the bodies were found. Nothing was heard from them again. 'Entity' is the story of what happened to them. The forest was only the beginning....
Teasers for trailers are here to stay. We saw one recently hit a few days ago touting this morning's Iron Man 3 trailer, now, we're getting one for next year's Evil Dead remake. Inside, you'll find the Evil Dead teaser which cobbles together clips from the New York Comic-Con panel and footage from the film. The official trailer debut arrives tomorrow (October 24th).
Directed by Fede Alvarez, produced by Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and Robert Tapert and starring Jane Levy, the remake follows five twenty-something friends who become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead. An archaeologist's tape recording reveals that the ancient text was discovered among the Khandarian ruins of a Sumerian civilization. Playing the taped incantations, the youths unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
Shooting has begun on BBC America's new original series Orphan Black. Tatiana Maslany stars in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Maria Doyle Kennedy (Downton Abbey), Dylan Bruce (The Bay), Jordan Gavaris, Kevin Hanchard, Michael Mando, Elizabeth Saunders and Ron Lea also star.
The series is shooting on location and in studio in Toronto, Ontario through February 2013.
After witnessing a woman's suicide, Sarah assumes her identity hoping that cleaning out the dead woman's bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones... but are they the only ones? With an assassin hot on her trail, Sarah is racing for answers.
Orphan Black is executive produced by Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier (Being Erica), Graeme Manson (Cube, Flashpoint), and John Fawcett (Ginger Snaps). The drama is co-created by Manson and Fawcett, with Manson also serving as writer and Fawcett as director. The series will premiere in early 2013 as part of BBC AMERICA's Supernatural Saturday programming block and in Canada on Bell Media's SPACE. BBC Worldwide will distribute the series internationally.
One film that rather surprised this writer earlier this year was Nicholas McCarthy's The Pact, which made its premiere at Sundance and was later released in a limited theatrical run. The writer-director is now moving forward with a new film that will be entitled Home, reports Screen Daily.
According to Screen Daily, Home centers "on a young woman who investigates an incident that took place in a house where a previous occupant unwittingly summoned the Devil."
McCarthy will direct and Sonny Mallhi (The Strangers) is producing.
According to Screen Daily, director Benni Diez will helm a creature feature entitled Stung. Written by Adam Aresty, the film is "about a garden party that turns sour when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven-foot tall predators."
Diez has directed a handful of shorts and has a background in visual effects. The film will be sold at the American Film Market.
Screen Gems has brought online the Red Band trailer for Evil Dead which you can watch using the player below! Opening in theaters on April 12, the film stars Jane Levy, Shiloh Fernandez, Lou Taylor Pucci, Jessica Lucas and Elizabeth Blackmore.
In the remake of the 1981 cult-hit horror film, five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin. When they discover a Book of the Dead, they unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.
ShockTillYouDrop reports that Wes Bentley, Logan Huffman, Michael Trevino, Connor Paolo and Francesca Eastwood are joining Abigail Breslin and Alexander Ludwig for the upcoming Tyler Shields-directed film Final Girl. "Final Girl" is a popular term in the genre, representing the final girl standing at the end of a slasher film.
In the film, Loner Veronica is new to school, shy and vulnerable, the perfect target for a group of teenage boys who lure girls into the woods to hunt and kill them for sport. It’s only after they get her alone that she turns the tables on them, escaping and revealing she’s armed and knows how to defend herself. Little do they know, Veronica is an assassin-in-training, and she’s chosen killing these boys as her final test. When the dust clears, Veronica will find out if she can be the final girl these boys ever have a chance to hurt.
Shooting is expected to begin next month; the film is being pushed at the American Film Market this year.
