Melville's story is a horror film is loosely based on the sinking of the whaling ship Essex in 1820, now makes a Ron Howard film adaptation of the hunt and the hard life in the 1800s whalers. The film is a visual treat, incredibly dramatic and technically well made - but it is not devoid of flaws altogether. Tough guy Owen Chase Chris Hemsworth is the underdog who comes from humble and working his way up to first mate, but just as he promised a promotion to captain will spolingen Pollard B. Walker and steal the job in front of him. It is the beginning of a predictable conflict between the two cockerel are when they go in search of the coveted valoljan. We sit and feel a bit cheated. We feel moved 170 years back in time, all accompanied by alluring photo with beautiful close-ups and sweeping natural landscape, with a lovely color palette that matches the season, the sea and run the ship and its crew, which increases the tension in the hunt for the giant elections.
He followed this with a series of business meetings with Indian corporate heads, such as Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry, ICICI bank managing director Chanda Kochhar, Vodafone India CEO Sunil Sood and Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani.After announcing the opening of an app development and design centre in India, he also met four Indian app developers.Cook also headed to the city's iconic Mehoob film studio, meeting director Mukesh Bhatt for a guided tour of the sets of his upcoming horror film.Bhatt revealed that Cook did not want to "skip Bollywood on his first visit to India"."He seemed keen to see how Apple could partner with the industry — after all, movies don't have to be made by just big film producers these days, it can be shot on an iPhone," he said, adding that Cook seemed especially interested in the studio's history.He ended the day by hanging out with a bunch of Bollywood actors at Khan's party.
Blumhouse Productions has announced that a new installment of the Halloween franchise is in the works, with original Halloween director and co-writer John Carpenter attached as an executive producer on the project.It s unknown whether the film will be a reboot of the franchise, a sequel to the original seven-film slasher series, or a sequel to the recent two-film reboot of the franchise by writer/director Rob Zombie.38 years after the original Halloween, I m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all, said Carpenter in a statement accompanying the announcement.Over the last decade, Blumhouse has found quite a bit of success with low-budget horror films that win over audiences without hefty production costs, including the Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and The Purge franchises.Carpenter will serve as an executive producer on the new movie, but reports suggest that Blumhouse founder Jason Blum is also hoping the accomplished filmmaker will compose the score for the film — much as he did with the original, iconic Halloween score.The great Malek Akkad producer and son of original Halloween producer Moustapha Akkad and John Carpenter have a special place in the hearts of all genre fans and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together.
Easy: the specialty store that focuses on a particular genre instead of trying to cover everything comprehensively.The price is excellent, much lower than either Netflix or Hulu: just $4.99 per month or $50 per year .Their choices include: The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari 1919 , Carnival of Souls 1962 , Night of the Living Dead 1968 , Night Tide 1961 , Nosferatu 1922 , Spider Baby 1964 , White Zombie 1932 , and other classics.The site, curated by horror aficionados Sam Zimmerman and Colin Geddes, and backed by AMC Networks producers of Mad Men and Breaking Bad , avoids tons of junk, remakes, lazy sequels, or movies that were simply designed for a quick, opening-weekend profit only to be discarded and forgotten.I checked out a movie I d been wanting to see called We Are Still Here 2015 , a kind of paranoid ghost story featuring cult stars Barbara Crampton, Larry Fessenden, and Lisa Marie.I played it on the Shudder app on my tablet, on my laptop, and on my smart TV and had no problems; it was a very enjoyably unsettling experience.
As we await the likes of Lights Out and The Woods—both rumored to be nightmare-inducing—later this year, there s no better time than to look back at what s scared us the most in the past decade.It s a well-crafted monster movie with the requisite political message the creature is shown to have been caused by the American military and well-drawn characters.Darren Aronofsky s melding of horror with the agonizing and competitive world of dance is a callback to Suspiria, but Black Swan s hallucinogenic freak-out vibes belong solely to this gleefully trashy art film in disguise.Mothers, sons, wayward souls, children in peril, a cave, and a big old house—The Orphanage has it all, and is also heartfelt in addition to being absolutely dripping with dread.Get your kiddie vampires straight from Sweden.The slamming door seen in this trailer, of course, is the type of thing that moved unsuspecting Paranormal Activity viewers to unleash full-throated screams—and that s just one of many moments like that in this movie.
Judge Michael Wiles of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan issued an order forbidding Netflix to release the films, saying a premature debut of the movies could prove devastating for the Hollywood studio that he released from chapter 11 earlier this year.Relativity s fragile reorganization plan is dependent upon the theatrical release of its most anticipated films: Masterminds, a comedy starring Zach Galifianakis and Kristen Wiig, and The Disappointments Room, a horror film starring Kate Beckinsale.Netflix had also proposed having the dispute settled in arbitration rather than bankruptcy court, which Judge Wiles flatly rejected.Relativity filed for bankruptcy last summer, carrying more than $1 billion in debt.The company s reorganization plan, which won final court approval in March, calls for the two films to be rolled out in theaters in September and December and later released abroad and on streaming services.Judge Wiles on Friday chided Netflix for failing to raise the potential for conflicts over the release timeline during the final hearing on the reorganization plan, which focused on projected revenue from the films theatrical release to help demonstrate the plan s financial viability.
Janet Madison Wolfe is an absolute terror in James Wan s The Conjuring 2.If they feel like something is going to happen, or they think from an educational standpoint that something is about to happen because of all the moving parts, it is your job to break that expectation and show the audience something different.For Wan, that means he s thinking about the scares like they re a character in the movie—he s considering them from the very earliest moments.Then when I m on set, I feel it out.I just let my instincts take over.He feels, if you get a uniquely tuned balance of all of it, each emotion enhances the others.
Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios says the inclusion of Freddy Krueger and co. as downloadable characters in Mortal Kombat may one day lead to a standalone game where they all battle it out.The Nightmare on Elm Street villain has been joined by Friday The 13th's Jason Vorhees, Leatherface of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Alien s Xenomorph and Predator from Predator as DLC in the last two Mortal Kombat titles."With Mortal Kombat, we stepped outside of the universe with characters like Freddy Krueger, Jason, Alien, Predator, and stuff like that, so the movie stuff kind of mixes things up, Boon added."Fan feedback is another big one; just hearing some very loud, insistent people saying what they want.So there are anumber of variables, including what the players have been asking for.We're always listening to feedback."
Well it certainly should be, which is why we've trawled Netflix to find the scariest, goriest, most tense and unpleasant movies currently in the catalogue.Yes, this film will fray your nerves like wool on a barbed wire fence, but it's also a powerful meditation on loss and trauma.Mysterious zombie outbreak caused by shadowy government a-doings?Jesse Eisenberg's Columbus is a coward who survives by following those rules to the letter; his companion, Woody Harrelson's Tallahassee, is a zombie-killing machine on a quest for the last surviving Twinkie.It's what's known as an "anthology series", with each season there are four on Netflix featuring a different time period, location and with some notable exceptions cast.Watching American Horror Story is much like riding a ghost train or visiting The London Dungeon - you move from fright to fright, spanning a spectrum of horrible things from serial killers to vampires to witches to aliens.
Twitter user Tatsunoru has created a VR prototype based on Japanese horror film Sadako vs. Kayako.The brief demo, known as the Sadako Prototype follows the demonic little girl as she crawls up her homely well and dials a nearby phone.After this she falls through a nearby television set, lunging out at her helplessly unsuspecting victim.Related: Trials of the Blood Dragon ReviewOne of our favourite features of this neat little demo is Sadako s hair, which blocks her vision as she crawls about.Keep in mind that this demo isn t playable, but it is cool concept of what might be achieved with survival horror in virtual reality.Let us know in the comments.
What horror film fan doesn t like a scary flick filled with a fair share of gore, especially one featuring a bloodthirsty robot looking for love?The British Board of Film Classification BBFC says that you will need to be at least 15 to catch ABE VR in either of its formats, 2S or virtual reality, according to VR Focus.ABE VR is the first such title to receive an age restrictive rating from the BBFC.Hammerhead VR developed the concept for ABE VR, based on the award winning Sci-Fi short ABE from Rob Mclellan.ABE VR s malfunctioning main characterIt tells the story of a misguided, malfunctioning robot looking for love from or inside of its human creators.The company describes the experience as remarkably intense, as the film explores emotional connection and heightened sense of empathy that VR delivers as a storytelling medium … such as eye tracking between ABE and us as a character, and the sense of physical restriction the user experiences.
Eight children and two adults are currently in hospital after a roller coaster derailed in a Scottish theme park, with the Strathclyde Country Park deciding it might be best to stay closed for a bit rather than charge people to come in and rubberneck a heap of mangled metal.The horrifying news emerging from the aftermath includes the case of one 11-year-old boy who spent the night worrying about losing his arm -- but his grandad happily told everyone they'd managed to save it today.One 12-year-old girl is rumoured to have suffered head injuries and is in a coma.Being a 2016 disaster everyone's been talking about it on the internet, with witness Katie Burns telling her Facebook followers: "Literally got off the Tsunami at M and then walking past and the next lot of people get on and the full thing goes off the tracks.Kids and adults are still on it upside down, it's like something out a horror film, children crying and everything."Make sure to check out our @GizmodoUK Twitter feed, and our Facebook page.

Jump scares are a staple—and one of the most divisive elements—of modern horror movies.Some people are too susceptible to them, while others find them gimmicky.To people in the former camp: does the above gif scare you in any way?The answer is almost certainly no.Despite the jump in jump scare, what I realized while watching Burger Fiction s latest supercut is that movement really isn t what creates shock with these scenes: it s sound.Go ahead, watch the video on mute.
The last time we heard about some mysterious goings-ons in the woods of Burkittsville, Maryland, it was courtesy of 2000 s Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, the sequel to one of the biggest indie movies ever made, and a film that finally revealed, with frightening force, the true power of the Blair Witch: In just 90 minutes or so, she can make you forget you ever once saw a movie called Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2.It remains one of the most ill-advised, clumsily executed sequels of the 21st century, and seemed to have killed the franchise forever……until tonight, when Lionsgate announced the forthcoming horror movie The Woods is actually Blair Witch—a brand-new, heretofore top-secret follow-up to the 1999 found-footage classic.Created by Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, whose last film was the excellent sci-fi actioner The Guest, the new Blair Witch —which appears to be found-footage-free—stars James Allen McCune Showtime s Shameless as the brother of Heather, one of the doomed campers from the original film.We also get a good look at Ian McShane as Shadow s unasked-for patron Mr. Wednesday, and Emily Browning as his dead wife Laura—and fans of the Gaiman novel will recognize a number of minor characters, from old-schoolers Mad Sweeney and Bilquis to new jacks like Technical Boy.Sansa and Jon Won t Hook Up—Probably.
Everyone on The Exorcist panel—which was preceded by a screening of the fall Fox TV show s first episode—acknowledged the demonically-possessed elephant in the room.This is not the legendary horror film, nor is it trying to be, and they are all very aware of the pressure on anything titled The Exorcist.Writer Jeremy Slater Fantastic Four , clad in a Halloween III: Season of the Witch t-shirt, was the first to admit it, saying, There s no larger fan of the original movie than myself.Fortunately at least going off the first episode, which we ll discuss without spoilers here the TV show is genuinely scary.Sure, it s not as scary as the William Friedkin classic.The Exorcist takes place in Chicago, in the present day, in the same universe as the film—we know this because a Google search by one of the characters turns up an old newspaper article about Georgetown, Chris MacNeil, and a very sinister set of stairs.

The mother stays at home in the new house, renovate and takes care of her two other children. But something is not right, she hears voices, the visions of a confused woman and sees a ghost that is frighteningly similar to her dead daughter.

Robot season 2, episode 4, init1.asec, has come with a fun surprise: After a scene included a fictional horror movie, USA today released its roughly 8-minute beginning.Called The Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie, the short was written and directed by writer and producer Adam Penn, EW reports.Reminiscent of the campy slasher flicks of the 80s, the clip features two more-or-less clueless siblings who are eager to impress their friends with a New Year s party.As they sit together outside their mansion worrying about things like cocaine and champagne, the brother dons an un-chic mask.Robot fan, of course, would recognize it as fscoiety s mask.By the time the murderer does finally make his appearance, he has creepily picked up and put on the mask.
The previous episode of Mr.Robot finally gave us an origin story for the F Society, specifically where the group got its weird, Monopoly Man-inspired mask that has become its symbol and it comes from a fake 1980s horror film that you can watch online.Darlene and Elliot apparently have a shared love of a particularly shitty and fake 1980s horror film called Careful Massacre of the Bourgeoisie.As spotted by Entertainment Weekly, the video is supposedly the first eight-and-a-half minutes of the fake movie and comes complete with a retro logo, Friday the 13th knockoff music, and point-of-view shots that tell you that somebody is hiding in the bushes.The movie-within-a-TV show was written and directed by Adam Penn, one of the show s writers and producers.You can watch it online here, but we must warn you, in the spirit of the films that have come before it, it s NSFW in terms of gore and language.
Deep below Los Angeles, there s a highly secure facility where genius children are educated at an accelerated pace using augmented reality glasses.When three young people hired as glorified babysitters are plopped into their midst at the start of Let s Be Evil, that sterile underground world turns very dark, very fast.Though it s set in L.A., Let s Be Evil is actually a British production, co-written by director Martin Owen, producer Jonathan Willis, and lead actor Elizabeth Morris—whose character, Jenny, gets the majority of the film s shot-through-smart-glasses POV footage.The trio had previously worked together on a movie called L.A. Slasher, a satire in which the protagonist communicates with his audience through social media.Once they started writing the script, Owen and Morris took Willis idea even farther.They didn t really dig into the true potential of augmented reality, which is what we re seeing now with things like Pokémon Go, which is completely and utterly immersive, and makes you believe that something digital is existing in your world.
