Formerly "Worry Dolls" will see it's official VOD and limited theatrical release this September, on the 16th via IFC Midnight.
Nothing like an encounter with some of nature's more physically dominating, visually intimidating animals to feel truly humbled, to be instantly reminded where we stand on the food chain. Very few (none?) more fitting of that description, than the king of the jungle.
No, not that king of the jungle, this one -
And in David Melini's upcoming horror-thriller, will be the source of fear for an unfortunately dysfunctional family holed up in an isolated chalet. They'll have to put aside and overcome personal battles and demons in order to survive an even bigger threat. Here's the official synopsis below:
An isolated chalet in a snowy forest... A man blinded by alcohol... A woman unable to rebel... And an 8-year-old child troubled and dark... The silent night is broken with cries... the start of a terrible nightmare!
It's a little light on details, but we prefer it that way honestly. Far too many films give away far too much of their story that you see every "surprise" coming a mile away, so it's a bit refreshing to be kept more in the dark than not. Besides, even if at it's worst this turns out to be another "Roar", we'll at the very least be entertained. Look for more details regarding a firm date for the film's release as we approach October. In the meantime, check out the stills and teaser trailer below.

As if the wait for this frickin' movie couldn't get any harder, here's blue balls in the form of a bad-ass new clip from one of our most anticipated horror films this year.
August 5th is the day we all finally get to partake in the telekinetic madness, via your favorite VOD service. Until then, stare at the screen cap below and just imagine that being a visual representation of our collective anticipation - we know when it drops, it'll be worth it - but damn the wait.
We love monster-based horror films, but we'd be a bunch of lying bastards if we said that actually creating a compelling one nowadays, is anything but a gargantuan feat of film making. Tougher still when it's your debut film as director, but if this teaser for Pitchfork has done anything, it's at least provided some level of promise for something potentially good. Check it out below, after the press release:
Los Angeles, CA - Pioneer Motion Pictures has unleashed a new teaser and poster for the -ew slasher film Pitchfork. The first film from Emmy-nominated choreographer Glenn Douglas Packard, Pitchfork kicks off a new franchise of horror, sending a broken and misshapen beast on a rampage fueled by secrets and betrayal.
Co-written by Packard and executive producer Darryl F. Gariglio, Pitchforkpresents a new monster for the ages, joining the pantheon that has terrified audiences for decades as mutilated bodies pile up in their wake. Daniel Wilkinson stars as the titular Pitchfork, joined by Brian Raetz, Lindsey Nicole, Ryan Moore, Celina Beach, Keith Webb, Sheila Leason, Nicole Dambro and Vibhu Raghave.
Look for 'Pitchfork' to premiere sometime later this year.

Ready for a whole new generation of coulrophobics? Check out the new design for "Pennywise" the clown in the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King's "IT". Right off the bat sporting a more sinister and darker look, at the very least, in this promo pic.

Editors note - Its Coulrophobia not Clourophobia
Those of you lucky enough to be attending the Fantasia Film Festival, will be happy to hear that Jeff Maher's "Bed of the Dead" (co-written by Cody Callahan) will have its premier showing there. Weirdest horror villain since the lovable telepathic tire appeared in 2010's "Rubber"! Can't wait for impressions (I'm sure the bed itself can't either....bahahaha *cough*)
