Two brand new clips for director Brian M.Conley’s “horrifyingly intimate” (PopGeeks) The Basement, available on Demand and opening in theaters in Los Angeles, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Cleveland, Dallas, Minneapolis and Phoenix from Friday, have been released.
A film the critics say is full of “shock and surprise” (Flickering Myth) and is “cinematic and compelling” (OC Movie Reviews), The Basement stars Mischa Barton (“The OC”, The Sixth Sense) in a new Uncork’d Entertainment release from Brian M.Conley and Nathan Ives.
Craig is abducted and wakes up in a basement. His captor, Bill, is a twisted serial killer who wishes to reenact his own capture, with Craig playing the part of Bill and Bill playing everyone else. As Bill tortures Craig, he cycles through a number of personas, all while Craig tries desperately to find a way into Bill’s pathology in order to save himself.
The first clip features Barton’s character, while the second sees Craig (Cayleb Long) try to escape the basement.
Jackson Davis, Cayleb Long, Tracie Thoms, and Bailey Anne Borders co-star in The Basement, opening September 15 in theaters and On Demand.
When the new Halloween movie hits theaters in October 2018, it will have the distinction of being the first film in the canon with creator John Carpenter’s direct involvement since 1982’s Halloween III: Season of the Witch. Carpenter serves on the new David Gordon Green-directed installment as an executive producer, a creative consultant, and, thrillingly, as a soundtrack composer, alongside his collaborators from his three recent solo albums, Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.
The new soundtrack pays homage to the classic Halloween score that Carpenter composed and recorded in 1978, when he forever changed the course of horror cinema and synthesizer music with his low-budget masterpiece. Several new versions of the iconic main theme serve as the pulse of Green’s film, its familiar 5/4 refrain stabbing through the soundtrack like the Shape’s knife. The rest of the soundtrack is just as enthralling, incorporating everything from atmospheric synth whooshes to eerie piano-driven pieces to skittering electronic percussion. While the new score was made with a few more resources than Carpenter’s famously shoestring original, its musical spirit was preserved.
Halloween will be released October 19 through EVP Recordings under exclusive licence from Sacred Bones Records on CD and Australian exclusive orange/black LP.
Horror flick The Cured is set for an Australian release after being picked up by Dendy Cinemas. You can check out the brand new trailer here for the film which is directed by first time feature director David Feyne and stars Ellen Page (Juno, Inception) and Sam Keeley (Burnt, This Must Be The Place).
It is the horror film that every Aussie horror fan is talking about at the moment. The creepy poster is in the cinema lobbies and the trailer is on our screens. Now the cast of Slender Man explain what the film is all about.
When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter’s family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry. The more they discover, the more they find themselves trying to outrun the sinister fate they seem to have inherited. Making his feature debut, writer-director Ari Aster unleashes a nightmare vision of a domestic breakdown that exhibits the craft and precision of a nascent auteur, transforming a familial tragedy into something ominous and deeply disquieting, and pushing the horror movie into chilling new terrain with its shattering portrait of heritage gone to hell.
Release Date: June 7
Director: Ari Aster
Cast: Toni Collette, Gabriel Byrne, Alex Wolff, Milly Shapiro
