"I was born and raised in these woods… I'll be just fine." Yeah... right. We all know what happens when people think the woods is a good place to go on a relaxing vacation. Dark and sinister things happen and people die! That's the truth because it happens in every horror movie that is set in the woods! We've got a creepy trailer for an upcoming horror film called Dead Night, and it actually looks like it's worth checking out. But that's coming from a guy who loves watching horror movies, even the bad ones. I like what I'm seeing in this trailer, though, it looks like it going to be a wildly eerie horror flick with some surprising twists and turns. The movie stars Brea Grant (Heroes) and 80's horror icon Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, You're Next, From Beyond) and this is the synopsis: James and his wife Casey load up their two teenage kids and head out to a remote cabin in Oregon for a weekend trip. When James heads into the snowy forest in search of firewood, he … [Read more...] about There’s Something Sinister in The Woods in This Creepy Trailer For DEAD NIGHT

To everyone who saw Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard's horror satire The Cabin in the Woods last year and immediately thought, "That's where I want to go on vacation," here's some good news for you: Come September, you can make that ghoulish dream come true -- and it won't even end in your grisly, gory death (Well, as far as we know). In an example of life imitating art that was, itself, imitating art, both the cabin and the subterranean base unleashing B-movie hell on its inhabitants are going to be recreated as part of Universal Orlando's annual Halloween Horror Nights celebration this fall. But don't worry: Visitors to this particular cabin will be on the side of the guys in charge of the whole shebang. According to reports, The Cabin in The Woods attraction will include a storyline co-written by Goddard in which the larger mythology and background of the organization based underneath the cabin will be revealed, via Lost-like induction films to new recruits (i.e., the attraction's … [Read more...] about ‘Cabin in The Woods’ to Become Theme Park Attraction
It's been five years since Drew Goddard's directorial debut, The Cabin in the Woods, co-written with embattled geek idol Joss Whedon, opened in theaters to astronomical praise from critics, anchored by a deluge of reviews making the same claim: that the film was a game-changer, the kind of once-in-an-era piece of genre cinema capable of rewriting the rules of its classification. Maybe half a decade is too small a sample size for bearing out the truth of hyperbole, but lo and behold, the game remains mostly the same. We're still making schlocky horror movies; we're still setting a handful of those movies in cabins located way out in the woods, honoring one of horror's classic setups via repetition. So it goes. What has changed since 2012 is pop culture's attitude toward horror. You could call it a matter of tastes changing, perhaps, or you could say that The Cabin in the Woods, out in digital 4K for the first time Tuesday, made such a profound statement about the mechanics of the horror … [Read more...] about Why Didn’t ‘Cabin in the Woods’ Change the Horror Genre?
Almost as long as there has been cinema there have been horror movies. While the genre is often branded with the stigma of being low-brow, cheap, and only for hardcore fans of jump scares and gore, it is also responsible for some of the greatest films of all-time, and certainly many of our favorites fall somewhere along the horror spectrum. Just as there are trashy, forgettable, throwaway horror films every year, there are also those that that play upon our greatest fears to create tension, an ominous atmosphere, and to terrify us to our very core. The history genre is full of monsters, both human and otherwise, horrific events, and chilling scenarios that thrill us, scare us, keep us on the proverbial edge of our seats, and stick around to haunt our nightmares long after we leave the theater. The list that follows is Cinema Blend’s definitive, once-and-for-all comment on the greatest horror movies ever made, though we can’t help but wish there was room for 50 or 100 … [Read more...] about The 30 Best Horror Movies Of All Time
