A great new trailer for Jim Mickle’s “We Are What We Are”.

1146697_491964827554670_1616421462_nOfficial Synopsis :

In their small town, the Parkers are known for their discretion and reclusiveness. Behind closed doors, the father, Frank rules his family with a firm severity. Following the brutal and unexpected death of their mother, teenage daughters Iris and Rose need to start looking after their younger brother Rory. Soon though, they must carry even more weight as they are faced with new responsibilities.  At their father’s command, they must continue a macabre ancestral tradition at all costs. But when a torrential storms hits the region, the town’s rivers overflow, and the local authorities start to uncover clues that lead them closer to the Parker’s terrible secret.

A remake of the 2010 Mexican film with the same name from writer/director Jorge Michel Grau, this one seems safe in the hands of Stakeland director Jim Mickle.
In fact, Jim Mickle was quoted saying the following in an interview:
“We’re not going to fuck this up. I just finished a first draft of it with Nick Damici, and we’re taking it in a very cool new direction that I’m quite stoked about. I’m not usually a fan of international “remakes”, but this one has so many possibilities for trying out new ideas while honoring the Mexican film, and hopefully creating something that can play hand in hand with Jorge’s film. I’m hoping it can also bring awareness to the original and not aim to make it obsolete as a lot of retreads wind up doing. Couldn’t be happier with what we have so far! Think Winter’s Bone with cannibals…”

And Michael Parks. I would watch him in anything.

“We Are What We Are” will be out next month, September 27th 2013!

First look at the remake of Carrie! UPDATED with another brand new trailer!

The quiet suburb of Chamberlain, Maine is home to the deeply religious and conservative Margaret White and her daughter Carrie. Carrie is a sweet but meek outcast whom Margaret has sheltered from society. Gym teacher Miss Desjardin tries in vain to protect Carrie from local mean girls led by the popular and haughty Chris Hargensen, but only Chris’ friend, Sue Snell, regrets her actions. In an effort to make amends, Sue asks her boyfriend, high school heartthrob Tommy Ross, to take Carrie to the prom. After a cruel prank by her peers at the prom, Carrie is pushed to the limit and unleashes telekinetic havoc upon her classmates and the entire town.

Yeah, yeah we all know the plot. Let’s see how it looks…

Check out these insane trailers for “Witching And Bitching”!


witching_and_bitching.608x868When your marriage has you on the brink and your bank account in red, it’s time to rob a Cash-for-Gold shop. That’s the last-ditch decision made by a group of desperate guys led by divorced dad JOSÉ. Unfortunately for all, José never lets his kid down and the day of the break-in is his day of the week with his 8-year old son. Looks like little Sergio will have to tag along. They make it out of the shop with a bag full of 25,000 gold wedding rings only to find their getaway car has disappeared: ANTONIO’s wife had to go shopping.

They flag down a cab driven by Manuel, another victim of a marriage that leaves plenty to be desired. So do they run south to Morocco? Not easy getting through with a cab… Looks like it’s north to France, especially with Jose?’s promise to Sergio that they’ll go live in Disneyland. Things get even more complicated when 8:30pm comes and José doesn’t drop Sergio off at his ex- wife’s as expected. She takes it to the police, but goes looking for Sergio herself when they don’t take it seriously enough.

Meanwhile, the 25,000 gold rings become a real curse when the guys enter the impenetrable forests of Basque Country, home to ancient covens and witchery. It’s poetic justice time for their failures with the opposite sex. They run head-on with a horde of crazed women who feed on human flesh. Trapped in a mysterious mansion, the witches try to seize the rings at all cost and to rip out our heroes’ souls to boot. Poor guys, they made their bed and now they’ll have to sleep in it. And all they wanted was a little peace and quiet.

The first trailer (below) definitely has my attention!

1325_549851751742104_880357360_nAnd this second, recently-released trailer has a little more un-subtitled dialogue, but shows us a bit more of the substance to the film…

“Witching and Bitching” is set to be released in Spain this September, with a world-wide release to soon follow!

Pre-Production trailer for “Squirrels”, a horror movie.

squirrels_posterMad genius Timur Bekmambetov has a new film in the works, and no, it’s not the conclusion of his awesome “Watch” trilogy or a sequel to “Wanted”.
The next film on the slate of this “visionary director” is Squirrels, if he has his way!
This one is so important to him that he has just released this pre-production trailer for the film he wants to make…

The synopsis reads like this :

When a young man’s estranged father is killed under suspicious circumstances, he returns home for the first time in years to get to the bottom of the mystery. Hoping to uncover some logical explanation, he instead finds his mom’s sleazy new boyfriend, a natural gas company buying up the town, an angry female sheriff who happens to be his ex-girlfriend, and an army of flesh-eating squirrels hellbent on destroying everything in their path due to an erosion of their food chain as a result of environmental destruction by the gas company.

And if it looks anything like his previous films (and the awesome teaser above, for that matter), I am sold!
What do you guys think?
Are killer squirrels too much of a stretch for a horror film?
After all we have been hunting and eating them for years…

I think, after watching the video above, that we can all agree it is high time that the squirrels had their revenge!
I will be surprised if this one ever gets produced, but you saw it here first!

This day is going to be a bit out of the ordinary!
MOTHER KNOWS BEST is the story about Carl, a somewhat shy man preparing for a date with his childhood sweetheart, Rebecca. Carl’s mother has quite a few objections about the date and she is not too shy to express them, though.

Trailer for “Haunter” from the director of “Splice” and “Cube”!

haunter_largeSynopsis :
Abigail Breslin stars as a young girl who must unravel a decades-old mystery to save her family in this terrifying haunted house thriller.

Eh, okay, well what does it look like?

All right, I am convinced now.
Looks interesting ; a reverse ghost story, or Groundhog Day with apparitions!
Director Vincenzo Natali has done some interesting stuff in the past, so we should give this one a shot. Some of the scenes in the trailer really are beautifully shot.
Let’s hope this one brings the style and the substance.

Check out the hilarious red-band trailer for “Bad Milo”!


badmilo1Official synopsis :

Duncan’s (Ken Marino) life is a real pain in the ass. Tormented by a manipulative, crooked boss (Patrick Warburton), a nagging mother (Mary Kay Place), a deadbeat new age dad (Stephen Root), and a sweet, yet pressuring, wife (Gillian Jacobs), his mounting stress starts to trigger an insufferable gastrointestinal reaction. Out of ideas and at the end of his rope, Duncan seeks the help of a hypnotherapist (Peter Stormare), who helps him discover the root of his unusual stomach pain: a pint-sized demon living in his intestine that, triggered by excessive anxiety, forces its way out and slaughters the people who have angered him. Out of fear that his intestinal gremlin may target its wrath on the wrong person, Duncan attempts to befriend it, naming it Milo and indulging it to keep its seemingly insatiable appetite at bay.

Good lord, this is going to be awesome!
Definitely getting a Basket Case / Bad Taste vibe from this one, and that is a good thing!
Plus it is cool to see another alumni from The State in a horror flick, after some of the other guys showed up in Hell Baby last week.
Magnolia Pictures will release Bad Milo On Demand August 29, 2013 and in theaters October 4, 2013!
I cant wait. What do you guys think?

Birth Of The Living Dead, a new documentary about the original zombie film!


In 1968 a young college drop-out named George A. Romero directed “Night of the Living Dead,” a low budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day.

“Birth of the Living Dead,” a new documentary, shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers — policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad-men, housewives and a roller-rink owner — to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film. During that process Romero and his team created an entirely new and horribly chilling monster – one that was undead and feasted upon human flesh.

This new documentary also immerses audiences into the singular time in which “Night” was shot.  Archival footage of the horrors of Vietnam and racial violence at home combined with iconic music from the 60s invites viewers to experience how Romero’s tumultuous film reflected this period in American history.  “Birth of the Living Dead” shows us how this young filmmaker created a world-renowned horror film that was also a profound insight into how our society really works.

This interesting-looking documentary will be presented by fantastic artist Ghoulish Gary Pullin and Chris Alexander from Rue Morgue at the Detroit Zombie Con next month
Follow the links for more info!
For the rest of us, a release date has not yet been determined.
Stay tuned to Horror Homework and the film’s official website for more details.
