Jerónimo Rocha’s scifi horror short Dédalo is reminiscent of Alien in both visuals and story. It follows a woman who appears to be the lone survivor of a gruesome attack on her space freighter. Her frantic struggle to survive is suspenseful as hell, but the real draw here is that alien creature, specifically its…
We’ve gotten a few evocative trailers for Spike TV’s eerie, violent Stephen King adaptation, The Mist. Now we have a behind-the-scenes featurette that explains a bit more about the characters, and how the show will focus not just how they’re affected by the titular menace, but also on how living in terror will reshape…
Every year, the Universal theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood go all-out for Halloween, adding haunted mazes to their usual attractions. But for some reason, cinema’s most iconic spooky maze—y’know, the one at the Overlook Hotel—hasn’t been included. Until now.
We’ve known since last fall about the planned TV show based on The Purge, the series of films that imagine an America that allows, encourages, and delights in one night per year of lawless anarchy and violence. We now have an even better idea of how that concept will translate to the small screen. Long story short: it…
The Exorcist was one of the best surprises on TV last year—if you’re a fan of pull-no-punches horror shows with compelling characters and gloriously gory special effects. Season one wrapped up in December, and Fox has been keeping the faithful waiting to hear if it would return. Good news, demon peeps!
It Stains the Sands Red is a zombie movie that seems to borrow a bit from It Follows—it’s about a woman who can’t shake the plodding pursuit of the undead new man in her life. But it’s also set in the Nevada desert, lending a flashy danger to that region not seen since Nomi Malone hitchhiked into Vegas in Showgirls.
Dario Argento’s Italian horror classic Suspiria is beloved for many reasons, but high atop the list is the film’s haunting score by frequent Argento collaborators Goblin. A Suspiria remake is due later this year, and the crucial slot of soundtrack creator has just been announced. It’s a name you might recognize.
The first trailer for Spike TV’s adaptation of Stephen King’s short story The Mist was highly atmospheric and plenty spooky. But while this new teaser is shorter, it’s way gorier. This summer’s TV just got a lot more stomach-turning, and I mean that in the best possible way.
Ghosts are undeniably scary. But if your greatest fear is being trapped in a skin-crawlingly awkward social situation, you may be permanently scarred by Another Evil, a horror-comedy that elevates the concept of “frenemy” to alarming new heights.
I was totally ready to let the upcoming reboot of The Mummy pass me by. The trailers seemed to offer yet another installment of “Tom Cruise Running From Things.” But this new look at the movie focuses on just why Princess Ahmanet wants to break stuff, and now I’m quite intrigued.
Things start off tense in the first full trailer for It Comes At Night. But I didn’t really freak out until the moment that happens at 1:47. That right there is what we call an “oh, please, no” moment. I want to know more, despite also knowing it’ll hurt to learn.
The trailer for Dark Signal piqued our interest for two reasons: one, it’s produced by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones). And two, we can’t resist horror movies that are set in and/or around radio stations. The Fog! Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2! Pontypool! And now... Dark Signal:
At 2011's San Diego Comic-Con, a lucky few got to see the first attempt at a TV adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez’s cult-favorite IDW horror fantasy comic. That pilot never got picked up, but Locke & Key has been playing the second-chance sweepstakes ever since—and it looks to have paid off.
On Halloween 1992, the BBC aired Ghostwatch, a 90-minute special presented as a live, scientific investigation of a haunted house. It was, of course, strictly a faux doc—but it still managed to confuse more than a few viewers who believed they were watching real terrors caught on tape.
Which character does the title of The Survivalist refer to? At first glance, it appears to be the man played by Martin McCann (who’s simply listed as “survivalist” in the movie credits). But the mother-daughter duo (Olwen Fouere and Mia Goth) clearly have their post-apocalypse plan on lock, too.
Earth can be shitty. Sometimes, being whisked away by a passing starship sounds like a pretty good idea. However—it completely depends on who’s behind the controls. Hanging with the Arrival heptapods would be pretty chill. Being shanghaied by any of the following kidnap-happy aliens, however, would not.
We’re just over a month away from Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, a film that’s built its marketing strategy not just on teasers and trailers, but viral clips (like “Meet Walter,” an intro to the movie’s android). The latest are a pair of transmissions to Earth from two Covenant crew members.
Ana Lily Amirpour’s breakout feature, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, was as genre-defying as a Farsi-language black-and-white California vampire Western could be. Her colorful follow-up, The Bad Batch—a horror-romance (with cannibals)—just dropped an insanely grindhouse-ready new trailer.
Fortitude’s second season premieres tomorrow on Amazon Prime. If this news doesn’t excite you, that just means you haven’t yet watched the UK-made show’s first season (also on Amazon Prime). Let io9 give you this public service announcement: Go watch it. At least if you think you’d enjoy a totally gripping, incredibly…
Animal-rampage movies were all the rage in the 1970s, with Jaws elevating the genre from niche horror to blockbuster status. But years before the shark it was all about the rats, in 1971's Willard and 1972's Ben. Now, at long last, this pair of skin-crawling classics is finally coming to Blu-ray.
