Miley Cyrus will be Dracula's daughter in this animated film shooting for a Sept. 21 2012 release date.
Welcome to the Hotel Transylvania, Dracula's (Sandler) lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free from meddling from the human world. But here's a little known fact about Dracula: He is not only the Prince of Darkness; he is also a dad. Over-protective of his teenage daughter, Mavis, Dracula fabricates tales of elaborate dangers to dissuade her adventurous spirit. As a haven for Mavis, he opens the Hotel Transylvania, where his daughter and some of the world's most famous monsters – Frankenstein and his bride, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, a family of werewolves, and more – can kick back in safety and peace. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but his world could come crashing down when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Five twenty-something friends become holed up in a remote cabin where they discover a Book Of The Dead and unwittingly summon up dormant demons living in the nearby woods, which possess the youngsters in succession until only one is left intact to fight for survival.-TFC

The latest one sheet from Silver Ferox for the demon flick “The Devil’s Rock” From the director of Eel Girl and Night of the Hell Hamsters.
Set in the Channel Islands on the eve of D-Day, two Kiwi commandos, sent to destroy German gun emplacements to distract Hitler’s forces away from Normandy, discover a Nazi occult plot to unleash demonic forces to win the war.
Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two films, returns in her lead role as the vampire warrioress Selene, who escapes imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, and are conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species.
Sony Pictures has now established a theatrical release date of January 20th, 2010 for the film.
When Red, a young girl, awakens in a house, she has no idea how she has come to be there. Exploring her surroundings she soon realizes that she is not alone, in fact everyone else in the house is one of the worst serial killers in the world. Now it is a race against time as one by one the cells open and each killer is unleashed to stalk her through the inescapable corridors of the SLASHER HOUSE.
The Revenant will be released by Lightning Media in the U.S. The Revenant's director Kerry Prior wrote the original screenplay and produced the film with Liam Finn, and Jacques Thelmaque.
The story is about a soldier (David Anders, from TV’s "24" and "The Vampire Diaries") who is killed in Iraq and then finds himself resurrected as a "revenant," or one who has returned from the dead. He turns to his slacker best friend (Chris Wylde) to help him manage his newfound thirst for blood, and the duo quickly realize that this zombie-fied state is a perfect opportunity to become vigilante crime fighters. Their adventure quickly becomes more complicated and bloody than they expected, however.
Looking like a post apocalyptic Jason-esque slasher the image on this poster is kinda like a Ghostface , Jason hybrid evil, with a tease “if you hear them coming, your already dead”. So maybe these are like the soul eater demons that wait in that realm the spirit steps into just before the light appears waiting to feast on the disoriented and slightly naive soul!
“As a young novelist and his wife are coping with the loss of their child, their lives are turned upside down when a panicked girl appears at their home in the middle of the night with stories of masked intruders stalking her. That night the stalkers strike, sending the couple on a horrific game of cat and mouse, where they are forced to uncover shocking details from their past that may be the reason for the attack”
“A rumor had been circulating like wild fire amongst the soldiers. A mad woman living on the island had died at the exact hour of 23:59, and it is believed that her spirit had returned to haunt the soldiers at the exact same time.
One of the recruits, Tan, the introverted platoon outcast, is adamant that he will be the next victim of the mad woman’s spirit.
He tries to convince his buddy Jeremy that the woman’s spirit has been visiting him every night. Jeremy laughs it off and claims that there are no such things as ghosts in this world. They only exist because of Tan’s overactive imagination.
However, during the 24 km road march for the platoon in the forest, Tan was found dead by the river, with his limbs contorted in a strange way and an expression of deep fear on his face.
Overwhelmed with guilt, Jeremy decides to investigate Tan’s death, convinced that it was not an accident as what the military officers believe.
Little does he know that the truth behind Tan’s death will unearth a terrible dark secret of the island and he will have to confront his deepest fears in order to find the truth.”

Revised and expanded, the startling debut of Simon Strantzas resurfaces with tales of dark Gods and monsters of the flesh, emissaries from a world beneath our own, a world from where nightmares are born. Here, a man searches for truth in a universe that has forsaken him and pays the price for that knowledge, and a woman with out hope travels northward to find the place where her life fell to pieces and discovers of what she truly is made. They say no man is an island, no matter how much he wishes to be, but what then is that ship that sails toward him, and what pray tell is that lashed to its bow. These are tales that infect our dreams, tales of things that live beyond our understanding and watch us with malignant indifference. They are tales of grief, of loneliness, of guilt. Tales of the liminal places that separate our world from that other world, the world to which our souls are merely a gateway. Come inside and witness what resides in us all, deep down beneath the surface.

They find themselves entombed in the bunker with a disparate group of individuals caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. The terrorist bomb is found, but attempts by bomb disposal experts fail to prevent it exploding, destroying central London and contaminating the surrounding countryside. As a result of the blast a group of dangerous convicts break out from a local high security prison, but are contaminated with radiation and start to mutate. The mutants infiltrate the bunker and one by one the occupants endure a horrible, grisly death. Eventually one of the survivors escapes from the bunker to make contact with the outside world and a rescue helicopter is organised. But inside the S.N.U.B. the mutants are closing in. Not everyone will make it...

"
U.K.-based sales and finance label Stealth Media Group is handling international sales with Stealth’s Michael L Cowan executive producing.
A post apocalyptic horror story that doesn’t rely on otherworldly monsters or supernatural deities to shed nightmarish terror on the characters. Instead this film brings to light the real demons of our reality-Man! The extent and unparalleled darkness of human capabilities become true and unprecedented in the event of cataclysmic annihilation. The true monster, that shadowy creature that goes bump in the night that fairytale and legend can only hint to is visualized and exhausted in this tale of man’s destruction of humanity!
“In this graphic and violent, post-apocalyptic thriller, nine strangers — all tenants of a New York high-rise apartment — escape a nuclear attack by hiding out in the building’s bunker-like basement. Trapped for days underground with no hope for rescue, and only unspeakable horrors awaiting them on the other side of the bunker door, the group begins to descend into madness, each turning on one another with physical and psycho-sexual torment. As supplies dwindle, and tensions flare, they grow increasingly unhinged by their close quarters and hopelessness. Each act against one another becomes more depraved than the next. While everyone in the bunker allows themselves to be overcome by desperation and lose their humanity, one survivor holds onto a thin chance for escape, even with no promise of salvation on the outside.”
The full unrated director’s cut of The Divide hits theatres on January 13th, 2012.
