Teaser Trailer For "Circus Envy"

New Photos From "Battlefield: Los Angeles"

Liebesman, speaking to Empire, explained that his aliens come from a water-based planet and wear "inverted scuba suits, which turn air into water. I wanted them to be an army too. They have generals, they have medics, they have tactics, they have a plan. There's no hive mentality; they're individuals with self-preservation."
The film stars Aaron Eckhart as the leader of a team of Marines attempting to evacuate a group of civilians out of a war zone (formerly the City of Angels). They're up against a huge alien invasion fleet, including giant ships, little ships, seemingly endless firepower and a whole heck of a lot of scary inhabitants.

Israel embracing the Horror Genre with new Zombie movie...

Recently Israel put itself into the horror club with its first ever "Rabies" about a psychotic killer. Now they have got into the dead thing with "Another World"....
The movie is a post-apocalyptic horror/science fiction film. the setting is in a near post apocalyptic future where a biological warfare program goes wrong, and turns most of humanity to mindless, murderous creatures (hence forth – “infected”).
There are five characters, which are still uninfected, trying to survive constant attacks by the infected. each one of them represents in some way a different aspect of human existence, a different world-view, but most important, a different moral view about the world and his/her place in it -
The Colonel – A professional soldier. represents the political-military-economic establishment, which sees life as a constant violent struggle for power and resources.

The Doctor – Represents a commitment to love, justice and non-violent struggle against all wrong.
The Wizard – A young man, an inventor and an autodidact scientist, who looks at life as a puzzle to be solved. he strives to discover, understand and invent, with no thought as to the consequences.
The Daughter – A simple girl with simple ambitions – sailing through life enjoying every comfort, while ignoring or unaware of bigger and more profound issues.
The Mouser – A murderer and rapist, evil in the most banal aspect of the word.
The plot takes place during their last six days. all along, as the characters evolve, they listen to a daily radio program dealing with the extinction of the dinosaurs, finding correlating themes to their own situation. as the protagonists move and try to survive, and as their world views and correlations to the situation are gradually reveled, the following themes are explored: the essence of evil, the boundaries of moral responsibility, species (and humankind) extinction, love, grace, euthanasia and more.

New Horror Series Needs Love! Give it Some!

Press Release
February 1, 2011

Here's word on a new horror series that is seeking your love, check out a teaser below and follow this link to visit the official site.

Monsters don’t really exist. But what if the day came when that all changed. Where the possibility of coming face to face with a thousand year old vampire, a horde of flesh eating zombies or a hungry werewolf, was real. That kind of world serves as the backdrop for Legends of the Night, a new horror anthology TV series, that is an intriguing revision of human history in a world where monsters and other "things that go bump in the night", actually do exist.

Horror in film and television is as popular as it’s ever been, however, Legends of the Night promises to be much more than just a run of the mill horror show. Creator Karl White explains, “This isn’t just a hap-hazard interpretation of a parallel history. It’s not putting creature “A” in, say Victorian England or the Wild West, cause it sounds cool. LOTN is a carefully laid out timeline with stories that focus on dark subject matter with human history serving as an anchor to put it in a real perspective. With an emphasis on building stories and character that have a purpose and an arc, rather than focusing on worn out clich├ęs, cheap shocks or blood and gore.”

Legends of the Night is also taking a different approach to building a fan base that has started before the show has even found a home. White has started a website and an online petition as a unique grass-roots campaign to raise awareness for the idea. He is seeking help from horror fans everywhere to get the series on the air. “I want fans to be part of the process in getting Legends of the Night on TV. The response so far has been great. I think people see that it’s something new and fresh, something that is lacking in horror today, and because of the potential they’re behind it.”

CW to get in on the dead action...

Awakening, written on spec by William Laurin & Glenn Davis, centers on two sisters who come of age and face off against one another amidst the beginning of a zombie uprising. In centers on the older one, who is a public defender. Reveille is co-producing the pilot with Warner Bros. TV, where the script has been laid off. Laurin, Davis, Howard T. Owens, Carolyn Bernstein and Todd Cohen are exec producing.

“Return of the Killer Shrews”

Return of the Killer Screws, co-written (with Pat Moran) and directed by Steve Latshaw, hoping to recreate the exploitation enjoyment of the original for a new generation of B-horror fans while pushing the technical quality up a few notches.
A TV Reality Show hires Captain Thorne Sherman (James Best) and his boat to cargo supplies to the deserted offshore island they’re using as a filming location. Thorne would have refused the job because he’s been to that island before and stills sees it in his nightmares. Unfortunately, as the boat departs, Thorne is too hungover to realize where they’re going and his first mate Rook (Rick Hurst) needs the money. So they sail — to a place Thorne Sherman never wanted to see again as long as he lived: the island of the Killer Shrews.
As the TV crew and two-fisted animal expert Johnny Reno (John Schneider) shoot their reality show, some of the cast and crew go missing, attacked and eaten in a bloody feeding frenzy by strange creatures. But tough as nails Producer Stella, sleazy Director Willard and manipulative Writer Lenora couldn’t care less about the human cost. They are ruthlessly focused on getting their show in the can, regardless of the body count. Only cute young camera operator Mickey (Jennifer Lyons) and her on-again off-again boyfriend Sam grow concerned about their vanished friends. And Captain Thorne grows uneasy. Only he knows that the island holds hidden danger. The place is crawling with giant Killer Shrews, the result of a 50 year old experiment gone terribly wrong. No one is prepared when the Killer Shrews attack, devouring everything in their path! Thorne moves the panicked and blood-spattered survivors to a safe house – the same scientific compound where the man-eating shrews were spawned half a century ago. Everyone is grateful, but creeping suspicion grows. How does Thorne know about this place? And what is his connection to the Killer Shrews?shrew
But these questions can wait. The shrews are fast and ferocious, able to strip flesh from their screaming victims in seconds. And they are ready to attack – now! Stella rises to the occasion, taking charge among the bloody carnage. But her heroism leads to her sudden and gory demise, and soon more crew members fall prey to the creatures’ ravenous, slathering jaws. To make matters worse, Jerry, a mysterious castaway, stalks the survivors. Jerry has a strange hold over the ravenous Killer Shrews, and at times he can control the crawling monsters.
Thorne and Jerry share a strange history, a past linked to the horrific-flesh-eating Shrews. Now Jerry is targeting Thorne for bloody vengeance, and no one is safe from the dangerously insane castaway. Fleeing the relentless carnivorous shrews, Mickey takes refuge in a cave. But her safe haven turns to shocking horror when Mickey is trapped by Jerry. Sam braves the hordes of flesh eating monsters to rescue Mickey from the madman’s lair, but Jerry gets the upper hand. On this island, it’s eat or be eaten, and Jerry decides who is hunter and who is prey.
As the number of survivors dwindle they must overcome their differences to avoid getting eaten alive. But before Thorne can get off the island he must face his horrific past — and a final showdown with Jerry. Time is running out for the survivors to get off the island before the voracious monsters turn them all into bloody Shrew bait.

Stephen King's The Stand gets Big Screen Opportunity

Stephen King's grand opus The Stand is finally getting the big-screen treatment.
Warner Bros. and CBS Films are teaming to adapt the novel. The companies will co-develop and co-produce the feature film, with CBS having the option to participate in co-financing. Warners will handle worldwide marketing and distribution. The studios and producers will sit down with writers and directors in the coming weeks in an attempt to find the right take on the material. One thing to be determined is whether to attempt the adaptation in one or multiple movies. King will be involved in some capacity.

The Stand is a story of good vs. evil after a virus wipes out most of the American population. While it features dozens of characters (such as the Trashcan Man and Mother Abigail) and overlapping story lines running over many years, the struggle boils down to a group of survivors fighting the Antichrist-like Randall Flagg.
