"Tearful Surrender" is a dark surreal erotic tale chock-full of tension, despair, and murder using nature, sexuality, and violence as metaphors to represent the sadness of what it is to be immortal. The story is inspired by the Jupiter Effect hysteria, with great emphasis on the unforgiving qualities of love, sex, and death, mythology, the mysteries of the occult, fantasies, and misery.

The acclaimed cult film is written and directed by Daniel Armstrong and stars Daisy Masterman, Whitney Duff, and Emma-Louise Wilson.

SHEBORG tells of an alien fugitive that crash lands into a local puppy farm and begins turning people into mutated robot killing machines with a taste for puppy flesh. Dylan (Whitney Duff) and Eddie (Daisy Masterman), two self-proclaimed political activists, are all that stand between the Earth and total domination.

The official trailer has been released for indie film "Failing Grace", a stylized, obsession thriller in the vain of classics like “Cape Fear” and “The Crush”, with hints of “Fatal Attraction” and “The Hand That Rocks the Cradle” peppered in. Released by Concept Media (“Midsummer Nightmares,” “Don’t Fuck in the Woods”), the film is written and directed by studio co-founder Ryan Stacy; produced by Shawn Burkett, Chris Gierowski, and JJ Phillips (author of the indie horror sensation “Parental Bloodshed”).
The film is centered around sisters Maggie (Sarah Curtis) and Grace Novak (Caroline Vineyard), both actress making their film debuts, who are moving on after the brutal murder of their parents at the hands of the former’s estranged lover, Jack Elligott (Josh Miller, “Nothing Good Ever Happens”). Five years after that fateful night, Jack returns after his disappearance and is out for unhinged revenge. Having hid the truth behind Jack’s evil ways, Maggie soon finds all happiness & progress interrupted when this deranged man slithers back into their lives...and the lies meant to protect Grace begin to fail her.
Other cast delivering gripping performances include Marylee Osborne (Betsy, Primordial) as Leona, Jack’s equally crazed sidekick. Stacy Freeders (“Midsummer Nightmares”) returns to the screen as Maggie’s obnoxiously rich gal-pal Joplin O’Toole. Brittany Blanton (“Don’t Fuck in the Woods” & it’s sequel) plays Cara Knoll, Grace’s oversexed friend and (poor) voice of reason. Austin Tarantino (“Scream for Summer”) steals the show as Grace’s potential love interest.
The film is currently making its way around for film festival consideration; a theatrical premiere to be set at a later date.
Produced by J.J. Abrams and directed by Julius Onah, "The Cloverfield Paradox" is the third installment in the franchise, and by far the most adventurous and experimental. The sci-fi horror takes on a look and feel closer to "Event Horizon" or "Supernova" and less like a monster movie. It stars Gugu Mbatha-Raw, David Oyelowo, Daniel Brühl, John Ortiz, Chris O'Dowd, Aksel Hennie, Zhang Ziyi, Elizabeth Debicki, and Roger Davies. The story is a complicated, complex stitching of several sci-fi tropes filled with quantum mechanics, physics and a lot of science stuff I don't know enough about to be impressed or aggrevated. I do get enough of what Data or Seven-Of-Nine tells me on Star Trek to think "that makes since. And I love 'The Big Bang Theory'. Other than that I take a movie's premise on face value when watching sci-fi. So I was intrigued with the story here on theoretical merit alone. The acting in "The Cloverfield Paradox" is lukewarm. The cast is a collection of notable talent, yet most performances either fell a bit flat or seemed two-dimensional. It has some pretty good moments that seem to happen surprisingly and randomly during some dialog scenes, and some of the action moments are cool. Alot of the time though you can almost hear the word "action". Not really but... Now I dug the special effects. The settings had an almost revamped "2001 : Space Odyssey" feel and the CGI is theatre quality. The last third is really the only indication this is a Cloverfield movie, and the ending is one you know is coming way in advanced, but it is a cool ending. I kinda felt I was watching more of a prequel explaining the real story about what went down that caused the first film to happen. Overall the film is a mixed bag but as disjointed as it seems it has some entertaining moments. (2.5/5)
"The Predator" is directed by Shane Black and stars Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Edward James Olmos. The film hits theaters nationwide September 14, 2018.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.
The first teaser trailer for sci-fi creature sequel "Godzilla : King Of Monsters" has been released. The film is set for May 2019 and is the direct sequel to 2014's "Godzilla". The film is directed by Michael Dougherty and stars Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, and Sally Hawkins.
Mothra - Pupal DNA samples suggest a remarkable, multi-stage evolution. On reaching adulthood, Mothra's gigantic thorax is capable of emitting beta-wave bioluminescence which can be projected through the intricate patterns on its wings and weaponized into blinding 'god rays'. As one of the deadliest and most beautiful natural phenomena in Earth's history, no wonder this devastating guardian angel was worshipped as a goddess by the ancient human civilizations blessed to witness her. Rodan- Rodan's wings are wrapped around its body in stasis, but our cryptos estimate a wingspan big enough to create a sonic thunderclap capable of leveling entire cities as it flies overhead. RF-Capture scans reveal that Rodan's skin is not made of rock, but does have an outer dermis of sharp volcanic sediment collected from centuries of dormancy. Sci-ops theorizes the vulcanized appearance of its skin may be an evolutionary trait developed as a form of camouflage against mountain or large rock formations. Truly, a Titan forged in fire. Ghidorah- Monster Zero's dermal layer is gilded with trace amounts of aurum (See Ark Record # 73.126). Metallurgical studies theorize the scales act as a conductor capable of carrying bioelectrical currents through the creature's body. Injuries have been discovered on several locations on the beast's body, reminiscent of claw and scorch marks. Exo-Forensics are currently investigating. Muscle tendons on the wings are so hyper-tensile that their massive aerodynamics could generate hurricane-force winds when in flight. Coupled with its body's electro-receptor molecular biology capable of conducting electrical currents, water vapor in the air would be heated at extreme levels creating its own localized storm system as it travels. Simply put, if Monster Zero were to fly again, the stratosphere would be torn open by an otherworldly tempest of thunder and lightning our sky has never seen. Cryptolinguistics has analyzed translations of every worldwide case study of Monster Zero in the Monarch database across tens of thousands of years. The ancients called it Ghidorah.

The CITIZEN KANE of horror film documentaries gets its USA Cast & Crew Premiere

Directed by Gary Doust, “HORROR MOVIE: A Low Budget Nightmare” documents writer/director Craig Anderson’s troubled journey to make his feature film debut, the horror movie “Red Christmas”
- a quaint story about a murderous aborted fetus. The documentary dramatically follows Anderson’s emotional rollercoaster ride funding, directing and finally trying to sell his dream movie to an industry he knows little about. It’s indie film-school 101 captured
in a engrossing (and at times gross) tale of wide-eyed dreamers, Hollywood scream queens and a vengeful fetus at Christmas.

it’s a free screening. It needs to be seen by every new, rising filmmaker at the fest.”

insiders laying bare the often-hidden truths of the business. Learn how much a film can make, how to pick the most sellable subject matter and most importantly what you should never ever do. If there’s only one panel you should see before making your next
movie it’s this. Come with business cards and lots of questions.
"Basically Hollywood Horrorfest has gone all 'Woodstock' on you - making its two afternoon filmmaking friendly events totally FREE," explains Flanagan.
The panel includes acclaimed Writer/Director Rodney Ascher (ROOM 237), Producer Ed Polgardy (GHOSTMAKER), Distributor Vince D’Amato (DARKSIDE RELEASING), Aggregator Nadav Streett
(RISING SUN MEDIA, INC), Writer/Director Rolfe Kanefsky (PARTY BUS TO HELL), Indie Director Jason Rutherford (SHHHH), Marketing Consultant Matt Chassin, Distributor Erik Lundmark (LEOMARK STUDIOS), Producer Lotti Knowles (CHASTITY BITES), and is moderated

Bad Robot and Paramount dropped the trailer for upcoming action horror "Overlord" ahead of San Diego Comic Con. The filmstars Jovan Adepo, Bokeem Woodbine, Wyatt Russell, Pilou Asbæk, Iain De Caestecker, Jacob Anderson, Dominic Applewhite, Hélène Cardona, and John Magaro. "Overlord" is directed by Julius Avery and hits theatres November 9th.
On the eve of D-Day, American paratroopers are dropped behind enemy lines to carry out a mission crucial to the invasion’s success.

They find themselves fighting against supernatural forces, part of a Nazi experiment.
Netflix Originals latest sci-fi thriller is the apocalyptic "How It Ends". The film is directed by David M. Rosenthal and stars a notable and recognizable cast that consists of Forest Whitaker, Theo James, Kat Graham, Nicole Ari Parker and Kerry Bische. The story is a straightforward, dark-toned action adventure told in a dystopic manner.
When a mysterious disaster turns the country into a war zone, a young lawyer heads west with his future father-in-law to find his pregnant fiancée. The story that Brooks McLaren offers is a doomsday situation, fueled by family drama and total upheaval of social norms, that is full of bluster and low on substance. The characters are developed and relatable, only the archetypes are structured on somewhat obsolete ideals. Luckily the performances are put together by some seasoned talent who manage to give life to this group of "survivors". Basically "How It Ends" plays out as a mismatched buddy roadtrip, but a dark, intense cross country trip through Armageddon. Special effects, both CGI and practical, are worthy and well done examples of quality. The scene after scene moments of - "just how screwed life just got" - are blockbuster level and really give "How It Ends" one of its few good elements. The backgrounds and scenic aspects are cenamatic tablous. I even found no flaws with the music score. The downfall for this one is the simple fact of writer and director choice. The lack of information that sets the scene for what and why we are in the apocalypse is absent. The relationships of these characters seem like intentional cliches with no real grasp on motivation or emotional investment in one another on a level that shows true understanding of objective. It kinda looks as if you get like storyboard in motion but not the substance that puts them all together. And the non-ending thing is annoying. Overall "How It Ends" is a mediocre movie that has as much wrong as it gets right. (2.5/5)
