AMC Set To Release Indie Horror ‘Smiley’
AMC Theaters and Fever Productions teamed up for the theater run of, Smiley. From director Michael Gallagher comes the indie horror film that “follows a mentally fragile college student named Ashley (Caitlin Gerard from “Magic Mike” and “The Social Network”) who, after learning of an urban legend in which a mysterious serial killer named “Smiley” can be summoned through the Internet, must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley‘s next victim.”
Crazy Cool Stills From ‘Prometheus’ Deleted Scene

New Posters For FX’s American Horror Story: Asylum
Coming off of a successful first season, FX is gearing up for the second season of American Horror Story: Asylum which is set to premier in October. With the release date nearing FX has been been promoting the series like crazy with a slew of new posters. Unfortunately I never caught the first season but these posters are pretty wicked. Check them out.
Insane Poster For ‘The Collection’
Another really cool poster is brought to us by The Collection which is the sequel to Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton’s slasher The Collector. It’s a pretty fantastic looking poster and creepy as hell which will no doubt grab the attention of horror fans.
“When Elena’s (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he’s transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon learning of his daughter’s disappearance, Elena’s wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through thegruesome labyrinth. Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save Elena.”
Evil Wears Many Faces In ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ Poster
When it rains it pours. While I’m not totally sold on the need for another TCM film, especially one in 3D they did however seem to create an extremely cool poster for the film. It also appears that it has underwent a title change from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D to simply Texas Chainsaw 3D. I’ve seen very few films actually utilize their 3D aspect in a way that made me actually appreciate the new technology and none of those were horror films. Will Texas Chainsaw 3D break the mold? Probably not but if theres a scene with leather face shoving his chainsaw through the screen for a good 10 seconds then I’m sure people are going to be leaving the theater with some messy pants.
“‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.
Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…”
