Lily Collins to Star in THE EVIL DEAD Remake
Oh, It says nothing here but, her character's name is ASHley...get it????? Aren't they cheeky little monkeys????Fede Alvarez‘ remake of Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead has landed its first piece of major casting with Lily Collins (The Blind Side) in final negotiations to play the role of “Mia”. Like the original, the new version centers on five friends who go to a remote cabin and unleash dark forces when they read from the Necronomicon. From there, the evil starts possessing each member of the group until only one remains and must fight for survival. Per Bloody Disgusting, Mia is headed to the cabin to detox after a recent overdose. Struggling with her new-found sobriety, “she begins acting insane, so it comes as no surprise that nobody believes her crazy claims of coyote dogs and trees attacking her!” Co-writer Diablo Cody has said the script is unbelievable violent, and BD says there’s also a drug subplot.
Collins had a rough 2011 with both Priest and Abduction receiving critical scorn and flopping at the box office. Her 2012 may not get much easier as she’s starring as Snow White in Tarsem Singh’s rushed and atrocious-looking Mirror, Mirror. The young actress is also attached to star in the indie comedy The English Teacher and the adaptation of the young adult novel The Mortal Instruments. The Evil Dead is due out April 12, 2013.

The Divide Food Drive Details
Anchor Bay Films has teamed up with Feeding America Food Banks to conduct a canned food drive in conjunction with the January 13, 2012 release of Xavier Gens new film, the unrated post-apocalyptic thriller, The Divide.
In a tongue-in-cheek allusion to the canned goods needed for survival in the film, the first 50 people in each market attending the opening night midnight screenings who bring a donation of canned goods will receive a limited edition poster for the film designed by Mondo-commissioned street artist “Jock.”
The canned food drive will be held at the following theatres:
Los Angeles at The Nuart
New York at The Landmark Sunshine
Austin at The Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar
Boston at The Coolidge Theater
Dallas at The Landmark Inwood
Denver at The Landmark Esquire
The Divide features a large and diverse cast featuring such icons of horror and sci-fi as Lauren German (Hostel Part 2), Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens), Milo Ventimiglia (NBC’s "Heroes") and Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction). 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 himself or herself 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.
First Trailer For The American Silent House, A Single Take Horror Film | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Word is mixed, most of the complaints center around 'artsy/self-indulgent' still. could be a conversation piece.
The US remake of Silent House premiered at Sundance almost a full year ago, and the film is finally set for release in March. This timing seems intended to exploit the imminent buzz from when the film’s star, Elizabeth Olsen, gets her practically-guaranteed Oscar nomination for Martha Marcy May Marlene.
I’ve not seen this remake so I can’t vouch for it having been executed in a single take, but it’s certainly supposed to consist of one unbroken shot. Cheating may have been employed.
Hey JD, did you ever watch the original Silent House? I have it somewhere and have started watching it, but couldn't get into it. The original doesn't really have that great of a reputation so I don't see why they remade it.
Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.
Nah...never saw either.

BD Horror News - 'Splice' Director Tells Reverse Ghost Story In 'Haunter'
I know it was as beloved as a hot shart, but I still think Splice, while flawed, was overall a good movie.Bloody Disgusting has exclusively learned that Splice and Cube director Vincenzo Natali will next go behind the camera and direct Haunter, a supernatural horror film lensing this March in Toronto.
Penned by Brian King, we're told that Haunter will be a kind of "reverse" ghost story. Instead of following the "haunted", the ghost flick will be told through the eyes of a spirit named Lisa, who, along with her family, died in 1986 under "sinister circumstances" but remain trapped in their house. Lisa haunts (and possesses) a young "living" girl by the name of "Olivia in an attempt to save her from the same fate.

BD Horror News - [Sundance 2012] A Super Dead Whale In Fresh 'Grabbers' Imagery!
This one automatically goes on the 'interested' list.H.P. Lovecraft. Is there anyone cooler in the world of horror? His slimy, creepy, creatures of the underworld are so hideous that they're beyond description. I'm an immediate sucker for anything related (which is probably why John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness and Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator are among my favorite horror films of all-time.)
Pegged as Waking Dead meets Tremors, with tentacles, Jon Wright directs the Irish horror comedy Grabbers that stars Richard Coyle, Ruth Bradley and Russell Tovey in a film that takes to "a sleepy Irish fishing village forced to fend off a blood-sucking sea creature."
With the creature feature premiering later this month as part of the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Bloody Disgusting has landed a whale of a "first official image" that can be enjoyed after the break. Those of you heading down to the fest, we've also included the screening times. Hope to catch you there!
