Don't play hide-and-seek in this house.
The supernatural horror movie The Amityville Horror found huge success when it was released in 1979, sparking a franchise that ran out of steam around 1983's Amityville 3-D, though that didn't stop more sequels from being churned out for the next few decades. The 2005 remake did well financially, but failed to rejuvenate the haunted house franchise for a second time (even if there are a pair of Amityville movies either in the works or sitting on a shelf somewhere).
Perhaps director James Wan (Saw, Insidious) will have more success with The Conjuring (aka The Warren Files), an upcoming supernatural horror movie whose first trailer delivers with some legitimate scares. Part of the appeal of the Amityville movies was the fact that the original was based on the alleged real life experience of the Lutz family, and was investigated by married paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren, portrayed by Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson in The Conjuring. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.01.13 by Ryan
Earlier this month, Demi Moore was cast as feminist author Gloria Steinem in Lovelace, the biopic about the life and career of the late 1970's porn star Linda Lovelace. Only three weeks later, Moore has dropped out.
Moore's recent hospitalization was cited as the reason for the actress' sudden exit and her recovery will be keeping her busy. "Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," said Moore's rep in a statement to THR. "She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends."
Just as Moore has dropped out, Chloë Sevigny has joined the cast, THR separately reports. Sevigny will play a feminist journalist working for a men's magazine that is on assignment to uncover the real Lovelace (Amanda Seyfried). Livingston and Taylor to be haunted >> Posted 01.26.12 by Ryan
Brittany Murphy, Jason Lee, Giovanni Ribisi, Jim Broadbent, Eddie Izzard, Tim Roth, and Lili Taylor have signed on to join the cast of The Other Side. David Michaels is set to direct.
The fantasy comedy about a grad student who discovers an eccentric group of residents hiding a terrible secret when she is stationed on a remote northern island will start filming in Nova Scotia in November. Sounds like The Shipping News meets Waking Ned Devine to us...
...The Incredible Hulk is getting a boost in the form of Christina Cabot (Fight Club), who has signed on to join Edward Norton, Tim Roth, Liv Tyler, and William Hurt in the comic-inspired sequel to 2003's Hulk. Cabot will be playing an aide to Bruce-Banner-chaser, General Ross (Hurt)...
And finally, not only is there going to be an Ace Ventura 3, but it will star a kid. Twelve-year-old Josh Flitter, most recently seen as Robin Williams' creepy sidekick in License to Wed, has signed to star in the 'comedy,' which will follow Ace Ventura's son (Flitter) as he too becomes a pet detective who must find out who stole a baby panda to exonerate his wrongly-accused mother. Sounds like someone needed money to buy a new pool.
