Hammer Films and John Pogue‘s The Quiet Ones (2014) will be released in movie theaters this upcoming April 25, 2014 in the US and April 11, 2014 in the UK so here is the latest movie poster. The poster is meant to be creepy but I give it a 6 out 10 score as movie posters go. I really like the story so far and enjoyed the movie trailer so I am really hoping that the finished movie is executed well. The Quiet Ones stars Jared Harris, Sam Claflin and Olivia Cooke.
Tod “Kip” Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) will be directing Stephen King’s Cell movie adaptation. Set to star are John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson plus new addition as female lead Isabelle Fuhrman (Orphan, The Hunger Games) to play Alice. Fuhrman will join Cusack and Jackson’s characters after “The Pulse” in order to leave Boston. “The Pulse” causes people to turn into zombies. I read the horror novel way back in 2006 and enjoyed the read.
Sam Raimi‘s Darkman to get a Blu-ray release thanks to Scream Factory this upcoming February 18, 2014. The Darkman Blu-ray will feature interviews with Liam Neeson, Frances McDormand, Larry Drake and Sam Raimi. I grew up watching Darkman and really liked it, I think it is time to watch this classic again.

Big horror directors like Joe Dante, Xavier Gens and Timo Vuorensola have collaborated on a new horror anthology movie names Fear Paris. Unlike most other horror anthologies, Fear Paris short movies/stories are all connected to each other. Fear Paris will go into production this summer/fall and casting has already started. I like how the opening sequence the colored lights set a nice tone. Next i like how the mimes are taking out the other guys with make believe weapons that actually turn into cool weapons. The feel and tone of the the movie looks very stylized. I get the feel of movies like 300 and Sin City in the way the scenes are shot and the special effects that were added.
