Interactive Haunted House Movie Coming from Crawl Director Alexandre Aja & Amblin
Crawl helmer and horror genre star Alexandre Aja has just lined up his next project for Steven Spielberg's Amblin Partners, and it's oddly enough going to be an Interactive Haunted House Movie. This means that it will be an interactive horror movie with a branched narrative, reminiscent of those choose-your-own-adventure novels. Based on an idea by Howard and Mike Flanagan (Doctor Sleep), the screenplay is written by Aja, Jeff Howard (The Haunting of Hill House), and Nick Simon (The Girl in the Photographs). Chady Eli Mattar and Scott C. Silver of Kino Industries are producing, with Aja executive producing along with partner Greg Levasseur and Kino's Tobias Webber. Jeb Brody and John Buderwitz are overseeing on behalf of Amblin.

So, here's how this interactive horror movie is apparently going to work. Using an app filmgoers can download on their cell phones and similar devices, people in each theater and

David Slade on directing ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ interactive film: ‘No one had ever done this before’ [Red Carpet Video]

David Slade on directing ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ interactive film: ‘No one had ever done this before’ [Red Carpet Video]
“Oh no, I wouldn’t do that. Why would you want to interact with television?” That was David Slade‘s response when the “Black Mirror” showrunners Annabel Jones and Charlie Brooker approached him to direct their interactive movie “Bandersnatch,” Slade recounts to Gold Derby on the red carpet for a recent Emmy event hosted by Netflix. Slade explains, “The bad news was no one had ever done this before and the good news was that no one had ever done this before.”

SEEour previous interview with producer Russell McLean.

“I’m not going to make it look like your TV show. Is that okay?” That was Slade’s response when the showrunners approached him to direct an episode of the fourth season a year earlier. His episode titled “Metalhead” upended the “Black Mirror” esthetic as its only black-and-white installment to date and “Bandersnatch” represented another departure for the anthology — and television altogether.

Interview: Director David Slade Discusses the Emotional Journey of This Way To Egress and Reteaming with Elizabeth Reaser for Nightmare Cinema

From Hard Candy to 30 Days of Night to the Hannibal TV series and Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, David Slade has been giving viewers thought-provoking nightmare fuel for years, making him the perfect choice to be one of the five directors in the new film Nightmare Cinema. With the horror anthology out now in theaters and VOD platforms, Daily Dead talked with Slade about his segment, This Way to Egress, including the short film's emotional journey to getting made, working with writer Lawrence C. Connolly to adapt his short story, and reteaming with Elizabeth Reaser.

Thanks for taking the time to talk, David, and congratulations on Nightmare Cinema and your short, This Way To Egress. I like how Nightmare Cinema is this grab bag of different nightmarish horror shorts, and yours is really interesting to me because it is so psychological and yet it is so visceral, too.

Maurice Benard Previews His Scary New Horror Movie, "Nightmare Cinema" (Exclusive)

The flick is screening in limited release at select theaters and is also available on demand. "If you're into horror, you'll love it to death," the actor declared when chatting about it to Soaps In Depth. Benard was thrilled to share scenes with Rourke. (Photo Credit: Cinelou Films) The anthology centers around five strangers who converge at a haunted movie theater owned by The Projectionist, played by Mickey Rourke. This allows the film to split into five different segments, each helmed by different directors, including Joe Dante, Alejandro Brugués, David Slade, and Mick Garris. Benard appears in "Mashit" from director Ryuhei Kitamura as Father Benedict,

‘Nightmare Cinema’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Mickey Rourke, Sarah Withers, Faly Rakotohavana, Maurice Benard, Elizabeth Reaser, Zarah Mahler, Mark Grossman, Eric Nelsen, Richard Chamberlain, Adam Godley, Annabeth Gish | Written by Lawrence C. Connolly, David Slade, Alejandro Brugués, Richard Christian Matheson, Sandra Becerril, Mick Garris | Directed by Mick Garris, Alejandro Brugues, Joe Dante, Ryuhei Kitamura, David Slade

Mick Garris, Joe Dante and David Slade are among the horror directors contributing to Nightmare Cinema, an entertaining anthology in the spirit of Garris’ Masters of Horror TV show. The stories themselves have a surprisingly high hit rate, but the film is let down by its poorly thought-out linking concept. The set-up is almost too simple, taking the title entirely literally. When random people walk past the well-lit-but-seemingly-abandoned Rialto cinema, they see their name appear on the marquee. Intrigued, they enter the cinema, where a creepy projectionist (Mickey Rourke as The Projectionist) shows them a film that features their death.

Film Review: ‘Nightmare Cinema’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Nightmare Cinema’
Writer, producer, director and horror mega-fan Mick Garris assembles a cadre of like minds to create “Nightmare Cinema.” This anthology feature is basically a two-hour, big-screen version of the several macabre TV anthology series he’s been involved with since the mid-’80s “Amazing Stories.” Comprising five directors’ tales linked by the inimitable Mickey Rourke as a diabolical projectionist, this feature falls short of Garris’ greatest effort in that vein: His all-star 2005-07 cable pet project “Masters of Horror.” Each segment here has strengths and weaknesses. If there are no outright duds, there’s no real triumph either. But the whole is certainly diverse, lively and reference-packed enough to please horror fans attracted to this kind of enterprise, which are so often (see last year’s “Tales From the Hood 2”) so, so much worse. Cranked Up Films is releasing to 25 U.S. screens and on demand June 21.

Review: Bit is a Timely, Important Horror Classic in the Making

When it comes to the vampire subgenre of horror, it's safe to say that by now, we've seen every take under the sun. From the Bela Lugosi portrayal in Dracula, all the way to the sparkly, angst-filled Twilight vamps, it's been done and with varying results. It's hard to make a good vampire film and when it Is done right, we're given films like Joel Schumacher's The Lost Boys. A bloodsucker-filled entry that to this day is considered one of the best vampire films of all time, The Lost Boys gave its viewers an experience that simply can't be rivaled.

While we've since received a handful of great vampire films, such as Larry Fessenden's Habit or David Slade's 30 Days of Night, very few films have captured that punk rock, Idgaf attitude that Schumacher's film confidently displayed... very few films, until now. Daily Dead readers, I am

Paul Wesley to Lead Tell Me A Story Season 2 on CBS All Access

This is terrific news!

Paul Wesley did some of his best work on Tell Me A Story Season 1 as one of the "three pigs" in an allegory of Three Little Pigs that intertwined with Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel.

Wesley's Eddie Longo was a low-level thief who got messed up in a bad situation that left him vulnerable and in way over his head. As you can read in my reviews of the season, his performance was riveting.

Created by Kevin Williamson, Tell Me A Story takes the world’s most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller.

Exploring a whole new set of fairy tales and characters each season, season two of the series will feature the tales of three legendary princesses – Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella – like you’ve never seen them before.

‘Acute Misfortune’ director Thomas M. Wright is a man of many parts

Thomas M. Wright.

Thomas M. Wright cheerfully acknowledges he is far better known in the Us and the UK than in his native Australia.

That’s because the character actor, who made his feature writing and directing debut on Acute Misfortune, has worked predominantly in international TV series and movies in the past six years.

Wright flies to Quebec next month for his next acting gig, a recurring role in Barskins, a National Geographic drama series based on the Annie Proulx novel about a group of outcasts living in New France — the part of North America controlled by the French — in the 16th century.

That will be his third Us series following Wgn America’s Outsiders and FX network’s The Bridge, and his first acting gig since he played racist station owner Mick Kennedy in Warwick Thornton’s Sweet Country.

Wright is not complaining about his relatively low profile

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’: How It Could Have Been Even Weirder

‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’: How It Could Have Been Even Weirder
Many filmmakers try to find new ways to tell a story, but few get the chance offered by “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.” Late last year, this installment of the Netflix anthology presented viewers a chance to control the narrative about a mid-1980s computer programmer hitting the limits of reality while working on an innovative new game.

While Netflix opted to prompt viewers with simple keyword captions on the screen’s lower third, director David Slade said his initial idea was a little more abstract.

“I remember at the very beginning trying to sell Charlie [Brooker] on a version with no text at all,” Slade said at a Q&A after a screening at a Netflix FYSee screening in Hollywood May 31. “The ‘David Lynch’ version, where you’ll get to a point in the narrative and see a series of images and if you click during one of those images, it’ll take you somewhere else.
