Teaser for Eli Roth's The Green Inferno consumes you

It's been a long time since Eli Roth directed a horror movie. He returns with a vengeance with The Green Inferno, which was acquired by Open Road Films at last year's Toronto International Film Festival.

And if you thought Roth couldn't top Cabin Fever and the Hostel films, think again -- this one's about cannibals baby!

V/H/S director might helm next Friday the 13th

Those rumours that the new Friday the 13th movie could go the found footage route might be true as word has it V/H/S and The Signal co-director David Bruckner is in talks to direct the next instalment in the famed horror franchise.

Bruckner wrote and directed the Amateur Night segment for V/H/S. His story involved three guys who bring a mysterious girl back to their hotel room, with terrifying results.

Agent Carter series likely for ABC

We last told you about Hayley Atwell's uber sexy Agent Carter in July, when the Captain American heroine starred in her own original short film, which appeared on the Iron Man 3 Blu-ray.

Having not seen the Agent Carter short, I can't speak to its quality, but I dig the character and the actress who plays her.

First trailer, poster surface for David Fincher's Gone Girl

David Fincher is hands down my favourite director, alive or dead. Not him of course. But, of all the directors who have lived and died, he's The Man.

So when The Man makes a new movie, I pay attention. And his latest, Gone Girl, promises to be more greatness from the guy who brought us Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac and the underrated The Game.

Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon lured to Bad Country

It's been a long time since I've watched a decent southern noir, and the upcoming crime flick Bad Country looks like it'll fit the bill.

I admit I'm a bit startled by the fact the early 80s make the film a period piece. That's within my lifetime after all, so I guess I've been around a while. Ha!

Suzanne Cappelletti versus Oculus

Thursday night after much deliberation and a few beers to numb my better judgement, I got tickets for Oculus.

I was a little surprised at how empty the theatre was. Maybe 40 bodies in the seats max. I was taken in by the minimal ad campaign with the stories of the mirror and the tragedies involved. Lately, trailers seem to give away every key detail and take the jump scares away, so needless to say, I was intrigued.

Jason versus Phantasm II

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cemetery, The Tall Man and Don Coscarelli's weird-ass horror franchise return to drive balls through your skulls.

Sounds kinda perverse when put that way, doesn't it?

Mike, now released from a psychiatric hospital, continues his journey to stop the evil Tall Man and his grim work.

Found-footage horror gets Indigenous

That's right, yet another found-footage movie. The twist with Indigenous is the footage involves the legendary, and potentially real, Chupacabra.

No, the blood sucking fiend isn't behind the camera. It's trying to suck the blood of the people shooting the alleged found footage.

Jason versus Enter the Ninja

Enter the Ninja was the first R-rated movie my parents let me watch. It also started my lifelong fascination with ninjas and made Sho Kosugi one of the biggest martial arts stars of the 80s. That's a lot of baggage for one movie to carry. How does it hold up 33 years on? Stick with me!

After completing his training in the ways of the ninja, an army vet travels to the Phillippines and finds himself battling a land grabber who wants his war buddy's property.
