The House With A Clock In Its Walls

The House with a Clock in Its Walls
Director: Eli Roth
Writer: Eric Kripke
Cast: Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Renée Elise Goldsberry, and Sunny Suljic
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | Minutes: 104
Release Date: September 21, 2018

The House with a Clock in Its Walls is Eli Roth‘s first foray into children’s films. Based on the 1973 novel of the same name by John Bellairs, the film is a first-time collaboration between the filmmaker and Amblin Entertainment.

Normally, the spirit of Amblin films and Roth’s horror influence would make for an interesting combination. But the result is an odd concoction of mixed feelings and a film that, at times, can feel like it is at war with itself. Check out the full review below.

The House With A Clock In Its Walls

Universal Studios has released the second trailer for The House with a Clock in Its Walls. The family friendly horror comedy is directed by Eli Roth and stars Jack Black as an eccentric uncle who also happens to be a warlock, and Cate Blanchett as his witchy neighbor who is as charming and equally mystifying.

The film is actually based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, which is about a young boy who accidentally awakens the dead, and it is up to the strange town of witches and warlocks to rally together to put them to rest. Check out the latest trailer as well as a new poster below.

The House With A Clock In Its Wall

Eli Roth collaborating with Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment is something that you’d think would never happen in a million years. One dives into the world of horrors beyond anyone’s imagination and the other explores the world of imagination. But with the right material, the two could be paired nicely. That’s what we are getting with Roth’s adaptation of The House with a Clock in Its Walls.

Based on John Bellairs‘ children story, with illustrations by Edward Gorey, the film follows Lewis (Owen Vaccaro), who moves into his uncle’s (Jack Black) creepy old house with a mysterious ticking clock and ends up accidentally waking up the dead. Check out the full trailer below.

78/52 Trailer - Hitchcock's Psycho Doc

If you ever needed more proof of just how important director Alfred Hitchcock is to filmmaking and film history, somebody made an entire documentary dedicated solely to one single scene from one of his movies. It also happens to be one of the most renowned scenes ever filmed.

I’m talking of course about the shower scene from Hitchcock’s 1960 horror classic, Psycho. The title of the doc, 78/52, refers to the 78 camera shots and 52 edits that went into crafting the scene. It was directed by Alexandre O. Philippe, and includes Guillermo del Toro, Bret Easton Ellis, Jamie Lee Curtis, Eli Roth, Peter Bogdanovich, and others dissecting and discussing the unforgettable sequence.

A new trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below along with a previously released trailer which involves the brutal stabbing of a bunch of fruit.

Trailer For Horror Flick ‘Clown’ From Jon Watts, Eli Roth

Clown Directed by Jon Watts, Produced by Eli Roth

Clowns and horror go together very well. Many people have a fear of the colorful characters ranging from just being unsettled by them to having a full-blown phobia of them, so it’s very easy to use them in telling scary stories. We’ve seen them used in a wide variety of horrors over the years from purely terrifying in Stephen King’s It, to cheesy in Killer Klowns from Outer Space, to more comical in Stitches (which you should definitely consider watching on Netflix or elsewhere if you’ve never seen it and you’re into horrors that don’t take themselves seriously) and much more.

As for the simply titled Clown, which is directed by Cop Car and the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming director Jon Watts and produced by Cabin Fever and Hostel director Eli Roth, the goal is clearly to give people some nightmares. A trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below.

Movie Review: The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno
Director: Eli Roth
Screenwriter: Eli Roth, Guillermo Amoedo
Cast: Lorenza Izzo, Ariel Levy, Sky Ferreira, Nicolas Martinez, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Aaron Burns
Universal Pictures | Blumhouse
Rated R | 121 Minutes
Release Date: September 25, 2015

Finally, after two years of waiting, Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno has reached theaters. Roth burst onto the horror scene back in 2002 with the low budget Cabin Fever, about a group of friends whose fun small town weekend is ruined by crazy local hillbillies and a flesh eating virus. His offbeat sense of humor and gross-out effects signaled that he was a force to be reckoned with. Then came 2005’s Hostel, and its superior 2007 sequel which garnered notoriety and helped coin the phrase “torture porn.” He has since collaborated with Quentin Tarantino (!), and been busy producing horror films and TV projects.

In 2013, Roth completed The Green Inferno, his tribute to his favorite movie – Ruggero Deodato’s notorious 1980 Cannibal Holocaust. That film caused such a stir that director Deodato was arrested on suspicion that he actually killed his crew, and had to demonstrate scenes in court. It is still banned in parts of the world. A squabble between film distributors left Roth’s pet project in limbo, until Blumhouse Productions swooped in as saviors and here we are.

Eli Roth Talks Using CG For Giant Shark Movie ‘MEG’

MEG: A Novel of Deep Terror

While many immediately cringe at the mention of CG effects being used in a movie, it’s hard to find a movie these days that doesn’t use them one way or another. The best we can hope for is the use of both practical and digital effects hand-in-hand, with more of the former visibly noticeable.

But sometimes CG is simply unavoidable. One such example of this is MEG, which features a giant megalodon shark. If you’re even a little familiar with JAWS and how much trouble Steven Spielberg had working with a mechanical shark for that, you understand how insane it would be to build and film a practical shark the size of a freakin’ city bus or bigger. The movie has been in the works for many years, and is currently in the middle of another attempt at finally making its way to the big screen with the recent news that Cabin Fever and Hostel director Eli Roth was set to make the movie for Warner Brothers. Roth spoke recently about using CG for the movie, and you can see what he had to say below.
