Toolbox Murders 2 synopsis: "Thought you saw the whole nail-biting, gut-wrenching story? Think again.

The handyman of horror is back with a new box of tricks in Toolbox Murders 2, a terrifying sequel to Tobe Hooper's 2004 reimagining of the 1978 cult favorite. Picking up directly after the events of Hooper's shocking film, Toolbox Murders 2 ratchets up the terror as it follows one of Hollywood's most twisted killers. Resurfacing in the darkest corners of the L.A. underworld with a serious axe to grind, the killer hammers out a plan to put the screws to a new victim: Samantha, the sister of his prey from his previous rampage. Soon Samantha finds herself held captive in a house of horrors and forced to undergo the most unspeakable tortures… with little hope of escape.

Starring Chauntal Lewis, Brian Krause, Chris Doyle, and two-time Academy Award® nominee* Bruce Dern, Toolbox Murders 2 will disturb even the most level-headed fright fan while pushing every envelope imaginable and drilling shocking imagery into their minds!

Although a sequel to the ZombiU video game never materialized, the living dead franchise will soon spread its reach to new gamers. Beginning August 18th, ZombiU—formerly a Wii U exclusive—will be available to download digitally on next-gen consoles and PC under its new title, Zombi.

Press Release (via Gamasutra): "LONDON, UK — July 30, 2015 — Today, Ubisoft ® announced the development of ZOMBI, an upgrade of the acclaimed survival-horror game, coming as a digital download for the PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC on August 18, 2015.

After being one of the Wii U™ flagship titles in 2012, ZOMBI returns to challenge gamers on multiple new platforms to find out how long they can survive in dilapidated, infected London. For the second time in history, a great plague has shrouded the city in a fog of death. Thousands have died, or worse, been infected by a sickness more gruesome than death. Once again, this fear-fueled first-person shooter invites all players to dive into the horror, chaos and tension found in the best of the genre. The nail-biting survival experience has been optimized for PlayStation ®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC, using the power of the latest generation of hardware to bring gamers to a new level of horror.

Players will experience the original oppressive and intense elements that made ZombiU so innovative. The bug-out bag is a necessary component for survival for each player as it contains all the player’s tools, inventory, first aid kits, maps and more. With permadeath, players are faced with a death mechanic which puts them in the body of a different survivor each time they die. In order to retain the equipment they previously gathered in their bug-out bag, they are forced to track down their old, infected character. Should players risk it all to get their bag back or start scavenging anew?

Kurt Russell, Matthew Fox, and more star in the horror Western Bone Tomahawk, the closing film of Fantastic Fest 2015. Karyn Kusama's The Invitation is also included in the first wave of programming for the Austin-based festival that kicks off September 24th.

Press Release: "Austin, TX - Thursday, July 30, 2015 - Fantastic Fest announces the first wave programming lineup for its 11th annual celebration of exciting genre-bending films, including the World Premiere of BONE TOMAHAWK with Kurt Russell and Matthew Fox in attendance, a retrospective of Turkish Genre Cinema, and a special Mondo Gallery event and programming series curated by filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn to celebrate the release of his new book Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing, which profiles Refn's collection of vintage exploitation-era American movie posters. "We're very excited about this year's mix of premieres, unique events and a retrospective theme unlike any other featuring audacious and otherworldly Turkish remakes of classic Hollywood films," said Fantastic Fest founder Tim League.

See the full list of first wave films below and stay tuned for news on more films and events in the weeks to come. Fantastic Fest takes place September 24 - October 1 in Austin, TX at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar.

S. Craig Zahler's existential horror western BONE TOMAHAWK closes out what guarantees to be another furious week of chaos with the director and film's ensemble cast descending on Austin. "Bringing Kurt Russell back to the Alamo is something we've been trying to do for a long time" said League, "And to do it with BONE TOMAHAWK, a quintessential Fantastic Fest film, means we're in for one hell of a closer.  Huge thanks to Caliber Media for making it all happen."

Turkish genre cinema is at the heart of this year's Fantastic Fest, inspiring both feature programming and the festival theme. This relatively unknown school of '70s renegade filmmaking is explored in REMIX, REMAKE, RIP-OFF, which will be receiving its U.S. Premiere with director Cem Kaya in attendance. ''We are delighted to be digging deep into Turkish cinema for a journey of discovery," said Fantastic Fest Head Programmer, Evrim Ersoy. "With its 'filmmaking-at-any-cost' mentality, the sheer insanity of Turkish cinema is a perfect match for Fantastic Fest."

As part of the Turkish celebration, Fantastic Fest will be screening three seminal films, DÜNYAYI KURTARAN ADAM (aka THE MAN WHO SAVES THE WORLD, aka TURKISH STAR WARS) , YILMAYAN ŞEYTAN (aka THE DEATHLESS DEVIL) and TARKAN VİKİNG KANI (aka TARKAN VS THE VIKINGS). The screenings will be complemented by the attendance of iconic Turkish filmmaker Çetin İnanç and moviestar Kunt Tulgar. "Due to the high cost of exhibiting American movies, Turkish filmmakers created their own versions of these classics, and with it a new universe of madcap cinema was born. I'm proud to say we've selected some of their wildest rides." said Ersoy. In keeping with the Turkish spirit, this year's poster is comprised exclusively of elements from classic Turkish movie art, of which there will be over 60 original movie posters on display at the festival.

Filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn shares his unique collection of rare American exploitation movie posters in the lush new hardcover book Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing. Three of the films featured in the book - FAREWELL UNCLE TOM, THE X-RATED SUPERMARKET and MY BODY HUNGERS - were selected by Refn to screen during the opening weekend of Fantastic Fest, followed by a Q&A and book signing.
The Mondo Gallery, located at 4115 Guadalupe Street, will be hosting a special exhibit showcasing 15 of the original posters featured in Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing, plus a brand new limited edition poster by artist Jay Shaw inspired by the book and created specifically for the gallery show. Refn will be on hand to sign copies of the book at the gallery during the opening reception on Friday, September 25th. The exhibit will run September 25th - September 27th.
"Being a massive fan of Austin, Texas, I consider it a great privilege to join forces with Fantastic Fest and the Mondo gallery to host the exclusive U.S. debut of

Nicolas Winding Refn: The Act of Seeing," said filmmaker Nicolas Winding Refn. "I'm excited to show the world this odyssey of rare and exclusive poster art at the festival alongside screenings of some of the films that inspired it."

The living dead will be back to invade Orlando and Hollywood this fall, as respective The Walking Dead mazes will be featured at Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood, with the latter hosting The Walking Dead: Wolves Not Far maze:

Press Release (via Universal / AMC / PR Newswire): "UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. and ORLANDO, Fla., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The nation's insatiable appetite for AMC's "The Walking Dead" will continue to terrify Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort when the most intense moments from season 5 of the critically-acclaimed, Emmy Award®-winning television series take a bite out of "Halloween Horror Nights," beginning Friday, September 18, 2015.

Attempts to evade the terror of the undead and the inhumane brutality of mankind will be the underlying theme of these mazes as guests navigate authentic three-dimensional recreations of one of television's most talked about shows, "The Walking Dead."

Following in the footsteps of "The Walking Dead" cast, guests will begin their journey at the Terminus safe-haven compound, where an unspeakable hunger has consumed the demented souls of those dwelling within. As the chaos ensues, guests will encounter even greater atrocities as they stumble upon dismembered "W" walkers, witness the horror of victims besieged by the living dead, and step onto the loading dock of the Del Arno Food warehouse to face hordes of "W" walkers.

"I couldn't be more delighted to continue and expand 'The Walking Dead' universe with Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando than by having fans experience some of the most harrowing and suspenseful moments of our show," said Greg Nicotero, executive producer and special effects makeup supervisor for "The Walking Dead."  "'Halloween Horror Nights' is the gold standard to which all other Halloween-themed events try to emulate, so to bring authentic walkers to this event, alongside other horror greats, is the ultimate thrill."

"We love giving fans of 'The Walking Dead' as many ways as possible to experience the series, so we're thrilled to be collaborating once again with the teams at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando on these mazes that really bring the intensity of the show to life," said Theresa Beyer, senior vice president of promotion, activation and partnerships for AMC. "We're excited to have fans come face to face with some of the most memorable and shocking scenes of season 5."

This year, when Universal Studios Hollywood introduces the all-original "The Walking Dead: Wolves Not Far," it will come to life as the biggest, longest, most gruesome maze ever built at the West Coast destination of "Halloween Horror Nights." This all-new experience will feature twice as many, never-before-seen walkers and will be situated within an entirely new theme park location.

"Just like the fans who wait anxiously for the next episode or season return of 'The Walking Dead,' this phenom of a show has become a 'Halloween Horror Nights' tradition and our guests look forward to a new 'Walking Dead' maze each year," said John Murdy, Creative Director at Universal Studios Hollywood and Executive Producer of "Halloween Horror Nights."  "We're fortunate to have the expertise of the show's creative team working collaboratively with us to create an authentic living representation of the series, and for fans, our maze experience is the next best thing to living in the aftermath of a zombie apocalypse."

At Universal Orlando Resort, "The Walking Dead" will feature hordes of walkers and eerily recreate the scenes, settings and terror that guests have seen on their TV screens.  The twisted minds of Universal Orlando's Halloween Horror Nights team are using first-ever tactics to bring the horror of season 5 to life in this year's maze – even placing guests in the iconic flooded food bank scene where they'll be surrounded by hundreds of gallons of water as flesh-hungry walkers attack.

"We've been fortunate to recreate many horrific moments over the past few years, and as the series raises its own bar every season, so have we with our environments," said Michael Aiello, Director of Creative Development for Universal Orlando's Entertainment team.  "Faithfully representing season 5 has brought with it all-new elements, and we will literally place our guests in the lead role as they escape hordes of walkers."

Universal's "Halloween Horror Nights" is the ultimate in extreme Halloween events. For more than 20 years, guests from around the world have visited "Halloween Horror Nights" in Orlando and Hollywood to become victims of their own horror movie.

Gigante-620-01

Giving UK horror fans yet another reason to attend their scare-packed festival, the fine folks at Film4 FrightFest have announced their short film lineup that features over thirty shorts, including the cannibalistic wrestling tale, El Gigante:

Press Release: "Film4 FrightFest 2015 has expanded its Short Film Showcase event, with three strands and over thirty shorts from around the world, including eleven World Premieres and seven European Premieres. With films from thirteen countries, this is the most diverse and exciting shorts event yet programmed. 

Highlights include the London premiere of actress Karen Gillan’s intense directorial debut COWARD, and the UK premiere of SHEVENGE, a darkly funny tale of revenge, directed by BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER alum Amber Benson. Local FrightFest alumni will also be returning: screenwriter and director James Moran is back with screams and laughter in GHOSTING, and Dan Auty brings us nostalgia and magic children in his new short PARTY 85. We will also be featuring the World premiere of SURGERY, the frightening new short by The Clemens Bros, sons of legendary UK screenwriter Brian Clemens, as well as the world premieres of THE ALPHA INVENTION, a chilling sci-fi short starring Billy Boyd and DARK.NET starring Johnny Vegas. Additional highlights include Mike Williamson (IN THE WALL) returning to FrightFest with the World Premiere of his new short DEATHLY, featuring a score by composer Clint Mansell (MOON/ REQUIEM FOR A DREAM) and THE LAKE directed by 14 year old Nathan Ambrosioni, who also has his feature HOSTILE playing in our Discovery Strand

Spain features prominently with five shorts in the selection, including multi-award-winning TUNING OSCAR, a twisted romantic comedy by Mikel Alvariño, the experimental dance-horror YOU WILL FALL AGAIN, and DISCO INFERNO, the Giallo-inspired fever dream by Alice Waddington.

This year’s selection also features a record nine shorts directed by women, including the hilarious VINTAGE BLOOD by Abigail Blackmore (starring Indira Varma), the disturbing SEND IN THE CLOWNS by Kate Shenton, the side-splitting A FAVOUR by Izzy Lee, and the creepy thriller TWO MISSING by Claire Fowler. 

PLUS!

For the first time ever, this year Film4 FrightFest will premiere six horror –themed short films from the brand new All4, which replaces 4OD.

The series, entitled A Moment of Horror, consists of six individual episodes and will premiere throughout the festival. All films will then be available exclusively on All 4 at www.all4.com/shorts.

The creepy encounters in the series include the tale of a young mother who discovers she feeds something much more sinister than her own baby; a janitor who notices the doors he closes on his nightshift never remain shut; and an anxiety sufferer whose troubles take a physical form during a bath-time black out. A Moment of Horror will disturb your perception of the mundane, and plant images in your head that will make you think twice before turning off the light at night…

FrightFest Short Film Programmer Shelagh Rowan-Legg said today "We are thrilled with the short films programmed this year, with 31 titles from Europe, North America and the Middle East. These films show the incredible diversity of fantastic genre cinema, from gory horror to creepy thrillers to chilling science fiction to moody experimental, with films that are both live action featuring amazing actors, and stunning stop-motion animation. FrightFest audiences have the opportunity to see emerging talents as well as regular favourites."

If you survived the living dead-strewn streets of Harran and are itching to explore some new terrain in the zombified video game world of Dying Light, then you should be excited by Techland's recent announcement of an expansion pack titled Dying Light: The Following.

The release date for Dying Light: The Following has yet to be revealed, but based on the new screenshot and the brief footage at the end of the "Half a Year with Dying Light" video below, gamers can expect dune buggies, open terrain, and zombies aplenty. Also, season pass holders will get to play Dying Light: The Following for free. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

Press Release (via Evil Avatar): July 29th, 2015 – Wroclaw, Poland/ In last week’s "Half a Year with Dying Light" video, Techland teased drivable all-terrain dirt buggies for Dying Light. Today Techland has confirmed that it is indeed working on Dying Light: The Following – a feature-heavy, story-based expansion pack.

“For Dying Light: The Following we’re adding a number of bold game-changers to create one massive expansion. Something big that will give the game a brand-new flavor. The new map alone is the same size as all the previous maps from Dying Light combined, so there is a lot we’re packing in here.

We also kept a close eye on player feedback to help tailor what we’ve created here. Hopefully people will see that this new expansion is first and foremost, for the fans.”
– Tymon Smektala, producer, Dying Light: The Following

Techland announced that Dying Light: The Following will be available for purchase separately but will also be made free to all Season Pass holders. The expansion pack is set to be showcased behind closed doors at Gamescom next month, with a full public reveal following shortly after.
