Fresh off the Slab Horror Movie News July 20, 2013: ‘Riddick’, ‘Nothing Left to Fear’, and ‘Insidious 2’


San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) has premiered a slew of horror movie trailers and you can find some of the best here. On top of that, there seems to be a bunch of horror movie news popping up!  Hope you enjoy!


A new Red Band Trailer was released after the  SDCC official Riddick panel for third film in the Riddick franchise. The film was written and directed by David Twohy and is slated for a September 6 release. The movie stars Diesel, Karl Urban, Jordi Molla, Matt Nable, Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, Dave Bautista, Conrad Pla, Raoul Trujillo, Nolan Funk and Keri Hilson.

Riddick, the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000’s hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick reunites writer/director David Twohy (A Perfect Getaway, The Fugitive) and star Vin Diesel (the Fast and Furious franchise, xXx). Diesel reprises his role as the antihero Riddick, a dangerous, escaped convict wanted by every bounty hunter in the known galaxy.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty.

The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.

Nothing Left to Fear
Nothing Left to Fear is the tale of a family whose journey towards a better life in a small town is savagely derailed by a charismatic but emotionally conflicted man of the cloth. The movie is based on the actual town of Stull, Kansas, which is surrounded by Internet folklore proclaiming the town to be one of the seven gateways to Hell.
Scheduled to hit select theaters on October 4th and a Blu-ray/DVD release on October 8th, the film was directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Slash’s Slasher Films. The film stars Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption, John Dies at the End), Anne Heche (Psycho, Rampart), James Tupper (Mr Popper’s Penguins), Jennifer Stone (Wizards of Waverly Place), Ethan Peck (In Time), and Rebekah Brandes (Bellflower).
The trailer is introduced by the man himself: Slash of Guns N Roses fame.
