From The Press Release:

Skybound is proud to announce OUTCAST, from Robert Kirkman and Paul Azaceta!

Outcast is the story of Kyle Barnes, a young man who has been plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a journey to find answers, but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.

Slated to come out early 2014 as a monthly comic release, Robert Kirkman promises a dramatic, realistic horror concept similar to THE WALKING DEAD. Fox International is currently developing a potential television series with Kirkman based off Outcast, which he has been working on for over 2 years. Despite his recent involvement in TV, Kirkman reassured us, “I still love comics, that is my main focus.”

NSFW: HELLISH IMAGERY FROM THE EXORCIST CHRONICLES

Whoa…another one has slipped under my radar? Directed by Philip Gardiner, who also assisted on the writing duties with Warren Croyle (who had the original concept) and Joe Micallef, the EXORCIST CHRONICLES looks like, from the little (or a lot, depending on your point of view) I’ve seen, like one incredibly vicious film. I’d heard rumblings about this UK exorcism flick, and with the glut of exorcism flicks coming out, I merely overlooked it. Big mistake on my part. Everything I see tells me: WATCH THIS THING NOW! I love the aesthetic, the symbology, the shadows, the blood effects…everything, but I’m pretty sure they’re still working on it…I’ll get on that. In the meantime we have a teaser trailer, a poster, and some VERY NSFW (courtesy HorrorMovies.ca) imagery from the film.

I’ll be getting in touch with the filmmakers as soon as possible to try and find out more about the film and stay up to dates when it comes to further news. What we know so far is very little (other than it looks amazing)… What we do know, plot-wise, is that across the world, demonic possessions are on the increase and two specialists are brought in and uncover a dark and terrifying worldwide demonic plot. The film stars Rudy Barrow, Liz Mente-Bishop, Nathan Head, Emma K Robins, Dave Samuels, Alex Reed, Rachel Malone, Jack Burrows, Jane Haslehurst, Bob Lee, Philip Berzamanis, and Kay Vardy.

The film just completed shooting in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire region.

The film is designed to set nerves jangling and drag the dark terrors that are usually hidden and suppressed deep in the human psyche right up to the forefront of the mind to rattle the audience. The makers promise us a movie unlike anything we’ve encountered before… Find out more on their official site and facebook page! And of course, keep checking back here for more information as we get it.

This is probably about the Safest For Work imagery I can show you. Check out the rest after the break…and trust me…it’s worth it. This looks like it’s going to be one amazingly wicked film from hell!  (more…)

LIONSGATE TO RELEASE ‘THE LAST EXORCISM’ (FORMERLY KNOWN AS ‘COTTON’)

I hadn’t really heard much about the Exorcist-meets-Blair Witch flick COTTON.  I happened upon this little story while browsing Shock Till You Drop:

Lionsgate has picked up the US distribution rights for the Eli Roth produced horror thriller The Last Exorcism (formally titled Cotton).

Helmed by German director Daniel Stamm, the cinema-verite style pic stars Patrick Fabian as a troubled evangelical minister who allows his final exorcism to be filmed by a documentary crew. (It’s the “found footage” formula with an exorcism.)

“It’s always great to work with our friend Eli, who has played a key role in establishing Lionsgate in the vanguard of the horror genre,” said Jason Constantine, Lionsgate’s prexy of acquisitions and co-productions. “The Last Exorcism feels as close to a real exorcism as anyone would ever want to get — audiences are going to find this movie scary as, well, hell.”

The Last Exorcism will premiere next month at SXSW in Austin, Texas. We’ll keep you posted on an official release date as soon as one is locked down.

With any luck, Eli Roth hasn’t tainted this flick by producing it.  I’d hate to see a director fail because his film wasn’t the way Lionsgate’s “good friend Eli” wanted it to turn out (i.e. shitcakes).
