Zac Locke’s “#FLOAT” Comes To Digital and VOD 12/9 from XYZ Films

Zac Locke FLOAT Comes To Digital and VODA survivor horror film about a lazy river trip gone wrong, #FLOAT is the directorial debut of writer-director Zac Locke.

The horror film from XYZ Films is set for release in VOD and digital platforms on December 9, 2022.

#FLOAT skillfully plays on classic tropes of ’80s slasher films – beautiful young, selfish people blithely ignore warnings about the dangers awaiting them and then get gruesomely killed off – while employing a modern sensibility.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Young, beautiful and full of life, vlogger Kali and her friends are heading to the river for their annual float, but it’s the first time since their friend overdosed and drowned last year. Their partying turns deadly as a sinister paranormal force plunges them into a life and death struggle forcing them to face their own fears as they turn on each other – and proceed to die one by one.

By Mandy

Patrick Wilson to direct Insidious sequel

Three new cast members were added to the ensemble of the upcoming Insidious 5 film: Hiam Abbas, Sinclair Daniel, and Peter Dager have all joined the cast.

After staying dormant for many years, and with some occasional development about the film also being released over the past few year, the film finally secured a summer 2023 release date last month.

The latest installment to the hugely successful supernatural horror franchise is set to be directed by Patrick Wilson in his directorial debut. Wilson, who starred on the first two installments of the franchise,
is also set to star in the upcoming sequel. Rose Byrne and Ty Simpkins are also set to reprise their roles as Renai Lambert and Dalton Lambert respectively.

Despite the death of her character in the first movie, Lin Shaye could also return as psychic Elise Rainier given her omni-presence in the series, possibly in a ghost form, along with her colleagues Specs and Tucker played by Leigh Whannell and Angus Sampson.

Last month, it was announced that the Untitled Insidious sequel from Blumhouse Productions is currently set for theatrical release on July 7, 2023, by Sony Pictures Releasing.

Insidious 5’s script is written by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills) and is based on a story from Leigh Whannell and Jason Blum. This will be the first time in the Insidious franchise that Whannell will not be writing the script.

Wilson was last seen in the science fiction disaster film Moonfall earlier this year.

Here’s the first synopsis as provided by Sony Pictures Releasing:
Set ten years after the end of previous first two films, Josh Lambert (Patrick Wilson) heads east to drop his son Dalton (Ty Simpkins) off at an idyllic, ivy-covered university. However, Dalton’s college dream becomes a nightmare when the repressed demons of his past suddenly return to haunt them both.

New Alien Comic Series With Xenomorphs To Launch In August

New Alien Comic Series With XenomorphsWriter Phillip Kennedy Johnson is set to continue his bold contributions to the world of ALIEN in an all-new comic series.

Featuring the incredible and terrifying artwork of rising star Julius Ohta, ALIEN #1 will kick off a new saga that will serve as a perfect entrypoint into the legendary horror/science-fiction franchise for newcomers and a must-read for longtime fans.

Packed with thrilling revelations and fresh insights into the ALIEN mythos, this new chapter promises to further explore the hard-hitting themes Johnson presented in the title’s first era as a new cast of characters must go deep into Xenomorph territory for a chance to combat human extinction. A small colony of synths have settled in secret on a backwater moon. When a company of United System soldiers come to them for help retrieving biotechnology on a hostile planet that could be the key to saving humanity, the synths must decide whether the prospect of peace between man and machine is worth the risk of betrayal.

“Writing season one of Marvel’s Alien was a horror fanboy’s dream come true,” Johnson said. “We got to tell exactly the story we wanted to tell, bringing horrific new species of Xenomorph to life while also exploring the themes of family and corporate distrust that are such a crucial part of the films. And as much as I loved our season one, we’re outdoing it in every way in the new series.”

“Julius Ohta is exceeding all expectations as series artist. Every background, every facial expression and emotion, and of course, all the environmental creepiness and full-on body horror is lovingly rendered by Julius, who is at the absolute TOP of his game right now. I can’t say enough great things about him. Fans are going to be truly spoiled. Stay tuned for one of the best, most beautiful Alien comics ever made.” For more info, visit marvel.com
