Horror - 8/8 - Big Story Group
“The Quiet Ones” is inspired by true events when a 1974 team of Oxford University students led by a daring professor venture into a ghost-hunting research project. His unorthodox ideas are based on the theory that paranormal activity is caused by human negative energy. As the student scientists perform a series of tests on a young patient, she is pushed to the edge of sanity. The fatal mix of curiosity and theory unleashes a poltergeist of negative energy.
“Nosferatu” is the 1922 F.W. Murnau masterpiece of German expressionist horror, and one of the earliest and most unsettling vampire films in history. This unauthorized adaptation of Bram Stoker’s novel, with Max Schrek as the Count Orlok, continues to influence the style and atmosphere of horror films. An HD edition mastered from the acclaimed 35mm restoration by the Friedrich-Wilhelm-Murnau-Stiftung, backed by an orchestral performance of Hans Erdmann’s 1922 score, offers unprecedented visual clarity and historical faithfulness to the original release version. Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror (1922) will be available November 19, 2013 with special content. Return to Thumbnail View.(Larger Player)
“Paranormal Activity – The Marked Ones” is the next in a series of found-footage films about…paranormal activity. A couple believes their house is haunted when the young man finds a strange bruise.

Written and directed by Christopher Landon. Starring Andrew Jacobs, Carlos Pratts and Jorge Diaz. Releases January 2014. Return to Thumbnail View.(Larger Player)
“Escape from Tomorrow” is the story of a middle-aged American husband and father of two who learns that he has lost his job. He decides to keep the news from his wife and children and packs them off on a full day of enchanted castles and fairy tale princesses at the theme park. Soon the idyllic family vacation unravels into a surrealist nightmare of paranoid visions, bizarre encounters, and an obsessive pursuit of a pair of sexy teenage Parisians. Shot in black and white, Escape from Tomorrow dissects the mythology of artificial perfection while subversively attacking our culture’s obsession with mass entertainment.
Directed by Randy Moore. Starring Roy Abramsohn, Elena Schuber, Katelynn Rodriguez, Annet Mahendru and Danielle Safady. Released Oct. 11, 2013. Return to Thumbnail View.
