The new installment in the horror franchise follows a group of suspension bridge collapse survivors who fight for their lives a second time once Death realizes they got away.

The “Sexiest Woman Alive” Gets Bloody for “Nurse 3D”
Esquire named “30 Rock’s” Katrina Bowden the “Sexiest Woman Alive” this year, and now she’ll be sharing some of that provocative appeal in Lionsgate’s “Nurse 3D.” The film’s racy and red poster art recently titillated horror fans – featuring a naked Paz de la Huerta (“Boardwalk Empire”) in a nurse’s cap, dripping with blood. Naughty nurses takes on a whole new meaning in Douglas Aarniokoski’s film, which will feature Bowden and De la Huerta as caregivers who lure unfaithful men to their death.
Horror Legend Alfred Hitchcock’s Lost Film Uncovered
You can’t call yourself a horror fan unless you’ve taken the time to savor the suspenseful talents of the legendary Alfred Hitchcock. Movies like “Psycho” and “The Birds” are horror film school 101 for any fright fan’s education – and now a new movie by the maestro has been discovered. It’s being described as a “wild, atmospheric” melodrama starring Betty Compson as twin sisters – one good and one evil. “The White Shadow” was unearthed by The National Film Preservation Foundation and the New Zealand Film Archive who found the first 30 minutes of the 1923 British film. It’s considered to be the earliest feature that a 24-year-old Hitchcock worked on as editor, assistant director, writer, and production designer. The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ Samuel Goldwyn Theater in California will show the film on September 22.
“Kill List” Trailer Delivers Dark and Disturbing Thrills

For our friends across the pond, the movie makes its UK premiere at FrightFest on August 28.
“Paranormal Activity” Creator Nabs Director for New Fright Flick
Oren Peli of “Paranormal Activity” fame has found a director for his new, still untitled horror film.

Parker has commercial and FX credits to his name – working on films like “Fight Club” and the recent vamp remake “Let Me In” – but Peli was an unknown talent when he created a paranormal sensation with his 2007 film.
