Panic panic! Terrifying trailer for new horror ‘The Den’ will give you shivers



Holy crap, where the Hell did this come from? A trailer went on-line this week for a chilling looking new horror film called The Den, and yes this looks really really interesting, and extremely dark.

It looks to be using the Skype approach, and see’s a series of horrific murders and mind games used to what looks like seriously scary effect. What also really excited me in the trailer is the site of horror legend Bill Oberst Jr, as I was 100% convinced I saw him appear for all of a second in the trailer. Upon checking IMDB, yes the busiest man in horror in indeed listed in the cast! Result!

The Den is written and directed by Zachary Donohue, with Lauren Thompson on co-writing duties. The cast includes Melanie Papalia, Adam Shapiro, David Schlactenhaufen and Matt Riedy the movie hits VOD and limited theaters in the US on March 14th, 2014.


After receiving a grant for her graduate thesis, Elizabeth Benton (Melanie Papalia) logs onto a video-chat site known as THE DEN, on a mission to explore the habits of its users. During one of her random video-chats, Elizabeth watches in horror as a teenage girl is gruesomely murdered in front of her webcam. While the police dismiss it as a viral prank, Elizabeth believes what she saw is real and takes it upon herself to find the truth. Her life quickly spirals out of control as she gets pulled deeper into the darkest recesses of the internet. And eventually, Elizabeth finds herself trapped in a twisted game in which she and her loved ones are targeted for the same grisly fate as the first victim.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.


  1. Matt Wavish, you have a good eye, sir! I’ve just one quick scene in The Den, but was a pleasure to work with director Zachary Donohue. I think his film will hit a raw nerve; am pleased to be a part of it and always delighted to be mentioned on the great! By the way, Coyote was picked up for distribution by Wild Eye Releasing and your review on Horror Cult Films was instrumental in getting the film looked at. vielen Dank!


    • That’s great news Bill, so please Coyote is getting the distribution it deserves. An awesome film! The Den took me by surprise, never heard of it before but it looks very impressive. Really looking forward to it. As always, love your work Bill! Thanks! Matt
