Mondo Texas Frightmare

Today begins another round of Texas Frightmare Weekend, the annual horror convention that has been going for 11 years now. This year is a special one for horror fans, because it marks the 20th anniversary of Wes Craven‘s genre redefining Scream, which will be getting a special screening at the event. And with it comes a special new Mondo print paying tribute to the slasher.

But those aren’t the only Mondo goodies that Texas Frightmare attendees will be able to get their hands on. There will also be new prints for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Jaws, The Conjuring and White Zombie. Check out all of the Mondo Texas Frightmare prints below. Read More »

Ghostbusters - hotel

The Ghostbusters marketing campaign has offered plenty of footage of our new heroes bonding and bickering and dealing with paranormal phenomena. What we haven’t seen much of is the villain — the evil force behind the scenes who’s pulling all the strings and unleashing all these horrors. But today, we have comments from director Paul Feig and screenwriter Katie Dippold that shed some light on this shadowy figure.

Meanwhile, if you’re still holding out hope that the new heroes will someday meet the old heroes, well, Feig says he’d like to see that too. While the upcoming Ghostbusters is a hard reboot — meaning it has no narrative connection to the original films — the filmmaker teased the possibility of a “multiverse” that could lead to a crossover someday.  Read More »

the omen prequel

The news that 20th Century Fox is developing a prequel to the 1976 horror classic The Omen shouldn’t come as much of a surprise – everything gets a prequel these days, whether the original material calls for it or not. It’s just the current state of the system. It’s also not too surprising that David Goyer is on board as a producer, since he has a habit of popping up anywhere and everywhere, especially when someone is trying to reinvent something with a familiar name. What is pleasantly surprising is the involvement of director Antonio Campos, who is the kind of fresh voice that should be making genre movies at major studios.

UPDATE: Deadline reports that Michael Barbieri, the star of Little Men, has joined the cast as Timmy, a friend to Jake Chambers. The original story follows below.

That headline may be a bit of a deep cut for the uninitiated, but you hopefully got the gist of it: Katheryn Winnick, who is best known for playing Lagertha on the History Channel’s Vikings series, has joined the rapidly expanding cast of the upcoming film adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. Whom she’ll play in Nikolaj Arcel‘s film remains unknown, but one report suggests that fans of the book series should stop scouring the text to find a connection – it looks like she could be playing a newly invented character.

Sony Opens the Book on a ‘Goosebumps’ Sequel

Goosebumps

At this point, it’s a given that if a studio movie based on a familiar property attains even a modest level of success, someone, somewhere has started thinking about a sequel. After all, Hollywood execs are in the business of making money — and if they’ve already shelled out huge sums of cash to scoop up a familiar brand, milking it for all it’s worth just makes financial sense.

So it should come as no surprise that, after the solid-but-not-great returns from Goosebumps last year, Sony is now in the process of putting together a Goosebumps 2Rob Letterman, who directed the first one, is in, as is screenwriter Darren Lemke. But what about Jack Black, who played Goosebumps author R.L. Stine?  Read More »
