castlevania netflix series

Yesterday Netflix announced Castlevania season 1, part 1 is coming out later this year. Adi Shankar (Dredd), comic book writer Warren Ellis (Planetary), and executive producer Fred Seibert (Adventure Time) are working on the animated series, which Shankar says has a “Game of Thrones vibe to it.” He also guarantees it’ll conclude “the streak and be the western world’s first good video game adaptation.”

Below, read what else Shankar had to say about the Castlevania Netflix series.

Halloween Sequel

In May 2016, we learned that Blumhouse, producer of The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister and The Visit, would be teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween movie. Not long after, we heard that Oculus director Mike Flanagan was in talks to direct. Well, it looks like that isn’t happening after all.

Instead, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will be writing and directing the new Halloween movie with John Carpenter serving as executive producer and consultant on the project.

WISH UPON trailer

Actress Joey King gives an excellent performance in The Conjuring. The sense of fear and terror she expresses is unsettling, especially during the “there’s someone behind the door” sequence. Not all actors are believable acting scared, but she can pull it off. Now she’s back in the horror genre with Wish Upon, which reunites her with The Conjuring‘s cinematographer, John R. Leonetti, who directed that film’s hit spinoff, Annabelle.

Below, watch the Wish Upon trailer.

it comes at night trailer

It’s easy to roll your eyes at movie trailers, to scoff at how people are sometimes more obsessed with film marketing than films themselves. On some days, I agree. On other days, the It Comes at Night trailer arrives and reminds me that there’s a genuine art to cutting a great movie trailer and that the best of the bunch can evoke a film’s atmosphere without falling into the trap of summarizing the entire movie in two minutes.

And the arrival of the It Comes at Night trailer serves as a reminder that Trey Edward Shults, the director of the critically acclaimed Krisha, has gone and made a horror movie starring Joel Edgerton for his sophomore feature and that is very, very interesting.

A Cure for wellness super bowl spot

Director Gore Verbinski‘s last four films are gigantic popcorn movies. Rango, the Pirates of the Carribean sequels, and The Lone Ranger are enormous in scope. With A Cure for Wellness, the director is scaling things back a bit, sticking with mostly one location: one messed up, horrific, and beautifully designed spa.

Below, watch A Cure for Wellness Super Bowl spot.

the blackcoat's daughter trailer

I’ve been looking forward to seeing The Blackcoat’s Daughter ever since I missed it during Fantastic Fest 2015, back when it was still going by its original title, February. Oz Perkins‘ directorial debut inspired a great deal of conversation throughout the festival, with audiences split over whether or not it was a gem or…let’s just say “not a gem.” Any film that can stir up that divide people and get them talking is a must-see.

After a lengthy delay, the film is set to arrive soon and an atmospheric new trailer has shown up.

the walking dead characters

The characters who’ve survived so far in The Walking Dead comics have probably lived this long for a reason. Since Robert Kirkman’s black-and-white zombie comic started in 2003, quite a few prominent characters have been killed off in the zombie wasteland. The series is famous for some memorable death scenes. Season seven of the television series, which returns in less than two weeks, was even hyped up over the death of one character — a tease in the season six finale that polarized fans.

Kirkman says, at least in the comics, not to expect too many major deaths in the near future. Below, read what else he had to say about the fate of his characters and watch a promo for the second half of season seven of The Walking Dead.
