The Shining Maze Model

Since it’s October, you’re bound to catch Stanley Kubrick‘s psychological horror masterpiece The Shining at some point (hopefully not ruined by being cut for time and content on television). Of course, even though the movie is perfect for Halloween, it’s really the kind of twisted thriller that can be watched anytime. One of the film’s biggest fans is Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage, and he recently showed just how much love he has for the classic when heundertook quite the massive project for Tested.

Adam Savage has created an intricate model of the terrifying Overlook Hotel maze from the movie. It’s a beautiful, incredibly detailed piece of work that is impressive even when compared to everything else Adam Savage has done before.

meg first look

A film adaptation of Steve Alten’s 1997 prehistoric killer shark book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror has been on and off the table for the better part of two decades now. If you journey into the /Film archives, you’ll find a 2007 post about how New Line was killing their version after years of failed development. From there, the film continued to wade through murky development hell, with various directors coming and going. Finally, earlier this year, National Treasure‘s Jon Turteltaub climbed on board, Jason Statham signed on to star, and some Chinese financing made the whole project feel like less of a risk for Warner Bros.

Now, the first image from Meg has arrived, an image that stands in defiance to both God and man. This movie has officially been willed into existence.

the autopsy of jane doe red band trailer

When I left the theater after seeing The Autopsy of Jane Doe at Fantastic Fest last month, the first thing I did was try to find a way to steady my nerves because this movie is scary as hell. The second thing I did was wonder how IFC Midnight was going to market a movie that takes place almost entirely around an autopsy table, with an increasingly, uh, examined dead body being central to much of the plot. The easiest answer: a red band trailer, of course.

Bryce Dallas Howard in Black Mirror - Nosedive - Black Mirror Season 3 featurettes

Black Mirror returns to Netflix on October 21 with its third season and I couldn’t be more excited and horrified. Charlie Brooker‘s technology-centric anthology series is the closest thing we have to a modern version of The Twilight Zone, a show that blends science fiction and horror and satire and tragedy into a delicious, mortifying, and addictive stew. Almost every episode so far has chilled me to my core and I love it to pieces and I love that a fourth season is already in the works.

But while we’re waiting, how about we all settle in and watch a pair of new Black Mirror season 3 featurettes that explore the concepts of two new Black Mirror episodes?

givertaker short film

My love for movies was born out of my love for horror movies and my love for horror movies was born out of a childhood obsession with monsters and ghosts and whatever else goes bump in the night. Because of that, I’m a strong believer that kids (and young adults or whatever we want to call them these days) deserve quality genre entertainment. You don’t necessarily want to subject an 11-year old to something truly grisly, but they also deserve access to horror stories that don’t talk down to them or pull their punches.

And that’s why the short film Givertaker scratches a very specific itch buried in the back of my brain. Here’s a horror short that speaks the same language as the various books and movies that I devoured when I was younger, while also functioning as a clever and entertaining genre tale. And it’s online and available to watch right now.

Don’t Expect to See ‘Blade’ Anytime Soon

Marvel Studios Blade update - Wesley Snipes

Over the years, there’s been speculation, rumors, and stories about how or when we might see Blade return, but rarely is there any news confirming any movement on another Blade film. We heard about Wesley Snipesdesire to play the daywalker again, a possible Netflix series from Marvel Studios, a rumored film about Blade’s daughter Fallon Grey, and, just the other day, Kate Beckinsale said they once discussed bringing Blade into the Underworld franchise. Beckinsale said Marvel had plans for the character, so that’s one of the reasons why it didn’t work out, but according to Marvel President Kevin Feige, there aren’t any immediate plans for the vampire slayer.

Below, get the latest Blade update from Feige.
