In a way, The Ring was its own prequel — much of the plot was devoted to figuring out the origins of the killer tape, and uncovering Samara’s tragic childhood in the process. Then the 2005 sequel revealed still more of Samara’s backstory. But apparently there’s still more to her tale that needs to be told.
A new report indicates the upcoming Rings will be a prequel. F. Javier Gutiérrez is directing the new film with Matilda Lutz starring. Learn more about The Ring prequel after the jump. Read More »

Lucy Lawless will fight Bruce Campbell in Ash vs. Evil Dead, as she takes a part in the new Starz series that acts as a sequel to Army of Darkness. Campbell repeats the title role of Ash, the affable and often-abused guy who keeps getting into fights with the reanimated dead. And in the TV series, he’ll also have to contend with Lawless, who’ll play a woman who thinks that Ash is responsible for the latest plague of deadites. Read More »
A few months back, news broke that Con Air director Simon West was going to be remaking The Blob. It sounded like a smart move as The Blob is a horror franchise that’s somehow simultaneously incredibly well-known, but also not incredibly popular. Everyone has heard of it and knows the premise just based on the title, but the number of people who actually champion the films is much smaller. That’s just the right formula for a remake.
Now, the director has explained a few more details about his Blob remake. He compares the Blob itself to the villains of the Alien and Predator franchises and says, in the same way dinosaurs are made believable in Jurassic Park, The Blob will be believable in this. Read more about the Blob remake below.

Every zombie story needs that scene, when the characters find out the world they know has changed forever. The scene when the dead rise from the grave or, at the very least, the characters see their first zombie. That familiarity makes this scene a good barometer to distinguish zombie projects and is probably why it was chosen as the first clip from Zach Lipovsky‘s Dead Rising: Watchtower, the online adaptation of the popular zombie video game series.
In the clip, we see the some of the main characters (played by Jesse Metcalfe and Keegan Connor Tracy) shockingly discover that zombies are about to mess stuff up in a big way. There’s some slick camera work and violence giving a nice tease of what to expect when Dead Rising: Watchtowers hits Crackle on March 27. Check out the first Dead Rising movie clip below. Read More »

Fish Friend is a short film about the tender relationship between a young girl and her murderous pet piranha. But this isn’t (quite) a horror story. It’s more like a sweet coming of age tale set in a world that is equal parts ’50s Americana and subversive ’90s animation thrown in. It just happens to have some blood, skulls, and a lot of teeth. Oh, and a stop-motion piranha who is as oddly endearing as he is menacing. Watch the short Fish Friend film after the break.

If you’ve seen enough vampire shows and movies — and there are always plenty to choose from — you’ve probably noticed that they feature some conflicting mythology. Do these creatures of the night sparkle when exposed into sunlight, or burst into flames? Can they control your mind, or just read it? Fortunately, the real vampires of What We Do in the Shadows are here to set the record straight.
In a new Funny or Die video, Viago (Taika Waititi) and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) lay out 7 vampire truths. Along the way, they dispel stereotypes (they don’t all wear capes… except the ones that do) and reveal personal tastes. (Evanescence is big with bloodsuckers, apparently.) Watch the What We Do in the Shadows vampire rules after the jump. Read More »
