alien alternate ending

Alien had a notoriously high death count when it first hit theaters in 1979, horrifying theatergoers with its gore and blend of horror and sci-fi.

But director Ridley Scott, who is promoting his return to the Alien franchise with the upcoming Alien: Covenant, had in mind one more body to add to that death toll: Ellen Ripley. The de facto star of the following Alien movies was never originally intended to survive beyond the first film, according to a recently revealed alternate ending.

creature from the black lagoon remake

This summer’s new take on The Mummy doesn’t even open for a few more months, but Universal keeps on digging in their heels and doubling down on their new monsters universe. And while the studio waits with bated breath to see if there’s a blockbuster-sized audience for this new venture, they keep on hiring writers to shepherd new characters to the screen. And for their new take on The Creature From the Black Lagoon, a writer already very familiar with lead characters who are more able in water than on land has nabbed the job.

Annabelle Creation Trailer

Even though The Conjuring spin-off Annabelle showed us one of the earlier supernatural frights created by the doll that eventually ends up in the hands of paranormal investigators and demonologists Lorraine (Vera Farmiga) and Ed (Patrick Wilson) Warren, we still don’t know much about where the creepy toy came from. But we’ll find out late this summer.

Annabelle: Creation will take us back even further into the history of the possessed doll with Lights Out director David F. Sandberg bringing us the origin story of how this doll became evil and who it terrorized first.

The Mummy Trailer

The first trailer for Universal’s remake of The Mummy only gave a hint of the horror in store for Tom Cruise in the first installment of the new Universal Monsters shared universe. But now a new trailer offers a further glimpse at the return of an ancient princess who was imprisoned in a tomb and left to die, and now she’s out to destroy the modern world so she can rule over the world she once knew.

it trailer

Earlier this week, Warner Bros. unveiled the first trailer for Andres Muschietti’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s horror classic It. Aside from the idea of the filmmakers splitting the story into two separate films – one following a group of kids facing off against Pennywise the Clown, and a potential sequel picking up with them as adults – I thought it was a solid trailer that did a great job setting the tone for the scares to come. But I never would have guessed it would have set a new record for the most trailer views in 24 hours, so let’s take a closer look at what’s going on here. Read More »

George Lucas

The list of truly effective video game jump scares is a short but powerful one. The dogs bursting through the windows in Resident Evil. The woman with the broken neck in Fatal Frame. Freddy Fazbear in Five Nights at Freddy’s. The aliens in Rescue on Fractalus! Wait…what’s that last one?

Yes, it turns out that an 8-bit LucasArts game originally released for the Atari 800 contains what may be the first (and still most effective!) jump scare in video game history…and George Lucas is partially responsible.

TURN IT OFF

Stephen King’s massive tome of terror It is coming to the big screen this September, care of Andrés Muschietti’s adaptation. It previously came to life via a 1990 ABC miniseries, featuring an iconic performance from Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown. It’ll be hard to fill Curry’s clown shoes, but Bill Skarsgård is going to give it a go.

The first teaser trailer for It arrived this week, so let’s go ahead and break this creepshow down. One thing this trailer makes clear: Muschietti is staying true to the source material while also forging his own path and not simply remaking the miniseries.

Spoilers lie ahead. This is a deep dive.

a dark song trailer

One of the most pleasant surprises to come out of last year’s Fantastic Fest was Liam Gavin’s A Dark Song, a stripped-down, no-nonsense horror movie about the perils of the occult. It was one of the most intriguing, unique, and creepy movies I saw in 2016…and soon, it will be one of the most intriguing, unique, and creepy movies you’ll see in 2017. You can watch the first trailer below.
