Slender Man

A Slender Man movie was only a matter of time. What started as a fun game of Photoshopping has now led to a potential film. The mysterious and haunting figure started out in 2009 as a hit internet meme. Now, Screen Gems sees money to be made with the character, and they’re possibly eying a 2017 release date for the project.

Universal Monsters Movie Dated for 2019

Universal Monsters

Universal’s upcoming slate just got a little bit spookier. The studio has locked down a 2019 release date for the third installment of its nascent Universal Monsters franchise, which kicks off in 2017 with a reboot of The Mummy and continues in 2018 with an as-yet-untitled film. In addition, they’ve also set aside a spring 2018 date for an unrelated R-rated comedy.  Read More »

puppet master reboot

In retrospect, in was inevitable. Someone, someday, was going to reboot the Puppet Master series. All long-running horror movie franchises follow the same pattern: unlikely early success leads to annualized sequels, annualized sequels lead to diminishing returns, diminishing returns lead to nostalgia-soaked sequels a decade or more after the series seeming died. And then: the Hollywood reboot. In this case, the new Puppet Master movie will be produced by Di Bonaventura Pictures, who are best known these days for the Transformers and G.I. Joe movies, and written by S. Craig Zahler, the legit madman who wrote and directed last year’s Bone Tomahawk.

Ghostbusters rerelease

We’re gonna be calling a whole new team of Ghostbusters this summer, as Paul Feig‘s reboot has Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones strapping on those proton packs for the very first time. But before we get there, perhaps you’d like to take a minute to look back at the old Ghostbusters team.

Fathom Events has announced the original Ghostbusters will be coming back to theaters for a special engagement in June. And if you’ll be in or around Brooklyn next month, you’re really in luck, as BBQ Films is hosting an immersive Ghostbusters screening experience inside a recreation of the Ghostbusters headquarters.  Read More »

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.
