Stranger Things Posters - The Goonies Poster

We’ve still got some time until the second season of Stranger Things starts streaming on Netflix just before Halloween. The brand new trailer that debuted at Comic-Con was good enough to hold us over for awhile, but we’ll take whatever we can get to whet our appetite.

That’s why we’re glad the official Stranger Things Twitter account is partaking in a promotional endeavor called #StrangerThursdays, where they rewatch each episode of the first season every Thursday (leading up to the second season premiere) and live tweet with cheeky posts, behind the scenes details about specific scenes and more. The coolest part of this lead-up is they kick off an episode by revealing a new Stranger Things poster inspired by one of the 1980s movies that influenced the show.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be updating this post with the newest Stranger Things posters, but you can see which ones have been revealed below, as well as the original posters that inspired them. Read More »

Deja Vu - Denzel Washington - Movies Leaving Netflix

Summer is coming to an end, and as the temperature cools down as we head into fall, you’re going to want to snuggle up on your couch and kick back with some Netflix. But for some of the titles in the streaming library, you’ll want to check them off your queue sooner rather than later, because September will see some solid movies and TV shows leaving Netflix.

Chucky vs Freddy

Despite the many horror franchises that exist in cinema, crossovers between them in recent years have been few and far between. While Universal once had all of their monster movies like Frankenstein, Wolf Man and Dracula exist in the same universe (something the studio is failing horribly at recreating today), the only major franchise crossovers have been Freddy vs Jason and Alien vs Predator. Here’s a shoutout to Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys, just for existing. But the creator of Child’s Play wants to make one happen with everyone’s favorite serial killer doll meeting the master of haunting your dreams.

Don Mancini has kept the Child’s Play franchise alive somehow by making it crazier with the likes of Bride of Chucky, Seed of Chucky and the direct-to-video release Cult of Chucky. Ideally, he’d like to see the murderous Good Guy doll meet up with Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, and he has a whole idea of how it would work.

Alphabitz Art Show

Two of our favorite pop culture artists working today are undoubtedly Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo. We’ve featured their work when they’ve had shows together, and we’ve even featured them when they tackle two different animated shows for adults. Now they’re back for another team show, this time delivering the ABCs of pop culture in a new show called Alphabitz.

Alphabitz does exactly what you would expect it to by having Tom Whalen and Dave Perillo create pop culture pieces inspired by the alphabet. For example, there’s P for Predator, V for Voltron, B for BB-8 and much more. But beyond having these familiar characters from pop culture representing a letter, what they’re doing is also indicative of the letter chosen, which makes for some goofy scenarios, like Freddy Krueger filing his nails in France, or Dracula driving Miss Daisy in a Dodge.

Check out pieces from the Alphabitz art show below, including some debut images given exclusively to /Film. Read More »

A Nightmare on Elm Street and Critters Reboot

This past weekend saw audiences flock to theaters for some terror in the form of Annabelle: Creation. The prequel to Annabelle, which was a spin-off of The Conjuring, took the top spot at the box office with over $35 million, which isn’t bad for the second weekend in August. That’s the second satisfying horror flick that director David F. Sandberg has delivered, and he hopes to deliver more, perhaps with some recognizable franchise titles from decades passed.

While partaking in a discussion about Annabelle: Creation, Sandberg was asked which franchises he’d like to tinker with if an opportunity was available. Sandberg picked A Nightmare on Elm Street, a franchise that was rebooted with disappointing results, and Critters, a franchise that hasn’t been touched since 1992. Find out more below. Read More »

Nightmares in the Makeup Chair

One of the things I’ve always loved about Robert Englund is that he seems to genuinely love being Freddy Krueger. Some actors grow jaded when they find themselves associated with a single character and their bitterness radiates in every interview (and sometimes in the performances themselves). But Englund? Englund seems seems happy to be there, happy to endure the prosthetics, and happy to have created a character that has resonated with so many people all over the world.

While Englund will most likely never headline a Nightmare on Elm Street movie ever again (and the remake may have killed the series forever), he’s becoming the iconic horror movie killer at least one more time for the new documentary Nightmares in the Makeup Chair, which will pay tribute to the practical effects artists who have brought the character to life over the years.

Freddy vs Jason vs Ash Movie

Back in the fall of 2007 a comic book miniseries debuted which pitted Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees and Ash Williams against each other. After that, there were rumblings of possibly seeing a film adaptation of Freddy vs Jason vs Ash, but as the years went on, nothing ever came of those talks. So what happened?

With the second season of Ash vs Evil Dead currently running on Starz, and a third season already ordered, Bruce Campbell recently participated in a Reddit AMA where he was asked about the potential for a Freddy vs Jason vs Ash movie. Find out what the actor had to say about the matter after the jump. Read More »
