Mike Flanagan

How do you adapt an unadaptable Stephen King novel into a movie? The answer, apparently, is to hire Mike Flanagan.

Flanagan may not be the type of household name horror director the way John Carpenter, Wes Craven and George Romero once and still are, but over the last several years, he’s been quietly rising to prominence as one of the most efficient craftsmen in the horror genre. As a horror filmmaker, Flanagan seems to have a knack for taking unlikely, or unworkable, concepts and finding the humanity in them. Gerald’s Game, Flanagan’s adaptation of a seemingly unfilmable King novel, has already earned high praise from early screenings and hits Netflix today, possibly launching the filmmaker to even greater prominence. The film is exemplary, but it’s just another piece in the greater puzzle that is Flanagan’s growing filmography.

The Darkness Trailer

Blumhouse Picture has a notable track record of casting their horror projects right. They don’t always work out, but even just looking at that The Purge: Election Year trailer from the other day, the production company really struck gold in Frank Grillo. The actor was a big reason why The Purge sequel was a vast improvement over its predecessor. And for Blumhouse’s latest picture, The Darkness, who better to cast than Kevin Bacon to ground your supernatural horror movie?

Get a taste of what’s in store from Blumhouse this time with The Darkness trailer below.

M Night Shyamalan directing The Visit

While The Visit stopped short of restoring M. Night Shyamalan to his Sixth Sense heyday, it was, at least, a step in the right direction for the once-hyped filmmaker. It earned him his strongest reviews in years, and (thanks to its $5 million budget) turned a tidy profit for studio Universal.

Whether he’ll keep that momentum going with his next film remains to be seen, but at least now we know when we’ll find out. Universal has just set a 2017 release date for his upcoming project with James McAvoy, now titled Split. More on the Shyamalan 2017 release date after the jump.  Read More »

The Gallows

In a summer movie season positive jam-packed with sequels, reboots, and spinoffs, it’s kind of refreshing to hear about a wide release that’s none of those things. Heck, The Gallows doesn’t even have a big-name director or a star-studded cast to attract attention.

What it does have is Blumhouse Productions, the powerhouse behind some of the biggest horror hits of the past several years including Insidious, Paranormal Activity, and Sinister. Watch The Gallows teaser trailer after the jump.  Read More »
