Jamie Lee Curtis is back again as Laurie Strode, and the sequel will be picking up immediately after the previous film’s conclusion. This image underlines that, showing Michael emerging from the burning house Laurie and her daughter and granddaughter left him in right before the end credits rolled.

the black phone cast

The Black Phone, the new horror film from the Sinister team of Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, has added Jeremy Davies to the cast. The film is based on a short story by Joe Hill and follows a kidnapped boy locked in a basement with a creepy, unconnected telephone that suddenly starts ringing. Since the kidnapper is the only adult in the story it’s all but certain that Davies is playing that character.

the forever purge first look

Once upon a time, The Purge franchise felt like it existed wholly in the realm of fiction. But in the years since the first film has been released, The Purge‘s imagery of American run wild has begun to feel uncomfortably prescient. And in the wake of yesterday’s horrific attack on the US Capitol, anything Purge-related is probably going to come across as extra disturbing. But Blumhouse is invested in the franchise, and they already have a new Purge title in the can – The Forever Purge. The sequel was supposed to hit theaters last year but ended up being delayed due to COVID-19, but now it’s due out this year. And we have the first image and real plot details to go with it.

spawn reboot Michael Jai White

Todd McFarlane has been talking about a Spawn reboot movie since at least 2007, and eventually, Blumhouse got involved – but nothing has materialized. Even after announcing that both Jamie Foxx and Jeremy Renner would both appear in the reboot, there’s been almost no real movement on the project. It’s gotten to the point where McFarlane’s Spawn reboot feels like a weird, sick joke – something he keeps talking about even though we all know it’ll never happen. Now, original Spawn star Michael Jai White has weighed in with the following message: “Okay, good luck with that!”

Mother who hunted cartel members

Earlier this month, The New York Times published an article entitled “She Stalked Her Daughter’s Killers Across Mexico, One by One,” which told the true story of Miriam Rodriguez, a mother who hunted cartel members who murdered her daughter and took justice into her own hands. It was one of those stories that immediately made readers wonder who would end up adapting it into a movie, and now, just a few days after it was first published, we know the answer: Blumhouse has won a bidding war for the film rights.

A new report says that Green is in talks to direct a sequel to director William Friedkin’s 1973 classic The Exorcist for Morgan Creek and Blumhouse. Here’s what we know so far. Read More »

happy death day 3 update new

I’m not going to sit here and say that Happy Death Day 3 would solve all of the world’s problems…but I’m not not saying that, either. Alas, it looks like the third entry in the wildly fun slasher/time-loop series remains a long shot. In a new interview, Christopher Landon, who directed the first two entries, and who helmed the new release Freaky, said that while everyone involved remains ready to make another movie, it’s not going to happen without a “truckload of cash.” However, there might be hope – from Peacock.

freaky review

Filled with inventive kills, genuinely funny jokes, and a surprisingly warm heart, Freaky is one of the year’s most enjoyable films. It’s a blood-drenched horror-comedy that goes for big laughs, bigger gore, and wraps it all up in touching pathos that’s bound to catch more than a few viewers off guard. The original pitch for the film was Freaky Friday meets Friday the 13th, and if that isn’t enough to catch your attention, what is? A body-swap comedy crossed with a slasher flick, Freaky feels like it has something for everyone. It’s the best, and most inventive, slasher movie since Scream.

Halloween is over, but we still have next Halloween to look forward to. And with it, Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018’s Halloween that will once again have Jamie Lee Curtis battling Michael “The Shape” Myers. We got a great new teaser trailer for the flick last week, and with it came a new interview with Curtis. The once and future Laurie Strode commented on the fact that this new Halloween feels almost timely, with Curtis even going so far as to make comparisons to the Black Lives Matter movement.
