goosebumps 2 haunted halloween trailer

The scariest thing about things that go bump in the night is not being able to see them — are the monsters, ghouls, and demons just a figment of your imagination or are they lurking just behind you, waiting to attack? R.L. Stine‘s Goosebumps books always perfectly tapped into this pervasive fear while introducing iconic monsters like Slappy the Dummy.

But in the new Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween trailer, the mystery disappears as Slappy leads an army of spooky R.L. Stine creatures into the real world to “make Halloween last forever.”

Slender Man deleted scenes

The delayed Slender Man movie finally hit theaters last week, and was met with mostly silence. The film wasn’t screened for critics, and didn’t scare up much box office. Before Slender Man arrived, rumor had it that Sony and the producers were clashing over the content of the fright flick. Now word comes that Sony snipped several scary scenes, mostly out of fear of backlash.

Hook 4K

I realize it’s popular to crap on Hook, Steven Spielberg‘s 1991 movie that tells the story of what happens to Peter Pan when he becomes an adult. But even if Spielberg himself doesn’t look back on it fondly, the film still has its fair share of supporters – including yours truly – and they may be interested to know that Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is about to release a Hook 4K Blu-ray.

The new home video release’s special features will include 11 never-before-seen deleted scenes, and you can read more about the new transfer below.

Spider-Man Far From Home Villain

Since Peter Parker is now “dead” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe thanks to the mighty snap of Thanos at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, details are scarce on Spider-Man’s next big screen adventure. Marvel Studios is playing things very close to the chest this time, but it’s hard to hide the fact that a new Spider-Man movie is in production overseas right now.

once upon a time in hollywood first look

Last week, we got our first look at Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate in Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The project has been steeped in controversy since its announcement, as it will pair the notoriously provocative director with a subject matter undeserving of glorification or gratuity: the Manson Murders.

At least, that was the initial concern. As we’ve learned in the meantime, and in Tarantino’s own words, the film is “not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.” Indeed, as more information comes out, we can see that the film is the story of a Hollywood – and an America – in a great metamorphosis. Not a Manson story, but a story where those famous murders are one facet of a grander tale, about the abrupt end of a free-loving, free-wheeling decade where every renaissance was tainted by inconceivable retractions.

To drive home the intended perception of Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, let’s take a look back at all of the confirmed production and casting announcements, and use those confirmations to speculate what kind of movie Tarantino might have in store.
