jacob's ladder remake release date

The unnecessary Jacob’s Ladder remake was supposed to open earlier this year, but was pulled from its release window at the last minute. Now it looks like we’ll finally have a chance to see it this summer. Vertical Entertainment just picked up the rights to the film, and plan to release it this summer. This Jacob’s Ladder is being described as a “reimagining” of the 1990 horror movie of the same name. This new take, directed by David M. Rosenthal, will tell a completely different story, and change the original movie’s famous twist ending.

NOS4A2 Featurette joe hill

Joe Hill‘s horror novel NOS4A2 comes to life in the form of an upcoming AMC series. In a new featurette, Hill talks about what it was like to see the world of his book brought to life for the series. “When a writer talks about having their story adapted, they all say the cliche things,” Hill says. “But it’s all true. It’s just incredibly thrilling to see all this stuff you lived with in your imagination suddenly set before you.” Watch the NOS4A2 featurette below.

child's play behind-the-scenes video

I’m trying to remain cautiously optimistic about the new Child’s Play. As a fan of the original franchise, I was initially against this remake. But the casting, and the footage from the two trailers, have turned me around a bit. I’m still not 100% sold, but I’m hoping to be surprised. One thing the film definitely has going for it is the use of practical effects. When this project was first announced, I figured a terrible CGI Chucky would be used. But as this new Child’s Play behind-the-scenes video shows, the filmmakers made around six Chucky animatronic puppets in order to bring the killer doll to life.

New John Carpenter Horror Movie

I’ve made peace with the idea of John Carpenter never making a new movie again. While I’d love for it to happen, I also know that Carpenter has several legendary films to his name already. I’m also aware that the horror filmmaker is perfectly content these days to make music or sit around cashing residual checks, and who can blame him?

But every now and then, Carpenter teases the idea of returning to movie making. As he did recently, while in Cannes receiving the French Directors’ Guild’s Carrosse d’Or Award for creative achievement in filmmaking. According to Carpenter, he’s down to make a “little horror film” or a “big adventure film” – if the budget is right.

saw reboot chris rock

The Saw movies always ended with a big twist, but here’s a real-life twist I don’t think anyone saw coming. Chris Rock – yes, that Chris Rock – is set to star in and produce a new Saw reboot, with franchise filmmaker Darren Lynn Bousman returning to direct. Rock came up with the idea for the film himself, and despite his presence, this isn’t going to be a comedy. Instead, the actor has cooked up something “really intense and twisted.”

Brightburn clip

What if there was something a little bit off about Superman when he was a kid? What if a boy with such immense power let his worst impulses control him and he made the turn into a full-blown supervillain? That’s the premise of Brightburn, and Sony Pictures has released a new clip from the movie featuring a key moment when the troubled kid at the story’s center (Jackson A. Dunn) discovers one of his superpowers. Check out the new Brightburn clip below. Read More »

clownado trailer

The world is in crisis. Climate change is out of control. Governments are collapsing. And now, there’s a movie called Clownado. I’d like to say that we, as a society, don’t deserve such a thing. But the fact of the matter is, we do. We’ve brought this on ourselves: a movie where demon clowns have the power to control tornadoes. Watch the Clownado trailer below…if you dare.

All That We Destroy Review

(Blumhouse Television and Hulu have partnered for a monthly horror anthology series titled Into The Dark, set to release a full holiday-themed feature the first Friday of every month. Horror anthology expert Matt Donato will be tackling the series one-by-one, stacking up the entries as they become streamable.)

Chelsea Stardust’s All That We Destroy is the antithesis Mother’s Day feature to Troma’s splattery, schlocky exploitation (Mother’s Day) that once dominated May’s most honorable Sunday (for genre fans). Where Charles Kaufman favors shock and awe, Stardust brings method and layered trauma to this month’s Into The Dark segment. It’s a portrait of a serial killer under mama’s containment, but not in a mentor/trainee scenario. Screenwriters Sean Keller and Jim Agnew splice scientific reinvention, parent/child complications, and the unanswerable constants of human nature into a true crime podcast’s next subject. Making a murderer, Into The Dark style.
