Update: A new press release informs us that Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Happy Death Day) will compose the score for Hell Fest. Our original article follows.
In recent years, I’ve become a huge fan of haunted house attractions. Every year, Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm hold Halloween events with scary mazes which are a whole lot of fun. Some of my friends who love horror films absolutely refuse to ever go to these events. One of them even fears that she might be killed in a maze and nobody would notice and just think it’d part of the show, and her dead rotting carcass is just another gruesome prop in the set design.
Hell Fest is the movie version of that idea, and while the execution looks like a bland studio horror film, I’m intrigued enough by the idea and horror theme park setting to see this film in theaters. Check out the Hell Fest trailer below.

J.J. Abrams is a busy man. Not only did he direct, produce and co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but he still found some time left over in his day to produce a follow-up to Matt Reeves‘ POV monster movie Cloverfield.
Dan Trachtenberg‘s 10 Cloverfield Lane might not be a sequel (although Abrams seems to suggest one could still happen one day), so how does it connect to the original Cloverfield movie? Will God Particle be third film in the “Clover-verse”? And might Cannibal Airlines actually become a real movie? We also learn how Abrams found director Dan Trachtenberg, discuss the cleverly minimal marketing campaign, and get the details on Bear McCreary‘s masterful score. And the best thing is this interview is entirely SPOILER FREE, so don’t be afraid to start reading now.

As is usually the case when a great film or television project is over, I’ve taken an interest in following the key players of Battlestar Galactica to see what they’ll be up to next. If it’s anything like my years following Whedon alum, their involvement in future projects should at least be an indication that it’s worth paying attention to (though I’ll admit this doesn’t always work out, see Drive). Series composer Bear McCreary is one person that I’ll be keeping a particularly keen eye on, and he has now announced that he’s working on Capcom’s upcoming sci-fi action game Dark Void.
McCreary’s work on Battlestar Galactica was among the best music made for television I’ve ever come across, and while he has yet to shine as brightly in his other work for TV shows (Terminator and Eureka), it’s clear that he has the talent to do extraordinary work when the project demands it.
