nightmare on elm street revival

Late last year, the fine folks at SpectreVision revealed they had been in touch with the rights holders to potentially revive/reboot the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. It was also reported last year that Wes Craven’s estate – who now own the Nightmare rights – was in the process of taking pitches for a new Nightmare. While there’s nothing official yet, SpectreVision’s Elijah Wood has opened up a bit about what he has in mind for a Nightmare on Elm Street revival, and it sounds like it has potential.

lovecraft trilogy

SpectreVision is about to release Color Out of Space, a big, weird H.P. Lovecraft adaptation starring Nicolas Cage and directed by Richard Stanley. But it might not be the last Lovecraft film the production company unleashes. According to founders Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah, a Lovecraft trilogy is being planned, with hopes for a Dunwich Horror movie next.

nightmare on elm street reboot spectrevision

The original Nightmare on Elm Street series has long since ended, giving way to an absolutely abysmal remake. What does the future hold for Freddy Krueger? Will he ever don his fedora and unleash his claws on unsuspecting teens? Or is Freddy truly dead? It’s safe to assume that sooner or later, Hollywood will give Freddy a second chance. But who will be behind it?

How about Elijah Wood? Wood and his fellow SpectreVision producer Daniel Noah are eager to get their hands on a Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, and have even attempted to work out something with the rights holders.

Mad Max Fury Road Black and Chrome SpectreFest premiere

Though the version of Mad Max: Fury Road we saw in theaters last year was bursting with color, director George Miller has been staunch in his belief that “the best version of this movie is black and white.” So a few weeks ago, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment announced it’d be releasing the fabled “Black and Chrome Edition” of the film on Blu-ray later this year. But if you’ve still got your heart set on watching the black and white version in theaters, you may get your chance this fall.

The Mad Max: Fury Road Black and Chrome Edition will make its theatrical world premiere at SpectreFest in Los Angeles later this month, and tickets are on sale now. Get all the details below, plus info about the rest of this year’s SpectreFest lineup, which also includes Denis Villeneuve’s Arrival, Ana Lily Amirpour’s The Bad Batch, and J.A. Bayona’s A Monster CallsRead More »

curse the darkness director

I really like what SpectreVision is doing. The label created by Elijah Wood, Daniel Noah, and Josh C. Waller is backing and promoting a set of strange movies from the US and around the world. Their films so far include A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night (review), Cooties (review), L.F.O. (review), Toad Road (trailer), and Open Windows (trailer). SpectreVision has been working on a picture that Elijah Wood has described as an “anthropological zombie film.” Now that film, Curse the Darkness, is set with financing and a director, to shoot this fall.
