Carpenter is baaaaaack!

John Carpenter seems to be working hard in 2017. This is evident with his new 2 TV show deal reported earlier this year, one called Tales For A Halloween Night and the other, Nightside. On top of this, news surfacing this week indicates he is working on another new show on top of these 2. This show is untitled and relatively in the dark still, but a former partner and X-Men and X-Men 2 writer, David Hayter is going to be working closely with Carpenter to create it.

BUT WAIT! There is more, Carpenter is back and working but oh no, he isn’t just back working, he will take his rightful throne once again, the directors chair.

More to come.

New season of ‘Ash vs. Evil Dead’ to uncover a lot of mythos

Why is Ash the chosen one? This is a question that seems to hang above every fan of this TV show’s head. Hopefully this will be answered by the end of the upcoming season of the show.

Star of the show, Bruce Campbell leaked on an interview with Dread Central last week that this season is going to be much different to the last two, and a lot of answers will be uncovered. ‘Nothing will be the same’ are his exact words, and the origins and depth of Ash as a character will become clearer to the general fans.

SO hang in there till early next year fans, because that’s when you’ll be lucky enough to learn why Ash really is the chosen one.

Anya Taylor-Joy keeps the dream team alive, joining cast of Nosferatu

Robert Eggers hit indie of 2016, The Witch, will go down as one of the most masterful and authentic paranormal movies to exits, let alone one of the greatest takes on England in that period of time. I’m not saying this because i am fan, even though i loved The Witch, read anywhere, or go watch it yourself if you don’t believe me, it will wow you. What is more exciting than this is that since then we have been wondering what the great director will tackle next, and now we know, Nosferatu.

Nosferatu, the great silent Dracula film of the 1920’s and maybe the first ever horror movie to become popular and noteworthy, Eggers is aiming to create something  original yet still pays homage to the trailblazing horror movie. But he can’t do it without the star of his last movie, Anya Taylor-Joy. Taylor-Joy was superb in her conflicting role in Eggers 2016 hit, and now knowing she has re-teamed with Eggers, this remake may very much be one of those rarities, the remakes that outdo their originals.

Whats the goss with Jeepers Creepers III?

Jeepers Creepers and its sequel became a much heftier and grander horror series than many expected. It’s encapsulating fear factor, being the ancient creature, ‘Creeper’ and it’s sequential hunting pattern terrified audiences since it’s inception.

14 somewhat patient years later and after numerous scripts, re-writes, production errors, and on top of what has been a plethora of plot changes we are finally moving towards the newest addition. Victora Salva is the original director and has returned to direct the third instalment, which in actual fact will be fall after the first and before Jeepers Creepers II. Although the plot has been leaked to an extent, all we know for sure is that the extinction of the Creeper which will be run by the local sheriff.

It is currently in production and is on date for what was expected from this last attempt. and to all our delight Jonathan Breck is returning as the infamous god like beast.

Below are the brief snippets which help assure us that all is going to planJeepers-Crepers-III-movie-leeked-images-2
