Gremlins 3 graced with a twisted script

Chris Columbus, the man behind the pen which scrawled the first 2 iconic Gremlins movie has finished a script for the much awaited third addition, and by his reports in a  recent interview, it is ‘twisted’!

Columbus deliberated on /Freak, saying he wanted the ‘twisted sensibility’ that Gremlins had.

The movie is still in the works with no other word, but we have a script, and that is more than exciting.

BREAKING! ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ info has reached the web

In light of my recent post about upcoming horror movie Jeeper Creepers, it seemed only days ago we ad no info just an overall idea and hint of what the newest Creeper film was going to be. YET HERE WE ARE, ONLY A NUMBER OF HOURS LATER.

Sorry about the caps, but for me and many other 90’s kids, i (we) were introduced into the infamous Creeper in my early horror viewing days, and the nostalgia and terror that courses through my veins when i see the title Jeepers Creepers is electrifying. Yet without further ado, here is the latest information release in regards to the new film

It is set to e released on September 26, and will run for 1 hour and 40 minutes.

Friday Night Fright – August 18th

Due to some research i carried out this week in relation to some of the scariest movies ever created (for the purpose of doing an upcoming list (stay tuned)), this weeks recommendations will all be scary in one way or another. Make sure to have a buddy for this week.

Horror Buffs: The Orphanage (2007) – This Spanish gem by the original name of El Orfanato went under the radar for majority of English speaking countries due to it’s non English audio, unfortunately this made itself a victim of it’s own beauty. Regardless of the need for subtitles if you do not speak the language, this dark and sinister horror will stick with you. It is utter terrifying and very individualistic in it’s directing. A real indie surprise for many that skipped over it.

 

Beginners: The Descent (2005) – A group of girls embark on a rock-climbing adventure through a vacant cave, and what do you know, it turns horribly wrong. Despite the premise and plot not surprising in any way shape or form, the claustrophobia and exuberant scares throughout the film will keep you gripping tight to your pillow/drink/lover/dog. This is action horror that all fans need to watch, as it has been claimed to be one of the scariest movies ever created, and one of the best horror films of the 21st century.

 

Casual Fans: Evil Dead (2013) – I know it’s game to challenge the idea that originals are always better, but Fede Alvarez did an amazing job to remake a cult classic and the original of one of the greatest horror franchises in history. With an update in effects and acting, Bruce Campbell would even be proud of how well this remake was done. Fast, some jump scares, classic horror tropes and a bunch of gore, this splatter/supernatural horror will provide some great in movie scares. This non-stop excitement machine is one of my all time favourites, and makes for great group viewing.

 

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.

Upcoming horror remakes and their movements

Whether it is due to the fact that the lake of imagination is drying up, or some significant money is found in remakes, more and more horror greats and ageless films are being recreated within the new realm of horror. Here is a list of a few names that may catch your eye.
