AMC theatres are having free screenings of Get Out on Presidents' Day

February 24th marks the one year anniversary of the release of writer/director Jordan Peele's film GET OUT , a movie that was a box office hit (it made $255 million worldwide on a budget under $5 million) and was well received not only by critics and horror fans (our own Chris Bumbray gave it an 8/10 review ), but also by members of the Academy. At next month's Oscars...

Kane Hodder had a cameo in Freddy vs. Jason

Fifteen years ago, the horror fan community was shocked to hear that four-time Jason Voorhees performer Kane Hodder had not been hired to reprise the role in the crossover event FREDDY VS. JASON - instead, the filmmakers chose to cast Canadian stuntman Ken Kirzinger (who had doubled Hodder in FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN and gets manhandled by Jason in that film)...

The Housemaid (Movie Review)

PLOT : A young woman's hiring as a housemaid at a rubber plantation in 1950s Vietnam seems to stir up the restless spirits of past plantation workers and the landowner's late wife. REVIEW : Writer/director Derek Nguyen's supernatural thriller THE HOUSEMAID is a film that might have been just as effective if it hadn't featured any genre elements at all. Even as it is, it functions...

Netflix's dark Sabrina series adds a warlock and the devil's handmaiden

Production begins this month on the first season of Netflix's dark, horrific take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch - a project that was going by (and might still have) the title Chilling Adventures of Sabrina . Kiernan Shipka will be playing the teenage witch herself in the series, and a supporting cast is starting to form around her. We had previously heard that Jaz Sinclair...

Images from Blumhouse's Halloween show references to sequels

John Carpenter, creator of the HALLOWEEN franchise and executive producer on the new sequel being produced by Malek Akkad and Blumhouse Productions, has said that the latest entry in the series picks up after his 1978 original and pretends that none of the other sequels were made. But while the events of those films may not have happened in the story crafted by Danny McBride and...

Now he's set to help bring a new entry in the tiny terrors sub-genre to the screen, a film titled TEDDY BEARS ARE FOR LOVERS .

Fisher, Wakefield, Greyeyes, and Tenney join True Detective season 3

The third season of the HBO crime anthology series True Detective is continuing to shape up quite nicely, with four new cast members having now signed on to co-star with the previously announced Mahershala Ali, Carmen Ejogo, Stephen Dorff, Scoot McNairy, and Mamie Gummer. Written by series creator Nic Pizzolatto (with Deadwood's David Milch earning a co-writing credit on one...

The Soska sisters' Rabid remake to be released by Shout! in the US

Two years after the project was first announced , twin sister directing duo Jen and Sylvia Soska's remake of David Cronenberg's 1977 body horror classic RABID is set to start filming in April - and before cameras start rolling, the project has already secured a U.S. distribution deal. The distribution and production arm of Shout! Factory has acquired the digital,...

Director Osgood Perkins claims A Head Full of Ghosts

Osgood Perkins' first two directorial efforts, THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER (a.k.a. FEBRUARY) and I AM THE PRETTY THING THAT LIVES IN THE HOUSE, have their fans, but I wouldn't count myself among them. At least THE BLACKCOAT'S DAUGHTER (pictured above) was somewhat interesting, but PRETTY THING didn't do anything for me at all. Perkins is now gearing up to make his...

John Carpenter to provide the score for Jean Reno thriller 1,200 Souls

Director Pablo Aragüés' fantasy thriller 1,200 SOULS has been slipping under our radar up to this point, but it has our attention in a big way after being mentioned on the latest episode of the Mick Garris-hosted podcast Post Mortem. The film was brought up by the guest - who happened to be legendary master of horror John Carpenter. During their conversation,...

Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus to star in slasher Hellfest

My favorite horror sub-genre is the slasher, and there aren't nearly enough slashers getting released these days for my liking. So I'm really looking forward to director Gregory Plotkin's upcoming film HELLFEST , which sounds like it will be providing some big screen slasher fun. Produced by Gale Anne Hurd and written by William Penick and Chris Sey, HELLFEST is...

Face-Off: Hellraiser vs. Candyman

Yesterday saw the release of HELLRAISER: JUDGMENT (you can pick up a copy at THIS LINK ), the tenth entry in the franchise that author Clive Barker began with his 1987 feature directorial debut. With HELLRAISER on the brain this week, I decided to pit Barker's film against what is probably the second most popular movie that has sprung from his imagination, Bernard Rose's 1992 film...
