Canceled Friday the 13th film aimed for winter-set sequel

A few months back we let you guys know that HANNIBAL and CHANNEL ZERO writer Nick Antosca's draft of an 80's-set FRIDAY THE 13TH flick hit the web. I don't know about you but I snatched it up and devoured it within hours. And let me just say, it was f*cking awesome. Unfortunately Paramount got cold feet on the release of the Antosca and director David Buckner's...

Trailer arrives for David Bruckner's Friday the 13th release The Ritual

In a better world, FRIDAY THE 13TH fans would currently have in their collections a 1980s-set F13 film that was directed by David Bruckner from a screenplay by Nick Antosca . Unfortunately, the powers that be decided not to go forward with Bruckner and Antosca's take on the material, instead opting to pursue an origin-ish remake... which ended up being canceled six weeks before...

Full plot for Friday the 13th: Part 13 revealed!

The FRIDAY THE 13TH saga has been one cursed fuc*ing production since we last saw the hockey-masked hooligan take out teens way back in 2009. Marcus Nispel's remake was a joy to behold and I was all geared-up to see many more outings with the new Derek Mears Jason. But that didn't happen. So the guys over at Platinum Dunes turned their attention to a script by...

Friday the 13th is dead in the water at Paramount

Last decade, Paramount Pictures - the distributor of the first eight installments in the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise - and Warner Bros./New Line Cinema - who released JASON GOES TO HELL , JASON X , and FREDDY VS.

A bachelor party turns sour in this clip from Siren

If horror movies have taught me anything, you should never follow a creepy stranger with a promise of drugs to a second location. The bachelor party in Gregg Bishop's  SIREN apparently hasn't learned this lesson yet. In this new clip from the opening of the film, which is expanded from the V/H/S short "Amateur Night," a douchey groomsman who would be played...

The trailer for Gregg Bishop's V/H/S spin-off Siren likes you

I wasn't very fond of the found footage horror anthology V/H/S , but one thing about it that I liked a lot was the performance of Hannah Fierman in the segment called "Amateur Night", which is about a group of guys who pick up a strange girl in a bar, and when they get her back to their hotel room she turns out to be even stranger than they thought. For me, Fierman's...

After spending around 20 months guiding the next FRIDAY THE 13TH through development hell, director David Bruckner dropped out of the project last December . While it's looking like that film might end up being directed by Breck Eisner, Bruckner has been busy making up for lost time and setting up other projects.

David Bruckner to helm sci-fi thriller Oswald

Writer-director David Bruckner has become a pretty prominent genre presence recently. On the strength of his "Amateur Night" segment in V/H/S , he briefly snagged the gig to direct the ill-fated FRIDAY THE 13TH movie, but his work has also been appreciated in his debut feature THE SIGNAL and - most recently - the roadside anthology SOUTHBOUND . However, now...
