John Landis says Universal's Dark Universe isn't respectful of the monsters

Last week I shared a box office prediction post that said Universal's Dark Universe kick-off flick THE MUMMY , starring Tom Cruise was only set to make about $30M this past weekend. Turns out the film did (slightly) better than that and scored $32M. As I said in that post and will say again here, that may not seem like a small chunk of change, but when you consider that even...

The Mummy reboot may already be a flop at the box office

Well, that was fast. Usually, I am one that keeps mucho up-to-date on all things related to the box office. I don't tend to post many stories about that here as peeps don't seem to care nearly as much as I do about such things. I get that some of the most classic flicks of our genre made zero bucks at the box office - and also that some of the worst have made bucko...

Spoilers: The Mummy has an awesome The Mummy (1999) easter egg

I don't know about this upcoming THE MUMMY starring Tom Cruise. Truth be told I was a bit off-put by the movie once it was announced that Tom Cruise was going to be headlining the flick. Now, let me just say right here and now, I have nothing against Cruise. I couldn't care less about all of his less-than-favorable antics and/or which church he does or doesn't go to....

Recently it was announced that not only was Universal creating their own cinematic universe of classic movie monsters but also that the next film in line for the reboot treatment was BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN . I'm excited about this new take on the material as I was slightly disappointed by the lack of actual Bride of Frankenstein in the original. I know, it's an utter...

That said, we try to keep the horror spirit alive and well down here with such things as Spooky Empire's Weekend of Horror and Universal Studios' annual Halloween Horror Nights .

Split 2 starts shooting soon with a bigger budget

Man, all of this SPLIT 2, UNBREAKABLE 2, GLASS movie business is getting a bit confusing, huh? I mean by this point - with SPLIT having hit VOD and Blu-ray - anyone who cares what SPLIT actually was (i.e. UNBREAKABLE 2) already knows the secret. At least I hope they do considering I just ruined it about five separate times in the last few seconds. But all the same GLASS...
