‘Somebody’s Darling’ Review
Written by Jason McDonald, December 11, 2017
There are certain subjects that take a deft hand to approach and, when tackled, should be done so with a purpose and not just as a trivial plot detail.  For example, a subject like rape culture is one that will make people bristle if mishandled.  In ‘Somebody’s Darling’ we see a supernatural take on the

Written by Jason McDonald, December 8, 2017
In just under a year we’ll be finally getting a new entry in the “Halloween” series and, as a result, you should expect to be hearing more production news in the coming months.  So far we’ve learned that Jamie Lee Curtis was reprising her role as Laurie Strode and that Judy Greer has signed on

[Trailer] ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Reveals a World on the Brink of Disaster
Written by Jason McDonald, December 8, 2017
I don’t know if “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” will really delve into the ethical quandary they propose in the trailer below, but I love the question of what responsibility do we have to save a creature that shouldn’t be around, but is because of human meddling.  That premise alone has me captured my interest in

Written by Jason McDonald, December 7, 2017
The hype machine is putting in work for the upcoming release of the “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom” trailer.  If you’ve been keeping up with the little teases and reveals, you might either be feeling burnt out or overflowing with sweet anticipation.  Thankfully, I’ve been trying to ignore it so I’ll feel completely fresh and ready for it

Disney is in Talks to Buy Fox Again – Alien and Predator Could Join the House of Mouse
Written by Jason McDonald, December 4, 2017
Back in early November we heard the first rumblings that Disney was interested in purchasing certain parts of the Fox empire, namely film division 20th Century Fox.  After the initial news reports came out, it was revealed that the talks had fallen through and that the acquisition wouldn’t happen. Well . . . looks like they’re

Guillermo del Toro Turned Down an Offer to Helm Universal’s Monster Universe
Written by Jason McDonald, December 3, 2017
We live a world of infinite “what-ifs” and “what could have beens.”  Recently we learned that there could have been a Cheech and Chong meets Jason movie.  And while that would have been an amazing movie to have on my shelf, it doesn’t break my heart quite as much as the revelation that Guillermo del Toro

Danny McBride Says He Wants New ‘Halloween’ to be More Dread than Gore
Written by Jason McDonald, December 3, 2017
Danny McBride is in the news again talking about “Halloween.”  At this point we don’t know a whole lot about “Halloween,”  but we seem to be getting lots of soundbites about it. I have a lot of faith that Danny McBride will do right by the franchise, but I’m really hoping we don’t look back

New ‘Friday the 13th’ Documentary Explores ‘Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday’
Written by Chris Savage, November 29, 2017
As you guys know, the retrospective documentary, Crystal Lake Memories, is pretty much the be all end all of all Friday the 13th docs, and while it is in-depth, it appears that there is much more to tell, so much more that we are getting a documentary solely focused on perhaps the most infamous of all

Here’s the Character that’ll Crossover Between ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ and ‘Walking Dead’
Written by Jason McDonald, November 27, 2017
So, if for some reason this is a big spoiler for you, be warned.  Last month we learned that “The Walking Dead” and “Fear the Walking Dead” would finally “collide” with a crossover.  At the time, all we knew was that one character from one show would appear in another.  Well, tonight on “Talking Dead”

A ‘Cheech and Chong vs Jason’ Movie was Briefly Considered and Quickly Rejected
Written by Jason McDonald, November 23, 2017
Man, can you imagine all of the movie ideas that have briefly existed only to be shot down in a pitch meeting?  For as many terrible ideas there are out there, I’m sure more than a few good ones died on the vine before they even had a chance.  Take, for example, Cheech and Chong

Chiller to Go Off the Air By the End of the Year
Written by Jason McDonald, November 17, 2017
Remember how much of a bummer it was when FEARnet was gutted and folded into Chiller back in 2014? That was a sucker punch, but surely Comcast had some great plan for their horror network that would ensure the death of FEARnet would not be in vain.  Perhaps it would lead to Chiller having a long and

The Strangers are Back in the First Teaser Trailer for ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’
Written by Jason McDonald, November 17, 2017
It’s been nearly ten years since the Strangers terrorized a young Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman.  And in that time so many things have changed in the world, it kind of makes you wonder what the Strangers were up to.  Well, whatever they were doing, it looks like they’re finally ready to get back to

The Rock and Negan take on Giant Animals in the First Trailer for ‘Rampage’
Written by Jason McDonald, November 17, 2017
I love that we’re living in a golden era of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but he’s definitely tapped into a Negan-esque persona that he seems to be bringing into other rolls.  Just watch this trailer for “Rampage” and try not to see Negan, he even does that little lean that Negan does. It’s crazy. “Rampage”, based

Silence is Survival in this First Trailer for ‘A Quiet Place’
Written by Jason McDonald, November 17, 2017
“A Quiet Place” has been one of those films that just floats on the edge of my radar.  I’ve heard bits and pieces and been mildly interested in seeing what this film was going to turn into, but I think this trailer just completely sold me on it. The film is directed by John Krasinski

Fox Announces the Premiere Date for ‘The X-Files’
Written by Jason McDonald, November 16, 2017
Here we go again.  I’m starting to get my hopes up just like I did for the last season of “The X-Files” before Chris Carter expertly dashed them by the end of the limited run.  Maybe this time will be different? Please? And while we wait to see what the final verdict will be for the

‘Night of the Living Dead’ and ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Are Getting Criterion Releases
Written by Jason McDonald, November 16, 2017
I don’t buy a whole lot of physical media these days, but Criterion releases are those kind of definitive editions that are hard to resist.  I’m a sucker for their awesome cases, visual upgrades, and compilation of special features.  All things that speak to my cinephile needs.  And all that is made even better when it’s

The Golden Globes May Nominate ‘Get Out’ for the Best Comedy Category
Written by Jason McDonald, November 15, 2017
Yeah, I know big award shows are lame and don’t really matter, but they’re still fun to watch.  Well, by watch I mean I have it on in the background while I do something better with my time.  However, it’s always awesome to see a horror film get some recognition.  This year we’ve had a

The Writer of ‘IT’ Will Be Writing the Script for an ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark?’ Movie
Written by Jason McDonald, November 14, 2017
What a hell of a career this guy has suddenly had.  “IT” writer Gary Dauberman went from writing the hit 2007 SyFy channel caliber film “Blood Monkey” to “Annabelle” to “IT.”  And now he’ll have the chance to revitalize a childhood classic. According to Tracking Board Paramount has pegged Gary Dauberman to write the script

New ‘Halloween’ Movie May Alter the Ending of the Original
Written by Jason McDonald, November 14, 2017
That’s right, Danny McBride has found a way of controlling both space and time and is currently plotting to travel back to 1978 to change the original ending of Carpenter’s “Halloween.”  Okay, it’s not that extreme, but it looks like the new “Halloween” movie may alter how the ending of the original “Halloween” played out.
