The Original Ghostface Mask Returns for the New Season of ‘Scream’
Written by Jason McDonald, September 21, 2017
I, along with many people, had some initial concerns about the MTV “Scream” series.  It was hard to imagine MTV managing to pull off a good “Scream” series especially when they revealed their horrendous new version of the mask which looked like it was giving a blow job. However, I personally thought the show was

It has just been announced that Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role of Laurie Strode in David Gordon Green’s Halloween, which hits theatres on October 19, 2018.

John Landis Says He Advised Max Landis Not to Do a Remake of ‘An American Werewolf in London’
Written by Jason McDonald, September 15, 2017
I know the words “remake” and “An American Werewolf in London” being so close together in a sentence will cause most horror fans to involuntarily gag, but try to bare with me on this one. In an interview with Collider John Landis opened up his son’s (Max Landis) upcoming remake of his 1981 classic film “An

AMC FearFest Adds ‘Cult of Chucky’ to it’s October Lineup
Written by Jason McDonald, September 15, 2017
The Halloween season is right around the corner so it’s time to start gearing up for the usual annual traditions.  There’s pumpkin carving, haunted houses, fall beer, and AMC’s FearFest. Now, I hate to be a downer, but FearFest has really gone down in quality over the years.  It used to be a lot longer

[REVIEW] ‘It’ Joins the Ranks of Stephen King Greats
Written by Jason McDonald, September 12, 2017
As the release date for “It” came closer I started to become keenly aware of how much I was anticipating its release.  It was a little concerning because I started to dread the possibility that I was setting my expectations a bit too high.  Thankfully, “It” was the rare film that not only met those

First Poster and Trailer for ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Are Here
Written by Jason McDonald, September 8, 2017
This one’s on me.  Somehow the first trailer for “Insidious: The Last Key” dropped… and it totally flew under my radar.  Well a new poster came out today so I get to rectify that mistake with a new post and an outdated one. Yay! “Insidious: The Last Key” is being directed by Adam Robitel (“The

‘The Purge: The Island’ Will Take Us Back to the Very First Purge
Written by Jason McDonald, September 8, 2017
We’ve known sometime now that the next “Purge” film would likely be a prequel, but thanks to some loose lips we now know a great deal more about what the film will be about. “Purge” series director and writer James DeMonaco did an interview with Vulture recently where he got to talking about the next

Trailer for Documentary ’78/52′ Dissects the Shower Scene from ‘Psycho’
Written by Jason McDonald, August 31, 2017
This sounds uniquely ambitious.  Imagine take one scene from one movie and devoting a whole documentary to it.  That’s what director Alexandre O. Phillippe has done with the legendary shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho.” Documentary “78/52,” named so for the 78 set-ups and 52 cuts in the scene, will examine the shower scene frame

Stephen King is Reclaiming the Film Rights to his Classic Stories
Written by Jason McDonald, August 31, 2017
Stephen King has been pretty damn hot this year, even if all of his adaptations haven’t been successful.  We’ve seen a new TV series based on “The Mist” and “Mr. Mercedes” and the big screen featured the long awaited adaptation of “The Dark Tower” and a new remake of “IT.”  Even if every one of

‘Gallows 2’ Was Secretly in the Works and is Having Test Screenings
Written by Jason McDonald, August 30, 2017
Remember “The Gallows?”  It was one released back in 2015 to some pretty poor reviews, but since it was a micro-budget horror film it earned a pretty decent chunk of cash.  Enough so that someone apparently greenlit a sequel to the film and didn’t tell anyone. Thanks to a posting on 1iota, a site used

Threats of Protesting Lead to Cancellation of ‘Jeepers Creepers 3’ Premiere Screening
Written by Jason McDonald, August 30, 2017
There’s no getting around it. Victor Salva was convicted of some pretty god awful things.  After some deep consideration I decided that I wouldn’t be covering “Jeepers Creepers 3” on the site.  I know that goes against what I’m “supposed to do,” but the great thing about this site is we can talk about whatever

The $900 Million Lawsuit Over ‘The Conjuring’ is Moving Forward
Written by Jason McDonald, August 29, 2017
Notorious B.I.G. warned us that things like this could happen, but Warner Bros apparently wasn’t paying attention when he told us that mo money could, in fact, lead to mo problems. With the “Conjuring” universe continuing to expand, it looks like Warner Bros could have potentially more to lose. When author Gerald Brittle penned ‘The

Written by Jason McDonald, August 27, 2017
I can’t believe we’re having to do this again so soon after George Romero, but here are we. Acclaimed director Tobe Hooper passed away on Saturday. Hooper, who was 74 years old away, passed away on Saturday in Sherman Oaks, California.  At this time his cause of death has not been revealed by the coroner’s

Adam Green’s Fourth ‘Hatchet’ Film is Complete & Debuted Last Night!
Written by Chris Savage, August 23, 2017
Well, kudos to the guys and gals involved in keeping this one under wraps for something like two years!

Written by Jason McDonald, August 22, 2017
Director Tommy Wirkola is currently keeping busy with the release of his upcoming Netflix film “Whatever Happened to Monday?” But that doesn’t mean the director has forgotten his zombie baby. While speaking with Entertainment Weekly, the director revealed that he wasn’t done with his infamous zombie Nazi series “Dead Snow.”  In fact, it seems he
