Written by Jason McDonald, March 16, 2018
Last year we saw the attempted revitalization of one legendary ghost girl with the subpar release of “Rings.”  Not only did the film bomb with critics, it didn’t exactly light up the box office.  Not to be deterred, Sony is still moving forward with their reboot of another legendary ghost girl. Variety is reporting that

Written by Chris Savage, March 14, 2018
One zombie movie that is gaining a ton of traction is David Freyne’s upcoming flick The Cured. The film questions; what if a cure to the virus had been found but you remembered all the heinous acts you committed while being infected?

A ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Reboot Could Happen One Day
Written by Jason McDonald, March 14, 2018
TV reboots and revivals have been all the rage lately.  With Fox bringing back classics like “The X-Files” and “24” and CW pursuing a revival of “Roswell” it seems like the shows from my teen years all prime to make a comeback, but the one that would really get me going hasn’t been touched. Yet.

[Review] ‘The Strangers: Prey at Night’ – Get Reacquainted with Some Familiar Faces
Written by Jason McDonald, March 10, 2018
I saw “The Strangers” long after the hype of the original film had past.  I knew of the film’s legacy, but I was far enough removed to see it objectively and I came out thinking all the praise for it was well deserved.  It didn’t revolutionize the slasher genre, but the way it handled atmosphere was

AMC and Scott Gimple Want More ‘Walking Dead’ Spin-Offs
Written by Jason McDonald, March 7, 2018
There used to be a time when “The Walking Dead” was considered untouchable.  It crushed everything in its path and ruled the Sunday night airwaves with a rotting fist.

Written by Jason McDonald, March 5, 2018
Normally I don’t get all invested in the Oscar season, but this year is a particularly exciting one for horror fans. Two big releases from this past year are up for a substantial amount of nominations.  One is “Get Out” which had a huge impact this year as it delved into race at a time

Written by Jason McDonald, March 2, 2018
Remember when they joked about a 21 Jump Street/MIB crossover after “22 Jump Street?” And then that joke became dangerously real until it was mercifully killed off?  Well, half of that joke is still real as Sony is moving forward with a “Men in Black” spinoff film. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Sony is

Written by Jason McDonald, February 22, 2018
Alright, I admit that I’m eager to see “Jurassic World 2.”  It’s got explosions and big dinosaurs and my simple brain is delighted by that.  And when it hits it’ll probably get mixed to positive reviews with critics and do gangbusters in the box office.  So, yeah, it makes sense that Universal is already planning
