A Sequel to ‘Tales from the Hood’ is in the Works
Written by Jason McDonald, January 8, 2018
That’s a title that I’m both surprised to be writing now and shocked that I’m writing for the first time.  It looks like we’re actually getting a sequel to “Tales from the Hood” and it’s pretty amazing that we’ve never gotten one before. “Tales from the Hood” was an anthology film released in 1995 that

PSA: ‘Before I Wake’ is On US Netflix Now
Written by Jason McDonald, January 8, 2018
For anyone outside of the US you might be saying to yourself “What’s the big deal? I saw ‘Before I wake’ a long time ago.”  Well, guess what?  Despite the fact that the movie was available in most territories last year, there has been no legitimate way of watching it in the US so far. 

Why We Might See a Sequel to ‘Insidious: Chapter 2’
Written by Jason McDonald, January 7, 2018
With the latest ‘Insidious’ prequel installment in theaters I’ve seen more than a handful of comments referencing the cliffhanger “Insidious: Chapter 2” left us with.  Now, before I get into further details, I have to say that this post will be getting into spoilers for all of the “Insidious” films including “Insidious: The Last Key.” 

[Review] ‘Insidious: The Last Key’ Could be the Last Hurrah
Written by Jason McDonald, January 7, 2018
It’s been about two years since the last “Insidious” entry and, while I mostly enjoyed “Insidious: Chapter 3”, it felt like the franchise was already starting to run its course.  With “Insidious: The Last Key” we at least get some fresh blood in the form of “The Taking of Deborah Logan” director Adam Robitel.  Will

Blumhouse Dares You to Watch the Trailer for Truth or Dare
Written by Jason McDonald, January 4, 2018
We’ve got a Blumhouse movie coming out this week so of course there’s going to be a trailer for a new Blumhouse attached to it.  What I find interesting about this film, though, is that the full name appears to be “Blumhouse’s Truth or Dare.”  Pretty rad that Blumhouse can just attach his name to

‘Slender Man’ Unleashes First Official Trailer
Written by Jason McDonald, January 4, 2018
Yesterday we got our first look at the “Slender Man” poster and I had some thoughts about releasing a “Slender Man” movie in 2018 that I won’t reiterate here (I think it’s weird), but now we’re getting a proper look at it with our first trailer. In a small town in Massachusetts, four high school girls

The Next ‘Cloverfield’ Movie has Been Pushed Back to April 2018
Written by Jason McDonald, January 3, 2018
So speak of the devil! I was just talking about how the next Cloverfield movie was one of my most anticipated movies of 2018; however, there was something strange about the movie.  Up until today the movie was still listed as releasing on February 2, 2018.  That’s a month away and we haven’t seen a

Poster for ‘Slender Man’ Debuts . . . But is it Late to the Party?
Written by Jason McDonald, January 3, 2018
Slender Man may be the greatest Urban Legend ever produced by the internet.  There are certainly numerous “creepypasta” stories that are unsettling and good for a chill, but none have had the lasting impact as Slender Man. It’s no surprise that there have been a few attempts to adapt that story into a feature film,

Happy New Year everyone, how are we doing this lovely day?  Nursing a nasty little hangover? Try eating some spicy ramen, I find that really helps me. You know what else helps? Reading a list! We have a whole 365 days ahead of us and plenty of horror movies to enjoy on the horizon.  This

Most Disappointing Horror Movies of 2017
Written by Jason McDonald, December 31, 2017
This year was filled with plenty of highs when it came to the quality of films put out, but with so many peaks there are bound to be plenty of valleys. It’d be easy to pick out movies that are just plain bad, those come out all the time, so instead I opted to pick

Jason’s Top Ten Horror Movies of 2017
Written by Jason McDonald, December 31, 2017
We did it everyone. Pat yourself on the back, we survived another year . . . somehow. And, hey, despite all the madness going on it was actually an amazing year for movies! We’re definitely gonna need all this escapist entertainment in the coming apocalypse. This was an amazing year for horror and one of

[Review] ‘The Shape of Water’ is a Mesmerizing Love Letter to Monsters
Written by Jason McDonald, December 26, 2017
It’s no secret that Guillermo Del Toro has been fascinated with classic movie monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein’s Monster, but one monster he seems to have had a particular interest in is the Creature from the Black Lagoon.  Years ago Guillermo was in talks with Universal to remake the classic creature feature, but like so

[Review] ‘Bright’ Opens Up a World of Potential
Written by Jason McDonald, December 26, 2017
I can’t think of a premise that has gotten me more interested in a potential film franchise than the premise for “Bright.”  What would our world be like today if “Lord of the Rings” was a historical record and not a fantasy novel?  How would Orcs and Elves fit in to modern society and what

Nick Castle Returns to Play Michael Myers in New ‘Halloween’
Written by Jason McDonald, December 21, 2017
While we don’t know a lot about the new “Halloween” film coming out next year, there’s certainly been one constant theme thus far and that’s a desire to return the film to its roots. There have been some good steps in that direction, but none have been more surprising than the one we’ve learned today.

First look at Focus Features’ ‘The Little Stranger’
Written by Chris Savage, December 20, 2017
Have you guys read Sarah Waters’ novel The Little Stranger? If so, it will be interesting to see what you make of the feature film adaptation of the novel from director Lenny Abrahamson (“Room”), as we have learned that the feature will hit theatres this August 31, 2018. Also, along with this announcement, we have for

Alternate and Deleted Scenes from the ‘It’ Blu-Ray Have Been Revealed
Written by Jason McDonald, December 20, 2017
To say that I’m excited for the release of blu-ray release of “It” next year is an understatement.  For one, I just want to have that movie on a solid replay for about a weekend and secondly I can’t wait to see what sort of deleted and alternate scenes it would feature.  Thankfully, the blu-ray

‘Machete Kills Again . . . In Space’ Could Still Happen According to Danny Trejo
Written by Jason McDonald, December 20, 2017
Maybe this is an unpopular opinion, but I only thought that the “Machete” films were just okay.  I think they’re a fantastic idea and loved the original “Grindhouse” trailer, but it just never came together in a way that I really enjoyed.  But, hey, that’s just me and I know a lot of people were

The Billion Dollar ‘Conjuring’ Lawsuit Has Come to an End with a Surprising Twist
Written by Jason McDonald, December 15, 2017
Back in August it looked we were heading for one helluva a court battle.  One side we had an author who penned the books that may have served as the inspiration for the current “Conjuring” universe.  On the other side we had a giant movie studio who profited greatly off of the “Conjuring” films.  And

‘Alien’ and ‘Predator’ are Now Owned by Disney- It’s a Small World After All
Written by Jason McDonald, December 15, 2017
It was just ten ideas ago where we talked about Disney’s machinations to consume Fox and in that timespan those plans came to fruition.  Disney is now the proud owner of 20th Century Fox. Disney announced today that all parties involved have finally reached an agreement that would allow the House of Mouse to purchase movie

It’s Time to Return to Silent Hill
Written by Jason McDonald, December 14, 2017
Last week, during the Video Game Awards, they showed a rather lengthy trailer for “Death Stranding” the new video game from Hideo Kojima featuring Norman Reedus (Walking Dead) and Guillermo Del Toro.  While I’m cautiously excited for that game, it got me thinking about the now dead “Silent Hills” game that had lit the world
