The Fear Monger: Phantasm V Exists, Tucker & Dale 2 Soon Will, But Blair Witch 3 Won't
Good day, throttlers of all things pulsing. Itís a beautiful day in the neighborhood as we head towards that most important of all holidays, April Foolís Day. Fred Waltonís April Foolís Day is almost required viewing as you stuff peanut cans with spring-filled snakes and inundate Twitter with fake Marvel casting rumors.
March 29 doesnít have any specific horror movies whose screenings are correlative, but itís still a good day to read about the more exciting horror headlines of the week. In bite-sized news, head to the Stanley Film Festival site to see what this year will be bringing to the famed Shining hotel's annual fest. Shameless star Cameron Monaghan has signed on for Franck Khalfounís new Amityville. And because Lowell Deanís WolfCop was such a hit last week, itís almost necessary to let you guys know you can create your own tagline for the film in a contest via its Facebook or Twitter page, and the winner gets their quote featured on that amazing poster we showed you. Get in on that and check out another image ripe for living room wallpaper.
Now, onto the weekly column!
Phantasm V is Real! And Itís Already Been Filmed!Itís hard to believe that itís been 16 years since Angus Scrimm last spooked the bejesus out of audiences in Don Coscarelliís Phantasm IV: Oblivion, but series fans can finally look forward to seeing more of this disturbing story as Phantasm V: Ravager has already been shot completely in secret. Unfortunately, Coscarelli handed the directing reins over to visual effects artist David Hartman, who most recently served as supervising director of the animated series Transformers Prime and worked with Coscarelli on Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies at the End. The two co-wrote the film together.
As seen in the teaser trailer above, everyone is up to their old tricks again, as Mike (A. Michael Baldwin) and Reggie (Reggie Bannister) finally get to the heart of what this series has been about all these years, and may possibly take down the Tall Man once and for all. Or maybe everyone dies and there are no happy endings. Familiar faces Bill Thornbury and Kat Lester reprise their roles from what is one of the most consistent horror franchises out there, and both Soscarelli and Hartman promise surprises in this long-awaited follow-up. Itís truly been ages since Iíve seen any of these flicks, so itís high time for another visit to Boulton mortuary. Check out the new poster below, which sadly isnít equipped with the same "GoPro camera attached to a bullet" stunts used in the trailer.
