The Fear Monger: Leatherface In 4K, A Horror Musical With Meat Loaf, And A Freaky New Oculus Trailer
We already knew that MPI/Dark Sky Films and Tobe Hooper were celebrating the 40th anniversary of his seminal 1974 classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre by debuting a restored version of the film at this year’s SXSW on Monday, followed by a limited theatrical run. But we weren’t quite sure just how big a restoration project this was until now.
Shyamalan hasn’t given away too much on the plot, unsurprisingly, but he announced a crew who previously worked on Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-nominated movies: The Wrestler cinematographer Maryse Alberti, Black Swan production designer Therese DePerez and costumer Amy Westcott, who worked on both of those films.
Creator of the often stellar comic that inspired AMC’s The Walking Dead, Robert Kirkman extends his creative reach into cinema, as he’ll produce the upcoming thriller Air for Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions.
Some movies, like Zombeavers, need nothing more than a ridiculously simple and solid hook: beavers that come back from the dead to murder the shit out of a group of people looking for a good time…in a cabin.
If you’re looking for more fantastical creatures than Scandinavian werewolves, you can find some vampires in today’s feature. As well, there is a pair of violent Asians and vintage practical effects gore. Just like your last birthday party. Now blow out the candles after wishing the following story didn’t exist.
Happy weekend, wilters of all that is unwilling. Can you guys believe that they’re officially changing the name of the Razzies into the I, Frankensteins? Maybe that was just a rumor though. The genre has been alive and well at Sundance, with loads of films seeing good reviews and distributor deals. (Spoiler: that’s what some of these stories are about.)
Good day, my decomposing decompadres. It's another good week for all things horror. This week you'll find yourself surrounded by mushrooms, swinging fists and a bunch of monster children. It's the life of a parent for you. Plus everyone's favorite guy who looks like Elijah Wood: Elijah Wood.
Good day, dwellers of the devil’s basement. Are you guys ready for Devil’s Due coming out later this week? Yeah, me either. Fortunately there are much more interesting and original films hitting theaters and VOD sites over the next few months. And two of them include Dan Fogler and an evil clown.
Horror fans know that Hollywood rarely gives the genre the kind of attention that more than $100 million calls for, so let's highlight eight of the most promising horrors of 2014, many of which still don’t have release dates.
Welcome to 2014, hop along horror hounds. It’s a new year, but apparently nobody told Blumhouse Productions, who are rehashing the same old crap with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, the first spinoff of that franchise and also the first genre film of the year
Earlier this year, Drafthouse Films began a contest allowing amateur filmmakers to enter their shorts as the “M” entry in the sequel to their twisted anthology flick The ABCs of Death. The recently announced winner Robert Boocheck is an accomplished commercial and music video director obviously inspired by a recent news rash that spread like wildfire.
Welcome back, seekers of all things spooky. Thanks for making last week’s debut a success! It’s Friday the 13th, so you’d think this would be a good time for Paramount to announce that they’ve hired Justin Bieber to star in their next Friday the 13th flick. But I guess they just don’t love their fans that much.
Welcome, gobblers of all things horror, to a new weekly feature we’ll be running here at Cinema Blend that will bind together five of the more interesting genre news stories of the week that didn’t necessarily warrant standalone articles. Gotta make room for all that superhero and Academy Awards sh*t, you know?
