AHS is back!

The long awaited next series of American Horror Story now has an official release date, FOX announced that  the crossover show will begin to air on September 12th falling right in line with it’s fall lineup of shows as expected. The new season will be a crossover of Season 1 Murder house and Season 3 Coven which “Spells” exciting times for fans of the show (See what I did there). The show is now going into Season 8 and a lot of former cast members have been teased at although nothing concrete has been announced yet. Emma Roberts is rumored to make a return as Madison even though she died not once but twice during Coven and we could even see a return of Jessica Lange although her character also met her demise twice. It has also been teased that Taissa Farmiga may return.

Selena Gomez eats eyeball

Selena Gomez has come an awful long way since her Disney days but some of her fans had a shock this week when some behind the scenes footage was released of the new thriller that she has been working on. In the pictures you can see her eating icing from a leg, chewing on a finger and even sucking……an eyeball ( Which quite frankly is a little disturbing).  Lets just say some of her fans were not amused by this at all.

Fans only got a taste of what’s to come, since the full film will soon stream on Instagram’s new long-form video platform, IGTV. “This is disgusting wtf is wrong with you,” one angry commenter wrote while another added: “This is awful! I am in total shock. What happened to my Selena??” Some even went a level further with their responses to the unsettling clip, posting: “She is not okay! Give me old Selena. GOD help Selena.” Even though a few suggested this would be a pitfall in her career, other Selana fans had her back to the fullest.

Jessica Chastain joins Cast of IT Part 2

Jessica Chastain was chosen for the role of Beverly in the second part of Stephen King’s IT back in February and has now came out and told the world exactly why she accepted such a role. Jessica recently came out in an interview and told the world that the reason she is ready to reprise this role is that she is a huge fan of the King of Horror, Mr Stephen King and she loves  how the Horror Industry has begun to empower women within the genre. She admits that she wanted the role since last November and when the opportunity arose she jumped at the chance. She was actually quoted as saying this:

“I actually love the horror genre, because I found that in the past — I think things are changing now — but in the past the horror genre [in particular] really has great female characters,” Chastain said. “I’m very happy to work again in a genre that actually has empowered women. And in that genre, you usually see the person surviving at the end being the lady. Do you know what I mean? She conquers the monsters or the bad guys, and she walks away at the end.”

It is awesome to see more and more Women making a success in an industry that for the last thirty or fourty years has been a very male driven environment and we are excited to see so many wonderful women making their mark on the genre we love and we wish Jessica all the luck in her role.

 

Deep Blue sea 2 inspired by real shark?

Recently I watched the long anticipated movie sequel to Deep Blue Sea, it was a fairly decent movie but one thing that struck me as odd was the killer baby sharks, they were more fearsome than their larger counterparts and that  got me to thinking, why would these tiny sharks be scarier than the larger sharks in the movie. The larger sharks could literally bite you in half with one chomp surely those were a much more fearsome predator. The miniature sharks kind of reminded me of a shoal of Piranha as they decimated everything they ran into in the underground base, only they did not have the same characteristics of Piranha’s they did not rip at their victims they seemed to merely latch onto them. This got me to thinking as to whether the film-makers based these little monsters on anything that lives in the real world and I stumbled upon this fascinating creature.  Introducing:

The Cookie Cutter Shark

The Cookie Cutter shark is a species of Dogfish and they normally inhabit warmer climates, they have the biggest teeth to body size ratio of all the Shark species and are certainly not something you would ever want to run into. These elite predatory fish have been known to take bites out of unsuspecting Whales  and even Great White Sharks, they are the ultimate sneak attack predators. These small sharks are not really known for attacking humans but there has been a few isolated cases worldwide. The Cookie Cutter Shark leaves a circular bite on it’s victims which is where it gets it’s name from. These tiny sharks only grow up to about 16 inches but have been known to take on prey much larger than itself. They also back in the 60s caused a problem to nuclear subs as they were biting holes in them causing them to leak important fluids, so in perspective this fish can chew through steel. Would be a great fish for a Horror Movie, well in fact they did make a Cameo in Shark Night 3D in 2011 making it highly possible that these sharks were in fact the basis for the Sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2. Although we do not know to much about these elusive Sharks we do know that we really don’t want to be bitten by one as this is the affect it can have when attacking a Human.

And it is even brave enough to do this to a Great White; one of the most feared predators of the deep.

So what do you guys think? Did these vicious little Sharks spawn the Sharks in this movie? Watch the movie and let us know your thoughts.

Friday 13th Game content suspended

Sadly for fans of the Friday the 13th game all up coming DLC has been suspended for the near future, this comes as no real surprise as the legal battle for the rights to the franchise has been ongoing for years. The franchise has seemingly been bounce back and forth between Warner Bros and Paramount but the original creator Victor Miller claims that he owns the rights to the franchise and wants to claim it back from current owners Warner Bros. Going into a legal battle with a media giant such as WB is no easy feat and this could drag out for a while. This legal battle must be heartbreaking for fans of the game as this official statement was released by game developers Gun earlier this week:

“Friday the 13th: The Game has established a loyal and excited fan base over the last year. As publisher/developer, Gun and IllFonic have made every effort to provide our fans with an authentic and great gaming experience.”

“As many in our community may be aware, a legal claim has been made which could affect all future Friday the 13th intellectual property. Although in the past the game has not been subject to any such claim, new content and material going forward will be affected. An initial decision in this case was expected in October 2017, but no decision has yet been issued. The court review of the legal rights is in process, but final resolution may take some time. Until the claim rights can be dismissed or resolved, no new content can be released.”

“When we originally learned that the game fell within the crosshairs of this legal dispute, we tried to balance the creation of new content requested by our fans against the maintenance and bug fixing that our community expects and deserves. We attempted to do both within the limits of the legal case.”

“We’ve now been forced to accept that the lawsuit makes future content for the game, including alternate play modes, new playable Jasons and Counselors, and new maps, unfeasible now or in the future. Although the listed content types will be affected, we remain committed to launching dedicated servers on our console platforms and providing the continued maintenance and bug fixing important to supporting our fan base.”

“So what does this mean exactly? There will be no additional content added to Friday the 13th: The Game. This includes “Uber Jason”, The Grendel Map, Jason Kill Packs, Clothing, Emotes and new Counselors.”
