Gizmo returns

It is no secret that HBO have had an animated Gremlins series in the works for quite some time and although at the moment we do not know a great deal about it  we are none the less excited that it is coming. What we do know however is that it is slated to be released later on this year to HBO’s streaming service and we are starting to feel as this may well be sooner rather than later as HBO announced earlier today that they are renewing it for a second season, they obviously believe in the following that this cult classic has. It is also interesting to note that Mountain Dew just felt the need to reunite Zach Galligan and Gizmo for the first time in 31 years- is this a potential teaser that we could get this series or even another movie in the very near future- we will let you decide but here is the commercial in full and we will keep you up to date with the progress of this franchise as we hear anything.

 

Cube remake

For years now it seems as though people have been talking about remaking the cult classic Cube from 1997 but it seems that one studio in Japan are finally deciding to go ahead and do just that. The film comes with a certain amount of intrigue as it is even being produced by original director Vincenzo Natali.

Below we have the trailer for the movie and we would love to know what you think about it.

The Japanese Cube remake – directed by Yasuhiko Shimizu – will be released in Japan October 22nd, though no official North American release as of yet. But we’ll keep you updated.

Rapper 50 Cent to team up with Eli Roth

It will probably come as no surprise to most of you that I am in no means a fan of rap, in fact I truly detest it. I am a huge fan of the Horror genre but much like Rap I tend to have a strong distaste for movies that are directed by Eli Roth. I watched all of the Hostel movies and in my humble opinion I just believe this franchise to be a poor excuse to show excessive gore. The story telling in the Hostel franchise leaves a lot to be desired, in a word there is none which makes the plot hard to follow. There is no real character progression and actually I have a hard time remembering any of the characters. I am sure that Mr Roth is a wonderful guy, he comes across as very personable, I just do not see him as the Horror icon that he is portrayed as today.

Well now that my rant is over I can tell you about the latest news out right out of Hollywood regarding the Horror genre. Reports would in fact appear that 5o Cent after conquering both the Rap industry and more recently the small screen with his ABC drama, for life- he now plans to conquer the Horror genre. It would appear that the Rapper has just signed a 3 movie deal to work alongside Eli Roth with indie studio 3BlackDot. As of now there is no information on what these movies may contain but it does not seem as though he is really concerned by controversy and Eli Roth’s resume should tell you the same so it will be very interesting to see what comes of this, although I do not have high expectations of what we can expect. We will keep you posted as this story develops.

Megan Fox returns to Horror

Megan Fox will once again grace screens in a horror film in the upcoming Till Death. The film will be directed by S.K. Dale from a script by Jason Carvey. The concept for the film is interesting to say the least.

The movie will tell the Tales From the Crypt style story of a wife (played by Fox) who is left handcuffed to her dead husband as part of a sickening revenge plot and must survive two hired killers on their way to finishing the job.

Production is scheduled to begin in Bulgaria next month and we will keep you posted as we hear more.

Annabelle Wallis joins James Wan’s new horror film

Annabelle Wallis has joined the cast of James Wan’s new horror movie. The 34-year-old actress has signed up to star in the secretive film which is being made from a story by Wan and Ingrid Bisu, the Malaysian-Australian director’s fiancée who starred in ‘The Nun’. Wallis has  previously starred in the 2014 Conjuring Universe movie ‘Annabelle’ and Universal’s 2017 reboot of ‘The Mummy’. Wan intends to shoot his latest horror movie this fall before starting work on the sequel to DC Comics film ‘Aquaman’.

Although the plot of the New Line horror is a closely-guarded secret, the 42-year-old filmmaker has teased it will be a “hard-R thriller” and a return to his “indie roots” with “old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets”.  On Wan’s official Facebook page, he said: “There’s been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is… all I’ll say is, I’m super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller. “An original horror idea with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets. That’s all I’ll say for now.” Wan is responsible for creating the Conjuring Universe back in 2013 with the first film in the franchise and he also co-created the ‘Saw’ and ‘Insidious’ franchises.
