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.

 

AHS is back!

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.

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.
