If The Thing prequel is set to showcase anything at all, it has to be the alien-induced slaughter at the Norwegian camp site. Thus far, though, only Americans have been announced in terms of casting. Is it time that we finally get the names of the aforementioned Crazy Swedes?
With shooting scheduled to begin soon on director Matthijs van Heijningen's prequel to The Thing up in British Columbia and Toronto, the film's producers took a moment to talk about what they found on the project to be "irresistible".
We all know that Matthijs van Heijningen's The Thing is set to begin filming in Vancouver, Canada this month, but there still seems to be an issue about whether this flick is a prequel or a remake for some fearful fans. Joel Edgerton, one of the film's stars, has finally put all that to bed with his latest statements.
If there's one key element that's important to whether or not The Thing prequel will be successful, it is who will be handling the film's special effects.
Any horror fan worth his or her weight in gore should be amped up for George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead, and if you’re planning on attending the Texas Frightmare Weekend, that’s exactly what you’re going to be seeing. That and so much more!
The prequel to John Carpenter's classic The Thing has landed its first two stars who will surely duke it out with not only the shape shifting alien but also them crazy Swedes.
A lengthy new video interview with horror master John Carpenter concerning his return to the big screen with his highly anticipated film The Ward has surfaced online, and we've got it for ya!
We have to admit we are guardedly optimistic about the upcoming prequel to the John Carpenter classic The Thing. If placed in the right hands, given today's leaps in special effects, it could be a total winner. Or it can turn into one hell of a CGI laden mess.
A new promo picture from John Carpenter's The Ward showed up on the Premiere Picture website, and we've got a look at it for you.
If you're anything like us, we're pretty sure that you cannot wait to see John Carpenter's return to the big screen with The Ward. Thankfully to help lessen the burden of the wait, a new (in hopefully a series) video production diary has hit the Net.
An eagle-eyed reader by the name of RJMacCready directed us to the Premiere Picture website, where some early artwork and images for John Carpenter's long awaited return to the big screen, The Ward, were just waiting for us!
It's been around a decade since John Carpenter last got behind the camera for a big screen film. As huge Carpenter fans, we couldn't have been happier to learn about his latest endeavor, The Ward. Finally a bit of footage has been posted online, and we've got your road map for where to look.
A true bounty of goods await those who have a few extra dollars to spend on DVDs this week what with Grace, Deadgirl, and (can you believe it?) Phantasm II finally hitting the home market, An American Werewolf in London and Army of Darkness bowing on Blu-ray, and NBC's Fear Itself anthology series getting released in its entirety. And that's just the beginning!
Has John Carpenter really been away from the big screen for almost ten years? Okay, maybe Ghosts of Mars wasn't amazing, but I thought it had enough going for it to warrant a look. That said, I don't think Carpenter's done with the scares just yet, and I'm pulling for The Ward to be his triumphant return. Oh yeah, there's some new casting news, too.
Prequels continue to be all the rage these days, and I honestly can't seem to figure out why. Is it really necessary to spell out and overstate things that might've worked best left unexplained?
