*UPDATED!* The New Face of Myers?

Published

on

First Halloween casting? (click to see the whole thing!)**UPDATE: The boys at Bloody Disgusting just got the official confirmation that Daeg Faerch is, indeed, the new young Michael Myers!**

For right now this will all be filed under “rumor” since nothing is ever official until the studio or Rob Zombie says so. With that in mind we did get some interesting information this weekend about his Halloween remake and thought we should share…

First off, we got an e-mail from a resident of South Pasadena who said that some location scouting was being done there by Rob Zombie and crew. Said anonymous reader, who did some checking with local location scouts, found out that despite Zombie’s claims of wanting a true Midwestern town for his Halloween redux, the film will once again be shot in South Pasadena, likely using some of the same locations Carpenter used back in the day. The odd thing is that the IMDB, never a bastion of factual information, has the shooting location listed as Little Hollywood, aka Vancouver. So we continue to dig and will let you know more when we find it!

But the coolest news of all, which unfortunately also got its start on the IMDB, is that it looks like young Michael Myers has been cast. Child actor Daeg Faerch is listed as “attached” on the IMDB page for Halloween, and sure enough if you check out the info for him on Now Casting, he’s listed there as well as being involved in Halloween Project for Rob Zombie. Coincidence? Probably not, but we’re checking it out to be sure!

Giallo Makes A Comeback With Crystal Eyes

Published

on

The giallo genre has somewhat fallen off the radar in recent years, but that’s all about to change with the new Argentinian film Crystal Eyes (original title: Mirada de Cristal). Set in 1985, the film’s about a series of murders taking place in the glamorous and colorful fashion world, so it sounds like a true giallo throwback.

Crystal Eyes was directed by Ezequiel Endelman and Leandro Montejano, and stars Silvia Montanari, Anahí Politi, Erika Boveri, and Claudio Armesto. It screened at both the Mar del Plata International Film Festival and the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival, and received a great audience reception at both. We were sent the trailer for the film along with the poster and a bunch of lobby cards, which we proudly present below.

Investigate The Paranormal In The X-Files: Deep State Mobile Game

Published

on

“The X-Files” franchise will turn 25 next year, and what better way to celebrate than with the launch of a new video game? That’s right, the mobile game The X-Files: Deep State will be released in February 2018, and, in the style of the show, will feature a story about aliens and government conspiracies. The events of the game will take place in the year 2010, between seasons nine and ten of the show.

The X-Files: Deep State is being developed by Creative Mobile Games and will be published by FoxNext, and as with the majority of mobile games these days, will be free to play with in-game purchases.

Meanwhile, season 11 of “The X-Files” TV series will premiere on January 3, 2018. Which may be its last hurrah, because I dread to think what Disney will do with the franchise if they ultimately do end up purchasing 20th Century Fox.
