Hill Talks Box, Father

Published

on

Author Joe Hill's first novel, Heart-Shaped Box, is out today!Ah, the day before Valentine’s Day. A day when lovers really begin to determine how they’re going to spend the one day a year that celebrates love in all forms, the day when last-minute gifts to show devotion and commitment are scooped up from flower shops and jewelry stores across the nation.

As I’m sure you’ve realized by now, it’s a day of horror.

So it’s only appropriate that Joe Hill’s debut novel, Heart-Shaped Box (review), should hit shelves today, the first time any of Hill’s work has seen print in the U.S. Wondering just who the hell this guy is, besides one of the best new voices in our genre? As if you couldn’t tell from the picture, he’s the son of some author guy named Stephen King.

Hill’s true identity, something he’s hidden from the public at large for as long as he could in order to assure success on his own terms, is the subject of a rather lengthy, down-to-earth article that appeared over on USA Today’s site (thanks to Lilja’s Library for the heads up!), and since Heart-Shaped Box is out today, I want to make sure you all get out there and get a copy of it. This article should be a good impetus to move you along if for no reason other than out of curiosity to see how similar his writing style is to his father’s (hint: not as much as you’d think). Click here to give it a read!

Heart-Shaped Box is currently in development at Warner Bros. with screenwriter Tom Pabst reworking the story of Jude, an aging rock star who makes a big mistake when he buys a ghost on the Internet, into a filmable screenplay. In all honesty the story’s not nearly as “weird” as it may sound by reading the plot synopsis, but hopefully you’ll find that out for yourself. Click here to get Heart-Shaped Box through Evilshop!

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

Kevin Bacon Lets Us Know the Tremors Reboot Pilot Has Wrapped Filming

Published

on

Two weeks ago we let you guys know that Tremors mainstay Michael Gross, aka Burt Gummer, was, unfortunately, not asked to be a part of the upcoming Syfy reboot series starring Kevin Bacon.

While that news upsets us a bit, being that the series has only filmed its pilot episode, we feel that there is still a big chance we could see Burt return to kick some more Graboids in the tentacle-thingies with elephant guns.

Fingers crossed.

Speaking of the “Tremors Syfy pilot, recently star Kevin Bacon took to Instagram to let us all know that filming has wrapped!

You can check out The Bacon’s post below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for Syfy’s “Tremors” series in the comments below!

In the Tremors follow-up, written by Andrew Miller, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back; and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol, and a delusional hero complex.

“Tremors” the TV series is headed our way courtesy of Jason Blum’s Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Prods.

We’ll let you know when we hear more about the series!

So long to NM. Had an amazing time shooting this pilot. Hope I can keep walking in these boots #Tremors
