Hatchet 2 is a Go! Adam Green Returns!



Hatchet 2 is a Go! Adam Green Returns! (click for larger image)The news plenty of horror fans have been looking forward to finally broke this morning … Adam Green will be returning to the ground that put him on the map to write and direct Hatchet 2. Of course, we dug a little deeper and got you guys some more info beyond the surface stuff.

“It was never a matter of money, just timing,” Green tells us. “We wanted to make sure that everyone involved with the first film could come back before any of us committed. By the time the first one came out, we were all just exhausted. It took two years. Being that the film was successful, everybody wanted us to do a sequel immediately, but again — we were all Hatcheted out! We didn’t want to make a Hatchet movie just to make a Hatchet movie. Now that all parties concerned have had a chance to rest, and I’ve gotten to spread my wings creatively a bit what with Spiral, Frozen, etc., we can all return to make the movie that fans want to see. We fielded a lot of offers to do this film from a lot of places. There was a great deal of talk about trying to reach a broader audience with the sequel. No one ever said PG-13, but it was in the back of our heads. Anchor Bay came to us and said — ‘Make the movie that you want to make.’ That’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

So what can we expect? “There were things about the first film — questions that were never answered. Hatchet 2 will start the second the first film ends. Sort of like Halloween II did with Carpenter’s Halloween. Part 2 will not be a typical sequel, meaning we’re not just taking another group of kids and sticking them in the woods to be killed. We’re going to learn about Victor Crowley, find out what happened to him, what makes him tick, and what made him the way that he is. Being that it’s a Hatchet movie, there’s going to be humor in it, but we’re going to focus more on scares this time around. And you can expect a major gore-fest. This one is going to make the first film look like it was PG-13. We are going to go as far as we can possibly go with Hatchet 2. We were talking to Kane about the kills, and even he was excited. That’s saying something! He’s done it all! If you liked the first film, you’re gonna LOVE the second. Also, we’re going to have a couple of more horror icons in the movie, but not as just cameos this time. You can expect some big surprise casting news very soon!”

So there you have it, people. Full steam ahead. The fun doesn’t stop there though. Frozen will be upon us soon, but Adam warns us … it’s nothing like Hatchet. “Every time people mention my name along with producer Peter Block’s, it’s always followed by Hatchet and Saw,” Green continues. “Frozen, while definitely terrifying, is also very realistic and dramatic. On Hatchet my influences were movies like An American Werewolf in London, Fright Night, and of course all of the Eighties slasher films. On Frozen it’s more like Rope and Lifeboat. You’re not going to be seeing heads getting cut off and flying through the air. The best compliment we’ve gotten on Frozen is how many people have cried while watching it.”

We can’t wait. Look for more soon!

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You



Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

Netflix Renews The Punisher Solo Series for Season Two!



I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!

“The Punisher” is executive produced by showrunner Steve Lightfoot, Jim Chory, and Jeph Loeb. The series is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.

The cast features Jon Bernthal, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Deborah Ann Woll, Ben Barnes, Amber Rose Revah, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Jason R Moore, and Paul Schulze.

After exacting revenge on those responsible for the death of his wife and children, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal) uncovers a conspiracy that runs far deeper than New York’s criminal underworld. Now known throughout the city as The Punisher, he must discover the truth about injustices that affect more than his family alone.
