Jane Austen’s Emma Meets Her Match: Werewolves

Published

on

Emma and the WerewolvesJane Austen’s much beloved matchmaking character Emma Woodhouse has been portrayed by a wide variety of actresses including Alicia Silverstone, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kate Beckinsale, the latter of whom would probably fare best in the story’s latest incarnation: Emma and the Werewolves.

The novel comes out December 8th (it’s available now for the Kindle) from Coscom Entertainment, a small press publisher that focuses on superhero books, comics, and monster-themed fiction. The plot for Emma and the Werewolves is described as follows:

As the ever headstrong Ms. Emma Woodhouse schemes and plots as matchmaker, a dark and deadly terror descends upon Highbury. A series of bestial murders fills the residents with fear as the ever mysterious Mr. Knightley leads a secret life, unknown to all, combating evils not of this Earth.

Carnage and destruction reign throughout the land, and though the residents of Highbury try to attend to day-to-day matters as civilly as possible, each cannot help but wonder what lurks in the shadows and if it’ll be coming for them next.

Coscom has taken the whole literary classic/horror mash-up craze to a new level with not just one or two, but SIX, more such books either currently in release or coming soon. They are:

Available now:

  • The Undead World of Oz by L. Frank Baum and Ryan C. Thomas
  • Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Zombie Jim by Mark Twain and W. Bill Czolgosz
  • The War of the Worlds Plus Blood, Guts and Zombies by H.G. Wells and Eric S. Brown
  • Forthcoming:

  • Alice in Zombieland by Lewis Carroll and Nickolas Cook
  • Dracula vs. Zombulaby Bram Stoker and A.P. Fuchs
  • Persuasion … in Space! by Jane Austen and W. Bill Czolgosz
  • It might be a case of over-saturation … or just giving the people what they want. In either event, it appears to be a trend that’s definitely not going away anytime soon.

    Jamie Lee Curtis Says Blumhouse Halloween Will Make Us “Very Happy and VERY Scared”

    Published

    on

    Bring. It. On.

    It was only last week that we let you guys know that Jamie Lee Curtis had wrapped filming on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

    And today we have another Instagram post from the legendary scream queen where she not only shows us a creepy-ass painting of Michael Myers, but she lets us know that Blumhouse’s Halloween is going to make us all “very happy, and VERY scared.”

    Hoo-ray!

    I don’t know about you, but I’m going to just go ahead and trust Jamie Lee Curtis on this one. She’s been around the Halloween block more than a few times and I trust her judgment… other than Halloween: Resurrection.

    You can check out her post below and then let us know how excited you are for Laurie Strode’s return!

    Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer of the film as well as the composer.

    The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

    Synopsis:

    Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

    Death House Theatrical Release Delayed One Week Due to Black Panther Success

    Death House

    If you were excited to see Death House this week, you’re going to have to pump your brakes as the film’s theatrical release has been postponed one week due to the success of Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther.

    Eric Pakrinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, who is distributing Death House in theaters, states, “Obviously, we are very disappointed to find such pressure from the exhibitors to hold-over multiple screens for ‘Black Panther’ but we are happy for the success that this film is providing to theatre owners, and we know that the slight delay we are implementing for ‘Death House’ will ultimately pay big dividends for the film.”

    The plan is to now launch Death House on Friday, March 2nd, with a special media event and public opening at the Regency Plant 16 in Van Nuys, California, where 20 cast members, along with additional crew, will be present. From there, the film will spread to other markets on March 9th and March 16th. If performances are strong, additional markets will be added following those dates.

    This shift in release also pushes back the home video and digital release dates to July, although no official date has been locked.

    Director Harrison Smith recorded a video asking the horror community to turn out in droves when the film hits their market. You can see it below.
