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.

    Published

    on

    To celebrate the UK DVD release of the Psycho doc 78/52, we have a brand spanking new clip for you cats to go crazy over. Watch it quick; you don’t want to keep Mother waiting!

    The flick, from director Alexandre O. Phillipe, features interviews with Walter Murch, Peter Bogdanovich, Guillermo del Toro, Jamie Lee Curtis, Osgood Perkins, Danny Elfman, Eli Roth, Elijah Wood, Bret Easton Ellis, Marli Renfro – body double for Janet Leigh in Psycho, Karyn Kusama, Neil Marshall, Richard Stanley, and many more.

    An unprecedented look at the iconic shower scene in Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, the ‘Man behind the Curtain’, and the screen murder that profoundly changed the course of world cinema, 78/52 references the number of set-ups (78) and the number of cuts (52) in the shower scene from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. One entire week out of the four weeks scheduled to shoot Psycho — a full quarter of the film’s production schedule — was dedicated to the infamous shower scene.

    Joel David Moore to Write and Direct the Remake of Hit Korean Film Hide and Seek

    Published

    on

    Joel David Moore is an actor we all know from his roles in James Cameron’s Avatar and Adam Green’s original Hatchet film. But did you know he also co-directed Adam Green’s psychological thriller Spiral? Well, he did and now the man is stepping back behind the camera for CJ Entertainment’s upcoming remake of the 2013 Korean Movie Hide and Seek.

    Moore will write an adapted feature English-language screenplay for Hide and Seek in addition to directing the film. The original Korean version was written and directed by Huh Jung.

    “Hide and Seek is a sharp, sophisticated thriller that created a lasting imprint on me,” said Joel David Moore. “I wanted to explore what could happen if we retold this story to an American audience, using the tools from the original story. We found a rich and complex world, relevant to our current race, class and power struggles we’re seeing here in America. I’m excited to partner with CJ Entertainment, perfect partners on this journey.”

    CJ Entertainment is developing, financing and producing the film.

    We’ll let you know when we hear more!

    Synopsis:

    Based on a phenomenon that actually happens, the film centers on a man searching for his long-lost brother stumbles upon a secret world of squatters living in the homes of unsuspecting tenants – a revelation that becomes all the more menacing when his home becomes the next target.

    Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class. As the population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of “what if” when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.
