Monsterpalooza 2016 – Massive Image Gallery! See What You Missed!

Published

on

Monsterpalooza

What can we possibly say about the Monsterpalooza convention that hasn’t already been said? The brainchild of visionary promoter Eliot Brodsky, each year gets bigger, better, and more importantly, MORE MONSTROUS!

This year the most killer horror convention of the year moved to a bigger location in Pasadena, CA, and the extra space was well utilized as every corner of every hallway and showroom was packed to the gills with creature-filled goodness. It’s amazing, man… the second you walk through the door, it’s like you’re 8 years old again. Everywhere you look someone is smiling and enjoying the vibe, including big names like Gary Oldman, and J.J. Abrams! It truly is a celebration of monsters and horror artwork! No ego, no pretenses, just the absolute love of the genre for the fans who adore it.

Scattered amongst the many eye-popping sights this year was a host of celebrities greeting fans with open arms, such as Hellraiser‘s Ashley Laurence and Doug Bradley, Linda Blair, Nick Castle, James Remar, Tom Holland, Bill Moseley, and Haruo Nakajima (the 90+-year-old Japanese suit actor who appeared in the original Godzilla, King Kong Escapes, and War of the Gargantuas), and many, many more! Speaking personally, meeting Nakajima was like coming across royalty. I kissed his head, his hands, and blessed him at least four times as I kept getting in line to do so.

And of course, there were merchants aplenty who were selling just about anything that you could possibly want, including Rotten Cotton, who was selling the new Dread Central T-shirt (big thanks to everyone who bought one; not only do you have really good taste, but we couldn’t be more thankful for your support) along with a host of other new designs including the best damned workshirts I’ve ever seen.

Check out our image gallery below. It truly speaks for itself. For more information visit the official Monsterpalooza website and Monsterpalooza Facebook page.

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

Published

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

Published

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.
