Stephen King’s IT Star Jeremy Ray Taylor and More Join Goosebumps 2

Published

on

GoosebumpsI was a big fan of the Jack Black Goosebumps movie that came out a few years back. Makes sense. I was a big fan of the R.L. Stine book series as a kid.

It’s with this in mind I’m excited about the upcoming Goosebump 2 and today we have an update on the film via Variety.

Turns out the kid cast of the sequel has been gathered together, and leading the pack will be chubby Ben from Stephen King’s IT aka Jeremy Ray Taylor.

On top of Taylor, the other child in the cast include Madison Iseman (Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle), Ben O’Brien (Manchester by the Sea), and Caleel Harris (“Castle Rock”).

While we don’t know any details regarding the sequel’s plot, Variety suspects it will “focus on iconic characters and storylines featured in the Goosebumps series.”

Ari Sandel is developing the project with Neal H. Moritz and Deborah Forte producing.

We’ll let you know when we hear more. What did you think of the original film and how excited are you for Goosebumps 2? Let us know below!

Attack of the Mushroom People Attacks Amazon Prime

Published

on

We don’t typically get excited about press releases wanting to the world to know a 55-year-old monster movie has just been made available for free to Amazon Prime subscribers, but when that movie is Attack of the Mushroom People

Not familiar with this trippy 1963 creature feature from longtime Godzilla director Ishiro Honda? If you thought Godzilla vs. The Smog Monster was the pinnacle of bizarro Toho filmmaking, then you’ve never seen Matango, aka Attack of the Mushroom People.

Synopsis:
After a yacht is damaged in a storm, its boarders stranded on a deserted island take refuge in a mysterious fungus-covered boat. With nothing else to eat, some members of the shipwrecked party begin to ingest mysterious mushrooms, transforming them into hideous monsters.

By “hideous monsters” they quite literally mean “mushroom people” that look like something Sid & Marty Krofft would have come up in the 1970’s had they ever attempted a Lovecraft-themed kid’s show.

H.P. Pufnstuf?

SGL Entertainment is pleased to announce they have just released this fungal fright flick on Amazon Prime in the United States and United Kingdom.

Well, you gonna drop some shrooms or not?
