Takashi Shimizu To Board Flight 75 For CBS FilmsTakashi Shimizu has, hopefully, put the world of Ju-On behind him for good. His upcoming supernatural film sounds like a departure from the world of lingering curses and black-haired ghosts. Or does it?

Deadline is reporting that Shimizu (The Grudge) will helm Flight 75 for CBS Films, in which the passengers on a transpacific airliner encounter what appears to be a supernatural force. Not much else is known about the story yet, but the film is shaping up to have an impressive pedigree behind the scenes. Taka Ichise (The Grudge) will produce with The Ring‘s Roy Lee and Insidious‘ Steven Schneider. That’s a solid collection of guys who’ve had great success in the world of supernatural horror.

But if there’s a meowing Asian child anywhere to be found, I’m going to hit someone. Keep your eyes here, guys; we’ll bring you all the news regarding Shimizu’s return to US horror as we get our grubby little hands on it. I’m looking to see this talented filmmaker redeem himself for the outright debacle that was The Grudge 2. Everyone deserves a second chance, even though I’m still reeling from seeing that disaster in theaters.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
