Exclusive: Tom Holland to Direct the Reynolds Brothers’ Feature Screamers



Post Thumb:


While on the red carpet last night for the world premiere of the horror-comedy anthology Chillerama at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, we caught up with the Reynolds brothers, who had some very interesting news regarding genre filmmaker Tom Holland’s near-future feature project. Read on!

Brian Reynolds, who previously produced Chaos! Comics creator turned filmmaker Brian Pulido’s 2009 flick The Graves (which stars Clare Grant and Bill Moseley) along with his brother Dean and who is currently in pre-production on the edgy drama Sprawl, leaked the following, “Here’s something news-breaking. Tom Holland is going to direct our next feature. It’s called Screamers, and Dean and I wrote it. Tom Malloy is producing it with us, and we are very excited about that!”

Nudging him for details, Brian stated of the narrative, “Screamers is about a very successful web company that decides to up the game in order to raise a little bit more money. They are kind of YouTubers, and they go to a place where it’s kind of just a joke to go shoot some new footage, but then what they come back with is very serious and very scary and should get people thinking a lot. You know those ‘screamer’ videos online? The ones you see where it says, ‘Look very closely at the screen for the next five seconds,’ and then (he screamed) ‘Ahhhhh!’ It’s based on that type of theory.” [See a well-known example of a screamer video below the photo of the Reynolds brothers at the end of this story.]

We questioned Reynolds on whether Screamers would be shot in a traditional approach or follow the currently trending genre of horror cinema verite, to which he replied with a laugh, “Well, that’s the big question. It’s not going to be a ‘found footage’ film, though.”

Look for more on this one soon!

PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating



Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

The film hits March 9, 2018.

A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations



The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
