The Vampire DiariesAlthough many of us have yet to see the first The Theatre Bizarre anthology film, word broke today of a sequel already in the works. CEO John Flock announced today that Los Angeles- and Vancouver-based film distribution, financing and international sales company W2 Media will co-finance and distribute The Theatre Bizarre 2.

Here are more details from the press release:

The Theatre Bizarre 2 is the sequel to Severin Films and Mataluna Productions’ gripping horror anthology The Theatre Bizarre, executive produced by Daryl J. Tucker. W2 Media is releasing The Theatre Bizarre theatrically in the U.S. on January 27th, 2012 and plans to release the sequel in January 2013. W2 Media is also handling worldwide sales for both films.

Severin Films and France’s Metaluna Productions co-produced the original The Theatre Bizarre (positive Fantasia review here), a modern horror anthology inspired by the over-the-top shocks of Paris’ early 20th century ‘Theatre du Grand Guignol,’ featuring films by directors Douglas Buck, Buddy Giovinazzo, David Gregory, Karim Hussain, Jeremy Kasten, Tom Savini, and Richard Stanley. The film’s original producing team will also produce the sequel.

Generating major buzz throughout the horror festival circuit and even causing audience members to pass out during screenings, The Theatre Bizarre (somewhat different Film4 FrightFest review here) is comprised of seven separate and disturbing chapters from seven cutting-edge genre directors enlisted from around the world and granted total creative freedom.

No word yet on who the directors will be for TTB2 nor how many segments it will include, but look for more soon! In the meantime here’s another look at the new artwork revealed at this year’s AFM for The Theatre Bizarre.

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

Published

on

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.

Synopsis:
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

Published

on

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.
