There’s even more creature-laden goodness coming out of AFM, and as always we’re here to make sure you don’t miss a single monstrous moment of it. We’re good like that. Get ready for a look at what horrors wait Under Ground.

The flick was directed by Rafael Eisenman and stars Ross Thomas, Christine Evangelista, Sofia Pernas, and Adrian R’Mante.

More on this one soon!

Synopsis
Where there is no light…evil grows.

At an abandoned military base a rave party cranks. Matt Wilcox and his buddy Storm have just returned from Iraq. Matt’s old friends are having a mini-reunion to welcome home the war veterans. The drinks are flowing, the music is cranking, Matt and his girlfriend Myra are having a great time. Storm gets caught in the middle of a fight with local gang members. Guns are pulled. Matt yanks Myra, Storm, and all their friends into a doorway to escape the danger. Matt and friends have just entered a locked underground facility. Not all of them will return.

Matt and his friends wait until the rave party has ended. They try to exit their hiding place. The door is locked. Storm discovers they are in a standard military bunker. Matt has seen the schematics. He knows there is an exit on the other side of the facility. He leads the reluctant group down into the bowels of the bunker.

As the darkness thickens and tension grows, the kids are getting gruesomely killed one by one. The group has found itself at the mercy of creatures genetically created by the military to be expendable in battle, made to have integral weapons to be better able to disentomb enemy bunkers and destroy the enemies within. These creatures are vicious Troglomorphs (“Trogs”), surviving on animal and human flesh when it comes into their lair. The Trogs were left behind when the base closed, a forgotten black project. In the darkness they are Matt and his friends’ worst nightmares.

Now Matt, Myra, Storm, and their friends are the prey in a game of survival. With little more than a flashlight and pocketknife, Matt and Storm will be expected to save their friends as they battle these Trogs created to destroy their enemies with bloody prejudice. Though Matt and Storm fought in Iraq, they never knew real fear until they went underground.

POLL: Who Should Direct Wan and King’s TOMMYKNOCKERS?

Published

on

It was just last month that we learned James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) is going to be producing a new big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.

While I’m sad that it seems Wan will not be directing the film, I think it’s a great time to bring up the question: Well, then who the hell SHOULD?

You can find my top 3 choices below and then make sure to let us know who you think should direct James Wan’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky: “It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”

Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers will be produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Roy Lee (Stephen King’s IT) and the ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

Synopsis:

A town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.

Guess Who Just Snagged Wan and King’s New TOMMYKNOCKERS

Published

on

Earlier this month we passed along the exciting news that that none other than James Wan plans to bring Stephen King’s novel The Tommyknockers back to the screen.

Wan will be producing (but not at this time, directing) the film along with Roy Lee (IT) and the original ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

And today Deadline reports Universal won the bidding war over the new adaptation, barely beating out fellow heavyweights Sony and Netflix. And thus Universal, home of the classic movie monsters, will be bringing us Wan and King’s first (and hopefully not last) collaboration.

Are you excited by this news? Do you think Universal is the right fit for this new film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The upcoming reboot of Full Moon’s classic Puppet Master just premiered at the Overlook Film Festival and is said to “maintain all of the brutally inventive puppet-kills infused with the comedic tendencies that made the original franchise so popular with fans while expanding upon Toulon’s backstory and developing richer dialogue, characters, and narratives.”

I’m looking forward to the film and if you’re like me then you’ll be excited to hear Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich looks like it will be heading it’s tiny way into theaters this summer via RLJE Films! More specifically the film will be hitting in August of this year.

“We are incredibly excited to be able to bring the first film under the new Fangoria brand to audiences this summer,” RLJE Films’ Chief Acquisitions Officer Mark Ward said in a statement. “With an amazing script from S. Craig Zahler and performances from horror legends Barbara Crampton and Udo Kier, we know Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich will thrill fans of the original films and new audiences alike.

Are you excited to check out Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich in theaters this August? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The reimagining is directed by Sonny Laguna and Tommy Wiklund from a script written by S. Craig Zahler and stars Thomas Lennon, Jenny Pellicer, Nelson Franklin, Charlyne Yi, Michael Pare, Udo Kier, and Barbara Crampton. The film is produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.

RLJE Films plans to release the movie in theaters in August 2018.

Synopsis:

In Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, recently divorced and reeling, Edgar (Lennon) returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When Edgar finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash at a small-town convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. Girl-next-door Ashley (Pellicer) and his comic book shop boss, Markowitz (Franklin), join Edgar for the doomed road trip. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by an evil as old as time.
