Edward Furlong and Tracey Gold Try to Survive an Arachnoquake

New Orleans survived the worst hurricane of a generation, but can it survive an Arachnoquake? Not just an earthquake… an earthquake that unleashes giant albino spiders from deep within the bowels of the earth. Can Carol Seaver, John Connor, and Alfalfa save the Big Easy from an earth-rattling, eight-legged apocalypse?

Syfy sent out a press release Tuesday regarding the just-wrapped production Arachonoquake starring Tracey Gold, formerly of “Growing Pains”, currently on “Starving Secrets with Tracey Gold”, and soon to be seen on the new season of “Celebrity Wife Swap”, and Edward Furlong of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Pet Sematary 2 fame.

Ethan Philips (Neelix on “Star Trek: Voyager”) and Bug Hall round out the cast. The press release bills actor Bug Hall as one of the stars of The Little Rascals. If you’re like me, your first reaction to that would be, “Aren’t they all dead?” I was curious as to how old this guy had to be so I looked him up on IMDB and found out he played “Alfalfa” in the 1994 big screen version of The Little Rascals. Again, if you’re like me, you probably have no recollection of that movie even existing.

Actor-director Griff Furst continues his cinematic quest to kill every last person in the state of Louisiana by way of mutant living monstrosity as he follows up his highly-rated Cajun country Syfy flick Swamp Shark by directing this New Orleans-based creature feature disaster flick for Active Entertainment.

Synopsis:
In Arachnoquake massive earthquakes unleash giant albino spiders. Freed from their ancient subterranean prison, the spiders go on a murderous rampage through New Orleans.

As a fellow Southerner quite familiar with the city of New Orleans, I honestly have to question just how big a threat this would pose in real life. They’d be tossing those albinos spiders into pots of boiling water sprinkled with paprika and cayenne pepper and serving them up on po’boy bread within hours. Crabs, crawfish, albino spiders from the center of the earth – it’s all the same to them. Pinch the tail and suck the head. That’s how they roll.

Be on the lookout for Arachnoquake on Syfy sometime in 2012.

Paramount’s Dating App Thriller Snags The Boy Next Door Screenwriter

Published

on

Are dating apps scary? Paramount sure hopes that’s the case as they have just hired screenwriter Barbara Curry (Blumhouse’s The Boy Next Door) to pen the upcoming “dramatic investigative thriller” Gasp.

Hiring Curry for this film makes a ton of sense being that before Curry was the screenwriter behind “dramatic investigative thrillers” she worked as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office for ten years. Qualifications galore.

Deadline reports that Gasp is centered around a female detective investigating a killer who is targeting women via a dating app. Nice. Not only is that a super-timely and creepy plot for a flick, but the film is supposedly based on several true stories.

Heaven help us. I knew it. Stay away from those. Male or female. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Now while I’ve never had a bad experience (re: stalker) from a dating app that makes sense considering I never use them. Ever. I prefer the old-school method of sitting in my room alone typing horror news articles and letting the ladies come to me.

12% of the time, it works every time.

The film is based on a pitch by Mario Celaya and produced by Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman. Jessica Sharzer (“American Horror Story”) is co-producing.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!

Synopsis:

A female detective goes undercover online to catch a killer who is murdering women he meets on a specific popular app. But when she starts to fall for one of the suspects who has been cleared, she discovers he may, in fact, be the killer.

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3

Published

on

“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.

Synopsis:

A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

Published

on

One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.
