Horror icons always seem to be slashers. Sure, we work a supernatural in there from time to time like a vamp or something like that, but the indie film Jonah Lives hopes the next icon comes in the rotting, undead variety…namely, its zombie Jonah.

Written and directed by Luis Carvalho, Jonah Lives stars Brinke Stevens, Cesar Perreira, Jocelyn Padilla, James Barrett, Ryan Boudreau, Nicole LaSala, Rob Roy and Aaron Peaslee. It’s a little bit zombie romp and a little bit Pumpkinhead-ish summoned beast revenge flick. Although no official announcement has yet been made, rumor has it that the folks behind the Rock and Shock horror convention were so impressed with what they’ve seen from Jonah Lives that they’ve already invited the filmmakers to screen the film at their October festival in Massachusetts.

For more on the film check out the official Jonah Lives website and also like Jonah Lives on Facebook .

Big thanks to Dread Central’s best-dressed tipster, Avery G, for the heads up on this one!

Synopsis
A story of revenge from beyond the grave, centering on a group of teenagers who unknowingly supply the catalyst for the murdered Jonah’s return from the grave. A day like any other in a town not unlike that found all across the country, like minded teens hanging out, laughing, enjoying each other’s company. When the darkness takes over the day and boredom sets in, they retreat to their basement hangout.

Francis, the self-imposed leader of the group, a wannabe mystic, decides to play with their heads and breaks out a Spirit Board. Eagerly the game is played, and soon they make contact with the tormented spirit of Jonah. They begin to ask questions and soon learn how, when, and why Jonah was murdered in his lifetime. They mock Tony, who warns them that it is a dangerous game to play.

They participate together in summoning Jonah, beseeching him to come to them through the spirit board. What starts as a joke soon turns into a nightmare of garish proportions, when Jonah does indeed join the young teens with an agenda of death on his deceased mind. In a tale as old as time, the question remains the same…Who will survive?

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.
