Blood Trails Sets Premiere, New Pics!

Published

on

During our two-week long hiatus (which, trust me, most of us needed anyway, as boring as it was at times), Travis Stevens , who works for the company working to release Blood Trails, dropped us a line with a very cool update on the award-winning debut film: “We’re close to a U.S. deal which is sweet, and we’ve been asked to hold our U.S. premiere at the Fantastic Fest in Austin. I am very excited to finally get a chance to visit Austin and drink from its mighty well!”

Though only in its second year, the Fantastic Fest in Austin is already generating all sorts of buzz as the hot new film festival in the U.S., thanks in no small part to the involvement of both the Alamo Drafthouse and the team behind Ain’t It Cool News. The festival goes down in Austin this year from September 21st through the 28th. Blood Trails will be joining other films such as Adam Mason’s Broken, The Living and the Dead, Frostbite, and a helluva lot more to be announced. Check out the fest’s official site here for more.

Travis also let me in on a new film they’re working on called The Room, which he describes as “sort of like “The Shining” directed by Polanski.” Though he says it’s not the same as either The Shining or anything by Polanski, indeed it sounds much more fucked up, but that should give you a taste of what you’re in for. The poster for it is below, and you can check out the film’s trailer right here!

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!

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.

Puppet Master: Littlest Reich

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.

Netflix’s STRANGER THINGS 3 Begins Filming!

Published

on

Nice! Looks like the third season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things begins filming today.

The news dropped over on Collider with producer Shawn Levy telling the site the team just completed the table read which included the season’s first 4 scripts.

It is the same number of scripts as last year,” Levy says. “The rest of them kind of get written as we shoot, as we edit, as we go. I’m once again directing the third and fourth episodes so that I can give the Duffers a breather, and send them back into the writing cave so that they can buff out the rest of the season.”

He continues: “That’s why I took on these episodes in Season One, and now the three of us are just a little too superstitious to mess with what’s worked so far. The prep beyond that, it’s really a similar juggling act where the Duffers, because they always understandably want to direct the kick-off episodes, they have to juggle their limited time between writing and re-writing and prepping as directors, all at the same time.”

How excited are you to know that filming on Stranger Things 3 is underway? Make sure to let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

We’ll let you know when we hear more!
