Dark Skies Not Exactly Hovering Above the Oscar Weekend Box OfficeFact: By the year 2015 all theatrically released horror movies will be billed as being “From the Producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious.” With that being slapped on movies like Dark Skies, it’s hard not to believe its enticement value is rapidly being diminished.

The latest genre film from Scott Stewart, the maker of Legion and Priest (Does he own a “Get out of Director’s Jail Free” card or what?) opened in 6th place with $8.8 million for the weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. The Dimension/Weinstein PG-13 extraterrestrial fright flick could only muster a C+ Cinemascore, ensuring it has a better future in a Redbox than on the big screen.

The box office continues to be anything but beautiful for last week’s flop Beautiful Creatures, down to 10th place with $3.4 million. That puts the witchy tweener romantic thriller two slots below Warm Bodies, which took in $4.7 million in its 4th week. Hollywood’s search for the next Twilight will have to look elsewhere.

Next weekend Jack kills giants in Bryan Singer’s mega-budget fairy tale and The Last Exorcism Part II answers the question as to whether The Last Exorcism was really a movie that needed to be franchised.

Published

on

There are few films more beloved around DC HQ than Tibor Takacs’ 1987 monster-filled classic The Gate. It’s top to bottom fun featuring stop-motion beasties and a cute-as-a-button young Stephen Dorff, and that’s only a couple of reasons why the flick just rules.

Scream Factory (bless their hearts) just announced that its sequel, Gate II, will finally be getting a Blu-ray release; and we have your details and artwork right here.

Look for the flick starring original The Gate star Louis Tripp on February 27, 2018.

Synopsis:
This supercharged sequel to the horror classic The Gate comes alive with unearthly creatures, heart-stopping action, and incredible special effects. Gate II picks up again with Terry, the teenage sorcerer who summons beings from the other side whose powers can be used to grant any wish. Unfortunately, before the Gate closes again, a “minion” – a tiny disciple of Satan himself – manages to slip through to our dimension. When the creature is kidnapped – all hell breaks loose.

Special Features:

  • NEW 2K scan of the interpositive
  • NEW Return to the Nightmare – A Look Back at GATE II – featuring interviews with director Tibor Takacs, screenwriter Michael Nankin, and special visual effects creator Randall William Cook

Game? Than you’ll be happy to know that Fear the Walking Dead: The Complete Third Season comes to Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD on March 13!
