Dark Harvesters Rejoice!

Dark Harvest 3! Finally!You wanted it! You demanded it! You got it! Dark Harvest 3: Scarecrow, baby! Oh, yeah!

Lionsgate knows that all you Dark Harvest fans out there have been demanding more cornfield-themed terror from your favorite non-Children of the Corn/Scarecrow cornfield-themed DTV franchise. Ask and they shall deliver!

“In the backwoods of Tennessee, an age-old curse resurfaces and takes revenge on a group of young kids on a weekend getaway at the family cabin. In 1921, the wicked James brothers plotted the murder of an old witch who lived up in the hollows in order to steal her land. As the hour came, she realized what was going to happen and on her terrifying deathbed, made an effigy of a scarecrow and cursed their family forever. Now, 60 years later, grandson Brett James decides to take a group of friends up to the hollows on a vacation, he has no idea that the deadly curse is still alive – and has been waiting to exact revenge…”

Oooh, I bet that curse involves a killer scarecrow – and probably a cornfield too.

Continuing Lionsgate’s ever popular trend of snatching up indie horror productions with similar concepts as previous Lionsgate DVD releases and then re-titling the film for market as a name-only sequel to their similarly-themed film, the film the world will know as Dark Harvest 3: Scarecrow is actually a no budget slasher flick called Skarecrow that was made two years ago. The film currently boasts a startling 8.7 on IMDB’s User Rating scale despite not featuring any actual user comments from anyone who has actually seen it. That can only mean that this is a shockingly good horror movie that has somehow completely slipped through the cracks and has only been viewed by a tiny handful of people that are still keeping mum on the film’s greatness or members of the cast and crew have IMDB accounts. Hmmm…

We can all find out how good or bad it is when Lionsgate releases this newest sequel you’ve all been waiting for to the DVD franchise you all know and love, Dark Harvest 3: Scarecrow, on November 21st. Mark you calendars, “Dark Harvesters” (official fandom name coined by me just now!) because this year Thanksgiving comes two days early for you!

Exclusive: Get Dirty Behind-The-Scenes in SockMonster

Published

on

We’ve been pretty excited about Wesley Alley’s short film SockMonster, in so small part to it being produced by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw III, Repo! The Genetic Opera) and starring Derek Mears (“Twin Peaks”, Friday the 13th). A short about a woman who grieves the loss of her daughter only to believe that she’s trapped in a laundry dryer, hounded by a monstrous gathering of missing laundry…a “sock monster”, if you will.

While we’ve shown you exclusive images already, we want to give you a different look at the short through a series of behind-the-scenes photographs taken by Abrey Adams Watterson. While the short is a one-location deal, it’s fascinating to see just how much work and equipment went into making the final product.

While we can’t show you the titular monsters (director’s request, sorry), we do think that this is an interesting look into the process of filmmaking. So, for all you aspiring directors, here’s a chance to go behind the scenes of a shoot!

When Will Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes Season 2 Premiere?

Published

on

Three months back we let you guys know that the second season of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes TV series had cast Tessa Ferrer (Insidious: The Last Key) to star as a series regular opposite Jack Huston, with production set to begin in Charleston, SC the following month.

Well, shooting on season two must have gone well because today Deadline confirms that the ten-episode second season will begin airing on the AT&T Audience Network August 22.

I didn’t watch the first season myself because I was hoping to read the book first… but that didn’t happen. Anyhow, I plan to catch up before season 2 begins airing this August.

What did you think of Season 1 of Mr. Mercedes? 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 second season will also be based on King’s “Bill Hodges Trilogy” (Mr. Mercedes, Finders Keepers, and End of Watch) and hits AT&T Audience Network August 22.

Season 1 Synopsis:

Demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Treadaway) taunts retired police detective Bill Hodges (Gleeson) with a series of lurid letters and emails, forcing the ex-cop to undertake a private, and potentially felonious, crusade to bring the killer to justice before he is able to strike again.

Blumhouse Reveals Halloween Poster With Michael in Full Glory!

Published

on

The poster for Blumhouse’s Halloween has been revealed and it’s almost brilliant in its simplicity. Featuring Michael’s iconic mask in the upper left, it practically looms over the blackness of the bottom right, Michael’s almost entirely black stare looking at the Halloween font. His mask is cracked and weathered, almost as though it aged and wrinkled with him, dirt and grime collecting around the eyes and nostrils. In short, it’s absolutely fantastic.

Speaking recently with Halloween Daily News, Nick Castle, who plays Michael Myers, explained, “Yes, and it’s very neighborhood-centric, you know, like the first one. It feels a lot like (the first film). There are a lot of things coinciding (in the new film) that feel like clever ways to introduce a kind of déjà vu of the first one, without feeling like it’s being copied. The script had some very clever people working on it. They were very clear on wanting to find the tone that was in the first one. It was the first thing out of their mouths really: ‘We want to do it like John did it.’

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer, the latter two who play Curtis’ granddaughter and daughter, respectively. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Venture back into Haddonfield when Halloween goes trick or treating on October 19.
