The Bigger Picture Films Announces Teen Horror #Hashtag and Big-Budget Sci-Fi Trilogy Planet XBritish filmmaker Tim Burke’s The Bigger Picture Films has several projects in the works, including social media teen horror film #Hastag and sci-fi trilogy Planet X. Read on for the details of both.

From the Press Release:
The Bigger Picture Films is announcing this week a slate of high-concept, big-budget projects partly funded by new movie investment company TheMovieFund.com.

MTV producer/director Tim Burke has penned and will executive produce the Planet X trilogy, a sci-fi fantasy adventure set on an alien planet and planet Earth in the past, present, and future. The Bigger Picture Films production company has partnered with blockbuster producer Michael Levy (Lara Croft, Demolition Man, Predator, The Last Boy Scout, Die Hard 2) to bring Planet X to the big screen.

Screenwriter and executive producer Burke offers of the films, “Featuring all aspects of the UFO phenomenon, counter-culture, conspiracy underworlds, the Illuminati, and questioning our own belief systems, the Planet X trilogy intends to be a highly controversial and explosive series with state-of-the-art CGI in an epic storyline of time travel, different dimensions, and ancient alien bloodlines.”

With the new Star Wars on the way and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar in the works, “Planet X plans to be a major new science fiction franchise,” Burke continues. “We will be committing a large amount of resources, raised by The Movie Fund, to the project with an emphasis on a major new toy franchise to accompany it.”

Burke’s The Bigger Picture Films also aims to produce a diverse slate of high-concept features, including the biopic/musical feature The Famous Player’s Club, modern-day drama The Second Coming, and The Hangover-style comedy Vegas Baby, as well as a low-budget horror slate with the first out of the gate being the social media teen horror #Hashtag.

“#Hashtag will be in the same vein as Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer,’” offers Burke, “but with a new production format and a contemporary twist to the traditional boogeyman storyline.”

Short Film: Tony Morales’ Hada Will Creep You Out

Published

on

Here at Dread Central, we are always on the lookout to peep and share cool new horror shorts from around the web. Case in point, director Tony Morales’ Hada.

The short film was selected for 260 festivals and received 50 awards, and you can now check it out in its entirety below.

I watched it this past weekend and there were more than a few shots contained within that chilled my bones. All about those feet moving up onto the bed. Brr. That’s all I’ll say.

Actually, I’ll say a (tiny) bit more: Someone needs to give Morales a shot at one of the new Conjuring-universe films. I think he’d knock it out of the park.

Watch the flick and you’ll see what I mean.

Again, you can check out the short below and then after giving the film a viewing, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below!

You can become a fan of the short film on Facebook HERE.

Synopsis:

Tonight Hada comes to visit Daniel because his last child tooth has fallen out. What Daniel doesn´t expect is that his worst enemy is the light.

The last time we gave you guys word on the upcoming Halloween horror anthology 10/31 was to bring you the knock-out exclusive official poster, which you can peep to your left (click for a higher-res version).

The new horror anthology in the vein of V/H/S and Creepshow joins an ensemble cast together to spin twisted tales of the macabre. The film is executive produced by P.J. Starks, creator of the critically acclaimed Volumes of Blood.

The film’s stories are directed by the likes of Justin M. Seaman (The Barn), Zane Hershberger (Devilution), John William Holt (The Dooms Chapel Horror), Brett DeJager (Bonejangles) and Rocky Gray making his directing debut.

This past weekend we were able to catch up with producer-director Rocky Gray and ask him a few choice questions about the anticipated upcoming anthology film.

You can check out our quick interview below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are to check out 10/31 in the comments below!

Dread Central: How is the film coming along?

Rocky Gray: The film is now completed and we are getting the perks out to our Indiegogo backers. The backers and Death By Festival got to see the first cut of the film in October and they loved it so we’re very excited to get the film out to everyone else very soon.

DC: What can expect from this anthology?

RG: Expect to have a lot of Halloween themed fun. Each segment has its own flavor so the pacing and the look change throughout the film. With masked killers, vampires, scarecrows, tricksters and old hags there’s something for everyone.

DC: Will there be a sequel?

RG: If there was a demand for it we would make it happen!

Sounds good to us. Thanks for chatting with us, Rocky!

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3

Published

on

I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”

Whatever.

We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:
It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.
