Chilean Horror Film Yokai Comes to the ShorelineYa know what kinds of stories I love to read? The ones where American distribution companies pick up foreign films and intend on releasing them, rather than remaking them. This is one of those stories. Read on for the skinny!

As per Variety, U.S. sales company Shoreline Entertainment has nabbed the worldwide rights to Chilean horror flick Yokai from first-time director Cristobal Echevensko. This marks the very first Latin American film that the company has ever scooped up.

As the buzz is building on Latin American genre films, I thought it was important that our first move into that sector was a game changing film,” said executive VP Sam Eigen.

Penned by Echevensko and described as a story of suspense with supernatural elements of terror, Yokai centers on Lydia, a 28-year-old employee of a jewelry store who tries to steal a valuable diamond from a man named Yokai. Yokai is a serial killer in his spare time, living at home with all the ghosts of his victims.

Will Director Andrew Stanton Return for STRANGER THINGS 3?



Monday we brought you the killer news that the third season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things had begun filming and today we have more updates!

First off, the new season will run 8-episodes with producer Shawn Levy telling Collider Stranger Things 3 will be back down to the original season’s 8-episode run, following season two’s 10-episodes.

Levy also let us know if Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo, Wall-E) will be back in the director’s chair this season…and it doesn’t look like it… Weak.

No, you know what,” Levy said. “We had some schedule issues trying to figure out how to bring Andrew back, because we were beyond thrilled with him as a human being and his episodes. So the only answer I can give you today is it’s not Stanton, though we very much hope to keep him in the director club of Stranger Things as we move on to other seasons.”

Stanton is one of my favorite directors so this news kinda bums me out. What do you think? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Strangers Things seasons 1 & 2 are currently streaming on Netflix.

Death Line:
When a prominent politician and a beautiful young woman vanish inside a London subway station, Scotland Yard’s Inspector Calhoun (Donald Pleasence of Halloween) investigates and makes a horrifying discovery. Not only did a group of 19th century tunnel workers survive a cave-in, but they lived for years in a secret underground enclave by consuming the flesh of their own dead. Now the lone descendant of this grisly tribe has surfaced, prowling the streets for fresh victims… and a new mate.

In this shattering variation on The Monkey’s Paw, grief-stricken suburban parents (Academy Award nominees John Marley of The Godfather and Lynn Carlin of Faces) refuse to accept the news that their son, Andy (Richard Backus), has been killed in Vietnam. But when Andy returns home soon after, something may be horribly wrong: Andy is alive and well… or is he? Produced and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas) and written by Alan Ormsby (Deranged), Deathdream was one of the very first films to confront the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War. More than forty years later, it remains one of the most chilling horror films of all time.

However, this causes them to doubt their own memory, perceptions – and even their own sanity in this thriller in the vein of Disturbing Behavior and The Faculty.
