The Mummy Gets Resurrected, The Creature Returns, and the Dead Raid as Part of the Still Night Monster Movies



Post Thumb:


Still Night Monster MoviesI’m not saying Halcyon International’s Still Night Monster Movies have been slow to materialize but they’re just now getting around to the second, third, and fourth films in the series and I’m fairly certain I first reported on these way back in 2010.

Dracula Reborn was the film that launched Halcyon International’s attempt to recapture the old school magic of classic monsters movies with their “Still Night Monster Movies” label. Let’s just say it came and went with little fanfare. Not entirely the fault of the film seeing as how Halcyon doesn’t really do much to help promote their films.

I’m about to tell you about three new films they have coming out but I can’t tell you who wrote, directed, or stars in (with one exception) any of them because the company doesn’t bother with such matters on their website.

So the second film in the series is The Mummy Resurrected. It stars Lauren Bronleewe, Beverly Gaddis, Iyad Hajjaj, and Fouad Hajji. I only know that because this is the only one of the three films with an IMDB entry, and even the IMDB entry fails to list the writer or director.

The second film in the Still Night Monster Movie Series, The Mummy: Resurrected revolves around a team of archaeologists who discover an ancient mummy, unleashing a deadly curse from its eternal tomb.

The third installment in the series has taken an interesting twist. The Creature: Returns was originally conceived as a spin on The Creature from the Black Lagoon. Somewhere along the way this creature went from Gill-Man to Godzilla. Given the very low budget nature of these films, I’m curious to see how they pull it off. Even The Asylum (sadly) did not attempt a Godzilla mockbuster this year. Given the slow rate at which this company gets these films out, Godzilla 2 may very well be in theaters by the time we see it.

The third film in the Still Night Monster Series, The Creature: Returns is a gripping tale of mankind’s final stand against an alien creature over 10 times larger than a T-Rex…

Lastly, though not inspired by any particular classic creature like the other films in the series, Dead Raid appears to be the answer to the question as to what you get when you combine The Raid: Redemption (or Dredd, take your pick) with futuristic robots and… zombies? I think there are supposed to be zombies. The title has the word “dead” in it and the tagline and poster clearly promise the undead. I didn’t see any zombies, myself.

Martial law reigns over the city. On a routine check for terrorist activity in a high-rise apartment building, Hawkins, a capable police officer, and Argus, her heavily armored android partner, stumble on a transaction they assume is the illegal narcotic fleck. But then, strange things begin to happen to the building and its residents. First, everything with mechanical parts begins to malfunction. Then, one by one, the residents begin to…malfunction…too. With no ability to call for backup, and their defenses running low, Hawkins and Argus have to fight their way out. But when they’re called into headquarters to report back on their work, they learn a secret the police state can’t allow them to know.

Paramount’s Dating App Thriller Snags The Boy Next Door Screenwriter



Are dating apps scary? Paramount sure hopes that’s the case as they have just hired screenwriter Barbara Curry (Blumhouse’s The Boy Next Door) to pen the upcoming “dramatic investigative thriller” Gasp.

Hiring Curry for this film makes a ton of sense being that before Curry was the screenwriter behind “dramatic investigative thrillers” she worked as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s office for ten years. Qualifications galore.

Deadline reports that Gasp is centered around a female detective investigating a killer who is targeting women via a dating app. Nice. Not only is that a super-timely and creepy plot for a flick, but the film is supposedly based on several true stories.

Heaven help us. I knew it. Stay away from those. Male or female. Nope. Nope. Nope.

Now while I’ve never had a bad experience (re: stalker) from a dating app that makes sense considering I never use them. Ever. I prefer the old-school method of sitting in my room alone typing horror news articles and letting the ladies come to me.

12% of the time, it works every time.

The film is based on a pitch by Mario Celaya and produced by Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman. Jessica Sharzer (“American Horror Story”) is co-producing.

We’ll let you know when we hear more!


A female detective goes undercover online to catch a killer who is murdering women he meets on a specific popular app. But when she starts to fall for one of the suspects who has been cleared, she discovers he may, in fact, be the killer.

Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3



“From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

But what about “True Detective” season 3?

Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.


A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie



One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

“What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

“We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.
