Phantasm: Ravager Could Be Headed Our Way This Coming OctoberThe horror community as a whole was shocked to learn a few months back that a fifth installment in the Phantasm franchise was shot behind all of our backs over the course of the past couple years, unexpected news that was followed up with the reveal of a pretty damn awesome teaser trailer.

Naturally, we’ve been waiting for word on a release date, which has potentially arrived. Read on!

Bloody Disgusting reports that a reader tipped them off to the news that the David Hartman-directed Phantasm: Ravager is set for release on Tuesday, October 7th, and that the official announcement of the date is impending. For now, we can only hope that the tipster is correct, as that brings the Tall Man and his angry balls back into our lives in less than five months. Yes please!

In the meantime, check out the teaser trailer below, in case ya missed it!

Ravager features Reggie Bannister (a veteran of all five films) in his decades-long pursuit of the malevolent Tall Man, and it finally forces him to confront the mysteries at the heart of the Phantasm saga. The entire original cast is back including Michael Baldwin, Bill Thornbury, Kat Lester, and Angus Scrimm, along with some great new characters.

Mom & Dad Review – When Parental Protection Goes Horribly Awry

Published

on

Starring Nicolas Cage, Selma Blair, Anne Winters

Written by Brian Taylor

Directed by Brian Taylor


The love of one’s parents is something that can propel an individual to not only personal, but professional heights as well, and that’s not to say that the aforementioned love should be taken for granted, either. The reason why I’m making this statement is that you never know when that love could turn to blind, unrestrained rage, and you as the child could be forced to save your own life from those very people who raised you – enter Brian Taylor’s ultra-black comedy, Mom & Dad.

Josh (Zachary Arthur) and his sister Carly (Winters) are your typical American children: generally oblivious to the life around them provided by their progenitors, and when a mysterious and unexplained virus causes all parents to turn violently towards their kids, it’s the youngins that are the ones being stalked, sometimes with horrific results. What gives this film a tremendous sense of “oomph” is the fact that there really isn’t a whole lot of time spend on useless build-up. Taylor’s style of balls-out direction is no truer on display here as the parental duo of Nicolas Cage and Selma Blair as Brent and Kendall Ryan is one of cinematic gold. Cage, who on the normal is an actor that harnesses his bat-shit nuts style of character portrayal until it’s time to fully unleash the beast – well, consider this performance off of the friggin’ chain! It’s clear from the get-go that the relationship between the folks and the kids isn’t entirely the most drama-free and devoid of subtle hostility.

Some of the scenes of various attacks are a bit tough to take at times, and although the film was created in jest, it’s still the shock factor that carries this one to the finish line with the audience kicking and screaming all the way. One scene inside a newborn delivery room had me shifting in my seat, and for that to happen is pretty damned impressive, and I’ve seen some rather demented shit over the course of my years. The film does get a bit disjointed at times, but order is restored when the mayhem returns in full-force, and Taylor’s action-film resume shows through with psychotic camera-angles and dizzying arrays of brute force from some characters. Blair and Cage didn’t exactly come off doubtless as a couple, and maybe they would have been better set as a separate-working tandem, but the two nevertheless provided some real entertainment once their switches got flipped (well, Cage’s switch never really has an “off” position in this movie). In the end of it all, Mom & Dad is the textbook definition of a “mindless movie,” and that’s not meant to be a negative in any fashion – I absolutely loved it from beginning to end, and this one is meant for a viewing with the kiddies to gently remind them what could happen if they ever get out of line (wink, wink).

Ferocious, frenzied and ultimately fun, these parents certainly aren’t to be f**ked with!

Yes, Deadline just announced that the third entry in the massively successful Jurassic World series is going to be roaring into theaters come June 11, 2012.

Not only that but the film has already snagged a screenwriter in the form of Pacific Rim: Uprising co-writer Emily Carmichael, who will co-write along with Trevorrow.

The third entry’s script will be based off a story by Trevorrow and Derek Connolly, who wrote the first two Jurassic World films together, and Steven Spielberg and Trevorrow will return to executive produce, along with producers Frank Marshall and Pat Crowley.

“It’s important to this franchise that we welcome new creative voices to keep our storytelling fresh and alive,” said Trevorrow in a statement. “I’m thrilled with the tension and beauty J.A. has brought to Fallen Kingdom, and I know Emily will add another layer of emotion to the concluding chapter of our trilogy.”

There have been no casting confirmations just yet, but we will let you know as soon as we hear anything further! Are you excited for Jurassic World 3? Let us know below!

Directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), the epic action-adventure is written by Jurassic World’s director, Trevorrow, and its co-writer, Derek Connolly. The film stars Chriss Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, James Cromwell, Ted Levine, Justice Smith, Geraldine Chaplin, Daniella Pineda, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall, and Isabella Sermon, while BD Wong and Jeff Goldblum reprise their roles.

Look for it in theaters on June 22, 2018.

Synopsis:

It’s been four years since theme park and luxury resort Jurassic World was destroyed by dinosaurs out of containment. Isla Nublar now sits abandoned by humans while the surviving dinosaurs fend for themselves in the jungles. When the island’s dormant volcano begins roaring to life, Owen (Chris Pratt) and Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) mount a campaign to rescue the remaining dinosaurs from this extinction-level event. Owen is driven to find Blue, his lead raptor who’s still missing in the wild, and Claire has grown a respect for these creatures she now makes her mission.

Arriving on the unstable island as lava begins raining down, their expedition uncovers a conspiracy that could return our entire planet to a perilous order not seen since prehistoric times.

With all of the wonder, adventure, and thrills synonymous with one of the most popular and successful series in cinema history, this all-new motion-picture event sees the return of favorite characters and dinosaurs—along with new breeds more awe-inspiring and terrifying than ever before. Welcome to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Jordan Peele’s Next Genre Movie Begins Shooting Later This Year

Published

on

I’m pretty sure that there aren’t many Jordan Peele haters out there.

The man is not only a brilliant comedian – as showcased in multiple seasons of his sketch comedy series “Key & Peele” – but the fact that he has earned Oscar nominations, along with boatloads of cash, for writing and directing his debut horror feature, Get Out, makes Peele damn near untouchable.

It is with this in mind that not only the horror community but the entire world are holding their breath in anticipation of Peele’s next film.

Well, today we have news on just that as Peele recently told THR that his next film will begin shooting later this year.

“I am currently writing it, and I’ll direct for Universal this year,” he said. “I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”

While the writer-director is being tighhtlipped about the details of his new film, he did tell the site that the new movie will tonally resemble Get Out.

“One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favorite,” he said. “That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one.”

Again, I don’t think there are many people out there that aren’t intensely curious about what Peele cooks up next, so we will make sure to keep you guys up-to-date as word pours in. Until then let us know what you think of Jordan Peele below!

Get Out is nominated for multiple Oscars this year, and we will find out just which categories it wins come March 4, 2018.

BUY GET OUT HERE!

Synopsis:
Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
