Scream Factory Explores The Legend of Hell House on Blu-rayIt seems like not a day goes by where we don’t have a new tidbit of Scream Factory news to share with you fine readers, and we’re certainly not complaining about that, because we damn sure love us some Scream Factory.

Up next, the company sets their sights on the 1973 haunted house classic The Legend of Hell House, birthing it onto Blu-ray for the very first time. Read on!

From the Press Release
For the sake of your sanity, pray it isn’t true! Scream Factory brings you The Legend of Hell House on Blu-ray on August 26, 2014. Special features include a new interview with Director John Hough, a new audio commentary with actress Pamela Franklin, and the theatrical trailer.

It sits here, shrouded in mist and mystery, a nesting place for living evil and terror from the dead. It’s Hell House. Roddy McDowall heads the cast of this exciting chiller about four psychic investigators and the dark, brooding mansion they call “the Mt. Everest of haunted houses.” It’s already destroyed one team of researchers. Now this brave quartet ventures in for another try at unraveling its secrets. But before they succeed, they must suffer through madness, murder and everything else that the spirits who dwell here have in store for them. Yet learning the truth just might drive them all insane.

An ingeniously devised ghost story, The Legend Of Hell House will thrill and delight veteran horror fans from the first creaking door to the very last slithering shadow.

Special Features:

  • New Interview With Director John Hough
  • New Audio Commentary With Actress Pamela Franklin
  • Theatrical Trailer

    Jack Huston and Tessa Ferrer Join Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes Season 2



    Three months back we let you guys know that Stephen King’s “Mr. Mercedes” TV series had been renewed for a second season. And today we have some casting news.

    Insidious: The Last Key star Tessa Ferrer is set as a series regular opposite Jack Huston, with production set to begin in Charleston, SC next month.

    We have further info on Tessa’s character via Deadline: “Ferrer will play Cora Babineau, wife of Dr. Felix Babineau (Huston) and head of marketing at a major pharmaceutical corporation, who’s even more ambitious than she is beautiful. If her husband has a genius for manipulating people from the inside out as he reaches into their brains and rewires them, Cora has a genius for influencing people from the outside in. Her beauty, brains, and force of will, judiciously softened with poise and extreme charm, make her a formidable saleswoman of whatever she’s peddling.”

    What did you think of Season 1 of “Mr. Mercedes”? Let us know below!

    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 this summer.

    Season 1 Synopsis:
    Demented killer Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) taunts retired police detective Bill Hodges (Brendan 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.

    Razzies 2018: Transformers: The Last Knight Edges Out The Mummy in Nominations!



    The Razzie Award

    The film industry as a whole has always treated the horror genre like some misshapen creature that they keep tucked away in a closet a la The Brain That Wouldn’t Die. It doesn’t matter how much horror films make at the box office or how many countless moviegoing seasons we’ve saved for Hollywood… hell, the powers-that-be rarely even acknowledge the fact that some horror movies are even horror movies. They’re “psychological thrillers” or some silly jargon like that. Whatever, right?

    At least once a year, though, the film industry takes a moment to make fun of itself as a whole. Lord knows they don’t mind including us on these auspicious occasions! In any event… this year’s Golden Raspberry Awards (aka The Razzies) nominees have been announced, and we have them for you below. Both Transformers: The Last Knight and Universal’s Dark Universe reboot of The Mummy are leading the wack-pack in terms of nods.

    Jessica Rothe Compares Happy Death Day 2 to Back to the Future



    One of the best surprises of last year was Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day starring Jessica Rothe as a girl stuck in a Groundhog Day-style time loop where she keeps getting murdered by a masked slasher.

    The PG-13 teen horror flick was a blast and I’m looking forward to any news on the possible sequel Happy Death Day 2. Speaking of which, last week Rothe spoke to Collider about the film’s planned sequel and had some very interesting tidbits to drop.

    “[Director Chris Landon] has done this incredible thing where the sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie – and I wouldn’t even say it’s just a horror movie because it’s a horror, comedy, rom-com drama – into a Back to the Future type of genre film where the sequel joins us right from where we left off, it explains a lot of things in the first one that didn’t get explained, and it elevates everything,” Rothe said. “I was really pleased to know that we weren’t just gonna be pushing all the buttons that people loved the first time, over and over again, ‘cause I think that gets old. I’m really excited to see if it comes to fruition and, if it does, what the final product looks like. I hope we get to do it! I had a ball!”

    A Back to the Future-style slasher movie?? I’m in. I’m there. Where do I sign up? What did you think of Blumhouse’s Happy Death Day and are you excited about a possible sequel? Let us know below!

    The original film was directed by Christopher Landon from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Lobdell. The film stars Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Charles Aitken, and Rachel Matthews.



    A college student who relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
