Clips Scratched Out by The Monkey's PawIn just a few weeks The Monkey’s Paw will be granting wishes at home via the Scream Factory and right now we have a couple of clips to tide you over until this ghastly appendage gets its chance to have its way with you. Read on!

The Monkey’s Paw Release Details
One wish. A thousand regrets. Scream Factory presents The Monkey’s Paw from Chiller Films on Blu-ray and DVD on June 17 with bonus features including behind-the-scenes footage, a theatrical trailer, and commentary with director Brett Simmons, cinematographer Scott Winig, and actor CJ Thomason.

After Jake Tilton (CJ Thomason, Sutures) acquires a mystical “monkey’s paw” talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, he finds his world turned upside-down after his first two wishes result in his malevolent coworker, Tony Cobb (Stephen Lang, Avatar), being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder – forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.

Also starring Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Nurse 3D), Charles S. Dutton (Legion), Michelle Pierce (“NCIS”), and Daniel Hugh Kelly (Cujo), The Monkey’s Paw is adapted from the renowned short story by W.W. Jacobs and picks up where the story left off.

    Live-Action F.E.A.R. Adaptation Coming To Machinima

    Published

    on

    Screenwriter Greg Russo has signed a deal with Machinima to pen an adaptation of the F.E.A.R. video game franchise, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The article did not specify whether the adaptation would be in the form of a film or a series.

    Russo, who is a lifelong gamer, will work with Machinima on creating and developing the F.E.A.R. adaptation, although we don’t know much else at this point. Machinima are a subsidiary of Warner Bros., and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that the F.E.A.R. franchise has also been owned by WB since 2009. In other words, Warner Bros. were bound to give us a live action adaptation of F.E.A.R. at one point, so we’re not too surprised by this development.

    Russo, who is also writing the scripts for the Mortal Kombat and Resident Evil reboots, was quoted as saying the following:

    “As a lifelong gamer, it’s an absolute honor to partner with Machinima, the preeminent provider of digital content to gamers worldwide. F.E.A.R. holds a special place in my heart. I’m excited to bring my personal passion to this and future projects and can’t wait to see where our partnership goes from here.”

    An acronym for First Encounter Assault Recon, the F.E.A.R. games focus on an elite task force who fight to stop Alma Wade, a young girl with incredible psychic powers, from tearing apart the fabric of reality. Legendary film director John Carpenter served as story consultant on the third game, which we awarded a highly positive review back in the day. We’ll bring you more on Machinima’s adaptation when it becomes availalbe.

    Short Film RETINA Will Strain Your Eyes

    Published

    on

    We’ve been paying a lot of attention to the young filmmaker Alex J. Mann around these parts, because his projects are so unique and innovative that we can never wait to see what he’ll cook up next. Mann has just released his latest short, Retina, on his Space Oddity Films YouTube channel, and you can give it a watch below. It’s just under two minutes long and doesn’t contain any dialogue, but this is still a short which will keep you up at night.

    Retina is described as being about “A young man’s fight to shut off his laptop camera turns deadly.” It was written and directed by Mann, and stars Dan J. Johnson in a singular performance. Retina also contains some gruesome images, and is most definitely not safe for work.

    Netflix’s NARCOS Star Says I LOVE ZOMBIES

    Published

    on

    The star of Netflix hit series Narcos Juan Pablo Raba will topline black comedy-horror film I Love Zombies. Henry Rivero (El Comandante) will co-direct alongside César Oropeza (Puras joyitas), author of both the screenplay and the popular graphic novel.

    On top of that, Variety reports that Goya Award winner Marcelo Pont Vergés (The Secret in Their Eyes), the comic-book illustrator, is also attached as film production designer.

    The film was confirmed at Cannes by MadLove co-founders Natalia Agudelo and Nicolás Herreño with Alief‘s Miguel Govea and Brett Walker, and David Matamoros and Angeles Hernández at Zentropa Spain.

    I Love Zombies not only aims to seek an audience for its main piece, the movie, but to use multiple initiatives of interaction that try to create loyal fans,” said producer Natalia Agudelo, a former director of Bogota Audiovisual Market (BAM).

    The film is set to begin filming next year.

    Synopsis:

    The film narrates a dystopian tale of socio-political intrigue with dark humor and action, where a Central Government’s suicide expedition enters into devastated areas in what used to be a big capital city, now infested with cannibal corpses. Two intertwined stories result from that move, showing a vice-plagued and cruel post-apocalyptic world. The first involves Kid, a young man traumatized by the death of his family at the hands of a horde of walking dead; the other features Lover, a skilled zombie hunter (Raba), whose survival techniques go beyond pragmatism to assassination.
