Gurdian Readyin’ to Raise Hell



GurdianIt’s Easter Sunday; how about a little hellacious movie news to help celebrate the Risen Christ? First-time writer/director Timothy W. White is set to burst open the gates of hell and unleash Gurdian upon us. If only there were some emotionally scarred misfits and a guy who knows kung fu to stop it?
White promises Gurdian to be the ultimate action/horror film. It’s about a small band of misfit construction workers hired to renovate an old house on the outskirts of civilization…

“Josh, a semi-retired martial artist who is searching for a solid and stable future, tries to help his partner Don who is consumed with alcohol and self-assumed responsibility for the disappearance of his younger brother. Susan is a primadona whose daddy bankrolled the company. She’s self-serving, egocentric and a literal ‘pain in the butt’ to Josh. Janet keeps Susan in check and is a detail specialist. She was hired for both reasons. Janet’s attraction for Wally is a distraction. Teddy is large, strong; a bull worker who’s gambling addiction cost him his professional weight lifting and football career. Not only is Wally often caught up in his wagering with Teddy, Wally is a ‘junior’ partner and often unwittingly screws up. This time, it’s due to his team of young friends that arrive to work. Jake, William and Melissa are into loud music, parties, and skateboards. Melissa is the levelheaded one, and a virgin.”

Little do they know that the owner of this house is a 600-year old gatekeeper. Gatekeeper to what, you ask? Well, let’s just say they unintentionally open a certain gate to Hell and unleash a demonic warrior called Gurdian.

“Gurdian is ancient, and the sentinel of a gate to hell, contained behind a wall in the windowless back room of the house. Gurdian stands nearly 8 foot in height. His girth and Atlas-like physique with golden-bronze skin, black eyes, enhance his blonde lion’s mane of blonde hair that barely covers the two protruding small ram’s horns from each corner of his forehead. His voice is deep and reminiscent of broken glass crunching in gravel. His prowess becomes evident as he finds this long awaited access to freedom made readily available when these ‘misfits’ cause the collapse of the wall containing him. Having to confront their own personal psychological demons while constantly verbally battling each other, the crew finds this a mere obstacle when they realize their very human existence has now come into play. They must set aside their differences, unite, and utilize the skills of their trade to battle Gurdian and avoid the trappings of this house that won’t allow any escape.”

William Romeo, currently seen as “Mayhem” on the new “American Gladiators”, will be playing the monstrous Gurdian. Others starring in the supernatural action thriller include Christa Campbell (2001 Maniac‘s “Milk Maiden”), veteran character actor Jack Donner (perhaps best known as “Romulan Subcommander Tal” on the original “Star Trek”), and Shalim Ortiz (“Alejandro” on “Heroes”).

There’s currently an official webpage for Gurdian though there’s nothing there right now except a “coming soon” splash page. For now you’re better off heading to the Gurdian MySpace page if you’re in search of more information. There at least you’ll find a few generic production stills, a few behind the scenes stills, and more plot details from the lengthy synopsis I nabbed those two paragraphs from.

Expect more details on Gurdian to come!

RG: Expect to have a lot of Halloween themed fun. Each segment has its own flavor so the pacing and the look change throughout the film. With masked killers, vampires, scarecrows, tricksters and old hags there’s something for everyone.

DC: Will there be a sequel?

RG: If there was a demand for it we would make it happen!

Sounds good to us. Thanks for chatting with us, Rocky!

The Duffer Brothers Have Begun Working on Stranger Things 3



I wasn’t the world’s biggest fan of the first season of Netflix and The Duffer Brothers’ “Stranger Things” to tell you the truth. That said, I absolutely loved the second season (read our reviews HERE).

It is with this in mind that we are all looking forward to “Stranger Things 3”.

Recently Deadline reported that at Vulture Festival LA the Duffer Brothers, producer Shawn Levy, Finn Wolfhard, Paul Reiser, and Linnea Berthelsen talked about season two and teased season three.

“We are [in] very early days on season three, and we’re still figuring it out,” Ross Duffer said, before taking a beat, then adding: “I probably wasn’t supposed to say that. That’s not official; that wasn’t an official announcement — we’re just working on it, just for our own amusement… for fun!”


We all know at this point that there is going to be a “Stranger Things 3” and that The Duffer Brothers will one day begin working on it. Don’t worry so much, Ross Duffer.

After all, your brother already let us know that season three will begin after a time jump:

“Even if we wanted to hop into the action faster, we couldn’t,” says Matt Duffer. “Our kids are aging. We can only write and produce the show so fast. They’re going to be almost a year older by the time we start shooting season three. It provides certain challenges. You can’t start right after season two ended. It forces you to do a time jump. It’s a long way of saying that yeah, we’re going to do a time jump.”

What did you think of “Stranger Things 2”? Did you dig it more (or less) than season one? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

“Stranger Things 2” is currently streaming on Netflix.

It’s 1984, and the citizens of Hawkins, Indiana, are still reeling from the horrors of the Demogorgon and the secrets of Hawkins Lab. Will Byers has been rescued from the Upside Down, but a bigger, sinister entity still threatens those who survived.

James Cameron’s Terminator Reboot/Sequel Hires Screenwriter



The last word we brought you guys on producer James Cameron and Deadpool-director Tim Miller’s new Terminator film was when we let you know that Paramount had set the film’s release date for July 26, 2019.

Today we have news via The Wrap that the studio is bringing in screenwriter Billy Ray (Captain Phillips) to pen the movie’s script based on a story crafted by Cameron.

You may remember that Cameron and Miller created a writers room a while back to plan out an all-new trilogy of films, but while that writer’s room included David Goyer, Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman, it seems like Ray will be the first film’s sole writer. For now.

Story details are, of course, being kept under wraps, but Cameron and Miller are treating the new movie as a direct sequel to Cameron’s T2: Judgment Day.

“This is a continuation of the story from ‘Terminator 1’ and ‘Terminator 2.’ And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream,” Cameron told THR. “Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse.”

We also know that Cameron plans to center the new film/trilogy around a new group of younger characters, who will eventually carry on the baton as it were.

“A lot of this is handing off the baton to a new generation of characters,” Cameron said. “We’re starting a search for an 18-something young woman to essentially be the new centerpiece of these stories. And then a number of other characters around her and characters from the future. We still fold time in the story in intriguing ways. But we have Arnold’s character and Linda’s character to anchor it.”

How excited are you for James Cameron’s new Terminator flick? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social mdeia!

The new Terminator film is produced by James Cameron and will be directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool). The film stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

Terminator 2.5 is expected to hit July 26, 2019.
