The Dark Stranger

Terrorized by a character come to life out of her latest graphic novel, a young artist struggles to overcome her psychosis before it destroys her in The Dark Stranger, a film from Moonstone Entertainment that just completed production and no doubt hopes to be heading our way soon.

Written and directed by Chris Trebilcock and produced by Glen Wood, Jay Firestone, and Paula Devonshire, The Dark Stranger stars Enrico Colantoni, Katie Findlay, and Stephen McHattie.

Synopsis:
Leah, a talented young artist, is recovering from a recent traumatic event and afraid to leave her own home. She begins drawing a dark graphic novel in which an ominous Dark Stranger pursues a lonely girl doll across a foreboding fairy tale landscape. Soon Leah begins to see The Dark Stranger in real life. At first she isn’t sure if she is completely losing her mind, or if the Stranger is a deadly supernatural force trying to destroy her. Piece by piece, The Dark Stranger tears apart her life, killing anyone who comes between her and the make believe world she has created.

Whatever Happened to Scream: The TV Series Season 3?

Published

on

I don’t know about you but I was a big fan of the first two seasons of MTV’s Scream: The TV Series. It breaks down like this: Scream is my favorite horror movie (and the first one I ever saw) and I would watch and love any incarnation of the series, even a Saturday morning cartoon, I’m there.

It’s with this in mind I’m really looking forward to the upcoming rebooted third season, which was supposed to air this past March… but that didn’t happen. So where is the third season of MTV Scream? You guess is as good as mine, but that said we do have a slight update on the series via new star Tyler Posey.

Posey recently was out and about talking this and that about his role in the recent Blumhouse teen horror flick Truth or Dare and let slip a bit about how he came to be cast in Scream season 3.

When I watched the first season of Scream, I fell in love the cast,” Posey told Daily Dead. “Then when they rebooted the entire thing for season three, and I got a call from one of my friends who was the director of photography on Teen Wolf, and he was also hired to come and do Scream. He called me, and he was like, “Hey, man. There’s this role that we would love to have you play. Would you want to come down and play with us?”

He continues: “I didn’t have to read the role or really know anything about the script to immediately be on board because one, I was excited to work with my friend again. Two, it was in Atlanta and that’s where we filmed Teen Wolf for the first two seasons, so I was excited to go back there. Three, I’m a huge fan of the Scream movies, and Ghostface is such an iconic character, so I thought it would cool to be in the same show as that universe. That’s one of the things about acting that I just love, where you can get these weird and cool experiences that you can put under your belt. For me, being on screen with a classic character like Ghostface is just really cool.”

Are you excited about the third season of Scream? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The third season of Scream: The TV Series is expected to air sometime this year on MTV.

Season one synopsis:

MTV’s TV series adaptation of the hit horror film franchise. Instigated by a cyberbullying incident that goes viral, a brutal murder in Lakewood stirs memories of a crime spree from the town’s past that has haunted some, intrigued others and maybe just spawned a new executioner. At the center of the story is a group of teenagers, with two old friends struggling to reconnect at its heart who become lovers, enemies, suspects, targets and victims of a killer who’s out for blood.

Jamie Lee Curtis Calls Blumhouse Halloween Footage “Terrifying”

Published

on

Last week we shared the first poster for Blumhouse’s Halloween with you guys, and for those of you that somehow missed it, you can check it out to the right. And speaking of the new film, today we have a fun update via Scream Queen supreme, Jamie Lee Curtis.

Curtis recently sat down with Yahoo! to discuss her role in the upcoming Blumhouse sequel and she had more than a few interesting things to say.

I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying,” Curtis said. “They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”

Full-tilt boogeyman. Classic. She then talks about what drew her back to the franchise after unofficially calling it quits following Halloween: Ressurection.

As soon as I read what David Green and Danny McBride had come up with … and the way that they connected the dots of the story, it made so much sense to me that it felt totally appropriate for me to return to Haddonfield, Ill., for another 40th-anniversary retelling.

Curtis then talks about what she thinks should be the official title of the new film.

There was the idea of, ‘What do you call it?’ and if I had had my druthers, I probably would’ve called it Halloween Retold. Because it’s being retold. It’s the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter.”

And finally, she speaks about how people who love horror movies are going to love this new film: “For people who like that sort of thing, I think it’s going to be really fun for them to experience. For me, that just doesn’t hold any interest to me. Because I’m frightened enough about all [today’s political climate]. So the idea of now paying money and sitting in a dark theater with a bunch of people and watching something really scary doesn’t really do much for me. But there are a lot of people who love it, and they’re gonna love this movie.”
