Mancini Talks Child's Play Reboot

Despite what they say, I just don’t get why the Child’s Play franchise needs a reboot. A new film that picks up where Seed ended could be pretty damn cool if they kept it dark, but at least series creator Don Mancini’s doing it himself.

Friday the 13th Teaser! Quick!

I seriously doubt this will be up long, so make sure you get your eyes on it now if you really want to see a crappy shot-at-Comic-Con version of the Friday the 13th remake trailer.

The Wolfman's Site Howls to Life!

In the midst of all the Comic-Con madness, this bit of news managed to catch our eyes while wading through the crowds. The official site of Universal's The Wolfman launched today and provided us with a more detailed synopsis than what we've seen floating around before (see image below).

Happy Friday the 13th! Jason's Mask Revealed!

Well, I guess being a music station gets you some pull with Platinum Dunes, eh? So what, we’re not good enough to post video from the set of the Friday the 13th remake? I kid, of course. I was honored just to be invited to set! MTV just put up the first look at Jason’s mask from the upcoming reboot. I got to hold said mask on set and let me tell ya, it’s pretty damn sexy. Sure, it’s nothing groundbreaking but why should it be? It’s iconic!

The Echo Trailer is Here!

Hot on the heels of the news that Yam Laranas’ The Echo would be making it’s North American premiere at this year’s Fantasia, Twitch Film just got an early look at the official international sales trailer for the film, which you can check out below.

Nightmare Remake Stalks Writers

Platinum Dunes, in their neverending quest to remake anything they can toss some sweat and dirt on, have been eyeing up who would be the best pick to script the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. Was their choice going to go over well with genre fans? Maybe...

Last House Cast Come Knocking

Sometimes a remake might not be a bad thing. Sure, we've seen plenty of bad ones, made for really bad reasons, but then there are filmmakers out there that just want to improve on an original and sometimes succeed.

New Pics from The Wolfman Set!

For a change, it looks like the next two years may have remakes we horror fans actually want to see. Shocking, I know. While there are some stinkers and iffy titles on the way, The Wolfman stands out mainly because of the talented cast assembled for the project ... and we haven't had too many good werewolf films in recent memory.

The Fury Next on the Remake Block

First Sisters, now The Fury. Brian DePalma’s early work seem ripe for re-imagining (oh, God I hate that word) in today’s Hollywood. But at least they were smart with Sisters and got Doug Buck behind it. How much do you wanna bet the same doesn’t happen with The Fury?

What the Hell? A Hell Night Remake?!

I sure am glad I turned down that lifetime subscription to Entertainment Weekly. The magazine shot out some news recently that is sure to infuriate horror fans but most likely guarantee a huge box office success just like we saw with the new Prom Night (review).

Nana Visitor is Pamela Voorhees

There's going to be grit! There's going to be dirt! There's going to be a beautiful woman who was once the fantasy of many "Star Trek" fans! Ah, Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th has added someone to the cast to kinda be excited about!

Barker on Hell, Thief & Gospels

If this were a just universe, studios would buy the movie rights to make an adaptation of Clive Barker’s work and then just step back and let the man do whatever needed to be done to make sure it turned out right. It is not, sadly, so Barker just has to go with the flow, even if it means the two guys who were supposed to remake Hellraiser, two guys he liked a lot, are removed and he has no say as to who does do it.

Sound the Sirens! A Trailer Approaches!

Sony has just released a trailer of the new Siren game, revealing some very striking graphics, some great music and lots of Silent Hill-esque overtones. Seems like this supposed remake is going the route of The Grudge, inserting a few American characters into the horrible events taking place in Japan, and based on the combination of English and Japanese dialogue, it’s something I hope they don’t change.

First Look at Aja's Mirrors

Well, it’s not the most exciting first look, but it’s something, right? Today the Spanish site Aullidos got the first look at Mirrors, the latest remake of Hills Have Eyes redux director Alexandre Aja.

Troll Remake Looking for its Potter

Even though it’s been a while since we've heard anything about John Carl Buechler’s remake of his own 1986 film, Troll, that doesn’t mean the project is dead in the water. Indeed, casting is now in full swing and the search for Harry Potter, Jr. has begun!
