Lionsgate sure does enjoy moving its films around lately, but there was one title we were positive would stay in its place, My Bloody Valentine.
I guess it’s not really a helluva lot of information, but it could be enough to ruin your morning if you’re not careful. Rob Cohen caught up with the B-D boys recently to chat about his latest film, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and dropped some potentially disturbing news about the 1987 classic The Monster Squad.
Hollywood Insider chatted it up with Michael Bay recently about all the various explosive pies his dynamite fingers have been in: Transformers, Ouija and the hot topic known as Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th.
I always said they’d need a very hot group of women if they were going to remake Kevin Tenney’s Night of the Demons, and it looks like director Adam Gierasch agrees with me!
AITH picked up the newest trailer for Quarantine and it raised some new questions. We know that everything is shot from a news cameraman's equipment, but the entire film looks pretty steady and in HD. Maybe all the complaints via Cloverfield-sickness made director John Dowdle opt for a less shaky film?
No, it's not that ridiculous plot device from Pulse. We're talking about a brand new red-band trailer for Alexandre Aja's Mirrors starring Kiefer Sutherland.
The Brothers Dowdle are shaping their remake of REC (review) up pretty nicely. Those of us who have seen the original may not jump the same way twice, but it's pretty easy to see that their interpretation of the Spanish original may just do the trick on a fresh audience.
I’ve been hearing some mixed things about John Dowdle's Quarantine recently, but I can’t help but be curious how he pulls of this remake of REC (review), one of the most-loved horror films in recent years.
Strangely enough, I could see Josh Brolin doing well as Snake Plissken. I mean, in a world where we just have to accept that yes, they are remaking Escape From New York, Brolin’s certainly not the worst choice to don the eyepatch.
Seeing that Hollywood has jumped on the fantasy bandwagon (after Peter Jackson made it ultra profitable), it does not surprise me that Troll is up on the remake block. Looking back on the original, it wasn't all that bad ... in comparison to the sequel.
Having seen a good portion of Alexandre Aja's Mirrors in the editing room, I was a bit disappointed in the official trailer that just came online. It felt completely generic, like a bad Ghost House Pictures movie. As a response, the good people at Fox threw us this juicy new featurette, which is a much better representation of the nightmarish, eye-popping nature of the flick. Beware of a few brief spoilers!
Anthony Hickox first mentioned a possible remake of his seminal 80’s classic monster mash-up Waxwork when I interviewed him a few months back (read about it, and a possible Waxwork musical, right here).
UPDATE: The trailer for Mirrors is now online and embedded below! Alexandre Aja's remake of of Mirrors is slowly pulling me in. Sure, it's a remake of a Korean ghost story and those are becoming old hat, but something about casting Kiefer Sutherland in it gives the film and edge that the others lack. Too bad we haven't seen a trailer yet, and the release is just a couple months away. Oh Aja! Why do you tease us!
