Who here remembers the 1986 metal-driven horror classic Trick or Treat starring Gene Simmons, Ozzy Osborne, and Skippy from "Family Ties"? Anyone?
I guess it’s not surprising to hear that Leonardo DiCaprio is Todd McFarlane’s number one choice for the lead in a Spawn reboot (there’s that damn word again). These days comic adaptations are the rage, and top-tier Hollywood talent has been all over the recent trend, often translating into box office gold.
Tobe Hooper's under-appreciated slasher opus The Funhouse is a huge favorite here around the Dread Central offices. The flick had it all -- gypsies, sex, good kills, a great location, and most importantly a badass looking monster who wore a Frankenstein's Monster mask until his, um ... unveiling. From our point of view this remake is a no-brainer and it seems as if director Eli Roth feels the same way!
In a world populated by shit we do not want to watch, we cannot recommend enough tracking down a copy of the classic film Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires. We're talking one of the original chop-socky vamp flicks ever delivered to us by Hammer and starring Peter Cushing as Van Helsing! Ah, the simple joys of it!
Some more behind-the-scene images popped up online today from Aja's remake of Piranha that show off quite a bit of skin. Not-eaten-by-angry-prehistoric-fish skin.
Now this is how we like to wrap up a Friday! One remake that I'm actually looking forward to is Louis Leterrier's version of the creature-laden classic Clash of the Titans, which is filming as we speak. To take us into the weekend, we now present to you another, much more badass still of Sam Worthington as Perseus. ROCK! Special Features
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th (2009) just around the corner, the good folks at Warner Brothers have sent over several clips for you guys to dig into!
Never mind Linda Hamilton. To hell with Kate Beckinsale. Angelina Jolie be damned! Piranha star Elisabeth Shue will twist you thin little lassies up into knots using nothing but her sheer brute strength!
Reboot. Redux. Remake. Relax. It's all the same crap, isn't it? Entertainment Weekly got word tonight that a potential reboot of Wes Craven's Scream franchise is in the works.
Sure, it sounds like good news at first. Kurt Wimmer, the man responsible for the inexplicable cult favorite Equilibrium (and Ultraviolet, too, just to prove he’s not infallible), is attached to write a remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 classic Total Recall.
Most everyone seems to agree that Sam Worthington was the best thing about the recent Terminator: Salvation so there's little doubt he'll be able to hold his own against such heavy hitters as Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes in Warner Brothers' upcoming retelling of the Perseus myth, Clash of the Titans.
Back in March of this year Stiles White and Juliet Snowden, the writing duo responsible for the upcoming Poltergeist remake, promised to the fans, "It’s treasured; it’s valuable. We see Poltergeist as if, um, as if we’re being handed the keys to the car and we’re gonna be really careful with it."
Well, kids, it looks like we have yet another flick to add to the remake pile and, as is occurring more and more these days, it's gonna be in *surprise* 3D!
Michael Puente from Chicago-based Public Radio station KBEZ reported in from the Gary, Indiana, set of the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot, and it looks like the project has generated mixed feelings among the townsfolk.
