Love it or hate it, The X-Files was a cultural milestone that brought horror back in a big way. Like the rest of America, I went through the mid-Nineties completely addicted and eagerly anticipated the Friday night paranoia of agents Mulder and Scully. But following the departure of writers Glen Morgan & James Wong and the first big screen movie, the show took a creative nosedive and slowly burnt out through season after season of bad story arcs. Now, seven years later, The X-Files: I Want To Believe hopes to reignite the glory days for a whole new generation.
The makers of The Lost Boys: The Tribe sure are taking the film’s heritage seriously, bringing back both characters and music from Joel Schumacher’s original for the sequel, which hits DVD July 29th (pre-order it here).
The last time we saw the Creeper, he was nailed to a wall with a harpoon gun pointed, happily awaiting his return in 23 years. Just how will the "Bat Outta Hell" manage to escape the trap that has been waiting for him for over two decades?
Just got a heads up from a reader that YouTube's hosting a very cool behind-the-scenes news report from the set of The Descent 2, which will be wrapping up its shoot sometime this week. Its focus is on the studio they were using for the sequel, but there’s a lot of great footage of Crawlers and a very dirty Shauna MacDonald. Check it out below, and keep your eyeballs peeled for our Descent 2 set report very soon!
Yep, that’s the first look at a crawler from The Descent 2, the much-maligned sequel that’s coming our way whether we like it or not. Shooting just recently wrapped in London on the follow-up, and Fango got the first pic of one of the new crawlers. Which looks remarkably similar to the old crawlers...
In a story over on Twitch about the English-subtitled DVD release of L: Change the World in Hong Kong, my ocular organs ran across a full plot synopsis for the film, which I realized I had never read before. We’ve been reporting on the Death Note sequel/spin-off for months now, but never actually knew what it was about. Strange.
What is with all the Terminator 3 hate? It was a passable entry that threw us a curve ball and became a segway to jump into the future wars. Honestly, how many more times did we need tales of John Conner somehow stopping the apocalyptic future from raining down on mankind?
During the recent New York Comic Con, we got the chance to talk on-camera with a lot of the creative force behind Hellboy 2: The Golden Army including Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, stars Selma Blair and Ron Perlman and of course director Guillermo del Toro.
Megan Good remembers being a kid and wanting to be just like Danielle Harris in Halloween 4, a memory that helped her along when the time came to star in her own horror sequel, Saw V.
It was just a few days ago that I finished a story commenting that I wished they'd hurry up and get a new trailer out there for Minoru The Calamari Wrestler Kawasaki's remake/sequel/parody/whatever of The X From Outer Space. And they'd need to hurry too since The Monster X Strikes Back: Attack the G8 Summit opens in Japanese theaters on July 27th.
Over the weekend, those Spanish badasses at Aullidos got their hands on the first teaser poster for REC 2, the inevitable sequel to REC (review) that will hopefully take things in a completely different direction...
A few days ago an international trailer for the upcoming X-Files: I Want to Believe feature appeared on the giant series of tubes known as the interwebs. It was promptly taken down, but has since resurfaced on YouTube. Perhaps this time it will stick around longer than an hour.
Quick quiz; what's the very last thing you'd want Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury to follow-up Inside (DVD review) with now that they're off the Hellraiser remake? If you said Halloween 2, you'd be 100% correct!
I don't get why one would miss out on the chance to play what could be an iconic character in a new franchise just so one could be in a French comedy. So I guess it's good I'm not Charlotte Gainsbourg, eh?
Edgar Frog is going to have his work cut out for him. What are the odds that his newest adventure against Xtreme suckheads is going to garner the same kind of following that the original Lost Boys had? The follow-up does look to have a bit of promise, but without the sax man, it's just not going to be the same.
