Creeping Shadows Creeping onto Bookshelves

Published

on

Yesterday was the first day of fall, which means for a large portion of the country it’s getting to be that time of the year when thoughts turn to curling up by the fire with a nice juicy novel or two. How about three in one? Information on Creeping Shadows recently came across our desk, and it offers up a trio of fables of mayhem and murder from some of today’s most cutting edge authors.

Included in the collection are:

  • Alan Draven’s “Vengeance Is Mine” – It is the year 1888, and the district of Whitechapel, London is terrorized by Jack the Ripper. Prostitutes dread the coming of night as the Ripper prowls the streets for fresh prey. But one of his victims comes back from beyond death to haunt him and show him what it is to live in fear.
  • Brandon Ford’s “Merciless” – Kidnapped by a madman, two teenage girls form an instant bond in the back of a speeding SUV. Bound and gagged, they face a night of unspeakable horrors. Inspired by a true story, “Merciless” is a tale of murder, madness, and survival.
  • Jessica Lynne Gardner’s “Sugar Skull” – Shortly after her father’s funeral, strange things begin to happen to Annabel Perez. A detective investigates as poisoned corpses pile up all with the same symptoms of Annabel’s father. Together, Anna, her mother, and the detective must solve the puzzle to the strange dreams of skeletons, Aztec rituals, and family secrets before they are next. A sinister-looking Mexican sugar skull found in her father’s old cigar box might just be the answer … or the means to her death.
  • Creeping Shadows, a collection of three novellas from Alan Draven, Brandon Ford, and Jessica Lynne Gardner

    Harrelson’s Carnage Only Has a Small Role in VENOM Starring Tom Hardy

    Published

    on

    Two months back we let you guys know that there was a rumor floating around that Woody Harrelson was going to be playing Carnage in Marvel’s upcoming R-rated adaptation of Venom starring Tom Hardy.

    Carnage creator David Michelinie responded to the casting choice over on Facebook saying, “Harrelson’s a good actor and has a decent range. He’s played nutso characters in the past, but I guess we’ll have to wait until October to see just how far he can ramp it up. Fingers crossed.”

    And today we have word that whether or not Harrelson is playing Carnage or not, his role will be fairly small – at least this time around.

    I’m in a little fraction of this movie,” Harrelson told Collider. “But I’ll be in the next one, you know? So I haven’t read that script, but anyway, just rolled the dice.”

    This makes me think that Harrelson’s Carnage will be an ending teaser. What do you think? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

    Directed by Ruben Fleischer, Venom stars Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams, Riz Ahmed, Scott Haze, and Reid Scott. It infects theaters on October 5th.

    The Real Reason Shane Black Directed THE PREDATOR

    Published

    on

    Later this summer we will be hit by Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s reboot The Predator starring Tom Jane. And one of the cooler bits of trivia that I’m sure you know – but it will still impress your friends – is that Black played a significant role in the original film by John McTiernan.

    He played Hawkins. And that was always, we felt, reason enough for Black to sign on to direct the classic alien action film’s newest installment. But it turns out, Black has other reasons as well.

    I just thought that it was a great, iconic alien,” Black told Cinema Blend. “And, what separated it from other alien invasion movies wasn’t just a space plot, it was an actual space creature with a mythos and a sense of honor, in some respect. A mission. And, a sense of humor, oddly. The idea of the game it plays. It’s rare that the Predator shows humor, but there are moments where you see it almost look at someone like, ‘Really?’

    Are you excited for The Predator to arrive? 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 Predator is directed by Shane Black from a script written by Black and Fred Dekker and stars Boyd Holbrook, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Olivia Munn, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, Augusto Aguilera, Jake Busey, and Edward James Olmos. The film hits theaters nationwide September 14, 2018.

    Synopsis:

    From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home in Shane Black’s explosive reinvention of the Predator series. Now, the universe’s most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a young boy accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and a disgruntled science teacher can prevent the end of the human race.

    This HALLOWEEN II Scene Was Too Much for Scout Taylor-Compton

    Published

    on

    Scout Taylor-Compton is no strange to the horror game. After all, she has starred in not only Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II, but you can also see Compton in such horror flicks April Fool’s Day, Flight 7500, Ghost House, Wicked Little Things, and the recent IFC Midnight movie Feral.

    As you can imagine, Compton isn’t the easiest actress to freak out, but that doesn’t mean one scene from Halloween II didn’t get to her big-time. The scene in question is her character, Laurie Strode’s reaction to (SPOILER) finding her best friend Annie (Danielle Harris) dead after Michael Myers’ brutal bathroom attack.

    That scene gets me so much,” Compton told Daily Dead. “It’s the only scene that I’ve ever done in my career, of any of my horror movies, that I wasn’t able to handle. I had to walk off set after my close-ups because I just couldn’t stop crying.”

    She continues: “It just felt so real to me, because Danielle is like a sister, so just seeing her like that was absolutely heart-wrenching. That was definitely my favorite scene that I have ever done, and it was the hardest.”

    What did you think of Rob Zombie’s Halloween II? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

    Synopsis:

    A year after narrowly escaping death at the hands of Michael Myers (Tyler Mane), Laurie Strode is at the breaking point, pushed to the edge by Dr. Loomis’ (Malcolm McDowell) revelation that she’s Michael’s sister. Little does she know, the unstoppable killer is back in Haddonfield and, driven by visions of their dead mother (Sheri Moon Zombie), he is determined to bring about a bloody family reunion.
