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.

What Will Marvel’s MORBIUS Movie Be About?

Published

on

It isn’t often in this day and age of superheroes that all of us horror fans get a flick to be excited about. Sure we have Venom on the way starring Tom Hardy, but let’s not forget that the planned adaptation of Morbius The Living Vampire should be good horror times as well.

And speaking of which today we have word on just what the Morbius movie might be about. A supposed working logline for the film reads as follows:

Horror action story of a scientist who, in trying to find a cure for a rare blood disease, accidentally transformed himself into a living vampire who, though disgusted by his own bloodlust, chooses to prey upon criminals he deems unworthy of life.”

This is about what we could expect the film to be about, but still, it’s cool to see that the powers that we are approaching the film as a “horror-action” film and not the other way around. This news came to us from That Hashtag Show and thus may not be the official logline for the film, but we will make sure to keep you guys up-to-date on any news we hear regarding this horror-action movie.
