Fear Fest Teams With Wizard World; New Guests Announced!

Published

on

I’m sure there were a lot of you out there who were pretty disappointed when we announced the postponement of Fear Fest 3, which was set to go down next weekend in Dallas. Believe me, no one was more upset by it than we were, but that cloud certainly had a very silver lining, indeed; namely, Fear Fest 3 will now be a part of Wizard World Texas!

The official press release is circulating now, but the long and short of it is that Fear Fest has teamed up with Wizard World to add a horror element to their very successful, long-standing sci-fi/comic convention. Of course a big name like Wizard means some big guests, too; along with the Monster Squad and Friday the 13th: A New Beginnning planned for the October show, Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys, The Goonies, Friday the 13th 4 & 5) and Danny Trejo (From Dusk Till Dawn, Halloween) have been added as headliners!

Wizard World Texas goes down at the Arlington Convention Center this November 7th-9th; check out their full line-up at the Wizard World site, and you can read the official announcement right here!

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.
