Before Michael Myers became one of the the best horror icons, the first film was just advertised with a screaming teen. Let’s see what Blumhouse does with the new version, which surely will have a trailer very soon and you can be sure I will oost it the second I see it. 🙂
The original Pet Sematary was one of my favourite horror movies, as it was adapted from my favourite Stephen King story. Now it is set to return to the big screen in April 2019, thanks to the makers of the acclaimed Starry Eyes, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch.
I was thinking that no one could be as iconic as Fred Gwynne in the role of the neighbour who reveals the location of the cemetary that breeds all kinds of problems, but it seems this version may be just as great as he will be played by movie legend John Lithgow, who may have been in a few duds but always gives it his all.
Let’s hope they get someone cool to cover the Ramones song too! 🙂
Ooh, thanks to CineMaterial.com for the first time I have seen this excellent poster for the forthcoming fourth visit to the Purge universe, cannot WAIT for July 4th – The Purge is a REAL Independence Day! 🙂
However you feel about them rebooting Halloween again, surely we can agree that this is a great poster featuring the iconic Shape looking aged and broken down, but I am sure he will get his energy back once he starts killing those sneaky sexing teens. And hey, the Rob Zombie films do not exist in this mojo, so we are back in John Carpenter country. Maybe when this is a success (and with Blumhouse behind it, this is guaranteed) we can get a remake of Season Of The Witch, that song still freaks me after all these years. “Two more days to Halloween…” AHHH!
Holy Sh!t, I cannot wait for Truth Or Dare! I had been hearing buzz about its ‘darkness’ and its ‘sickness’ and it looks like a classic 70’s rollercoaster ride, TCM style and you cannot give a bigger recommendation than that UNLESS your film also features two of my favourite movie icons, the fantastic Ryan Kiser who lest we forget (I didn’t forget) is the best screen Manson ever and Devanny Pinn who portrayed Susan Atkins with such a mix of beautiful seduction and feminine power. TICKET PLEASE.
*EDIT* So the reason that I did not know two of my fave actors were in a big buzz movie is that the new Truth Or Dare is a pg-13 thing with no one I know and this little monster is already a few years old which means I must find it right now! RIGHT NOW, I TELLS YA.
When I was at school, one of the books that really stuck in my imagination was Turn Of The Screw by Henry James, a quietly horrific tale that I would find myself thinking about in my free time and always loving, even after my teacher almost ruined the horror with his soprano shout of “Peter Quint! You Devil!”.
We were treated in English class to the movie version entitled The Innocents, which was an incredible piece of black and white gothic magnificence. Now it seems the next generation is getting their own version entitled The Turning, starring Finn Wolfhard and Mackenzie Davis It is set to be directed by Floria Sigismondi who directed the excellent The Runaways and Spielberg is an executive producer on the project so this should be box office gold and give a new generation the same nightmares we endured – and came back for more of, time and again. 🙂
And congratulations to two of horror’s finest as the second season of their TV show, Hellavator was announced today. 🙂
