Arnold Schwarzenegger Talks Terminator: Genesis; Film Has T2 Vibe

Mon, 03/17/2014 - 19:36

We are all praying that Terminator: Genesis can get this once incredible franchise back on track, and if its star Arnold Schwarzenegger has anything to say about it, it's gonna do just that!

Collider caught up with Arnold to get the scoop! "The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top. It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, 'Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?'"

The four-month shoot is set to begin in April, with the film being primarily shot in New Orleans. A July 2015 release is planned at this time.

Jai Courtney will play Kyle Reese alongside Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke's John Connor.

Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script, and Alan Taylor will direct.

Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel Makes its Online Debut!

Mon, 03/17/2014 - 18:14

It's been an unusually festive St. Patrick's Day for horror fans between the first footage of Leprechaun: Origins and Vamprechaun's IndieGoGo campaign. But this free online novel may be the strangest and most compelling of them all.

That's right, kids! Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel is serialized horror delivered by some of the best names in genre literature. Join Cameron Pierce, Adam Cesare, and Shane McKenzie as they bring you an all-new novel built around a musical adaptation of Leprechaun in the Hood.

I know what you're thinking: "dafuq" or something along those lines, right? Read on for a little bit more clarification, or head on over to Reddit and start reading!

What the hell is this?

Leprechaun in the Hood: The Musical: A Novel is a serial novel that will be released in weekly installments, for free, on Dreadit, the /r/horror Reddit.

It tells the story of what happens when a group of friends try to put on a stage musical based on the film Leprechaun in the Hood, only to end up falling foul of the real-life inspiration for the films, and boy is this leprechaun pissed.

So it’s like fanfiction? I thought there was another subreddit for that kind of stuff…

No! The novel is original fiction that works as an homage and gentle parody of the franchise while telling its own, completely original story. All characters in the novel are original (including our leprechaun) and no copyrighted material is used.

Sounds cool, who are these guys writing it?

Cameron Pierce is not only a Wonderland Award winning author (Die You Doughnut Bastards, Lost in Cat Brain Land), editor (In Heaven Everything is Fine: Fiction Inspired by David Lynch), and a star in the bizarro fiction scene, but he also runs Lazy Fascist Press, an alternative lit publisher. Lazy Fascist and its releases have been covered in the L.A. Times, Forbes, the New York Times Arts Beat, and Business Week.

Horror author Adam Cesare’s novels include Video Night, The First One You Expect and The Summer Job. He’s garnered praise from the likes of John Skipp and Duane Swierczynski. His writing has been featured in Fangoria and The Los Angeles Review of Books.

One of the biggest names in extreme horror, Shane McKenzie is the author of Muerte Con Carne, Pus Junkies and many others. He’s also the co-author of Sixty-Five Stirrup Iron Road (with Brian Keene, Edward Lee, Jack Ketchum, and others) and penned the short film M Is for Matador, which will be featured in ABCs of Death 1.5. He also writes comics for Zenescope.

Where and When Can I find it again?

The first installment will go live on St. Patrick’s Day (March 17th) only on Dredit.

The Monkey's Paw Scratches its Way to Blu-ray and DVD

Mon, 03/17/2014 - 17:16

I have fond memories of reading The Monkey's Paw as a child, and Chiller TV's version does a great job of keeping chills steadily running down the old spine. Now you can see for yourself as it's getting set to hit home video.

From the Press Release
One wish. A thousand regrets. Scream Factory presents The Monkey’s Paw from Chiller Films on Blu-ray and DVD on June 17 with bonus features including behind-the-scenes footage, a theatrical trailer, and commentary with director Brett Simmons, cinematographer Scott Winig, and actor CJ Thomason.

After Jake Tilton (CJ Thomason, Sutures) acquires a mystical "monkey's paw" talisman that grants its possessor three wishes, he finds his world turned upside-down after his first two wishes result in his malevolent coworker, Tony Cobb (Stephen Lang, Avatar), being resurrected from the dead. When Cobb pressures Jake into using the final wish to reunite Cobb with his son, his intimidation quickly escalates into relentless murder – forcing Jake to outwit his psychotic friend and save his remaining loved ones.

Also starring Corbin Bleu (High School Musical, Nurse 3D), Charles S. Dutton (Legion), Michelle Pierce ("NCIS") and Daniel Hugh Kelley (Cujo), The Monkey’s Paw is adapted from the renowned short story by W.W. Jacobs and picks up where the story left off.

    During his appearance on Dread Central Live, Leprechaun franchise creator Mark Jones (Scorned) talked a bit about his next horror project, Vamprechaun, and now he wants YOU to help deliver the goods!

    "I actually have a new horror franchise that I came up with, and it actually may involve Warwick Davis," Jones told co-hosts Staci Layne Wilson and Vanessa "Gore Whore" Gomez during the broadcast. "In it a vampire bites a Leprechaun, creating a Vamprechaun."

    "So now you have this little vampire, completely different character, completely different prosthetics design... Being that he's little, he'll be biting your ankles instead of your neck because he can't reach it, and he gets all these women... It will be comedy-horror of course, and we're in talks now trying to put that together. I think it will be the next big franchise, and I think Warwick's fans would love it so if we make that happen, that will be next for me. We have a really good script so I think it's gonna work."

    Want to help? Visit the official Vamprechaun IndieGoGo page.

    Synopsis
    What happens when an evil, greedy, wicked little leprechaun is bitten by a bloodthirsty vampire? A bizarre twist on two classic horror monster legends results in a new and original horror creature that represents the worst in both monster breeds. A horrific, malevolent bloodsucker that will thrill contemporary audiences worldwide, while scaring them out of their seats... Vamprechaun!

    A little, evil leprechaun searches for the most precious mineral on earth, more valuable than platinum or gold. A rare substance called... Red-Gold! This precious mineral is known only to exist in the deep, dark, hidden caverns in Ireland and guarded by magical Red Vampire Bats...

    Our leprechaun, in his quest to acquire this Red-Gold, discovers its hidden location... only to be bitten by one of the Red Vampire Bats that transforms him into a... Vamprechaun!

The visitors are “Xiliens,” who take human form and announce they would like to negotiate a peace treaty that would replace the United Nations with a “United Universe.” They are indeed too good to be true, however. It doesn’t take long before their nefarious real purpose is exposed -- conquering Earth. Greatly outmatched, Earth officials decide to de-freeze Godzilla as man’s only hope to vanish the invaders, as well as the monsters they control. Only trouble is Godzilla is still mad at man for freezing him in the first place. Godzilla: Final Wars has a run time of approximately 125 minutes and is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence.

    Meet Witch Hunter Cotton Mather - One of the People of Salem

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:50

    Driven by secret obsessions and desire, Cotton Mather (played by Seth Gabel) is the well-educated local aristocrat who fans the flames of the town's witch hunt in WGN America's new series "Salem," and a new video has arrived to introduce you to him.

    In “Salem” witches are real, but they are not who or what they seem. The show, which centers on an epic romance wrapped around this explosive revelation, delivers a bold new vision of Salem – and an even bolder new vision of witches.

    “Salem,” premiering on Sunday, April 20th, enters the world of the most notorious witch trials in history, a period steeped in fear, suspicion, and hysteria.

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:40

    It never ceases to make us giggle every time we report on a movie before anyone has a clue what it us, and then a couple of weeks later it's everywhere. Such is life I guess. In any event, The Dude Designs has premiered a new one-sheet for Wolf Cop, and it simply rules!

    Next Season of American Horror Story Will Have a Carnival Theme

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:32

    The most persistent rumor about the impending fourth season of FX's mega-popular show "American Horror Story" is that it will have a carnival theme, which has made us quite excited about the potential for such a fun idea. Today comes confirmation of the rumors. Read on!

    "American Horror Story" writer Douglas Petrie was recently interviewed on the Nerdist Writers Panel podcast, where he was pressed for details about the show's fourth season.

    Though he at first declined to comment, Petrie confirmed the rumors of a carnival theme when they were brought up, saying that the season doesn't yet have a title but that yes, the carnival theme is the rough idea that they're working with.

    Earlier this year creator Ryan Murphy hinted that Season 4 will take place in two different time periods, mainly set in the 1950s, which is the only other piece of information we really know about the season thus far.

    Last we heard, Jessica Lange will be returning for one more go at it, and both Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett have also recently expressed interest in returning.

    More as we learn it!

    For more info in the meantime, visit the show's Facebook page and Twitter feed along with "American Horror Story" on FX.

    The Hunchback of Notre Dame Returns in Upcoming Miniseries Ugly

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:28

    Published way back in 1831, Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame has been adapted countless times over the years and turned into a handful of feature films and stage plays. Now our old pal Quasimodo is headed for the small screen. Read on for details!

    Variety reports that director Roland Joffe (The Killing Fields, Captivity) has teamed up with FremantleMedia to develop a miniseries titled "Ugly," which is based on Hugo's iconic novel. It will be an eight-part adaptation set in the late 17th and early 18th centuries.

    The miniseries will begin with the birth of a boy to an aristocratic family. The boy is deformed, and his family abandons him by the roadside in a basket, where he is discovered by a troupe of traveling actors. They name him "Ugly."

    The story follows Ugly into adulthood, exploring the nature of beauty and ugliness, what it means to be human, and notions of morality.

    Alongside the story of Ugly, Joffe has introduced a second story strand, that of John Law, a Scottish economist, who is put in charge of France’s finances by King Louis XV. Joffe said that the introduction of Law’s story is one of the ways he is making the story relevant to today’s audiences. Law’s great innovation is the introduction of paper money, which in turn leads to speculation. Law policies cause a financial crisis, which ruins the country.

    FremantleMedia Intl. will introduce the miniseries to buyers at next month’s TV market MipTV in Cannes. Joffe hopes to move into production next year.

    First Poster Teases Fox's Maze Runner Adaptation

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:23

    For those looking forward to the big screen adaptation of The Maze Runner, which we've been talking about for some time now, you'll be pleased to know that the trailer will at long last be finding its way out of the maze this week, premiering tonight during MTV's "Teen Wolf."

    In the meantime, check out a slick new piece of poster art for the flick courtesy of Digital Spy, which shows the towering scope of the film's titular maze, along with a teaser of the trailer!

    Look for The Maze Runner, starring Dylan O’Brien, Jacob Latimore, Will Poulter, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Blake Cooper, and Thomas Brodie-Sangster, on October 24, 2014. Noah Oppenheim and James Dashner (author of the novel) wrote the script. Wes Ball directs.

    Synopsis
    Based on the young-adult novel by James Dashner, “The Maze Runner” centers around teen Thomas (O’Brien), who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is. What he does come to find out is that he’s been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a slew of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth — all the while establishing a functioning society within the enclosure they’ve come to call “The Glade."

    IFC Gives Cold in July a May Theatrical/VOD Date

    Mon, 03/17/2014 - 15:17

    Director Jim Mickle's (Stake Land, We Are What We Are) adaptation of Joe R. Lansdale's Cold in July was scooped up by IFC at Sundance earlier this year, which has had us itching for a release announcement. Today it has arrived along with a new still, and we've never been so happy about a cold front moving in!

    IFC Films has announced that Cold in July will be given a VOD release on May 23rd, the same date it embarks on a limited theatrical run.

    Michael C. Hall stars alongside Vinessa Shaw, Don Johnson, Sam Shepard, Wyatt Russell, and Mickle's co-writer Nick Damici.

    Synopsis
    How can a split-second decision change your life? While investigating noises in his house one balmy Texas night in 1989, Richard Dane (Hal) puts a bullet in the brain of low-life burglar Freddy Russell. Although he’s hailed as a small-town hero, Dane soon finds himself fearing for his family’s safety when Freddy’s ex-con father, Ben (Shepard), rolls into town, hell-bent on revenge.

    Michael C. Hall brings a shell-shocked vulnerability to his portrayal of Dane that contrasts perfectly with the grizzled badasses portrayed by Sam Shepard and Don Johnson. Directed with an excellent eye for the visual poetry of noir by Jim Mickle (We Are What We Are), this pulpy, Southern-fried mystery is a throwback to an older breed of action film, one where every punch and shotgun blast opens up both physical and spiritual wounds. Twists and turns accelerate as the film reaches its inevitable destination: a gore-soaked dead end. Cold in July is as muggy, oppressive, and hard to shake as an east Texas summer.
