R.I.P. ‘Friday the 13th Part 3’ Star Gloria Charles

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 11:26

Friday the 13th Part 3 is an interesting installment in the franchise because Jason Voorhees isn’t the only threat the film’s main characters have to contend with. They also run afoul of a biker gang at Crystal Lake’s local convenience store; the trio of badass bikers follow them back to Higgins Haven, where they’re eventually killed by Jason. Today we’re sad to learn that actress Gloria Charles, who played the biker known as Fox in Part 3, recently passed away.

Fellow Part 3 star Larry Zerner brought the news to our attention today:

I just learned that Gloria Charles (Fox in F13-3D) passed away in December. She had a great spirit and I’m so sorry to hear this. RIP.

— Larry Zerner (@LarryZerner) April 5, 2017

The Friday franchise’s beloved third installment was Gloria Charles’ screen debut, and she subsequently appeared in films such as Brewster’s Millions and National Lampoon’s European Vacation. Charles mostly left acting behind in the early ’90s, but she did return to the Friday world when she appeared in the docs His Name Was Jason and Crystal Lake Memories.

We don’t yet know any details about Gloria Charles’ passing, but we did come across a Go Fund Me campaign that was started for her back in late November of last year. The campaign noted that she was requiring “24 hour, around the clock, in-home care” at the time. We also found a touching video on YouTube that pays tribute to Charles’ life, which you can watch below.

Mickey Keating, who is one our favorite genre filmmakers. If you haven’t already seen his black and white masterpiece, Darling, do so immediately. Then check out his , with his survival horror Carnage Park also now on VOD. The dude’s been busy, and has yet to disappoint.

Mickey Keating’s Psychopaths, described as a sprawling, psychedelic ensemble piece that follows several serial killers over the course of a single night, will have its world premiere at this month’s Tribeca Film Festival.

Bloody Disgusting was provided with a ton of new images that makes me think we’re in for a slasher-esque treat!

[Exclusive] We’ve Got a Sneak Peek of ‘The Thing’ 35th Anniversary Art Show!

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 10:54

You may hate remakes, but we can all agree that The Thing was a great one.

I’m not sure there’s a better remake on this planet than John Carpenter’s practical effects-laden The Thing, released in the summer of 1982. If you do a little number crunching, you’ll realize that this year is the film’s 35th anniversary, and the folks over at Burbank, California store Creature Features are celebrating a little bit early with a special tribute art exhibit this weekend.

The 35th anniversary group art show will have its opening reception on Saturday, April 8th from 6-9pm PDT. The show will run thru Sunday, April 16th during regular gallery hours.

In 1982, Director John Carpenter unleashed a motion picture that shocked audiences and set new standards in terror and special effects. Now, nearly 35 years later, Creature Features & Printed in Blood, Inc. proudly present an unprecedented group art show celebrating this cinematic masterpiece.

This exhibit showcases original work from over 100 artists all over the world, paying tribute to Carpenter’s chilling vision (and a few choice tributes to its original 1951 predecessor).

The exhibit also includes a major sneak peek at Printed in Blood, Inc’s upcoming THE THING Artbook showcasing over 400-pages of original tribute art.

But why wait until Saturday? We’ve just been provided with an exclusive first look at The Thing art show, so take a peek down below for a small handful of pieces that’ll be on display!

Rock Out with ‘Teenage Ghost Punk’ on Digital HD and VOD

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 10:48

Teenage Ghost Punk looks completely ridiculous, I’m not going to deny that. But it also has a bit of a Disney Channel Original Movie vibe to it. I haven’t seen a DCOM since the late 90’s, early 2000’s, but I loved them growing up. If Teenage Ghost Punk manages to capture half the charm and all those cheesiest of those films, then there could be some decent family-friendly horror here.

The film, from writer/director Mike Cramer, is now available on all your favorite streaming services including iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Xbox, FlixFling, DirecTV, Comcast, FiOS, AT&T and more. Plus you can order a MOD DVD from Amazon.

Life changes for a cheerleader named Amanda when her family moves to an old Victorian house outside Chicago. While her newly-divorced mom struggles with a new job and her eccentric little brother seems to fit in effortlessly, Amanda tries to find her way in her daunting new high school. Meanwhile, weird things happen in the new house: Knocking sounds, strange guitar riffs in the rain, and unexplained messes. A quirky medium and a bumbling paranormal investigation team search for answers but are scared away an unseen force.

Amanda discovers that her house is haunted by Brian, the teenage punk rock ghost who has been jamming on her roof during rainstorms for thirty years. He enjoys spirited poker nights with a local quintet of teen ghosts from different eras. Amanda and Brian forge an unlikely friendship and feelings deepen, but tension arises when Amanda asks him to the homecoming dance. When uninvited guests arrive at Amanda’s Halloween party, paranormal investigators clash with Chicago’s most badass spirit, and the neighborhood’s past collides with its present. How will Amanda solve her future?

Let’s Have a ‘Pool Party Massacre’ This Summer

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 10:15

Floating Eye Films has released the first trailer and stills for the old school splatterfest Pool Party Massacre.  The debut feature from horror fanatic Drew Marvick, Pool Party Massacre is an ultra low-budget 80’s-inspired slasher that cuts to the flesh and bone of a group of young friends.  With a pounding synth score and a heavy metal soundtrack, Marvick has crafted a loving homage to the body count of 80s B-movies.

Blair Winthorpe, a high-maintenance young socialite, is having a pool party while her parents are out of town. What should have been a relaxing summer day spent tanning for the girls quickly becomes a blood-soaked nightmare when an unknown guest crashes the party.  He finds a garage full of dangerous toys and gets to work stalking and dismembering them one by one.

Pool Party Massacre is expected to premiere in 2017.

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 10:10

Wild Eye Releasing unlocks the doors to award-winning filmmaker Jay Woelfel’s supernatural horror feature Asylum of Darkness this April.

Woeful’s “stirring cocktail of supernatural suspense and goosebump-inducing horror” features a superlative cast of sci-fi and horror icons including Golden Globe nominee Richard Hatch (“Battlestar Galactica”), in one his final film appearances.

Tim Thomerson (Trancers, Near Dark, Nemesis) and Tiffany Shepis (12 Monkeys, Tromeo and Juliet, Tales of Halloween) also star in the movie, described as “a striking, spine-tingling horror jaunt, shot in 35mm, that resembles the works of genre icons Lynch and Cronenberg.”

After awakening in a mental asylum, a patient plans his escape to freedom while fighting off supernatural forces in both the real world, and some that may only live inside his head. But once on the outside, he learns that the life awaiting him is more twisted and dangerous than anything he could conjur in his head, one that is luring him back to the asylum forever.

Written and directed by Woelfel (Season of Darkness, Trancers 6), the film stars Golden Globe Winner Richard Hatch (Dr. Shaker), Tim Thomerson (Detective Kesler), Tiffany Shepis (Hope), Nick Baldasare (Dwight Stroud), Amanda Howell (Ellen), and Frank Jones Jr. (Van Gogh).

Hey, Look, it’s Danny McBride in ‘Alien: Covenant’

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 09:52

Another day, another new look at Riley Scott’s Alien: Covenant, this time giving us a peak at Danny McBride’s character, Tennessee. Not much to see here, although we know, thanks to the trailers, that his character will be side-by-side with star Katherine Waterston as they take on the Neo and Xenomorphs.

Michael Fassbender returns as Prometheus‘ android David (and Walter), with a crew that also includes Demian Bichir, Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills) and James Franco.

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition

Alien: Covenant takes off for Paradise on May 19, 2017.

Here’s a shot of McBride from set that was shared last July.

New ‘Wolves at the Door’ Images Come to a Window for Help

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 09:42

Not exactly at the door, here are some shots of someone screaming for help at a window while a hippie mellows out in Wolves at the Door, a micro-budget horror movie that was made by New Line Cinema and will be released on Digital HD April 18th through Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

“Arrow” actress Katie Cassidy, who also starred in A Nightmare On Elm Street, will play a part inspired by actress Sharon Tate. Annabelle‘s John Leonetti directed the project that took its cues from the horrifying Manson Family murders that shocked Los Angeles in 1969.

Known as the Tate murders, the event saw members of the Charles Manson cult break into the home of Tate, eight-and-a-half months pregnant, and her new husband director Roman Polanski. The director was shooting in Europe at the time, but Tate was entertaining three friends. They were all stabbed and shot to death multiple times.

Elizabeth Henstridge and Jane Kaczmarek also star.

Here’s Why Arnold Schwarzenegger Won’t Appear in ‘The Predator’

Thu, 04/06/2017 - 09:08

One of Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s most prominent roles was in John McTiernan’s 1987 Predator where he played Dutch, a commando who battles an alien warrior in the middle of the Central American Jungle. One of his co-stars was Shane Black, who ghosted on-set rewrites for the sci-fi horror classic.

Black is now directing, currently in Vancouver filming The Predator, which is being pegged as a reboot of the classic film that allegedly takes place in everyday suburbia. Back in March 2016, Schwarzenegger teased a potential return to the franchise, explaining that he was meeting up with Black for lunch. It was all speculation at the time, but apparently, the duo was talking about reuniting on The Predator. The bad news is that we won’t be seeing Dutch in the next Predator, and Schwarzenegger’s reason is a little surprising.

“They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it — whatever they offered,” he tells Yahoo. “So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role. But the way it is now, no, I won’t do that.”

From the aforementioned interview, it sounds more like Schwarzenegger wanted to star as opposed to making a small appearance. This is interesting because he nearly made an appearance in the 2010 Predators as the writers and director Nimród Antal envisioned Schwarzenegger for a cameo, which ultimately ended up featuring Laurence Fishburne in the role of ‘Noland.’

I actually applaud him here because I don’t think any of us want or need fan service, especially if it were to come off as lame as what they did in the Ghostbusters remake. Black is obviously a phenomenal writer, so it’s hard to think he would be doing Schwarzenegger a disservice, but at least it leaves the door open for future films.

In fact, I think this news also implies that the screenplay is envisioned as a sequel of sorts unless of course, Schwarzenegger would be acting in a new role.

Fox has already staked out a February 9, 2018, release date for The Predator.

What do you guys think about what Schwarzenegger said?
