It’s all the rage these days to turn a horror series into a TV show, following the success of the likes of Bates Motel and Hannibal, and with Scream and The Omen getting their small-screen debuts on the horizon, it looks like Saw might be joining the ranks.
While at this weekend’s annual ScareFest Horror & Paranormal Convention in Lexington, Kentucky, Dread Central caught up with Cary Elwes to talk about his work in the Saw series as Doctor Gordon. When asked if he would return to the role again Elwes said, “Oh, absolutely, but only if Saw took on another form. Like, say… a TV series”
According to Dread Central reporter Jinx, Elwes then gave a knowing smile as if to indicate something.
Elwes, who stared in the first Saw movie, has said that his agreement with the filmmakers was to feature in the final movie as a bookend to the series. »

It's amazing what a bit of clever editing, some title cards, and a hint of slo-mo can do. In this recut trailer for The Princess Bride, these elements blend to turn a romantic fantasy that was fit for children of all ages into a horror movie in the vein of Single White Female or Dressed To Kill. In 1987, Rob Reiner brought us The Princess Bride, an adaptation of a fairy tale penned by William Goldman. Robin Wright starred as Buttercup, a beautiful--if demanding--princess who'd won the eye of a loyal and dashing farmboy Westley (Cary Elwes). But their love was thwarted when the selfish and vile Prince Humperdink swept in and stole Buttercup away to be his own bride. Everyone knows that Westley returns as the Dread Pirate Roberts to rescue Buttercup from her crooked, crowned captor! But what the trailer above asks is, what he didn't? What if instead »
For a while in the late eighties and early nineties, you couldn’t move for films about unhinged whack-jobs insinuating themselves into someone’s peaceful life to turn it upside down. Pacific Heights gave us the lodger from hell in 1990, while The Hand That Rocks The Cradle introduced the psychotic nanny two years later, and The Crush asked us to consider a deranged teenaged Alicia Silverstone a threat to Cary Elwes in 1993.
For a while, until the fad died down, it seemed Hollywood was happy to mine any possible professional or social relationship for paranoid scares. What if your vet was trying to kill you? Your barista? Your gynecolog- no, no. That’s going too far.
But there’s nothing quite like the concept of the obsessive stranger to push all of our buttons – the idea that someone might come out of nowhere to ruin our lives. After all, »

This is the trailer for a melodramatic looking movie called Reach Me. The film features an ensemble cast, and the story follows a group of people who end up all being connected by a self-help book written by a mysterious author. I guess one of the best films to compare this to would be Paul Haggis' Oscar winning movie Crash.
The film was written and directed by John Herzfeld (2 Days in the Valley), and he crammed a lot of stories into one movie. The movie is set to be released on October 24th, and it definitely looks interesting.

It’s been a long time since Sylvester Stallone tackled a “serious” drama, but The Expendables star is set to give it another go with Reach Me, a movie which also stars Terry Crews, Kelsey Grammer, Thomas Jane, Kevin Connolly, Kyra Sedgwick, Ryan Kwanten, Tom Berenger, Tom Sizemore, Cary Elwes and Nelly.
Comparisons have been made to Crash, though based on this trailer, Reach Me – which follows a group of troubled people who come together after reading a self-help book written by a mysterious author – looks more like a B-Movie version of that type of film which would be better suited being released straight to DVD!
