Fright At Home – The Best of September!! The Shallows, The Neon Demon, Salem’S Lot and More

27 September 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Typically what we do with our ongoing Fright At Home column, is showcase the top releases of whatever respective week that the column falls on. This time though, I thought it would be fun to spread the coverage to highlight some of our favorite releases to have been put out during the month of September, opening the coverage up to put the spotlight not only Every DVD and/or Bluray, but the ones that caught our eyes. Some of the year’s best genre films have hit home video this month, so it would be silly to leave some of them out just because they came out last week, so they’ve been included, with everything from this week’s releases of The Shallows and The Neon Demon to the month’s earlier releases like The Conjuring 2 and a trio of Stephen King adaptions. So if you’re looking »

Stephen King's It Has Wrapped Production!

23 September 2016 11:12 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It’s a good time to be a Stephen King fan. In the same year, we’ll be getting adaptations of two popular pieces of work from him. As we reported earlier this week, The Dark Tower is set to get both a film adaptation in 2017, and a TV series in 2018. In addition, 2017 will see the first realization of his popular horror novel, It, on the big screen.

Of course, in the mind of many, It was a novel that came on their radar thanks to the TV mini-series back in 1990, which starred Tim Curry. Thanks to TV regulations, there was no way to make a completely “true” version of the film back then. It’s almost 30 years later, and given the technology available, and the increased acceptance of longer stories on film, it appears we’ll be getting the movie we all deserve soon enough.

First look at Pennywise's "friendly" guise from the new It reboot

22 September 2016 1:39 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm actually excited about the It reboot. Don't get me wrong, Tim Curry fucking killed it as Pennywise in the original adaptation of Stephen King's novel, but after revisiting it recently, the rest doesn't quite hold up. Not a terrible movie by any stretch (and again, Curry is great, as always), but it's definitely not... Read More »

The It remake/re-adaptation has officially completed filming, and producer Barbara Muschietti (sister of director Andres Muschietti) announced the news via Instagram along with, appropriately, a very creepy jack-in-the-box styled after Pennywise, the murderous clown who terrorizes the children (and later adults) of Derry, Maine:   And yes, it's a wrap on #itthemovie. Thank you amazing cast and crew for this magical journey. And thank you #stephenking for giving us this tale.

The strange prehistory of 1995's Congo

9 September 2016 9:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Sep 12, 2016

It was a camp classic in 1995, but did you know Congo was once going to be made in the early 80s with a real gorilla and Sean Connery?

"Congo is a dead project that will never be made" - Michael Crichton, 1983

Just about everywhere you looked in the summer of 1995, a pair of simian eyes stared back at you from the poster of Congo. Based on the best-selling Michael Crichton novel, Congo was billed as that year’s equivalent of Jurassic Park - another exciting creature feature with cutting-edge special effects and maybe just a tiny dash of horror.

“It’s a little like Alien at the beginning,” enthused director Frank Marshall, “in that it’s based in science fact, and like Indiana Jones at the end, with the lost city of Zinj.”

11 Iconic 80s Movies That Don't Hold Up

8 September 2016 7:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As much as people in my forty-plus age group love to wax rhapsodic about the good ole days, what we really mean to say is that the 1980s was our time and it was the best time ever. But was it really? Well, for all the good things that happened (metal videos, big hair, personal computers), there were certainly a lot of bad (Reaganomics, neon, the Iran Contra scandal).

For a lot of us, we like to canonize 80s movies. We like to look at these pieces of cinematic richness as being the standard bearers for the films that came later. And when you consider that a lot of films that are released today are either inspired by movies from the 1980s or trying to capture that special 80s feeling, it's easy to look at this time in film history with rose colored glasses.

However, if we can be quite honest, »

Scary Clown Sightings Increase, Is This a Viral Stunt for It?

7 September 2016 6:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Horror movies often try to get creative with their viral marketing campaigns, but a new rumor suggests that the upcoming It remake may be taking things a bit too far. The movie, of course, centers on, Pennywise, one of the most terrifying clowns to ever be introduced into pop culture, so it makes sense that creepy clowns would be used in the marketing. But having people dress up like clowns and try and scare kids at parks, trying to lure them into the woods? That might be a bit much, but it also might be something that is really happening.

Recently there have been reports of people dressed as clowns showing up near parks and apartment complexes in North and South Carolina. According to the reports, men dressed in clown costumes have been spotted in the woods, but they haven't been doing anything illegal, just being super creepy. A new »

Steven King’s ‘It’ Come to Life? Clown Reportedly Trying to Lure Kids Into the Woods (Video)

6 September 2016 10:24 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Residents of a Winston-Salem, North Carolina, neighborhood are keeping a careful eye on their kids this week after police responded to a report of a clown trying to lure kids into the woods with “treats.” Two children and an adult said they witnessed a creepy incident that immediately brings to mind Stephen King‘s “It,” a horror novel adapted into a TV movie that starred Tim Curry as the killer clown Pennywise. New Line Cinema is in the process of producing a new adaptation starring Finn Wolfhard (“Stranger Things”) as the villain. Andrés Muschietti is directing the 2017 release.

5 Reasons the Remake of Stephen King's It Will Be Scarier This Time Around

18 August 2016 5:45 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

The It remake is coming. We might only have a few spare details about the film and it might be over a year away, but somewhere off in the distance, Pennywise the Clown lurks. Between the literary masterpiece that Stephen King published in 1986 and the miniseries adaptation from 1990, the It remake has a lot stacked against it. Even so, it's got a few advantages on its side. How will the newest iteration align with the original book? How will it stack up to the original and the indomitable Tim Curry? We've compiled a short list of reasons it could really do both justice - and even become one of the most chilling horror movies of 2017. The updated Pennywise is creepier than ever. In August, Entertainment Weekly gave us a full look at the new Pennywise. He's obscured by shadow and looks like a darker, more sinister version of the demonic clown. »

‘Clue’ Remake From Hasbro Lands at Fox

17 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Fox has come on board Hasbro Studios’ “Clue” movie, five years after the board game-based project was ditched at Universal.

Josh Feldman, the head of Hasbro’s TV and film division, is producing for Hasbro Studios. Daria Cercek is overseeing for Fox.

Hasbro launched development of a “Clue” movie in 2008 as part of a six-year partnership with Universal to produce at least four feature films based on branded properties: Clue, Monopoly, Candyland, Ouija, Battleship, Magic: The Gathering and Stretch Armstrong.

“Battleship” was a costly money-loser for the studio in 2012 while “Ouija” grossed $103 million on a $5 million budget and generated a sequel “Ouija: Origin of Evil” that’s due out Oct. 21. At the time that Universal dropped the “Clue” project, “Pirates of the Caribbean” director Gore Verbinski was attached to direct and produce, but is no longer part of the project at Fox.

Hasbro’s seen its greatest success in Hollywood with “Ouija, »

Clue Remake Finally Moves Forward at 20th Century Fox

17 August 2016 9:54 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2011, Universal Pictures dropped their long-gestating remake of the 1985 board game adaptation Clue, but we never heard any updates on the project since then. At the time, Gore Verbinski was attached to direct, but the project never found a new home. Until now. 20th Century Fox is joining forces with Hasbro Studios to bring this project back to life!

The Tracking Board reports that Josh Feldman is set to produce through Hasbro Studios, with Ryan Jones overseeing the project for Hasbro and Daria Cercek overseeing the project for 20th Century Fox. When Universal was developing the project, the studio was working from a script by Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Gods of Egypt). It isn't know if the writers or director Gore Verbinski are still involved at this point.

This report reveals that 20th Century Fox is seeking to expand the scope of this movie remake, which seems »

Clue is getting a remake

16 August 2016 9:56 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Aug 17, 2016

A second movie based on the boardgame Cluedo is on the way…

The 1985 movie adaptation of the game Cluedo – which went by the its American title of Clue – was one of those films infamous for failing to set the box office alight on its original release, but went on to find a sizeable audience afterwards. That’s not a surprise, either: Jonathan Lynn’s movie remains a real treat, with a cast led by the peerless Tim Curry.

Still, it’s remake time. 20th Century Fox has picked up the rights to make further films based on Cluedo, and it has a new movie on the way. Josh Feldman is producing, and the plan this time is tell the story of a ‘worldwide mystery’, this time with ‘action-adventure elements’. Furthermore, if all goes to plan, then expect an ongoing franchise of films.

There had been earlier plans for a new Cluedo movie, »

‘Clue’ Remake in the Works, Which Was Probably Inevitable When You Really Think About It

16 August 2016 4:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If you count “Battleship” among your favorite movies of the last few years and are inordinately excited for the upcoming “Ouija” sequel, prepare for good news. The Tracking Board is reporting that 20th Century Fox is remaking “Clue” along with Hasbro, most likely to the dismay of fans of the 1985 adaptation — a cult classic that, whatever its flaws, was certainly ahead of the board-game-adaptation curve.

Josh Feldman will produce from Hasbro’s end, with Daria Cercek of Fox also onboard; Ryan Jones is serving as executive producer.

The new Pennywise's costume is bold, creepy...and a little baffling

16 August 2016 4:15 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When I first saw the new Pennywise's clown costume, I was a little taken aback. Is that a dress? Is Pennywise starring in the new Jane Austen mashup? Behold! #Pennywise the Clown's eerie costume from @StephenKing's 'It' is Here! https://t.co/e1st7ljUAe #ITmovie ???? pic.twitter.com/zHefjxj4TJ — Entertainment Weekly (@EW) August 16, 2016 When viewed in its full measure, the costume turned out to be far more multi-dimensional than it initially appeared, though it's still a little disconcerting; there are lot of frills and ruffles and puffy things there that evoke distinct periods from English history, and it's a drastically different look from the one sported by Tim Curry when he played the character in 1990. I'm still processing this, but costume designer Janie Bryant provides a pretty detailed explanation for the different facets of the look over at EW, which at least offers some context: “The costume definitely »

Pennywise the Clown Fully Revealed in Stephen King's It

16 August 2016 11:08 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, fans got their first look at Pennywise the Clown (Bill Skarsgard) in New Line Cinema's highly-anticipated It remake. We also got our first look at one of the Loser's Club members, Finn Wolfhard as Richie Tozier, through new set photos released by director Andy Muschietti yesterday. As filming continues, towards its September 8, 2017 release date, we have a new photo featuring the full Pennywise costume, along with new details from costume designer Janie Bryant.

Entertainment Weekly debuted this new photo of Bill Skarsgard in full costume, which is quite different from the colorful clown outfit Tim Curry wore in the 1990 miniseries. Janie Bryant, who has won Emmy's for her costume work on Deadwood and Mad Men designed a suit that features influences from Medieval, Renaissance, Elizabethan and Victorian eras. Here's what she had to say below.

"The costume definitely incorporates all these otherworldly past lives, if you will. »

Check Out It's New Pennywise In Full Costume

16 August 2016 11:07 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Tim Curry may haunted your nightmares as Pennywise the Clown when you were younger, but Bill Skarsgard is looking to take over when Andy Muschietti's take on Stephen King's It hits our screens next year. EW have our first full look at Pennywise in full costume and, boy, is it terrifying in a much more in your face way than Curry's take on Pennywise. The publication also talked to Emmy award winning costume Janie Bryant (Mad Men) who shed some light on the reasoning behind the new costume: He is definitely a clown from a different time. There is almost a doll-like quality to the costume. The pants being short, the high waistline of the jacket, and the fit of the costume is a very important element. It gives the character a child-like quality. With the story split across two movies, It Part 1 is set for release September 8th 2017. »
