Pumpkinhead Being Resurrected as a Reboot

3 April 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Around these parts we're Huge fans of the Pumpkinhead creature, but judging from a cinematic standpoint, this big bad has gotten one raw deal after another. The original film was great, and its sequels got progressively more horrid one after the other.

Could this franchise get back on track? It sure couldn't do any worse!

The original Pumpkinhead was produced by the De Laurentiis Entertainment Group, headed up by Italian producer Dino De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis went on to produce Hannibal and Red Dragon.

For the rest of the franchise, the Motion Picture Corporation of America (Mpca) headed up by Brad Krevoy took the reins and is now back to produce the rebooted series.

The ’88 film starred Lance Henriksen as a man who conjures up a gigantic vengeance demon called Pumpkinhead to destroy the teenagers who accidentally killed his son.

While Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings is indeed bad, it's watchable »

Monsterpalooza attendees lined up on a Saturday morning, well before the event's doors opened, to get their first look at footage from Harbinger Down.

Knights of Badassdom Release Has Us Reminiscing about Unexpected Conjurings

31 March 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There's nothing worse than finding a cool book or scroll or other form of communique containing a bunch of mysterious incantations. It's always a kick in the ass when you unsuspectingly read one of them aloud, and next thing you know... bad things start happening. Bad things, man.

Such is the case for our heroes in the upcoming film Knights of Badassdom. One little thing goes wrong, and the next thing you know our crew (played by Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten) are fighting for their lives against the forces of evil.

This got us thinking back to some other unfortunate souls who did the same thing and found themselves with their asses in a sling when accidentally bringing something to our world from another realm. I can't even get the cable guy to come out to make a service call when I need him, and these guys are conjuring demons from beyond? »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Play an Aging T-800 in 'Terminator: Genesis'

25 March 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for this weekend's action-thriller Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger offered new details about Terminator: Genesis in an interview with MTV, revealing that there will be a younger T-800 model, and that these Terminators actually "age" in this franchise.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning as the T-800 in a sequel that is being described as a reboot, despite being 66-years-old. How is this possible? Since the actor was in his 30s at the time of the original and its sequel, the action icon explains that the skin of the cyborg ages just like a human being.

"Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800, and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets a hold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good.

The Most Insane Bigfoot & Yeti Movies Ever Made

24 March 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Considering they're the best-known cryptids in history, the humanoids known variously as Sasquatch, Bigfoot, Yeti, the Abominable Snowman and so forth don't get much respect in modern cinema. While thousands of hours of film and video have been dedicated to these elusive man-beasts, there's something about the big dude that makes it nearly impossible for filmmakers to take him seriously, or even tell a semi-competent story about him. It's certainly not for a lack of trying; there have been nearly a hundred Bigfoot and Yeti movies released since the '50s. Old-fashioned giant monster romps, found-footage and slasher entries, feel-good family dramas, romantic comedies... even porno flicks. So why are nearly all of them so damn goofy?   Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy these insane interpretations; in fact, the crazier they get, the more I dig 'em. So to honor this dubious cinematic legacy, here are two dozen of »

The Insanely Creative Killers of NBC’s ‘Hannibal’

20 March 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

With True Detective now off the air, I feel pretty confident in saying that NBC’s Hannibal has regained its rightful throne as the best show on television, at the present time. I love The Walking Dead just as much, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just something so captivating and mesmerizing about Hannibal, which makes it stick out in my mind as one of the very best TV shows I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching.

Cannot. Get. Enough.

In addition to incredible acting, an enthralling storyline and stunning visuals aplenty, one of the truly impressive things about the show is the ability of the writers to consistently dream up some of the most creative killers in the history of morbid entertainment, who our old pal Hannibal is oftentimes helping the FBI to track down.

So creative are those killers, and their clever methods of murder, »

Avp: Alien Vs Predator

14 March 2014 4:02 AM, PDT | Sky Movies | See recent Sky Movies news »

It's the sci-fi smackdown of the century as the most formidable hunters in the universe take on the galaxy's nastiest xenomorphs in a ferocious battle for supremacy - and we're caught in the middle. After discovering a mysterious pyramid in the Antarctic, a dying billionaire (Lance Henriksen) and his crack team realise - rather belatedly - that it's an ancient training ground for extraterrestrial warriors. What's more, the Predators are using acid-dripping Aliens for prey. »

'Terminator: Genesis' Adds J.K. Simmons

13 March 2014 4:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

J.K. Simmons is in talks to join the cast of Paramount and Annapurna Pictures' Terminator: Genesis, in a role that is speculated to be Hal Vukovich, originally portrayed by Lance Henriksen in the original classic The Terminator.

While the character's identity has not been confirmed, J.K. Simmons is reportedly playing a "weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades." He has been following the case since 1984, the same year the original Terminator was set in.

Ain't It Cool News points out that neither Vukovich, nor his partner Ed Trexler (Paul Winfield) were confirmed to be killed on screen in the original movie, while the story from The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Terminator: Genesis will "thread together multiple ideas" from the previous movies.

Regardless of who he is playing, J.K. Simmons joins a cast that also includes Jason Clarke as John Connor, »

An Interview with Lance Henriksen Part 2: A Potter's Life

7 March 2014 1:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

In the second half of my interview with the amazing Lance Henriksen he spoke about pottery, Art, what is life, and women (see part 1 of the interview here). I didn't say much but merely hung on to the adventure of our conversation so that I didn't get lost.

Did you take time off from the pottery making because you didn't have the correct setup to create it?

That's right. When I'm not working, I need a studio. Now I have that and I'm working everyday down there. I was down there three-quarters of today. I have a love and respect of labor. I need labor. I can't live just in my brain. I have to labor. Something happens to me. I feel really good.

The accomplishment? The satisfaction of completing something?

That's to put it mildly. There's a whole culture of potters in America that have been devastated or made. »

Exclusive Clip: Behind-the-Scenes of 'The Visitor' With Lance Henriksen

7 March 2014 | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

 

The Visitor is a classic 1979 sci-fi/horror/action flick that is getting a new release on blu-ray from Drafthouse Films and Cinedigm. In this exclusive clip from some of the new special features, Lance Henriksen talks about how he got the job, and being starstruck while working with John Huston.

John Huston plays an intergalactic warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. Multidimensional warfare, pre-adolescent profanity and brutal avian attacks combine to transport the viewer to a state unlike anything they’ve experienced – somewhere between hell, the darkest reaches of outer space and … Atlanta.

10 Celebrities You Forgot Were In Horror Films

6 March 2014 12:30 PM, PST | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

This upcoming month, there are two interesting genre titles playing on Fearnet that you should take note of; 'Eden Lake' and 'Dahmer.' Why? Because they both represent early movies for actors that have proved to be outstanding performers in the arts long before they honed their craft. In the case of 'Eden Lake,' the film is fronted by Michael Fassbender, long before he played Magneto in the 'X-Men' films, stole the show in Quentin Tarantino's 'Inglourious Basterds' & played the android David from 'Prometheus' with such cold, calculated perfection. Also, you can catch 'Dahmer,' the bio pic from director David Jacobson, which stars Jeremy Renner in one of his first cinematic lead roles. Now he's an Avenger in the Marvel Universe! So it got me thinking about other examples of successful stars you may have totally forgotten were in genre films. »

Exclusive: 4-Minute Clip From Restored 1979 Cult Sci-Fi/Horror 'The Visitor' Will Melt Your Mind

5 March 2014 8:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's the kind of thing that only the madcap movie world of the 1970s produced. Because what else could explain a sci-fi/horror movie that's led by John Huston—playing an intergalactic warrior!—and features Shelley Winters, Glenn FordLance Henriksen, Franco Nero and Sam Peckinpah? (Yes, that Sam Peckinpah). It's the stuff that cult movies are made of and that's just what happened, and now it's coming back to theaters thanks to the folks at Drafthouse Films. Giulio Paradisi's film is now hitting screens restored and presented uncut theatrically for the first time ever in the U.S., bringing the story of a space warrior who joins a cosmic Christ figure in battle against a demonic 8-year-old girl, and her pet hawk, while the fate of the universe hangs in the balance. And yes, the film is as awesomely bonkers as that sounds, with lots of psychedelic imagery, »

Movie History Lesson: How Jean-Claude Van Damme and John Woo Collided to Make 'Hard Target'

4 March 2014 5:00 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Jean-Claude Van Damme movies aren't exactly known for their subtlety. Even still, we're a little surprised at just how unnecessarily over the top filming was for a simple motorcycle ride in 1993's Hard Target. But once you learn a bit of the backstory behind the action classic, it all makes sense. Directed by John Woo, Hard Target starred the muscles from Brussels as a drifter who helps a pretty woman search for her missing father, only to discover he's been killed by a rich maniac (Lance Henriksen) who hunts homeless people for fun. Then things get weird. It's a cool, sweaty action movie with stunts as elaborate and groovy as Jcvd's mullet. It was Woo's first Hollywood movie after a handful of hits in Hong Kong, and as you can see in the below clip...

The Best Blu-ray/DVDs of the Week: ‘The Visitor,’ ’12 Years a Slave,’ and ‘The Grandmaster’

4 March 2014 10:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Welcome back to This Week In Discs! If you see something you like, click on the title to buy it from Amazon. The Visitor John Huston and Jesus Christ (Franco Nero) are in a never-ending war with Satan, and their latest battleground is Atlanta, Ga, where the soul of a child holds the key to saving the universe. Probably. Lance Henriksen, Glenn Ford, Shelley Winters, and Sam Peckinpah join in the fun as Huston struggles to stop the girl’s descent into evil and tendency towards causing bodily harm. It’s hardly news to say that this thirty four year old movie is a mental fingerbang that bends genres and somehow teases both brilliance and stupidity, but I’m saying it anyway. Both highly derivative and wholly original, the film cherry picks elements from The Omen, The Fury, Phantasm, and more, and then swirls them together in a psychedelic mélange of horror, sci-fi »

Synopsis

Incredibly ambitious but derided and largely neglected upon its initial release in 1979, The Visitor is an unforgettable assault on reality, a phantasmagoric sci-fi/horror/action hybrid. From writer-producer Ovidio G. Assonitis (Tentacles) and director/actor/body builder Michael J. Paradise (aka Giulio Paradisi - Fellini's 8½), the film artfully fuses »
