Wes Craven’s New Nightmare

28 August 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

The title alone signifies how closely aligned the director was to his franchise and Wes Craven makes the most of it with this meta-spin on his Nightmare on Elm Street series. In a clever twist, this time out dreams aren’t responsible for summoning the dread specter of serial killer Freddy Krueger, it’s the movies themselves. Upping the ante on Craven’s feature-length mind game, Heather Langenkamp, who played the damsel in distress in the original Nightmare, appears as herself, still in the grip of the monster who helped make her a star.

First Look at New Pinhead in Hellraiser: Judgment

26 July 2016 6:14 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Next year will mark the 30th Anniversary of the original Hellraiser, director Clive Barker's scary classic that is still beloved by horror fans to this date. Nine sequels were spawned off of this original classic, but the franchise hasn't seen its best days, with the last installment, Hellraiser: Revelations, going straight to DVD in 2011, believed to be shot only so The Weinstein Company could keep the rights to the name. Next year, the series will scream back to life once again with Hellraiser: Judgment. Today we have a new photo from this thriller, featuring Pinhead (Paul T. Taylor) and the new villain known as The Auditor.

Bloody-Disgusting has this first look at The Auditor, although we don't know who is playing this character quite yet. The Auditor was described in a casting call as "the accountant from hell," who comes to Earth to study a persons sins, "before passing »

New Cenobites Revealed in Hellraiser: Judgment

21 July 2016 10:48 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New Cenobites will rise in the next chapter in the horror saga Hellraiser: Judgment. Today, we have a look at two of these monstrous beings from Hell. Meet The Butcher and The Surgeon! They're definitely enough to give you nightmares. Jillyan Blundell is the one hiding under the Surgeon's mask, while Joel Decker carries the weight of The Butcher.

These latest images arrive courtesy of TwoHoursintheDark. Writer/director Gary Tunnicliffe is in post-production on Judgment. It is being called his personal take on the Hellraiser series, and as such, stands slightly outside of the franchise. Apparently, a complete reboot of the series is also on the way soon, with original creator Clive Barker involved.

This next sequel stars horror icon and Nightmare on Elm Sreet alum Heather Langenkamp, who is famous for playing Freddy Krueger's most infamous nemesis ever, Nancy. She appears in an ensemble cast that also includes Damon Carney, »

Check out two new Cenobites from Hellraiser: Judgment

20 July 2016 3:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Longtime Hellraiser make-up artist Gary J. Tunnicliffe has stepped into the director’s chair for Hellraiser: Judgement, the tenth instalment of the long-running horror franchise, and with the film currently in post-production he’s shared a couple of images, giving us a look at two of the new Cenobites – The Butcher and The Surgeon; check them out here…

“I promise you a horror film that will have moments unlike any other you have ever seen,” writes Tunnicliffe on his site. “Dimension films have been incredibly generous and shown an enormous amount of faith in letting me write and direct Hellraiser: Judgment, a film that is not just the simple recycling of the Hellraiser formula; a film that will boast some of the strangest, most bizarre, horrific and thought provoking sequences ever seen in the horror genre. I know you’ve been let down, »

FrightFest Presents Review – Last Girl Standing (2015)

4 July 2016 12:42 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last Girl Standing, 2015.

Directed by Benjamin R. Moody.

Starring Akasha Villalobos, Danielle Evon Ploeger, Brian Villalobos, Jason Vines, Laura Ray, Ryan Hamilton and Kelsey Pribilski.

Synopsis:

So what does happen to the final girl once the chase is over? She doesn’t live happily ever after apparently…

 

Have you ever wondered what really happens to the final girl in the gruesome world of slasher movies? Some make it into the sequel and get killed off within the first 10 minutes as a new bunch of debauched teens becomes the focus of whichever franchise killer is the current pop culture icon but, for the purposes of this film at least, let us assume that there are no sequels and that the final survivor must continue their life with the weight of what they have been through resting on their shoulders. That is where Last Girl Standing begins.

The film opens where most slashers end, »

The original Freddy Krueger knows where the 'Nightmare on Elm Street' remake went wrong

2 June 2016 3:48 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Samuel Bayer's 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was widely reviled by both critics and fans, with a 15% average on Rotten Tomatoes and a 5.2/10 user rating on IMDb (by comparison, Wes Craven's original boasts a 7.5/10). Now, Robert Englund -- whose iconic performance as Freddy Krueger was reinterpreted by a cat-faced Jackie Earle Haley in the remake -- is diagnosing what went wrong with the updated version. In a nutshell: the film's nubile victims weren't carefree enough at the beginning of the film for audiences to invest in their eventual downfall. “You don’t ever see any of the people happy go-lucky, they’re never untainted,” said Englund during an appearance at the Film & Comic Con in Belfast, Ireland (via Bloody Disgusting). “You need to see before and after so you can invest emotionally with the children. They’re practically zombies from the get-go because they’re haunted »

Rare Nightmare on Elm Street Deleted Scene Reveals a Big Secret

25 April 2016 3:52 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Three years ago, Warner Home Video released A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection on Blu-ray. This set contained all seven movies in the hit horror franchise, along with most of the bonus features that have been compiled from the various home video releases over the years. However, that collection missed a few bonus features that were originally put together for an obscure Laserdisc release, which includes a deleted scene that drops quite a big bombshell.

This deleted scene, which was posted on YouTube more than six years ago but has just started making the rounds today, features Marge Thompson (Ronee Blakley) explaining who Freddy Krueger really was, to her daughter Nancy (Heather Langenkamp). Most of this footage was included in the original theatrical cut, where Nancy explains how Fred was released on a technicality, which lead to several parents taking matters into their own hands by killing Krueger themselves.

Casting Nancy Kerrigan

24 March 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Kieran, here. It was announced earlier this week that Margot Robbie would be playing figure skater turned tabloid fodder Tonya Harding in a biopic titled I, Tonya. On a personal note, I distinctly remember my mother voicing her distaste about Harding being on the cover of nearly a dozen tabloid magazines in my pediatrician’s office when I was a kid. It was everywhere and given how ubiquitous the story became, it’s kind of surprising that it’s taken this long for it to get the cinematic treatment. Well…the earnest, theatrical cinematic treatment. There was a hastily assembled television movie which aired in April of 1994 (the Harding scandal was at the 1994 Winter Olympics). It features Heather Langenkamp (yes, Nancy from A Nightmare on Elm Street) as Nancy Kerrigan, just in case you were wondering.

A director has yet to be attached to the project or even named to be in consideration, »

Daria Nicolodi, Unsung Hero of Italian Horror

23 March 2016 1:53 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

For as much criticism as the horror genre receives for being sexist and misogynistic, it has a long history of strong characters and iconic performances from women, whether it’s Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein, Heather Langenkamp in A Nightmare on Elm Street, Janet Leigh in Psycho, or Sharni Vinson in You’re Next. In the late 1970s and ’80s, actresses who stood out within the genre were dubbed “Scream Queens.” But that title doesn’t do justice to Daria Nicolodi, frequent collaborator of Dario Argento and a titan of Italian horror. That’s because Daria Nicolodi is no Scream Queen. Daria Nicolodi is a goddamn goddess.

A too often unsung hero of genre cinema, Daria Nicolodi helped shape the face of Italian horror both in front of and behind the camera. The story goes that Florence-born Nicolodi was so taken with Argento’s first film, The Bird With the Crystal Plumage, »

15 March 2016 2:33 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Bloody Disgusting has revealed the first look at the brand new Pinhead from the latest entry into the horror franchise Hellraiser, entitled Hellraiser: Judgment.

Actor Paul T. Taylor (Sin City) is the new man under the make-up for the film, taking over from original Pinhead Doug Bradley, who played the character in the original 1987 film from Clive Barker and in it’s seven sequels.

“Detectives Sean and David Carter are on the case to find a gruesome serial killer terrorizing the city. Joining forces with Detective Christine Egerton, they dig deeper into a spiraling maze of horror that may not be of this world. Could the Judgment awaiting the killer’s victims also be waiting for Sean?”

Directed by special effects wiz Gary J. Tunnicliffe (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Olympus Has Fallen), the film also features A Nightmare on Elm Street star Heather Langenkamp. »

New Pinhead Revealed in 'Hellraiser: Judgment'

14 March 2016 11:42 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

He's back! But he's not exactly the same Cenobite we remember from the original 1987 horror classic Hellraiser. Doug Bradley opted out of returning for Hellraiser: Judgment, the tenth movie in this long running franchise. Taking over the role of Pinhead is Paul T. Taylor. And as you can see in the poster below, he looks pretty great.

It was announced last month that special effects maestro Gary J. Tunnicliffe would be making his directorial debut with Hellraiser: Judgment. With shooting taking place just earlier this year, the man is already in post-production. And has provided Bloody Disgusting with this exclusive first look at the movie.

Heather Langenkamp, who plays the iconic Nancy in the original A Nightmare on Elm Street, dropped the news that this sequel was happening. She is joined in the ensemble cast by another horror veteran, John Gulager, as well as Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, »

After three days of celebs, slashers, and screenings, the Silver Scream Fest went out with a flourish today in Santa Rosa, Calif. The three-day film festival saw luminaries like Freddy Krueger’s own Robert Englund, director John Landis, seven-time makeup-effects Oscar winner Rick Baker, ambidextrous artist Rob Prior, and Elm Street heroine Heather Langenkamp, among others, come to meet fans and talk about their contributions to horror cinema.

There were screenings of some of the best independent scary cinema out there, in addition to screenings of contemporary classics like A Nightmare On Elm Street, New Nightmare, An American Werewolf In London (on its 35th anniversary), and Santa Sangre alongside classics from the Golden Age of Hollywood like Dracula (On its 85th anniversary! Seems like just yesterday….), Island Of Lost Souls, and White Zombie.

Silver Scream Fest: Interview With Heather Langenkamp

5 March 2016 5:49 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

A Nightmare On Elm Street heroine Heather Langenkamp took to the stage today to give us insight into the Elm Street legacy, her documentary I Am Nancy, and what contemporary character she thinks is a modern-day Nancy Thompson.

Moderated by FM executive editor David Weiner, Langenkamp told the crowded theater of film lovers what sparked her desire to produce the documentary, I Am Nancy, which puts the spotlight on her Elm Street character. She called director Wes Craven and his assistant didn’t know who she was. It didn’t strike her as noteworthy until later, and it was her sister-in-law who was particularly irked, asking why Nancy wasn’t the focus of the adulation instead of Freddy Krueger. Langenkamp didn’t know. She told her, “It’s just the way it is. It’s Freddy mania. Not Nancy mania.”

Landing the gig, she recalls that “I probably didn’t »

Silver Scream Fest: An all-star tribute to Wes Craven

4 March 2016 9:15 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

Robert Englund, Heather Langenkamp, and producer Marianne Maddalena graced the stage of our Silver Scream Fest in Santa Rosa, Calif., to pay tribute to Wes Craven, the filmmaker who changed all their lives and the face of horror cinema. The three had a comfortable rapport, having known each other for decades at this point.

When asked by moderator Neil Pearlmutter who the real Craven was, Englund graciously deferred to Maddalena, because, while he and Langenkamp had worked with him as actors on several projects, Maddalena had been his right-hand man for years. Maddalena said that when she interviewed to be his assistant, “I told him I wanted to be a producer. He did everything he could and two years later, I was a producer on a film called Shocker.”

She then related an anecdote that illustrated his sense of humor. He loaned her a screener of What’S Eating Gilbert Grape? »
