3 December 2014 1:13 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Exclusive: UK distributor picks up The Town That Dreaded Sundown, finalises slate.

UK distributor Metrodome has finalised its release slate for the first half of 2015 with the acquisition of Jason Blum (Sinister) and Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story)-produced horror The Town That Dreaded Sundown, which is set for release next April.

Alfonso Gomez Rejon (American Horror Story) directs the remake of the seventies horror about the unsolved Moonlight Murders of 1946 that took place in the American border town of Texarkana.

The film stars Addison Timlin, Travis Tope, Gary Cole, Joshua Leonard, Anthony Anderson, Denis O’Hare, Edward Herrmann and Veronica Cartwright.

Metrodome’s Jezz Vernon said: “We were huge fans of the original film but the reboot is an altogether rarer beast – whip smart, terrifying and hugely cinematic. Jason and Ryan came together as huge fans of the original and have produced a truly inspired vision for a return to Texarkana”.

Metrodome has now finalised its theatrical »

Darkroom

Showcase Inventory

Created by Peter S. Fischer

Produced by Universal TV

Aired on ABC for 1 season (7 episodes; 16 segments) from November 27, 1981 – January 15, 1982

Cast

James Coburn as the Host

Show Premise

Darkroom was a thriller anthology series, much in the vein of Night Gallery, where each story had an image to present before it began. The series was hosted by James Coburn, who introduced each story segment as a photographer in his darkroom, developing photographs and tales. The innovative aspect of this particular anthology series was that the story segments had free range to be as long or as short as the story needed to be, as long as the segments fit within the hour duration. Most episodes contained two stories, but at times there were three.

The tone of the stories presented on the series were mostly frightful tales, with grim twist endings that were enhanced with dark humor. The »

Amazon Drops First Trailer For Cop Drama Series Bosch

10 November 2014 12:57 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix might be the world’s biggest streaming giant, with a handful of highly successful original series to its name, but the world’s biggest marketplace, Amazon, is making a play for the title. Amazon Studios has been steadily building its unique catalogue with recent hits such as Transparent and Alpha House. While their output has yet to harness the hysterical levels of interest that surrounds ‘Flix’s Orange Is The New Black, their next offering – Bosch – just might.

Based on the best-selling novel series by author Michael Connelly, the show stars Titus Welliver (TV’s Lost, The Town) as Lapd homicide detective Harry Bosch, who operates in and around the Hollywood division. For the first season’s storyline Bosch undergoes a federal trial for the murder of a serial killer while trying to solve the murder of a 13-year old boy.

Kingdom Of Heaven Ultimate Edition and Alien 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray Reviews

9 November 2014 5:23 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released two of Ridley Scott’s best films in new special editions.  Those films are Alien and Kingdom of Heaven.  One of these editions offers supplements and commentaries never before put to Blu-ray, while the other is a repackaged version of previous editions, where the only new element are some collectables.  My review of both follows after the jump.  Alien is the one that’s basically repackaged, as it’s simply the first disc from the Alien Anthology box set, with all of the same content of previous Blu-ray releases.  The film stars Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, who – along with Tom Skerrit, Yaphet Kotto, Veronica Cartwright, John Hurt, Ian Holm, Harry Dean Stanton and a cat – are on a space ship and are woken up from hypersleep to explore a crashed alien ship on a nearby planet.  They investigate, only for an alien life form to »

In 1946, the American town of Texarkana was rocked by a series of murders. Dubbed “The Moonlight Murders” by the press, these were real, tragic events that scarred the town. In 1976, Charles B. Pierce directed The Town That Dreaded Sundown, a film “based on true events” depicting the events of the killing spree thirty years earlier. There’s an ongoing tradition in Texarkana to show a drive-in screening of the film on Halloween every year.

And now in 2014, American Horror Story‘s Alfonso Gomez-Rejon has created a new version of Town that finds itself with a unique premise. Acknowledging that both the 1946 murders took place, and that the 1976 film was released, »

“Before that summer, everybody would leave their doors unlocked. And after the summer, you saw a stranger, you’d run the other way. And now… he’s back.” The Phantom Killer changed the way of life in a small Texas town 66 years ago with a string of Moonlight Murders, and a modern-day copycat killer has emerged in the trailer for Blumhouse’s meta-horror remake of The Town That Dreaded Sundown.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown will play at the BFI London Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, and Beyond Fest before coming out on October 16th. We have the film’s first official trailer and poster below: (a big thanks to Shock Till You Drop for the poster image!)

New Images From The Town That Dreaded Sundown

4 September 2014 6:49 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions has been ridiculously busy of late, so much so that it’s almost impossible to keep track of all its upcoming projects. And you’ll be forgiven if Blumhouse’s take on The Town that Dreaded Sundown slipped through the cracks for you – the horror redo has been flying very much under the radar. That’s changing today, however, with the unveiling of two official images from the flick.

Alfonso Gomez-Rejon (American Horror Story) makes his directorial debut on the movie, a “reinvention” of the 1976 independent horror cult film. The Town that Dreaded Sundown isn’t a remake in the traditional sense – it’s set in a world in which the original film exists and is on the minds of townspeople in Texarkana. This time around, a maniac who bears a striking resemblance to the figure from the 1976 film is slaughtering people on the town’s streets. »
