10 September 2014 12:38 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“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. »

First Photos from The Town That Dreaded Sundown

3 September 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The folks living in a small Texas town thought the Phantom Killer behind the Moonlight Murders of 1946 was confined to the silver screen, via the 1976 film based on the real-life slayings, titled The Town That Dreaded Sundown. But a new copycat murderer has emerged in a meta-horror remake, and the film’s first photos show the new threat wearing a wardrobe similar to the original Phantom Killer.

The Town That Dreaded Sundown remake is making its world premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on October 14th. Here’s the film’s latest synopsis (via BFI London Film Festival):

“Set in a world in which the original film exists and is very much part of popular consciousness, this update sees the quiet streets of Texerkana plagued by a maniac who bears striking resemblance to the same Phantom Killer who wreaked havoc on the town decades before. Is history repeating itself? »

Set for an October 7th release, the Alien: 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Blu-ray features the theatrical cut and the director’s cut, as well as a digital copy and some meticulously detailed cover art that makes it difficult to tell where a spacesuit-clad Ridley begins and where the Alien ends.

Sigourney Weaver: Role in the new 'Alien' game is 'incredibly cool'

24 July 2014 7:01 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sega’s forthcoming Alien: Isolation tells an original story about Amanda Ripley (briefly mentioned in Aliens) set 15 years after the first film. But Amanda is about to be overshadowed by her very famous mother: Sigourney Weaver will play Ellen Ripley for the first time since 1997’s Alien: Resurrection—albeit in digital form—in two pieces of downloadable content for the game.

“For us to have Sigourney Weaver reprise her role for the first time in videogames is something truly special,” says creative lead Alistair Hope.

“Crew Expendable” is free with preorders of Alien: Isolation, and it reunites Weaver with Alien costars Tom Skerritt, »

Human vs. Alien Films: The Must-Sees

12 July 2014 7:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Humankind’s collision with otherworldly life forms can make for unforgettable cinema.

This article will highlight the best of live-action human vs. alien films.  The creatures may be from other planets or may be non-demonic entities from other dimensions.

Excluded from consideration were giant monster films as the diakaiju genre would make a great subject for separate articles.

Readers looking for “friendly alien” films such as The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), It Came from Outer Space (1953) and the comically overrated Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) are advised to keep watching the skies because they won’t find them here.

Film writing being the game of knowledge filtered through personal taste that it is, some readers’ subgenre favorites might not have made the list such as War of the Worlds (1953) and 20 Million Miles to Earth (1957).

Now let’s take a chronological look at the cinema’s best battles between Us and Them. »

Alien: Isolation’s Ripley Dlc Will Be Available To All At “A Later Date”

11 July 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Creative Assembly has addressed concerns over the recently-unveiled Dlc for Alien: Isolation — entitled the Nostromo Edition — which was originally exclusive to those who pre-order the game. However, in response to fan feedback, the studio has announced that the extra content will be available to all users “at a later date.”

In an official statement, Sega was quick to taper the community backlash:

“Some of you have been asking if the two pieces of content are only available through pre-order or if we’ll be releasing them at a later date as well. So, I can confirm today that we do plan to release both Crew Expendable and Last Survivor at a later date and we’ll have more details for you guys on that shortly.”

Essentially, the expansion — or Crew Expendable — reunites the ragtag crew of Ridley Scott’s seminal 1979 film — including Tom Skerritt, Veronica Cartwright and of course, »
