'Willow 2' May Happen Says Director Ron Howard

7 December 2015 8:31 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 1988, Ron Howard was still much more well-known as an actor than he was a director, from iconic roles in Green Acres, The Andy Griffith Show, Happy Days and American Graffiti. The actor/filmmaker had directed hit comedies such as Night Shift, Splash, Cocoon and Gung Ho before he delved into the world of fantasy filmmaking with the iconic Willow. During a Ama session to promote his new film In the Heart of the Sea, in theaters this weekend, the filmmaker was asked if he would ever consider making a sequel to Willow. Here's what the director had to say.

"Right now, the Lucasfilm team led by Kathleen Kennedy, who is an old dear friend, is entirely myopically focused on the Star Wars universe as you can imagine. So I think the immediate possibility of another Willow movie is probably not on the front burner. But Warwick Davis is such a cool guy, »

Bluray Review: Troll/Troll 2/Best Worst Movie

17 November 2015 5:07 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Oh Scream Factory, how I love thee. Growing up, I was exposed to quite a few films that left a mark on me. Everything from Hellraiser and A Nightmare On Elm Street, to Charles Band’s Empire Pictures classics such as Eliminators, From Beyond and Prison. One of the films that fell into the Empire Pictures group was a silly and incredibly easy to love family horror film called Troll. Watching that film for the first time (after finally getting past the VHS cover art that scared the living crap out of me) was an experience I will never forget. Everything from that weird ass song to Sonny Bono’s portrayal of what is the most unappealing swinger of all time, the film just had me right away. It was my jam all throughout childhood, and though there have been DVD releases of the John Carl Buechler monster film, it »

Watch Your Toilets! Scream Factory Sending Ghoulies/Ghoulies II To Your Bluray Players This April!

4 March 2015 10:55 AM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

In the words of the great Samuel L. Jackson in Jurassic Park, “Hold onto your butts!“. Scream Factory previously announced that they were gearing up to release a one-two punch double feature of the always fun (and very traumatizing to my childhood) first two films in the Ghoulies series, Ghoulies and Ghoulies II this April 21st, in a brand new double feature Bluray debut. Personally, I love the series, and though it didn’t help my parents getting me to want to sit on the toilet much as a kid, there were plenty of trips to my local video store to pick both of these gems up.

The gang at Scream Factory have put together a good amount of brand new special features as well for this release, even interviews with executive producer Charles Band (who just happened to also direct one of my ten favorite films of all time, »
