The week before Halloween will see the commencement of principal photography on Edward Payson’s next project: Our Friend John – The Documentary.
Our Friend Jon, a collaboration between Payson’s prolific production company, An AntiHero Production, and Maria Olsen’s MOnsterworks66, will document the story of how three friends will produce and shoot the short film, Rose Thorn, written by Jonathan Hernandez. What makes this story special is that Jon passed away from complications due to Sickle Cell Anemia while writing the script, and what makes it particularly poignant is that Jon’s three friends, Nick Saporito, Brandon Joyal and Garrett Payson, all lead extremely challenging lives...
What will make this film appeal to horror fans worldwide is that Rose Thorn is a horror film...it was Jon’s wish to become a horror filmmaker, and, by shooting his film and documenting the process, his family and friends will both »
The folks at One Way Static Records must have chanted “Candyman” five times while looking in the mirror, because their latest release is the soundtrack to 1992’s Candyman, a film based on Clive Barker’s Books of Blood short story, “The Forbidden.” Making its vinyl debut, the eerie soundtrack by Philip Glass is available to pre-order, and we have song samples and a look at the gatefold and cassette cover art.
Press Release - “One Way Static Records is really proud to be bring you their latest release, A release where we had the chance to work with two icons in their own respective fields!

Tony Todd will probably always be Candyman to me. That was my onscreen introduction to him, and the one that I remember the most. The man has been working for some 30 years in the business, with a resume of work that's about 150 projects long, both on the big and small screens. But he's still Candyman to me. He's certainly busy - we could say one of those actors who works constantly, but rarely in roles that really put him in the spotlight. Looking at his IMDb page, he's booked for as many as 14 different film projects (mostly features), each already in some stage of production, scheduled to be released between 2014 and 2015. One of them, which caught my attention this »

Earlier tonight, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment held a panel and a world premiere screening for their upcoming animated adventure Batman: Assault on Arkham at Comic-Con. During the panel, the studio announced the new titles that will debut in 2015, Batman Vs. Robin and Justice League: Gods and Monsters.
Bruce W. Timm will return to direct Batman Vs. Robin, which will also feature the Court of Owls. While no story details were given, it's believed that this will be an origin story featuring Talon and the Court of Owls, possibly adapted straight from Scott Snyder's comic book. In Court of Owls, Batman and Robin don't actually square off against one another, although there is a bit of tension between the duo and Nightwing. It's believed that this may also be a completely original story based on those characters, but that has not been confirmed.
The Riddler (Matthew Gray Gubler) should have quit while he was ahead in the opening scene from Warner Bros.' Batman: Assault on Arkham, debuting on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD August 12. This clip features Edward Nygma trying to stump Amanda Waller (Cch Pounder) with a series of riddles, but the tables are quickly turned on him when he realizes it was all a setup.
For those who are making the journey to San Diego for this year's Comic-Con, we reported last week that Batman: Assault on Arkham will have its world premiere screening on Friday, July 25. In the meantime, take a look at how this animated adventure begins.

As a horror fan, what led me to the genre was how much of an escape from reality it was to me as a child. Like so many fans, it was that frightening yet fun escapism that helped take my mind off of any real horror that was going on back in my home life. So many people who were /are victims of abuse, self-esteem/self-image issues and various other mental health issues, are unable to get the mental help needed at times to overcome these horrible afflictions. So, with all of that being said, we at Icons of Fright could not possibly be more absolutely ecstatic about being able to help spread the word about one hell of a charity auction to help benefit Mental Fitness, Inc. a wonderful non-profit organization who has rounded an impressive array of items that they’re going to auction off to raise money for the cause. »

Part man part vengeful evil Tony Todd transformed a disconcerting concept into a paralyzing image of impending doom. When you call for the Candyman you call for absolute expiration. And he answers the call a willing harbinger of finality. Terrifying terrifying creation and a career defining performance from the amazing Tony Todd. The Candyman still terrifies 22 years after his official on screen introduction. »

Despite being fortunate enough to be raised on a healthy diet of horror, I can’t deny the fact I was born in 1990. I was born long after our most beloved genre actors got their start and made their mark in horror, and there are plenty of horror icons that I didn’t first see in their iconic roles. Tony Todd, Bruce Campbell, and Jamie Lee Curtis were three actors I was fortunate enough to see in their career changing roles. However, I know a good amount of horror icons from films they probably wish they could expunge from their resumes.
Horror Icon: Lance Henriksen
Role I Know: Kerchak from Disney’s Tarzan

On May 31, two twelve-year-olds in Wisconsin allegedly stabbed a friend 19 times in honour of the mythic Slender Man. Fortunately, the victim survived. We disseminate most urban legends and false news stories via the internet now, and the Slender Man was one of the first major urban legends created as an internet meme, its success often credited to the chaotic nature of the internet.
This latest tragedy is something of a horrific role-reversal. Monsters, serial killers and maniacs in film and literature are often inspired by the real thing. A truly horrific incident based on fiction is another matter. For no matter what sick, depraved Awful one can create, it doesn’t hold a candle to reality.
Bernard Rose’s Candyman both exploits and takes such matters into account. The film follows Helen Lyle (Virgina Madsen) a graduate student at the University of Chicago in the then-fictional academic field of Folklore. »

When asked what the hometown of horror is, Providence, Ri, doesn't immediately come to mind. But Woodhaven has become a prolific horror studio, located right in the heart of New England, and we recently visited the set of their newest film, Almost Mercy.
The location was a no-tell motel where, if the walls could talk…Omg, the stories they would tell! It was the perfect setting for one of the key scenes for the film. Director Tom DeNucci took some time out of his shooting schedule to talk about Almost Mercy and the progress of Woodhaven Productions.
"The film is definitely darker, definitely more sinister. It has a lot less of the campy throwback horror-comedy," DeNucci said. "However, it does have a very slick, cutting and mean dark comedy to it, which is fun. I've never had a chance to flex those muscles before. That I attribute to getting to work with B. »

Just as quickly as Afflicted redefined the “found footage” horror subgenre, SX_Tape came along and proved there are still Plenty of opportunities for filmmakers to exploit first-person horror normalities. One day there’s a bright hope, the next there’s a disgusting reminder that for every original idea, someone else will rehash the past few years of duds for their own ill-conceived shitfest. I want to remain positive, happily accepting an advancement in “found footage” horror – but it takes a certain type of awful to make me hate a movie in which our lead, possessed character jumps up and down screaming “Let Me Suck Your Dick!” To think some inexperienced filmmaker could just waltz into stardom with such a – wait, this was directed by Bernard Rose of Candyman fame? Oh boy, where’s Tony Todd when you need him?

A long, long time ago, in the early-'90s, a cult classic horror movie caught everyone off guard and ended up making Tony Todd a horror staple. Candyman, directed by Bernard Rose and based off a Clive Barker short story, was a critical and financial success. And then...Bernard Rose didn’t really do too much. He made a couple of historical films, a gothic horror-esque movie, but the man who was praised for his work with this now classic genre film stayed away from the genre. Now, he’s back with SX_Tape.
