23 June 2016 6:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dark Sky Films, Glass Eye Pix and Syfy have announced that filming has wrapped on The Stakelander, a sequel to the 2010 post-apocalyptic vampire flick Stake Land, which will see Nick Damici (Mister) and Connor Paolo (Martin) reprising their roles from the original movie.

Roaming the wilderness of a steadily decaying country, Martin goes in search of the one man who can help him get revenge. Once reunited, Mister and Martin prepare to battle a now-ravenous Brotherhood and its monstrous overlord.

21 June 2016 7:37 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The Stakelander, a followup to the 2010 Jim Mickle vampire film, Stakeland, has wrapped principal photography down in Saskatchewan this week, which makes this writer smile from ear to ear. I Loved Stakeland, and to have a followup (from a script by original writer/star Nick Damici), is already enought color me excited, not to mention the fact that original stars Damici and Connor Paolo are reprising their roles from the original film. Taking over directorial duties from Mickle, is the directing duo of Dan Berk and Robert Olsen of Last Pictures, creators of the 2015 thriller Body (which I Loved).

Joining the cast of The Stakelander is Laura Abramsen (Basic Human Needs), AC Peterson (Shooter), Bonnie Dennison (Beneath), Kristina Hughes (Green River) and Steven Williams (TV’s Supernatural). Returning producers Peter Phok and Larry Fessenden of Glass Eye Pix and Greg Newman of Dark Sky Films are joined by  co-producers at the Syfy Channel, »

Social media and horror cinema meet again, in Friend Request. Here's our review...

It is my understanding that young people today think Facebook is rubbish and favour apps like Snapchat to exchange misspelled insults and pictures of their sexual organs, so here’s a timely bit of techno-horror to crack the 'millennial' market. In fairness, Friend Request doesn’t mention Facebook once, but it does use every bit of terminology we associate with it, along with its fonts, layout and colour scheme. This illustrates just how embedded into everyday life Facebook’s verbal and visual grammar is, and Friend Request even finds time to be a bit scary every now and then.
