First you watch it, then you die. Except in this case, it’s been a good ten years since vengeful VHS spirit Samara last got to kill anyone, her career floundering to a halt after the dull and unsuccessful The Ring 2. No-one did watch, and so Samara pretty much died with it.
You can’t keep a good horror icon down though, and America’s version of Sadako returns in Rings, bringing with her a remake of her own movie. It’s the new version of her haunted videotape which drives this belated sequel, sending doomed young romantic Skye on a quest to Samara’s hometown, »

“Revenge never dies” in Dead West, the new film from writer/director Jeff Ferrell. And with the road trip revenge thriller coming out on DVD via Rlj Entertainment this Tuesday, we caught up with Ferrell for our latest Q&A feature. In today’s Horror Highlights, we also have photos from last week’s Los Angeles fan screening of Rings and the trailer and release details for The Burningmoore Deaths.
Jeff Ferrell: The idea for Dead West was born during the shooting of my first movie, Ghostlight. One night after filming, I was with the lead actor, Brian Sutherland, in his hotel room. We were drinking beers and throwing ideas around, when he suddenly said, “I really wanna play a serial killer. Write »

Most box office analysts predicted that Split would fail to win for a third weekend in a row, going up against Paramount's Rings and Stx Entertainment's The Space Between Us. A surprisingly small third frame decline and an underperforming crop of newcomers lead to Split winning for a third weekend in a row with $14.5 million. Its domestic total now stands at $98.7 million, with a worldwide haul of $142.7 million from just a $9 million budget.
Director M. Night Shyamalan's Split has already surpassed the totals for his last low-budget thriller, The Visit, which earned $65.2 million domestically and $98.4 million worldwide from just a $5 million budget in the fall of 2015. While it was a fairly close race, Rings came in a somewhat close second place with $13 million, debuting in 2,931 theaters for a middling $4,435 per-screen average, according to Box Office Mojo. Rings' debut failed to surpass both of its predecessors, with 2002's The Ring opening with $15 million, »
While “Split” may well win its third straight weekend at the box office, Paramount’s newcomer “Rings” took the top slot on Friday with $5.6 million in earnings from 2,931 locations. “Split” followed closely behind with $4.8 million from 3,373 theaters. Both films should finish the sleepy Super Bowl weekend in the $13 to $14 million range.
“Split,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan and starring James McAvoy, has performed very well for Universal, Blumhouse and Shyamalan, who self-financed the title for less than $10 million. After three weekends in release, the psychological thriller should be on the brink of $100 million domestically.
“Rings,” revives the franchise started by 2002’s “The Ring,” starring Naomi Watts, which was a remake of a 1998 Japanese horror film. It stars Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Vincent D’Onofrio, Aimee Teegarden and Bonnie Morgan. F. Javier Gutierrez directed “Rings,” and Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producers. The horror sequel, which has a $25 million price tag, »

As art student Skye, Aimee Teegarden finds herself caught up in the deadly curse of The Tape in Paramount Pictures’ Rings. The inevitable meeting between Skye and Samara is one of my favorite scenes from the film, so I was excited to speak with Teegarden about smashing screens in that intense scene, working with Johnny Galecki, and what creeped her out the most on set.
Thanks for taking the time to talk with me today about Rings. I really enjoyed your character [Skye] in particular.
Aimee Teegarden: It was such a fun role—she [Skye] was so much fun to play. My dad was there [at the screening] with me last night and he was like, “Wow, you were really angry, weren’t you?”
Skye shares many scenes with Gabe, and it’s great to see Johnny Galecki play this totally different role than people know him as. What was it like working with Johnny in that capacity? »

Paramount’s opening weekend of “Rings” is creeping up on about $800,000 less with $12.7 million at 2,931 locations. Stx’s launch of teen sci-fi romance “The Space Between Us” looks to show little traction with $5 million at 2,812 screens, under-performing what were modest expectations.
Fox’s awards-season stalwart “Hidden Figures” — fresh from winning a SAG Award for best cast — is heading for a third-place finish at $10.3 million at 3,401 locations. That would mean a decline of only 27% from the previous session with the total U.S. box office hitting nearly $120 million by the end of Sunday.
Universal’s second weekend of Amblin’s doggie drama “A Dog’s Purpose” is chasing fourth place with $8.8 million at 3,178 screens, declining 52% from its opening frame — which was »

So far, 2017 has not been kind to long-delayed horror releases. Remember The Bye Bye Man? What a dreadful way to kickstart another year of screams. Surely no other genre equivalent could dethrone such a paltry paranormal effort, right? You’d have to be a tone-deaf, spookless, convoluted bore to challenge the dumpster-fire we call The Bye Bye Man.
I wasn’t prepared for just How misguided a sequel Rings would end up being. “Maybe the four different rescheduled premiere dates were strategic,” I thought, “and not telling of Paramount’s inability to salvage Samara’s name.” What a blissfully ignorant life I led right before that famous VHS static kicked in, and my basement-level expectations were shattered by horrendous franchise misdealings.
Gutiérrez opens with a midair disaster à la Final Destination, brought on by some random “bro” who stinks of distress. “It helps to talk, »

Paramount’s horror movie “Rings” has opened with $800,000 in Thursday night preview showings at 2,155 North American locations. STX's sci-fi romance “The Space Between Us” took in a quiet $170,000 on Thursday night in its first showings.
Paramount is expanding “Rings” to 3,371 sites on Friday with muted expectations in the $10 million to $12 million range for the Super Bowl weekend as it battles the third weekend of Universal-Blumhouse’s sturdy “Split.” “The Space Between Us,” is looking at an even more muted debut of between $8 million to $10 million at 2,812 locations.
“Rings” is opening with a straight-forward pitch about an evil videotape — “First you watch it. Then you die.” Paramount is reviving the franchise 15 years after it launched “The Ring,” starring Naomi Watts in a remake of a 1998 Japanese horror film. “The Ring” was a major success with nearly $250 million in worldwide box office as was “The Ring Two” with $160 million in 2005.

When Paramount started moving forward with Rings in early 2015, there was talk that this project was actually a prequel to the 2002 hit thriller The Ring, which starred Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, Martin Henderson as Noah Clay and Daveigh Chase as the iconic Samara Morgan. When shooting began just a few weeks later, director F. Javier Gutierrez confirmed that this story is actually a sequel, although none of the original cast members were brought back for this follow-up. F. Javier Gutierrez revealed in a new interview that he had actually considering bringing back Naomi Watts as Rachel Keller, but the reason it never happened may surprise you.
The Ring, which was based on the hit Japanese thriller Ringu, was a big hit at the box office, taking in $129.1 million domestically and $249.3 million worldwide from a $48 million budget. The 2005 sequel, The Ring Two, wasn't quite as successful, earning $76.2 million domestic and »
