Is Leatherface a Girl in the Texas Chainsaw Prequel?

11 May 2016 5:51 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last April, new details about the long-awaited Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel Leatherface were revealed, teasing the plot has quite the interesting twist. In March, it was reported that British actor Sam Strike had been cast as the title character, but it was later explained that he is actually playing one of four characters who could be Leatherface. Last week, producer Christa Campbell revealed the first photo from this horror prequel, which hints that Leatherface may actually be a young girl.

Sam Strike is joined by Sam Coleman, James Bloor and Jessica Madsen as the four teenagers who escape from a mental institution, all of whom have an affinity for wielding chainsaws. They kidnap a young nurse (Vanessa Grasse) as they make their escape, with a local sheriff (Stephen Dorff) trying to track them down. By the end of the movie, one of these teenagers will ultimately be revealed as Leatherface. »

Editorial: It’s About Time For A Female Slasher Icon

27 April 2016 4:35 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*Editor’s note– Genre writer Danni Darko asked me if there was a topic I was passionate about and I said, “I really want a female slasher icon, I think it’s time for Freddy and Jason to have a female counterpart,…wanna write a piece about that?”, and here we are, a piece that I absolutely love. Read on! -Jerry

 Looking through the annals of cinematic history, the Slasher sub genre is the proud home of some of the most iconic killers in film.  Thanks to horror, movie audiences around the globe, have been introduced to the child killer Freddy Kruger, the unfortunate Summer Camp casualty Jason Voorhees, the silent madman Michael Myers, and the cannibalistic Texans, the Hewitt clan, namely the large and not so in charge Leatherface.  These killers defined an entire sub genre and set the tone for subsequent releases for years to come, and in »

Competition: Win a copy of the ‘Martyrs’ remake on DVD

6 April 2016 9:36 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

To celebrate the release of Martyrs - out now on DVD and Digital HD – we have a copy on DVD to giveaway.

A brilliant reimagining of the French revenge shocker, this all-new version puts its own bloody stamp on the story – but is just as harrowing, visceral and gutsy. Directed by the “ones to watch” sibling duo of Kevin and Michael Goetz (Scenic Route), Martyrs is one of the most exciting horror remakes yet.

It also boasts some great performances from its young cast, with Troian Bellisario and Bailey Noble proving themselves as two scream queens for the ultra-violent generation – plus cult star Toby Huss makes the most chilling appearance of his career.

To win a copy of Martyrs on DVD, just answer the following question:

Who directed the original version of Martyrs? Was it:

a) Pascal Laugier

b) Xavier Gens

c) Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury

The Last Horror Blog: 'Inside' Remake Lands a Director, Plus: First Trailer for the 'Wolf Creek' Miniseries

31 March 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

English remake of Inside lands a director – Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s Inside is one of the crown jewels of the all too short French New Wave horror movement. A harrowing tale of a pregnant woman stalked in her home, it’s intense, gory, visceral, and essentially (aside from a few logic issues) perfect. So, normally, news of a remake would be met with groans. However, this newly announced English language version could be interesting… Miguel Angel Vivas (who gave us the highly-entertaining film Kidnapped) will direct the update (which features a script from [Rec] filmmaker Jaume Balaguero) when it begins shooting in the very near future. Given that this doesn’t seem to be a traditional Hollywood-styled remake, and that Kidnapped certainly...

Miguel Ángel Vivas To Direct English-Language Remake Of Inside

23 March 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Miguel Ángel Vivas, director of Kidnapped and Extinction, is currently in pre-production for the English-language remake of Inside, it was announced on Cineuropa. Jaume Balagueró, one of the great auteurs of contemporary Spanish horror film, has co-written the updated screenplay with Manu Díez (with whom he worked on [Rec]2 and [Rec]4), and will also serve as an executive producer. Adrían Guerra and Nuria Valls of Nostromo Pictures (Buried, Palm Trees in the Snow) are on board to produce, with shooting to begin shortly. Readers are probably familiar with the original Inside from France (written and directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo), one of the most terrifying films of recent years. A pregnant woman, living in an isolated area after the death of her husband,...

The Nightmare On Elm Street Remake Almost Made A Major Change With Its Cast

16 March 2016 6:41 AM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

While many of the remakes and reboots that have inundated Hollywood in recent years have reached some level of success, one genre that has had difficulty has been horror. Among the recent terrible attempts to remake classic horror films was the lackluster A Nightmare on Elm Street from 2010 that was so forgettable you.d probably forgotten they even made it. However, one early idea for the remake would have taken the film in a very different, and truly scary, direction. When the Nightmare on Elm Street remake was first going into production French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who had made the indie slasher Inside, were in talks to take on the reins. Things eventually went in a different direction, but Bloody Disgusting recently inquired as to what their plan would have been. The description is already quite terrifying.  Our idea of a good remake is to have a »

The Bottom Shelf: Basket Case Trilogy and Audition

15 March 2016 4:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Our monthly round up of horror DVDs and Blu-rays, led by the wonderful and terrifying Audition...

So, it seems to be time once again to ask that age-old question: what’s your favourite cinematic depiction of conjoined twins? Ranging from the mutoid majesty of That Guy In Total Recall With The Talking Stomach Baby through to the Farrelly brothers’ gross-out gubbins Stuck On You, Hollywood has carved a progressive path in its depiction of wretched freaks of nature, magical otherworldly beings and monstrous killers. Following in this glorious tradition of stigmatising the disabled (insert Iain Duncan Smith reference here), this month sees the Bluray release of Frank Henenlotter’s classic splatter comedy Basket Case trilogy.

The director of the equally subtle Frankenhooker cut his teeth with his 1982 cult favourite Basket Case, which told the tale of the Bradley brothers, bemulleted Duane (Kevin van Hentenryck), the ostensibly ’normal »

The 'Nightmare on Elm Street' remake that could have been

8 March 2016 4:29 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Platinum Dunes' 2010 remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street was worse than bad; it was an entirely uninspired riff on its predecessor, with none of the terror, charm or killer subtext of Wes Craven's original. Not even an excellent actor like Jackie Earle Haley -- who was rendered unrecognizable beneath pounds of cat-like makeup as nu-Freddy -- could overcome the film's glaring deficiencies. Here's something interesting: while Noes is being remade yet again by New Line Cinema, Bloody Disgusting just provided an intriguing window into what might have been. What many fans don't know is that before music video director Samuel Bayer took the helm, Inside directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo were in talks to direct the remake. And based on what they told the horror site in a recent interview, if they'd had it their way the film could have been something more than just a tired rehash. »

'Nightmare on Elm Street' Reboot Was Almost a Twisted Take on 'Goonies'

8 March 2016 3:12 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rarely do we see young children hunted and killed in a slasher movie. But that's exactly what French filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo wanted to do with their version of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Way back in 2008, the duo was sought to reboot the iconic horror franchise for Platinum Dunes and New Line CInema. Perhaps their take on Freddy Krueger was just a little too much for the executives at the studio to handle. Cause the job eventually went to music video director Samuel Bayer. And man, did he ever fail at his job!

Maybe Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo's version wouldn't have been better. We'll never know. But it sure sounds a heck of a lot more interesting. In fact, the pair's plans might be the only real way to go somewhere new with Freddy. Speaking with Bloody Disgusting about their new French slasher flick Among the Living, »

New UK trailer for French slasher Among the Living

Ahead of its release next week, a new UK trailer has arrived online for Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s French slasher horror Among the Living; watch it below after the official synopsis…

Youngsters, Victor, Dan and Tom skip school to wander around an abandoned movie set. They stumble upon a horrific vision : a woman in chains is dragged through the field by a man wearing a clown mask. The masked man catches a glimpse of the boys, who scramble to run away. But, before they can escape, they see something which has been hidden for years, something they were not meant to see. Terrified of having been seen by the masked man, the boys try to alert the police. Unfortunately, their past record of unruly behavior discredits them and the police do not follow up on their tipoff. That night someone breaks into their homes, seeking to eliminate them… »

‘Among the Living’ DVD Review

19 February 2016 7:12 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Beatrice Dalle, Théo Fernandez, Damien Ferdel, Zacharie Chasseriaud, Anne Marivin, Francis Renaud, Fabien Jegoudez, Nicolas Giraud, Chloé Coulloud, Dominique Frot | Written and Directed by Julien Maury, Alexandre Bustillo

French directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the driving force behind the notorious L’interieur (aka Inside) and the stylish Livid, turn their gallic focus to a much-maligned genre – the slasher movie – with Among the Living, a film that’s best described as Stephen King’s Stand By Me meets Friday the 13th.

Starting out with a disturbing prologue featuring a cameo by an almost unrecognisable Beatrice Dalle; a prologue that recalls the nastiness and brutality of L’interieur, Among the Living tells the story of troublemakers Victor, Tom and Dan who, on the last day of school, leave early to explore the countryside and commit petty crime. Ending up on the scenery-strewn back-lot at an abandoned film studio, they witness »
