Leatherface’s Puberty: New ‘Texas Chainsaw’ Details!
28 July 2014 6:13 PM, PDT
What would Leatherface’s teenage angst be like? Well, you might find out. About a month and a half ago we reported on the near-death of one Leatherface and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. Millennium Films, who was behind the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D, quickly refuted telling us it was just taking longer than expected. It appears they were being truthful. How quickly things can change...

We Obsessively Break Down The Mad Max: Fury Road Trailer
28 July 2014 6:13 PM, PDT
Perhaps sensing the opportunity to build on Mad Max: Fury Road's already-skyrocketing hype, Warner Bros. released a slightly abbreviated version of the Hall H footage earlier today. If I was excited before, I was straight-up overwhelmed upon actually seeing it. I don't know what I expected, but I certainly didn't expect to get choked up with unadulterated joy while watching it.

Why ‘The Purge: Anarchy’ Is The Most Important Horror Film Of 2014
28 July 2014 4:08 PM, PDT
I like to think that I’m a rather easy-going theatregoer. If people audibly respond to what’s happening on screen, I can easily tune it out and focus on the film at hand. However, I could hear the increasingly louder breaths of frustration from the older couple as the film progressed. With about 15 minutes left to spare until the credits roll, one of the more climactic events occurred that solidified The Purge: Anarchy‘s message of “down with the rich-white folks” and the older white couple behind me had had enough. The two stood up and walked out cursing and mumbling under their breath. I couldn’t make out exactly what they said, but something about “bullshit,” “Obama,” “guns,” and some racial slurs definitely came out. I’ve never seen a film outside of a Biblical story invoke such anger out of someone as they left the theatre, and »

A Final Farewell to FEARnet
28 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT
You may or may not know this, but as of July 30th, Fearnet will shut its doors forever. In April, Comcast NBCUniversal bought out Fearnet. Because NBCUniversal already has Chiller and Syfy, it was decided that Fearnet was redundant. Most of the staff was laid off then, with a skeleton crew kept around to help with the transition.
I have worked at Fearnet for the last six years - the last two full-time as associate editor - and it has been the most formative experience of my life. It would drive my husband crazy because I would work non-stop - but when it was all said and done, he told me that he never heard me complain. Not once. I loved this job. I will continue writing about horror. Currently I am writing for Shock Till You Drop, and I have some stuff in the works for Fangoria. I am »

Deadpool Test Footage Finds Its Way Online
28 July 2014 9:48 AM, PDT
Anyone familiar with the character of Deadpool knows that version that ended up on screen in X-Men Origins: Wolverine was an abomination. As bad as he was, it had nothing to do with the actor portryaing him, Ryan Reynolds. So when talk of a Deadpool movie featuring Reynolds, based on a screenplay buy Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Zombieland) that brought the 4th wall breaking charchter to life just as he is in the comics, it was reason to get excited. (Like this footage, that script also leaked years ago and is still fairly accessible online.)
The script, that everyone loved, had one issue in the minds of Fox studio heads, it was an R rated superhero movie. They commisioned a screen test using the opening scene of the film. Reynolds came in for the motion capture and recorded the dialog. The test footage has just come online (for now »
