This Fall ‘Prom Night’ Comes To Blu-ray

2 July 2014 5:28 PM, PDT | Horror News | See recent Horror News news »

1980 was a huge year for Jamie Lee Curtis. It’s the year she starred in three genre classics. ‘The Fog’, ‘Terror Train’ and of course, ‘Prom Night’. While “Halloween certainly thrust her into the “Scream Queen” arena it was the release of those three films in 1980 that cemented her crown.

On Sept. 9th Synapse Films will release the later of those three – ‘Prom Night’.

Malek Akkad Talks New Halloween Film

29 June 2014 4:21 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

So the big question everyone has been wondering since the announcement of the next Halloween film was whether or not it would continue on in the universe set up by Rob Zombie. Recently Collider caught up with Malek Akkad at the Saturn Awards, who shed some light on the subject.

“I can’t talk about it too much right now," says Akkad. "It will definitely keep elements and bring in new elements. But I really want to bring it back to kind of like, the classic – because the last one got a little dark – I want to bring it back to the classic Friday night horror film that people will really like.”

When asked about the ill-fated Halloween 3D, which was announced a couple of years back...

"Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier did a script. The next day after the last one came out, we were back in production for Halloween 3D. »

Scream Factory/Anchor Bay Partner Up to Announce Halloween: The Complete Collection, Includes Long-Awaited “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween 6!

19 May 2014 3:48 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Ok, so Halloween fans, get ready to change your pants. While a complete boxset of the franchise seemed virtually impossible, due to a handful of issues including distribution rights, and the longtime fan-bootlegged “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers seemed like it would never be released, the time is finally coming. The always on top of their game Scream Factory, is teaming up 50/50 with Anchor Bay Entertainment to release Halloween: The Complete Collection September 23rd, in two very awesome editions.

Personally, it’s not everyday that something as huge for a franchise happens, so this is definitely one to look out for. The rumor of the boxset sparked a lot of fans talking, and now that it’s officially been confirmed, what do you guys/gals think? Will you be getting this one? For the official press release, keep reading!!

'Halloween: The Complete Collection' Blu-ray Debuts September 23rd

Last year, the horror classic Halloween celebrated 35 years of terror for those willing to partake in its vision of unrelenting horror. But that was only the beginning of the celebration. What producers Moustapha Akkad, Debra Hill and Irwin Yablans, writer/director John Carpenter and stars Jamie Lee Curtis & Donald Pleasence started in 1978 has transformed into one of the most durable, iconic - and copiously studied -- horror film franchises ever created. Before Jason, before Freddy, and before Jigsaw, there was...Michael. Over the years, audiences have lived and relived the terrors of Michael Myers through ten feature films, as well as various re-edits and alternate versions. Yet to date, the complete saga of Michael Myers could only be told in pieces, in individual DVD and Blu-ray releases, with the rights spread across multiple home entertainment studios.

Until now...

Remembering My Mom and the Movies We Watched Together

14 May 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Every week is the anniversary of any number of films, and while they often turn into thinkpieces or lists of “things you didn’t know about…” for movie sites (like us), they sometimes stir more personal memories, too. These anniversaries are more than mere numbers or marks on a calendar. Movies can bring you back to the people and places of your past with memories both good and bad. Thinking of Manhunter for instance makes me recall how the theater wouldn’t let my friend and me see it because we were underage, and instead we had to sit through One Crazy Summer. I hate One Crazy Summer to this day. Most of my movie-related memories are far more pleasant, and recent events have led me to realize that more than a few of them involved my mom. She was never a big film buff or someone who, like my dad, could »

Fright Exclusive Interview With Master of Horror John Carpenter!!

9 May 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The name John Carpenter is synonymous with the horror genre just about as much as breathing is with life. The filmmaker helmed such classics as Halloween, The Fog, The Thing, Prince Of Darkness and many more great films, held close to horror fans’ hearts. The distinct style of his films, his usage of what’s called “the Carpenter font”, and his instantly recognizable musical scores have put him up front as one of the great “Masters of Horror”, a label that isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

I was recently lucky enough to be a part of a 30-minute conference call (along with other journalists from fellow horror sites, such as Fangoria and Arrow in the Head) with Carpenter, regarding his upcoming appearance on the Robert Rodriguez-created (and hosted) interview show, Director’S Chair. Each journalist was able to ask Carpenter a few questions, and John spent the time »
