Not having quite plundered all of the 80s for every possible remake, Hollywood is now starting to eviscerate the 90s. The latest quasi-classic to get the reboot treatment is Flatliners, which came out just on the cusp of the 1990's emerging into their own as a viable landscape for cinema. The original film contains elements from both eras, making it unique in the sci-fi horror genre. At this time, it's not known how the storyline will be skewered or altered, if at all.
Ellen Page is in talks to headline this version of Flatliners. It isn't known if she will play the role of Dr. Rachel Mannus, originated by Julia Roberts. It's possible that this version could introduce a whole new set of characters. The rest of the ensemble cast from the original included some heavy hitters from that time period, including Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt. »
The original film centered around a group of medical students who had the ability to travel into the afterworld to try to find meaning in their own lives, before having to be resuscitated in the nick of time before dying. Before long however, their experiments start to go south.

Joe Wright, the British director who, up until now has settled on bringing mainly period dramas like Pride and Prejudice and Atonement to the screen, focusses his talented sights on a retelling of the Peter Pan classic, which too can be wedged in that aforementioned genre, with the action taking place during World War II.
Pan is a brand new origin story written by Jason Fuchs, and was a screenplay that has appeared on the famous Blacklist, Hollywood’s list of the best of the best unmade screenplays. The action kicks off just before WWII, where Peter Pan’s mother Mary (Amanda Seyfried) is seen seemingly abandoning her newborn child at the gates of the Lambeth Home For Boys in south London. We very quickly skip forward 12 years to find Peter (newcomer »

Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon.
65 years after a spate of murders in a small town the killings start up again, but how could it be the same killer?
This trend of delving back into our beloved horror movies and totally screwing with the mythology is a strange one, especially as there seems to be no such thing as a straight sequel any more. The Town That Dreaded Sundown is a title that should be familiar to most genre fans as it has a fairly solid reputation as a proto-slasher/crime thriller that pre-dates Halloween by two years and presents a masked killer stalking and killing the innocent inhabitants of a small American town. This sequel/reboot with the same name is a curious beast in that it »

Wes Craven’s best films are all driven by ideas, whether it’s a boogeyman who can kill you in your sleep or that same fictional boogeyman gaining real-world power from our collective fear. When those ideas combined with politics or social issues, the results were Craven’s rare “message” movies — raw nerves transformed into horror films as a way for the filmmaker to express his outrage. 1991’s The People Under the Stairs is Craven’s first real “message” movie since the one-two punch of The Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. It’s also one of his most underrated.
Less a horror film than it is a pitch black comedy, The People Under the Stairs is Wes Craven’s most overtly political film. There’s nothing apologetic about it and, like Joe Dante would later do in Homecoming, Craven has something he wants to say »

“Where’s your spirit of adventure?” asks Drax, the film's villain, before setting off in search of the final skull of Touganda. This sums up The Phantom nicely. It might not work, but they went on an adventure and tried something interesting and different. Cinema would be richer with a greater sense of adventure. That said, the spirit of the film being expressed by the villain does serve as an example of what a muddle the team behind The Phantom movie got themselves into.
The 1996 film The Phantom is a bit of an oddity. It gets a lot of stuff really wrong, yet there are other areas where it comes up with a really interesting approach to the challenge of making a comic adaptation. It »

The Zappa Family Trust has given its approval to a new documentary about the original Mother of Invention, Frank Zappa. The film is in the early stages of development and will likely come out in 2017, according to Variety.
Director Alex Winter, whose early acting roles in the Bill and Ted movies and The Lost Boys have given way to directing tech-based documentaries (Deep Web, Downloaded), will helm the film based on his own script. "There has yet to be a definitive, authorized documentary on the extraordinary life and work of Frank Zappa, »
The Zappa Family Trust has given its backing to the untitled project.
“There has yet to be a definitive, authorized documentary on the extraordinary life and work of Frank Zappa,” Winter said. “I am beyond thrilled to be embarking on this journey. Our tale will be told primarily in Frank’s own words; he will be our guide through this journey.”
Winter expects the doc to be finished in time for release in 2017.
Zappa was a self-taught composer, arranger and producer who sought to push the boundaries of music. He released more than 65 albums and »

What, who, why or even how did your fascination with Horror begin? I will give you a minute to think whilst I set the scene. The other day, I was driving my car to work; A journey that has been done a thousand times before and as a result, it has become so tedious; so pathetically boring; I could probably do it with my eyes closed and without thinking (not that I will of course, that would just be plain dangerous on so many levels); But my point is, whilst I was driving, a question, not just any old question, but that question popped and buried itself deep into the back of my head. A simple question of What made me interested in Horror? Had evolved and mutated like a diseased zombie into further questioning and so forth, that in the end, a whole »

In The Confines, co-writer and director Eytan Rockaway takes viewers into the most unsettling parts of their imaginations with his intense psychological thriller that co-stars Louise Krause (Ava’s Possessions) and Jason Patric (The Lost Boys, Narc). Rather than give us another standard spookfest, Rockaway uses his story as a metaphor for something bigger, and the result is an effectively creepy tale that utilizes its tenebrous atmosphere and brilliant cast to its fullest.
The Confines follows Streak (Krause), a troubled woman trying to turn her life around in an attempt to keep custody of her daughter. She takes on a nighttime security position at an abandoned building where she is tasked with keeping things running smoothly alongside her new co-worker, Cooper (Patric). Things start off well enough, but as you may have suspected, there’s more than meets the eye at Streak’s new job once she discovers there may »
