For the past couple of years, MTV has been developing a Scream TV series based on the film franchise by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. As of this summer, they had a director and cast in place. But now we’re getting some head-scratching info about the very premise of the show. According to Rj Torbert […]

There’s nothing stopping producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk in their quest for complete domination of the alternative TV docket. The pair first made waves when they introduced the world to the destructive lives of plastic surgeons in Nip/Tuck before they redefined serial television with the hugely popular American Horror Story for FX.
For their mainstream musical venture at Fox, the duo rounded out their “sound” by bringing in producer Ian Brennan for teen comedy Glee. With that show currently tying up its final season, Fox isn’t letting their winning trio slip through their fingers, as they’ve just given Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan’s next project, Scream Queens, a 15-episode straight-to-series order.
Slated to be a comedy-horror anthology, the show will debut in fall 2015 and revolve around a similar framework to American Horror Story. Each season will begin with a brand new story, set in new locations with entirely different characters. »

Ja from Mnpp here with our third week's worth of Halloween-flavored "Beauty vs Beast" treats - today we're swerving away from Wes Craven's cadre of high school students in distress to hit up a whole different kind of Final Girl fight club: jump in the Snowcat, we're heading up to The Overlook Hotel to face off the ill-fated Torrances, Wendy (Shelley Duvall) and Jack (Jack Nicholson), with their snowed-in battle for little Danny's soul.

With Halloween looming menacingly on the horizon, we're taking this week on Vulture to celebrate horror in all its gory, terrifying forms. First up, an oral history of one of the genre's game-changing classics.“Great horror films don’t win Academy Awards,” says horror auteur Wes Craven. Instead, they make money. Thirty-odd years ago, Craven, who’d eventually go on to direct Scream, had an unusual idea for a movie, inspired by a newspaper story about a boy who suffered from horrible nightmares and then died mysteriously in his sleep. After all the major studios passed on his script, Craven met New Line Cinema’s Bob Shaye, an erudite film-industry hustler. Their A Nightmare on Elm Street, released in November 1984, would become one of the most important and lucrative franchises in film history: It helped restore the evil monster — in this case, the striped-sweater-wearing, dream-haunting, pizza-faced killer Freddy Krueger — to »

Having kicked off principal photography last month, the first image from the direct-to-video sequel Tremors 5 has arrived online, showing series veteran and graboid killing machine Burt Gummer (Michael Gross) alongside his new sidekick Travis, played by Jamie Kennedy (Scream)…

Before he was the one-line-loving, crassly, campy class clown known as Freddy, Fred Krueger was the stuff of genuine nightmares. Scarred and grinning in his striped wool sweater, Fred prowls the dreamscape realm of the local high schoolers, the children upon whom he once preyed before their parents got smart and burned him alive. Years ago, Fred was a janitor at the elementary school; he lured children into the boiler room, where, it’s insinuated, he molested and maimed the kids. Now, years later, he returns to haunt the dreams of the children of Suburbia, America. Craven conjures the most surreal imagery of his wildly uneven career here, and Robert Englund instills Craven’s iconic creation with sharp, wry kind of terror, his playful delivery still ironic before the sequels declawed him. He wears his ratty old fedora like »

You can blame the huge success of Fargo for this. Hollywood, even before that, had been moving more and more to exploiting movie properties on the small screen. But since Fargo married up critical acclaim to a good audience? All bets are off.
Here are 23 - count 'em! - currently in differing stages of production...
The film: Earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar nomination, the beloved 1988 comedy drama Big saw him as Josh Baskin who, courtesy of a Zoltar machine, turns into an adult. Romance, work, and playing on a big piano follow.
No more rumors. Tremors 5 is official. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has begun principal photography on the sequel in South Africa.
Michael Gross, as previously reported, returns for his fifth appearance in the Tremors films alongside new cast member, Scream film series star Jamie Kennedy in this original release from Universal 1440 Entertainment, a production entity of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Ja from Mnpp here, with our second week of Final Girl themed "Beauty vs Beast"'s leading up to Ye Olde All Hallows - I didn't intend for this to also become a Wes-Craven-a-thon but whatcha gonna do, the man scribbled his name all over the genre in permanent marker, so here we are heading to the sleepy little hamlet of Woodsboro and the film that reinvigorated a slashed-to-ribbons genre for a new generation (my generation) - 1996's Scream. (And my apologies if this spoils a movie for you but I consider 18 years past-due on that sort of thing.) Let's meet our foes!

Halloween is almost here, which means you've got an appetite for horror: Good thing there are so many vampire, zombie, and serial killer flicks you can watch right now on Netflix.
Whether it's a classic like "Carrie" you want to revisit, an old '80s B movie you never saw or that Jennifer Lawrence thriller you missed at the theater, here are 31 of the best horror movies on Netflix, streaming in all their bloody glory. (Streaming options are subject to change. Check Netflix for latest availability.)
1."Carrie" (1976) R
Forget the recent two remakes (although the latest, with Chloë Grace Moretz, is also available to stream): Brian De Palma's version of Stephen King's novel about a telekinetic high school outcast who wreaks havoc at the prom is the only one you need to see.

Magnet Releasing – the ‘genre arm’ of Magnolia Pictures – has announced the acquisition of its latest horror anthology, which will be produced by Xyz Films. Having seen huge success with The ABCs Of Death and V/H/S, among others, Magnet now turns its attention to Xx – an anthology made up of short films that have female leads and female directors. Now, if there’s one thing that draws out the anti-feminist crowd, it’s the subject of female representation in the horror film genre. The reason for their dramatic eye-rolling is fairly obvious at first glance – there are plenty of women in prominent roles onscreen in horror movies, so what’s the problem? Halloween, Scream, The Exorcist, The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Mama, 2013’s Evil Dead, Drag Me To Hell, 2006′s The Hill Have Eyes – in horror, it seems, there are women everywhere you look. So, why does Magnet Releasing »
