Eerie Leatherface Poster Teases The Birth Of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

26 July 2017 1:10 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Leatherface and Jigsaw, two horror flicks prepped and ready for this year’s crowded Halloween season, have kick-started their respective marketing campaigns, and they seem to have come at the expense of the local livestock.

Whereas Michael and Peter Spierig’s Saw sequel has incorporated severed pig heads into its suitably creepy character portraits – character portraits designed to spotlight John Kramer’s many disciples more than anything else – the latest one-sheet for Leatherface features a mysterious individual dressed in dungarees. Oh, and they also happen to be sporting a cow’s head for added effect. Because apparently a prequel movie chronicling the origins behind that infamous Texas Chainsaw Massacre wasn’t enough to send a shiver or three down our spines.

Directing from a script penned by Seth M. Sherwood, Julien Maury, and Alexandre Bustillo are behind the lens for Leatherface, which is due to premiere via DirecTV in two months’ time. »

Newswire: Here’s what’s coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in August

24 July 2017 7:57 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Netflix seems to be shooting for something of a theme in August, presumably to coincide with the release of a highly anticipated original series bringing together a team of superhumanly talented individuals to change the world for the better. We speak, of course of Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the latest in the growing Wet Hot franchise that hits the service on August 4. And yes, there’s also Marvel’s The Defenders, which premiered its first episode (and a new trailer!) at Comic-Con this past weekend and debuts on August 18. Also new in Netflix originals this month is Adam Wingard’s live-action adaptation of Death Note, a more morally ambiguous affair that debuts on August 25.

Perhaps as a mea culpa for canceling the sci-fi siblings’ cult series Sense8, Netflix is adding a handful of Wachowski Sisters titles to its library this month, including Cloud Atlas »

New Photos From Leatherface Get A Little Bloody

19 July 2017 2:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a saga so embedded in the modern-day horror genre, that it’s almost difficult to imagine a future without it.

Of course, we know that Hollywood is partial to rebooting/resurrecting a dormant horror franchise for a new generation – think of Andy Muschietti’s It, Friday the 13th and, to a lesser extent, Jigsaw – and come October, directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will carve out a new chapter in the storied history of TCM in the form of Leatherface.

It’s a prequel to Tobe Hooper’s genre classic of 1974, when a group of unsuspecting teens stumbled upon a cannibal family and Leatherface himself, the serial killer famed for wearing a mask made of human skin. Gnarly stuff, by anyone’s standards, and at least based on these new photos for the film, which come to us by way of Bloody Disgusting, the Texas Chainsaw »

BiFan Film Review: ‘Bad Black’

18 July 2017 11:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bad Black” is a deliriously entertaining multi-genre mashup by the self-taught and staggeringly prolific Ugandan filmmaker Nabwana I.G.G. This supercharged mix of pretty good kung-fu, gloriously bad special effects and wickedly funny voiceover narration is also sprinkled with affecting drama and sharp social commentary that elevate it far above mere novelty status. Guaranteed to thrill midnight-movie geeks and well worth the attention of cineastes and film scholars, the film is enjoying a highly successful festival run and won the audience award at Austin Fantastic Fest. In light of this significant new exposure, and with the prospect of his movie becoming a cult hit, it will be very interesting to see what the future holds for Nabwana.

Nabwana (full name: Nabwana Isaac Godfrey Geoffrey) has cranked out nearly 40 features in the past 15 years. Since 2011 his principal collaborator has been Alan Hofmanis, a filmic jack-of-all-trades New Yorker who viewed the trailer for Nabwana’s “Who Killed Captain Alex” (2.8 million »

A Nightmarish Legacy Begins To Unfold In This Red Band Leatherface Trailer

17 July 2017 10:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This Halloween, Lionsgate is plotting double trouble.

On the one hand, the studio is working closely with Michael and Peter Spierig to rustle up Jigsaw, the eighth Saw movie that’s poised to carve out a new chapter in the blood-drenched lore of John Kramer (Tobin Bell). It’s by no means the only marquee horror picture due to arrive in October though, as Lionsgate and Millennium Films are also preparing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel movie known simply as Leatherface.

A minimalist, yet instantly recognizable title isn’t the only thing that the two projects have in common, either, as Leatherface is also on the verge of becoming the eighth entry into the Texas Chainsaw series later this year. Pitched as “a brutal and nihilistic road movie,” that sense of legacy isn’t lost on co-directors Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who are working from a script by Seth M. Sherwood. »

Falling into a coma and waking up with a loving boyfriend by your side sounds like the perfect fantastical romantic comedy — except it actually happened.

At the start of their relationship, comedian Kumail Nanjiani and writer Emily V. Gordon had no idea they’d be married eight months later. But everything changed when Gordon fell inexplicably sick and was put into a medically induced coma. After being diagnosed with Still’s disease, a rare systemic autoinflammatory disorder that can shut down major organs if left untreated, Gordon woke up — and Nanjiani was ready to marry her.

Why Alyssa Milano Named Her Son After Milo Ventimiglia – Whom She Had ‘No Idea’ Had a Crush on Her

30 June 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Before he became the object of TV fan crushes on Gilmore Girls, it turns out Milo Ventimiglia was on the other end of one aimed at Alyssa Milano.

In an interview with W Magazine, the 39-year-old actor revealed Who’s The Boss–era Milano as his childhood dream girl. “When I was a kid it was totally Alyssa Milano,” Ventimiglia told the magazine. “I think everybody had a crush on Alyssa Milano.”

Milano, 44 — who costarred with Ventimiglia in the 2008 horror film Pathology as his fiancée — remained oblivious to this infatuation, even after becoming close enough friends to name her first child after him. »
