It sounds like Sylvester Stallone is entertaining the idea of making a fourth Expendables movie even though Part 3 was supposed to be the last one. The Expendables 3 completely bombed at the box office, and fans were not happy about it having a PG-13 rating. While promoting the upcoming Blu-ray release, Stallone told Crave Online that any future Expendables will be R-rated, and admitted that they made a mistake giving the third one a PG-13 rating.
"Absolutely unequivocally yes. I believe it was a horrible miscalculation on everyone’s part in trying to reach a wider audience, but in doing such, diminish the violence that the audience expects. I’m quite certain it won’t happen again."
The Expendables 4 hasn't gone into development or anything yet, but Stallone has some ideas rolling around in his head.
"I have actually entertained the idea of putting the group into such an unnatural environment that it, »

Image Entertainment has acquired U.S. rights to Digging Up The Marrow, a meta-fantasy flick from horror filmmaker Adam Green (Frozen). Green stars as himself along with a cadre of his genre pals in a story that begins when he receives a package from a mysterious man (Ray Wise) who claims he can prove that monsters exist. Green wrote, directed, and stars in the pic inspired by the work of artist Alex Pardee, who also appears along with Will Barratt, Joe Lynch (Everly), Don Coscarelli (John Dies At The End), Lloyd Kaufman, Tony Todd (Candyman), Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Mick Garris (Masters Of Horror), Tom Holland (Fright Night), Kane Hodder (Jason X, Hatchet), Josh Ethier (Almost Human), and the late Dave Brockie of Gwar. Digging Up The Marrow was produced by Green for his ArieScope Pictures along with Cory Neal, who financed with Andrew Mysko through their Hacienda Film Co. »

Halloween is arguably the greatest of all holidays. First off, as an adult, Halloween is the perfect excuse to marathon-watch the scariest, goriest, most pants-soiling horror movies available. Secondly, adults can buy their own candy, and none of it will be an eraser, gum or three dirty pennies.

When will people stop making wrong turns and bumping into cannibals?
Here’s the quick synopsis:
The unrelenting terror starts when an emotionally troubled young man, Danny, inherits an isolated backwoods hotel that may hold the key to his secret past. A trip to the peaceful resort quickly transforms into a blood-soaked killing spree, as Danny’s friends are brutally murdered one by one. Danny discovers that Three Finger and his flesh-eating kin are to blame, but the chilling surprises they have in store for him have only just begun.

The terms “Grindhouse” and “Exploitation” both get thrown around a tad bit too much these days. People seem to say that their film is a “throwback” to those slimy, gritty films of the ’70s, and the only thing their films have in common with those older films, is that fact that there are fake dust and scratches digitally inserted into their films to make them look gritty. Personally, I blame the Tarantino/Rodriguez double feature Grindhouse for this resurgence of movies trying their best to look like exploitation films. What many of the filmmakers making those films don’t realize though, is that added dust and scratches doesn’t recreate the fun and adventure of those balls out, gnarly films of the ’70s, that their has to be a genuine admiration and respect for the genre to make a successful homage to the revenge-actioners of way back when. »

All the Warwick Davis Leprechaun movies are coming out in a new Blu Ray combo pack. The commentary tracks offer some memories of my two contributions to the guilty pleasure franchise. Here are a few more.
I grew up enjoying the absurdist humor of the Monty Python’s Flying Circus TV series. So why not Absurdist Cinema? I loved the 1941 Hellzapoppin’, an early iconic example. The concept of the mid ’90’s Leprechaun franchise was proudly ludicrous – pint sized Jason/Freddy/Chucky amalgam with an Irish twist terrorizes and kills most of the supporting cast. But he was never really scary. I decided to embrace the absurd and make it as much fun as the formula allowed.

Todd Farmer has definitely made a name for himself in genre films. Having written the “Jason Voorhees in space” Friday The 13th sequel, Jason X, as well as co-writing films like My Bloody Valentine 3D, Drive Angry and the now lost Halloween 3D with frequent collaborator Patrick Lussier, Farmer is a staple in the horror community, an all around nice guy (I witnessed Icons’ Aaron Pruner once tossing a pencil at Farmer at a convention and surprisingly Aaron didn’t get the knuckle sandwich that Pat Healy’s character was given by Farmer in Cheap Thrills), and from the sound of it, a pretty avid gamer. Given that knowledge, it would come to no surprise that Farmer’s recent endeavor is the full length computer animated film adaption of the popular video game, Heavenly Sword. Ambitious and full of memorable characters, the Heavenly Sword film is one hell of a time, »

*Author’s note: In this second of three articles asking readers (and myself) if the Halloween, Friday The 13th, and A Nightmare On Elm Street franchises really have anywhere else left to go, the subject under the microscope this time around is Jason Voorhees, his mother Pamela and everyone else involved in some unfortunate events that have transpired through the years at Crystal Lake. Meant as a look back at the series’ history, I’m asking, what do you fans think? Read on!
The Friday The 13th series has gone through so many changes and reinventions, that like the character of Jason Voorhees, it’s somewhat of a mess behind its mask. Mostly known for the hockey mask-wearing slasher, the series first began as something entirely different. Producer/Director Sean Cunningham’s attempt to cash in on the Halloween slasher craze had its genesis in a trade advertisement trying to »

Described as the horror version of The Expendables, "Dukes of Hazzard" star John Schneider's Smothered is noteworthy for boasting the largest number of horror icons ever to grace the screen at the same time, which is a claim that certainly grabs hold of our attention.

Fairlight Films has released a new behind-the-scenes promo for the upcoming horror-comedy Smothered, which is written and directed by Hollywood legend John Schneider (Smallville, Nip/Tuck), and sees horror icons Kane Hodder (Freddy vs. Jason, Jason X), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, Repo! The Genetic Opera), Don Shanks (Halloween 5, I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer), and R.A Mihailoff (Leatherface : Texas Chainsaw Massacre III, Pumpkinhead 2), playing themselves in a scenario that sees them attending a small, disheartening horror-convention on Friday the 13th.
Running out of patience but principally money, the group accept a cash-offer to go and scare-up the local Rv park – but things take a surprising, dark turn when they arrive. The tables are turned as the monsters of the movie screen become the prey!
Early reviews have compared the film – which had it’s official premiere in New Orleans in mid-May – to »

Horny camp counselors around the world, beware! Jason Voorhees is coming to television. According to Deadline, Friday the 13th producer Sean S. Cunningham has inked a deal to develop an hour-long show based around everybody’s favorite hockey mask-clad machete wielder.
During his ’80s heyday, Voorhees was one of the most iconic characters in film, and his hulking, silent demeanor and signature goalie wear have kept him in the horror zeitgeist since his inception. Thanks to the increasingly odd nature of the sequels and the fact that Jason has been under the control of an eclectic cavalcade of writers, directors, »

The clean, crisp air; the smell of the campfire; the call of nature. (Wait! What?) Yes, those are all wonderful things we associate with summer camp. A time for young people to venture out on their own and have experiences they'll remember for the rest of their lives... even if that's only about another 25 minutes.
After becoming the setting of some truly memorable films in the 80's, summer camp has forever been tagged as the perfect hunting ground for the slasher. It's secluded, it's quiet, and it's filled with poorly supervised camp residents and camp counselors. Is there a more perfect recipe for a bloody good time than that? I think not!
So where do we start? Of course with the counselors. Oh those irresponsible, »
