The Chicago Critics' Top 100 Horror (or Just Plain Creepy) Films in History

31 October 2014 3:20 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Scariest movies ever made: The top 100 horror films according to the Chicago Film Critics (photo: Janet Leigh, John Gavin and Vera Miles in Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho') I tend to ignore lists featuring the Top 100 Movies (or Top 10 Movies or Top 20 Movies, etc.), no matter the category or criteria, because these lists are almost invariably compiled by people who know little about films beyond mainstream Hollywood stuff released in the last decade or two. But the Chicago Film Critics Association's list of the 100 Scariest Movies Ever Made, which came out in October 2006, does include several oldies — e.g., James Whale's Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein — in addition to, gasp, a handful of non-American horror films such as Dario Argento's Suspiria, Werner Herzog's Nosferatu the Vampyre, and F.W. Murnau's brilliant Dracula rip-off Nosferatu. (Check out the full list of the Chicago Film Critics' top 100 horror movies of all time. »

See what he and Samara herself (actress Daveigh Chase) look like now in the gallery above.David was only 9-years-old when the horror flick was released -- but does it feel like a lifetime ago for the former actor?

Steve Carell & Gore Verbinski To Work Together On Thriller

7 October 2014 11:43 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Planned for a March 2015 shoot, Steve Carrell and Gore Verbinski are teaming up for a paranoia-fuelled thriller. Although primarily known for his comedic roles, Carrell is receiving a lot of buzz around his dramatic role in Foxcatcher, and not just for his prosthetic nose. Carell first came to our attention as the smug news anchor in Bruce Almighty, before really hitting it big with roles in Anchorman and The 40 Year-old Virgin, as well as starring in the Us version of The Office.

Verbinski on the other hand, has had a versatile career that has taken in huge Hollywood blockbuster franchises in the form of Pirates Of The Caribbean, slapstick farce in Mousehunt, and horror in the remake of The Ring. Although not much else is known about this upcoming project, it will be scripted by Steve Conrad, the man who wrote this year’s The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty. »

Gore Verbinski to Next Direct Steve Carell in Paranoid Thriller; Lines Up Two More Projects

7 October 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Gore Verbinski is coming back with a vengeance.  After helming the massively popular Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy with a swell mix of elegance and goofiness, the director took his talents to the animated world with the fantastic Rango.  Most recently, however, Verbinski helmed the poorly received and very expensive The Lone Ranger.  As a fan of the filmmaker I was still eager to see what he would do next, and now Verbinski is lining up his next three projects.  He will first helm an untitled paranoid thriller starring Steve Carell, and then plans to shoot the horror thriller A Cure for Wellness and the action comedy Passengers back-to-back.  More after the jump. The folks over at Deadline report that Verbinski has signed on to helm Carell in an untitled paranoid thriller for New Regency, with production scheduled to begin in March.  Steve Conrad (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) penned the screenplay, »

10 Insane Foreign Remakes Of Famous TV Shows

7 October 2014 3:13 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony Pictures Television

Localisation is an odd duck. There are stories you’d think were universal, that would cross the pond and still be enjoyable to audiences in other countries. You’d be wrong. Things get lost in translation, both literally and figuratively; just look at films like Trainspotting, which had to be subtitled when it was released in America. Technically the characters are speaking English, but the thick Scottish accents and unfamiliar slang made the dialogue pretty much impenetrable to a yank audience with some sort of explanation. Still, we should count ourselves lucky that all they did was add subtitles. It could have been a lot worse. They could have remade the film with an all-American cast to make it even more palatable to the Us audience.

It’s something that American studios have got into the habit with, especially with films. Rather than force audiences to sit »

Interview – Jack Reher talks Rex’d: Welcome to Scholomance

6 September 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zachary Leeman chats with Jack Reher about his new novel Rex’d: Welcome to Scholomance…

Jack Reher has graciously taken time to speak with us before about everything from how he became a screenwriter to the public release of his script for the Pin remake.

Now the writer finds himself filling some different shoes as a novelist. The work is titled Rex’d: Welcome to Scholomance and Reher had some interesting things to say about the throwback story to 80s genre films by everyone from Steven Spielberg to Joe Dante.

Check the conversation below out to get an idea about the book, its transition from script to novel and Reher’s fanboy love of everything 80s from Poltergeist to Gremlins.

Zachary Leeman: Tell me how Rex’d came together.

Jack Reher: Rex’d was originally a script I wrote. You know, it was at the tail end of last »

What’s Scarier Than ‘The Ring?’ How About a 3D Sequel Written by Akiva Goldsman

22 August 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Back in 2002, an unsuspecting horror movie ruined the lives of pretty much anyone who mistakenly thought they were just in for a fun time with friends at the theater only to instead develop lifelong phobias of backyard wells, VHS tapes, staticky televisions, girls with untrimmed bangs and being told you have to wait for anything for seven days. The Ring, Gore Verbinski’s exercise in seeing exactly how long it would take before he could convince Naomi Watts to punch a little girl in the face, is now a terrifying horror classic. It was followed in 2005 with a still scary, but not as fetal position-inducing second film from Hideo Nakata — who actually helmed the 1998 scare-fest Ringu, the nightmarish inspiration for the American films as well as a handful of other sequels and spin-offs. Now, almost 10 years after the last victim popped that unmarked video tape into their Vcr, the third American installment is going to drag itself »

Oscar-Winning Writer Heading Down the Well for The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Last month we learned that Paramount Pictures is working on a third installment in The Ring's American franchise, which is now being titled The Ring 3D. In addition to the title and dimensional change, a new writer has come on board, so read on for the latest!

Deadline reports that Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman is in talks to pen a new draft of the second sequel's screenplay, working off an existing script by David Loucka. F. Javier Gutierrez was previously announced as the project's director.

Goldman's previous writing credits include I Am Legend, Batman & Robin and I, Robot; and he also executive produced the first three sequels in the Paranormal Activity franchise.

Based on a Japanese cult success, the first U.S. film went on to gross $249 million at the worldwide box office. That was enough to justify a sequel, which didn’t match the first one’s B. »

'The Ring 3D' Brings on 'I Am Legend' Writer Akiva Goldsman

21 August 2014 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just one month after F. Javier Guti&#233rrez signed on to direct Paramount's horror sequel The Ring 3D, Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman has signed on to rewrite the script.

David Loucka (Dream House, House at the End of the Street) wrote the original script, which follows the return of an ominous video tape that, upon watching, will lead to the viewer's death from the nefarious spirit Samara. The project was initially envisioned as a 3D sequel, although it wasn't clear when F. Javier Guti&#233rrez joined the project if it will be crafted in 3D or not. Now it seems Paramount is aiming for a 3D release, although it isn't known if it will be shot in native 3D, or converted in post-production.

It isn't clear if The Ring and The Ring Two star Naomi Watts will return for the follow-up. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie McDonald are producing, although »

Akiva Goldsman to rewrite the screenplay for The Ring 3D

21 August 2014 8:20 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

It has been twelve years since Gore Verbinski's The Ring heralded a boom of Japanese horror remakes in Hollywood. It has also been nine years since Japanese director Hideo Nakata all but killed the craze with the awful The Ring Two. Now, it looks like after all this time, a third American entry in The Ring franchise is chugging along. Previously announced to be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez and written by David Loucka, the newly titled The Ring 3D may be getting a rewrite thanks to »

F. Javier Gutierrez Directing A Third English Language Ring Film

20 July 2014 10:34 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s been nearly a decade since the last trip to the well with The Ring 2, the second American film adapted from the 1998 Japanese horror. While the fervour for Japan-inspired horror appears to have long since been surplanted by the likes of The Conjuring and Insidious, Paramount is not ready to let go of the Ring. Now Before The Fall director F. Javier Gutierrez is in talks to handle a third outing.In development since at least 2010, this will be a third American look at the mysterious events surrounding a cursed video tape. Given how media use has moved on, we assume it's a pirated MP4 that has spread across the web by now. Oooh! And that would allow the filmmakers to get a not-so-subtle anti-piracy message in there too.With producers Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald attached, not much else is known about the film. Back when it was first mooted, »

The Ring 3 finally lands a director

20 July 2014 10:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The threequel to Paramount’s remake of the classic Japanese horror Ringu has landed a director and it’s none other than F. Javier Gutiérrez (Before the Fall). The third movie has been in the pipe line for a while now but the Spanish director is the first name linked with the task of breathing new life into the series.

The first movie – directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean) – grossed over $249 million worldwide  in 2002 and starred Naomi Watts in the lead role. Despite not matching it’s predecessor’s success the 2005 sequel – which saw original Ringu director Hideo Nakata take the hot seat – still managed to bag just over $160 million at the box office.

Gutiérrez gained genre cred in his native Spain after delivering two outstanding shorts called Brasil and Norman’s Room (a bite size tribute to Psycho), both of which were nominated for various international awards. »

F. Javier Gutierrez to Direct ‘The Ring 3’

18 July 2014 4:33 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

In the age of digital downloads and YouTube, no one should be afraid of a cursed video tape. Not even sure if anyone still owns a VHS player.

Paramount hired “The Crow” reboot director F. Javier Guiterrez to helm the third movie for the “The Ring” series. The first two films starred Naomi Watts and with the latest movie grossing over $161 million back in 2005.

The original story is based off the novel written by Koji Suzuki. Since the Japanese original movie “Ringu,” many sequels, prequels and spin-offs were made from this storyline.

Now the creepy girl can come crawling out your high-def TV once again. That will indeed be scary.
