For those of you in the southern California area, the 2016 Laff runs through Thursday, June 9th and is calling the ArcLight Culver City Cinema home this year. Here’s a look at what we’re anticipating once the Laff begins later this week, and for more information on the festival, please visit:
Full disclosure: Abattoir was edited by my significant other, so I am certainly biased, but my enthusiasm for the film comes from my excitement to see Bousman return to the hardboiled world of horror after working on The Devil’s Carnival musicals and his comedy-infused segment in last year’s Tales of Halloween anthology. »

This third week of April has some exciting home entertainment offerings for us genre fans, including the special edition releases of two cult classics I adore, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and The Stuff. An indie film I’ve been hearing about for a while now, Grimewave, also makes its way to DVD this Tuesday and while it may not be traditional horror, Oscar-winner The Revenant certainly has enough badassery contained within its cinematic frames to be worthy of mentioning this week, and it arrives on both Blu-ray and DVD on April 19th.
Other notable releases this week include Smothered (which features a ton of horror icons and was directed by John Schneider of Smallville and Dukes of Hazzard fame), 15 Till Midnight, Classroom 6, Ip Man 3, German Angst and She Wolf Rising.

Jigsaw is coming back to life once again, with Lionsgate moving forward on the eighth installment of their blockbuster Saw franchise. The Tracking Board reports that the studio has hired Piranha 3D writers Josh Stolberg and Pete Goldfinger to come aboard and write the script for this new movie, entitled Saw Legacy. No story details were given at this time, and it isn't known if Tobin Bell will be back to play the notorious killer Jigsaw.
James Wan and Leigh Whannell, who came up with the original Saw story, are set to executive produce this sequel. We reported back in 2013 that Lionsgate was developing this Saw sequel, but that report claimed the studio wanted to take its time and develop the perfect story. Lionsgate reportedly considered rebooting the franchise altogether, but it is not known if this new project will be a continuation of Jigsaw's story or not.
