Michael Myers Returns Again! ‘Halloween XI’ Slashing Soon Say Producers

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Recent reports of Halloween – The Next Chapter turned out to be false. However producers have used the opportunity to go on Facebook and clarify that although a follow up to Rob Zombie’s rebooted franchise is as redundant as a drawer full of rusty knives, the team at Dimension fully intend to revive iconic slasher Michael Myers for an eleventh picture:

We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter. It seems that’s the latest buzz surrounding the next Halloween film and again it’s just not true. As we stated before, a new installment of Halloween is indeed in on track and moving forward and we are currently developing a script, to finally bring Michael back to the theaters!

For those who’ve been hiding in a wardrobe over the past thirty years, Myers is the ultimate problem child, »

Films that'd get a fairer hearing if they weren't sequels

29 July 2014 4:42 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some sequels are doomed to live in the shadow of the hits that triggered them. Here are a few examples...

Following up a successful movie with a sequel is a tough proposition for any writer or director, and it's often the case that such follow-ups fail to recreate the magic of their predecessors. But sometimes, sequels can offer a different yet entertaining experience of their own, and it's even possible that, if they didn't happen to share the same name as an earlier hit film, they might even have been better received.

This article's dedicated to a few of these kinds of films. They offer lots of excitement, comedy, jolts of terror and a smattering of great performances, and might have fared better with audiences and critics had they not been sequels. At the very least, they attempted to do something a little different than the films they followed. While other examples undeniably remain, »

New Halloween III: Season of the Witch Poster from Cavity Colors

28 June 2014 11:49 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

“Eight more days ’til Halloween, Halloween, Halloween.” Sound familiar? If so, then you’ve likely seen Dr. Daniel Challis take on the evil mask manufacturer Silver Shamrock in 1982′s Halloween III: Season of the Witch, and there’s also a good chance that the latest poster from Cavity Colors will catch your eye.

One of artist Aaron Crawford’s favorite Halloween films, Halloween III: Season of the Witch is now immortalized in his latest 16″X 20″ limited edition print numbered to only 100 and priced at $30.00. The poster features the halves of two Silver Shamrock masks—a witch and a jack-o’-lantern—splitting down the middle to reveal a skull that is simultaneously the third Silver Shamrock mask and also a symbol of what will happen to those who wear the masks while watching the Silver Shamrock TV special on Halloween night (just think of the poor Kupfer family). To purchase this print before it runs out, »

Icons and Friends: Our Favorite Horror Scores: Sequels!

17 May 2014 5:44 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Last month, we thought it would be fun to reach out to a few of our friends in the genre, in order to bring you readers an article all about our favorite horror scores. The reception and the contributions exceeded our expectations, so when it was mentioned that “you should do a sequel to that article”, naturally, the next step would be just that: Sequels. So, we asked a few more friends, as well as some of the Icons gang, to give you a few words about our favorite scores to horror sequels. Enjoy! -Jerry

Rob G. (Co-Creator, Icons Of Fright; Host, Killer Pov): Psycho III

For me, Carter Burwell’s original score for Psycho III is one of the best film soundtracks to a sequel ever. Bold words, I know! After all, considering the history of composers behind the Psycho franchise. You can’t think of Psycho without »

Nicolas Cage to Star in Political Drama ‘The Runner’

16 May 2014 11:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Nicolas Cage will star in the political drama “The Runner,” Paper Street Films and Back Lot Pictures said Friday.

The Oscar-winning actor will play an idealistic congressman who becomes embroiled in a sex scandal. Production will take place in New Orleans amid the aftermath of the 2010 Bp oil spill, an ecological disaster that ravaged the area.

The picture is the directorial and writing debut of Austin Stark, the indie producer behind “Infinitely Polar Bear” and  “Happythankyoumoreplease.”

Production will begin on June 23, 2014.

Cage, most recently appeared in the critical hit “Joe,” which was seen as a return to form after a series of dispiriting roles in duds such as “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” and “Season of the Witch.” The supernatural thriller “Pay the Ghost” is among the projects on Cage’s dance card.  

Cage is represented by CAA, Mike Nilon at Klwgn, and Jake Bloom and Patrick Knapp at Bloom Hergott. »

Ken Loach changes mind about filmmaking retirement

2 May 2014 6:06 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ken Loach has revealed that reports of his retirement are not entirely accurate.

Last year, the 77-year-old filmmaker was reported to be moving into making just documentaries following the release of his latest film Jimmy's Hall.

"This is probably the last narrative feature for Ken," said producer Rebecca O'Brien at the time. "There are a few documentary ideas kicking around, and that will probably be the way to go, but this is a serious period drama with a lot of moving parts so it's a big thing to put together. I think we should go out while we're on top."

However, Loach has now revealed that he has changed his mind in regards to his retirement from drama.

"I kind of thought I wouldn't get through another one just as we were beginning Jimmy's Hall because it's a moment of maximum pressure when you haven't shot a thing but you're knackered from all the prep, »

Genre Gut-Punches: The Death Of Laurie Strode!

27 April 2014 3:46 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Very few character deaths piss me off as much as that of Laurie Strode. Halloween‘s heroine was put through enough trauma to screw someone up for life, just within the first two films, before being killed off in off-screen events between Halloween 2 and 4, brought back with some serious retcon work inHALLOWEEN: H20, just to be killed again (this time for real) in the travesty that was Halloween: Resurrection. I figured it would be a cathartic experience (cheaper than seeing a shrink) to jump into the story of Laurie, and how far her character came, just to be thrown to the side by what was quite possible the worst sequel of all time.

When we first met Laurie in John Carpenter’s ’78 masterpiece, Halloween, She was a shy girl, pondering fate and pining away for Ben Tramer. Not as outgoing as Annie or Lynda, Laurie was the wallflower of the group, »

Movie Review – Tokarev (2014)

26 April 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tokarev, 2014.

Directed by Paco Cabezas.

Starring Nicolas Cage, Rachel Nichols, Peter Stormare, Danny Glover and Aubrey Peeples.

Synopsis:

When the Russian mob kidnaps the daughter of a reformed criminal, he rounds up his old crew and seeks his own brand of justice.

Watching Nicolas Cage in Tokarev, having recently watched him in David Gordon Green’s excellent Joe just a few weeks apart, reminds me of a line from Michael Corleone in The Godfather Part III; “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in”. The difference being Cage’s decision to make utter rubbish like Tokarev isn’t a matter of potential life and death, it’s just exceptionally poor judgement from an actor who has shown us he still knows a good script when one lands on his desk.

Tokarev is the definition of what used to be called ‘straight to video’ and seeing Nicolas Cage »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2010

26 February 2014 2:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 27 Feb 2014 - 05:54

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2010, and another 25 overlooked gems...

By 2010, Hollywood’s obsession with 3D movies was in full swing. James Cameron’s Avatar may have given audiences a taste of what the cutting edge of stereoscope could look like, but it has to be said that the movies ushered into cinemas in its wake were a decidedly mixed bunch. Toy Story 3's 3D was extraordinarily effective, yet Clash Of The Titans looked like a blurry mess. How To Train Your Dragon came to life in its flying sequences, but the less said about the horribly murky Last Airbender, the better.

Unless we’re mistaken, none of the movies on this list were shot or released in 3D, and few of them did particularly stellar business. A few got a certain amount of critical acclaim, »

Exclusive: Nicolas Cage on returning to his roots with Joe, and whether he regrets any past roles

8 February 2014 1:02 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Nicolas Cage continues his shift away from B-movie action back to more dramatic, well-received roles this year with the release of Joe, director David Gordon Green's (Prince Avalance) adaptation of Larry Brown's 1991 novel of the same name. Ahead of its arrival in the Spring, Cage has been speaking to Red Bull'sRed Bulletin about his career for a feature that's set to land in next week's edition of the news app, and we've got an exclusive excerpt here where the Oscar-winner talks about reinventing himself as an actor, and whether he regrets any of his recent roles:

Joe is a far cry from the bizarre action spectacles you did in the recent past...

Nicolas Cage: That’s true, I am in the process of reinventing myself in terms of the movies I want to do. I am returning to my roots, which is independently spirited, dramatic characters. Before Joe, »

Top 20 scariest horror movie masks

30 January 2014 1:44 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Sarah Dobbs 31 Jan 2014 - 07:00

Any good horror movie villain needs a mask. Sarah counts down 20 of the most frightening face-hiders in the movies...

Ever since Michael Myers went on a killing spree in his Halloween costume, masks have been a staple of slasher movies.

Sometimes they serve to hide the killer’s identity, while other times they conceal a disfigured face, and other times, well, probably the production team just thought it’d look cool. Usually, the idea is that it’s what lurks underneath the mask that’s scary, but a good horror movie mask is frightening in its own right.

Here, then, are 20 of the scariest masks ever to turn up in a horror movie:

As worn by: Jigsaw’s various acolytes in the Saw franchise

Special Features - Does Friday the 13th Need Jason Voorhees?

22 January 2014 3:59 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks at Jason's possible exclusion from the next Friday the 13th....

It was an exciting time to be a Friday the 13th fan when Paramount announced they had re-acquired the rights to the iconic horror franchise with a view to release the 13th chapter in an already packed 2015. However the excitement became concern when rumours started to bound around that the movie might take on the 'flavour of the month' found footage format. Ironically the concern then became horror as producer Brad Fuller not only confirmed the rumour in an interview, but also mentioned (when asked about Derek Mears) that Jason may not be appearing in the movie at all.

The 13th instalment of Friday the 13th may not include Jason Voorhees. Just let that sink in then ask yourself, 'why?'.

While not 100% official, there is little doubt that the next instalment won't have some involvement from Sean S. Cunningham, »

No Jason Voorhees In Next Friday The 13th?

13 January 2014 4:01 PM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We're going to preface this story by flat-out saying we think it's highly unlikely. But the horror-inclined corners of the interwebs are currently abuzz with the rumour that the developing new Friday The 13th movie may not feel the hockey-masked presence of the series' signature slasher Jason Voorhees.The question mark comes from an interview with Crave Online, in which Platinum Dunes producer Brad Fuller is asked who'll be playing Jason in the next instalment. Kane Hodder? Derek Mears? "I don't know," says Fuller, "because I don't know if we're going to have Jason." He follows that with, "I think if we're going to go for a Jason Voorhees we would go with Derek. He's our guy."We'd have suggested that the whole mini-controversy stems simply from the wording of Fuller's answer, but that "if" does suggest that Jason is not a done deal. So what could this mean?
