In today's Horror Highlights, we have a Q&A with The Gracefield Incident at Mathieu Ratthe, new stills from Volumes of Blood: Horror Stories, and details on Famous Monsters of Filmland's presence at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Thanks for taking the time to answer some questions for us, Mathieu. How and when did you first come up with the idea for The Gracefield Incident?
Mathieu Ratthe: First of all, thank you, Derek, for your interest in our film. I wanted to create a suspenseful story that scared the crap out of the audience, but also made them emotionally involved, which is really tough to do in this kind of movie, but I think we achieved it pretty well in our film.
The conceptual idea (or I liked to call it the “technique”) came after I realized how many days I was given to shoot our film with the budget that I had. »

Xenomorphs and their Neomorph offspring are becoming the key marketing factor when it comes to Alien: Covenant. 20th Century Fox knows what the fans want to see. And their latest offering delivers just that. A new poster has arrived, and it features the new monsters on the attack. It also teases the arrival of one scary looking mama.
The path to paradise begins in hell! And this latest one-sheet certainly looks like it's swimming in the bowels of Hades. 20th Century Fox has released this new poster for Alien: Covenant! Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created with a new chapter in his groundbreaking Alien franchise. And we get a tease of the horrors that await when this sci-fi thriller hits theaters May 19, 2017.
Ridley Scott, at the age of 79-years-old, is a man who is showing absolutely no signs of slowing down. After directing The Martian, his most critically and financially successful movie in more than 15 years, he is returning to the world of Alien with the highly-anticipated Alien: Covenant. Unlike Prometheus, this movie is not just going to be taking place within that same universe with loose ties to the Alien mythology. This is a true-to-form Alien movie and if Ridley Scott has his way, it will be the first of many.
I was lucky enough to participate in a roundtable discussion with Sir Ridley Scott at SXSW about Alien: Covenant. We were also joined by cast members Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, who seemed just as pleased to be there as everyone else. The second a man like Ridley Scott starts talking, everyone listens. He speaks quietly yet confidently and says what he wants. »
The horror maestro announced the project via Facebook.
“David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team,” he wrote. “David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.” He added: “David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…Wow. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away. I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.”
Halloween will be released on October 19th, 2018.
