Val Kilmer: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Sep 13, 2016

We examine the recent Val Kilmer movies, that happened to have bypasses cinemas...

Once upon a time, Val Kilmer’s individual look - defined by a little Swedish blood from his mother’s side - had hearts pumping. Those looks, along with his arrogant, edgy attitude and acting style, helped him clinch plenty of complimentary roles during the 80s and early-90s. Films like Top Secret, Top Gun, Willow and my personal favourite Real Genius were pushing him toward a stellar career back then, and his star was steadily rising.

But Kilmer came down from a serious high of Heat and Tombstone in the mid-90s when he signed on to the notorious clusterfuck that was The Island Of Dr. Moreau, and only recently has the part he played in its disastrous production come to light.

  • HeyUGuys
Texas Chainsaw 3D hits theatres this Friday, opening the first weekend of the year by rebooting one of the longest-running franchises in horror, dating back to the original 1974 cult classic.

All we’ve seen so far from the film has been promising plenty of blood, guts, and all-around horror when it lands, most recently with the latest trailer surfacing back in November. And with just days to go before its release, Lionsgate have released another great thirty-second TV spot to get us all in the mood.

“Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young

'Takers' Director John Luessenhop in Talks to Helm 'Leatherface 3D'

Towards the end of last year we heard that Twisted Pictures had set writers Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan (the team behind Conspiracy) to script another installment in the long-running Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. Leatherface 3D has been said to be a contemporary take on the chainsaw killer as a sequel to the remake from 2003 with the story being set 35 years after the events of Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic. Since then we haven't heard much about the project, but now Bloody Disgusting has gotten word that John Luessenhop, the man who brought us Takers, is in talks to direct the new horror. Gross! The man doesn't really have any experience with horror (though I'm sure one of the five people who saw Takers might call it one of the scariest movies they've ever seen), so this doesn't sound all that promising. But of course, this is Twisted Pictures ...

Takers Helmer in Talks to Direct Texas Chainsaw Massacre Sequel

Bloody-Disgusting has learned that John Luessenhop is in talks with Lionsgate to direct "Leatherface 3D," a sequel to the 2003 "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" remake. Debra Sullivan (Conspiracy) and Adam Marcus (Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday) have recently turned in their rewrites of Stephen Susco's (Red, The Grudge) script. The story will pick up immediately where Tobe Hooper's original left off before flashing forward 35 years. Luessenhop doesn't have the biggest resume. His only films have been "Takers," starring Matt Dillon and Hayden Christensen, and "Lockdown," starring Master P.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Reboot Gets New Writers

  • FilmJunk
Last year it was announced that Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production company had given up the rights to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise after producing both a remake and a prequel. Twisted Pictures, the people behind the Saw movies, swooped in to snag the rights [1] instead, and hired Stephen Susco (The Grudge) to whip up a screenplay for a new 3-D Leatherface flick. Now that the Saw franchise is potentially at an end (although I still find that hard to believe), they are turning their attention back to this reboot, bringing in a pair of new writers to continue shaping the story. Will this become their new cash cow? Shock Till You Drop [2] recently learned that Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan had been brought on board The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot. Marcus is best known for directing Jason Goes to Hell, the ninth Friday the 13th film, but he

New Texas Chainsaw movie on the way.

New Texas Chainsaw movie on the way.
So the Saw franchise has finally ended, and now with all this time on his hands, producer Mark Burg needs a new project. Fear not, for he has his sights set on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. Burg is teaming up with Carl Mazzocone again (both were producers with Repo: The Genetic Opera) to revive the title for a newer generation. Word has it that Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures are putting the finishing touches on Debra Sullivan(Conspiracy) and Adam Marcus’(Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday) screenplay for Leatherface 3D. Early reports say the story takes place 35 years after Tobe Hoopers original movie ends. Rumor has it that there is a cult involved. A Leatherface cult? Um, Ok.

Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures acquired the rights to Leatherface when Platinum Dunes and New Line passed on making a second sequel.

There is nothing about this news that instills confidence

Leatherface 3D Gets Nearer

Leatherface 3D Gets Nearer
With the Saw franchise apparently coming to an end, Twisted Pictures are turning their attentions to bloody pastures new. We reported a while ago that the Saw studio had picked up the rights to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (after they were dropped by Platinum Dunes following the 2003 remake and the 2006 prequel), and now with Jigsaw put to rest, producer Mark Burg is turning his attention to Leatherface 3D.The final touches are being scratched into a script by Debra Sullivan and Adam Marcus as we speak. The two previously worked together on the low-budget Val Kilmer Western Conspiracy, and Marcus also wrote and directed Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (except, of course, it wasn't). The word on the street is that Leatherface 3D picks up right after the end of the Tobe Hooper original (so will we see Leatherface finish dancing with his saw and mooch home?) before jumping forward 35 years.

New Writers for Twisted's Revamp of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre'

Didn't know there was another Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the works? There is! Over a year ago, Saw production company Twisted Pictures took over the rights to the classic horror franchise started in 1974 by director Tobe Hooper, and has a "contemporary" version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in development. Well, Bloody-Disgusting and ShockTillYouDrop are both reporting that Twisted has just hired a new set of writers, Adam Marcus and Debra Sullivan (both of Conspiracy), to take a stab at the script. Originally, they had The Grudge writer Stephen Susco on this, but now they've got new blood in to rework the script. I guess good news, if there is any, is that Adam Marcus previously directed Jason Goes to Hell way back in 1993, so he has plenty of experience in the genre. Besides that, these writers' names don't mean much, but there's not too much we know about the ...

Fiction: Compass ep 3 - Questionable Company

©2009 by Brad Parks

Honorable Father...

A certain object passed into my possession a few nights ago, and I must know more about its origin and nature...

With a soft grunt of frustration, Krane wadded the letter, his third attempt, and threw it into the wastebasket beside his desk. His hand went to his shirt pocket to finger the cool mesh of the soul net that had not left his person since it had been given to him. It was a puzzlement. Sending an inquiry to his father would take several days, and the return as long. And he had more questions than he had paper to write them down.

So he tried to focus on the forms he was preparing to approve the construction of a fountain in a small park in the Bodahlee District that would serve as a memorial to the first Minister of Finance, The book spread

Rko’s I Walked With a Zombie Remake Gets Director

Rko has found a director for its upcoming remake of the 1943 horror classic, “I Walk with a Zombie”. His name is Adam Marcus, and he last directed the Val Kilmer starrer “Conspiracy” (you’ve probably never heard of it, cause mostly it sucked), and before that, “Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday”, which as it turns out, wasn’t really the final Friday. Variety has more on the remake: The film focuses on a private tutor who discovers a terrifying family secret while working at the ancient estate of a New Orleans businessman. The original was a forerunner of the corps of walking corpse films that followed. Hartley called the film one of the most valuable in the Rko library. The 1943 original was directed by Jacques Tourneur, and starred Edith Barrett, James Bell, and Tom Conway. Marcus will adapt the remake with his writing partner Debra Sullivan, while Ted Hartley,
