Fox Greenlights Ryan Murphy Comedy-Horror Anthology Series 'Scream Queens'

20 October 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ryan Murphy will freak people out for the foreseeable future: The "American Horror Story" creator has just inked a deal to make a new horror-comedy hybrid anthology series for Fox, set to debut next fall.

Murphy, along with "Glee" co-creator Brad Falchuck and "Glee" writer Ian Brennan, has received a straight-to-series order from the network for "Scream Queens," which Murphy has described as blending the lines between two distinct genres. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first season will be comprised of 15 hour-long episodes, "revolving around a college campus that's rocked by a series of murders."

Like its predecessor, "American Horror Story," the "Scream Queens" setting and characters will change from season to season. Each season is expected to focus on two female leads, though Vulture reports that it's unclear if "Queens" will also take a cue from "Ahs" and recycle the same actresses in different roles.

Sam Raimi in Talks to Direct Love May Fail for Sony

14 October 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like director Sam Raimi will be moving in a very different direction of filmmaking than what we are used to seeing him do. Over the years he's given us films such as Evil Dead, Darkman, Army of Darkness, Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell, and his most recent film, Oz the Great and Powerful

Deadline is now reporting that the director is in talks to helm an adaptation of a novel called Love May Fail, which was written by Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick. The script for this film was adapted by Mike White (School of Rock, Nacho Libre).

The story follows a character named Portia Kane, "who is coming off a demoralizing ending to her marriage to a cheating husband." While going through this, she "returns to her hometown determined to clear the name of her favorite English teacher, whose career was forcibly ended after a classroom scandal. »

Top 5: Tomorrowland Trailer, The Judge, Ghostbusters Reboot Confirmed with Paul Feig & Female Cast, Whiplash, The True Detective Effect

11 October 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Highlighting a movie from a horror icon's filmography that was generally well received isn't exactly a reach, but somehow I still feel as if Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell doesn't get the praise it deserves. The 2009 release stars Alison Lohman and Justin Long in a simple tale of a bank loan officer who is cursed by an elderly woman after denying her an extension on a mortgage payment. The conceit may be straightforward, but Lohman's stellar performance in the physically demanding role paired with Raimi's knack for perfectly balancing horror and camp elevate the pic to something special. Perhaps the best thing I can say about Drag Me to Hell is that I have a great time seeing it, every time I see it. The blend of scares and laughs, of the hilarious and the grotesque, make it incredibly watchable even when your instinct is to look away. »

Director Sam Raimi Gets His Own Action Figure

9 October 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Sam Raimi, the man who brought us such films as Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, Army of Darkness, the Spider-Man trilogy, Drag me to HellDarkmanThe Quick and the Dead, Oz The Great and Powerful, and more, now has his own action figure! 

The Sam Raimi action figure comes from Credenda Studios, and it's a New York Comic Con exclusive. The carded figure will be available at the Tenacious Toys booth #208. The designer of the action figure, Beau Greener of Credenda Studios, will be signing the figures on Thursday at 4pm.

There's a limited run of only 50 figures, and they are priced at $65 a piece. This is the perfect collectors piece for any fan of Raimi, so if you get one, consider yourself lucky, especially since there are so few of them.

Female Horror Directors Get A Showcase With Anthology Film Xx

9 October 2014 5:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Magnet Releasing – the ‘genre arm’ of Magnolia Pictures – has announced the acquisition of its latest horror anthology, which will be produced by Xyz Films. Having seen huge success with The ABCs Of Death and V/H/S, among others, Magnet now turns its attention to Xx – an anthology made up of short films that have female leads and female directors. Now, if there’s one thing that draws out the anti-feminist crowd, it’s the subject of female representation in the horror film genre. The reason for their dramatic eye-rolling is fairly obvious at first glance – there are plenty of women in prominent roles onscreen in horror movies, so what’s the problem? Halloween, Scream, The Exorcist, The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Mama, 2013’s Evil Dead, Drag Me To Hell, 2006′s The Hill Have Eyes – in horror, it seems, there are women everywhere you look. So, why does Magnet Releasing »

Fantastic Fest 2014: Tusk – The Review

19 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Kevin Smith’s second venture into horror camp – the use of camp is not an accident – may seem like a grand departure for him on the surface, but make no mistake, Smith is still in his comfortable and safe wheelhouse. Tusk is without a doubt a Kevin Smith film to the extent that his fans will glorify it as his new crowning achievement and critics will roll their eyes and claim it as a pompous excuse of horror deconstruction. Neither are fairly accurate but both descriptions will give you an idea of how divided audiences will be on this one. This reviewer included.

Wallace Bryton (Justin Long) co-hosts a podcast comedy show called the “Not-See Party.” His show leads him to travel to Canada to interview new internet star “The Kill Bill Kid” – a naïve teen who accidentally cut off his leg while swinging around a katana.

Things I Learned From Watching The Hostel Trilogy In One Sitting

18 September 2014 8:52 PM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

There are moments in my life where I make extremely unwise decisions and I will be the last to admit it when I’ve made a mistake.  However, this is an instance where I will scream from the rooftops how much of an idiot I am.  I’m the type of person that likes to watch franchises all at once.  When it’s Halloween, I’m that asshole that stays inside all day to watch every single Halloween film ever made in a row.  Well, at least whatever ones will be playing on AMC that night, but I digress.  For whatever reason, I felt compelled to sit through all three Hostel films one right after another.  All this proved is that yes, I’m really into masochism.  I’m not going to sugarcoat it; I hated Hostel when it first came out. I really, really hated Hostel.  I felt the »

Bill Hader’s List of 200 Essential Comedies Everyone Should See

28 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Bill Hader has come a long way since his stint on Saturday Night Live, creating many popular characters and impersonations such as Stefon, Vincent Price and CNN’s Jack Cafferty. He is one of the highlights in such films as Adventureland, Knocked Up, Superbad and Pineapple Express, and so it is easy to see why author Mike Sacks interviewed him for his new book Poking A Dead Frog. In it, Hader talks about his career and he also lists 200 essential movies every comedy writer should see. Xo Jane recently published the list for those of us who haven’t had a chance to read the book yet. There are a ton of great recommendations and plenty I haven’t yet seen, but sadly my favourite comedy of all time isn’t mentioned. That would be Some Like It Hot. Still, it really is a great list with a mix of old and new. »

Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell are making an Evil Dead TV series

25 July 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

There’s unfortunately not a lot of news to go on right now, but according to Army of Darkness and Spider-Man director Sam Raimi, he and Bruce Campbell are teaming up for an Evil Dead TV show. Groovy!

Raimi dropped the bombshell during the Screen Gems panel in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con, while discussing the film adaptation of the acclaimed video game The Last of Us.  He didn’t offer any additional information about the show, where and when we may see it, or how it will connect to the films (if at all), but did say that he’s co-writing the series with his brother Ivan, who collaborated with him on Army of Darkness, Spider-Man 3, and Drag Me To Hell

We’ll have more news on the Evil Dead TV series as it develops. In the meantime, let us know your reaction and predictions in the comments below! »

Composer Christopher Young Delivers Us Some Evil

7 July 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Christopher Young knows horror. After 32 years in the business and countless horror movies under his belt from Hellraiser to The Grudge to Drag Me To Hell to his latest, Deliver Us From Evil, Young is a wealth of information when it comes to talking all things fear. A composer, but also a big fan, Young’s appreciation for the genre has in turn helped him give it some of its most terrifying scores. Young didn’t seek out the horror genre, it just happened that he was coming up in the business when films like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, and Freddy the 13th reigned supreme. Deliver Us From Evil marks the third time Young has worked with director Scott Derrickson, and Young is clearly a fan of the rising filmmaker, noting that he is one of only a handful of directors whose specialty is horror.  “He’s one of two or three horror directors that I »

Sam Raimi May Direct Afghanistan War Film The Outpost

26 June 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Sam Raimi hasn’t been quick to choose his next project after last year’s VFX-filled Oz the Great and Powerful for Disney, but we now have something on the horizon for the veteran director.  Raimi will produce and supervise development of an adaptation of Jake Tapper’s book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor with an eye towards possibly directing.  The nonfiction book chronicles the 2009 battle in Afghanistan, 14 miles from the Pakistani border, where 53 Americans were overrun by 400 Taliban fighters.  The conflict resulted in two Medal of Honor recipients, marking the first time the award has been given to two living soldiers for the same battle since 1968.  Hit the jump for more. Per Deadline, The Fighter screenwriters Paul Tamasy and Eric Johnson are penning the script for The Outpost under the supervision of Raimi.  The film would certainly mark a change of pace for the director, »

(Author’s Note: Bj Colangelo is a professional bleeding heart for the independent film genre and would like to spend one day a week focusing on a crowd funding project that she feels deserves to meet it’s goal. If you have a project you believe deserves spotlight, e-mail her at Brittnahjade@gmail.com)

Many of you may have seen this awesome (and free) short documentary on anthology horror films floating around your social media sites called We Come In Pieces: The Rebirth Of The Horror Anthology Film.  Icons’ own Rob G is even featured as a talking head alongside Rebekah McKendry, Brian Collins, Elric Kane, Joe Dante, Larry Fessenden, Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead, Darin Scott, Drew Daywalt, Michael Dougherty, and Jerome Sable.  This documentary was interesting, extremely well put together, and gave a friendly insight into why anthology horror films work so well.

Justin Long is Slowly Becoming a Walrus in New Bloody Tusk Photo

4 June 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Justin Long ('Drag Me to Hell') has been snapped by director Kevin Smith in what might be the actors most uncomfortable scenario to date. Laying with his arms stitched to his sides with a mouth full of what either appears to be a mouth full of blood or at least missing teeth. Long's character is the unsuspecting victim of an absolute nutter played by 'Red State' star Michael Parks who decides his new roommate should be converted into a human/walrus hybrid. Long stars alongside Haley Joel Osment ('The Sixth Sense') and Genesis Rodriguez ('Man on a Ledge') also star as Long's best friend and girlfriend, of course respectively. Head below the image. »

29 April 2014 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

'Tis the season for 'Clerks' director and SModcaster extraordinaire Kevin Smith. The announcement of his newest project has been made and the writer/director is once more turning his attentions to the realm of horror. As we eagerly await the arrival of his newest genre effort 'Tusk' the filmmaker is turning his attentions to 'Anti-Claus'. 'When I was a kid, if they wanted to make a Christmas horror movie, they'd stick an axe in Santa's hands...' says Smith 'In Anti-Claus, we leave Santa alone and creep with the Krampus through twisted tales of holly-jolly murder, desire, desperation and despair. Just in time for the holiday season.' And what's more is that the main cast has already been conveniently set up and filled by Justin Long ('Drag Me to Hell'), Michael Parks ('Red State'), Haley Joel Osment ('The Sixth Sense') and Genesis Rodriguez. »
