Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett offer up an idea for You’re Next 2

15 September 2014 12:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Spoilers for You’re Next, obviously…

Their latest movie, The Guest, is still out in cinemas (read our reviews here and here) and to promote the movie, director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett took part in a Reddit Ama. But while discussing The Guest, they offered up some ideas for a sequel to their home invason horror, You’re Next.

When asked what they would do if they were to put together a sequel, the duo answerd, “We had a cool idea that involves Erin being blamed for the first film’s murders. She escapes from a prison van and has to fight off attackers related to the first film’s Lamb Mask in the woods while she is still handcuffed to several other criminals from the transport vehicle. Of course it would get way more complicated than that but that would be the starting point.”

Yesterday it was reported that Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) was in line to take on the role of Snake Plisskin in the reboot of the John Carpenter classic, Escape From New York. While over to promote his new film The Guest (read our review here), Stevens told Flickering Myth that there was no truth to the rumours.

“(laughs) I just heard [the rumours] this morning,” Stevens said. “It’s the first I’ve heard of it. It’s hilarious if it’s true! I don’t know anything about it. But it’s lovely to have it banded about.”

During the interview, Stevens talked about this love for John Carpenter movies and indicated that he would be interested in the role however saying, “I need to make some phone calls, I think!”

You can also hear our interview with Adam Wingard, Simon Barrett and Maika Monroe talking about The Guest here.

‘Hellbenders’ Review

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Clifton Collins, Clancy Brown, Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair, Stephen Gevedon, Larry Fessenden, Dan Fogler | Written and Directed by J.T. Petty

Let me begin this review by stating this is most-definitely not your typical horror fare; something audiences will realise a mere five minutes into this raucous, sure-to-be-cult-hit, movie. Written and directed by J.T. Petty, who also penned the graphic novel on which this is based, Hellbenders is a genre-bending horror comedy that is most akin to Don Coscarelli’s recent movie John Dies at the End. If I had to narrow the analogy down I’d say Hellbenders is best described as The Exorcist meets Ghostbusters by way of Don Coscarelli and [early] Kevin Smith

Sound interesting? Then go out and buy it. Trust me. The rest of you? Let me try and convince you why you should spend your hard-earned cash on this little indie horror that could. »

Radio Free Albemuth – The Review

27 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I’ve always felt that instead of asking “what is God” we should be more focused on asking “what is the nature of God?” Should we really be so concerned with who or what such a power is, if we do not truly understand what purpose that power holds in our lives? Watching Radio Free Albemuth is a personal cinematic experience and this is what I feel is at the core of the film’s story.

Based upon science-fiction legend Philip K. Dick’s posthumously published novel of the same name — a story line that first began with Valis (1980) — Radio Free Albemuth is adapted for the screen and directed by John Alan Simon. Originally filmed in 2007, experiencing more than its share of difficulties, the film found itself stranded in post-production in 2010 where it remained until a successful Kickstarter campaign allowed the filmmakers to complete the film for official release.

Surprise! ‘Phantasm V’ Is Here With New Trailer

27 March 2014 11:07 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Phantasm franchise started way back in 1979, with Phantasm IV being released 16 years ago in 1998. Although rumours had been around (when are they not?) confirmation of a Phantasm V, titled Phantasm V: Ravager, only arrived on Wednesday. Despite this, the film is well into production with principal photography completed and a trailer already here to knock our socks off.

David Hartman, a man with a background in animation, directs, which seems like a good fit as Hartman worked on VFX for original Phantasm director, Don Coscarelli’s Bubba Ho-tep and John Dies At The End. Franchise regulars Angus Scrimm, Reggie Banister, and Michael Baldwin all return to reprise their roles.

Coscarelli promises some surprise for fans along the way:

[There's an] an extended sequence on the Tall Man’s home world. There are also some surprises thrown in that I promise will astonish long-time fans.

‘Phantasm: Ravager’, from Don Coscarelli, releases its first trailer

27 March 2014 5:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

A well-known name among cult horror fans is that of Don Coscarelli. The mind behind acclaimed movies such as Bubba Ho-Tep and John Dies At the End, Coscarelli’s most well-known for the Phantasm series of movies, a franchise that began in 1979 with Phantasm. With the last entry in the series coming in 1998, many wondered if that was the last they had seen from it, particularly with Coscarelli himself moving away from feature filmmaking for a decade. Thus, it came as exciting news to many horror fans when Coscarelli announced that filming on the new movie had been completed. Titled Phantasm: Ravager, Coscarelli hands over the directing reins this time to David Hartman, with the two of them co-writing the screenplay. A teaser trailer for the film has now been released, and can be seen below.

Phantasm V: Ravager Teaser Shows The Return Of Reggie & The Tall Man!

27 March 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*Update*

Today, an official press release, featuring quotes straight from Coscarelli himself hit the internet, to shed some light on the film. Read on!

(Hollywood, CA) ― “Filmmaker Don Coscarelli announced today that Phantasm: Ravager, the long-awaited fifth and final entry in his classic horror Phantasm series, has completed principle photography. The original Phantasm was a worldwide critical and boxoffice smash, spawning a huge cult of fans around the world and three well received sequels.   For the first time in the franchise’s history, a new director is helming the production, one David Hartman. Hartman is a multiple Emmy-nominated animation director, whose work can be seen in such celebrated shows as Transformers Prime and Roughnecks: Starship Troopers. Serious genre fans have long been familiar with Hartman’s edgier output, including two blood-soaked music videos for Rob Zombie (“American Witch,” and “Lords of Salem”), and his illustrations of Steve Niles’ “Strange Cases” for Image Comics. »

Phantasm V: Ravager Confirmed With A Trailer Release

27 March 2014 11:16 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

For a few years now we’ve been waiting to learn more about Don Coscarelli’s last foray into his Phantasm franchise, but the horror director has been pretty tight lipped when discussing future plans – even denying the existence of Phantasm V: Ravager not too long ago. Can you blame him? Fans have eagerly been awaiting Coscarelli’s last “hoorah” concerning his most fabled property, and there was no reason to open up the floodgate of questions that a fifth film would create – until now.

A few days ago reports of Phantasm V: Ravager surfaced on a few major horror websites, but there was still a smidgen of speculation. Well, consider that doubt completely unnecessary, because we’ve now got the first trailer for David Hartman’s fifth and final Phantasm movie – final as in “if they don’t remake or reboot the franchise somewhere down the road.”
