'Friday the 13th' Remake Brings in 'Hannibal' Writer

'Friday the 13th' Remake Brings in 'Hannibal' Writer
After settling on a May 13, 2016 release date back in January, Paramount is moving forward with their Friday the 13th reboot, hiring Hannibal writer Nick Antosca to write a new draft of the screenplay. Richard Naing and Ian Goldberg wrote the previous draft of the script. No production schedule was given at this time.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that the project "is expected to employ the found footage technique and answer the decades old question of why slasher Jason Voorhes can't be killed." Ironically, producer Bradley Fuller addressed both of these story aspects last month, although he said the reboot won't be a found footage movie, but later teased that they are "toying" with exploring the notion that Jason keeps coming back to life. With a new writer on board, it's possible that the found footage aspect is back on the table, but nothing is confirmed at this time.

Scary houses: watching the cheap horror hiding in Tesco

Spotted those shiny boxed horror movies in your local Tesco? Craig's watched them. All of them.

There's a certain type of horror film fan who enjoys a challenge. Perhaps they like a sense of adventure with their films. Perhaps there's also an element of gambling. It starts small. Low odds. For example, they might buy a boxset of the Alien Quadrilogy. Four seemingly reasonable films but there's an element of both chance and endurance. Can you sit through nearly eight hours of Alien films? And, if you can, how many of them will you like? Eventually not only does the thrill become harder to chase as the product's effect gets weaker (anyone who's bought Hellraiser boxsets will know the rules of diminishing returns) but there are only a finite number of franchises in the world and the hardened need to find new, strange ways of getting their kicks.

So bear with me.

Arquette An Unconvincing Villain In "The Cottage"

Somewhere deep inside The Cottage, there is a genuinely shocking movie. Its set-up is unexceptional Hitchcock homage, but the conclusions that it takes its characters to are fairly unsettling. Unfortunately, it fails to make any of those conclusions at all credible, so the end result is fairly ridiculous. Part of that is due to the awkward writing, acting, and direction at every stage of the game, but another is the relative impossibility of buying David Arquette as a real threat.

After a tragic accident leaves them without a tenant for their place, Chloe (Kristen Dalton) and Michael (Victor Browne) Carpenter have little choice but to take in Robert Mars (Arquette) as a lodger for the little dwelling behind their house. Though he initially presents himself as a mild-mannered author of romance novels, his presence in their home takes on an ominous tone as he encroaches further into their personal space,

New DVD Blu-Ray: 'Prometheus,' 'E.T.'

Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Prometheus" What's It About? Ridley Scott returns to the world of "Alien" with an epic prequel about mankind's first contact with a mysterious alien race who may or may not be our makers, and may or may not have sinister purposes. See It Because: "Prometheus" pulled off a rare feat, adding a new layer of intrigue to the rich mythology of the "Alien" series. Not since "Inception" has a summer blockbuster come along with such audacious head-scratching concepts. And despite being filled with plot holes, it was still fun to argue about the film's big questions. Also, the always brilliant Michael Fassbender was terrific as David, an android servant with T.E. Lawrence-sized dreams of exploration. Watch Noomi Rapace's Screen Test for "Prometheus" - (Also Available on Amazon Instant Video | Netflix) Moviefone's Blu-ray Pick of the Week "E.T.
