'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas

'Jigsaw' Brings the 'Saw' Franchise Back to the Big Screen as 'Thor: Ragnarok' Debuts Overseas
Over the last couple of years, October hasn't been the haven for horror one would think it would be. This year, however, not only has the year itself been dominated by top quality horror releases, but It got a jump start on the scary season with a September release and October has already had Happy Death Day debut with strong numbers. This weekend, Lionsgate hopes to give the genre another jolt with Jigsaw, which brings the Saw franchise back to the big screen after a seven year hiatus. Additional new releases include George Clooney's Suburbicon and Universal's Thank You for Your Service while Dimension will finally release Amityville: The Awakening after over five years of the film bouncing around the release schedule. Expected to finish #1 this weekend, Lionsgate brings back one of the studio's most iconic characters with Jigsaw. Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) directed the film, which arrives

‘Happy Death Day’ Repeatedly Misses The Mark

So a very simple premise. Much like 1993’s Groundhog Day and more recently 2014’s Edge of Tomorrow, Happy Death Day has a protagonist reliving the same day on repeat. This type of story-telling can be incredibly clever and fun and after seeing the trailer for Happy Death Day, the idea of mixing this premise with the horror/slasher genre had me all sorts of excited.

Much to my dismay Happy Death Day is a muddled film to say the least. Starting off in the vein of Scream, it quickly transitions into a straight-up comedy, including a lively musical montage of the lead actress getting killed over and over. This is just one example showcasing the fact that ‘Happy Death Day’ cannot decide what type of film it wants to be. Given that this is a Blumhouse production it’s fair to assume this film wanted to walk the line blending

Blumhouse open to another Paranormal Activity movie

Despite the fact that 2015’s Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension was marketed as the final chapter in the hugely-successful found footage horror series, producer Jason Blum has revealed that Blumhouse is open to another instalment if and when writer Christopher B. Landon has an idea for a new movie.

Paranormal Activity is on hiatus, but if Chris over here, who’s done four Paranormal Activity movies – if he has an idea to reboot it, we’re very open to hearing it,” Blum told Cinepop.

Landon penned four films in the series – Paranormal Activity 2, 3 and 4, as well as the spinoff Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones – and has reunited with Blumhouse for Happy Death Day, which just opened atop the U.S. box office. However, with Landon stating that he has plans for a sequel to that movie, it may well be some time before he turns his attention to another potential Paranormal Activity film.

Review: Happy Death Day Delivers Horror Fun Again and Again (and Again)

  • DailyDead
In terms of his horror trifecta of films—Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, and now Happy Death Day—I’m officially ready to start the Christopher Landon fan club. You couldn’t ask for three films to be more different from each other, and with every effort, Landon has proved himself to be a confident storyteller with a deep love of the genre in his work, and that affection has shone through with each of his cinematic endeavors.

With Happy Death Day, Landon serves up Groundhog Day (a connection the director hilariously addresses full-on in the film) with a slasher twist that may be intended for younger audiences, but this “old-timer” really enjoyed its unique approach to a modern murder mystery, and it’s easily the most “fun” studio horror movie set to hit theaters this October.

In Happy Death Day, we meet sorority girl Tree (full name Theresa,

'The Babysitter' or 'Happy Death Day': Which Horror Flick to Watch This Friday the 13th

'The Babysitter' or 'Happy Death Day': Which Horror Flick to Watch This Friday the 13th
Think of it as a Choose Your Own Adventure, but your only options are dying in a slasher or at the hands of a Satanic cult. All Hallows' Eve means ghouls and goblins, vampires and probably more Stranger Things kids this year, right? It’s also prime time for regulation hotties to try to survive a horror movie. And this Friday the 13th, you have two to choose from: The Babysitter and Happy Death Day, both out now.

For the Netflix and chills crowd, there's The Babysitter, which landed on the streaming platform at the stroke of midnight. The titular sitter is Bee (played by Aussie Samara Weaving), a Daisy Dukes-wearing, Star Trek-loving Manic Pixie Dream Senior. It's no wonder her charge, 12-year-old Cole (Judah Lewis), is hopelessly in love with her.

Bee also, y'know, dabbles in the occult and has a small deal with the devil, which Cole learns when he stays up past his bedtime

Interview: Director Christopher Landon on the Challenges of Happy Death Day

  • DailyDead
Arriving in theaters today is Happy Death Day, the latest from filmmaker Christopher Landon that follows a young woman (Jessica Rothe) who must live out her own demise again and again in hopes of unlocking the puzzle to her untimely death. Landon, who has been at the helm of some great genre films like Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones and Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse, delivers yet another unique cinematic experience with his latest effort.

Daily Dead spoke with Landon at the recent press day for Happy Death Day, where he discussed bringing this project to Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions and collaborating with them on the horror comedy. Landon also chatted about the challenges they faced during production, as well as his thoughts on working closely with Rothe on her unusual character.

Great to speak with you, Chris. Let’s start off by discussing this script and what you saw in it originally.

Happy Death Day – Review

There are certain stereotypes and tropes that have existed in the horror genre for decades. In the 80s, the slasher genre made popular the idea of a masked killer stalking a group of teenagers. As often was the case, a “final girl” was left as the killer’s last victim, being forced to do battle and reveal to the audience who has been picking off her friends one by one.

Sure, it’s formulaic, but the concept spawned hundreds of films and continues to inspire modern filmmakers to put their own spin on the sub-genre. Powerhouse production company Blumhouse has hired Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) to breathe life into their own clever take on the slasher film with Happy Death Day. Instead of a group of kids each facing their individual demise, you have one girl standing in the place of them all. How, do you ask?

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'

Blumhouse Makes a Wish for Another #1 Opener with 'Happy Death Day'
It's been a good year for Blumhouse Productions so far with Get Out and Split delivering impressive returns on minuscule budgets. This weekend their latest, Happy Death Day, hopes to follow suit as it targets a #1 finish, pushing WB's Blade Runner 2049 into runner-up position after just one week in theaters. Additional new releases include Stx's The Foreigner, Annapurna's Professor Marston & the Wonder Women and Open Road's Marshall as there's a little something for everyone in theaters, though it doesn't appear that little something will deliver big numbers at the box office collectively. On the heels of a very strong year so far, Blumhouse brings Happy Death Day to 3,149 theaters nationwide. The film takes the Groundhog Day concept and turns it into a horror film with Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones director, Christopher Landon, at the helm. Industry expectations are for a debut in the mid-teens, though we're anticipating a result just a bit higher.

‘Happy Death Day’ Trailer Repeats a Killer Birthday Celebration

Jessica Rothe is ready to live, die, repeat in Happy Death Day, the latest stab at youth-oriented horror from Blumhouse. Looking like a giddy combination of Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, the Final Destination series and a few generic slasher movies tossed in for good measure, Happy Death Day follows a young woman named Tree (just go with it), played by Rothe, who keeps re-living the same day over and over again. As if that weren’t annoying enough to begin with, it also happens to be the day in which she’s murdered by a masked killer. The only apparent way to get out of the loop is to stop the murderer once and for all.

Directed by Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones helmer Christopher Landon, Happy Death Day also stars Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews and Charles Aitken. See if you can survive the Happy Death Day trailer,

Trailer Watch: A Woman Re-Lives Her Murder in “Groundhog Day”-esque “Happy Death Day”

Happy Death Day

Groundhog Day” is serving as major inspiration for a second time this year. Ry Russo-Young’s “Before I Fall” saw its teen protagonist re-living the day she died — and reevaluating how she lived her life — and now “Happy Death Day” is offering a slasher take on the classic 1993 Bill Murray comedy. A trailer has been released for the horror film, which follows a college student on her birthday — which turns out to also be her death day. But her story is far from over.

Tree (Jessica Rothe, “Mary + Jane,” “La La Land”) is murdered on her birthday, but she wakes up and is forced to re-live the day. Things are exactly the same as the day prior — except for the fact that she remembers everything that happened, including her murder. No one else remembers anything. It’s her birthday and death day all over again.

“Look, I know this isn’t going to make any sense. I feel like I’m losing my mind. I’ve already lived through this day,” says Tree in the spot. “Somebody’s going to kill me tonight.”

No matter what Tree does, her birthday concludes the same way: with her being murdered by a masked figure. Then she wakes up, and is forced to re-live the day — and her murder.

“The way I see it, you have [an] unlimited amount of lives,” her friend says. “Unlimited opportunities to solve your own murder.”

So Tree will keep dying until she can figure out who her killer is.

Roth has a number of projects in the works, including Rachel Goldenberg’s “Valley Girl” musical remake and Bethany Ashton Wolf’s “Forever My Girl,” a romance about high school sweethearts, missed opportunities, and the lure of fame.

Happy Death Day” is directed by Christopher Landon (“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”) and will hit theaters just in time for Halloween, Friday October 13.

It's a horror-themed Groundhog Day as one poor girl gets trapped in a time loop. Here's the intriguing new trailer for Happy Death Day...

Blumhouse, the low-budget film production company that rakes in maximum cash for scares, is back again with a brand new horror flick.

Happy Death Day will be arriving just in time for Halloween, naturally, on October 20th, and only time will tell if this new film will be as big a hit for the 'House as their other offerings from the last few years, which include Get Out, Split, The Gift, the underrated Unfriended and the Oscar-nominated Whiplash.

Judging by this trailer, though, all signs point to a big fat yes. Take a look...
