Godzilla 2 Will Have Old School Practical Monster Effects

Godzilla 2 Will Have Old School Practical Monster Effects
Godzilla 2 is finally shooting this summer after several years of impatient waiting. Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla divided fans, but it was successful at the box office and revived the franchise. It looks like director Mike Dougherty, who is taking over for the next installment, is looking to make some fans of the old-school Godzilla movies very happy. How, you may ask? Well, he is going to include some practical monster effects in Godzilla: King of Monsters.

Mike Dougherty took to his Twitter recently to answer some fan questions about the upcoming Godzilla sequel. Today, a fan asked with only a glimmer of hope if he was planning on including any practical monster effects in Godzilla 2. Dougherty didn't give a long-winded response, but he simply said, "yes." That is more than enough because now we know we will get to see some actual, physical creatures in Godzilla: King of Monsters,

Review: Don't Drink the Water—Gore Verbinski's "A Cure for Wellness"

  • MUBI
Jason Isaacs as Dr. Volmer in A Cure for WellnessIt starts with a whispered melody. It will send frissons of familiarity, of a kind of upsetting longing for clarity. You know that song the odd English girl is singing, but you can't place it. Neither can Lockhart (Dane DeHaan, who they might have called Lockjaw, as he can barely seem to spit his words out), which is what draws him into the guts of a mystery. And it draws the film into a slithering spiral, compels us to observe an autopsy of modern horror. What half-remembered giallo fugue is Gore Verbinski spooning up for us like medicine, pinioned to our chairs like one of the zombie patients in the film’s sinister clinic? A puzzle picture, a conspiracy thriller, a kind of baroque classical nightmare, A Cure For Wellness is too sturdy, busy and sure of itself to be much of a horror film.

Blu-ray Review: Creepshow 2 [Special Edition]

  • DailyDead
As a lifelong fan of the original Creepshow—one of the first R-rated horror movies I ever saw as a kid and still my favorite horror anthology of all-time—it has taken me years to come to terms with the fact that Creepshow 2 is not bad. In fact, it’s quite good at times. But because it failed to capture the lightning-in-a-bottle magic of the first film (I mean, you had George A. Romero, Stephen King, and Tom Savini all working at their peaks), I have always ignored the fact that there’s a lot to like in Creepshow 2, even if it does fall short of its predecessor’s greatness. Thankfully, Arrow’s new special edition Blu-ray helped put me in my place.

Based on three more stories by King, Creepshow 2 finds original director Romero trading in the director’s chair for screenwriting duties. Calling the shots

Pennywise Brings a Christmas Gift in New It Photo

Pennywise Brings a Christmas Gift in New It Photo
Some still aren't sure about Bill Skarsg&#229rd as the iconic Pennywise the Clown in next year's Stephen King adaptationIT, but anyone who has seen Netflix's Hemlock Grove has a sneaking suspicion that this creep will bring the right amount of menacing ghoul to the proceedings. Some are still out on the initial look of Pennywise, revealed earlier in the year. As an early Christmas gift, we have another look at the scary clown, and this time, Pennywise comes bearing a gift.

Pennywise's look is an homage to many different eras, and in the end, he comes across as slightly Victorian. He's very feminine, yet overtly male, calling Heather Ledger's Joker to mind, especially in the scenes where the Clown Prince dressed as a nurse. In an era ripe with Creepy clowns, the pure essence of evil is evident here, as Pennywise meanders menacingly through the dead grass, tempting children into his tender trap.

Pumpkinhead Reboot in the Works

One of cinema’s most vengeful creatures could be coming back to the big screen, as a Pumpkinhead reboot is currently in the works and could start filming as early as next year.

EW reports that Peter Block, executive producer of the Saw films, Holliston, Frozen, John Carpenter’s The Ward, and numerous other horror movies, has purchased the rights to the Pumpkinhead franchise that kicked off in 1988 with Stan Winston’s directorial debut and continued in three sequels (the latest one being 2007’s TV movie Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud).

Along with writer Nate Atkins, Block has put together a screenplay for a Pumpkinhead reboot (at this time titled Pumpkinhead) that has the same spirit of the first film without being a shot-for-shot remake.
