Hellraiser: Judgment finds its new Pinhead

Hellraiser fans felt rather deflated a couple of weeks back when a new movie was announced with Doug Bradley – who famously played the role – not returning again to reprise his role. Well, it looks like we’ve got our new Pinhead.

Director Gary Tunnicliffe has announced that Paul T. Taylor (Sin City) will take on the iconic role, calling him, “a classically trained stage and film actor who brings a great physical presence and more than a hint of Peter Cushing and Ralph Fiennes. I can’t wait to get him bound in leather, gridded up and in front of the camera and on screens!”

Bradley publicly denounced the movie when it was announced, saying he had to sign a wavier just to read the script. Tunnicliffe responded via Facebook saying, “I was thrilled and excited to call Doug and let him know I was writing and directing Hellraiser:

10 Rubbish Horror Films With Decent Soundtracks

New Line Cinema

How do you know when a movie’s going to suck? When there’s a tie-in album full of previously released songs that aren’t in the film.

Corporations love soundtrack albums – they’re easy to compile, they’re usually best sellers and, best of all, they promote the movie. Which is all they’re meant to do.

In the 1980s, corporations started swallowing up movie studios and linking their products with the book, TV and music companies they already owned, beginning the practice known as “Synergy.” Saturation advertising in corporate-owned magazines and on TV shows had one message – see the movie, read the book, buy the soundtrack.

Synergy obeys a simple formula: obtain content, gather an audience then sit back and watch the cash roll in. It also reduces movies to little more than the filmed equivalent of the Happy Meal, but that is by the by.

10 Upcoming Sequels And Reboots That Will Destroy Your Faith In Cinema

Columbia Pictures

According to William Goldman, who won Oscars for writing Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid and All The President’s Men, there are three types of movies: those that aspire to quality and succeed, those that aspire to quality and fail, and those that were never meant to be any good at all.

The last group, Goldman claims, comprises “movies for which the pulse was either totally or primarily financial: rip-offs, spin-offs, sequels etc.” In other words, most of today’s pictures are about as creative and well intentioned as Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.

Executives that talk about rebooting this or reimagining that sound like Eskimos describing snow, using multiple words to describe the same thing. In the end, they only require two – ‘cash’ and ‘grab’.

There have, of course, always been sequels and remakes, and the world would be a poorer place without

Weekend Report: 'American Sniper' Adds $30 Million in Third Weekend

Weekend Report: 'American Sniper' Adds $30 Million in Third Weekend
American Sniper easily led the box office for the third weekend in a row, while the three new wide releases flopped with less than $18 million combined.American Sniper added $30.7 million, which fell just shy of a new record for Super Bowl weekend behind Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour ($31.1 million). Unfortunately, it was off 53 percent from last weekend, which suggests that the intense interest surrounding the movie has cooled off quite a bit. Still, that $30.7 million ranks 21st all-time among third weekends, and that's with a hand tied behind its back thanks to the Super Bowl.To date, American Sniper has earned $247.8 million, which ranks sixth among 2014 releases. It could still wind up becoming the highest-grossing movie from 2014 ahead of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay*Part 1, though that no longer seems guaranteed.Playing at 2,893 locations, Project Almanac flopped with $8.3 million. That's the second worst debut

Forecast: 'Sniper' Set to Three-Peat Over Super Bowl Weekend

Forecast: 'Sniper' Set to Three-Peat Over Super Bowl Weekend
For the third weekend in a row, American Sniper is going to easily take the top spot at the box office. Even with the Super Bowl monopolizing attention on Sunday, Sniper should still easily add at least $30 million over the three-day period.Among the weekend's new releases, found footage time travel movie Project Almanac should provide decent counterprogramming for teen moviegoers, while Black or White and The Loft will be lucky to earn a combined $10 million.Through 13 days in wide release, American Sniper has already earned $213.4 million. This weekend, it expands to an additional 180 locations, which brings its total count to 3,885; that's a new record for an R-rated movie, ahead of the record that Sniper set last weekend.On fantastic word-of-mouth, the movie dropped a very light 28 percent last weekend. With tough competition from the Super Bowl on Sunday, a similar drop this weekend is out of the question. Still,

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles | Review

After the Paramount logo appears on screen, the Nickelodeon logo is the next thing you see. After that, you see the one for Platinum Dunes, the production company owned by Michael Bay and responsible for the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hitcher, and the Friday the 13th remakes. As is true of the famous Disney castle logo or the scrolling comic book logo of the Marvel movies, these logo carries a certain amount of expectations of quality (or lack thereof) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles lives up to the mediocre expectations set by the Platinum Dunes and Nickelodeon brands.

Coming Soon To VOD – Cabin Fever: Patient Zero 6/26/14

Update: I’ve just been informed by a colleague that at least one of the aforementioned sequels is still slated for production, and release. There isn’t a lot of info available at this time, so we’ll keep you posted. Hopefully this is true.

The good news is, that a “prequel” to Cabin Fever is hitting VOD outlets in less than a month. The bad news is, Cabin Fever 2 left such a bad taste in some viewers’ mouths, that I have no idea if there is even any public interest in such a thing. I was one of the ones that was initially shocked by the badness of Cabin Fever 2, because it had a young but strong cast, and one of my favorite up-and-coming directors attached to the project. The studio intervened so much, though, that Ti West exited before it was even finished, and fought really hard(and

Platinum Dunes Will Attempt To Reboot The ‘Friday The 13th’ Horror Series For A Second Time

If at first you don’t succeed… There have been twelve films in the “Friday The 13th” franchise thus far. You know what Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes horror shingle did in 2009? They acquired rights to the series (like they have with horror franchises “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “A Nightmare On Elm Street,” “The Hitcher”) and basically hit reset, rebooting the series with “Friday The 13th” directed by Bay-reboot favorite Marcus Nispel (who helmed the “Conan the Barbarian” reboot for Millennium). What are they doing in 2014? A rebooting “Friday The 13th” yet again because their first attempt only grossed $65 million domestically with a worldwide gross of $91 million. Apparently that figure off a $19 million budget was just not enough profit. And so David Bruckner, who wrote and directed the “Amateur Night” segment of “V/H/S,” is in negotiations to direct, according to The Wrap. And it’s already dated for Friday,
