The Amusement Park Trailer Brings George A. Romero's Lost Classic to Shudder This Summer
Shudder has released the official trailer for The Amusement Park, a long-lost movie directed by late horror legend George A. Romero. While most fans typically know Romero best for Night of the Living Dead and his subsequent zombie movies, not everyone is aware of The Amusement Park, which was made in the early 70s but withheld from a wide release until recently. You can watch the trailer below.

The little-seen movie will headline Shudder's Summer of Chills a line-up of new premieres hitting the horror streaming service every week. Some of the other titles on the way include Caveat, an eerie, slow-building, cat-and-mouse thriller; The Boy Behind the Door, from Justin Powell and David Charbonier making their directorial debut; and the SXSW favorite Jakob's Wife, starring horror icon Barbara Crampton as a housewife turned hungry vampire.

Rlje Films Picks Up Ted Bundy Dramatic Thriller ‘No Man Of God’ Ahead Of Tribeca Film Festival Premiere
Exclusive: AMC Networks’ Rlje Films has taken North American rights to the Elijah Wood and Luke Kirby dramatic thriller No Man of God, based on real transcripts and conversations between serial killer Ted Bundy and FBI agent Bill Hagmaier. The deal for the Amber Sealey-directed feature went down ahead of the pic’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere in June. The pic is now scheduled to hit theaters in August.

In 1980, Bundy (Kirby) was sentenced to death by electrocution. In the years that followed, he agreed to disclose the details of his crimes, but only to one man, that being Hagmaier (Wood). Aleksa Palladino and Robert Patrick also star in the Kit Lesser-scripted feature.

No Man of God was produced by Wood, Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen and Kim Sherman. Ward and Jess De Leo of Rlje Films negotiated the deal with Whalen and Stacy Jorgensen on behalf of Company X/SpectreVision and the filmmakers.

‘Jakob’s Wife’: Travis Stevens’ Feminist Vampire Tale Is A B-Movie Done Right [Review]

‘Jakob’s Wife’: Travis Stevens’ Feminist Vampire Tale Is A B-Movie Done Right [Review]
Travis Stevens’ “Jakob’s Wife” is a film about a universal fear and the horror of becoming a housewife. Built on a clever premise, the film is executed seamlessly. It’s a great example of a B-movie done right: resilient and resourceful, with more ideas than special effects. Stevens creates a thoughtful and very relatable world in “Jakob’s Wife,” a spooky story about what happens when your spouse sucks the life out of you.

The Nun 2 Star Teases Valak's Return to The Conjuring Universe: I Light a Candle Every Day
We haven't heard any official updates on The Nun 2 in quite some time.

Bonnie Aarons is currently promoting her latest movie Jakob's Wife, which is out now. During a recent interview, she was asked about The Nun 2. While Aarons couldn't provide any concrete updates, she expressed her strong desire to return to the role, as well as her confidence in Warner Bros. and New Line to get the next chapter in the franchise right. Here's what she had to say about it.

[Indie Horror Month 2021] Women of Indie Horror: Barbara Crampton

[Indie Horror Month 2021] Women of Indie Horror: Barbara Crampton
Barbara Crampton is the queen of indie horror. Gracious and humble as she is, it’s a title she would most likely reject. These are precisely among the qualities that make her an icon: she’s a leader in the industry who makes it a point to bring others up, a gigantic star too nice to ever act like one. She’s the absolute best and deserves to be celebrated not just during #IndieHorrorMonth, but all year long.

From her earliest genre performances in movies like Re-Animator, Chopping Mall, and From Beyond, there was something special about Crampton. She could lend gravity and empathy to even the most outrageous scenario, from the notorious decapitated head scene in Re-Animator to the giant robot battles of Full Moon’s Robot Wars, to which she brings energy and spunk worthy of Marion Ravenswood. She could be a Bdsm-clad mad scientist in From Beyond

During the interview, Stevens discussed trying to defy expectations for his directorial follow-up to The Girl on the Third Floor, his experiences collaborating with his cast, the evolution of Barbara Crampton, and more.

Obviously, Barbara’s character is the heart of this story. But I really have to give props to Larry in this as well. I think they're both so brilliant together

Katrina Bowden Killer Shark Horror Film ‘Great White’ Gobbled Up by Shudder, Rlje Films (Exclusive)

Katrina Bowden Killer Shark Horror Film ‘Great White’ Gobbled Up by Shudder, Rlje Films (Exclusive)
Rlje Films and the horror streamer Shudder have acquired the North American rights to “Great White,” a horror film about a killer shark starring “30 Rock” actress Katrina Bowden.

“Great White” is a horror, thriller and supernatural genre film written by Michael Boughen (“Dying Breed”) and directed by Martin Wilson in his feature debut. Rlje Films will release it theatrically this summer, and Shudder will premiere it on its platform later this year.

In “Great White,” a blissful tourist trip turns into a nightmare when five seaplane passengers are stranded miles from shore. In a desperate bid for survival, the group tries to make it to land before they either run out of supplies or are taken by a menacing terror lurking just beneath the surface.

Bowden (“Piranha 3Dd”) stars in “Great White” alongside Aaron Jakubenko (“Tidelands”), Kimie Tsukakoshi (“Riptide”), Tim Kano (“Neighbours”) and Te Kohe Tuhaka.

The producers on “Great White” are Neal Kingston,

Why We’ll Be Watching Vampire Flick “Jakob’s Wife”

Why We’ll Be Watching Vampire Flick “Jakob’s Wife”
This should remind people of the show Santa Clarita Diet in some ways, apart from the fact that Drew Barrymore played a zombie in that show and Barbara Crampton is obviously playing an unsatisfied wife that becomes a vampire after taking a risk and meeting someone in a less than reputable, out of the way location. Just going from the trailer it would appear that this movie is largely about the life of a bored wife that is tired of not feeling anything in her marriage and needs something that will make her feel alive. That’s kind of ironic really

SXSW 2021 Review: Jakob's Wife, Keeping This Marriage Together Is Going To Be The Death Of Them

SXSW 2021 Review: Jakob's Wife, Keeping This Marriage Together Is Going To Be The Death Of Them
As anyone who has ever taken the plunge can attest to, keeping a marriage together is no simple task. The routines that comfort us in the beginning can start to feel like ruts after a while, and it is very easy to slip into roles that can erode away the kind of adventurous spirit that feeds new love and makes it exciting. Sometimes, as the wise man Freddie Mercury once said, you just want to break free. Director Travis Stevens' second feature, Jakob's Wife, explores the lengths to which a couple stuck in just such a rut will go to keep things together, and it gets more than a little messy. The Fedders, Pastor Jakob (Larry Fessenden) and homemaker Anne (Barbara Crampton), have reached a...

‘Jakob’s Wife’ Review: A Cheap and Cheerless Vampire Movie Knock-Off

‘Jakob’s Wife’ Review: A Cheap and Cheerless Vampire Movie Knock-Off
Low-budget necessity is often the mother of low-budget invention, but sadly not so much in Travis Stevens’ “Jakob’s Wife,” a thin, half-hearted reworking of the vampire mythos that can’t quite decide if it’s spoofy or serious, and doesn’t have the smarts to be both. While it’s theoretically promising to attempt a hybrid tone in which schlocky effects and spurting necks are offset by genuine psychological insight into the discontented life of a long-married small-town pastor’s wife, in practice, the impulses just cancel each other out, whittling down the movie’s stakes long before they’re plunged into anyone’s chest.

You can see, however, how the project might have attracted its chief draw, who is also ultimately its most underserved asset. Actress Barbara Crampton (who also produces) has been a horror icon since starring in 1985’s beloved cult horror-comedy “Re-Animator” and returned to the big
