How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’

How Hulu Horror Anthology ‘Into the Dark: The Body’s’ Tone Ranges From ‘Pulp Fiction’ to ‘Get Out’
When Paul Davis and Paul Fischer initially set out to expand their 2013 short film “The Body” into a feature, they did so on spec, not knowing Blumhouse was going to set a deal with Hulu for a monthly horror anthology series called “Into the Dark.” Although their story — about a hitman who is lugging the corpse of his latest victim on Halloween — lent itself perfectly to the holiday theme Blumhouse was going for and became “Into the Dark’s” premiere piece, there was one big change they wanted to make in the adaptation.

“The hitman, Wilkes, he got away with it in the short — he got pranked by a couple of guys that you thought were police officers, but were actually two guys dressed for Halloween, and they kind of sent him on his way, the joke’s on him, ha ha ha. But in this one, I said to myself,

Box Office: Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart’s ‘Night School’ Squashed ‘Smallfoot’ With $28 Million
Even an adorable Yeti was no match for the comedic team of Tiffany Haddish and Kevin Hart.

Universal’s comedy “Night School” topped the domestic box office with $28 million from 3,010 locations. Fellow newcomer “Smallfoot,” Warner Bros.’ animated family film, came in close behind with $23 million when it launched in 4,100 venues.

Though “Night School” came in on the lower end of initial projections from box office analysts, the PG-13 comedy is off to a good start considering

Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’

Film Review: ‘Hell Fest’
Eye candy without much to offer the brain or emotions, “Hell Fest” is a competently crafted slasher film rendered instantly forgettable by its disinterest in character, plot, and motivation, let alone original ideas. An early Halloween salvo, it will be gone from theaters before that holiday (or even the latest screen “Halloween”) arrives, but should in the short term satisfy that seasonal itch among horror fans before bigger, better fright-fests arrive.

After the obligatory prior-victim’s-fate prelude, we meet the film’s college student protagonists, who are young and cute but not much else. Natalie (Amy Forsyth) reunites with ex-roomie Bff Brooke (Reign Edwards) — the movie suggests there’s some reason why they haven’t seen each other for a while, but never gets around to explaining it — while less enthusiastically renewing acquaintance with Brooke’s irksome new flatmate Taylor (Bex Taylor-Klaus).

Nonetheless, all three are soon off to Hell Fest,

Box Office: Can Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s ‘Night School’ Best ‘Smallfoot’?

Box Office: Can Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s ‘Night School’ Best ‘Smallfoot’?
Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish are hoping that big laughs equal big bucks when “Night School” opens this weekend. Before the comedic duo can claim box office victory, however, they’ll have to fend off one adorable Yeti.

Universal’s “Night School” is eyeing a debut between $27 million and $35 million from 2,900 theaters. The film reunites Haddish with “Girls Trip” director Malcolm D. Lee and producer Will Packer. The PG-13 comedy finds Haddish playing an unorthodox teacher helping Hart get his Ged. If estimates hold, the launch of “Night School” looks to be on par with “Girls Trip’s” $30 million start. That raunchy comedy became a sleeper hit, grossing over $140 million worldwide off its $19 million budget. “Night School” has a slightly higher price tag at $29 million.

Hart has long been a box office draw, but “Night School” will test the star power of Haddish in her first lead role since breaking

The Happy Death Day Sequel Will Be Called Happy Death Day 2U and We Have a Release Date

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse are currently in production on the sequel to their hit horror film Happy Death Day. Today we’ve learned that the sequel will be called Happy Death Day 2U and it will be released on February 14th, 2019.

I walked into Happy Death Day thinking it was going to be a piece of crap film, but to my surprise it actually ended up being very entertaining. It was like a horror version of Groundhog Day and I actually enjoyed the movie a lot and I wouldn’t mind seeing how the story continues with a sequel.

Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard will be back to reprise their roles from the first movie and the original director Christopher Landon is also back at the helm.

There’s no information on the story for the sequel, but the first film centered on a character named Tree Gelbman, “a blissfully

Kirsten Howard Sep 26, 2018

Blumhouse has a Valentine's Day gift for us, with the sequel to Happy Death Day slashing its way into our hearts in February...

The Blumhouse empire of horror movies has another franchise on its hands, with confirmation of a Happy Death Day sequel coming earlier this year.

Christopher Landon, the man behind the first movie, is writing and directing the second. Whether he repeats the Groundhog Day-esque horror approach of the first remains to be seen, but Landon has hinted before that he may explain what caused the time loop in the first place. His star Jessica Rothe will also be returning as Tree, the popular student who had a bad day over and over again in the original film.

Happy Death Day 2U Slated for Release on Valentine’s Day in 2019

  • DailyDead
After enjoying a well-received run at the box office (bringing in more than $120 million globally), it was announced earlier this year that a sequel to Happy Death Day is moving forward at Blumhouse and Universal, and now the official title and release date have been revealed.

According to multiple sources, including Variety, the Happy Death Day sequel is officially titled Happy Death Day 2U, and it's slated to be released by Universal Pictures on Valentine's Day (February 14th) of 2019.

Deadline previously reported that the Happy Death Day sequel will feature the return of Jessica Rothe as Tree Gelbman, a college student who relived her own gruesome murder in a time loop on her birthday—a vicious cycle that stayed in motion until Rothe could either uncover her killer or die trying.

While most of the plot details for Happy Death Day 2U have yet to be unveiled, Variety reports that

Happy Death Day 2 Gets Official Title And Release Date

Though Paramount and Platinum Dunes had originally set Friday the 13th for release in October of 2017, the spooky corridor ultimately belonged to another horror title: Happy Death Day.

Blumhouse and Christopher Landon’s sleeper hit pulled the best bits from films like Groundhog Day and Scream and wrapped them all up in a very entertaining package – even if the final product proved to be a bit too familiar for some. Still, Happy Death Day exceeded all expectations at the box office, bringing in over $100 million on a production budget of just $4.8 million. Not bad, right?

That’s an impressive turnaround in and of itself, and to no surprise, it means that we’re now getting a sequel. Yes, Happy Death Day 2 is on the way and today, Blumhouse handed the project both an official title and release date. For starters, they revealed that from here on out, it’ll

Universal Reveals ‘Happy Death Day’ Sequel Title
Blumhouse and Universal Pictures are throwing another slasher birthday rager following the success of 2017’s “Happy Death Day.”

The film’s original lead, Jessica Rothe, will return in the newly titled “Happy Death Day 2U” when it hits on the previously announced date of Valentine’s Day 2019.

Christopher Landon is back as writer and director with Jason Blum producing. Angela Mancuso, John Baldecchi, and Samson Mucke (“Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”) serve as executive producers.

Plot details are under wraps, though a synopsis said Rothe will discover that “dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.”

The first followed young co-ed Tree (Rothe) who awakens from a one-night stand and slinks off into a daylong birthday celebration, only to be brutally murdered at a party that evening. Instead of the afterlife, however, she reawakens once again the stranger’s bed and is forced to

Red-Band Trailer For The Horror-Themed Amusement Park Serial Killer Thriller Hell Fest

A serial killer is on the loose and brutally murdering people in a horror-themed traveling amusement park in this new red-band trailer for Hell Fest. What makes this film so interesting is that the people who are being hunted down think that all of these killings are fake and all part of the show... at first. Then reality kicks in and they are fighting to survive!

I like the concept of this movie because it's something that I think a lot of us may have thought about while going to these fun and creepy Halloween attractions every year. What if a demented killer went on a killing spree in one of these settings?

The movie stars Amy Forsyth, Reign Edwards, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Christian James, Roby Attal, Matt Mercurio and Tony Todd, and here's the synopsis:
