Teaser Trailer Drops for YouTube Red’s “Cobra Kai”

No, it’s not horror. Hell, it’s not even in the vicinity of it…but I am a huge sucker for nostalgia and not much hits me harder in the feels than a little Daniel-san and Johnny Lawrence Karate Kid-style beef!

This past summer, YouTube Red announced that a show was in the works for their streaming channel that featured William Zabka and Ralph Macchio back in their roles oh Johnny and Daniel in a show aptly titled Cobra Kai. The show would feature a down on his luck Johnny re-opening the legendary Cobra Kai dojo 30 years after it closed down when he lost to Daniel and his sensei John Kreese was disgraced at the tournament. read more read more

FANGORIA Magazine Set to Return in Time for Halloween

Once the reigning king of horror rags, Fangoria hasn’t delivered a print magazine since October 2015’s issue #344. Every kid who was into horror from the 80’s on, grew up with clippings and torn-out pages of Fango on their walls; you couldn’t even see the paint on my walls in between all of those colorful pages of gore (and Slayer posters, of course).

Well, long-time Fangoria managing editor Mike Gingold posted a rather interesting video of a copy of Fango being delivered through a mailslot with the simple tagline, “exciting news will be coming soon…” read more read more

Hilary Duff Releases First Selfie of Herself as Sharon Tate for New Film

On August 8, 1969, that wacky Manson family descended upon the Hollywood home of film director Roman Polanski and his 8-month pregnant wife Sharon Tate and left no soul inside the home alive. Nearly 50 years later, people are still fascinated by the crimes committed by Charles Manson’s followers and just to prove it, a new movie is being made starring Hillary Duff as the late Sharon Tate.

The Haunting of Sharon Tate is inspired by an actual quote from Tate, from an interview published a year before her death, wherein she reveals having dreams about ghosts haunting her house and foreseeing her own death at the hands of a satanic cult, according to a story by Deadline. read more read more

David Moscow’s ‘Desolation’ Starts 2018 With a Bang!

I love it when a film reaches right out at the start and grabs you tightly by the balls; David Moscow’s Desolation does just that. That firm grip eases somewhat as we’re introduced to motel-worker Katie (Dominik Garcia-Lorido) and her coworker/friend Debbie who are chatting it up about a cute actor guy staying at the hotel. The cute guy is Jay (Brock Kelly) who is apparently sort of a big deal in Hollywood and while Debbie is obviously the most interested, it’s Katie that Jay takes a liking to. read more read more

The Trailer for ‘Hellraiser: Judgment’ is Here

In 1987 Clive Barker and his cenobites had “such sites to show you” in the iconic film Hellraiser. Thirty-one years and now ten films later,  Gary J. Tunnicliffe wants to show you why “Evil Seeks Evil” in his latest film Hellraiser: Judgment.

It’s been quite a rough ride for the Hellraiser franchise which has been on a downward spiral ever since Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth and then perfectly flat-lining with the Doug Bradley-less Hellraiser: Revelations in 2011. Tunnicliffe who wrote, but did not direct, the dismal Hellraiser: Revelations, told 60 Minutes With that, “I knew what I wanted to make, and I felt like ‘you know what, I wrote a traditional Hellraiser story with Revelations and I got raped by the fans. I’m not going to try and appease the fans anymore.’ I’m going to make a film for me and I have a very strong idea visually on where I want to go with the story and its going to be very different. I’m going to make a food for me and offer everybody a bite.” read more read more

‘Winchester’ Gets a New Trailer and a New Name

Back in October we bought you news and the teaser trailer for Winchester: The House that Ghosts Built (see that story here) starring Helen Miren as Sarah Winchester. Well now, a month before its theatrical release, comes the full trailer and word that they’ve shortened the title to just Winchester. Makes sense…rolls off the tongue a bit easier, I suppose.

Slated for a February 2nd release, Winchester tells the story (based on factual events) of the famed “Winchester Mystery House” and its construction by widow Sarah Winchester of Winchester Firearms fame. read more read more

“Are You Afraid of the Dark” Gets a Release Date

Most horror fans will remember the Nickelodeon show from the early-to-mid 90’s, Are You Afraid of the Dark. A group of teens who referred to themselves as “The Midnight Society” would meet up in the woods and each week one would tell a different scary story by starting off with, “submitted for the approval of The Midnight Society, I call this story…”.

Well on October 11, 2019 Paramount will deliver their feature-length version of the well-loved series. The story is being written by Gary Dauberman, most recently known for co-writing the massive success film It as well as Anabelle and Anabelle:Creation. read more read more
