The iconic werewolf movie, which starred one of the genres most legendary actresses, Dee Wallace, also featured John Carradine, Belinda Balaski and Robert Picardo. The film has remained a beloved staple of the werewolf sub-genre over the last three decades.
Penned by best-selling author and Blizzard Entertainment veteran, Micky Neilson, the comic series The Howling: Revenge of the Werewolf Queen will be a four-part mini-series and pick where the 1981 film left off.

This past weekend at Sony’s Playstation Experience 20016, the latest trailer for Resident Evil 7: Biohazard was released. Revealing only a few new plot twists, such as the name of the main character “Ethan,” the tease was enough for gamers who are anxiously awaiting the next installment in one of the most successful video game franchises ever.
Since 1996, Capcom’s survival horror game has been a staple even in all gamers collections, and became the zombie game that defined the genre. From the looks of it, this game is as creepy and intense as it ever was and may be even gorier this time around. The sneak peek that emerged this weekend is just the latest glimpse into the next chapter into what looks to be one of the darkest Resident Evil chapters yet. With Resident Evil 6 garnering Capcom $6.5 million in sales, I don’t expect the franchise to slow down anytime soon. read more read more
Hitting theaters this week from Blumhouse Entertainment, WWE Studios, and director Brad Peyton is Incarnate, starring Aaron Eckhart and Clarice van Houten.
The highly anticipated possession tale centers around Dr. Seth Ember, played by Eckhart, with an unimaginable ability to crawl into the minds of those possessed. He is called upon by the Vatican to help 11- year- old Cameron, played by David Mazouz, before he is completely consumed by the demon. Sound familiar? Maybe. However, horror fans always love a good exorcism and by the looks of the new clip that just arrived today through MTV, Incarnate seems to breathe new life into a the demonic child filmscape. In general, horror fans always been terrified with the monster and child dynamic ever since Frankenstein met up with the little girl at the pond in 1931. By the looks of the new clip, Cameron versus the demon appears to be a bit more ferocious. read more read more

MTV’s series adaptation of Wes Craven’s classic, Scream, has been renewed for an abbreviated third season, consisting of only 6 episodes. This news hits just before the Scream Halloween two-hour special.
Returning in 2017, it is unclear as to whether or not the third season will be the final for the show. With viewership down by almost half for the second season from the first, MTV is once again changing up showrunners, replacing Michael Gans and Richard Register with someone yet to be announced. For fans this news is probably met with mixed feelings. While the show will return, it appears that the fate of the show seemingly hangs in the balance. I must admit, I personally was not expecting this show to be as well done and engrossing as it is. It would be a shame to see this one go since it’s the best non- reality show on MTV since, well…since they actually played music videos. read more read more
