Spring brings warmer weather, longer days, and seasonal allergies to one and all, but it is also brings a healthy amount of horror films in the season of rebirth. While the fall is the traditional season for all things that go bump in the night, there are enough horror films in April and May to satisfy fans of all persuasions, whether you are in the mood for some highly anticipated remakes and reboots (Pet Sematary, Hellboy), ghostly women (The Curse of La Llorona), super-powered, evil children (Brightburn), stalkers (The Intruder, Ma), or giant lizards (Godzilla: King of the Monsters).
The new trailer for BrightBurn, a horror film directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) and produced by James Gunn, imagines a very different kind of “Man” (or boy) with “Super” powers. The footage certainly calls into question the sanity of well-intentioned couples who adopt children that can fly and possess both unnatural strength and heat vision!
The film is written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn and stars Elizabeth Banks, Jackson A. Dunn, David Denman, Gregory Allen Williams, Matt Jones, Meredith Hagner, and Steve Agee. read more
What if a baby from another world, despite the best efforts of his adopted parents, turned out to be a little twisted? This is the premise of BrightBurn, a horror film produced by James Gunn and written by Mark Gunn and Brian Gunn. Frequent James Gunn collaborator David Yarovesky (The Hive) will direct the film which stars Elizabeth Banks, Jackson A. Dunn, David Denman, Gregory Allen Williams, Matt Jones, Meredith Hagner, and Steve Agee.
The former director of Guardians of the Galaxy, Gunn actually started his career in the horror genre with 2006’s Slither. He also explored odd super heroes in 2010’s Super, so Gunn is no stranger to either genre, and his role as producer is sure to rub off on his brother (Brian) and cousin (Mark), as well as Yarovesky. read more
