January 1st, 2018 was such an exciting time for horror fans! Big projects were being announced, everyone was fired up about the upcoming Halloween movie, and conventions were beginning to announce some incredible guests. Just like The Legendary Criswell, I made a few predictions on that day about what we can expect in the world of horror in 2018, and I promised to revisit my premonitions in December. Well, here we are… so let’s see how I did!
Jordan Peele’s upcoming thriller Us has a new poster straight from Universal Pictures.
Starring Black Panther alumni Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke, Us has a growing cast with Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale) and Tim Heidecker (Ant-Man and the Wasp) and newly added members, Shahadi Wright Joseph (Hairspray Live!), Evan Alex (Mani), Madison Curry, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon (Friends) and Duke Nicholson.
The film’s synopsis is as follows: “A mother (Lupita Nyong’o) and a father (Winston Duke) take their kids to their beach house expecting to unplug and unwind with friends (including Elizabeth Moss). But as night descends, their serenity turns to tension and chaos when some shocking visitors arrive uninvited.” read more
Apparently, Jordan Peele has said ”Candyman” five times, as his reboot of the 1992 genre classic Candyman has officially been announced. According to Deadline, MGM and Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw will team on the project, which is being called a “spiritual sequel.” Nia DaCosta is already attached to direct a screenplay by Peele and Win Rosenfield, with Universal eyeing a June 12, 2020 release date.
The only details released so far is that the sequel returns to the neighborhood where the legend began: the now-gentrified section of Chicago where the Cabrini-Green housing projects once stood. read more
