John Carpenter & Jason Blum Partner for New HALLOWEEN

John Carpenter will executive produce a new Halloween film with Jason Blum and Blumhouse.  Malek Akkad (2007’s Halloween), with his Trancas banner, will also produce.   Blumhouse and Miramax are co-financing. 

Carpenter said “Thirty-eight years after the original Halloween, I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.”

Blum added, “Halloween is one of those milestone films that inspired everyone at our company to get into the world of scary movies. The great Malek Akkad and John Carpenter have ???a special place in the hearts of all genre fans, and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together.” read more

Horror Hunting! Edition #25

      Welcome to another chilly, snow-covered edition of Horror Hunting!.  As this winter continues to punish the Northeast for some unknown, undeserved reason, I think it’s appropriate to warm our thoughts with the splendor and magnificence of our favorite horror holiday of the year, Halloween!  We’ll also take a look back at a simpler time, when terror came from above as well as from within.  Remember when we were scared/hoping for a violent alien invasion of Earth?  Hopefully the much-rumored Independence Day sequel can install a little more of that soon, but in the meantime check out the collectable goodies lined up for you….. read more

Horror Hunting! Edition #17

Welcome to the first post-Halloween edition of Horror Hunting!, as we barrel into November.  Just because this special day for kids and horror freaks has passed, that doesn’t mean you can’t stay in the Halloween spirit!  To prove it, one of the items highlighted in this installment will ensure that it’s October 31st all year round in your dwelling.  The second collectable came to me as the family and I enjoyed a post-trick-or-treating viewing of the underrated ’80s flick The Monster Squad.  And away we go…… read more

Horror Hunting! Edition #13

Welcome to the latest edition of Horror Hunting!  October means two BIG things to horror fiends…..Halloween and (since 2010) zombies.  In case you haven’t heard (i.e. you don’t own a television, smart phone, computer with internet access or eyes/ears), the horror TV/comic juggernaut The Walking Dead returns to AMC this Sunday 10/14 for the beginning of its glorious fifth season of undead happenings and hijinks.  As a big fan, I am (predictably) adding a steaming pile of zombie spice to this installment of HH! with two tasty items that even the most hardcore Romero vs. Kirkman know-it-all would be psyched to own.  Whether you call them walkers, biters, lurkers, ghouls, stinkers or “things”, the undead occupy a large swath of real estate in the horror realm.  Check out these cool items while you can, because just like life (and un-death), time is indeed limited.  And of course, brace yourself…..the collectables these collectables kill get up and kill! read more
