Oliver Jackson-Cohen Nabs Title Role in ‘Invisible Man’

According to a report on Deadline, The Haunting of Hill House actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen has landed the lead role in Universale/Blumhouse’s The Invisible Man. Jackson-Cohen joins an already impressive cast which consists of Elisabeth Moss, Storm Reid, Aldis Hodge, Sam Smith and Harriet Dyer.

Even though The Invisible Man will be distributed through Universal it will not be a part of their Dark Universe. Universal had hoped to shape a cinematic universe based on the beloved classic monsters but its initial entry The Mummy, which starred Tom Cruise stumbled out of the gate and crashed hard enough to wipe out the entire Dark Universe idea. Despite the film being the biggest global opening for Tom Cruise, Deadline estimated that the film lost the studio $95 million. read more

Rob Zombie Releases Full-Length Trailer for ‘3 From Hell’

Rob Zombie has just dropped highly anticipated trailer for 3 From Hell, the sequel to House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. The film sees the surprising return of Captain Spaulding (Sid Haig), Otis (Bill Moseley) and Baby (Sheri Moon Zombie), after what was seemingly their last hurrah at the end of The Devil’s Rejects.

A Look Back at…’The Lost Boys’!

In the sweltering heat of summer, on July 31st of 1987, the eightiest of eighties vampire films was unleashed upon the world. Directed by Joel Schumacher, who was fresh off of the “Brat Pack” coming-of-age film St. Elmo’s Fire, The Lost Boys made 32.2 million dollars on a budget of 8.5 and also made scores of girls love vampires long before Edward Cullen hit the scene.

The Beginning…

Recently divorced Lucy is moving her and her children Michael (Jason Patric) and Sam (Corey Haim) to the coastal California town Santa Carla to stay with her father for a while. Only referred to as Grandpa (and Dad) throughout the film, folks may recognize veteran actor Barnard Hughes from 1982’s Tron. The film opens with a pan-in shot of a boardwalk full of games and rides and a group of rock-star dressed youths fucking around on a carousel. Then a quick cut to Lucy, Michael, Sam and Nanook (the pup) driving to Grandpas. The group passes the “Welcome to Santa Carla” sign and Michael notices that someone has spray-painted Murder Capital of the World” on the back of it – that’s not creepy at all. Cue Echo & the Bunnymen’s ‘People are Strange’ cover. read more
