Kyle Richards Returning to ‘Halloween Kills’ Brian Andrews Will Not

For those wondering whatever became of Kyle Richards who played Lindsey Wallace, the little girl from 1978’s Halloween, well she grew up to be stunning and is actually on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Entertainment Weekly has confirmed that the actress will return to the series to reprise her role in Halloween Kills which is set to terrorize theaters on October 16, 2020. The following year Halloween Ends hits the big screen on October 15, 2021.

At least one of the kids under Laurie Strode’s care is set to return to the franchise. The other child in the film, Tommy Doyle was played by Brian Andrews and it seems as if he will not return to the franchise as Anthony Michael Hall is set to take on that role. Paul Rudd played an adult Tommy Doyle in 1995’s Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. read more

Phil “CM Punk” Brooks- the retired WWE professional wrestler and current UFC/CFFC mixed martial artist- has turned his attention toward a new arena: the world of screen acting.

Full Length ‘AHS: 1984’ Trailer Celebrates 80s Slasher Genre

Continuing the surprisingly resilient love affair with the 1980s, the first full length trailer for American Horror Story: 1984 (premiering on Sept. 18) lands drenched in MTV fashions and Friday the 13th aesthetics.

The threadbare premise sees Cody Fern, Billie Lourd, Emma Roberts, Gus Kenworthy, and a full cast of photogenic campers and counselors head to a Crystal Lake stand-in summer camp…and you can imagine the rest.  And instead of a crazy mother or disfigured, hockey mask wearing son, those crazy teens will have to stop playing Pitfall and keep an eye out for renowned serial killer, Mr. Jingles (not to be confused with 90s killer dentist Mr. Giggles, which will probably be the inspiration for next season’s AHS: 92). read more

James Wan Horror Feature Adds George Young and Jake Abel to Cast

This just in, reports from Variety and Deadline confirm British film star George Young (Grace, A Bread Factory, Containment) will be starring as the male lead opposite Annabelle Wallis (The Loudest Voice, Annabelle) in James Wan’s upcoming secret horror movie which is under the working title Silvercup.

In addition, casting has continued to expand with Percy Jackson and Supernatural alum Jake Abel signing on.

The film, which has a plot being kept tightly under wraps, is based on a story by Wan and Ingrid Bisu, who starred in The Nun and recently got engaged to the 42-year-old Australian director. Wan will also produce the film through his Atomic Monster banner alongside Michael Clear. The film is being financed through Starlight Media and Midas Innovation, who will distribute in China as New Line handles the remaining distribution. read more

‘Ready or Not’ Finishes in Sixth Place in Weekend Box Office Race

Despite all of the hype and positive word-of-mouth and critical reception, Ready or Not wasn’t completely ready to dominate the box office this weekend, finishing in sixth place in what has been a particularly underwhelming season for horror films.

Ready or Not brought in a total of $7.5 million over the 3 day weekend, and $10.5 million since its debut on Tuesday night.  Fox Searchlight tried their best to capture audience attention before the weekend began (and Ready or Not is their widest release ever with 2,855 screens), but the film couldn’t muster enough momentum after the early start, even with the highest Cinemascore for a horror movie this summer (B+) and a current score of 87% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.   Ready or Not may find a larger audience on home video platforms, but the bride as “Most Dangerous Game” tale (which surprisingly avoided the scrutiny of President Donald Trump and others, even though it bears many similarities to the recently cancelled Universal film, The Hunt) will be lucky to end its cinematic run with anything north of $25 million. read more

Rob Zombie Releases Official Poster for ‘3 From Hell’

Rob Zombie took to his official web site today to unveil something 3 From Hell fans have long been waiting for: the movie’s official poster art!

The writer/director’s message is short and sweet, and it cuts right to an image that eerily evokes the original teaser poster art of the film’s predecessor, The Devil’s Rejects:

“Dig the official poster for 3 FROM HELL!”

Fans of the franchise will quickly notice that Sid Haig is not featured on the new poster art alongside Bill Moseley and Sheri Moon Zombie. Instead, Richard Brake’s character- a newcomer named Foxy- stands beside the two. How Haig’s fan-favorite character, Captain Spaulding, fits into the events of the film remains to be seen. read more

First Trailer for Scott Cooper and Guillermo del Toro’s ‘Antlers’ Released

The first trailer for director Scott Cooper and producer Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming film Antlers provides fans with just enough to whet their appetites in what appears to be a old-fashioned creature feature, infused with modern issues of neglect and bullying.

This is Cooper’s first foray into the horror genre, but the director is no stranger to high tension and drama in such films as the crime story Black Mass and 2017’s western, Hostiles.

The film’s screenplay was written by C. Henry Chaisson & Nick Antosca and Scott Cooper, and based on the short story “The Quiet Boy” by Antosca.  The cast includes Keri Russell, Jesse Plemons, JT Corbitt, Graham Greene, Scott Haze, Rory Cochrane, Amy Madigan read more
