  • Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s “PREDATOR” Isn’t a Reboot/Remake

    How do you overcome such dreaded words as remake and reboot? We found out this week when a new PREDATOR film was announced with Shane Black at the helm and his MONSTER SQUAD’s Fred Dekker co-writing. Getting the filmmakers separately responsible for the likes of LETHAL WEAPON, KISS KISS BANG BANG and NIGHT OF THE CREEPS back together (they co-write SQUAD) seemed to far outweigh any sort of apprehension at intentions to restart the story of the beloved hunter alien. But more good news has come down, as Black reveals he isn’t interested in a reboot.

  • First Posters: Aubrey Plaza in Zombie Comedy “LIFE AFTER BETH”

    LIFE AFTER BETH is a horror-comedy that charts the ill-fated trajectory of reconnecting with an ex, but with zombies. It’s very funny, with an amazing turn from star Aubrey Plaza. It’s grosser than you might think, especially after laying eyes on the first posters, which play up its stars and the film’s indie, dark comedy vibe.

  • New Trailer for “TWIN PEAKS” Blu Set Reveals Nuttiest Special Feature

    For many, TWIN PEAKS: THE ENTIRE MYSTERY is the home video event of 2014. A 10-disc set featuring the entire series restored, as well as David Lynch’s amazing prequel film FIRE WALK WITH ME and its long sought after 90 minutes of deleted footage, plus interviews, outtakes and more is exactly what admirers and fans have been hoping for. A new trailer, boasting upgraded footage comparisons and just how special much of the lost material is (Log Lady intros!) is certainly appetite whetting, but it’s also revealing of what might be the set’s biggest and nuttiest surprise.

  • Release Details: Mondo & Bleeding Skull! Unleash Unreleased Slasher “CARDS OF DEATH” on VHS

    1986′s CARDS OF DEATH is a lost work of trash horror.

    Spike Lee Has Remade “GANJA & HESS” with “DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS”

    In 2013, the great Spike Lee turned to Kickstarter ostensibly to help fund a film with little commercial interest. Titled DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS, the picture was given an intriguing, vague synopsis that hinted at a story of vampirism. It read, “A film about human beings who are addicted to blood. It’s a new kind of love story (and not a remake of “Blacula”). It has however, ended up a remake of something else entirely: Bill Gunn’s hallucinatory addiction fable, GANJA & HESS.

  • Trailer: DTV Action Heroes Lundgren and Adkins Team for Monster Movie “LEGENDARY”

    Dolph Lundgren previously teamed with Scott Adkins, the noble star of a contemporary wave of better-than-expected DTV action (NINJA: SHADOW OF A TEAR) on the strange, savage UNIVERSAL SOLIDER: DAY OF RECKONING. Here, they meet again as adversaries who must take on a large, aquatic predator in LEGENDARY, and hopefully get a leg up on the current glut of poorly constructed, overly winking monster movies in the process.

  • Final “APES” Trailer: In Which Caesar Fires A Machine Gun From Atop a Horse

    Again, there are many reasons to look forward to DAWN OF THE PLANET OF THE APES. Its unexpectedly good predecessor, for one. The rest are laid out beautifully in this final theatrical trailer. An epic scope from director Matt Reeves, an empathetic community of stunningly realized apes, for two and three. Fourth, the tease of but one tense, playful-turned vicious ape encounter. But really, above all, remains Caesar, sitting gallantly atop a horse and bursting through fire while unloading a machine gun. Feast your eyes, below.
