In fact, TEMPLE (written by first-time scribe Matt Savelloni) officially begins today, with actor-turned-director John Stockwell (CHRISTINE as the former, TURISTAS as the latter) behind the camera. And now, Deadline reports that the film has locked in its cast, offering Wesley Snipes (BLADE 2, pictured above) , Anne Heche (I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER), Dave Annable (666 PARK AVENUE) and rising WWE star Seth Rollins to headline the fright flick!

  • Scream Factory Reveals Features, Release Date for 2-Disc “RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD” Blu-ray!

    ,

    An ’80s zombie movie that features bumbling supply warehouse employees, punk rock teenagers, a selfless coroner, a nude striptease, meta-humor, buckets of blood and a skeletal corpse kept together by corroded flesh; there simply isn’t anything like RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD. While the film remains a fan favorite for many, who’ve collected posters, soundtracks and any home video release available, some were unsure if Scream Factory’s upcoming RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD Blu-ray would be worth double dipping on the existing Blu release. Of course, Scream Factory put all worries to bed earlier today, as they’ve announced the full contents and cover art for their RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD HD reissue!

    ,

    After the second stellar season and the show’s San Diego Comic Con renewal, this writer has been excited to see what’s next for the third season of WGN America’s SALEM. While the show had previously air in the spring, the lack of news or promotional material spoke otherwise, and with several character’s left knocking at death’s door, no one was quite sure what would become of the fright series.

EVIL DEAD this fall, cementing in a Halloween week premiere date and unleashing the first teaser for the upcoming season!

  • Deaditorial: Negan, The Governor and “THE WALKING DEAD”‘s Villain Problem

    ,,

    THE WALKING DEAD set the stage for perhaps one of the most devastating episodes of horror television to date. Maggie, one of the most sympathetic characters of the show, was near death, with a pregnancy complication jeopardizing the lives of herself and her unborn child. The otherwise confident, selfless leader that is Rick Grimes was left a sweaty, shaken mess, humbled and emotionally compromised by an underestimated force. And almost every character had a “two days ‘till retirement” moment that would make their death bittersweet: Eugene’s Map, Abraham and Sascha’s decision to settle down, Carl’s armory chat with Enid, etc.

  • “THE HALLOW” (Blu-ray Review)

    ,,

    Back when this writer first experienced Corin Hardy’s THE HALLOW at the sorely-missed Stanley Film Festival, I felt as if I was in the midst of seeing a striking, master-class genre filmmaker on the rise. The careful twist on genre tropes, the engaging visual style, the inclusion of Irish mythology and the undeniably phenomenal marriage of practical and digital effects all pointed to one of the most promising feature debuts in recent memory, reminiscent of such contemporary horror masters Guillermo del Toro and Neil Marshall. Yet while the film picked up critical acclaim in its limited release via IFC Midnight last year, this writer hopes that Scream Factory’s new impressive new Blu-ray release will give horrorheads the monstrous goodness in stunning 1080p High Definition.

  • The Dreadful Ten: 10 Horror Movies That Deserved A Sequel!

    ,,

    When it comes to sequels, the horror genre can be a fairly mucky playground. On one hand, you have fright films with fantastic follow-ups, whether it be ALIENS, WRONG TURN 2 or HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II. On the other hand, you have the myriad indirect sequels that were churned out by rights-holders to make a quick buck; does anyone remember the sequels to AMERICAN PSYCHO, ROSEMARY’S BABY or CARRIE? And then there are the horror offerings that, for either commercial or logistical reasons, never received the sequel they truly deserved, and likely won’t ever will. So for this week’s Dreadful Ten, FANGORIA offers up ten macabre movies that deserved a frightening follow-up!
