    First Look: “THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH”

    Hammer’s return has proved fruitful. The James Watkins-directed, Daniel Radcliffe-starring haunter THE WOMAN IN BLACK was classically atmospheric and eerie in construction, and massively successful in release. While we await their next original offering, THE QUIET ONES this spring, the storied company has begun work on a sequel to THE WOMAN IN BLACK, one that remains in Eel Marsh House, but moves the frights to WWII.

    “ROOM 237″ Director to helm Horror Doc on Sleep Paralysis

    There’s a certain, singular quality to the work of Rodney Ascher. If you’ve seen his very buzzed and entrancing ROOM 237 (the doc about SHINING theories) or the short, eerie THE S FROM HELL, you know this. The concept then, of Ascher specifically taking on a doc meant to make us as uncomfortable as horror fiction and focusing on sleep paralysis and ensuing demonic visions. Sign us up to get freaked out.

    “THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE” (Comic Review)

    Few comics have left a cultural mark like SANDMAN. One of the first works to break out of the binds of “children’s entertainment,” this epic series helped re-define the possibilities of comic books. Following in the footsteps of the Alan Moore’s fantastic run on SWAMP THING, THE Sandman was released to an audience hungry for more esoteric and explorative tales of terror. Unlike earlier horror stories of schlocky monsters and ironic twists of fate, this new addition explored the darker side of humanity, delving into the depths of philosophy, magic, and madness, creating a tale that still resonates with readers almost 25 years later. To celebrate its upcoming silver anniversary in January, DC/Vertigo is giving the Sandman the reception of a lifetime, starting with a brand new, six-issue mini-series titled THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE.

    DeMonaco returns to the world of “THE PURGE” for sequel

    THE PURGE, the very successful, high concept horror thriller was a largely contained movie. Set inside the confusing house of a security system salesman, the film distilled the kind of gonzo premise of a 12-hour all-things-go window into a home invasion/siege movie with ill-explored class issues and spooky masks. Now, a sequel is underway with writer/director James DeMonaco returning. Will he take us out into the world of the New Founders of America?

    “DOCTOR SLEEP” (Book Review)

    In mid-career interviews, Stephen King was sometimes asked why he had never delivered a conventional sequel to any of his novels, outside of a few short stories and fleeting cross-referencing of characters and locations, like the fictional town of Castle Rock. King’s deflection at that time was to tease how he would often ponder the possibility of THE SHINING’s mini-medium Danny Torrance and FIRESTARTER sparkplug Charlie McGee growing up, getting married, and discovering just what sort of children might spring out of their union. King would then cut himself off and remark that his muse (or more properly, Fornit) was unlikely to lead him any further down that path, and so it stood for decades… until the release last month of DOCTOR SLEEP, a proper sequel to one of King’s best-loved properties, 1977’s THE SHINING.
