Lionsgate Moving Forward with CABIN IN THE WOODS 2
Lionsgate pulled in a modest $42 million domestically with Cabin in the Woods (2012) which is still a good return. Now Lionsgate has contacted writer/director Drew Goddard to see what he and Joss Whedon might have in store for us regarding a sequel. It may be hard to make a sequel with the events that transpire into the ending of the film, but we can definitely keep hopes high for some kind of a prequel. I don’t care what they do, all I want is to see more of the creatures/monsters from Cabin in the Woods. What do you think of this news?
Scared Kids Video - Is This Mean or Too Cute?
Watching this video with scared little kids should not be this funny but it is. You cannot help laughing when watching these small children get scared at watching themselves transform into a scary little beast via phone apps. I have to admit that these kids are incredibly cute, then they change into little devils, and it is like night and day. Leave us a comment below telling us which one was your favorite.
Nerdist Presents THE HIVE - Digital / VOD Release Date Details
Nerdist Presents The Hive (2015) is a very exciting horror thriller film with the potential to be good. Director David Yarovesky released a trailer a few weeks back, and I was thrilled to see the movie since. So far, I am hearing positive reviews about this film. The Hive released on iTunes, Google Play, Vimeo, Amazon, Playstation, and Microsoft Movies this September 28, 2015, while the On Demand releases on October 12, 2015. The Hive stars Gabriel Basso, Talitha Bateman, and Stephen Blackehart.
Morgan Creek Will Not Remake THE EXORCIST
Morgan Creek has took to their Twitter account to confirm that they will not be remaking The Exorcist (1973). The tweet was sent to the director of The Exorcist, William Friedkin. Maybe this is not going to be a remake but that does still leave open the possibility of some kind of Exorcist sequel.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter - Milla Jovovich / Ali Larter Set Photo
Milla Jovovich (Alice) and Ali Larter (Claire Redfield) shared a new set photo for Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) with the two girls in full costume. This picture confirms the return of Larter as Claire Redfield. Director Paul W.S. Anderson pushed back the theatrical release date to January 27, 2017, after a delayed production due to the unexpected pregnancy of the leading lady. No photo of Wentworth Miller yet, but I am sure that Jovovich will make that photo her next goal.

Bonus features are yet to be revealed, but we will post once details are released.

THE GIFT Blu-ray / DVD Release Date Details
Joel Edgerton‘s The Gift (2015) mystery thriller movie releases on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and on Demand this upcoming October 27, 2015, via Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. If you have not already heard of this movie, you have to see it. Joel Edgerton as Gordo delivers a very creepy/sinister performance. The Blu-ray / DVD comes with an alternate ending, deleted scenes, commentary from director Joel Edgerton, a darker side of Jason Bateman featurette, and karma for bullies featurette. Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall, and Joel Edgerton star in The Gift.
Poster Released for New Horror Movie Francesca
Director Luciano Onetti just released the new movie poster for Francesca (2015). Francesca will premiere at the Sitges Film Festival 2015 this October. At first glance, the poster looks playful but there are so many sinister visions hidden within. The poster is original and interesting, great work from the designer. Raul Gederlini, Silvina Grippaldi, Luis Emilio Rodriguez, and Gustavo D?Alessandro star in Francesca.
Guillermo del Toro PACIFIC RIM 2 Delayed Indefinitely!
What?! Pacific Rim 2/Pacific Rim: Maelstrom was chugging along well then bam, delayed indefinitely. So once again, visionary Guillermo del Toro has thought up of a terrific film that the film studios thinks is too large to make, similar to the Hellboy 3 news. The first Pacific Rim (2013) movie had an estimated $190 million budget and grossed an estimated $411 million worldwide. I guess this was not enough profit for the film studios to invest in continuing the Pacific Rim story, really? Film studios want to shell out less than $5 million and rake in $100 million in theaters alone. Don’t we all but quality demands financing. What happened to the DVD, VOD, and other sales? Greed and no vision. All in perspective, Legendary Pictures is gearing up to make a Godzilla vs King Kong movie so I bet they are going all out to make that movie, and they just do not want to spend more money right now.
A Christmas Horror Story - New Poster and Krampus Photo
Directors Steven Hoban (Darknet), Grant Harvey (She Made Me Do It), and Brett Sullivan (Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed) have released a new poster for their upcoming Christmas horror anthology movie A Christmas Horror Story (2015). I am sure this does not relate to the quality of the horror film, but this poster is terrible. There is way too much cartoonishness to Krampus (the Christmas demon) and Santa Claus. It looks like a horrible Sharknado art design. You can view the original poster and review here. Thankfully without the help of this recent poster, we are still encouraging you to watch this movie. George Buza, Percy Hynes White, Rob Archer, and William Shatner star in A Christmas Horror Story.
Stephen King's THE MIST TV Series in Development!
Master of Horror Stephen King is getting a lot of love from the film industry with another TV series in development, The Mist TV series. Dimension Television (Scream TV series) is developing the TV series with Christia Torpe writing. The series will merge the best from 1980 The Mist novel and the 2007 movie adaptation. Sources say that Stephen King is happy with what is going on and gave his blessings. The Wrap reported “the series will tell an original story about a seemingly innocuous mist that seeps into a small town but contains limitless havoc. From psychological terrors to otherworldly creatures, the mist causes the town residents’ darkest demons to appear forcing them to battle the supernatural event and, more importantly, each other.” I am stoked to see what develops but hope they do not drag on a series with fillers.

Jason Lei Howden‘s Deathgasm (2015) movie has a new poster released that is exciting and thrilling. Deathgasm releases in movie theaters and on VOD this upcoming October 2, 2015.

We may not see any sign of the showdown until the second Godzilla film releases in three years. How many of you want to see the epic rematch of Godzilla vs King Kong?
