Nicolas Cage in 'Pay the Ghost' Photo
Nicolas Cage has joined Uli Edel‘s Pay the Ghost movie. Check out the movie still photo as Cage gets “handled” by the female ghost. This vengeful ghost abducts children and only Cage can stop her. I cannot wait to see the trailer to get a better idea of how this movie looks. Also starring in Pay the Ghost are Sarah Wayne Callies, Veronica Ferres and Lyriq Bent.
'It' Remake Casts Will Poulter as Pennywise the Clown
Stephen King‘s It Remake is pushing forward and it has been confirmed that Will Poulter will play Pennywise the Clown/Monster. Tim Curry nailed this role in the previous It (1990) TV mini-series. Director Cary Fukunaga will breath new life into the It Reboot with two feature films instead of a TV miniseries this time around. It is said that Poulter auditioned for the role and nailed the role. Too early to call it on my end but I cannot wait to see what develops. The It Reboot is currently in pre-production.

Also starring in Fear The Walking Dead are Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm).

Philip Gawthorne is screenwriting off a rough story by Kesh. Roy Lee and Jon Spaihts will produce with Vertigo’s Adam Stone as the lead. Cube was such a great film that had so much awesomeness coming from the stars and situations, can they reproduce that again… time will tell.
Trailer / Poster - The Rohl Farms Haunting from LeglessCorpse Films
LeglessCorpse Films is about to release a Limited Edition DVD for their latest horror film The Rohl Farms Haunting on May 18, 2015 via Self Destruct Films. Poster looks okay but does not interest me… guess that is why they added so many quotes and awards to the poster. The trailer does look suspenseful but I just cannot the film is any good yet neither has it made me want to see it. I feel like this film bites off of Adam Wingard’s You’re Next (2011) movie… I saw a man at the end of the trailer with a horse-face mask on. As far as found footage horror movies go, I may pass on this one… just being honest here.
RIP: Syfy's Helix TV Series Cancelled Officially
Syfy’s Helix TV Series has been cancelled from what seems like a huge decline in viewership. I started watching season 2 but my family did not like the jumping back and forth between the present and future events. I thought it was pretty cool but it looks like many other viewers felt the same too. I still have to watch out the second season of Helix and will do so even though it is cancelled, the series had real promise. Tell us what you think of this cancellation, do you agree with it getting cancelled or do you think this was totally wrong?

Guillermo del Toro, Norman Reedus Confirm 'Silent Hills' Cancellation
Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus confirm that Konami‘s Silent Hills project for what would have been an excellent horror game has been cancelled. Sony released the P.T. (Playable Teaser) back in August 2014 for the highly anticipated horror game. Sony will be taking off P.T. from the available downloads on April 29, 2015, so last chance to download it if you have not already. Hideo Kojima will no longer be the director of the game and things simply fell apart after that. Norman Reedus’ contract for Silent Hills expired and Guillermo del Toro is a busy man who has easily moved on. Konami has stated that they will keep Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima in mind for any future developments but plainly stated, it will not be the same horror game.

ABC’s The Whispers Season 1 will debut this summer on Monday June 1, 2015. Children are being manipulated by an unseen force and and the risk is high, the entire human race. Sounds like a pretty hefty journey ABC has planned for us. I am not sure why ABC has pushed the new TV series into the 10:00-11:00 ET/PT time frame but we will see. Starring in The Whispers Season 1 are Tate Birchmore, Barry Sloane and Lily Rabe.

Set to write the screenplay are Chad Hayes and Carey Hayes who brought us The Conjuring (2013), House of Wax (2005) and The Reaping (2007). Director Sidney J. Furie shocked many horror movie fans when he released The Entity back in 1983. The new horror film seems to have a very solid foundation and I personally cannot wait to see more on The Entity remake.
