First Look at Stephen King's 'Cell' Movie
I have really high hopes for Tod Williams’ Cell (2015), the Stephen King movie adaptation of the popular book Cell. The cast is great and includes Samuel L. Jackson, John Cusack and Isabelle Fuhrman. The screenplay was written by Stephen King with some revisions by Adam Alleca so we should have something very close to the source material. I enjoyed reading Cell and cannot wait to see the new movie Cell (2015), there is still no official release date expect an open 2015 date.
New Trailer for The Lazarus Effect (2015) Looks Awesome!
David Gelb‘s The Lazarus Effect (2015) looks really awesome and the latest trailer makes this a must see horror movie of 2015, yeah… I said it. The trailer shows the beginning and then breaks down the three phases till the full evil is released. Jason Blum and Blumhouse Productions did a fantastic job. Cast in The Lazarus Effect are Evan Peters, Olivia Wilde, Mark Duplass and Donald Glover.
Bates Motel Season 3 - Creepy New Poster with Norman Bates and Norma Bates
A&E‘s Bates Motel Season 3 is set to premiere this upcoming Monday March 9, 2015 at 9:00 ET/PT. This season teases even more creepiness from returning cast members Freddie Highmore, Vera Farmiga and Max Thieriot. I have to admit that I trailed off a bit on the last season but I did make it halfway through, just need to watch the rest before this new season airs. Did you like season 2 and how excited are you to see the third season A&E’s Bates Motel?
CW Orders Pilot for Joe Hill's 'Tales From the Darkside'
The CW is bringing back a classic horror TV series… Tales From the Darkside. CW has just ordered the pilot to be scripted by Joe Hill (Horns, Locke & Key). Set to produce the new horror TV series are Joe Hill, Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod. I was a big fan of the original TV series that lasted for four seasons from 1984-1988. The original Tales From the Darkside was created by George A. Romero with some of his work along with Tom Savini and Robert Bloch. I cannot wait to see CW’s Tales From the Darkside, sounds great saying it.

Ex Power Ranger 'Ricardo Medina Jr.' Arrested for Murdering Roommate with Sword!?
So in the wolder news today, Ex Power Ranger Ricardo Medina Jr. (Red Lion Wild Force Ranger also known as Cole Evans and as a villain on Power Rangers: Samurai) has been arrested for murdering his roommate (Joshua Sutter) with a sword. His arrest happened on Saturday January 31, 2015. The former Red Ranger allegedly stabbed his roommate to death with the samurai sword. Supposedly… Medina’s girlfriend stated that the two roommates were in a heated argument when Medina retreated to his room but Sutter ran in too, forcing his way into the California residence. Medina then defended himself by stabbing him to death. I am not sure how this will rule out but it does sound weird.

The Dinner Guest is basically a home invasion movie that is very creepy, a Jigsaw narration really sets the tone for the new movie. Cast in The Dinner Guest are Shawn C. Phillips, Jon Maxwell and Justin Little.

New Netflix Horror Movies Added January 30, 2015
Netflix is frequently updating their horror titles for instant streaming and we love it. Netflix has just added App (2013), Stephen King‘s A Good Marriage (2014) and The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014). These are only three horror movie added to the popular VOD service but better than nothing. Over all, the movies here are pretty mediocre BUT The Town that Dreaded Sundown (2014) should be the first movie you watch on Netflix.

Luke Evans Leaves 'The Crow' Reboot
Relativity Studios is now looking for a replacement for Luke Evans because he is no longer apart of The Crow Reboot, bummer. Corin Hardy is still attached as the director but Luke Evans is a busy guy in high demand, we could not expect him to stick around in this “limbo” surrounding The Crow Reboot/The Crow Remake. I am sad to see him go and I know that many would have seen the reboot/remake just because he was attached. We will keep you posted when his “replacement” is found.
