M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit (2015) received a PG-13 rating.

The Greasy Strangler with Elijah Woods and Company
The Greasy Strangler is coming together from a huge collaboration including Elijah Wood‘s SpectreVision, Drafthouse Films, Rook Films and Timpson Films to produce The Greasy Strangler. This will be the directorial debut of British Jim Hosking. All I have to say is “if Elijah Wood is in, so am I.” The new horror film takes place in Los Angeles with Ronnie and son Brayden. Father and son soon fall victim to the allure of a sexy woman and they both begin competing for her attention. Mysteriously, this is also the start of a killing spree for a slimy serial killer strangling the innocent later to be known as “The Greasy Strangler.”

Enjoy the Stigmata Blu-ray cover art below.
Fox Orders Pilot for 'Frankenstein' TV Series
Fox has recently ordered a pilot for a new supernatural drama based on loosely Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein. Fox is still trying to catch-up on what works as multiple other TV networks have several dark TV shows already in their primes. The new Frankenstein series will be written and produced by Rand Ravich and executive produced by Howard Gordon (The X-Files, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel). The story will center on Ray Pritchard who is a morally corrupt retired cop who is brought back from the dead into a much younger and stronger body. Will Pritchard fall back into old temptations or choose better moral path? Frankenstein is going to be a Sci-Fi drama and from the sound of this early news, very boring and dull.

Sky Sharks - N*zi Super-Mutant Flying Zombie Sharks
Marc Fehse‘s new horror comedy Sky Sharks (2017) seems like a slightly different take on Syfy’s Sharknado movies. I read the synopsis and even though Sharknado was not my “thing”, I feel like I could really like Sky Sharks. Sad we have to wait till September 1, 2017 to watch the film but by that time the new film should be very polished. Cast in Sky Sharks include Cary Tagawa, Robert LaSardo, Nick Principe, Lar Park-Lincoln, Lynn Lowry and Micaela Schafer.

Eli Roth Produced Clown Blu-ray / DVD Release Date Details and Photos
Director Jon Watts’ and Eli Roth produced Clown (2014) is finally getting it’s Blu-ray / DVD release date this upcoming March 2, 2015. I am hoping to add this horror film to my scary clown movies list, if it is scary enough. Eli Roth also stars as Frowny the Clown. Also starring in Clown are Peter Stormare, Laura Allen, Elizabeth Whitmere and Chuck Shamata. I really have high hopes for this scary movie and all promo material so far makes it look scary. What are your thoughts on Eli Roth’s Clown movie?

The Blob (1958) producer Jack H Harris will executive produce this new remake of The Blob along with Judith Parker Harris, Shara Kay and Laurence Freed.

David Duchovny Confirms X-Files Reboot But As X-Files Limited TV Series
David Duchovny has confirmed that he is eager/willing and able to return as Fox Mulder BUT as a limited X-Files TV series only. He states that he is getting too old to do a full TV series like before. David Duchovny is also scheduled for NBC’s Aquarius TV series where he plays a homicide detective trailing Charles Manson during the 1960’s, before the Tate-LaBianca murders were committed. Fox TV Group already confirmed they are on board too so the X-Files reboot series will happen soon in some shape. Random thoughts; will Fox make Mulder a side character? Gillian Anderson has confirmed that she will return as Dana Scully and Chris Carter also is in talks with Fox. More from HellHorror.com as this develops.

Writer Seth Grahame-Smith shared a lot of news about the Beetlejuice 2 aka Beetlejuice Sequel. Starting from the top, Michael Keaton and Tim Burton are definitely interested in the new Beetlejuice movie.
