Matilda Lutz Cast in New 'Ring' Movie Titled Rings

Matilda Lutz Cast in New 'Ring' Movie Titled Rings

Italian actress Matilda Lutz will star as the lead in the Rings (2015). Directing the new Ring movie will be F. Javier Gutierrez. So far, Lutz is the only confirmed cast member attached the Rings. Samara was one scary looking little girl and that climbing out of the TV scene was great. I am still wondering why the title of the movie is called Rings, was the film copied and then sent to multiple recipients thus creating multiple “ring” occurrences? I cannot wait to find out either way. Are you stoked to return to the Ring franchise just like me?

Another Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden also confirmed this but stated that the conversations so far have only been scheduling to see when they can get the team back together at the same time.

Jason Vorhees' Friday the 13th Update From Andrew Form

Jason Vorhees' Friday the 13th Update From Andrew Form

Producer Andrew Form released some alarming news when he stated that they are ‘working on the script still.” David Bruckner (The Signal, V/H/S) will be directing the film but needs a script. Being real here, there is no way they may even release the film this year so that erases the idea of a November 13, 2015 release date. If they do manage to release it one the previous date, it may be rushed and rough around the edges.

Zombie Horror Short - 'Isolation' is Impressively Realistic

Zombie Horror Short - 'Isolation' is Impressively Realistic

Looking for some great realistic looking animation then this horror short Isolation is just for you. Isolation comes from Peak Pictures and features lots of zombies. The zombie short was penned by Manuel Vergara and Tomas Vergara. The sound score compliments what is on screen tremendously well. These zombies are fast moving zombies and that just ups the action/terror to an amazing scale. I like how they reenact the great scene from World War Z (2014). You MUST see this horror short, NOW!

Sam Rockwell Talks Poltergeist (2015) Update

Gil Kenan‘s Poltergeist (2015) remake of the classic horror movie from Steven Spielberg/Tobe Hooper Poltergeist (1982) has very little (none) promo material making it way out. However, Sam Rockwell has shared some news that this Poltergeist remake will be a kids movie. So to clarify that statement the new horror film will be told through the eyes of a little boy instead of from the perspective of JoBeth Williams. For this reason, Poltergeist will not be rated R but that should not change anything much. Sam Raimi is the producer and Poltergeist will be released this upcoming July 24, 2015. Starring in Poltergeist are Jared Harris, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino and Jane Adams.

Ohio Teacher Facing Jail for Showing 'ABCs of Death' to Class

Update: Sheila Kearns found guilty! 

Judge Charles Schneider scheduled sentencing for March 4. The maximum penalty for each felony count is one year in prison and a $2,500 fine. However, probation is the presumed penalty for the low-level felony.

Kearns, 58, showed the movie to students ranging in age from 14 to 18 on April 11, 2013.

Sheila Kearns, age 58, was a substitute teacher who is now facing jail time because she showed the class the ABCs of Death (2012). I know the horror anthology film was horrible and has really graphic content but is this too much? I can make jokes that some of the makers of the horror shorts should have gone to jail but this is a serious matter. Do you think this went overboard or do you think that Sheila Kearns deserves to go to jail? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below and full details on the case are below.
