Melanie Light's 'The Herd' First Trailer Debut
Melanie Light‘s The Herd (2014) is a tale of the abuse of some women held captive for their milk. I know that sounds strange and really different. This is the new horror short that looks very interesting. This is basically a twisted tale that is way out of the norm in a Vegan’s point of view. Watch this and you will never look at milk from the cows in the same way. Starring in The Herd are Dylan Barnes, Victoria Broom and Jon Campling.
New 'Love in the Time of Monsters' Clip and Poster
Matt Jackson‘s new horror comedy Love in the Time of Monsters (2014) looks silly. I am not sure what to think of the movie so far but here is the latest clip from DreadCentral. Anytime you see Doug Jones and Kane Hodder team up on a movie you had better pay close attention to the film. Starring in Love in the Time of Monsters are Doug Jones, Kane Hodder and Michael McShane, former Miss Universe Shawn Weatherly, Gena Shaw and Hugo Armstrong.

Now the horror film is making it’s way onto DVD on June 9, 2015 and on VOD this upcoming April 7, 2015. We can thank Uncork’d Entertainment for getting this film released.

Funko Releasing Nosferatu Pop! Vinyl Figure
When I saw that Funko was releasing a Nosferatu Pop! Vinyl Figure, I could not contain my excitement. Funko releases some nice collectables for the horror fans out there. Horror Block even ships some out in their monthly mystery boxes, hint hint, would not mind seeing one of these classic vampires in my next Horror Block. This figure is based on the 1922 F. W. Murnau‘s Nosferatu (1922) vampire classic. Sadly we have to wait until August 2015 but an earlier sale at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2015 is expected.
New In-Your-Face Zombie Killing Poster for Dead Rising: Watchtower!
Capcom and Sony will release Zach Lipovsky‘s Dead Rising: Watchtower (2015) on Crackle this upcoming March 27, 2015. This film is based on Capcom’s Dead Rising game series which recently released Dead Rising 3 for next gen consoles and it was fantastic! This will be a Crackle exclusive on release day but I am sure other VOD services will get to stream the zombie movie soon. This new Dead Rising: Watchtower poster really catches the essence of the Dead Rising game franchise with the sledgehammer chainsaw combo weapon in full view. Starring in Dead Rising: Watchtower are Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory, Virginia Madsen, Dennis Haysbert and Rob Riggle.
'Crow' Creator Wants Sam Witwer to Play the Crow!
James O’Barr wants Sam Witwer (Syfy’s Being Human TV series) to play the Crow in the Crow Remake. Luke Evans recently left the limbo that is the Crow Remake to make more movies, he just could not put a hold on his schedule. O’Barr actually reached out to Witwer after Evans departed from the film and Witwer told O’Barr that he would “mow his lawn for the rest of his life for the chance.” Witwer is just funny like that and just like that, Witwer needs the final approval from the Crow Remake director Corin Hardy and Witwer could be announced the official Crow.

New Line Cinema Making Housebound Remake
The New Zealand horror comedy directed by Gerard Johnstone did pretty good in the reviews and apparently turned some heads over at New Line Cinema who recently secured the rights to create an American version of Housebound (2014). Peter Jackson himself gave Housebound positive reviews. Jackson reportedly helped Johnstone get in touch with New Line Cinema for the remake. The original Housebound is currently released on DVD / Blu-ray so make sure you check it out if you have not already.

Syfy’s Sharknado 3 (2015) will see Cassie Scerbo return along with Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. Anthony C. Ferrante will direct and The Asylum is also attached. I tried to jump in on the Sharknado movie a couple of times but just was at the wrong times and I was easily distracted. Sharknado 2 (2014) is currently on Netflix Instant Streaming and was a major rating puller for Syfy recently. Also cast in Sharknado 3 are Cindy Margolis, Vanilla Ice and Brittani Cox.

Raimi will direct the first episode that is co-written by him and Ivan Raimi. I am so ready for Ash vs Evil Dead; I know the original members are involved and Starz has already produced some gory favorites like Spartacus, great TV show overall… especially the first seasons.

New UK Poster for Ryan Reynold's The Voices

Neill Blomkamp's 'Alien' Movie Happening with Sigourney Weaver!?
Neill Blomkamp‘s Alien movie may very well be coming real soon with Sigourney Weaver looking to “finish what she started.” Blomkamp has done movies like District 9 (2009) and Elysium (2013) so he is definitely a man with a proven sci-fi track record. I would love to see this movie with Weaver destroying the Xenomorph home planet, that would be awesome. Show some love if you want to speed up this process so the studios know we want it real bad.
'Halloween Reboot' Penned By SAW Writers and a 'Recalibration'!?
Co-writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan (multiple SAW sequels, The Collector (2009), The Collection (2012), Feast (2005) and Pacific Rim (2013)) have been tasked with writing the Halloween Reboot. I think these guys have some serious talent and only good things can come out of this. Something extremely interesting is that they are actually calling the Halloween Reboot a “recalibration” and it is not a reboot, remake or re-imagining. Further more, this movie will have no relation to Rob Zombies’ Halloween (2007) and Halloween II (2009), ouch. That is all for now until The Weinstein Company/Dimension Films release more detail on the next Halloween movie.
