New Trailer / Poster for THE RUSSIAN SLEEP EXPERIMENT Short Film [Video]

One of my all-time favorite Creepy Pastas is The Russian Sleep Experiment Creepy Pasta. I think making this Creepy Pasta into a short horror film is the great idea so it would be short on filler. The poster looks very unattractive, but that should not deter you from watching the trailer below. Gary Brunner as the Russian Scientist, Michael Bugard as Dr. Felix Nast, Brett Sulferino as Ulrich Shultz, and Zach Ross as Hanz Berlitz star in the short film.

Top Ten Stephen King Film Adaptations

Top Ten Stephen King Film Adaptations

Stephen King has written over 50 novels and 200 short stories. The man is an infamous horror icon and master of horror. This is my list of the best Stephen King film adaptations. This list only includes related horror movies, no Shawshank Redemption, and also does not include TV mini-series events (It, The Stand, The Tommyknockers, etc.). Author Stephen King has been amazingly successful in having his novels/books translate into movies, but at the same time, some turned out to be great while others fell short along the way. Continue below for the full list along with some worthy mentions.

Emjay Anthony, Adam Scott, Toni Collette, David Koechner, Allison Tolman, Conchata Ferrell, Stefania Lavie Owen, and Krista Stadler star in Krampus.

The full Preacher trailer will air during this week’s episode of The Walking Dead, November 1, 2015. During one of the flashes, you can see the vampire Cassidy with a hand burning from the sun. Seth Rogen produced the Preacher TV series and says that they stayed pretty close to the source material. The official premiere date for Preacher is still undetermined, but it will be sometime in 2016. Dominic Cooper, Jamie Anne Allman, and Euphrates ‘Tee’ Arthur star in AMC’s Preacher Season 1.

First Look at Eli Roth's South of Hell TV Series [Video]

Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and Eli Roth finally has a first look teaser trailer video for new horror TV series South of Hell Season 1. WEtv’s South of Hell Season 1 premieres November 27, 2015, with a fantastic Netflix feel of airing the complete seven episodes right after the other so you can binge watch the entire series. You will still be able to watch the series on a weekly basis, but I thought it was really cool that all seven episodes would air right away. Eli Roth executive produced the new horror TV series and also directed the pilot episode. Other episodes were directed by Ti West (House of the Devil, The Sacrament), Rachel Talalay (Doctor Who, Tank Girl), Jennifer Lynch (The Walking Dead, Teen Wolf) and Jeremiah Chechik (Helix, Reign). That is a long list of talented directors on one short TV series so I am especially excited to see what they pulled off.

Lizzie Borden has been played in movies numerous times with the latest performance done by Christina Ricci as a TV movie.

Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken made a funny parody short film about Jason Voorhees vs. Godzilla. What a hilariously funny video. You have to appreciate Robot Chicken for mashing two franchises that otherwise would never be mixed. Tell us what you think of this video and concept in the comments below.

Michael Dougherty Talks Trick 'r Treat 2

Michael Dougherty Talks Trick 'r Treat 2

Michael Dougherty talks Trick ‘r Treat 2 and what we can expect for the sequel to Trick ‘r Treat (2007). I personally have Trick ‘r Treat as a Halloween tradition to watch on Halloween night. The perfect example of everything a Halloween horror anthology should be. Michael Dougherty said that we can expect more of the same structure as the first film, but it digs deeper behind the “curtain.” Legendary Pictures announced that they were officially moving forward with the Trick ‘r Treat sequel two years ago. Trick ‘r Treat 2 is currently in development and should go into production soon. Michael Dougherty is currently promoting Krampus (2015), so we have a little wait.

Gary Oldman Co-Writing Western Vampire Novel BLOOD RIDERS!

Gary Oldman Co-Writing Western Vampire Novel BLOOD RIDERS!

Gary Oldman is one of my favorite actors today. I was astonished to hear that he will be making a western vampire novel. Gary Oldman played a fantastic Dracula in Francis Ford Coppola‘s Dracula (1992). Gary Oldman will be co-writing Blood Riders with Douglas Urbanski, who is also his longtime producer/manager. The new vampire novel is described to be about “a mysterious man fleeing a curse in a town that the gold rush left behind.” Blood Riders has been in the works for a long time now since The Book of Eli (2010) was filming. The co-writers decided to write a novel after they went back and forth with the medium being movie or TV; a novel was the final decision. Blood Riders is set to release this upcoming Spring 2016. Blood Riders is expected to be a novel series as Urbanski teased that readers will want to know what happened to Magnus, the protagonist.

Hellraiser: Origins Short Film [Video]

A few years ago, short film Hellraiser: Origins was originally pitched to Dimension Films as a Hellraiser Reboot by Mike Le Han and Paul Gerrard. The pitch was either passed on or ignored by the studio and forgotten. We get to see Pinhead in Hell in the short film, and it looks pretty good. Tell us what you think of Hellraiser: Origins in the comments below.
