Legend FX Artist Rick Baker to Retire
FX legend Rick Baker just recently auctioned a great deal of props from his personal collection on a Prop Store auction. Rick Baker then went on to 88.9 KPCC to reveal that he is done with the movie business. This is mainly due to the drastic decrease in practical special effects as Baker points out, this is the perfect time to leave it all behind. Baker will not leave behind his passion as he will continue to paint, sculpt and do digital models as he does what he wants to do now. HellHorror.com says thank you for all your great work throughout the years Rick Baker and we cannot wait to see what you still have in store for us in the future. Baker did special effects for An American Werewolf in London (1981), Videodrome (1983), Planet of the Apes (2001) and Men in Black (1997) among many more.
Microsoft to Save Silent Hills IP From Konami!?
Microsoft is making moves to purchase Silent Hills from Konami for an Xbox One exclusive. Microsoft is trying to close the deal officially before E3 2015 so they can make it a major reveal at the event. To make matters even better, Silent Hills is said to be about 80% done and may release as early as March 2016. If this is all true, it would be great to have Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima reunite once more to complete the final 20% of the game which I believe should only be in the polishing phase anyway at this point. Are you ready to see Norman Reedus in Silent Hills?
Hulu's Deadbeat Season 3 Confirmed!
Hulu‘s Deadbeat Season 3 has been confirmed as happening. Tyler Labine plays Kevin Pacalioglu, a stoner who speaks to the dead and the Hulu series is a comedy that is great for late night watching.

Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 3 does not have a premiere date set yet but we will keep you posted once it is released.
Cary Fukunaga Drops New Line Cinema's Stephen King's IT!?
Stephen King‘s IT adaptation has hit a major snag with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) leaving the director’s chair causing major delays in principal photography. It was reported that Fukunaga felt creatively compromised and with the filming starting in mid-June 2015, he jumped ship. The new IT movie has been delayed until further notice. Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema wanted to cut the budget down to 1 movie and cut the budget down from a pre-approved $30 million. Ben Mendelsohn was also originally sought out to star as Pennywise the Clown but passed on the role because of a pay cut; this led to Will Poulter being sought next as Pennywise the Clown. Not too sure if Poulter will stick around also. We also included a tweet from Stephen King. Long live Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown!
George A. Romero's EMPIRE OF THE DEAD TV Series Confirmed!?
George A. Romero‘s new comic book series Empire of the Dead will be the next big thing to turn into a horror TV adaptation. Empire of the Dead is an epic tale taking place in Manhattan, NY with both zombies and vampires. This comic series was a short 15 issues so this can be a mini-series or a great starting point for a longer TV series. In the last few years we have seen great things from Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead TV series and Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan‘s The Strain TV series. Graphic novels tell great stories most of the time and need very little tweaking to be converted to TV or the big screen. Marvel and DC Comics is doing this for the big screen with huge profits in the last few years too. Tell us how excited you are to see this new horror TV series.
New Friday the 13th No Longer a Found Footage Film
Producer Brad Fuller announced that they decided to drop the found footage angle for the new Friday the 13th film. Found footage films have their own credits and uses but no one could imagine how that would work out for a Friday the 13th movie. I mean… how would Jason Voorhees look in a found footage setting? Write your comments and tell us what you think, good move right?
FX's The Strain Season 2 Premiere Date / Details
FX’s The Strain Season 2 definitely has high expectations from fans of season 1 and I cannot wait to watch the first episode of The Strain Season 2 on July 12, 2015 at 10:00 EST. I cannot wait to see what Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan have in store for us in the new season. I read the graphic novels so I have an idea of the general story and I am sure that we will get a few tweaks for the TV series.

Jack Harris will executive produce this new Blob film as a returning producer to the franchise after directing The Blob (1958). Also producing are Richard Saperstein (Se7en, The Mist) and Brian Witten (Final Destination, Friday the 13th (2009)). They are also attached to the film adaptation of Stephen King‘s Cell (2015) movie which also stars Jackson. Chris Haney (Avatar, Avengers Assemble) will handle the VFX in post-production. With this many talents on the film, I am expecting something great.

Doug Wick is returning to produce The Craft Remake along with Lucy Fisher. The original cast of The Craft (1996) included Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True.
'28 Months Later' Update from Alex Garland - May 2015
Alex Garland has been busy promoting his new movie Ex Machina (2015) but has also decided to clue us in on what has been put into motion almost 2 years ago for 28 Months Later. I for one was really shocked to hear the comment. Andrew Macdonald produced both 28 Days Later (2002) and 28 Weeks Later (2007). Alex Garland wrote 28 Days Later… (2002) and executive produced 28 Weeks Later (2007). Read on for what Alex Garland had to say because I do not wan to spoil it for you nor do I want to change his statement. 28 Weeks Later (2007) ended with a very big cliff hanger… now we wait for 28 Months Later!
CW Passes on 'Tales From the Darkside' TV Series Reboot!?
CW has officially passed on the reboot for Tales From the Darkside TV Series Reboot which was written and executive produced by Joe Hill (Horns (2013)), Stephen King‘s son… Ouch! Reasons why CW passed… CW did not like the anthology format and there was no showrunner for the TV series. It is not certain if we will see the reboot of Tales From the Darkside on another network or streaming service. Kris Lemche was set as the main star in the horror anthology TV series.
AMC's Fear The Walking Dead Season 1 Adds Mercedes Mason

You can watch the newer looking zombies, my guess, on Hulu this time around.

Also starring in CW’s iZombie Season 1 are Malcolm Goodwin and Rahul Kohli. I watched a few of the episodes on Hulu and I have to say that I am not a major fan of the zombie TV series yet. Maybe I will watch some more episodes in the near future to see if I open up to the iZombie series.

'It' Remake Casts Will Poulter as Pennywise the Clown
Stephen King‘s It Remake is pushing forward and it has been confirmed that Will Poulter will play Pennywise the Clown/Monster. Tim Curry nailed this role in the previous It (1990) TV mini-series. Director Cary Fukunaga will breath new life into the It Reboot with two feature films instead of a TV miniseries this time around. It is said that Poulter auditioned for the role and nailed the role. Too early to call it on my end but I cannot wait to see what develops. The It Reboot is currently in pre-production.
Elizabeth Rodriguez Cast in AMC's Fear The Walking Dead TV Series
Elizabeth Rodriguez (Netflix’s Orange is the New Black) has been confirmed to star in AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead Season 1.

Also starring in Fear The Walking Dead are Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm). I am so excited that I will be able to watch AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead episodes on Hulu.

Cube was such a great film that had so much awesomeness coming from the stars and situations, can they reproduce that again… time will tell.
RIP: Syfy's Helix TV Series Cancelled Officially
Syfy’s Helix TV Series has been cancelled from what seems like a huge decline in viewership. I started watching season 2 but my family did not like the jumping back and forth between the present and future events. I thought it was pretty cool but it looks like many other viewers felt the same too. I still have to watch out the second season of Helix and will do so even though it is cancelled, the series had real promise. Tell us what you think of this cancellation, do you agree with it getting cancelled or do you think this was totally wrong?

Tom Six‘s The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) just released it’s 100% Politically Incorrect poster. The Human Centipede series is gruesome and gross but I still bet enough of you are still going to watch this out of pure curiosity.

Starring in The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence) (2015) are Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey, Eric Roberts, Robert LaSardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister and Bree Olson.

Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus confirm that Konami‘s Silent Hills project for what would have been an excellent horror game has been cancelled. Sony released the P.T. (Playable Teaser) back in August 2014 for the highly anticipated horror game. Sony will be taking off P.T. from the available downloads on April 29, 2015, so last chance to download it if you have not already. Hideo Kojima will no longer be the director of the game and things simply fell apart after that. Norman Reedus’ contract for Silent Hills expired and Guillermo del Toro is a busy man who has easily moved on. Konami has stated that they will keep Guillermo del Toro and Hideo Kojima in mind for any future developments but plainly stated, it will not be the same horror game.
M. Night Shyamalan's The Visit Movie Poster Reveal
M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit (2015) takes us into that deep down unsuspected horror of scary grandma’s. The Visit releases September 11, 2015 which is a Blumhouse Productions film from Universal Pictures. Shymalan wrote and directed the film near his Pennsylvania home which he also self-financed the horror film. Other events during this filming included Shymalan signing a deal with Jason Blumhouse of Blumhouse Productions which has also made a big deal signing with Universal Pictures, a 10 year extension to their first-look deal together. The trailer is said to be released soon and I cannot wait to see it.

Furie shocked many horror movie fans when he released The Entity back in 1983. The new horror film seems to have a very solid foundation and I personally cannot wait to see more on The Entity remake.

Fox while also adding Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth as new stars. Now it has been confirmed that Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch will also be returning to the Independence Day franchise. Pullman was President Whitmore and Hirsch was Jeff Goldblum’s father. Do you think Independence Day 2 (2016) will come close to or even beat the glory of Independence Day (1996)? So far Independence Day 2 is set to release in movie theaters on June 24, 2016.
AMC's Preacher TV Series Finds Dominic Cooper as Jesse Custer

Carol Peletier (Melissa McBride) has released her official cookie recipe to all of AMC’s The Walking Dead‘s fans. Carol enticed Jessie’s son, Sam, to have an endless supply of her special cookies or be strapped to a tree outside of the gates and become a walker feast. In the zombie apocalypse cookies are a Godsend but especially in the situation that Sam was in, they were a blessing. Do not want to spoil the scene for any binge watchers but that scene was perfect. Enjoy your cookies, I know I will!

Also starring in the new horror TV series set to premiere late 2015 are Ray Santiago (Pablo Simon Bolivar), Dana DeLorenzo (Kelly Maxwell) and Jill Marie Jones (Amanda Fisher). Sam Raimi returns to direct the first episode and I cannot wait to see what he does after all these years of experience.
Hulu's Deadbeat Adds James Franco, Danny DeVito Plus More to Cast
Big news… James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock are all joining Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2 cast. Tyler Labine stars as ghost whisperer Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu in the horror comedy TV series. Hulu’s Deadbeat Season 2 premieres April 20, 2015. I watched the series and set it on the backburner because it is something more along the lines of a show to watch when you are all caught up with “everything” else for me personally.
Krampus Movie Adds Adam Scott, David Koechner and Toni Collette to Cast
I am stoked to see Michael Dougherty‘s Krampus (2015), this is the man who brought us Trick ‘r Treat (2007). Krampus is the reverse Santa who preys on the “bad” children. Krampus has new cast members announced with Adam Scott, David Koechner and Toni Collette. Scott and Koechner will star in father roles of mysteriously lost children. Emjay Anthony will star as the new Krampus victim with Scott as the protagonist. Collette will star as Scott’s wife.

Kris Lemche Cast as Lead in Tales From the Darkside Pilot Episode
Kris Lemche has been cast as the lead in the Tales From the Darkside Reboot Pilot Episode. This is a full reboot of George A. Romero‘s horror anthology series Tales From the Darkside from the 1980’s. In CW’s Tales From the Darkside Season 1, things play out very different than the original horror anthology. There will be one main character who is present in every single episode named Newman (Lemche). Newman is described as “a weathered and tortured young man… the guide to the unsuspecting who come across The Darkside. Newman - a man with his own desperate, wrenching secrets - knows exactly what’s causing the terrifying Darkside Events that drive the series. What he doesn’t know is how to stop them.” Joe Hill (Horns (2014)) is writing and executive producing the new horror TV series. Other executive producers include Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Heather Kadin, Mitch Galin and Jerry Golod. Joe Hill is also Stephen King‘s son if that means anything in the form of even more expectations of greatness in the new TV series.
'Independence Day 2' Sequel Casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher, Liam Hemsworth and Release Date
So just like that, Independence Day 2 (2016) casts Jeff Goldblum, Jessie Usher and Liam Hemsworth for the Independence Day Sequel. Director Roland Emmerich seems to be setting the gears in motion fast trying to make the June 24, 2015 release date for Independence Day 2. This is the sequel to the Summer 1996 hit way back to Independence Day (1996). I have found memories of Will Smith punching the alien in the face… Smith was not mentioned in the casting to return however. Jessie Usher plays the son of Captain Steven Hiller (Will Smith), Liam Hemsworth is somehow related to President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) while Jeff Goldblum returns as David Levinson.

Len Wiseman (Underworld (2003)) will direct the pilot with Tom Kapinos (Californication) as the writer. Too soon to call it but I cannot wait for more news to trickle out about Fox’s Lucifer TV Series.
