Deadline reports that McKenna Grace (Amityville: The Awakening, I Tonya) has been cast to play Emma in the film, the titular Bad Seed. Patty McCormack, who nabbed herself an Oscar nomination playing the young girl in the original, will co-star as the psychiatrist who treats … [Read more...]

Cunanan, Portrait of a Serial Killer: “American Crime Story” Details Real Life Horrors

On July 15th, 1997, famed fashion designer Gianni Versace was gunned down outside of his opulent Miami home by 27-year-old Andrew Cunanan. Versace’s death swept through the media like a wildfire. I was eleven at the time, and while I didn’t pay attention to the specifics of the case, I remember the incessant news coverage playing out in my periphery. A crazed fan murdering a celebrity? That was a straightforward narrative I was … [Read more...]

[Video] Clips from Other Movies Make for a Much Better ‘Venom’ Trailer

The first teaser trailer for the Tom Hardy-starring Venom, released earlier this month, certainly didn’t do much to increase or even maintain fan interest in the film. Not only did Venom not actually appear in the teaser, but it just plain wasn’t a very exciting first look at the movie; we can only hope this will be remedied with future trailers. For now, a fan cut together a pretty awesome one on his own. Using clips from several … [Read more...]

Returning Michael Myers Nick Castle Says New ‘Halloween’ is a Lot Like the Original

Nick Castle, who played Michael Myers in the original Halloween, has just wrapped filming on David Gordon Green’s 40-years-later sequel, wherein he’s once again playing Michael Myers; stunt performer James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers, likely tasked with donning the mask to do the film’s actual stunt work.

William Sadler Says He’ll Return As Death In ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’

Just yesterday, Bill & Ted franchise writer Ed Solomon tweeted out the exciting news that Death would be returning in the long-in-development Bill & Ted Face the Music.  Demon Knight‘s William Sadler stole the show as the Grim Reaper in Peter Hewitt’s 1991 Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, losing to the duo in a series of challenges and eventually joining the band as their bassist. His scene-stealing “Reaper Rap” helped the duo win the … [Read more...]

Jordan Peele Reveals Another Alternate ‘Get Out’ Ending

Available on Get Out‘s home video release is an alternate ending that brings the film to a close on a much darker note. In the film’s actual ending, Chris survives his hellish ordeal, and his friend Rod gets him the hell out of there. In the alternate ending, however, Chris is arrested, resigning himself to the sad fate of never getting out of prison. Peele calls that ending a “very dark gut-punch.” And in a chat with THR, … [Read more...]

Even Kane Hodder is Hungry for ‘Friday the 13th’ to Return from the Grave

No, he probably won’t be involved. But he wants it anyway. Despite a couple iterations of a Friday the 13th reboot *almost* getting off the ground in recent years, the franchise has remained dead for an uncharacteristically long period of time. In fact, we are currently in the midst of the longest stretch of time between Friday the 13th movies in history: at the time of writing this, it’s now been over 9 years! What shape will Friday … [Read more...]

[Exclusive] “Comic Book Men” Star Bryan Johnson Talks ‘Vulgar 2’ and Upcoming Horror Comics

Bryan Johnson’s name may not be one of the most recognizable in the horror genre, but his work in the genre has been truly unforgettable. Johnson’s solo directing effort, the Kevin Smith produced Vulgar, was a grindhouse gutpunch, which has only become more and more popular since its initial release in 2000. Starring Brian O’Halloran (“Clerks”), the film follows a struggling professional clown (O’Halloran) as he attempts to put his life … [Read more...]

The ‘Terminator’ Franchise Is Getting a New Female Hero

Since Terminator creator James Cameron is busy directing several Avatar sequels, he’s enlisted Deadpool‘s Tim Miller to direct the sixth entry that could shoot this coming May through November in the U.K., Spain, and Budapest. Even with Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to their roles, Cameron and Miller are looking to Stars Wars as a formula for rebuilding a nearly-destroyed franchise. This included new characters and the … [Read more...]

Life Continues to Find a Way as ‘Jurassic World 3’ is Already Dated for Release!

We still have to wait until June 22nd to see J.A. Bayona’s Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which looks to be the scariest installment in the franchise to date. But it seems Universal has utmost confidence in its box office performance – and why wouldn’t they, with Jurassic World being a smash hit – as they’re already moving forward with another! Variety is reporting that Jurassic World 3, which surely won’t … [Read more...]

New Trailer Uses Black Magic to Summon the ‘Pyewacket’

Be careful what you wish for… In Pyewacket, from director Adam MacDonald (Backcountry), a frustrated girl (Nicole Muñoz) attempts an occult ritual but awakens something sinister in the woods instead. Hailing out of Canada, the psychological thriller, from the executive producer of The Witch, is actually about a young girl who performs an occult ritual to evoke a witch to kill her mother. We are huge fans of this indie gem here on Bloody. I … [Read more...]

Arrow Video Bringing Wes Craven’s ‘Last House on the Left’ to Blu-ray!

Before becoming a household name thanks to A Nightmare on Elm Street, Wes Craven made the much smaller (and way more disturbing) The Last House on The Left back in 1972. The film was produced by Sean Cunningham, who went on to direct Friday the 13th, so it’s needless to say an important film to the entire history of horror. Screen Anarchy reports today that The Last House on the Left is headed to Arrow Video Blu-ray, with the special … [Read more...]
