Goddamn! It is October yet? I need Spooky Szn for a variety of reasons and I got another to add to the list. You see motherfuckers, October is the month when Guillermo del Toro’s horror anthology hits Netflix. Goddamn glorious slate of talent behind each episode, too.
The producer behind Friday the 13th is teasing franchise news dropping soon. Don’t fuck with us, bro. I mean. Listen, we need a new Friday the 13th. Even if it sucks. Best case scenario? It rocks, we thicken the corpus of the franchise. Worst case scenario? It sucks, we forget it. It can’t fucking hurt!
New ‘Exorcist’ Trilogy picked up by Universal pictures for a cool $400 million. A Devilish amount of money or some shit!
We ain’t just getting one new installment in The Exorcist series. Motherfuckers, we’re getting a new trilogy! So open your gullet to the thickened paste of refried content, and gulp it down! You better, you better! Universal Pictures demands it, given that they just spent fucking $400 million for the rights.
I didn’t even know there was a sequel to The fucking Exorcist coming, but hey! Motherfuckers it’s coming, and it’s going to be a sequel to the original flick. The news was confirmed by director David Gordon Green, who also helmed Halloween 2018. How the fuck do I feel about this? Well, if his Halloween 2018 effort is any indication, I don’t feel great! But hey, whatever the fuck, it’s not like it’ll impact my love for the original.
‘Hannibal’ creator Bryan Fuller directing new adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘Christine’ and good luck buddy
Everyone loves Bryan Fuller, and I don’t doubt that he’s awesome. But he’s stepping into the shoes of the GOAT John Carpenter with this next project. Dude is directing a new adaptation of Christine, and as I said. Good luck, buddy. Here’s legitimately hoping it’s awesome.
‘Evil Dead’ Sequel ‘Evil Dead Rise’ dropping on HBO Max. Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell Executive Producing!
There’s an Evil Dead sequel coming and the motherfucker is coming to HBO Max. Titled Evil Dead Rise, the movie is going to continue within the storylines established in the original trilogy, as opposed to the reboot. Hey! I don’t know if this shit is going to be good, but I’m definitely intrigued. Especially since the project has Sam Raimi and Bruce Campbell onboard as executive producers.
The Hellraiser remake is continuing to bound through time, space, and conceptions of pain to puncture our reality. The son of a bitch is officially coming to Hulu, and hey why the fuck not. Normally I’d be hesitant about remaking one of my favorite movies, but its director David Bruckner is super fucking solid. As well, if it sucks? Fuck it! No harm, no foul.
Folks, we got a release date for the next motherfucking movie from the director of The Witch and The Lighthouse. Eggers’ next movie The Northman has been tagged to drop in Spring 2022 and I goddamn can’t wait. The world unfurling from its clenched asshole is bringing with it release dates for all sorts of fantastic movies.
‘Spiral’ Director Wants to Make New ‘Leprechaun’ Movie and Demands Warwick Davis Returns. This Dude Gets It!
Spiral ain’t a half bad movie, and that’s because the director knows exactly what he’s working on. Now the dude hopes to rekindle the Leprechaun franchise and he understands one core thing. It ain’t no fucking Leprechaun without Warwick Davis. Give this man the property, and let’s get our boy Warwick back!
Spike Lee is producing Lovecraftian movie ‘Gordon Hemingway & The Realm of Cthulhu’ for Netflix. Sign me the fuck up!
Wait, what the fuck? Spike Lee is producing a Lovecraftian horror movie? Indeed, and its titled Gordon Hemingway & The Realm of Cthulhu. You know, I never thought I’d see a world where Spike Lee was producing a Cthulhu flick. Given, you know. He’s Spike Lee. Not to mention Lovecraft’s racist as fuck history. But, I think it’s an interesting angle, directors of color putting their own spin and interpretation on the mythos. Perhaps to admire its wonders while interrogating its myriad faults. With all that in mind, I’m really, really excited for this project.
