Lakeshore Entertainment is currently developing the new Underworld 5, but as an Underworld Reboot! We will return to the vampire vs lycans (werewolves) eternal war with Cory Goodman as the writer. Goodman has experience with Priest (2011) and even wrote the first draft for The Last Witch Hunter starring Vin Diesel and Elijah Wood. Kate Beckinsale has not been confirmed to reprise her role as Death Dealer Selene.
FX‘s American Horror Story: Freak Show premieres this October 8, 2014 so it is about time we get to meet the characters. We see Sarah Paulson at the very top as the lady with two heads. I cannot wait to see how the new American Horror Story’s twisted story plays out. AHS: Freak Show stars Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Emma Roberts, Michael Chiklis, John Carroll Lynch, Denis O’Hare, Gabourey Sidibe, Jamie Brewer, Frances Conroy, Wes Bentley, Jyoti Amge, Finn Wittrock and Patti LaBelle.
Elijah Wood and his production team SpectreVision are producing a new zombie movie with director Jorge Michel Grau (We Are What We Are (2013)). I really like the poster, also the horror movie is serving a greater cause of tackling immigration and the systematic exploitation of the immigrants. This is really the first details so there is no official cast yet. I am a huge Elijah Wood fan and cannot wait to see more of this film.
If you are like me, you are really stoked to see the new zombie movie with Arnold Schwarzenegger titled Maggie (2014). What is even better is that Lionsgate has picked up the distribution rights for director Henry Hobson’s Maggie. I cannot wait to see Arnold battle zombies and we may even hear “I’ll be Back!” Anyways, starring in Maggie are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson and Laura Cayouette.
Life After Beth (2014) from director Jeff Baena will release on Blu-ray and DVD this upcoming October 21, 2014. Both releases will feature audio commentary from the director Baena and the stars; Aubrey Plaza, Dane DeHaan and Matthew Gray Gubler. We will get the usual deleted scenes along with a special featurette “Life After Beth: The Post Mortem”. Thanks to Lionsgate Home Entertainment, we now have another Halloween movie release.
Slew Hampshire (2013), a new horror movie from Blumhouse Productions has just received a new poster and teaser trailer. Slew Hampshire has been reported to have “the goriest scene of 2013” by Rue Morgue Magazine. The film has a nice budget of $1-3 million so hopefully that was well spent. Cast in Slew Hampshire are Dayo Okeniyi, Shawn Thomas and Tyler Rice with Flood Reed as director. Tell me if you like this type of horror movie.
Origin Releasing has just dropped the new poster and trailer for their new movie Not Human (2013), aka Omnibus: Alien Invasion (2013). The poster looks terrific with the mashup of all the sci-fi elements without feeling too overwhelming. The trailer clearly shows a small budget with green-ooze filled aliens attacking humans and I hope that director Adam R Steigert delivers. Not Human releases on VOD this September 9, 2014 with the DVD/Blu-ray release in December 2014. Not Human stars Jason John Beebe, Robert Bozek and Bill Brown.
