WWE Studios along with Lionsgate and director Zach Lipovsky are bringing us a new Leprechaun film titled Leprechaun: Origins (2014). This film is in no way related to the Leprechaun series that became increasingly horrible with every new installment. Brendan Fletcher, Andrew Dunbar, Teach Grant and Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the Leprechaun star in the new reboot. Many will be happy that the horror film will be closer to scary horror with very little horror comedy.
Carl Lindbergh‘s The Bunnyman Massacre (2012) will release on the Chiller TV network this Friday, April 18, 2014. How many of you are interested in this horror film? David Scott, Joshua Lang, Julianne Dowler, Jennifer June Ross and Heather Daley star in this messed up bunny gone killer horror movie that is inspired by true events.
FEARnet has been bought by Comcast who will then merge the content into Syfy and Chiller TV. Comcast realizes the huge demand for horror. Back in 2011, Comcast bought NBCUniversal acquiring Syfy and Chiller TV. Of the 25 employees, 10 will be moving to Syfy or Chiller TV while the remaining 15 employees are now out of a job. This merger is said to take full effect over a “a yet to be determined period of time.”
A&E has confirmed that Norma Bates (Vera Farmiga) and Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) will join us for Bates Motel Season 3. I have fallen behind on the latest season but I really liked season 1. The town was crazier than the Bates somehow and I will see if that trend continues in season 2 of the Bates Motel. Not sure if Max Thieriot will be returning because TV characters especially in horror TV shows are not immune to the writers killing characters.
Brian O’Malley‘s Let Us Prey (2014) is something different. Imagine one prisoner who turns the entire prison including the police officers into his puppets of mayhem. I really want to see how this film plays out. Liam Cunningham, Pollyanna McIntosh and Bryan Larkin star in Let Us Prey.
Chad Archibald‘s The Drownsman (2014) sets high goals of creating a new horror villain icon in a time where horror icons have died off and can only be seen in modern horror classics. I am talking of horror villains like Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Pinhead and Jason Voorhees. I for one hope that Chad can make it happen but I guess we just have to see what happens. Starring is Michelle Mylett, Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable and Ry Barrett as The Drownsman.
Netflix officially announced the Hemlock Grove Season 2 release date to be Friday July 11, 2014. The new season will contain 10 episodes of werewolf and an upir vampire (Most vicious vampire type from Russia who walk by day. Other variations of Upir are Opir, Opur, Upyr and Upier) action. I really liked the horror series and I am stoked to see season 2 of Hemlock Grove on Netflix this July.
Horror game Outlast was one of the best horror games of 2013. The Outlast DLC Whistleblower will be released this May 6, 2014 in the U.S. and on May 7, 2014 in Europe for PS4. The surprising news is that this DLC will act as both a prequel and sequel says developer Red Barrels. I cannot wait to so how the original horror story expands on the enjoyable original game.
