R.I.P.D. Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD will be available for purchase on October 29, 2013 with the early Digital HD available October 15, 2013. I finally got the time to watch this movie with the family and I really liked it. It had great special effects and a pretty good storyline that entertained kids and myself. Universal is packing some great features on the discs making them a great buy. I loved that Ryan Reynolds was the serious one in the film and Jeff Bridges was totally bonkers.
Who doesn’t love watching a horror feature that is suitable for the entire family? Toy Story of Terror sets the characters of Toy Story in yet another missing toy but this time they are mixing in a sweet horror theme. Buzz Lightyear, Woody and Jessie are featured in the latest poster with very alarming looks on their faces. Toy Story of Terror will air this upcoming October 16, 2013 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
FX is really pushing the envelope on weird when it comes to American Horror Story: Coven. The latest poster features a snake inter-twined/inter-woven; basically in everyone’s mouth. It brings some original sin type feelings to the table and having a Coven of Witches in this upcoming season of American Horror Story makes it perfect for setting a creepy tone. Jessica Lange will return to the popular horror TV show along with Frances Conroy, Denis O’Hare, Taissa Farmiga, Jamie Brewer, Lily Rabe, Angela Bassett, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Gabourey Sidibe and Kathy Bates.
Stephen King’s Carrie Remake is a new telling of the classic tale and horror movie. Carrie hit movie theaters this upcoming October 18, 2013. I have to admit that I was not really looking forward to this movie in the past but I am slowly gaining interest in the new horror movie starring Chloe Grace Moretz.
Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming has confirmed that Season 7 of True Blood will be the last and final season of HBO’s favorite vampire TV series. Season 7 will run for 10 episodes and end in 2014. The popular vampire TV series is one of HBO’s top rated TV series with an average gross audience of 10.6 million viewers per episode. Farewell True Blood, here’s hoping that they kill the series off with a major bang! The series has had it’s ups and downs but True Blood Season 6 was a great comeback from the prior pitfalls. Eric Northman is out there thinking whether or not he should terrorize the HBO executives.
Director Mark Hartley‘s remake of Patrick is looking pretty good so far. In October, Patrick hits the Stiges Film Festival and hopefully makes a big splash. Richard E.

Tommy Wirkola’s Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead is now at the halfway point of filming as announced by Tommy Wirkola via his Twitter account. As a treat to his fans, Wirkola has dropped a behind the scenes still showing off a very brainy zombie. The zombie horror film originally had the tagline of “War of the Dead”. This sequel will pickup right after the first ended and the sole survivor will be aided by a gang of U.S. zombie killers to fight off the Nazi zombies. The zombie film stars Martin Starr (This Is the End), Ingrid Haas (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World), and Jocelyn Deboer (Inside Amy Schumer).
The Hunted is directed by Josh Stewart and has a killer tagline; “Will Do To The Woods What Jaws Did To The Ocean”. Those are mighty big claims to be throwing around in this day and age. Everyone builds a little hype around their movie but you have to be careful not to over-hype the movie else you have many folks left disappointed. I for one am extremely interested in finding out what the creature is. Hope they do not toy with us till the bitter end and show some crazy reflected of some random surface image of the creature; those type of movies really let me down. The trailer looks pretty fresh and really sets a high expectation of this new horror movie.
