Pumpkinhead is a franchise that I would love to see rebooted but until then, Scream Factory will be releasing the Blu-ray of Pumpkinhead (1988) & Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings (1993) this September 2014. Although the Pumpkinhead franchise did get increasingly cheesy as the movies went on, the first and second movies were pretty good.
Ryan Gosling makes his directorial movie debut with Lost River (2014) which was formerly known as How to Catch a Monster. Watch the new movie stills which look pretty creepy looking. You can get a sneak look at Lost River next month at the Cannes Film Festival. Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks and Eva Mendes star in Lost River.
What are Shadow People and why do they continue to scare us? Shadow people appear darker-than-night with the occasional reports of the figures having blazing red eyes. Some people see these shadow people once in a lifetime while others continue to see these evil entities night after night. The Shadow People phenomena has gotten huge over the last few decades but the term “Shadow People” seems to categorize many different types of entities.
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.
