  • Will ‘Venom’ Feature the Five Founding Symbiotes?!
    I’m not a fan of overcomplicated action films that carry multiple character arcs. They rarely work, which is why I’m so fascinated with James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy films. But they can work, in the right hands. Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer could have a lot on his plate if this report proves true. He’s currently casting […]
  • Bill Skarsgard Says ‘It: Chapter Two’ Will Be An “Adult Story”

  • [Review] ‘Bad Match’ Is a Fun Ride Through Social Media Hell
    Representing social media culture and online interaction in film is especially hard in this cynical day and age.

  • John Carpenter On People Remaking His Films: “Pay Me”
    Over my 17 year tenure, I’ve had the distinct pleasure of interviewing the great John Carpenter on several occasions. He’s blunt, forthcoming, and would rather talk about basketball and video games than horror movies. Something else that’s constant is that he could give two shits about his films being remade, always expressing that money is […]

  • Cycle of Grief: The Missed Message at the Heart of ‘Blair Witch’
    Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett’s Blair Witch, the stealthily-created reboot/sequel to The Blair Witch Project, is – in my opinion – misunderstood and unfairly maligned.

    Wrong Turn 2 director Joe Lynch brings Steven Yeun (“The Walking Dead”) and Samara Weaving (“Ash vs. Evil Dead”) into the most hostile of work environments in Mayhem, a blood-soaked action film that delighted audiences at SXSW earlier this year.
