Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Blumhouse and Todd McFarlane have announced today at San Diego Comic-Con that the creator/artist of the Spawn comic books will step into the director’s chair and make a Spawn movie. It’s not exactly news that there was going to be another Spawn film, but now we know the great production company Blumhouse (The Conjuring) is behind it with McFarlane himself stepping up to direct, which fairly rare.

Hey guys, Jana here,

titanic_20130406_0239-800x450

Blumhouse Productions has made good business in bringing the scary to film-goers and they’re keeping the tradition alive by re-creating the chemistry that is set to make ‘Sinister 2‘ a spectacular fall hit when it releases, teaming with director Ciaran Foy.The first ‘Sinister‘ had a budget of only $3,000,000 and recouped over $48,000,000, more than $18,000,000 of that in the opening weekend, alone.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Gregg Maxwell Parker, Sean Finegan

Blumhouse Productions have acquired, on spec, the latest project from Sean Finegan and Gregg Maxwell Parker. The same duo that scripted ‘Getaway‘, the 2013 thriller that starred Ethan Hawke, Selena Gomez and Jon Voight and featured a Shelby Super Snake Mustang, driven by Hawke at breakneck speeds and wrecked so many cars that a junkyard was set up on scene just to repair vehicles. ‘Free Fall‘ won’t have the vehicular overhead ‘Getaway‘ required, the scares and thrills will be achieved by different means.

David-Berkowitz-640x360

 

 

Few things entertain me more than a good serial killer book/movie/TV show. I know, it’s a strange interest to have, but this is one of the milder interests of mine. We’ve heard about the Charles Manson slayings going into production for a series with Rob Zombie involved, this time it’s another killer that is getting the mini-series treatment.  David Berkowitz, Son of Sam, the .44 Caliber Killer – whatever you want to call him, he’s the next topic for a mini treatment.

Syfy’s ‘Tremors’ Series Bid Secures Director!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 23rd, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

So we’ve known for a little while that Syfy has teamed up with horror giant Blumhouse to give Kevin Bacon a series based on one of Bacon’s most iconic movie roles – ‘Tremors‘. The project has not only got the footloose and fancy free (See what I did there?) Bacon attached, but now there is a director on board in the form of Vincenzo Natali (‘Hannibal‘)

Blu-ray Review: GET OUT!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

When you say the name Jordan Peele, you would most likely think of the brilliant comedic stylings of Key and Peele or Peele’s time on MadTV. You might even crack a big smile, thinking of Peele’s recent film Keanu. But I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t think of the words “horror maestro” when you see Jordan Peele’s name come across the screen. And that’s exactly what Peele can add to his resume résumé with his new movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed for the genre mogul Blumhouse.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Halloween-main

We’ve talked about a ‘Halloween‘ remake before here. Hell, Rob Zombie even made two remakes of ‘Halloween‘, which really didn’t live up to anything that resembled a horror film. But that was long ago and we like to forget such films ever took place. The original horror master and filmmaker John Carpenter, who made the original film is putting together a reincarnation of his own film and just announced that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will be writing and directing the new film. As you probably already know, McBride and Green have a long lasting relationship, as they both worked on ‘Pineapple Express’, ‘Eastbound and Down’, and the recent ‘Vice Principals’.

Good news, everyone. There is a new horror genre film festival looking to scare people next year, which will be called ‘The Overlook Film Festival‘ and will start on April 27th at Oregon’s Timberline Lodge, which was used (exterior shots) for Stanley Kubrick’s ‘The Shining’. Festival heads Michael Lerman and Landon Zakheim announced the event this Halloween and are planning on bringing classic films, new films, experimental events, and interactive fun to the Timberline Hotel. This first year will be a four day event and looks to be quite fun as it is being put on by a ton of people from the Alamo Drafthouse and ‘Fantastic Fest‘.

Film Review: ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

It’s Halloween season and the big horror movie studio Blumhouse has released another film in their canon franchise with their famous business plan. That movie is ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil‘, which is a prequel to ‘Ouija‘ from 2014. I know. I get suspicious too when a studio wants to start telling prequel stories to the masses. Most of the time, they don’t work, but Blumhouse and filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Oculus) really raised the bar with this prequel that is terrifying, fun, and connects the original film nicely, despite some silly problems here and there.

‘Benji’ Reboot Underway In New Orleans!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

benji-9

If you’re a director in Hollywood and you’ve got a movie near and dear to your heart that you don’t want to see bastardized with a remake, how can you prevent that? Well, if you’re Joe Camp, you get your son to be the one responsible for the remake. If this one gets messed up Christmas is pretty awkward, right? OK, I don’t know if that’s the exact way the reboot came about, but the bottom line is we’re getting a reboot of ‘Benji‘!!!

While in attendance at this years Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX I discovered that they have a lesser known track aptly titled Fantastic Market. Fantastic Market host pitches from filmmaker literally around the world. On top of the pitches they have provided work-in-progress screenings, panels from industry greats such as Travis Stevens (Snowfort Pictures) and Ryan Turek (BLUMHOUSE) mixers and a ton of other events.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

Insidious-4-Movie

Blumhouse is one of my favorite names when it comes to awesome scary movies and that name just popped up on the radar with another film sure to scare even the most stalwart film-goer. This company doesn’t just produce one-off horror flicks, they develop franchises and give us sequels that are every bit as awesome as the originals, some of these are ‘The Purge‘, ‘Ouija‘, ‘Paranormal Activity‘ and the ‘Insidious‘ powerhouse. The latter among these has got another installment headed our way with ‘Insidious: Chapter 4‘.

Film Review: ‘The Lazarus Effect’

Perhaps it’s just me, but it doesn’t seem like directors often follow an acclaimed documentary with a horror film. David Gelb, the director of Jiro Dreams of Sushi, did just that when taking on The Lazarus Effect, a movie by horror production company Blumhouse. With a talented cast and new take on the Frankenstein’s monster trope, Gelb creates a movie with genuine scares that missed an opportunity to delve into larger issues.

‘The Purge 3’ In Development Stage!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

11173717_800

 

Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes are beginning development on a third visit to a world where ‘The Purge‘ is a yearly event. If you’ve been in a cave the last few years, I’ll give you the high points. March 21 at 7pm until March 22 at 7am, is the annual purge. This is 12 hours where every crime imaginable is legal, police do not respond and emergency help of any kind is only what your neighbor is willing to do for you. Most families lock themselves away from the evil that lurks just outside the door. Yes, this is the movie franchise that began scaring communities when moronic teenagers began promoting the event for Louisville, KY in what turned out to be a hoax.

LeighWhannell20312

Oh, we knew the fun wasn’t dead, yet. If ‘Insidious‘ and ‘Insidious 2‘ made some cash, of course ‘Insidious: Chapter 3‘ will bring in even more! It’s the math of Hollywood. Blumhouse Productions has put the writer responsible for ‘Saw‘ and ‘Insidious‘, Leigh Whannell to direct. Whannell wrote and acted in the first two chapters of ‘Insidious‘ but will be making his directorial debut with this venture. The film is set to drop April 3, 2015.

Hello, Jana here,

creep-indie-movie

 

Festival season is always a great atmosphere to learn about a new band, artist or film. It can also be a great place for those independent film makers to find a distributing partner that will generate a bigger spotlight on their work. This is the case for the indie horror film ‘Creep‘. This low-budget thriller stars Patrick Brice as a videographer who answers an Craigslist ad to film a stranger (Mark Duplass) in a remote mountain town for a personal project that brings to light that the client is not at all what he initially seemed, with sinister repercussions.

Finally. I’m surprised it’s taken this long for there to be a spoof made from ‘The Fast and Furious‘.  The writer-director team of Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg who have both brought us’Vampires Suck‘, (as if ‘Twilight‘ didn’t already show us that), and ‘Meet The Spartans‘. Personally, they ought to be grateful King Leonidas isn’t around to kick their arses all over the place for that one, but I digress. They’re sticking to the method they know best by filling the roles in ‘Superfast‘ with up-and-comers.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse production company have jumped into the Haunted House business.  Blumhouse Productions was the company that got behind the ‘Paranormal Activity’ films.  “Visitors will tour the twisting corridors of an eerily haunted theater whose stage was home to one of the world’s most deranged, dark art magicians during the heyday of 1920s vaudeville. That is, until one tragic performance when his assistant climbed into a magical box and vanished forever. The theater was shut down instantly and permanently closed to the public … until now.”  Sounds cool, but not as cool as Eli Roth’s Goretorium.  Press release below.
