WATCH: THE LEGACY OF CHUCKY Featurette Goes In For The Kill

Posted by Josh Korngut on July 29, 2021 chucky tv series - WATCH: THE LEGACY OF CHUCKY Featurette Goes In For The Kill

Chucky fans, rejoice! The upcoming SYFY series has dropped a mini-documentary about the tv show. Discover how the show fits in with Chucky’s gory legacy. 

The featurette is full of easter eggs teases and interviews with the cast and creatives behind the new show. Everyone involved with the upcoming series gets in front of the camera to share their experience with your favorite Good Guy. 

Check it out:

Chucky synopsis:

An idyllic American town is thrown into chaos after a vintage ‘Good Guy’ doll turns up at a suburban yard sale. Soon, everyone must grapple with a series of horrifying murders. Now they begin to expose the town’s deep hypocrisies and hidden secrets. Meanwhile, friends and foes from Chucky’s past creep back into his world and threaten to expose the truth behind his mysterious origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster. 

Subsequently, fresh faces appearing in the Chucky series are Zackary Arthur (Transparent), Lexa Doig (Jason X) and Devon Sawa (Final Destination). In addition, returning franchise favorites include Jennifer Tilly, Fiona Dourif, Alex Vincent, Christine Elise, and Brad Dourif (who provides the voice of Chucky). 

We’re psyched that Chucky is honouring the queer roots of the series by writing the lead as a gay teen. Queer visibility in horror is a great thing, so hats off to creator Don Mancini who keeps giving us excellent killer doll content. 

Chucky premieres on SYFY and USA on October 12th and we are counting down the goddamn days. 

Lastly, are you as excited about the new show as I am? Do you have reservations about a legacy franchise hitting the small screen?

Let me know!

Shudder Unveils New Poster For Kafkaesque MOSQUITO STATE

Posted by Josh Korngut on July 29, 2021 MOSQUITO 01 scaled - Shudder Unveils New Poster For Kafkaesque MOSQUITO STATE

Director Filip Jan Rymsza will see his festival darling Mosquito State released later this summer thanks to an exclusive deal with streaming service Shudder.

The unsettling Mosquito State script is by Rymsza and Mario Zermeno. The films stars Beau Knapp, Charlotte Vega, Jack Kesy, Olivier Martinez.

Check out the brand new poster:

Mosquito State Synopsis:

Isolated in his austere penthouse overlooking Central Park. The obsessive Wall Street data analyst Richard Boca (Beau Knapp) sees ominous patterns. His computer models are behaving erratically, as are the swarms of mosquitos breeding in his apartment. An infestation that attends his psychological meltdown.

Wall Street “quants”—the intense data analysts whose mathematical prowess can make the difference between a fortune and a flop. Consumed with his work, Richard doesn’t often stray from his office or apartment. But when Richard decides to go to a company party, he makes two acquaintances: the mysterious, sylphlike Lena (Charlotte Vega) and one pesky mosquito, both of which take root in his mind, altering his existence in profound ways.

Finding common ground between Franz Kafka, David Cronenberg and Mary Harron’s AMERICAN PSYCHO, director-screenwriter Filip Jan Rymsza emerges with a new kind of body horror, set during a single week of an exquisitely rendered pre-crash 2007 replete with signs of sociopolitical and economic rot. A hypnotic plunge into the fragile mentality of an individual who can see patterns long before the rest of us, MOSQUITO STATE adds a significant chapter to the subgenre of urban isolation.

Jamie Lee Curtis Says She Supports Her Trans Daughter

Posted by Josh Korngut on July 29, 2021 jamie lee curtis scream queens - Jamie Lee Curtis Says She Supports Her Trans Daughter

Jamie Lee Curtis has shared her proud support for daughter Ruby who has come out as a trans woman. With Ruby’s permission, Curtis discussed her feelings about her daughter’s gender-affirming journey. While we’ve always loved Jamie Lee Curtis, we’re thrilled to see her lovingly embrace Ruby’s true identity. 

In her recent AARP profile, Curtis spoke of how she has proudly “watched in wonder as our son became our daughter Ruby.” The horror icon also shares that Ruby is a gaming editor and getting married next month! Way to go Ruby. Career and love both figured out by 25. What more could a mom hope for?

And guess what?

Jamie is ready to officiate the wedding herself. What an event of a lifetime. If anyone can get me a ticket please make sure to message me ASAP. I’ll bartend if need be. 

While the Halloween Kills star seems to be living her best life right now, she also touched base on when things weren’t as easy for the star. The interview dives into her recovery from her opioid addiction and its long-lasting impact on her life. We’re so thrilled that our favorite scream queen is healthy and sober, but we understand that addiction is complicated. Jamie does a thoughtful job of explaining her personal healing journey in the interview, sharing the “great mental migration” she has been through.

What’s all the more interesting is that Curtis says she owes some of her healing to Ruby’s coming out. She even discusses how she was able to turn around her false beliefs, and now sees that gender is not a fixed binary. Curtis used the term “constant metamorphosis” when describing her road to sobriety, and how she views her daughter’s personal growth. 

The part of all this that I find most exciting is the extension of the Scream Queen legacy! Jaime Lee Curtis is herself the daughter of horror icon Janet Leigh (Psycho), and now she has a second daughter herself to potentially carry the torch! Okay, so I’m getting ahead of myself — but who doesn’t love a horror legacy?

JAWS-Themed Musical BRUCE Will Take a Bite Out of Seattle in 2022

Posted by Josh Millican on July 29, 2021 Jaws banner - JAWS-Themed Musical BRUCE Will Take a Bite Out of Seattle in 2022

the shark-horror classic Jaws (directed by Steven Spielberg and released in 1975) is being reimagined as a musical. It’ll be based on screenwriter Carl Gottlieb’s 1975 memoir The Jaws Log. The theater company Seattle Rep plans to open the show in May of 2022.

Deadline got the scoop, reporting:

Featuring music by Richard Oberacker and book and lyrics by Oberacker and Robert Taylor (the team behind the 2017 Broadway musical Bandstand), Bruce tells the story of a virtually unknown 26-year-old director named Steven Spielberg who in 1974 sets out to film an adaptation of the best-selling novel Jaws.

While invading a sleepy fishing island off Cape Cod to shoot on the open ocean, he faced several challenges including weather, water, hostile locals, an exploding budget, endless delays, and a highly dysfunctional mechanical star named Bruce, to bring his vision to life in what proved to be one of the biggest success stories in film history.

Previews for Bruce will kick off on May 27th, 2022 at Seattle’s Bagley Wright Theater; the production will kick off in earnest on June 1st and run through June 26th, 2022.

“Bruce” is the unofficial name given to the mechanical great white shark in Jaws.

DREAD: THE UNSOLVED Explores the Alien Abduction of Travis Walton

Posted by Jans Holstrom on July 29, 2021 Dread the Unsolved Travis Walton - DREAD: THE UNSOLVED Explores the Alien Abduction of Travis Walton


November 5th, 1975, Travis Walton was working as a lumberjack in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. After a hard day at work, he loaded up in a truck with six of his coworkers and headed back towards the nearest town, Snowflake, Arizona. As they drove on, with night settling in, they witnessed a saucer-shaped object just a hundred feet in front of them.

The truck was stopped and, after an argument, Travis decided to approach the strange craft. As he got closer, he says a beam of light struck him and he blacked out. His friends, terrified at this development, left Travis where he lay, and sped off into the night.

Once they had gotten about a quarter of a mile away, they say they saw the alien craft zip skywards. They returned to look for Travis but according to them, he was gone.

Meanwhile, Travis claims he awoke in what he thought was a hospital. He looked up to the doctors working on him and realized they were short, bald, humanoid aliens. He says he fought with them for a time before they placed a plastic wrap over his face, and things went dark again. Other times, when Travis tells this part of the story, he runs away from the aliens and gets into a control room, where he claims that he was approached by a human wearing blue coveralls and a helmet. He explains that this strange person led him through the ship, showing off the hangars and other amenities, before bringing him back to an examination room, where he’s knocked unconscious by one of the earlier aliens.

Travis’ co-workers returned to town and spoke with authorities, who were skeptical. They believed that the 6 other workers had murdered Walton due to a disagreement earlier in the day. With no evidence supporting their claims, all they could do was work the investigation, and wait.

November 10th, 1975: Travis Walton states he woke up in the forest where he was abducted. His clothes were on backward. He states that he remembers seeing the craft close its doors and float into the distance. He wandered to a phone booth in Heber, Arizona, roughly 30 miles southwest of where he was taken. He claims the town was strangely completely empty. He places a call to his brother-in-law on the payphone and is back at home within an hour.

His attempts at recovering quietly at home were quickly thwarted. Travis Walton was on the lips of every UFO researcher and tabloid journalist in the country at that point. A man had seemingly been taken for five days and returned. No one was going to leave Travis alone. He was immediately put on the defensive, and given a lie detector test. He failed spectacularly. Some say this was due to the fresh trauma of being abducted, while others claim he had been hiding in the wilderness for five days and hadn’t gotten his story straight just yet. He would go on to pass subsequent tests.

Not everyone believed Travis. His most vocal detractor was UFOlogist Phillip Klass. He noted that the Sheriff that was familiar with the case stated that Walton, along with his mother and brother-in-law, were huge fans of alien media. He posited that just two weeks earlier, Walton had watched The UFO Incident, a fictionalized portrayal of the abduction of Betty and Barney Hill. Details in Walton’s story allegedly closely matched what was shown in the film.

According to Travis, the area where he was abducted began acting strangely. UFOlogists and Walton claim, without concrete truth, that the trees in the area have begun growing faster. They claim that core samples have shown increased growth at least 15 years after Walton’s abduction. Tests were allegedly done that show a chemical change in the soil in the area. The tree trunks that faced the UFO reportedly have incredibly wide and elliptical rings in their cores.

Walton maintains he was abducted. He thinks it wasn’t on purpose though. He believes that he wandered too close to aliens studying the environment, and got accidentally knocked out by their tools. He thinks he might have been airlifted onto the ship to make sure he was okay.

These days, the area where the event happened is a very different place than it was in 1975. In 2002, a wildfire destroyed the area. The logging road Travis and his friends were on that night has since been decommissioned by the Forest Service.

In 1979 Travis wrote a book about his experience called Fire in the Sky, which was adapted into a horror film in 1993 (trailer below). Travis Walton never went back to logging and has spent the last 40+ years touring the country, giving talks at UFO conventions. He occasionally takes groups up to the area in the  Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest where something extraordinary, whether it was extraterrestrial or a hoax, happened all those years ago.

So what do you think? Was Travis Walton abducted by aliens? Or maybe this whole thing is just a hoax between friends gone wrong. I’ll leave it up to you.

THE HAUNTED MANSION Now Casts Tiffany Haddish and LaKeith Stanfield

Posted by Josh Korngut on July 29, 2021 get out trailer - THE HAUNTED MANSION Now Casts Tiffany Haddish and LaKeith Stanfield

Disney’s The Haunted Mansion will open its doors once again very soon. In recent months the project has announced a director, writer, producing team and now a potential A-List cast!

Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter announced both Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip) and LaKeith Stanfield (Get Out) are in active negotiations to star in the upcoming reboot. 

Earlier this year we got word that director Justin Simien (Bad Hair) is in line to direct the big-budget Disney project. This news comes not long after Disney announces the script is by comedy writer Katie Dippold (Ghostbusters).

The story will reportedly follow a young family who movies into everyone’s favorite haunted grande estate.

Stanfield is in line to play a widower who once believed in ghosts but is now living a meaningless present life as a tour guide in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Tiffany Haddish is playing a psychic who has been hired to speak with the dead. Sounds fun!

The all-new movie begins production on location in NOLA this fall. What a mood. It will follow the recent Disney attraction adaptation Jungle Cruise which opens this week. 

The latest iteration of The Haunted Mansion will have no connection to the lacklustre 2003 Disney outing. With all of the excellent talent now attached, our hopes for The Haunted Mansion continue to grow…

The reboot was originally assigned to horror icon Guillermo del Toro back in 2009. The Dread Central podcast Development Hell recently dove into why that version of the film fell through the cracks. 

Haddish last appeared in Netflix’s comedy hit Bad Trip. Next up she stars in the bonkers Nicolas Cage meta-movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, which Lionsgate is setting free in 2022.

Rory Culkin and Isabelle Fuhrman Star in Period Horror THE LAST THING MARY SAW Premiering at Fantasia

Posted by Josh Millican on July 29, 2021 The last thing mary saw banner - Rory Culkin and Isabelle Fuhrman Star in Period Horror THE LAST THING MARY SAW Premiering at Fantasia

Director Edoardo Vitaletti’s The Last Thing Mary Saw will premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival on August 15th and 17th.

Related Article: THE FANTASIA FILM FESTIVAL Announces Scary Final Wave Of Films!

The Last Thing Mary Saw is a period occult drama set in an isolated farmhouse in the winter of 1843, where a young woman is under investigation following the mysterious death of her family’s matriarch. It soon becomes apparent that ageless forces are at play, from within and without. With a talented cast and stunning visuals, you can’t miss it.

Today, producers released some choice images from the film! Check them out and read more about the movie below.

Southold, New York, 1843: Young Mary (Stefanie Scott), blood trickling from behind the blindfold tied around her eyes, is interrogated about the events surrounding her grandmother’s death. As the story jumps back in time, we witness Mary, raised in a repressively religious household, finding fleeting happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Isabelle Fuhrman), the home’s maid. Her family, who believe they are seeing, speaking, and acting on God’s behalf, view the girls’ relationship as an abomination, to be dealt with as severely as possible. The couple attempts to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, or listening, and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death, with the tension only heightened by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Rory Culkin) and the revelation of forces other than the Lord at work.

“Fear and weakness keep us here, not devotion,” says Theodore (PJ Sosko), the guard who has been disabled to assure he remains on the property, and that sums up The Last Thing Mary Saw in a single evocative sentence.

First-time feature writer/director Edoardo Vitaletti swiftly establishes an oppressive, intolerant milieu in which the inability to recite the Lord’s Prayer can be punishable by a rifle shot. Within this claustrophobic, starkly photographed environment, two actresses recognizable from contemporary genre stories – Insidious: Chapter 3’s Scott and Orphan and Cell’s Fuhrman – slip easily and compassionately into the skins of young women victimized by prejudices of a bygone era.

“Appropriate for a story about ‘the love that dare not speak its name,’ lengthy stretches of The Last Thing Mary Saw play without dialogue, the emotions conveyed by looks and gestures and atmosphere,” says famed horror critic Michael Gingold. “Vitaletti, along with his first-rate craft collaborators and cast (also including Eraserhead’s Judith Roberts as the creepily imposing matriarch), has crafted an impressive debut film in which the horror seeps gradually into the artfully wrought picture, drawn out by the worst impulses of the human soul and exacerbated by supernatural malevolence.”

New DON’T BREATHE 2 Poster Calls Back To The First Film

Posted by Josh Korngut on July 29, 2021 DOnt Breathe 2 1 - New DON’T BREATHE 2 Poster Calls Back To The First Film

Don’t Breathe 2 is finally seeing a theatrical release on August 13th. And word through the grapevine is we’re in store for a killer sequel… 

Just in time to whet our appetites further, Bloody Disgusting sourced one hella cool international poster for the upcoming movie. In this new poster, we get a good look at both of the leading characters.

The sales art depicts Stephen Lang (as The Blind Man) as hovers protectively behind the young girl (Madelyn Grace). The Blind Man’s super-objective has always been fatherhood, so the dude isn’t thrilled when kidnappers come for his daughter…

Personally, I’m glad to see the marketing materials harken back to the stark choices used on the first poster. It’s clean and simple and scary. 

Check it out:


In Don’t Breathe, Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang) was underestimated by everyone because of his blindness: he revealed an unflinching will to survive and get what he wants… but also a monstrous, evil side of his personality, as nothing – no person or conscience – will stand in his way. Now, in Don’t Breathe 2, eight years later, Nordstrom lives with 11-year-old Phoenix; he has recreated the family that was stolen from him by a drunk driver and has found the twisted justice he’s always felt was his due. When intruders once again come to his home, this time focused on Phoenix, Norman will reveal for a second time what’s hidden inside him… and again, it will be in new and unexpected ways.

Don’t Breathe choked up over $150 cool mill at the box office when it came out in 2016. Let’s see if we can get a full on franchise in the pipeline for everyone’s favorite blind daddy!

Don’t Breathe 2 is en route to us from Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe co-writer Rodo Sayagues and is scheduled for theatrical release on August 13, 2021!
