Paramount+ has a weird selection of horror films. I watched Case 39 the other night and it cemented my child free lifestyle for me. By the end I was only watching because I'd wasted too much time on it. On the flip side, Jacob's Ladder is still so good. The opening massacre is gross, especially the foot just hanging there.

When (refuse to say "if") we do Halloween Havoc this year we need to have some kind of jackpot where the booby prize is you have to watch Halloween Kills. 

Yeah, I was thinking that Halloween Kills would be a great idea for the Xanadu prize if SKoS ever put the Summer Blockbuster Pool back together.

I'll just volunteer for it now. I haven't seen it yet so my hopes haven't been shattered yet.

God.  Why is it that Dino De Laurentis's reveal of King Kong with Rick Baker wearing a gorilla suit is so much better than Peter Jackson's reveal of King Kong created with millions of dollars of CGI?

That's a rhetorical question.  I already know that the answer is Because Rick Baker with love from the John Barry soundtrack.

WEREWOLVES WITHIN

Director: Josh Ruben

Starring: Sam Richardson, Milana Vayntrub, Cheyenne Jackson, Catherine Curtin, Michaela Watkins

I missed the limited release last Summer because COVID.  Thank God it will debut on Showtime on February 5th.

I suppose you could say this is also a video game adaptation since it is based on:

It wasn't THAT bad... well, maybe it was, I need to see it again. But the divisiveness of it is something to share amongst ourselves in any case. 

I actually bought it today. Most likely watching it tomorrow.

What we know about the Hellraiser reboot coming allegedly in 2022:

  • It will be exclusively on Hulu. No plans for a theatrical release.
  • Dave Bruckner (The Night House, The Ritual, Super Dark Times) will direct.  At least the relief of knowing there is a decent horror director at the helm.
  • Jamie Clayton (Sense8, The L Word:  Generation Q) will play "Pinhead" and like Doug Bradley's iconic creation, will never directly be referred to as "Pinhead."  Bruckner cast Clayton in the role of because he wants the Cenobites to look more gender neutral / genderless like they are in the novella.

The Hulu movie will be competing against a Hellraiser limited series being developed for HBO Max which supposedly is also in production and should be out sometime this year.

FROM

Coming to Epix in February.

Quote

From the executive producers of Lost, FROM unravels the mystery of a nightmarish town in middle America that traps all those who enter. As the unwilling residents fight to keep a sense of normalcy and search for a way out, they must also survive the threats of the surrounding forest – including the terrifying creatures that come out when the sun goes down.

I recorded about half of it but only got to see 15 minutes or so.

EDIT: It's on again right now, and Showtime is fucking with me again by not offering showtimes! I guess they really want their On Demand to pop off.

I guess it's time to cross post the movie poster for Nope from last year's horror thread to this one.

That link goes to the Firestarter remake (it is age restricted so can only be watched on Youtube)

Trailer - as per usually when it comes to Horror - seems to be all "Here is the entire movie!" but it isn't like this is an original story either
