** Director talks DEATH NOTE: The most notable element of director Adam Wingard's take on DEATH NOTE is that the story is relocated from Japan to the United States. Speaking with IGN recently about the decision to use an American setting, Wingard says that the story simply couldn't be ported to anywhere in the world without fundamental adjustments to the core concept:
"In the early stages of the film I was reading all of the manga, really just looking at how does any of this translate to the United States. Ultimately, DEATH NOTE is such a Japanese thing. You can't just say let's port this over and it's all going to add up. They're two different worlds completely.
It's one of those things where the harder I tried to stay 100% true to the source material, the more it just kind of fell apart… You're in a different country, you're in a different kind of environment, and you're trying to also summarize a sprawling series into a two-hour long film."
The result was that the themes of the original manga had to be reconsidered from an American perspective: "Ultimately, whenever I say it's about America, I'm looking at it like, what are the main kind of core issues going on in America, what are the things that people chalk up to conspiracy theories? What kind of weird underground programs does the government have? How do these work in the world of DEATH NOTE."
DEATH NOTE is officially slated to be released on the streaming network on August 25th. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
** SOUND FROM THE DEEP: A mystery/horror short film inspired by works of H.P. Lovecraft. An international research group is searching natural resources from the newly melted waters of Arctic Ocean.

** AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON remake: Late last year came word that CHRONICLE writer Max Landis, son of famed filmmaker John Landis, was set to both pen and direct a remake of his father's iconic classic AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Not a peep more has been heard about the project since then, until the younger Landis appeared on The Rugged Man podcast this week and discussed some more details. First up he seems surprisingly demure regarding the chances of the remake moving forward and his ultimate goals with it:
"We'll see if I can do it. We'll see if I can pull it off. We'll see if they even make it. My goal is I feel like all of the best remakes focus on one thing in the original movie, take a lot of the images of the original and then remix that really tightly. With American Werewolf I'm doing that, but I'm also just gonna try and do American Werewolf as best I can. We'll see. I can't make no promises."
One thing he is happy to discuss though is a desire to approach the film from a very practical FX angle and to only apply CG judiciously in certain areas: "The thing I would do with CGI, were I directing this film, would be leg movement, and I would have the entire wolf's face, back and body be practical, and then I would fully CGI the legs for organic movements. If you remake American Werewolf and the transformation scene isn't practical, you have f–ked up." (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
** DEEP BLUE SEA sequel: Syfy is reportedly at work on a direct-to-TV sequel to Renny Harlin's 1998 killer shark movie. The Moviehole web site reports the project is shooting in Cape Town with Darin Scott directing and Michael Beach starring.

** OPEN WATER 3 CAGE DIVE: Three friends filming an audition tape for an extreme reality show, take part in shark cage diving, only to be left in great white infested waters, turning their recording into life and death.
** BLOOD FEAST remake: The horror film has been moved again, this time to July 28th. The good news is that BLOOD FEAST will now expand via Regal Entertainment to over 500 US markets on over 7300 screens in the US and via Cineplex Entertainment to over 160 locations in Canada. The bad news is that to achieve this wider release, the super-gory flick had to be "modestly edited" to get an MPAA approved R rating. (thanks to ComingSoon.net)

** CULT OF CHUCKY: The upcoming sequel is set to arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on October 3 in addition to a brand-new collection of all seven films in the franchise. The film stars Brad Dourif, who returns to voice the role of the titular killer doll, along with his daughter Fiona, reprising her role of Nica Pierce from 2013's CURSE OF CHUCKY. In addition, Alex Vincent returns as Andy Barclay from the first two CHILD'S PLAY films, along with Jennifer Tilly as Tiffany.
Confined to an asylum for the criminally insane for the past four years, Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) is erroneously convinced that she, not Chucky, murdered her entire family. But when her psychiatrist introduces a new therapeutic "tool" to facilitate his patients' group sessions — an all-too-familiar "Good Guy" doll with an innocently smiling face — a string of grisly deaths begins to plague the asylum, and Nica starts to wonder if maybe she isn't crazy after all. Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent), Chucky's now-grown-up nemesis from the original Child's Play, races to Nica's aid. But to save her he'll have to get past Tiffany (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Tilly), Chucky's long-ago bride, who will do anything, no matter how deadly or depraved, to help her beloved devil doll.

** Kevin Bacon returns to TREMORS: In late 2015, it was revealed that actor Kevin Bacon would reprise his role of Valentine McKee and executive produce a new TREMORS series for TV. Now the star has confirmed to Screen Daily web site that not only is the pilot a go, but it has found a home at cable channel Syfy.
"We are going to do a pilot for Syfy," Bacon confirmed. "It's the only character I've ever played that I was interested in exploring 25 years later. It [TREMORS] is a really good movie. I don't go back and watch my movies but because we were doing this one, I had to go back and look at it. It's just the idea of this loser who is living a very ordinary life and has an extraordinary experience with these monsters and becomes, for a moment, a hero." (thanks to ComingSoon.net)
** THE CONJURING 3: According to the Deadline web site, THE CONJURING 3 has begun active development at Warner Bros.

Directed by Adam (YOU'RE NEXT) Wingard, DEATH NOTE will premiere globally on Netflix August 25. (thanks to ComingSoon.net)
** Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER: Director Nikolaj Arcel recently spoke with IGN and re-affirmed that the upcoming film is a sequel to the Stephen King book series as opposed to a direct adaptation: "It is, in fact, a continuation. It is a canon continuation. That's exactly what we intended and what Stephen King has signed off on."
Arcel also says King is happy with the way that the movie turned out despite it being different from his original novel: "At one point he said, 'I have some notes for script.' And he sent us a hard copy of the script, with hand-written notes. He was very polite and very respectful. It was always like, 'Maybe Roland doesn't talk so much here'… he was just like the groundskeeper of the characters.
After he saw the film for the first time, (King wrote to me), 'This is not exactly my novel, but this is very much in the spirit and the tone. And I'm very happy.'" Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey lead the cast of the film which opens worldwide on August 17th. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** Stephen King's IT R-rated: New Line and Warner Bros. Pictures' new film adaptation of Stephen King's iconic monster novel has received an official R-rating by the MPAA – just as expected as director Andres Muschetti and producers have mentioned several times in the past that they were shooting for an R.
The rating has been handed out for "violence/horror, bloody images, and for language." The book famously includes plenty of dark material cut from or toned down in the previous TV adaptation, that shouldn't be the case here bar the infamous teen gang bang scene which won't be included.

GOREZONE is 19 years old!
19 years ago, the Internet was totally different. There was no Facebook, no Instagram, no Twitter, no Smartphones... actually most people had never "surfed" the world wide web. Back in June 1998, I decided to start GOREZONE because of the lack of coverage for the horror genre on the Internet. There was tons of sites dedicated to STAR WARS and STAR TREK, yet apart from a few good horror sites such as HorrorMovies.com and HouseofHorrors.com, the net was leaving me wanting for more. GOREZONE was born as the first web site dedicated to daily horror news. 19 years later GOREZONE is still alive, independant and true to its original concept. We never sold out. Never gave up.
I would like to thanks everyone who took the time to read, talk or promote the site, I really appreciate it. Keep horror alive!

The immediate next film in the series is Bill Condon's BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN which is scheduled for a February 2019 release. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** HALLOWEEN reboot poster: The Licensing Expo 2017 is underway in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center this week with early artwork and promo posters now on display for a number of films not scheduled for release until well into next year. Here's the one for the upcoming HALLOWEEN reboot. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
** JEEPERS CREEPERS 4: After a fourteen year break since the last one, the third film in the JEEPERS CREEPERS saga is on the way and is targeting a release sometime later this year or early next year. The film has already wrapped production, and today comes word the creative team behind the third instalment is confident enough that a fourth film is already planned.
Actress Gina Phillips, reprising her role as Trish from the first film, tells Diabolique Magazine that the film's director Victor Salva has already written a fourth film which will pick up right after the events of the third: "The plan is for this stuff to go to the screen in the next JEEPERS CREEPERS movie. Victor has written what happens from the second after the conclusion of JEEPERS CREEPERS 3. I think that's all I'm allowed to say about it but he wrote in such detail and he had a lot of flashbacks to what happened over the years that it made it very easy for me."
"I got to see what will eventually happen to the character and he put enough flashbacks in there that I got to see what happened to her over the last 15 years. Let's just say, there's more to come…a lot has changed for Trish over the years. She's a mother; she's been through a lot.""
In the third film, Trish Jenner is now a rich and powerful woman who has a teenage son named Darry. She's also having a recurring nightmare in which he's killed by the Creeper. To prevent this from happening, Trish sets out on a final quest, with a small army in tow, to end the reign of terror of The Creeper (Jonathan Breck) once and for all. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
** THE MUMMY reboot: Here's two new posters for the upcoming film.
----- May 24, 2017 -----
** George A. Romero's ROAD OF THE DEAD: The director has announced plans for a new NASCAR-esque zombie movie in the works that will be shopped at the Fantasia International Film Festival market this July.
Romero co-wrote the script with Matt Birman, who is slated to direct this project set on a remote island where zombie prisoners race cars in a modern-day Coliseum, all for the entertainment of affluent humans. Said to draw major inspiration from 1959's BEN-HUR, no further details are available at this time. Romero, Birman, Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell will produce. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
** Milla Jovovich on RESIDENT EVIL reboot: Actress Milla Jovovich was asked about the reboot, and she had a remarkably candid response: "Okay, well good luck with that."
"I think a lot of people with these franchises kind of put the cart before the horse," Jovovich continued telling ComicBook.com. "There's a danger to that. They've been wanting to reboot RESIDENT EVIL for a long time, and listen: I love the RESIDENT EVIL world. I think it's a great property, I would do it if I was a producer."
But Jovovich had a heartfelt plea to the producers, and perhaps to all producers. "I think what made RESIDENT EVIL so special is that the people involved really loved what they're doing and really were fans of the game," she said. "I would suggest that you find people that have that same passion for the property before you talk about reboots. I think if you get into this kind of genre, people are very sensitive to fakes. There's some real fans in the sci-fi/action/horror world, and they're not idiots. They can smell when something is done because people love it and when something is done just to monetize an opportunity."
** WISH UPON: Twelve years after discovering her mother's suicide, 17-year-old CLARE SHANNON (Joey King) is bullied in high school, embarrassed by her manic, hoarder father JONATHAN (Ryan Phillippe) and ignored by her longtime crush.

While Clare is initially skeptical of this magic box, she can't help but be seduced by its dark powers, and is thrilled as her life radically improves with each wish. Clare finally has the life she's always wanted and everything seems perfect - until the people closest to her begin dying in violent and elaborate ways after each wish. Clare realizes that she must get rid of the box, but finds herself unable and unwilling to part with her new-and-improved life - leading her down a dark and dangerous path. Be careful what you wish for...
** Universal's Dark Universe: Christopher McQuarrie and David Koepp have reportedly come on board the initiative, while Bill Condon is confirmed to be directing BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN which Koepp will pen and which has set a February 14th 2019 release date. An actress has reportedly been chosen but hasn't been announced yet.
The initiative kicks off with THE MUMMY next month starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. All three actors have teamed up with Johnny Depp and Javier Bardem for a portrait shot the studio released above for the announcement.
Bardem is set to play Frankenstein and Depp will play The Invisible Man in subsequent films currently in development under the stewardship of Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan. On screen, they are linked by the mysterious multi-national organization known as Prodigium led by Crowe's enigmatic and brilliant Dr. Henry Jekyll.
Prodigium's mission is to track, study and—when necessary—destroy evil embodied in the form of monsters in our world. Working outside the aegis of any government, and with practices concealed by millennia of secrecy, Prodigium protects the public from knowledge of the evil that exists just beyond the thin membrane of civilized society…and will go to any length to contain it.

** HALLOWEEN reboot: Since Danny McBride and David Gordon Green were announced as the creative force behind rebooting the HALLOWEEN franchise in February, there has been skepticism that they should be the duo to do it. While fans of horror are excited that John Carpenter will be back to produce, McBride and Green's catalogue together mostly consists of comedy projects.
While doing press for ALIEN COVENANT, McBride went on the Empire Film Podcast and talked a little about what their take is going to be:
Look at where the HALLOWEEN franchise has gone. There's a lot of room for improvement. David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are humongous fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original HALLOWEEN, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we're just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original."
And when talking about the original itself and making Michael "scary" again:
It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn't corny and it wasn't turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn't be killed. That stuff to me isn't scary. I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen.
I think it's much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while you're taking the trash out as opposed to someone who can't be killed pursuing you." (thanks to BleedingCool.com
