** HALLOWEEN reboot remake sequel: Writer Danny McBride recently spoke with Cinema Blend about the movie; "You know, it's not a remake," Danny McBride said. "It's actually, it's gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we're focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there."

McBridge says that the film will start with the first two movies and essentially let the continuity play out after that, which essentially makes it HALLOWEEN III.

"Green and I are definitely going to [do] a straight-up horror," Danny McBride said. "HALLOWEEN has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. There's a simplicity and an efficiency to that first one that I think allows the movies just to be scary as hell. And so Green and I, our approach is to get back to that."

** CULT OF CHUCKY: Here's the cover of the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release.

** Darren Aronofsky's mother!: Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer star in mother!, directed by Darren Aronofsky. See it in theatres 9.15.

** THE DEAD NEXT DOOR 2K restoration: Tempe Entertainment announces the launch of its Blu-ray label Tempe Digital with the September 26 release of the 1990 landmark independent shocker THE DEAD NEXT DOOR. Priced at $29.95 SRP, this 2-Disc Collector's Edition includes the same Blu-ray from the company's limited (and now out of print) 3-Disc Ultimate Edition, along with an all-new DVD featuring a collectible slipcover and three new bonus features.

** Universal Dark Universe: In a recent interview with IGN, THE MUMMY director Alex Kurtzman was asked about his status on the Dark Universe franchise. The Dark Universe, for those who don't know, is the Marvel Studios-esque "shared universe" idea that Universal Pictures is trying with the classic "Universal Monsters" like Dracula, the Wolfman, the Invisible Man, and the aforementioned Mummy. This was intended to start with the Luke Evans-led DRACULA UNTOLD, but that proved to be a non-starter with unimpressive box office returns and a critical panning.

Alex Kurtzman was intended to be one of the creative directors of the franchise along with fellow director Chris Morgan. However, THE MUMMY (2017) was also received with a critical panning and disappointing box office profits. Despite this, Universal seems intent on forcing this thing to stumble onwards, possibly due to sinking money on special effects and actors like Tom Cruise, Russell Crowe, and Johnny Depp.

When IGN asked Alex Kurtzman about his status in the Dark Universe series of films, he said, "You know the truth is, I don't know. I really don't know. I haven't really decided. Is the honest answer." That sounds like a frustrated and exhausted answer, which is understandable given that he's probably been fielding this question a lot lately and just had an expensive box office bomb on his hands.

They continued with asking him about how to know you're done with a franchise, to which Kurtzman said, "I have to stay interested in it. I have to feel like my passion is there for it. I think in the case of STAR TREK if your passion isn't there you shouldn't be doing it." (thanks to BleedingCool.com)

** CLOWNTERGEIST: Premiering on VOD September 12 from High Octane Pictures! Emma, a college student with a crippling fear of clowns, must come face to face with her worst fear when an evil spirit in the body of a clown is summoned terrorizing the town she calls home.

After receiving her balloon, Emma realizes that she has two days left to live, and must fight against the clock to find a way to survive.

** FREDDY VS JASON 1997 teaser found: This was made six years before the movie would finally be released to theaters!

** Stephen King's THE DARK TOWER: Overcoming heinous reviews, the Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey-led fantasy feature is set to come in at a modest $19.5 million for the three days, topping the box-office.

** Stephen King's PET SEMETARY remake: The early word on the new first film of a two-film adaptation of Stephen King's IT is excellent. Should it succeed, director Andres Muschietti and his sister and the film's producer Barbara Muschietti have hinted that they're keen to tackle other works in the King canon.

The pair already own the film rights to King's 1981 sci-fi horror short story THE JAUNT, but in an interview published yesterday by The Toronto Sun, Barbara Muschietti says there's one book they're particularly keen on adapting: "We're huge fans of PET SEMETARY. If we can get our hands on that and do the PET SEMETARY we want to do, that will be something. One day, maybe."

The 1983 novel deals with a family who moves into a house by a busy highway, while a nearby nature walk leads to a rundown animal cemetery and, further on, an ancient Indian burial ground which can bring things back to life (albeit changed). (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** Stephen King's IT: The British Board of Film Classification has announced that Andy Muschietti's IT, the upcoming first of a two-film adaptation of the iconic Stephen King novel, has a runtime of 135 minutes. The previous mini-series adaptation in 1990 ran 192 minutes, but the new IT film is essentially only half the book with a second film due to shoot early next year. That film will deal with the other half in which the kids have become adults (though there are expected to be flashback scenes with the same kids).

Barring the unexpected, the second film will have to clock in at no less than 85 minutes and more likely closer to the two-hour mark which would mean the pair together would run longer than the original mini-series by up to an hour. Clocking in at 1,140 pages, the book is one of King's larger works and so any adaptation needs a serious runtime to cover it. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** MY FRIEND DAHMER: Before Jeffrey Dahmer became a notorious serial killer, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, this is the true, haunting story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.

** Stephen King's IT: Stephen King's iconic work is such a dense and sprawling novel that doing it in a single film is near impossible. Warner Bros. Pictures realized this when planning the upcoming film adaptation, and so decided to split it into two.

The story is set in a small town in Maine, where seven children known as The Losers Club come face to face with life problems, bullies, and a child-eating, sewer-dwelling monster that takes the shape of a clown called Pennywise (Bill Skarsgard). Much like the mini-series adaptation, the film was going to have the kids as the focus of the first film and the adult versions of those characters the focus of the second. However, talk of the second film seemingly dried up once production began last year.

Finally, a month-and-a-half out from the release of the first film, director Andres Muschietti has gone on the record about the second film and offers an update on plans for it. He tells Variety today: "We are doing that [two films]. We'll probably have a script for the second part in January. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 30 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids."

By that schedule filming would begin mid-2018. The first IT began filming June 2016 which would suggest the second film could be released on the same weekend as the first film but in 2019.

Muschietti also addressed the only major concern that has been raised by the very well-received first trailer – that is the film's handling of Pennywise. Judging by the footage so far he's only been seen as a mute and creepy presence, but the helmer says you'll also see the cute side to the character: "I wanted to stay true to the essence of the character. I knew that I didn't want to go the road of Tim Curry [who played Pennywise in the TV miniseries]. Bill Skarsgard caught my attention. The character has a childish and sweet demeanour, but there's something very off about him. Bill has that balance in him. He can be sweet and cute, but he can be pretty disturbing."

Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Nicholas Hamilton, Jack Dylan Grazer, Wyatt Oleff, Chosen Jacobs, and Jeremy Ray Taylor also star in the first film which opens September 8th. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** JIGSAW: Lionsgate (via Entertainment Weekly) has released a new photo from JIGSAW, the eighth film in the Saw horror franchise (formerly titled SAW LEGACY).

"Bodies are turning up, and they're linked to Jigsaw — or a Jigsaw copycat," said Peter Spierig. "The DNA of Tobin Bell is all over this film."

"We've got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don't shy away from the gore," says Michael Spierig. "It's such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It's perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it's still full of good fun gore, that's for sure.

** JIGSAW: Lionsgate (via Entertainment Weekly) has released a new photo from JIGSAW, the eighth film in the Saw horror franchise (formerly titled SAW LEGACY).

"Bodies are turning up, and they're linked to Jigsaw — or a Jigsaw copycat," said Peter Spierig. "The DNA of Tobin Bell is all over this film."

"We've got some pretty wild traps in the film — we don't shy away from the gore," says Michael Spierig. "It's such a perfect Halloween scarefest. It's perhaps not quite as vicious and more fun, which is something we tried to inject into it. But it's still full of good fun gore, that's for sure. And, on top of that, it's got a really great mystery, and there's very interesting twists. It's SAW for 2017."

JIGSAW will arrive just ahead of Halloween, debuting on October 27. (thanks to ComingSoon.net)

** 1974: Broad Green Pictures has announced plans for 1974, Casey La Scala's horror film inspired by true events about the house at the center of the famed AMITYVILLE HORROR.

A year later, a family moved into the house and then fled due to what was claimed to be paranormal activity.

Eli Roth and Todd Garner will produce and a production start date is still being determined. Numerous films about the incident have been made from 1979's original hit to the 2005 reboot with Ryan Reynolds. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** 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)

** 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.

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.

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)

** David Fincher confirmed for WORLD WAR Z sequel: In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paramont's Jim Gianopulos confirms what has been a rumour for quite some time.

** 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!

** Oats Studios Experimental Short Films: Here's the trailer for VOLUME 1.

** Universal Dark Universe: Alex Kurtzman has shared more characters that will be joining the Dark Universe. "We know we're going to do Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Dracula, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Phantom of the Opera, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Invisible Man," he says.

He added: "There are characters within those films that can grow and expand and maybe even spin off. I think that digging into deep mythologies about monsters around the world is fair game for us, as well and connecting the monsters that we know to some surprising monsters could also be really interesting."

"I'd love to bring Michael Fassbender in, I'd love to bring Jennifer Lawrence in, I'd love to see Charlize Theron in there, Angelina Jolie…" (thanks to ComingSoon.net)

Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum. It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it. Matthew McConaughey also stars.





** Stephen King's THE MIST: Based on a story by Stephen King, Spike's THE MIST centers around a small town family that is torn apart by a brutal crime.

** IT COMES AT NIGHT: Set in a post-apocalyptic wilderness, the story follows a group of survivors (Joel Edgerton, Carmen Ejogo and son Kelvin Harrison Jr) who welcome in a newcomer couple (Christopher Abbott and Riley Keough), only to find their survival at stake.



** Universal Dark Universe: Universal launches its Dark Universe initiative with THE MUMMY next week starring Tom Cruise, Sofia Boutella and Russell Crowe. That film, which is rumoured to have a post-rebate budget of $125 million, looks to be emblematic of the other movies in the series the studio plans to develop including THE WOLFMAN and BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN.

Now though, the Heat Vision web site reports that not all the films under this banner will be similar costly affairs with the budgets said to "range dramatically". The trade adds that micro-budget producer Jason Blum has 'expressed interest' in shepherding a low-budget entry into this monster universe. The report doesn't indicate which potential character or property Blum has his eye on to develop. 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)

RLJE plans to release the film in theaters and On Demand on September 8, 2017.
