1996's "The Craft" modernized the lore of witchcraft and brought it to the masses by telling a story of four high school girls who innocently start dabbling with mystical powers before things get out of control. Their new-found powers turn into a vehicle of payback for those who they feel have wronged them.
Based on the trailer below, I've possibly just summarized the "not a reboot" "The Craft: Legacy." It sure looks like the same premise which begs the question, did we really need it? Time will tell. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think.
They've battled zombies and aliens - now it's time for ghosts. On October 30th, Truth Seekers, a comedy/horror series starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (along with Malcolm McDowell!) premiers on Amazon Prime.
“Truth Seekers is a supernatural comedy series about a team of part-time paranormal investigators who work to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK, sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see. However, as they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers and abandoned hospitals with their array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more terrifying and even deadly, as they begin to uncover a conspiracy that could bring about Armageddon for the entire human race.”
“Fans of the film who want to revisit these twisted stories, as well as new readers discovering them for the first time, are in for a real treat. And, as we embark on new ways to celebrate Halloween with virtual trick or treating and drive through haunted houses, just remember to uphold the old Halloween traditions as well and keep your jack-o’-lanterns burning or you might just find Sam at your front doorstep.” - Robert Napton, Senior Vice President of Legendary Comics
Much like an uncountable number of productions, our favorite killer doll's show production has been postponed to 2021. Don Mancini and producers have stated this should not affect the planned release date which was sometime in 2021 on USA Network and Syfy.
A canonical part of the original franchise, Chucky will see a vintage Good Guy doll turn up at a suburban yard sale, throwing an idyllic American town into chaos as a series of horrifying murders begin to expose its hypocrisies and secrets. Meanwhile, the arrival of enemies—and allies—from Chucky’s past threatens to expose the truth behind the killings, as well as the demon doll’s untold origins as a seemingly ordinary child who somehow became this notorious monster.
John Carpenter's 1988 cult classic "They Live" continues to live on. Though we're just shy of 3 months from the December 8th release date, you can now pre-order one of 4 special editions now on Shout Factory's website. DVD and Blu-Ray editions are currently available. The special editions range in cost from $34.98 - $94.99 with the most expensive including:
The Keith David figure can be purchased by itself for $39.99. Time to dig out your old Rowdy Roddy Piper WWF figure and re-create theylongest back-alley fight ever filmed!
If you've watched "Mandy," the cocaine-fueled, WTF revenge horror movie from 2018, then you're likely among the consensus that it was some of the craziest we've ever seen Cage on film. I literally walked away from this movie saying, "That was FUCKING AWESOME!".
Die-hard collectors will be able to purchase a VHS copy of Mandy complete with black clamshell case and custom artwork starting tomorrow, 9/14/20 at WitterEntertainment.com. The VHS edition will be truly old-school, offering a 4:3 aspect ratio, perfect for that old tube TV that's been sitting in the basement since 2001. So dust it off, grab some mac n' cheese and enjoy the ride!
Remember to eat your Cheddar Goblin!
In the wake of the Funko Pop (and similar collectible series) phenomenon, a new growing trend is characterized Rubber Duckies. I mean...why not? If you think it sounds stupid, I'll refer you back to the POG craze of the 90's. I rest my case.
Numskull has acquired rights to superhero and popular video games to make likenesses of popular characters such as Sonic The Hedgehog, Vault Boy from Fallout, Gandalf from LOTR, The Joker (...the list goes on and on) in rubber duck form.
Enter horror icons. Though the list is a bit limited at the moment, there are some strong staples already produced such as Pennywise (new, not classic), Beetlejuice and adversaries Michael and David from The Lost Boys. The best, in my opinion is Regan from The Exorcist. Not only does she float on her back, unlike the others, but it just looks cool.
