The adaptation of Stephen King's short story "Jerusalem's Lot" (published in the book "Night Shift") will be titled "Chapelwaite."
Per Deadline - Set in the 1850s, the series follows Captain Charles Boone (Brody), who relocates his family of three children to his ancestral home in the small, seemingly sleepy town of Preacher’s Corners, Maine after his wife dies at sea. However, Charles will soon have to confront the secrets of his family’s sordid history, and fight to end the darkness that has plagued the Boones for generations.
It has also been revealed that Emily Hampshire (Schitt's Creek) has been cast as a writer who will, in an unspecified way, become entwined with the main character, Charles Boone, played by Adrian Brody. No other casting has been revealed at this time.
With the success of the "It" remake, good impressions of "The Outsider" on HBO and even the less-advertised, appreciation for "Doctor Sleep," all eyes will be trained on the development of this series.
The Season 2 premier of What We Do In The Shadows is approaching quickly! Set for an air date of April 15th, 2020, FX's absolutely hysterical vampire comedy returns with Haley Joel Osment -the "I see dead people" kid from The Sixth Sense. It's reported he will only appear in one episode as Nadja and Laszlo's new familiar, who is a welcome addition to everyone in the house with the exception of poor Guillermo who becomes very jealous.
Mark Hamill has also been confirmed for an appearance at some point in the 10-episode season.
Season one, episode seven had an amazing mass cameo list. Check it out....plot spoiler warning if you have yet to watch it.
That's right - Tilda Swinton, Paul Rubens, Danny Trejo, Evan Rachel Wood and Wesley Snipes (kind of) all came on the show as their respective former vampire roles. Possibly even better, Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement and Jonny Brugh returned as their roles from the movie that spawned this fantastic show.
If you haven't yet watched the show, it's available on Hulu now as part of their FX content. You'll finally understand the concept of a Vulva Garden!
Shudder's Creepshow is awesome. It's one of the primary reasons I subscribe to Shudder. When it was reported the Tales from the Crypt reboot wasn't happening, Creepshow was a welcome replacement. Since it's on a streaming service, no punches are pulled on this anthology horror show, living up to expectations set by the classic movie and follow up graphic novel. The effects and production quality are top notch and there are a number of familiar faces featured in various episodes. Ok, so they're not A-listers but there are some classic horror icons involved and some of the episodes are adaptations from stories by Stephen King and Joe Hill.
But what's that? You don't subscribe to Shudder? Well good news - while it seems as if no one watches The Walking Dead anymore, we can all admit we used to when it was good so odds are you still have access to AMC. The network plans to air the first season of Creepshow prior to the premier of season two on Shudder. It shouldn't be all that surprising. AMC owns Shudder so no doubt they're hoping you'll get hooked and fork out more money for Shudder to keep on watching the new episodes. If you're really patient (or cheap...or tight on cash), maybe you'll see season 2 on AMC at some point. No date has been announced for Creepshow season one on AMC or season two on Shudder.
Rumors of a third Gremlins movie have been circulating for years. Apparently finding a suitable plot to follow Gremlins 2 was somewhat of a challenge, tied up by debates on how interested the general public would be. Fortunately for Gizmo fans, a plan has come to fruition.
"Secrets of the Mogwai" will be a prequel going back a full century to China and will tell the story of how Sam Wing, the curiosities shop owner first shown in Gremlins, came to meet Gizmo.
Before we all begin debating whether CGI will be utilized over practical effects, go in knowing that this will be a 10-episode animated series. As original Gremlin's director, Joe Dante, stated, "...if you tried to shoot it as a theatrical film, it would be outrageously expensive. But in animation, you kind of get away with almost anything you can think of."
It sounds like the show will have a vibe closer to the original movie than the campy slapstick approach that the sequel offered.
"Gremlins: Secrets of the Mogwai" is being developed for HBO Max, which is to be a stand alone streaming app for HBO content. The service launches this May, but Secrets of the Mogwai will not likely air until 2021.
Full interview with Joe Dante available on Daily Dead.
Just days ago we were questioning whether Hopper was truly gone as David Harbour had stated he hadn't heard from the Stranger Things creative team. Well played David...well played!
Today, this Stranger Things 4 trailer reveals Hopper is just too good of a character to kill off.
So a movie doesn't have to be in our favorite genre to contain some truly WTF scenes. Check out this list, which features not only one, but TWO entries from Return To Oz, featuring Fairuza Balk (The Craft) in one of her earliest performances as Dorothy.
I remember first discovering this movie on TV in the 80s when it was played as a Saturday afternoon feature. Even then I knew this was one demented movie. While its intention was no doubt to expand the fantastical world of Oz as done so in the numerous L. Frank Baum books, the creative team seemed to really go all in on this one after a bad trip.
The most haunting scene for me was with the many heads of the witch. Like an action figure, the still-animate heads could be interchanged on her body to suit her mood. This is just the tip of the iceberg with this movie....the whole thing is way out there. I mean, Dorothy's in an asylum for starters because you know, lions and tigers and bears...batshit crazy, right?
Other entries include Willy Wonka (the good one), some Hitchcock, Lost Highway (no other David Lynch entries, which certainly qualify more so if you ask me - um, hello? Mullholland Drive - behind the diner?).

Comicbook.com has been posting a few articles about Stranger Things 4. First, it's looking more like season 4 will have 9 episodes, not 8. No complaints here.
The bigger question is - will David Harbour's Hopper be returning after seemingly not survived season 3? After completing work on Marvel's Black Widow, he says he has no work lined up yet regarding Stranger Things. He hasn't heard from the show's creators, the Duffer brothers, so now he's not so sure that he is "The American" referenced in the final season 3 episode. To be fair, its unlikely we would see season 4 any time in 2020, so it may be too early to say either way.
Maybe Hopper being "The American" would be too convenient or obvious. But - it's hard to imagine that Hopper really is off the show, so perhaps he'll appear later in the season in some unexpected way?
Bloody Disgusting reports that the comic adaptation is set to premier on Netflix on February 7th!
Locke & Key revolves around three siblings who, after the gruesome murder of their father, move to their ancestral home in Massachusetts only to find the house has magical keys that give them a vast array of powers and abilities.
New reports are circulating that the third season of Stranger Things has been postponed to summer 2019. Reasons cited include more special effects which take longer to produce as well as on-going "fine-tuning" of the season.
“They [the Duffer Brothers and Shawn Levy] understand the stakes are high. They want to deliver something bigger and better than last year,” said Holland. “I think it’s going to be a fantastic season. It will be worth the wait.”
