TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D (2013)

Image
We're keeping today's Sequel-a-Day in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre family, and this one created a new dimension for the series.  A third dimension.  Naturally I'm speaking about 2013's Texas Chainsaw 3D.

Breakdown:
After the first massacre in 1974, the townspeople suspected that the Sawyer family were responsible. A vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer house, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family. Decades later, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from her grandmother. She decides to bring her friends along on the road trip to investigate her inheritance. On arrival, she discovers she has inherited a mansion, but is yet to uncover the terrors that lurk in the basement underneath it.

My thoughts:
TC3D is such a love-letter to the fans.  From the initial teaser poster which featured various masks from previous TCM movies (hello, Next Generation cover mask!) to the op…

LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III (1990)

Image
Welcome back to another edition of Movie Sequel-a-Day!  And this one's a real gas hog.  Ladies and gengtlemen...this is 1990's Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III.

Breakdown:
A couple encounters a perverted gas station attendant who threatens them with a shotgun. They take a deserted path in Texas to seek help, but only meet up with a cannibalistic clan interested in helping themselves to fresh meat.

My thoughts:
I'm a huge fan of TCM2, but it was nice seeing the series trying to return to its roots in this second sequel.  In fact, the film just sort of retcons the events of TCM2.  Oh well.  We get Leatherface hacking away at people with a sweet new chainsaw.

Sasha Lane Joins HELLBOY Reboot

Image
The Hellboy reboot is beginning to pick up serious steam as it adds another name to its growing cast...Sasha Lane!
American Honey's breakout star Sasha Lane is in final negotiations to join the Hellboy reboot.

Lionsgate and Millennium’s project will star David Harbour as the demonic hero from the Mike Mignola comic books. Neil Marshall, the horror director who broke out with The Descent and won raves for his work on Game of Thrones, is on board to helm.

The new story sees the hero squaring off against a medieval sorceress who seeks to destroy humankind. Lane would play Alice Monaghan. In the comic books, Hellboy rescues Alice from the fairies that kidnapped her. She retains some supernatural gifts because of her time with the fairies.

Milla Jovovich and Ian McShane also are attached to star. Source: THR

SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: TEENAGE WASTELAND (1989)

Image
Today's sequel is a supreme guilty pleasure of mine (although I slightly prefer part two).  Of course, I'm referring to 1989's SLEEPAWAY CAMP III: TEENAGE WASTELAND -- filmed just weeks after SC2 wrapped.

Breakdown:
Angela is back, in the form of an angry inner-city camper on the hunt for blood. Camp New Horizons, on the recycled grounds of the former murders, intends to pair high-class teens with underclass counterparts. Angela, however, has a different plan. Will it be door number one, number two, or number three

My thoughts:
I knew SLEEPAWAY CAMP II had a small budget, but SLEEPAWAY CAMP III had an even smaller one -- and it doesn't really matter.  SC3 still manages to be highly entertaining and add to the story that SC2 continued.  One of my favorites, no question...and I'm absolutely thrilled that SC2 & 3 finally got a Blu-ray release.

A New HALLOWEEN Is Coming...With John Carpenter!

Image
Remember when we were are all kind of excited for HALLOWEEN RETURNS?  It was supposed to be the sequel/reboot we wanted --  but things sort of fell apart with that movie and no one really knew why -- until today.

It has been announced that there is, in fact, a new HALLOWEEN going into production...with series creator John Carpenter attached as an executive producer and creative consultant...and he may also be doing to music.

This.  Is.  Epic.
We’re thrilled to announce that Michael has found a new home at last — thanks to the efforts of Blumhouse founder/CEO Jason Blum, HALLOWEEN franchise producer Malek Akkad, Miramax and Trancas International Films, who have just announced a team-up of historic proportions to bring a new HALLOWEEN to the big screen.

But hang on for the best part…

Tonight’s press gathering included a surprise appearance by none other than the father of HALLOWEEN himself, John Carpenter, who took the stage to confirm that he’s officially signed onto the new film as…

Spidey 3.0 Is Officially SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING (Updated)

Image
Okay, so the title for the new Spider-Man movie has been officially confirmed via a multitude of legit sources...drum roll...Spider-Man: Homecoming!

I like it.  I dig it.  Just hope I don't confuse it with Halloween: Resurrection's original title (kidding...).

The title fits, seeing as it actually is a homecoming of sorts, seeing that Marvel [Studios] will finally be involved in a Spidey flick.

What do you think?

UPDATE!
Here's the official logo for the movie!
