Review: The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto

The Haunted World Of El Superbeasto Rating : 1.5 out of 5 Format: Blu-Ray - Picture looks great - Director : Rob Zombie Written By Rob Zombie and Tom Papa This movie tries way too hard. Written with the intent to be edgy and shock the viewer the film goes out of its way to throw in as many cartoon breasts as possible. It relies on the fact that these are CARTOONS swearing, having sex, and slicing the heads of zombies. None of it is shocking unless you view cartoons as a medium only for children. The film is perfect for stay at home housewifes and soccer moms to bitch about. Final Thought: It's kind of hard to enjoy a movie when all you can visualize are the writers thinking of ways to include as many tits/sex jokes as possible.

Halloween 3D production stopped

Here's the skinny on the latest Halloween installment, set to be filmed in 3D. This comes from Deadline Hollywood ... EXCLUSIVE: So here's what happened: the script only came in Friday, the first draft that Dimension Films had seen. And The Weinstein Co was rushing to get the film into production for a November start date because it has to be done by January when director Patrick Lussier starts a film for Avi Lerner. A release for Summer 2010 was planned. Sure, the rumor mill claims TWC is out of money amid all those layoffs, and TWC couldn't agree on a $2.5M budget battle with Lussier, and TWC had key crew ready to fly to Shreveport. But I understand that Bob Weinstein shut down H3D pre-production "because Bob just felt it was rushing too fast." Now Dimension plans to start the film after My Bloody Valentine 3D helmer Lussier is free. (After all, the film editor got his directing start making Dracula 2000 for the Weinsteins.) But I know what you're thinki

Neve Campbell Signs for Scream 4!

According to Variety , Bob Weinstein has said that Neve Campbell has signed on to reprise her role of Sidney Prescott in Scream 4, the first part of a new trilogy. While Courtney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette are signed on to reprise their roles for a second trilogy, it seems "Sidney" may only be returning for the fourth installment. What does this mean for the main protagonist of the original Scream trilogy? Will she die in the film, be shown in a flashback or given some sort of minor supporting role? Is Neve just being conservative and going script to script, film to film, before deciding to sign on? We'll likely have to wait until at least late next year, presumably near when the film would come out, to find out what fate awaits Sidney Prescott.

A little Lost Boys 3 news

This comes from Brad over at B-D... Bloody Disgusting learned this morning that Dario Piana, director of The Deaths of Ian Stone, is getting behind the camera for Warner Premiere's Lost Boys 3: The Thirst, which was scripted by Evan Charnov. Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander are said to return at the Frog brothers, although I could only confirm Feldman's involvement. Here's the exclusive plot crunch: "When veteran vampire hunter Edgar Frog finds himself destitute and almost friendless, he thinks his live has hit bottom - but wealthy vampire-romance novelist Gwen Liebling offers him a small fortune to go on the vampire hunt of a lifetime and rescue her son Peter from the Alpha Vampire D.J.Dusk. With the help of his friends Zoe, Lars and Blake, Edgar heads into a bloody battle to exterminate evil." Shooting is set to begin this November in South Africa.

Connery back for Indy 5?

This comes from IOL... Sean Connery is set to return to the ‘Indiana Jones’ franchise. The 79-year-old actor turned down the chance to reprise his role as the father of the daredevil archaeologist in last movie ‘Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull’, and the script hinted his character Professor Henry Jones had passed away. However, creators on the next movie, the fifth in the hugely successful franchise, are planning to bring Henry back. A source said: "Steven Spielberg has been working on a script with George Lucas and there is an element of the story that could see Sean returning. Anything is possible in these movies and if Sean wants to return he will become central to the new story." Earlier this week, Harrison Ford – who plays the title character – revealed he is ready to reprise the role. He said: "The story for the new 'Indiana Jones' is in the process of taking form. Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and myself are agreed on what the fif

Ali Larter back for Resident Evil 4

This welcoming news comes from Bloody-Disgusting... With Sony Screen Gems gearing up to shoot Resident Evil: Afterlife in Toronto next month, casting is well underway. Thus far, Boris Kodjoe (who stars in the forthcoming Surrogates) and Milla Jovovich are confirmed to star in the 3-D sequel being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (who returns to the franchise as he got behind the camera for the first film). While out promoting Surrogates, Kodjoe revealed to BlackFilm another two names to add to the list. Ali Larter is set to return to the franchise as she took on the role of Claire Redfield in 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction, while Underworld and "Prison Break"'s Wentworth Miller also stars. Afterlife is slated for a 3D release on August 27, 2010.

Halloween 3D has writer/director

This comes from B-D... Bloody Disgusting & Dread Central received confirmed word this evening that Patrick Lussier has officially signed the dotted line to direct HALLOWEEN 3D for Dimension Films. He'll be heading to Haddonfield with Todd Farmer, who will be penning the screenplay. The duo previously worked together on MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3D for Lionsgate, making them perfect candidates to bring Michael Myers to theaters in 3D. Shooting is scheduled for this fall. What do you guys think of the news?

Spider-Man 4 gets a release date

The next installment of the money-making Spider-Man franchise has been given a release date, this comes from good guy Clint over at Moviehole... Sony has announced that Peter Parker will sprog his next messy-web in May of 2011, says Variety. The soon-to-shoot “Spider-Man 4” – which reunites the ‘Golden’ team of Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Raimi – will hit standard theatres and IMAX on May 6, 2011. It’ll be the first Summer tentpole release of the year. Another superhero flick, “The First Avenger : Captain America”, had originally been scheduled to open that day – but Marvel decided recently to push it back to July 22. “Thor”, another comic-book flick, will be out shortly after “Spider-Man 4” – on June 17. The last two “Spider-Man” pics were also released in Imax theaters, and by the time the next one bows, Imax and Sony should benefit as there will be more of the large-format theaters in the marketplace. "Our network has grown significantly, and we continue to roll

Silent Hill 2 tidbits

This comes from Moviehole... Despite earlier reports suggesting he wouldn't be involved (granted, that was 2007 when he said that - - and he's since been in need of a few dollars), The Hollywood Reporter says Roger Avary is indeed penning the sequel to 2006's "Silent Hill". What's that line in "Twins" that Danny De Vito teaches big-brother Schwarzenegger? Oh Yes... "Money talks, Bullshit walks". The original, starring Radha Mitchell and based on the Konami video game of the same name, is one of the ten most successful video-game adaptations of all time. Directed by Christophe Gans, "Silent Hill" followed Rose (Radha Mitchell), a mother who takes her troubled adopted daughter, Sharon, to a town the girl cries out for while sleepwalking. After being knocked unconscious in a car crash outside the town, Rose awakens to find her daughter missing and the town engulfed in an alternate reality of fog and falling ash. While looking for h

Bruce Campbell talks Spider-Man 4

Moviehole interviewed cult movie fave Bruce Campbell...and in the interview he revealed a few details about the hush-hush fourth Spider-Man film... I've interviewed Bruce Campbell a couple of times - and think he's great value, but I tell ya, it's always hard to tell when he's joking and when he's not. He's like a father that finds it hard to communicate with his kid, so makes jokes to cover up for his inability to have a normal conversation with you. But I mean that in a good way. It's fun how Campbell enjoys fuckin' with reporters... Yankin' his, well, Chin.... and giving the driest, most flat-panned answer to the most normal of questions . And because a wide-eyed cheeky smile usually follows whatever response he offers, it's usually clear that he is having a bit of fun with ya. Today, Campbell tells Access Hollywood that not only does "Spider-Man 4" start up in January (that's likely true, Sam Raimi told me recently February -

Pirates 4 gets title, release date

The fourth chapter in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga has officially been given a title...and a release date. The film will be given the subtitle of On Stranger Tides . Here's the story from E!... Johnny Depp stormed Disney's D23 Expo today in Anaheim, Calif., riding a giant pirate ship, wearing full Jack Sparrow garb and bearing big news: The fourth film in his huge swashbuckling series will be called Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. And it'll storm theaters summer 2011. This was a surprise appearance, of course, Depp's favorite kind, and made minutes after Kermit and Miss Piggy popped in to promote the new Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made (to be written by Jason Segel). "I'm looking for a talking Frog," Depp mumbled to the crowd of 5,000 or so fans assembled for the expo. "I like frogs." And then he sailed off. The Pirates movies have grossed more than $1 billion in the United States alone.

Derek Mears addresses new Jason rumors

The fine folks over at HorrorBid updated their site today with an interesting article where Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in the Friday remake) addressed the rumors of Tim Sylvia replacing him... I'm assuming most of you knew about the rumor floating around concerning Derek Mears not reprising his role as Jason Voorhees in the next installment of Friday the 13th (and if you didn't, what rock were you hiding under?). Yeah, yeah we already know it was debunked as a result of a mix up but now Mr. Mears has spoken and if there was ever any doubt this puts the nail in the coffin. Follow up: It's funny how one little sports reporter can mix up two slasher legends and the chaos ensues! How could he mix up Jason with Michael Myers? I mean it's not like they both wear white masks, or enjoy killing teenagers, or neither speak . . . hmmmmm. Anyways, (sorry guys I couldn't help it) one of Horrorbid's fellow myspace friends contacted Mr. Mears and asked him directly about

Yesterday (9-9-09) the teaser trailer for John Johnson's remake of Plan 9 From Outer Space (simply titled Plan 9) hit the web. Watch the trailer below.

Is Point Break 2 dead in the water?

This may come as a surprise to some, but to the majority of fans who have been following the news on Point Break: Indo closely, this is a no-brainer. It appears that the long gestated sequel may officially be dead in the water (pun intended). This comes from Moviehole: I've been following a story throughout most of the day.... and it may just have come to an unexpected (or was it?) conclusion: 11:56 am : OK, wanna know what's going on with "Point Break Indo"? Nothing. It's dead. Two as-good-as-official sources have just confirmed for me that the film has fallen over. It may get back up later, but at this stage it's not happening and the attached cast have been freed up to work on other projects. Had a feeling this might have been the case. 10:50am : One person I did chat to about the film this morning was Lori Petty, who you'll recall played Tyler in the 1991 classic. She knows nothing much about "Point Break Indo", only that she'd like

Jeepers Creepers 3: Cathedral

In a recent interview with Dread Central, Jeepers Creepers 1 and 2 director Victor Salva gave them an update on the long awaited sequel. Heres what he had to say...... "The financing is just coming together, so perhaps we will be in preproduction shortly. We have been saying this for a year now, but that’s really about all I can with any certainty." He also goes on to say that Jonathan Breck will return as the creeper along with Gina Phillips returning as Trish. In regards to the Creeper... "After much fan feedback, to give him his truck back for the new film"

Review: Black Santa's Revenge

Black Santa's Revenge (2007) Unrated Written And Directed By David Walker Star Rating * * Out Of * * * * * Originally a comic published in Baddazz Mofo Magazine, Black Santas Revenge (Inspired by 70's Blazplotation films) stars Joe Grizzly Himself, Ken Foree (Dawn Of The Dead) as down-and-out santa who decides to take revenge on a gang of thugs responsible for stealing all of the toys in town. Sounds Good? To some degree it is. Unfortunately Black Santa's Revenge (like many of the Blaxplotation films of the 70's) is somewhat dull. Clocking in at a poorly paced 20 minutes BSR never reaches it's self proclaimed "MINI EPIC" status but does offer up a bit of fun. Director David Walker keeps the story simple, realizing the main draw of the film is co-producer and genre vet Ken Foree. Wielding a shotgun, and spouting off one liners, this is Ken Foree at his best. He genuienly seems to be having fun due to his constant (unintentional?) smiling while brawling

Rampage is new Mr. T -- in A-Team redux

Wow, it seems like a lot of UFC fighters are making major movie news as of late, but this rumor is actually true. And for this special TV 2 Film edition, I'll leave it with this little tidbit from Moviehole...again... UFC fighter Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson was rumoured to be up for the role of B.A Baracus in Joe Carnahan’s “A-Team” movie a couple of weeks ago – but the reports were speedily dismissed by the sportsman’s peeps. Today however The Vancouver Sun reports that Jackson has indeed won the much-coveted gig (everyone from Ice Cube to Tyrese Gibson was said to be in the running at one time or another), suggesting he was in town as recent as last week prepping for the role made famous by Mr T in the 80s classic. Says the outlet, ‘’The Sun has learned Rampage was in Vancouver on August 19 to discuss the role with producers and arrived in town Friday to prepare for filming.’’ If indeed true (and sounds like it is), Jackson joins Liam Neeson (Hannibal Smith) and Bradley Cooper

Sheen back for Wall Street 2

Charlie Sheen is returning to reprise his role in upcoming sequel to Wall Street , a film about the consequences of insider trading (sounds boring, but the film is very interesting). Here's what Moviehole had to say... Speaking to The New York Times about his upcoming “Wall Street” sequel, director Oliver Stone confirms that Charlie Sheen will be back to play Bud Fox in the flick – if even fleetingly. Sheen will apparently make a cameo appearance in the sequel – set to lens this week in New York – reprising his role from the 1987 hit. In the original, Bud (Sheen, then hot off Stone’s “Platoon”) was a determined young stockbroker at Jackson-Steinem. His hero is the extremely successful but unprincipled corporate marauder Gordon Gekko (Michael Douglas), a callous and legendary Wall Street player whose values could not clash more with those of Bud's father Carl (Martin Sheen). In an effort to win Gekko as a client, Bud visits with the raider on his birthday and pitches him sto

Suspiria begins in 2010

Producer Luca Guadagino tells Variety that the Suspiria remake is still alive and will begin filming in 2010. David Gordon Green is still attatched to direct.

Children Of The Corn gets another remake

We all know that SyFy will be broadcasting it's remake of the popular Stephen King story on September 26th, but..... Variety has broken the news that screenwriter Ehren Krueger (Scream 3, The Ring) has been hired by the Weinsteins to bring us the third adaptation of the tale. Weinsteins told Variety that they are looking to "Bring something new to the story". Hopefully that something new isn't 3D. No date was announced.

Lussier in talks for HALLOWEEN 3D

Despite the recent confirmation from Variety, Bloody-Disgusting reports that My Bloody Valentine director Patrick Lussier is only "IN TALKS" to helm the sequel/rumored reboot slated for a 2010 release.

Resident Evil 5 planned after 4

The fifth film in the Resident Evil series is set to be a semi-reboot. I guess it's a prequel, really. It'll tell the story of how the virus was created. Here's what B-D had to say... While Sony Screen Gems is prepping for Resident Evil 4: Afterlife, the 3D sequel slated to arrive in theaters August 27, 2010, Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively (and confirmed) that the studio is already looking forward to the fifth film. While Milla Jovovich is confirmed for Afterlife, it's got to be getting expensive and (increasingly) difficult to keep her onboard, even though she is married to producer Paul W.S. Anderson. Instead of moving forward with the ongoing story, the studio is planning a quasi-reboot, which is tentatively titled Resident Evil Begins. While it's a long, long, long way off, the idea is to redo the story of a special military unit who fights a powerful, out-of-control supercomputer and hundreds of scientists who have mutated into flesh-eating crea

The TRUTH about Halloween 3D

This bit of information comes from a VERY reliable source via Courtesy of thewholefknshow ... I just spent the entire evening discussing all things Halloween with my "guy in the know" and there are a few things you should know. First off, Harvey and Bob are originally from WNY. As is my friend who holds the high position that he does, they've spent many hours together over the years and that particular fact was something that even I never knew until this evening. Here's the deal. Halloween 3D is a REAL possibility. But, there is some serious issues between all parties involved in this series. Infact, the power struggle is alot deeper than anyone ever thought it was. The way I hear it, Harv and Bobby have absolutely NO love for Halloween what-so-ever. And this is not an exaggeration I'm told. Harv and Bob are about the bottom line, especially now with the financial peril that they are currently in. The "gimmicky" side of H3D is what t

Scream, Halloween rights open for bidding?

Many sites are reporting that The Weinstein Company is in serious trouble. And judging by their recent flops, this could be true. And if it is true, then expect some major franchises to go up on the chopping block soon. But have no fear, this could be a good thing. Say a company like Platinum Dunes buys the rights to Halloween , then we could probably expect the series to return to glory (hopefully). And as for the Scream films, since their is already a second trilogy planned, could this be TWC's last attempt to bounce back? But if not, you better believe another company is more than willing to buy the rights. The most likely front runner I can see could possibly be Sony Screen Gems. What do you think about the future of TWC/Dimension Films?

Tim Sylvia to play Jason Voorhees in F13 2?

This comes from Former UFC heavyweight champion “Maine-iac” Tim Sylvia (24-6) is currently in Boston playing horror film icon Jason Vorhees in the yet-to-be-titled “Friday the 13th” sequel, has confirmed with a source close to the fighter. But, before you get angry about the possibility of Derek Mears be replaced, keep reading, because the article goes on to say... Sylvia is one of the actors standing-in as the hockey mask-mugged serial killer in the movie franchise began in 1980 and spanning 12 volumes. Note the made "standing-in" in bold. Because that's exactly that. He's a STAND-IN. Which he means he most likely will have ZERO screen time and is only standing in Mears' place while they set up a new scene/shot. Also, this rumor may be completely BS anyway since the Friday the 13th sequel has yet to begin production. Let me know your thoughts by commenting.

Beavis and Butthead 2?!

This comes from Cinema Blend. Interesting -- and I honestly can't wait to see what comes of this...could it be a sequel or remake? Mike Judge has made a cult classic comedy, Office Space, and had the animated series King of the Hill running for 13 seasons. But even with his third feature Extract coming out this Friday, Judge is still, in many ways, the guy who created the two animated loser teenagers who defined the 90s. When I talked to him today, the conversation turned to Beavis and Butthead almost by accident, talking about the promo video for Extract that features the iconic characters. He expanded on some of the comments he made at Comic Con about wanting to revisit Beavis and Butthead, saying he's been coming up with ideas for the characters all these years, and is definitely considering making a second movie. Bear in mind, that does not mean there will be a second movie, just that Judge would consider it. Still, if you've ever wondered what Beavis and Butthead wou

30 Days of Night 2 director unveiled

This comes from the one, the only, Bloody-Disgusting... Bloody Disgusting has exclusively learned that Ben Ketai has been tapped to direct 30 Days of Night: Dark Days, a story from both Steve Niles and Ketai. Shooting is already slated to begin this October in Vancouver, Canada. We also learned that Stella Oleson returns as the lead character, but she will be recast (Melissa George toplined the first film). In the sequel, Stella joins a group of vampire hunters in order to get revenge on Lilith - the vamp responsible for the attack on her Alaska town. Ketai wrote the web series "30 Days of Night: Blood Trails" and "30 Days of Night: Dust to Dust."

Small American Pie 7 update

I e-mailed American Pie: Book of Love screenwriter David Steinberg and asked about the status of the latest Pie chapter and this is what he had to say... It's in final sound mix. I'm supposed to go see the most recent cut next week. Not much. But I guess it's better than nothing. Some promotional and/or a teaser trailer should be hitting the net soon. Keep your eyes peeled, because S-B will have the latest! No, this image is NOT in the film, this is an obvious outtake from AP2 .

Cabin Fever 2 director dislikes his sequel

This shocking news comes from /Film and thanks to B-D for pointing it out. So the director of Cabin Fever 2 , Ti West, is dissatisfied with the final cut of his sequel, which was re-cut by Lionsgate for whatever reason. Anyway, this is what /Film is reporting... He explained that the Lionsgate recut of his Cabin Fever 2 is now complete and that he wishes to disown it. According to him, his edit was like a John Waters or Todd Solondz film (yes, really) and featured heart wipes and star wipes (er…) and that the current version is much less esoteric and idiosyncratic. Interesting, nonetheless. Welcome to Hollywood, I guess. The movie looks like a mistake if you ask me. Either get Eli Roth to direct the sequel, or don't do it...period.

Teen Wolf to be an MTV series

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 1985 hit Teen Wolf is not going be remade, but rather turned into a series for MTV. Here's what THR had to say... MTV's reinvention of the 1980s movie "Teen Wolf" is inching closer to reality with a pilot presentation order. The cable network announced the project in January as part of its development slate. After seeing the script, MTV brass picked it up to presentation. The 1985 film starred Michael J. Fox as a teenager who discovers he is a werewolf. The MTV version will be set in high school, draw from the horror genre to explore werewolf mythology and include a romantic plot line. "It has a fresh take and is very different from the original," said Liz Gateley, senior vp MTV series development. "It has more of an 'American Werewolf in London' feel to it. It's a dramatic thriller with two best friends in the center who provide a great comedy element: They are two very relatable characters on
