I haven’t really done a Horror-centric article in a bit, so I’m getting on it right now to share with you some of the spooky stuff that’s been going around. We have some Undead news, Lycanthropic antics, plastic killers, and much more! So, let’s get right to it!
Let’s start off with a little news:
- For everyone who happened to see Curse of Chucky (and if you haven’t you really should because it was brilliant) and were wondering if the series would continue. By the look at creator Don Mancini’s tweet, we’re going to get a Part 7 soon enough! “To the fans who’ve asked questions about Alice and the end of #CurseofChucky: All will be answered in part 7!”
- The Last of Us was one of the best horror video games ever created, so it’s no doubt that Hollywood wouldn’t mind capitalizing on it. It seems that the websites, TheLasTofusMovie.net and TheLasTofus-Movie.com, have been recently registered under a Sony Pictures address.
- Dracula executive producer, Daniel Knauf, is developing a series based off of The Wolfman for NBC. “The WolfMan” is described as “a supernatural thriller that explores what it means to be a man and to be human. It centers on Lawrence Talbot, who is afflicted by an ancient curse and jacks into the powerful, primordial soul of the alpha-predator.”
- With a Scream series being developed by The Weinstein Company, we hear news that we’ll be seeing Sin City and The Mist also getting small screen adaptations. I’m all about exploring more of Sin City, because it’s a rich world that Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez could further explore; but The Mist is a singular short story. The movie was perfect, and I think they should leave it alone. That is, unless Frank Darabont is the one who brings it to television. Hmmmm…..
Now, we have a few trailers from the Horror Genre:
First, we have a television spot for I, Frankenstein. The Aaron Eckhart film looks like a huge Monster battle, with his character right in the middle. Let’s hope it ends up being as good as it looks.
Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones is stepping away from just haunting one family. This one is going all-out. Looks a lot spookier than the previous installments and this new trailer has me pretty excited.
Finally, The Walking Dead’s mid-season finale was arguably one of the best episodes of the series. I’m extremely interested in seeing what happens to everyone now that they’re split up and having no place to live. Below, is a teaser for the February return.
That’s it for this edition of Horror-ble News! Stay Tuned to DFAT for more great spooks and scares coming up!
