Forty years after it scared the pants off America — and territories beyond — Tobe Hooper’s ultimate scare machine The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is returning to the big screen this summer in freshly restored form. Hooper himself worked on the restoration and recently told Entertainment Weekly “the film works as well, if not better, than it originally did.” READ FULL STORY

David Koechner is best known for playing the Ron Burgundy-obsessed Champ Kind in the Anchorman movies. But the comic actor is becoming something of a horror genre regular, thanks to his appearances in Piranha 3DD, the not-exactly-a-horror-movie-but-still-plenty-horrific Cheap Thrills, the forthcoming Scouts vs. Zombies, and Crawlspace, which is now available to watch exclusively on Hulu Plus.
What do Cecil B. De Mille, Alfred Hitchcock, Michael Mann, and Michael Haneke have in common? They all remade movies they had themselves previously directed. Filmmakers Lucky McKee (May, The Woman) and Chris Sivertson (I Know Who Killed Me) can now claim membership of this small but illustrious group thanks to their new collaboration All Cheerleaders Die, a remake of the pair’s 2001 horror movie.
Released to cinemas tomorrow (and also available on VOD) the revamped All Cheerleaders Die stars Caitlin Stasey, Brooke Butler, Amanda Grace Cooper, and Reanin Johannink as a quartet of cheerleaders who die in a car crash but are brought back to life by a high school acquaintance (Sianoa Smit-McPhee) and face off against the jocks responsible for their death.
Below, McKee and Sivertson talk about returning to the scene of their previous cinematic crime. READ FULL STORY
The A Nightmare on Elm Street star appears in a new, PSA-lampooning ad for the original movie output of horror network Chiller. As Englund explains, “Right now, hundreds of deranged, psychopathic killers are struggling through life with no place to terrify people.” He then introduces us to to masked maniac named Gregory, who “had dreams of slashing unsuspecting teenagers and making clothing out of human skin. Instead, he lives a life of amateur gardening and eating old human teeth.”
Englund concludes by explaining how you can make everything better — or worse, depending on your point of view — by watching Chiller. You can check out the full video below.
In 2001, writer-directors Lucky McKee and Chris Sivertson killed off a group of cheerleaders in All Cheerleaders Die. Now, they’ve done it again in a remake of their own film, which hits theaters Friday and is also available on VOD. So why do the pair hate cheerleaders so much? READ FULL STORY
It might actually be easier to retrieve a skyscraper from the villainous hands of Alan Rickman than to have avoided seeing an action film produced by Joel Silver, whose blockbuster credits merely begin with The Matrix, Lethal Weapon, and — yes — Die Hard. Silver’s most recent hit was the Jaume Collet-Serra-directed Non-Stop, which stars Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, and, of course, Liam Neeson in the lead role of an air marshal desperate to figure out who is orchestrating the deaths of people on a transatlantic flight. To mark this week’s release of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, Silver talked to Entertainment Weekly about the movie, the likelihood of a non-plane-set sequel, and why his 12-year-old son probably deserves an increase in his allowance.
Fed up with Hollywood’s fondness for CGI? Nostalgic for the days of practical effects-heavy horror movies like John Carpenter’s The Thing and the early Alien movies? Then you’re going to want to check out the trailer for the new, Lance Henriksen-starring creature feature Harbinger Down.
James Franco has found the man to play actor Greg Sestero in his forthcoming adaptation of Sestero‘s 2013 book The Disaster Artist, which details the author’s involvement in the cult film The Room. Not that Franco had to look very far: According to 3 News, Franco’s brother Dave attended a Los Angeles screening of The Room over the weekend and, during a Q&A with the film’s mercurial writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau, asked him, “How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?” Wiseau responded by declaring, “That’s what I say: It’s a good choice.” James Franco seemed to confirm the casting news when he tweeted a photograph of Wiseau with his brother, which you can see above.
We’re in for some tough fluff.
