8/28 Trailer And Poster For ‘Girl In The Basement’:



Press Release: This short horror film, written by lead actress Kt Baldassaro, explores the extent of our own inner monsters. Set around one character and a single location, it is the story of a young surgery intern, Susan Larch, a woman so jaded by her unbridled success in the world that she naively overestimates her own importance in it.

A haunting and emotional struggle between a desire to be saved and the knowledge that only you can save yourself, Girl in the Basement asks, “What would you really do to survive?” It juxtaposes poignant vignettes with disturbing acts of violence, showing audiences a psychological drama so disturbing and memorable that they will forget that they have seen no zombies, no vampires, no inbred backwoods cannibals, no desperate flights in terror from an unknown killer. The monster is you.

Synopsis: A young woman is kidnapped by a serial killer. Before he can finish her, he accidentally dies, leaving her trapped in his basement.

Girl in the Basement is the collaborative effort of acclaimed Western Massachusetts filmmaker Jared Skolnick, and independent actress and screenwriter Kt Baldassaro, paired with the special effects prowess of Alex Squiers, and the haunting electro-pop music of Corson Overlord: Jesse Sterling Harrison — all under the hilarious and skilled guidance of producer Robert Savage.

8/26 Update For 'Trick 'r Treat 2' Kind Of:




You guys remember way back in 2013 it was kind of sorta announced that a sequel to Michael Dougherty's cult classic 'Trick 'r Treat', might be forthcoming? And of course 3 years later absolutely nothing came from the announcement.. In a recent interview with Slashfilm Dougherty had a little something to say about the status of the long delayed project:

"I’m going to speak carefully about that [Laughs], because the moment I utter a word about the sequel, everybody starts salivating. It is very much my intention to make the sequel. Legendary is very committed to making the movie. Creatively, it’s in process. When it actually happens, I don’t know. But, hopefully, stuff like this — the digital decorations, the comic books, the merchandise, and what have you — will tide people over and I can finally get around to making it. Nothing would make me happier than returning to that universe. Like, I miss Sam. When we were shooting these vignettes, I was getting a little bit emotional because I would love nothing more than to hang out with Sam again for a year or two, bringing him back to the big screen.

I think it’d be great to make it a trilogy, at least. So fingers crossed. For me, I think every film should explore a different aspect of Halloween. I felt like the first film was the very traditional, suburban Halloween that we all have some memory of. But as I’ve grown up over the years, I’ve lived everywhere from Columbus, Ohio to New York to L.A., and I find that the holiday is very different depending on where you live. Or even time periods. I don’t see why we should be limited to just present day stories. Halloween is an amazing holiday because it evolves depending on where you live and the time period."

So it appears we are still a long ways - away from actually getting a sequel..

8/25 Trouble For "Friday The 13th" Franchise:




Uh oh, just when it looked like the reboot of 'Friday The 13th' was finally getting on track - the upcoming project has hit another snag.. Victor Miller, writer of the original 1980 film wants to reclaim ownershiphas - so he has filed for a termination of his grant of property rights effective July 2018..

The plaintiffs Horror Inc. and the Manny Company both claim that the idea of the script was Sean S. Cunningham original director of the 1980 film and that Victor Miller wrote the script to Cunningham's intent..

"Miller had never written a horror screenplay prior to his being hired by Cunningham and was guided in the process, and directly supervised, by Cunningham. Accordingly, Miller entered into an employment agreement with the Manny Company pursuant to which Miller wrote a screenplay for the Film as a work for hire (the 'Screenplay')." said complaint..

The complaint currently being processed by a federal court in Connecticut..

Just a couple weeks ago it was announced that Breck Eisner (Sahara, The Crazies, The Last Witch Hunter) was close to signing on to direct the the long delayed reboot..
