Scream 5 Reportedly in the Works

Kirsten Howard Nov 7, 2019

Ghostface might be coming back for one last scare, as Scream 5 is reportedly in the works.

A new Scream movie is in development at Spyglass Media Group, according to a new report. Spyglass is the outfit that teamed up with Lantern Entertainment a while back when Lantern bought The Weinstein Company and Dimension's IP at a favorable rate after sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein threw his company into bankruptcy.

Spyglass recently announced that it planned to reboot Hellraiser with David S. Goyer, and now Bloody Disgusting says that a Scream revival is also in the works. Kevin Williamson, who wrote three of the original four films, is apparently not involved with this fifth outing.

Though Scream's instantly recognizable killer Ghostface did return for an MTV TV series, which put out a reduced third season this past summer, the Scream film franchise retired after Scream 4,

Robert Rodriguez's sci-fi thriller Hypnotic finds home at Solstice Studios

  • JoBlo
Robert Rodriguez is certainly a director who knows his way around science-fiction and action films. With movies like Sin City and The Faculty under his belt, the Texas native has staked a claim in both genres over the last twenty-five years or so. And with the success of this year's severely underrated Alita: Battle Angel (you can read Joblo's reviews here and here), it's clear he's…

‘Come to Daddy’ Review: Dir. Ant Timpson [Frightfest 2019]

Come to Daddy review: Elijah Wood and Ant Timpson open this year’s Arrow Video Frightfest with a bang with this eccentric and violent father and son story.

Signature Entertainment

Elijah Wood has been acting since he about eight years old. His first film credit was as ‘video game boy‘ in Robert ZemeckisBack to the Future Part II. He then went on to star in a plethora of family favourites such as Flipper, before moving into the teen arena with The Faculty. After that, he starred as Frodo Baggins in that small film series The Lord of the Rings. All of these roles conspired to give Wood this almost squeaky clean persona. This made his turn as silent cannibal serial killer Kevin in 2005’s Sin City all the more chilling. He followed this up playing a deranged man with a loose grasp on reality in Maniac, planting himself firmly

Interview with Kimihiko Nakamura: In recent Japanese movies and TV dramas, smoking scenes have been considerably decreased. That gave rise to the idea of killing aliens with cigarette smoke

Kimihiko Nakamura started his career as an actor mostly in V-cinema productions under the alias Salmon Sakeyama. His credits include 52 movies with titles such as “Girl Hell 1999”, “Blood Sisters” and “All Night Long: Initial O”. After winning an award for his script at the Hakodate Film Festival, he switched to directing using his actual name this time.

On the occasion of “Smoking Aliens” screening at Japan Filmfest Hamburg, we speak with him about the crazy story of the film, smoking, and shooting films in Japan.

Can you introduce to our readers how you became a director and screenwriter?

With my experience as staff and as actor in various films and TV shows, I made my own plans and scripts. Because those were approved, I became film director.

Where did you get the idea for creating such a crazy narrative as Smoking Aliens?

Salma Hayek in Talks to Join Angelina Jolie in Marvel’s ‘The Eternals’

I love Salma Hayek. I've always loved Salma Hayek. I liked Salma Hayek in The Faculty. I liked Salma Hayek in Dogma. And Everly. And Beatriz at Dinner. I loved the mere sound of Salma Hayek's voice as the bisexual beef taco Teresa Del Taco in Sausage Party. Hell, I even enjoy Salma Hayek in the Grown Ups movies. And I look forward to catching up with The Hummingbird Project soon. This is to say that Salma Hayek is awesome, and even the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be lucky to have the Oscar-nominated actress. Well, guess what? …

‘The Dead Don’t Die’: Jim Jarmusch’s Zombie Romp Will Make U.S. Premiere at New Orleans Horror Festival

‘The Dead Don’t Die’: Jim Jarmusch’s Zombie Romp Will Make U.S. Premiere at New Orleans Horror Festival
After Jim Jarmusch’s zombie comedy “The Dead Don’t Die” enjoys a snazzy red carpet premiere as the opening night selection of the Cannes Film Festival, its next stop will bring it to diehard genre fans. The movie will make its U.S. premiere as the opening night selection of The Overlook Festival, the New Orleans horror film festival that returns to the French Quarter for the second time on May 30.

The Focus Features release finds Jarmusch bringing his distinctive deadpan approach to supernatural circumstances for the second time, following 2013’s wistful vampire tale “Only Lovers Left Alive.” For “The Dead Don’t Die,” the auteur mainstay appears to be tipping his hat to George Romero’s “Night of the Living Dead,” with the tale of small town characters facing the sudden threat of the undead. The cast includes Adam Driver and Bill Murray as police officers alongside Tilda Swinton

SXSW Film Review: ‘Snatchers’

  • Variety
SXSW Film Review: ‘Snatchers’
Clueless” meets “It’s Alive,” among other things, in “Snatchers.” Stephen Cedars and Benji Kleiman’s first feature is a great argument for teenage chastity, in that its high school heroine’s first sexual experience leads overnight to an alien-monster pregnancy and, possibly, the end of the world. See, impulses have consequences!

Moralists may wish that message were delivered a tad more seriously, but there’s a great deal of fun to be had from this high-energy spinoff of an eponymous online series. In a SXSW Midnighters lineup overladen with variable horror comedies, this is at least one genuinely funny entry. It’s got a decent shot at theatrical exposure in addition to bright streaming prospects, all of which will no doubt be boosted by enthusiastic reception on the genre-fest circuit.

All 18 Robert Rodriguez Movies Ranked, From Worst to Best (Photos)
Robert Rodriguez has come a long way from his micro-budget breakout feature — a landmark of American independent cinema — in terms of scope and technology, but his interest in genre storytelling and satirical sensibilities have prevailed regardless of the resources at his disposal. The Mexican-American director has dabbled in ultra-violent homages to B-movies, family-friendly adventures, and graphic novel adaptations, as well as their respective and numerous sequels. Results vary in success, but his movie-loving imprint is always indelible. Are his films better when working with untested material and less financial certainty? A look at his filmography might reveal the answer:

18. “Four Rooms” (1995)

In an atrocious performance as a neurotic bellhop, Tim Roth binds together the quartet of farcical hotel-set short stories that form this ill-conceived anthology. Rodriguez’s segment, “The Misbehavers,” sees unsupervised minors getting their chaperone in trouble. It’s not utterly insufferable, as it comes across like an R-rated

‘Light as a Feather’ Review: Hulu’s Fast-Moving Teen Horror Series Is Fun and Freaky, but Hardly Frightening

‘Light as a Feather’ Review: Hulu’s Fast-Moving Teen Horror Series Is Fun and Freaky, but Hardly Frightening
Light as a Feather” is Hulu’s teen horror adventure with a mystery as engrossing as it is grotesque, and just creepy enough to scratch that Halloween itch without keeping you up at night. When popular high-school-clique leader Olivia (Peyton List) invites new girl Violet (Haley Ramm) to hang out with them at the cemetery on Halloween, Violet insists they play the party game Light as a Feather, Stiff as a Board. Before attempting to lift or “levitate” each girl, she is told an elaborate story about how she’ll die. When one girl ends up perishing exactly as predicted, the rest are left scrambling to figure out who or what they’re up against before they also end up dead.

Hulu has already been representing the horror genre well with the excellent “Castle Rock” and Blumhouse’s new anthology movie series “Into the Dark.” In dipping its toes into the teen horror well,

Frightfest 2018: 10 Questions with ‘The Ranger’ director Jenn Wexler

  • Nerdly
What is it about the Punk movement you like so much? It informs so much of The Ranger…

I’m incredibly drawn to punk’s spirit of rebellion and its embracing of individuality. Growing up in the suburbs, there was so much pressure to fit in, to be seen as “normal,” and going to punk shows was thrilling for me because it helped me realize it was okay to want other things. I went to college in Philadelphia at the University of the Arts and studied screenwriting, where my classmate, Giaco, wrote a script that would eventually become The Ranger. I fell in love with the concept of a group of punks going up against this figure of authority, someone who deems them less than, because they don’t conform to what he values as worthy. I find personality types like this terrifying– ones that say you have to fit

Cheers for tears! How Dawson's Creek helped teen TV get emotional

From the Oc to Riverdale, the erudite 90s phenomenon changed the face of pop culture – and spawned the ultimate emotional meme

• Read a ‘lost’ page of Dawson’s Creek’s script

No matter how old you are, no matter how untouched by human emotion you pretend to be, it is going to happen to you. You are going to develop feelings for a soapy TV drama aimed at American teens. If your formative television watching years occurred in the 90s, there were innumerable opportunities to develop unexpected infatuations: this was the decade of My So-Called Life, Party of Five, Felicity, Buffy and – rising like a phoenix above all its angsty contemporaries – Dawson’s Creek.

In the late 90s, screenwriter Kevin Williamson was being hailed for his part in reinvigorating the horror genre with his smart, sarcastic, self-aware scripts for the hugely profitable Scream series, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Faculty.

Robert Rodriguez Calls Harvey Weinstein ‘Truly Disgusting’ and Rose McGowan Has Something to Say About That
Add pioneering indie filmmaker Robert Rodriguez to the list of former Harvey Weinstein associates now condemning the fallen media mogul. Rodriguez released a statement to Deadline:

“I find the behavior of Harvey Weinstein truly disgusting, both what he did and how he covered his tracks, and it makes me wonder how many others can’t come forward and tell their full story because of legal and personal intimidation. His repulsive behavior was an abuse of power. Thankfully, he’s now discovering what true power is.”

Rodriguez has a long history with Weinstein, starting with 1995’s “Four Rooms,” which was distributed by Miramax, and then franchises such as “From Dusk Till Dawn,” “The Faculty,” “Spy Kids,” and “Sin City,” which came out through the Weinsteins’ Dimension Films label.

However, TWC also released Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” in 2007. That film starred his then-girlfriend, Rose McGowan, who is among the scores of women who
