The story begins several years earlier at a Halloween party, when a group of high schoolers are playing a version of “spin
These days, we have a variety of options to watch genre movies beyond our own home media collections, so over the next few weeks, I’ll be posting a series of themed streaming lists that should undoubtedly scratch any sort of cinematic itch you might be having this Halloween.

Here’s a list of the films that will be available to stream starting
As you surely know by now, a new TV show’s currently in the works for the BBC and Netflix from Sherlock creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss. Set to run for only three-episodes, with each one coming in at about 90-minutes, it features Claes Bang in the titular role and though we’ve still yet to see any footage from it, we do now have our first look at the project thanks to the photos in the gallery down below.
While there’s only two shots here, we do see
The story centers on an elusive serial killer, who descends upon a small town annually. He is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer. Epps will be playing the lead role of Detective Denver who has faced Trick once before, having shot and killed him. Or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is still out there, and he's coming back for revenge.
Producer Ellen Wander stated this.
"We are thrilled to get into production with Omar and Patrick and can't wait to have this film be seen by audiences everywhere."
Omar Epps is an actor I
By now, you may have heard of how a new TV series is currently in the works for BBC and Netflix – and it comes to us from Sherlock creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, no less. Set to leave little room for filler due to its three-episode, 90-minute format, the show features Claes Bang in the titular role.
Obviously, the creative minds behind this thing need a supporting cast to orbit Bang, and they’re wasting no time filling it out. According to Deadline, John Heffernan (The Crown) and
Dermot Mulroney will star in horror thriller Trick, which Film Bridge International will launch to worldwide buyers at Afm next week.
Patrick Lussier will direct the film from a screenplay he co-wrote with Todd Farmer about an elusive serial killer named Trick who descends upon a small town each year in a murderous spree.
A detective whom people believe shot and killed the monster remains unconvinced his foe is dead, and believes he is returning to the town seeking revenge. Mulroney will play the detective.
“After much discussion with director Lussier, Dermot was
Hulu's First Ever Huluween Details: Press Release: "Get ready for a month’s worth of scary programming as Hulu kicks-off its biggest “Huluween” celebration yet.

“Inside the walls of Hulu, Huluween has been a tradition for many years,
Children of the Corn: Runaway tells the story of young, pregnant Ruth, who escapes a murderous child cult in a small Midwestern town. She spends the next decade living anonymously in an attempt to spare her son the horrors that she experienced as a child. Ruth and her son
Apparently, there's a decent sized audience that enjoys watching an evil cult full of kids killing adults. This one features an adorable little blonde girl smashing something with a hammer. I remember watching that first film for the first time. I was a kid and snuck out to watch it with some friends. It kinda jacked me up, but I also enjoyed the thrill of watching it. Unfortunately, none of the sequels were as good or as interesting as the first movie. I've watched them though, and I'll end up eventually watching this one as well.
"Children of the Corn: Runaway tells the story of young, pregnant Ruth, who escapes
From director John Gulager (Piranha 3Dd, Feast) comes a horrifying new chapter in the Children of the Corn series when Children of the Corn: Runaway arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital), DVD, Digital, and On Demand March 13 from Lionsgate. Based on the original story “Children of the Corn” by Stephen King, the tenth installment of the legendary horror series follows a young woman who can’t escape her nightmarish past.
Here’s a look at an assortment of 31 films from Hulu that I think would be great movies to stream this October. I tried to give you guys a wide variety, too, hitting various sub-genres, so hopefully there’s a little bit of something for everyone in this list.
As far as high school horror films go, The Faculty has remained one of my very favorites for years now. Essentially, it’s Robert Rodriguez riffing on The X-Files, and who can resist that?
The team behind the successful Sherlock series, which consists of four seasons spread over seven years, has shelved future development to pursue other opportunities. Variety reports that Sherlock creators Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat are now collaborating on another classic of literature; this time it's Bram Stoker's Dracula for the BBC.

It's an intriguing, but curious, choice of subject matter. In recent years several TV and film versions of Dracula have struggled to connect with audiences (films such as Dracula 2000 and Dracula Untold, and Dracula for NBC in 2013 by the folks behind Downton Abbey). Additionally, Universal is also re-booting the character in film for their Dark Universe series of monster films.
It's unclear whether these past efforts failed due to poor execution or a general lack of interest in the character; there's certainly no lack of interest in vampires within recent pop culture. Let's be honest, there have been dozens and dozens of Dracula productions since the original Bela Lugosi film in 1931 -- perhaps the problem is that this character has simply played-out his popularity and/or his story is just too well-known.
Fortunately, in addition to Sherlock, Gatiss and Moffat have spent a lot of time in genre television, working on shows like Game of Thrones and Doctor Who, respectively. Gatiss also reportedly has deep affection for Dracula, particularly the classic 1958 version starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing. If anyone is going to produce a version of Dracula that engages audiences and catches fire, you could do far worse than Gatiss and Moffat.
Both men are quite early in the process. Plot, casting, setting, and timeline details are unknown, but we'll update you as soon as we know more.

The Tracking Board broke the news of this writer coming aboard, with Eric Heisserer (Arrival) and Jon Spaihts (The Mummy, Passengers) previously working on this project together through the writers room.

Eric Heisserer came aboard to write the script alongside The Mummy writer Jon Spaihts back in November, but the project still doesn't have a director yet and there is very little we know about the story. Eric Heisserer recently spoke with Hitfix, while promoting the new thriller Lights Out, which he co-wrote, where he revealed that this version of Van Helsing was inspired by another iconic character.
