Scream moves from MTV to VH1.

Image
So...what was supposed to be the third season of MTV's Scream series will now air on VH1 as a 3-night special event called Scream: Resurrection beginning Monday, July 8.

Honestly...I'm okay with this. They're finally using the ghost mask and they even got Roger Jackson to voice the killer. So win-win.

Not much is given away by the trailer, but the official plot says that star football player Deion, the main character, is haunted by his past, which threatens his future. Cliche, but okay.

Check out the trailer below...


I might also add that I'm sort of proud of being one of the first websites to break the news over at Scream-Thrillogy.com.

My trip to Windsor College & the SCREAM 2 filming locations!

Image
Okay, so Windsor College in Ohio isn't a real place...but Agnes Scott College in Georgia is!  And that's where a large chunk of Scream 2 was filmed.

My friend Kenny runs and operates On Set Cinema, a roaming movie screening experience that takes place at said films' filming locations.  It's a brilliant idea and as soon as the Scream 2 event was announced, I knew I had to be there.  The 16-hour round-trip drive was well worth it.

One of the main areas in the college's quad is the gazebo, where Sidney and Dewey have their first conversation of the film.  In this photo, I'm standing in the gazebo.

The college is a lot smaller than it appears on film, and that's just a prime example of the magic of filmmaking.  The weekend was a surreal experience for sure.

Here's what I saw...

HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U is fresh, fun & a really good time.

Image
I finally saw Happy Death Day 2U last night. I'm a pretty big fan of the first movie so I was very eager to see the sequel.

Unlike people who saw the movie on opening night, I think I may have actually benefitted by waiting a few days. I heard a lot of people were a little disappointed that that most of the horror element was gone for the sequel. So, naturally, I went into 2U with that in mind.

To my surprise, there's still plenty of horror/suspense to be had. And honestly, I enjoyed the sequel just as much as the first movie. This is where I'd insert the shrug emoji.

Once again, Jessica Rothe totally shines and is just as loveable as ever. The rest of the cast stepped up as well.

The movie gets a little confusing at times but that's okay. The film is dealing with a weird, new-ground territory and I think the filmmakers did the best they could. But, hell, I liked it. I really, really liked it.

Short review, I know, but the film is good and if you liked the first movie…

FRIENDS plus SCREAM equals URBAN LEGEND.

Image
I've never really thought about it before, but Urban Legend is totally Friends meets Scream.  Let me explain.  I've been binge-watching Friends on Netflix so the show's pretty fresh in my mind...and I saw that Michael Rosenbaum tweeted about horror movies the other day and it reminded me of Urban Legend.

And then it hit me: Urban Legend is totally Friends meets Scream.

The Scream part is obvious...a modern slasher whodunit.  After the opening kill in Urban Legend, the film moves to a campus coffee house (hello, Central Perk).  And we then meet the cast...

Parker is Chandler.
Natalie is Monica.
Brenda is Rachel.
Paul is Ross.
Damon is Joey.
Sasha is Phoebe.

How in the hell has this never donned on me before? Granted, Natalie and Brenda as Monica and Rachel are kind of interchangeable, but still.  This totally makes sense.

Happy 2019, everyone.

Honest thoughts on the CHILD'S PLAY remake.

Image
I've been thinking about the Child's Play remake recently, and I'm coming around to the idea/thought of it.  And judging by the poster art for the film, this looks to be a modern retelling of a story we know and love.  And I have to get behind that idea.

I know and understand that the original franchise is still very much alive and quite strong at the moment.  And that's awesome.  I'm glad it is.  Do I think the series needs a remake?  No.  A reboot?  Yes.  Even though you could argue that Curse of Chucky was a reboot of the franchise.

So...the nitty gritty.  MGM really only holds the rights to the Child's Play name.  To the best of my knowledge, they do not own the rights to "Chucky" or "Good Guys."  So if you look closely on the poster, the name of the doll is Buddi.  And the "I" seems to be dotted with a WiFi symbol.  This tells us that this doll is most likely a smart doll that's tapped into the internet.  Makes sense.  Th…

LEPRECHAUN RETURNS with two very cool posters.

Image
SyFy's new Leprechaun sequel, Leprechaun Returns, hits VOD December 11.  And honestly, I can't wait.  Yes, the absence of Warwick Davis kind of, sort of, sucks.  But what doesn't suck is that this new movie is a direct sequel to the original film.

I had actually written a Leprechaun sequel a few years back and I had the same idea: pick it up at the O'Grady farm in present day.  And that's what's happening.  I'm excited to see how they handle it and if I was close.

Two new posters have been released for the film and if you look closely, you'll notice that they're hand-drawn renderings.  How cool is that?

The first one features the infamous well from the original film.  And the second one gives us an idea of what's in store.

You gotta give SyFy some credit...they are erasing that awful taste that Leprechaun: Origins gave everyone.


Something that has sort of gone under the radar is that original Leprechaun star Mark Holton (Ozzie) has returned to …
