Updates, Updates, Updates.
“Dread Central reports that a new documentary on the FRIDAY THE 13TH films called HIS NAME WAS JASON is currently being put together by Starz and Anchor Bay Entertainment. Daniel Farrands, who worked on the FRIDAY coffee-table-book retrospective CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES and created two AMITYVILLE HORROR docus for the History Channel that also wound up on the DVD of the 1979 film, is directing, and the team behind HALLOWEEN: 25 YEARS OF TERROR is producing. Interviewees from both within and outside the FRIDAY productions are currently being rounded up to share their thoughts (we hear Adrienne King is about to take part, as well as Fango chief Tony Timpone), and Starz will air the show next February (to tie in with the release of the big-screen FRIDAY remake, natch). Presumably, Anchor Bay will have it out on DVD around the time the new FRIDAY flick hits disc. —Michael Gingold”
Next up we have the poster for the new After Dark Horrorfest. Gotta say, this one’s the best so far. Check it out!
And now for the news of the strange. The ‘ol french boys behind INSIDE have taken on duties to direct a, get this now, a FUCKING SEQUEL to Rob Zombie’s Shitstorm HALLOWEEN. You have to be shitting me. The folk over at Rue Morgue got the following scoop…you know, if you want to call it that:
“It’s a proposition we couldn’t refuse.” Maury explains they’re reverent of Zombie’s re-imagining of Michael Myers and they’re out to put their stamp on the character not copy what came before them. “Therefore, our vision will be done with upmost respect, with a continuity of [Zombie’s] work but also a real evolution of the world he set in place.”
Great. More shit.
Alrighty, well, till next time boils and ghouls, I’m off. Medical problems are keeping me from updating as much as I’d like to. Sorry kiddos!
