The feature length productions will be released direct-to-service on Amazon Prime Video, and the two companies are committing to attaching diverse and underrepresented filmmakers to these titles. The deal marks Amazon Studios’ first ever global direct-to-service deal for feature length productions.

He has redefined the horror genre for fans who are hungry for high concept scares,” said Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios. “Whether it’s found footage, a socially conscious terror comedy or a pure sinister adrenaline ride, he reinvented and infused the genre with cultural relevancy. We can’t wait to see the nightmares he brings direct to service for our Prime Video global audience.”

Luck runs out for a group of rowdy teens in the Leprechaun Returns trailer

  • JoBlo
It looks like today is your lucky day, my friends. After a host of sequels, and a botched reboot in Leprechaun Origins, the gold hoarding hobgoblin is back for another madcap killing spree with the upcoming Leprechaun Returns. Much like David Gordon Green's Halloween, Returns is meant to serve as a proper sequel to director Mark Jones' 1993 comedic horror hit Leprechaun. Sadly,…

The Conners Season 1 Episode 4 Review: The Separation of Church and Dan

This was a great way to show the different ways people grieve. 

If you were confused by the timeline of The Conners Season 1 Episode 4, you are not alone because it was a jumbled mess. 

This was clearly supposed to be the second episode of the season but was instead pushed back to make room for Blue in The Conners Season 1 Episode 2 and the Halloween episode in The Conners Season 1 Episode 3. 

I'm disappointed they didn't go ahead and keep this as the second episode of the season considering it was the perfect continuation of The Conners Season 1 Episode 1.

The Grinch Celebrates Christmas Early with $66M Box Office Debut

The Grinch Celebrates Christmas Early with $66M Box Office Debut
Illumination's The Grinch is the winner at this weekend's box office. The new spin on Dr. Seuss' iconic story has been getting rave reviews from critics, which certainly helped the movie earn $66 million domestically. Overseas, the movie brought in an additional $12.7 million, bringing the grand total to $78.7 million. The Grinch features Benedict Cumberbatch as the voice of the titular character, and the animated family movie is expected to earn more as the holidays get closer.

The Queen biopic Bohemian Rhapsody has come under fire for historical inaccuracies, but it was still able to bring in an impressive $30.8 million, which easily earned the second spot at this weekend's box office. The biopic only fell a little over 30 percent from last week's number one debut. As for the third spot this weekend, that went to Bad Robot's Overlord. The J.J. Abrams-produced horror movie generated $10.1 million, which has been seen as a disappointment.

Fangoria Burns Vogue in Hilarious Twitter Diss Over 2018 Horror Movies

Fangoria had the perfect response to Vogue's negative article on horror movies in 2018. Horror has only gained in popularity over the last few years, thanks to some pretty awesome and unique projects that have breathed new life into the genre. However, according to Vogue magazine, 2018 has not been as great as many have claimed it to be. David Gordon Green's Halloween has been praised by critics, but horror fanatics haven't really agreed with all of the hype.

The Vogue article makes some good points about the horror genre in 2018, which have been echoed by fans over the course of the last year. But, iconic horror magazine Fangoria isn't having any of it. Vogue's title states that "2018 has not been a good year for horror," which promoted Fangoria to clap back with, "2018 has not been a good year for fashion." While humorous, it also proves a point. Much like fashion,

Netflix's Cam Trailer: A Camgirl Clone Gets Bloody in Blumhouse's Latest

A new trailer for Cam has dropped online. The movie is one of the latest horror offerings making its way to Netflix in the very near future. While the streaming service has a spotty track record in the genre department, this comes from Blumhouse Productions, the studio behind Get Out, The Purge, the new Halloween and much more, which should serve as encouragement. Plus, it's got an intriguing premise centered on a cam girl who finds herself (kind of literally) in a very bad and bloody situation.

The trailer starts out with various shots of cam girls doing their thing and, despite what one may feel about that as a means of making money, things appear to be pretty normal, taking context into account. Then some vaguely violent imagery starts cropping up and things take a turn for the weird. Somehow, someone else, who appears to be a clone of our protagonist,

A Beginner’s Guide To John Carpenter

Tom Jolliffe continues his series of beginner’s guides to legendary directors with a look at the work of John Carpenter

What with the recent Halloween reboot in the cinemas, a 40 year anniversary for his original classic, and a series of gorgeous new 4K transfer releases for some of his other cult classics, now would seem a good time to focus on the work of John Carpenter. Considered a genre legend, he’s perhaps not fully acknowledged for just how skilled and visionary a filmmaker he was in his heydey.

I grant you that there will not be too many who are completely unfamiliar with his work. Perhaps more so, this piece will be aimed at the younger readers, born after Carpenter’s career began free-falling in the early 90’s. For any look over Carpenter’s work, you’d say that Halloween is the point of entry. It’s the

No, we’re not talking about a fan film or a comic book crossover—this actually happened! Even the most studied fans of the Nightmare on Elm Street and Halloween movies are probably unaware of Robert Englund’s connection to both franchises. Everybody knows that Englund is synonymous with the Springwood Slasher aka Freddy Krueger, but the actor […]

Comeback Kid: Movie Theaters Rebound With a Vengeance

  • Variety
Will movie theaters finally get some respect?

That’s the question exhibitors are pondering as 2018 races toward a record year at the domestic box office — a result that few saw coming. Yet it remains to be seen if cinemas, frequently written off as lumbering anachronisms, will be able to convince investors and analysts that their success represents a trend.

“Moviegoing doesn’t get its due because it’s not the sexy new technology, but the numbers speak for themselves,” said Kyle Davies, president of domestic distribution for Paramount.

Fall hits such as “Venom,” “A Star Is Born” and “Halloween” are powering the domestic movie business to an unexpectedly strong third quarter and positioning the industry to have a very merry holiday season. Theatrical revenues have improved by 10% year over year, and attendance is up 7.7%, a sign that the boom isn’t just attributable to higher ticket prices. More people are

Halloween Pushes Blumhouse Productions Past The $4 Billion Box Office Mark

It’s been a great month for the new Halloween movie, which means good news for the studio behind it, with David Gordon Green’s latest release helping to push Blumhouse Productions’ total global gross in these last nine years past the $4 billion mark. And for a studio that specializes in relatively low-budget, financially low-stakes works, this milestone is a pretty clear sign that their model is still working.

Blumhouse set the trend for its horror-heavy output with its first wide release, 2009’s Paranormal Activity, which managed to rake in $200 million worldwide on a budget of just $15,000. Since then, the found-footage flick has grown to be one of several highly profitable franchise’s that the studio helped create, with the Insidious and Sinister movies following in its wake.

Things have only gotten better for the studio in recent years, too. 2017, for instance, gave Blumhouse its two highest-grossing movies to date

Will ‘The Grinch’ See Box Office Green in Crowded Month of Family-Friendly Movies?

  • The Wrap
Will ‘The Grinch’ See Box Office Green in Crowded Month of Family-Friendly Movies?
While “Nutcracker and the Four Realms” failed to leave much of a mark on the box office, this weekend should see the start of a dominant period for family films, starting with Illumination/Universal’s “The Grinch.” The Dr. Seuss adaptation should post a solid opening, but will it be a major factor as more films fight for families in the coming weeks?

Universal is projecting an opening weekend of $50 million for “The Grinch” from 4,140 screens, with independent trackers projecting estimates as high as $62 million. By comparison, Illumination’s previous Dr. Seuss adaptation, “The Lorax,” opened to $70.2 million in March 2012 and grossed $214 million domestically. Both “Lorax” and “The Grinch” have reported $75 million budgets, consistent with other Illumination films.

October Delivered a Record $820 Million at the Domestic Box Office

October Delivered a Record $820 Million at the Domestic Box Office
Another month and another record falls as October 2018 domestic calendar grosses topped $800 million for the first time ever, outperforming last October by more than +47%. Leading the charge was Sony's Venom, but it was a collective effort among several films including fellow October releases A Star is Born and Halloween, all of which topped $100 million at the domestic box office compared to last year, which didn't see a single film generate over $83 million over the course of the month. In fact, this is the first time ever more than one film brought in over $100 million in the month of October as studios continue to find ways to make use of a year-round release calendar. For the second time this year, Universal topped all studios with October grosses totaling just shy of $250 million from eight films in release. Leading the way was the studio's release of Halloween, which delivered the second
