Halloween is getting some reshoots. Director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Stronger) is said to be heading back to Haddonfield for some additional filming on the upcoming reboot/sequel of the beloved horror franchise. According to a new report, these reshoots will primarily be used to address the movie's ending, but the full scale and depth of these reshoots haven't been revealed. Though, it's being described as a "tweak," which doesn't sound too severe. These reshoots come after a recent test screening was held for the new Halloween movie. Blumhouse then decided that it was best to revisit the ending, based on the reactions to the screening. Test screenings are held in order for studios to gauge audience reaction and to make changes that may be needed before the movie makes its way to theaters. Often times, we hear of rough test screenings and, by the time the movie actually arrives in theaters, it's actually quite good. This to say, the Halloween reshoots aren't necessarily … [Read more...] about New Halloween Movie Is Reshooting the Ending?

As a lifelong fan of slasher movies, I know the basic formula as well as I know my own name. If the film is a whodunit type, it's not uncommon for me to spot the killer within moments of their introduction, but I never hold this against the screenwriters - it's a sub-genre built on tradition and cliche, for better or worse, and when those things are ingrained it just goes with the territory. But it's very rare that that sort of thing would hamper my enjoyment of a slasher flick; I love them too much and treat them like comfort food, and am sometimes almost charmed by how they follow the patterns of so many others. It's the details that make or break these films - the mask, this or that kill, a particularly novel location (Terror Train may not be the best slasher movie ever made, but I give them full props for doing their thing on a train that almost never stops), and as long as they're bringing something to the table in those departments, I can easily forgive the familiarity of its … [Read more...] about Collins’ Crypt: Movies I Love: BEHIND THE MASK
The new Halloween movie has lost it's greatest asset. Yes, Jamie Lee Curtis has officially wrapped production on the horror sequel and is leaving Charleston. Upon exiting the set, she shared a new Lorie Strode portrait, and hints that this may not be the last we see of the iconic horror hero. Perhaps it's a spoiler. Lorie Strode has always been a survivor. Except when Curtis' character was unceremoniously killed off in Halloween: Resurrection in 2002. That movie is being scrubbed from canon. Now, she is coming back to battle the shape once again. Jamie Lee shared a few more photos from the set, including Micheal Myers chair, which even has The Shape's name on it. We also get to see her as she says her final good-byes, and the album cover she shot up at a firing range. She says this upon exiting. In the photos with her are her on-screen daughters played by Judy Greer and Andi Matichak. Jamie Lee Curtis goes onto say this. And about that album cover she filled full of holes. … [Read more...] about Jamie Lee Curtis Wraps Halloween, Shares Final Lorie Strode Portrait
Almost as long as there has been cinema there have been horror movies. While the genre is often branded with the stigma of being low-brow, cheap, and only for hardcore fans of jump scares and gore, it is also responsible for some of the greatest films of all-time, and certainly many of our favorites fall somewhere along the horror spectrum. Just as there are trashy, forgettable, throwaway horror films every year, there are also those that that play upon our greatest fears to create tension, an ominous atmosphere, and to terrify us to our very core. The history genre is full of monsters, both human and otherwise, horrific events, and chilling scenarios that thrill us, scare us, keep us on the proverbial edge of our seats, and stick around to haunt our nightmares long after we leave the theater. The list that follows is Cinema Blend’s definitive, once-and-for-all comment on the greatest horror movies ever made, though we can’t help but wish there was room for 50 or 100 … [Read more...] about The 30 Best Horror Movies Of All Time
