The trailer for the highly anticpipated Godzilla remake directed/written by Gareth Edwards has been released! Check it out below!
April 3, 2015 is the currently locked release date for the third installment of the hit horror franchise Insidious which will be written by Leigh Whannell (writer/star of the first two films). We have still yet to hear if James Wan will return to direct the film, but we will keep our fingers crossed. If Wan doesn’t come to direct, who would you want to direct? Any specific horror masters in mind?
After almost a decade since the first Saw film, which was written and directed by James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring, Dead Silence), the eighth installment of the hit horror franchise is currently in active development.
There has been mixed criticism with the past seven Saw movies. The ratings for each film did not increase or decrease in a specific order, but they did vary. Some of the Saw movies were terrific, while others were pretty bad. I wonder what they can do with this new installment that will shock audiences and get them off guard, having them begging for another one. I am sure of one thing that would make this reboot fantastic… If the dynamic horror duo James Wan and Leigh Whannel returned to write and direct it. Now that would be great.
What are your thoughts on this new installment?
In an exclusive screening for the 2006 horror anthology film, Trick’r Treat, director Michael Dougherty announced that a sequel is definitely a GO! In an interview with MTV News, the writer/director describes the upcoming sequel as “Found-footage torture porn”. What could this mean? Well, we’ll never know because Dougherty then followed it up by telling us he was joking. “We’re the antithesis of that.” he then said.
If you’re unfamiliar with Trick’r Treat, it’s a horror film that featured four different stories: an everyday high school principal has a secret life as a serial killer; a college virgin might have just met the one guy for her; a group of teenagers pull a mean prank; a woman who loathes the night has to contend with her holiday-obsessed husband.
What could director/writer Michael Dougherty have for us in this sequel? More information to come!

Friday the 13th is back in the hands of Paramount, and we have recently discovered that they are finally working on a sequel to the 2009 remake of the horror classic, Friday the 13th.
My question is, what else could they possibly do with Friday the 13th? They’ve done enough with this franchise in the past 40 years. Let’s take a journey through every Friday the 13th movie, shall we?
The second F13 film in the franchise, Friday the 13th: Part 2, which came out in 1981, has pretty much the same story as the first film, but Mrs. Voorhees is dead and Jason Voorhees takes her place. The famous hockey mask hasn’t been put on the famous killer in this movie, but he wears a bag over his head during the film as he kills the camp counselors.
Now, this is where the franchise began to go downhill. In 1984,Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter comes out. After this movie, we think it’s all finally over. Jason dies, he’s buried in the cemetery… how could there be a sequel? Wrong.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning was released a year later in ’85. This movie was completely unnecessary in my opinion. Jason wasn’t even Jason. (SPOILER ALERT) During the entire film, it is an impostor who kills the victims. I don’t think they needed this movie at all; they should’ve gone straight to–
—Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part 6. This was actually a good and enjoyable movie. We are introduced to the most famous grotesque zombie-like Jason Voorhees. At the end of this one, the killer is chained at the bottom of Crystal Lake. Does this kill him? Of course not!
In Friday the 13th: The New Blood, we are introduced to a telekinetic/telepathic girl. Not that this was a bad movie, it was entertaining, but you can tell the creators are running out of ideas. In this movie, Jason is killed by the girl’s father, whom has been dead at the bottom of Crystal Lake for at least 15 years. As always, they find a way for Jason to come back and do more killing.
Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) and Jason Goes to Hell (1993)were just not good at all. Especially Jason Goes to Hell. The story of that movie was perhaps the worst horror movie story line that has ever been written… but on the bright side, Jason dies! Well, he dies in his physical body, but his spirit isn’t dead.
8 years later, Jason X is released. Jason X was very entertaining, but it had a bad story… and it made no sense. Jason Voorhees in space. Really? Jason in space? Not only does Jason X take place in space, but in the future… on a spaceship. What else could Paramount possibly do to Jason in a sequel? He’s been in space!
Finally, in 2003 Freddy vs. Jason was released. To this day, I have not seen this movie all the way through. I’ve only seen big chunks of this movie, and what I saw was not disappointing. I was expecting Damien Shannon and Mark Swift (writers) to ruin the name of the famous killers Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees, but they didn’t, and neither did director Ronny Yu.
In 2009, the Friday the 13th remake is released into theaters. This remake is basically Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th part 2 and 3 put all into one modernized film.
…After all this, what else is there to do with Jason? I’m interested in knowing what you think. Tell me in the comments below.
