Writing has begun on the sequel to Will Forte's MacGruber Based on the repetitive Saturday Night Live sketch by the same name, MACGRUBER really had no business being as funny as it was. Even so, the film obviously wasn't everyone's cup of tea as MACGRUBER failed to to recoup its $10 million budget. Since then the film has gathered up a cult following and the prospects of a sequel have been brought up again and again. Will Forte has said that... Read More...

Bad Santa 2 Gets A Very Sweary Trailer As Well As A Not So Sweary One Bad Santa was a novel concept that ran pretty far with the swearing, drinking Santa schtick, and it grew a fanbase into what could arguably be called a ‘cult’ following. The series is making a return this Christmas with Bad Santa 2, and you can get your best look at it here with these two trailers. There is a very sweary, NSFW trailer up first, which seems to really be trying to ram home its crude comedy here. And I mean that. It is pretty vulgar.

Here’s Another Dirty Red Band Trailer for Bad Santa 2 Oh this one is dirty alright, in all the right ways you’d expect from a sequel to Bad Santa. But seriously, maybe don’t bring your kids to Bad Santa 2. Sequels to movies that came out more than a decade ago have not had the best of luck at the box office so far this […] Read Here’s Another Dirty Red Band Trailer for Bad Santa 2 on Filmonic.

The Original ‘Blair Witch’ Team Pitched a Prequel Set in 18th Century New England The first sequel to The Blair Witch Project arrived only 15 months after the release of the original movie. The second sequel took another 16 years to manifest, arriving in theaters just three days ago.

It’s not just that the film blurred the lines of fact and fiction with its one of a kind marketing campaign leading up to the film’s release. Nor is it solely because the film is genuinely frightening.

Blair Witch and the Evolution of the Found-Footage Genre Italian filmmaker Ruggero Deodato’s horror/exploitation movie Cannibal Holocaust is generally regarded as being the first proper found-footage movie, as far as most film historians are concerned.

Interview: ‘Blair Witch’ Director Adam Wingard & Writer Simon Barrett on Reinventing a Horror Legend for 2016 Director Adam Wingard and screenwriter Simon Barrett have become two of the most exciting new voices in horror over the past five years with films like A Horrible Way to Die, You’re Next, and The Guest (as well as memorable segments in both VHS movies and The ABCs of Death). Now, the duo have decided to enter someone else’s playground with Blair Witch, a sequel to the 1999 classic The Blair Witch Project. Blair Witch is a very different film than the original movie, replacing the slow-burn psychological terror of the first film with visceral scares and a relentless pace.

Super Troopers 2 adds Rob Lowe to the cast Many thought it wouldn’t happen. All hope was lost, as people locked themselves in dark rooms, never to be seen again. But the light has entered their lives again. The fire of life has been rekindled. Yes, SUPER TROOPERS 2 is coming, and as this new casting news proves, the boys aren’t returning alone.
