Fans of Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA weren't exactly pleased to learn that a remake of the psychedelic horror film was being considered, but with production on the Luca Guadagnino directed remake wrapping up earlier this year, it's just something we're going to have to accept. However, Luca Guadagnino (CALL ME BY YOUR NAME) told The Guardian that he's considering his... Read More...

We Almost Had Cheech and Chong vs Jason in a ‘Friday the 13th’ Sequel Forget about Freddy vs. Jason – how about Cheech and Chong vs. Jason instead? In a new interview, Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives director Tom McLoughlin revealed that he pitched a Friday the 13th sequel that would have seen the stoner comedy duo coming up against everyone’s favorite hockey mask wearing murderer.

The upcoming remake of horror classic Suspiria will be something totally different. The original Suspiria was directed by Italian horror maestro Dario Argento and tells the story of an American student arriving at a German dance academy, and slowly realizing it’s run by a witch. The story takes second place to the film’s rich Technicolor visuals, Goblin’s memorable score and the ultra-gory murder setpieces. The film is rightly considered Argento’s finest moment, and fans of Suspiria are doubtful a new version could even approach the haunting atmosphere of the original.

Hollywood Directors Pay Respect To Tobe Hooper Several Hollywood directors and actors are paying respects to Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist helmer who passed away on Saturday at age 74.

Romero in July at age 77. In addition to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Poltergeist, Hooper directed such notable horror films as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Life Force, Night Terrors and Mortuary.

A horror icon is unleashed in the latest trailer for Leatherface THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is certainly near the top of the list of all-time horror greats, but as a franchise, it hasn't been quite so fortunate. Perhaps too much time elapsed between the release of the first installment and its sequel, but the franchise has never been able to successfully dive back into the well which made THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE so iconic. That's not to say that it... Read More...

Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prequel Leatherface Sets Release Date Leatherface has finally gotten itself an official release date. Cinema history is full of horror franchises that began on top of the pop culture world, only to end up descending into utter ridiculousness as their installments continued. For instance, Friday the 13th‘s Jason Voorhees and Hellraiser‘s Pinhead both went into space, while Halloween‘s Michael Myers eventually abandoned stalking his relatives for the thrills of offing contestants on a reality TV show.
