Lucas Mangum’s Horror Corner is a weekly roundup of recent horror-related posts from around the web; a handy guide to the notable horror happenings of the past week. Enjoy…
Though technically more a joke than news, the idea of Warwick Davis pitching a crossover of Leprechaun and Pirates of the Caribbean makes me chuckle. Hopefully you all agree. (Bloody Disgusting)
On Tuesday, Bloody Disgusting sat down with Eduardo Sanchez to discuss his new film Lovely Molly and the long-shot possibility of Blair Witch 3.
It’s nice to see that WER will not be abandoning practical effects for the sake of digital. While The Devil Inside received a lot of negative press, I felt like it had a lot of potential. Perhaps the filmmakers will score higher with werewolves than they did with demonic possession. (Bloody Disgusting)
On Wednesday, the horror world was treated to the first image of Terrance Zdunich as Lucifer in The Devil’s Carnival. (Bloody Disgusting)
Variety reports that Abigail Breslin of Zombieland and Little Miss Sunshine fame is set to star in The Hive. (Bloody Disgusting)
The Legend of the Hillbilly Butcher… yep, these types of films never get old. (Dread Central)
The trailer for Resolution was released via the film’s Facebook page. From the trailer and synopsis, it seems to boast a character-driven story with some scares. I’m officially stoked for this one.
THR reported that the Damian Shannon and Mark Swift, the writers of the Friday the 13th remake (which, shoot me, I actually liked) are in the process of pitching a new project. Details are being kept tightly under wraps, but you can count on me keeping an eye on it. (Hollywood Reporter)
Don Coscarelli chatted with Dread Central on the future of the Phantasm franchise (a part of me will always have my fingers crossed for one more entry) and the demise of Bubba-Nosferatu.
Last Monday, Dread Central gave us a peek at the artwork for Albert Pyun’s adaptation of Cool Air.
I was happy to hear on Thursday that horror author Craig Spector will be directing an adaptation of his and John Skipp’s seminal novel, Dead Lines. I suspect that Spector opted to jump in the director’s chair after the adaptation of Animals went the way of disaster. Just saying… (Dread Central)
As part of Indie Horror Month, Dread Central did an awesome retrospective on The Blair Witch Project. I know there are some haters out there, but it’s hard to deny how far-reaching the film’s influence is, or the fact that the movie did so much with so little.
Mega Shark versus Mecha Shark… Oh boy… (Dread Central)
Twitch Film treated us to an awesome trailer for the giallo-inspired La Memoria Del Muerto.
