Jason Blum makes hints of Halloween 2 to be in the works

Jason Blum makes hints of Halloween 2 to be in the works

Has Jason Blum put all the horror fanatics waiting in anticipation by confirming that Halloween 2 is happening? 

On his official Twitter page, Jason Blum gave two short answers to questions about if Halloween 2 will be in the works already. It’s been a few months since that news has circulated, and the answers that Blum gave are “Working on it” and “Patience.”

On that note, once it’s officially settled and date and cast are confirmed, we will give an update. Even though it was expressed a few months ago that Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak are expected to return, along with Nick Castle the original Mike Myers shows that he would be interested in reprising the role. Until that is officially confirmed, I would not get excited yet. 

For now, we need to sit and see what happens. Leave your comments below, would love to hear your thoughts.

John Carpenter to make a new horror film?!

John Carpenter to make a new horror film?!

It has been quoted from the man himself; John Carpenter is interested in making a new horror film. Carpenter who is famously known for Halloween, The Fog, The Thing and so much more was just recently honored at Cannes Film Festival, where they paid tribute to the horror genius with an award for The Thing.

Carpenter quoted the following (source from Collider)

”I don’t have one scheduled but I’m working on things. I made a lot of movies and I got burned out and I had to stop for a while. I have to have a life. Circumstance would have to be correct for me to do it again. I’d love to make a little horror film.. that would be great, or a big adventure film.”

Having had a chance to have met this incredible talented legend was beyond a great experience, and with not producing anything since 2010, I cannot wait to see what he has up his sleeves shortly.

Into The Dark: All That We Destroy (Review)

How far can a mother’s unconditional love for her child go? Well, this month’s Mother’s Day episode (directed by Chelsea Stardust) of the Into the Dark horror anthology shows how far one mother will go to help her son, even as far as helping him with his urges on murder.

All That We Destroy takes us into the life of Victoria (Samantha MathisAmerican Psycho, The Punisher) a geneticist who creates a group of clones for her son Spencer (Israel BroussardThe Bling Ring, Happy Death Day, Happy Death Day 2U) in hopes that it will cure him of his serial killer tendencies. 

The episode starts with a girl named Ashley (Aurora PerrineauTruth or Dare, Passengers) who is unconscious and getting cleaned up and dressed for Spencer’s arrival. She wakes up in a room with Spencer, (we are unaware of the connection between the two) still in a confusing state, she tries to come through when Spencer starts to strangle her and bash her head. That’s okay; I didn’t see that one coming either.

Ashley wakes up, and the process continues over and over again. This is an experiment that was started by Spencer’s mother. As a mother, you want your child to be all that they could be and succeed in life; a serial killer as her son is not what Victoria envisioned.

Victoria isn’t living an ordinary life of a mother; she’s living a nightmare knowing that her son is a serial killer, she is going above and beyond to try to fix it by creating clones to help his “cravings.” 

Spencer comes into contact with his bubbly neighbor Marissa (Dora Madison) and starts doing things like helping her carry boxes in the house for her and showcasing his artistic abilities by drawing her. It seems like he is trying to maintain some “normalcy” in his life, but Victoria doesn’t have it. She tries to hide him and who he is so that no one else around him will see their fate. Marissa will find out soon enough. 

This episode in this series is superb, along with the acting. It was cringe-worthy at times, only because you knew why Victoria went through the lengths she did. Any mother may do the same if given that chance, or some may not.

Check out the trailer below and make sure to watch this with your mother on Mother’s Day. ⬇️⬇️

Balletomane (Review)—House Of Tortured Souls

Balletomane (Review)—House Of Tortured Souls

If Black Swan and The Craft had a child, it would be called Balletomane. This 20 minute psychological short is directed by George James Fraser and stars Courtney Costa as Ellie, an aspiring dancer who faces ridicule from the other girls in her class all led by Nina Rose who is the H.B.I.C. 

Horror isn’t just associated with gore and murder; it’s associated with fears and day to day life. With being a young dancer, Ellie (Courtney Costa) struggles to be accepted not just with her dancing but in society alone and tends to “dance to her own beat” literally. 

With having a photo posted of her by the other mean girls and the leader of the pack at the dance, Ellie takes matters into her own hands to eliminate her enemy by conjuring a ‘spell.’ Upon practice, it seems that our H.B.I.C. (Nina Rose) falls to sudden death and a satisfying look appears on Ellie’s face. It’s a satisfaction to her knowing she can leap freely and has to take the matter into her own hands to get what she wants.

This short was filmed beautifully with actresses who did an outstanding job, and while there was not much dialogue, you can feel every ounce of what was taking place. Balletomane is currently going to premiere at a festival next month. I can not wait to see what else George James Fraser has to offer in future films.

The Act: Final Episode (Review)

The Act: Final Episode (Review)

Well, friends, the series has come to an end and it still leaves us with will there be a season 2? This episode ironically titled Free, has Gypsy convincing those around her (Mel, Lacey and her absent father) that she is innocent. With Dee Dee corrupting her from a young age, it is clear that you can tell that even though Gypsy knows right from wrong, she still has a mind like a child.

Gypsy starts to realize the harsh reality of how the world is especially without her mother, and being in prison is the worst way to find out how the world works. In her mind, as she is portrayed, she sees how tragic her situation is but does not grasp that this will not clear up and go back to normal. She is also learning that those she looked up to are now unsure if they can trust what she says. Take Lacey for instance. Gypsy is now relying on her friendship and hopes that she will visit her. Lacey is torn and wants answers, but it is unsure of what to do in this case, as she feels like she is to blame since she showed Gypsy the website to where Gypsy met Nick. Mel (Lacey’s mother) shows up for a visit which Gypsy was expecting to see Lacey. Mel along with the other neighbors was into Gypsy and Nick getting the death penalty. After talking to Gypsy, you can see that Mel is still trying to process if Dee Dee was abusing Gypsy, and if she could walk the whole time, then she should have walked away from the situation.

Gypsy’s lawyer is trying to prove that there was abuse and made up illnesses but will need to gain access to her medical records which only next of kin can obtain for her. She reaches out to her father for the records, and by her surprise, he visits her and explains that he tried being a part of her life. You can see the hurt in her eyes as she does not want to believe it because she wants to believe that everything her mother told her was correct. 

The kind of good news for Gypsy is that they are doing separate trials between her and Nick because she has a case with her medical records alone that will allow them to go into her home life and see how she lived under her mother’s care. Nick, realized that he is in this alone and will be serving a full-time sentence. 

 

This whole case leaves you torn; you are not sure which side to take and who deserved what, even if they were to it deserve something they cannot take matters into their own hands to end Dee Dee. There has been news circulating that there may be a season 2 which I believe may about Gypsy more, but there has not been any talk if it is going to start filming; hopefully, when news hits, we can update further if there is a follow-up season. For now, I want to hear your thoughts and opinions on how the show portrayed this tragic case.

The Act: Episode 7 Review

The Act: Episode 7 Review

We are coming to an end with this series, and episode 7 titled Bonnie and Clyde put most of the re-enactment into perspective and will leave your heart in your stomach. 

We see the two “love birds” on the bus which left off from episode 6 on their way to Wisconsin where Nicholas lives. His annoyed and no filtered mother (Juliette LewisNatural Born Killers, Whip It) picks them up, and it is clear that Nick did not inform Gypsy that he told his mother she was staying in a homeless shelter and needed somewhere else to go until she gets back on her feet. When asked about her situation with her mother, you can tell Gypsy was starting to feel the guilt as she told her lies. 

Upon arriving at the house, Gypsy takes over the room like she’s Nick’s housewife and more like how her mother would take care of her.  She starts panicking and getting worried that no one will find her mother, but Nick has a plan. They decide to post a status on Facebook to let everyone know that something was going on with Dee Dee. Being subtle, they wrote, “ That bitch is dead.” With a stir of comments flooding, Gypsy is wondering what is taking so long, but she doesn’t have to wonder much longer, she never disabled her location on Facebook.

Gypsy’s neighbor and friend Lacey gets an unsettling feeling after seeing the status and heads over to Dee Dee’s house with her mother to make sure everything was okay. It didn’t take long for the cops to appear and for them to be on the search for Gypsy, her neighbors are worried since her wheelchair is left behind and they know how “sick” she is. 

Nick’s mother has some suspicions on Gypsy’s behavior, you can see it in her facial expressions, but she does nothing more than encouraging her to try to make amends with her mother. The more that gets brought up, the more it sends Gypsy into a panic leading for her and Nick to fight outside. A little while later, police lights can be seen through the window. Amid their fear, they hide in the closet together where Gypsy tells him that they will both tell the truth because they did nothing wrong and that everything will be okay. 

With Gypsy and Nick being in separate interrogation rooms, Nick is very open and honest and starts telling the truth that he was the one who stabbed Dee Dee; he would be diagnosed later on with being on the autism spectrum, also unclear if he has multiple personality disorder. Gypsy, on the other hand, denied all questions and it seemed that she was silently pointing her finger at Nicholas.  

What comes to a complete shock with how this episode ended, was when the whole world saw that Gypsy could walk at the start of her trial. It is like everything went silent and you can hear the gasps from everyone who had no idea that she has been living this lie her whole life.

This all comes to an end this Wednesday May 1st on Hulu. All episodes are still up for those of you that are not caught up yet.

The Act: Episode 6 Review

The Act: Episode 6 Review

Get ready for everything to go into full circle cause this episode titled A Whole New World will put a lot into perspective for you as I know it did for me. Dee Dee is not only portrayed as a controlling, obsessive woman, but we all grow to dislike her, except for this episode passionately. It puts into the light as to why she is the way she was. The event starts with hearing Dee Dee scream; you already know the killing has begun, and then it takes us back to 1991 where Dee Dee was giving birth to Gypsy, and her mother was present. Being a parent, in general, can be very tough but being a first-time parent is nerve-racking at first, and it’s clear that Dee Dee’s mother Emma (Margo Martindale) oversteps her daughter by taking control of taking care of Gypsy since day 1. 

It seems from day 1 of having Gypsy that Dee Dee has a strict schedule. She goes with what a doctor told her and sticks to it and doesn’t switch it up not even with a mother’s intuition or “mother’s know best” motto. She was deemed to be not capable of being a mother because her mother pointed out her flaws even to go as far as to let the cops take her away in front of Gypsy. (At least that was how it was in the episode, a source says Dee Dee was pulled over and arrested but was not in prison for six months). That’s right; the overprotective “perfect” Dee Dee was arrested for check fraud. Her mother could have helped her but stated that she needs to learn her lesson especially taking ownership as a mother.

Let’s jump back to Gypsy and Nick. They are seen at a motel and decide to pack up, so before they head off, they go to a restaurant where Gypsy is full of anxiety even taking medication that belongs to her now deceased mother. When the police show up, Gypsy panics even more.  There was a small interaction with the officers when her prescription falls off the table, and the one officer picks it up for her, also looking at the name and calling her Claudine (Dee Dee). After the interaction, they hurry from the restaurant to come up with a new back up plan on what and where to go next. 

Dee Dee is now back from prison and is trying to build a bond with Gypsy, but her mother is standing in the way of that. Emma falls ill, and it seems that Dee Dee is purposely not taking care of her for a reason. To get rid of a controlling aspect in her life (sound familiar?). And now we jump back to Bonnie and Clyde. You can see the wheels turning in Gypsy’s head like she knows how big of a mistake she made and that she doesn’t seem too involved with Nick anymore—romantically that is. Like she wishes she could take this back, her feeling free from her mother’s control isn’t what she thought it would be. 

We bounce from Bonnie and Clyde back to a young Dee Dee panicking when Gypsy falls off the trampoline, she’s already a nervous first-time mom primarily when her mother uses to override her and her parenting, so now it’s full throttle. Not letting Gypsy do normal kid activities, kids fall, and they get up, but with her constant panicking and being over worried, it was already a sign that something more would escalate eventually from this. This is how it comes to an end, it all goes full circle in this episode. 

I had constant anxiety, and my heart was outside my chest watching this series, anticipating on what is yet to come, even from closely following this case I still can’t fathom on what Gypsy endured during her whole childhood. So many questions to ask and so many unanswered.

Celebrating the Twisted Twins

Celebrating the Twisted Twins

Today we celebrate Jen and Sylvia Soska the dynamic duo, or we know them as The Twisted Twins. Canadian born twins, Jen and Sylvia, were born on this day (April 29, 1983) whom they also share their birthday with their mother, Agnes.

The duo does it all, and by doing it, all they are filmmakers, producers, screenwriters and have acted in their films. They have created their own company Twisted Twins Productions which has been doing quite well for the past ten years with all their hard work and with all their supportive fans.

With their passion in horror since a young age, their work consists of Dead Hooker In A Trunk, American Mary, See No Evil 2 and have completed the remake to David Cronenberg’s Rabid

With their struggle in the entertainment industry, both women are an inspiration, for going and creating their films, living proof that if you want it, you go for it. Their presence alone at conventions is nothing but welcoming, and they embrace old and new supporters/fans every time.

Being a big fan of theirs, it’s been great seeing their accomplishments on being a part of their journey. 

On behalf of everyone with House Of Tortured Souls, Happy birthday ladies, can’t wait to see what this year brings for you and your projects.

[Episode Review] Twilight Zone: “The Comedian”

[Episode Review] Twilight Zone: “The Comedian”

I took advantage of watching the first episode of The Twilight Zone produced by Jordan Peele (Key & Peele, Get Out, Us), for free to see what the hype was. It premiered on April 1st on CBS All Access. This 10 episode anthology based on the original 1959 television series created by Rod Serling, is also narrated and hosted by Jordan Peele.

The first episode called “The Comedian” which was produced by Owen Harris takes us into the life of Samir Wassan (Kumail Nanjiani—Silicon Valley, Adventure Time) who is a struggling stand-up comedian. After his act, he sits at the bar where he stumbles upon J.C. Wheeler (Tracy Morgan—SNL, 30 Rock) a veteran comic whom he admires. In awe, he starts up a conversation with J.C. and asks if he can offer any advice, he advised Samir to add personal material into his act. When Samir takes the stage, he sticks to his old routine, upon silence from the crowd he starts to think about what J.C. said and makes jokes about his dog and the audience gets loud in laughter. What Samir discovers next is what boggles his mind. After the dog jokes, the dog vanished, and no one seems to remember that he existed. Samir determines that anyone and anything he mentions start to disappear forever. He has to make a crucial decision, is naming someone close to you worth mentioning in your act for laughs and are you prepared to lose them forever? 

In Samir’s case, he chooses to use those around him for laughs, he accidentally erased his nephew and then started deleting those he thinks will be better off living in this world. The love of his life Rena (Amara Karan—The Task, The Upside) breaks up with him after he decides to erase someone from her life that helped her become a successful lawyer. Samir still does not learn, he even goes as far to almost delete his fellow stand-up comedian rival Didi Scott (Diarra Kilpatrick) but was then confronted by Rena herself after she finds his journal with a list of people that he erased from this world. 

This is an ultimate lesson of going to the extreme while wanting fame and being selfish. A monster was created and cannot be stopped. It shows how far one will go for their career, and if it’s worth any sacrifice for you to go now in life. I thought this was well done in how it was perceived. It wasn’t hard to believe about or to figure out what was happening, but you do think about how your decisions in life can affect you and those around you — the perfect balance of real-life horror and sci-fi suspense.   

Check out the trailer below. The first episode is free and you can watch it on YouTube. ⬇️⬇️

The Act: Episode 5 Review

The Act: Episode 5 Review

We are getting closer and closer to the end of the series and in episode 5 titled “Plan B” things get very heated. We start this episode in 2015 with Gypsy engaging in cybersex with her “boyfriend” for two years, Nick. They create this fantasy where they escape into it, Nick having Gypsy call him ‘Victor ‘ his alter ego who saves Gypsy from her evil mother from all the bad she puts her through. Gypsy interrupts and comes up with a plan, she booked him a bus ticket and will convince her mother to get out of the house so the two can finally meet and that he can make a good impression on her mother. 

It skips to Nick working at his pizza job to start saving up so he can make this visit with Gypsy happen. It shows a quiet and shy Nick learning how to put the pizzas in the oven but dropping them every time. While his boss is patient with him, it seems that Nick lacks the confidence and gets frustrated inside to where he is seen standing outside in costume yelling for customers to visit the shop as if that’s the only simple task he can handle. 

It now pans to a very tired and sick Dee Dee who snaps at an anxious Gypsy who is over talking and begging her to go anywhere rather it be Disney or the zoo. Dee Dee apologizes for the outburst and settles to take Gypsy to the movies to see Cinderella. You can view all the anxiety in Gypsy; all she wants to do in her 20s is be free and have a relationship other than with her overbearing and over-controlling mother. With each argument and any put down that Dee Dee does to Gypsy, you can see it in Gypsy’s eyes, the exhaustion and her willing to do anything to get out of her mother’s wrath. During another video chat with Nick, she informs him to wear the nice shirt that she sent him and where to meet them along with how to make a perfect impression. 

The day is here, and with Gypsy knowing on who she will be finally seeing she wants to look her best. What her mother has in mind, dressing her adult daughter in a Cinderella dress and wig. As much as Gypsy refuses she still puts on the dress, in her mind she’ll look like a princess for her Prince Charming. Once arriving at the theater , Gypsy asks her mother if she can have a treat like sharing a soda to where Dee Dee snaps. As they pick their seats, Gypsy keeps looking her shoulder in anticipation and Dee Dee begins to notice how fidgety she is and even questions her about it. Nick enters and sits behind them, trying to start a polite conversation, however Dee Dee calls him out and moves Gypsy away causing Nick to walk out. Gypsy questions her mother asking why she has to talk to people that way and then excuses herself to the restroom in hopes of finding Nick. 

Once Gypsy heads to the restroom, Nick meets her there. Finally, the two can embrace, get to touch whom they fell in love with the last two years of talking. Taking longer than usual, Dee Dee gets restless and goes to search for her daughter, upon arrival to the locked door, she can hear soft moans and laughter inside. Feeling uncomfortable, Dee Dee heads back to the movie to which Gypsy arrives around the ending of it. Nick attempts again to hold the door for them and to start a conversation to where Dee Dee completely snaps. Both Nick’s and Gypsy’s facial expressions say it all. They grow cold.

With how Gypsy and Nick are beginning to execute their plan, it seems that Gypsy starts to reconsider, especially when Dee starts to apologize, you think the apology would be about her overreacting, but it’s more about how she didn’t give Gypsy a treat at the theater. Symbolism plays a big part at the end of the episode. Especially when it comes to the final scene with Gypsy going to the hunting store in the mall to purchase a knife; she even goes as far as to ask the guy behind the counter to what he would recommend. Red paint was dripping, red handle on the knife.. only leads to one thing — Dee Dee’s fate.

Desert Moon (Press Release)

Desert Moon (Press Release)

”Desert Moon”set to film May 2019. 

H2 CREW to Unleash a Terrifying Beast. 

Los Angeles, CA April 15, 2019: Independent horror producer/director Thomas Haley announced, to everyone’s surprise, late last week his first directorial feature in the horror genre. It is filled with a killer cast mixed of Indie Horror’s veterans and up and comings. 

Desert Moon, written by Joe Knetter (Terror Overload) and story by Thomas Haley, will begin filming early May with a release date at the end of 2019!! 

The Cast: 





Sarah French (Art of the Dead, Root Wood) stars as Lizzy. 

Jennifer Nangle ( Malvolia the Queen of Screams, Irrational Fear) stars as Alicia. 

Richard Grieco (21 Jump Street, If Looks Could Kill) stars as Sheriff Del.

Thomas Haley (Lilith, The Crossing) stars as Bruce. 

What we know about the story from the character break down is: Bruce (Haley) and Alicia (Nangle) are on a camping trip celebrating their tenth wedding anniversary where they meet a lone traveler, Lizzy (French), in a town where Sheriff Del (Grieco) is in charge. However, the movie poster gives us a terrorizing hint that a werewolf type beast will be causing some mayhem.

On the production side, Vincent J. Guastini ( The Last of the Mohicans, Dark Tapes) will be creating the special effects. Adam Beck (Camp Twilight, Booze, Broads, and Blackjack) is the cinematographer, shooting on RED’s Helium in beautiful 8K.
