The Trailer For The Thing Prequel Has Arrived!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Wow - we had misgivings about this being developed, but we're not going to lie…it looks pretty effing scary!

Check out the just-released trailer for The Thing, which will reportedly be a prequel to the classic 1982 horror flick, and will focus on the Norwegian crew that discovers the shape-shifting alien in the Antarctic ice three days before the events of the first one (above)!

Since we pretty much know their fate at the start of the original, we'll be very curious to see how this new one plays out!

Here's hoping it can John Carpenter justice! We're cautiously optimistic that it will!

What do U think?? Are U looking forward to The Thing prequel??

It's on!

Iconic serial killer Michael Myers absolutely REFUSES to stay buried, because the much-discussed third addition the Rob Zombie-birthed reboot of the franchise, Halloween 3-D, has officially been given an October 26th, 2012 release date - despite the fact that there is no official director OR script!

Back in 2009, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer had been attached to take on the story, which would have picked up directly after Halloween II, as the former explained:

Horror Director Talks New Hellraiser And Halloween 3-D

Filed under: Film FlickersHalloween

horror director talks halloween 3d and hellraiser reboot

After Rob Zombie's unwatchable unimpressive Halloween II, we were NOT excited to hear that another Halloween film was in the works.

Fortunately, it looks like Rob Zombie won't be involved in the upcoming Halloween film, so MAYBE it won't be too bad.

Here's what horror director/Zombie's replacement Patrick Lussier had to say about Halloween 3-D, as well as his upcoming Hellraiser reboot:

"Yeah, well, [we've got] the [H3] script sitting there. We would make that in a hearbeat…[The Weinsteins'] focus has shifted onto Hellraiser, and they obviously want to focus on Scream 4…[their] sort of "slasher mind" is probably very, very focused on that film and the release of that film. So I can't really speak for them, you know?"

"I wish I had more to tell you. I know Todd and I would love to shoot that, love to shoot the script [that was] so much fun to write and delve into that Carpenter world."

Sounds like we've got a ways to go until the next Halloween, but looks like it'll def happen after Hellraiser, unless the Weinsteins decide to focus on Scream 5 by that point instead.

What upcoming horror movies are U excited for?
