Finally a horror movie we know will be good – horror master Wes Craven (The Last House on the Left, A Nightmare on Elm Street) is working on 25/8 about a serial killer out to kill the seven kids that were born the night he died.
That’s enough to get me to see it, but if you need more Bloody Disgusting has all the details.
According to IMDb, Craven also has a film called Shocker in the works about a serial killer that comes back from the dead after being killed by the electric chair and then uses electricity to kill people. It sounds awfully close to an episode of Reaper (which I love, by the way), but I’d be interested to see it anyway. I’m a sucker for senseless horror flicks.
This is the most depressing news since the Patriots lost the Super Bowl less than 24 hours ago. The Nightmare on Elm Street remake rumors that have been buzzing about the past couple of weeks have been confirmed, but Robert Englund – the man who made that movie series good – won’t be involved.
Shock Til You Drop has the news straight from Platinum Dunes and New Line. This is a major bummer for fans. I can’t imagine anyone else playing Freddy with the same perfect mix of dry humor and terror. As lame as some of the sequels go, Freddy always made it entertaining.
