Grinning Skull at the Movies: horror movie news…..

27 Oct

Ok, so it’s nearly that time of year, so I thought I’d enlighten you on some upcoming horror movie news. If you haven’t gathered already, I am a big horror nut,  and I do like to keep up with what’s coming out, so I don’t miss out on some cool films (well, some are cool, some are appalling, you just never know until you watch them!)

So here’s some snippets of news, to get your teeth into….

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER TO STAR IN NEW ZOMBIE MOVIE!

In a weird move, Arnie has apparently signed up to play the father of a teenager infected with the zombie virus. the film Maggie will tell the tale of this tragic transformation and its effects on a family. Lets face it, this could be shit, but Arnie Vs Zombies has far more appeal than Brad Shitt ever did! Roll on Legend of Conan, that’s all I say!!

ARMY OF DARKNESS 2 (EVIL DEAD 4/EVIL DEAD 2 REMAKE), AND THE RETURN OF ASH!!

From the end of the Evil Dead remake, we knew there was something good to come from good old Bruce Cambell, and this end credits cameo and now confirmed news that he will indeed reprise his role as Ash in the sequel to both the original trilogy and strangely the new remake, how thats going to be dealt with in this mash up is anyone’s guess, but I don’t mind, I have a feeling it’s going to get groovy….

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tom Savini’s Death Island movie campaign on Indiegogo

In a departure from the usual wargaming stuff, we go to the realms of movieland and the undead, Ladies and Gentlemen, prepare for Tom Savini‘s Death Island!!

Ok, so if you don’t know who Tom Savini is, you might as well be a zombie! Serious fans of the horror genre will instantly recognise the legendary man behind this brilliant new Indiegogo campaign to raise $1 million to fund a new zombie film, Death Island.

Tom is a SFX pioneer, accomplished actor (Knightriders, Dawn of the dead (original & remake), From Dusk till Dawn) , director and producer, and this new movie will mark his return as director since he did the remake of Romero’s original Night of the Living dead. With the help of us lot, we could make this a reality and even get a speaking role in the upcoming film (Yeah, I wish..) But for the princely sum of $10, you will be added to the credits of the actual movie!

Speaking as someone who grew up with reading Tom’s SFX books, and watching his effects in many horror movies (Especially the original Dawn of the dead, in which not only did he do the zombie SFX, but played a biker too!!) It would be great to think that a lowly zombie fan such as myself could be involved, sure I haven’t the cash to pay the big bucks, but $10 is a great price for what you get, and you’ll really be helping out too! I’m definately up for this, and hope that some of you out there will dole out a little $10 zombie love for our Tom, to get a great sounding Zombie movie made (One with some proper pedigree too!!)

Involved as well, is the one and only Tony (Candyman) Todd, Tiffany Shepis and Debbie Rochon, and more thought to be signing on too once funding is secured.  The plot seems to indicate that the themes will take the Zombie back to its voodoo roots, and add more to the movie mythology of these undead flesheaters! Brilliant!!

$10 is around £6.50 or so, so as soon as I get a few pounds spare, I’ll be funding for a space in the limelight!!

How about you? Get over and check it out people!
