Gremlins 3 Has A Dark And Twisted Script

JoBlo

It’s strange that it took this long for another movie to be made in this franchise considering how popular it was back in it’s heyday.

Via JoBlo:

It’s been close to thirty years since the release of GREMLINS 2: THE NEW BATCH, and fans have been wondering for years just when the destructive monsters would return. Zach Galligan, who played Billy Peltzer in both movies, indicated two years ago that the potential project would not be a remake, but a continuation along the same lines as JURASSIC WORLD or STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, meaning that it will likely feature new characters as well as old, but will respect what has come before. Chris Columbus recently spoke with /Film about the project and revealed that he’s written a script for the sequel which he is very pleased with.

I’m really proud of the script. It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon.

As Chris Columbus didn’t have much to do with GREMLINS 2, which found the franchise taking a big step towards becoming a live-action cartoon, it’s no surprise that he’d like to return to the slightly more serious tone of the first movie. I suppose that’s either good news or bad news depending on which GREMLINS film is your favourite. Speaking for myself, there’s plenty to love about both movies and it would be great if Columbus was able to find a way to successfully meld the slapstick violence of the sequel with something a little darker. Make those pesky, little bastards scary again.

So, Who IS H.P. Lovecraft?

Some of you may be wondering who that gentleman is who often appears on the Sci-Clops page here. That is H.P. Lovecraft who, in the 1920’s wrote a bunch of stories around a central horror theme. If you watched The Void recently on Netflix, that’s a pretty good representation of a ‘Lovecraftian theme’. His stories are written in an older fashion (think of eighteenth century style) but are pretty scary regardless. If you like horror, do give them a try. They are all free and can be found here
Enjoy!

Stranger Things ComicCon Trailer

Netflix

Lots in this Will-centric trailer to analyze. Interesting that Will, who was pretty much out of the picture for most of season 1 is not front and center stage. And it appears Eleven may be coming in at a later time. Still got that dark and creepy Stranger Things feel to it. Click the link below for the trailer.

George A. Romero, Father Of The Zombie Film, Dies At 77

The Hollywood Reporter

A truly sad day that one of the legends of horror film has passed!

Via Hollywood Reporter: 

His low-budget body of work, which included ‘Night of the Living Dead’ and ‘Dawn of the Dead,’ creeped out audiences for decades.

George A. Romero, the legendary writer-director from Pittsburgh who made the 1968 cult classic Night of the Living Dead for $114,000, thus spawning an unrelenting parade of zombie movies and TV shows, has died. He was 77.

Romero, who put out five other zombie movies after a copyright blunder cost him millions of dollars in profits on his wildly popular first one, died Sunday in his sleep after a battle with lung cancer,  his producing partner, Peter Grunwald, told the Los Angeles Times. Romero’s family confirmed his death to the newspaper as well.

Romero’s 1978 sequel Dawn of the Dead was made for $1.5 million and grossed $55 million. He followed that by writing and directing Day of the Dead (1985), Land of the Dead (2005), Diary of the Dead (2007) and Survival of the Dead (2009), a decomposing body of work that earned him the nickname Father of the Zombie Film.
