Even tho not much of a trailer (half a minute) it looks pretty decent, I tend to like a lot of Japanese films, but only thing that spoils them is they can go a bit ott in the way they act and the gore quite often comes across ridiculously stupid and overkill instead of being quite believable.

MOVIESFirst Look at ‘Hide and Seek’ Remake, Acquired by Saban FilmsPublished 3 hours ago on March 5, 2021 By Brad Miska

Bloody Disgusting has just scored a first look at CJ Entertainment’s horror-thriller remake Hide And Seek with news that Saban Films has taken North American, UK and Irish rights to the Joel David Moore (Hatchet, Youth in Oregon) directed redo of the 2013 hit (read our review).

“Dracula’s” Jonathan Rhys Meyers leads cast alongside Jacinda Barrett (“Bloodline”), Joe Pantoliano (“The Sopranos”) and Mustafa Shakir (“Luke Cage”).

“When a wealthy businessman follows a lead to find his missing brother, he dives headlong into a twisted underworld of squatters and vagrants that threatens to tear apart his family as he struggles to maintain his sanity.”

“Hide and Seek is a social horror-thriller that builds upon themes related to the widening gap between the upper 1% and the lower class,” explains the press release. “As population in urban areas balloon and real estate prices skyrocket, lower-income segments of society are finding themselves continually getting pushed out. This film explores the question of ‘what if’ when those left marginalized decide to take matters, and homes, into their own hands.”

"William Friedkin’s 1973 horror classic “The Exorcist” is the gift that keeps on giving, with a total of five films spawning out of William Peter Blatty’s source novel, and even a canceled Fox TV series from 2017. Reports emerged back in August that a reboot of the possession tale that started ’em all was in the works from Morgan Creek Entertainment, planned for theaters in 2021.

But director Friedkin is here to tell you that whatever “Exorcist” reboot or remake is in the cards, he has nothing to do with it. “There’s a rumor on IMDb that I’m involved with a new version of ‘The Exorcist,'” he tweeted this week. “This isn’t a rumor, it’s a flat-out lie. There’s not enough money or motivation in the world to get me to do this.”

Indeed, Friedkin hasn’t been involved with any of the “Exorcist” spinoff films, which most recently included “Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist,” directed by Paul Schrader and released in 2005. Friedkin’s last feature film, however, was 2017’s “The Devil and Father Amorth,” a documentary about a priest, Father Gabriele Amorth, as he performs his ninth exorcism on an Italian woman. Clearly the material still fascinates him. Earlier this year, Alexandre O. Philippe’s documentary “Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist” released, taking a deep dive into the making of the 1973 that reportedly sent audiences reeling down the aisles."

Christine

https://www.ihorror.com/bryan-fuller...cn2FDn8Y8bSuY8

Bryan Fuller (Hannibal) is set to write and direct a brand new adaptation of Stephen King’s Christine for Sony and Blumhouse Studios.

King’s novel focuses on a young man named Arnie who becomes obsessed with a 1958 Plymouth Fury that he purchases to fix up. The car has a sinister past and a taste for blood and soon it bends the young man to its will while eliminating anyone who insults them or tries to separate them.

The book was previously adapted by John Carpenter back in 1983. The horror master’s vision of the novel came with a killer score as well as an unforgettable soundtrack of classic 50s/60s rock.

According to Deadline, Jason Blum will produce the film under the Blumhouse banner along with Vincenzo Natali and Steven Hoban. Peter Kang is repping Sony Picture on the film.

Fuller comes to the piece with a solid catalog of work in the genre including cult-television favorites like Hannibal and Pushing Daisies as well as his work on the first–and many would argue best–season of American Gods based on the novel by Neil Gaiman.

The new adaptation joins a rather extensive queue of film adaptations of King’s properties over the last decade with new versions of The Stand and Firestarter as well as first-time adaptation of properties like The Outsider and Lisey’s Story, both of which have received incredible reviews

Another remake,

Pumpkinhead,

Pumpkinhead’: Paramount Players Conjuring a Remake of Stan Winston’s Classic,

Every horror fan knows Paramount Pictures, but Paramount Players is quietly building out quite the horror library. They were not only behind last year’s Spell, but also this October’s Paranormal Activity: The Next of Kin, and are also in production on several horror films from Orphan: First Kill to the Pet Sematary prequel, Something’s Wrong With Rose and Curfew.

The production label is looking hard into developing existing intellectual properties, which is why they’re conjuring up a remake of Pumpkinhead, Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively.

Lance Henriksen starred in the original Stan Winston-directed 1988 creature feature as Ed Harley, a grieving father who conjures up the titular monster in an effort to kill those who took his young son from him.

We hear a script is completed and that production is ramping up. Hoping to have director news in the coming months.

A few years back, Peter Block was announced to be producing the new film from a screenplay by Nate Atkins.

The franchise spawned three sequels, the 1994 Pumpkinhead II: Blood Wings, as well as the made-for-TV follows ups Pumpkinhead: Ashes to Ashes and Pumpkinhead: Blood Feud, broadcast on Syfy in October 2006 and on February 10, 2007, respectively.

Pumpkinhead was also turned into a comic book and even a poorly-received video game, Bloodwings: Pumpkinhead’s Revenge, back in 1995

Mario Bava’s Shocking ‘Rabid Dogs’ Is Getting Remade…Again.

Mario Bava’s crime thriller Rabid Dogs was remade by French director Éric Hannezo back in 2015 and was pretty well received. Now, an English-language remake is in the works for the cult film with Samuel Franco and Evan Kilgore penning the screenplay, writes Deadline.

The site notes that Franco and Kilgore have acquired the remake rights to the 1974 feature which follows the bungled robbery of three violent criminals and the hostages they take – including a young woman, a middle-aged man, and his child – as they attempt to make a clean getaway from the police.

“The U.S. scribes have been working out the original film’s sexist tones to reimagine the film as a present-day thriller and the first in a trilogy,” add the site.

The film’s original producer Alfredo Leone is aboard as exec-producer.

“Samuel and Evan are bright and have creatively mapped out an exciting new way to breathe new life into this film,” stated Leone. “To modernize it as an action-packed thriller. Something Mario would have loved. I can’t wait to see it come together.”

“We love thrillers, and this story has got a final plot twist that really shakes you. It’s genuinely shocking, and we’re excited and honored to be given the keys to remaking this classic, and to partner with Mr. Leone,” added Kilgore.

Franco will produce; Franco and Kilgore will write, with plans to shoot in 2022 for a 2023 release; Kilgore will also serve as exec producer.
