Bruce Campbell Says That ‘Evil Dead Rise’ Will Take Place in New Zealand
written by Trey Hilburn III

March 3, 2021

Evil Dead

Our boy, Bruce Campbell has been a busy bee. Just yesterday, we reported that his cameo in Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is most likely complete due to some cryptic clues that Campbell Tweeted. Now, Campbell has spilled the evil beans and let us know that the next Evil Dead film, titled Evil Dead Rise will take place in New Zealand.

“it’s out of the woods.” Campbell told Knox News.

That means that the next entry in the franchise will take place in the woods as well as an urban setting. Last year, Campbell had spilled earlier evil beans that said that the Evil Dead Rise will take place in the city and that the deadites would be fully unleashed.

Now, this means that the next film will follow in the footsteps of Ash Vs. Evil Dead which was also filmed in New Zealand. The aesthetic worked, even when the team had to build the original cabin that that Ash and Co. had to revisit to thwart off the deadites.

Any bit of news we can get for Evil Dead Rise is indeed exciting. Outside of this not much about the plot of the film is known at this point other than that director of The Hole in the Ground and 50 States of Fright will direct with Raimi, Rob Tapert and Campbell on as producers.

Documentary ‘The Complete History of Candyman’ Explores the Franchise Later This Year [Trailer]Published 3 hours ago on March 3, 2021 By John Squires

While we continue waiting for Nia DaCosta’s Candyman, currently set for theatrical release on August 27, 2021, we’ve learned that a Candyman documentary is also on the way.

Written and directed by Bryn Hammond, the documentary will explore the Tony Todd-starring movie franchise that was born out of Clive Barker‘s original story, “The Forbidden.”

The press release explains, “The Complete History of Candyman begins with a modest overview of the heyday of the horror genre and its sharp decline, solely down to the responsibility of the decay of the slasher sub-genre, when all of Hollywood, from the sleaziest independent backstreet butcher to the highest-paid studio executive, was greenlighting any film that featured a masked psychopath, scores of 30 + something teenagers with a half decent set of lungs, an ample array of ways to die and, in the best of both worlds, all three.

“It’s succinct view tours through Hollywood’s changing landscape and horror’s renaissance, during which the horror genre returned to producing critically and commercially successful horror films, much as it did during the era known as the Golden Age of slashers, which peaked between 1978 and 1984.

“Candyman History comes full circle by analyzing the symbiotic relationship between the horror genre and the African-American experience, and how Spike Lee’s masterpiece, Do the Right Thing, became the bracing model for how the studio system packaged contemporary racial issues in a manner that startlingly respects the ability of viewers to think for themselves, leading to the birth of Bernard Rose’s Candyman (the two are inextricably linked) and its sequels.

“The Complete History of Candyman delves into the original trilogy that ran from 1992 to 1999, based on the short story The Forbidden by Clive Barker, that by turns utilized the embodiment of fearmongering seen in Do the Right Thing, but by turning it into a literal bogeyman in the deprived Cabrini-Green area of Chicago. It uses elements of social criticism and the great rot of social housing, while posing the question “Does God exist?”, all through the eyes of the film’s protagonist, which allows the viewers a bizarre tour de force of the harsh reality that results when stereotypes applied to black people are believed en masse.

“The Complete History of Candyman presents an in-depth investigation into the series, the author and the up-and-coming Jordan Peele reboot from brand new and archival interviews from scholars and creators, from the voices who survived the genre’s past trends to those shaping its future.”

The plan is to release the documentary this coming Spring/Summer.

"The continued desire for horror content and our own creative bankrupcy and inability to come up with new ideas is what this made the perfect time to rehash yet another 80s movie."

District 9 sequel,


https://www.ihorror.com/a-district-9...eb5Kg2P9irxuHk

A ‘District 9’ Sequel is Being Written by Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell

District 9 is in the works from Neill Blomkamp. The 2009 sci-fi social commentary heavy film, was unlike anything audiences had seen before. The wide-open ending left plenty of room for a sequel. So, fans have waited over a decade for Blomkamp to return to District 9 and it looks like he is finally getting to work on a screenplay.

Blomkamp himself took to Twitter to share the good word by letting fans know that him along with Sharlto Copley and Terri Tatchell are all involved in a script for the aptly titled District 10.

If you recall the first film ended with Wikus totally transformed into a tragic alien who longed for his wife and was last seen in junk yards making his her origami roses. Pretty dang sad. It also ended with Christopher and his adorable little son taking control of their ship, that had remained stationary above Johannesburg for years following its arrival in 1982.

Meanwhile, the aliens that were left as residents of District 9 were moved and repurposed to their new home of District 10. The big mystery we were left with at the end was, would the aliens come back and exact revenge on humans for being so cruel to their entire species? Or, would they come back peacefully to give their family a ride back to their home? Either way, the story already sounds ****in’ fantastic.

District 9 played with very real themes of very real places and race relations in those areas. Blomkamp has been quoted stating that he wants District 10 to also carry similar social commentary and not lose the original message.

Personally, if I was Christopher and his little alien child, I would be coming back with a fleet and I would be pissed and fully armed. They were treated terribly during their time on Earth. So, again if it was me – humans would be in trouble I would get my folks out and then take the Ellen Ripley advice from Aliens and Nuke em from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.

Vampirella

Film and tv show

VAMPIRELLA FEATURE FILM AND VAMPIRELLA UNIVERSE TV SHOWS IN THE WORKS

https://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/...s-in-the-works

Back in 1969, Famous Monsters of Filmland's legendary editor/writer Forrest J. Ackerman teamed up with Trina Robbins to create the comic book character Vampirella, and more than fifty years later that character is still having adventures on the page. Soon she'll be having more adventures on the screen as well - Dynamite Entertainment and Mike The Pike Productions' Arowana Media Holdings have announced they've struck a deal to make a Vampirella feature film. A deal has also been closed for "the TV rights to characters and stories within the Vampirella Universe".

Mark Newbauer of Mike The Pike will produce the Vampirella film with Nick Barrucci and Dynamite's Juan Collado.

Newbauer released the following statement:

We are thrilled with the opportunity to bring this amazing character to screen in a big way. Nick Barucci, founder and CEO of the prolific Dynamite Comics, is an incredible visionary with an eye for story, and a talent for integration into the zeitgeist. [Barucci] and everyone at Dynamite have resurrected this character in a significant way over the past decade. We are truly grateful for the faith and support of Dynamite, Nick, and their reps, including producer/manager Ford Gilmore of Illuminati Entertainment."

Here's some information on Vampirella:

While facing Dracula and other creatures, Vampirella met and romanced Adam van Helsing, the son of monster hunter Conrad van Helsing. She also made allies including the werepanther, Pantha, and a washed up magician named Pendragon. Of course, Vampirella is also famous for her distinctive one-piece costume; which still endures in her modern Dynamite adventures.

Her origin has been switched up a few times, but here's how it started:

Vampirella originally hailed from the planet Drakulon, a world where blood flowed like water and where the natives, called the Vampiri, shared traditionally vampiric characteristics. Drakulon orbited a binary star which caused continuous droughts throughout the year. Unfortunately for the Vampiri, these droughts have gradually dried up their blood supply; threatening them with extinction. Vampirella's journey begins when an American space shuttle crashes on Drakulon. Hoping to save her people, she travels to Earth where she begins hunting dark remnants of her own race. Earth's vampires originate from Dracula, a forgotten member of the Vampiri race who left his homeworld centuries ago only to be corrupted by the demonic entity known as Chaos.

Vampirella was previously brought to the screen in a 1996 movie that was produced by Roger Corman, directed by Jim Wynorski, and starred Talisa Soto as the title character
