The Last Horror Blog: Remembering George A. Romero, 'Leatherface,' 'Rawhead Rex,' 'Killing Ground' and Home Video Picks

just now

The dog days of summer may be upon us, but we've found movies that will offer solace to horror fans. First, though, let's pay tribute to an iconic figure.   Horror News Remembering George Romero – The horror world suffered a huge loss this past Sunday when filmmaker George A. Romero lost his battle with cancer. I thought about making this week’s entire column about Romero (and with his filmography, that would be pretty easy to do….), but ultimately decided that it would probably be best to share a few thoughts on what he meant to the genre and its fans.  George Romero was a real deal maverick -- a guy who made the films he wanted to make whether the studio system wanted to back him or not. And while not all of those films turned out to...

3 hours ago

David Leslie Johnson, whose credits include The Conjuring 2, Orphan and Wrath of the Titans, as well as the upcoming The Conjuring 3 and Dungeons and Dragons, has been tapped to write a new version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, according to Deadline.

It wasn't the first science fiction novel to tackle the idea of plants somehow becoming a...

Walton Goggins Joins 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'; Here's What We Know So Far

19 July 2017 2:00 PM, PDT

Created in 1996, Marvel Studios eventually began producing its own movies, starting with Iron Man, released in May 2008. Since then,16 of its movies have opened in theaters, up to and including Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Marvel has developed an admirable reputation for making incredibly popular blockbusters that usually win favor with critics too. Ant-Man dates back to 2006, when Marvel was still in its early days of developing its own projects. Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish worked on the script on and off over a period of about eight years. Before production was due to begin in 2014, though, Wright departed the project due to creative differences, prompting cries of concern from devoted fans. Ant-Man pressed onward under the direction of Peyton Reed and the movie opened in...

Comics on Film: Starting Fresh on Dceu's 'The Batman' Is a Good Idea

17 July 2017 6:00 PM, PDT

While outwardly it appears like the DC Extended Universe's solo Batman project seems to be a kind of organizational mess, increasingly it appears as though it's simply falling into the trap of being a potentially billion dollar-grossing film, which the studio wants to actively ensure success for. When speaking with MTV on a podcast recently, director Matt Reeves has confirmed that his ever-evolving solo Batman film starring Ben Affleck — and taking place in the same universe as Wonder Woman and Justice League — will be scrapping its previously developed script allegedly created by Affleck and DC Comics' Geoff Johns in favor of something entirely new, rebuilt from the ground up. This, of course, predictably led to certain...
