Titanoboa Movie Coming Resident Evil Team

Kirsten Howard May 23, 2019

The Meg's success has got some people wondering if there's gas in the oversized snake tank.

Resident Evil franchise masterminds Constantin Film and Jb Pictures have got a Titanoboa movie in development. The movie is looking to The Meg for inspiration as it plans to feature the giant extinct snake coming back from the dead somehow to wreak havoc, likely on some wholly unprepared humans.

The Titanoboa movie is being fast-tracked, according to Deadline, and will begin filming next year. There are no cast details to share with you yet, but Tony Giglio is penning the script right now. Jeremy Bolt and Robert Kulzer, the team working to make Monster Hunter a success, are behind the film.

The biggest snake in noted history, the Titanoboa has been long dead for about 58 million years, but back in its heydey it weighed about 2,500 lbs and grew up to 42 ft long,

Roger Corman and folks at The Asylum have a lot to answer for… That’s all I’m saying.

Sharknado. A film that proved you don’t have to have a lot of money or great CGI to pull in an audience on the Syfy channel. All you need is a giant creature and a ridiculous concept! Since the debut of That film, it seems like Syfy have greenlit any and all monster movie scripts that they’re sent. Hence we come to Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

A few years ago the idea of these two monster-movie franchises coming together – especially given they weere originally made by two different studios (Lake Placid was a Fox production, whilst

Grimmfest 2014: ‘Devil’s Tower’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Roxanne Pallett, Jason Mewes, Frances Ruffelle, Jessica-Jane Stafford, Emma Buckley, Peter Barrett | Written by Adam J. Marsh | Directed by Owen Tooth

Albion Court is the least ‘des res’ in the neighbourhood – a hangout for drug dealers, rife with squatters and two residents recently died in an apparent bizarre suicide pact. However when Sarah (Roxanne Pallett) in thrown out by her abusive, alcoholic mother (Frances Ruffelle), she has no choice but to move in to the notorious block. Determined to make the best of things Sarah tries to settle in but she is disturbed by bizarre neighbours, strange sounds coming through the paper-thin walls, creepy images on the TV and an overwhelming feeling that she is being watched.

Things get a whole lot worse when a badly mutilated body of one of her neighbours is found hanging in the lift and more and more residents begin to disappear – including squatter-come-burglar

Stars: Richard Moll, Mackenzie Rasman, Dave Randolph-Mayhem Davis, Shawn C. Philips, Jaren Mitchell, Robert Aberdeen, Sloane Coe, Jayme Bohn, Amy Brassette, Lucky Johnson | Written by Eric Forsberg, Griff Furst, Paul A. Birkett | Directed by Griff Furst

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water… Scratch that. Just when you thought it was safe to go anywhere Near water, along comes Ghost Shark!

Taking the shark flick to it’s illogical conclusion, Ghost Shark sees the titular shark haunting the beachside town of Smallport after being harpooned, shot and almost blown up by a couple of shark hunters. You see Smallport has a mysterious cave that dates back to the early settlement days, a cave that was the location for a number of deaths and a cave that is the subject of a local legend which foretells that any man, woman, and in this case shark,

A Ghost Shark's Tale: Director Griff Furst Previews Syfy's Latest Movie

Ghost Shark is not writer-director Griff Furst's first Syfy rodeo. Arachnoquake, Swamp Shark and Lake Placid 3 all bear his name as director. (He's also acted in quite a few Syfy movies.) Ghost Shark, though, is the first that gives him writing credit, for the story of a town haunted by the bloodthirsty phantom of a great white (airing Thursday, Aug. 22 at 9/8c). TV Guide Magazine spoke to Furst about the mechanics of a ghost shark kill, how one comes by the title of "Syfy original movie director," and the specter of Sharknado.

FEARnet Movie Review: 'Lake Placid 4: The Final Chapter'
 

When it comes to reviewing a Part 4, I often like to start out with a quick and hopefully helpful little "franchise history lesson," just to bring everyone up to speed -- but is that really necessary at this point? Probably not. What was once a strange but amusing little matinee movie from a well-known TV producer has (somehow, slowly) turned into a cable TV sequel franchise that exists for nothing more than to fill a random Saturday night slot with a lot of silliness and a bunch of crocodile madness. Congrats to the goofily-named Lake Placid 4: it not only qualifies under those criteria, it's also the most stupidly entertaining entry in this non-franchise since the first one... which wasn't all that great but hey, people who love movies about man-eating crocodiles* can't afford to be all that discerning. But for the sake of tradition: Lake Placid (1999), written by David E. Kelley

Lake Placid: The Final Chapter to Take a Bite out of Home Video

It astounds me to this very day what films get turned into franchises... for better or worse. Case in point: Lake Placid. Still, this final chapter is a bit better than you'd think, and we have the home video details for you right here.

DVD Review: Arachnoquake

Arachnoquake

Stars: Tracey Gold, Edward Furlong, Bug Hall, Ethan Phillips, Olivia Hardt, Megan Adelle | Written by Paul A. Birkett, Eric Forsberg | Directed by Griff Furst

Last week we reviewed Dragon Wasps, a Syfy channel produced creature feature released by Chelseas Films and this week we have Arachnoquake, a Syfy channel produced creature feature released by our friends at Signature Entertainment. I think I see a trend forming… Not that I’m complaining, I love the cheesy Syfy channel TV movies – mainly because unlike big-budget Hollywood flicks, these movies know exactly what they are and their limitations and have fun with it! This time round it’s the story of an earthquake in the Deep South that, besides making a mess of the roads, unleashes a swarm of albino spiders of all shapes and sizes who, as they do in these types of movies, converge on New Orleans to reek havoc on the locals.

Syfy and The Asylum Join Forces to Show Discovery Channel How Shark Week Should Really Be Done

Next week Discovery Channel begins its annual salute to nature’s perfect predators, but the festivities really begin on Syfy this Saturday night when an Asylum movie entitled Shark Week has its world premiere.

As you’ll see from the trailer below, what we have here is Jaws meets Saw.

The same writing/directing duo behind The Asylum’s earlier 2-Headed Shark Attack, Christopher Ray and H. Perry Horton, have reunited for an even bigger feeding frenzy.

I think as you read the plot synopsis below, we can all agree that this is pretty much where the Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” will inevitably lead.

Synopsis:

A group of complete strangers find themselves isolated by a wealthy madman on his island compound. They are forced into a horrifying gauntlet where they must survive a barrage of ever deadlier species of shark.

That’s Patrick Bergin (Patriot Games, Highway to Hell

Patrick Bergin and Yancy Butler Chumming the Waters for The Asylum's Shark Week

You really have got to hand it to The Asylum. Not content to just do mockbusters of big screen movies, now they’re mockbustering an entire week of programming on a cable television network with Shark Week.

Shark Week reunites 2-Headed Shark Attack director Christopher Olen Ray and writer H. Perry Horton for a carcharodon-a-thon Horton describes on his own Asylum fansite as “The Hunger Games meets Deep Blue Sea.”

Synopsis:

A group of complete strangers find themselves isolated by a wealthy madman on his island compound. They are forced into a horrifying gauntlet where they must survive a barrage of ever deadlier species of shark.

Patrick Bergin (Sleeping with the Enemy, Patriot Games) stars as the wealthy madman. Yancy Butler (“Witchblade”, Lake Placid 3) is his femme fatale sidekick. Erin Coker of The Asylum’s Air Collision and Josh Allen Nazis at the Center of the Earth are amongst

Syfy’s Swamp Volcano Erupts This Weekend; Haunted Forest Double Feature Slated for February

Tired of seeing New York and Los Angeles get destroyed on film? Wish disaster movies could find a different metropolis to reduce to rubble? This weekend’s Swamp Volcano unleashes a lava storm on Miami. And then a month from now you can take a double-dip trip to the black forest of fairy tales in two back-to-back Syfy original premieres: Black Forest and Gretl: Witch Hunter.

Hollywood’s renewed fascination with fractured takes on classic fairy tales sure came out of nowhere, didn’t it? Now it’s everywhere on big and small screens. February 25th will see Syfy getting in on the craze with a pair of unhappily ever afters making their world premieres as part of a Saturday night double feature.

First up at 7/6 Cst is Black Forest from director Patrick Dinhut (Dead & Deader) and screenwriter Frank H. Woodward (Lovecraft: Fear of the Unknown).

Michael Ironside and the evolution of his missing body parts

One of the all-time great screen villains, Michael Ironside also has a tendency to lose body parts. Phil celebrates the Laurence Olivier of the missing limb...

If there is one thing guaranteed to get me to watch a film, regardless of my mood or the movie’s reputation, it would be the sentence, “It’s got Michael Ironside in it”. I’m just a huge fan, and have loved his work ever since I first saw the original V TV mini-series one balmy childhood summer while I was staying at my Auntie Anne's.

As Ham Tyler, the leather jacketed ex-cia agent who becomes an instrumental figure in the Los Angeles Resistance movement, Ironside seemed to dominate every scene he was in, and what impressed me most about his zero tolerance approach to the alien visitors was that here was a good guy who looked and sounded like a bad guy.

Witness the Rage of the Yeti this Weekend on Syfy

This Saturday night, November 12th, marks that magical time again when Syfy dips into the Sasquatchploitation genre for a new movie. If you want to witness what it looks like when the Abominable Snowman gets pissed, then have a look at these video clips from Rage of the Yeti.

The first thing you need to understand about this Yeti flick is that the Yeti isn’t really a Yeti. It’s actually a Yeren, the film’s original title. (Yeren, that is; not It’s Actually a Yeren. But how funny would that have been?) The “Yeren” is described as a smaller breed of Bigfoot said to roam China’s remote Hubei province. The name “Yeren” translates to “Chinese Wildman”.

But who the hell in America knows what a Yeren is so Rage of the Yeti it is.

Heroes Hottie Elisabeth Rohm To Sheriff In Lake Placid: The Final Chapter

And now it's time for 'Lake Placid: The Final Chapter'. Last week we saw horror icon Robert Englund ('Strippers vs Werewolves') signed up to appear as poacher Jim for this the fourth installment in the franchise with bite. The flick from helmer Don Michael Paul also sees actress Yancy Butler return as Reba who first appeared in its predecessor 'Lake Placid 3'. And now its the turn of delightful Elisabeth Rohm (below) star of TV's 'Heroes' and the Antonio Negret thriller 'Transit'. The sequel is reportedly shooting in Bulgaria and will star Rohm as the new local Sheriff. The 'final' part of the franchise is expected to air on SyFy sometime next year...

A Nightmare on Lake Placid: The Final Chapter

Back in 1977 a young Robert Englund co-starred in Tobe Hooper’s Eaten Alive about a backwoods maniac feeding people to a crocodile. A quarter century later, Englund will be back contending with crocodiles in Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. And a former “Angel” star will be joining him.

Just a few weeks back we reported that Lake Placid 3 star Yancy Butler had already signed on for Lake Placid 4, which was gearing up to begin shooting in Bulgaria. Entertainment Weekly’s Inside TV just broke the news that the original Freddy Krueger has signed on to star in Lake Placid: The Final Chapter, following in the footsteps of Betty White, Cloris Leachman, and Colin Ferguson, who have each portrayed members of the Bickerman family in the preceding three Lake Placid films.

Robert Englund will portray Jim Bickerman, a poacher caught up in the latest man-eating crocodile rampage at

Yancy Butler Returns from the Dead for Lake Placid 4

When I reviewed Lake Placid 3 last year, I stated that the best part of the film was Yancy Butler’s surly croc hunter. The producers must have agreed since she’s just been signed to star in Lake Placid 4 despite her character having died in the previous film.

Yes, Virginia, there will be a Lake Placid 4. Bloody Disgusting broke the news that Yancy Butler (“Witchblade”) has signed on to star in it. Hopefully, she’ll be playing the same entertaining character she did in part three. If that’s the case, they’re going to have to explain why her character is no longer dead. Different character? Twin sister? Guess we’ll have to wait until Lake Placid 4 almost certainly premieres on Syfy sometime next year.

The only other info as of now regarding this latest sequel is that it will be directed by Don Michael Paul (Half Past Dead,
