A whole nother slew of your favorite horror films are on the chopping block to be re-made and i've got all the scoop for ya.
-An almost four minute long trailer for the It's Alive remake has hit the web. You may remember seeing a similar trailer a while back, which was immediately pulled from Youtube. The baby gone mad remake will star Hostel Part 2's Bijou Phillips.
Get your pause buttons handy. At the 2:01 mark you can spot some Bijou nipple! Not that seeing Bijou Phillips in various states of undress is anything new for anyone in this world, but it's pretty interesting that a nip slip made it into the trailer! I'm not sure the trailer needed to be this long as it pretty much gives away everything, but this one actually looks like its got some bite.
-Writers Juliet Snowden and Stiles White have signed on to write the Poltergeist remake. They co-wrote the ghastly film Boogeyman a few years back and also wrote the Nic Cage film Knowing, which comes out early next year. From Speilberg to the folks who wrote Boogeyman...sigh...Never was a huge Poltergeist fan to begin with, and that's when it was in pretty good hands (Texas Chainsaw Massacre's Tobe Hooper directed).
-Your favorite Good Guy doll is back and he's gonna be voiced by Brad Dourif once again! It looks as if Don Mancini, the writer of the original Child's Play, will be stepping behind the camera to direct the upcoming remake. Mancini told Aint It Cool News that he's throwing the horror/comedy aspect of the later Chucky films out the window and is opting for a straight horror film in the vein of the original. He went on to say that the film will once again deal with the origins of Chucky. I'm guessing no John Waters this time around?
-An early synopsis for the Night of the Demons remake was provided to Bloody Disgusting this past weekend. The film stars Diora Baird(TCM: The Beginning), Shannon Elizabeth, and Monica Keena (Freddy vs Jason) and the plot is as follows :
Angela Feld is throwing the Halloween party to end all Halloween parties at the infamous Broussard Mansion in New Orleans, where dark events transpired almost a century ago. But when the packed party gets busted by the police, Angela and her friends Maddie, Lily, Suzanne, Colin, Dex and Jason are the only ones left behind. Soon Colin and Angela make a grisly discovery in the basement and inexplicable events start to take place. With the mansion gates mysteriously locked, the seven find themselves trapped for the night...and soon they're fighting ancient demons for their very souls.
What no Linnea Quigley!? Count me out!
-Children of the Corn is apparently not worthy of a big screen remake, as Anchor Bay will be releeasing it straight to television. The film will hit the Sci-fi channel sometime next year and the first two names cast have been annouced. David Anders (Heroes) and Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactic) will topline the remake. if the sci-fi original pictures of the past are any indication, this ones set to top Rob Zombie's Halloween as the worst horror remake of all time. I kid, I kid.
