[Review] ‘Bird Box’: Sandra Bullock Can’t Save This Bland Thriller

by We Love Horror
In the Susanne Bier-directed Bird Box, which Netflix releases in limited theaters December 13 before streaming worldwide on December 21, Sandra Bullock plays a woman who fights to protect her two children during the onset of an unseen apocalypse. Bird Box is interestingly similar to A Quiet Place, only has been in development since 2013 when IT and Mama director Andy Muschietti was attached to direct. While the latter focuses on sound, Bird Box takes on sight. In this thriller, the apocalypse hits like a storm when people randomly commit suicide after seeing “something”. In a sequence awfully similar to [...]

Scott Derrickson Finalizes Deal to Direct ‘Doctor Strange 2’!

by We Love Horror
One of my personal favorite Marvel movies was the mystical Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Sinister). I really can’t imagine anyone doing more justice to Stephen Strange and his wacky world than Derrickson, so I’m pleased to hear via THR tonight that Derrickson has inked a deal to direct the sequel. The site notes, “A search for a writer to pen the script is about to get underway.” The 2016 film was penned by C. Robert Cargill, who will hopefully be back for the follow-up. Benedict Cumberbatch, of course, will be playing the title [...]

Cristina Rodlo Joins the Cast of the World War II Set Second Season of “The Terror”

by We Love Horror
We’re heading out of the Arctic and back to World War II for the second season of AMC’s “The Terror,“ with the network officially ordering a second season back in June. Deadline reports today that actress Cristina Rodlo is the first to join the season’s cast as a series regular. Rodlo will play Luz, a nursing student who must make some tough decisions between her personal and professional life. Josef Kubota Wladyka (“Narcos”) will direct the first episode. The next iteration of “The Terror” anthology will be set during World War II and center on an uncanny specter that menaces a Japanese-American community from its [...]

Norman Reedus Thinks ‘Death Stranding’ is Releasing “early this coming year”

by We Love Horror
Now, despite the source, take what Norman Reedus says with that usual tub of salt. Death Stranding was a very unfortunate no-show at The Game Awards on Thursday, despite Kojima being his usual teasing self. And we still don’t have a release date for the game! However, according to Norman Reedus, that might change as early as next year. During his appearance on the Dan Fogler Podcast (which you can check out here, as well as read a transcript of the podcast), Reedus was asked about Death Stranding, and specifically, just when it was going to be released. His response? [...]

[Trailer] James Gunn-Produced ‘BrightBurn’ Looks Like a Supernatural Horror Version of ‘Superman’

by We Love Horror
Not long before all hell broke loose and he was wrongly demonized (and fired) over tasteless old jokes, James Gunn (Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy) had been hyping up a new horror project he was producing, which was shrouded in secrecy. We later learned that the film was titled BrightBurn, directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive). Today brings the trailer! Elizabeth Banks stars in BrightBurn, which looks to be a super-villain origin story that takes the core concept of Superman and flips it. In the film, a young boy not of this world is taken in by human parents who [...]

[It Came From the ‘80s] The Awesome Creature Effect We Almost Got in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors’

by We Love Horror
With horror industry heavy hitters already in place from the 1970s, the 1980s built upon that with the rise of brilliant minds in makeup and effects artists, as well as advances in technology. Artists like Rick Baker, Rob Bottin, Alec Gillis, Tom Woodruff Jr., Tom Savini, Stan Winston, and countless other artists that delivered groundbreaking, mind-blowing practical effects that ushered in the pre-CGI Golden Age of Cinema. Which meant a glorious glut of creatures in horror. More than just a technical marvel, the creatures on display in ‘80s horror meant tangible texture that still holds up decades later. Grotesque slimy skin [...]

Director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan’s Netflix Action Thriller ‘Kate’ Has One Hell of a Cool Storyline

by We Love Horror
Via THR tonight, Cedric Nicolas-Troyan (The Huntsman: Winter’s War) has signed on to direct an action thriller titled Kate for Netflix, with Deadpool 2 director David Leitch on board to executive produce. And man are we loving the plot of this one. The site details, “The script [written by] Umair Aleem follows a female assassin who, after being poisoned and with less than 24 hours to live, goes on a manhunt through the streets of Tokyo to take vengeance on her murderer before she dies.” Bryan Unkeless (I, Tonya) and Kelly McCormick (Atomic Blonde) are producing.

How ‘Silent Hill’ Made Map-Reading Fun

by We Love Horror
The way that video-games enable players to navigate fictional worlds – via mini-maps, waypoint markers, or directional arrows – is an undeniably dry topic, as reflected by the lack of mainstream interest in the subject. Not many people are willing to talk about such tedious minutiae, when they could instead be marveling at more attention-grabbing features, like shiny new graphics or dynamic weather effects. Yet make no mistake, this sorely overlooked area is every bit as important as those details, if not more. Why then, are good examples of gaming cartography so rarely acknowledged? Well, as with clunky user-interfaces or [...]

Margot Robbie Promises That ‘Birds of Prey’ Won’t Be Taking Itself Too Seriously

by We Love Horror
As announced last month, director Cathy Yan’s Birds of Prey will be fully titled Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn), a (super long) title that reflects the intended tone of the movie. Speaking with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” this week, star Margot Robbie explained why the title was extended. “It’s not a very serious movie, so we thought the title should reflect that,” Robbie told Fallon. “Birds of Prey makes it sound very serious and that kind of — that’s kind of like Harley adding, ‘Hey, don’t worry I’m in this too!’” You can check out [...]
