Joe Dante

It should be a cause for celebration any time horror legend Joe Dante gets a chance to bring his unique blend of chills and chuckles to a new project. Over the course of his lengthy and awesome career this guy has brought us gems like The Howling, Gremlins, The ‘burbs, and Eerie, Indiana, and though he still stays busy keeping the horror love alive over at Trailers From Hell, it’s a shame that we haven’t been able to see more feature work from him over the last decade or so. Heck, his latest film, The Hole, sat on the shelf for three years before most of us even got the chance to watch it. That’s just not enough Joe Dante. The world cries out for more. Good news! Ask and you shall receive. New Films Cinema has announced [via ComingSoon] that filming is scheduled to start soon on a new project they’ve put together for Dante called Air Disturbance. Taking place on a transcontinental flight between Los Angeles and Toronto, Air Disturbance tells the tale of a recently widowed man who must protect his children and the other passengers on a plane once the aircraft starts becoming affected by strange atmospheric phenomena.


Freddy vs Jason by TaraGraphics

They said it couldn’t be done. A fifth year of 31 Days of Horror? 31 more terror, gore and shower scene-filled movies worth highlighting? But Rejects always say die and never back away from a challenge (unless you count that time Robert Fure was challenged to a game of F*ck/Marry/Kill), so we’ve rounded up the horror fans among us and put together another month’s worth of genre fun. Enjoy! Synopsis: Director Ronny Yu got saddled with something fans both dreamed of and feared – a merging, a meeting, a battle between classic 80’s villains Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees. At a time when both franchises were deader in the water than their stars, the two icons clashed when a forgotten Freddy Krueger uses his mojo to trick Jason Voorhees into slaughtering the residents on the sleepy Elm Street, resurrecting their fears of an unknown killer and bringing Krueger back to power. What follows is an enjoyable battle of blades, a couple of boobs, and a damn fine time.



Another Hole In the Head 2011 Film Festival runs June 2nd through the 16th at the Roxie Theater in San Francisco. Check out the Festival Genius site for film schedules and tickets. I Am Nancy Directed by Arlene Marechal The question on everyone’s lips since 1984’s A Nightmare On Elm Street premiered has always been “Who is Nancy?” And by “always” I of course mean never. It’s not a question that anyone has ever been concerned with… until now. Nancy Thompson of course is the heroine of three of the films in the Elm Street series, and she’s played by Heather Langenkamp. The one constant throughout all of the original films is and will always be Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund), the razor-wielding, burned, revenge-seeking kiddie killer (or diddler depending on your interpretation). He is the icon of the series for obvious reasons, but Langenkamp and filmmaker Arlene Marechal are wondering why Nancy never reached those same heights. The answer seems pretty obvious, but let’s give them seventy plus minutes to explore the question anyway.



For no good reason, Freddy Krueger has come back to life. But that won’t stop his return from being a terrifying ride into the world of dreams now, will it? Certainly not.



If you’re in the mood for some mindless horror-themed comedy, then Robert Englund invites you to stay overnight at his Killer Pad.



Platinum Dunes’ remake machine can’t be kept down for long. After acknowledging that their plans for a Near Dark reboot have been scrapped due to it’s remarkable similarity to Twilight, the production company has green-lit a start date for their re-imagining of A Nightmare On Elm Street.



The Coroner ventures into the world of zombies and strippers once more, a trip that nearly destroyed his will to ever watch direct to DVD horror again the last time he tried it. Did a fully nude Jenna Jameson covered in blood win him over?



The power trio behind Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer sat down recently to talk with FSR about the film, the future, and Freddy Krueger’s tool. You just can’t plan ahead for some answers…



File this one squarely under the rumor heading for now as there’s nothing to back it up aside from one offhand comment sandwiched between vulvas and vibrators on a late night radio sex show.



Jenna on Zombie Strippers: “When you go to the movie theater, you don’t have to worry about crying. It’s all gore. It’s all beautiful, sexy, hot women.”



Stop the rumors about Englund returning as Freddy, he’s got an itch for The Vij.
