Scream 4K

Scream 4K
Nobody did better with horror franchises than Wes Craven, who reinvigorated the genre in this relentlessly bloody thriller. Its self-referential gimmick should have been exploited decades before: what if the teenagers in movies were like real teenagers that watch horror movies. . . and that must rely on their movie knowledge when confronted with R-rated carnage? 25 years later the show holds up well, at least until the final revelations. Kevin Williamson’s screenplay and Mark Irwin’s camerawork make Drew Barrymore, Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and Rose McGowan the most attractive and intelligent horror scream queens since Peggy Cummins tried to kick some sense into Dana Andrews.

‘Scream’ Narrowly Avoided Losing Director Wes Craven and Nc-17 Rating

‘Scream’ Narrowly Avoided Losing Director Wes Craven and Nc-17 Rating
It’s hard to believe now that the 1996 horror feature “Scream” is anything short of a classic, but according to a new oral history written on the feature by The Hollywood Reporter, the movie almost lost its own life at several points in its development.

Director Wes Craven had already had to be coaxed into working on the feature, not necessarily wanting to work in the horror genre again. But once Craven came aboard and the feature started shooting he nearly ended up being fired. According to those who worked on the film, production studio Miramax and Bob Weinstein, didn’t like the legendary opening sequence with Drew Barrymore.

“Wes got the phone call from the studio, and I was sitting behind him in my chair, and I just saw his back slump. He just started sliding down the chair. They didn’t think anything about it was good. They

10 Things You Never Knew About The My Bloody Valentine Remake (2009)
For horror fans, the annual cinematic destination come February 14th will always be My Bloody Valentine, the stellar slasher whodunit made once in 1981 and remade a second time in 2009. Directed by Patrick Lussier, the 2009 redo garnered positive reviews for being a fun, hyper-violent throwback slasher movie with the campy gimmick of being projected in 3D.

Terminator Genisys Sequels Would’ve Revealed Skynet’s Origin

Terminator Genisys Sequels Would’ve Revealed Skynet’s Origin
After Terminator: Dark Fate bombed at the box office, it looked like the third attempt at trying to reboot the franchise and launch an all-new trilogy in the space of a decade had finally hammered the final nail in the coffin following the dual disappointments of Genisys and Salvation, which at least had the benefit of earning at least $370 million apiece at the box office compared to the fifth installment’s meager $261 million.

While neither Salvation or Dark Fate officially had sequels green-lit, follow-ups for Genisys were already penciled in for May 2017 and June 2018 before the plug was pulled and the rights reverted back to James Cameron, with the initial plan being to shoot them back-to-back. After a poor commercial performance that would have been a total disaster if it hadn’t been for a strong showing in China, not to mention widespread apathy from both fans and critics, it

Scrapped Terminator: Genisys Sequel Plans Revealed by Writer

Scrapped Terminator: Genisys Sequel Plans Revealed by Writer
Despite the Terminator franchise now being comprised of six movies, only the first two are spoken of highly, with each movie chasing that same high ever since. One such attempt was 2015's Terminator Genisys, which, while hinting at things to come, ended after one movie. Well, Patrick Lussier, who co-wrote Terminator: Genisys alongside Laeta Kalogridis, has been discussing the movie, and what would have happened had Genisys been a success.

"We wrote like two drafts of the next one, the direct sequel, and had an outline for the third one, what that would be, that answered all the questions that were presented in Genisys and brought it back around and closed it all off."

While Terminator: Genisys relied heavily on the previous installments (often to its detriment), Lussier added that the sequels would have gone a long way toward separating themselves from the rest of the franchise and branching off in their own direction.

5 Reasons Wes Craven's Dracula 2000 Is An Underrated Vampire Movie (& 5 Reasons It's Terrible)

5 Reasons Wes Craven's Dracula 2000 Is An Underrated Vampire Movie (& 5 Reasons It's Terrible)
There's no doubt Dracula 2000 is a testament to the new millennium. Directed by Patrick Lussier and produced by Wes Craven, this 2000 horror flick reimagines the vampire trope for the original Hot Topic generation. 20 years later, Dracula 2000 remains awash in mall goth nostalgia. Whether or not this is a good thing is up for debate.

Dracula 2000 is a major departure from Bram Stoker's 1897 novel. Its star-studded cast ranges from Gerard Butler to Omar Epps to Christopher Plummer. The film takes place in muggy New Orleans, adding extra moodiness to a film drowning in histrionics. Is Dracula 2000 a misunderstood and underrated bloodsucker feature... or is it just terrible? Read on and suss it out for yourself.

Director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer have re-teamed for Trick, which stars Omar Epps in the main role of Detective Mike Denver, a man obsessed with a serial killer that has remained one step ahead of him for years.

Obsessed with catching the murderer, Denver will do whatever it takes to stop Trick claiming their next victim.

Trick also stars Ellen Adair as Sheriff Lisa Jayne, the sheriff in the small town of Benton who has always considered Detective Denver as her mentor.
