‘Jigsaw’ Takes Halloween!


Lionsgate announced today Jigsaw as the official title of its upcoming SAW reboot, in theaters this Halloween after a seven year hiatus. Michael and Peter Spierig (Daybreakers) helmed the sequel, penned by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg (Piranha 3D) and creators James Wan and Leigh Whannell.

No official synopsis yet, but Jigsaw is said to continue and expand on its gruesome mythology with a twisted new tale that possibly sees the return of John Kramer and his traps. Games begin Oct. 27.

Named the Most Successful Horror Movie Series of all time by Guinness World Records in 2010, SAW spawned six sequels and earned more than $870 million worldwide. SAW launched director Wan’s career and gave horror one of its most memorable villains in Tobin Bell’s John “Jigsaw” Kramer.

Alexandra Park Is a Good Reason to Dive Into ‘12 Feet Deep: Trapped Sisters’


MarVista Entertainment has set a June 20 VOD release date for Victim director Matt Eskandari’s new thriller 12 Feet Deep: Trapped Sisters, a film whose title’s ridiculousness is only eclipsed by its concept: two hot sisters trapped underneath the fiberglass cover of an Olympic-sized pool over a holiday weekend.

Alexandra Park (pictured above) and Nora-Jane Noone (The Descent) play the sisters with Diane Farr (”Californication”) and genre icon Tobin Bell (SAW) in supporting roles – could he have rigged the pool? Nah. Still very cool to see him pop up in this!

Writer and director Ryan Bellgardt presents Gremlin – a film that, despite what its marketing materials may suggest, has nothing to do with the beloved Joe Dante-directed Gremlins, but still features a demonic creature you don’t want anyone gifting you.

First Look at Rachel Nichols as Pregnant MILF in ‘Inside’ Remake!


Ask most horror fans about the 2007 French slasher Inside and they’ll rant and rave how it’s one of the best horror films ever made. It’s not. Not even close. Sure, if you’re a gore hound, there’s plenty to get you off. The plot is good too – widowed mom-to-be tormented by psycho-bitch out to take her unborn child – but the execution is terrible.

When word broke of an American remake of Inside, starring genre stunner Rachel Nichols, most cried like babies, but we nearly crapped our diapers with excitement! An opportunity to see a good story done right is A-OK with us! Miguel Ángel Vivas directs and Jaume Balaguero (Quarantine) pens.

How Salma Hayek Was Duped Into Stripping!


Salma Hayek remains one of Hollywood’s most beautiful women and her iconic From Dusk Till Dawn scene as stripping serpent queen Santanico Pandemonium can only be described as stroker’s cocaine. Hayek reminisced with Yahoo about getting the gig, fear of snakes, director Robert Rodriguez and writer Quentin Tarantino.

According to Hayek, the part came about when Rodriguez was auditioning strippers for a brief part in his and Tarantino’s Four Rooms and, well, just couldn’t find a good one! Hayek came to the rescue despite her hesitation to strip on camera. Tarantino saw the footage and wrote the Satanico Pandemonium role for Hayek.

The whole story is fun and sexy to hear Hayek tell it, but if you’ve seen the Four Rooms scene, you know Rodriguez’s mom could have done it and he and Tarantino just wanted to get Hayek to strip!
