Ansel Elgort (Baby Driver) stars in an intriguing new film called Jonathan and it has quite a unique promise. The story centers on two brothers whose minds are trapped in the same body and each one of them lives their own separate lives. Things get really awkward when they both end up falling for the same woman. Today we’ve got a trailer for the film to share with you and it looks really good! Here’s the synopsis:
The film tells the story of Jonathan, a successful architect who lives a normal life dictated by a strict routine. Jonathan’s twin brother John, on the other hand, sleeps all day and spends the night secretly socializing. When Jonathan discovers that John has a secret girlfriend, Elena, he forces John to end things and then starts a new relationship Elena out of curiosity and jealousy. John ultimately catches wind of the affair, which puts his relationship with his brother at serious risk and forces Jonathan to seek the help of Dr. Mina Nariman, the brothers’ controlling doctor.
The movie also star Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent, Assassination Nation) and Patricia Clarkson (Six Feet Under, Sharp Objects).
Jonathan was directed by Bill Oliver (Guilt), who wrote the script with Peter Nickowitz. The film will be released on November 16th.
I never thought I’d see Robert Englund back in the role of Freddy Krueger after all these years, but he’s reprising the role one more time in an upcoming episode of The Goldbergs. I imagine that might be the last time we see Englund in the role of Freddy. But, he’s still hoping to see A Nightmare on Elm Street prequel one day.
Tobe Hooper did bring that story to life in the the pilot episode of Freddy’s Nightmares, and the film franchise has touched on the backstory several times, but seeing an entair movie dedicated to Freddy could actually work. Here’s what Englund had to say at the recent Monster Mania convention in Hunt Valley, Maryland:
“I’ve always thought that [not having a prequel] is a misruling in the mythology of A Nightmare on Elm Street. It got close to being rectified with Tobe Hooper’s pilot for the TV series, and there was a script that was supposedly to be directed by John McNaughton, who did Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer. There was a prequel script… I think it was called Krueger: The First Kills. And it was… the last children being killed… the two detectives that found Freddy and busted him… then the body of the film were the ambulance-chasing, sleazy lawyers that get Freddy off.”
He went on to say:
“The lawyers are actually the best parts [of that script]. There’s two of them. Freddy in court… Freddy at the table… Freddy on the witness stand… Freddy in jail. But it’s about the lawyers getting him off. They get him off and Freddy gloats too much on the courtroom stairs. The end of the movie is Freddy being burned alive. I’ve had a fascination with these projects since I did the pilot with Tobe Hooper.”
If you’ve never seen that pilot episode of Freddy’s Nightmares, I included it below. Of course, if a prequel film ever did get made, Englund would love to at least have a cameo:
“I would love to cameo in anything with integrity, connected with the franchise.”
A Nightmare on Elm Street is one of my favorite horror movie franchises and I’ve always wanted to see a prequel film made. Hopefully, one day it’ll happen.
It’s great to Fangoria back in action and producing horror movies! I really enjoyed their last film Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich. It really captured the greatness of those old-school B-horror films.
Their next movie is a horror comedy called Satanic Panic, which is said to include “a healthy dash of imaginative gore.” Rebecca Romijn (Star Trek: Discovery, X-Men) is set to star in the Chelsea Stardust-directed film.
The plot follows a pizza delivery girl (Hayley Griffith) at the end of her financial rope who has to fight for her life — and her tips — when her last order of the night turns out to be high society Satanists (led by Romijn) in need of a virgin sacrifice.
Sounds like it will be a silly fun horror film! Romijn and Griffith will be joined by Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day), Arden Myrin (Insatiable), Jerry O’Connell (Carter), AJ Bowen (The Sacrament), Jordan Ladd (Cabin Fever), Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords Of Salem), Hannah Stocking (Boo 2! A Madea Halloween), Michael Polish (Some Kind Of Hate), Whitney Moore (House Of Demons) and Skeeta Jenkins (Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich).
Fangoria is set to start production this week in Dallas, Texas and I’ll be looking forward to watching it.
Morgues already make a great setting for any horror film, but throw a possessed dead body into the mix and then you’ve got yourself a creepy-ass story to tell! It’s really a simple premise, but it sure looks like it’ll make for an entertaining horror film that will offer some crazy thrills and chills, especially if you scare easy.
The movie stars Pretty Little Liars‘ Shay Mitchell and the film is set in the aftermath of an exorcism that has gone horribly wrong. The body may be dead, but there’s an evil demon that still resides in it who is going to find joy in scaring the living shit out of a young women who is working the graveyard shift at the morgue… alone. Here’s the synopsis:
A shocking exorcism spirals out of control, claiming the life of a young woman. Months later, Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell) is working the graveyard shift in the morgue when she takes delivery of a disfigured cadaver. Locked alone inside the basement corridors, Megan begins to experience horrifying visions and starts to suspect that the body may be possessed by a ruthless demonic force.
The perfect place to watch this movie would be in a morgue for the optimal creep out movie watching experience.

If you’re a fan of Game Boy, Air Jordans IV, and you have an $1,350 to spend on a pair of shoes, today’s your lucky day!
Johnny Barry’s Freaker Sneaks has created a pair of Game Boy-themed Air Jordans IV that fans of the 90s are going to flip over! Why are they so expensive to buy? Because there are only a limited edition of 10 pairs that will be sold.
The sneakers looks awesome and they perfectly encapsulate everything that make the original Game Boy so awesome. What makes these shoes even better in that the d-pad on the buttons located on the left and right heels of the shoes are actually press-able.
Also, in case you weren’t aware. Both the Air Jordan IV’s and the Game Boy were released in 1989, so they kinda belong together.

Here’s a question for you. Did you ever wear Air Jordan IV’s while playing Game Boy!?
I know a lot of you have been curious to see what the visual style of HBO’s upcoming Watchmen series will be like and now, today, we have our first look! The image was revealed with the launch of the official Watchmen Instagram page.
We have no idea who is character is, but I’m sure it will come in time. Faceless law enforcement officers certainly fits in with the world that was created in the original comic series, though.
The series is based on Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons DC graphic novel, and it’s been explained that series will not be an adaptation of that. It will be set in the same alternate history universe where superheroes are treated as outlaws, but the story will focus on a whole new present day setting and characters.
This series will expand on that universe and creator Damon Lindelof has stressed that he would not be messing with the original story. He explained that "Watchmen embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own."
When talking about the new characters that will fill the story, Lindelof said:
"Some of the characters will be unknown. New faces. New masks to cover them. We also intend to revisit the past century of Costumed Adventuring through a surprising yet familiar set of eyes…and it is here we will be taking our greatest risks."
He also added:
This story will be set in the world its creators painstakingly built…but in the tradition of the work that inspired it, this new story must be original. It has to vibrate with the seismic unpredictability of its own tectonic plates. It must ask new questions and explore the world through a fresh lens. Most importantly, it must be contemporary. The Old Testament was specific to the Eighties of Reagan and Thatcher and Gorbachev. Ours needs to resonate with the frequency of Trump and May and Putin and the horse that he rides around on, shirtless. And speaking of Horsemen, The End of the World is off the table…which means the heroes and villains–as if the two are distinguishable–are playing for different stakes entirely.
The cast for the series includes Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Adelaide Clemens, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, Lily Rose Smith, and Adelynn Spoon.
Lindelof wrote and is executive producing the series and Nicole Kassell will direct and also executive produce. Watchmen will premiere something in 2019.
Stephen Amell recently shared a photo from the set of The CW’s “Elseworlds” DC TV crossover series. Amell (Oliver Queen/Green Arrow) is joined by Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash) in the photo and the are standing alongside special guest star Tyler Hoechlin, who is sporting Superman’s black suit! I’ve gotta say it looks awesome and I’m kinda geeking out over it!
Fans were hoping to see Henry Cavill wear the black suit in Justice League, but it didn’t happen. Luckily the DC TV shows are here to give the fans what they want.
While plot details for the upcoming crossover event remain under wraps, it will introduce both Batwoman (Ruby Rose) and Lois Lane (Elizabeth Tulloch) to the DC TV multiverse. It will also mark the first time Arrow and The Flash meet the Man of Steel!
While MGM is developing a reboot of Child’s Play, the co-creator of the franchise, Dan Mancini, is also developing a TV series that will connect to the original film franchise. We haven’t seen a lot of details on the series since it was announced. Mancini previously teased that it would be "darker than ever before. It’s going to be very creepy."
Now today we have some new details to share with you thanks to Mancini and producer David Kirschner. They explained to Bloody-Disgusting that the show aims to bring the franchise back to its roots:
“We deliberately ended Cult [of Chucky] with a bunch of cliffhangers to set up a TV series. Because there are so many different threads now, television could best accommodate that so that was done intentionally. At the same time, we have a whole new world, a bunch of new characters which we can say nothing about.”
For those of you who don’t know, Mancini has written every Child’s Play film and has directed the last three. This guy knows Chucky better than anyone and if anyone is going to continue the story, it’s him. This series is the project that true hardcore Child’s Play fans are really excited about. Not, that remake.
I think it’s cool that the last film was used to set up the Chucky series! Just in case you aren’t aware, Cult of Chucky introduced Chucky’s ability to possess multiple dolls simultaneously. Kirschner went on to say that the series will get back to the basics of the core concept of the franchise:
“The only thing I think we can say is from the original film that Don wrote, Child’s Play, we are playing with that concept again, the idea of child’s play. I’ll let you guys fill in the pieces of that.”
Mancini then went on to add that, “It involves children.” Bringing kids back into the mix of the horror of Chucky should be fun. Mancini has enjoyed reinventing the franchise over the past seven films, and this series is going to be a very different medium for him and his creative team to play with. When talking about that he says:
“We saw that after seven movies, how can we flip again? So this time not by merely changing genre but by changing medium. This will give us a different kind of canvas, a much bigger canvas to explore characters and relationships.”
Are you looking forward to seeing how this series plays out?
