Jason Voorhees Is A Deadite, So Says Jason Goes To Hell Director

Long before any sort of justice had ever dawned, Freddy vs. Jason debuted in cinemas to what may be remembered as the first notable crossover between two major film franchises. Since then, we’ve received a couple Alien vs. Predator movies, the second of which performed so poorly that Fox split them back into their own separate entities, and to a much, much lesser extent, Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

And although the first seeds had been planted for an Elm Street crossover in the closing moments of 1993’s Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, director Adam Marcus was cross-pollinating with a much different horror franchise right under our noses.

To help set the stage, let’s look at an excerpt from a recent discussion he had with Horror Geek Life in which Marcus elaborated on his need to make sense of Friday the 13th‘s continuity:

“I was populating [Jason Goes to Hell] with Easter eggs,

10 Horror Movies That Went to Space
"In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream!" But can they hear Jason smash computer generated teenagers zipped up in virtual sleeping bags into each other? Can they hear the Leprechaun turn on his green lightsaber? What about Pinhead? Hear him? Everybody loves critically acclaimed sci-fi/horror mash-up fare like Alien, a stone cold cinema classic. But let's not overlook those guilty pleasure slasher franchises, either. What else can we do with the Leprechaun? I know! Leprechaun in Space! Today, we look at 10 times horror movies went to space.

Alien (1979)

First and foremost we must acknowledge Alien, the 1979 sci-fi horror film directed by Ridley Scott. Dan O'Bannon was ready to throw in the towel after a grueling preproduction on a proposed Dune movie went nowhere. As a last ditch effort, he came up with a story called Star Beast, together with Ronald Shusett, who later returned for 2004's Alien vs. Predator.

22 Movies That Form a Secret Cinematic Universe
Marvel Entertainment brought the idea of a shared cinematic universe to the forefront with the multibillion-dollar McU. In the years since Robert Downey Jr. first suited up as Iron Man, Warner Bros. has worked to catch-up with their Dceu. Universal ventured into shared cinematic universe territory with their cache of classic monsters, sticking Dr. Jekyll squarely into their rebooted Mummy movie. But did you know 20th Century Fox had their own secret shared cinematic universe going back in the '80s, stretching across multiple franchises, with over 20 films and counting?

It all starts with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Communist dictators and related thugs were often the villains in the TV shows and action movies of the '70s and '80s. But given the sensitive nature of international relations, not every movie was willing to go full on Red Dawn and point the cinematic finger at the Soviet Union or Cuba.

Freddy Vs. Jason Director Explains Why He Ended The Film The Way He Did

Long before any sort of justice had ever dawned, Freddy vs. Jason debuted in cinemas as what may be remembered as the first notable crossover between two major film franchises. Since then, we’ve received a couple Alien vs. Predator movies, the second of which performed so poorly that Fox split them back into their own separate entities, and to a much, much lesser extent, Lake Placid vs. Anaconda.

Believe it or not, though, the road to getting the dream mashup between the two slashers made was treacherous indeed. With the first seeds having been planted in the closing moments of 1993’s Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, you’d have thought we were off to the races. Alas, we we wrong.

None of us could have foreseen that the Hell Jason had actually been sent off to was that of the developmental variety, but, technically, he did at

Electrifying Predator Poster Teases the Hunter's Return
After sitting on the shelf for nearly a decade, Fox is getting ready to revive a classic franchise with The Predator. Director Shane Black, who starred in the original movie, has been hard at work on the reboot for a long time and fans have been waiting eagerly for a first look at the new take on the classic sci-fi series. Now, courtesy of the Brand Licensing Expo in London, we have a new poster for The Predator and it leans heavily into the recently confirmed suburban setting for the movie. Also, there's a lot of lightning.

The poster was shared to Instagram from the Brand Licensing Expo by Dirtees. The Predator poster has yet to be officially released by Fox, but we get a great look at it here. The image features a shot overlooking a suburban neighborhood from high above, with a bunch of lightning forming the distinct shape of the titular alien.

'Blade Runner 2049' Aims for $50M+ Opening, Hoping for Long Legs Throughout October

'Blade Runner 2049' Aims for $50M+ Opening, Hoping for Long Legs Throughout October
Debuting 35 years after the original, Blade Runner 2049 hopes to get October off to a good start on the heels of record numbers this past September. And while the sci-fi drama is looking for big numbers, Fox is delivering some counter-programming in the survival story The Mountain Between Us, Lionsgate is releasing the animated feature My Little Pony and Focus expands the release of Victoria and Abdul nationwide. Blade Runner 2049 and its reported, $150 million price tag, will debut in 4,058 North American theaters (third widest all-time) this weekend while Sony and partner Alcon Entertainment will deliver the film worldwide. Industry expectations are for a $100 million debut globally, with approximately 50% of that coming from the domestic opening as industry forecasts range from $45-55 million. From a comparison standpoint, focusing on films such as Mad Max: Fury Road and Prometheus make good sense given the 30 years between films in the Mad Max

Movie taglines: an underappreciated art form

Guy Buckland Oct 4, 2017

We salute the highs, lows and plain hilarious in the world of the movie tagline...

Hanging proudly on the wall of a room in my house where I escape to watch films and play videogames (a room that you can call anything you like, but – for the love of all that is decent – must not be referred to as a ‘man cave’) is a framed poster for a movie I have never seen. A movie that I shall probably never see.

It takes pride of place nestled between The Shining, which is the wife’s joint favourite film ever (tied with Overboard), and Batman ’89. Why? Because it has arguably the single greatest tagline ever plastered over a film advertisement:

"Unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the president of the United States."

It just makes me smile every time I enter the room. As Den of Geek

The Predator Is Officially Heading to Suburbia
It has been a while since we've seen a Predator movie, but that is going to change next year. Fox has been working on a reboot for quite some time and the movie has completed filming. Good or bad, The Predator is coming for us on August 3, 2018. Plot details have been a little sketchy, but we have heard previously that the long-awaited new Predator movie is going to feature a suburban setting. Now, Fox CEO Stacey Snider has confirmed that this is indeed going to be the case. Welcome to the suburbia, Predator franchise.

Stacey Snider recently spoke at length with Variety on a range of topics relating to Fox and the future of the studio. At one point, while discussing the possibility of franchise fatigue, she decided to talk a bit about The Predator, which is being directed by Shane Black. In addition to confirming the suburban setting, she

10 Things We Learned From Summer Movie Season 2017

10 Things We Learned From Summer Movie Season 2017
Every summer movie season has its highlights and low points – but from a commercial perspective, this year's edition was mostly just bleak. The final numbers aren't in yet, but 2017 is projected to be the lowest-grossing summer since 2006. (For perspective: That was the year that the Cars and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises first launched.) Sure, people still spend tons of money at the multiplex – the final box office tally is estimated to be around $3.8 billion. But, with a few major exceptions, there simply weren't the breakout, must-see event movies and

Blu-ray Review – Alien: Covenant (2017)

Alien: Covenant, 2017.

Directed by Ridley Scott.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, Demian Bichir, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Callie Hernandez, and Jussie Smollett.

Synopsis:

Alien: Covenant arrives in a Blu-ray+DVD+Digital Copy package that gives you multiple ways to watch the movie and its bonus materials. While the Alien franchise is probably played out at this point, Covenant is better than the mess that was Prometheus.

Sometimes sequels can work even if a movie was made without them in mind (see Back to the Future). Sometimes, though, a movie strikes one note so well that sequels are pretty much pointless (see Jaws).

Alien, though, is an interesting case study in sequel development. It was a one-note movie that set up a wash-rinse-repeat formula that could quickly become tedious, but I found that its two sequels formed a nice trilogy. (I know, I’m one of the few who liked Alien 3.

Don Mancini Has A Killer Idea For A Child’s Play/Elm Street Crossover

In 2003, Freddy vs. Jason arrived in cinemas, a film that I’d credit for kicking off the versus-style motif of Hollywood crossovers. In the time since, we’ve received other mashups such as Alien vs. Predator, Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and, perhaps the biggest movie to be produced within our lifetime, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.

Like any of us, those seated in prestigious positions can also dream. As it so happens, Don Mancini, director of the upcoming Cult of Chucky and the man responsible for bringing the Child’s Play film franchise back to its roots, has a cool idea for a crossover. And when you really think about it, it kind of makes sense.

Granted, pitting Freddy against Jason was a no-brainer because they’re both titans in the horror genre, but Mancini would like to see something he calls “Child’s Play on Elm Street.” When

A Fifth Invasion Of The Body Snatchers Movie Is Headed Our Way

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers is undoubtedly one of the most iconic stories in science fiction, which is perhaps why it’s been resurrected in cinema on a semi-regular basis. Since the first version of the tale arrived in theatres in 1956, we’ve seen a further three takes on that same narrative – some attempting to apply the social concerns of the time to the themes explored in the story. Now, we have a fifth heading our way, and this one comes from Warner Bros.

The source material is the 1955 novel The Body Snatchers, by Jack Finney – which began life as a serial published in Colliers Magazine in 1954. For those unfamiliar, the story sees alien seeds drift to Earth through space, and grow emotionally void clones of unsuspecting town residents while they sleep. The residents are then turned to dust, and the clones replace them in their community. The clones do not reproduce,
