I Am Legend (2007)
Based on the novel by the massively influential sci-fi and horror writer Richard Matheson (I Am Legend, The Martian Chronicles), with a script adapted by Matheson himself, and directed by Fifties sci-fi king Jack Arnold (Creature From The Black Lagoon), this is rightly regarded as being one of the finest science-fiction films of all time, a critically-acclaimed smash hit that currently has a 90 per cent score on Rotten Tomatoes. Genuinely thrilling, and, as Scott’s plight becomes more desperate, tense and gruelling, the film features superbly realised special effects that bely the era, and the setting Scott finds himself in – filled with oversized household objects that suddenly become threatening and dangerous – takes on a wonderfully surreal atmosphere.

As announced on their Facebook page, Kino Lorber will release Trilogy of Terror on Blu-ray (and DVD) sometime in early 2018 (according to Blu-ray.com) with a brand-new HD master.
Directed by Dan Curtis, the anthology film features segments based on stories by horror master Richard Matheson, including one featuring a Zuni Warrior Festish Doll that attacks Karen Black and has certainly crossed over into more than a few nightmares over the years.
There's no word yet on the special features, cover art, or specific release date for the new Blu-ray, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed. In the meantime,

Heyman stated “I think the pleasure of these Fantastic Beasts films is that they’ll work on their own terms. You don’t need to know Harry Potter to enjoy them, but if you do, you have another layer, another level to enjoy. I’m very excited as more nuggets drop and audiences respond. Fans will be incredibly excited. This next film is different to the first, but each film will march to its own beat and have its own tone. I don’t yet know if the series will get darker, although all of them will be fun and entertaining.”

Five Things You Didn’t Know About Caitlin McHugh
You were born in Cannes so you grew up with film all around? When did you know for sure you wanted to direct?
I think it’s always been there. As a child, I used to steal my dad’s VHS camera to make mini-movies. They were basically all about my Jurassic Park toys eating my dog or invading the garden. Later, I did more elaborate short films with friends, instead of studying. Then, I remember watching Braveheart and the making of the movie. For the first time, I knew that directing was something I wanted to do for a living.

Josh Boone promised yesterday that the New Mutants teaser trailer would debut at 12:01 a.m. and it was delivered as promised.

Government scientist Robert Neville struggles to survive in a world where much of humanity has either been wiped out by biological warfare or they have been transformed into nocturnal creatures hell-bent on having him killed, with Neville possibly being the last normal human left on the planet.
In 1954, Richard Matheson published his novel I Am Legend, a chilling work about the last surviving human in a world overrun with vampires. It’s an influential novel that has left a long legacy, with it helping to inspire the modern zombie genre, with the late zombie king George A. Romero citing the book as an influence on his debut film Night of the Living Dead.
The novel itself has been adapted to film several times with various degrees of success, most recently in 2007 with
A remake sounds like the safest bet there is; isn’t original, untested IP the thing that studios fear most? However, in this market a true remake is what passes for a gamble. They’ve become a box-office rarity.
While none of this year’s top-grossing films are originals, there are very few genuine remakes. Yes, the year’s biggest movie, “Beauty and the Beast,” is a direct remake of the 1991 classic — but it went from animated to live action. (It was not a remake of the multiple live-action films and TV shows that preceded it, which stretch
Indeed, It actor Bill Skarsgard has gone on record in the past to differentiate Stephen King’s shape-shifting abomination from the Clown Prince of Crime, but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated fan from compiling a tribute video that pits Pennywise against DC’s cackling villain.
First spotted by the folks at ComicBook.com, YouTube user Mightyraccoon!, who knows a thing or two about brilliantly executed crossovers, has created a world in which the Joker from Rocksteady’s beloved Arkham series confronts Pennywise, and essentially presents a challenge to King’s otherworldly entity. If nothing else, it’s a neat piece of fan service, one that piggybacks on the incredible, record-breaking success of New Line and Andy Muschietti’s It reboot.
As of this writing, It and The Exorcist are currently neck-and-neck on the box office charts with around $230 million apiece – domestically,
