Halloween 2017: “Why Horror?” Double Feature – Digging Up The Marrow and The Cabin In The Woods

  • DailyDead
[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Check here for more double feature recommendations and other Halloween 2017 coverage.]

As horror lovers, we tend to spend most of October drowning ourselves in our favorite movies (even more than the rest of the year), revisiting those titles that remind us of the season or which have become an annual tradition. Never is this more true than on Halloween night, when so many of us have our go-to titles without which the holiday wouldn’t be complete: “It’s not Halloween unless I watch The Exorcist,” or “It’s not Halloween unless I watch the remake of The Fog!” Some of you are weird.

I get it. I don’t have any hard and fast rules about what I watch every Halloween, but I always make it a point to watch something. And while I know many of you will turn to the original Halloween or Trick ’r Treat or even Night of the Demons, I want to offer an alternative

Highlights from the ‘Shaun of the Dead’ Fan Event with Edgar Wright

The ‘horror comedy’ tends to be the kiss of death for any studio or filmmaker. For some reason – there’s a belief that people just don’t want to pay and see these movies… which, to be fair, may be true (See the less-than-spectacular financial returns of Scout’s Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse or The Cabin in the Woods or Drag Me to Hell…) Even companies that make horror-comedies today are reticent to label them such: the horror-comedy Happy Death Day was marketed as ‘horror-fun’, lest anyone, even for a second, think about calling …

Idris Elba still wants to make a Dark Tower sequel

The future of Sony and Mrc’s planned Dark Tower franchise seems to be up in the air at the moment following the box office failure of this year’s Stephen King adaptation.

A potential TV series remains in development – which according to King will be a reboot – but in an interview with The Radio Times, actor Idris Elba has revealed that he’s hoping for a second big screen outing as the Gunslinger:

“I think any TV series that is an offshoot from the film can have more time to explore some themes. I’d personally prefer to do another Dark Tower film, exploring some more of the gunslinger – as a film. I don’t know much about where they are with the TV show – but I think there’s definitely talks to try and do another one.”

Given that The Dark Tower managed to gross just $111.8 million worldwide following its release in August,

Drew Goddard to write and produce Nevermoor adaptation

THR is reporting that Oscar-nominated writer Drew Goddard (The Martian) has signed on to direct the upcoming fantasy book Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow from author Jessica Townsend, which is set for publication later this year.

The official Amazon description for the book reads:

“Morrigan Crow is cursed. Having been born on Eventide, the unluckiest day for any child to be born, she’s blamed for all local misfortunes, from hailstorms to heart attacks–and, worst of all, the curse means that Morrigan is doomed to die at midnight on her eleventh birthday.

“But as Morrigan awaits her fate, a strange and remarkable man named Jupiter North appears. Chased by black-smoke hounds and shadowy hunters on horseback, he whisks her away into the safety of a secret, magical city called Nevermoor.

“It’s then that Morrigan discovers Jupiter has chosen her to contend for a place in the city

The Dark Tower TV series will be a complete reboot, says Stephen King

Sony’s big screen adaptation of The Dark Tower may have been a critical and commercial failure, but it seems that the planned TV series Wizard and Glass remains a possibility – although as author Stephen King has revealed to Vulture, should this move ahead, it will likely be a complete reboot with no ties to the feature film.

“The major challenge was to do a film based on a series of books that’s really long, about 3,000 pages,” said King. “The other part of it was the decision to do a PG-13 feature adaptation of books that are extremely violent and deal with violent behavior in a fairly graphic way. That was something that had to be overcome, although I’ve gotta say, I thought [screenwriter] Akiva Goldsman did a terrific job in taking a central part of the book and turning it into what I thought was a pretty good movie.

‘The Good Place’ Writer on Food Puns, Ted Danson Singing, and Why This Week’s Episode Was the ‘900th Obvious Thing’

‘The Good Place’ Writer on Food Puns, Ted Danson Singing, and Why This Week’s Episode Was the ‘900th Obvious Thing’
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Good Place” Season 2, Episode 3, “Dance Dance Resolution.”]

When you’re a writer on “The Good Place” like Megan Amram, sometimes you have the chance to ponder the true nature of existence and humanity’s obligation to each other. There’s careful thought about the rules of this very specific, constantly shifting form of the afterlife.

Some days, you spend your time figuring out which numbers make people laugh.

“I’m sure this is like every comedy show, but there’s this feeling that certain numbers are just funnier than other ones, and I don’t mean because they’re like 420 or 69, numbers that are inherently funny. There’s just a feeling that 802 is a really funny number,” Amram explained in a recent interview with IndieWire. “I’m always like, ‘What is my job? I’m being paid to think about which number’s the funniest.’ So thank you, NBC.”

Stephen King explains what went wrong with The Dark Tower

Author Stephen King has explained why he feels The Dark Tower wasn’t a success.

The Dark Tower wasn’t a total disaster but it didn’t blow any doors off either, and it failed to excite audiences in the same way King’s book series had done in the past.

Putting out his own theories on why the film didn’t come together as well as it could have, King told Vulture during a recent interview that the movie’s age rating was a contributing factor.

“The major challenge was to do a film based on a series of books that’s really long, about 3,000 pages. The other part of it was the decision to do a PG-13 feature adaptation of books that are extremely violent and deal with violent behavior in a fairly graphic way.

NYC Weekend Watch: Samuel Fuller, ‘Goodbye to Language,’ Kelly Reichardt & More

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm.

Liam Hemsworth Almost Stole Thor from Brother Chris Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth Almost Stole Thor from Brother Chris Hemsworth
For every movie role, small or large, there are hundreds, if not thousands of actors vying for each part, but when it comes to Marvel's Thor franchise, it seems the studio almost cast one Hemsworth brother over the one who landed the role. Which means this November's Thor: Ragnarok almost looked a lot different. Chris Hemsworth, whose brothers Liam Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth are also actors, revealed in an interview that, before he landed the role of the mighty Asgardian, his younger brother Liam Hemsworth was very, very close to winning the role, before Chris even got a callback.

Before Thor had come out, Chris Hemsworth was best known to American audiences as George Kirk, the father of James Tiberius Kirk in the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek, but Australian fans knew him from his role as Kim Hyde on the long-running Aussie soap opera Home & Away. Chris Hemsworth recently spoke with W Magazine,

Twilight Star Kellan Lutz Thinks a Reboot Is a Bad Idea
It's been almost five years since The Twilight Saga came to an end with Breaking Dawn - Part 2, and there have been plenty of rumors swirling about the franchise eventually returning to the big screen, but one star doesn't think it should happen. Kellan Lutz, who played Emmet Cullen in all five Twilight Saga movies, revealed in a recent interview that he doesn't think a reboot would make sense in this day and age. Here's what the actor had to say below.

"If Twilight was made in the 1980s or '90s, and then now we have all of the special effects, then yeah, cool, reboot it. But I don't really feel like... I mean, we had great special effects in that movie. Especially Breaking Dawn with Bill Condon. The movies look beautiful and they aren't these action-packed movies or these massive worlds like Marvel where you could reboot it
