Earlier this year, it was reported that Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci were going to reboot the Universal films into a shared universe, just like the old Universal Monster movies. Well, a few months ago, Kurtzman and Orci had a creative split. The two long time collaborators when in different directions. Orci is directing Star Trek 3 and Kurtzman is writing half the franchise film under the sun. Well, there’s […]
Remember Sharknado? Remember? No? Ok, we’ll catch you up. Sharknado was a minor blip on the pop culture radar around comic con last year. The outlandish title coupled with stunt casting and a heaping portion of internet chatter propelled the shark-sploitation film to higher heights than Asylum could have ever hoped for. Now, only one year later, Asylum is about to release an aptly titled sequel. Sharknado 2: The Second […]
Scott Derrickson’s new film Deliver Us has been gaining buzz and industry acclaim even before it opens. The film looks to be an interesting take on the slightly tired exorcism genre. The idea of combining the gritty real life cop side of things with a more horror driven exorcism story is very interesting. And the fact that it’s based on real accounts of a police officer only prove to drive […]
David Cronenberg, the visionary director behind such films as Scanners, Videodrome and The Fly, has just released a new short film titled The Nest. The short film is a slightly more subjective take on the Body Horror genre that Cronenberg helped to create. The film is a slowly plodding 9:18. The film feels like a stripped back, streamlined entry into Cronenberg’s oeuvre. The Nest could almost be described too barebones or […]
The sequel to the soft reboot of the Planet of the Apes franchise is coming to a theatre near you. Dawn aims to be one thing, epic. It’s attempting to turn up the drama and gravitas. And from the look of the trailer, succeeding. The initial entry into the newly re-started franchise, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, was a refreshingly stripped back, bare bone narrative that kept large […]
Jerry Bruckheimer is branching out. He’s produced a horror movie starring Eric Bana and the film doesn’t looks half bad. The film looks like an interesting intersection of police procedural and other worldly spiritual possession. This is an interesting deviation for both Bruckheimer and Bana. We’ll see how it pans out for them. But in the mean time, check out the newest, and pretty creepy, trailer.
Phantasm V lives! That’s right, just days after the announcement that the film would be made, we find out that it has in fact already been shot! and what’s more footage from it has been debuted online! That’s right! Mike, Reggie, Tall Man and the rest of the gang are all going to show up for one final go-around. Hopefully, we’ll finally get the conclusion that we’ve always wanted! I’m […]
Stop what you’re doing. You’re about to hear the most important movie news you’ll hear all day, maybe all week. Phantasm V is in production. It’s coming. And the subtitle is Ravager. Not only that but a teaser poster has been unveiled. The information surrounding the film is currently pretty slim. We know that Angus Scrimm aka The Tall Man will be reprising his role, presumably for the last time. […]
Ti West, the director of House of the Devil, is about to release his next film starring AJ Bowen and many familiar faces in the Mumblegore crew. Los Angeles is blessed with many filmmakers. But few filmmakers are quite as interesting as Ti West and AJ Bowen. I, for one, am extremely excited to see what they have in store for the rest of us. The Sacrament looks both harrowing […]
Anthony Perkins never quite escaped the role of Norman Bates. His most iconic performance spawned a whole franchise of Psycho films. With Bates Motel airing on tv a rare find has surfaced on the inter webs. A promotional spot for Psycho 4: The Begining where Perkins, in character as Bates, shills for Oatmeal Crisp.
Bruce Campbell is one of the most successful B-movie actors of all time. With films like Maniac Cop, Bubba Ho-Tep, Escape from Los Angeles, Evil Dead, and The Army of Darkness, he’s cemented himself as one of Hollywood’s most famous not-quite-stars. There are some pretty infamous stories about Campbell auditioning and narrowly missing getting some pretty iconic roles like Agent Dogget in the X-Files. Well, now you can see a […]
Interesting news is popping up about the newly slated second attempt at rebooting the Friday the 13th franchise. We were previously hearing that the re-reboot might be a found footage film. This seemed like an obvious direction to take the franchise. Most of us here at Film Is My Oxygen were really excited about the prospect of a found footage Jason movie. Well, the reboot might not feature Jason at […]
Paramount has just picked up the rights to the Friday the 13th franchise. Well, not just. They got them from Warner Brothers in exchange for the right to work on the next Christopher Nolan film Interstellar. Paramount is planning to issue a rebooted Friday film on March 13th, 2015. Reportedly, the film will be a found footage narrative. Is that a good thing? Bat thing? Or just another chapter in […]
Phantasm is a cult icon. With the original film and the three subsequent sequels all being directed by the storytelling master Don Coscarelli, The Tall Man has become a cult icon in the vein of Freddy, Jason, and Michael. Don Coscarelli is an intensely interesting filmmaker. To say that he’s prolific, wouldn’t be exactly true. The man usually takes eight to ten years between films, which can be maddening if […]
Millenium Films, which conveniently had a hand in producing the previous remake of Romero’s classic Day of the Dead, is preparing to produce a remake of the third film in George Romeo’s epic zombie trilogy. Millennium has tapped Mark Tonderai to direct the completely necessary remake. The question is: will Millennium be remaking their previous remake? Or will the actually be remaking the Romero film? It’s like a chicken and […]
