For those that have been keeping up with the Hatchet movies, the end of 2010 sequel Hatchet II seemed to reveal that Marybeth (Danielle Harris) had finally brought an end to the deformed, swamp-dwelling murderer Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) through various uses of destruction. However, as with all good horror franchises, it's hard to keep a good killer down, and so it looks like Crowley has somehow returned and Marybeth still has her worked cut out for her in Hatchet III. watch the trailer >> Posted 03.23.13 by Ryan
When George Romero directed his 1968 horror classic, Night of the Living Dead, Romero didn't think he would be starting a "zombie" craze that would last for decades. In fact, Romero didn't think of his undead creatures as zombies at all, initially titling his debut work as Night of the Flesh-Eaters, When the title card to the movie was changed, the copyright symbol was not included, placing Romero's seminal work into the public domain and the source for several remakes.
Romero collaborator and special make-up effects artist Tom Savini made a respectable remake in 1990, while an unrespectable 3-D remake followed in 2006. A variety of animators combined to make Night of the Living Dead Reanimated in 2009, leaving comic book graphic artist turned movie director Zebediah de Soto to bring the latest remake, a 3-D, CGI-animated Night of the Living Dead: Origins. De Soto has described the movie as "American-style anime" that will be "an homage" to Romero's original. Origins will move the action to New York City, which de Soto explained was done so there could be "a larger body count" but also so that he could make "an epic zombie movie." So, what are the origins? >> Posted 08.23.10 by Ryan
According to Shocktillyoudrop.com, Danielle Harris (Halloween II) has been cast in Night of the Living Dead: Origins, an expansion of George A. Romero's 1968 landmark horror movie. Harris left a message on her Twitter feed announcing she had landed one of the principle female roles.
The new movie, due in 2011, will apparently be a 3-D version that expands upon the original characters. Zebediah de Soto, who co-wrote the script and will be in the director's chair, is calling it "an American-style anime."
Okay, we're not sure what that means. We're also not sure why Romero's classic needs yet another remake, especially by someone with no features to his credit. But we'll just have to wait and see what the final product is like. Posted 09.28.09 by reelz
