“Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” to Revisit Iconic “Day-O” Scene, Confirms Catherine O’Hara

Catherine O’Hara has confirmed that the sequel will revisit one of the original film’s most iconic scenes. Speaking on the “Let’s Talk Off Camera” podcast with Kelly Ripa, O’Hara, who will reprise her role as Delia Deetz, revealed that the Harry Belafonte song “Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)” will make a comeback in “Beetlejuice Beetlejuice”. The song was central to one of the first film’s most memorable moments, though O’Hara stopped short of detailing how it would be incorporated into the new storyline.

The sequel, once again under the direction of Tim Burton, promises to bring back the eerie, whimsical charm that made the original a beloved fixture in the fantasy-comedy genre. Alongside O’Hara, Michael Keaton will return as the titular character, with Winona Ryder also reprising her role. New faces joining the cast include Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, and Justin Theroux, adding fresh dynamics to the well-loved ensemble.

Michael Keaton shared his excitement about returning to his role, hinting at unexpected twists and a deeper exploration of Beetlejuice’s backstory. “The great thing about playing Beetlejuice is, that clichéd thing, you never make the statement, ‘Well, my character wouldn’t do that.’ He’d do anything, which was so tremendous to play,” Keaton remarked during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” He teased that director Tim Burton has introduced a surprising new layer to his character that fans will find intriguing.

“Beetlejuice Beetlejuice” is penned by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, with a story by Seth Grahame-Smith. The film is slated for a theatrical release on September 6, 2024, and is eagerly anticipated by fans eager to see how the new installment will pay homage to the original while charting its own unique course.

Cannabis-Themed Horror Movie ‘Trim Season’ Official Trailer

Published

on

With tomorrow being 4/20, it’s a great time to check out this trailer for the weed-based horror film Trim Season.

It looks like a hybrid of Heredity and Midsommar. But its official description is, “a suspenseful, witchy, weed-themed horror movie, Trim Season is like if someone took the ‘nightmare blunt rotation’ meme and turned it into a horror film. ”

According to IMDb the film reunites several actors: Alex Essoe worked with Marc Senter twice before. On Starry Eyes in 2014 and Tales Of Halloween in 2015. Jane Badler previously worked with Marc Senter on 2021’s The Free Fall.

Trim Season (2024)

Directed by award-winning filmmaker and production designer Ariel Vida, Trim Season stars Bethlehem Million (Sick, “And Just Like That…”) as Emma, an adrift, jobless, 20-something seeking purpose.

Along with a group of young people from Los Angeles, she drives up the coast to make quick cash trimming marijuana on a secluded farm in Northern California. Cut off from the rest of the world, they soon realize that Mona (Jane Badler) – the seemingly amiable owner of the estate – is harboring secrets darker than any of them could imagine. It becomes a race against time for Emma and her friends to escape the dense woods with their lives.

Trim Season will open in theaters and on demand from Blue Harbor Entertainment on June 7, 2024.

Another Creepy Spider Movie Hits Shudder This Month

Published

on

Good spider films are a theme this year. First, we had Sting and then there was Infested. The former is still in theaters and the latter is coming to Shudder starting April 26.

Infested has been getting some good reviews. People are saying that it’s not only a great creature feature but also a social commentary on racism in France.

According to IMDb: Writer/director Sébastien Vanicek was looking for ideas around the discrimination faced by black and Arab-looking people in France, and that led him to spiders, which are rarely welcome in homes; whenever they’re spotted, they’re swatted. As everyone in the story (people and spiders) is treated like vermin by society, the title came to him naturally.

Shudder has become the gold standard for streaming horror content. Since 2016, the service has been offering fans an expansive library of genre movies. in 2017, they began to stream exclusive content.

Since then Shudder has become a powerhouse in the film festival circuit, buying distribution rights to movies, or just producing some of their own. Just like Netflix, they give a film a short theatrical run before adding it to their library exclusively for subscribers.

Late Night With the Devil is a great example. It was released theatrically on March 22 and will begin streaming on the platform starting April 19.

While not getting the same buzz as Late Night, Infested is a festival favorite and many have said if you suffer from arachnophobia, you might want to take heed before watching it.

Infested

According to the synopsis, our main character, Kalib is turning 30 and dealing with some family issues. “He’s fighting with his sister over an inheritance and has cut ties with his best friend. Fascinated by exotic animals, he finds a venomous spider in a shop and brings it back to his apartment. It only takes a moment for the spider to escape and reproduce, turning the whole building into a dreadful web trap. The only option for Kaleb and his friends is to find a way out and survive.”

The film will be available to watch on Shudder starting April 26.

Part Concert, Part Horror Movie M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Trap’ Trailer Released

Published

on

In true Shyamalan form, he sets his film Trap inside a social situation where we aren’t sure what is going on. Hopefully, there is a twist at the end. Furthermore, we hope it’s better than the one in his divisive 2021 movie Old.

The trailer seemingly gives away a lot, but, as in the past, you can’t rely on his trailers because they are often red herrings and you are being gaslit to think a certain way. For instance, his movie Knock at the Cabin was completely different than what the trailer implied and if you hadn’t read the book on which the film is based it was still like going in blind.

The plot for Trap is being dubbed an “experience” and we aren’t quite sure what that means. If we were to guess based on the trailer, it’s a concert movie wrapped around a horror mystery. There are original songs performed by Saleka, who plays Lady Raven, a kind of Taylor Swift/Lady Gaga hybrid. They have even set up a Lady Raven website to further the illusion.

Here is the fresh trailer:

According to the synopsis, a father takes his daughter to one of Lady Raven’s jam-packed concerts, “where they realize they’re at the center of a dark and sinister event.”

Written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, Trap stars Josh Hartnett, Ariel Donoghue, Saleka Shyamalan, Hayley Mills and Allison Pill. The film is produced by Ashwin Rajan, Marc Bienstock and M. Night Shyamalan. The executive producer is Steven Schneider.
