Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis Become Cannibals to Survive in ‘Yellowjackets’
Showtime has a show that sounds very compelling on the way titled, Yellowjackets. The series stars the very awesome Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis. The plot focuses on a soccer team that has to survive after a plane crash doing whatever it takes and sort of going Lord of the Flies in the process. It later focuses on what the survivors have to live with and to keep secret in order to live a normal life. The result is a genre-bending series that is equal parts psychological horror and coming of age story… but with cannibalism.
The synopsis for Showtime’s Yellowjackets goes like this:
A team of wildly talented high school girls soccer players who become the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the Ontario wilderness. The series will chronicle their descent from a complicated but thriving team to warring, cannibalistic clans, while also tracking the lives they’ve attempted to piece back together nearly 25 years later, proving that the past is never really past and what began out in the wilderness is far from over.
This series sounds fantastic and the short teaser that we get of the two facing off gives us the vibe that Ricci will play the villain and Lewis is the protagonist that has had to live with the crazy shit that was forced upon them to survive.
The series also stars Melanie Lynskey, Tawny Cypress, Ella Purnell, Sammi Hanratty, Sophie Thatcher, Sophie Nelisse, and Jasmin Savoy Brown. The pilot episode is directed by Karyn Kusama (The Invitation, Destroyer)

Yellowjackets premieres on Showtime beginning Nov. 14.
‘Fear the Invisible Man’ Trailer Reveals the Character’s Sinister Plans
Fear the Invisible Man takes us back to the H.G. Wells classic and takes a few liberties along the way by adding some twists, turns, and of course more bloodshed. Of course, Universal Monsters also incorporated Well’s character into their lineup of creatures. And in some ways I believe the original Invisible Man film to be the most monstrous character among Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman, etc…
While Frankenstein and the Wolfman might come off as the tortured victim of someone else’s doing, The Invisible Man did it to himself and became obsessed with results and immediately found ways to use his condition to break the law and to ultimately murder.
The synopsis for Fear the Invisible Man goes like this:
Based on the classic novel by H.G. Wells, a young British widow shelters an old medical school colleague, a man who has somehow turned himself invisible. As his isolation grows and his sanity frays, he schemes to create a reign of wanton murder and terror across the city.
Fear the Invisible Man stars David Hayman (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), Mark Arnold (Teen Wolf), Mhairi Calvey (Braveheart), Mike Beckingham (Truth Seekers). The film is directed by Paul Dudbridge and Written By Phillip Daay.
The film arrives on DVD, digital and VOD beginning June 13.
‘The Wrath Of Becky’ – Interview With Lulu Wilson
Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Terror & Annabelle Creation) returns to the role of Becky in the sequel due out on theaters May 26, 2023, The Wrath of Becky. The Wrath of Becky is just as good as its predecessor, and Becky brings lots of pain and suffering as she faces off against the worst of the worst! One lesson we learned in the first film was that no one should mess with the inner rage of a teenage girl! This film is off-the-wall bonkers, and Lulu Wilson does not disappoint!
Originally from New York City, Wilson made her film debut in Jerry Bruckheimer’s dark thriller Deliver Us From Evil opposite Eric Bana and Olivia Munn. Shortly after, Wilson moved to Los Angeles to work as a series regular on the CBS hit comedy The Millers for two seasons.
Chatting with this young and upcoming talent who has embedded her footprint within the horror genre over the past several years was fantastic. We discuss the evolution of her character from the original film to the second film, what it was like working with all of the BLOOD, and, of course, what it was like working with Seann William Scott.
“As a teenage girl myself, I find that I go from cold to hot in like two seconds, so it wasn’t super difficult to tap into that…” – Lulu Wilson, Becky.
Relax, and enjoy our interview with Lulu Wilson from her new film, The Wrath of Becky.
Two years after she escaped a violent attack on her family, Becky attempts to rebuild her life in the care of an older woman – a kindred spirit named Elena. But when a group known as the “Noble Men” break into their home, attack them, and take her beloved dog, Diego, Becky must return to her old ways to protect herself and her loved ones.

‘Cinderella’s Curse’: A Blood-Soaked Retelling of the Classic Fairytale
Imagine Cinderella, the story that children have all come to adore thanks to Disney, but with a twist so dark, it could only belong to the horror genre.
Children’s stories have frequently been fodder for horrifying reinventions with movies like Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey and The Mean One. Now, it’s Cinderella’s turn to step into this terrifying limelight.
Bloody Disgusting exclusively reveals that Cinderella is undergoing a transformation far removed from the family friendly kind we’re accustomed to. She’ll be crossing genres in Cinderella’s Curse, an upcoming horror film.
Slated to be available for sale at the American Film Market (AFM), Cinderella’s Curse is the latest offering from ChampDog Films. Thanks to the Bloody Disgusting exclusive, we’ve learned that ITN Studios is primed to unleash this chilling interpretation come October 2023.
Production is gearing up, with filming scheduled to begin next month in the UK. Louisa Warren, a name that’s no stranger to the horror genre, will be donning the dual hats of producer and director. The screenplay is the brainchild of Harry Boxley, who penned the script for Mary Had A Little Lamb. Kelly Rian Sanson, Chrissie Wunna, and Danielle Scott are set to bring the characters to life on the screen.
Warren shared her excitement for this novel take on a familiar tale, stating that it’s an incredibly unique spin on the Cinderella we’ve all grown up with. Promising a series of “truly horrific deaths by her hands,” she assures fans of gore-filled narratives that they’re in for a treat with this dark retelling.
Currently, there aren’t any official visuals available. The images used in this piece, including the featured image at the top, are fan interpretations imagining a horror-themed Cinderella. Stay tuned for updates as official images start to emerge.
