Great White Shark Movie ‘The Last Breath’ Shares First Image

Published

on

It’s not even done yet and horror publications are already buzzing about the shark movie The Last Breath. Deadline reports that the film is in pre-production, but they managed to share an image of the film.

Director Joachim Hedén is no stranger to underwater thrillers. His 2021 movie Breaking Surface took place beneath the ocean as a woman tries to save her sister. Hedén is also a cinematographer so expect to see some striking visuals in his great white shark film. The movie is currently filming in Belgium.

Sharks have risen to the surface this past year. Although some are good and some are not-so-good, the original, Jaws, has people not afraid to back into the theater. The 47-year-old Spielberg film was re-released over the Labor Day weekend and sits at number five for overall domestic gross over the holiday.

There arguably hasn’t been a good shark movie since 2016’s The Shallows so we are hoping The Last Breath can breathe new life into the sea monster genre.

Plot of The Last Breath:

A group of old college friends reunite on a Caribbean scuba diving trip exploring the wreckage of a WWII battleship and find themselves trapped inside the underwater labyrinth of rusted metal surrounded by great white sharks

‘Scream’ Vibes Prevail In Kevin Willamson Co-Penned Story ‘Sick’ Movie Clip

Published

on

Kevin Williamson hasn’t been too busy over the last few years. But it appears his ideas have. The new movie Sick which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was inspired by one of the stories he wrote.

Of course we know the Williamson brand. It was everywhere in 90’s horror. That slick storytelling mostly featured cat-and-mouse situations around final girls and unyielding slashers.

It looks like that sensation is back if we take anything away from the exclusive clip Collider proved today. According to the logline we are two getting young women holed up in a lake house during the pandemic. They think they’re alone, but it’s clear someone is out to get them.

Director John Hyams is behind the camera, and it seems he is sticking to that Craven/Williamson aesthetic where the camera moves seamlessly through the scene to focus on an object, dark colors are glossy and landscapes are uplit.

Sick is scheduled to release in Canada on Sept. 11, but that’s according to IMDb. As for the rest of the world, we’ll have to wait and see when it hits theaters.

Justin Long’s Great Horror Career Even Before ‘Barbarian’

Published

on

Justin Long’s new movie Barbarian is creating quite the buzz, but this isn’t his first time at the horror movie rodeo. Long was originally supposed to replace Steve on the kid’s show Blue’s Clues back in 2002. That’s how non-threatening the actor’s face is. Through the years, Long has used that to his advantage in horror movies. He is so innocent looking that putting him in horrific situations makes perfect sense because he appears so boyish and likable.

We have gathered some of the 44-year-old’s best horror movie performances just in case you want to explore some of his earlier work before Barbarian.

Jeepers Creepers and Jeepers Creepers 2 (2001 & 2003)

Whatever you may think of this troubled franchise, in the beginning, Jeepers Creepers was a huge hit. The horror movie industry was craving a new movie monster and The Creeper answered that ten-fold. Long plays the handsome Darry who is driving across the country in a classic car along with his sister. They encounter a strange van on the highway and just when you think this going to be another Hitcher long-form chase film, it makes a horrifying left turn.

Drag Me to Hell (2009)

Sam Raimi must have noticed and liked Long’s performance in earlier films because he cast him as Clay Dalton, a frustrated young man whose girlfriend is being stalked by a vengeful witch. In true Raimi style, Drag Me to Hell is full of over-the-top visuals and terrifying special effects. Again, the wholesome Long is thrust into this world making him the perfect contrast to a supernatural powerhouse.

Tusk (2014)

Another prolific director, Kevin Smith, chose Long to star in his off-beat horror film Tusk. This weird shift for Smith is both comical and disturbing. Long plays an opinionated podcaster who goes to Canada to conduct an interview. What he doesn’t know is that the person he is interviewing has a plan to turn him into a walrus using human skin. No kidding.

Ghost Team (2016)

Although not a total disaster, Ghost Team is an amicable distraction. As the title implies this comedy/thriller follows a team of friends who want to investigate a reportedly haunted farm. What they find is more than they bargained for. Long plays a security guard who joins the team and may or may not survive the night.

House of Darkness (2016)

As meet-cutes go, this one is sinister. Long is a man who just wants to hook up with a beautiful woman. As things seem to be going in his favor, his date begins to act strangely. This is a reimagining based on a Bram Stoker novel. Although they don’t say which one in the trailer, you can probably guess without looking on IMDb.

Barbarian (2022)

Here’s one that has everyone talking this year. Many have suggested you stay away from the trailer just to give you an added layer of blindness. Some critics have said that the movie is not what you’re expecting, but it’s even better than you would hope. Zac Efron was supposed to play Long’s role originally, but thank goodness he turned it down because this one is already a classic.

Whether you consider Justin Long an A-list celebrity or an indie prince, his line-up of films is very impressive. As we start seeing him re-visit his horror origins in current films, let’s hope he keeps it up and gives us even more thrills. His latest movie Dear David is in post-production and tells the true story of a journalist haunted by a bean-headed child in his small apartment.

Kevin Bacon Says “Never Say Never” To Playing Krueger in a Reboot

Kevin Bacon and Freddy Krueger

Actor Robert Englund wants to pass the torch of his role as Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street to Kevin Bacon. Englund, 75, said in a recent interview with Cinema Blend that Bacon’s name has been thrown around as a possible successor in a reboot of the franchise:

“Well the gossip I’ve heard, and I don’t know how valid this is, but there has been some talk about using, or perhaps he’s been approached, Kevin Bacon. Yeah. I think that would be great. He’s in one of my favorite little horror movies, Stir of Echoes, and you should check it out if you haven’t seen in. And I just think Kevin’s the right size. I think he respects horror movies. He doesn’t make fun of them. I think it would be real interesting.”

Although Bacon owes much of his mainstream career to horror movies, the 64-year-old actor Oscar-nominated actor didn’t make them his long-term forte. He just recently revisited the genre with 2022’s They/Them, and although his performance was well received, the movie as a whole got tepid reviews.

But in a Screen Rant interview, Bacon’s response to Englund’s pitch, is surprisingly encouraging:

Never say never. I mean, I say, ‘Never say never,’ but I really do follow that. There’s very few things that I go, ‘Nah, nah.’ You just never know.

Robert Englund has been playing the evil Krueger for over 38 years. in 2010 Jackie Earle Haley attempted to take on the character in a poorly received reboot. Fans weren’t kind to the refresher which just goes to show you how important Krueger is to the horror movie crowd.

What began as a low-budget slasher in 1984, A Nightmare on Elm Street became a phenomenon spawning six sequels in just 10 years and a one-off fantasy crossover: Freddy vs. Jason.

Englund portrayed the villainous dreamworld serial killer in every film spanning a decade. He also suited up for the 1988 anthology TV series.

Just before the pandemic, it was announced that the rights to A Nightmare on Elm Street were in the hands of the late Wes Craven’s estate. It didn’t take long for Hollywood execs to realize the potential of the property and they started making pitches. Not only were they looking forward to making a feature film, but HBO Max also wanted to make a series.

Whether or not Bacon has been approached about starring in any of those new adaptations has not been confirmed.
