‘House’ and ‘Friday the 13th’ Are Receiving Reboots From Sean Cunningham

Published

on

House

Rejoice, y’all. The red tape and lawsuit crap that stood in the way of fans receiving more Friday the 13th is now gone. The case between producer and director, Sean S. Cunningham and screenwriter Victor Miller came to an end recently. It gave Miller the rights to the first film and all of its characters and elements. This lead to the news that Miller is overseeing a prequel titled Crystal Lake with Bryan Fuller (Hannibal). Cunningham also got rewarded Friday the 13th goodies and is able to jump back into the F13 action as well. This also includes the rights to his classic haunted house film, House.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Cunningham is now in the works to bring back both Friday the 13th and House in the form of a theatrical reboot. We are really excited to hear that Cunningham is going to head back to Jason Voorhees’ arms, but we are almost more excited to hear that House is making a comeback.

According to Cunningham, the House reboot is “both an update and reimagining of the classic series, centering around the birth of a haunted house. Lots of great scares and howl-at-the-screen laughs, plus we’re bringing back a few of your favorite monsters from the original for some really fun but equally terrifying kills.”

In addition to returning to those reboots, Cunningham, and director Jeremy Weiss will bring a new and original film to audiences called Night Driver.

House

Night Driver follows “an everyday salesman who regularly drives across the country selling pharmaceuticals. One night on a backroad he encounters a madman who seems to be following him, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. All he wants to do is make it home alive to his family at any cost; and by the time it’s over, he realizes that he’s either escaped the terror or it’s followed him home.”

We are hoping that both the House and F13 reboots become a reality following Night Driver. So far both films are just big plans with no official production in the works at the moment. But don’t worry about that, y’all. We are definitely going to receive Miller and Fuller’s prequel series Crystal Lake.

‘Children of the Corn’ Adaptation Headed to Theaters and Shudder

Published

on

It’s been almost 40 years since Linda Hamilton and Peter Horton got into it with “He who walks behind the rows,” in Fritz Kiersch’s Children of the Corn, based on a story by Stephen King.

Today, Deadline reports that director Kurt Wimmer’s film will finally get a theatrical release on March 3, with a Shudder streaming release on March 21. But don’t get too excited, because this isn’t a remake or even a reboot. Wimmer has said this version has “almost nothing to do” with King’s original short story or the ’84 movie.

“We went back to the story and free-associated from there,” the director told Variety.

You may also notice the dateline for production is 2020. It was big news at the time that Wimmer was going to shoot his movie in Australia during the height of the COVID pandemic. Through safety protocols including social distancing, they managed to get through it.

Producer Lucas Foster said at the time, “You can theorize all you like about safety protocols, but until you get on set, you don’t really know. But I can now tell you it is impossible to keep a camera crew 1.5 meters apart.”

This updated take on King’s short story doesn’t appear to involve a married couple on a road trip at all. Instead, it is an origin story about how all the adults in the small town met their murderous ends.

Children of the Corn follows a 12 year old girl in Nebraska who is possessed by a spirit in a dying cornfield. She recruits the other children in her small town to go on a bloody rampage and kill all the adults and anyone else who opposes her. A bright high schooler who won’t go along with the plan is the town’s only hope of survival.” — Deadline

Make sure to keep checking back to iHorror for the trailer once it drops. And let us know whether you like the concept of moving away from the original story, or if you would have liked it to follow King’s short story more closely.

Published

M3GAN

Allison Williams star of the breakout hit, M3GAN. The film has brought in a huge and unexpected amounts of money and continues to climb. Right now it is sitting at $125 million and counting. In order to welcome Williams, Barrymore got in full M3GAN gear and served up some dance moves, and acted out other qualities the doll brings to her home.

Barrymore hilariously begins to have technical difficulties with her contact lenses leading to a moment that rivals the contact lens malfunction in Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and that is saying a lot.

The synopsis for M3GAN goes like this:

“M3GAN is a marvel of artificial intelligence, a lifelike doll that’s programmed to be a child’s greatest companion and a parent’s greatest ally. Designed by Gemma, a brilliant roboticist, M3GAN can listen, watch and learn as it plays the role of friend and teacher, playmate and protector. When Gemma becomes the unexpected caretaker of her 8-year-old niece, she decides to give the girl an M3GAN prototype, a decision that leads to unimaginable consequences.

M3GAN is now playing in theaters everywhere.
