Jordan Peele’s Nope is on its way to theaters later this week. In addition, Peele is starring in a stop-animated film called Wendell and Wild. The animated series has been directed by Henry Selick and the team that brought us A Nightmare Before Christmas, Coraline and more. Even with all that, Peele has started working on the beginnings of his new film. He briefly touched on the next film’s new idea.
“A little bit of horror, a little bit of comedy; I’m always going to try and give you a big show.” Peele said about his next film. “I will stay within this realm that I love which is, I think, the only way I know how to view the world and how to tell
stories at this point.”
So, we can expect something that Peele has become known for. Something that has his powerful voice and sensibilities while also creating something fun. From Get Out to Nope all three of his films have involved that same voice and same passionate scares.
The synopsis for Nope goes like this:
Caretakers at a California horse ranch encounter a mysterious force that affects human and animal behavior.
As with Get Out and Us, Nope appears to be keeping its narrative very close to its belt. We vaguely know that it will be about aliens, but the larger story has been kept very close to the belt. We think that even with the amount of story that we have in tow, we still only know 20 percent of Nope.
‘Slash/Back’ Trailer is Filled With Kids Fighting Lovecraftian Body Horrors
‘Slash/Back’ is giving us a very The Thing-aligned sort of plot with one major exception… this film is about a group of young girls instead of a bunch of grumpy dudes. Slash/Back also features some very Lovecraftian bits compounded by the use of some intense-looking body horror. All-in-all, there is nothing to not absolutely dig about this trailer.
A small town becomes the target of a monster invasion and it’s up to a group of kiddos to go on the warpath against all of them.
The synopsis for Slash/Back is as follows:
Set in Pangnirtung, Nunavut, a sleepy hamlet nestled in the majestic mountains of Baffin Island in the Arctic Ocean, SLASH/BACK opens as the village wakes up to a typical summer day. No School, no cool boys (well… except one), and 24-hour sunlight. But for Maika and her ragtag friends, the usual summer is suddenly not in the cards when they discover an alien invasion threatening their hometown. These teenagers have been underestimated their whole lives but, using makeshift weapons and their horror movie knowledge, they show the aliens you don’t f*** with the girls from Pang.
The film stars Tasiana Shirley, Alexis Vincent-Wolfe, Nalajoss Ellsworth and Chelsea Prusky.
Slash/Back is in theaters, On Demand and on digital beginning October 21.
‘Holy Spider’ Trailer Explores True Events Surrounding Brutal Serial Killer

The synopsis for Holy Spider goes like this:
Female journalist Rahimi (Zar Amir Ebrahimi) travels to the Iranian holy city of Mashhad to investigate a serial killer who believes he is doing the work of God, cleansing the streets of sinners by murdering sex workers. As the body count mounts and Rahimi draws closer to exposing his crimes, the opportunity for justice grows harder to attain as the ‘Spider Killer’ is embraced by many as a hero. Based on the horrific true story of serial killer Saeed Hanaei, acclaimed writer-director Ali Abbasi (Border) unveils a gripping crime thriller and a daring indictment of a society in which rough justice is routinely a fact of life.
We will be sure to keep you up to date on future updates including an official release date which shouldn’t be too far off.
New ‘Terrifier 2’ Trailer Has Fans Going Nuts for the Gnarly Gorefest
Terrifier 2 isn’t messing about. It means business and so does director Damien Leone. Art the Clown is back to slash up a whole new load of folks and to prove that he is our generation’s Freddy Krueger, Micheal Myers and Jason Voorhees all in one. The latest trailer has fans going nuts for the sequel and after seeing the film at this year’s Fantastic Fest, I can definitely say that they aren’t kidding… this movie is a gnarly, gorefest that never lets up.
The synopsis for Terrifier 2 goes like this:
After being resurrected by a sinister entity, Art the Clown returns to the timid town of Miles County where he targets a teenage girl and her younger brother on Halloween night.
Terrifier 2 doubles down on everything that you loved about the first movie and it gives us a lot more time with David Howard Thorton’s masterful work as Art the Clown. It’s a perfect Halloween movie and really is a must-see for the hardcore horror fan.
