Romero’s “Lost” Film ‘The Amusement Park’ is Headed to Shudder!

Published

The Amusement Park

Shudder has snagged the rights to George A. Romero’s The Amusement Park, a film previously thought “lost.” AMC’s all-horror/thriller streamer plans to debut the newly restored print of the film this Summer in all of its territories including the UK, Ireland, New Zealand, Australia, and North America.

Much like the rest of Romero’s catalog of films, The Amusement Park is an allegory, this time for the harsh realities of aging.

The film stars Lincoln Maazel as an elderly man who becomes increasingly disoriented and agitated inside an amusement park as the harsh reality of aging are demonstrated repeatedly by the rides, crowds, and employees around him.

The Hollywood Reporter broke the news exclusively earlier today including a quote from Shudder’s general manager saying: “The moment we heard The Amusement Park had been rediscovered and was being restored, we knew we had to bring this unseen George A. Romero masterpiece to Shudder members.”

Romero was no stranger to making socio-political statements in his films. From Night of the Living Dead through his extensive career, his films were filled with statements on the dangers of commercialism and materialism in the U.S. as well as tackling subjects like racial and gender inequity.

In addition to the announcement, Shudder has released the official poster for the film by Polish artist Aleksander Wasilewski. You can see that full artwork below.

Shudder will premiere The Amusement Park in Summer 2021. iHorror will keep you updated when a solid date is announced. Are you excited to see the film? Let us know what you think in the comments below!

‘Hellraiser’ Receives a Big R-rating for “Graphic Nudity” and “Strong Bloody Violence” Over at Hulu

Published

Hellraiser

David Bruckner warped our minds with his beautiful nightmare titled The Night House. The film was an ode to Clive Barker without saying it was an ode to Clive Barker. The film was masterful. If you haven’t watched it yet, do yourself a huge favor and give it a watch. The reason we bring up Bruckner is because his mind is working to bring us Hellraiser over at Hulu.

A while back we shared the good news that Jamie Clayton was going to be our new Hellpriest, which we are dying to see in action. Along with the Hellpriest are her disciples the cenobites.

Hellraiser

Along with the great casting and great director, we also have Super Dark Times‘ writers Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski. Pssst. If you haven’t seen Super Dark Times, please go and watch it as well.

Today, Hulu’s Hellraiser received its official R-rating for “Strong bloody horror violence and gore, language throughout, some sexual content, and brief graphic nudity.” As is tradition! We wouldn’t have it any other way.

Clive Barker is onboard as a producer for a version of Hellraiser that is said to be a loyal and evolved reimagining of the original goopy and gory 1987 Hellraiser.

We aren’t entirely sure what that means, but you know what? With the team members listed above all being involved, we are very okay with whatever the finished product is. We can’t wait to see this thing.

We don’t have a release date on Bruckner’s Hellraiser but we will be sure to keep you updated. Stay tuned!

‘The Boy’ May End Up Being a Trilogy According to the Director

Published

on

Boy

2016’s The Boy was an off-the-wall experience. One that went big without a care for anything that the audience may have thought was absurd. While the film didn’t bloom or find a home at the box office, it did manage to find a home on digital and home video.

The 2020 sequel Brahms: The Boy II went in a much different direction than the first. Since the first film was built around a twist ending, it was difficult to see how a proper narrative could be made the second time around. But, director Willliam Brent Bell managed to put something together that was fun and unexpected.

While speaking with Comicbook.com, about the future of The Boy films director Willliam Brent Bell said “I think so. I think when we made the first movie, the assumption was if we continued the story, it would’ve been the story of Brahms, the guy in the walls, like a slasher killer. And then, as time went on and the producers saw how the doll had become in the zeitgeist with Kushner in particular, and so it was like, ‘Okay, we’ll focus on that.’ But in a way, I feel like a movie, it’s either you have a great standalone film or you probably need a trilogy to really round out a character. And so the second film in that series focused on the doll, and I think a third film would 100% focus on Brahms, the guy.” 

So, it sounds like we may get a third film for a full Brahms trilogy. If that is the case we are most likely looking at Bell once again following his current film, Orphan: First Kill. Bell sounds very interested in returning to The Boy films. We will just have to wait and see.

Would you be excited about a third film in the Brahms run of films? Do you think a third The Boy would be a blast?

Actor, Dane DiLegro Became the Predator in ‘Prey’ Now He Wants to Play Jason Voorhees

Published

DiLegro

Dane DiLegro recently played the hunter in Prey. Buff DiLegro looked fantastic as the gigantic, menacing Predator. He has recently taken on other big monster roles in American Horror Stories and The Walking Dead. Now, DiLegro has his sights set on one of the most iconic formidable monsters of all time.

While chatting with Megan Navarro at Bloody Disgusting, DiLegro discussed his dream roles. Amazingly, one of those dream roles was to play the Predator! So, one down. Next up, DiLegro aims for his other dream role, Jason Voorhees.

“When I moved to Los Angeles when I was hooked on only doing monsters, it was being a Predator and being Jason Voorhees. Jason Voorhees ties back even further into my childhood. I was him about four times for Halloween. That character is fascinating to me because he’s a big supernatural child, and his movements are minimalist and effective. I mean, just tilting your head a centimeter to the right tells a completely different story of this character, and being granted the challenge to create and tell a story through Jason’s eyes to the audience, non-verbally, would be so much fun. He’s huge. He’s menacing. He doesn’t give a shit. He wants to avenge his mom.

As Friday the 13th fans we are still out here suffocating with no chance of a legal settlement or film in sight. The legal battles are still waging strong and we are still quite a ways away from any kind of release, but we remain hopeful.

What would you think about DiLegro playing Jason Voorhees? Think he would make a good man behind the mask?

Prey is now streaming on Hulu. Don’t miss it.

Be sure to check out Megan Navarro’s full interview with DiLegro.
