‘Scream 6’ Delays Production in Light of Neve Campbell Not Returning

Published

on

Neve Campbell is not going to return to Scream 6 according to Deadline. The decision to not return is one that is directly about the amount of pay that was offered to Campbell and the amount of money that she has decided that she is worth.

“It’s been a very difficult decision to move on.” Campbell said. “To all my Scream fans, I love you. You’ve always been so incredibly supportive to me. I’m forever grateful to you and to what this franchise has given me over the past 25 years,”

Cambell says that over the years as a woman it has been difficult to truly discover her worth. Ultimately, she doesn’t find the amount of money offered to her to be sufficient for her to return as Sidney Prescott.

In response to the news, it appears that production on Scream 6 has been delayed until June 9. Now that delay may have nothing to do with Campbell’s decision but the two news items are far too close together to not be related.

Longtime Scream castmate, David Arquette has gone on record to respond to Campbell’s decision to not return for Scream 6.

“I’d love for her to be a part of it. A Scream movie without Sidney is kind of unfortunate, but I understand her decision. It’s all a business in a way, they have to balance all these elements to fit a budget and produce a film.” Arquette said.

Arquette is hopeful about future Scream films though. He says that we know Sidney is alive out there, and could potentially return to future Scream entries if she was inclined.

It is a big bummer to know that Campbell won’t be returning. However, anything is possible. In the past, she has said that she wouldn’t return. After Wes Craven died, she was adamant about saying she wouldn’t return. It feels as if the dollar amount changes, so will her mind.

What do you think about Scream without Campbell? Do you think it will be fine without her?

Barbara Crampton Joins ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ in Latest DLC

Published

on

Gun has been knocking it out of the park recently with their massively successful Texas Chainsaw Massacre game. And now horror fans have something else to be excited about. The horror legend herself, Barbara Crampton (From Beyond) will be making an appearance in the game’s newest DLC.

Barbara has told Fangoria that she will be added in the game as a new mom character. Fans of Gun’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre game have already applauded the company for their fan service and their ability to respond to fans and keep the game updated with new features. This just shows how much the company truly understands horror fans.

Turns out, Barbara Crampton is a huge Texas Chainsaw Massacre fan from way back. In an Instagram post, she had the following to say: “probably my favorite movie of all time is The Texas Chain Saw Massacre… I was 22 and I couldn’t finish it.”

Not only that, but she is also friends with the amazing Gunnar Hansen (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre). Here is what she had to say about him: “My favorite character is Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface… He sat right next to me at my first convention and helped me… we became good friends after that.”

So not only do we have horror royalty joining the game, but Barbara Crampton is also friends with the OG Leatherface as well as being a lifelong fan. Hopefully, this will spell success for the game’s upcoming DLC. Not that it was unlikely to be a hit with horror fans in the first place. Gun has a proven track record of delivering just what fans are hoping for.

‘Tales from the Crypt’ Publisher, EC Comics is Being Brought Back to Life at Oni Comics

Published

on

Tales From

After seventy years of being shut down, the iconic EC Comics is coming back by way of Oni Comics. Originally founded as an educational comics brand, it would later become a publisher known for its horror comics and tales to keep you up late at night. William Gaines lead the way and during his time we were gifted with a run of comics such as Tales From the Crypt, The Haunt of Fear, The Vault of Horror, and of course Weird Science among others. Founded in 1944 and running to 1956 it was eventually shut down due to claims that comic books were affecting the minds of our adolescents. After reaching Congress the issue was large enough to take down the small comics publisher.

Of course, later on, HBO would take Tales From the Crypt and reboot it for television with a whole new generation. However, for comic collectors, it was up to either visiting select digital archives online or purchasing old issues by way of auction. It is exciting to hear that Oni Comics is going to bring EC Comics back to life.

“EC Comics is one of the most artistically important and culturally significant publishers of all time. In ways both artful and shocking, EC confronted the darkness lurking behind the thin facade of American society — a throughline of radically confrontational storytelling that we intend to both uphold and escalate with the first new EC tales in decades. We’re challenging ourselves to evolve EC’s relentless energy and fearless sensibilities in ways never before attempted. These are intense comics for our intense times.“ Oni Comics Publisher, Hunter Gorinson said.

The first two comics under the new partnership are two new anthology titles that both lend themselves to the flair of their classics. First up Epitaphs from the Abyss followed by Cruel Universe. You can check out the cover for Cruel Universe at the bottom of the page.

Although the partnership is said to not be about nostalgia, we are still hoping that following some of these new titles we do get a special revisit for Tales from the Crypt or one of the other classics.

Epitaphs From the Abyss is due out in stores beginning this July. Cruel Universe is set to arrive in August.

Images and a Poster Have Arrived For Eli Roth’s ‘Borderlands’

Published

on

Borderlands

Eli Roth’s Borderlands is well on its way to a theater near you. The Gearbox Software game adaptation looks to take its characters, costumes, and the world of Pandora right from the game. So, that is a good sign. However, we are still on the fence with this one. We will have a better idea of what to expect when a trailer drops tomorrow. Today we have our first look at some images from the film along with a hyper-neon fun poster.

The synopsis for Borderlands goes like this:

Lilith (Blanchett), an infamous outlaw with a mysterious past, reluctantly returns to her home planet of Pandora to find the missing daughter of the universe’s most powerful S.O.B., Atlas (Ramirez). Lilith forms an alliance with an unexpected team – Roland (Hart), a former elite mercenary, now desperate for redemption; Tiny Tina (Greenblatt), a feral pre-teen demolitionist; Krieg (Munteanu), Tina’s musclebound, rhetorically challenged protector; Tannis (Curtis), the scientist with a tenuous grip on sanity; and Claptrap (Black), a persistently wiseass robot. These unlikely heroes must battle alien monsters and dangerous bandits to find and protect the missing girl, who may hold the key to unimaginable power. The fate of the universe could be in their hands – but they’ll be fighting for something more: each other.

Borderlands stars Cate Blanchett, Kevin Hart, Edgar Ramirez, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Greenblatt, Florian Munteanu, Haley Bennett, Olivier Richters, Gina Gershon, Cheyenne Jackson, Charles Babalola, Benjamin Byron Davis, Steven Boyer, Bobby Lee, Ryann Redmond, Penn Jillette, and Janina Gavankar, and Jack Black.
