The Walking Dead make-up team has been sneaking in awesome zombie homages throughout its run. Over that time the team has put together zombies that have looked like George Romero Dawn of the Dead and Day of the Dead classics like Dr. Toungue along with a host of other cool monster-look-a-like radness. The team has even used heads from Game of Thrones and made zombies resemble certain celebs. In the latest episode, The Commonwealth Blues, the makeup team has gone all out to give us a Freddy Krueger zombie!
That’s right, y’all. The Dream Master himself, Freddy Krueger got the walker treatment. The scene involves Daryl, Maggie and crew diving down into a sewer and running headlong into zombies with a head burned with a very familiar design. There is absolutely no doubt that this is a very awesome homage from The Walking Dead makeup team. If you look closely at the sweater that the Krueger Walker is wearing you can see that it used to be striped. Of course, all the sewer dinge has stained it almost black. If you look really closely though, you can see the lines.
The makeup team also cleverly concealed the Freddy Walker in the sewer’s darkness. The scene is extremely dark. The photos I posted below actually have the light bumped up a bit.
We have been dying to see a new Nightmare movie. So, even though this isn’t an actual Nightmare on Elm Street film, it is still very cool to see our boi, Freddy moving around out there somewhere.

Aubrey Plaza Wants to be the Next Tim Burton With ‘Hocus Pocus’ Like Film
Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.
While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.
Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.
We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.
M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Knock at the Cabin’ Finds Danger Right Outside
M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.
Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.
The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:
“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”
Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.
‘Cocaine Bear’ Gives Us One of the Wildest Posters of the Year
Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.
Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.
Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:
“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”
The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
