I cannot wait.

Skip Woods (“Swordfish,” “A Good Day to Die Hard,” “Hitman”) has been hired to pen the script for a dark and gritty TV series adaptation of the cult comic “Hack/Slash”.

The story centers on Cassie Hack, a young woman who has become a killer of killers and travels to small towns across the country hunting hunting homicidal maniacs and serial killers in the vein of horror icons like Freddy Krueger and Michael Myers.

She is partnered on her journey with Vlad, a hulking companion who serves as her protector. The property has spent many years in development as a film with the likes of Marcus Nispel, Fredrik Bond and Todd Lincoln attached as directors at some point. Woods and Adrian Askarieh will executive produce the series.

You know them, you love them. The guilty pleasure, b-list (or worse) horror movies that are so low budget they are more comedies than horror. From “Plan 9 From Outer Space” to “Troll 2”, these cult classic no-budget masterpieces defy all expectations and survive as favorites to fans who weren’t even born when they were first released.  Offered up by the classic local network horror hosts, from Elvira to Zacherley throughout the 80’s, no movie was too bad, no budget too small. Many of these treats are available free online, long out of copyright and you can now make fun of these schlock-fests any time from the convenience of your cell phone. Continue reading

Following the first reboot in 2009 and word of a second one currently in development, fans of the “Friday the 13th” franchise are patiently waiting for another go around with Jason Voorhees however they can get it.

Today comes word that Gun Media has launched a Kickstarter campaignfor a “Friday the 13th” video game that would see Kane Hodder reprising the role after playing it in four of the sequels.

Makeup effects artist Tom Savini and the franchise’s co-creator Sean S. Cunningham are also involved in the project. Set in the semi-open world of Camp Crystal Lake, it is described as a third-person, asymmetrical 1v7 multiplayer title where one player controls Jason Voorhees while the remaining seven control camp counselors trying to survive the night.

Fans can play as either Jason Voorhees or the seven camp counselors, and can ever create their own movie trailer based on the games they play. The character Tommy Jarvis (played by Corey Feldman in the films) will also return as an in-game guide for the player.

The Kickstarer campaign launched today, and will end on Friday November 13th. The goal is $700,000 and in less than one day so far it has already achieved $146,000 as of the time of this writing. All the rewards have an October 2016 date which means the game is likely targeting that day of release.
