In October, I wrote about the horror of dismantling source material with Interview with the Vampire. The film had its problems, but I’d be hard pressed to say it is unwatchable. Especially when you compare it with another movie in the Vampire Chronicles, Queen of the Damned. The crown for the worst movie I’ve watched this year belongs to the Queen.
This novel-turned-miniseries is shaking up the horror game and leaving viewers shooketh.
(Editor’s note: There’s a rumor that Alex Lancaster, the founder/Editor in Chief/Lead Writer for Poor Man’s Spoiler, secretly has a Quasimodo-esque love child he keeps hidden away in some basement. This has never been proven, but if true, said child would likely have an opinion on films and entertainment. “Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” and all that. Today we bring you an article by Toby. We apologize.)
As we enter into October, I’m sure one of us here (not me) will be reviewing the latest horror phenomena on the screen. Before we do that though, I’d like to take you through a real horror; the dismantling of source material.
Paramount has released the first trailer for the upcoming Stephen King remake, Pet Sematary. Check it out below as well as more details on the upcoming horror flick.
While American Horror Story didn’t hold a panel at this year’s SDCC, they did have an event outside of the convention where they revealed the trailer for the new season. The trailer was shown via a water projection on the marina outside the convention center in San Diego, and has since been released online. You can check out the trailer below which features some rather creepy clowns.
Just when you started to forget about the Saw franchise after many, many sequels, Lionsgate has released a trailer for their upcoming sequel/reboot Jigsaw. The trailer makes the movie seem like more than just a straight up horror film, with a sense of mystery and action throughout the two and a half minutes. It will be interesting to see how things play out and if the film sticks to the series’ more usual horror genre tendencies or if it expands and become something more like The Purge, which has a bit more action and thriller aspect to it than just the classic slasher fare.
