The Last Horror Blog: 'Friday the 13th' Game Readies For Release, 'The Black Gloves' Trailer and More

Apr 27, 2017

Friday the 13th game has a release date – If you’re like me, you’ve been eagerly waiting to learn when the guys at Gun Media would finally release their multiplayer Friday the 13th game. Well, wonder no more – and clear your schedule on May 26, because that’s when you’ll be able to don Jason’s iconic hockey mask and start slaughtering camp counselors (or become a camp counselor hoping to survive one of Jason’s infamous rampages…).

Friday the 13th: The Game is slated for release on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Digital copies will retail for $40, physical for $60.

Here’s the official release date reveal clip.


David Fincher in talks to direct World War Z 2 In perhaps the most surprising bit of movie news in recent memory, filmmaker David Fincher is reportedly close to signing on to direct zombie action sequel World War Z 2 for Paramount.

While there’s no official deal yet (and the sequel hasn’t been officially greenlit), sources say both are close to happening. Fincher, who hasn’t directed a film since 2014’s Gone Girl, was star Brad Pitt’s choice to direct. It appears he may get his wish.

If everything falls into place, expect production on World War Z 2 to begin sometime in the first quarter of 2018.


The power of Christ compels you to watch American ExorcismIf you find yourself hankering for a film wherein evil spirits must be cast out of the living through an elaborate Catholic ritual, then I’ve got good news! Tripp Weathers’ American Exorcism is hitting VOD on May 2. Here are the plot details:

Damon Richter thought he left the world of possessions, exorcisms, and evil behind until an old friend arrives with frightening information about his estranged daughter, knowing that only his otherworldly skills can save her.

That synopsis doesn’t make a ton of sense, but maybe this trailer will pique your interest.


Beware the Owlman in this new teaser for The Black GlovesIf you like the new trend of black and white horror films filled with atmosphere, you’re going to want to check out this new teaser for Lawrie Brewster and Sarah Daly’s The Black Gloves.

This stylish-looking period piece marks the return of the creepy Owlman, first seen in the duo’s Lord of Tears. Here are the plot details.

Dr. Finn Galloway is a psychologist obsessed with the mysterious death of his young patient, and her belief in a strange and terrifying entity... 

Determined to find answers, Finn discovers a vital clue when he learns that once-famous ballerina Elisa Grey now lives in crippling fear of a similar entity... the so-called Owlman. In the crumbling Baldurrock Estate, he finds the ballerina hidden away, under the watchful eye of her sinister guardian, Lorena Velasco. 

There, in the bleak isolation of the Scottish Highlands, Finn must battle against a force of unimaginable evil - a nightmare foe like no other. 

The film is slated for a late 2017 release. Lawrie and Daly are currently seeking funding to help finish post-production (the feature is shot, and is getting released, but your donations will help the team put the finishing touches on things). If you’re so inclined, donate here after you check out the trailer below.


Horror on the Horizon

April’s horror drought continues through the last Friday of the month. The only theatrical opening this weekend is a film titled The Black Room, and it’s only playing in Los Angeles. Here are the plot details in case you happen to be near a theater showing it:

A supernatural tale where evil takes on a sexy side. A married couple moving into their new home is faced with an entity that feeds off lust and desire, corrupting and/or killing everyone in its path as it plots a horrifying plan to destroy the world.

May doesn’t start out much better. There’s a limited release of supernatural thriller Another Evil in select markets, but the real highlight of the week is undoubtedly Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.


Horror on Home Video

Things look a little better on the homefront, at least.

May 2 sees the arrival of Beyond the Gates, a cool little indie chiller about two brothers who get swept up in one of those old horror VHS games they find in their dead father’s video store. This one’s definitely worth a look.

Also available this week is the latest installment in the Ring saga, the imaginatively titled Rings.

Things are quieter on May 9, unfortunately. You get a Blu-ray release of the forgettable Psycho remake, a cool 2-disc collector’s edition of Frank Henenlotter’s cult classic Brain Damage, and a few Planet of the Apes discs. Not terrible, but not exactly mindblowing, either.
