The Last Horror Blog: 'Inside' Remake Lands a Director, Plus: First Trailer for the 'Wolf Creek' Miniseries

Mar 31, 2016

English remake of Inside lands a director – Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s Inside is one of the crown jewels of the all too short French New Wave horror movement. A harrowing tale of a pregnant woman stalked in her home, it’s intense, gory, visceral, and essentially (aside from a few logic issues) perfect. So, normally, news of a remake would be met with groans. However, this newly announced English language version could be interesting…

Miguel Angel Vivas (who gave us the highly-entertaining film Kidnapped) will direct the update (which features a script from [Rec] filmmaker Jaume Balaguero) when it begins shooting in the very near future. Given that this doesn’t seem to be a traditional Hollywood-styled remake, and that Kidnapped certainly feels similar to Inside in some ways, I’m cautiously optimistic about this. The real challenge will be replacing Beatrice Dalle – who’s absolutely terrifying in the original film.

Check out the trailer for the original below.

 

New Friday the 13th is not a found footage flick – Platinum Dunes producers Andrew Form and Brad Fuller were at WonderCon this past weekend to promote the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel, but the duo did find time to give us some tiny hints about the long in development new installment in the Friday the 13th franchise.

Rumors were that the new film would be set in the ‘80s and had a found footage angle – but with new writer Aaron Guzikowski onboard, the plans have shifted a bit.

When asked, Form offered up the following: “There is truth that this is period…and NOT found footage.”

While Form doesn’t clarify what period, the ‘80s seems a safe bet. I’m sort of torn on the found footage thing. I don’t hate the form the way so many of my fellow geeks do, and I think Jason might make for an interesting focal point for this type of project. That being said, I’ll take a traditional Friday sequel at this point. I guess the whole idea of setting it in the winter is gone…

 

Wolf Creek miniseries gets a teaser – Australian TV network Stan is set to unleash a six part miniseries based on Greg McLean’s Wolf Creek films. Today, we’ve got the first teaser trailer.

The new tale finds another family running afoul of deranged outback serial killer Mick Taylor (John Jarratt), but things go in an unexpected direction when the hunter finds himself being hunted by a female survivor.

All six episodes of the new series are set to debut together – meaning you won’t have to spend weeks waiting for new episodes (life in the era of binge-watching is a wonderful thing…) – sometime later this year. Hopefully this makes it to America.

Expect more details as we get closer to Wolf Creek’s debut.

 

Preorder Mezco’s awesome new Pinhead figure – If you like horror movie action figures, you’re going to want to check out this upcoming release from the folks over at Mezco.

The company has immortalized the Hellraiser III version of everyone’s favorite Cenobite, Pinhead, in this new 12” figure. Complete with pins, a Lament Configuration, flowing robes, growling visage, and copious flesh wounds, this is a thing of (okay, admittedly dark…) beauty.

Complete with two sets of hands and seven points of articulation (and shipped in a collectable box for displaying him without having to open it – sort of like the Lament Configuaration itself), this is the perfect holiday gift for the Hellraiser fan on your shopping list.

Swing by Mezco’s site to preorder. Pinhead is expected to ship out in September or October of this year.

Unholy terror abounds in new The Conjuring 2 trailer – WonderCon goers got a look at the brand new trailer for James Wan’s The Conjuring 2 over the weekend, and thanks to the magic of the Internet, you can check it out too.

Ed and Lorraine Warren find themselves tasked with handling “England’s Amityville” in the new movie, which is full of the kind of demonic shenanigans you’d expect if you saw the original The Conjuring. It looks to be shaping up quite nicely, but I’ll reserve judgment until the film hits theaters on June 10.

 

Horror on the Horizon

April isn’t exactly October, so it’s not particularly shocking that there’s once again a dearth of horror films playing at your local movie theater.

April Fool’s Day brings us a limited release of Mickey Keating’s Darling, which tells the tale of a lonely young woman’s descent into madness after becoming the caretaker of an old Manhattan mansion. Larry Fessenden, Sean Young, and Lauren Ashley Carter headline.

A week later sees the wide release of Before I Wake, which finds Thomas Jane and Kate Bosworth battling the nightmares turned real that manifests whenever their eight year old adopted child falls asleep. Sounds pretty ho-hum to me, and the PG-13 rating isn’t a good sign, but it’s the only fright flick releasing that week.

 

Horror on Home Video

hashtag horrorThings are a little more promising on home video, at least.

April 5 sees the arrival of #Horror, wherein Chloe Sevigny confronts real-life cyber-bullying when her and her friends’ obsession with an online game goes too far. Reportedly based on a true story.

April 12 is a veritable cornucopia of goodies for horror hounds. We get the amazing sounding 3-disc special edition set of Brian Yuzna’s Bride of Re-Animator, which features Jeffrey Combs’ Dr. Herbert West back doing what he does best: re-animating the dead. It’s chock full of goodies.

We also get Scream Factory’s blu-ray release of John Carpenter’s Village of the Damned, as well as Natalie Dormer’s horror foray The Forest. Rounding it out is the blu-ray release of Sex, Murder, Art: The Films of Jorg Buttgereit – a four disc collection of the German goremeister’s most famous films (Nekromantik 1 & 2, Der Todesking, and Schramm). A must have for gore aficionados, even if I find Buttgereit’s work mostly a bore.
