Exorcist Header

“If we can give a couple people nightmares, I’ll go to bed a happy man.” – Writer Jeremy Slater

The Exorcist is the latest classic horror film to make the move to the small screen, following the like of Psycho (Bates Motel), Scream, and The Omen (Damien). The show set in Chicago, stars Academy Award winner Geena Davis as Angela Rance, a woman convinced her family, specifically her daughter Casey (Hannah Kasulka) are beset by a demon. As in the film, a pair of priests, one young, one old come to the aid of the family.

Exorcist SDCC Trailer

The Exorcist is universally recognized as one of the greatest horror movies of all time. It sent shockwaves through the industry in the early 70s and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards. Following in the footsteps of other classic horror films with TV counterparts, like Silence of the Lambs (Hannibal), Psycho (Bates Motel), and The Omen (Damien), The Exorcist is coming to the small screen, debuting on FOX this Fall. The film had moviegoers running for the exits and losing their lunches. Hopefully, they can replicate the horror on network television.

FOX released a trailer especially for San Diego Comic Con, which you can watch here below.

The Exorcist Header

Taking classic horror films and turning them into network TV series is the trendy thing nowadays. In some cases it has worked tremendously, as with AMC’s take on Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, Bates Motel. In other cases, not so much as Damien (based on the 1976 film The Omen) failed to gain an audience despite following Bates Motel on A&E and was cancelled after one season. FOX is jumping in with perhaps the biggest gamble on adapting a horror staple to the small screen, with The Exorcist coming this fall.

Check out the teasers below.

Geeks of Doom Netflix Streaming Review

Netflix Review: Cutthroat IslandCutthroat Island
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Renny Harlin
Starring Geena Davis, Matthew Modine, Frank Langella, Maury Chaykin
Carolco and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
Originally Released: December 22, 1995

Being the week upon which Talk Like A Pirate Day falls, I opted to look at a pirate flick for this week’s Netflix Review. So, grab your cutlass, affix your patch and wooden legs – we’re headed for Cutthroat Island.

Directed by Renny Harlin, Cutthroat Island is a movie that was made too early for its time, cursed by the financial woes from a dying studio. But despite its weaknesses, the movie does capture the fun element most remembered in some of the old Errol Flynn classics, and has matured into a movie that audiences can enjoy without taking it too seriously.

The plot follows a notorious wanted female pirate named Morgan Adams (Geena Davis) who finds a treasure map tattooed on the scalp of her dead father. The map is one third of the full piece, with one in the hands of Adams’ uncle, and another in the grubby evil mitts of antagonist Dawg Brown (Frank Langella). Taking command of her father’s ship and crew, and taking doctor and linguist William Shaw (Matthew Modine) on board, she leads a crusade to find the treasure of Cutthroat Island. It develops into a race against time as Brown chases Adams down, across the treacherous waters of the Caribbean.

Tim Burton Chats ‘Beetlejuice 2’ Status

Beetlejuice

Beetlejuice 2 hasn’t yet been greenlighted by anyone, and while some may be intrigued by the prospect (I won’t lie, I’m pretty curious) many folks probably don’t ever want to see it happen.

Nevertheless, those involved with the movie seem to be high on the idea of doing a follow-up. Back in June of 2010, it was revealed that both Geena Davis and Michael Keaton would be happy to return to the roles they played in the 1988 original, and now the man behind said original, Tim Burton, is also talking about the possibility of seeing a sequel happen.

If you haven’t come to terms with the fact that sequels and remakes are just a normal, everyday part of the Hollywood machine, then you better get used to it quickly. The sooner you do, the sooner you can enjoy the prospect of a movie like Beetlejuice II happening, instead of immediately scorning the very thought.

Before you starting heating up with rage, no, no there’s not a sequel to Tim Burton‘s fantastic 1988 horror-comedy on the way…yet. This is simply a hypothetical question ignited by some interesting quotes excavated by Moviehole over the past couple months.
