Halloween

Remember back in February when it was announced that the never-ending Halloween franchise was preparing to spawn yet another installment of the kill crazy adventures of everyone’s favorite silent, slaughtering wraith Michael Myers? The word they were using this time was “recalibration,” because “reboot” had officially become so last decade.

It’s still happening, and whether or not that’s a good thing depends entirely on you. Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the screenwriters of four Saw sequels, all three Feast flicks, the 2009 horror sleeper hit The Collector and its 2012 follow-up The Collection, and Piranha 3DD, are hard at work on the motion picture that is now being referred to publicly as Halloween Returns. Dunstan, who directed The Collector and The Collection, is also currently on board to direct.

Halloween's Michael Myers in Call of Duty: Ghosts DLC

With every new Call of Duty release, players can expect DLC map packs that offer plenty of new content to check out if you’re into online multiplayer.

With the first map pack DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts, which is titled “Onslaught,” a little something special for horror movie fan players is in store. In one of the maps, dubbed “Fog,” a horror movie-like map was created, complete with cabins in the woods. Even better, if you pull off a field order, you will become none other than Michael Myers from the John Carpenter classic Halloween.

You can see what it looks like to play as Michael Myers below.

Matt Andrews Horror Icons Created With Cosmetics

Artist Matt Andrews cleverly and beautifully illustrated some of horror’s biggest icons using only cosmetics and beauty supplies. And if that task wasn’t intricate enough, the beauty product he used for each horror baddie was chosen for its ironic twist; for example; Nosferatu and Dracula were created with bronzer, The Wolfman with shaving cream, and The Creature From The Black Lagoon in baby powder. Each illustration has a little story to go with it explaining why those products were chosen.

The artwork is part of Andrews’ book, Cosmonstrography: Cosmetic Monster Photography, which is available via Blurb for $16.

Andrews posted 13 images online, which also includes killers like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Michael Myers. Check out all 13 images here below.

31 Days of Horror Banner

Hello Geeks and Ghouls, Famous Monster here. Well, the day has finally come – it’s Halloween! 31 days. 64 films. I couldn’t think of a better way to put the kibosh on this epic month of movie watching than with the boogeyman himself, Michael Myers.

No, not The Love Guru Michael Myers – I’m talking about THE Michael Myers, as in the silent stalker from John Carpenter‘s 1978 classic, Halloween. Today’s final entry of 2012’s 31 Days of Horror is a triple-feature including Halloween, Rick Rosenthal‘s 1981 sequel, Halloween II, and Tommy Lee Wallace‘s 1982 cult film, Halloween III: Season of the Witch.

“Death has come to your little town, Sheriff. You can either ignore it, or you can help me stop it!”

Richard Lynch

Updated: 6/21/2012: Yahoo! has confirmed the news of Lynch’s passing. See update below.

This has yet to be confirmed, but I have received word from several notable sources that veteran actor Richard Lynch, best known for playing a wide array of heinous villains in a film and television career spanning nearly four decades, has died at the age of 76. At the moment there are no details as to the cause of his death, but we will keep you updated as we get information.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Lynch was born on February 12, 1936, as one of seven children in his family. Beginning in 1958 Lynch served in the United States Marine Corps for four years, ending his military career at the rank of Corporal. Following his stint in the Marines, Lynch returned to New York to study acting under the legendary acting teachers Uta Hagen and Lee Strasberg. He became a lifetime member of the prestigious Actors Studio in 1970 and had appeared in many stage productions on and off Broadway, including William Shakespeare’s Richard III and Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge. Lynch made his feature acting debut in 1973’s Scarecrow alongside Gene Hackman and Al Pacino. Throughout the 1970’s the actor built up his resume with appearances in films like The Seven-Ups, The Happy Hooker, God Told Me To, and Deathsport and television shows such as Starsky and Hutch, Battlestar Galactica, and Buck Rogers.

Halloween

Between bouts of orchestrating giant alien robot punch-ups and fanning the rage flames of Internet trolls who will still see his movies no matter what crazy crap he pulls on them, Michael Bay is collecting moribund movie franchises like properties on the Monopoly game board. In recent weeks online news sites have been treating the in-demand blockbuster schlock master’s plans for revitalizing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series (which will now be called Ninja Turtles and the title characters will be alien in origin) like they were continuing developments in the Trayvon Martin case.

Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company are now looking the Halloween movie series to their stable of brand name cinematic properties.

Surprise! ‘Halloween 3’ Will Be Moving Forward Without Rob Zombie & In 3-D!

Halloween

Bob Weinstein, head of The Weinstein Company with his brother Harvey, has announced to the LA Times that they are already developing a third chapter in the re-booted Halloween franchise, that they will be calling Halloween 3-D — a loving tip o’ the cap to ’80s horror threequels.

Shock rocker turned film maker Rob Zombie directed the first two movies in the resurrected franchise, but decided a while back that Halloween II (which opened this weekend) would be his last work in this world. Not to waste any time at all, the Weinsteins say that they already have another director lined up and in-negotiations, who does have experience with horror movies, and has an entirely new vision for Michael Myers — which means this may already be an whole new reboot within the reboot.
