Last week The Shape of Water director Guillermo del Toro shared some thoughts on his upcoming stop-motion animated take on Pinocchio.

But as an added bonus, del Toro also confirmed something that had been rumored: he’s producing an English-language remake of the recent Argentine horror flick Terrified for Fox Searchlight.

You can find more info below along with a trailer if you’re unfamiliar with the movie.

The Ranger movie

One of the best indie horror films of 2018 is Jenn Wexler’s The Ranger. Written by Wexler and Giaco Furino, the film feels like the love child of The Return of the Living Dead and Wolf Creek. Since premiering at SXSW in March, the film has been touring the national and international festival circuit and had short theater runs in both New York and Los Angeles. It was reported this week by Variety that the film was picked up by AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder and will debut on the network next year.

Joe Bob Briggs interview

New York Comic-Con caters to those of every genre of geekdom. Horror fans were not left out this year as Joe Bob Briggs, Greg Nicotero, and Sam Zimmerman were there Thursday to represent Shudder at their panel previewing upcoming shows on the streaming service. Horror fans have known the name Joe Bob Briggs for many years. I first encountered him while watching cable TV at my grandparents’ house on the Briggs-hosted MonsterVision on TNT, after a run on The Movie Channel. Specializing in exploitation and B-level horror films and using his infamous rating system of “Drive-in Totals” (Blood, Breasts, and Beasts), Briggs became a staple with horror fans anywhere. Earlier this year, Shudder and parent company AMC brought him back to do one last all-nighter, “Joe Bob’s Last Drive-In.” The event was so popular it literally broke Shudder and after going viral, Briggs was asked back for more specials later this year. We had a chance to speak with Briggs at NYCC on Thursday afternoon during a press roundtable.

The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs

Back in June horror streaming service Shudder announced a movie marathon called The Last Drive-In hosted by Joe Bob Briggs, and horror fans everywhere were elated. So elated, in fact, that Shudder wasn’t prepared for the response. When the 24-ish-hour marathon arrived in July so many people tried to tune in that the streaming service broke down. But all is well. Anyone who missed any or all of the marathon can still watch it to this day, and now some more great new has arrived as a result of it.

Shudder has announced that because of the overwhelming response to The Last Drive-In, Joe Bob Briggs will be back for two holiday specials in the coming months. And not only that, but he’ll also be getting a shiny new ongoing series sometime in 2019. You can find more info on the news below.

Jordskott Episode 3 on Shudder

Jordskott
Episodes 3-4 Del III & Del IV
Created by Henrik Bjorn
Written by Frederick Olsen
Directed by Anders Engstrom
Starring Moa Gammel, Stina Sundlof, Johannes Brost, Hans Mosesson, Lia Boysen, Peter Andersson
Shudder
Release date: April 13, 2017

On April 6th, Swedish series Jordskott hit the United States exclusively on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder. The channel, available online at Shudder.com or on Roku, released the first two episodes of the ten-part series and releases two episodes every Thursday. The first two parts introduced us the strange town of Silverhojd, where police officer Eva Thornblad (Moa Gammel) returned home after her father’s suicide. It’s also the sight where seven years ago her daughter Josefine disappeared by the lake, a presumed drowning. Eva’s return coincides with another small child’s disappearance and her maternal and police instincts are in high gear. Despite sounding like a police procedural, there is a ton of wacky stuff going on in Silverhhojd. Eva’s father was the head of a cellulose factory and according to crazy old man Olof Gran (Hans Mosesson), this “upset the forest.” A girl appears out of nowhere in the middle of the fog and Eva is convinced is Josefine. Except this girl is infected with a parasite and apparently gets nutrients from plants. As Eva digs deeper, her own life is threatened and the conspiracies and mysteries continue to grow…

Jordskott Shudder exclusive

Jordskott
Episodes 1-2
Created by Henrik Bjorn
Starring Moa Gammel, Stina Sundlof, Johannes Brost, Hans Mosesson
Shudder
Release date: April 6, 2017

The Swedish horror series Jordskott made its American debut on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder on Thursday, April 6th. The first two hour-long episodes (of ten total) are currently available with a new episode premiering each Thursday.

Created by Henrik Bjorn, Jordskott is a hard series to pin down. There are children disappearing and reappearing, strange parasitic illnesses, conspiracies, and ancient legends about the forest. Even the word is hard to translate as a Google search of “Jordskott” yields varied translations, most coming back to “earth shot” or something with “soil.” Whatever it means, the show blends police drama with the supernatural and creates an eerie, atmospheric, and uneasy world. Horror fans should take note of this, as it’s yet another binge-worthy series.

Prevenge movie

Prevenge
Written & Directed by Alice Lowe
Cast: Alice Lowe, Gemma Whelan, Kate Dickie, Jo Hartley
Distributor: Shudder
Runtime: 88 min
Release date: March 24, 2017

A woman walks into a pet store and engages in a conversation with the owner rife with sexual innuendo. As he shows off his exotic animal collection the woman grabs a knife off a table and slices his throat. A thumping electronic score pipes in as the film title drops in one letter at a time. Prevenge is a horror movie because the main character is a serial killer. But rather than an escaped psychopath or a masked maniac, the killer here is a very pregnant woman.

Sadako vs Kayako

Sadako vs Kayako
Directed by Koji Shiraishi
Written by Takashi Shimizu & Koji Suzuki
Starring Masahiro Komoto, Mizuki Yamamoto, Aimi Satsukawa, Tina Tamashiro, Maiko Kikuchi, Masanobu Ando, Runa Endo
Shudder
Release date: January 26, 2017

King Kong vs. Godzilla! Frankenstein vs. The Wolfman! Freddy vs. Jason! Horror has always managed to take its greatest antagonists and pit them against one another. In 2017 Japan, the battle rages on in Sadako vs Kayako between the two most popular ghosts of the modern J-Horror scene: Sadako, the villainous ghost from Koji Suzuki’s Ring series, and Kayako, the ghost with a grudge from Takashi Shimizu’s Ju-On films. These are the two film series that helped launched J-Horror to the United States signaling a host of remakes, including Gore Verbinski’s adaptation The Ring in 2002 and Shimizu’s own remake The Grudge in 2004. Each of those films were insanely popular, grossing well over $100 million and earning sequels. The third installment of The Ring series, Rings, opens in theaters next week, while Sadako vs Kayako debuts today on Shudder, AMC’s horror streaming service.
