Gremlins

Amidst all of these reboots and remakes and sequels, it is pretty surprising that we’ve not yet seen Gremlins 3 find life. We’ve heard about a new movie in the franchise in the past—sometimes as a remake, sometimes as a sequel—but nothing has ever come of it.

Thankfully Zach Galligan, who starred in the first two Gremlins movies, is keeping us updated on where things stand. Continue below to read what he had to say.

‘Gremlins 3’ Won’t Be A Reboot, Could Follow ‘Jurassic World’ Model

Gremlins header

The long-developing third Gremlins film was rumored to be a reboot, and as you can imagine, this didn’t sit well with any of the fans of the franchise. Despite these rumors, actor Zach Galligan says that it won’t be a reboot or a remake, but an actual sequel. And you might have Chris Columbus for keeping the franchise close to his chest and the huge success of Jurassic World to thank for that.

More on the story below.

‘The Chair’ Dedicated To “Rowdy” Roddy Piper

Roddy Piper Chair Header

“Rowdy” Roddy Piper left a lasting legacy in and out of the wrestling ring, when he passed away Friday, from cardiac arrest at the age of 61. Commonly known for his Hall of Fame wrestling career, Piper was one of the greatest villains ever in the ring. Piper used his natural charisma to segue into a fairly successful, although mostly B-movie laden film career. His most iconic role came in John Carpenter’s 1988 sci-fi thriller, They Live, as a drifter who stumbles into an alien invasion. That film made him a cult hero, and solidified his transition from the ring to big screen performer. Piper was active to the end; his IMDB page has 8 projects listed in the production stages. One of them currently in post-production is Chad Ferrin’s adaptation of Peter Simeti’s original graphic novel, The Chair from Alterna Comics. The makers of that film are dedicating the project to the late wrestler/actor.

The Long Lost Bill Murray Film ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ Surfaces Online

Bill Murray

In the 39 years since it went on the air for the first time, Saturday Night Live has seen its talented cast, writers, and production staff go on to conquer Hollywood and forever change the landscape of modern comedy filmmaking. Some of the movies they made were classics, some were pretty good, a few were downright awful and excruciating to watch, and most were simply blah. But at least they saw a legitimate release in one form or another so that viewers could make their own judgments.

Such wasn’t the case with Nothing Lasts Forever, an oddly endearing science-fiction romantic comedy adventure written and directed by Tom Schiller, a filmmaker beloved for making such classic SNL short subjects as La Dolce Gilda and Don’t Look Back in Anger who would later go on to direct over 500 humorous television commercials for his own company, Schillervision. Despite having never received an official release in theaters or on home video in the three decades since it was originally scheduled to premiere and subsequently buried by its home studio, the film has found its way in full onto YouTube.

You can watch Nothing Lasts Forever here below.

Miller has worked with some of the great directors: Scorsese, Corman, Dante, Cameron, Demme, and more. If you’re an avid moviegoer, you definitely know his face, but few know his name and even fewer know his story: an aspiring writer turned accidental actor.

Directed by Elijah Drenner, That Guy Dick Miller documents Miller’s funny and unexpected story, featuring interviews from the directors, producers, co-stars, and friends who have helped make him Hollywood’s leading “that guy.”

Blu-ray Review: Hatchet III – Unrated Director’s Cut

Hatchet IIIHatchet III
Unrated Director’s Cut
Blu-ray | DVD
Directed by BJ McDonnell
Starring Danielle Harris, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams
Dark Sky Films
Release Date: August 13, 2013

The latest installment of Adam Green‘s extra-bloody slasher movie saga Hatchet III has arrived in full force on Blu-ray, but unlike the first two movies, Green did not direct this one. He both wrote and produced the new movie, but decided prior to filming to hand directing duties off to newcomer BJ McDonnell – Green’s cinematographer on the first two Hatchet movies. When the original premiered on the film festival circuit in late 2006 and arrived briefly in theaters and on home video a year later, horror fans who had long been swamped by turgid remakes and watered-down PG-13 studio offerings lapped up every drop of crimson grue dripping from its celluloid frames. Though far, far from being a box office success, Hatchet‘s explosive popularity with fans warranted the requisite sequel.

Arriving almost five years later and with little of the fanfare that greeted the original when it debuted, Hatchet II briefly wormed its way into the national mindset once the news broke that it had been pulled from most theater chains due its being released without an MPAA rating. The seemingly manufactured controversy (which reminded me of the mild uproar over homophobic slurs used in Eli Roth’s first Hostel movie that was kept alive on the letters page of Fangoria for a brief period in 2006 mostly through the efforts of the director himself) couldn’t help Hatchet II build a fraction of the cult following earned by its predecessor and overall audience reaction was unimpressive. However, it did well enough for a prospective third movie to get the green light, which brings us to the present day and Hatchet III.

Hatchet III

The latest in a low-budget slasher franchise that kicked off with a bang over six years ago and whose first sequel encountered controversy during its brief, unrated theatrical run, Hatchet III is about to unleash some more gruesome carnage and sick fun this summer. MPI/Dark Sky Films have announced the movie’s release date and unveiled its first teaser trailer.

You can watch the trailer here below.

Hatchet III, which marks the directorial debut of BJ McDonnell (a camera operator on the first two movies as well as last summer’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), was filmed in Louisiana in May and June of 2012. Back for the third installment are Danielle Harris as the series’ resilient heroine Marybeth and slasher icon Kane Hodder as the monstrous backwoods psychopath Victor Crowley. Joining the cast for this latest bout of gory mayhem are Zach Galligan (Gremlins), Derek Mears (the 2009 remake of Friday the 13th), Caroline Williams (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Diane Ayala Goldner (Feast), and Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs), among others. Original writer and director Adam Green wrote the screenplay and executive produced.

Hatchet-Victor Crowley

With filming set to kick off this week near Louisiana, the services of a handful of talents have been enlisted for Hatchet III, the third installment in the saga of feared swamp dweller Victor Crowley.

It’s been announced that a trio of new actors have joined the cast, starting with ’80s star Zach Galligan. The actor is best known for playing the lead in the beloved 1984 Joe Dante horror-fantasy Gremlins, as well as Gremlins 2: The New Batch. Galligan also starred in Waxwork and its sequel, and has continued acting in small-budget features with short TV stints sprinkled in here and there since then.

Also joining the cast is Cody Blue Snider, the son of Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider, and popular geek goddess Rileah Vanderbilt.
