As soon as the shot was shared online, many fans of the franchise have been commenting nothing but positive things about it. I have to be honest, it took me a while to warm up to it. I think when we actually see the full reveal in action, that’s the moment when the mask will really shine.

If you would like to keep up with everything going on with the new Halloween film, Blumhouse and co have lunched an official website today at HalloweenMovie.com.

Head on down to take a look for yourself, and don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments section below.

It’s great to see one of my personal favorite legendary horror actors still actively working in the genre. As many of you already know, Bill Moseley just wrapped on Rob Zombie’s The Devil’s Rejects sequel 3 From hell, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the Otis Driftwood character this time around.

One of Moseley’s other horror projects that we have our eye on is Haynze Whitmore’s upcoming cannibalistic clown flick Crepitus, which is in the final stages of post production as we type this. And while we wait for the film to debut later this year, we have two awesome new posters for your viewing pleasure below.

Crepitus follows:

“Seventeen year old Elizabeth and her younger sister Sam are thrust into circumstances more terrifying than life with their abusive, drunken mother when they are forced to move into their deceased Grandfather’s house. Frightened beyond belief, they are forced to learn horrible things about their family history. Never mind the ghosts in the house, there is something far worse that takes an interest in them … a cannibalistic clown named Crepitus.“

The film also stars Eve Mauro, Chalet Brannan, Lance Paul and Caitlin Williams.

Crepitus is set to debut this fall via Ginger Knight Entertainment. Eddie and Sarah Renner co-wrote the script.

Directer Haifaa Al-Mansour‘s origin story based on Frankenstein novelist Mary Shelley has been brought to life in his new feature film, which comes out in theatres at some point this July in the United Kingdom.

Today, however, we have the official trailer for your viewing pleasure, along with the film’s poster. You can take a look at both of those below.

Synopsis:
“She will forever be remembered as the writer who gave the world Frankenstein. But the real life story of Mary Shelley—and the creation of her immortal monster—is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father (Stephen Dillane) in 18th-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin (Elle Fanning) is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley (Douglas Booth). So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork. Imbued with the imaginative spirit of its heroine, Mary Shelley brings to life the world of a trailblazing woman who defied convention and channeled her innermost demons into a legend for the ages.”

The film stars Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Bel Powley, Douglas Booth, Joanne Froggatt, and Stephen Dillane.

Mary Shelley is due be released in the UK in July 2018.
