Of all the films a studio could possibly remake, why The Craft? The ‘90s cult horror favorite is beloved not particularly because it’s a great movie, but because it’s a wacky and wild movie about witches with edgy fashion sense before Hot Topic ruined everything — it’s like Cruel Intentions, but for goth girls. But there are a few reasons that a remake of The Craft makes sense, given current film trends, and at least Sony has assigned a great director to the project.

One of our most anticipated upcoming projects is Nicolas Winding Refn’s The Neon Demon, the director’s follow-up to Drive and Only God Forgives. In keeping with the aesthetic of those films, the first images from his new horror project feature a lovely Elle Fanning doused in neon lighting and dripping with blood. It’s almost too painful to know we probably won’t see this movie until 2016.
Universal and Legendary have released the second full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak, the director’s new gothic ghost story featuring Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain and a whole lot of crimson on snow — that actually might be the most striking image in the entire trailer.
That Natalie Portman sure is keeping busy with one badass schedule. In addition to the recent news that Portman will portray a young Ruth Bader Ginsburg (aka the Notorious R.B.G.) in On the Basis of Sex, the actress has also lined up another project: a French period ghost story titled Planetarium, in which she’ll co-star with Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of — oh, like we need to tell you.
When The Omen sequel series was first announced, the plan was for Damien to premiere on Lifetime, where he would presumably help keep The Lizzie Borden Chronicles company. Recently, Damien moved over to Lifetime’s partner network, A&E, which seems like a better fit for the horror series alongside Bates Motel and The Returned. To celebrate the impending return of the spawn of satan, A&E has debuted the first, brief teaser for Damien, promising a much more grown-up little devil.
A new, full trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak will arrive online tomorrow morning, but we’ve got some things to help keep you patient until then. Universal and Legendary have dropped a few gorgeous, haunting new images from the film featuring Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain and Mia Wasikowska. As an added bonus, there’s also a new motion poster, too.
We’ve heard rumors for some time now about another installment in the 28 Days Later franchise — one that, in keeping with the escalation of the title 28 Weeks Later, would be titled 28 Months Later. There hasn’t been much movement on the latest chapter in the series, but that may be changing very soon, according to Ex Machina director Alex Garland, who penned the screenplay for 28 Days Later.
Arrow Season 3 will wind down this week as Constantine frantically scours the tube for a new home after its NBC cancellation, but could the two end up intertwined? Stephen Amell has expressed an interest in doing a crossover with DC’s demon-fighting detective, which apparently has almost come to fruition before.
The Bates Motel has once again closed up shop for another season, and with it Norma and Norman inched ever-closer to their Alfred Hitchcock Psycho roots. Season 3 finale “Unconscious” put a major nail in the coffin, killing off a character present since the very pilot, and simultaneously paying major homage to the classic film, but has A&E’s horror-thriller finally jumped the gun?
Apart from its status as a prequel “companion series,” AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead spinoff has proven pretty tight-lipped for a series whose characters will have faces torn apart before long. Now, AMC has lifted back the veil just a bit, showing off the start of production in a new behind-the-scenes video to make us Fear the Walking Dead once again.
