'Walking Dead' Actor Scott Wilson's Death Announced After News Of His Return To The Show
Hershel, a fan-favorite character, first appeared in Season 2 of the series before he was killed by villain the Governor in Season 4. Long gone characters have been known to return from time to time on “Walking Dead,” especially in visions when other characters have died. It’s not known what role Wilson will play in the upcoming season, but a safe bet is probably that it has something to do with Andrew Lincoln’s exit from the show.

The cat came back: First Look at the new movie version of Stephen King's Pet Sematary
Directed by Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kölsch, best known for the 2014 Hollywood horror-satire Starry Eyes, this April 5 film is the latest in a resurgence of King adaptations to follow the monstrous success of last year’s It. Like that tale of Pennywise and the Losers, Pet Sematary is not just based on a best-selling novel but also has an earlier screen adaptation, from 1989, that still leaves a cold spot in the hearts of fans.

Richard Dreyfuss Wants ‘Jaws’ to Be Touched Up With CGI and Re-Released But Let’s Please Not
Look, we get that modern CGI has gotten insanely good – the CG shark in The Shallows, in particular, looks fantastic – but Dreyfuss’s suggestion that the shark in Jaws doesn’t “look as good as the rest of the movie” is indeed kinda blasphemous. As is his suggestion that the *perfect* film could somehow be improved by messing with its incredible effects work.

Robert Kirkman’s ‘Outcast’ Officially Dead at Cinemax
The news comes as a little surprise. Outcast had been on the back burner at Cinemax, with its second season finale airing this summer, two and a half years after it was ordered and about two years after it was produced. The options on the cast have long lapsed, and everyone had moved on. A few months after Cinemax renewed Outcast for Season 2 in March 2016 ahead of its series premiere, the network overhauled its programming strategy, pulling away from expensive, dark hometown series like Outcast in favor of fun, high-octane, action, pulpy dramas done in a cost-effective way primarily as international co-productions.

Statement Regarding ‘Friday the 13th’ Court Ruling from Franchise Producer Horror, Inc. [BD Exclusive]
“We are disappointed in the court’s ruling and disagree with its conclusion. We are considering our options including an appeal. In the meantime, the court was very clear that its ruling in favor of Mr. Miller is limited to the original screenplay in which Jason’s mother is the killer and that Mr. Miller’s termination notice did not purport to terminate the separate copyright in the iconic supernatural killer who wears a hockey mask. It also does not grant any rights to Mr. Miller that would enable him to use any element of the original screenplay outside of the United States.
“Following the guidelines set down by the Court’s ruling, we intend to aggressively explore many opportunities for new projects featuring settings and characters (including the hockey mask-wearing killer) not included in Mr. Miller’s screenplay, and in fact are currently in development on new projects that are consistent with the ruling which will be announced soon.”

Horror at the Box-Office
As predicted, Venom’s premiere weekend has taken over all comers by breaking the October opening weekend record as it took in over $80 million dollars domestically and an additional $125 million on the foreign market. This is a massive feat not only considering the initial fan reactions to the first released trailer was less than stellar but critics have panned the films severely prior to its release. If I’ve said it once, i’ve said it a million times. I don’t trust trust most critic opinions, especially considering how poorly they’ve treated the horror genre for far too many years.
Coming up next week is the next installment in the Goosebumps franchise as well as a few biopics which may take some attention away from Venom, but I don’t see them doing too much damage, likely leaving Venom once again in the top spot.
