The Invisible Man First Reactions Are In: Best Horror Remake in Years?
The Invisible Man held its world premiere last night at the world famous Tcl Chinese Theatre in the heart of Hollywood, and it did not disappoint the crowd in attendance, which included star Elisabeth Moss and director Leigh Whannell, along with plenty of their famous friends and co-stars. There were plenty of big scares, a great score by Benjamin Wallfisch, and a great affection for the material, which brought in nods from the original while also playing sly homage to more recent thrillers like Sleeping With the Enemy and even Predator.

The Invisible Man is Blumhouse's first take on reviving the classic Universal Monsters after Dark Universe failed to properly reboot the franchise with Tom Cruise's The Mummy. Where that was a bombastic rollercoaster ride jam-packed with effects, this new remake of The Invisible Man takes a scaled down, refined approach that is all about atmosphere and scares. It manages to build tension throughout,

Alain’s Top 25 Christmas Movies!

  • Nerdly
I absolutely love Christmas and the films made for it! I’ve had a hard time compiling just twenty five movies for my favourite festive films ever. But here is my list. Disagree with any of it? Have I missed out any of your favourites? Follow Nerdly on social media and let us know.

1. Home Alone

Not just my favourite Christmas movie but one of my favourite movies ever. A family somehow manage to go away for Christmas and leave their son behind home alone, while at the same time a pair of burglars are scanning that area ready to take as much as they can.

I smile from beginning to end watching Home Aloen and it’s one of those films that works just as well watching it as a child or an adult. Malculay Culkin is perfectly cast because the character should be annoying but isn’t at all.

'Jumanji 2' Set for #1 Start Ahead of 'Black Christmas' and 'Richard Jewell'

'Jumanji 2' Set for #1 Start Ahead of 'Black Christmas' and 'Richard Jewell'
The holiday season is well underway, with Frozen II leading the charge by a wide margin, currently serving as the only holiday release to top $100 million so far. However, Ford v Ferrari should soon reach that milestone and this weekend's release of Sony's Jumanji: The Next Level will also be expected to top that figure and more. This weekend also sees the release of Universal and Blumhouse's holiday horror remake Black Christmas and Clint Eastwood's Richard Jewell, the latter representing yet another adult-targeted feature as several have been released over the last month.

Looking at a #1 finish is Sony's release of Jumanji: The Next Level, the sequel to the breakout hit of 2017, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which debuted just before Christmas two years ago and went on to gross over $400 million domestically, serving as Sony's largest domestic release of all-time. This year Sony is getting an

The Internet’s Freaking Out Over Friday The 13th Before Christmas This Year

The last Friday the 13th was one for the ages. No, we’re not talking about the dreadful 2009 remake of the horror classic. We quite literally mean Friday, September 13th. It was the first spooky calendar occurrence of 2019 and also happened to fall on a full moon, the 50th anniversary of Scooby-Doo and the day that fans celebrated the long-running series Supernatural.

For those who might’ve missed AMC’s all-day Friday the 13th marathon though, have no fear, as there’s another haunted holiday right around the corner. Shortly after Halloween, during which folks can experience even more horror on the movie channel, there will be another 13th of the month that falls at the end of the work week.

People online are now realizing that there’s one more Friday the 13th this year and it happens to fall in December, just a little less than two weeks before Christmas.

Why Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Isn't a Traditional Horror Anthology

Why Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark Isn't a Traditional Horror Anthology
Producer Guillermo del Toro and director Andre Ovredal's upcoming adaptation of Alvin Schwartz's kid's horror book series Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark will be unleashed upon the masses next month. I don't know about you, but I'm super excited to see what Del Toro and company have in store for us with this new flick.

And today we have word that over the weekend at Comic-Con, Guillermo del Toro explained why the upcoming family-friendly horror movie isn't taking the anthology route. And it makes a whole lot of sense. Del Toro explains this.

"When we started talking about this about five years ago, I had to think about it. Anthology films are always as bad as the worst story in them - they're never as good as the best story. Then I remembered in 'Pan's Labyrinth,' I created a book called the Book of Crossroads.

It's the Most Terrifying Time of the Year: Blumhouse Is Rebooting Black Christmas

Ho ho ho, merry nightmares! Scary movie powerhouse production company Blumhouse is venturing into holiday horror with a reboot of Black Christmas, which is likely the best gift horror movie fans could ask for come Dec. 13.

Blumhouse recently dusted off the classic slasher Halloween with 2018's stellar remake and has a modern-day take on The Craft on the way with writer/director Zoe Lister-Jones attached, so seeing another reboot on its list makes sense. Though, technically, the 2019 edition of the film is a reboot of a reboot, since the 1974 original was already updated in 2006 for a version starring Katie Cassidy, Michelle Trachtenberg, and Oliver Hudson.

Drive Time Review: 'Godzilla: King of the Monsters'

  • CineMovie
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is the Godzilla movie we've been waiting for. Directed by Michael Dougherty (Krampus), he shows great respect for the king of the monsters and incorporates a lot of the history of the Toho Godzilla movies. A true fan will recognize all those nods and enjoy the movie. Although you're not as invested in the human characters except for Millie Bobby Brown's character, and the family drama, we're there for the monster mashup.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters opens to $179 million worldwide

Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures unleashed the Titans this weekend with the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the latest chapter of the shared MonsterVerse debuting the $179 million worldwide.

Domestically, King of the Monsters earned $49 million to dethrone Aladdin and claim top spot, although its opening weekend was down significantly from 2014’s Godzilla ($93 million), along with 2017’s Kong: Skull Island ($61 million).
