Jeff Goldblum to Appear in Jurassic World Sequel

10 hours ago

"Must go faster!" A familiar face from the original Jurassic Park trilogy will appear in Jurassic World 2, as THR reveals that Jeff Goldblum has been cast in the sequel.

According to THR, Jeff Goldblum will play a role in Jurassic World 2, the fifth film in the franchise, but it hasn't been confirmed what that role will be.

There are surely many fans who would love to see Goldblum play chaos theorist and stylish mathematician Ian Malcolm, the character from Michael Crichton's novel that he brought to life so memorably in Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park and its sequel, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. Goldblum's infinitely quotable take on Malcolm did not appear in Jurassic Park III, which instead featured the return of Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant and Laura Dern as Ellie.

Goldblum joins a cast that includes Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Justice Smith, James Cromwell, Bd Wong, »

Sex & Death: The Strange Gothic Poetry of Jean Rollin

14 hours ago

The era of cinema referred to as Eurohorror is defined by its eroticism, over-the-top violence, and psychedelic supernatural approaches to storytelling. It’s a rabbit hole of movie culture. There are twisting avenues and bizarre subsections that seem endless, but few filmmakers created a library as compulsively watchable and weirdly hypnotizing as Jean Rollin’s. This man’s filmography is massive, a good amount of them representing his work-for-hire hardcore movies and the cheesier selection of horror films. One gets what one might expect: waif-like young women seducing men, seducing each other, and drinking gallons of bright red blood.

Yet something sets Rollin’s films apart from similar offerings: they’re literate. Rollin draws many of his plots from classic Gothic romances. He must have adapted Carmilla in one form or another a dozen times. Sheridan Le Fanu’s story, about an innocent girl seduced by a lonely but evil companion, »

22 hours ago

The horrors of sleep paralysis are amplified by composer Marc Vanocur's score in the upcoming horror film Dead Awake. Ahead of the film's May 12th release, we caught up with Vanocur for our latest Q&A feature to discuss making the music for Dead Awake and to reflect on his time working as a sound editor on the Tales from the Crypt TV series.

You just finished Dead Awake and are already working on Phillip Guzman's second film, 200 Hours. Had you collaborated with him in the past? Did the film forge the creative partnership?

Marc Vanocur: I hadn't worked with Phil before Dead Awake. We met while working on the movie, got along well, and things just naturally progressed. I think it has to do with the communication than anything else. When you collaborate through a hurdle in a way that is constructive and not offensive, it »

Resident Evil 7 Free Dlc Not A Hero Delayed

22 hours ago

Since early this year, gamers have been able to navigate the horrors of the Baker residence while playing as Ethan in Resident Evil 7, and they've also been able to look forward to a free Dlc called Not a Hero. Originally slated to come out this spring, Not a Hero has now been delayed by Capcom, but for a good reason.

In a new video released by Capcom, Resident Evil 7 director Koshi Nakanishi and producer Masachika Kawata reveal that Not a Hero is being delayed because the free Dlc is not ready to meet the high standards set by the main story in Resident Evil 7, which has received a largely positive reception.

"...in light of the incredible reception to the release of Resident Evil 7, we concluded that this Dlc was not good enough to meet those high expectations," Nakanishi says in the video.

Kawata adds, "Our aim is for this content »

Exclusive Interview: Ernie Hudson Discusses Apb, Ghostbusters, The Crow, and Twin Peaks Revival

24 April 2017 6:12 PM, PDT

You may know him as Winston Zeddmore, Sergeant Albrecht, or even Justin Jones, but right now Ernie Hudson is using his versatile talents in front of the camera to bring the character of Captain Ned Conrad to life on the Fox series Apb. To celebrate the season 1 finale of the high-tech yet emotionally grounded police series, I had the great pleasure of speaking with Hudson about his new show, and we also had the chance to talk about his desire to play Winston once again in the world of Ghostbusters, why he doesn't plan on returning to The Crow franchise, and his secretive time on the Twin Peaks revival.

Congratulations on Apb, one of many projects that you have going on at the moment. The show is unlike anything else on television right now and I think it's really relevant, too. How did you get involved with it initially and »

24 April 2017 5:11 PM, PDT

Psychopaths, the latest film from writer/director Mickey Keating, recently enjoyed its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival. Daily Dead had the chance to speak with Keating and Psychopaths co-stars Ashley Bell and Larry Fessenden, and the trio discussed reteaming for their latest collaboration (both Bell and Fessenden were in Keating’s previous genre effort, Carnage Park) and what fans can expect from Keating’s latest slice of horror-fueled fun.

For those who may miss out on Psychopaths during Tribeca, the film heads to The Overlook Film Festival later this week.

Great to speak with you today, guys, and I can’t wait to see the movie. So, Mickey, can you discuss what inspired you this time around? From what I've seen from the clips and different publicity materials, this feels like a complete 180 from Carnage Park and your other previous projects.

24 April 2017 10:42 AM, PDT

Taissa Farmiga's sister Vera plays paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring films, so it's rather fitting that Taissa is now set to play a lead role in The Conjuring 2 spinoff film, The Nun.
