SPOOKY MOVIE ANNIVERSARIES

CREEPY CLASSICS

 

Want to hear something really scary? A lot of our favorite Halloween movies are old enough to be celebrating their 25th and even 30th anniversaries this year! Aah! Luckily these creepy crawly classics never go out of style, and celebrating their big milestones is a great excuse to revisit the frightening fun.

 

 

Terrifying townsfolk assembling sinister stocking stuffers. Eight tiny skeletons pulling a festive coffin across the sky. A boogying beanbag stuffed with evil bugs.

 

The sights and sounds of The Nightmare Before Christmas have captured our imaginations for 25 Halloweens (and Christmases) and the spookiest season isn’t complete without a holiday visit to Jack Skellington, Sally, and company.

 

 

From the fabulously freaky fashion to the wickedly weird musical number, Hocus Pocus put a spell on an entire generation of Halloween-loving 90s kids.

 

As the Sanderson sisters rise a 25th time to wreak havoc (and shock rock covers) in the cursed town of Salem, we too can experience a mystical blast from the past by watching this cult classic Disney adventure  as we approach Hallows Eve.

 

 

30 years. 7 films. Countless red-headed Good Guy dolls. No matter how many times he’s electrocuted, tossed off a building, or hacked to pieces, Chucky the murderous moppet comes crawling back to terrorize a new generation of doll-fearing horror fans.

 

If it’s been years since you’ve experienced the original unboxing, you can watch Child’s Play for free on Vudu and remind yourself that true terror comes in small packages.

 

 

NEW THIS WEEK: INCREDIBLES 2, BLACKKKLANSMAN, AND MORE

PLUS RENTALS AND MOVIES STILL IN THEATERS

 

HIDDEN HEROES

 

Sometimes saving the day means seizing the spotlight and making a big splash, and sometimes it means righting wrongs from the shadows. This week’s newly arrived heroes are serving up some justice on the down low.

 

 

The year is 2004. Facebook is on its way in, Friends is on its way out, and an unassuming family with secret superpowers has taken the world by storm. Disney•Pixar’sThe Incredibles brought heart, hilarity, and a relatable realism to animated superheroes, and the long-awaited Disney•Pixar’s Incredibles 2 packs everything fans have been waiting for and more, in up to 4K + UHD quality.

 

The Parr family are back and ready to save the day from a mysterious new evil-doer, bring superheroes back from the edge of extinction, and maybe grab some takeout on the way back from soccer practice.

 

 

Sometimes when you’re really excited to meet a new person, you don’t notice the red flags signaling that they might be hiding a secret. For the Ku Klux Klan in 1979, that person was a seemingly enthusiastic new recruit, and that secret was the undercover black police detective pulling the strings.

 

Loosely based on a stranger than fiction true story, BlacKkKlansman weaves a tale of danger, deceit, and discovery as the hunted becomes the hunter.

 

NEW TO RENT

 

 

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again brings us back to the sun, surf, and singalongs that made the original a musical icon. Watch this clip for an exclusive look at the real-life church featured in the films, courtesy of travel blogger @JeanaTravels.

 

 

At the intersection of workplace drama, far-out fantasy, and social satire sits Sorry to Bother You. The post-modern fable depicting one man’s struggle for success is an eye-opening (and eye-popping) original that has to be seen to be believed.

 

STILL IN THEATERS

 

 

The temptation to phone it in on a tough workday can be strong, but when lives hang in the balance every wrong decision could mean tragedy.

The Guilty’s award-winning twists and turns all take place in a single room as an emergency dispatcher desperately attempts to help a stranger, but the consequences of his actions reach far beyond the four walls.

 

 

MONDAY MOVIE NEWS

SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW

 

Hollywood gets a lot of flack for all the sequels, prequels, and reboots, but this week’s top stories have a healthy mix of reimagined classics, anticipated additions, and fresh new fables.

 

TOP GUN 2 WILL BE SCORED BY THE ORIGINAL COMPOSER AND HANS ZIMMER

 

 

Harold Faltermeyer, the composer behind the score of the original Top Gun, and Hans Zimmer are both living legends of movie music, and they’ll be collaborating on the film’s high-flying sequel. With Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer reprising their original roles, movie buffs are in for a blast from the past as they head back into the danger zone.

 

NEW IMAGE OF GHIDORAH FROM GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

 

 

The enormous, Komodo-Dragon-like claw extending into a new image from the upcoming Godzilla sequel belongs to one of Godzilla’s most dreaded foes: the fearsome Ghidorah. The gnarled appendage is all we’ve seen so far of the redesigned, three-headed monster, but it’s enough to have kaiju fans quaking in their boots.

 

LEBRON JAMES SET TO PRODUCE FRIDAY THE 13TH REBOOT

 

 

The 3-time NBA finals MVP may not seem like the obvious choice to bring Jason Voorhees back to the silver screen, but LeBron James has been steadily building up his Hollywood bonafides and is in talks to produce a potential reboot of the hit Friday the 13th horror franchise. If he and the rest of the creative team can get the rights, horror-heads can look forward to a re-vamped slasher coming soon.

 

FIRST POSTER FOR HAPPY DEATH DAY 2 U

 

 

The original Happy Death Day was a high-concept sleeper hit that left audiences wanting more, and they’re about to get their wish. The new poster shows a (presumably) new killer offering the doomed cupcake from the first installment, with creepy foreshadowing aplenty.

 

FIRST TRAILER FOR ESCAPE ROOM

 

 

Horror-themed escape rooms have been a terrifying example of life imitating art for years, and now art is returning the favor in the forthcoming Escape Room. The trailer teases at a wide variety of elaborate, dangerous, and maybe even deadly puzzles to test the wits of the on-screen participants.
