I'm late to the game on this one by almost a month but I've come across news that a sequel to Ouija Shark, is in the works by Wild Eye Releasing and Survival Zombie Films.


Writer and star of the first film, John Migliore, returns as writer and star for the Ouija Shark sequel, taking on an additional role; director. The first film followed a group of women who unleashed the spirit of a killer shark, turning to an occult specialist for help in making things right again.


Migliore will be joined by Kylie Gough and Simon Wheeldon from the first film. Newcomer Deborah Jayne Reilly Smith joins the Ouija Shark sequel for a ghostly tale that will more than likely find Migliore's occult specialist, once again battling an ancient killer shark.

Marilyn Eastman, the actress best known for her role as Helen Cooper in 1968's Night of the Living Dead, has passed away in her sleep today—her death announced by her son John on Facebook.

Having had a lot of success in radio prior to her role in Night, Eastman would continue her work in entertainment with commercials, theater and another horror appearance with her husband, in the 1996 film Santa Claws.
