Sunday - September 12

Paramount has acquired Orphan: First Kill, the upcoming prequel to the 2009 creepy kid film, Orphan.

There is no word yet if Paramount plans to release Orphan: First Kill to theaters, or if they will go the route that seems to be picking up favor and releasing the film via their streaming service. Regardless of how the film is released, Orphan: First Kill will see the return of Isabelle Fuhrman, as she steps back into the role of Esther.

Directed by William Brent Bell and written by David Coggeshall, Orphan: First Kill will also star Julia Stiles, Rossif Sutherland and Hiro Kanagawa, in a prequel that explores Esther's origin and the first family that had to deal with her horrifying antics.


Monday - September 13

That's a wrap! Filming has finished on the new Predator film according to cinematographer Jeff Cutter.

The upcoming film from 20th Century Studios, directed by Dan Trachtenberg and written by Patrick Aison, will take the prequel route for the fifth installment in the Predator franchise, this time telling the story of a Predator's first trip to Earth. Currently titled Skull, the film will star Amber Midthunder, Dane DiLiegro and Kyle Strauts and is slated for a release next year in 2022.

The official trailer for soon-to-come horror flick, There's Someone Inside Your House, has hit YouTube and it looks like a new slasher has entered the game.

Directed by Patrick Brice and written by Henry Gayden, based off the novel by Stephanie Perkins, There's Someone Inside Your House has some serious Scream vibes going for it and that might just turn it into Netflix's next horror hit.
