Wes Craven 1939-2015 – RIP

by on Aug.31, 2015, under Other Musings

I’ve said so many things about Wes Craven here. I’m not going to repeat myself, but please check out my Craven week from the project or search all references here. I think i covered all of his work as far as i can remember. He was the ultimate horror director, proficient, consistent and ground breaking, who reinvented horror several Craventimes during his career trying various avenues to scare an audience, some worked, others didn’t but he took those chances. He also championed women in cinema. Chainsaw’s too! Was he the first horror director to use a chainsaw as a weapon? Today is a very sad day, the day we have lost a huge talent. He’ll always be in my dream’s bringing me nightmares. RIP

Legacy – TV Series

by on Aug.21, 2015, under Other Musings

Here at 365Horror, we thrive on new talent and the exciting projects that might just be the next big, original, horror thing. One such project which has been brought to our attention is Legacy – a UK produced, post apocalyptic drama, set six months after a Z incident, written by the very talented Jay Podmore.
Legacy 02

So, what makes this different from all the other Zombie things filling our screens? Well, we’ll just have to wait and see, but from the shows website blurb, it sounds like this could be quite dark and juicy. We’ll let you know more, as and when, as we’ll be watching progress quite closely. I have a good feeling about this, but be sure to follow via Facebook.

Here’s the info:-

Civilization is plunged into darkness, as mankind faces extinction after a world changing, apocalyptic disaster, written by Jay Podmore, UK television series Legacy follows the adverse story of a tightly knit group of survivors, six months after the Earth shattering event.

The deafening silence of a decaying society is slowly twisting the balance of humanity, Isaiah, played by Gabriel Paul, will fight for survival, no matter the cost, whilst leader of the group Ethan, played by Neal Gavyn, is desperately clinging on to the hanging thread of morality, Ethan does everything in his power to protect his people but the group discover that a new evil walks among them and darkness begins to consume all hope. Also starring: Sara Woodruff, James Ledsham, Michael Hawkins, Katie King, Sam Walton and Jason Ricketts. Guest stars include: Niall Hogan, Nick Sheedy and Mikey Chartrey.

The Thing 2011 – Work Print Petition

by on Aug.21, 2015, under Other Musings

Am i the only person that enjoyed this film? Mathijs van Heijningen Jr’s prequel to Carpenter’s classic Snowy Alien film. Well, maybe things are gonna change a little. Horror fan, Aidan Cosky, has launched a petition asking CEO of Universal, Ron Meyer, to release a work print which includes all original SFX created by Amalgamated Dynamics. (The company behind the awesome Harbinger Down)  The story goes that the work print was hated by the films producers upon early viewings and the majority of the FX were replaced with CGI. (These were quite sympathetic in my opinion, but i’m always in favour of seeing some real creativity in the form of FX)

But you will need to wait a while as, if this petition is a success, the proposal is for a 10th Anniversary release which, if my math is correct, leaves us waiting until 2021. Yikes… can i really wait that long? Why not release it prior? Either way, check out the blurb here, and take a look at the clip showing some stunning FX work by Amalgamated Dynamics. Maybe you should also give the current version another look too…
