Well here’s a bit of interesting news, it seems that James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring) is looking bring back everyone’s favorite spooky spider film ‘Arachnophobia’ with a brand new “sequel”. 1990’s family friendly horror flick is one of my favorite, most underrated little Amblin movies. This is great news and Wan’s already eyeing up John Goodman to return in his role of master exterminator Delbert Mclintock to fight another pack of pesky spiders.
If this movie indeed does happen I hope they amp up the spider mayhem ten fold and again incorporate the use of real spiders on set. The main reason why Arachnophobia was so effective was because the real thing is just so much more creepy than CG arachnids. Let’s hope they don’t rely too much on CGI to create the spiders and hopefully there will be yet another even bigger spider to face off against in the end.
This could really be a ton of fun and even though most sites are calling this a reboot Wan’s already confirmed that this will indeed be a sequel. Maybe we could see Jeff Daniels come back too? Either way I think this could be awesome and since the ‘Roseanne’ canceling/controversy it seems Goodman may indeed have the time to come back and kick some spider butt once again….
Step aside Bigfoot you ain’t the only one in the forest with huge feet anymore! You heard that right, Paul Bunyon has gone evil in the new flick “Axe Giant: The Wrath of Paul Bunyon”! As bad as this one looks I’m gonna go ahead and say it’s looking more and more like my kind of flick! This ridiculous plot of an evil Paul Bunyon attacking people on a rehabilitation trip in the wilderness sounds like a heck of a lot of fun. From the trailer it Bunyon looks pretty cool too, with a quick shot of Babe the Blue Ox too it seems the giant is on a rampage of revenge!
Maybe what intrigues me most is the fact that Dan “Grizzly Adams” Haggerty is also starring in this one and nobody knows the wood like ol’ Grizzly! Let’s hope he’s got more than a little cameo, I really enjoyed his performance from the late 1980’s schlock Christmas horror flick Elves and hope we get to see him go one on one against Bunyon. A guy can dream at least right?
Anyway check this out if you’re a fan of American folklore icons gone wrong! DVD/VOD on June 18th!
