Rawhead Rex

Speaking with The Dark Side Magazine, George Pavlou, director of the 1987 Rawhead Rex movie, revealed he plans to reboot the film after recently re-acquiring the rights to Clive Barker’s story.

We might reboot Rawhead Rex. After 30 years and with the film finally out on Blu-ray and the fans so enthusiastic for it, well, it’s just pleased me enormously. For years I’ve been watching this horrible degraded, nasty 4×3 format version on YouTube and it was just depressing me so I spent ten years trying to acquire the rights in order to get the full wide screen negative sourced copy out there.

John Carpenter’s Tales for a Halloween Night

In a recent interview with Comic Book, Stormy Kings Productions president Sandy King confirmed the planned John Carpenter anthology series has been canceled at Syfy.

We had one [project] where Syfy wanted Tales for a Halloween Night but it quickly became evident that they just wanted the title. And I really saw a disaster on the horizon. So I went, ‘No, no, no. This is not a good idea.’ It was a greenlit series but if it’s not gonna be something cool for the fans and for the eventual audience, then I don’t think it’s a good idea to do it.
