The Predator (Shane Black)
(8/3/2018)

 

We’ve been following Shane Black’s The Predator, which just wrapped filming in Vancouver since the project was first announced in 2016. While we first described the film as a reboot, Black was quick to correct everyone, insisting his chapter in the franchise launched in 1987 was a continuation of the original. But hold the phone; in a recent interview with EW, Keegan-Michael Key (a member of the sizable ensemble cast) threw everything we thought we knew overboard [Follow Link Below].

Halloween (David Gordon Green)
(10/18/2018)

 

Per Dread Central:

It’s not a reboot; it’s not gonna be a rehash,” said writer [Danny] McBride. “It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out. I’d already seen all these movies, but I’ve really been studying them now and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might’ve made. The first Halloween is scary as shit. And the second Halloween is scary, but not as scary. And then from there, it isn’t as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he’s not gonna die. There’s no suspense.

Nosferatu (Robert Eggers)
TBD

Per Variety.com:

The film is currently untitled and will be based on F.W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film, which followed the vampire Count Orlok of Transylvania, who wants to buy a house in Germany and becomes enamored of the real-estate agent’s wife. It was an unofficial adaptation of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” and Werner Herzog directed a 1979 remake.

 

The Grudge (Nicolas Pesce)
TBD

Some grudges never die; Ju-On aka The Grudge franchise is one of Japan’s most enduring horror series with 9 films total, not to mention a gaggle of comics, shorts, and even novels. An American remake launched during the J-Horror craze of the early 2000s was stretched into a trilogy; the first installment was very true to its source material, but the films were never as popular as their Japanese inspirations.

The Crooked Man is Greenlighted

The Haunted Librarian

The Crooked Man is Greenlighted

The Conjuring 2 contained an eerie children’s nursery rhyme, “There Was a Crooked Man.” It’s based on a real person, Scottish General Sir Alexander Leslie (1582-1661). The rhyme is about relations between Scotland and England. In the movie, it played when a children’s toy was wound and displayed a tall, slender hunched man. It was announced last week that the movie The Crooked Man has been greenlighted with pre-production beginning. It becomes the 4th movie spin-off in the Conjuring franchise. Although a tentative release date has not been released, it will follow The Nun, which hits theaters July 2018.

Legends of America ~ Lumber Baron Inn

lumber baron inn-280.jpg

Lumber Baron Inn

Once the home of lumber baron John Mouat in the late 1800’s, this former mansion now serves as an elegant bed and breakfast and event location in the historic Potter-Highlands neighborhood. Not only does it cater to the new traveling public; it is also said to host some lingering spirits who refuse to move on.

The mansion was built in 1890 by John Mouat, a Scottish immigrant who had amassed a fortune in lumber. Between 1889 and 1892, the Mouat Lumber company built over 200 buildings in Denver, helping to transfer the town from a mining camp to the glittering city that it would become. Built along Cherry Creek, overlooking the rowdy mining camp below, Mourat built the “best” building for himself, his wife and five children.

Showcasing his finest “wares” in the 8,500 square foot mansion, each room featured a different type of wood varying from oak to cherry to sycamore, maple and more. With an eye for detail, every fire place mantle included distinct carvings and fine details. Wood in the dining room included numerous carved rosettes representing the varied species of trees used in the guest rooms, each which had its own private bath and a phone. The third floor, which the Mouat’s utilized to host lavish parties, featured a 20 foot pyramid ceiling and a shining maple floor. It was the largest and grandest house in the neighborhood.

Alas, like many historic buildings, the mansion passed through a number of hands through the decades until it finally was nothing more than a run down tenement building. It was during this time that a terrible event occurred – the murder of two young women.

In 1970, a 17 year-old runaway girl who was living in the building was brutally raped and strangled to death. Shortly afterward, her 18 year-old friend had the unfortunate timing of stumbling upon the murder. The killer then shot the second girl. The murder, which remains unsolved, is allegedly blamed for the paranormal activity that takes place in the building today.

By the 1990’s the building was in such terrible shape that the city had condemned it. However, in 1991, the once glorious structure was saved by Walter and Julie Keller. Fully restored today, the Kellers went through the long and tedious process of removing the many years of neglect and restoring the building’s original grandeur. Today, it serves as the Lumber Baron Inn & Gardens, one of Denver’s most beautiful examples of Queen Anne architecture, and plays host to weddings, murder mystery weekends and overnight guests.

Since it has re-opened, the Inn has experienced a number of haunting incidences, including sightings of a young woman. Often, phantom footsteps are also heard.

Investigated several times by paranormal groups who have used Electronic Voice Phenomena (EVP’s), some have said they were able to contact the two murdered women, who, although relaying their horror, have obviously not given enough clues to arrest a killer. The murder investigation continues.
