Leatherface directors interview Leatherface directors interview: Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury

First off let me say congratulations on the film! It must feel quite special to have been able to premiere ‘Leatherface’ at a festival like FrightFest; what is it about this festival that you think makes it so special for filmmakers and fans alike?

Julien Maury: Honestly, it is the first time we have come to FrightFest. We were just talking with Alan Jones (co-curator of FrightFest) just a second ago. He has screened all of our movies, but we have never come here.

Alexandre Bustillo: (jokingly) Never invited!

Halloween: Rare Interviews With Danielle Harris Resurface

When it comes to iconic scream queens to have appeared in the Halloween film franchise, the first actress to spring to mind will probably be that of Jamie Lee Curtis – and deservedly so. But when it comes to those of us who are more acquainted with the series, there’s another fine talent that none of us can overlook, that being Danielle Harris.

Having originally played the character of Jamie Lloyd in Halloween 4 and 5, she later returned to the franchise when director Rob Zombie rebooted it. That time, though, she played Annie Brackett. All things considered, life turned out well for someone who was a final girl at such a young age.

Now, thanks to Dread Central, a trio of rare interviews featuring Danielle have been unearthed, and each were recorded at different points throughout her career. Suffice it to say, going back and viewing these provides some keen insight,

The Fog Star Adrienne Barbeau Refused To Be In The Devil’s Rejects

One thing that can always be expected in a Rob Zombie film is that he often uses horror genre icons and veterans. A great example of this is his 2005 effort The Devil’s Rejects. The House of 1000 Corpses sequel features appearances from stars like Ken Foree, Michael Berryman and P.J. Soles among others, but it turns out that one very interesting actress actually refused to be in the film – none other than Adrienne Barbeau.

She’s a fabulous scream queen you may recognize from the works of John Carpenter like Escape From New York and The Fog, while she also played a role in George Romero’s Creepshow. But according to Barbeau, who recently spoke with Tom Holland’s Terror Time, she wasn’t too interested in taking on The Devil’s Rejects.

“I’ve turned down myriad roles. Sometimes after reading 20 pages of the script. And especially if

Here’s How Jamie Lee Curtis Was Convinced To Return For Halloween Reboot

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode is horror’s original final girl, having survived a whole film of being menaced by Michael Myers. She’d go on to appear in a few subsequent Halloween movies and, to the delight of fans everywhere, it was recently announced that she’ll reprise the role in next year’s outing.

You might think the actress would have a bit of horror fatigue by now, especially as her character (apparently) died in Halloween: Resurrection, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. In a recent interview with Yahoo, Danny McBride revealed the following when asked how him and David Gordon Green got her to return.

We pitched to Carpenter, and he was into it, which kind of blew David and me away, but I still think nobody was really talking about Jamie… I think everyone was kind of on the mindset of it’d

‘Halloween’ Reboot Timeline Confirmed by Danny McBride
While the Halloween franchise has had its ups and downs in the various sequels and Rob Zombie remakes over the past 39 years, there’s a bright shining beacon of hope in the series at the moment. News of a Halloween remake broke earlier this year, with Danny McBride and David Gordon Green writing the project and Green directing for Blumhouse producer Jason Blum. While the new film has been shrouded in secrecy, there’s a lot to be excited about: Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode; Judy Greer co-stars as Laurie Strode’s daughter; and …

Danielle Harris Gives Her Thoughts On 2018’s Halloween Reboot: “I’m Bummed Out”

Turns out Danielle Harris isn’t a big fan of David Gordan Green’s forthcoming Halloween reboot.

Dubbed a total reinvention of the classic horror series, the director has already welcomed the return of Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer (and Zac Efron, too?), as Green gears up for Laurie Strode’s final confrontation with Michael Myers.

But after four films in the Halloween franchise, Harris admits that the decision to double down on John Carpenter’s 1978 original, thereby ignoring all the sequels that followed, left her feeling “bummed out,” as it essentially rules out a return for either Jamie Lloyd or Annie Brackett.

I’m bummed out. And here’s why I’m bummed out. I’ve done four Halloween movies, and I’m grateful for those movies. I wouldn’t have all of you guys here… if it wasn’t for Halloween. I’m forever grateful and indebted to the Halloween franchise.

Jamie Lee Curtis Teases Her Long-Awaited Date With Michael Myers Next 'Halloween'

Jamie Lee Curtis Teases Her Long-Awaited Date With Michael Myers Next 'Halloween'
You can never stop the unrelenting horror of Michael Myers -- although you can take some adorable fall-themed snapshots with him, apparently.

Jamie Lee Curtis will soon be facing off against the iconic masked murderer yet again, and the longtime adversaries look hilariously chummy in the latest teaser pic promoting the next installment in the Halloween franchise.

The 58-year-old scream queen legend took to Twitter on Halloween day (obviously) to share a surprisingly playful, Pinterest-esque snapshot of her and Myers laying together in some autumn foliage, with her arm bleeding from a sizable slash.

"Some Wounds Never Heal," Curtis captioned the pic. "Michael & I will see you all next Halloween."

Technically, the latest installment in the storied franchise hits theaters on Oct. 19, 2018, but will still be a popular choice for moviegoers when the spooky holiday roles around later in the month.
