The Missing Reel is a compilation of all things horror and what mattered throughout the week. This week we take a look at The Walking Dead invading Universal, a trailer for Eddie The Sleepwalking Cannibal, a Rob Zombie directed commercial and much more.
25th Anniversary ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ Poster
It marks the 25th anniversary for A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors which will get a special screening at the Chinese 6 Theaters in Hollywood. With that, Mad Monster created this very cool poster for the film. Check it out.
Mickey Rourke Returns For ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’
Although he died in the original film that doesn’t mean Robert Rodriguez can’t bring back the tough as nails character for the sequel. Per Deadline, Rourke is currently in negotiations to make his return to Sin City 2 reprising his role as Marv.
“The film is about Dwight McCarthy planing to have his vengeance against the woman who betrayed him, Ava Lord, while Nancy is trying to cope with Hartigan’s death.”
Expected to go into production this summer the film is set for an October 4th, 2013 release.
New Trailer for Horror Comedy ‘Eddie, The Sleepwalking Cannibal’
This new take on the zombie genre looks quite funny and just got picked up for a U.S. distribution by Music Box Films.
The film concerns Lars Olafssen, a man unable to paint without inspiration. He accepts a teaching gig at a small-time art school in Eastern Ontario. Somehow he inherits the guardianship of the offbeat town’s neighborhood weirdo, Eddie. As their unlikely friendship evolves, Lars uncovers a dark, violent secret about Eddie’s nocturnal impulses, and finds himself torn between his duty to his friend and his duty to his art.
‘The Walking Dead’ Announced For Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights
Fans of AMC’s The Walking Dead will be excited to know that you can now experience those undead flesh-eating zombies in person at Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights. There will be a maze called The Walking Dead: Dead Inside as well as a Terror Tram. Check it out.
Rob Zombie Directed Pest Control Commercial
While we wait in agony for Rob Zombie’s latest feature film The Lords of Salem we’ll have to let this ridiculous pest control commercial from Amdro in which Rob Zombie directed. The commercial is pretty awesome and you can definitely see Zombie’s style of filmmaking in there.
‘Grim Night’ Finds A Director
Grim Night was announced a while ago but has never quite gotten itself going. All that is about to change, however, as it looks like they found a director in Dennis Gansel. Grim Night grabbed the attention of people with its pitch trailer which is more or less a promo than a trailer. What makes this particular horror film so intriguing is its story which has a pretty creepy premise.
Grim Night concerns one night out of the year in which everyone around the world locks themselves indoors and fights of “Grims,” creatures known to wipe out thousands of people for inexplicable reasons. The story focuses on one American family and their terrifying ordeal with these supernatural entities.
Heres the pitch trailer:
Horror Icons Turned Into Ice Scream
This is ridiculous and a bit unnecessary but I still find myself wanting one of these. A Russian company created this insane line of popsicles featuring the horror icons of Jason, Chucky, Freddy, Predator, and Pinhead. There isn’t much else to say on the matter, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves…
There you have it, some of the stuff that mattered in all things horror this week. As always, thanks for reading and if you happened to have missed the last edition of The Missing Reel be sure to check it out here:
