Not got time to trawl the web for all the top horror news of the last week? Well allow me to give you a bite-size breakdown of the all biggest nightmarish news!


IFC Midnight has acquired the rights for the very highly regarded remake of Eli Roth's Cabin Fever. Expect the latest outbreak of the deadly flesh-eating virus next year.
Is it really necessary to remake a film that is just 13 years old and pretty much wrung everything it could from it's not particularly great premise first go round? I'm not convinced, but let's wait and see, shall we?


Titles and synopses have been released for nine of the 10 episodes of Ash vs The Evil Dead.
Read on at your own risk…

Bloody Disgusting has learned that the long-awaited Jeepers Creepers 3  will finally be moving ahead next year, with the following synopsis: 
'Jeepers Creepers 3 will show events on the last day of the Creeper’s twenty-three day feeding frenzy, as the skeptical Sergent Tubbs teams up with a task force hellbent on destroying the Creeper for good. The Creeper fights back in gory glory as its enemies grow closer than ever before to learning the secret of its dark origins.”
Controversial director Victor Salva will return and has said: “Writing and directing a new Jeepers film, the first in over a decade, is incredibly exciting. For me and I believe for Jeepers fans all over the world that have been asking for more.
'What will go before cameras as Jeepers Creepers 3 is a new and terrifying chapter from the Jeepers universe. We are bringing back the Creeper’s truck, and will be addressing the big questions about The Creeper: what it is, where it came from and why it does what it does
'More exciting though, this will easily be the most frightening rollercoaster -ride -of- a-Jeepers film that has been made to date.'
I'm in two minds over JC3 as I love the first film, thought the second was a disappointment and upon learning about Salva's past feel uncomfortable supporting him from now on. What say you?


I loved Trick 'r Treat and now the brains behind the film is bringing us a Christmas horror flick.

The Suspiria remake seems to have found a director, Luca Guadagnino, and rumours suggest he's keen to bring the leads of his last film A Bigger Splash (which went down very well at the Venice Film Festival) to the production.
That means Dakota Johnson, Matthias Schoenaerts, Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton are all tipped to appear.
That's an impressive cast to be sure, but if I'm not sure there's much point in remaking Cabin Fever I'm absolutely certain there's no need to remake a film as iconic as Dario Argento's 1977 classic. I hope I'm wrong. I REALLY hope I'm wrong.

First, up we have The Treatment, a crime thriller based on the best selling novel by Mo Hayder.
Buy it at Amazon here.

Also out this week is the impressive psychological chiller, The Canal from director Ivan Kavanagh.

The fun-looking The Haunting of Borden House goes on sale this week too.
Buy it at Amazon here.

And finally, this week sees the release of Army of Frankensteins which, well, here's the product description: 'Alan Jones is beaten to within an inch of his life by a group of thugs who take him to a mysterious lab where a doctor and his genius assistant experiment on him hoping to create their own Frankenstein s monster. The experiments lead to a void being ripped in space and time, resulting in an army of Frankenstein s from parallel universes being sent back to the 19th century, directly into the heart of a bloody war.' 
Buy it at Amazon here.
