‘Jumanji’ Tops the Box Office, ‘Insidious’ Debuts Strong

It was a big weekend for The Rock at the box office, and a big weekend for the one debuting release. Here’s what went down:

After a few weeks of acting the bridesmaid, this weekend Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle was the bride of the box office, bringing in an estimated $36 million and raising its total to a fantastic $244 million. Can someone say sequel?

Debuting in second place, and overperforming, was Insidious: The Last Key with $29 million. $7 million more than the third instalment made when it opened in June of 2015. Reviews were decent for the film, and its PG-13 rating certainly didn’t hurt.

The Week in Horror: Scream, American Horror Story + more

The Ghostface killer is coming to video games, American Horror Story looks to the future, and lots more, as we take a look at some of the biggest stories from the week in horror.

Scream video game on the way?

It’s been more than 20 years since the Scream franchise entered the world, and now an industrious video game creator is hoping to bring the series to consoles and computers. According to Scream: The Video Game’s lead developer Brandon D. Santos,:

Scream: The Video Game is an asymmetric survival horror online multiplayer video game being developed by various independent video game developers – in association with Dimension Films, Miramax, Fun World, and MTV. It is the first and only commercial video game adaptation of the Scream horror films and TV series. One player takes control of the Ghostface killer, a masked psychopath whose true identity is hidden behind a rubber mask and black robe. The rest of the players control Victims. The goal of the game is to survive as long as possible while trying to determine the killer’s true identity. That’s about all we can tell you right now, as we are in the early stages of development. We appreciate your interest in the game and stay tuned for updates! 

A Kickstarter begins February 18th to support the game’s creation. You can find out more about Scream The Video Game here. Read the rest of this entry
