i0n1rblutke8ea

Hot on the heels of OCULUS director Mike FLANAGAN is keeping the ball rolling as it was announced that he will take the helm of the film adaption of Stephen King’s GERALD’S GAME.

alien___h_r__giger_pitch___by_adonihs-d2xjobm

To say that H.R. Giger was influential in the horror arena is like saying the sun is influential in the heating of the earth.

We know that Lange returns in Oct. We also know that this year will be a circus theme and now thanks … Continue reading
