The Purge will go on. Despite chatter ahead of the release of "The Forever Purge," which hit theaters this summer, that the fifth installment would end the long-running franchise, plans have changed.

New Paranormal Activity Movie Will Haunt Paramount+ In October Along With A Making-Of Documentary

Looks like we'll be seeing the new "Paranormal Activity" movie very soon. The horror sequel, which is destined for Paramount+, will drop sometime this October, just in time for Halloween. And Paramount+ will attempt to keep the "Paranormal" love going with a new documentary about the making of the film. Plot details are still lurking in the shadows, but it's safe to assume the film will keep the "found footage" framing going and once again suburbanites dealing with the supernatural.  Just In Tim...

Scott Derrickson's The Black Phone Is "The Scariest Movie" Producer Jason Blum Has Made

During CinemaCon this week, footage from Scott Derrickson's "The Black Phone" gave lucky attendees a glimpse of the Joe Hill adaptation to come. By all accounts, the footage was effective — and it probably helped that Blumhouse head honcho Jason Blum claimed the flick is the scariest film he's ever produced. That's a bold claim, Mr. Blum! The horror film reunites Derrickson with "Sinister" star Ethan Hawke, who this time plays a masked kidnapper with a captive kid in his basement.  The Scariest ...

New ‘Paranormal Activity’ Already Finished, Will Reboot the Franchise

If you thought the Paranormal Activity franchise ran its course then you weren’t alone. Even mega-producer Jason Blum said it was tired and done and he built his empire on the back of the crazy profits of those uber-cheap and successful films. So, if you’re surprised that we have another one en route after hearing Blum describe the series as “tired” you’re not crazy. But apparently, it won’t be the same old same old this time. Collider talked with Blum and asked for a Paranormal update and bo...

‘The Forever Purge’ is the Final ‘Purge’ Movie Unless It’s Not, Says Producer Jason Blum

Is The Purge franchise about to purge itself of any possible future installments? Maybe yes and maybe no.

The Purge franchise kicked off in 2013 with a deliciously high-concept film starring Ethan Hawke as a father whose family f...

New ‘Exorcist’ Movie Will be Similar to 2018’s ‘Halloween,’ According to Producer Jason Blum

Sooner or later, someone was going to remake or reboot The Exorcist. The original film remains iconic and just as scary as ever, and while nearly all the sequels (except Exorcist III) have been disasters, that won’t stop Hollywood from going back to this well again and again. Last Christmas we learned that the fright masters at Blumhouse were officially teaming with Morgan Creek for a new Exorcist film, and Halloween director David Gordon Green was in talks to helm.

Dianne Feinstein has a target on her back. Why?

Whither Dianne Feinstein? California’s senior U.S. senator is once again in the center of a media maelstrom — or feeding frenzy — over whether she’ll serve out the remaining four years of her current term. Feinstein, at 87 the oldest senator, easily staved off a much-younger and more liberal challenger, Kevin de León, in 2018. However, her standing in the party eroded as it moved leftward while she remained a pragmatic moderate. Last year, the left hammered her for being too passive during fierc...
