Welcome to our latest horror round-up! We have news on Blumhouse Productions' upcoming family-friendly horror film and the event series adaptation of the massive monster comic book, Enormous, as well as a look at a new Videodrome-inspired poster from Cavity Colors and a special Hollywood screening for the Kane Hodder-starring fright film, Muck.

Blumhouse Family Horror Movie: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Harald Zwart (2010's The Karate Kid, Agent Cody Banks, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) will direct an upcoming, untitled family-friendly horror film from Blumhouse Productions.

Robert Ben Garant (who played Deputy Travis Junior in the Reno 911! TV series and has co-penned Hell Baby and scripted Jessabelle and Blumhouse and Universal's upcoming The Veil) wrote the screenplay for the film, the plot of which has not yet been revealed. Jason Blum produces the project with Jeanette Brill and Couper Samuelson executive producing. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for further updates.

Enormous: Deadline reports that an event series adaptation of Tim Daniel and Mehdi Cheggour's Enormous is in development from 20th Century Fox Television, New Regency Television, and Prime Universe Films. The action-horror graphic novella was originally published in 2012 by 215 Ink and was adapted as a short film from Machinima. The short was directed by BenDavid Grabinski off a script by André Øvredal (director of 2010's Trollhunter). For those unfamiliar with the comic book, here's the synopsis (via Deadline):

"Set in the near future, the comic book series finds the world suffering a planetary resource crisis when a vast ecological cataclysm spawns The Enormous, massive beasts unlike anything ever witnessed. Displaced from atop the food chain, humankind struggles to stave off extinction, and a shattered society scrambles for refuge in the wake of the monstrous rampage. Ellen Grace, a former school teacher who lost everything in the uprising, leads a search and rescue team into the ruins of the city in hopes of locating children orphaned by the cataclysm. But not all the remaining humans seek salvation, and in a world dominated by monsters, man is still the most dangerous animal."

Cavity Colors' Videodrome Poster: Inspired by David Cronenberg's cult classic film, Videodrome, Aaron Crawford's new giclee print will be available beginning this Thursday, along with a re-issue of the New Flesh T-shirt and a limited edition vinyl sticker:

""The battle for the mind of North America will be fought in the video arena — the videodrome. The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye. Therefore the television screen is part of the physical structure of the brain. Therefore whatever appears on the television screen emerges as raw experience for those who watch it. Therefore television is reality, and reality is less than television." - Brian O'Blivion

Coming this Thursday, February 19th at 5 PM (east coast time) we are bringing back the flesh in a big way, with a re-issue of our NEW FLESH T-shirt, a brand new Videodrome inspired poster, and a special limited edition sticker. Info below....
