The season 1 finale of Westworld was shockingly badass to say the very least, and while there were certain payoffs to various storylines that had been building throughout the first 10 episodes, it also raised a bunch of questions as to just where exactly the story will be heading in season 2. So, in anticipation of this weekend’s premiere episode on HBO, here’s a look at what we know so far about Westworld and what we’re hoping to see during this new season, which kicks off Sunday night at 9:00pm EST.
One of the most exciting genre celebrations in recent years, the Salem Horror Fest kicks off again this October and Daily Dead is thrilled to be a media sponsor of the 10-day event. Following their recent announcement that Blumhouse Productions' Ryan Turek will be this year's keynote speaker, Salem Horror Fest has now announced an "Earthdoom" lineup of environment-themed double features.
With the season 3 finale of Ash vs Evil Dead approaching on April 29th, Starz has announced that they will not be moving forward with a fourth season of the series.
From House of Wax to The Amityville Horror, Heather and Patrick play a frighteningly fun game of "remake roulette" on a new episode of Corpse Club.
If you've enjoyed fighting against the demonic forces l in games like Diablo and Doom, then you might want to gear up your gamer thumbs for Agony, a new survival horror video game that will begin its journey through Hell on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One beginning May 29th:
The amount of auteurs in the fields of film and television is vast, and any time we can glean even a little bit of their process the better we are for it. On April 30th, a new series called AMC: Visionaries: James Cameron's Story of Science Fiction will kick off insightful conversations with influential filmmakers and actors from the realm of sci-fi, including Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ridley Scott, Guillermo del Toro, Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan, and we have a look at several videos from the new series:
Jason Voorhees made Higgins Haven his new playground in Friday the 13th Part 3, and Mezco Toyz has created a very accurate depiction of Mr. Voorhees (interchangeable faces, hands, and all) from the film as the latest addition to their growing One:12 Collective line.

In the new trailer released for Michael Pearce's Beast, can you trust something or someone that seems way too good to be true? Starring Jessie Buckley and Johnny Flynn, Beast will come out in theaters on May 11th.
"Fear what flies" in the official trailer for the new thriller Hover, which is featured in today's Horror Highlights along with US release details for Blanc/Biehn Productions' new movie Altered Perception and details on Nitehawk Cinema screenings for Downrange, with director Ryuhei Kitamura on hand to introduce his latest movie.
Over the years, I’ve been pretty vocal about how much I adore horror comedies, and considering how challenging the world at large has been over the last few years, it’s truly my favorite subsection of the genre to disappear into as of late. There have been numerous brilliant humorous horror movies over the years, but I thought now would be the perfect time to celebrate 10 films from the modern landscape of genre cinema that have not only been largely under-appreciated by fans, but also do a killer job of finding new ways to merge the funnies with the frights.
When he's not clouded by rage, Morgan tries to be peaceful, but sometimes the survivors he encounters on his journey elicit a different reaction. Morgan was forced to use his staff for more than just walking during the intense rooftop battle in the season 4 premiere of Fear The Walking Dead, and a new behind-the-scenes video from AMC looks into the making of the staff-centric scene.
Even humor can survive in the living dead apocalypse... Since the first panels premiered on Daily Dead during the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con, we've been excited to showcase artist Jeff Fuller's living dead comic strip Zomics, which finds the macabre humor in the everyday horrors of a zombie apocalypse. We release a new installment of Zomics every Thursday, and we're excited to share a new panel with Daily Dead readers today!
One of my favorite characters in season 1 of Westworld was Clementine Pennyfeather (played by Angela Sarafyan), an android prostitute who works under the supervision of the park’s madam, Maeve (Thandie Newton), who ends up becoming self-aware, throwing the high-tech attraction into a state of chaos.
Following the well-received world premiere of What Keeps You Alive at the SXSW Film Festival (read Heather Wixson's review here), IFC Midnight has acquired the latest film from Colin Minihan (It Stains the Sands Red, Grave Encounters) for US distribution.
As audience members, we sometimes take for granted what directors can accomplish with proper financial backing for a film. For contemporary studio fare (Andy Muschietti’s IT, for example), having a bigger budget often indicates a studio’s faith in the filmmaker or project, and in the best cases, that confidence translates to the screen, whether in production design, CGI, costuming, or star talent. A bigger budget undoubtedly gives the director more room to groove, allotting him or her more tools to ultimately help manifest their vision into a cinematic reality. And while I surely don’t mean to discredit artists fortunate enough to have millions at their disposal, there’s a certain beauty to the low-budget bravado of movies like Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead and John Carpenter’s Halloween.
