The Blair Witch ProjectTHE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT is 20 Years Old!
By E.C. McMullen Jr.
Coming in on the birth of the Internet and the cusp of high speed Internet, THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT became one of the first Internet sensations.

Independent filmmakers marketed themselves and in doing so, beat out heavy studio contenders from Producer Stephen Spielberg's THE HAUNTING (with then A-List actors like Liam Neeson and Catherine Zeta-Jones. A young Owen Wilson also starred and was only beginning to make his mark.) to Producer George Lucas' first installment of his prequel trilogy, STAR WARS: The Phantom Menace (starring then A-List actors like Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, and Natalie Portman).

Yet even the then mighty Star Wars juggernaught wasn't as profitable as THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT.

Back in 1999, this was the take of the infant Feo Amante's Horror Thriller on THE BLAIR WITH PROJECT.

'Halloween' Sequels Start Filming in September; David Gordon Green Talks Ending the Laurie/Michael Saga

By Adam Chitwood
Last week, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions dropped a pretty exciting newsbomb: two new Halloween sequels will be released in 2020 and 2021, titled Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. The films will see the return of director/co-writer David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride, who were the architects of 2018's successful Halloween sequel. That movie saw the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, who banded together with her daughter (Judy Greer) and granddaughter (Andi Matichak) to fight off the return of Michael Myers.

George Miller Looks Back on 'Mad Max: Fury Road,' and Forward to More Furiosa
By Anne Thompson
In the four years since "Mad Max: Fury Road" wowed moviegoers and Academy voters alike, grossing $370 million worldwide and racking up 10 Oscar nominations (including Best Picture and Best Director), George Miller's demented fever dream of a movie has assumed iconic status. Several major filmmakers have admitted replaying the picture over and over in order to figure out just how Miller did some of the shots, while countless cinephiles have returned to the movie time and again just to bask in the scale of its post-apocalyptic insanity, and to gawk at the high-speed chase sequences that defied everything people thought possible of contemporary action cinema.

When people fondly reminisce over the Horror and Science Fiction movies of the 1980s, ROBOCOP is there, living in their top ten forever.

Writer and Director Paul Verhoven had other hits, but he never made the magic that was ROBOCOP. As the poor 2013 sequel proved, no one else has the ability to capture that lightening in a bottle either.

Video Interview: Producers Craig Flores and Sam Raimi for CRAWL
By Sarah Musnicky
Nightmarish Conjurings got to take part in the press junket for Paramount's CRAWL, which is now available for your creature feature viewing pleasure in theaters nationwide. Kicking off the beginning of the press junket, we got the opportunity to learn a little bit more about alligators at the Los Angeles Zoo. We learned about how male alligators like Reggie, the male alligator currently at the zoo, grow in size (which apparently has a heck of a lot to do with hormones when female alligators are present). We also got to witness the alligators get fed and see Reggie, in particular, munch down on some giant rats. Make sure to check out our gallery below to take a look at the photos from the feeding.
