And this was also the inspiration of Blah Blah Blogs, to be that moment of eureka in the most unconventional sense.

Master of Horror James Wan Produces "The Curse of La Llorona"

Image
One of the most iconic and widely known figures in Mexican folklore, La Llorona – and her terrible, eternal hunt for children’s souls to replace the ones she drowned in life – has fueled the nightmares of generations of kids and left her mark on a vast swath of Latin America.  Her story has taken on a life of its own through centuries of tellings.  And though it twists and turns along the way, in every form and any language, one thing remains constant:  it still scares the living daylights out of anyone who hears it.
“When I first came to America, one of the first stories that people would come up and tell me was the legend of La Llorona,” says James Wan, producer of the upcoming “The Curse of La Llorona” from New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures.
“People see my movies and guess that I love ghost stories – and they’re right – but La Llorona is so much more,” continues Wan.  “It hits you at the deepest levels of horror and touches on fears you didn’t even know you had.  You understa…

Hellboy - New Story Blazes With Reboot

Image
Hellboy was an interesting superhero character which had its own film back in 2004. From there he has become the unconventional hero who despite of his looks and origin, would still choose to be good and save the world.

With the announcement of a reboot film came with some concerns if it was necessary and if would be effective. However, since it has been more than a decade since the last film, the clamor to have a new one rose and supporters grew with the idea. Now playing the hell-born demon is David Harbour from Stranger Things which also deals with the paranormal entities affecting the town. But Hellboy is far more complicated and more sinister which makes it a big deal.

This retelling of the story of Hellboy allows to make changes with the characters based on the comics where it originated. With ths version, it becomes more R-rated with gore and violence as integral part of the story. It was kinda shocking compared to the original which makes it own charm to the viewers.

Pet Sematary - Another Good Stephen King Adaptation?

Image
After the success of Stephen King's "It", it was expected that another work of his would me remade again for this generation. Pet Sematary was one of them and was announced soon after.  The original movie was launched in 1989 and it is just in time for the 30th anniversary for the new adaptation to the wicked story.

I have not seen the first film, and have not read the book, which makes this my first impression for this story. Though the story can be adjusted to the modern times, it is important to know what or who is the real evil here. 

The story deals with the Creed family who moved from the city for the rural life to take it slow. But evil lurks everywhere in a Stephen King setting, one of kids Ellie found the Pet Sematary while lurking in the woods, she met Judd who knows the dark secrets of the "semetary" and beyond. To make the story short, someone will die, and they will come back to life in not a good way.
