Platinum Dunes has done it’s fair share of damage. It crapped out a terrible ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’ not long after stumbling through a reboot of ‘Friday the 13th’, and the studio has been taking popular iconic memories from our childhood and churning out horrendous movies with them.
So, eventually, their work has to be done, right?
Thankfully, mercy has been granted as the company founded by Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller has proclaimed that they are out of the reboot business.
“We’ve rebooted enough,” Fuller said, in an interview with CinePOP. “We’ve done all of our [rebooted] horror movies. We’re not going to be doing that anymore.”
“For us, as a company, we’re always looking for original material” Form added. “And the idea of finding something original was important for us. We made a film where there’s two to three minutes of talking in the movie, where sound is a full character, and it feels like audiences are really responding to those ingredients.”
Their track record with original films is much better than it is with their reboots. The Purge franchise is one example, and A Quiet Place is proving to be another, with the film generating more than $50M domestically over the past wekeend.

‘What We Do in the Shadows’ Season 3 Concludes This Week
A brand new trailer has arrived for the conclusion of Season 3 of ‘What We Do in the Shadows’, which will land this Thursday, October 28th, and is detailed as “The housemates grieve the loss of one of their own.”
Check out a preview for the new episode, called “The Portrait” below, courtesy of FX.
Earlier this year, directory Jaco Bouwer dropped his horror/drama ‘Gaia’, which just made it’s arrival on the Hulu streaming platform courtesy of XYZ Films, kykNET Films, and Film Initiative Africa, as part of their Huluween celebration.
According to the official rundown: “A park ranger takes shelter with two survivalists after an attack by mysterious creatures in a primordial forest.”
This film bursts with colorful and detailed imagery that cast ominous tones, diverse moods, and illustrates a hallucinogenic environment that is filled with unique creatures, and plantlife that takes on a life of their own.
Gabi (Monique Rockman) ventures into this forest and is immediately interwoven into the troubling dynamic of a father and son survivalist lifestyle. Barend (Carel Nel) is more of a deranged preacher high off the mushroom dust that is part of his “faith”, and demands that his son Stefan (Alex van Dyk) live a life that he determines to be pure – a secluded one away from society, reliant on the forest and the worshiping of the forest God.
Gabi attempts to convince Stefan of a world outside of the forest, one where he can grow, learn, and thrive, despite his father’s constant obsession on their forest life. As Gabi grows closer to Stefan, with oddly sexual undertones, Barend becomes more detached and intensely obsessed with the big tree in the forest which is where he makes his offerings, and is the altar for which he prays.
As the forest creatures continue to threaten, and as the forest slowly infects and kills those it selects, Gabi rushes to help Stefan escape to the outside world.
