Surprise Teaser Trailer! Ti West Reveals MaXXXine as the Final Installment of “X” Trilogy

Surprise Teaser Trailer! Ti West Reveals MaXXXine as the Final Installment of "X" Trilogy

Well, this was a surprise! Before most of us have even seen the highly anticipated PEARL prequel to Ti West’s “X” film due out September 16th, 2022, the director revealed a third film in the franchise; a direct sequel to “X” entitled MaXXXine is on the way last night after the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of PEARL.

According to the press release, the film is written and directed by Ti West with Mia Goth reprising one of her two roles in X. The film follows Maxine (Goth), after the events of X, as the sole survivor who continues her journey towards fame setting out to make it as an actress in 1980s Los Angeles.

Gotta dig that “Obsession” musical cue in the trailer as I have no doubt, probably holds a mightier significance than just an 80s cold opener intro for a trailer.

PEARL world premiered at the Venice Film Festival to universal acclaim and had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday. The film releases nationwide Friday, September 16. It is a prequel set decades before the grisly events of X, Mia Goth returns as the future psycho-biddy Pearl, here a starry-eyed farm girl with a short fuse and a deadly ambition.

MaXXXine is produced by A24, Jacob Jaffke with Ti West, and executive produced by Mia Goth. Additional producers include Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss.

Nightmare Nostalgia’s 2022 Big Halloween Giveaway!

It’s that time again nostalgic nuggets! A little more than five years ago, I started this blog after writing for various horror outlets as a means to express myself fully as well as a useful therapy tool. Because, hey… nothing makes me happier than talking about Halloween, horror movies, and retro pop culture of yesteryear. Well, maybe except giving away stuff and this year is a doozy! Throughout the year, I scavage through antique, thrift stores, and the internet to find just the right treasures to give to one lucky fan during the Halloween season, and I think I may have outdone myself this time around. Nothing really makes me happier than making other people smile and boy I could use it this time around,

I recently lost my best friend of 14 years, my little old lady and emotional-support animal, Lydia. Things have been very tough for me since having to cope with this devastating loss so with this website reaching a milestone of five wonderful years and over 50,000 followers, I wanted to express my gratitude to those who offered some kind words during this difficult time. The same people who have been following my incoherent ramblings for close to a decade now. So thank you truly from the bottom of my dark heart for that. And with respect, I wanted to dedicate this Halloween haul to the little pup who always sat in my lap while writing these trash articles for you guys.

“Spirit Halloween: The Movie” Trailer Gives Us Our First Spooky Glimpse of the Film!

If you were lucky enough to attend Spirit Halloween’s Grand Opening of their New Jersey Superstore this weekend, you caught a sneak peek of the highly-anticipated trailer for the upcoming movie that centers around everyone’s favorite pop-up Halloween market. Alas, most of us weren’t that lucky but today is our day to see terrifying, over-the-top Halloween animatronics come to life!

Behold, Spirit Halloween: The Movie first teaser trailer!

The film’s synopsis is as follows: “When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night. But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters. The kids embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.”

Starring Christopher Lloyd, Rachael Leigh Cook, Donavan Colan, Dylan Frankel, Jaiden Smith, Marissa Reyes, and Marla Gibbs, Spirit Halloween: The Movie is slated to arrive on October 11, 2022, as an on-demand title.

Can we just petition Spirit to have special screenings at their stores for the Halloween season? Please and thanks.
