Fresh from the Slab: Horror movie news February 9, 2013 – ‘Riddick’, ‘Cell’, and ‘Devil May Call’


Once again Fresh from the Slab returns to fuel all of your horror movie needs! Take a glimpse at the horror movie goodies below!


Leading man Vin Diesel posted another still from the upcoming David Twohy flick Riddick. The film is set to be released on September 14, 2013.

Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he’s encountered. The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty. The first ship to arrive carries a new breed of merc, more lethal and violent, while the second is captained by a man whose pursuit of Riddick is more personal. With time running out and a storm on the horizon that no one could survive, his hunters won’t leave the planet without Riddick’s head as their trophy.



Tod Williams (Paranormal Activity 2) has been announced at the director of the adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell, which stars John Cusack.   Screen Daily posted that Stephen King and Adam Alleca (The Last House on the Left) penned the script and production is expected to begin this May.

johncusackcellArtist Clayton Riddell had been in Boston negotiating a successful deal to sell his comic book project. His joy at finally hitting it big is shattered by an event called The Pulse which causes all those who were using their cell phones at the time of The Pulse to become zombies attacking and killing anyone in their way. Fortunately for Clay, he does not own a cell phone. In the panic to get out of Boston and find his way home to his wife and son in Maine, he is joined by Tom McCourt, a man he meets in the meleé immediately following The Pulse and a young girl, Alice, who they rescue from being killed by one of the “crazies.” The story follows their terrifying journey, avoiding capture—and worse—by the “crazies” who are beginning to “flock” and are led by one they call Raggedy Man as they attempt to reach Maine and a place called Kashwak which they hope will be their salvation.

But when Sam decides to step down, one of her frequent callers does not take the news well. On her last night on the job, Sam faces a terrifying visit from John (Mane), a frequent caller who feels betrayed by her leaving. But John is no ordinary caller. He’s a sadistic serial murderer she’s unwittingly kept from killing himself for over a year. With only a skeleton crew on the graveyard shift, there’s very little that stands between John and Sam. He’s come for her and won’t let anything or anyone stand in his way. Can Sam survive the longest, darkest night of her life?
