Fresh off the Slab Horror Movie News February 15, 2014: ‘Beetlejuice 2’, ‘Muck’, and ‘Goosebumps’


Fresh off the Slab is here, bringing you the latest in horror movie news. Some filming rumors, casting news, and an interesting little trailer await! Check it out!

Beetlejuice 2?


During an interview with MTV, Michael Keaton stated that he has been discussing a return to Beetlejuice with Tim Burton. Both are open to a return to the  haunt and his world. Keaton stated:

I’ve emailed Tim a couple of times, talked to the writer a couple of times, but all really, really preliminary stuff until relatively recently. I always said that [Beetlejuice] is the one thing I’d like to do again, if I ever did anything again. But it kind of required Tim to be involved some way or another. Now it looks like he is involved. And without giving too much away, we’ve talked to each other, and emailed each other, and if he’s in, it’s going to be hard not to be in.

How much would you like to see a sequel to Beetlejuice? I grew up with that movie and loved it, and I would love to see a sequel.


Looking like a throwback to slasher films of old (young, attractive twenty-somethings who are being stalked by an blood obsessed killer), Muck looks like a fun ride and has plenty of that sweet red stuff. I think horror fans and slasher fans will agree that this film is full of promise. You can see the newest trailer below.

Kane Hodder, Jaclyn Swedberg, Lachlan Buchanan, Lauren Francesca, Puja Mohindra, Bryce Draper, Stephanie Danielson, Laura Jacobs, Gia Skova and Grant Alan Ouzts star in the film.

After narrowly escaping an ancient burial ground, a group of friends find themselves trapped between two evils, forcing them to fight, die, or go back the way they came.


Dylan-Minnette__140214220417New casting announcement! Dylan Minnette (‘Prisoners’) has joined the cast of Goosebumps. He is joining the recently added Odeya Rush (We Are What We Are) and Jack Black.

Minnette will play Zach Cooper, who moves with his family move from NY to to the idyllic town of Greendale, MD, where his secretive new neighbor turns out to be author R.L. Stine (Black). When the many, many demons in Stine’s mind are set free by Slappy, a demonic ventriloquist’s dummy, it’s up to Zach and Stine’s niece Hannah (Odeya Rush) to put the evil genies back in the bottle.

Deborah Forte and Neal H. Moritz are producing.
