Run Rabbit Run
Sarah Snook has replaced Elisabeth Moss in the lead role of Run Rabbit Run, a horror-thriller from director Daina Reid about “a fertility doctor whose firm grasp on the cycle of life is put to the test as her young daughter begins to exhibit increasingly strange behavior.” According to Deadline, Moss was forced to exit the project due to “scheduling reasons.”
Where Evil Lurks
Variety reports Shudder has acquired Where Evil Lurks, the latest horror film from Terrified director Damien Rugna. The story is said to “unspool in a remote village where two brothers find a demon-infected man just about to give birth to evil itself. In a time when exorcism look to be of little use to ward off evil, after warning the neighbors in town, they decide to get rid of the man but merely succeed in helping him to deliver the inferno.” Click through for concept art of the film’s monster.

In conversation with Collider, Zachary Levi stated he believes Shazam: Fury of the Gods is an inarguably “better” movie than its predecessor.
I will say that I genuinely — and this is not just lip service — I’m really proud of the first one, I think we made a really, really good movie. I think the second one is better. I think that we had more time, we had more budget. We had, essentially, the entire cast returning, and we all knew our characters a little bit more; we could kind of sit into them a little bit more. Henry Gayden, who wrote the first script, wrote the second, and he did a fantastic job doing so.
Everything just clicked even a little bit more and a little bit more. And also the kids have grown up a little bit more, so even the sensibilities of them become even slightly more mature which brings it closer to my or other people’s adult minds, so there’s even more connection there, I think. The action’s great, the comedy’s great, the relationships are great. The bad guys, Helen Mirren and Lucy Liu, are fantastic. I’m very proud of it. I want it to come out sooner than June of 2023.
In a recent interview with Total Film (via Syfy), Scream 2022 director Tyler Gillett confirmed at least a few of the new characters will survive the film and could potentially return in Scream 6.
This new cast of characters is so wonderful. The legacy cast, they’re so wonderful. I think what we discovered, and what [screenwriters] Guy [Busick] and James [Vanderbilt] did, is they found a real reason for the next story to exist. We know that there is more gas in the tank. There are more stories to be told in Woodsboro, and about these characters, for sure.

Elsewhere, a new set video sees the crew of Hocus Pocus 2 singing “For She’s a Jolly Good Fellow” to Better Midler on her birthday.
According to Spoiler TV, creepy baby show Servant has been renewed for a fourth season at Apple TV+.
In conversation with Fandom, Don Mancini appears to confirm Glen/Glenda (Billy Boyd) will appear in the second season of Chucky.
This is probably one where I’m not allowed to say too much, but I love those characters. I think it’s probably safe for me to say that you haven’t seen the last of them.
In the same interview, Mancini also stated actress Perry Reeves is interested in reprising her role as Kristen de Silva from Child’s Play 3.
Perrey Reeves is down for coming back! I haven’t talked to Perry Reeves in a long time but I really liked her. She was cool back in the day and she just seems super nice. And I saw she recently posted something where fans were asking her ‘Would you want to be on the show?’ and she was incredibly gracious and enthusiastic, saying, ‘Hell yeah I’d like to!’
However, it would seem Mancini currently has no plans for either Andy’s mother, Karen Barclay (Catherine Hicks), or Mike Norris (Chris Sarandon), the cop who originally killed Charles Lee Ray.
There is some possibility. Do you want to see them?
