NEWS - SALEM'S LOT
Now give us a trailer!
The Boogeyman has also been rated and was given a PG-13 rating for “Terror, violent content, teen drug use, and some strong language.”
The movie don’t have a release date yet but hopefully that will happen soon. The problem though, might be that it’s been expanded quite a bit compared to the story.
“Still reeling from the tragic death of their mother, a teenage girl and her little brother find themselves plagued by a sadistic presence in their house and struggle to get their grieving father to pay attention before it’s too late.”
Gary Dauberman, the director, is really keen on doing justice to the book. But also, the previous adaptation was a two-parter, because it’s such a hefty book and there are so many different moving parts and so many characters. So there are some parts where Gary had to press and find what was really at the heart of the movie to keep in, but for the most part, he’s really true to the book and keeping a lot of the original dialogue in there. He’s a Stephen King hound dog so he doesn’t wanna do Stephen dirty.
So I think it’s in good hands, Gary’s a really smart guy who has a keen eye for things. I think, not just lean on the jump scares, but lean on the more conceptual and visual things that, rather than a shock that fades out of your body in the next five minutes, something that’s more visual, like an imprint that burnt into your retinas as a disturbing image that you’ll wake up in the middle of the night that you can’t shake out of your head.
One Take News reports that multiple sources have confirmed that Alexander Ward has been cast as Kurt Barlow in the upcoming remake of Salem’s Lot.
Not much is known about the movie and no footage or stills have been released but OTN confirms that the film has been tested multiple times and overall had mostly positive reactions.
The premier is set for April 21, 2023.

Originally set for theatrical release on September 9, 2022, the new Stephen King adaptation was recently bumped to April 21, 2023, and now the film has been undated altogether.
It’s likely that Warner Bros. is trying to figure out what to do with the movie, and whether to bring it to theaters or to streaming on HBO Max. We’ll report more as we learn it.
This is probably not a good sign…
The move itself isn’t a surprice since neither a poster or a trailer has been released but to move it more than 7 months, what’s up with that? Talk about missing the target. Well, hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.

Yesterday the first footage debuted at CinemaCon. This particular footage probably won’t be making its way online, but Bloody Disgusting have some social media reactions that at least help paint a picture of what was shown.
Jordan Preston Carter will play 12-year-old Mark Petrie, Nicholas Crovetti will play Danny Glick and Cade Woodward plays Danny’s younger brother Ralph.
Dread Central also have the first image of the Marsten House.
Isn't Dr. Cody a man some of you might ask? And yes, in the book Dr. Jimmy Cody is a man but I don't see that this change will be a problem for the movie.
Downtown will again be used as a backdrop when filmmakers roll into town in September.
