Synopsis: In THE AUTOPSY OF JANE DOE, two coroners – a father and son – receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. As they attempt to identify the beautiful young “Jane Doe,” they discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets.
The trailer for this one is kind of stingy with what it reveals and I personally think that’s a good thing. I chose it for this week for two reasons: the strength of its lead actors, Emile Hirsch and Brian Cox; and the fact that it is Trollhunter director André Øvredal’s first English language film. Also starring Ophelia Lovibond, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is written by Ian B. Goldberg and Richard Naing. Look for it in theaters and VOD on December 20th. Until then check out the poster and trailer↓.
We turn our attention to the lovely Melissa George. Born August 6th, 1976 in Perth, Australia, she made her genre debut in the action fantasy Dark City in 1998 as well as starring in the TV movie Hollyweird the very same year. 2001 found her in David Lynch’s mystery thriller Mulholland Drive and 2003 found her guest starring in two episodes of the popular TV series Charmed. 2005 saw her as Kathy Lutz in the remake of The Amityville Horror and in 2006 she starred in Turistas. In 2007 she starred in The Killing Gene (aka W Delta Z) and the film adaptation of the popular vampire graphic novel 30 Days of Night. Cut to 2009 and we find her in the horror thriller Triangle. 2011 finds her in the TV adaptation of Stephen King’s Bag of Bones and in 2013 she starred in the TV movie Gothica.
Let us welcome the gorgeous Melissa George as our October, 2016 Written in Blood Scream Queen of the Month!
Star Candace Hilligoss’ agent refused to represent her any further after seeing this film.

I’ve been thinking about posting this short film for quite some time now. Without giving away the ending, which may become obvious to you in the first place, I have one question: Do you feel sorry for the guy? Enjoy.
Synopsis: For 37 years, audiences have followed small town friends Reggie, Mike, and Jody in their quest to stop the evil, dimension-hopping schemes of The Tall Man (Angus Scrimm in his final performance) and his armada of killer Sentinel Spheres. Now, Don Coscarelli’s acclaimed horror/sci-fi Phantasm franchise comes to a close in a truly epic finale, a multi-dimensional battle across multiple timelines, alien planets, and altered realities, where no less than the fate of Earth is on the line.
Are you all as stoked as I am for this one? We’ve waited 17 years for a new Phantasm film (the last film was Phantasm: Oblivion in 1998) so let’s hope that writer-director David Hartman and writer Don Coscarelli come through and deliver to us a Phantasm finale that kicks ass, takes down names and shoves big metal balls with sharp pointy objects down our collective throats. Angus Scrimm aka “The Tall Man” makes his final appearance alongside Reggie Bannister and A. Michael Baldwin. Look for Phantasm: Ravager in theaters and digital HD October 7th.

Originally the film was slated to begin with a scene from the book, in which a young Carrie wandered into the yard next door and found her teenage neighbor sunbathing. Margaret flies out of their home in a rage and scoops up Carrie, who throws a tantrum and summons a rain of stones. This prologue was also shot for Carrie (1976) and wound up being deleted from both versions.
