Not knowing much about the source material myself, I didn’t mind the 1997 film Spawn too much, though the animated TV mini-series that came soon after was far superior. Ever since the 1997 movie, generally regarded as a very poor translation of the Image Comics anti-hero and his world, creator Todd McFarlane has been going on about a new film which will right the wrongs of the first. In 2009, he actually stated he was negotiating to write and direct the effort himself, but nothing materialised. However, on AMC’s Geeking Out, he stated that it’s still coming.

“It’s not going to be a continuation. It’s not going to be a sequel. Scrub the first movie. It’s going to be a dark, R-rated, scary, badass sort of script. It’s not a nice, polite PG-13.”

That’s all he said though. No concrete details of a film actually going to be made. One has to admire his perseverance though, and it seems a bit more possible that it may happen now since the commercial success of the ‘R’ rated Deadpool. I wish him luck. Anything to help break the monotony of all this Marvel vs. DC stuff.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
