Now that 2020 is stem-rolling us all with numerous things to do, places to go and movies to see, I wanted to remind you all that there is a horror version of the classic “Fantasy Island” series opening up in the coming weeks. It’s a Blumhouse production care of Sony Pictures, and I shared the first trailer HERE if you didn’t see it. The “final trailer” has just been revealed but you completists might want to watch the both of them and we sure don’t mind some extra time on the website. I’ve followed said new trailer with the premise, an updated casting and the theatrical release poster. Have at it.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Creepy stuff for sure. Creepy stuff. If you looked carefully at the theatrical release poster you should also be able to see a screaming head. Brrr. I tell you that I am much more curious about this one than I was back in November, but now my Toy Fair plans are busy being set up and I generally like to have some content posted in advance to show up while I am busy away all day. This really looks interesting and I hope that it does well. I guess the only competition this more Geek Culturized film will have to deal with is the soon to open “Birds Of Prey” film from Warner Brothers. That one I will be able to see since it opens next weekend when I still have some wiggle room. Closing up, what did you think of this brand new and final trailer? Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
