Filming has wrapped on Megan Fox’s new horror Till Death, and a series of first look photos have provided a pretty good idea of what’s in store. Spoiler alert: There’s a lot of blood.

The movie, from director S.K. Dale, follows Megan’s character Emma as she’s left handcuffed to her dead husband as part of a twisted revenge plot; with two hired killers on the way to finish the job, she must find a way to survive.

Millenium Media have shared a few intriguing stills from the movie with Collider, which depict Megan’s character covered in blood and, as expected, chained to her dead husband. We can’t wait to see how she gets out of this one.

The Jason Carver-penned script previously earned a coveted spot on the Blood List, a spin on the Black List that shines a light on some of the best-unproduced horror and thriller screenplays. Perhaps the most famous movie to emerge from this list is Netflix’s horror hit Bird Box.

It’s also worth pointing out that the movie bears more than a passing resemblance to Stephen King’s Gerald’s Game – which received a critically-acclaimed adaptation for Netflix in 2017 – so we’re interested to see which direction Till Death goes in.

Megan will be joined by a talented cast including Eoin Macken, Aml Ameen, Callan Mulvey and Jack Roth in the movie.

Megan Fox makes a return to horror

This isn’t the first time Megan has gone down the horror route, as she previously starred in the 2009 feminist horror-comedy Jennifer’s Body. It underperformed at the box office, but went on to gain a deserved cult following.

Addressing the movie’s box office performance in a recent interview on Eli Roth’s History of Horror podcast, Megan argued that the movie “never really stood a chance” because of the way she was portrayed by the media.

″I was being vilified a little bit when the movie was getting ready for its release,” she said. “It was that interesting juxtaposition to shooting up to extreme heights of fame right before the movie was released and then … the tearing me down was starting to happen.”

Spider-Verse producer wants Spider-Man: Miles Morales glitches in sequel

The transformational glitches in Spider-Man: Miles Morales are pretty hilarious. So hilarious, in fact, that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’s producer, screenplay and story writer, Phil Lord, wants to use them in the hit movie’s sequel.

Lord and his filmmaking duo, Christopher Miller, are no strangers to animation or comedy. With titles like Spider-Verse, Lego Movie, and 21 Jump Street under their shared filmmaking belt, it’s no wonder that the two are unafraid of getting a little weird with the animated Spider-Man flick’s sequel.

And if you want inspiration for red and blue weirdness, look no further than the Miles Morales game. Playable on PS4 and PS5, the title has apparently been a massive success, with 97 percent of Google users enjoying it. While people are typically annoyed with launch day bugs, the issues with this one are just too funny to chastise. 

With weird, viral videos of players transforming into various inanimate objects, it was actually a transformation of a patio heater that caught Lord’s eye. Now, it appears that “Heater Parker” could become a reality in Spider-Verse 2.

Since the original Spider-Verse movie was chock-full of absurdities and goofy odes to different genres or pop-culture references, invoking a video game’s glitch should be no problem. And, as far as content goes, few things evoke comedic surrealism as much as a patio heater using a web to swing from building to building in New York City.

For Lord, at least, the randomized development mistake appears too funny to ignore as film inspiration: “We’re putting this in Spider-Verse 2 if we have any self-respect at all.”

Hopefully, he and Miller have as much self-respect as the title’s developers, Insomniac Games, have humility. In response to Lord’s tweet, which has since gone viral, the game’s makers couldn’t help but acknowledge their imperfections with a pun.

While we were under the impression that patio heaters were meant to heat patios, not hearts, the Insomniac reflection remains accurate: this silly, inanimate object glitch is “equally as embarrassing as it is heartwarming.”

But, above all else, they’re just funny. It could legitimately be one of gaming and cinema’s greatest, most randomly inspired crossovers if Spider-Verse 2 involves an alternate dimensional Heater Parker.
