Do you remember a little film from 1949 called Obsession that was rife with murder, lust, and mayhem? No? I didn't think so. Still, that's not stopping Hollywood from remaking it!
One of the more interesting films to cross my path thus far this year is Daniel Myrick's The Objective, which pits a group of Special Ops soldiers led by a CIA operative against a sort of "Bermuda Triangle of ancient evil" in the Afghan desert.
It's been a while since we last spoke about Babysitter Wanted (review). I bet you forgot that it was hitting theatres this Friday!
Bruce McDonald's Pontypool will finally be seeing some Stateside distribution thanks to the good folks at IFC Entertainment who have been steadily giving horror fans good reasons to get excited as of late.
For years and years we've been waiting for some quality Ghostbusters collectibles, and come June 2009 (which happens to be the month of my birthday *hint, hint*) we may just get them!
While speaking with George Romero today about the "Tales from the Darkside" DVD release, I got a quick update on what's been happening with the still not officially titled ...of the Dead.
As we told you a couple of weeks ago, Black Devil Doll is finally coming to the big screen! It'll premiere at midnight on April 17, 2009 (the same weekend as Fango's LA Weekend of Horrors), at the New Beverly Cinema. Can't make it to LA? Well, if you live in or around New York or Portland, Oregon, you're in luck as it will be screening in those cities on the same night.
Never let it be said we don't look out for you guys. Though it's been delayed and relegated to the Friday night wasteland, finally on February 13th we'll have a chance to see if Joss Whedon still has what it takes to make a successful show when "Dollhouse" makes its long-awaited debut on Fox TV.
Now's your chance to own some truly one-of-a-kind horror memorabilia that was part of Forrest J. Ackerman's extensive collection. I saw the news on Excite.com today that sometime during the last week of April (the date's still tentative), Profiles in Horror will be putting thousands of Ackerman's items up for bid.
Those of you out there with cable (pretty much everyone but my wife and me) will be happy to hear about not one or two, but three cool British shows making their way to BBC America later this year.
How odd is it that we just happened to randomly mention Warlock during the last Dinner for Fiends, and then all of a sudden news pops up about a new comic being created based on the film series? And people say we’re not trendsetters.
Interesting; we have a press release from Top Cow about their latest flagship series, Berserker, but not a peep as to what it’s actually going to be about. Does that make it more or less intriguing? All we know is that Berserker “combines elements of superheroes with Norse mythology … [thrown] in with some bone-crushing violence and punch-in-the-mouth action” I vote for more intriguing, then!
"You'll meet this guy, have a beer with him, or whatever; a month later, you'll wake up and take everybody out at the car dealership where you bought your car.” That’s how The Objective director Daniel Myrick explains what happens when one has a run-in with the lead in the new film he’s planning, Savant.
If you lived in a place called Doomsday County, should it really come as a surprise when you find yourself having to fend off hungry zombies, bloodsucking vampires, melting mad scientists, and alien invaders? That'd be like entering Uncle Creepy's subconscious mind and being shocked to find so much filth and madness.
Bio-terrorism takes on a whole new meaning in Bio-Dead, a new indie sci-fi horror flick from writer director Stephen J. Hadden about the horror that awaits a hazmat team looking for survivors following a viral holocaust.
