Although Cannes, Toronto, and a few other film fests garner the lion's share of media attention, the Venice International Film Festival is certainly no slouch, as evidenced by the fact that it's just about to celebrate its 66th anniversary. The fest's line-up was announced today, and we're happy to report that quite a few genre offerings were included, both in and out of competition.
Rob Zombie puts it plainly, "My Halloween 2 has nothing to do with your Halloween 2.” Critics of Zombie’s first Halloween remake were told he did have the original in mind when crafting the film, the result cleaving said critics down the middle. Now we are mere days away from the second coming of Michael Myers, so we sat down with the man behind the new Shape to see what to expect and what else is brewing in Zombieland.
It's always nice to see the little guy make good. Big studio films have a habit of swallowing up the indie scene, but lucky for us some really good stuff can stand whatever Hollyweird can throw at it. Case in point -- Marc Selz's Satanic Panic.
Joseph Kosinski, director of the Tron Legacy, is all set to take us to a whole other realm of existence known as Oblivion. Don't be expecting any glowing suits or light-cycles though ... this world is darker. A whole lot darker.
Screaming is a universal language, and never has it been more apparent than in the French trailer for David R. Ellis' The Final Destination in 3D, which will be hitting theatres here on August 28th.
Who doesn't love themselves some Sid Haig? As you know, the Captain has a new werewolf film coming out really soon, Dana Mennie's Dark Moon Rising, which also stars Max Ryan, Maria Conchita Alonso, Billy Drago, and more. To celebrate the film nearing release, we have several images of big Sid doing his thing for you guys to dig on!
In an interesting follow-up to the news that Bryce Dallas Howard would be taking on the role of Victoria in the upcoming third installment of the Twilight saga, Eclipse, we're now hearing from the original actress who portrayed the vamp on a vendetta, Rachelle Lefevre, and she is apparently none too happy about the swap.
Zombieland looks amazing, and this new trailer will show you just how amazing in spades. There's one thing though ... it's pretty much unfinished, and once word of it being online gets out, I'm sure it'll be gone in a flash.
Generally in horror you really aren’t supposed to talk about fairy tales. However, longtime friends Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton have enjoyed a whirlwind (and fairy tale-esque) career since they arrived on the scene in 2005 through their involvement with "Project Greenlight".
While walking the superhero-infested halls of the SDCC, we ran into Night of the Creeps director Fred Dekker and spoke to him about all things interesting! Including ....
Can't wait for August 7th to get here? Need your Milla fix now? Don't worry, kids! We've got a boatload of stills from David Twohy's new thriller A Perfect Getaway to tide you over!
Here at Dread Central we're always on a lookout for something new and different to expose our readers to so when we heard about an upcoming Russian horror film called Phobos, of course we had to share the intel.
The badass known as the Mad Creator, Gris Grimly, dropped us a line today with more insight into his latest short film Wounded Embark of the Lovesick Mind including the teaser trailer that he debuted at Comic-Con.
Tonner Doll Company was the first collectibles outfit to recognize the potential of the Twilight franchise and (along with some prodding from Dread toy junkies) quickly jumped at the chance to bring this world of supernatural beings into their family of licenses. To date only Edward and Bella have been realized in doll form, but as the Dread crew closed up shop at San Diego Comic-Con, our excellent Tonner friends flagged us down for a sneak preview of what's to come.
Sean (Silent Night, Zombie Night) Cain, director of the upcoming Hammer Films/ArsonCuff Entertainment horror feature Breath of Hate, tipped Dread off today of his casting of actor Jason Mewes. The Clerks and Feast alum will star in Breath of Hate alongside the previously announced Ezra (Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2) Buzzington and Felissa (Return to Sleepaway Camp) Rose.
