This month sure has been full of news involving Dario Argento (“Argento Goes Giallo” – January 2008), and why not try to squeeze in a little more until February?
We've been telling you guys about director Ryan Schifrin's comic book mini-series Spooks for a while now (“Dread Central Hosts Spooks Forum!” – January 2008). To help build the hype for the project's launch in February, Spooks just got its official website!
Guess what you're going to be doing in October of 2009 other than going to see the sixth and "final" installment of the Saw series and double dipping for the Saw V Uber-unrated Director's Cut Two-Disc Mega Edition DVD? Firing up your next-gen console with Jigsaw, that's what!
I gotta be honest with you guys; I could give two shits about the upcoming remake of Shutter. The original was dull as paint, and I seriously doubt the Americanized version is going to be that much more exciting.
I don’t know; it’s hard to call this one a horror movie, to be honest. I first saw 13: Game of Death back when it was still called 13 Beloved at Fantasia last summer; and while, yes, there are some gory and disgusting moments, it’s not really horror ... or is it?
It’s been way too long since we last got word on Frank (Basket Case, Brain Damage) Henenlotter’s return to our beloved genre, Bad Biology (“Henenlotter Returns With Bad Biology!” – January 2007). Granted, it does take a while to get a movie made, especially when it’s low budget, shot on film and gory as hell.
When the Weinstein Company snatched up the distribution rights to All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, one of the most talked about slashers in recent memory, the old crawling fear that I get whenever the Weinsteins get their hands on horror appeared with force. It would be at least a year before this would hit theaters, I just knew it.
Director Carl Paolino sent us a few exclusive images from his new flick today so we figured we'd share. The Sickness tells us the story of five laboratory workers who become "trapped in a secret disease development facility when a highly transmittable virus infects one of the workers."
Who couldn't love the first Hellboy movie? Ron Perlman was perfect in the make-up, and the effects got me caught up in the moment. After all that my mind went on a rampage trying to think of all the cool stuff (nerdy fanboy wishes) in the "Hellboy" comics that would be in the next installment. One of my visions actually came to fruition...
This week we got an e-mail from Revenant Magazine that informed us about a fan film based on the Marvel mini-series known as "Marvel Zombies." What we found within was a YouTube hosted video that blew our minds. I had a real bad feeling it was going to be deleted thanks to the site's strict copyright TOS.
Of all the horror icons, Freddy Krueger is my favorite. The first horror film I watched was A Nightmare on Elm Street, and from then on I was hooked. It didn't matter what others thought of the sequels; I was glued to the franchise. So, what should one think when this series is put into some questionable hands?
A while back we gave you guys the first word on Ryan (Abominable) Schifrin’s latest project, the horror/action comic Spooks (“Schifrin Talks Spooks” – December 2007).
Wow, this is unexpected; Mark Romanek (pictured, One Hour Photo) has left Universal’s long-anticipated remake of The Wolfman, which was ramping up production for the last few weeks.
Seems like everyone’s coming out of Sundance talking about a few films this year; Downloading Nancy is one (we told you about it here) and Time Crimes is another, admittedly both for very different reasons. In the case of Time Crimes, people are impressed by how both smart and horrific it is, a combo we don’t see often enough.
Funny, Nomad and I were just discussing the other day how we’d really like to get more comic coverage on the site, but man if it isn’t impossible to keep up with all the new horror titles out there now. Not that it’s a bad thing!
