It could be one of the best titles in movie history: Satan Hates You, a project that’s been in one stage of production or another for almost four years now. We’ve seen it around here and there, but not until reader “Aaron” dropped us a line telling us to check it out, did I make an effort to really look into it. Glad I did!
On the right you can check out a very cool T-shirt design for Marc Lougee’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” (review), the first stop-motion Poe adaptation produced by Ray Harryhausen.
All has been quiet on the front of David Gregory’s Plague Town, the first feature coming our way from Dark Sky Films. Today, however, fresh from the set of Dark Sky’s second production, House of the Devil, I find an update on the killer kids movie. How coincidental is that?
Every now and again a movie comes along that most distributors wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. Chad Ferrin's Easter Bunny, Kill! Kill! (review here) is just such a flick.
We've just uploaded an exclusive video to the Video Dread which features two scenes from Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo's super sick home invasion flick Inside (DVD review). I highly doubt this is safe for work, so click with caution! Below our exclusive is the DVD trailer for the movie as well!
Ryan Schifrin's comic mini-series Spooks is kicking all kinds of ass right now. If you're worried that the Devil's Due published comic won't live on once the final issue is released, we've got some good news for ya.
Mezco Toyz revealed to us today the upcoming figures for their Cinema of Fear line of toys and plushes! Here's what to expect in stores this October:
Just a few days back we told you guys about the possibility of Toolbox Murders 2, which was apparently being written by Jeffrey Reddick (Day of the Dead redux). The story came from Fangoria, so of course Reddick got in touch with them to set the record straight:
How does one replace the genius that is Vincent Gallo when he leaves your production because he can’t stand to work next to his ex? You bring in another large-nosed actor and hope no one notices! In the case of Dario Argento’s Giallo, said actor is Adrien Brody (King Kong, Splice).
I would love to see a company like Blue Sky Studios do something other than kids’ animation, though obviously that’s where the money is, so when I read the rumor about them nabbing rights to small press book The Anubis Tapestry, I just had to share.
What strikes me most funny about this article is the reference in the very first line to “the booming horror genre”. Like horror’s never made money before? Like it’s this newly discovered method of getting a lot for a little?
It's been a while since a studio's really gotten behind an alien invasion film (Cloverfield doesn’t count since it was JJ Abrams and we have no idea where it came from), but The Hollywood Reporter got word this morning of a script called Battle: Los Angeles that Columbia has optioned.
Just like our extensive and exhausting (on our side, at least) coverage from last year (read it all right here), we’re compiling as much info as we can for the horror offerings at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, going down in NYC this April 23rd – May 4th!
The film that really should have been a part of last year's After Dark's 8 Films to Die For, Frontier(s), is still going to get its chance to shine here in the States with an uncut theatrical run on May 9th and landing on DVD May 13th.
I may be in the minority here, but I found Michael Katleman's Primeval (review) to be a good time at the B-Movies. It wasn't perfect, but it had amazing visual effects for the crocodile and some moments of unintentional hilarity. Getting to watch it with the director added to the good times as well.
