Well, what do you know? As soon as we finish up one story about a book-to-film adaptation, along comes another. This one involves long-time genre fave Dean Kootz and his 2006 novel The Husband.
We walk a fine line at Dread Central as far as deciding what's horror, what's sci-fi, and what's enough of a hybrid to warrant our covering it. Considering the novel Daemon bills itself as "a harrowing journey through the dark crawl spaces of the modern world," we thought its film adaptation merits at least a mention.
It seems to me that suspense is in danger of becoming something of a lost art in modern American horror. Sure there have been exceptions, but too many recent films fail to realize their true potential when it comes to lingering and unrelenting tension.
Hollywood just can't get enough of acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook's output. Three of his projects are in various stages of remake development, and it's starting to look like his vampire priest saga Thirst is going to join them.
Don’t know about other folks, but I LOVED the 2006 horror spoof, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (spoof isn’t the best word choice, but a movie like BTM really is unclassifiable).
The ever so controversial new film Black Devil Doll (review) is beginning to make its rounds around the country! Next up -- Rhode Island, Ohio, Manhattan, Syracuse, Utah, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, London, and more!
With IFC Films nabbing the rights to so many good horror flicks out there, every once in a while one falls through the cracks and no one notices it. Such is the case with Cadaver, but after one look at the new poster, I'm fairly certain this will make it to your "You know, maybe I should check that out" list!
For a time I thought I had a better chance of seeing God than seeing a legitimate release of Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps on DVD. Now that the cult classic is getting ready to thrill horror fans with its digital debut this fall, we have our first look at some of the extra material that will be gracing the upcoming release.
Well, no one can accuse IFC Films of being unwilling to promote controversial properties. This morning the company announced it is picking up Lars von Trier's Antichrist, which has without a doubt been the most talked about movie at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
A third Ghostbusters movie has been speculated about, rumored about, talked about for years. To hear Dan Aykroyd talk, rumor may finally becoming reality and ghosts may be getting busted once more come Christmas.
Now that all the teaser character posters are out of the way, we have one more slice of crazy-ass goodness for you to sink your teeth into!
To read “From the mind of Doug Hutchison”, for genre fans anyway, is an invitation to be freaked out. The actor, who has given horror fans such memorable characters as Eugene Victor Tooms in two episodes of “The X Files” – “Squeeze” and “Tooms” (both in Season One of the show), Percy Wetmore, one of Stephen King’s more horrific villains, in Frank Darabont’s The Green Mile and most recently, Henry Victor, the racist and borderline sociopathic Army officer in JT Petty’s, The Burrowers, is also a writer AND serious horror fan himself.
Time for another installment of Doug Slack's horror anthology serial Hard-Boiled Horror Tales! Dread Central is proud to present "The Hit Got Hairy" Part X.
Excited for Sam Raimi's Drag Me to Hell? You should be! And stop being a douche and quit your bitching about the rating! Believe me, you're not even gonna notice! How about a taste of the mayhem to come?
For my money, anything that Bret Easton Ellis (author of American Psycho) does is worth taking note of. So, it’s especially cool to hear the author has written an as of yet untitled script that genre fans might find interesting.
