Behold! The First Two "Universal Megos"

The US Toy Fair is an insane rush of interviews and images of THOUSANDS of the newest toys hitting our happy shores, most of which we can shoot pictures of so you, at home, can drool to your heart's content and plant printed pictures around the house like a young Ralphie hinting at his lust for a Red Rider BB gun. But some, no matter how much we beg, we cannot photograph, most often due to approvals needed by a licensor.

Watch the King Crab Attack Short Film Now

If you listened to the last Foycast, you heard me do a dramatic reading of pages from the book Crabs on the Rampage. While the world still awaits a feature film version, we can enjoy plenty of rampaging stop-motion crab action in the six-minute tongue-in-cheek French short film "King Crab Attack".

New Inkubus Project Lands Robert Englund as Lead

Every once in a while we learn about a new project only after it's already started filming, and that's the case with Verdi Corrente Productions' Inkubus, which is currently shooting in Rhode Island. But we certainly should be hearing lots more soon as they've just landed Robert Englund as their lead actor.

The Strangers Director Turns to This Man...

One of the recent favorites around the Dread Central offices is Bryan Bertino's home invasion flick The Strangers. It's a mean little bastard of a film, packed with enough suspense for five movies.

Halloween Stars to Follow a Trail of Bread Crumbs

Survival of the Dead: Uncle Creepy's Pictorial Diary of the Dead

Of all the things I've been lucky enough to do and accomplish in my career working within the horror industry, the one I am most grateful for was the opportunity to not only meet but befriend a true living legend in our industry ... George A. Romero. Simply put, the man is my idol, and even though we've grown close, I still get the butterflies every now and then. It was in September of last year that the phone call came.

Trailer Debut: The Controversial New Flick - The Killer Inside Me

We are pretty damned sure that you have heard all about the ruckus Michael Winterbottom's The Killer Inside Me caused overseas at the European Film Market due to its brutality, so to say our eyes are very focused on this flick is an understatement. Like the first clip from the film, the first official trailer is pretty tame as well.
