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.
If there’s one name that sends chills down the spine of Internet communities everywhere, it’s Paul W.S. Anderson (I guess Uwe Boll too, but fuck it; I love that guy). It’s not that his visual eye is bad, but he’s one of the only directors in Hollywood who refuses to grow as a filmmaker. Each new film is loaded with as many stereotypes and clichés as the last one, and today, I’m here to tell you that he’s got another film in the pipeline to anticipate.
Last month Dread Central brought you word about Killer Green, an upcoming horror flick about horrific happenings at a desolate, roadside pub. Today we got the good word that a veteran horror actor has joined the cast.
During the past year anytime I’ve recommended Darren Lynn Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera to anyone, they look at me and ask whether or not I’m referring to the 1984 Alex Cox comedy Repo Man. I expect even more confusion this winter when the upcoming organ harvesting flick formerly known as Repossession Mambo hits theaters with a suspicious title change.
Ever see a little anthology film called Nite Tales? It was the one that starred Flava Flav introducing tales of carnage Crypt Keeper style. Though Flav nearly crippled the movie (boy did he come close), what made it work was the passion of director Deon Taylor. We've got the skinny on another project from Taylor that's been kicking around for a while now.
In the first version of Halloween Rob Zombie had Myers speak one word, "Boo", referring of course to Laurie Strode's pet name as a baby. The scene didn't work, and Zombie wisely cut it. Will the "giant" be speaking in the sequel?
If you missed Drag Me to Hell because it was rated PG-13 or some other lame-ass excuse, you now have a chance to atone for your sins when the movie hits DVD and Blu-ray this October just in time for Halloween!
Is it just me, or has there been a big resurgence in evil kid flicks lately? For my money, one of the best of the bunch is definitely Tom Shankland's The Children (read Andrew's extremely positive review here) although McCannibal had a different opinion following the film's screening at this year's Fantasia (read his review here). Of course that means Trembles has to add his $.02 into the mix!
While catching up with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton at Comic-Con, Dread Central wanted to find out about the long-rumored remake of The Tingler that they had been attached to.
Being a lifelong cryptozoology buff (even in kindergarten I was checking out library books on Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster), I have to confess to having a soft spot for the Animal Planet crypto show "Lost Tapes" even though being fully aware that the quality of the show ranges from intriguing to unintentionally laughable to downright awful.
Variety is reporting that due to a scheduling conflict actress Rachelle Lefevre will be unable to reprise her role as villainous redheaded vampire vixen “Victoria” in the third installment in the Twilight film franchise. Replacing her in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be an even more famous redhead, daughter of Opie, Bryce Dallas Howard.
While at Comic-Con, both Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan were ready to let fans know whether or not we can expect a fourth installment in the Feast franchise.
At the San Diego Comic-Con, Dread Central was on hand to talk with Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan about their new film The Collector, which hits theaters this Friday.
