One film that made a splash over at this year's European Film Market was Patrick Hughes' bloody revenge thriller Red Hill. So the question beckons ... when will we see it here?
Next week director Breck Eisner will unleash his terrifying reimagining of George A. Romero’s classic film The Crazies onto audiences everywhere. Dread Central was given the opportunity to catch up with the man who helmed the project to talk about what makes his Crazies so terrifying and what the status is on two projects he’s been attached to - Flash Gordon and The Brood remake.
In honor of the release of Eli Roth’s 2003 Cabin Fever onto Blu-Ray, as well as the 2009 sequel Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever’s initial release onto DVD, Dread Central found this to be the ideal time to catch up with the star of the original, Rider Strong.
You need a sinister character actor for your movie? Look no further than Vincent Cassel. The guy just oozes malevolence. It seems only fair that, given his character's celluloid misdeeds, sooner or later he'd get the short end of the stick and have to atone for his movie sins. And atone he will in the upcoming flick The Monk.
And the cast just keeps on growing for one of our most anticipated films of the year (if only for the good chance it stands of being bat-shit nuts): Patrick Lussier's Drive Angry, which will hopefully be hurling many a limb at us in glorious 3D.
You have got to give it to Anchor Bay, man. They started as a little company double and triple dipping in the DVD market and advanced to releasing films theatrically. What a ride! Fresh off of their success with the release of Adam Green's Frozen, the next horror title they're looking to get into as many theatres as possible will be Steven R. Monroe's remake of I Spit on Your Grave (a.k.a. Day of the Woman for you purists out there).
Well. That didn't take very long at all, did it? Who would have thought that a movie directed by Steven Soderbergh that will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard, and Matt Damon would be acquired so quickly by a big studio?!?
Around four years ago a new series was greenlit by what was then respectfully known as the Sci-Fi Channel concerning death and the afterlife. Despite the go-ahead, the show never got made (maybe its backers learned of the ridiculous network name change ahead of time?), but now the Steven Spielberg fueled miniseries "Nine Lives" is once again gathering some healthy buzz.
You know, in retrospect, if Katie and Micah had had some tiny plastic Ghostbusters figures with them, they might have stood a better chance against that nasty demon who was haunting them literally to death in the box office smash Paranormal Activity. At the very least Venkmen. He had moxie!
Fans of those strange mixed-up collectibles known as bobbleheads will have lots of reasons to get their classic horror movie monster groove on as Funko Toys just let loose a fresh batch of them at this year's Toy Fair show in New York!
Horror satire seems like it's one of the toughest things to nail down. Too often it either falls flat or is just plain stupid. But I've got a good feeling about the folks behind How to Survive the Strange, and if you do, too, you might be able to join them!
I know what you're thinking. "What the hell is a Marble Hornet?" Right? I hear you! After spending half the afternoon researching and digging, I'll be honest: I still have no idea, but you can come on in and check out the first video in a lengthy YouTube series.
15 Till Midnight is more than just my bedtime during the work week. It’s also the title of an upcoming horror/sci-fi movie that has rounded out its cast with up-and-coming genre actors who are ready to prove their worth in front of the camera.
Here’s a call to all you resident writers, poets, and graphic artists out there: If you’re inclined to whip up a tribute to the late, great Jacinto Molina (aka Paul Naschy), then go ahead and get something ready. It just might get published!
Robin Williams has played some pretty memorable screen psychos in the past (One Hour Photo and Insomnia), and now we’ll find out how his daughter, Zelda, stacks up against her old man when she takes a dip in the genre’s deep end.
