MySpace. Facebook. Friendster. Social networking sites are as ridiculously popular right now as they have been for the past few years. So how about you add a little more horror to yours?
Undoubtedly, the best is yet to come from this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but we've got the scoop on all the horrific delights you can look forward to during Preview Night and the first full day of the event.
When the trailer for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island hit the Web weeks ago, just about everyone was surprised at how genuinely spooky looking the film seemed to be. It's rare that a genre site like ours ever gets to cover a Scorsese film, so to say we were pleased is an understatement. That being said ... we now bring you the film's first official one-sheet.
Yet more chatter has surfaced from Harold Ramis talking all things Ghostbusters, including the proposed third film. Thankfully it's in video form so I don't have to transcribe the same old stuff he's been saying for the past several months once again.
Man, the waters on the set of Aja's Piranha 3D are really running red lately as several blood-soaked images have surfaced that truly give us an idea of what type of carnage to expect!
Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street for Platinum Dunes officially wrapped today, causing much celebration amongst the cast and crew -- some of which producer Brad Fuller uploaded to Twitter.
Gonna be at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and looking for something cool to do after dealing with the thousands of overweight people dressed in spandex as their favorite super-heroes? (Really? Fat Iron Man?) How about you get your asses to an exclusive screening courtesy of Focus Features of Park Chan-wook’s Thirst? Got your attention? We knew that would do the trick!
Of course you do! Just a few days ago, I bemoaned the fact that too few horror films these days aspire to be fun. I'm not necessarily sold on Jennifer's Body yet, but I do like the trailer. It's got a bit of a Hello Mary Lou - Prom Night II vibe, and if writer Diablo Cody didn't go overboard with her "hip and clever" dialogue (hard to tell from the trailer), this could be a total fucking blast.
The Final Destination probably isn't going to reinvent the wheel, but man does it look like FUN. Today's update is just another gore pic, but it should help whet your whistle for the fast-approaching release date of August 28, when it will go head to head with that other horror movie.
As we told you back in February, Dread Central is teaming up with Home Media Magazine to present the Reaper Awards 2009 this coming October, and we're now able to provide additional details and some info on how you can be involved.
There's not a horror fan out there who's not intrigued by the prospect of real cases of things that go bump in the night. Sometimes said things can come in some really unexpected places. At least that seems to be the story from those associated with the brand new production of Box of Shadows, which is currently filming in LA.
Who reading this has ever had a crazy friggin' sibling? I did. Every time my brother borrowed shit from me, I'd get it back "fixed", if I even got it back at all. Considering nothing was ever broken when I gave it to him, this was most troubling. In any event I guess I'm lucky that was the extent of it because Lionsgate's new film Frayed is set to show audiences how frightening brotherly love can be!
When I first came upon word that a low budget creature feature titled Bikini Monsters was just beginning production, I was stunned when it suddenly occurred to me that we somehow managed to go all these decades without ever having a monster movie titled Bikini Monsters. That's just hard for me to fathom for some reason.
IFC Films has quickly become one of horror's best friends by picking up lots of really good properties that otherwise would have struggled and giving them theatrical and on-demand releases, making them easily accessible to us blood-hungry fans.
