Dread Central's Best & Worst of 2009

2009. It was pretty much as crappy a year for horror movies as it was for the economy. There were, however, some really high points to help balance out all the drivel that was put out there in theatres as well as on home video, and they are to be celebrated, even though technically a couple of them are not even from this year.

The Asylum Breeding a Megapiranha

When I got word from my man Avery that The Asylum had officially announced their mockbuster of Alex Aja’s Piranha 3D, I was not the least bit surprised other than I fully expected them to just add an "s" on the end and call it Piranhas. Instead the Asylum madmen have decided to up the ante by making it a Megapiranha.

Cold Spots: 2nd Battalion Armory

Chicago, Illinois - Inside it's another busy day. Through the hallways, interns dash back and forth with coffee and papers and the latest demands from their higher ups. It seems for all the world like a modern office, far removed from things that happened almost a hundred years ago. But in the hush of a darkened room, the past will not be forgotten. Tragedies continue to leave their marks in the form of phantom footsteps and whispering voices. Even in a city the size of Chicago, things happen that cannot, nor should ever, be forgotten.

Six New Blackout Posters Show Some Character(s)

The Blackout recently caught a lot of crap for having posters that resembled those from Feast. Yes, it showed the profile of a monster looking down, etc. Well, the folks behind the film aren't going to have to worry about those comparisons again as their six new character one-sheets are truly unique, albeit a bit boring.

Motion Picture Purgatory: I Drink Your Blood

As the year 2009 winds down, we can't think of a better way to send it on its not so merry way than via a blast from the past like the cult classic I Drink Your Blood, which has the distinction of being the first film ever to be rated X by the MPAA based on violence alone.
