Given we live in an age where darn near every horror movie hitting theaters is either a remake or a sequel, it’s kind of surprising to hear that a remake is bypassing theaters and going straight to DVD. Such is the case of the remake of Larry Cohen’s killer baby opus It’s Alive.
In some really startling news, the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, has died today at the all too young age of 50 due to what appears to be cardiac arrest.
One film we've been excited about forever here at Dread Central is Ti West's The House of the Devil, and with good reason -- it looks friggin' killer! Even better, Magnet announced today that they acquired the distribution rights so we can finally see the damned thing!
Dark Castle's Orphan is getting lots of attention recently, putting to bed that nasty rumor that it must be hard to love a child that's not your own!
Mez-Itz used to be the small, blocky figures from Mezco, made up like your favorite horror baddies and several original series. While similar figure lines just painted their stock bodies and added tiny tweaks, the Mez-Itz offered a freaky amount of sculpting, even in the accessories. If you were ever in the market for a tiny little Necronomicon, this was the place to get it.
A few days ago we reported that Rob Zombie’s creation The Haunted World of El Superbeasto was available for pre-order via several online retailers. At the time we didn’t have a release date, but today we’ve got word when to expect this twisted little animated flick.
Though the Nightmare on Elm Street remake is still filming in Chi-town (Dread Central is on-set as I write this so expect some exclusive goodies soon), that hasn't stopped the powers-that-be from thinking sequel down the line.
Lars Von Trier's film Antichrist has been enjoying quite a buzz in and around the industry, but the one question on everyone's mind has been, "When can we see it?" Finally we have an answer!
Can you say "finally"? At long last the official trailer for Richard Kelly's The Box, about a couple's 24-hour dilemma over whether or not to push a button that will simultaneously pay them $1 million and kill a stranger, is available.
There weren't a lot of horror films honored during the 35th Annual Saturn Awards, presented by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, but those that were certainly are deserving.
With the debut of the new extended trailer for Rob Zombie's Halloween II came some really insane blink-and-you've-missed-it imagery. For instance -- Was that Michael's gaping head wound we just saw? Did we really just see Laurie (Compton) dressed AND KILLING in the young Michael clown get-up? Yes, you may not have realized it, but you've seen it all.
Although Twitter keeps getting most of the attention these days, Facebook is still a pretty valuable resource as well. Case in point: Ezra Buzzington's post pointing us in the direction of the trailer for his upcoming film New Terminal Hotel.
Fresh off of offending 60% of the film-going world with the glowing and swinging dong of Dr. Manhattan (seriously people, lighten up) in Watchmen, director Zack Snyder dropped some details today about his next project Sucker Punch.
Finally the fourth film in the Final Destination franchise, simply called The Final Destination, has met the MPAA and come away with the rating we were hoping for!
Man, September is sure becoming crowded in terms of genre programming at theatres. Make sure you stockpile your popcorn money because moving up from its original October release is the Sorority Row remake.
