Cold Spots: Tyler's Spite House

Frederick, Maryland - It comes in the early hours of the morning, its arrival heralded by heavy footsteps on stairs. Who he is, many have guessed, but they do not know for sure, nor do they know his intentions. But what is certain, from witnesses to victims, is that he is very real ... and very frightening. Whether he means to hurt anyone is unknown, but he appears just the same, prodding with long bony fingers anyone who has the audacity to stand in his home. Although he is dead, he still lingers, many believe, out of spite.

Night Flier Director Mark Pavia Explores Sick Nick!

For me, one of the best horror films of the 90s is The Night Flier. The Stephen King adaptation is a terrifically eerie little horror film boasting some fantastic atmosphere and performances, and I've always felt its success is largely due to Mark Pavia's skilled direction. For a while it looked like Pavia was never going to deliver a sophomore effort, but we're happy to announce that day is finally here!

Wolfman Director Hints at Jurassic Park IV

With Joe Johnston's The Wolfman just around the corner (finally!) and the director making the promotional rounds to plug the horror remake, he's opening up on some projects in the pipeline - including a new Jurassic Park flick, which could very well be the start of a new trilogy!
