The first decade of the new millennium has come to an end, and that means it is now time for film sites all over the web to begin posting their various retrospectives and lists recalling the decade that was. I generally as a rule dislike such lists because they are always so subjective.
Next Tuesday Paranormal Activity (DVD and Blu-ray review here) officially hits home video, and we've got your chance to win a copy of the extremely limited online order only Collector's Edition!
Dread Central was pointed in the direction of a new official website that celebrates the genius of the late Dan O'Bannon today, and there's no better place to celebrate the man's legacy.
Repossession Mambo, now known as Repo Men, has finally stepped out of the shadow of Darren Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera with a new trailer, still, and even a one-sheet!
Well, it was just a matter of time. In fact, we were talking about this very subject during the latest Dinner for Friends (coming soon). For those of you not paying attention, the latest movie starring the late Brittany Murphy, Deadline (review here), which features cover art of the young actress eerily laying dead in a bathtub, has been yanked by one rental outlet.
Not sure how we missed this story the other day -- I blame holiday festivities and distractions -- but in any event, it looks like The Vampire Diaries has added another recurring character: Mia Kirshner will portray Isobel, the sweet-yet-dangerous wife of substitute history teacher Alaric Saltzman (Matt Davis).
As part of its "Live by the Sword" line, Sideshow Collectibles has a new Premium Format Figure to tempt you to whip out your charge cards: Vlad the Impaler! Vlad, who is sculpted in stunning 1:4 scale, comes in both standard and exclusive versions with an estimated ship date of 3rd Quarter 2010.
Remember when the trailers for AVP:R came out around Christmas time a couple of years ago and we all got the fuzzy feeling inside? Little did we know that feeling would turn out to be indigestion caused by severe eye strain. A new story-based trailer has emerged for Sega's upcoming Aliens vs. Predator video game, and that feeling is back and looking more than justified. Get ready for a truly "Holy Shit!" moment!
November of 2008 was the last time that we got to update you on Jonathan Liebesman's Battle: Los Angeles, but hey, sometimes these things take a while! Some new and pretty nifty behind-the-scenes images leaked online from the film and we've got your directions on where to see the whole bunch!
No, we're not talking about the one starring Sid Haig from a while back, or even the new re-envisioning from Zeb DeSoto announced a few weeks ago. We're talking the original ... in color ... and in 3D. Um, yay I guess?
Break out the hand lotion! Two erotic horror comedies are busting out on DVD on January 19th, 2010, from Infinity Entertainment Group that should have more than their fair share of sex, blood, and really bad dialogue. Who cares what they're saying though, right?
Ok, show of hands ... yes, you guys at your computers ... if you were a fan of the original Demonic Toys, raise your hands. No, really, don't worry about your co-workers; you have seen them do worse. You freaks. How much we doth love thee! Get ready to see a couple of clips from the film's long awaited sequel, Demonic Toys 2: Personal Demons.
It's been a while since last we heard anything about Necrosis. February to be exact. BrinkDVD announced today that the flick will be hitting home video on April 20th, 2010. Smoke 'em then slay 'em if you got 'em, people!
There's not a day that goes by that we're not grateful that the MPAA has removed the stick that was lodged firmly up its ass in the Eighties and parts of the Nineties regarding horror movies. Those of you too young to remember missed some seriously dark days. Throat slashings with no blood. Chainsaw massacres without violence. It really sucked. In any event, let's put all that behind us in the interest of playing nice, shall we?
It’s not often that you get an opportunity to talk extensively with both Bud Bundy and the Candyman all in one day. But that was just one of the treats from this writer’s visit to the set of Dark Christmas, which appropriately lensed last week in Sacramento.
