Sometimes to fight evil, you must enlist evil. That's exactly what happened many years ago when serial killer Ted Bundy was enlisted to help capture the Green River Killer, and with the January 12th DVD release of The Riverman that tale is finally being told.
Here at Dread Central we love Death Race 2000. It's one of those extra charming flicks that revels in the fact that it has not one single redeeming social value. It was just a nice slice of absolute balls-out lunacy. Paul Anderson's remake .... not so much. Still, it was successful enough to merit a direct-to-video sequel and the cat has come out of the bag regarding who will be stepping into the director's chair.
What better way to keep up with the goings-on about one of your more anticipated films than to follow the director's very own blog? That's exactly the case with director Vincenzo Natali and his latest creature feature Splice.

Saw VI stands as one of the biggest surprises of the year for us here at Dread Central. We all thought it was Game Over after the abysmally ridiculous Part V, but director Kevin Gruetert and his team had other plans. The flick is getting ready to hit DVD and Blu-ray and we've got your details just waiting for ya!
One of the decade's most innovative survival horror titles is back with an all new installment into its interstellar spookshow ... Dead Space 2 is on its way! Can I get an amen?
Zombieland was a lot of fun in theatres, and now the fun's coming home courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Mark your calendars, folks. February 2nd is the day we'll be able to nut-up at video stores all over the country, and we've got your details on what to expect.
This season of Showtime's "Dexter" has been nothing short of pulse-pounding edge-of-your-seat craziness, and it all comes to a head next Sunday! Looking for a preview? We've got it for ya!
Two of Hollywood's most famous Basterds are still on each other's side! Eli Roth's big budget opus Endangered Species is one flick we've been really looking forward to since it was announced last spring. Now it appears that Roth is closer than ever to getting back behind the camera to film the movie thanks in part to some great script notes made by Quentin Tarantino.
Ah, Summit Entertainment. They've tantalized a generation of teens and cougars with their vampire and werewolf laden tales in The Twilight Saga. Now they're looking to move on to the one vampire with some real bite -- Dracula. He had better not friggin' sparkle!
The Spanish horror trend has been growing strong as of late, seemingly outlasting the Asian horror trend that's now dead as a friggin' doornail. With the success of such great films as The Orphanage, REC, and Pan's Labyrinth, it was only a matter of time before someone started roasting them. Enter Spanish Movie.
It looks like Anchor Bay is wishing everyone a "Blu" Christmas as it releases a wide variety of films ranging from The Alphabet Killer to Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon to Walled In to Cyclops to Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer onto Blu-ray for the first time. Now that's a lot of cerulean!
