Yet another one-sheet to dig on comes to us tonight, this time for the reportedly disturbing and oddly titled film Downloading Nancy starring Maria Bello as a lonely woman who turns to the Internet to find someone willing to kill her but finds love and fulfillment of her darkest desires instead. Of course freaky, kinky, and deadly shit ensues much to our delight.
Sci-fi thriller Pandorum got itself a brand new one-sheet, continuing its trend of using limbs and wires in the most disturbing ways possible.
Attending guests of the Cannes and Fangoria film festivals will be able to attend sneak peek screenings of Corbin Bernsen's Dead Air over the coming months.

Hey guys! Just had a pretty fun radio interview with J. Travis Grundon that I figured I'd share with you all about all things horror! Filthy, dirty horror.
Loving your eight-inch MEGO-style Night of the Living Dead figures as much as we do? Well, wait until you see the new Black and White variant!
Jake West's 2005 film Evil Aliens (review here) is a true favorite around the Dread Central epicenter. In fact, we keep it lovingly on display between our jewel-encrusted busts of Little Richard and our titanium-plated firemen poles. I expect we'll be doing the same once his new film Doghouse makes it Stateside, but for now we'll just hang up the UK's sweet new quad poster!

After a huge opening weekend for Wolverine Hugh Jackman is turning to a genre he's only really stayed out on the fringes of -- Horror!
For the first time in over half a century there is no Ackermuseum of Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror. Forrest J Ackerman (1916-2008), genre-giant and the heart and soul of the largest collection of memorabilia ever assembled, has left the building. Now the building is leaving us. Without question, the end of an era. But not necessarily the end of Forry’s dream. Even as we face the depressing barren walls left by Uncle Forry’s absence, we’ll also consider how the recent auction of his memorabilia may offer a glimmer of hope for classic genre fandom and a new generation of Monster Kids.
