With all the news that keeps pouring in today, I'm gonna keep this short and sweet. If you own a Blu-ray player, this is a very good week for you. But even if you don't, there are plenty of releases that should make your wallet feel the pinch.
Some more news rolling in off of the old Pork Chop Express about the Blu-ray release of John Carpenter's Big Trouble in Little China including art work, specs, and the inclusion of an extended cut! Jack Burton fans rejoice!
Get ready for an Asian horror remake that's as unconventional as can be, riddled with things we have never seen before! In The Echo we're just getting more unsuspecting people who put their noses where they shouldn't be and end up being fodder for a lingering curse! Nope. Nothing familiar about that plot at all!
Now this just warms our black little hearts. A couple of weeks ago we told you about the sequel to the remake of The Toolbox Murders, and now just days later the film has a site, a synopsis, a teaser poster, and one of the most badass and violent teaser videos I've seen in years. There's good reason to get excited folks! Praise be the sequel gods!
First Showing.net is all over Cannes and has given us glimpses of the Croisette, the infamous street which studios and prod cos line with ad material for highly anticipated features, and those still seeking distribution for their films.
One of the main things that sets Dread Central apart from the horror crop is our insane and completely random sense of humor. From our staff to you, the readers. So then, in the interest of science, every now and then we'll post a random horror picture for you to caption.
It's been several months since we last talked about Jose Cassella's zombie opus The Sacred but thankfully the good folks behind this effort have kept punching and as a result have delivered a trailer that's nothing short of a knock-out.
Dark Castle Entertainment is getting back to serious horror business by turning in yet another remake of a classic William Castle tale, 1965's I Saw What You Did ... And I Know Who You Are. This time with My Bloody Valentine 3D duo Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer reuniting to turn in the frights.
Fans of the Saw franchise, get ready for a slice of coolness. Over on director Kevin Greutert's website, hes posted a list of cast members with photos and a truckload of behind-the-scenes images. Nothing too exciting, but considering the veil of secrecy usually kept over these films, this is pretty neat.
The talk about a Preacher film has been going on forever. Now, according to director Sam Mendes it looks as if it may be happening next year. Of course, I'm not holding my breath, but I do have my fingers crossed.
Without question one of the best parts of Rob Zombie's Halloween was Danielle Harris. Say what you want about the rest of the movie, she was spot-on the entire time. You could feel her fear. That's precisely why when the news broke that she'd be back for the sequel we were all pretty happy. If these latest pictures are any indication, she's happy too!
The battle to preserve your TIVO, iPhone and XBox 360 has just begun! Rather ... the fight to stop those things from killing you is right around the corner, if scientists are correct. Never the less, Terminator Salvation will be stomping into theaters soon enough and those masters of 12 plastics (Hot Toys, natch) are dishing out another character to join the battle...
It's always nice to have readers in handy places. Case in point: one Mr. Roger Galloway who recently spent the day hanging around the set for Alexandre Aja's Piranha.
The trailer for Foy's most anticipated summer movie, The Asylum's Mega Shark Vs. Giant Octopus surfaced today over on MTV(!) of all places. Literally it defies all description. Words fail me. Just watch.
Excited about tomorrows DVD / Blu-ray release of S. Darko? You should be. If all goes well this could turn out to be a pretty cool sequel. Considering the mystique and fanfare surrounding the original film that is a pretty big if, but hey, I'm willing to take the chance if only for Frank The Bunny's sake!
