Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Or at least have lost their footing quite a bit and look on the verge of hitting the ground face-first. Variety reports this morning that Hideo Nakata, the director of the original Ring, is getting ready to step behind the camera for a psychological thriller called ... it pains me to type this ... Chatroom.
The American Film Market kicks into full gear today, and as usual we can expect all manner of early production art to show up for movies that may not be done or, in some cases, even started filming yet. Bill Malone’s Parasomnia is not one of those; it's been done for a while now and it's being shopped around AFM with the new art you see to your right.
Looks like the film that’s always been referred to as The Untitled Gehenna Project, literally from the day it was announced, may have finally settled on a title. Variety reports this morning that the film is being called The Devil’s Tomb and that Voltage Pictures has just picked up the foreign sales rights for it.
I know you guys can’t wait for Hellboy II: The Golden Army to finally hit DVD, so to hold you over till the film’s release next Tuesday (that’s November 11th, by the way), we’ve got a quartet of clips from some of the special features on the disc in Video Dread!
The guys at Gentle Giant have proven yet again why the have the best busts in the business. Wait, that didn’t mean what it sounded like; what I meant was that they make the best busts in the business. Just take a look at the new Freddy Krueger bust, which we’re just teasing you with below.
It seems odd; we’ve been talking about the film version of Dolan’s Cadillac, the adaptation of the Stephen King short story, for so long that now that it’s actually filming it almost doesn’t seem real. Maybe it’s because a relatively unknown helmer is directing it? Or maybe because Sly Stalone isn’t a part of it anymore?
My Big Fat Greek Wedding meets Shaun of the Dead? That's what Gurinder Chadha, the clever filmmaker behind the Indian take on Bride & Prejudice, is looking to accomplish with her jaunt into our favorite genre called It's a Wonderful Afterlife.
Those blokes in the UK seem to always be one step ahead of us when it comes to good TV. How many shows on our major networks right now are remakes of British series? Hopefully we’ll be picking up on this new horror trend hitting the UK shortly, too.
The first official poster for Henry Selick’s soon to be masterpiece, Coraline, showed up over the weekend and you can see it in all its subtle wonder below. I’m guessing this is just early art and a more telling poster will be put out as we get closer to the film’s February release date.
A while back we told you guys about a new horror movie being made which starred the very easy-on-the-eyes Tracy Coogan (Zombie Honeymoon) called Dark Woods. After the initial announcement all was quiet until today, when we were handed a stack of stills from the film which just wrapped its 14-day shoot!
Toby Wilkins' Splinter is an original horror movie with no big name stars and has garnered positive reviews, so, naturally, it only gets a very small limited release. Like many of you, I'm dying to see Splinter but it isn't playing anywhere near me and odds are it probably never will. Take heart, folks, it looks like we won't have to wait too long for a DVD release.
It’s been a while since we had any good updates on Murder Loves Killers Too (review), the oddly-titled indie slasher from director Drew Barndhardt, but we forgive the film's producers for their silence because they’ve satiated us with images of beautiful women!
Summit Entertainment knows that you guys just cannot wait the additional couple of weeks until Twilight finally comes out, so they’ve decided to try and help ease your pain by allowing fans to get tickets early, and they’ll even give you a song if you do!
It's never easy to say goodbye to a legend. A man who gave his entire life to the genre that we love. That man is Forrest J Ackerman, and sadly he's slipping away as you read this.
