Haunted Box of Shadows?

There's not a horror fan out there who's not intrigued by the prospect of real cases of things that go bump in the night. Sometimes said things can come in some really unexpected places. At least that seems to be the story from those associated with the brand new production of Box of Shadows, which is currently filming in LA.

Frayed DVD Art and Trailer

Who reading this has ever had a crazy friggin' sibling? I did. Every time my brother borrowed shit from me, I'd get it back "fixed", if I even got it back at all. Considering nothing was ever broken when I gave it to him, this was most troubling. In any event I guess I'm lucky that was the extent of it because Lionsgate's new film Frayed is set to show audiences how frightening brotherly love can be!

Mutant Mermaids Attack in Bikini Monsters

When I first came upon word that a low budget creature feature titled Bikini Monsters was just beginning production, I was stunned when it suddenly occurred to me that we somehow managed to go all these decades without ever having a monster movie titled Bikini Monsters. That's just hard for me to fathom for some reason.

IFC's Midnight Movie Summer of Horrors!

IFC Films has quickly become one of horror's best friends by picking up lots of really good properties that otherwise would have struggled and giving them theatrical and on-demand releases, making them easily accessible to us blood-hungry fans.

D.J. Perry Making Bloody Renovation - Early Art

Fresh off his role in the not at all genre-centric Miracle at Sage Creek for Universal, D.J. Perry is set to trade in Western mush for blood and gore in the indie horror/thriller Renovation.

Casting Commences on Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

I’m just not sure the horror genre needs another "hip" comedy that calls out all the clichés and contrivances. It’s not every day you get a film like Leslie Vernon that actually understands the genre well enough to send it up with a straight face. The jury’s still out on the upcoming Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, but we’ve got a bit of casting news to report on while we wait and see how this horror comedy measures up.

Cabin Fever 2 Gets a Rating

It's hard to believe that it's been over a year since last we spoke about Ti West's Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever. I mean, really! In any event the film has finally gotten itself a rating.
