Dante Harper to Polish Script for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

It's been about six months since we first heard about Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, the brainchild of Dead Snow co-writer/director Tommy Wirkola under the auspices of Gary Sanchez Productions and Paramount. Now finally the project has a writer to take Wirkola's idea and smooth it out a bit: Dante Harper.

Make a Date with Saw VII in 3D

I almost feel bad for Saw VI. The flick delivered on all counts; yet, it performed really badly at the box office. We can only hazard a guess that the damage done by the abysmal Part V left audiences so cold that the new film was something they weren't going to bank on this year. David Hackl, director of Part V, now has a date for redemption with his new flick Saw VII 3D.

Williamson Talks More Scream 4

The horror genre has undergone quite a few changes since Scream single-handedly rescued the genre from box office oblivion back in the mid 90s (I can’t believe it’s been over ten years already) so news of a fourth film has really piqued Dread Central’s curiosity. Will Scream 4 be in line with the gorier, nastier flicks that came after the self-referential trilogy, or can we expect some good-natured winking to accompany our slashing? We’ve got an answer for you.

New Transylmania Cilp

With Transylmania on the horror horizon (and not much else), vampire fans at least will have something to sink their teeth into. Even if it's the bloodless equivalent of a rubber chicken.

No Dark Tower Adaptation for Abrams
