There's not a day that goes by that we're not grateful that the MPAA has removed the stick that was lodged firmly up its ass in the Eighties and parts of the Nineties regarding horror movies. Those of you too young to remember missed some seriously dark days. Throat slashings with no blood. Chainsaw massacres without violence. It really sucked. In any event, let's put all that behind us in the interest of playing nice, shall we?
It’s not often that you get an opportunity to talk extensively with both Bud Bundy and the Candyman all in one day. But that was just one of the treats from this writer’s visit to the set of Dark Christmas, which appropriately lensed last week in Sacramento.
Frankenstein Mist. You don't see that very often on the evening weather report. Usually it's snow or sunshine. Me? I wanna live in the world where a good old fashioned Frankenstein Mist can turn the world on its ear. Studio 407's comic Night and Fog is just such a world, and it has just been optioned for the big screen!
Readying itself for a DVD release on December 29th, Lightning Entertainment has set loose another clip for Diagnosis: Death. Directed by Jason Stutter, this new horror comedy stars Raybon Kan, Jessica Grace Smith, Suze Tye, and The Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie, Rhys Darby, and Jemaine Clement.
As part of Slamdance 2010, 64 short films were chosen from around the world and of all genres to debut in Park City during the fest. Today we heard from the director of one of them, Pierre Ayotte, who pointed us in the direction of the trailer for his submission, "Massacrator".
Leading up to next Tuesday's release of Paranormal Activity (DVD and Blu-ray review here), Paramount held an interesting contest -- one lucky fan was going to get to host a special screening of the film in his or her home along with director Oren Peli.
When it first began its run on ABC, we covered Lost fairly regularly, but over the years as the show's viewership has dropped, so has our coverage. But now that the final season is set to premiere on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, interest is again on the rise; and when a G4 video on the Lost ARG (Alternate Reality Game) art show landed in our mailbox, we figured we'd share it with our readers.
Leaving no stone unturned in its quest to find the next big budget graphic novel adaptation, Hollywood has finally gotten around to the forgotten, which was created by Evan Young and Jareth Grealish back in 2002.
Now that Peter Jackson has put his Lovely Bones on display, the question beckons -- What's next for the visionary director? A return to true horror perhaps? Not just yet. It appears that Jackson is a bit more interested in hungry cities for the time being.
We first saw it back in early October from a scanned copy of People Magazine, but today Summit released the first official hi-res still from David Slade's The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Take the Southern fried swaggery charm of True Blood and replace the vampires and werewolves with zombies; cannibalistic, robotic nightmares; and Cthulhu-esque horrors. Now make half the populace of a quiet little town superpowered and earmark the other half for meat ... and you’ve got Aaron Williams' North 40!
Finally, months after it was announced at the SDCC '09 (I thought I'd never have to write those words again), IDW's graphic novel prequel to Legion entitled Legion: Prophets is available now for your perusal.
The French trailer and one-sheet for the Xavier Gens-produced flick by Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher, The Horde, appeared online today, and we have them both for you all good and foreign like.
Some people are just born to play a certain role. Karloff was the monster. Lugosi was Dracula. Jeffrey Combs? This is a man who was born to play Edgar Allan Poe. One of the most incredible times I've ever had was when we saw Nevermore in LA last month. It was literally the closest to ever spending an evening with Poe we modern day folks could hope for. Now fans in Maryland are about to join in on the experience.
Next Tuesday's the day. After years of tinkering and one hell of theatrical ride, Paranormal Activity (DVD and Blu-ray review here) will be home for your viewing pleasure, and pretty soon you'll be able to win as you watch!
