The premise of the new sci-fi thriller Prototype reminds me very much of a mostly forgotten film from 1989, Deadly Weapon, about an emotionally disturbed teen that gets hold of a military laser gun, which itself was a pseudo-remake of 1978's Laserblast, a cult fave about a troubled teen that gets his hand on an alien laser cannon.
It looks like a week of just a few hits and mostly misses when it comes to DVD and Blu-ray releases, but as always, it's our job to keep you guys in the loop on what's coming, so head on in and see what you might want to add to your collection.
As we’ve told you already, Darren Lynn Bousman’s Mother’s Day remake is currently filming in the Great White North. The production was interrupted this past Saturday by Canadian police after mistaking a faux bank robbery for the real deal! Read on for the skinny!
Breathe a sigh of relief, Near Dark fans! The upcoming Blu-ray release is not a bare bones affair. Now if only someone could perform a last minute change to that god-awful Diet-Twilight box art. Then we could be REALLY happy!
While we all eagerly anticipate Cameron Diaz showing us how she handles her box, Warner Bros. has blessed us with dozens of images to gear up for Richard Kelly's latest head-trip!
Once again Wes Craven has taken to Twitter to update everyone on the status of his upcoming 25/8. Wait ... what's that? The film has a new title? Read on for more!
The guys who are putting together the "zero budget" indie film Patrol Men in the UK definitely seem to be doing things the right way. From the over 40(!) locations they've used for the flick to their fresh approach to the soundtrack (read more on that here), they are pouring their hearts and souls into the project. And today they've provided Dread Central with an exclusive first look at their brand new theatrical poster.
Um. We're a little confused. Just a smidge. You see, there was this little flick roaming around called Nightcrawlers that sounded pretty decent. Lo and behold today the film has not only gotten itself a director but also a new title -- Monster Squad! But ... it's not a remake. Okay then.
Looking forward to MTV's latest horror offering My Super Psycho Sweet 16, but you just don't know if it'll be worth your time? Here's the full trailer to help you decide!
Director Scott Derrickson has had enough of giant robots and wooden actors who contribute to the Earth standing still. The filmmaker whom many of us love for The Exorcism of Emily Rose is now heading back to the land of the supernatural with his latest flick, The Living.
An eagle-eyed reader by the name of RJMacCready directed us to the Premiere Picture website, where some early artwork and images for John Carpenter's long awaited return to the big screen, The Ward, were just waiting for us!
Dread Central was on hand at this year's LA Screamfest and caught up with two of the stars of Tom Six's The Human Centipede: First Sequence (review here), Akihiro Kitamura and Ashley C. Williams, who shed a little bit of light on what the sequel The Human Centipede II - The Full Sequence has in store for us.
Dread Central hit last night’s premiere at Screamfest LA of the much talked about (and sensationally denigrating) Tom Six-written and directed feature The Human Centipede: First Sequence (review here) in Hollywood, CA, and brought back some ocular candy and video of a pair of the film’s stars.
Ok, so sometimes we're a little slow, but we usually deliver the goods so quit your bitchin'! Gear up for part one of our look at this Halloween season's biggest hits and misses.
Two words are on the lips of lots of horror fans this Halloween season and they're not "remakes suck", "PG13 blows", or "Saw VI". They are "Paranormal Activity" (review here). Recently we sat down with director Oren Peli for an in-depth talk about the film, the phenomenon, and even the potential sequel.
