Monticello, Arkansas - Behind a black iron gate sits a house that seems to be something out of a dream. White pillars, red domed roof, surrounded by trees, the home is an ideal setting for a fairy-tale existence, a happy home where nothing could ever go wrong. But within, not everything is as it seems. There is an unhappy air, a sadness that paces the floors, accompanied by the sounds of crying and faces peering back out of mirrors. She didn't die a violent death, nor was it much of a surprise to her when she died. She took her own life.

There seem to be lots of people out there who feel they just need a push to put pen to paper and get that great screenplay written. If you're one of them, then stop being a lazy ass and start writing, damn you! It's not going to happen all by itself, is it!? Also, there's this Screenwriting Expo you might be interested in.
You've got to admire the filmmaking team behind The Fields for one thing: casting Tara Reid in their movie and expecting us to take it seriously. Okay, low blow and a cheap shot at the low budget horror production, but I couldn't resist. Today they've uploaded some pics straight from production and we've got them for you!
There's probably no better person to tackle the adaptation of Robert Kirkman's The Walking Dead than Frank Darabont. I've always been a fan of the guy, and two years after the release of his masterpiece, The Mist, I'm adamant that we've yet to get another genre film that good. By crafting a perfect balance of creature feature, human drama, and social commentary, Darabont proved himself a master of the elements required to make this sucker work.

In what has to be one of the greatest genre stories in recent years, the horror genre’s most prolific writer, Edgar Allan Poe, will be given a royal ceremony beginning on October 7th with a public viewing of his body at the Poe house and continuing all the way to October 11th with a funeral procession and service.
I guess I go against the grain when I say that I prefer to like most of the characters in a slasher flick. I’ve never been of the mind that you should root for the killer (the kills can still be fun/surprising without watching a collection of degenerates), and I’ll be curious to see how the recently announced Comedown goes about itself. After all, a story about a psychopath targeting trespassers could certainly go either way...
