In August of last year Uncle Creepy and myself sat in an empty theatre with our jaws hung open as we experienced Rob Zombie's Halloween (review). We had just been assaulted by the f-word and Loomis' crazy magical car summoning abilities and hoped to never talk about it again.
We just got a heads up from a reader cryptically known only as “Wolf” that the trailer for Dead Space: Downfall, the animated film that serves as a prequel to the Dead Space video game, is now online.
Five up-and-coming directors from the UK whom you’ve probably never heard of have gotten together and created an anthology that, but all early accounts, is one of the coolest collections of shorts the horror world has seen in a while. So we’re going to give you the first word on it, cause we love you that much.
**UPDATE: Frank Spotnitz has "debunked" this rumor already in his official blog. All well and fine; just keep in mind these haven't been the most revealing of creative teams in the history of entertainment...**
A boatload of movies hit on a very few DVDs this Tuesday, August 19th, 2008. See what I mean below! 6 Films to Keep You Awake (2008) Directed by Various
Been a while since we’ve heard anything about Fruit Chan’s English-language debut, the remake of Hideo Nakata’s Don’t Look Up, but thankfully it’s been moving along nicely since we last told you guys about it.

Oh, diabolical duplicity! There are abominations out there in the world; twisted hive minds dually cast in humanizing flesh and blood. Society would have us believe them harmless, perhaps even friendly. Science might even agree. Film, however, has shown us the facts of the case. These dastardly duos, these insidious inseparables, these twins, as they are colloquially called, they are out there in the world, waiting, scheming, and conniving your imminent and bloody destruction! Evil twins want to destroy the world!
More pics from Dana Mennie's upcoming monster flick Dark Moon Rising hit our ever-so-hungry mailbox today, so we thought we'd share the wealth and give you all something to chew on!
Those lucky bastards over at IGN got their hands on the trailer for Uwe Boll’s first original horror film, Seed, and I’m oh so very jealous. No worries, though; you can just scroll down a bit to check it out for yourself.
Ha-ha, vindication! I demanded more Blood Drive posters from Lionsgate this year, and they cowered at my might, churning out not just another poster, but a badass poster to boot! You mess with the Butane, you get the horns, friends!
While most of the world had its eyes on Beijing and the Olympics this past week, DC's intrepid reporters Butane, Syxx, Foy, UC, and yours truly have been scouring the globe for genre news and views to send your way. Although I'm not following the Games much myself, I thought for this August 9-15, 2008, Weekly Wrap-Up, I'd join the fray and employ an international theme focusing on projects outside the good ol' US of A.
News flash! Teenage girls all over America have been shitting themselves with anticipation over the big screen adaptation of the phenomenon known as Twilight! As a means to quell the messy epidemic, Warner Brothers has bumped up the release date for the Catherine Hardwicke film to November 21, 2008, instead of in December as originally planned.
If you've ever played Halo online, you'll know just how annoying some hardcore gamers can be. Oh, how sweet of an untapped market this is for the slasher subgenre! No, I am not counting Stay Alive as gaming horror because that film was just an insult to anyone who has ever picked up a controller...
