This weekend at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors in Chicago, George A. Romero was one of the featured special guests. Not only did the esteemed Godfather of Zombie Films give genre fanatics a taste of his new film ...Of The Dead, but he also answered fan questions. One topic that came up was Romero’s involvement with the remake of The Crazies.
Well, it seems like these days every other news item in the horror world is about a remake…and this is no exception.
Now that we've all seen that sweet new Terminator: Salvation trailer, it's a good bet that all expectations for the film are running pretty high. I know mine are. And what would a blockbuster be without some cool-ass collectible to go along with it?
As Dakota Fanning continues to blossom into womanhood, causing older guys everywhere to begin feeling creepy and unclean, the former child acting moppet is now officially set to vamp it up in New Moon, the next tweentacular installment in the Twilight film series.
Remember that flick The Cell from a few years ago? What it lacked in story it more than made up for in visuals, and I'm not just talking about J-Lo's amazing ass either. Warner and New Line have been sitting on the sequel for a while now, but they've finally decided to release it ... in the strangest of ways.
The first picture of Bill Moseley as horror host Uncle Seymour Coffins from Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 appeared online today, and I have to say he looks really badass!
A growing number of people believe in the existence of chemtrails, toxic chemicals or biological agents that are supposedly being deliberately sprayed at high altitude by the US government (and/or other entities) for a purpose undisclosed to the general public, resulting in respiratory illnesses and other health problems. A couple of days ago a film touching on that very topic, Toxic Skies, aired on Australian TV, but it's nearly impossible to find any information on it. Not even on the IMDB.
March definitely came in like a lion this year at Dread Central. We put up more news during the past week than in any recent period I can recall. Which is proof positive that despite the economic problems around the globe, the outlook for film projects -- including those of the horror variety -- is rosy and robust.
The buzz on the upcoming DVD release The Burrowers has been generally positive so it’s very cool that director J.T. Petty is giving horror fans a taste of what happened before his acclaimed full-length Western-themed creature feature with an 18-minute short film called Blood Red Earth (previously called simply "Red Earth").
With the release of the film on March 13th, all sorts of Last House on the Left nuggets of goodness have been popping up. The latest? A special Internet only spot!
Hey, Victor Crowley fans, wanna dress up like your favorite deformed (albeit slightly tragic) killer this Halloween? Well, then we’ve got some good news for you!
Is it me or is the term reboot becoming increasingly more annoying than even remake. It's as if the folks behind these things are trying to disguise the fact that they're making a remake by calling it something else. I just don't get it. Anyways, Martyrs director Pascal Laugier spoke a bit today about his upcoming foray into the land of the Cenobite.
If you're anything like me, and my condolences if you are, then you are eagerly anticipating the film adaptation of Max Brook's zombie novel World War Z. Recently there's been little news regarding it, but finally some has begun to trickle out.
As you may recall, RKO announced a deal with Twisted Pictures earlier last year, and as a result there has been a lot of chatter amongst the two companies about horror remakes. ComingSoon published an interview with director Andy Fickman (Race to Witch Mountain), who will be producing I Walked with a Zombie for RKO and Twisted Pictures, about some of them.
Okay, so I wasn’t completely sold on a movie with the title Blood: The Last Vampire but then when I had a chance to check out the badass trailer over at 24FramesPerSecond, suddenly I was very much on board.
