We've been telling you about the official print follow-up to Bram Stoker's Dracula for a while now. Dacre Stoker, Bram Stoker’s great-grandnephew, has penned a sequel to the original novel along with Long Island screenwriter Ian Holt, which even has the official backing of the Stoker Estate, the first to have such a designation since the original film adaptation starring Bela Lugosi. Now that the book is in the can, a promotional trailer has hit the web.
Color us disappointed. The one-sheet for Joe Dante's The Hole broke out yesterday, and for all the wonder and imagination weaved into this project, the poster is about as bland and direct-to-video-ish as they come. See for yourself.
Dread Central (in this case Dread scribes Heather Wixson and myself) hit the red carpet for the premiere of Fox’s Jennifer’s Body (review here) last night at the Hollywood & Highland complex in Hollywood, CA, and brought back some ocular candy as well as a handful of video interviews from the rather cramped carpet, which you can see below.
On the heels of the announcement earlier this week that a 3D Night of the Living Dead remake is in the works (read that story here) comes news that the original NOTLD has been restored, colorized, and converted, frame by frame, into full 3D and will premiere at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 3, 2009, as a part of the 5th Annual Johnny Ramone Tribute.
Good things are coming out of the Toronto Film Festival in terms of distribution. After a mucho successful screening and amidst some really positive buzz, it seems as if REC 2 (review here) has scored itself some Stateside distribution.
Filmmakers Green and Lynch have very much developed into a bit of a comedy team given the success of their Road to Frightfest short films (watch Road to Frightfest year one here and Road to Frightfest year two here). As a result the writing was kind of on the wall that a more formal collaboration wouldn't be that far off.
Terrance Zdunich's latest work, The Molting (interview here), is now available for purchase; and since we have a habit of letting you guys know about cool shit to dig on, we couldn't resist this moment to remind you to get your copy like yesterday.
Here are a few of things that, when put together, can turn into something completely bitchin': Clive Barker, 3D, and comic books. Got your interest? Kind of figured we would. Get ready for IDW's latest property -- Clive Barker's Seduth, which will be presented in 3D.
The Toronto International Film Festival '09 is in full swing, and you'll be happy to know that Dread Central has partnered with the fine folks over at The Substream to bring you daily video coverage of the event that will feature news, interviews, and maybe even a couple of reviews here and there.
October. It's just in the air, man! Halloween candy, the smell of candles burning inside of freshly carved jack-o-lanterns, and the rotting entrails of several people who were unlucky enough to start playing one hell of a game. The TV spots have begun for Saw VI, and we have the first one for you right here laced with all new footage.
With the It's Alive remake hitting home video on Tuesday, October 6th courtesy of First Look features, all sorts of goodness landed in our mailboxes today to share with you ... our dear and sexy, sexy, readers.
Yes, it's fan-made and totally goofy, but we got a kick out of it and thought a lot of you would as well. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a mash-up of all three Twilight Saga: New Moon trailers, plus some Volturi footage from Comic-Con, courtesy of 777gb.
This is a freaking GREAT season for horror fans. It's true that every fall sees the release of some great genre titles, but with films like The Stepfather, Messiah of Evil (making its first non-budget DVD debut), and, of course, Hardware receiving quality releases, it's truly a cause for celebration. Today Severin Films is attempting to whet our palates with a snippet from the 60-minute documentary offered on their Hardware disc...
As you well know, we've been talking up Oren Peli's Paranormal Activity (review here) since the very beginning, and we are proud as hell to be one of the first sites to get the ball rolling for this film. Now that plans have officially been firmed up, it's only right that we actually bring you a free Dread Central sponsored screening! Are you ready, Boston?
Solomon Kane will debut tonight as part of the Toronto International Film Festival's Midnight Madness series, and to help prime audiences for what they're gonna see, a new promotional featurette has just popped up online.
