Looks like after a bit of a bad spell zombies are once again gaining momentum in Tinsel Town, catching up with the vampires who have been ruling the proverbial cinematic roost. As big fans of the living dead, this brings more than just a little smile to our collective faces. If you've never heard of James Farr's Xombie, then, brother, you have been missing out! Though if this following news comes to fruition, we're fairly certain you won't be missing out for too much longer!
The 2009 Shriekfest Film Festival has released an update to its recently announced list of film and screenplay finalists; this time, it's a rundown of some of the talent scheduled to be involved in the event in order to represent their films.
So Joel Schumacher's latest film Blood Creek has been dumped into a handful of second-run and two-dollar theatres by Lionsgate without so much as a peep of notice. It's a wonder then how it got itself such a badass poster.
With REC 2 (review here) officially kicking a copious amount of ass during TIFF '09, it was only a matter of time before we'd get an official English subtitled trailer of our own. Well, it's here, and holy shit is it badass!
We hear a lot from horror fans that "everything happens in LA or New York; how about something for those of us in-between?" Well, it's not quite the Midwest or the Mountain States, but folks in and around Richmond, Virginia, have one helluva cool event to look forward to!
We are so stoked for Zombieland (review here) that we can barely contain ourselves. A new clip just surfaced over at MySpace today that does a lot to feed our fervor!
Joining the remake cavalcade is a retelling of Tony Scott's 1983 vampire flick The Hunger. Not surprising considering how vamps are Hollywood's new "it" things. The news was teased today via THR, and the only detail we know about it is that the film is now in development over at Warner Bros.
With the limited release of Paranormal Activity finally coming this weekend, the LA Times has published a great article on the two-year journey the film has taken from inception to release, detailing everything from the possible remake to Steven Spielberg's "experience" with it to its bumpy road to distribution.
October 6th sees the release of a new tome of zombie Armageddon from Max Brooks, Master of the Undead. One hundred forty-four pages await you from Three Rivers Press, the same folks that brought us The Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z, so we are virtually guaranteed another instant classic.
What with the over-saturation of all things fang-related thanks to the overwhelming success of franchises Twilight and "True Blood", does the world really need yet another vampire series? Hell, yes, as far as I'm concerned, especially if they're as charming and likable as the Web-based "buddy" horror/comedy known as "Bleed".
This Sunday, September 27th, marks the beginning of Season Four of the smash Showtime hit "Dexter", and if you happen to live on one coast or the other, you're in luck. You and your friends can catch the premiere before the premiere while sipping Dexter-themed cocktails!
If you weren't in Pittsburgh this past weekend, you missed one helluva good show. In fact, now that the alcohol has worn off, I find myself inundated with cool swag, great (if fuzzy) memories, and lots to write about. So here's how it all went down from September 18th-20th, 2009.
If you live in the LA area, are 18 or over, and like both dressing up and attending awards shows, this opportunity has your name all over it!

Searching for something different to do this Halloween? How about a trip to Vegas, where the Fangoria Trinity of Terrors will be taking place at the Palms Resort and Casino October 30th-November 1st?
Yet more Saw VI goodies have surfaced today, this time featuring Costas Mandylor (sing it, baby) obviously reflecting on the evil deeds, both past and present day, that he's been privy to.
