Oh, man, another short film competition. Though this one is definitely cooler than most as Unviersal is putting it on to coincide with this year’s Halloween Horror Nights. Uni have announced a new short film competition called “Where Nightmares Come Alive”, inviting perspective filmmakers to submit their shorts ranging in runtime from 90 seconds to three minutes. Certainly not a lot of time to get your story told, is it?
Mezco Toys sure didn't hold back at this year's San Diego Comic-Con! The company's Cinema of Fear line just grew with the inclusion of new figures of Freddy, Jason, Leatherface and more! Did I mention that one of Mezco's new 12" figures is based on the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th?! The Mezco booth also showed off the second series of figures from the Hellboy II: The Golden Army line.
Continuing to show off all NECA has to offer at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Nomad ran across their display of puppets from the upcoming stop-motion animated film Coraline, based on the book by Neil Gaiman. These aren't the figures NECA will make, but the actual puppets used in the actual film. Very cool! Apparently he went a little insane with the images this time, so there’s a lot to sift through. Enjoy!
The horror ... the ... horror ... NECA is bringing it with their latest lineup of incarnations of young, sweet Regan from The Exorcist and the one and only Ghost with the Most, Beetlejuice. Check out some new snaps of the figures courtesy of the mighty Nomad!
Continuing their trend of making badass videogame characters into badass toys, NECA showed off their new Gears of War figures at Comic Con, and Nomad snapped as many pics as he could so you can see just how cool they are.
Of course, NECA would get the license to make figures based on Rob Zombie’s upcoming animated film The Haunted World of El Superbeasto. They’ve done well with Zombie’s films in the past, so it only makes sense.
Tim Burton’s search for a girl to put through the looking glass has finally come to an end.
On display at this year’s Comic Con are a bunch of very cool costumes from the upcoming sequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Of course our man Nomad couldn’t stop taking pictures of what they had on hand, so check it out below!
See? All I have to do is ask and we get all sorts of cool stuff from the floor of Comic Con 2008! Check out some of the pics below, which feature new poster art for The Hills Run Red, Whiteout and Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, some weird random melty guy and two shots of a badass bust from Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds.
Well, they’re not exactly horror, but they are the first pics we’ve got from anyone at Comic Con, so we’ll run with it. Plus it is pretty cool on a purely geek level...
Now this might go down in history as one of the worst ideas in Hollywood history; remaking The Rocky Horror Picture Show. I mean, seriously, is this necessary? The original has been annoying me since it was released in 1975, why do we need another take on it?
Of all the updates flying around out there from the floor of San Diego Comic Con, some are far cooler than others. For example, STYD’s nabbing of the poster art for Rob Hall’s upcoming slasher flick Laid to Rest.
The news is already coming in from this year's San Diego Comic-Con, and the first article via the event involves Darren Bousman's much anticipated Repo! The Genetic Opera (review)!
Fangoria just dropped some awesome news for those of us eagerly awaiting Alexandre Aja's ghost story Mirrors.
School bullies, who doesn't remember them? Some people would get beaten up, their lunch money stolen or intimidated into doing the bully's homework. They got off easy. The bullies in my home town pulled guns, cut ya or pushed you down stairs. If only the weaker kids had some kind of help to take care of the bastards...
