It's that time of year again -- tickets for the 2009 Twin Peaks Festival are now on sale! The dates for the 17th annual event are July 24-26, 2009, and as always, it's being held in North Bend, Washington.
We got some excellent news this morning from Adam Green, one of the producers of Grace, a film we've been following closely.
Florence, OR - Over a cliff once known as the Devil’s Elbow there shines a light to warn ships of approaching danger. Shining more than twenty miles out to sea, her light pierces the night and keeps those unfamiliar with the Oregon coastline safe from the cliffs and jagged rocks. But behind her light, something walks in the night, her eyes red with tears, her cry plaintive. Just who she was, or why she remains is something of a mystery with very few clues. But few doubt that she is real, having been sighted for more than sixty years.
William Malone chatted up the boys at Arrow in the Head about his latest cinematic offering, Parasomnia, and during the course of the conversation he mentioned what he’d do if the film's distributors wanted more from this nightmare world.
Wait a second, wait a second; first she gets naked, now she’s in a horror movie? Is it possible that 80’s pop icon Tiffany is actually … cool? I guess in this crazy mixed-up world almost anything is possible, no matter how far-fetched it may seem.
I’ll be honest, we’ve not heard a whole helluva lot about Edward Anderson’s Shuttle round these parts, save for the occasional news story here and there we’ve done on it, but apparently it’s gotten some good reviews via its festival screenings over the last year or so.
Neil Gaiman got to chatting with the boys at Sci Fi Wire about the recently announced choice of director for his latest acclaimed novel, The Graveyard Book, Neil Jordan. From the sounds of it this book is going to be in very good hands when it comes to getting on screen the way its creator wishes.
Maybe you didn’t notice it, but I know we sure as hell did; Splinter was supposed to hit DVD on January 27th. It didn’t. Why the hell is that, do you ask? No idea, but Magnolia will now be releasing Toby Wilkins’ badass monster movie on April 14th.
It’s been a very long time since we heard about any progress of the film version of the Boom! Studios’ Tag comic, so its fortunate that the guys over at BD’s Graphic Content got their hands on some news this weekend.
The long-untitled Satanic project from Platinum Dunes and writer Scott Kosar (The Amityville Horror), which we last told you about back here, finally has a name according to the freaks at Sci Fi Wire; it's called The Sacrifice. Simple, to the point; I like it!
Other than the news we gave you the other day about NECA nabbing the toy license for Dead Space and Devil May Cry, there’s not been a helluva lot of news out of this year’s UK Toy Fair, but there are a lot of images of what’s coming to us in the next year.
The boys at Bloody Disgusting got to chatting with the Platinum Dunes folks about the future of the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street movies, and basically got a lot of vague information that I’m sure fans will eat up anyway.
** UPDATE: Sony has won the bidding war. Rejoice!** Ever heard the term “spiritual thriller”? I hadn’t either, but Variety used it today in their story about a new book called Angelology, the debut novel by Danielle Trussoni (pictured), which is in the midst of a bidding war between Sony, Warner Bros. and Universal that could last into the weekend.
The UK Toy Fair is going down in the UK (duh) as we speak, and the sharp-eared, eagle-eyed denizens of Action Figure just caught wind that NECA has nabbed three new game licenses, all of which should make your fanboy hearts a-twitter with happiness, as they do mine.
Wow. I remember a cubicle I had at one of my old jobs that I hung a piece of teaser art for The Blair Witch Project (the one on your right, as a matter of fact) in, which always got a lot of attention from fellow co-workers who had heard about this supposedly “found footage” of a group of campers who run afoul of the titular woods-dwelling hag.
