As with My Son, My Son in the story below, thanks to the official site for the Toronto Film Festival (which runs from September 10-19), we're getting more details on the movies that are being screened, including one that's generated quite a bit of buzz in its homeland of Australia, Sean Byrne's The Loved Ones.
Now that the Toronto International Film Festival is fast approaching, we're getting better looks at a few of the films that will be playing there, including Werner Herzog's My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done? Five new stills from the film hit online today, and they definitely convey a sense of unease -- but what else would you expect from Herzog and his long-time cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger?
Thanks to the success of such vampire-based tales as The Twilight Saga and "True Blood", it should come as no surprise to anyone that studios are taking another look at the granddaddy of them all, Lestat de Lioncourt, the main character in Anne Rice's The Vampire Chronicles.
For those of you who are as amped up as we are for the Season 5 debut of "Supernatural" on September 10th, The CW has unleashed a very brief (10 seconds only) promo spot entitled "Sounds Like Hell".
The time for gamers to blow the piss out of the Nazi undead is right around the corner, and to celebrate this gore-soaked occasion, Activision has dropped the official Wolfenstein launch trailer on us!!
Lord knows we don’t need another version of Straw Dogs; we just don’t. In fact, if there’s a common thread among all remakes these days (yes, even the good ones), it’s that they’re pointless. I’m sure director Rod Lurie (The Last Castle) will put together a competent enough film, but really: Why?
A new one-sheet for one of our most anticipated movies coming this October just hit online today that beckons you to grow a pair. Not sure how that affects the ladies out there but we shall see.
Finally the franchise featuring horror's favorite hunters is getting itself back on track and leaving the poorly written and lit world they have come to know all too well.
It's Friday, and that means one thing: HBO is giving us two sneak peeks at this weekend's "True Blood" episode!
Few films that we cover here at Dread Central seem as crazed as Noboru Iguchi's RoboGeisha so we're pleased to provide both a first look at the new poster and the second trailer for the flick.
Tuscaloosa, AL - Who is the crazy woman with a gentle touch, who tucks the children in at night and sings songs in the darkness? Who is the drunken idiot who falls down the stairs and kills himself? And what is the cause of the mysterious fires that annoy the fire department because they simply aren't there? What is the cause? Is it madness? Alcohol-fueled dementia? Or is it rage over a purposefully ignored last request? In Tuscaloosa, Alabama, you never know the cause. It might be all three.
Just got another update on the progress of one of the more ... well ... batshit nuts looking films we've been covering lately from the director himself, James Morgart. The film in question is called simply Won Ton Baby, and if you aren't aware of this little crazed gem yet, then, brother, you're in for one hell of a trip!
It's been a while since we've heard from our good friend Michael Bartlett (The Zombie Diaries), but thankfully he dropped us a line tonight with some teaser artwork and information about his and co-director Kevin Gates' next film, Timeless.
Ready for another two-fisted horror tale? Then your wait is over!
