Who doesn't love zombies? They're cute, cuddly, and full of adorable maggots that are sure to feast on your flesh once it makes it down to the pit of their rotting bellies. It's about time one cable station hosted a program detailing their rich history! Enter Starz's Zombiemania!
The results are in from the recently concluded Sitges Film Festival, which ran from October 1st-12th in Catalonia, Spain, and Duncan Jones' hauntingly beautiful Moon (review here) left its competition in the dust.

While work officially began on what's shaping up to be the ultimate documentary on the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Never Sleep Again, a few weeks back, the project has just gotten its very own Twitter page; and if you follow it, you're gonna be getting all kinds of behind-the-scenes info on what we've got cooking up!
Hold on to your asses, folks! You're about to see a true rarity! Two international posters for Lionsgate's upcoming sequel Saw VI that are nowhere near as cool as the domestic ones. Who says we have to wait until 2012 for the apocalypse?!?
It is common knowledge that when directors hit box office gold, they can make whatever they wish for a follow-up film.

Here at Dread Central we celebrate Halloween for the whole month of October, as do our friends at Monster-Mania. And how better than spending some quality time with the original Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, at not just one ... but two ... awesome events?
**UPDATE: The final numbers are in, and Paranormal Activity was under-estimated. It actually came in FOURTH with $7.9 million!** After this weekend Paranormal Activity can officially be upgraded from a cult hit in the making to a pop culture phenomenon getting ready to explode. Made for around $11,000 and currently playing on only 160 screens, Paranormal Activity came in fourth at the box office with a - HOLY CRAP! - take of $7,900,695. That is a gargantuan $49,000+ per screen average, more than likely a record for a film on that many screens.

This one slipped under the radar, as sometimes it is difficult to tell what is purely fantasy and what nosedives right into our creepy neck of the woods.

Let's check the vitals...

It's only been on a few weeks, but we have to admit one of our newest guilty pleasures is The CW's "The Vampire Diaries", and the main reason is Ian Somerhalder's flamboyant portrayal of the oh-so-bad vamp brother Damon Salvatore. Which ensures that we'll be keeping tabs on his newly announced involvement in the "Gothic fairytale" Cradlewood.
If you ever turn off your iPod and listen to the radio, then you've no doubt heard Death Cab for Cutie's "Meet Me on the Equinox" single from The Twilight Saga: New Moon just about non-stop since it first debuted a few weeks ago. And now you can do more than just listen as the first music video for the song (and the film) has arrived online.
Who says the general public has no muscle? Horror fans? We're a rowdy and robust bunch. We like what we like and we aren't afraid to cause a ruckus to get what we want. That being said ... you wanted it? YOU GOT IT! Paranormal Activity is now poised to open wide!
