It still amazes me that a bloodless, talentless, pointless movie like Prom Night was able to make bank while a film far more worthy of our money didn't. I am, of course, talking about The Ruins (review).
The New York Asian Film Festival just announced this year’s lineup, and for horror fans there’s quite a bit to choose from, as usual. The fest will go down this June 20th–July 3rd at the IFC Center, then carry over from July 3rd–6th at the Japan Society.
The official site for Julian Doyle’s Chemical Wedding, the film based on a screenplay by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson, is officially online now, in preparation for the film’s UK debut on May 30th.
The first image from John Hilcoat’s The Road, an adaptation of the book by Cormac McCarthy, showed up yesterday over on a site called Row Three. As you can see, we have Viggo Mortensen attempting to comfort his son. Very touching.
Word has come through via Cannes this morning that director Lucrecia Martel is getting ready to follow up her movie Woman Without a Head (surprisingly, not horror) with an alien invasion movie that sounds pretty epic.
While searching through the tubes, I saw that IMP Awards uploaded several new character posters for Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Guillermo del Toro's sequel that will hit theatres on July 11th, 2008. These new one-sheets are definitely going to catch more eyes than just floating heads!
Nowadays it is difficult to get excited when a film has a header letting you know it is being brought to ya by the Executive Producers of The Ring and The Grudge. Anything that bears a brand like that from now on should be relabeled "The Newest Contestant for the 'Original Was Better' Prize".
UPDATEInstead of running an entire new story about it, I've decided to throw in the second international poster for The Happening in here. We found this one over at MPA Awards.
NBC has finally opened an official site for Fear Itself, the upcoming anthology series that debuts on June 5th. And I have to say it’s about damn time! In addition, they’ve also announced the order in which the first few episodes will air, and sadly it won’t be starting off with Stuart Gordon’s “Eater” as we had been told before. Here’s what to look forward to;
This past weekend our Film Ranch International friends, Andrew Allan and Andy Lalino, invited us out to a location where they were filming their newest venture, Brainjacked!
In this day and age it’s easy to find thousands upon thousands of videos online for pretty much anything that strikes your fancy, from “Two Girls and a Cup” to old commercials for He-Man toys, it’s all out there just waiting to be seen.
I got the chance to see Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story (review) in the best possible environment: a film festival. The Boston Underground Film Festival, to be specific. It’s a great documentary about a truly great man, both in show business and in life, and hopefully you’ll all get to see it very soon as well!
If you entered our ongoing Shock Festival contest but didn’t win last week, don’t think that means your idea wasn’t good enough! Romano’s got a lot of entries to choose from, and sometimes he even has to pick a runner-up for the contest.
For the past year or so, the guys behind fellow horror site Icons of Fright have been working on a documentary about the history of Psycho and its sequels called The Psycho Legacy. It’s a passion project for the boys, as they’re all huge fans of the films, and I'm glad we can finally share some of it with you!
