Over the weekend I got a call from our man Andrew Kasch, video editor extraordinaire, who gave us a heads up on a new project he’s working on for Michael Felsher's Red Shirt Pictures, those badasses who’ve done supplemental material for DVDs like The Monster Squad and Hellraiser.
So as you all probably know by now, George Romero’s latest fan-dividing zombie film, Diary of the Dead, is finally coming to DVD on May 20th (get it here). To celebrate and help spread the word, our own Uncle Creepy sat down with Mr. Romero for a cool, very relaxed interview that you should give a listen to right here.
After seeing Rodrigo Gudino’s first two shorts, “Demonology of Desire” and “The Eyes of Edward James”, and hearing about his next experimental pic “The Facts in the Case of Mister Hollow”, I’ve been waiting for him to finally announce his feature directing debut for years now...
Some really good and some really, really bad horror DVDs are coming your way this Tuesday, May 13th. Be sure you read about 'em all so you know which is which! Botched (2008) Directed by Kit Ryan
Finally, we have been able to learn something about the new film from Gaspar Noe, l'enfant terrible responsible for Irreversible. The film is called Enter the Void, and recently the folks at Wild Bunch, who are producing it, put up a rather lengthy statement from Noe about it as well as the first images!
Though I still will hold on tightly to my lack of caring about anything X-Files, especially when the sequel got one of the most idiotic subtitles I’ve ever heard (I Want to Believe, in case you missed it), I know you guys will probably eat this up.
Lots of news names have been added to Patrick Lussier’s upcoming 3-D remake of the 80’s “classic”, My Bloody Valentine, and I gotta say that, if nothing else, the cast isn’t looking too bad...
Ah, God, here we go again. Someone out there wants to bring Witchblade to the big screen, though I really can’t understand the enduring popularity of this comic.
The first winner of our exclusive Shock Festival contest has been picked, and his film has been immortalized by the most badass poster artist in the last ten years, Stephen Romano! Read more to see if your idea made the cut!
Hey, all you Joss Whedon junkies, whose number I proudly count myself among. As you may have noticed, there’s more and more news out there about new TV shows being picked up, so of course the question of Whedon’s new one, “Dollhouse” with former Slayer Eliza Dushku, has been asked.
Nothing beats a well done bad guy. Evil wrongdoers have the potential of being some of the most effective and memorable characters in film. A truly worthy and ill-intentioned presence has an almost preternatural ability to change the very air pressure in a room; temperatures are higher, or colder, and things that should be familiar may seem out of place and not quite right.
Though it’s not exactly news, since it was mentioned in the first story we did on the show, Variety included Fox’s “pickup” of JJ Abrams’ new show, “Fringe”, in an article today about recent network acquisitions. The show is about an FBI agent working with an institutionalized scientist when a rash of weird shit starts going down. In layman’s terms.
Though early word on the film has been mixed at best, that shouldn’t stop us from getting excited about finally seeing some U.S. love for Dario Argento’s Mother of Tears (review), should it? No freakin’ way!
It’s been a while since anyone’s been talking about Texas Chainsaw Massacre, since the last thing that came our way tended to underwhelm and no plans for anything new have been in place. Then Fangoria talked to Kim Henkel, writer of the Tobe Hooper original, who gave them the word that he’s working on a new Leatherface adventure.
Now this is just too badass for words. Nevertheless, I will try to find some that will work ... Adam Green recorded a video update from the set of Paul Solet’s Grace just for Dread Central readers! Watch as Adam races around set with superhuman speed to find the director, then gets him chatting about the challenges of making a feature length film from a short!
