This week we were invited to talk to Blair Witch co-director and Otis (review) producer Dan Myrick about his upcoming projects.
Even though it’s been a while since we've heard anything about John Carl Buechler’s remake of his own 1986 film, Troll, that doesn’t mean the project is dead in the water. Indeed, casting is now in full swing and the search for Harry Potter, Jr. has begun!
The lead role for Wes Craven’s return to horror, the awkwardly titled 25/8, has been recast according to The Hollywood Reporter this morning.
Finally, someone’s taken the classic epic Meatloaf album from 1976 and written a screenplay around it! I’ve been waiting since I was a wee lad for someone to see the innate horror properties of Bat out of Hell and translate it to film...
Good news came over the wire today for a new director to whom we’ve been giving some extra attention as of late: Gabriel (review) helmer Shane Abbess (interview) has been tapped to direct Source Code for Universal.
Just like our extensive and exhausting (on our side, at least) coverage from last year (read it all right here), we’re compiling as much info as we can for the horror offerings at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, going down in NYC this April 23rd – May 4th!
Ever wanted to go to the San Diego Comic Con? It's pretty bad ass, but not everyone can afford to head out there each year. Luckily, Sony Pictures is offering two winners a chance at just that via their Quarantined Sweepstakes! Check out the widget below for more details.
Nature. It’s all around us, at all times, just watching … waiting for us to slip up and make its move so it can go … AMOK! Instead of going over the latest shitty remake or throwaway horror film in theaters, the topic for the latest Dinner for Fiends is something close to every horror fan’s heart; nature gone amok movies!
Ryuhei Kitamura's adaptation of Clive Barker's story Midnight Meat Train has seen its fair share of troubles trying to pull out of the station. Near name changes, delays and rumors were bouncing all around, and then word came that the pic was missing its May 16th arrival. Times were looking bleak.
Hack Movies, the filmmakers who brought us the amazing Colonel Kill Motherfuckers (review), will be bringing more indie features to us soon, but they need your support.
We've been telling you about it for months, and the official news has finally rolled in. Xavier Gens' Frontier(s) (official website), which was too extreme to be part of the After Dark film fest, will be having its limited theatrical release on May 9th at the following theatres:
Hammer Horror icon and all around great actor Robert Quarry needs your support.
Siren was a pretty unique little horror game. Released on the PS2, the game had a Ju-On- esque structure and a gameplay dynamic that let you “sight jack”; in other words you could see what other people, or in fact, the monsters roaming around the Japanese landscapes could see. Rather than focusing on combat, the game focused on stealth, so the ability to know exactly what someone else was looking at was pretty useful.
Creepy baby-themed films seem to be the thing to do nowadays, what with Inside freaking people out on DVD and four or five other baby-themed movies in the works. Now we can add Paul Solet’s Grace to that list.
Some final casting bits found their way online today for the upcoming Friday the 13th sequel, which starts rolling very soon over in Austin, TX under the direction of Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake helmer Marcus Nispel.
