It's Alive Stills and Trailers

With the It's Alive remake hitting home video on Tuesday, October 6th courtesy of First Look features, all sorts of goodness landed in our mailboxes today to share with you ... our dear and sexy, sexy, readers.

See All Three New Moon Trailers in One!

Yes, it's fan-made and totally goofy, but we got a kick out of it and thought a lot of you would as well. Here, for your viewing pleasure, is a mash-up of all three Twilight Saga: New Moon trailers, plus some Volturi footage from Comic-Con, courtesy of 777gb.

Hardware Blu-ray/DVD Preview

This is a freaking GREAT season for horror fans. It's true that every fall sees the release of some great genre titles, but with films like The Stepfather, Messiah of Evil (making its first non-budget DVD debut), and, of course, Hardware receiving quality releases, it's truly a cause for celebration. Today Severin Films is attempting to whet our palates with a snippet from the 60-minute documentary offered on their Hardware disc...

Dread Central Presents: Paranormal Activity in Boston! See it FREE!

As you well know, we've been talking up Oren Peli's Paranormal Activity (review here) since the very beginning, and we are proud as hell to be one of the first sites to get the ball rolling for this film. Now that plans have officially been firmed up, it's only right that we actually bring you a free Dread Central sponsored screening! Are you ready, Boston?

New Solomon Kane Featurette

Solomon Kane will debut tonight as part of the Toronto International Film Festival's Midnight Madness series, and to help prime audiences for what they're gonna see, a new promotional featurette has just popped up online.

Night of the Living Dead in 3D Again?

Didn't we just get treated to a 3D remake of Night of the Living Dead a few years ago, and didn't it pretty much suck to high heaven? Here we are once again, and for the record George A. Romero has nothing to do with this production either. This time it's being produced by Simon West, director of the abysmal remake When a Stranger Calls and the equally atrocious Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

TIFF '09: Midnight Madness Day Five

The Toronto International Film Festival '09 is in full swing, and you'll be happy to know that Dread Central has partnered with the fine folks over at The Substream to bring you daily video coverage of the event that will feature news, interviews, and maybe even a couple of reviews here and there.

Fox 2000 Readying The Passage for Ridley Scott

Normally the name Ridley Scott mentioned in the same sentence as the words "new vampire film" would have us giddy like a schoolgirl, but we're still busy celebrating the man's return to the Alien franchise! Yet, there is indeed life after Xenomorphs, and Fox 2000 is busy developing a project that would reunite the director with screenwriter John Logan, who worked with him on Gladiator.

Pet Sematary Director Developing a Case of Hydrophobia

Director Mary Lambert is leaving the Pet Sematary behind in lieu of some more oceanographic terrors. Seems she has developed a serious case of Hydrophobia, the title of a new chiller about a killer mermaid that can only be stopped by a man afraid of water. Think of it as the anti-Splash.

First Details: The Reef Shows its Teeth

Sharks are probably one of the scariest creatures on the planet. There's just no reasoning with them. You're not a person in their cold black eyes. You, just like everything else in their way, are simply lunch. Hell, depending on your size, maybe even just a snack! It's that very justified fear of these creatures that the filmmakers behind The Reef hope to tap into.

Tooling Around with the New Saw VI Poster

Yet another new one sheet for Kevin Greutert's first entry into Lionsgate's favorite Halloween franchise, Saw VI, has debuted today, showcasing a few of Jigsaw's favorite tools of the trade.

MEGA Joss Whedon Update

Joss Whedon is a busy man - impressive to me since I'd written him off as a one trick pony after the Buffy comic all but ended my enthusiasm for the series.

Corey Feldman to Host the Chiller Eyegore Awards

Tommy Jarvis himself, Corey Feldman, has been tapped to host the October 2nd Chiller Eyegore Awards, the opening night celebration of Universal Studios Hollywood’s “Halloween Horror Nights.”

Make Way for the Maelstrom International Fantastic Film Festival!

While there’s been no shortage of horror festivals in recent years, it’s cool to see another one taking shape, this one in Seattle, WA. If you’re in the area, or you’re up for a road trip, this one looks like it’s going to be worth checking out!

No Right Turn Secures a DVD Release

We first heard about No Right Turn last March, just prior to its debut at the CPH:PIX film fest in Copenhagen. Things must have gone well for writer/director David Noel Bourke and crew there because they recently landed a DVD release date of December 1st for the US and Canada.
