It’s time like this I wish I had cable ... it’s times like every other time I’m glad I don’t, though.
Got your shiny new Day of the Dead remake DVD and hungry to get it signed? Dark Delicacies has your fix on their menu!
Well, what do ya know ... there's been a revision for the DVD of Teeth (review).
/Film has something in store for fans of the upcoming Wolfman remake starring Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins. A reader of the site was present at one of the exterior locations in England and took plenty of photos of the props and buildings.
The American remake of REC, known as Quarantine, could go a long way if it stays as creepy as the original. It has a strong leading lady, and director John Erick Dowdle knows what he's doing when it comes to cinema vérité. You'll know what I am talking about whenever The Poughkeepsie Tapes is released.
Remember The Scream Factory announcement we alluded to last week (“What is The Scream Factory?” – April 2008)? Well, it's here! The alliance of film, music, literary and comic book pros has a lot available for horror fans over at Wowio, and it's all free! So what do they have in store for you? Let's take a look at the list:
Yes, the Best Worst Movie ever, Troll 2, has reached such a mountain of cult stardom that it's easy to forget just how bad the movie really is. But who cares? The thing is a blast to watch, and what better way to do that than with the cast and crew?!
Well, looky here; seems Darren Lynn Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera found itself its very own website, all official like. See what happens when you look away from your movie for one second? They grow up so fast…
I missed the whole thing, something I’m kicking myself for now, but I hear the Fright Night panel at Fear Fest 2 was, in a word, epic.
Ryan (Abominable) Schifrin’s Spooks comic is going strong, and the third issue is on its way to stands this Wednesday, April 9th! Schifrin was cool enough to send over the cover and a stack of preview pages just for you Dread Central-ites, so dig on ‘em below! And don’t forget to talk about the comic in the official Spooks forums, also only on Dread Central!
Got the tagline for this baby all worked out: ”The dictionary defines anamorphis as a drawing presenting a distorted image that appears in natural form under certain conditions, as when viewed at a raking angle or reflected from a curved mirror … you will define it as TERROR!” I guess that doesn’t work, since the name of the film is Anamorph, but no one’s really gonna rush home to check it, will they?
It seems like it's been a long time since there’s been a real celebration of Clive Barker as an artist. Even though everyone always talks about the author/director as an incredibly accomplished painter, mostly we have to wait for an Abarat book to see what he’s been up to.
An interesting lineup of new horror DVDs is coming your way this Tuesday, April 8th, 2008...
While the teaser itself isn’t terribly effective, the plot for City of God helmer Fernando Meirelles’ latest film, Blindness, is more than interesting enough to put it on my “must watch” list.
Another pretty face is poised to join Patrick Lussier’s My Bloody Valentine remake, which you may recall is shooting in the third dimension. The Hollywood Reporter got word this morning that Jensen Ackles (“Supernatural”) is set to join the cast.
