First of all, thanks to every single one of you mother bitches that voted for us! DeadLattern.com put together a great list of categories and nominees for their first annual Splatcademy Awards podcast, and we were lucky enough to be one of ‘em. And guess what? We won!
Michael Laimo is one of the small number of authors I’ve discovered through the monthly publications of Leisure Books whose work has really done something for me. The first book I read by him, The Demonologist (review), impressed me; but it was his last novel, Dead Souls (review), that really made me sit up and take notice.
Wow, I really can’t believe it; After Dark Films is planning on doing a third 8 Films to Die For this year, despite how badly the second edition did at the box office. Maybe this year they’ll really get the promotional push out there instead of relying strictly on horror fans' word-of-mouth...
We last told you about Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Beyond the Grave almost exactly one month ago (“Beyond the Grave Ready to Roll!” - January 2008) and already the folks at Twitch have got their hands on some very promising behind-the-scenes stills from the production.
Now we can really begin to see just how weird it’s going to be to have a third Grudge film that’s not being directed by Takashi Shimizu: Neither Takako Fuji nor Yuya Ozeki will be returning for Toby Wilkin’s The Grudge 3
Usually I'm not thrilled when I hear about Dimension scooping up the rights for pretty much anything genre related, but I have to admit their output as of late has softened me a bit. So I'm actually happy they've got their hands on work from one of my faovrite new authors, Joe Hill.
You know the name Angry Alien by now, right? They're those weirdos who started doing 30-second re-enactments of our favorite movies with cartooon bunnies. They're brilliant, no? Now they've done a 60 (ish) second re-enactment of Grindhouse, complete with fake trailers! You should just click here to check it out cause it's pretty damn funny!
The news/rumors about Lars Von Trier's Antichrist project have been coming and going for about two years now with no real solid evidence that the film would ever enter production (“The Antichrist to Rise?” – December 2007). Usually any news about it would be met with a grain of salt, but this time there's actually something to smile about.
Yeah, they were up for an Oscar this year, but some of the nominees have monsters in their closets. A few on the list are respectable (Julie Christie in Don't Look Now) while others are downright Fangorian (Hal Holbrook in Creepshow). Mentioned among the departed: Bob Clark (Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things) and William Tuttle (Young Frankenstein, Mark of the Vampire) Best Actor: Michael Clayton George Clooney
Magnet, the new genre arm of Magnolia, sure is serious about nabbing new horror before anyone else can. Let the Right One In, the Swedish vampire film we first told you about here, has been scooped up by Magnet for North American release, they reported today.
Just a few weeks back we gave you guys the first word on a new film being produced by and starring The Signal’s A.J. Bowen (“Signal Star Talks Maidenhead!” – January 2008), and today those badasses over at Icons of Fright have the first look at the film’s gorgeous trailer!
The Eerie Horror Film Festival is proud to announce that this year’s event will be held in a spectacular new location. The Warner Theater in Erie, PA will graciously open its regal doors to the young film festival this October from the 9th to the 12th.
Below are the tasty treats coming to DVD this Tuesday, February 26th, 2008...
Ever since I got to see an early screening copy of Larry Fessenden’s eco-horror masterpiece The Last Winter (review), I’ve been dying to find out when the film will finally hit DVD, considering its theatrical run was limited at best. Today I found out and thought I’d share it with you guys! See how much we care?
It’s not huge news but since it’s post-Oscar time in Hollywood there’s not a whole helluva lot going on this morning, so why not make mention of it? If nothing else I can make fun of Rob Zombie’s Halloween one more time...
