Filmmaker Jeff Chitty dropped us a line today with the trailer for his latest movie, Survive!, which proves that more horror can come while visiting an auto repair shop than from just viewing the bill!
The box office results for current releases The Collector (review here) and Orphan (review here) are in, and although neither is burning up the charts, both are logging respectable showings.
Within the next few days we'll be taping our Dinner for Fiends mashup of Comic-Con, Orphan, and the newest kid on the block, The Collector. Before we get in our last words about Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan's latest slice-and-dice endeavor, we thought we'd give the cast and crew a chance to put out a few words of their own.
In the course of updating our San Diego Comic-Con 09 photo gallery, which already includes hundreds of pictures (with more to come) of horror collectibles, costumed attendees, and celebrities both on panels or just walking the convention floor, we realized the newsy bits gathered during the presentation for Showtime's "Dexter" went out via Twitter but never made it to the site. Allow us to correct that oversight immediately.

It isn't every day that a low budget indie zombie flick gets picked up for theatrical distribution, even if it is only a limited 6- to 15-screen release.

Such is the case for Marc Price's Collin (review here), which is being released by Kaleidoscope Entertainment.
During the San Diego Comic-Con we had a chance to sit down with Toby Whithouse, Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, and Aidan Turner, the creator and stars of "Being Human", a witty and thought-provoking look into the lives of three twenty-somethings and their secret double-lives … as a werewolf, a ghost, and a vampire, respectively.
Halloween is exactly three short months away, which means the evil masterminds behind Halloween Horror Nights are hard at work trying to think of new and different ways to scare the shit out of attendees. This year Jigsaw is waiting; prepare to step into his demented world.
Another day. Another batch of stills from Halloween II. Ok, getting a bit bored now. Please Rob ... save something for the movie! We feel as if we've seen the damned thing already.
