What happens when you head out in the woods to play an innocent game of paintball and then find yourself being stalked by someone with live ammo and a blatant disregard for the rules of the game? Things get bloody and you get our attention, that's what!
The fine ladies, gentlemen and ... others ... at Top Cow Comics have offered up a four-page preview of Witchblade #123, which hits shelves on Wednesday, January 14th. For those of you not following along, the story goes a bit like this;
The minds behind F.E.A.R. 2: Project Origin have just released some brand-new footage showing one of the cooler aspects of the game, which is out on February 10th, 2009; the Elite Powered Armor (EPA) suit. Sure, there are some creepy and ghostly aspects to this sequel, but you it’s obvious you’re going to need some serious firepower to deal with ‘em.
The guys over at Quiet Earth dug up the trailer for a new Aussie flick called Nine Miles Down, which comes to us from Storm Warning/Long Weekend screenwriter Everett de Roche and Mute Witness helmer Anthony Waller. That’s a very sexy pedigree, if you ask me.
Aberdeen, WA - Stopping in to an historic old building for a bite to eat can be a dicey game. On the one hand, the food is great and the atmosphere is second to none. On the other, however, there’s something there that you can’t quite put your finger on. Maybe it’s the phantom figures of scantily-clad ladies that lurk in the upper floors. Might be the miserable-looking sailors who disappear before anyone can ask them what ship they’re on. More than likely, it’s the bartender.
Yetis, valentines, vampire, werewolves, dinosaurs; the small amount of horror DVDs hitting shelves on Tuesday, January 13th, 2009 have a helluva lot to offer!
The first “official” TV spot for Friday the 13th has appeared thanks to the guys at The Movie Box, which you can feast thine eyes upon below. The MPAA recently gave the Platinum Dunes redux the coveted “R” rating, so any fears of them going for the cheap shot and looking for a PG-13 may be allayed.
All right, more small news on Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2, which for some reason we’re just going to keep telling you about. Most filmmakers would wait till all their cast is in place before making announcements, but where’s the fun in that? Zombie’s fans need to know what’s going on right now, lest they be distracted by something shiny out of the corner of their eye.
Psychotronic filmmaker Ray Dennis Steckler lost his battle with heart disease on January 7, 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada; he was 70 years old. With his passing so goes Cash Flagg, his hoodlum alter ego and star of Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies, The Thrill Killers, Lemon Grove Kids Meet the Monsters and Wild Guitar.
I love the horror industry. When a good looking splatter fest is on the horizon, the excitement builds and everyone from the casual fan to the creators of the film seem to celebrate together. When it is all said and done, there are plenty of stories to be told. This one is a quickie, but its hysterical none the less. This week My Bloody Valentine 3D had some sneak preview screenings across the country for blood thirsty creeps. At these screenings, you'll often be approached by PR Reps for the film company asking what you thought of the movie.
In case you missed it elsewhere, Lionsgate and After Dark Films have already announced the street date for the Horrorfest 3 DVD box set; March 31st,2009. Not only that, but they already have the box art for all 8 and the box set ready to go as well! Use the store below to pre-order one, two, six, or all of them through Evilshop! You’ll be thankful you did.
Like it or not, deny it or not, Twilight is a phenomenon. Comparisons have been made to it being Harry Potter for girls. I'd say it's more like a Star Wars prequel for girls - a not-so-good movie based on a hugely popular property that hardcore fans are determined to love regardless of how not-so-good it is.
It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anything from SOTA, but I have to say it is nice that when they do drop us a line, it’s because a very cool, very big new horror from the mind of Lovecraft has come to life again.
Now that we’ve all had a chance to see Craig Singer’s follow up to Dark Ride, the Horrorfest feature Perkins’ 14, I’m sure the prominent question in everyone’s mind is; what is he doing next? Well, I’m glad you asked!
