I’m writing this from Wheatfield, Wyoming, in the middle of nowhere, a very small, cool town, on a road trip to celebrate the constantly changing state of being alive. This weekend I’ll be celebrating other things, as I wend my way to Seattle for Crypticon. I’ve never done this show before, but my experience of horror cons is that they’re even wilder than comic cons.
Two years ago Transformers was a box office smash. The Asylum countered with the post-apocalyptic mockbuster Transmorphers. The Transformers return to the big screen in a sequel on June 24th. The Asylum counters with the prequel Transmorphers: Fall of Man on DVD June 30th. The first trailer has also fallen to give us a taste of all the human hauling ass away from the rampaging robots action to come.
We've been following the new slasher flick Cornered! starring Police Academy icon Steve Guttenberg and Donnie Darko's James Duval. Spotlight Pictures is doing distribution duty for Cornered!, and now they've given us a trailer that shows real promise.
From the "FINALLY!!" department (and Fangoria's WOH) comes news that ALL of us have been waiting for.
So many people working in the horror industry are there because they grew up being a fan. However, for writer/producer Dan Farrands, his reason for pursuing his dream came from a fan letter response he received when he was 14 years old.
Forget bus benches and billboards. The buzz behind District 9 just got a helluva lot louder with the announcement that Peter Jackson, one of the producers, will be making his first ever San Diego Comic-Con appearance in support of the film, which Sony is releasing August 14th.
Eugene, Oregon-based production company Merchant Films has wrapped filming of its sophomore feature, Something Wicked, and at the same time shared a slew of production stills and behind-the-scenes photos on the Facebook page of its Follow a Film social marketing campaign.
For those of you who live in the UK (or live anywhere and have an all-region player), on Tuesday, June 8th, DNC Entertainment will be releasing 7eventy 5ive on UK Region 2 DVD. It stars Rutger Hauer and promises to be "terrifying and alarming, heavy on brutal deaths [and] bloody splatter."
Now this is how we like to wrap up a Friday! One remake that I'm actually looking forward to is Louis Leterrier's version of the creature-laden classic Clash of the Titans, which is filming as we speak. To take us into the weekend, we now present to you another, much more badass still of Sam Worthington as Perseus. ROCK! Special Features
What better way to start off a weekend than by downloading and sampling a bit on Nancy's psycho-thriller goodness! That's right, folks! Lock up the kids, bolt the doors, and dim the lights! It's time to see what kind of hazards can come from a not-so-innocent cyber affair!
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th (2009) just around the corner, the good folks at Warner Brothers have sent over several clips for you guys to dig into!
I bet you can't wait to listen to all the rockin' tunes provided by Captain Clegg and the Night Creatures that will be laced throughout the sequel we've all been waiting for -- Rob Zombie's Halloween 2!

We've been talking about Night of the Living Dead: Reanimated for a while now here on Dread Central, and today Wild Eye Releasing unveiled a brand spanking new teaser poster to get us all sweaty with anticipation for its winter 2009 release.
Though it was just announced and I'm still loving the original, Left 4 Dead 2 is already on the top of most fans' most anticipated game of the year lists, and with good reason -- it looks amazing!
