It’s not a huge update, but typing the word “chaw” is a helluva lot of fun so I’ll take what I can get. Variety is reporting this morning that Korean sales outfit Fine Cut has jumped on board the Seoul/San Francisco-shot horror/comedy Chaw to get the film out there and find some distribution.
Because we do so love the indie scene round these parts and always strive to encourage those who we know to kick ass to continue doing so, I thought it only made sense to hip you guys to the teaser for a film called Body in a Dumpster, which just reared its twisted head today.
Add another Jack Ketchum story headed for the big screen, and aside from The Girl Next Door this might be the most disturbing one yet...
It seems like certain low budget filmmakers just flip through their serial killer trading cards looking for inspiration.
Who knew that bobble heads would make such a big comeback in recent years? Then again, for the longest time we didn't have big-headed versions of the Terminator, Alien, and Predator.
First we heard from Dan Aykroyd about the very real possibility of Ghostbusters 3 happening, then word came down from Columbia announcing it was being developed, and now Harold Ramis, who co-wrote and starred as Egon in the first two, dropped a line to the Chicago Tribune with some details that I can
I really don’t know how I feel about this or pretty much any other poster that’s come out for Let the Right One In. They’ve all got the same general color scheme and don’t really say anything at all about the movie. I find it strange since there are so many iconic shots in this film that could be better utilized.
Seems the upcoming Children of the Corn remake, which started rolling in Iowa this week, has found itself a Malachai in the form of Cirque du Freak actor Daniel Newman, according to STYD this morning.
Douglas Preston and Mario Spezi’s best-selling serial killer novel The Monster of Florence has been picked up for a filmed adaptation by Tom Cruise and United Artists, according to Variety. Cruise will produce and possibly star in the film.
I’ve wondered off and on whatever happened to Mark Pellington, the man who brought us The Mothman Prophecies a few years back. Variety got the answer in the form of a new film Pellington’s been hired on to direct for New Line called Solace.
I've started looking forward to Friday nights, when I sip some vino and cull the stories that will comprise the Weekly Wrap-Up. Sometimes it is a struggle to find the thread that ties them together, but for the week of August 30-September 5, 2008, it was no problem determining the theme: Indies! Incredible, edible indies.
We first reported the news that VIZ Pictures will be releasing the live action Death Note (review) DVD on September 16, 2008, way back in June, but details on the disc were scarce. Today VIZ Media sent out a press release with the skinny on what we can expect.
Recently we caught up with Don Mancini and David Kirschner regarding the upcoming Child's Play remake so it was time to do a little diggin'! We all know that Dourif is coming back and that the duo want to bring the remake back to the film's scarier roots, but was there anything else to learn at this point?
Cons. Everyone and their brother seem to be putting one on these days, so someone’s going to have to do something really different to set themselves apart from the rest. Choosing a date with little to no competing shows around it is a good start, so in that sense the first annual Macabre Con is ahead of the game.
We’d be remiss to forget our horror-loving brothers across the pond, who I’m sure are just as eagerly looking forward to seeing more of Jigsaw’s antics in Saw V as we are. The sequel opens on October 24th in UK cinemas, and to give Dread some international flavor, I thought we’d share the UK quad poster with you guys today.
