Finally Lionsgate has put together and gotten around to approving an official trailer for Darren Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera! I know you really want to check it out so I won’t bore you with jibba jabba.
One of literary horror's best friends, IDW Publishing, has sent out the word that on October 1st novelist Joe Hill's seminal Locke & Key: Welcome to Lovecraft is being released in hardback.
Now I don't know about you, but I'm pretty anxious to set Batman on fire as Scorpion. The chaos that's likely to ensue as the Mortal Kombat Universe collides with the DC Universe is likely to be one for the ages!
In advance of the premiere of Road to Hell at Fantastic Fest on September 22nd (which we first told you about here), the filmmakers have sent us an exclusive look at one of the film's gorier scenes.
Word just came down to us from a trusted source that the forthcoming DVD of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, which hits October 7th, will be giving a little something extra to those of you who shop Best Buy...

Director Brad Sykes dropped us a line this week with the good news that his latest film, the Steve Railsback-starrer Plaguers, was a rousing success during its premiere at Spain’s recent Estepona Fantasy & Horror Film Festival, taking home a Silver Unicorn Award for Best Screenplay.
How is it that we got a whopping one year out of the Fangoria Chainsaw Awards being a live event, but Spike TV’s Scream show keeps on trucking? I’m sure it comes down to a question of cash, but man it’d be nice to have a strictly horror-centric awards show again...
It’s nothing we’ve not heard before (most recently during Comic-Con); it’s just been a while since it was mentioned.
And the world has become just a little less magical ... Variety reports that Universal has sealed the deal on yet another film adaptation of a Sid & Marty Kroft production from the 70’s, “Sigmund & the Sea Monsters”.

At this time we here at Dread Central would like to take a moment to reflect on and honor the memories of our friends and family who were lost to us several years ago. "And wherever you've gone, and wherever we might go It don't seem fair, today just disappeared Your light's reflected now Reflected from afar We were but stones, your light made us stars" -- Eddie Vedder, "Light Years" God bless. - The Dread Central Family
We told you a few weeks ago about Joss Whedon's plan to film a new pilot for his upcoming TV show "Dollhouse" and then air the old one as the second episode, which seemed a bit strange in and of itself.
Far from it, actually! We got word from our friends at Quiet Earth that David Sasich's ambitious TV show "Lifeless" (official site) is still alive and kicking!
Anyone who has seen Wrong Turn 2 or Hatchet is very familiar with the names Joe Lynch and Adam Green. Part of what makes these two young filmmakers so credible within the horror genre is that first and foremost they are fans. They live it. They breathe it. They're two of our own. When the two of them get together, good things happen. Good and pretty damned funny!
