If you're reading this right now, then you are one of the millions upon millions of people who did not go to see Uwe Boll's In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale this past weekend. Don't worry because Uncle Creepy and I did, and you might be a little surprised to hear some of what we have to say about Dr. Boll's goofy $70 million fantasy epic. Some of what we say cannot even do justice to that which we saw and heard. Oh, Dr. Boll …
What makes a good torture porn film? Better yet, is there such a thing as a good torture porn film? Lord knows. In any event ever since the success of movies like Saw and Hostel, we've been drowning in them.
Doomsday is coming, we all know when (“Doomsday Gets a Date!” – January 2008) ... but what will it look like? What will the epic plague on Earth leave in its wake? Will the people who survived outside of the containment zone retain their humanity? Will the disease that drove the human race to near extinction be cured?
Three days to go until we find out if Cloverfield will live up to all the hype. Odd though that we haven't seen much in the way of mass marketing this week (aside from the creature spoilers I refuse to run ... as I want to keep the beast a secret). However, AOL/Moviefone did put up a video today that lets us get to know the character of Marlena a little more. There's no carnage or beasties, but it's something...
If you haven't noticed by now, I've been following Insomnifest closely (“Insomnifest Houses the Methodic” – January 2008). We've watched as the world's first online-only horror film festival grew from just a couple titles into a real multi-cultural gathering of horror. Now, with a tear in my eye, I bring you the final three films of Insomnifest.
Gentle Giant; now there’s a company I want making my collectibles. They’re the only ones out there who had the foresight to make a figure of the crawler from The Descent, even if it is a bust and not a figure (see it here).
Anyone who’s ever listened to one of our audio interviews with various horror celebrities should be familiar with the Dread Central theme; screaming guitar, spooky voice and all that.
I think this is probably the best cast, pay scale-wise, to ever be assembled for a movie that is, at its heart, about cannibals.
Ah, animal instincts. Usually when they take over, the shit ends up hitting the fan. That's exactly the case in the first adaptation of a Skipp and Spector novel, Animals.
Hellboy has existed as an indie comics staple for years now, converting even the most jaded “men in tights” comic collector. Mike Mignola’s gritty style celebrates times of noir shadowed by splash pages seemingly torn right from the Necronomicon itself. Suffice to say, the man is a unique talent.
"The entire auditorium was freaked out of their minds...people were actually physically shaking...". So said Andrew Kasch after catching a screening of Paranormal Activity (review) at this past Screamfest. He wasn't kidding.
It has been quite a while since we last heard about the Steven Goldmann's upcoming adaptation of the Trailer Park of Terror comics (“Trailer Park Teaser” – August 2007). We knew the film didn't hit any bumps, but news of the film's production wasn't rolling in.
First Doug Bradley was cast in John Harrison’s upcoming adaptation of Books of Blood, which was cool enough for fans of the once and future Pinhead. But who would’ve expected another Cenobite would be cast?
This one's for our UK readers; while yes, it sucks you’re not getting Cloverfield this Friday like we Yankees are (you only have to wait until February 1st, though), you are getting a movie a lot of U.S. horror fans are looking forward to a lot sooner than we are: All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.
