**UPDATE: All right, we just got 100% confirmation from Warner Bros that they will NOT be releasing Trick 'r Treat. So I guess it's back to square one as the film looks for distro... it was fun while it lasted, though, wasn't it? ** I don’t want anyone getting too excited until we get something 100% official from Warner Bros, but a source very close to Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat just dropped us a line with a look at the brand-new poster for the film!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to Patrick Lussier’s remake of My Bloody Valentine, and not just because it’s going to be in 3D. No, the more I read about the more it sounds like it’s going to be a damn solid horror film.
A very small selection of horror DVDs will be out this Tuesday, August 12th but as you should all know; it’s not the size but what you do with it!
All right, before I go too far into this story about a possibility of Wolf Creek 2, let me say this; Greg McLean’s much-maligned giant crocodile film Rogue (DVD review) is now out on DVD, and you should be watchi
Word came down today via Twitch about a new giant animal movie that we’re definitely going to be keeping our eyes out for; it’s called Chaw and is coming at us straight outta Korea, yo. That’s a dope place for horror these days, hommie.
Filmmaker/actor Alan Rowe Kelly (I’ll Bury You Tomorrow, Blood Shed) just dropped us a line with the excellent news that his next effort, the short film “A Far Cry From Home”, will be debuting at the Dark Carnival Film Festival in Bloomington, IN!
Loyal reader Sam Hell dropped us a line this weekend, pointing us to some very cool DVD news for fans of old-school anthology horror shows.
Issue #81 August 2008 The recent death of Stan Winston struck a terrible blow in the horror community, catching almost everyone off guard by its suddenness. I have to commend Rue Morgue on not just getting this issue put together so quickly, but making it such an incredible tribute to the man who created so many iconic creatures.
This is one thing I love about our genre; if a horror film is popular enough with fans, you can make almost any merchandise related to it and have a built-in consumer base.
Though I found it dull and derivative, most people out there dug on The Strangers (review) and are probably curious what makes the DVD cut “unrated”. Personally, if it’s not a 20-minute Liv Tyler shower scene, I’m not interested. Considering the “unrated’ cut is only two minutes longer, I doubt we’ll be seeing that.
An interesting development went down yesterday that we’re still trying to get some kind of official details on one way or another. Warner Bros. sent out its fall preview to all us internet journalists, and though nothing specific was mentioned in terms of a release date, Mike Dougherty’s long-suffering Trick ‘r Treat was still on the list.
Want to see the first three minutes of Alexandrea Aja’s Mirrors? Well, as long as you're 17 years of age or older, you can see it right now just by scrolling down a bit! The guys at IGN got their hands on this bit of red-banded goodness, and I have to say it looks very promising.
August 2-8, 2008, turned out to be a rather slow week news-wise. But what it lacked in quantity, it definitely made up in quality. Smart hot chicks and a fresh look at some old favorites dominated the headlines.
