You know what’s wrong with horror these days? No, it’s not the glut of remakes. It’s not torture porn. It’s not Paris Hilton. Well, it might be Paris Hilton, but I don’t think so. No, the problem with horror today is there’s not enough Full Moon Features.
Well over a year ago when I first had the idea to do a podcast series of horror authors reading their works for our readers, the first people I approached when I wanted to get a sponsor behind it was Burbank’s Dark Delicacies. Really, when it comes to horror fiction, you don’t get any better than them.
Phil Mucci, pinball kingpin, pusherman, and director extraordinaire dropped a line in my mail box tonight that flipped me out in proper fashion. I'll let the release speak for itself.
I really have to question the wisdom of trying to market a horror film by throwing around Kevin Sorbo’s name. Sure, he’s the star of Something Beneath, a new direct-to-DVD horror on its way from Genius Products, but the only thing that’s going to do for the average horror fan is turn them away.
USA Today got their hands on six new images from John Hilcoat’s The Road, based on the best selling novel from Carmac McCarthy. Below you can see one of them, hit up USA Today or The Road’s database entry here on the site for the rest.
How many times, when you were being picked on as a kid, did you wish you could come back from the dead and get revenge on all those who wronged you? The dying thing is where I always came up short, but Alex Pettfyer won’t have that problem when he stars in Jon Wright’s The Tormented.

Just last week we heard that Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) was going to start some kind of continuing webisodes of behind the scenes videos. This week saw the first, and with that the flood gates started to open.
Paco Plaza and Jaume Balaguero, the men who brought us the cinéma-vérité delight known as REC (review), had a few choice words recently for Hollywood, Americans, and Quarantine.
The industry site Tracking B has confirmed a rumor going ‘round the net that the one and only Natalie Portman is set to topline David (Pineapple Express) Gordon’s remake of Suspiria.
Indie director Mel House dropped us a line yesterday with new pics from and an update on his Closet Space (review) follow-up, Walking Distance.
Is it wrong that I actually found this trailer to be somewhat entertaining? It’s the trailer for Return to Sleepaway Camp, which you may recall is finally seeing a DVD release thanks to Magnet, and while it’s pretty annoying at first, it almost redeems itself in the end.
If all goes well, 2009 just might be the Year of Coffin Joe. The Brazilian actor/director’s return to filmmaking, The Embodiment of Evil, will hopefully be hitting U.S. shores in some capacity, which means the man himself will be making more public appearances. But would you believe we’ll also be seeing Jose Mojica Marins ... animated?
After finally finishing Case 39, which seems like it’s been being made for years now, Antibodies helmer Christian Alvart won’t have to wait for the cash to come in to jump right into his next project, the Dennis Quaid/Ben Foster thriller Pandorum.
And the Comic-Con videos continue! Next up, the cast and crew of the upcoming monster opus Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer!
