San Diego Comic Con 2009 - Frightening Friday Schedule

Take a look at Friday's schedule for this year's San Diego Comic-Con; it's a solid genre lineup so far, with more on the way!

This Hog Looks Nifty

Nifty Entertainment, best known for the comic book The Cadre, has set its sights on the film industry, and one of its first film projects is the sci-fi horror flick The Hog, which is described as "Jaws meets Porky's". If the mecha-hog in the finished film looks as nifty in the finished film as it does in the production art, then this movie is definitely going to be hog wild.

Harper's Island Crashes Onto DVD

It's a shame "Harper's Island" did so poorly on TV. Truth is it's a solid little show filled with about as much violence as some R-rated films. Pretty shocking. Word of mouth just spread a little too late, and as a result the show's fanbase got to the party too late to save it from the sentenced to Saturday night Death Curse.

Halloween 2 Chicks Show You Their Hole

We know. Skanky headline, right? If you think that's bad, wait until you see the new behind-the-scenes photo just added to Zombie's MySpace page showing off his ... ummm ... hotties hangin' out at Uncle Meat's Java Hole.

New Pandorum Widget Spreads the Spooky

MySpace. Facebook. Friendster. Social networking sites are as ridiculously popular right now as they have been for the past few years. So how about you add a little more horror to yours?

San Diego Comic Con 2009 - Horrifying Wednesday and Thursday Schedules

Undoubtedly, the best is yet to come from this year's San Diego Comic-Con, but we've got the scoop on all the horrific delights you can look forward to during Preview Night and the first full day of the event.

Shutter Island Gets a One-Sheet

When the trailer for Martin Scorsese's Shutter Island hit the Web weeks ago, just about everyone was surprised at how genuinely spooky looking the film seemed to be. It's rare that a genre site like ours ever gets to cover a Scorsese film, so to say we were pleased is an understatement. That being said ... we now bring you the film's first official one-sheet.

More Talk from Ramis About Ghostbusters 3

Yet more chatter has surfaced from Harold Ramis talking all things Ghostbusters, including the proposed third film. Thankfully it's in video form so I don't have to transcribe the same old stuff he's been saying for the past several months once again.

Goriest Piranha Images Yet

Man, the waters on the set of Aja's Piranha 3D are really running red lately as several blood-soaked images have surfaced that truly give us an idea of what type of carnage to expect!

Terror Tweets: More Elm Street Pics

Samuel Bayer's remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street for Platinum Dunes officially wrapped today, causing much celebration amongst the cast and crew -- some of which producer Brad Fuller uploaded to Twitter.

Quench Your Thirst at Comic-Con

Gonna be at this year's San Diego Comic-Con and looking for something cool to do after dealing with the thousands of overweight people dressed in spandex as their favorite super-heroes? (Really? Fat Iron Man?) How about you get your asses to an exclusive screening courtesy of Focus Features of Park Chan-wook’s Thirst? Got your attention? We knew that would do the trick!

UPDATED: Want to See More of Jennifer's Body?

Of course you do! Just a few days ago, I bemoaned the fact that too few horror films these days aspire to be fun. I'm not necessarily sold on Jennifer's Body yet, but I do like the trailer. It's got a bit of a Hello Mary Lou - Prom Night II vibe, and if writer Diablo Cody didn't go overboard with her "hip and clever" dialogue (hard to tell from the trailer), this could be a total fucking blast.

Spoiler-y Image From The Final Destination

The Final Destination probably isn't going to reinvent the wheel, but man does it look like FUN. Today's update is just another gore pic, but it should help whet your whistle for the fast-approaching release date of August 28, when it will go head to head with that other horror movie.

Dread Central & Home Media Magazine Launch The Reaper Awards!

As we told you back in February, Dread Central is teaming up with Home Media Magazine to present the Reaper Awards 2009 this coming October, and we're now able to provide additional details and some info on how you can be involved.

Haunted Box of Shadows?

There's not a horror fan out there who's not intrigued by the prospect of real cases of things that go bump in the night. Sometimes said things can come in some really unexpected places. At least that seems to be the story from those associated with the brand new production of Box of Shadows, which is currently filming in LA.
