We’ve all seen making of documentaries on our favorite DVDs, some you could say good enough to be their own features; Full Tilt Boogie comes to mind as one example. However, this is the first I’ve heard of a making-of actually being a feature, and it sounds like it’ll be a good one.
I’m sure you’ve seen I Am Legend by now; hell, judging by the box office I’d bet some of you have seen it twice. So have we and we’re going to goddamn well talk about it in the latest edition of Dinner for Fiends!
You may have heard about the overseas success of The Orphanage (review) in its native Spain, where it’s been nominated in 14 categories for the country’s equivalent to the Academy Awards, the Goya Awards. But just because the film is doing well doesn’t mean its director, Juan Antonio Bayona, wants to revisit it anytime soon.
It’s a little thing, really, but could become something more as these things always do. This morning Rob Zombie posted a question to his MySpace friends; ”How many of you would like to see a full length movie of Werewolf Women of the SS?”
Now this is a cool idea; document a young priest as he follows in the footsteps of Father Merrin before him and learns the ancient rites of exorcism, as laid down by the Cahtolic law. All right, fine, I doubt a fictional priest played by Max von Sydow was actually any inspiration for the priest at the heart of The Rite: The Making of a Modern Day Exorcist, but that doesn’t make the idea any less cool.
They should just call this one The Kryten Syxx Story as the plot is so familiar to our reporter, I’m sure he’s going to pursue some kind of rights issues.
The jury is still out on when we'll see The Chin's latest project My Name is Bruce hitting theatres or stores (“Bruce Talks Home Invasion” – November 2007), but it is always a good sign when the PR starts rolling heavy down the road.
So in an interesting decision to promote this week’s release of Rob Zombie’s Halloween on DVD, the media site Buzznet got the new Michael Myers, Tyler Mane, to reprise his role as the maniacal killer only this time instead of looking for a relative to murder, he’s just trying to fit into the rat race. Losing the mask might help.
Oh YouTube ... is there nothing we cannot find there? Wonderful videos of kittens to obese girls attempting to be hot deck the halls of that wonderful site. OK, a lot of those videos suck, but today we haven one that doesn't. The video quality may be crap, but it since when can you ever have enough Cloverfield? Check out the new TV spot below.
In case you couldn’t tell by the huge banner on our front page, we’re pretty damn excited about this year’s Fear Fest lineup: Neil Marshall, Robert Englund, Tom Holland, Michale Graves … yeah, it’s going to be an epic year that is sure to top last year’s event and then some.
Too many people just want to give gifts to their semi-acquaintances and tolerated ones that are all nicey-nice and safe. Well not us! We like to give the gift of HELL(boy)!
Though most of you’ve probably never even heard of it, those who have will be happy to know that Karaoke Terror (review) has finally got a DVD release date via Synapse Films according to KFC Cinema; April 29th, 2008!
Those of you who are huge fans of Scott Smith’s novel The Ruins (review) may have some issues to take with Carter Smith’s (no relation) adaptation of the book to film form.
Who really created the Earth? Some say God, others blame our existance on science. Personally, I think it all falls on the shoulders of the red bastard, Satan. Obviously Dogville director Lars von Trier feels the same way.
If One Missed Call's official site hasn't reeled you in then maybe a plethora of new and old stills will. Don't worry, some of these new images are far more exciting than the previous few we saw not long ago ("One Missed Call & Four Pics" – December 2007). Check 'em out below and see the pic in theatres on January 4th.
