LA Weekend of Horrors: Choice Cuts

Earlier this week we pointed you in the direction of the Fearsome Fango Film Show Line-Up for the upcoming Los Angeles Weekend of Horrors running April 17-19, 2009. Now that the full event schedule is live, we thought we'd point out a few "choice cuts" (i.e., those panels that we here at Dread Central are either moderating, participating in, or just generally think you shouldn't miss).

A Bloody Video That Will Save Your Life!

Rarely am I at a loss for words, but this? You HAVE to see this video. It's like Faces of Death meets on the job training. Don't know who made it or where it is from, but here at Dread Central we care about you. You're well-being is our number one concern! It's our responsibility to share this!

Set Visit: The Crazies

It's a quiet Midwest town like any other. Every inhabitant knows the business of everyone else, and most have known each other all their lives. Now something has come. The 2nd grade school teacher stops in mid-sentence and eyes up the flagpole, thinking it a good idea to impale his students on it.

A Darker Shop of Horrors?

Talk about amazing timing. Just last night I watched the new Rifftrax DVD of Roger Corman's original Little Shop of Horrors (not a bad effort, but I couldn't help but think it's a little hard to do funny commentary for a film meant to be funny). Now today I read the film is being remade again, but this time as a straight-up serious horror flick. Seriously. I mean, seriously?

Eli Roth Discusses Thanksgiving Feature

Every once in a while things work out like the fans are hoping. It's been almost exactly two years since Grindhouse was released and we were treated to its fake trailers, which included Eli Roth's well received "Thanksgiving", and today we learned that a feature length version could very well become a reality.

H2: See Myers in Mid Rampage

Yet another still from Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 has show up online, but this one at least is sporting some good old fashioned mayhem. Dig it!

First Stills from Wrong Turn 3

Wrong Turn 3 will be coming at fans like a speeding freight train this fall, and to celebrate this hopefully auspicious occasion, Fox blessed us with the first stills from the film.

Cold Spots: The Octagon House

Fond Du Lac, WI - You are running, not just for your life, but for those of your children and their children after. Traveling by night, you listen for the bay of dogs on your trail, watch for the faint glow of torches. They're coming, close on your heels, and relentless. In the darkness, across the hostile land, stands a man with a lantern, beckoning. You follow because it's what you've been told to do.

Set Visit: Drag Me to Hell - Part 2

These terrible things quite likely involve the creative mind of Greg Nicotero, a monster maker of daunting credits who also worked with Raimi in the second and third Evil Dead films. “This is back to basics for Sam,” Greg told us. “We've got possessed characters, we've got some rotting corpses.”

Dark Shadows Film in 2010?

You know, you can find the craziest things in Japan. A plethora of Godzilla figues, video games based around spanking, great sushi, and even scans of Japanese Warner Bros. press schedules which apparently have the next Burton/Depp collaboration on Dark Shadows listed for a winter of 2010 release.

Rampling and Hawkins Join Keira Knightley on Never Let Me Go

Two more actors have signed up to help the stunning Keira Knightley fend off those damned nasty organ harvesters in Fox Searchlight's upcoming film Never Let Me Go.

Cam Gigandet Finds a Roommate

Hey Twilight fans. Yeah, we know you're here. It's OK, we won't tell. Cam Gigandet has just signed on for another thriller for you to go crazy over (assuming of course that Twilight fans go crazy for things not having to do with sparkling vampires)!

Chicago Horror Society to Honor Women of Horror

Listen up, Chicago-area horror fans! Looking for something charitable to do but still want to stick close to your horror roots?

More From Rob Zombie on H2

Yet more interviews, one with the man himself and the other with Scout Taylor-Compton, have popped up for Halloween 2. You know, just in case you haven't already overdosed on the myriad of stuff out there already.

First Image from The Crazies

Overture Films has released the very first image from Breck Eisner's remake of the George Romero classic The Crazies, and we have it for you hot and fresh out of the old loony bin!
