Slasherpool's Insomnifest (the world's first online only film festival) has been coming along rather nicely these past few weeks. Already several horror movies from around the globe are getting scooped up and even more are on their way.
Last week we gave you word on the first-ever Chilean zombie film, Descendents (“Zombies Get Chile” – December 2007), and today the freaky head trippers over at Twitch Film managed to get their bloodied mandibles on the first trailer for the film, which you can simply scroll down to see for yourself.
The first trailer for William (House on Haunted Hill, Feardotcom) Malone’s latest feature, Parasomnia found its way online via the folks over at Horror.com and it’s worth a look if you’re in the mood for something weird.
2007. What a year! Talk about ups and downs! While there were quite a few bright spots, we're all still healing from last February, or as we here at Dread Central lovingly refer to it -- The 28 Days of Suck™!
I really can’t wait for Doomsday. Neil Marshall’s track record to date has shown us a director who loves working in our genre and knows how to do it right and even though Doomsday isn't horror, it is post-apocalyptic and in my book, that’s close enough.
I have zero hope that the Prom Night remake is going to be worth even half of the mentions we’ve given it here on the site, but since we are slaves to the will of horror fans, it is my duty to keep you informed about what’s going on with it. Even if I don’t want to.
Dark Sky Films has been known for releasing some very strange titles since their inception (Werewolves on Wheels, anyone?), and they have every intention of continuing that tradition with two new additions they just announced for release this January 29th.
It’s not a huge chunk of news, but could be pretty exciting for Hitman helmer Xavier Gens (interview) when it comes to getting attention for his next film, Vanikoro.
Wow, yesterday I discovered that Corey Feldman has his own site; today I learn he’s got a personal blog to go with it. So really, despite him being a grown-up hearththrob to many girls of my generation, he’s just a geek like the rest of us. Just with more money.
YouTube has really outdone itself this time, or at least it’s users have; yesterday we showed you a paltry one TV spot for Cloverfield; today we have seven. Seven, I tells ya! Madness! Cloverfield opens everywhere January 18th, dig the spots below!
Having never seen Cold Prey I am not really sure what to expect from slasher pics made in Norway. According to Twitch the coutnry is about to release its second ever subgenre pic called Rovdyr, but this time it will have a rating of 18+. The film by Patrik Syversen does appear to have a fairly standard slasher plot, but check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Everything has been pretty quiet in regards to a horror film titled Death Walks the Streets. I can't even remember the last story I personally wrote concerning it, but it must have been some time ago ("Exclusive: Death Walks the Streets Concept Art" - July 2006). But something is stirring on the road ahead.
Actor/Director Michele Soavi has spent many years away from the horror genre. Since his last horror pic, Cemetery Man (review), Soavi has been directing various Italian TV shows ... but that is about to change.
Guillermo Del Toro is a name we should all be familiar with by now. Throughout 2007 the Hellboy helmer's name seemed to crop up in more news stories than any other director, so why shouldn't he in '08?
In case you missed it, a brand-new ad for Cloverfield found its way onto YouTube over the last few days. Nothing terribly new is revealed in it, but there’s some good monster mayhem and a great choice of where to die! Cloverfield opens everywhere January 18th, 2008! Can’t freaking wait!
