I'm going to assume you've heard of this movie called Cloverfield, right? Giant monster, New York City, handheld footage: pretty much the Blair Zilla Project. I hear there's a lot of hype surrounding it. Something about a viral marketing campaign too. Lots of anticipation. Comes out on 1-18-08.
Check out your list of DVDs both good and bad come Tuesday, December 2nd, 2007...
The other night I got on the horn with Broken (DVD review) director Adam Mason for our first “formal” interview (which you can hear right here).
Last week we showed you a new poster from and gave you the first details on Howl, a new werewolf horror/comedy being produced by Moviehole owner Clint Morris ("Exclusive Update on Werewolf Movie Howl!" - November 2007).
So most recently we told you about the books we’d soon be stocking from Leisure in Evilshop, but what about those of you who want something a bit more ... interactive? Rejoice!
All right, so putting Rob Zombie’s Halloween behind us is what most horror fans really want to do, right? Right. Devil’s Due Publishing has decided to help with Halloween: Nightdance, a brand-new story taken from Carpenter’s original world. In Halloween: Nightdance, a young girl named Lisa discovers that a horrible secret from her past, more than likely Michael Myers, has resurfaced and is leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.
This moring, Daily Variety reports that Trancas International Films, the production house behind almost all the Halloween films including the recent remake, have chosen newbie director Adam Finberg to helm Hurt, from a script by Anthony Grieco (no relation to Richard) and Jeff Drongowski, marking the duo's first script sale.
The German-French Film Funding Commission has granted a nice chunk of change to Irreversible director Gaspar Noe for his long-awaited feature Enter the Void; $700K according to Variety.
It’s been a very long time since we’ve heard anything about the low-budget horror/sci-fi flick The Men Who Fell, which had made us all stand up and take notice when it was being made for how simply badass it looked considering it’s lack of funds.
I guess if something works good for you once, as it did with Joe Lynch and Wrong Turn 2, there’s nothing wrong with thinking it might work again. So how’s about a Wrong Turn 3, Joe?
While news may have slowed down with the holidays rolling in, that doesn't mean there aren't cool things going on in the horror genre, take Season of the Witch for instance. The book, penned by Natasha Mostert, has a interesting synopsis:
Way back in May I ran a story about a horror film starring Jennifer Tilly and Judd Nelson ("Take Care Of Tilly – May 2007"). Since then there hasn't been a peep.
Following up on the news about Howl we shared with you yesterday (“Exclusive Update on Werewolf Movie Howl!” – November 2007), producer Clint Morris just threw us a batch of stills from another horror movie he’s behind, the supernatural western Between the Sand and the Sky.
Those of you in L.A. already know how cool the New Beverly Cinema is thanks to their ongoing series of badass double bills. But come December their badassness will be kicking up a notch thanks to some help from across the pond.
