With San Diego Comic Con only a week away (July 23-27th), we are getting pelted with information on the show from all sides. It’s now become impossible to buy even half of the exclusives on sale there, as you’d have to be rich AND some are so limited, you’d need a small army just to stand in line for you.
Could it be? A trailer for a video game that was so extreme, it was actually banned? That’s what EA Games is telling us about the “Lullaby Trailer” for the upcoming survival horror game Dead Space.
I always said they’d need a very hot group of women if they were going to remake Kevin Tenney’s Night of the Demons, and it looks like director Adam Gierasch agrees with me!
With Dylan Dog finally headed to the big screen under the U.S. title Dead of Night, one has to wonder if it will pave the way for other iconic comic book characters who fight monsters. I’m thinking a Cal McDonald movie would be very nice…
As we had hoped, during yesterday’s Microsoft E3 press conference a number of titles interesting to us horror fans were rolled out and put center stage. We already talked about Resident Evil 5 yesterday, but also demonstrated on stage were Gears of War 2 and Fallout 3.
We received a heads up today that Zombie Honeymoon (review) star and all around cutie Tracy Coogan is preparing to take on another starring role in Mike Escobedo’s Dark Woods.
With E3 going down right now, I can imagine we’re going to be seeing more announcements like this in the coming days. Variety caught wind this morning that Capcom and Warner Bros. are teaming up to bring Lost Planet to the big screen, with Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter on board to pen the script.
For those of us stuck in the States and missing out on the world premiere of Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) at Fantasia this week, there's a lot of time to kill between now and its November 7th release date.
We first brought the new film from Cameron Romero (interview), Staunton Hill, to your attention a few weeks back. Since then we've been in close contact with Romero and the film's producers to get you even more info, and our perseverance has paid off in spades today; We’ve got the exclusive first look at the Staunton Hill trailer for you, only on Dread Central!
Showtime Networks and The Weinstein Company just announced a 7-year exclusive deal that will see some pretty interesting shows and movies being made. None more interesting, we think, than Scream 4.
First things first: March 13th, 2009. Yes, that’s a Friday so you’ll want to plan not to spend that evening watching counselors at Camp Crystal Lake being slaughtered. Instead you’ll want to keep that evening, nay the whole weekend, free for the follow-up to the best reviewed horror game to date.
It’s E3 week, which means tons of gaming news. I’ll be back later today and tomorrow with any horror centric news from the big three’s press conferences. Microsoft is up first today with its press conference, and then tomorrow Nintendo and Sony unveil their future plans.
We love James Wan around these parts. Not only has he made a few kickass horror films, but he’s also a great guy. EA Games seem to be on a mission to show us horror fans that despite having rarely entered our genre, this October’s Dead Space comes from a team of people that really know their stuff when it comes to horror.
Jack Ketchum. A man whose name has been synonymous with horror for as long as I can remember. A man whose works, when I was growing, were spoken of with reverence by those who knew everything there was to know about horror writing, works so terrifyingly real that they were too much for even the most hardcore of readers.
Douglas Buck, director of Family Portraits: A Trilogy of America and the Sisters remake, is less than confident in mankind’s ongoing destructive relationship with mother earth. His in-the-works opus The Broken Imago has the earmarks of a terrifying new entry in a subgenre of increasing relevance, the Eco-Horror film.
