Ju-on Game Update! More Movies Coming?

Wow, that was quick. Apparently someone out there does read Japanese. Kevin over at Nippon Cinema contacted us in the wee hours last night (not the Wii hours … oh I slay me) with news of his post explaining the details on the teaser site juongame that we English-only types didn’t pick up on.

Samurai Princess: You Had Us at Breast Grenades

The trailer for the latest gore-fest out of Japan hit online today. That's right, kids, Samurai Princess is on the way, and this chick is packin' some serious heat -- Rocket Feet! Scissor Legs! And yes, Breast Grenades! Aw yeah, mama!

I, Frankenstein Coming to the Big Screen

Death Ray Films, director Patrick Tatopoulos, and Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux have teamed up to develop I, Frankenstein for the big screen.

Ju-on Creator Makes A Grudge Game?

I'd read recently that Ju-on creator Takashi Shimizu was getting involved with game development, but the actual project wasn't clear. Now it appears to be a game set in The Grudge universe.

Exclusive Promo Clip: One Eyed Monster

If there's one thing we know for sure it's that whenever Ron Jeremy is around, a one-eyed monster cannot be far behind. Case in point: Adam Field's new film One Eyed Monster. We got our hands on an exclusive little promotional clip for ya, and it's quite the eyeful!

Wanna Get Laid ... To Rest?

In case you couldn't tell, we're pretty excited about Robert Hall's Laid to Rest. With the DVD hitting stores on April 21st, it's time to give you guys the skinny in the form of two reviews!

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.”
