How ironic that the first I hear about a new Barbie doll based on Tippi Hedren's character in the classic The Birds comes from gossip site Defamer of all places.
It’s a slim bit of news, but noteworthy all the same; Viz Media has announced a September 16th, 2008 DVD release date for Death Note (review). Viz was behind the film’s limited theatrical run we told you about a while back as well, which put a dubbed (gack) version of the film out to the masses for a weekend.
Strangely enough, I could see Josh Brolin doing well as Snake Plissken. I mean, in a world where we just have to accept that yes, they are remaking Escape From New York, Brolin’s certainly not the worst choice to don the eyepatch.
Seeing that Hollywood has jumped on the fantasy bandwagon (after Peter Jackson made it ultra profitable), it does not surprise me that Troll is up on the remake block. Looking back on the original, it wasn't all that bad ... in comparison to the sequel.
The star of Wes Craven's latest horror jaunt, Max Thieriot, spoke recently with STYD, where he cleared up what first appeared to be a very muddled plot of the upcoming 25/8.
For older horror fans who remember sneaking behind the "special curtain" at the local video joint to see Death staring back at us, it is a special memory. Oh, the number of times I got beaten for sneaking Faces of Death home.
We've been all over HBO's "True Blood" - the new vampire series from "Six Feet Under" creator Alan Ball - ever since it was first announced.
The glorious bastards over at STYD got the first look at the poster for Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors, a teasing chunk of you can see on your right. Click it to be whisked away to STYD-land for a look at the entire thing.
James Zahn, the mastermind behind the forever-in-development monster mashup Death Walks the Streets, just dropped us a line with your first look at issue #0 of the
Just got a heads up from a reader that YouTube's hosting a very cool behind-the-scenes news report from the set of The Descent 2, which will be wrapping up its shoot sometime this week. Its focus is on the studio they were using for the sequel, but there’s a lot of great footage of Crawlers and a very dirty Shauna MacDonald. Check it out below, and keep your eyeballs peeled for our Descent 2 set report very soon!
Recently Uncle Creepy got to sit down for an extended chat with Michael Felsher, the man behind Red Shirt Pictures. If neither name is familiar to you, pop in your 20th Anniversary DVD of Hellraiser or your Monster Squad disc; pretty much all the kickass features on those DVDs were done by Mike and Red Shirt.
It seems like it’s been a long time since we had a good creature feature, no? I really can’t remember the last one, but then I’ve only had one cup of coffee so far ... Twitch Film got word of a new monster movie coming from New Zealand that definitely sounds like it’s worth keeping one eye on.
It’s that time of year again; if you’ve been sitting on your genre film waiting to find the best film festival to submit it to, it’s time to get your ass in gear! Toronto After Dark’s call for entries closes tomorrow, Friday, June 20th!
The official site for one of our favorite conventions on the East Coast, Rock and Shock (we can’t have just one favorite, sorry), just updated with the first confirmed guests for the 2008 show, which goes down October 10th-12th in Worcester, MA.
I'll admit that I've yet to see Alex Orr's Blood Car (review). However, seeing as how gas prices may soon drive some to murder, now would be a good time to watch it.
