Man, when the folks behind Aja's remake of Piranha put out a casting call for beautiful people, they really weren't kidding! A hot little press release just showed up in our inbox announcing that porn star Riley Steele has nabbed herself a lead role in the upcoming redux of the 1978 cult classic!
First off, everyone who really loves horror needs to own an all-region DVD player (you can get a decent one for around $100 on Amazon!). That way, when foreign films like Jaume Balagueró and Paco Plaza’s terrifying [REC] come out (and the American remake has ALREADY opened), you can be smug about having already seen the better version (in my opinion) first.
The much talked about Ron Perlman and Thomas Jane sci-fi/horror vehicle The Mutant Chronicles (review here) is finally making its way to home video, and we have the skinny for you M-lovers out there!
One film we've been keeping tabs on with regard to distribution -- Will it go theatrical? Will it be TV & DVD only? -- is Clive Barker's Book of Blood. Today we learned that Lightning Media has acquired US rights to the film and plans to release it theatrically in late 2009/early 2010.
The After Dark Horrorfest has become a genre staple of sorts by releasing eight films to die for every year. True, they're not all winners but over the years some real gems have emerged from the mediocre, and there will be more to come.
With his latest film, Final Destination: Death Trip 3D, set to make its theatrical debut going head up with Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 on August 28th, director David R. Ellis is still finding the time to usher along his newest project, Humpty Dumpty 3D. Lord knows how!
What's this we hear? Ridley Scott and Anthony Hopkins are re-teaming to bring Hannibal Lecter back to the big screen for the fourth time? And what's this? Cate Blanchett will be playing the new Clarice Starling?
With the DVD and Blu-ray release of My Bloody Valentine 3D (review here) upon us, it was time to sit down and talk with director Patrick Lussier. He had lots of interesting things to say, including where the sequel would have been headed. Curious? You know you are!
I wasn't quite as big a fan of Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (reviews here) as some of the folks in the Dread Central offices, but I'm still pretty stoked to hear that a sequel is possibly in the works.
Toledo, OH - Do houses have memories? Why is it that in some places, people can feel an electric energy, can feel the house live around them, while in others, there seems to be nothing but walls and a roof? Truly, some houses are unassuming but have witnessed extraordinary events. Others, though grand in scale, lack the love and passion to give the house a personality, a life, of its own.
If you're going to make a slasher movie about the psychopathic proprietor of an adult ice cream shop then why not title the film Hot Blood Sundae? That way, even if the film proves awful, at least it has a memorable title.
We'll be the first to admit it ... we're kind of looking forward to the remake of the Eighties slasher The House of Sorority Row, now known simply as Sorority Row. Everything we've seen thus far has been pretty cool including this new teaser poster courtesy of Summit Entertainment.
Time for another installment of Doug Slack's horror anthology serial Hard-Boiled Horror Tales! Dread Central is proud to present "The Hit Got Hairy" Part IX.
Terror is set to strike in Minnesota come June. Horrifying! Astounding! Shocking! Scary adjectives! The horror anthology Terror Overload centers around a series of short stories all told by a creepy truck driver to a hot stranded hitchhiker, right before he does something, well, presumably really bad to her.
Last year the great Johnny Butane had the joy of reviewing a horror short anthology aptly titled Horrorshow (read the review). The anthology's co-creator Giles Edwards recently dropped us a line to let us know that two of the films within the series are now goring up Youtube and are available for your immediate pleasures. Embedded below is the short giallo film "The Incursion" as well as the wild polizia "Neon Killer". Enjoy!
