Hanging out at Rock and Shock this weekend, I got to meet some great people, both celebrity and otherwise, who I had been hoping to hook up with for years. One of the celebrities I’ve been waiting to chat with for a long time is Greg Nicotero, the “N” of KNB Effects.
Spooky Empire's Screamfest is ready to roll in just four short days! The show is being held right in Orlando, Florida just a few blocks away from Universal Studios. Head on out and make a grand weekend out of it! Hit the show during the day and Halloween Horror Nights after hours!
Those of you who are concerned with more new blood being injected into the Saw franchise can breath easily; though production designer David Hackl is now on board as director for Saw V, director Darren Bousman told STYD recently that he’ll likely be shooting the remake of Scanners at the same time as Saw V rolls, so he’ll be keeping a close eye on the proceedings.
*UPDATE: Apparently, the poster IMP Awards has is not the official After Dark poster, the first one you see below is. Thanks to After Dark for the correction!*
During this past weekend’s Rock and Shock convention here in Massachusetts, the long-delayed God of Vampires (review) finally got a chance to play in front of fans who have been waiting for the movie to be done for 5 years now.
The big winners from this year’s Sitges Film Festival have just been announced, and once again our beloved genre ruled the day. Rec, the Paco Plaza/Jaume Belaguero team up from Spain, won for Best Director, Best Actress, and the audience choice for Best Motion Picture!
Remember Evil Live, the vampire film Park Chan-wook said he’d be directing after I’m a Cyborg but That’s Okay? It’s been a while since we’ve had an update, so luckily the boys at Aullidos got a chance to pick the director’s brain during the Sitges festival.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul. No wonder the remake of The Eye looks so hollow ("Lussier Fixes The Eye" - September 2007). Then again, seeing as how the original Hong Kong version was as loud and obnoxious as every other Hollywood ghost flick, its amazing this took so long to happen.
I never really noticed how many movies shared the same title as Jack Ketchum's The Girl Next Door (review). Just a quick search on Amazon brought up several results, but not a single one was for the DVD we wanted.
It’s not much, but we do love bits and pieces on the new Hellraiser movie, especially since the directors behind festival hit Inside are on board to make it.
Hammer Films is back, and we finally have the visual proof! We just got a trio of pics from Beyond the Rave, the first film to come out of the British studio in decades. A little sex, a little blood, it’s all good. The film will debut online as a serial series sometime in the near future; keep it here for more info on Beyond the Rave as it comes down the pipe!
At this point the question is not “do we need another edition of Evil Dead?” but rather, “why did it take Anchor Bay so long to put out another one?”
Richard Kelly’s long-gestating horror film, The Box, based on the Richard Matheson story "Button, Button", is getting some damn classy casting now that things are moving along on the production.
Holy shit, remember this movie? I had almost forgotten about it myself, but thanks to an eagle-eyed reader named Joey, that won’t happen again. Box Office Mojo has a new list of release date changes and suddenly, out of nowhere, the Jessica Alba/Hayden Christensen vehicle Awake is part of it; the film is set to be released November 30th, 2007. Shit that’s soon!
P2, while not the traditional holiday movie, is sure to help put horror fans in the Christmas spirit when it’s released on November 9th. The story, as I’m sure you’ve heard before, is about a girl who is trapped in the parking garage of her company’s building on Christmas Eve, pursued by a disillusioned security guard who just doesn’t want to spend one more Christmas alone.
