When Dinocroc and Supergator Collide

Now that Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus (review here) has become something of a minor web phenomenon, it should come as no surprise that more animalistic movie monsters are being booked to step into the cinematic squared circle and clash in a motion picture smackdown of b-movie proportions. Next up for a monstermania main event: Dinocroc vs. Supergator.

Werewolf: The Series DVD Cover Art!

Just a few days ago we told you about "Werewolf: The Series" finally hitting DVD. Now through the magic of Internet trickery and a really sexy source, we bring you the cover art, and holy shit is it badass!

Promo Trailers for V, Eastwick, Happy Town

ABC just announced its new programming for the fall schedule, as well as a few mid-season replacement series for early 2010. Three of these new shows may be of interest to genre fans: "Eastwick" (or as I have already dubbed it, "Desperate Housewitches"), Happy Town ("Northern Exposure" meets "Twin Peaks"), and the jumpsuit-less remake of "V". Have a look at the promo trailers for all three.

Dexter Season 3 Coming Home

Everyone’s favorite serial killer, Dexter Morgan, is making another trip to home video, hot on the heels of the recently released second season.

Layton Matthews Studies Death Perception

Viral marketing can play a formidable role in capturing the public’s attention, and some indie filmmakers are really giving it their all in an effort to get their film noticed amongst the dozens of low-budget genre titles that flood video stores (er, Netflix?) each month.

Terminator: Salvation Reviewed!

Wondering whether or not your money will be well spent this weekend on the fourth entry into the Terminator franchise? As always we're here to offer you an opinion, and lord knows we're pretty opinionated around here! Read on for our verdict!

Ole Bornedal to Helm Koontz's The Husband

Well, what do you know? As soon as we finish up one story about a book-to-film adaptation, along comes another. This one involves long-time genre fave Dean Kootz and his 2006 novel The Husband.

Paramount Adapting Techno Thriller Daemon

We walk a fine line at Dread Central as far as deciding what's horror, what's sci-fi, and what's enough of a hybrid to warrant our covering it. Considering the novel Daemon bills itself as "a harrowing journey through the dark crawl spaces of the modern world," we thought its film adaptation merits at least a mention.

Something Wicked Coming from Merchant Films

It seems to me that suspense is in danger of becoming something of a lost art in modern American horror. Sure there have been exceptions, but too many recent films fail to realize their true potential when it comes to lingering and unrelenting tension.

Thirst Joining List of Park Chan-Wook Remakes?

Hollywood just can't get enough of acclaimed Korean filmmaker Park Chan-wook's output. Three of his projects are in various stages of remake development, and it's starting to look like his vampire priest saga Thirst is going to join them.

Exclusive: Nathan Baesel Talks Behind the Mask Sequel

Don’t know about other folks, but I LOVED the 2006 horror spoof, Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (spoof isn’t the best word choice, but a movie like BTM really is unclassifiable).

More Black Devil Doll Screenings Added!

The ever so controversial new film Black Devil Doll (review) is beginning to make its rounds around the country! Next up -- Rhode Island, Ohio, Manhattan, Syracuse, Utah, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, London, and more!

Sexy and Sick Cadaver One-Sheet

With IFC Films nabbing the rights to so many good horror flicks out there, every once in a while one falls through the cracks and no one notices it. Such is the case with Cadaver, but after one look at the new poster, I'm fairly certain this will make it to your "You know, maybe I should check that out" list!

Night of the Creeps DVD Shenanigans

For a time I thought I had a better chance of seeing God than seeing a legitimate release of Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps on DVD. Now that the cult classic is getting ready to thrill horror fans with its digital debut this fall, we have our first look at some of the extra material that will be gracing the upcoming release.

IFC Takes On Antichrist

Well, no one can accuse IFC Films of being unwilling to promote controversial properties. This morning the company announced it is picking up Lars von Trier's Antichrist, which has without a doubt been the most talked about movie at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
