Breathe easy, horror fans ... we're finally going to get a reboot that we won't mind very much! Robert Rodriguez confirmed today that he will be taking the Predator franchise and giving it a good once-over!
If, like most of us here at Dread Central, you've been looking forward to The Crazies reboot, unfortunately we're all going to have to wait a little longer than original anticipated.
Don't want to wait for tomorrow? Through the power of bootlegging you can watch the trailer for Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 right now! Hurry up and dig it before it's gone!
One upcoming project that has definitely got our attention is the "illustrated film" adaptation of Godkiller, written and directed by Matt Pizzolo based on the comic book of the same name he created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker. As previously reported, genre faves Tiffany Shepis, Danielle Harris, Lance Henriksen, and Bill Moseley are all lending their voice talents to the project.
One of the best posters we've ever seen is for the indie film I Can See You, which is the debut feature from writer/director Graham Reznick under Larry Fessenden’s Scareflix banner. If you happen to be in the NYC area April 29th through May 5th, you'll be able to see first-hand if the project lives up to its artwork.
Here at Dread Central we're huge Brad Anderson fans. Ever since the stellar Session 9 we've always been eager to see what this guy can cook up, and it sounds like with his new flick we could be in for a real treat!
There's no doubt Sam Peckinpah's 1971 film Straw Dogs, which was based upon the book The Siege at Trencher's Farm by Gordon Williams, is widely regarded as an absolute classic. And like all classics, we knew that sooner or later someone would get the bug up his ass to remake it. So now it's out with the Hoffman and in with the Cyclops.
Those who did venture out to see the Tom Cruise Nazi epic Valkyrie (you know, the one in which nobody had a German accent) will most likely know the name Carice van Houten. If you don't, you and everyone else will be getting to know her quickly because she just signed on for Chris Smith's British horror film Black Death.
Just heard from our friends over at the Weinsteins with some really cool news regarding Alexandre Aja's remake of Piranha 3D ... genre fav Richard Dreyfuss is heading back into the water to deal with a whole new breed of toothy fish!
Viz Media has announced the first simultaneous East/West debut of a new manga series from legendary creator Rumiko Takahashi entitled Rin-Ne. The series launched just yesterday exclusively in Japan in Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine and online for North American audiences on TheRumicWorld.com.
Despite boasting a title perfectly suitable for a Ron Jeremy porno flick, Wicked Wood is actually a new indie horror flick about a couple that make the grave mistake of bringing home a mysterious wood carved figure called Splinter that comes to murderous life.
The final piece seems to have fallen into place for the upcoming Nightmare on Elm Street reboot: At last Freddy has his new Nancy, and she's definitely not a household name ... at least not yet.
To celebrate next week's DVD release of While She Was Out (review here), we've scored you guys an extended clip! Get ready to bear witness to some of the carnage caused by Kim Basinger and her Toolbox of Terror™!
Here at Dread Central we are big fans of both director Ti West and actor AJ Bowen. Well, actually in Bowen's case we're mainly fascinated with his beard, but anyway, to have them both working on one flick? That's what we call good stuff! We'd go to Tribeca for this film alone!
More goods out of the Tribeca Film Festival 2009. On the hot plate? Stills and a trailer for this year's slasher entry, Paintball.
