Over the weekend the boys at Fangoria got the first look at the art for two of the weirdest J-horror films I’ve seen in a long time: Suicide Club helmer Sion Sono’s latest, Exte: Hair Extensions (review), and Higuchinsky’s Long Dream.
A familiar face to all Battlestar Galatica fans out there has just joined up with J. Larose to be part of Kiven Head's zombie action film, The Undertakers: Road's End. Richard Hatch (Capt. Apollo!) will be playing the role of Professor James.
We recently learned that Michael Pare, who's going to be scaring things up in 100 Feet, has joined the cast of Chris White's David to play a the father named Eric Fuller.
Our buddy Hunter directed us to Movie-List, which is currently hosting the red-band trailer for Stuck.
We've seen the Japanese trailer for Siren: Blood Curse (or Siren: New Translation as it's known there), but now we have the trailer focusing on the perspective of the American characters wrapped up in events, rather than the Japanese ones.
Issue #78 May 2008 The focus in this month’s Rue Morgue is something we’ve been trying to do a Dinner for Fiends about for the last month or so; the new wave of French horror. Sadly, there’s not a helluva lot to talk about since there are only a handful of movies that are making up this new trend, but it’s nice to see them put it in the forefront for the fans.
There's been a lot of skepticism towards Silent Hill V (now being called Silent Hill: Homecoming officially), and I have no shame in admitting that some of it came from me. A lot of the screenshots and material slowly seeping out from the developers over at Double Helix (formerly called The Collective) had given grounds for those people naturally skeptical anyway, given that the game was not being made by Team Silent, to feel their fears were founded.
Steven Seagal has been kind of notorious for wanting to avoid appearing in any kind of sci-fi or horror-themed movies. It almost happened a few years back with the Anthony Hickox flick Submerged, but the whole "mutant" aspect got nixed in favor of generic terrorists shortly before shooting began. Not sure why he's so opposed to such a thing. His own daughter starred in three Gamera movies; what makes him think he's so above the fray?
Are you ready for blood? Are you ready for Nazis? Are you ready for ass-tons of nudity and vicious mayhem that hasn't been seen since Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS? Then get ready for Keith Crocker's Blitzkrieg: Escape from Stalag 69.
Our man “Hunter” just gave us another heads up, this time pointing us to Wired Magazine’s blog, which landed itself the first cast pic from Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”.
REC (review) directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza have been asked to once again show the world horrific events through the eyes of a hand-held camera.
We got word today that a new book titled Vampyres of Hollywood is going to be hitting shelves on July 8th. While we don't normally report on books as news stories, this one is an exception since it was written the beautiful and talented Adrienne Barbeau along with fellow author Michael Scott.
Seems that Ghost House Underground is serious about its horror, if the company's initial lineup (which includes the monster horror movie Dark Floors, among others) is any indication, and today they’ve announced two more titles for direct-to-DVD release.
Is it a good idea to hand over the Mummy franchise to a director known mainly for his movies about fast cars? We shall find out when The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor hits on August 1st, 2008. But now we can have a taste…
