OK, I think we can all safely say that Rob Zombie's upcoming film Tyrannosaurus Rex is not the code name for The Nail movie, but it looks like the title may not be the final one at all. STYD has heard from those on the inside that Tyrannosaurus Rex may just be a temp title. Alright, whatever ... but what is the damn thing about?
In just over a week, the big screen adaptation of Scott B. Smith's The Ruins will hit theatres nationwide. What better way to get everyone in the mood than to spread some kick ass viral marketing?
For those of us who missed the theatrical run of Teeth (review) early this year, we can rest easy that Dimension Extreme will be putting it out on DVD by May 1st.
Yet another voice has joined the cast of The Haunted World of El Superbeasto, and man am I getting Halloween flashbacks in a big way…
Today we got a cool treat for ya; Genius Entertainment sent us over an exclusive clip from Terra Shin’s Black House, which they’re releasing on DVD this April 22nd.
The issue of Japan's oldest gaming magazine Famitsu that has just hit stands comes with a bonus DVD with a few short interviews about Resident Evil 5. No translation yet for what the Capcom developers are saying, but that's no reason not to share the video with you, as it contains a few glimpses of someone actually playing the game, a few close up looks at the main character and a few other models from the game.
While it’s good to have some news that Platinum Dunes are finally looking at working on some original stuff as opposed to remake after remake, it’s too bad the premise of The Butcherhouse Chronicles doesn’t sound like anything that original...
While I’m not exactly looking forward to The Descent 2 (I refuse to use their weird lettering) without Neil Marshall on board, when he discussed the sequel at Fear Fest he seemed pretty confident that editor-turned-director Jon Harris would do a good job with it. So where does that leave us for The Descent 3?
Even though Steve Miner’s remake of Day of the Dead (review) is getting the direct-to-DVD treatment come April 8th, IMP Awards happened upon two new posters for it. The first gives it that Dawn of the Dead remake feel, while the second is reminiscent of both Shaun and Diary of the Dead.
And the Saw casting news keeps rolling in. Who's the next person set to play in one of Jigsaw's game? Variety reports today that Dexter and Rambo star Julie Benz has just signed on for some blood splattered shenanigans!
Shudder-free shitter fodder! Discuss Motion Picture Purgatory in the Dread Central forums!
We're still not sure if the monster rampage flick known as Cloverfield (review) will be making a debut on Blu-ray this April 22nd, but we just found out that there will be something else emerging with the regular DVD.
Ah, viral marketing, the bane of Internet journalists’ existences. Some of this stuff is so damn obscure; it’s hard to follow the connection to the actual film it’s supposed to relate to (see anything regarding Cloverfield for examples).
Though one has to question the necessity of a My Bloody Valentine redux, especially one shot in 3D, I doubt anyone would argue that the casting of Jaime (Sin City) King is a good idea, if nothing else because she's so very easy on the eyes.
This morning The Hollywoood Reporter has a story that, continuing the recent trend set up by Richard Kelly’s adaptation of The Box for the big screen, Summit Entertainment has begun work on another “Twilight Zone” tale to be translated to film: Countdown.
