Whenever a new sci-fi or comic book flick is announced, YouTube becomes flooded with "real" trailers that turn out to be nothing more than fan-creations. Some are good ... and some are just plain bad.

There are Living Dead Within the Woods!

The crew of the UK indie zombie flick Within the Woods drew our attention to their project today with a trailer and some "making of" videos. Can our pals from across the pond succeed where so many American indie filmmakers have failed?

New Pics From Saw V Set!

Saw V ... who knew we'd actually see so many sequels to a small and twisted horror film that surfaced back in 2004? In the sequels that followed, we've seen a real split between horror fans who like and dislike the franchise. Will the fourth sequel bring them together in happy harmony?

Red Trailer

For a while now you’ve been reading about Red here on Dread Central, and finally as its release date approaches, we’re getting more and more to talk about. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our Red review from Fantasia, which will hopefully make you look forward to it even more.

Fantasia 2008: Days 11-13

Apologies for the lack of updates the past couple of days. I blame the exhaustingly stylized, rockabilly zombie movie Flick, which engendered so much cinematic bile, I feared the excess would leak into the other films I had planned to discuss.

Cohen to Produce Monster Squad Remake

I guess it’s not really a helluva lot of information, but it could be enough to ruin your morning if you’re not careful. Rob Cohen caught up with the B-D boys recently to chat about his latest film, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and dropped some potentially disturbing news about the 1987 classic The Monster Squad.

Tomaselli Casting for Torture Chamber

The director of Horror and Satan’s Playground is on his way back with a brand new horror film called Torture Chamber. Moviehole found a casting announcement for it in Backstage Magazine and was kind enough to throw up the film’s synopsis. Dig:

Gods, Ghosts and the Dead at E3!

Well Sony and Nintendo didn?t really have much for us horror fans at their conferences, which is a shame since both have high profile horror titles heading to their systems, but that doesn?t mean that we don?t still have a stack of stuff to update you on.

Outlander's Second Trailer Crashes to Earth

Outlander is probably the most unexpected release of 2008. The concept of an evil alien being battled by Vikings and another (good) alien may sound pretty strange, but somehow it looks like Howard McCain is making it work.

Bay Gives F13 & Ouija Update

Evil Toys at SDCC!

With San Diego Comic Con only a week away (July 23-27th), we are getting pelted with information on the show from all sides. It’s now become impossible to buy even half of the exclusives on sale there, as you’d have to be rich AND some are so limited, you’d need a small army just to stand in line for you.

Banned Dead Space Trailer!

Could it be? A trailer for a video game that was so extreme, it was actually banned? That’s what EA Games is telling us about the “Lullaby Trailer” for the upcoming survival horror game Dead Space.
