Only a few weeks left until death and debauchery descend upon Dallas, TX; I refer of course to the 2nd annual Fear Fest, going down March 7th-9th, 2008!
Well, it’s been a stupid long time coming, but we’ve finally added the option for you guys to write your own reviews to the movies you see reviewed here on Dread Central!
It’s been a while since much has been said about the upcoming werewolf flick Howl, but that doesn’t mean we’ve not been keeping our ears perked to hear more about it.
The sickos over at IGN got their paws on the first trailer for Otis, the new horror movie that will be the first in a new wave from Warner Bros.’ Raw Feed banner. The story is about a teenager who escapes the grips of the titular serial killer and her parents, eager to get revenge, decide to take justice in their own hands.
The trades are reporting this morning that Paul (The Da Vinci Code) Bettany has signed on to star in the Screen Gems thriller Legion, the feature directing debut of visual effects house Orphanage co-founder Scott Stewart, who also penned the script with Peter Schink.
In case any of you are looking at our lineup for Fear Fest 2 and wondering why in the hell Wes Craven isn’t a part of it, here’s your answer; he’s got a brand new movie that’s finally moving forward now that the Writer’s Strike is 100% officially over.
There's nothing, and I mean nothing that makes me happier than reporting on a new George A. Romero Dead film. Rather than me expound upon all the gory joys that such a momentous occasion brings, click the video below and listen to the Godfather of our genre speak!
I truly thought the only way for television to cause anyone to go into a paranoid schizophrenic craze would be 24 straight hours of Fox News, but I may just be wrong. The Signal (review) proved that you don't need Ann Coulter to get a case of the crazies. Instead of you listening to me rant on and on, check out the newest Signal clip titled "Laura".
Whenever CBS airs a genre themed episode of "CSI," we like to let you guys know (“CSI Goes to Hell” – January 2008). This week just happens to contain such an episode...
I've been collecting figures from Sideshow Collectibles for a number of years now. With all honesty I can say that their best line isn't based on any film, but a whole horror sub-genre: zombies.
The last time we looked at SOTA Toys' upcoming 14" tall resin Cthulhu statue, we knew it was coming in green and some varients were to follow (“SOTA Unleashes a Big Old One” – February 2008). Well, today we got in the pics of what the Old One would look like in a couple different shades.
I know during your multiple re-watchings of Hostel and Cabin Fever, you’ve probably asked yourself over and over “Self, what inspires Eli Roth?” Head out to the New Beverly Cinema in LA starting this Sunday and you can find out!
Just the other day we told you about Paddy (Shrooms) Breathnach’s next film, Red Mist, which is currently lensing in Belfast (“Shrooms Follow-up Gets Four” – February 2008), but at the time we knew zilch about it.
For all you horror freaks who feel there’s nothing to gain by getting out there and trying to make a movie on your own, your time has come! Massify and After Dark Films want to make it for you! A new competition launched this week from the two companies to snatch up an idea from anyone on the web and make it into a horror film. Sound crazy? It probably will be, but who knows; maybe something truly genius will come of it.
2009 still seems like a long way away, but the rewards that year will bring to the horror genre make it seem worth the wait. With '08 flooded by teen slashers and pointless remakes, it is comforting to know some filmmakers and studios are still willing to take a chance on projects like Splice.
