Some good news came down the DVD wire via Fangoria yesterday, so I thought it only fair that we share it with those of you who are so dedicated to Dread Central you can’t even think about hitting other horror sites...
Dominic Monaghan, who you all may know as Charlie from “Lost”, seems to have an affinity for our genre. First he starred alongside Ron Perlman in the Glass Eye Pix film I Sell the Dead (more on that soon), now he’s taken girls captive for his own sick pleasures in MGM’s Pet.
Looks like another horror flick is about to get the bump this year. Amusement, a story about three women with a connection who are being stalked, has been pushed back to September. This new comes down the pipes from Fangoria to name a few.
Last we heard, the Hellraiser remake totally vanished from the Weinstein's slate (“Hellraiser Redux Moves” – January 2008). Some of us this project was as doomed as anyone who ever opened the Lament Configuration.

As you may recall, All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (review) is set to open in UK theaters next Friday, February 15th. Lucky Brits, we’re not getting it unitl (supposedly) April over here. But it’s all right, because Optimum Releasing have just thrown us a new clip from the film that should hopefully help tide you over for now. Check it out below and be sure to visit the official Mandy Lane appreciation society on MySpace when you’re done!
You know giant monster movies are getting to be back in vogue when an obscure 40-year old monster comic is getting dusted off as the basis for a brand new creature feature. Don't feel bad if you've never before heard of Reptisaurus because the monster was the subject of a short-lived Silver Age comic published by the long defunct Charlton Comics back in the hay day of giant Japanese monster movies. The comic only ran for seven issues from 1962-1963. I'd say that's pretty darn obscure.
A few days back, when we did our latest Fear Fest update and mentioned that E.T. star Henry Thomas would be joining us in Texas this March 7th-9th, were you a bit perplexed? Sure, Thomas has done some good genre work in things like Dead Birds, but why’s he hitting cons now?
Wow, now that is a badass poster ladies and gents! Make sure you use your little arrow pointy thing (some call it a “cursor”) to click on the teaser image you see below for the new Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer poster. This is how a poster for a movie called Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer should look, damnit!
In California and got nothing going on this Friday? Don't sit home playing Halo 3, head out to L.A. and check out Adam Green's latest psychodrama, Spiral (review here), on the big screen followed by an audience Q and A.
It's been quite some time since we've raved about the goodness that was Frank Sudol's City of Rott (review here), and if you haven't see it yet, brother, you'd best get to ordering! Frank dropped us a line today to let us know about something new!
Remember when the horror flick flick called Dead Air was supposed to come out during the winter of 2007? Yeah, that didn't seem to happen. It just sort of vanished. This really pissed me off since the idea of watching two DJs trying to get the word out about a terrorist-born zombie contagion sounds pretty cool.
A few months back, you might recall we gave you the first word on a new horror flick that seemed to come from nowhere called Midnight Movie (“First Look at Midnight Movie!” – September 2007). Since then all has been pretty quite for the flick, but today we got a progress report from director Jack Messitt.
Those crazy bastards over at Icons of Fright just got the first look at the trailer for Steve Mena’s Malevolence: Bereavement, the prequel to his 2005 debut, Malevolence. The film is the story of the breaking of Martin Bristol, the killer we witnessed messing things up in the first movie, as he’s trained to be a remorseless madman by serial killer Graham Sutter. No word on a release date yet but we’ll keep you posted.
Remakes. We hate them, we love them, we just cannot seem to get away from them. Hell, some of our most cherished horror films are remakes: The Thing, The Fly, When a Stranger Calls ... all right, maybe not that last one.
