Rest in Peace: Robert Quarry (1925-2009)

It's never easy to say goodbye, and I am sad to report that's exactly what we must do as we've lost another of our own. Robert Quarry has passed on.

First Pics From REC 2!

It’s hard to tell what’s going on, but there’s definitely some chaos going down in the first images from REC 2 that showed up this morning over on Aullidos. On your right you can see a small sampling of one of them; click on it to check out the whole thing.

The Buz is Back!

Now this has been a long time coming! You may remember a semi-regular column of bizarreness called The Buz: Horror vs. Teh Interwebz, which took "normal" movies and re-imagined them with internet speak. The man behind the series, Buz "Danger" Wallick, spent the better part of last year in a Turkish prison thanks to his last entry, but we're happy to announce that he's free and ready to corrupt your favorite films all over again!

Exclusive Haunting of Molly Hartley Clip!

The DVD for The Haunting of Molly Hartley hits this Tuesday, and to get you in the mood we have an exclusive look at one of the disc’s behind-the-scenes featurettes, in which the casting of the titular haunted girl is discussed in some detail.

DVD Releases: An Odd Lot

The horror DVDs coming out on Tuesday, February 24th are strange. Some good re-issues, some odd new releases, and a helluva lot of indie and Italian stuff I’ve never heard of. But only one or two, sadly, that I would want for my birthday (which is this weekend, FYI)...

Grudge & Grudge 3 Releases Kicked Back

Man, Toby Wilkins just can’t catch a break when it comes to DVD releases for his films. First Splinter gets pushed up a few months with nary a word from the studio, and now The Grudge 3 has been relocated from March to May.

Zack Snyder Readies Sucker Punch

It may not be 100% horror, but since the possible next film for Watchmen director Zack Snyder is described as ”Alice in Wonderland with machine guns”, I can’t help but think horror fans will find something to dig about it.

Ghostbusters 3 Shooting This Fall?

It’s a small thing, but at this point we’ll take any updates we can get regarding Ghostbusters 3, which has gone from wild rumor to solid fact in the course of a few short months.

Eileen Dietz Cast in Halloween 2

Some interesting news came in earlier tonight from someone close to the production of Rob Zombie's Halloween 2. Despite the film rolling tomorrow, yet another cast member has signed on to increase the sequel's horror pedigree, this time it's The Exorcist's Eileen Dietz.

Unlucky Weekend for Friday the 13th

A steep drop-off in box office is not all that surprising after a film opens to huge numbers, but an 80% drop-off? That cuts worse than a machete to the head. Jason must have worn out his lower half doing all that running in his new film because he sure doesn't have any legs.

Full Trailer for S. Darko

The full trailer for S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale (as it’s now being called) showed up this weekend over at the film’s official site, but you can just check it out below if you like. This time there’s actual footage from the film, unlike in the "teaser trailer" we showed you a few days ago!

EA Announces Alice Game Sequel

Now here’s some news I didn’t expect to stumble upon any time soon: EA Games has announced that development has officialy begun on a sequel to American McGee’s Alice, the 2000 game that put players in the shoes of Alice, all grown up and fighting to defend an even more twisted version of Wonderland.

Third Twilight Sequel Gets Release Date

Insanity is the rule of the day over at Summit Entertainment, which has just announced that the third movie in the Twilight “saga” (which is an insult to the word “saga” if you ask me), Eclipse (book review), will be out in theaters on June 30th, 2010.

Tour the Tales of an Ancient Empire Gallery

A demon sorceress and her vampires ... heroes ... villains. Plus gore, blood, and naked damsels. A typical weekend in DC's offices? Maybe, but it's also what we were promised by Albert Pyun as filming of his Sword and the Sorcerer follow-up, Tales of an Ancient Empire, progressed. Last we heard of the production, they were "almost at the stretch run" and awaiting Christopher Lambert's arrival to shoot the finishing shots.

Zombie Themed Wine Hitting the Market

I'm not sure how many wine aficionados we have around Dread Central, but after reading about a new offering from Redheads Studio of McLaren Vale in Southern Australia called "Return of the Living Red," I just had to share the details.
