Universal has finally set a date for the DVD release of Neil Marshall’s Doomsday (review), a movie that, at best, divided fans as to its validity since it was really one big homage. But damnit, it was done the right way if you ask me!
Toothy grizzlies are headed your way this Tuesday, May 6th, 2008. To best be prepared, make sure you fortify yourself with new horror DVD releases...
I didn’t even know the German film Antibodies (DVD review) was on the remake block, or if I did the knowledge was pushed out of my brain, likely being filled in by all the other remake news we do on a weekly basis.
Horror. That’s what it’s all about. So why the hell would the people behind the upcoming anthology series Fear Itself decide that the guy who remade The Fog deserves another shot at scaring us? In my opinion he should be relegated to romantic comedies and movies about kids dancing their way up from the slums for the rest of his career.
Proving that Beyond the Rave wasn’t just some one-off restart for Hammer Studios, the UK-based production house has officially announced acquisition of the remake rights for Let the Right One In, which just took top honors at the Tribeca Film Festival, according to this morning’s Variety.
I'm not sure why, but issues 10 & 11 of Horror Hound arrived within two days of each other ... Hence why we’re reviewing both at the same time.
I have to admit, as well-read as I am, I had no idea that there was an entire sauna culture in Finland. Apparently it is a no-zone between Christianity and Paganism, where sins can be easily washed away.
What would Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust) be making if he were still making movies? Cannibals, of course. Thankfully, this is actually Deodato’s new movie and not someone trying to be him. Whether or not it will work is a different story, but I can’t deny I’m curious. B-D got the first look at the teaser art for Cannibals, the entirety of which you can see by clicking the teaser image below. We’ll give you more soon!
Though I guess it’s good to know things are moving along for the Creature From the Black Lagoon remake, which has been in various stages of pre-production for three years now, I can’t help but keep thinking about the Creature script I reviewed a while back and doing nothing but dreading it.
A good amount of horror fans out there have probably already guessed correctly about what M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening (official site) will be really about, but for the rest of the folks it is still a mystery.
Sony Home Entertainment has set a DVD date for Jeff (Midnight Meat Train) Buhler’s feature directing debut, Insanitarium: July 15th, 2008!
We received word this week from the producers of The Dark Lurking that principal photography has finally finished up on the movie and they’re on to the long, painstaking process of slicing it together.
It’s not a lot more information, but I have to admit I’m fascinated by the idea of a sequel for The Descent, especially when there’s absolutely no need to have one.
It only figures that the Insane Clown Posse would find themselves in an asylum sooner or later. They are insane, aren't they? But this asylum is The Asylum, those masters of the motion picture mockbuster like Alien vs. Hunter and Snakes on a Train. Just this week they released Allan Quatermain and the Temple of Skulls; bet you can't guess what that's a mockbuster of.
Another Tribeca has come and gone, and with it another great selection of horror movies (hit the “Tribeca 2008” link to read about ‘em). I expected at least one or two would take home some awards, but to learn that a horror movie got Tribeca’s feature prize in the festival? That’s just awesome.
