Here at Dread Central we truly are looking forward to Halloween: Nightdance, the upcoming new comic from Devil’s Due Publishing written by Stefan Hutchinson and Tim Seeley. The publishers are pretty happy with it, it seems, going so far as to create a gimmicky cover!
The world's first online only horror filmfest, Insomnifest, officially kicks off next month and only six more of twelve titles remain to be revealed. This week alone has seen the unveiling of four of the fest's films thanks to the press release we got in today (“Two More for Insomnifest” – January 2008).
Well, this is surely a good sign that someone at New Line is paying attention to how horror is doing at the box office. Since before the phenomenal success of the incredibly bad Halloween remake, they’ve been working on a new Friday the 13th (“New Friday in ‘09”? – July 2007), as you know. But what about that other New Line franchise?
Well, if the official Doomsday site is to be believed (and why would they have inaccurate information?) Neil (Dog Soldiers, The Descent) Marshall’s upcoming post-apocalyptic adventure, Doomsday, finally has a release date; March 14th, 2008. Holy shit! That’s just a week after Fear Fest where Marshall is scheduled to be a guest! Now you gotta go, suckas! Keep it here for more Doomsday goodies very soon!
In the world of independent filmmaking there are those with talent and those without. There's really no in between judging by the number of movies I've been sent this year. Rarely do any of them just sit in the middle and such is the case with Die and Let Live (review).
Issue #75 Jan/Feb 2008 For the first time in as long as I’ve been reading the magazine, Rue Morgue has a wide-release movie as its cover story after the film has already hit theaters. Something about that little fact disturbs me, though I can’t rightly say what...
Could the sudden move for the release date of The Poughkeepsie Tapes actually be a good thing? A few days back it was revealed that the film had been removed from the dumping ground that is February to an undetermined future date. Heads were scratched.
Slasherpool's Insomnifest (the world's first online only film festival) has been coming along rather nicely these past few weeks. Already several horror movies from around the globe are getting scooped up and even more are on their way.
Last week we gave you word on the first-ever Chilean zombie film, Descendents (“Zombies Get Chile” – December 2007), and today the freaky head trippers over at Twitch Film managed to get their bloodied mandibles on the first trailer for the film, which you can simply scroll down to see for yourself.
The first trailer for William (House on Haunted Hill, Feardotcom) Malone’s latest feature, Parasomnia found its way online via the folks over at Horror.com and it’s worth a look if you’re in the mood for something weird.
2007. What a year! Talk about ups and downs! While there were quite a few bright spots, we're all still healing from last February, or as we here at Dread Central lovingly refer to it -- The 28 Days of Suck™!
I really can’t wait for Doomsday. Neil Marshall’s track record to date has shown us a director who loves working in our genre and knows how to do it right and even though Doomsday isn't horror, it is post-apocalyptic and in my book, that’s close enough.
I have zero hope that the Prom Night remake is going to be worth even half of the mentions we’ve given it here on the site, but since we are slaves to the will of horror fans, it is my duty to keep you informed about what’s going on with it. Even if I don’t want to.
Dark Sky Films has been known for releasing some very strange titles since their inception (Werewolves on Wheels, anyone?), and they have every intention of continuing that tradition with two new additions they just announced for release this January 29th.
It’s not a huge chunk of news, but could be pretty exciting for Hitman helmer Xavier Gens (interview) when it comes to getting attention for his next film, Vanikoro.
