Are you, like the rest of us, pissed at how Grindhouse was treated on DVD when it was released here in the states? Refuse to buy it until Dimension caves and puts both films and the faux trailers in one set?
Among assorted other DVD news, the Fangoria ghouls got their hands on the DVD info for Ti West’s follow up to his equally loved and hated debut, The Roost, the hunter-becomes-hunted flick Trigger Man.
Tim Sullivan’s getting ready to get back behind the camera for 2001 Maniacs; Beverly Hellbillys very soon, but that’s not all the director has up his sleeve as he revealed in a recent interview with Windy City Times.
Despite, or maybe because of, the fact that most of Hollywood is shut down for at least another week, the folks at Emmemax Films are still working night and day to finish their first feature, Lonely Joe, which we gave you an update on a few weeks back (“Filming Wraps on Lonely Joe” – November 2007).
You know the old saying, "Careful what you wish for?" Some of you apparently wished for a special edition of Dinner For Fiends consisting entirely of me rambling about movies good and bad - mostly bad. Well, you got it. God help us all.
There are times, running this site, that I feel very well-connected to most levels of what’s going on in our beloved genre. Then there are times when I feel like an uncultured heathen with barely a grasp on what’s happening around me. Usually the latter happens after a visit to Twitch Film.
A Sacramento- based CBS affiliate just posted a video interview with Chain Letter director Deon Taylor, fulfilling the promise I made this morning. See how good I am?
A few weeks back we had the opportunity to host the premiere of the latest short film from Mark Steensland, the adaptation of Kealan Patrick Burke’s short story “Peekers”. I would love to point you to it now but we only had it for 48 hours, so I hope you checked it out when you had the chance!
Michael Bailey Smith is a horror actor on the rise. Sure, he’s been working for years in various roles both with and without makeup, but more and more lately he’s making himself a known face to horror fans, which is something we’re all about.
All right, so I’m not a big fan of vampire movies, nor am I a big fan of sequels that come along over 20 years after their originals, but I have to admit a morbid curiosity for The Lost Boys 2: The Tribe.
I know you’ve all spent your holidays in a state of worry about what the status was on Catherine Hardwicke’s teen vampire film Twilight, but now you’re mind can finally be at ease. Casting is underway and production is set to start soon.
Yet another badass Christmas gift has shown up! One of my favorite underrated werewolf movies of all time is Eric Red’s Bad Moon, and those sick bastards at Arrow in the Head managed to tap into that love just in time for Xmas! Red has delivered the full, uncut, NC-17 rated opening scene from Bad Moon as a present to everyone who likes nudity and gore ... which is everyone! Check it out below!
Now this is a holiday treat! AICN got word from Neil Gaiman that the first footage from the Henry (Nightmare Before Christmas) Selick – directed adaptation of Coraline is finally online! We grabbed it and threw it into Video Dread for ease of viewing, but you can feel free to get the original, large Quicktime file through the AICN link.
When we left the cast and crew of Last of the Living, a New Zealand indie zombie film that promises to be low on budget but high on action, they were still looking for any and all financial backing they could get (“Give to the Last of the Living” – August 2007). Looks like things are on the upswing for the filmmakers now!
I love reading interviews with Guillermo del Toro, I really do. The man just knows his shit and has so many projects he’s juggling at once, it’s great to just read him talking about them, even if we’re all aware that most may never see the light of day. Hopefully At the Mountains of Madness is not one of those...
