So far the opinions on Shrooms, the new horror film coming our way from Ireland via Magnet Releasing, has been pretty mixed. I’ve heard everything from venomous, bitter hatred to high praise. When a film gets that kind of varied reaction, you know you have to check it out.
Sundance kicked into gear as of yesterday in Park City, UT, and all those LA people now have to deal with what we East Coasters face as a fact of life: snow. All I can say to that is HA!

The writers may still be on strike, but other projects that were put into motion before the movement can still be made. That's good news for us John Carpenter fans since we've been waiting several months to hear more about his horror flick L.A. Gothic (“Carpenter Goes Gothic?” – July 2007).
Cloverfield (review) has yet to even open nationwide, but the seeds may already be planted for a sequel. While nothing is solid and it may have only been a passing comment, director Matt Reeves did hint that in the digital world we live in today many movies could have been made the night N.Y.
I really can’t wait to see if the upcoming horror movie staring Finish monsters Lordi, Dark Floors, is worth all the attention we’ve been piling on it so far. I mean, it’s nowhere near a U.S. release date and we’re talking about it at least once a week. I guess I’m just a sucker for monsters.

Hitting the 2007 San Diego Comic Con is always a psychotic ride for any reporter. For someone covering horror toys for Dread Central, to borrow a line from Slither, it’s like finding a needle in a fuck-stack!
For those horror loving freaks we love so much who don't usually hunker down for a night of normal prime time TV, here is your heads up. This Thursday, January 17th at 9pm et/pt on CBS (check local listings for exactly where to park your eyeballs, CSI features a rebroadcast of "Go To Hell", an episode where the usual trail of carnage may point to demonic intervention!
Just got an e-mail today regarding the disappearance of several people who went missing about a year ago while camping in the middle of the Bible Woods, in Ohio. Never let it be said that we here at Dread Central do not have a heart. At this time we'd like to take this opportunity to bring some awareness and maybe even help to this horrid situation.
