A true genre legend has passed on. Maila Nurmi, known to fans as Vampira, passed away in her sleep at the age of 86 due to natural causes. Born Maila Elizabeth Syrjäniemi on December 21, 1921, Nurmi will always be remembered for her classic Gothic look that inspired many of our favorite horror icons including the world famous Elvira. Nobody did it better. Nobody ever will.
Seems like it’s been a long time since we got an update on Lamberto Bava’s return to horror, Ghost Son, but thankfully we can report on it again with good news.
First there was Wesley. Then there was Sticky. Now Blade comes to life in the most versatile form yet; polystone!
Our man Nomad recently sat down with most of the cast and crew of Joshua to discuss the movie and since it just hit DVD on Tuesday (get it here), now’s the best time to get acquainted with these strange lads and ladies, don’t you think?
Long before he started making movies full time, Rodrigo Gudino was the editor in chief of Rue Morgue Magazine, which is how I first came to know him. When he announced that he would formally step down from the position to follow his dream of being a filmmaker, I admit I was a bit nervous as to what his output would be like.
All right, now we’re talking. Just got a heads up that the official trailer for George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (review) has finally hit online via the film’s MySpace page. Preceding it is a special message from the Zombie King himself announcing a contest for short filmmakers to win a chance to get their short on the DVD for Diary. Now that’s a great idea!
The cast for Cirque du Freak, the Paul Weitz-helmed adaptation of Darren Shan’s YA book series, just got a whole lot sexier. Not that I have anything against John C. Reilly (“Reily Vamps Out” – November 2007); Salma Hayek is just much easier on the eyes.
If you’re a MySpace freak like seemingly half of the world’s population, chances are you’ve said to yourself at least once “self, how can I use my MySpace page to promote upcoming horror movies?”
Good news for those of us have who’ve literally been waiting for years to finally see Chris (I Know Who Killed Me) Sivertson’s adaptation of Jack Ketchum's The Lost (review).
The first semi-clear look at the Cloverfield monster is finally online, and Daily Motion got it exclusively. Keep in mind, I said it’s semi clear, no big reveals here… but they’re right when they say “it’s alive, it’s huge!”. Check it out below! Cloverfield opens eveywhere on Friday, January 18th!
Not that it would be surprising in the least, but a new rumor about BioShock coming to the big screen found its way onto Joystiq today. The popular 2K Games videogame is about the most amazing piece of cinematic gameplay I’ve been immersed in for a long time, so the thought of seeing it made into a movie is both exciting and terrifying at the same time.
A few days back we showed you the first poster for Bind ("Bind Poster Unbound" - December 2007"), a killer-in-the-woods throwback slasher from Upcoming Horror Movies maestro Dan Walton. Devon Sawa, Tony Todd and Ken Foree were some of the names attached, but what about the fairer sex?
Now that it’s been confirmed over and over that yes, The Host 2 will be a prequel, more and more information is cropping up about it, specifically today from Sci Fi Japan, who got a look at the first conceptual sketch from the film.
I am not sure if there will be another After Dark Horrorfest this year. While the idea is pretty awesome (having showings nationwide of horror films most people wouldn't see in theatres), there was just nothing very interesting in last year's selection.
