This morning one of the ghouls over at Anchor Bay UK dropped the goods news in our laps that they’ve acquired the latest Coffin Joe film, Embodiment of Evil, for DVD release in Great Britain!

Exclusive Red Sands Clip!

Exclusive: Alien Raiders Commentary Track!

Here at Dread Central we try and bring you goodies no one else can or will, up to and including asking filmmakers to do things just for us. Usually this means sending us a pic or two from their film that no one else has, but when we saw that Ben Rock’s excellent Alien Raiders was going to hit DVD without a commentary track from its director, we set out to do something about it.

New Bio-Slime Pics

While we’re still waiting to find out when we’ll actually get to see John Lechago’s awesomely-titled Bio-Slime for ourselves, the sickos over at Undead Backbrain just nabbed a slew of exclusive images from the upcoming sci-fi/horror hybrid, one of which you can see on your right.

Rondo Hatton Award Nominees

The nominees for the 7th annual Rondo Hatton Awards have been announced, and while Dread Central isn't among them this time around, there are quite a few familiar names on the list. The first that caught my eye is "The Blind Date of Coffin Joe" for Best Independent Production.

Jason II Attacked by Fan!

Truth is certainly stranger than fiction sometimes. According to a story in the New York Post, Warrington Gillette, who played Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part 2, was injured during an event honoring the new remake.

Clive Barker on Hell, Meat & More!

Simply calling Clive Barker a master of horror almost seems inadequate. A more fitting description might be to describe him as a visionary genius who has had a profound effect on the horror industry by not only setting the bar with visceral and sexual imagery but by also leaving his mark in the literary world for almost 30 years now.
