Though I seriously doubt we’ll be seeing this poster in theaters anytime soon, today we got our hands on some concept art for Solomon Kane, which we last updated you on this morning. If the art is any indication they’re taking some liberties with Robert E. Howard’s story and giving it more of an action spin, but man the Van Helsing similarities are almost painful, aren't they? Keep it on Dread Central for more Solomon Kane news as we get it!
In just about a month Insomnifest will hit the net. The first ever online-only film festival will bring us 12 horror flicks from around the world and right to your home for only $4.99 a ticket.
We've got a lot of toy/collectible news today, so I've decided to put it all into this nice big article. Special thanks to Paul Nomad for gathering all this up for us!
You know, you’d think after Fangoria TV, the dudes and dudettes at the mag would have better video playback facilities… Anyway, today they got the first look at the brand-new trailer for Doug Buck’s Sisters, the remake of the Brian DePalma flick that Image Entertainment will be releasing on DVD on March 11th, 2008 (“Sisters DVD Art” – December 2007). Check out the new Sisters trailer here and get a taste of what you’re in for.
A quick heads-up to indie filmmakers out there; it’s very hard to catch the interest of this staff with just an e-mail. I wouldn’t say we’re jaded so much as just sick of wasting time on films that turn out to be shite. When we do get an e-mail asking for some support, however, we always makes sure we read the whole thing and check out what there is about the movie, just in case. Correct spelling and punctuation can do wonders, by the way.
An impressive lineup of genre actors have joined up with James Purefoy for Michael (Deathwatch) Bassett’s upcoming adaptation of Robert E. Howard’s Solomon Kane, the first in a planned trilogy, which we first told you about back here. Purefoy plays the eponymous hero.

Though it’s not much outside of discussion of White Noise 2 (DVD review), Moviehole just posted an interview with the DTV sequel’s director, Patrick Lussier (Dracula 2000, among others) that you may want to check out.
Basically this is the supa violent trailer, the one some of you have likely been waiting for to get a taste of what The Signal does to its victims.

The Signal opens on February 22nd in a limited capacity; be sure you see it while you can!
Though I’ve never heard of either Shiver or its director, Isidro Ortiz, the recent horror output from Spain is reason enough to pay attention to anything making it’s way to audiences worldwide.
I am still on the fence about Mitchell Lichtenstein's horror/comedy flick Teeth (review). Kasch loved it, but the trailer really isn't selling it to me as a comedy film, or even a horror one at that.
After an all-too-brief theatrical run (“U.S Dates for Them!” – July 2007), Dark Sky have finalized the specs and artwork for their release of the French ass-kicker Them (review); March 25th, 2007.
We’ve been keeping close tabs on the filmmaking career of Mark Steensland (“Sucker”, “Lovecraft’s Pillow”) and it’s a good thing, too, because it’s moving pretty damn quick now.
Now this could be interesting: a horror movie about an alien invasion that causes any human who comes in contact with the invaders to spontaneously combust. And it’s set in the middle of a snowstorm!
