Well, another Screamfest is behind us yet again! Man it seems like these things take forever to get here and then are gone in the blink of an eye. This year’s winners have been selected and instead of droning on about how special they all are in their own way, as I am want to do, just dig on the list below!
So the 5th annual Rock and Shock convention in Worcester, MA has come and gone and I have to say, this show keeps getting better and better as its reputation grows and word spreads about it.
You may recall a few months back we first told you guys about a new film in the works from Mondo Macabro called Filthy. The brainchild of Abandoned writer Karim Hussain, Filthy is still just a concept, but it’s one of the sickest I’ve ever heard.
I do love finding out about potentially cool new movies, especially when they’re about werewolves, after the film is all done and ready to be seen by the masses! Nothing like taking out the pain of anticipation to make a movie that much more appealing.
Much like his plans for a retelling of Frankenstein in a new and interesting way, Guillermo del Toro wants to make sure that his version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is both faithful and its own beast altogether.
A new teaser trailer for the upcoming Friday the 13th reboot aired during last night’s Scream Awards, and of course a crappy version of it is up on YouTube already! Dig it quick because you know this won’t be out there for long!
Casting is already going down for Joe Dante’s upcoming 3D supernatural thriller, The Hole, which you may recall Dante said he’ll be tackling next before possibly moving on to Bat Out of Hell.
We’re now officially at the stage where anything you see in our genre that comes out from The Weinstein Co. or Dimension Extreme, you can expect some kind of prequel or sequel to it within a short window of time. Variety reports this morning that the Weinsteins have just greenlighted a batch of 18 direct-to-video pics for release in 2009.
Earlier this year we discovered that Charles Burns' interesting comic Black Hole, where teens undergo mutations via a sexually transmitted disease, was going to be adapted to the big screen by David Fincher. Then came eight months of silence.
If you haven't picked up Dead Space yet, do it. Oh yeah, there's more news too!
If there was ever news that rolled in slower than a snail, it would be that regarding Stefano Bessoni’s Imago Mortis.
Probably the best birthday present I ever got was the first season of "Dexter". Sure, it wasn't a pony or a gas powered unicycle, but watching a man help solve crimes only to go out and commit them at night makes for some damn fine entertainment.
Looking for a spooky story to set the mood on Halloween night? Thanks to the multi-talented Leopoldo Gout, your search could very well be over.
The good folks at Dark Sky just dropped the trailer for David Gregory’s Plague Town in our laps, which you can check out below. Don't worry, you don’t need to sit in our laps to see it.
A few months ago we told you about Xbox 360's upcoming series of eight short films under the banner "Horror Directors Do Comedy." With names like James Wan, James Gunn, Lucky McKee, Marcus Nispel, and David Slade attached, it's something we've been looking forward to; and now, finally, the premiere is almost upon us!
