First, sorry for the lack of DVD lists these past few weeks, I’ve been hellaciously busy. Which is saying something considering how easy this list is now! But here you go, your list of horror DVDs for Tuesday, October 21st, 2008! Hope you have a Blu-ray player!
Wondering who took home the gold and can't wait for the broadcast?!? We've got you covered! Get ready for the spoilers!
We just got a very cool scoop from a spy who got to chat with Friday the 13th 3-D supervisor Martin Sadoff recently. He revealed to us that he’s in the process of trying to get the film released onto Blu-ray in its original 3-D format!
All right, I’ve seen some weird shit during this ongoing political campaign, but I really thought the choice of Palin as Republican vice presidential candidate was going to be the most insane. Leave it to Sid Haig to prove me wrong.
Issue #83 October 2008 Seems like just the other day my former editor contacted me about this new horror magazine from Canada who really wanted to start getting U.S. exposure called Rue Morgue. I agreed to check it out, even interviewed the editor-in-chief at the time, Rodrigo Gudino, and thus began a love affair with one of the coolest horror magazines ever produced.
Now this is what I call a well-stacked site! Sure it may not be the most spooky of places right off the bat, but the official Coraline site has got a lot of goodies to explore and eventually you’re bound to find something that gives you the chills.
Those underground cave dwellers over at Quiet Earth got the chance to chat up Bill Malone at the world premiere of his long-awaited Parasomnia and got the lowdown on the man’s next project, a sci-fi epic called Phoenix Dust.
The hipsters over at Entertainment Weekly have gotten their virtual hands on the first pics from Christian Alvart’s Pandorum, his sci-fi epic that stars Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster as a pair of crew members who awaken on a spaceship with no knowledge of who they are or why they’re there.
At the recent Scream Awards, which went down last night in Hollywood, word came down to STYD that Ron Perlman is jumping on board Season of the Witch, the period horror piece from Gone in 60 Seconds helmer Dominic Sena.
There have been many good things to come out of the 2008 Scream Awards (expect a list of winners soon), and an interesting little tidbit has crept its way into our ever listening ears. Saw sequel and Repo-man Darren Lynn Bousman let it fly tonight that he will be making another horror movie with Twisted Pictures that will star Repo alumna Alexa Vega.
Thanks to the great people who put on Rock and Shock each year in beautiful downtown Worcester, Mass., I had last week off from Wrap-Up duties; but now, despite this nasty cold I brought home with me, it's back to work.
Well, at least we can end the week on the good news that Zack Snyder’s long-awaited zombie epic, Army of the Dead, has still got a pulse. As it were.
The Weinsteins can’t seem to make up their mind as to who should be at the helm of their ill-conceived Hellraiser remake, having cycled through both the team who made Feast and the team who made Inside, but at least they seem to have settled on using a French director.
Earlier this week the local indie mavens making Beg, which to date had the likes of Tony Moran and Tiffany Shepis to boast in its cast, got the chance to add Tony Todd to their list of horror stars, and we’ve got the photographic evidence to prove it!
It's not unusual for us to do stories based on tips sent to us by readers. This time the inspiration for the story comes from a thread on our own message board. Microbudget filmmaker Sonny Fernandez has pretty much been running what amounts to a production blog in the "INDIEcent" section of our message board on the filming of his latest feature The Last Battleground.
