Here's a bit of odd news: Last year we heard that the live-action adaptation of the Dylan Dog comics was going to be directed by Snakes on a Plane helmer David R. Ellis (“Dylan Dog is Superman?!” – October 2007), but all that looks to have changed.
Our man Andrew Kasch was just at an Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem DVD event that was also attended by, among others, effects man Tom Woodruff (Tremors, Alien 3, Wolf, Starship Troopers, etc.). Tom gave the crowd in attendance the good news that one of his next gigs would be Paul Weitz’s Cirque du Freak!
The road to getting your vision on video can be one hell of a struggle. Our buddy and filmmaker Kiven Head knows this well. For several months now he has been raising funds via a raffle so that his movie, The Undertakers: Road's End, can come to life (“The Undertakers Need Zombies” – February 2008).
Every now and then we get these cryptic e-mails from people trying to drum up interest in some indie venture or another, but very rarely do they ever turn out to be anything.

All right, we’re finally getting down to the nitty gritty casting for the Platinum Dunes remake of Friday the 13th, which starts rolling in Austin, TX on April 21st.

Good old Lionsgate; their DVD division can always be counted on to provide us with a constant supply of low budget fright flicks. Today I decided to help spread the word about six of the more low profile Lionsgate straight-to-DVD horror offerings coming in the next three months, starting from June and working backwards.

I’m not exaggerating when I say that Monster-Mania is one of the best run convention series in the world. I feel that since I cover around 8 conventions a year, I’m qualified to say this!
