Over the weekend, we did a story linking back to an article in USA Today about Romero’s new Dead film, which is wrapping up shooting in Toronto in the next few days. A line from said article stated that characters from both Land and Diary of the Dead would be returning in the new movie, which seems to have got some fans in a tizzy already.
Just a few more days until the next Fear Fest goes down at the Arlington Convention Center in Texas, did you get your tickets for it yet? If you say “no” allow me to say "what the hell!?" This show’s going to kick a lot of ass, it being our first of hopefully many pairings with the good folks behind Wizard World, so you really shouldn’t think of missing it.
It seems like every time Phil & Sarah over at Revelations put up a new interview with Clive Barker, I never have more than a few minutes to skim through it to find the good bits for you guys. These interviews are always huge, funny, informative and give the kind of insight into the mind of Clive that you simply cannot get anywhere else, so how can a few minutes be enough?
Halloween is past us so the list is gonna be tiny for a while, but there’s still some good stuff hitting DVD on Tuesday, November 4th, 2008. Check it out!
Kevin Smith is a determined man; you have to respect that. Even though he can’t seem to find anyone who will cough up the coin needed to fund his next movie, the heady horror film Red State, he’s not about to give up and just go back to making comedies.
Not much is known about the upcoming game from EA that may or may not be called Dante’s Inferno when it hits the game market next year, but Universal has outbid three other studios to make sure they’ve got their hands on the movie rights for it so it’s got to be something pretty special.
Uncle Creepy just phoned in with some interesting news straight from the Halloween: 30 Years of Terror convention in Pasadena, CA.
The first still from Romero’s next zombie opus, which we’re now officially referring to as Island of the Dead until we’re told otherwise, showed up on Halloween over at USA Today, of all places, as well as a bit
A while back you may recall a small bit of news about J.T. Petty (S&Man, The Burrowers) working on an adaptation of the popular Japanese book/manga Goth: A Novel of Horror. What may not have been mentioned was that Gen Takahashi was also working on one in the book’s homeland, as well, which is much further along.
Creepy just checked in with us from the Halloween 30 Years of Terror convention going down in Pasadena, CA with some news direct from Malek Akkad about the sequel to Rob Zombie’s Halloween!
We just got a heads up from the guys at ModernCine with the good news that their next Jack Ketchum adaptation, Offspring, will be shown off at this month’s American Film Market. The film's not going to be done until December, but they're making sure distributors are aware of it with the sales art you see on your right.
A bunch of new behind-the-scenes stills from the upcoming French zombie movie La Horde have shown up over at Cinema Fantastique and as you can see from the sample on the right, they’re pretty damn sexy! In a gory, blood-drenched kinda way, of course...
It’s not much, but it’s something … just got word from one of our sources close to the film that Warner Bros. is finally test screening Trick ‘r Treat for audiences! I’m still not 100% on how the test screening process works, but it’s still a good sign that they’re trying to figure out what to do with it.
The highly anticipated documentary about all things Jason Voorhees, His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, is finally all cut and ready to roll out for fans! We got a heads up today that the documentary will be premiering at the upcoming 2008 Starz Denver Film Festival as part of the festival’s celebration of soon-to-be classics, The Watching Hour.
