Did you really think we'd let the holiday season come and go without at least one more edition of Dinner for Fiends? Well, maybe. There is jack-shit goin' on horror-wise but we delivered anyways!
It is said that, back in the days before photography was a mainstay of the world at large, early practitioners of the art attempted to use a form of it to capture human souls. Of course, the only time the soul could be captured was when it was leaving its host body, and the only way that could happen is death, so said practitioners were not what one would call well regarded.
I know I’m about as sick as I can be of Tim Burton and his works, one of the reasons I’m not looking forward to Alice in Wonderland, but in this case he only served as a producer, alongside Night/Day Watch helmer Timur Bekmambetov, and the result is more than worth paying attention to.
The very cool guys behind the upcoming indie feature Brainjacked just dropped the official trailer for the film in our laps as an early Christmas present to gore fans everywhere!
I’ve been waiting for something to see from the upcoming animated film Monsters Vs. Aliens since the first word came down on the film, but information has been slow in the coming, to say the least. Finally a trailer has arrived, and thankfully it was worth the wait!
We’re up to Year 3 of Horrorfest’s 8 Films to Die For series, and this time around they’re including a bonus release of digital music downloads. After Dark Films is working in conjunction with Primary Wave Special Markets in releasing the first branded soundtracks for the horror festival.
It’s Round 3 for Repo! The Genetic Opera. The little film that wouldn’t die is set for another go at independent theaters across the country this coming January 13th, 2009, in anticipation of the soundtrack and DVD release on January 20th.
Andrew van den Houten’s Offspring is pretty close to the top of my list for most anticipated adaptations of 2009. The Jack Ketchum book on which it’s based is one of my favorites, and this story has been a long time coming to the big screen!
When we last reported on it, Sony’s Stage 6 was set to release David Ondaatje’s remake of The Lodger on December 31st, though we had no idea in what theatrical capacity. As of today, however, things have changed!
The name Bill Landis might not be instantly recognizable to some of us, but for fans of exploitation cinema, he was truly an icon. So it is with much sadness that we pass on the news that Bill suffered a fatal heart attack yesterday.
With the minor exception of Neil Marshall’s Dog Soldiers, a film making its premiere on the Sci Fi Channel is never a good sign. So I have to say I’m concerned that Eric Red’s return to horror, 100 Feet, has been resigned to that fate.
IDW announced today that April 2009 will see the first of a five-issue miniseries for American McGee’s Grimm, a comic vision of the game McGee created for Gametap.
Got a special someone on your list who just loves creepy stuff? LA-based artist David Choe has created something that may suit their needs quite well, especially if they also like extremely unique, limited artwork.
There’s not a shitload of new information in this, the first “official” word from Rob Zombie on Halloween 2, but the recent Fearnet blog posted by Spider, frontman of Powerman 5000 and brother of Mr. Zombie, does have some juicy chunks for those of you chomping at the bit for more.
The artwork and release dates for two anticipated films from Anchor Bay have finally surfaced over on Amazon; how fortuitous that you can just scroll down to the bottom and pre-order both of them through Evilshop!
