April is gonna be one loaded month as far as horror DVD releases are concerned. I've decided to spotlight ten random B-movie DVD (B-VDs?) releases hitting shelves in the month of April that might otherwise get lost in the shuffle once the April avalanche begins.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from doing the horror DVD list every week, it’s that if you’re in high school or college and plan a weekend trip to anywhere that isn’t overpopulated, you better count on most of your crew getting offed. Everyone’s doing it now, including Chris (The Lost) Sivertson and Adam (Going to Pieces) Rockoff in their latest script, Wicked Lake.
I wonder how this happened ... Ellen Page, who can now say she starred in an Oscar-winning movie (Juno, not Hard Candy or X-Men 3) has decided to back out of Sam Raimi’s return to horror, Drag Me To Hell.
After reporting on delay after delay, it's nice to have something we've been looking forward to actually getting bumped up.
I was shocked and amazed upon visiting a local multiplex not long ago to see that The Orphanage (review) was playing. Then I traveled to another one, and again, it was listed with several screenings. Now, why couldn't Diary of the Dead have gotten that same treatment so some of us didn't have to drive 70 miles for utter disappointment?
A true horror fan can never get enough Dario Argento. I think the people at Anchor Bay know that because we heard through the grapevine that some fancy releases are coming up for a few Argento flicks. What's so fancy? Well, the DVDs will be housed in metal slip-cases! First let's look at some of the most anticipated DVD releases from the maestro.
There's been a steady buzz building around upcoming vampire film Blood Shot, and if our exclusive pics of Michael Bailey Smith as the big bad didn't scare up enough interest for you, we now have some exclusive interviews to go along with them!
Ever hit a guy while driving and thought, "Meh. I'll just leave him embedded on my windshield and hope my homies will come over and dispose of the body"? Doesn't exactly sound like the smart thing to do in real life; yet, it somehow sounds about right for a plot of a movie.
As it stands, My Name is Bruce is still due out sometime this year. Bruce Campbell himself has said it numerous times, and I have no reason not to believe what the Great Chin decrees.
"The Wolf" from Aliens VS Predator: Requiem (review) may not have gotten the treatment he deserved on film, but NECA is making it all OK.
Who knew that Napoleon Dynamite could help promote Marc Schoelermann's Pathology? A new teaser trailer for the film found its way online recently, and color me impressed with the humor.
While browsing the interweb for horror news on this strangely slow day, I saw a very interesting article on Twitch.
Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer looks like a good time. There's monsters, comedy, Robert Englund and a dude beating the hell out of demons with tools. What else could you want?
How exactly do you pull off a horror based anthology on network television? Will all its strengths have to be placed within the storytelling and direction since gore and sex can't be relied upon?
UPDATE: Ever hear the saying "So close, yet so far?" Unfortunately that applies here. As confirmed by Warner Home Video, The Devils will NOT be seeing a DVD release in 2008. Though the door has been left open for a release sometime down the road. Feh.
