Three New Midnight Movie Posters

Jack Messitt, director of the upcoming slasher Midnight Movie, just sent over a nice, big look at the three posters recently created for the film, which will have its world premiere at the Chicago Film Festival on September 27th.

New Look at Megan Good in Saw V

So we’re in that annual time when anything and everything relating to the next Saw film, in this case Saw V, we have to do a news story on because you guys just can’t get enough of it. I guess I don’t blame you; the last movie was pretty damn good so there’s a chance this one will be as well!

Thing Prequel Finally Happening?

For years we’ve been hearing about sequels and/or remakes of John Carpenter’s horror/sci-fi classic The Thing being in various stages of conceptualization. But the one thing that always made sense to horror fans was a film that depicted just what happened to the Norwegian research team who were attacked first.

Condition Dead Going 3D?

When the good zombie movie news rains, it pours. Just a few days ago we heard that Condition Dead, the badass zombie action script My Bloody Valentine 3D helmer Patrick Lussier is attached to direct, might first see some life (pun intended) as a comic series. Hopefully we’ll have more details on that soon, but there’s even cooler news…

The Weekly Wrap-Up: September 6-12, 2008

September 6-12, 2008, was a busy week of serendipity, shorts, and a few surprises.

The Dead Matter Trailer is Live!

This Halloween Hot Topic has decided to celebrate all things dark and spooky (as opposed to their usual light & colorful tone) with the launch of a special Halloween website called, confusingly, T3n Th1rty One (that’s “Ten Thirty-One” for those of you struggling at home).

Exclusive Rest Stop 2 Clip!

Poor Jesse and Nicole. Not even in death could they find peace. Then again, why would we want that? Bring on the ghosts! Today we received an exclusive clip for the new Raw Feed title Rest Stop: Don't Look Back. Is this looking to outdo the original? Share your thoughts below and check out the DVD when it hits stores on October 7th.

Shock N Roll Returns

A while back before he became a director, Tim Sullivan used to write a column in which he would candidly interview horror luminaries called Shock N Roll. It was always a favorite of mine, and now it's making its triumphant return!

A Free Screening to Make You Shiver

Theatre-going-wise the last few weeks have sucked for horror fans. There's been nothing, and I mean nothing, going on. God forbid Lionsgate would have released Repo during this dry spell when it could have made some cash. Anyways, if you're in the California area, we've got something for you to do!

Exclusive Look at The Echo Game

Yesterday we received word from director Brian Feeney about his debut directorial venture, a film called The Echo Game. Intrigued by the title, I looked into it and discovered what looks to be a pretty classy production with an interesting storyline. Really, what more can you ask for?

Hell Ride DVD Art!

Obviously we missed the very short theatrical run of Larry Bishop's Hell Ride last month, which is too bad because I bet it looks great on the big screen...

New Paintball Poster

I’m not sure if this poster is better or worse than the one that was put out to the public before Paintball even started rolling. I would have to say they’re at about the same level of bad, actually.

Chucky Takes Manhattan

I’ve seen some weird shit in the few times I’ve been in Times Square, but man this takes the cake. As you can see from the image below, 20th Century Fox unleashed an army of Chuckys into the heart of Manhattan on Tuesday to promote the release of the Child’s Play: 20th Birthday Edition DVD (review). Instead they promoted normal, everyday citizens wetting themselves, cause these are just ... freaky.

Universal Helps Fund Park's Thirst

Now this is the kind of news I like to end the week with! Variety reports this morning that Universal and Focus Features have jumped on board Old Boy director Chan-Wook Park’s Thirst, his vampire film that’s currently in production, putting in money and adding themselves as co-producers on the film.

Finally! A Repo Trailer!

Finally Lionsgate has put together and gotten around to approving an official trailer for Darren Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera! I know you really want to check it out so I won’t bore you with jibba jabba.
