In California and got nothing going on this Friday? Don't sit home playing Halo 3, head out to L.A. and check out Adam Green's latest psychodrama, Spiral (review here), on the big screen followed by an audience Q and A.
It's been quite some time since we've raved about the goodness that was Frank Sudol's City of Rott (review here), and if you haven't see it yet, brother, you'd best get to ordering! Frank dropped us a line today to let us know about something new!
Remember when the horror flick flick called Dead Air was supposed to come out during the winter of 2007? Yeah, that didn't seem to happen. It just sort of vanished. This really pissed me off since the idea of watching two DJs trying to get the word out about a terrorist-born zombie contagion sounds pretty cool.
A few months back, you might recall we gave you the first word on a new horror flick that seemed to come from nowhere called Midnight Movie (“First Look at Midnight Movie!” – September 2007). Since then all has been pretty quite for the flick, but today we got a progress report from director Jack Messitt.
Those crazy bastards over at Icons of Fright just got the first look at the trailer for Steve Mena’s Malevolence: Bereavement, the prequel to his 2005 debut, Malevolence. The film is the story of the breaking of Martin Bristol, the killer we witnessed messing things up in the first movie, as he’s trained to be a remorseless madman by serial killer Graham Sutter. No word on a release date yet but we’ll keep you posted.
Remakes. We hate them, we love them, we just cannot seem to get away from them. Hell, some of our most cherished horror films are remakes: The Thing, The Fly, When a Stranger Calls ... all right, maybe not that last one.
Magnolia Pictures will be releasing Shrooms in a very, very limited capacity this Friday, February 8th. To celebrate, or just get you in the mood for its March 25th DVD date, we’ve got four clips from the film for your ocular enjoyment! Check ‘em out below and be sure to visit the official Shrooms site for the theater listings and a lot more!
Richard Kelly just updated his MySpace blog with some very good news last night; The Box is a wrap! The horror movie starring Frank Langella, Cameron Diaz (pictured) and James Marsden and has been shooting in Boston (d’oh!) and Virginia for the past few weeks and is now officially in the can!
Nothing like seeing two monsters getting ready to duke it out in serious smackdown action. That is, except for actually seeing said smackdown action. Now that’s fun.
Those young hipsters over at MTV just got their well-manicured hands on the latest trailer for Funny Games, Michael Haneke’s remake of his own 1997 original. Naomi Watts and Tim Roth take the roles of a couple who are taken hostage while on vacation by a pair of very disturbed yuppies. Check out the new trailer, with an intro by said yuppies (Michael Pitt & Brady Corbet) below! Funny Games is in theaters March 14th!
Yesterday we got official word from Warnrer Bros that Raw Feed entry Otis would be making its premiere at this year’s South by Southwest festival, running March 7th-15th. But Otis is just one of many new horror entries making their debut, as we found out today when the official lineup was announced.
Holy Cowboys for Christ! Whose butt did we really see doubling for Britt Ekland in Robin Hardy's 1973 Wicker Man (review)? Jane Jackson, right? No?! Oh my God, who?!
Now this is what I’m talking about! Though we’ve not seen much from SOTA Toys in a long time, they made up for their silence with the badass Old Ones you see below. Super Cthulhu! A brand-new resin statue that’s a whole new look at your real god. Sideshow will also be carrying a variant of the figure, so you get a choice of your Cthulhu! The statue will be making it’s way out in June of this year, so look for it, people!
Lots of good stuff coming our way from Raw Feed’s Otis today; first up, the good news that the Tony Krantz-helmed movie is opening this year’s South by Southwest. Obviously Warner Bros. is pretty damn happy with Otis, made for their direct-to-DVD line, if they’re premiering it in front of such a hip crowd.
The fine folks over at Devil's Due Publishing are granting some of us our wishes and bringing back the pre-Rob Zombie Michael Myers via comic book form (“New Images From Halloween: Nightdance!” – December 2007).
