Looks like He Who Walks Behind the Rows is preparing to make a return to trip to Iowa’s Quad Cities. A reader threw us a heads-up that the Quad City Times has a new article up about the Children of the Corn remake that’s set to go in front of cameras next month.
It used to be Stephen King was a pretty easy guy to keep up with; he released a new book every few years, we’d do a story on it and eventually a review, then sit back and wait for the next project. Nowadays, though, it seems like King’s got way too much to keep up with.
Author Joe Hill (Heart-Shaped Box) recently sat down with the folks at Fangoria to discuss some of the various horror projects his name is attached to, first and foremost his IDW comic Locke & Key, which they will be releasing a sequel to in the coming months.
I suppose it was inevitable that The Witches of Eastwick would find its way back in front of our eyeballs at some point. The original is a pretty damn good film, and whenever that happens, there’s always someone in Hollywood looking to sequelize and/or remake it.
Between The Wolfman, Underworld 3 and now Lobo, it’s positively a lycanthropic revolution in horror these days. Variety learned this morning of Lobo, a new acquisition from Stone Village (Love in the Time of Cholera, The Master and Margarita. The spec script is about a colony of nearly extinct werewolves in Brazil.
Darin Scott, whom you may know as one of the minds behind Tales From The Hood, dropped us a line today with a batch of stills (some of which are exclusive) from his new film, Dark House, and I have to say ... this flick looks really, really badass!
This is what happens, guys, when you try and get romantic with your lady. You take her out to a nice, remote spot with plans to propose and for your troubles you get vandalized by thugs who torture your girl and make your life a living hell.
Reporting on Comic-Con, but not actually being there is pretty depressing for that first week, then everyone starts uploading videos they "shouldn't" have taken at the event and it's like we're there. OK, not really .... but I'll fake it for now.
If this is not the most badass thing you’ve seen all day ... you’re having a better day than I am. Image just gave Newsarama an exclusive look at their upcoming Dracula Meets the Wolf -Man, which hits stand this week.
Detective Comic's Wildstorm label is set to release a second volume of Friday the 13th comics.
UPDATE:Yesterday I noticed that there was already conflicting information out there about the new Creepshow series, but it was kind of hard to care after learning Taurus Entertainment was involved. So, we just ran with the press release and let it be.
Another rumor put to rest today, and this one I have to say makes me a bit sad, cause I thought the initial concept was a good one.
We landed ourselves a very saucy exclusive look at Blitzkrieg: Escape From Stalag 69 this morning which begs the question; how does one top starting off one’s week with a naked girl brandishing a machine gun? Isn’t the rest of week all downhill from there?
**UPDATE: All right, we just got 100% confirmation from Warner Bros that they will NOT be releasing Trick 'r Treat. So I guess it's back to square one as the film looks for distro... it was fun while it lasted, though, wasn't it? ** I don’t want anyone getting too excited until we get something 100% official from Warner Bros, but a source very close to Michael Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat just dropped us a line with a look at the brand-new poster for the film!
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to Patrick Lussier’s remake of My Bloody Valentine, and not just because it’s going to be in 3D. No, the more I read about the more it sounds like it’s going to be a damn solid horror film.
