On Saturday night my lovely wife and I headed out into the chilly New England weather to brave the line of fans anxiously awaiting their chance to finally see Repo!
Paddy Breathnatch made his unique name known with Shrooms (DVD review), one of the first horror movies made about the dangers of psychotropic mushrooms (well, kind of). Now he’s back with Red Mist (back from its modified title of Freakdog), which Anchor Bay has prepped for a DVD release on February 10th.
This morning we were provided with a batch of stills from the upcoming indie slasher The Id Proxy, which is coming our way from director Matthew C. Dumond. The story follows a man named Will, pushed to the edge by events beyond his control, whose despair leads to a psychotic rage that no one will walk away from.
If you’re going to tell the story of Lucifer’s fall from Heaven, you’d better have a good chunk of not just change, but creativity as well behind you. Thankfully Scott Derrickson understands this, which is why he’s been discussing production ideas for his forthcoming adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost with Guillermo del Toro.
I’m not sure just how firmly rooted in our genre this one will be, but it’s a new film from Snakes on a Plane and Final Destination 2/4 director David R. Ellis, so if nothing else it’ll be fun. Actually, anyone who's seen Asylum (DVD review) can make a good argument why it may not be, but I digress.
I don’t think it’s a smart idea for Summit Entertainment to fuck with a good thing, box office-wise if not quality-wise, so early out of the gate.
With a third Wrong Turn on the way and Rob Schmidt, director of the original, having his own new film, The Alphabet Killer seeing release soon, those Aussie bastards at Moviehole had to ask Schmidt if he’d consider returning to the series.
With the Xbox 360 Resident Evil 5 demo hitting Japan earlier this week, naturally some effort was put into getting our hands on it sooner rather than later, and now we can report back on how the game is looking and how well the demo plays.
Ladies and gentlemen, could we finally be looking down the barrel of the first Coffin Joe movie done entirely in English? Production house One Eyed Films is hoping so, as they've added a project on their official site called Santo Amaro: The Bitter Garden
A few months ago you might recall we did a story that Hasbro’s over priced plastic version of the Cloverfield monster may have been cancelled. Nothing specific was ever said one way or another by the company, unfortunately, so we just had to go with the info available to us, which was that those who pre-ordered were getting notifications that the toy was discontinued.
Ah, love. We really don’t see enough love stories in our genre, but that’s why we have movies like the upcoming Silver Cord; so we can be confused, not sure if we should see it for its horror elements even though it’s all about that most complex of human emotion. Maybe we can learn something?
If you read our previous articles on Dead Snow, you're aware that the film is playing Sundance and looks pretty badss. Dead Snow is the story of some kids who go skiing at a cabin in the mountains. Sounds pretty standard slasher right? Well things go badly when Nazi Zombies rise out of the snow and cause all kinds of mayhem.
Due to too much Thanksgiving turkey, Beaujolais, and fun with friends, the last Weekly Wrap-Up was MIA. But fear not; this week it returns with a vengeance, and since so much transpired from November 28-December 5, 2008, let's get right to it!
Collider managed to eke a bit more information out of actor Will Smith recently regarding plans for an upcoming I Am Legend expansion pack.
Every now and again news comes along that brings a smile to my face. Genre legend and still smokin' hot Sigourney Weaver has been doing a little talking lately about two projects that are near and dear to every horror fan's heart: Ghostbusters 3 and Alien 5!
