Grudge 3 Helmer's Splinter Site is Live!

The official site for Toby Wilkins’ feature debut, Splinter, kicked in the doors of the internet over the weekend and it’s very ... pointy. Lots and lots of sharp edges on this one, but don’t take my word for it; check out the Splinter site here to see what I mean.

Boston Gets a Feast of Flesh!

Hey, New Englanders, looking for a good way to kick-start your Halloween celebrations? While normally I would suggest some good old fashioned virginal sacrifices mixed with a healthy dose of bloodletting, this year I’m ready to try something different: a Feast of Flesh!

Uncut Friday the 13th Confirmed

Red State a Test of Smith as Filmmaker

Before you commit too much eyeball time to this story, just know there’s nothing new in terms of where Red State is at production-wise, just a very interesting viewpoint from its director, Kevin Smith.

Exclusive Echo Game Shots

Director Brian Feeney threw some exclusive stills from behind the scenes of his directorial debut, Echo Game, which we gave you the first word on last week. Nothing too revealing so don’t worry for spoilers; keep it on Dread for updates on this very cool sounding indie!

Another Look at Silent Hill Homecoming

Some games just aren’t done justice by screenshots and Silent Hill Homecoming is one of them. Every time I see screens of the game, it tempers my excitement for it, but then I get to see new video footage, and it pushes my excitement right back up to max.

FearNet Gets Midnight Meat Train

All right, so Midnight Meat Train didn’t get the kind of theatrical play that would’ve made sense, but at least you won’t have to wait for the eventual DVD to check it out, as long as you get FearNet, that is.

Vomit on Your Friends in Left 4 Dead

We’ve talked before about the option to play as the boss zombies in Left 4 Dead, but it was starting to look like that might not happen. First of all the option was removed from the co-op mode to prevent anyone from coming in and ruining the fun of the survivors. Then a new competitive mode where you took turns playing as humans and zombies was talked about, though it wasn’t guaranteed to make it into the shipping version of the game.

Dread Central's Poster Store!

Back in the day we used to utilize All Posters.com as part of the old Evilshop, the one in which I updated every single thing by hand. Now everything’s dynamic and sexy so it’s time we upgrade, too!

Now Sideshow is celebrating Marvel’s first zombie with this badass collectible from Bowen Designs.

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.
