Though I’ve never heard of either Shiver or its director, Isidro Ortiz, the recent horror output from Spain is reason enough to pay attention to anything making it’s way to audiences worldwide.
I am still on the fence about Mitchell Lichtenstein's horror/comedy flick Teeth (review). Kasch loved it, but the trailer really isn't selling it to me as a comedy film, or even a horror one at that.
After an all-too-brief theatrical run (“U.S Dates for Them!” – July 2007), Dark Sky have finalized the specs and artwork for their release of the French ass-kicker Them (review); March 25th, 2007.
We’ve been keeping close tabs on the filmmaking career of Mark Steensland (“Sucker”, “Lovecraft’s Pillow”) and it’s a good thing, too, because it’s moving pretty damn quick now.
Now this could be interesting: a horror movie about an alien invasion that causes any human who comes in contact with the invaders to spontaneously combust. And it’s set in the middle of a snowstorm!
How would you like to be in NYC when the shit goes down on January 18th, 2008? I know I sure as hell would love it, so I’ve already RSVP’d myself to this kicking party the makers of Cloverfield are putting on to celebrate the release of the film. But here, let me let them tell you about it;
Let’s say I’m not the only person walking around on two legs right now without cable. I know, it’s almost hypothetical at this point, but just go with me here. If that were the case, then the recent announcement that CBS will be airing the first seasons of “Dexter”, the massive Showtime hit about a forensics expert who moonlights as a serial killer, is some very fine news to those of us who lack the pay channel.
We received an e-mail today from a name I haven't heard in some time. The beatiful Krista Grotte contacted us to spread the word about a film she wrote with Playboy photographer Bo Hitchcock called Alarum.
Nothing puts me in a better mood than getting exclusive images from a movie. OK, that mood is even more rich when said pics happen to include lots of nudity and puppets. Today such a dream came true when we got three new images from Black Devil Doll with F/X by Ed Martinez! **WARNING: THESE ARE NOT SAFE FOR WORK!!!**
Author, screenwriter and artist Stephen Romano wants to take us on a trip behind-the-scenes of 101 of the sleaziest films you've never seen! Impossible? Why, no sir! Nothing like this is beyond reach thanks to his new book Shock Festival.
Seeing that Transformers hottie Megan Fox is playing the title character, I wouldn't mind being the one in charge. OK, now that you all are physically sick, we'll move on to the real news about who has been chosen to direct the pic.
Well, shit, I sure am glad I waited to do a story on the official French-language Frontiere(s) site, which showed up online a few days back, since Fangoria just got word that the film will be out in theaters on May 2nd, 2008!
Here in the U.S., we’re lucky if a horror film with monsters and gore gets any kind of decent distribution. Over in Finland, they’re celebrating the fact that they even have a horror film with monsters and gore in a very big way.
We've been talking a lot about Insomnifest this month (“Grief & Gutterballs for Insomnifest” – January 2008), but I think it's time for an official recap of the event.
All right, so we took way too long to get together and talk about Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem (review) but, believe it or not, most of the venom is still very fresh!
