Perlman Keeps Hellboy Alive

Ron Perlman has certainly embraced his role as the once and future Hellboy, lending his vocal talents to two animated films about Big Red as well as the upcoming video game Hellboy: The Science of Evil, which has been in development for seemingly ever now.

Teeth Opening Online

In case you hadn't been aware, the Michell Lichtenstein coming-of-age horror film Teeth (review) opens in theaters this Friday, right up against a little monster movie you might have heard of called Cloverfield. The Teeth release is much smaller, so I’m sure it’ll find its audience. Besides, it’s about a girl with teeth in her vagina; what’s not to love?

Exclusive: Shock Festival Posters!

We first told you about author, screenwriter, and artist Stephen Romano's latest project Shock Festival ( "Welcome to the Shock Festival!" - January 2008) just a few days ago, and now we have some exclusive posters to show you that you won't see anywhere else!

NECA's Original Alien

With all the new toys coming out celebrating Alien Vs. Predator and its sequel, I’m sure glad NECA had the presence of mind to go back to the classic original Alien film for their next collectible.

Bousman Ready to Show Repo!

As Darren Lynn Bousman finalizes the editing on Repo! The Genetic Oprea, it sounds like he’s starting to really wonder just how the general populace will react to it. It’s an all-singing horror movie, for God’s sake, I guess you can’t blame him.

Otto Trailer Arrives

A zombie with an identity crisis. That’s how the titular lead of Otto: or Up with Dead People is described in the film’s official synopsis. First time I’ve heard that one!

Lewton Doc Airs This Monday on TCM

Are you as sick and tired of reality shows and reruns as I am? Well, relief is in sight -- at least for one night. On Monday, January 14, at 8:00 pm ET (with an encore at midnight), Turner Classic Movies will be airing Val Lewton: The Man in the Shadows, a new documentary produced and narrated by Martin Scorsese.

R.I.P. Maila Nurmi a.k.a. Vampira

A true genre legend has passed on. Maila Nurmi, known to fans as Vampira, passed away in her sleep at the age of 86 due to natural causes. Born Maila Elizabeth Syrjäniemi on December 21, 1921, Nurmi will always be remembered for her classic Gothic look that inspired many of our favorite horror icons including the world famous Elvira. Nobody did it better. Nobody ever will.

Ghost Son Comes Home

Seems like it’s been a long time since we got an update on Lamberto Bava’s return to horror, Ghost Son, but thankfully we can report on it again with good news.

Sideshow Pits Blade Against Dracula

First there was Wesley. Then there was Sticky. Now Blade comes to life in the most versatile form yet; polystone!

Video Dread Exclusive: Joshua Cast & Crew Interviews!

Our man Nomad recently sat down with most of the cast and crew of Joshua to discuss the movie and since it just hit DVD on Tuesday (get it here), now’s the best time to get acquainted with these strange lads and ladies, don’t you think?

Villainy for Valentines!

Long before he started making movies full time, Rodrigo Gudino was the editor in chief of Rue Morgue Magazine, which is how I first came to know him. When he announced that he would formally step down from the position to follow his dream of being a filmmaker, I admit I was a bit nervous as to what his output would be like.

Diary of the Dead Trailer!

All right, now we’re talking. Just got a heads up that the official trailer for George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (review) has finally hit online via the film’s MySpace page. Preceding it is a special message from the Zombie King himself announcing a contest for short filmmakers to win a chance to get their short on the DVD for Diary. Now that’s a great idea!

Hayek Signs Up for Freak

The cast for Cirque du Freak, the Paul Weitz-helmed adaptation of Darren Shan’s YA book series, just got a whole lot sexier. Not that I have anything against John C. Reilly (“Reily Vamps Out” – November 2007); Salma Hayek is just much easier on the eyes.

Reskin The Eye

If you’re a MySpace freak like seemingly half of the world’s population, chances are you’ve said to yourself at least once “self, how can I use my MySpace page to promote upcoming horror movies?”
