I really can’t wait for Doomsday. Neil Marshall’s track record to date has shown us a director who loves working in our genre and knows how to do it right and even though Doomsday isn't horror, it is post-apocalyptic and in my book, that’s close enough.
I have zero hope that the Prom Night remake is going to be worth even half of the mentions we’ve given it here on the site, but since we are slaves to the will of horror fans, it is my duty to keep you informed about what’s going on with it. Even if I don’t want to.
Dark Sky Films has been known for releasing some very strange titles since their inception (Werewolves on Wheels, anyone?), and they have every intention of continuing that tradition with two new additions they just announced for release this January 29th.
It’s not a huge chunk of news, but could be pretty exciting for Hitman helmer Xavier Gens (interview) when it comes to getting attention for his next film, Vanikoro.
Wow, yesterday I discovered that Corey Feldman has his own site; today I learn he’s got a personal blog to go with it. So really, despite him being a grown-up hearththrob to many girls of my generation, he’s just a geek like the rest of us. Just with more money.
YouTube has really outdone itself this time, or at least it’s users have; yesterday we showed you a paltry one TV spot for Cloverfield; today we have seven. Seven, I tells ya! Madness! Cloverfield opens everywhere January 18th, dig the spots below!
Having never seen Cold Prey I am not really sure what to expect from slasher pics made in Norway. According to Twitch the coutnry is about to release its second ever subgenre pic called Rovdyr, but this time it will have a rating of 18+. The film by Patrik Syversen does appear to have a fairly standard slasher plot, but check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
Everything has been pretty quiet in regards to a horror film titled Death Walks the Streets. I can't even remember the last story I personally wrote concerning it, but it must have been some time ago ("Exclusive: Death Walks the Streets Concept Art" - July 2006). But something is stirring on the road ahead.
Actor/Director Michele Soavi has spent many years away from the horror genre. Since his last horror pic, Cemetery Man (review), Soavi has been directing various Italian TV shows ... but that is about to change.
Guillermo Del Toro is a name we should all be familiar with by now. Throughout 2007 the Hellboy helmer's name seemed to crop up in more news stories than any other director, so why shouldn't he in '08?
In case you missed it, a brand-new ad for Cloverfield found its way onto YouTube over the last few days. Nothing terribly new is revealed in it, but there’s some good monster mayhem and a great choice of where to die! Cloverfield opens everywhere January 18th, 2008! Can’t freaking wait!
Corey Feldman gave his fans a Christmas treat that is only just now being noticed; hell I didn’t even realized the guy had his own site, though I guess it makes sense, doesn’t it?
Now here’s something even I wasn’t expecting; a badass video promo for Fear Fest 2, running March 7th-9h in Dallas, TX! Thanks to the guys and gals at (5)aint Productions for putting it together. The promo will be airing on CW 33 and Fox 4 from now until March so Dallas locals keep your eyeballs peeled! Hit the official Fear Fest site for all the nitty gritty!
Well, there’s neither art nor specs for it yet, but if Amazon is to be trusted (and why would they lie to us?), at least the DVD release for The Mist (review) has a date; March 25th, 2008 (pre-order it here).
Here’s a cool way to start off 2008; win a viewer’s choice of best video of the year. No, it hasn’t happened for Viper Rash yet, but it did happen for Mushroomhead; specifically their video for “12 Hundred” has won Headbanger’s Ball “Best Video of the Year”!
