Horror Masters Go Comedic for Xbox 360

This is why I love having an Xbox 360 and have yet to see the point in the PS3 aside from its use as a Blu-ray player. Variety got word this morning that this fall a series of short films under the banner “Horror Directors Do Comedy” will show up on the console free of charge. The cool thing?

Summit Adds The Leaves to Slate

Imagine if you were traveling for a friend’s funeral, already a somber event to say the least, and you just happened to come across a fortune teller who not only identified you as evil, but fingered you as the bringer of the apocalypse.

Whedon's Dollhouse to Air Out of Order

In a very strange twist of events, Joss Whedon has decided that his newest show for Fox, “Dollhouse”, will air out of sequence. Fans of the man’s work may recall this was one of the many contributing factors to the quick death of “Firefly”, only this time it’s not because of studio interference.

Fall Horror DVD-Palooza!

There's a frightening number of fall horror DVDs coming out the closer we get to Halloween. I've compiled a sampling in no particular order of just some of the many, many new releases coming soon to a DVD shelf near you in September and October.

Stuck, Seed, Feast & More DVD Dates!

Wow, today was a gluttonous day for horror DVD announcements, it seems. Rather than bore you with my, admittedly formidable, writing I’ll just provide you with an easy-to-read list, ordered chronologically. Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Then we will begin.

New UK Bloodsucker Flick Blood and Roses

We were just directed to a new film being made right now in the UK by first-time director Simon Aitken called Blood and Roses. It’s significant to us because one of our favorite journalists/actresses is in it: Axelle Carolyn. She’s been taking bit parts in more and more movies as of late, and it’s always great to see her on screen.

First Look at Marvel's The Stand!

Personally I can’t wait to see how Marvel does with its upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s seminal apocalypse novel The Stand. Just the excuse to read it again is enough for me. AICN managed to get its hands on the first art for the book, and needless to say I’m impressed. They promise to have more tomorrow so make sure you hit ‘em up again to see the rest!

Cassie Hack Vs. Herbert West Panels!

We just got a heads up that Comic Book Resources posted a whole slew of panel artwork from the upcoming Re-Animator / Hack/Slash crossover that’s due out in a few months. Click on the teaser image below to see all the panels (you’ll have to scroll almost to the bottom of the page). We’ll have more on the Devil's Due crossover as its debut approaches!

Magnolia Off to Sleepaway Camp?

Fangoria reported yesterday that Magnolia Pictures, the guys who put out The Signal, Shrooms and the original Pulse to name a few, has nabbed the release rights for Return to Sleepaway Camp.
