Growing up in the South, I never saw horror fests or film fests anywhere near me. But nowadays the lucky folks in Louisville, Kentucky, have the Fright Night Film Fest to enjoy.
So, after a series of e-mails sending us in all different directions, we've finally nailed down some facts about the Creepshow: Raw. Yes, Fez and Michael Madsen are still involved, but this time we have some video proof that this wasn't just some gag from Taurus Entertainment.
Been holding out on getting your script, short or feature length film submitted for this year's Screamfest? Then it's time to get your ass in gear because the deadline to have your submission postmarked is TOMORROW, August 15!
If you didn't make it to Fantasia this year and missed out on the screening of Trailer Park of Terror (review), you're not going to have to wait too long to be able to see it in the comfort and security of your home ... or trailer.
While browsing the web for new and strange things, I passed by eBay and saw this complete puppet from Fred Dekker's classic Night of the Creeps!
Imagine, if you will, a mish-mashing of old school crime stories with good old-fashioned Old Ones mythos, stirred together with a dash of the sublime. Can you taste that? If you could, you might end up calling it something like “Nine Lives”
It’s been almost six years since Adam Wingard (Pop Skull) completed work on his directorial debut, the Alabama-set survival horror piece Home Sick. Since then it’s played all over the place in varying degrees of completion before the final, definitive version was shown at last year’s Fantasia Film Festival.
Much like this week’s release of Mirrors, which was based on the Korean film Into the Mirror, Alexandre Aja is insisting that his Piranha 3D remake will not really be a remake at all, but rather a completely original film which just happens to share the same title as Joe Dante’s original.
We last told you about Adam Mason’s The Devil’s Chair (review) when the DVD date for the flick was finally revealed to be October 7th, 2008. Today we were provided a slew of stills from the incredibly gory flick to whet your appetite even further!
Next Tuesday Jeremy Kasten's remake of the H.G. Lewis splatter classic, The Wizard of Gore comes home not only with tons of maniacal violence, but with a genre cast and a half that includes Crispin Glover, Bijou Phillips, Jeffrey Combs, Brad Dourif! So I ask you ... what better way to celebrate than with some stills of the forthcoming bit of mayhem?
Those of you out there who just can’t stand the wait for Alan Ball’s “True Blood”, the vampire show coming to HBO this fall, you’re going to love this; Daily Motion just got a very cool exclusive from the show, a news report that details just how vampires went from being creatures in the shadows to functioning, accepted members of society.
About two years ago we reviewed ultimate Texas Chainsaw Massacre DVD from Dark Sky, and it was good. Everything from the special features all the way down to the transfer kicked some major leathery ass. It was good headcheese for all. But now that we've entered into the Blu-ray era, will Leatherface and the family get their due?
The more I see of Paul Anderson's remake of Death Race 2000, more depressed I get. While we're all for more blood and carnage, this version of DR has no identity of its own. Everything from the cars down to the characters just feel generic. But at least there will be blood...
Magnet Films, the genre branch of Magnolia Pictures, have officially released the theatrical series they’re calling Six Shooter Films, ”six films from the vanguard of quality worldwide genre cinema”.
Those of you with cable (a number I blissfully don’t count myself among) will have a lot to look forward to from IFC in the coming months. An article in Variety today reports that London-based One-Eyed Films has just sold a nine-picture package to IFC containing all the Coffin Joe movies!
