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?

I usually don’t give a hell about anything having to do with more Sleepaway Camp movies, but this was just too weird to ignore. 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.

Sexy True Blood Poster

Yes, there's more to this poster for the upcoming vampire series “True Blood”, but what more do you really need to see? Sexy lips, sexy tongue, just the right amount of plasma ... yep, that’s good enough for me.

It's Offical: The Asylum is Evil

Yes, Evil is a new movie from The Asylum. Please don't click away just yet. Hear me out for a second. This one is actually worth your time to take a look at. In a good way, I mean. Seriously, the trailer is actually worth watching.

Time Warner Adds FEARnet

Good news for those of you out there with Time Warner cable who complain regularly about not being able to see free horror movies; Variety reports that FEARnet has just inked a deal with Time Warner, which will see their on-demand horror programming heading into an additional 8.4 millions homes.

Benderspink Readies Zombies of Mass Destruction

I’ve always said one sure way we could get out of this conflict in the Middle East is if we could somehow send over a squad of zombies to take care of our enemies. The creators of the comic ZMD: Zombies of Mass Destruction agree with me, as do the folks at Benderspink, who’ve just nabbed the movie rights for the Red 5 comic according to Variety.

Battlestar Director to Helm Witchblade

Though I’ve yet to see a single episode of “Battlestar Galactica” (ducks), the show is so revered by people whose opinions I respect that I’m sure this is good news for the new Witchblade movie.

Shyamalan to Produce Night Chronicles

M. Night Shyamalan isn’t fully stepping out from behind his ego yet, but this is a step in the right direction. Variety announced this morning that the man who made The Happening and has yet to apologize for it has inked a deal with Media Capitol Rights to produce a thriller per year under a banner known as The Night Chronicles.

Korea Teases with Midnight Meat

A sharp eyed reader named David pointed out a new video floating around on YouTube. Originally discovered by 24fps, this is the opening scene of Clive Barker's Midnight Meat Train (review), which gives us a look at the suspense so many will miss out on due to the film's impending limited release.

Twilight Teaser #2 & New Stills

I am not sure of the actual ratio of our female-to-male readers, but I am going to risk it and say we have at least 5 women who read the site. The lowball number is based strictly on the lack of Twilight fan fiction on our forums.

Mirrors, It's Jaw-Ripping Fun!

This has to be the coolest picture I've ever had the honor of posting on Dread Central.

The Asylum of Horrors Preview Available!

We got word today from Asylum Press about a new horror anthology entitled The Asylum of Horrors that is being released in September, 2008.

Fantasia 2008: Day 21

Well, another year of Fantasia has come to an end. The wife and I are headed home today and back to our “normal” lives, which believe it or not is actually something I’m looking forward to.
