Trick 'r Treat Direct to DVD?

While I hope this turns out to be just a rumor, unfortunately there’s too much validity in it to ignore. The STYD guys heard from one of their readers today that, since Warner Bros. have no plans to release Mike Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat in theaters, there’s a good chance we’ll only be seeing it on DVD.

The Making of Blood Night!

Just the other day we mentioned Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet for the first time, pointing out that those of you going to Monster Mania this weekend will get a chance to see some very cool stuff from the film.

Video Dread Exclusive: Death Race Cast & Crew

Our man Andrew Kasch sat down with the cast and crew (even our favorite director, Paul W.S. Anderson) of Death Race in order to learn what we can expect from remake and why it was being remade in the first place.

New Friday the 13th Documentary Rolls

Cameras are currently rolling on a new Friday the 13th documentary called His Name Was Jason, which will be airing on Starz in February of 2009, just in time to build the hype for the February 13th release of the new F 13 remake.

New Friday the 13th, Burrowers Imagery

The Toronto International Film Festival is just around the corner, and with it will come one movie that I’ve been looking forward to for the last few years; J.T. Petty’s The Burrowers. Big monsters in the Old West? Yes please!

Unstable Ground Announces Eternal Feature

Just got some good news from the folks at Unstable Ground that a feature film version of their cool vampire short film “Ending the Eternal” is on its way.

Gremlins Attack VOD!

Since we’ve not had a new It Came From the Internet in a while and it’s a slow news day (seems everyone wants to talk about the Poltergeist remake more than anything else), here’s something to both keep you busy for 7 minutes and take your mind off unwanted remakes.

Meth Bikers Vs. Travellers in Exit Speed

Just imagine the scenario; all you want to do is kick back on a nice, quiet bus ride across the vast, dull expanse of Texas, but a gang of meth-addicted bikers just will not let you get some shut eye. What would you do? Well, the ten strangers in Exit Speed don’t have to wait long to find out their reaction to this rather unique situation: They fight back. Trapped in the desert with nothing but crazy bikers surrounding me, I think I’d find a bit of tough guy in me, too.

Mancini Talks Child's Play Reboot

Despite what they say, I just don’t get why the Child’s Play franchise needs a reboot. A new film that picks up where Seed ended could be pretty damn cool if they kept it dark, but at least series creator Don Mancini’s doing it himself.

Boogeyman Scribes to Pen Poltergeist

Poltergeist just cries for a remake, doesn't it? There's no way any of the young kids today can relate to a film without high-def TVs, cellphones and MTV approved actors! Yes, it totally needs an update...

Monster Mania 11 Swag Report

Monster Mania 11 is just around the corner (August 22-24th to be precise) in Cherry Hill, NJ, so it’s time to show you what Dread Central is bringing to the table ... physically more than metaphorically! Every Monster Mania, Dread sets up shop just within the show's entrance to dish out free swag to the attendees from companies cranking out the bloody best and beyond. Here’s what’s on tap...

Blood Night at Monster Mania 11!

I keep hearing about Blood Night: The Legend of Mary Hatchet in that strange way that a film’s title will become implanted in your brain without you really understanding why. So I guess it was inevitable we mention it in these pages, eh?

Fantastic Fest Celebrates the Best Kills

Those of you lucky enough to be heading out to this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX (September 18th-25th), be sure to bring along your absolute favorite gore movie to share with your fellow sickos because the organizers are planning on at least one grue-soaked evening of mayhem!

Full Moon's Sequelmania 2009

We already know how much Charles Band loves puppet terrors. Judging by the new slate of Full Moon films Band has announced for next year, it would seem he loves sequels almost as much.

Warners Goes Deeper, Bluer

I can’t believe we’re sitting here, months later, and still worrying about an actor’s strike. The writer’s strike was bad enough; why do we have to go through this again? Can't Hollywood set aside its differences so Deep Blue Sea 2 can finally be made!?
