Once again the old adage “If you cast Will Smith, they will come” has been proven this weekend; Francis Lawrence’s I Am Legend (review) has pulled in an estimated $76.5 million for its opening weekend, more than pretty much any projections had estimated.
Lordi, Lordi look at this; Those sneaky film-o-philes over at Twitch Film got their clawed and bloodied hands on the full trailer for the horror film Dark Floors, starring the Finnish rock band Lordi!
A whole lot of new DVD info came down via DVD Active and Fangoria over the past few days and instead of giving you one story for each, I figured it’d just make more sense to give it to ya hard and fast. The way you like it, you slut.
It must be a surefire sign that I'm utterly burned out on the entire zombie subgenre because word of two new low budget vampire flicks coming to DVD in February suddenly seems like a breath of fresh air to me. Remember when that was pretty much the other way around? Seems like a long time ago, huh?
As a member of Dread Central's female contingency, I'm always on the lookout for information that might be of special interest to my sisters in horror, and today we got the news from Pretty-Scary that it's time to vote for the 2007 Scary Stud of the Year!
We first told you about Ryan Schifrin's upcoming horror comic, SPOOKS, a couple of days ago (Ryan Schifrin Talks Spooks -- Tue, 12/11/2007) and already Ryan was kind enough to give us an early look at a couple of pages of gruesome goodness!
Adam Green, the creative force behind one of this year's brightest horror spots, Hatchet, is set to bring another film to the big screen in 2008 and this time -- the MPAA isn't hammering him with all manner of ridiculousness!
Ever since we started talking about the latest bit of ghostly cinéma vérité, Paranormal Activity (review here) on Dread Central you've all been asking, "Where can I see it?" Well if you plan on heading to next year's Slamdance film festival you're more than in luck!

Raw Feed keeps cranking out the horror films and even if they are direct to DVD, that doesn’t mean they have to be any less cool.
Perhaps you recall a film we told you about a while back called Trance (“Rodionoff Directs a Trance” – October 2007)? If not, no worries cause there wasn’t a whole helluva lot of info on it anyway.
Before Darren Lynn Bousman got behind the camera to make Repo! The Genetic Opera a reality, he made a short film with some friends on the weekend to prove how good it could be. Since there are some legal SAG issues with posting the entire short, he recently updated his MySpace page with the good news that you can, at least, check out how the short opened. And it’s animated! Dig it below!
Just a quick reminder to all you Texans; Friday Night Frights is making its return to the Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville, TX.

Doors open at 9 and the show starts at 9:30. You’ll even get a free DVD with paid admission!
The good folks at MGM just provided Dread Central with two exclusive pics from the upcoming cinema verite film The Poughkeepsie Tapes, directed by John Dowdle, one of which is to your right, the other slightly below.
I have to say I actually kind of dig this poster; it doesn’t go where I would have expected it to and in this day and age, that’s really all I can ask for, I guess. STYD got the first look at the Prom Night redux poster, a little slice of which is below; smack it with your mouse to see the whole thing. Nelson McCormick directed the remake, which follows a young girl on the run from a serial killer who's killing all her friends on the titular magical evening.
