Zombies are great and all, but watching them tear apart able-bodied people gets a little old sometimes. In some respects it's far more fun to watch survivors fight back ... especially if those among the living are hot, sexy and naughty schoolgirls.
Why wait around for studios to get their collective acts together and adapt one of your favorite author's stories? Canadian filmmaker Mathieu Ratthe sure didn't.
If you've been thinking about attending the 2008 Twin Peaks Festival, a bit of news that crossed our desk might help make that decision easier. Piper Laurie will be joining the festivities this year for the first time!
We just got word in that SFX legend Tom Savini will be directing a flick called Voracious. The cast is said to be populated by familiar horror faces Tiffany Shepis, Debbie Rochon and Michael Berryman (who is currently unsigned but in talks).
If you're lucky enough to be going to the San Diego Comic Con this year, you'll get to see footage from the upcoming Resident Evil CGI flick Degeneration. The rest of us will just have to make do with a website and trailer.
STYD reports that the MPAA has ruled on a rating for J.T. Petty's Western creature feature The Burrowers. I am happy to say that the pic has received the coveted "Restricted" rating! Now, the only issue is that Lionsgate still has not announced a release date or even the year in which we can see The Burrowers. What the hell?

The crew of the UK indie zombie flick Within the Woods drew our attention to their project today with a trailer and some "making of" videos. Can our pals from across the pond succeed where so many American indie filmmakers have failed?
Saw V ... who knew we'd actually see so many sequels to a small and twisted horror film that surfaced back in 2004? In the sequels that followed, we've seen a real split between horror fans who like and dislike the franchise. Will the fourth sequel bring them together in happy harmony?
For a while now you’ve been reading about Red here on Dread Central, and finally as its release date approaches, we’re getting more and more to talk about. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out our Red review from Fantasia, which will hopefully make you look forward to it even more.

I guess it’s not really a helluva lot of information, but it could be enough to ruin your morning if you’re not careful. Rob Cohen caught up with the B-D boys recently to chat about his latest film, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and dropped some potentially disturbing news about the 1987 classic The Monster Squad.
The director of Horror and Satan’s Playground is on his way back with a brand new horror film called Torture Chamber. Moviehole found a casting announcement for it in Backstage Magazine and was kind enough to throw up the film’s synopsis. Dig:
