Those of you in L.A. already know how cool the New Beverly Cinema is thanks to their ongoing series of badass double bills. But come December their badassness will be kicking up a notch thanks to some help from across the pond.
Sean Connery’s son Jason is getting behind the camera for a flick that has such a ridiculous cast I would almost say it was a joke if I hadn’t read it in The Hollywood Reporter.
All right, so it’s a Dark Castle kind of morning, I guess. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that John Cusack just signed on for the psychological thriller (never want to confuse those with “horror” movies, folks) The Factory for Joel Silver’s production shingle.
What is the trend with evil children movies these days? None of the ones I’ve seen/heard of have been made with the same creepiness that made the subgenre cool in the first place, but someone out there will get it right again I’m sure. I doubt, however, that someone is Dark Castle.
Honestly, traveling to Utah has never crossed my mind for any reason. It's just hard to have a passing thought of, "Hey! I should go to Utah because..." That was until STYD released a list of 11 horror and thriller movies that will be shown at next year's Sundance Film Festival.
A few weeks back you might recall that we gave you the first heads up on a new werewolf film on the horizon called Howl (“Fever Pitch Ready to Howl” – November 2007).
I really don’t get it; out of nowhere comes this film Timber Falls, one of the most un-horror sounding tittles I’ve heard in a while, and it’s getting itself its very own theatrical release, albeit in a limited capacity.
A few weeks back I told you about my visit to the set of Plague Town, the first film from DVD featurette creator extraordinaire David Gregory (“Plague Town Set Visit Preview!” – October 2007).
No sooner has the announcement been made that George Romero was producing a new horror anthology series, Deadtime Stories (“Romero’s New Deadtime Stories” – November 2007), than we get word that the flick has already started filming in and around Fayette County, Pennsylvania!
Just the other day it was announced that Cold Prey, the world’s first Norwegian snowboarding slasher film, was finally seeing a release here in the States (“U.S. Release for Cold Prey” – November 2007), and already a sequel is in the works.
Icons of Fright made me smile today. In a recently interview with 2001 Maniacs (review) director Tim Sullivan they got him to spill the beans regarding a sequel and a re-release of the first one ... with some major changes:
I've yet to see SAW IV (review) and it is still in a few theatres, but that isn't stopping Lionsgate from getting the buzz out in regards to the DVD.
Our Fear Fest cohorts over at Pit of Horror are readying up for a winter slay ride with their holiday themed Friday Night Frights. This time around you can catch Romero's original Dawn of the Dead on December 14th and Silent Night, Deadly Night on the 21st. The doors of Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville, TX open at 7:30PM and the flicks begin at 8:00PM.
When you've stuck a man unjustly in jail, it's best not to let him open up a barber shop once released. He couldn't possibly hold a grudge or two ... could he? That's just the case in the upcoming Tim Burton and Johnny Depp musical Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
