Been wondering about the status of the Spierig Brothers' forever-in-the making vampire film Daybreakers? Even remember anything about it at this point? I can’t say I’d blame you if you answer “no” to the first because of a “yes” to the second.
Ah ha! Finally it has happened -- the inevitable casting of Burton regular Helena Bonham Carter in his latest film, Alice in Wonderland. I knew I should’ve gone to Vegas to get a bet on the timing of this announcement; I could be a very rich man right now.
It’s about goddamn time someone tried to get werewolves back on primetime TV. Sure there have been some shows since “Werewolf: The Series” that have made minimal effort, but it sounds like Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty’s Fox show “Bitches” will be the one we’ve been waiting for.
Word ran down the pike today that the Adam Gierasch (interview) retelling of 1988's Night of the Demons has just started principal photography in haunted old New Orleans.
Halloween's just around the corner so guess what that means? It's time to give away some really spooky swag!

Then we have the new opus from Legion of the Dead director and German effects maestro, Olaf Ittenbach, Legend of Hell.

We've mentioned this before, but for anyone who has missed our previous stories, the auditions for Miss Horrorfest III will be happening this Thursday!
A press release rolled in today with some rather odd news regarding Hack/Slash's current storyline involving Herbert West, the Re-Animator. It seems a newly formed company called Re-Animator LLC has filed a Cease and Desist letter with the comic's distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors.
All right, we’re now only one film away from having the complete 8 Films to Die For list for 2009! After Dark Films announced today that the Aussie horror flick Dying Breed (review) and Adam Gierasch’s directorial debut Autopsy have joined the Horrorfest 2009 lineup.
Killer pigs ... Killer pig people ... What exactly set off this current trend of hogsploitation flicks going on in horror cinema right now? Prowling the American Film Market website, I stumbled upon info about yet another pig-themed horror flick that had previously slipped below my radar: Squeal.
Does anyone out there remember a little New Zealand horror film called The Ugly? It was one of those low-key flicks that came around direct to DVD here in the States just over a decade ago and got a good amount of buzz for its time. Well, if you have fond memories of it, The Ugly’s director, Scott Reynolds, is getting ready to make his first film since 2001, which also happens to be the first in a new South Korea/New Zealand co-production treaty.
Some more casting is close to happening on the Ruben Fleischer horror/comedy Zombieland, which you may recall is set to star Woody Harrelson as half of a pair of survivors of a zombie apocalypse who finds “friendship and redemption” in the new world order, according to THR.

For the past several weeks we have gotten a lot of laughs from Adam and Joe thanks to their Road to FrightFest short films. Unfortunately, this good time has ended in tragedy ...
I freely admit to having only seen a few minutes of CBS's "Forever Night"-ish vampire detective series "Moonlight" and coming away quite unimpressed.
