Last week we showed you a new poster from and gave you the first details on Howl, a new werewolf horror/comedy being produced by Moviehole owner Clint Morris ("Exclusive Update on Werewolf Movie Howl!" - November 2007).
So most recently we told you about the books we’d soon be stocking from Leisure in Evilshop, but what about those of you who want something a bit more ... interactive? Rejoice!
All right, so putting Rob Zombie’s Halloween behind us is what most horror fans really want to do, right? Right. Devil’s Due Publishing has decided to help with Halloween: Nightdance, a brand-new story taken from Carpenter’s original world. In Halloween: Nightdance, a young girl named Lisa discovers that a horrible secret from her past, more than likely Michael Myers, has resurfaced and is leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.
This moring, Daily Variety reports that Trancas International Films, the production house behind almost all the Halloween films including the recent remake, have chosen newbie director Adam Finberg to helm Hurt, from a script by Anthony Grieco (no relation to Richard) and Jeff Drongowski, marking the duo's first script sale.
The German-French Film Funding Commission has granted a nice chunk of change to Irreversible director Gaspar Noe for his long-awaited feature Enter the Void; $700K according to Variety.
It’s been a very long time since we’ve heard anything about the low-budget horror/sci-fi flick The Men Who Fell, which had made us all stand up and take notice when it was being made for how simply badass it looked considering it’s lack of funds.
I guess if something works good for you once, as it did with Joe Lynch and Wrong Turn 2, there’s nothing wrong with thinking it might work again. So how’s about a Wrong Turn 3, Joe?
While news may have slowed down with the holidays rolling in, that doesn't mean there aren't cool things going on in the horror genre, take Season of the Witch for instance. The book, penned by Natasha Mostert, has a interesting synopsis:
Way back in May I ran a story about a horror film starring Jennifer Tilly and Judd Nelson ("Take Care Of Tilly – May 2007"). Since then there hasn't been a peep.
Following up on the news about Howl we shared with you yesterday (“Exclusive Update on Werewolf Movie Howl!” – November 2007), producer Clint Morris just threw us a batch of stills from another horror movie he’s behind, the supernatural western Between the Sand and the Sky.
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.
