Ha-ha, vindication! I demanded more Blood Drive posters from Lionsgate this year, and they cowered at my might, churning out not just another poster, but a badass poster to boot! You mess with the Butane, you get the horns, friends!
While most of the world had its eyes on Beijing and the Olympics this past week, DC's intrepid reporters Butane, Syxx, Foy, UC, and yours truly have been scouring the globe for genre news and views to send your way. Although I'm not following the Games much myself, I thought for this August 9-15, 2008, Weekly Wrap-Up, I'd join the fray and employ an international theme focusing on projects outside the good ol' US of A.
News flash! Teenage girls all over America have been shitting themselves with anticipation over the big screen adaptation of the phenomenon known as Twilight! As a means to quell the messy epidemic, Warner Brothers has bumped up the release date for the Catherine Hardwicke film to November 21, 2008, instead of in December as originally planned.
If you've ever played Halo online, you'll know just how annoying some hardcore gamers can be. Oh, how sweet of an untapped market this is for the slasher subgenre! No, I am not counting Stay Alive as gaming horror because that film was just an insult to anyone who has ever picked up a controller...
Are you a veteran of the video game franchise F.E.A.R.? Then you know all about the intensely violent combat, thick and rich atmosphere, mind-bending levels, and the blood lust of a little devil known as Alma.
Heard from the good folks over at Warner Home Video today that the DVD and Blu-ray releases of both Rest Stop and Rest Stop: Don't Look Back have been moved up a week to September 30th.
Ah, Vampires. There have been so many good movies that featured everyone's favorite "pulse smoking fashion victims" (bonus points for anyone who can name where that quote came from). From the silent era of film to the teen sensation that is Twilight, it seems as if audiences just can't get enough of them. Ever wonder what the fascination is? On September 23rd you'll be able to examine the facts!
We got an e-mail from Dr. Uwe Boll today (seriously) with a brand-new trailer for his next video game adaptation, Far Cry. Of course, I didn’t realize it was all in German until it was uploaded, but that just makes it more fun!
Those evil bastards over at Fangoria took a trip to the wilds of Michigan recently to check out the set of Andrew van den Houten’s Offspring, the latest Jack Ketchum adaptation to be filmed. As you can see the film is looking just as gory as we had hoped ... and then some!
Just got a heads up from the folks at Sony Pictures that the official site for John Dowdle’s (interview) Quarantine has officially opened! Click here or on the poster below to start exploring the home for this remake of Spanish horror hit REC!
Ah, the religious freaks nuts out there, making life difficult for everyone. Always causing wars and making neighbors turn against one another. The ambitious Pastor Jake is taking it all one step further and bringing an apocalyptic demon horde back from the dead with him. Now that's forward thinking!
UPDATE: The press conference with the hunters has now been uploaded to YouTube. Check it out below! You’ve probably heard about this by now, but what the hell; it’s a slow news day anyway, right? Right.
Lionsgate has put out word of a new horror DVD release titled Chill they have scheduled for November 4th, because what better time to release a new horror movie than five days after Halloween?
Oh, what the hell, we haven’t done an Evil Dead 4 story in a while, have we? Luckily The Chin got to jawing with MTV’s Movie Blog recently on that very subject, which gives us something to talk about.
Not content to rest on his directorial laurels, David (Hard Candy, 30 Days of Night) Slade has created something called Fubear that has definitely piqued my interest … and probably will yours, too.
