Dern Tracks a Swamp Devil

When I saw a listing for a new movie called Swamp Devil I just naturally assumed it was going to be a horror flick about some sort of swampy Bigfoot, like the Florida Everglades' Skunk Ape, the Honey Island Swamp Monster of Louisiana, or the Fouke Monster made famous in The Legend of Boggy Creek. Then I finally found a little blurb describing the actual plot and saw the phrase "tree-like creature" describing the featured creature.

AFM: Filmax's Latest!

Three more films from Filmax were announced as part of this year’s AFM, one of them the latest from Romasanta/[REC] helmer Paco Plaza! That film is called Circus, about a family who has a run-in with a very strange troupe of circus performers after one of their tigers almost causes an accident. Pretty soon they discover that the performers have trapped them there with them, and the skills of the troupe are used against those who try and get away with deadly results.

AFM: Magnet Attached to Eden Log

I can’t believe Variety referred to us as "geeks". We’re the ones who make the films successful, could they at least refer to us as "fans"? Sheesh.

Ti West’s well-reviewed follow-up to The Roost, the subtle but effective Trigger Man, has been picked up by Kino International for domestic release, with all foreign rights going to Screen Media Ventures, according to Daily Variety.

P2 Parks Next Week!

Coming from New York and then moving to California, I know a little about being stuck in traffic. Hell, for that matter I know a lot about road rage, but parking in a garage? I've always felt pretty safe. That's all about to change as Franck Khalfoun's thriller P2 hits theatres next Friday, November 9th.

Event Report: Zombie Fest 2007!

I just returned from an awesome weekend, so naturally I had to share. Most anyone who considers themselves to be a horror fan knows the significance of the Monroeville Mall to horror history. It's the place where, nearly thirty years ago, the mall was overrun with hoards of the undead. This year it happened again, setting a new world record, and bringing fans of zombie goodness together for one hell of a time. Pittsburgh’s The It's Alive!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

As the song goes, it’s the most wonderful time of the year... Of course, the song I refer to is about Christmas (ugh), but I’m talking about the only holiday that really matters: HALLOWEEN! Today is the day for ghouls and fiends and demons of all kind to walk the earth, and I would just like to personally thank each and every one of them for their constant inspiration throughout the years!
