Dinner for Fiends: Two Years of Dread!

As some of you may be aware, tomorrow (July 4th, 2008) is Dread Central’s two-year anniversary online as our own independent, ass kicking, horror loving, monster hugging entity. And we thought it only appropriate that we celebrate with a special stroke-filled Dinner for Fiends!

Satan Hates You Wraps!

Great news, Satan fans! James Felix McKenney just dropped us a line with the news that his fourth feature, Satan Hates You, is officially in the can! The film’s been in various stages of production for a long time now, so I’m sure the crew at MonsterPants Movies and Glass Eye Pix are breathing a sigh of relief today!

New Cirque, Wolf Man Images

The Brits over at Empire Magazine managed to get their hands on the first production still from Cirque du Freak, the novel adaptation helmed by Paul Weitz and starring John C. Reilly, among others.

Goon Punching His Way to Theaters

Now this just makes me smile; THR got word this morning that Dark Horse, David Fincher and Blur Entertainment are joining forces to bring Eric Powell’s The Goon to the big screen as a CG-anmiated film. And damnit, I love The Goon.

Lost Metropolis Footage Found!

Back when Fritz Lang released what many consider to be his masterpiece, Metropolis, in 1927, it did so badly that the investors decided to cut out about 25% of the film and re-release it. Believe it or not, it actually did better (showing producers sometimes might know what the audience wants), but the cut footage has been thought lost ever since.

Elvira's Mistress Movie Special Screening!

I may have only been eight years old when Elvira, Mistress of the Dark arrived at the local cinema, but that movie forever changed me. From that point on I knew I would grow up to lust after black-haired women with large breasts. The American Dream right there!

Repo! Gets Date and Trailer Returns

Last week the new trailer for Repo! appeared and disappeared from the Net pretty quickly, but it has reappeared over at the Repo! site in much higher quality than its YouTube counterpart.

Keep Busy with Hellboy's Website

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (review) isn't going to disappoint, that's for sure, and by the looks of things, the film's official site isn't letting down visitors either.

Kilmer, Balfour Join Sliver Cord

I don’t know just how “horror” this is going to be, but it does have to do with resurrection and out of body experiences, and it’s a love story, which is just terrifying in the first place, so stick with me. The flick is called Silver Cord, and it’s set to be the directorial debut of James Ordonez.

Sarah Landon & The Paranormal DVD

I wanted to title this article "SARAH LANDON AND THE DVD OF THE MOVIE MOST OF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF" but that was a little too long.

Updated Fear Itself Schedule!

We just got an updated airdate schedule for Fear Itself, NBC’s anthology horror series that continues this Thursday at 10/9 C with Stuart Gordon’s “Eater” (review). Check it out below!

Cover Mirrors with Red Bands

No, it's not that ridiculous plot device from Pulse. We're talking about a brand new red-band trailer for Alexandre Aja's Mirrors starring Kiefer Sutherland.

Petty Talks Burrowers

During the recent Weekend of Horrors in Secaucus, NJ (read the full report here), I finally got the chance to meet Soft for Digging and Mimic: Sentinel director JT Petty, whose work I’ve been a huge fan of for years. He was there to promote his next film, The Burrowers, a monster movie we’ve been keeping tabs on since its initial announcement.

Chucky's 20th Birthday Edition Art Arrives!

STYD received the cover art for what is now known as Child's Play: Chucky's 20th Birthday Edition. We were expecting something with a little more zazz. Remember the Child's Play collection that came out a couple of years ago? How about something creepy like that? Jazz it up with a buttload of zazz.

Wii Whips it With Castlevania

How the Nintendo Wii remains such a dominant force in the gaming community is beyond me. If you look down the line of games, there's a pretty good track record of party games, Mario-centric titles and some glorified Gamecube ports. How about we get something that will actually feel like it was meant for the Wii?
