Is it a good idea to hand over the Mummy franchise to a director known mainly for his movies about fast cars? We shall find out when The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor hits on August 1st, 2008. But now we can have a taste…
A few weeks back myself and some of the East Coast Dread crew, including Nomad and the fantastic Heather Buckley, hit up the New York Comic Con to get our horror mugs filled to the brim with info. A lot of video came out of it, most of which features Heather chatting up horror celebs and asking some damn fine questions, but today we’re showing off our first finished piece: a chat with the writer and director of the upcoming animated film Igor!
It’s been quite a while since we’ve mentioned anything about The Thaw to you guys, so long you may have forgotten what it’s about altogether, but that’s all right cause it’s time to refresh the memory and really start getting excited for it since things are moving forward on it quickly.
A batch of horror movies we’ve not heard much about lately have recently acquired composers; instead of writing one story after another about them, I thought it’d make sense to give ‘em to you all at once. That's how much I care, you see.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m really looking forward to seeing what M. Night Shyamalan has in store for us when The Happening is released on Friday, June 13th. For once the ambiguous trailering in which you’re told pretty much nothing is actually working in the film’s favor, at least for me.
How cool is it to see Joe Dante’s name in the trades for two days in a row? Very cool, that’s how! Yesterday we told you he’d be directing the new film from Masters of Horror writers Drew McWeeny and Scott Swan, Bat out of Hell; today he was officially attached to another outstanding horror project, The Hole.
So we've been away for a while. "Why?" you ask. There just hasn't been very much to talk about. I mean honestly, Prom Night? Who cares? "Moonlight" getting canceled? Big deal! Frustrated, we went on a soul searching retreat in Guam. Now that we have once again regained our chi, we're back with a vengeance!
In an interesting move both for network television and viewers in general, Fox announced today that they will be trying a new experiment with two of next season’s more promising shows; the JJ Abrams-creatred “Fringe” and Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”. Namely, less commercials!
In some heartbreaking news Tyrese Gibson is no longer associated with the upcoming zombie opus Condition Dead. But fear not, weeping readers, the production is moving ahead without him!
Well, this is a bit unexpected; for the first time since its inception, After Dark Films will be featuring a sequel as one of this year’s 8 Films to Die For. Some may question the validity of said sequel, but there is a good chance of it getting butts in seats.
Those spooky boys over at Fangoria got the first look at the DVD art for Greg McLean’s Rogue, his follow-up to Wolf Creek that, despite positive word of mouth, has been doomed to coming in way under the radar, as well as the features that will be on the disc when Dimension Extreme releases it on August 5th.
We just got our hands on not one, but two, clips from the Paul Andrew Williams (interview) film The Cottage (DVD review), which is out on DVD right now! The first features one of the wanna-be kidnappers trying to intimidate their hostage, who’s just not having it. The other is the first appearance, to this character at least, of a hideously deformed monstrosity, which makes him scream like a bitch.
Man, nothing irks me more than waiting and waiting to see the DVD art for a movie I’m looking forward to, only for it to just be the theatrical poster. So many good images from Doomsday and they just had to go with this again, eh?
Talk about a match made in Hell; Werner Herzog is getting ready to direct a new “horror-tinged” drama with David Lynch on board to executive produce, according to Yahoo! Movies.
