It seems like it’s been a long time since we had a good creature feature, no? I really can’t remember the last one, but then I’ve only had one cup of coffee so far ... Twitch Film got word of a new monster movie coming from New Zealand that definitely sounds like it’s worth keeping one eye on.
It’s that time of year again; if you’ve been sitting on your genre film waiting to find the best film festival to submit it to, it’s time to get your ass in gear! Toronto After Dark’s call for entries closes tomorrow, Friday, June 20th!
The official site for one of our favorite conventions on the East Coast, Rock and Shock (we can’t have just one favorite, sorry), just updated with the first confirmed guests for the 2008 show, which goes down October 10th-12th in Worcester, MA.
I'll admit that I've yet to see Alex Orr's Blood Car (review). However, seeing as how gas prices may soon drive some to murder, now would be a good time to watch it.
Honestly, a lot of us aren't all that sure. Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) already has a good amount of positive press, so why is information on the release date being kept quiet by Lionsgate and director Darren Bousman?
Fame is the name of the game, boys and girls. Well, this one is just for the women out there who want a crack at the big time without all the hard work of having to climb the Hollywood ladder.
While I’m sure you’re all eager to check out the first pics from John Landis’ Fear Itself entry, “In Sickness and In Health”, scripted by Jeepers Creepers creator Victor Salva, some far more interesting news was found in the story over on Fangoria that features them...
We all know a remake of Brian DePalma’s The Fury is in the works. To make sure we’re kept on our toes, though, we got an e-mail today regarding an Aussie movie being made that’s also going under the title The Fury.I gotta say this one sounds more interesting than yet another remake…
The folks over at DVD Active got a look at the disc art for the next title in Warner Bros.’ Raw Feed line, Rest Stop: Don’t Look Back.
You hated it, we hated it, and now we can all come together and celebrate the badness that was The Happening (review) the only way we know how; with our throats! Wait, that sounds wrong...
The other day we got an e-mail from a fan by the name of “Meat Lover” (doubtful that’s his Christian name…) with a call to rally behind Midnight Meat Train (review) in the hopes that Lionsgate will listen to the fans, for once, and give it a bigger release than its planned 100 theater dumping.
Our man Hunter just pointed out that director Rob Cohen’s updated his ongoing Mummy 3 blog with a status on the film, which is due to hit theaters August 1st. Believe it or not, everything has to be done on the film, at least on his end by July 3rd, but it’s not quite there yet.
Uni has snapped up the rights to the Oni Press graphic novel series The Last Call, with Barry Josephson on board to produce the film version, according to Variety.
You have just got to love the convention circuit. There's so much to do, so much to see, and so much cool shit to buy it's usually our wallets that end up in agony. My credit cards are still burning from the days of Chiller gone by!
