There's been a lot of skepticism towards Silent Hill V (now being called Silent Hill: Homecoming officially), and I have no shame in admitting that some of it came from me. A lot of the screenshots and material slowly seeping out from the developers over at Double Helix (formerly called The Collective) had given grounds for those people naturally skeptical anyway, given that the game was not being made by Team Silent, to feel their fears were founded.
Steven Seagal has been kind of notorious for wanting to avoid appearing in any kind of sci-fi or horror-themed movies. It almost happened a few years back with the Anthony Hickox flick Submerged, but the whole "mutant" aspect got nixed in favor of generic terrorists shortly before shooting began. Not sure why he's so opposed to such a thing. His own daughter starred in three Gamera movies; what makes him think he's so above the fray?
Are you ready for blood? Are you ready for Nazis? Are you ready for ass-tons of nudity and vicious mayhem that hasn't been seen since Ilsa: She Wolf of the SS? Then get ready for Keith Crocker's Blitzkrieg: Escape from Stalag 69.
Our man “Hunter” just gave us another heads up, this time pointing us to Wired Magazine’s blog, which landed itself the first cast pic from Joss Whedon’s “Dollhouse”.
REC (review) directors Jaume Balaguero and Paco Plaza have been asked to once again show the world horrific events through the eyes of a hand-held camera.
We got word today that a new book titled Vampyres of Hollywood is going to be hitting shelves on July 8th. While we don't normally report on books as news stories, this one is an exception since it was written the beautiful and talented Adrienne Barbeau along with fellow author Michael Scott.
Seems that Ghost House Underground is serious about its horror, if the company's initial lineup (which includes the monster horror movie Dark Floors, among others) is any indication, and today they’ve announced two more titles for direct-to-DVD release.
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!
