51 Worst Horror Movie Cliches

If spending a lifetime watching horror films has taught us anything, it's the basic tools for survival that would apply to just about any kind of hellish situation. The only problem is the writers of our favorite flicks see fit to just have characters fall into the same kinds of pitfalls over and over. You know them well, but just in case Dread Central is proud(?) to present the ...

Swiss Model Stars in new Hickox Film Catwalk!

First Look at Argento's Giallo

I gotta give it to the man; even though is recent output may not be up to par with his classics, Dario Argento shows absolutely no signs of being done with movie making anytime soon. Hell, if anything else he seems to be making them faster now!

Zine Review: Rue Morgue #78

Issue #78 May 2008 The focus in this month’s Rue Morgue is something we’ve been trying to do a Dinner for Fiends about for the last month or so; the new wave of French horror. Sadly, there’s not a helluva lot to talk about since there are only a handful of movies that are making up this new trend, but it’s nice to see them put it in the forefront for the fans.

First Impressions of Silent Hill 5

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.

Steven Seagal has been kind of notorious for wanting to avoid appearing in any kind of sci-fi or horror-themed movies.
