A lot of sharks, too many indies and a classic horror/comedy await you come Tuesday, June 3rd, 2008. Behold...
Man, what a strange bit of news this is for a Monday morning; Mel Brooks is working on a serious horror movie.
It's been almost a year since it was first announced that Johnny Depp was working on bringing the 1960's supernatural soap opera "Dark Shadows" to the big screen, and since that announcement all has been very quiet about the project.
I don't get why one would miss out on the chance to play what could be an iconic character in a new franchise just so one could be in a French comedy. So I guess it's good I'm not Charlotte Gainsbourg, eh?
This morning's Variety confirmed a story we threw at you on Friday about a live-action adaptation of Steve Niles' Wake the Dead, peppering in a few more details that deemed it re-newsworthy.
GoochCamper sent these two our way: An oldie but goodie. Many of you have probably seen this clip before but it's too funny not to share.
We've had a good list of authors for our Dreadtime Stories podcast series so far, but really I never expected we'd get one from the one and only Adrienne Barbeau! The former scream queen has turned into a full-fledged author with the publication of her first ficition novel, Vampyres of Hollywood (review), and she was kind enough to record a quick Dreadtime Story for us because, well, we're just that cool!
A while back we gave you your first taste of an ultra-gory new indie being made called A Day of Violence. It looked pretty sick via the stills we pointed you towards but the Cannes promo trailer we just got a link to confirms just how malicious this puppy is.
I'm no fan of Nicolas Cage, everyone who reads the site on a consistent basis knows this, but I am a fan of The Crow and Dark City director Alex Proyas, so I will give him the benefit of the doubt for his latest film, Knowing, which Cage stars in. You gotta take the good with the bad, right?
Universal sent out some more info for Sam Raimi's return to horror, Drag Me to Hell, yesterday, including our first look at the film's official plot. 'Til now all we've known is that it's about a girl trying to break an evil curse. Let's get all official, though:
Hot damn! Zombies are real! At least that's the goal of a site called Lost Zombies. It's a place brimming with video and photographic evidence of the zombie overthrow!
Last year we had the hard job of reporting that genre literary legend Chas. Balun was battling inoperable cancer. There's now more news regarding his condition.
It's hard to deny now that the mind behind 30 Days of Night (review), Steve Niles, will Wake the Dead in some form.
Edgar Frog is going to have his work cut out for him. What are the odds that his newest adventure against Xtreme suckheads is going to garner the same kind of following that the original Lost Boys had? The follow-up does look to have a bit of promise, but without the sax man, it's just not going to be the same.
Just found a couple of new stills and cool behind-the-scenes look at Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors in my inbox, and since Fox has been so cool about sharing info with us on the flick, I thought we’d share ‘em with you guys!
