There’s a lot to be afraid of in the world of horror. Vampires, werewolves, and undead monsters are just the tip of the iceberg; mad cannibalistic killers, rage churning viruses, and behemoths from the deep help keep up the mass. Talk of these things can be found throughout the internet in the vast plethora of horror discussion boards. Not yet mentioned among these fear-inducing monstrosities is one diseased abomination that always sparks up a fuss.
Hammer’s return to horror, Beyond the Rave, is set to premiere on MySpace this Friday, April 17th. It will be shown in small blocks over the course of the rest of the month on MySpace exclusively, so be sure to give it a shot cause it could be a lot of fun...
Can you believe it’s been 25 years since John Landis created what is arguably the best music video ever made, Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”? I know, most of you weren’t even alive when it first showed up on MTV, but trust me; it was a big deal.
It could be one of the best titles in movie history: Satan Hates You, a project that’s been in one stage of production or another for almost four years now. We’ve seen it around here and there, but not until reader “Aaron” dropped us a line telling us to check it out, did I make an effort to really look into it. Glad I did!
On the right you can check out a very cool T-shirt design for Marc Lougee’s “The Pit and the Pendulum” (review), the first stop-motion Poe adaptation produced by Ray Harryhausen.

We've just uploaded an exclusive video to the Video Dread which features two scenes from Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo's super sick home invasion flick Inside (DVD review).

Just a few days back we told you guys about the possibility of Toolbox Murders 2, which was apparently being written by Jeffrey Reddick (Day of the Dead redux). The story came from Fangoria, so of course Reddick got in touch with them to set the record straight:
How does one replace the genius that is Vincent Gallo when he leaves your production because he can’t stand to work next to his ex? You bring in another large-nosed actor and hope no one notices! In the case of Dario Argento’s Giallo, said actor is Adrien Brody (King Kong, Splice).
