Mezco Toyz revealed to us today the upcoming figures for their Cinema of Fear line of toys and plushes! Here's what to expect in stores this October:
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).
I would love to see a company like Blue Sky Studios do something other than kids’ animation, though obviously that’s where the money is, so when I read the rumor about them nabbing rights to small press book The Anubis Tapestry, I just had to share.
What strikes me most funny about this article is the reference in the very first line to “the booming horror genre”. Like horror’s never made money before? Like it’s this newly discovered method of getting a lot for a little?
It's been a while since a studio's really gotten behind an alien invasion film (Cloverfield doesn’t count since it was JJ Abrams and we have no idea where it came from), but The Hollywood Reporter got word this morning of a script called Battle: Los Angeles that Columbia has optioned.
Just like our extensive and exhausting (on our side, at least) coverage from last year (read it all right here), we’re compiling as much info as we can for the horror offerings at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, going down in NYC this April 23rd – May 4th!
The film that really should have been a part of last year's After Dark's 8 Films to Die For, Frontier(s), is still going to get its chance to shine here in the States with an uncut theatrical run on May 9th and landing on DVD May 13th.
I may be in the minority here, but I found Michael Katleman's Primeval (review) to be a good time at the B-Movies. It wasn't perfect, but it had amazing visual effects for the crocodile and some moments of unintentional hilarity. Getting to watch it with the director added to the good times as well.
Legendary - and extremely eclectic - director Albert Pyun dropped us a line last night to let us know that on May 5th he'll start shooting Tales of an Ancient Empire, his long-awaited follow-up to the movie he's best known for: The Sword and the Sorcerer.
Many of us have been wondering how Quarantine, the U.S. remake of REC (review), is going to compare to its original. We know a few things have changed in regard to the "infection", but what about how the movie is shot? Well, thanks to DC reader Germboy, we have some answers.
Remember Paddy Breathnach’s Red Mist, his enigmatic follow up to Shrooms (DVD review)? It was announced in passing a few times, but to date nothing official has been given out as to what it’s actually about.
I know most of you reading this who want to see Hideo Nakata’s L: Change the World, the sequel to the Death Note movies, will want to kick me for this, but what can you do? It’s Asian, damnit; I can't help where it chooses to play next...
During a quick visit over to the place where film conversations go to die (IMDB), I saw that last year's motel horror pic Vacancy (review) is receiving a second serving.
Dario Argento's Mother of Tears (review) will be getting a limited theatrical release starting June 6th, 2008, but don't expect it to show up in every state!
