Dinner for Fiends Gets Signalized!

Another Dinner for Fiends in the can and I gotta tell you ahead of time, folks; since we’re discussing The Signal (review) it’s only fitting we all get a bit crazy at the end. It doesn’t help that Signal star A.J. Bowen (Lewis) joined us and only encouraged some of our worst tendencies.

Hot Toys Gets Alien License!

I'd wager that even in space you'd be able to hear us Alien fans screaming for action figures based off the film. Every once in a while we'll get a Kubrick or other assorted xenomorph reproductions, but what about the Nostromo crew? Where's Kane? Or Dallas?

Rue Morgue Goes to Mulberry Street

I love Mulberry Street. I’ve never tried to hide that love, especially when it was accepted as one of the films in last year’s Horrorfest and ended up being the highlight of the whole fest. So I’m terribly happy that Rue Morgue decided to put it on the cover of their latest issue!

New Doomsday Clip and Pics

March 14, 2008. Mark it on your calendar. That's the day Neil Marshall's Doomsday will be hitting theatres across the U.S. and by the looks of the clip we found over at Yahoo, it's gonna be a fun ride.

New Edges of Darkness Trailer

Jason Horton's zombie/vampire anthology has been one of the indie films I've been looking forward to for some time now. Recently we informed you that the picture is now ready to roll out to distributors (“Edges of Darkness Complete!” – February 2008) and now a new trailer has been created as well! Check it out below.

Trailer for Open Graves

I hate to say it, but I’ve never heard of Open Graves before today. No, not Open Grave, the Eduardo Sanchez movie we’re still waiting for an update on, but Open Graves, plural, which stars Mike Vogel (Cloverfield) and Eliza Dushku (Wrong Turn). The film marks the directorial debut of Álvaro de Armiñán, who served second AD duties on Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Intacto.

Another Ruins Poster

Hey look! Another poster for Carter Smith’s The Ruins! This one comes from the good old boys at the IMP Awards and, as you can tell, it’s a slight variation on one of the previous posters (this time the girl is screaming). I gotta say I like this one best so far ... now we just have to hope the movie's good! The Ruins opens everywhere on April 4th!

One Missed DVD

Finally, the news you’ve all been waiting for: Warner Home Entertainment has settled on an April 22nd, 2008 DVD release date for One Missed Call (review), one of the most hated movies in the hallowed halls of Dread Central!

100 Feet Promo Reel is Live!

A brand new promo reel for Eric Red’s 100 Feet, which stars Famke Jensen as a woman sentenced to house arrest after killing her husband, unaware that his vengeful ghost is haunting the place, has shown up over at Arrow in the Head! I really can’t wait for this one, and this trailer only cements that anticipation. This sucker looks like it’s going to rock!

Dread Central Wins a Spooky!

First of all, thanks to every single one of you mother bitches that voted for us! DeadLattern.com put together a great list of categories and nominees for their first annual Splatcademy Awards podcast, and we were lucky enough to be one of ‘em. And guess what? We won!

Dreadtime Stories: Michael Laimo's Fires Rising Excerpt!

Michael Laimo is one of the small number of authors I’ve discovered through the monthly publications of Leisure Books whose work has really done something for me. The first book I read by him, The Demonologist (review), impressed me; but it was his last novel, Dead Souls (review), that really made me sit up and take notice.

Exclusive: First Word on Horrorfest 2008!

Wow, I really can’t believe it; After Dark Films is planning on doing a third 8 Films to Die For this year, despite how badly the second edition did at the box office. Maybe this year they’ll really get the promotional push out there instead of relying strictly on horror fans' word-of-mouth...

Images From Beyond the Grave

We last told you about Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Beyond the Grave almost exactly one month ago (“Beyond the Grave Ready to Roll!” - January 2008) and already the folks at Twitch have got their hands on some very promising behind-the-scenes stills from the production.

Grudge 3 Looking for Ghosts

Now we can really begin to see just how weird it’s going to be to have a third Grudge film that’s not being directed by Takashi Shimizu: Neither Takako Fuji nor Yuya Ozeki will be returning for Toby Wilkin’s The Grudge 3

Dimension Grabs Hill's Locke & Key

Usually I'm not thrilled when I hear about Dimension scooping up the rights for pretty much anything genre related, but I have to admit their output as of late has softened me a bit. So I'm actually happy they've got their hands on work from one of my faovrite new authors, Joe Hill.
