Snake women. I think if you asked horror fans across the globe what still scares them after all this time, the answer wouldn’t be ghosts, or vampires, or demonic possession; not, it’d be snake women. Split Image Pictures knows this, somehow, and have tapped Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Surveillance) to bring out fears to film.
Been a long time since we heard anything about Dark Reel, the film-within-a-film by Josh Eisenstadt that we showed you a whole slew of images from back here.
As filming rolls on in Regina, Canada for Dolan’s Cadillac, the latest Stephen King short story to get the feature film treatment, the small town’s local press are getting some one-on-one time with one of the film's leads, Christian Slater.
I wish we had reported on this earlier, but I’m actually glad we waited cause this was worth it. By now you’ve likely heard of Pascal Laugier’s Martyrs, a French film that’s been making all sorts of waves since it showed up at Cannes this year. Apparently this is the next big thing in horror, folks.
The ever reliable Avery Guerra tipped me off that eccentric Z-grade filmmaker Ted V. Mikels (The Corpse Grinders, The Astro-Zombies, The Girl with Gold Boots) has a new fright flick coming down the pike called Demon Haunt. Here's the synopsis courtesy of Ted V. Mikels' personal website.
It’s 5AM in Austin, TX. I haven’t slept in 24 hours and I have a flight to catch at 9AM. I’m tired, my stomach hurts and I’m more than a little loopy right now. But you know what? None of it matters, because I just spent the day on the set of Friday the 13th!
Finally! A new installment of The Buz has arrived, but ... what is this? It's not a comic?! Oh noes!!!1!!11!!
Recently we had the opportunity to catch up with the mighty Sam Raimi and caught an interesting tidbit on the non-activity of the rumored Evil Dead remake.
Variety reported the sad news today that Fear Itself, the horror anthology we've been talking about since last year, didn't pull the kind of ratings we were really hoping for. The show lost out to CBS's "Swingtown," which also premiered on June 5th.
Website developer Lightmaker announced today that they have created a site for writer/director M. Night Shyamalan, but it is not just any site. This webpage has a twist!
We just got word from Quiet Earth's Don Neumann that a director has joined them to helm at least one of the planned three films based off the badass comic Dark OZ. The Gene Generation's own Pearry Reginald Teo will be stepping up to the plate for what we've been told will be a very Return to OZ and "steampunk" inspired adaptation.
Is it wrong to be so attracted to Thora Birch? I mean really, really attracted? Not to the point of stalking or anything, but close ... I’ll take your silence to mean that no, it is not wrong. Moving on!
It was back in early February that I first reported on Reptisaurus, a low budget creature feature loosely based on an old Charlton Comics' comic book title from the early 1960's. The movie from director Chris Ray (son of Fred Olen Ray) and co-starring former TV "Buck Rogers" Gil Gerard tells the simple tale of a group of soldiers on an island that find themselves at the mercy of a flying reptilian monster.
I like that Adam Sandler is back from whatever weird hiatus he was on and making movies again. I know many find him annoying and obnoxious (I do as well most of the time), but his new flick looks like it has some potential, and now he’s making his way into our genre, a move that should be interesting to say the least.
Vanguard Animations and Platinum Studios have decided to join forces to form a new, multi-platform media group called Vanguard Comics, according to Variety. Their goal is to develop properties that can be launched as comics, graphic novels, and feature films, starting with the chupacabra story Illegal Aliens.
