It's hard to believe that 30 years have passed since John Carpenter spawned the masked killer Michael Myers. For three decades the sister murdering maniac has been haunting the silver screen, and for that he deserves one hell of a convention.
Today we heard from Uwe Boll himself via a very strange and somewhat amusing e-mail declaring that Postal would finally be released theatrically the same day that Indiana Jones is premiering. Does Dr. Boll stand a chance against Dr. Jones? He sure thinks so...
I gotta be honest; I lost a lot of interest in the NBC Fear Itself series when I learned Mick Garris was no longer involved. The concept was his to begin with, and even though the results in both seasons of Masters of Horror were questionable, there was still an indie feel to them that I had to respect.
Just the other day we showed you the first pics from Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Undead (check ‘em out right here); today we got our hands out the first teaser trailer for the film. The horror/comedy involves a very strange adaptation of Hamlet written by a pale Romanian who just happens to be a vampire. Check out the trailer below and the official site for Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Undead when you’re done!
Those of you out there who are serious collectors likely know the name Mego. Back in the 1970’s, Mego were the first company to release 8” poseable action figures for characters from “Star Trek” and “Batman”.
As a special offer from the badasses over at Horror Idols, creators of amazing figures from Jeepers Creepers, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Hatchet and now 2001 Maniacs, we’ve got a very cool $100 off coupon for anyone attending Fear Fest in Dallas this weekend!
Well, this weekend will see the second annual Fear Fest, in case you couldn’t tell by our constant screaming about it on every corner of the site, and to prepare for the debauchery that shall follow, we decided to have a nice, sane conversation about it.
Check out the horrific DVDs being offered up this Tuesday, March 4th, 2008...
Like love at first sight, the poster for Bio Slime had me at “hello”. Wow, what a beautiful thing that is, and you know what? The trailer only adds to the beauty!
You just try and tell me Doomsday doesn’t look like it’s going to be a shitload of fun when it hits theaters on March 14th. The biggest issue I see with it doing well is that no one really has anything to compare it to that’s been made in the last, say, 15 years. It’s post-apocalyptic and yet not, a horrific action film ... it's got some elements of 28 Days/Weeks Later but it's a different film altogether ... Gotta love it!
All right, another movie about organ harvesting! How can we ever get sick of this semi-trend in horror? Maybe the addition of Dermot Mulroney (Zodiac) to the cast of Run for Her Life will help us decide that the trend is officially dead? Man I hope not!
Though various projects have been mentioned over the years that would see a more horrific form of Frank L. Baum’s Oz come to the big screen, nothing’s ever come to fruition to date. Will the newly bought rights to the Caliber Comics title Dark Oz be among them?
Just a quick heads-up to everyone out there who’s looking forward to Fear Fest 2 next weekend as much as, or more than, we are: Pit of Horror's John Gray will be making an appearance tonight on Horror Movie Fans radio at 7PM PST to discuss the show, followed by Sean and Jonathan Lewis to talk about Black Devil Doll, which we’ll be showing exclusive clips from at Fear Fest 2!
When we gave you the update on the upcoming Night of the Demons remake the other day, I promised we’d have more info on Brain Dead, the latest film from original Demons director Kevin S. Tenney. And here it is!
I know you’re probably sick of seeing posters for The Ruins a full month before its release. We’ve already shown you three of ‘em to date, but I can’t help it; they’re all pretty cool so when a new one shows up, we have to mention it. Case in point: IMP Awards Just got a look at the international Ruins poster, which you can see below, so now we're showing you. That's called sharing.
