If you haven’t yet checked out Frank Sudol’s City of Rott (review), you really don’t know what you're missing. I won’t tell you about it now; just check out the review and see what I mean.
Devils, pies, sorority girls, murder and Tiffany Shepis... Ah, it sounds like the ultimate fantasy for yours truly. But wait, this is a reality thanks to her new partnership (Nightmare Works SKG) with Rolfe Kanefsky and Esther Goodstein.
It’s always annoying for us in this business when we see a really cool indie film and have no way of telling you guys how to enjoy it as well. Such is not the case for The Grand Horror (review), however, because its creators have finally gotten it onto DVD. Rejoice!
You may recall that a few months back we did a story about Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Driftwood) making first mention of a new film he was working on called Clowns ("Sullivan Talks Clowns, Blood” – December 2007).
I know it’s been a while since Fear Fest, but most of us had the shit beaten out of us at the show (well worth it), and it took us a while to recover. Here is some evidence of that recovery: the first of a few on-camera interviews conducted by Clint McCrocklin, a good friend of the site.
No joke, these are the horror DVDs you'll be able to purchase come Tuesday, April 1st, 2008...
Fangoria Radio got to chatting with Masters of Horror creator Mick Garris the other night, who revealed, unsurprisingly, that he is off to do Stephen King’s Bag of Bones as his next film according to Fango. The story is about an author who retreats to his lake house in order to try writing again after the loss of his wife.
I’ve not seen the horror film Waz yet, but I’ve heard a lot of good things about it over the last year or so. Dimension has its hands on it and is hopefully making a plan for its release as we speak.
Back during the annual Toy Fair, Mezco made some pretty cool announcements about their upcoming Cinema of Fear lineup, but not many pics of the actual figures were available. That’s because most are still in the prototype stage right now and awaiting approval.
The cast for Wes Craven’s next horror venture,25/8, is beginning to take shape according to The Hollywood Reporter, and finally we have a bit of plot we can work with.
Numerous sci-fi TV shows have been given their own conventions, but the same can't be said for their horror cousins.
Looks like the news we’ve all been waiting for has finally broke; the identity of the new Jason Voorhees for the Friday the 13th remake that’s on its way form Platinum Dunes (it’ll be gritty!)
I don’t necessarily know that these online petitions for special edition DVDs work, but they sure can’t hurt. The one thing that prevents a studio from putting out re-released SE’s of any DVD is their concern no one’ll buy it, so if they see fans clamoring for an SE of, for example, Fright Night, maybe they’ll finally make it happen.
Though it’s not a huge update, I really can’t wait to check out Glenn McQuaid’s I Sell the Dead, which stars Dominic Monaghan, Larry Fessenden and Ron Perlman in a story about two body snatchers (Monaghan and Fessenden, pictured) who confess to their very fucked up lives to a priest (Perlman) right before their trip to the gallows.
See, I knew One Missed Call director Eric Valette (pictured) could would do something better for his next film. Why did I know? His first movie, Malefique, is damn good, so I knew he had some skills beyond Hollywood remakes. Enter Hybrid.
