Towards the end of our most recent Dinner for Fiends (hear it here), I managed to squeeze some info out of our guest star, A.J. Bowen (pictured, sans beard, from his latest film Maidenhead), about his upcoming role in Ti West’s House of the Devil, a movie he seems very happy to be doing.
Two more have joined the cast of Maverick Films’ redux of the 1987 horror/thriller The Stepfather according to sources over at The Hollywood Reporter this morning.
We’ve been hoping for some good news on the Transsiberian front since the new film from Session 9 director Brad Anderson started making its festival rounds, and finally Variety delivered this morning.
No, it's not Max Schreck on steroids. Dread Central has scored the first pics of genre fav Michael Bailey Smith (The Hills Have Eyes) decked out as the gun-toting, ass-kicking nosferatu in Blood Shot - a horror/action/comedy currently filming in Los Angeles.
This evening we learned that filmmaker David C. King's project Picklock has been released via the web. Fival Scorn Shank Productions is hosting the entire thirteen minute short film that can be streamed by all visitors or you can just check it out below. But, what is Picklock?
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.
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?
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
