Platinum Dunes to Overhaul Freddy

Of all the horror icons, Freddy Krueger is my favorite. The first horror film I watched was A Nightmare on Elm Street, and from then on I was hooked. It didn't matter what others thought of the sequels; I was glued to the franchise. So, what should one think when this series is put into some questionable hands?

Dread Central Hosts Spooks Forum!

A while back we gave you guys the first word on Ryan (Abominable) Schifrin’s latest project, the horror/action comic Spooks (“Schifrin Talks Spooks” – December 2007).

Romanek Off Wolfman

Wow, this is unexpected; Mark Romanek (pictured, One Hour Photo) has left Universal’s long-anticipated remake of The Wolfman, which was ramping up production for the last few weeks.

Time Crimes Helmer to Change the World?

Seems like everyone’s coming out of Sundance talking about a few films this year; Downloading Nancy is one (we told you about it here) and Time Crimes is another, admittedly both for very different reasons. In the case of Time Crimes, people are impressed by how both smart and horrific it is, a combo we don’t see often enough.

Hill Under Locke & Key

Funny, Nomad and I were just discussing the other day how we’d really like to get more comic coverage on the site, but man if it isn’t impossible to keep up with all the new horror titles out there now. Not that it’s a bad thing!

Moore Finds Shelter

Variety reported this morning that Julianne Moore has signed on to star in Shelter, which they referred to as a “supernatural horror film”, to be produced by Nala Films.

Goyer's Platinum Dunes Projects Rolls

A while back we told you guys about a new project David Goyer was working on with Platinum Dunes that, both then and now, suffered from a lack of title (“Goyer Finds Possession Story” – Nomvember 2007).

The Predator's Packing

Alien VS Predator: Requiem (review) has come and gone. Some loved it and others didn't. One thing we can all be certain of is that the toys from NECA kick some serious ass! Coming out this February are two versions of "The Wolf" Predator. The masked and unmasked figures come with an array of accessories as seen in the movie. Now, if only they'd put out the Pizza Boy so we could give him the thrashing he so deserved in the movie.

Stalk the P2 DVD

According to a flyer floating around the series of tubes known as the interweb, Rachel Nichols' beautiful frame will yet again be chased and harassed when P2 (review) arrives on DVD February 19th.

The Cottage Gets a Trailer

"Strangers don't fare well in these parts." That's the kind of warning we Americans usually hear with a Southern twang attached, but this time it is oddly more ... British. Yeah, I wasn't sure what to make of that either.

New Pic, Festival Dates for Summer Scars!

Though it’s been a while since we’ve heard from director Julian (The Last Horror Movie) Richards about his latest feature, Summer Scars (“Festivals for Richard’s Scars” – September 2007), that doesn’t mean he’s been sitting idly

Adam Green's Spiral: The Anti-Hatchet

In theaters this February 8th is a movie that’s going to make people think twice when they say Adam Green is stuck in the past because of Hatchet.

DVD Releases: Invasion of the Deadly Sluts

Crocs and sluts are ready for you come Tuesday, January 29th, 2008...

Let the Right One In Poster, Trailer

Here I am, reporting on yet another vampire film that actually looks somewhat interesting. Either something is wrong with the world or too many drugs have skewed my perception. Or maybe Let the Right One In is genuinely worth keeping an eye on...
