Usually I'm not thrilled when I hear about Dimension scooping up the rights for pretty much anything genre related, but I have to admit their output as of late has softened me a bit. So I'm actually happy they've got their hands on work from one of my faovrite new authors, Joe Hill.
You know the name Angry Alien by now, right? They're those weirdos who started doing 30-second re-enactments of our favorite movies with cartooon bunnies. They're brilliant, no? Now they've done a 60 (ish) second re-enactment of Grindhouse, complete with fake trailers! You should just click here to check it out cause it's pretty damn funny!
The news/rumors about Lars Von Trier's Antichrist project have been coming and going for about two years now with no real solid evidence that the film would ever enter production (“The Antichrist to Rise?” – December 2007). Usually any news about it would be met with a grain of salt, but this time there's actually something to smile about.
Yeah, they were up for an Oscar this year, but some of the nominees have monsters in their closets. A few on the list are respectable (Julie Christie in Don't Look Now) while others are downright Fangorian (Hal Holbrook in Creepshow). Mentioned among the departed: Bob Clark (Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things) and William Tuttle (Young Frankenstein, Mark of the Vampire) Best Actor: Michael Clayton George Clooney
Magnet, the new genre arm of Magnolia, sure is serious about nabbing new horror before anyone else can. Let the Right One In, the Swedish vampire film we first told you about here, has been scooped up by Magnet for North American release, they reported today.
Just a few weeks back we gave you guys the first word on a new film being produced by and starring The Signal’s A.J. Bowen (“Signal Star Talks Maidenhead!” – January 2008), and today those badasses over at Icons of Fright have the first look at the film’s gorgeous trailer!
The Eerie Horror Film Festival is proud to announce that this year’s event will be held in a spectacular new location. The Warner Theater in Erie, PA will graciously open its regal doors to the young film festival this October from the 9th to the 12th.
Below are the tasty treats coming to DVD this Tuesday, February 26th, 2008...
Ever since I got to see an early screening copy of Larry Fessenden’s eco-horror masterpiece The Last Winter (review), I’ve been dying to find out when the film will finally hit DVD, considering its theatrical run was limited at best. Today I found out and thought I’d share it with you guys! See how much we care?
It’s not huge news but since it’s post-Oscar time in Hollywood there’s not a whole helluva lot going on this morning, so why not make mention of it? If nothing else I can make fun of Rob Zombie’s Halloween one more time...
Though it’s now old news that Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan will be doing a page one rewrite on the script for the Hellraiser remake, which is still set to be directed by Inside team Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, Variety finally got around to officially announcing it today.
Sometime last week an early teaser site for Alexandre Aja’s Mirrors, a remake of the 2003 Korean film Into the Mirror, found its way online. Though there’s not a helluva lot on there now, it’s a good sign that things are progressing with Mirrors even while talk of Aja’s Piranha redux is going on.
It’s so cool to see that Coffin Joe finally has the chance to see his work get the respect it’s always deserved but the world was not quite ready to give it.
All right, just under a month left before Neil Marshall’s Doomsday hits theaters (be sure to check out our ass-kicking contest for it right here) and finally the film’s official site has opened up beyond just the trailer.
Tantalizing. I wonder what it could be? At this weekend’s WonderCon, the guys at SlashFilm got their hands on the flyer you see below, stating that a very big Ghostbusters announcement would be made at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
