New Edges of Darkness Trailer

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.

Trailer for Open Graves

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.

Another Ruins Poster

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!

One Missed DVD

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!

100 Feet Promo Reel is Live!

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!

Dread Central Wins a Spooky!

First of all, thanks to every single one of you mother bitches that voted for us! DeadLattern.com put together a great list of categories and nominees for their first annual Splatcademy Awards podcast, and we were lucky enough to be one of ‘em. And guess what? We won!

Dreadtime Stories: Michael Laimo's Fires Rising Excerpt!

Michael Laimo is one of the small number of authors I’ve discovered through the monthly publications of Leisure Books whose work has really done something for me. The first book I read by him, The Demonologist (review), impressed me; but it was his last novel, Dead Souls (review), that really made me sit up and take notice.

Exclusive: First Word on Horrorfest 2008!

Wow, I really can’t believe it; After Dark Films is planning on doing a third 8 Films to Die For this year, despite how badly the second edition did at the box office. Maybe this year they’ll really get the promotional push out there instead of relying strictly on horror fans' word-of-mouth...

Images From Beyond the Grave

We last told you about Davi de Oliveira Pinheiro’s Beyond the Grave almost exactly one month ago (“Beyond the Grave Ready to Roll!” - January 2008) and already the folks at Twitch have got their hands on some very promising behind-the-scenes stills from the production.

Grudge 3 Looking for Ghosts

Now we can really begin to see just how weird it’s going to be to have a third Grudge film that’s not being directed by Takashi Shimizu: Neither Takako Fuji nor Yuya Ozeki will be returning for Toby Wilkin’s The Grudge 3

Dimension Grabs Hill's Locke & Key

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.

Grindhouse. With Bunnies

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!

Von Trier's Antichrist Shoots in Summer!

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.

Before the Oscars, They Belonged to Us

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 Will Let the Right One In

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.
