The jury is still out on when we'll see The Chin's latest project My Name is Bruce hitting theatres or stores (“Bruce Talks Home Invasion” – November 2007), but it is always a good sign when the PR starts rolling heavy down the road.
So in an interesting decision to promote this week’s release of Rob Zombie’s Halloween on DVD, the media site Buzznet got the new Michael Myers, Tyler Mane, to reprise his role as the maniacal killer only this time instead of looking for a relative to murder, he’s just trying to fit into the rat race. Losing the mask might help.
Oh YouTube ... is there nothing we cannot find there? Wonderful videos of kittens to obese girls attempting to be hot deck the halls of that wonderful site. OK, a lot of those videos suck, but today we haven one that doesn't. The video quality may be crap, but it since when can you ever have enough Cloverfield? Check out the new TV spot below.
In case you couldn’t tell by the huge banner on our front page, we’re pretty damn excited about this year’s Fear Fest lineup: Neil Marshall, Robert Englund, Tom Holland, Michale Graves … yeah, it’s going to be an epic year that is sure to top last year’s event and then some.
Too many people just want to give gifts to their semi-acquaintances and tolerated ones that are all nicey-nice and safe. Well not us! We like to give the gift of HELL(boy)!
Though most of you’ve probably never even heard of it, those who have will be happy to know that Karaoke Terror (review) has finally got a DVD release date via Synapse Films according to KFC Cinema; April 29th, 2008!
Those of you who are huge fans of Scott Smith’s novel The Ruins (review) may have some issues to take with Carter Smith’s (no relation) adaptation of the book to film form.
Who really created the Earth? Some say God, others blame our existance on science. Personally, I think it all falls on the shoulders of the red bastard, Satan. Obviously Dogville director Lars von Trier feels the same way.
If One Missed Call's official site hasn't reeled you in then maybe a plethora of new and old stills will. Don't worry, some of these new images are far more exciting than the previous few we saw not long ago ("One Missed Call & Four Pics" – December 2007). Check 'em out below and see the pic in theatres on January 4th.
Lucky McKee & Trygve Allister Diesen's adaptaion of Jack Ketchum's Red looks to be coming together nicely. There's no trailer to speak of, but plenty of stills just surfaced.
Check out what’s hitting shelves just in time for Christmas on Tuesday, December 18th, 2007...
All right, why have I not heard of this before? Someone on this staff is going to be getting a beating. I’m looking at you, plagiarize!
I have to admit, I’m intrigued by the idea behind Jennifer’s Body, the latest film to be scooped up by Fox Atomic for production (“More Jennifer’s Body Info!” – November 2007).
Self-distribution seems to be the way to go for most indie films these days, especially when indie filmmakers just aren’t being given the kinds of DVD deals they feel they deserve. Such is the case with Scott (The Stink of Flesh) Phillips and his latest entry into our genre, Gimme Skelter (review).
Though I question its actual place in horror, the first Cell movie was weird enough to give it some standing within our genre, so if a sequel is being made, especially one without Jennifer Lopez, it’s worth a mention.
