A new project for The Maid (DVD review) director Kelvin Tong was announced today over at Twitch Film and, if nothing else, it sounds a helluva lot more interesting than The Maid was...
Not the most exciting of updates, but I know there are some of you chomping at the bit for more info on Richard Kelly’s next film, The Box, so we’ll give you whatever we can to keep you from chewing off your own tongue. Cause, you know, we care.
Word came in this morning that shooting has officially wrapped on the horror/comedy Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead, which we gave you guys the first word on a few months back (“Hamlet Characters Undead!” – December 2007).
This really has nothing to do with anything, but I know how it can be when you’re stuck at work on a Wednesday; the week’s not yet half over, you've still got two full days to get through before the weekend, and you just want to look at pictures of hot chicks doing cool horror stuff.
The Second Annual B-Movie Celebration to be held in Franklin, Indiana has been announced for September 26-28 with over 50 classic (and not-so-classic) B-movies to be screened, plus a special retrospective showcasing the works of Jim Wynsorski and a lifetime achievement award honoring the great Stuart Gordon.
How happy would it make The Frog Brothers to know that someone actually made a comic book out of their dealings with the undead? Something tells me outwardly they’d shrug it off, but be geeking out on the inside.
Gotta love it when a movie’s not even done being made yet and I’m already sick of hearing about it and seeing it seemingly everywhere. This time that flick is Catherine Hardwicke’s Twilight, the adaptation of the first book in the vampire series by Stephanie Meyer that we can’t seem to stop talking about (“Four More for Twilight” – February 2008)
By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Don Coscarelli’s next project, but if not allow us to be the first to tell you about John Dies at the End, an adaptation of the debut novel by David Wong.
Jack Brooks is an ordinary guy with a lot of rage inside. When he one day accidentally unleashes an ancient evil, he must become a slayer of monsters in order to protect the world.
Somehow the trend of remaking horror flicks from the Far East still isn't dying down (thanks Shutter). When will studios jump on another remake bandwagon? Why not bring us some good old slashers involving camps or campers? Oh well, it looks like that area of the horror genre will be left up to the indie filmmakers for now.
What won't people turn into musicals these days? What films won't studios decide to remake for that matter? Not even Troma is safe from this weird trend!
After months of seemingly nothing going on, finally we’re getting updates fast and loose from the Haunted World of El Superbeasto people. The animated film from Rob Zombie is due out later this year.
So this past Friday George A. Romero’s Diary of the Dead (review) finally made its way to theaters, and to say it had a polarizing effect on the Dread staff is likely one of the biggest understatements of the year.
How much this will appeal to horror fans is really up to their level of patience, I think, and how the film is going to be pulled off, but The Hollywood Reporter learned this morning that Stone Village Pictures and producer Scott Steindroff are bringing Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master & Margarita to the big screen.
