Six Fear Itself Directors Named

With the writer’s strike officially over (what a relief that is, lemme tell ya), you can expect more and more massive updates like this on long-standing projects, in this case Fear Itself.

Brand New Fear Fest TV Spot!

Only a few weeks left until death and debauchery descend upon Dallas, TX; I refer of course to the 2nd annual Fear Fest, going down March 7th-9th, 2008!

Site Updates Big & Small!

Well, it’s been a stupid long time coming, but we’ve finally added the option for you guys to write your own reviews to the movies you see reviewed here on Dread Central!

Exclusive: Judd Nelson in Talks for Howl!

It’s been a while since much has been said about the upcoming werewolf flick Howl, but that doesn’t mean we’ve not been keeping our ears perked to hear more about it.

Raw Feed's Otis Trailer

The sickos over at IGN got their paws on the first trailer for Otis, the new horror movie that will be the first in a new wave from Warner Bros.’ Raw Feed banner. The story is about a teenager who escapes the grips of the titular serial killer and her parents, eager to get revenge, decide to take justice in their own hands.

The trades are reporting this morning that Paul (The Da Vinci Code) Bettany has signed on to star in the Screen Gems thriller Legion, the feature directing debut of visual effects house Orphanage co-founder Scott Stewart, who also penned the script with Peter Schink.

Craven Down for 25/8

In case any of you are looking at our lineup for Fear Fest 2 and wondering why in the hell Wes Craven isn’t a part of it, here’s your answer; he’s got a brand new movie that’s finally moving forward now that the Writer’s Strike is 100% officially over.

Video Dread Exclusive: Romero Talks Diary!

There's nothing, and I mean nothing that makes me happier than reporting on a new George A. Romero Dead film. Rather than me expound upon all the gory joys that such a momentous occasion brings, click the video below and listen to the Godfather of our genre speak!

Laura and the New Signal Clip

I truly thought the only way for television to cause anyone to go into a paranoid schizophrenic craze would be 24 straight hours of Fox News, but I may just be wrong. The Signal (review) proved that you don't need Ann Coulter to get a case of the crazies. Instead of you listening to me rant on and on, check out the newest Signal clip titled "Laura".

CSI's Chick Chop Shop

Whenever CBS airs a genre themed episode of "CSI," we like to let you guys know (“CSI Goes to Hell” – January 2008). This week just happens to contain such an episode...

The Dead Need a Babysitter

I've been collecting figures from Sideshow Collectibles for a number of years now. With all honesty I can say that their best line isn't based on any film, but a whole horror sub-genre: zombies.

SOTA's Colorful Cthulhus

The last time we looked at SOTA Toys' upcoming 14" tall resin Cthulhu statue, we knew it was coming in green and some varients were to follow (“SOTA Unleashes a Big Old One” – February 2008). Well, today we got in the pics of what the Old One would look like in a couple different shades.

Roth's Greats in Hollywood

I know during your multiple re-watchings of Hostel and Cabin Fever, you’ve probably asked yourself over and over “Self, what inspires Eli Roth?” Head out to the New Beverly Cinema in LA starting this Sunday and you can find out!

Breathnach's Mist Exclusively Irish?

Just the other day we told you about Paddy (Shrooms) Breathnach’s next film, Red Mist, which is currently lensing in Belfast (“Shrooms Follow-up Gets Four” – February 2008), but at the time we knew zilch about it.

ADF & Massify to Make Nightmares Real

For all you horror freaks who feel there’s nothing to gain by getting out there and trying to make a movie on your own, your time has come! Massify and After Dark Films want to make it for you! A new competition launched this week from the two companies to snatch up an idea from anyone on the web and make it into a horror film. Sound crazy? It probably will be, but who knows; maybe something truly genius will come of it.
