Pathology Poster Appears

Before we get started, let me just remind everyone to please, PLEASE go see Pathology during its limited release on April 18th (“Help Pathology Past 100 Theatres!” – February 2007). Thanks.

Funny Games Roundtable Discussion: Naomi Watts

With the amazingly good Funny Games (review here) just around the corner, Warner Brothers set up a roundtable discussion with Naomi Watts, and we've got your seat at the table!

Roger Corman's Ten Million Dollar Cyclops

Dread Central got word the other day that production has just begun on Cyclops, a new Roger Corman-produced Sci-Fi Channel original movie from the writer-director of the upcoming Sci-Fi Channel originals' Rock Monster and Genesis Code, both of which I just wrote about last week.

Zompire Returns to Portland, OR

Anyone who's a horror fan has undoubtedly heard of The H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival held in Portland, Oregon, which is now in its 13th year. Well, the promoter of that event has always wanted to show some other films that interested him ... namely, those involving zombies and vampires.

NECA Summons Beetlejuice

It's hard to believe that I was only in the third grade when Beetlejuice first creeped onto the silver screen to deliver gross gags and vulgar jokes. Ah, what a great thing to raise a kid on. Look at how far it has gotten me! Enough of that though...

Salute to Supernatural Coming to LA

As far as this Woman is concerned, there's no couple on TV with better chemistry than Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, who portray demon-hunting brothers Dean and Sam Winchester in The CW's "Supernatural."

Repo Preps for the Web

Waiting is a pain in the ass, but worse than that is when you're waiting around and no news about something you're really looking forward to pops up. Good thing we've got social networking sites!

Pieces Put Together Again

Remember Juan Piquer Simón's Pieces? It was that odd tale of a chainsaw/butcher knife killer who was using parts of his victims to create some sort of girl creature for reasons unknown.

The Cottage is Furnished with DVD Art

If you're going to kidnap someones daughter, make sure you don't run into any backwood psychos along the way. That kind of error can really put a crimp in your day...

First Word on BioShock 2!

As reported by IGN, during a conference call with investors, Take-Two finally formally announced BioShock 2 to absolutely nobody's surprise. Still, it's only fitting that the pencilled in October 2009 release date should be so far off.

Lost Boys: The Tribe Trailer!

You’ve been waiting with baited breath for it (assuming you’re still breathing) and finally it is upon us; the first trailer for Lost Boys: The Tribe! MTV’s got it exclusively, so you better get clicking to check it out! No word on a release date yet, but we'll let you know when we do!

Banshee!!! Trailer!

Banshee!!! is the latest offering from Synthetic Cinema International, the company behind Werewolf: The Devil's Hound, Blood Descendants, and (my faves) the Jaws spoof Trees and its even sillier sequel, The Root of All Evil. Their newest venture into monsterdom takes the legend of the mythical Irish monster known as the Banshee and makes into an unstoppable, almost gargoyle-esque monster.

Can We Survive the Blitzkrieg?

With all these directors out there trying to be both cutting edge and old school, how many do you think would have the balls to actually make a new Nazi-sploitation film? Only one director comes to mind, and it ain’t Rob Zombie; it’s Keith Crocker, he of Bloody Ape fame.

Raimi to Bring Us Monster Zoo

Is it just me or are we doing more and more stories about original stuff getting the greenlight in Hollywood these days? After the glut of remakes it sure is nice to report on stuff like Monster Zoo, a title that just makes me smile on general principal.

Wolfgang to Direct an Uprising

Wolfgang Peterson isn’t really a name that inspires thoughts of classic films like it used to, thanks in no small part to his recent re-imagining, Poseidon, and the Brad Pitt period film Troy, but I really dig the idea of him doing a new sci-fi epic.
