First Pics From Plague Town!

A few weeks back I told you about my visit to the set of Plague Town, the first film from DVD featurette creator extraordinaire David Gregory (“Plague Town Set Visit Preview!” – October 2007).

Deadtime Stories Filming!

No sooner has the announcement been made that George Romero was producing a new horror anthology series, Deadtime Stories (“Romero’s New Deadtime Stories” – November 2007), than we get word that the flick has already started filming in and around Fayette County, Pennsylvania!

Cold Prey Sequelized

Just the other day it was announced that Cold Prey, the world’s first Norwegian snowboarding slasher film, was finally seeing a release here in the States (“U.S. Release for Cold Prey” – November 2007), and already a sequel is in the works.

Sullivan to Recut 2001 Maniacs

Icons of Fright made me smile today. In a recently interview with 2001 Maniacs (review) director Tim Sullivan they got him to spill the beans regarding a sequel and a re-release of the first one ... with some major changes:

Blu Saw and Blade Returns

I've yet to see SAW IV (review) and it is still in a few theatres, but that isn't stopping Lionsgate from getting the buzz out in regards to the DVD.

Holiday Horrors for Friday Night Frights

Our Fear Fest cohorts over at Pit of Horror are readying up for a winter slay ride with their holiday themed Friday Night Frights. This time around you can catch Romero's original Dawn of the Dead on December 14th and Silent Night, Deadly Night on the 21st. The doors of Studio Movie Grill in Lewisville, TX open at 7:30PM and the flicks begin at 8:00PM.

Sweeney Todd's New Doo

When you've stuck a man unjustly in jail, it's best not to let him open up a barber shop once released. He couldn't possibly hold a grudge or two ... could he? That's just the case in the upcoming Tim Burton and Johnny Depp musical Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

One Strause on AVP:R

Just less than a month to go. Are you ready for AVP: Requiem? You better be! If this movie comes in last place at the boxoffice, we can kiss a space marine sequel good bye.

Rue Morgue Next Door

I really never thought I’d see the day that, not only would there be a filmed adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s seminal novel about a true suburban nightmare, The Girl Next Door (review), but that it’d also be on the cover of one of the most widely-distributed genre mags out there.

Exclusive: First Peek Behind Peekers!

Recently I had the chance to visit the set of a local film called "Peekers", directed by Dead @ 17 (review) helmer Mark Steensland, where I was witness to a scene being shot using the green screen equipment at Mercyhurst College here in Erie, PA (pictured, see more pics from the set below!). Peekers is based on a short story written by Kealan Patrick Burke. I won’t give too many details about the movie’s content, but I will say this much; Peekers is by far the best work I’ve seen from Steensland.

Interplanetary Tease

Word came down that a new teaser for Crewless Productions’ Interplanetary, their follow up to the underrated Hide and Creep (DVD review), has found it’s way onto YouTube. This time out the Crewless gang are way overstepping what most would say are their low-budget bounds, creating an epic scifi/horror piece, but they’re a talented lot and I bet they’ll pull it off admirably.

Three More Ghost House Sequels

See what I mean about Ghost House? All of a sudden they just want to churn out sequels instead of focusing on, I don’t know, something original. *UPDATE: So we learned this stuff isn't exactly new but what the hell, it's new to us!

Catacombs Art, Specs Revealed

After waiting for so long on info for Catacombs, the movie Twisted Pictures produced shortly after the first Saw, it’s so anticlimactic for it to just drop to DVD with nary any fanfare.

Carpenter's Fear Itself Episode Revealed!

So far the lineup for Fear Itself is looking very promising, even if the Writer’s strike has caused the series’ creator, Mick Garris, to step away from the creative control for now.

Boogeyman Cubed

Why are they making more Boogeyman films? Remember when it was cool and exciting that Sam Raimi was forming his own production house? Now Ghost House has become just as generic and buck-hungry as everyone else, as is evidence by yet another sequel to the tepid Boogeyman being in the works.
