Seems like every corner of the world has their own film festival these days, so I really think one needs to be as picky as possible as to which the hit up. Sure, the climate doesn’t make a helluva lot of difference when you’re sitting in theater all day, but wouldn’t it just be so much cooler to be in, say, Rio de Janeiro watching movies?
Welcome in 2008 with these DVDs coming your way Tuesday, January 1st, 2008...
Those sickos over at Upcoming Horror Movies have delivered some very good news to those of use dreading the marketing campaign for a new Day of the Dead film; the remake is getting the direct to DVD treatment. Hell to the yeah.
Just before Christmas we told you about the first film announced for the first ever online only film festival being put on by Slasherpool ("Insomnifest's First Title Announced!" – December 2007). Now, to celebrate the new year they've updated us on the second title in their lineup, TheCampusHouse.com.
You may recall a few months back, our man Nomad had a set of 16” Qees that were signed by a shitload of people, which he was preparing to auction off to benefit the children of St. Jude’s Hospital.
While critics all over have been raving about David Cronenberg’s last two films, A History of Violence and Eastern Promises, some horror fans have been wondering what happened to the Cronenberg who delivered The Fly, The Brood, Rabid and more genre-defining works to their greedy eyeballs.
The official MySpace page for Steven Miller’s zombie splatterfest Automaton Transfusion (review) just put up the kick ass box art you see on your right for the film’s March 4th DVD release.
The man, the myth, the legend; Dan Walton. All right, so his name may not mean a lot to you, but Dan’s well known to anyone who visits horror sites with the kind of untamed gusto that true devotees display, as he’s the driving force behind Upcoming Horror Movies, one of the longest running horror sites out there.
The folks at Image Entertainment have got some pretty cool box art together for their upcoming release of Douglas ("Cutting Moments") Buck’s Sisters redux, which gets the direct to DVD treatment on March 11th, 2008.
It’s a good time for Larry Fessenden’s Scarefilix imprint; yesterday we showed you the art work for the production company’s Trigger Man, due out next year ("Ti West’s Trigger Man DVD Specs" – December 2007), and today the Fango
While discussing some of the finer points of his next outing as a vampire in the film Blood Shot (read about it here), actor Michael Bailey Smith dropped some new info on Dread Central about his role as the Chain Man in the upcoming Twisted Pictures production, Chain Letter.
Apparently I missed the sad news about Sangre Eterna director Jorge Olguin no longer working on the Clock Tower adaptation; that or the film is in such a state of development hell that he decided to work on some other things while it’s pending. Things like the first Chilean zombie film, The Descendents (aka Solos).
Are you, like the rest of us, pissed at how Grindhouse was treated on DVD when it was released here in the states? Refuse to buy it until Dimension caves and puts both films and the faux trailers in one set?
Among assorted other DVD news, the Fangoria ghouls got their hands on the DVD info for Ti West’s follow up to his equally loved and hated debut, The Roost, the hunter-becomes-hunted flick Trigger Man.
