Boogeyman Boosts Quality

Whether you're willing to admit it or not, the Internet is going to be the future of all media. Right now we can watch nearly any TV show or movie or listen to any song we want to on the World Wide Web, and it's only going to keep growing. The series of tubes is also a great launching ground for many who want to break into the entertainment business, like with Internet radio.

First Trailer for The Oxford Murders!

It’s kind of strange to see a film shot in English by a Spanish director, only for it to be dubbed in Spanish for the sake of trailer-izing it, but such is the case for the latest from Alex de la Iglesia (Day of the Beast), The Oxford Murders. The trailer, which you can see below, comes to you courtesy of Cinema VIP and is the first proper look at the long-awaited horror/mystery.

Beltrami Scores The Eye

When it comes to scoring horror films these days, few names are as instantly recognizable as Marco Beltrami. Over the years the man has created original scores for fright flicks like the Scream trilogy, The Omen, Hellboy, Joy Ride, Mimic ... the list goes on and on.

Spanish [REC] TV Spots

This Friday, November 23rd, [REC] (review) will finally arrive in Spanish cinemas. Early word is that it’s going to scare a shitload of people; hell, they’re even showing audience reaction in one of three TV spots that were just put up on Aullidos!

Ellis On Another Final Destination

Wow, it feels like a few years ago all over again this morning. The Hollywood Reporter got word that David R. Ellis (Snakes on a Plane) will return to the Final Destination franchise for the fourth movie in the series for New Line, which they plan on shooting in 3-D.

Insomnifest Wants You!

Are you tired of not being able to fly around the world to be part of the film festival experience? Do you wish to have your work shown to millions of people across the globe without having to pay hefty entrance fees and deal with all the B.S. politics? Then we’ve got some badass news for you today.

Triangle Next for Severance Helmer

Today it was verified that Christopher Smith, director of Creep and Severance, two very different movies in terms of tone and attitude, will be next working on a feature called Triangle.

Clean & Smooth Cloverfield Trailer!

I’ll make this short and to the point: As promised, a high-quality version of the new Cloverfield trailer has shown up online, and Empire is the one who nabbed it. Check it out right here, and be on the lookout for monsters; there are quite a few shots of them, big and small!

Exclusive: I Sell the Dead Back in Production!

It’s been five months since Glenn McQuaid’s 18th Century period horror film I Sell the Dead has been in front of cameras, but over the weekend we learned that finally all is back in place to continue making what promises to be the most interesting of Larry Fessenden’s Scareflix film lineup to date.

DVD Releases: Back to Normal

Not a lot of good will be out on Tuesday, November 20th, but then you'll be too tired from all the turkey to care...

Leisure Coming to Evilshop!

One thing, I think, that’s always set Dread Central apart from our fellow horror sites is our focus on horror in literature. I would venture to guess, of all the general horror news sites out there, we have more book reviews and stories about books than most. It’s something I’ve always been proud of, even though at times it was a struggle to keep such coverage alive.

Thirteen Years of Dark Delicacies!

For those of you who have never had the occasion to visit Dark Delicacies in Burbank, California, you really don’t know what you’re missing. It’s been years since I was there, but I remember it as the kind of shop I could see myself spending hours in and was very glad it wasn’t any closer to my home otherwise I’d be a very poor man in no time.

Behind the Malevolence

Though we’ve heard a lot of good stuff about the upcoming prequel to Steve Mena’s Malevolence, the folks over at Icons of Fright have actually got the video to prove how well things are looking on the film, which is currently filming down in Pennsylvania.

Gaiman Gives Coraline Update!

Finally some movement has happened on Henry (The Nightmare Before Christmas) Selick’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline. I know it takes a long time to make stop-motion come to life, but it seems like it’s been way too long for this project.

Sweeney Todd Sings!

This one’s really for the ladies when it comes down to it. Sure, it’s cool to see some early footage from Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd, and studio sessions of star Johnny Depp singing his heart out, but we guys aren’t going to gush about how cute Depp still is (despite being in his forties … the bastard) like the ladies will. So girls, consider this an early Thanksgiving present!
