No Living Clay for del Toro

The idea of enchanted/cursed clay sculptures coming to life and portraying events that have yet to happen is a kick-ass idea for a movie. With Clive Barker acting as executive producer, there's no way that plot could go to waste, right? Guess I spoke too soon...

Frankenstein Looks Super Dooper!

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to, why don't you go where fashion sits? Shit! FIRE!!!

Behind the Etruscan Mask

I have no idea what an Etruscan Mask is. Not a single clue. Good thing director Ted Nicolaou (Puppet Master vs Demonic Toys) was around to explain it to us via YouTube. Etruscan Mask is an Italian horror film Ted has directed, and it is showing a bit of promise.

Zombie Off C.H.U.D.?

Ryan Rotten of STYD recently updated a story about our confirmation that Rob Zombie would be directing the C.H.U.D. remake ("Zombie to Redo C.H.U.D.!" - November 2007). According to STYD Rob may not be attached to the redux at all, "We got word from Zombie's management team that he is NOT directing the remake."

Meet Marshall at Memorabilia!

While we gear up for the 2nd annual Fear Fest, UK convention-goers will get the same treat Fear Festers will be enjoying come March: meeting Neil Marshall in person!

Freddy and Jason Domesticated?

In the future you'll be able to walk into the housewares section of Crate and Barrell and select a favorite pattern on dishes and bowls featuring your most loved horror film icons. Just picture it ... designer stone antiqued plates with Freddy Krueger staring back at you at the center.

P2 Video Interviews!

With P2 (review) in theaters today and in direct competition with not one but eight other horror films, one can’t help but wonder how well it could do. But if it’s as good as our review and others are saying, maybe it’s a shoe-in for higher box office. Learn more about the film either before or after seeing it by checking out the below on-camera interview with stars Wes Bentley and Rachel Nichols!

Final Eye Poster

Man, I really can’t help but not care about this movie. Like, at all. Sure Jessica Alba’s hot, but that didn’t give me any more reason to watch "Dark Angel" when it was on because she’s also a horrible actress. There, I said it.

Final Crazy Eights Poster!

With After Dark’s second annual Horrorfest making its way to theaters starting today, it’s only appropriate that the final film to be announced, Crazy Eights, finally gets itself some poster art.

Goyer Finds Possession Story

David Goyer has way too much going on at any given time to be able to focus too much on one particular project. One of his most recent announcements that intrigued me was the adaptation of Baltimore (review), but it’s only one movie among many the writer/director is working on.

Hatching a Spider Baby Remake

Indy flick producer extraordinaire Tony DiDio began treading on some familiar ground when he put four new films on his slate. He has his sights set on a follow-up to Toolbox Murders and a remake of a gem that recently got the DVD treatment it deserved: Spider Baby (review)!

Horrorfest Signings Galore!

We just got all the kickass information in about who is signing and where for After Dark's Eight Films to Die For. The full list is below. All signings subject to change. Los Angeles: Mann The Plant/Van Nuys (Friday and Saturday 11/9 & 11/10 & 11/16 & 11/17 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm) 11/9 - Rolfe Kanefsky, Esther Goodstein, Victor Kanefsky, and Alice Kanefsky- all of (Nightmare Man)

Multi-format Invasion!

Is it me or did The Invasion (review) sort of just breeze in and out of theatres with hardly anyone noticing? It had a pretty good cast, but the reshoots kind of made it fall into the "iffy" category for me.

Mandy Lane is Late

Oh, Mandy Lane, where have you gone? Just a couple of months ago you were supposed to be on the silver screen, then you just up and left us. Don't worry though; all the boy still love you. Sure, the movie may have spurned us on more then one occasion, but it is finally heading to theatres ... in March, 2008!

Happy Poster

Earlier this week we informed you about the Japanese horror pic Negative Happy Chainsaw Edge when it appeared at AFM ("Negative Happy at AFM" - November 2007). The tale of a high school sissy trying to save the woman he loves from a chainsaw brandishing madman sounds cool, but the poster isn't really selling it to me.
