The word is out December 11th on DVD! What word you ask? Did you not read the title of the story? Here, let me spell it out for you -- V. Ernest Dickerson's V Word to be exact. There. Now you're one of the cool kids!
As the doors closed at the Erie Playhouse late Sunday night, it marked the end of the Eerie Horror Film Festival’s fourth and most successful year to date. Groups of friends, old and new, gathered in huddles exchanging emotional goodbyes and promises of next year’s event. For those of us who were involved in the inner workings of the fest, the locking of the doors behind us was bittersweet.
All right, so it’s nothing dramatically new like the Nightmare Man poster was, but at least it’s official, right? Below is the final After Dark Films poster for Frontiere(s), the French thriller that will be out as part of their 2nd annual Horrorfest (as if the banner at the top didn’t tell you that already...). Check out the Horrorfest site for more info on all the films they’ve announced so far, and keep an eye out for my interview with Frontiere(s) director Xavier Gens later this week!
The man who brought us Broken (review) and Devil's Chair is moving his way on to another new horror pic called Blood River. Adam Mason has a way with titles, doesn't he? They could be about absolutely nothing, but I'd still go see them based on the names alone!
Sam Raimi has been a busy man this year. The director made sure Spider-Man brought in the bucks and he looks to do the same with another comic book-turned-film this year, 30 Days of Night (review). Raimi is acting as producer on this project, but his presence can be felt.
G4 is geeking out to 30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles starting this week: "In a Geek Out special, we're going to spend the next five days getting to know 30 Days of Night (review) author Steve Niles really, really well.
One of my favorite books of the year, Long Last Call (review) is, as you already know, headed for the big screen. Fangoria got a chance to chat with the author/future director John Skipp about the adaptation, as well as another project he’s been working on forever now called Jake’s Wake.
Oh, that wacky, wacky Asylum ... Who else besides them would so shamelessly capitalize on the release of the upcoming Alien vs. Predator sequel with a movie called AVH: Alien vs. Hunter?
We’ve been telling you about the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society’s upcoming adaptation of The Whisperer in Darkness since the project was first hinted at on the HPLHS official site. Now, thanks to eagle-eyed reader “American Werewolf”, we’ve got your first look at the teaser trailer for it!
What’s the best way to make sure the maximum amount of people see your short film? Put it in front of a Uwe Boll movie, of course!
A new Eden Log trailer has found its way online via YouTube, really the best place to find the latest and greatest video content. It doesn’t make a helluva lot of sense, but is still kinda cool nonetheless. The title refers to the company responsible for a series of underground paths and tunnels, which a man named Tolbiac must find his way through to escape a mysterious creature hot on his heels. Click here for the new Eden Log teaser and stay tuned for more info as it's acquired!
Now, I don’t watch TV as a general rule. Not because I believe there’s anything wrong with it, it’s just too damn distracting. Most of my days (and nights, and afternoons) are spent pounding the virtual pavement for the site, so TV doesn’t get much play.
After Dark Films just sent us over the final, official poster advertising this year’s Horrorfest, November 9th-18th, 2007. As you can see they’re still using the same sexy/monstrous look they had for the last one, just a bit sexier … if you ask me. Keep it here; we’ll have interviews with most if not all of this year’s Horrorfest directors in the coming weeks!
Could it be we’re looking down the barrel of a good werewolf movie again?
Pulse: Invasion, the second direct-to-DVD sequel to the American remake of Kairo, has just received a pretty decent cast. Moviehole is reporting that Cabin Fever lead Rider Strong was recently tapped to appear beside Jamie Bamber and Laura Cayouette to name a few familiar names in the upcoming Pulse pack.
