What I never understood about '80s pop culture was the focus on Freddy Krueger. Don't get me wrong; I love Nightmare, but there's just something really wrong about having footy pajamas featuring a child killer on them. In comparison, I don't think Jason Voorhees got the same kind of over-exposure he deserved. Until now...
Those sexy folks over at Anchor Bay just followed up on our first exclusive about their acquisition and subsequent DVD release of the Norwegian slasher film Cold Prey with a new exclusive about what will be on it!
Uncle Creepy just phoned in with some interesting news straight from the Halloween: 30 Years of Terror convention in Pasadena, CA.
The highly anticipated documentary about all things Jason Voorhees, His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th, is finally all cut and ready to roll out for fans! We got a heads up today that the documentary will be premiering at the upcoming 2008 Starz Denver Film Festival as part of the festival’s celebration of soon-to-be classics, The Watching Hour.
Those sickos over at Arrow in the Head got their hands on the trailer for Rob Schmidt’s The Alphabet Killer, coming our way soon from Anchor Bay, and all you have to do is scroll down a bit to feast thine eyes upon it!

Movie posters have become a lost art form. Remember back in the Eighties when even the smallest productions like Mortuary or The Boogens had great poster art? Decades later all we usually get are the floating heads of teens looking pensive, but every now and again we get a good one. Better yet, we have an exclusive look at a really good one for you!
Last week we gave you all the news that Anchor Bay had acquired the Norwegian snowboarding slasher film Cold Prey for release in the U.S. Today the Bay boys sent us over a great look at the DVD’s cover, which you can dig on your right!
Fritt Vilt, also known as Cold Prey (review), is a Norwegian snowboarding slasher that I think should pique the interests of many readers. And thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay we'll soon have the opportunity to see for ourselves!
Dead Space: Downfall (pre-order), the story linking us to the events that occur in EA's new survival game, is shaping up to be one hell of an animated feature, and we've got a new clip to prove it!
To be honest, Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer was a surprise. Mixing horror with comedy and Robert Englund doesn't always pay off, but for me the only real flaw Brooks had was in the pacing. So, will we get to see director Jon Knautz tighten things up with a sequel? Why, yes!
Rob Schmidt’s The Alphabet Killer has been sitting in limbo for so long, I had almost forgotten about it. Lucky for us Anchor Bay never did, though, as Fangoria learned today that the label has named Schmidt’s Wrong Turn follow-up for distribution.
