Dance of the Dead
Well, another Screamfest is behind us yet again! Man it seems like these things take forever to get here and then are gone in the blink of an eye. This year’s winners have been selected and instead of droning on about how special they all are in their own way, as I am want to do, just dig on the list below!
When the announcement came that Ghost House Pictures was releasing its own line of edgy horror films under a new label called Ghost House Underground, we were pretty intrigued. Could they get away from their usual ultra-shiny PG-13 flavored spookfests long enough to successfully drop some real horror on us? Well, you're about to find out.
IGN made me proud today as they posted a "restricted" trailer for Gregg Bishop's prom themed zombie picture, Dance of the Dead.
On the night of the big High-School Prom, the dead rise to eat the living, and the only people who can stop them are the losers who couldn't get dates to the dance.

Seems that Ghost House Underground is serious about its horror, if the company's initial lineup (which includes the monster horror movie Dark Floors, among others) is any indication, and today they’ve announced two more titles for direct-to-DVD release.
Another poster for Gregg Bishop’s upcoming teens vs. the undead flick, Dance of the Dead, showed up on IMP Awards today; and while it’s not as amusing as the last one, it certainly does heap on the praise!
Last year we brought you news of a fresh zombie film being directed by Gregg Bishop, which featured the undead feasting on teens during a homecoming dance (“The Dead Can Dance” – May 2007). The artwork for the film back then really wasn't much to look at, but today we got an eyeful.
Yesterday we got official word from Warnrer Bros that Raw Feed entry Otis would be making its premiere at this year’s South by Southwest festival, running March 7th-15th. But Otis is just one of many new horror entries making their debut, as we found out today when the official lineup was announced.
Let’s see, we’ve had zombies at the mall (multiple times), zombies in the woods, zombies in the streets and even underwater zombies; I guess it's inevitable that zombies would eventually make their way to a homecoming dance. The living dead feasting on the flesh of teenagers? Yes, please.
I love zombie films more than I probably should. Something about the rotting flesh eating bastards just brings a huge smile to my face. Especially when the movie is done right.
