Mark Hartley's Not Quite Hollywood was one of my favorite films of last year for the hilarious and fascinating peek it provided into the Australian exploitation genre. And now Hartley has his sights set on another rich and exploitative location: the Philippines.
Trembles is again taking us a bit off the beaten path this week with his latest MPP entry, the documentary Chicken Hawk: Men Who Love Boys. Interestingly enough, as I was doing a little research on the flick, I found a site that categorized it as "Educational, Horror". So I guess it is worthy of a mention on Dread Central!
Filmmaker Frank H. Woodward's new 21st century themed horror documentary, The Splat Pack, will soon be available for your mass consumption, and to celebrate the release of this slice of meaty goodness, we have an exclusive clip for you. Why? Because you are badasses and we love you.

Fantasia 2010 is in full swing, and one of the films that has already screened is the mostly well received documentary Herschell Gordon Lewis - The Godfather of Gore. Dread Central's favorite cartoonist Rick Trembles is also a resident of Montreal and a regular attendee of the annual film fest so of course he had to weigh in with his 2 cents on the film.
Come this October Shout! Factory is going to give us another reason to scream as it releases filmmaker Robert Galluzzo's definitive documentary about the Psycho franchise - The Psycho Legacy. To celebrate this momentous occasion, we have a second trailer ready to win not only your mother's heart but the rest of her corpse as well.
Lock your doors and turn off the lights!

We don't know about you guys, but we're still broken up over the passing of Paul Naschy around the Dread Central offices. The man was a true legend in his field so it's no surprise that someone has made a documentary about his life and times.

Horror movies in the Nineties had gone horribly awry with the exception of a few classics that slid out under the radar.
