Just a day after the first still came to light, the trailer for Fruit Chan's take on the Hideo Nakata tale Joyurei, Don't Look Up, has dropped; and it looks insane.
One project we haven't heard a whole hell of a lot about lately is Fruit Chan’s English-language debut, the remake of Hideo Nakata’s Don’t Look Up. Things seem to be moving along nicely though because a still has surfaced that dishes out the violence by the eye-full!
Aside from slow-motion scenes featuring a long-haired kid doing kung fu and muttering about "pancakes", one of the things that really stood out concerning Eli Roth's directorial debut was the great gooey gore featured in the movie. Now LA residents will get a chance to see more of that and then some on the big screen!
Tobe Hooper's under-appreciated slasher opus The Funhouse is a huge favorite here around the Dread Central offices. The flick had it all -- gypsies, sex, good kills, a great location, and most importantly a badass looking monster who wore a Frankenstein's Monster mask until his, um ... unveiling. From our point of view this remake is a no-brainer and it seems as if director Eli Roth feels the same way!
As we told you this past April, Eli Roth has a couple of irons in the fire right now: a feature-length version of the "Thanksgiving" short film from Grindhouse and a big budget sci-fi thriller.
Just yesterday we told you about the looming possibility of Eli Roth's Thanksgiving becoming a feature length movie. Today we heard exclusively from Roth with a couple of more tidbits for you!
Every once in a while things work out like the fans are hoping. It's been almost exactly two years since Grindhouse was released and we were treated to its fake trailers, which included Eli Roth's well received "Thanksgiving", and today we learned that a feature length version could very well become a reality.
All right, so after a couple of days of good updates, I will admit we got a bit slack on our AFM coverage, so I’m going to try and catch you guys up with some of the better promo art that’s been showing up on STYD. First up is Cotton, the religious-themed horror film we first mentioned a few days ago that was produced for Eli Roth about a priest who agrees to have his last performed exorcism documented for prosperity. Dig a tease below; click it for the whole thing.
As this year's AFM rolls on, Variety reports that Studio Canal has picked up the international rights to the Yorkshire Ripper Trilogy, Red Riding, the three-part film being written by Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas penner Tony Grisoni based on the novel series by David Peace.
Nothing beats a hot girl in a Freddy Krueger outfit (maybe it's some Freudian thing), and we at Dread Central saw plenty of 'em when Universal Studios Hollywood held the casting call for "Freddy's Fly Girl Dancers" to kick off the festivities at this year's Halloween Horror Nights.
Been a while since we’ve heard anything about Fruit Chan’s English-language debut, the remake of Hideo Nakata’s Don’t Look Up, but thankfully it’s been moving along nicely since we last told you guys about it.
Okay, by a show of hands ... who is ready for more tourists getting sliced up because they meandered into the waiting clutches of foreign psychos? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

The popular NBC show "Heroes" or its spin-off "Heroes: Origins" don't quite fit into our beloved genre, but Hostel writer/director Eli Roth and Trick 'r Treat writer/director Michael Dougherty sure do!
