Looking to pick up your copy of The Haunting in Connecticut (review here) on DVD or Blu-ray but feel like something would be missing ... like say some autographs from star Kyle Gallner, producers Daniel Farrands and Andy Trapani, and director Peter Cornwell? Well, if you're in or near the Burbank area, Dark Delicacies can help you fix all that!
The third day of Fantasia we woke up late, primed for a weekend full of incredible screenings. First up was the Tremors meets Eight Legged Freaks giant bug invasion flick Infestation.
It’s been an insomnia inducing start to Fantasia’s thirteenth year. The opening night screenings had no noteworthy horror entries, so Paul and I spent the evening reconnecting with festival regulars, watched some non-genre movies, and plotted the next three weeks of cinematic mayhem.
Wizard World set its geek ray on KILL this past June 19th-21st and blasted all over Philadelphia for another year. With the cancellation of two of their conventions, we entered this year's show hoping for a beefed up presence. Immediately, the absence of Marvel, DC, and Diamond Select was apparent and worrying. But that didn't seem to affect the mood of the fans.
The UK's most amazing horror film festival Film 4 FrightFest has released what could very well be one of the best horror line-ups we've seen ever for its latest show taking place August 27th - August 31st, brimming with films we've been salivating over Stateside!
To add to our coverage of the Grace screening at USC, a highlight reel of the event showcasing a good deal of audience reaction has surfaced, and it is just begging to be seen!
Disappointed that you missed last week's screening of Grace at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts? Well, if you're available this Sunday, June 21st, you can see two other highly regarded indies: William Malone's Parasomnia and Jennifer Lynch's Surveillance.
On Friday, June 12th, USC’s School of Cinematic Arts hosted Paul Solet’s startling debut feature film Grace (review here) for a packed house. In fact, there was not an empty seat in Norris Hall, and there were even people camped out on the floor throughout the screening.
Sean "The Butcher" Smithson here. Sometime scribe for these here pages at Dread Central, sometime horror host, sometime jungle explorer, sometime exorcist, even sometime astronaut. But this time I'm here reporting on what it's like to help organize events and program films for a horror convention. Or at least, what it was like for me at this particular con, CryptiCon Seattle 2009.
There is so much great horror fiction out on the fringe these days that there’s literally something for every niche. And if you don’t feel like limiting yourself to any one subgenre, you can get your hands on some groovy anthology collections that pack a variety of twisted genre tales for your reading pleasure.
Is there any more enduring horror icon than the vampire? Sure, zombies have their fans, but overall vamps seem to rule the day. So it makes perfect sense they finally have a convention all their own: Vampire-Con, running August 14th–16th, 2009, in Hollywood, CA.
The date is the 31st of May, 2009. Let me just say this first and foremost; I go to a shit ton of conventions. Shit ton as in a whole lot of conventions. And believe it or not, I've never done a write-up on any of them. I've filmed plenty of videos at conventions and talked about them on podcasts and what have you, but never written an article about one.
No, it’s not Microsoft’s follow-up to Windows Vista – it’s the 2009 Crypticon being held at the Seattle Center June 5th through June 7th!
Do you realize it has now been a full 24 hours since we've had a new article related to Twilight? I know all you hardcore Twilight fans need your Twilight fix. Perhaps you should all get together on a boat, take a trip up to Alaska, and along the way visit the actual Forks, Washington: the quaint little perpetually overcast town that Edward and Bella call home.
If you live in or around the London, England, area, then you have a chance to participate in the world’s biggest zombie walk, which is being filmed during The Big Chill music festival for Chris Boyle's mockumentary I Spit on Your Rave.
