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.
The Dances With Films festival in Los Angeles is one of the last few real "indie" fests you'll find these days. That means no big budgets, no name actors, just raw undiscovered talent.
If EA Games have taught gamers anything it's that "it's in the game." For horror fans said it is recognized as demons, creatures, blood, gore, and terror. So what does the house that Madden built have in store for genre lovers in the coming months? Let's take a look at a sampling of their E3 line-up!
Ever since the early Atari days Activision has been pumping out quality games. Join us as we take a quick look at what the software giant has announced and in store for genre fans at the upcoming E3 show in June!
With the big-daddy of video game shows, E3, just around the corner, Sega of America announced what they'll have on tap for us fans of blood, gore, monsters, and weirdness! Let's take a quick look, shall we? From the press release:
The B-Movie Celebration of Shelbyville and Franklin, Indiana, is set to get underway in September, and they've just released the long roll call of films they plan to be showing. It's a doozy! This is a great opportunity to watch some awesome rarely shown titles up on a far larger screen than what's sitting in your living room.
