Here at Dread we're absolute suckers for haunted mazes and attractions. Last year we saw more than our share of badass parks from Universal's Halloween Horror Nights to Knott's Scary Farm...but one of the stand-outs was Jeff Schiefelbein's jaw-dropping "SAW: The Haunted Attraction" in Orange County, CA.
Halloween is exactly three short months away, which means the evil masterminds behind Halloween Horror Nights are hard at work trying to think of new and different ways to scare the shit out of attendees. This year Jigsaw is waiting; prepare to step into his demented world.
Assuming the role of Dr. Samuel Loomis for Rob Zombie in his two Halloween films has not only introduced the great Malcolm McDowell to a new generation of fans, but it has also cemented his place in horror film history. Now there's a place to go online to celebrate the man's long and illustrious career!
Ever wish you could be in a Saw movie? Me either. Between the convoluted storylines and the fact that nobody sticks around very long, I think it's best to steer clear of that wacky Jigsaw and his uncanny ability to remain twenty steps ahead of his hapless victims. But if you're really ready for more Saw, then Universal's Halloween Horror Nights have got you covered!
About three years ago Synapse Films' Don May, Jr., announced an estimated 45,000 feet of negative outtakes from John Carpenter's Halloween had been discovered. Things feel eerily silent, but today there's been a bit of an update, although it's not the kind we've been hoping for.
So the rumor mill keeps on churning concerning Halloween 2, the sequel to Rob Zombie's re-imagining of the once great franchise; and it seems like RZ could be coming back for another round of Myers madness.
Uncle Creepy just phoned in with some interesting news straight from the Halloween: 30 Years of Terror convention in Pasadena, CA.
Creepy just checked in with us from the Halloween 30 Years of Terror convention going down in Pasadena, CA with some news direct from Malek Akkad about the sequel to Rob Zombie’s Halloween!
It’s not much, but it’s something … just got word from one of our sources close to the film that Warner Bros. is finally test screening Trick ‘r Treat for audiences! I’m still not 100% on how the test screening process works, but it’s still a good sign that they’re trying to figure out what to do with it.

First, sorry for the lack of DVD lists these past few weeks, I’ve been hellaciously busy. Which is saying something considering how easy this list is now! But here you go, your list of horror DVDs for Tuesday, October 21st, 2008! Hope you have a Blu-ray player!
Another new title has been added to this year’s Screamfest LA lineup, one that horror fans have been waiting over a year to finally see for themselves: Mike Dougherty’s Trick ‘r Treat! Yesterday I got a postcard in the mail with Friday, October 10th, listed as the premiere date for the film at Mann’s Chinese 6 Theatre, which means it's opening the festival in style!
Pit of Horror and Dread Central regretfully announce that, due to unforeseen circumstances Fear Fest 3 is being rescheduled to February 20th-22nd, 2009. Thank you to everyone who was planning to attend and we apologize for any inconvenience. We will update everyone on the NEW and IMPROVED guest list as it solidifies.
In August of last year Uncle Creepy and myself sat in an empty theatre with our jaws hung open as we experienced Rob Zombie's Halloween (review). We had just been assaulted by the f-word and Loomis' crazy magical car summoning abilities and hoped to never talk about it again.
