First and foremost, it should be noted that writer/producer/ director Adam Green is a film fan. It’s evident in his feature films. It’s evident in his short films. It’s readily apparent when you talk to him.
Kane Hodder is man known for his ability to kill. After playing the unstoppable Jason Voorhees for four films in the legendary Friday the 13th series, Hodder has moved on to star in a number of successful and influential genre and non-genre films. Back in 2006 he returned to the woods to become the maniacal Victor Crowley in Adam Green’s homage to the slasher film, Hatchet.
Exclusive to Dread, here’s a handful of photos from last night’s DVD and Blu-ray release signing for director Adam Green’s Hatchet II, which took place at LA’s house of the macabre, Dark Delicacies (3512 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA).
Tony Todd is, to say the least, an imposing figure. At 6’5”, broad of frame, and with a deep, booming voice, he’s a guy who gets attention. The fact that he’s also a dependable and wholly competent actor makes him all the more impressive.
Despite having only several titles released this week in our beloved genre, some of them are deemed very worthy of our hard-earned dollars.
Writer/director Tom Holland is best known for his work on such genre staples as Fright Night (which he wrote), Child’s Play (which he wrote and directed), as well as his work on films like Thinner, the TV movie The Stranger Within, The Temp and the Masters of Horror episode “We All Scream for Ice Cream.” What many may not know is that before Holland

We all know the MPAA mixes with the horror genre like oil and water, so it was no surprise when we ran a story stating that the MPAA was looking to cast a far more critical eye when it comes to rating films belonging to our beloved genre. But today there's a statement straight from the lion's mouth to suggest otherwise. Do you buy it?
Well, isn't this just another kick in the ass? For decades the MPAA has been screwing with the horror genre, neutering its content, dumbing everything down, and generally slapping it around while violent mainstream cinema goes by unscathed. The double standard is nothing short of ridiculous. We can't have campy flicks with an over-the-top amount of humorous violence; that would be bad for us.
