Never mind Freddy, Jason, and Michael. The story of Belle Gunness is the stuff of real nightmares. Way back at the turn of the 20th Century, she went on a rampage and a half, and to this very day old Belle's known as one of the most prolific female serial killers of all time. Now that, folks, is what we call perfect horror movie fodder!
How far would you go to keep your dream home? That's the question director Pang Ho-Cheung will ask of audiences when his new movie Dream Home comes out later this year. Judging by the stills this film's main character is willing to go pretty damned far!
Whether you're a long-time reader of Dread Central or a brand new one, one feature we have around here that's an all-time favorite is without question Rick Trembles' Motion Picture Purgatory (archive here). The first print collection of Rick's unique brand of film critiquing madness has been available for sale for some time now, and Volume 2 is just around the corner!
Step right up, kids! We got a gaggle of new stills from HBO's epic vampire series "True Blood" for you to sink those incisors straight into. Make sure you wipe your mouth when you're done. We wouldn't want you to waste!
Who doesn't love shows about the things that go bump in the night? What? No, we're not talking about the Playboy channel, you friggin' pervs! We're talkin' about the new sliver of paranormal shivers coming to us courtesy of A&E Network -- "Extreme Paranormal"!
We've seen a lot of stuff over the years. Some bad. Some good. And the rest? They just defy rational explanation. This, my friends, is one of the really strange times when we're at a loss for words. One look at this clip for Big Man Japan (review here), and I think you will be too.
The wonderfully twisted duo who brought us Pathology and the Crank movies, Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, are at it again -- This time with a new film called Gamer starring Gerard Butler, Ludacris, Milo Ventimiglia, Alison Lohman, and Kyra Sedgwick. Curious? We've got the goods for ya!
Our man on the scene in Lake Havasu City, Roger Galloway, has reported in again from the set of Piranha 3D, this time with some very cool casting news: It seems everyone's favorite mad scientist, Christopher Lloyd, is joining the project.
As far as I'm concerned, Simon Baker improves just about any project he touches, and the upcoming remake of Jim Thompson's crime novel The Killer Inside Me was already looking pretty great! Baker joins the previously announced Casey Affleck, Bill Pullman, Ned Beatty, and Elias Koteas in the noir thriller.
Get ready for an Asian horror remake that's as unconventional as can be, riddled with things we have never seen before! In The Echo we're just getting more unsuspecting people who put their noses where they shouldn't be and end up being fodder for a lingering curse! Nope. Nothing familiar about that plot at all!
Now this just warms our black little hearts. A couple of weeks ago we told you about the sequel to the remake of The Toolbox Murders, and now just days later the film has a site, a synopsis, a teaser poster, and one of the most badass and violent teaser videos I've seen in years. There's good reason to get excited folks! Praise be the sequel gods!
First Showing.net is all over Cannes and has given us glimpses of the Croisette, the infamous street which studios and prod cos line with ad material for highly anticipated features, and those still seeking distribution for their films.

Dark Castle Entertainment is getting back to serious horror business by turning in yet another remake of a classic William Castle tale, 1965's I Saw What You Did ... And I Know Who You Are. This time with My Bloody Valentine 3D duo Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer reuniting to turn in the frights.
Fans of the Saw franchise, get ready for a slice of coolness. Over on director Kevin Greutert's website, hes posted a list of cast members with photos and a truckload of behind-the-scenes images. Nothing too exciting, but considering the veil of secrecy usually kept over these films, this is pretty neat.
