It's hard to imagine a scenario more frightening than being abducted, but how about one where you watch someone you care about being abducted right in front of you? Or, even worse, when you are already investigating a kidnapping and know just how dangerous the situation is?
The first bit of casting news is here for Haunted, Victor Salva's latest fright flick to go before cameras, and we've got the details for you hot and fresh. Dig it!
On Thursday, September 29th, the 2011 Shriekfest Film Festival kicks off in Los Angeles. The festival annually celebrates the best filmmakers working on the independent horror scene, and to get you indie horror-loving fans out there ready for this year's films, Dread Central will be bringing you a series of exclusive Q&A interviews with many of Shriekfest's featured filmmakers over the next week or so.
We don't go nuts and fire up the Dread Central media machine for every trailer that comes our way. But (and here's a hint to filmmakers) when we see one featuring a killer in a disturbing looking drama mask, slutty hot chicks, and a guy getting his face basically torn off, we tend to take notice. Blood Widow is an upcoming indie horror film that promises to go old school for us. And isn't that how we like it?
We heard from writer/director David Campion today with the early word on his upcoming project with co-writer/co-director Ben Simpson, Woodfalls, which they and their producer Julia Volonts of Half Man Half Spam are hoping will be an artful, shocking, emotional thriller that will bring something new to the exploitation sub-genre. Read on for more details!
The good (and slightly crazed) folks behind David Keith's upcoming horror comedy Attack of the Herbals have launched a brand new website and blessed the online world with a spiffy little clip montage! Dig it!
No, Emerald Lagoon, Swamphead, and Mold! is not the title of a new Bill Cosby comedy in the vein of Mother, Jugs, and Speed. They’re three new very low budget monster comedies about a gillman swamp monster, a zombiefied head on the attack, and mold-covered zombies.
Business is moving forward for Killer Holiday with the addition of a new well traveled horror musical score writer. Kurt Oldman will join the project and will set the ambiance with his musical talents.
Just like every year, Screamfest L.A. is shaping up to be the horror film fest of 2011 with all manner of insanity planned, including the world premiere of Eric England's Madison County!
A new one-sheet for Gilbert Chan's 23:59 has arrived online, and as always we are there to scoop it up and deliver it right to your front door ... er ... monitor! iPad? iPhone? You get the idea. Dig it!
"...and I would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn’t for you meddling kids!. Just how many episodes of "Scooby Doo" ended with that line? And did anyone ever wonder why the criminals were able to bamboozle the entire town and police squad with their schemes only to be foiled by a dog and four stoner kids who rolled into town two days earlier in a van that had to smell like malted hops, bong resin and dog farts? We’ve got some info on a new movie where the meddling kids don't necessarily fare so well.
This Saturday night’s Syfy original movie Morlocks puts a new spin on the subterranean subhumanoids from the dark future of H.G. Wells’ The Time Machine, and we have a few clips to share from the film. Even after watching these snippets, I’m still not sure what exactly they are, but they certainly don’t look like the albino apemen we’re accustomed to.
We know you're used to the finer things in life, Orange County, California: the beautiful weather, the bodacious babes, the glitz and glamour. Well, there's a horror fest on the horizon that is going to strip away all the beauty that is Orange County and bring a little darkness to the area. Say hello to the Everybody Dies Horror Film Festival.
