Howard and Jonathan Ford's The Dead is readying itself for its debut at Austin, Texas' Fantastic Fest on September 24th, and to celebrate the film's Stateside premiere, the third making-of video has reared its flesh-hungry head!
Actor Noah Segan is quickly becoming a genre favorite around these parts what with Cabin Fever 2, Someone's Knocking at the Door, All About Evil, Chain Letter and the disturbing indie hit Deadgirl already under his belt.
“If you want drugs, violence, suspense and lots of sexy people, this movie is for you,” says actress/producer Jennifer Blanc with a smile as she greets me on the set of The Victim – a new backwoods indie thriller that sports some heavy-duty subject matter and one helluva cast.
Filmmaker DM Pelley sent over word regarding the first teaser trailer for his indie production Super Death Kill, an Americanized attempt to recreate the gore-soaked gonzo stylings of extreme Asian cinema in a film about an Asian guy that looks like Johnny Socko meets Blade battling psychos, monsters, and mutant zombies in a futuristic hellscape.
The creative team behind the independent feature horror film Straight on Till Morning is proud to announce that they will be auctioning off a one-line role in their upcoming feature production in support of “Bowling for Boobies”.

First-time filmmaker Joshua Hull doesn’t have a flashy Hollywood story about how he got into writing and directing films. In fact, his ten-year journey to getting his first feature made all began because of some pretty big life changes that would generally knock any normal person flat on his or her proverbial butt.
A few months back Dread Central introduced you to one of our indie filmmakers to watch - Joshua Hull, who had just completed his first feature, Beverly Lane. Now Hull is about to unleash Beverly Lane on audiences in the Midwest, and we’ve got the details right here, including an exclusive look at the brand new one-sheet for the film.

Filming is well under way on Jason Horton's Monsters in the Woods, which promises no CGI -- only rubber suited creatures, and the writer/director was kind enough to send over a couple of new stills featuring members of the film crew that's the target of said monsters. Monsters in the Woods stars Glenn Plummer, Kristian Bernard, Annemarie Pazmino, and Lee Perkins.
Writer-director Jeff Angel dropped us a line looking to put the word out there that a two-minute trailer for his 45-minute short film Pixel is now online. According to Angel, multiple film festivals have rejected the short due to its controversial subject matter.
I don't think you could possibly insult makers of the new micro-budget horror comedy Attack of the Killer Turds by describing their film as shitty. Even if Attack of the Killer Turds turns out to be entertaining, it is still guaranteed to be one of the shittiest movies ever made.
One flick we've had our eyes on for a while now is the new zombie comedy from Matthew Kohnen entitled Aaah! Zombies!!, and in just a few short weeks this baby is coming home for mass consumption!
