Who knows what horrors can be wrought by The Millennium Bug? We're not talking about that sissy Y2K stuff, folks! Although we do fondly remember when people were all but hiding under their tables because computer programmers lacked the foresight to teach their mega-machines to actually count! Ah, good times! Where were we? Oh yes -- the new indie creature feature The Millennium Bug!
The loss of life can be all the more tragic when the reason behind a loved one being taken from us is absolutely senseless. Such is the case with up and coming actor/producer John McGarr.
Since movies have become way easier to make, finding quality indie horror films is getting to be quite the task. Yet, every once in a while it looks as if a gem is truly coming our way. This is one of those times. Are you ready to enter the Underground?

One flick we've been talking about for a while now is Dana Mennie's werewolf driven love story Dark Moon Rising. Don't let the love story part fool ya, though; the movie features Sid Haig fighting werewolves! That premise alone is enough for me to get my ass into a seat to watch it.
If there's anybody out in the indie world that sends us updates on their projects more often than the multi-talented Phil Nichols, I don't know who it is. Today he sent over a new batch of stills from Vampire Diaries Renfield, but best of all, they include the first shot of one of the creatures Nichols' Facades FX is doing for the film.
Nothing tickles our fancy (or our naughty bits for that matter) quite like slime does. It's just so sticky! Bio-Slime, however, you may want to see a doctor about. Don't believe us? Check out the final teaser trailer for the flick!
Lizzie Borden took an axe, and gave her mother forty whacks. When she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one. And now we might get to see each one of them in gory detail in the new indie flick that's on the way entitled Lizzie: The Movie.
For most of us, other than the spooky ghost who came out of the well in the American Ring films, the only other unnerving bit of the flick was Naomi Watts' son's constant freakiness. Well, the actor who played the little weird kid, David Dorfman, is all grown up now (wow, does time fly), and he's already attending his prom. Of course murderous mayhem ensues.
It's Saturday, March 13, 2010, when Dread arrives to the snowy set of director Elise Robertson's horror feature Donner Pass. Penned by Scott Adams and executive produced by Mouncey Ferguson, who financed the film, the independent feature tells the story of an unlucky group of teens who, while on a ski trip in the mountains around Lake Tahoe, encounter George Donner, an entity with a taste for human flesh, and unfortunately for the group, it's for their own.
For as long as I can remember, the one thing my mom always taught me was to never talk to strangers, especially strangers with creepy vans. Looks like there are a few people out there that still need to learn that lesson as producer Detroit Riot Productions today announced its partnership with visual FX veterans Almost Human for the upcoming indie horror film Creep Van.
Just yesterday I told you about Sickle from writer-director Robert Conway. Not one to rest on his laurels, Conway already has a second film in post-production, Necro Wars. A zombie apocalypse flick with a twist: The hero is a newly zombified soldier forced to choose which side he will fight on.
Blast those scientists always meddling in God's domain. Have none of them read Frankenstein? Now it's stem cells giving rise to an unhappy undead abomination. What have scream queen Tiffany Shepis and Louis (brother of Costas) Mandylor wrought upon us with The Prometheus Project?
Many years ago Richard Diaz started posting on horror message boards along with myself and many others. He was affectionately known to his online buddies as "Gory", and he traveled with us from Fangoria to the place that shall not be named (we wish them well) and now finally to here on Dread Central. His love of horror is pure and as evident as can be, and it's with great pleasure and honor that we debut the trailer for his first indie horror film. Get ready for a look at Distortion!
Even though there are still three weeks to go before Poison Apple Films wraps up production on Vampire Diaries Renfield (for which they've been providing r
