Director C.M. Downs dropped us a line with an update on Fetch, the new feature he's working on for DrippingDead Films. Casting is now complete for the film, which was written by Trent Haaga and is gearing up to commence principal photography on January 9th in Easton, Kansas.
The first featurette from Trap, writer/director Jason Horton's follow-up to Edges of Darkness, just showed up online; and it offers an at times funny behind-the-scenes look at low budget movie-making for your pre-Thanksgiving cravings.
We recently received an update on the upcoming indie suspense thriller entitled Cornered, which is slated for completion in January, 2010. It was written by Hunter G. Williams and Kevin Duane Carson and is described as "a journey through 'the darkness of murder' and into the heart of a serial killer, who will not stop until all the players are killed."
Another one of After Dark's Eight Films to Die For made its presence known today. The news dropped over on the official Facebook Page for The Final, a revenge thriller laced with blood and balls.
When director Gregory Lamberson says "slime", he means it! We just received four new character sheets from Lamberson's upcoming indie goo-fest Slime City Massacre, and can we just say, "Greg, you are one sick fuck!"
Not sure how we missed hearing about the new indie thriller Unrequited, especially since it stars one of the Twilight kids, Michael Welch, but considering he's a human in the Saga rather than a sparkly vamp or a member of the wolf pack, I guess it's understandable. In any event, a trailer landed online today for Unrequited, and we've got a look at it right here.
A bit more video content has come out of this year's AFM, this time for the horror/comedy known as Dahmer Vs. Gacy, which promises to leave blood on the walls and laughs in your belly!
Revenge is a dish best served with your foot up someone's ass. This is especially true for the proverbial kids who cannot take it anymore in the new slasher/revenge flick The Final.
We love when clarification is given. It just makes everything seem a bit saner, ya know? It seems that The Hollywood Reporter didn't have all of its ducks in a row concerning the title switch of Walking Distance to Experimental Activity.
One of these years I have to attend the American Film Market. The great thing about AFM is that it more or less gives me a head's up on the movies I will more than likely be reviewing in the coming year. For example, Legend of the Mountain Witch, a film that looks like a melding of Blair Witch and The Final Terror, a film I can almost guarantee I will be the one at Dread Central reviewing when it arrives on DVD.
The success of Paranormal Activity was bound to change a lot of things. Who knew it would even lead to the change in film title for Mel House's Walking Distance?
This scribe hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Crush Film’s The Bleeding last night at Sunset 5 in Hollywood, CA, and chatted with the film’s co-star and tattoo artist extraordinaire Kat Von D of the reality series "LA Ink". Von D talked up her role as the sexy vampire Vanya in what is her feature film debut, which was directed by Charles Picerni, as well as riffed on the effects required of her.
Another film looking for a 2010 release that looks to ride high on the wave of 2009's ghostly success stories is Richard Ledes' haunting opus Foreclosure. A teaser trailer became available today, and we must admit it's gotten our attention.
And the award for least likely title for a horror film goes to ... Who cares what the movie's called? It stars Sophie Monk, and she's like the finest haul of Halloween candy imaginable! Time for a treat!
