Undoubtedly the modern independent horror landscape would be a very different place had Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz not taken a gamble on making a horror film in the 1980s. Kaufman, seeing the potential to reach horror fans everywhere, unleashed The Toxic Avenger in 1985, and the horror world has been a very different place ever since Toxie hit the streets.

Now this is some award show news we are definitely happy to report! Black Swan took home four major prizes from the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards.
While we love covering horror movies of all shapes and sizes, the staff at Dread Central has always fostered a deep-rooted appreciation for the independent horror movement that has been alive and kicking for over 90 years now.
It's no secret we're big champions of indie films at Dread Central, and one we're keeping a close eye on is writer/director Dave Zagorski's Killing Brooke, which he calls "an intense thriller that twists the survival horror genre on its head." To keep the momentum for the film going, he's provided us with some new stills and a clip. Synopsis:
A short while ago we ran a story on Jacob Cooney's short film "The Frolic", and as if to prove that the only way to get ahead in this business is to work your ass off, Cooney dropped us a line with some early details on the not just one or two new projects he working on, but rather the SIX films the writer/director/producer is in various stages of development and involvement with.
