It Came From the Internet!
Even though Troma Entertainment's Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead had a relatively small theatrical run at around three hundred theatres nationwide, it still managed to garner itself a #1 per-theater average. To say thank you to fans, the full movie has hit online, and you can now watch it for free! Take that, all you cheapskates out there!
It's been a while since we've been treated to an edition of Joe Lynch's Body Count on G4's "Attack of the Show", but he's back and ready to dish his latest picks from the gory side of the street.
A couple of weeks back a group of lovably loony horror fans blessed us with a pretty damned good look at some of horror's bloodiest moments. Now the gang is back with a whole new beast - a loving look back at The Monster Squad.
There are a million questions we have about Popeye, the sailor. We know that his nemesis was named Bluto when he was fat and Brutus when he was muscle bound -- but were they the same person? Then there's the oddly misshapen Olive Oyle - Anorexic or inspiration for Stephen King's Zelda from Pet Sematary? And how about Popeye himself? He spent a lot of time fighting off sea hags, sea monsters, and goons successfully thanks to his trusty can of spinach, but what if some of those supernatural beings rubbed off on him?
How many times have you found yourself in this situation? You're just hanging out and watching TV when all of a sudden *BOOM* zombies come pouring in through your living room window. Happens to us all the friggin' time and now we are no longer getting caught with our pants down (depending on what we're watching on said TV of course).
Anyone who knows George A. Romero knows that when it comes to movie making and special effects, the man loves to tinker, always reinventing himself and his movies. Another thing about George is that he's always looking to find young talent who know how to work (and work cheap) with the maximum results!
Every so often a couple of young filmmakers come along with no money and nothing but passion to make something really friggin' cool and knock it out of the park. This is one of those times.
A popular thing on YouTube right now is to take scenes from television or movies, swap the music, and/or re-edit it to completely change the tone of the piece. Perhaps you've already seen a horror soundtrack turn the opening of "Diff'rent Strokes" into "Disturbing Strokes" and transform Mary Poppins into Scary Poppins. None of them are quite as hilariously unsettling as what happens to the lovable alien ALF in this remix.
Here on Dread Central we spend hours each day making sure you guys are way on top of everything scary, violent, and generally badass. Today our journey's led us to a film aficionado website that isn't afraid to get a little sticky.
Few things inspire true WTF-ness quite like Elves, the 1990 chiller starring a chain-smoking Dan Haggerty as an alcoholic ex-cop turned department store Santa trying to prevent Neo-Nazis from completing their diabolical plan to spawn a satanic elf that must mate with a purebred Aryan virgin by Christmas Eve in order to procreate Adolf Hitler's half-human/half-elf master race that will conquer the world.
Since the new Nightmare on Elm Street is hitting the screen soon, I thought I would do something a little different for you guys. I spent a few hours digging up some images inspired by our favorite dream demon.
District 9 was one of the biggest surprises of last year, and while we all wait patiently for a sequel, we now have the chance to see what Wikus van der Merwe (Sharlto Copley) has been up to. Turns out he's got an all new problem on his hands.
Thanks for watching! We hope you had time to watch it, grab it from us, and share it on DVD with your friends. We even have artwork for you to save and use! Dig it below!
Imagine if you will a Bollywood version of Jaws filled with musical numbers, violent action sequences, and shark attacks featuring what looks like a toy shark bought from a dollar store attacking toy boats that also look like something out of a toy box. Imagine no more - Aatank exists!
A few weeks ago we told you about a cool idea coming from our friends at FearWerx: a live monster movie marathon webcast directly from the Horrorhound Weekend in Indianapolis. It was originally planned as a one-time thing to celebrate the 100th birthday of the monster movie with dozens of hosts including Elvira, George Romero, and Troma's Lloyd Kaufman. Well, it seems like the event was huge enough that they haven't stopped.
