It Came From the Internet!
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.
As mentioned in our coverage of the 2010 Streamy Awards, the first two episodes of “Ghostfacers” – the new original shortform series/brand extension of The CW's Supernatural – is set to premiere Thursday, April 15, on CWTV.com; and now we have a few more details to share.
Never let it be said that we're not a fan's website! With two killer retrospectives under his belt, our newest Dread Central scribe, Chris Haberman, is looking to find out what YOU want to see next! So take a second and let him know! In return for your input we may even send you out some free swag to go along with our undying gratitude.
You don't have to wait a second longer to dig on Kevin Pollak's take on the over-saturation of vampires in the genre with his webseries "Vamped Out". In fact, you can dig it now just by reading on!
On a windy, overcast Sunday afternoon the 2010 Streamy Awards took over the Orpheum Theater in downtown Los Angeles.
Legendary comedian Kevin Pollak isn’t generally thought of as a terrifying person. However, the guy who is known in Hollywood for bringing the funny is now bringing the fear (along with some humor) with his new Babelgum comedy web series “Vamped Out.” “Vamped Out” was conceived by Pollak and Jason Antoon (Minority Report) from a simple joke over lunch.
Anyone familiar with Kevin Pollak's work knows that he has a devilishly dark sense of humor. That's also why we're so jazzed about his latest project, Vamped Out. Excited? Cool! We've got all the whens, wheres, and hows regarding how you can dig on it!
