It was only a matter of time. Here's the deal, and we're just going to have to accept it: If a movie is even slightly good or has even the tiniest of cult followings, Hollywood is going to remake it. There's just no doubt of this anymore.
An American Werewolf in London is starting up where it left off in a planned screening of the film in London, UK. Curzon Cinemas is making this more than just a screening; included will be live music and booze in their 'Slaughtered Lamb' themed bar, special guests will do the introductions, and lots of other little things will be included in the festivities.
The Italian horror site Splatter Container recently sat down with Zombie Honeymoon helmer David Gerboe to discuss the long-rumored sequel and ended up learning that none other than John Landis will be executive producing it!
Is it wrong that as soon as I hear the name Vivid, all I can think of is the adult DVD distributor of the same name? No? Good! Moving on ... Variety announced yesterday that UK production house Red Sparrow is launching its first film, the $1.2 million Vivid, which will be helmed by Reg Traviss.
Now this is the kind of news I just love reporting. Other than my overall adoration for all things horror, it's news like this that makes me happy to have the job I have, allowing me to share this kind of information with our community.

This week’s Fear Itself episode promises to be the best one yet, if for no other reason than because it’s helmed by An American Werewolf in London director John Landis! It’s called “In Sickness & In Health”, and Landis intro’d a clip of the show just for Dread Central readers! Check it out below, and catch Fear Itself every Thursday night at 10/9c on NBC!
We just got a heads up about a cast interview that’s online for the next episode of Fear Itself, which is John Landis’ “In Sickness and in Health”. The story follows a bride who, on her wedding day, gets the unfortunate news that her husband-to-be is a serial killer. I wish someone woulda warned me!
NBC's horror anthology Fear Itself kicks off in just a couple of days, and in all honesty I hope it does well for the sake of the horror genre. Without boobs and extreme violence to rely on, there's a good chance decent stories may actually be conjured up.
We’ve been salivating to find out when and where we’d finally be able to see Paul Davis’ exhaustive documentary Beware the Moon: Remembering An American Werewolf in London. A Blu-Ray release? Film festivals? Screener copy in my mailbox (yes please)?
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from Paul Davis, the man behind the American Werewolf in London retrospective Beware the Moon, but suddenly we got an e-mail from the man yesterday with some very good news...
Horror. That’s what it’s all about. So why the hell would the people behind the upcoming anthology series Fear Itself decide that the guy who remade The Fog deserves another shot at scaring us? In my opinion he should be relegated to romantic comedies and movies about kids dancing their way up from the slums for the rest of his career.
We'll make this short and simple: G4 got the exclusive trailer for NBC's horror anthology Fear Itself, which will start airing next month on June 5th. Click here for the episode guide, and look below for the trailer. G4 may have more exclusive goods on the way later today, so check back soon!
Creepy checked in from the Weekend of Horrors again sometime throughout the night while I was resting, and sent along the pic you see below; Anchor Bay’s packaging for Masters of Horror: Season 2! Though I appreciated the “crypt case” Season One came in, this does seem far more appropriate. How they’ll be fitting the discs in there is, thankfully, not for me to figure out ... No word on a solid street date for it, either. Keep it here for more news from the Weekend of Horrors soon!
