How do you make a video game out of the Saw franchise? Would it be a series of mini-games where someone must disarm traps in order to save others/themselves? Could it be a detective game, like Condemnded, where you must piece together clues in order to track down Jigsaw? Word on the street says this last one may be the most likely.
UPDATE: We found more theatre listings that include the eastern half of the country, so maybe it's not as bad as we initially thought. See below for the full list, and check your local listings, too, as this may not be everything.
At some point over the last couple of days, the first teaser for Saw V finally showed up online, not in some crappy taped-at-Comic-Con YouTube format, but rather right here on Dread Central!
A Saw V clip is spinning right now at Comic-Con, and we've got the description of it right here! First, Buz chimed in saying the trap shown in the fourth Saw sequel's teaser was a "glass box thing stuck on a dude's head." OK, that as descriptive as we're going to get, I guess, but Buz sure made me laugh with that text message. Anyway, on to the clip...
A sharp eyed reader named David pointed out a new video floating around on YouTube. Originally discovered by 24fps, this is the opening scene of Clive Barker's Midnight Meat Train (review), which gives us a look at the suspense so many will miss out on due to the film's impending limited release.
Lionsgate sure does enjoy moving its films around lately, but there was one title we were positive would stay in its place, My Bloody Valentine.
When I saw that Lionsgate was releasing a movie on DVD called Oversexed Rugsuckers from Mars, my immediate reaction was something along the lines of "How have I not heard of this film before now?" Actually, my first thought was "How is this not a Troma movie?" But after that I wondered how I had never heard of this 1989 movie.
STYD reports that the MPAA has ruled on a rating for J.T. Petty's Western creature feature The Burrowers. I am happy to say that the pic has received the coveted "Restricted" rating! Now, the only issue is that Lionsgate still has not announced a release date or even the year in which we can see The Burrowers. What the hell?
Saw V ... who knew we'd actually see so many sequels to a small and twisted horror film that surfaced back in 2004? In the sequels that followed, we've seen a real split between horror fans who like and dislike the franchise. Will the fourth sequel bring them together in happy harmony?
For those of us stuck in the States and missing out on the world premiere of Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) at Fantasia this week, there's a lot of time to kill between now and its November 7th release date.
Now that Darren Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) finally has a solid release date, November 7th, 2008, the director is getting as much info as possible out there for those of you who can’t help but be interested in what the man has created.
Lionsgate has done it again ... created an incredibly effective, incredibly creepy and incredibly badass teaser poster for Saw V. Damn them, I want to get sick of this series already, but they just keep sucking me back in!
