It’s been awfully quiet from the Clive Barker camp on Lionsgate’s decision to put Midnight Meat Train (review), the first of many planned adaptations of Barker’s Books of Blood stories, into second-run dollar theaters instead of giving it a real theatrical release.
Monster Mania 11 is just around the corner (August 22-24th to be precise) in Cherry Hill, NJ, so it’s time to show you what Dread Central is bringing to the table ... physically more than metaphorically! Every Monster Mania, Dread sets up shop just within the show's entrance to dish out free swag to the attendees from companies cranking out the bloody best and beyond. Here’s what’s on tap...
Ha-ha, vindication! I demanded more Blood Drive posters from Lionsgate this year, and they cowered at my might, churning out not just another poster, but a badass poster to boot! You mess with the Butane, you get the horns, friends!
Lionsgate has put out word of a new horror DVD release titled Chill they have scheduled for November 4th, because what better time to release a new horror movie than five days after Halloween?
Just last week we heard that Repo! The Genetic Opera (review) was going to start some kind of continuing webisodes of behind the scenes videos. This week saw the first, and with that the flood gates started to open.
Man, Lionsgate better not be cheapening out on us this year and only doing one design for their annual Saw Blood Drive. Yahoo! Movies got a look at the first poster for the drive, which I sincerely hope is not the last. One thing I look forward to every year is what kind of sexy nurses in sexy outfits they’re using to promote giving until it hurts.
General society has a tendency to judge the horror community unfairly. Sure, some of us look a little different or, hell, even act a little differently, but in all honesty this small sect is comprised of some of the most loving and passionate individuals that I have had the pleasure of meeting. When we suffer a tragedy or are dealt an injustice, we rally around each other.
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!
