In anticipation of the long overdue Blu-ray and DVD release of The Collector, Vivendi Entertainment has provided us with a couple of exclusive images from the upcoming slasherfest.
With the seventh entry in Lionsgate’s Saw franchise currently shooting in Toronto, Canada in preparation for its October 22, 2010 theatrical release, Dread caught up with the flick’s co-scribe Patrick Melton to chat about the film as well as the other projects he and long-time collaborator Marcus Dunstan are working on.
If you want to purchase The Collector, you'll have to wait until April 6th. If you want to rent The Collector from Netflix, Redbox, Movie Gallery, or any other video chain or local mom and pop rental store, you'll also have to wait until April 6th. Or you can go to Blockbuster right now and rent it.
Hell has apparently frozen over. The official specs and art for Marcus Dunstan's The Collector have finally come to light, and the movie will be hitting retailers on April 6th from Genius Products and Vivendi Entertainment. Color us amazed!
The first casting news from the already controversial seventh entry into the Saw franchise, Saw VII in 3D, has hit the net and it yields no shockers. Yet, that is.
A while back we reported that Marcus Dunstan's The Collector wouldn't be getting a home video release until April of 2010. That seemed extremely unrealistic as we live in an age in which theatre to DVD turnaround time is usually a matter of a couple of months. Today an official date has been announced ...
Now mind you this is just rumor for now, but if proven true, it will probably be one of the longest theatrical to DVD transitions ever.
Hot off the box office disappointment of Saw VI, Lionsgate is surely eager to cash in on the fast-sinking ship that is the Saw franchise. So eager, in fact, that they’ve announced a release date for their 3D sequel.
I almost feel bad for Saw VI. The flick delivered on all counts; yet, it performed really badly at the box office. We can only hazard a guess that the damage done by the abysmal Part V left audiences so cold that the new film was something they weren't going to bank on this year. David Hackl, director of Part V, now has a date for redemption with his new flick Saw VII 3D.
Yep. Even though Saw VI is just days away, we're already talking about Saw VII. Hard to believe but true nonetheless. At the Saw VI press conference today (look for a full report soon), producer Mark Berg spoke a bit about how they're handling the 3D process for the next entry in Jigsaw's long list of games.
Dread Central (in this case scribes Heather Wixson and yours truly, Sean D.) hit the red carpet for the Chiller-Eyegore Awards and opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA, and brought back some ocular candy, including video interviews, from the rather boisterous festivities that you can see below.
As we told you just a couple of days ago (previous story here), a number of television networks have been vying for Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton's pilot script for "Clive Barker's Hotel." It now appears that ABC has emerged on top of the fray.
A couple of weeks ago during our coverage of The Collector premiere, we told you briefly about Clive Barker teaming up with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton to create a new horror TV series. We couldn't say much about it then, but now the cat is officially out of the bag!
Know what's nifty? Seeing a movie ... liking it ... and then getting the opportunity to chat with the filmmakers. Such is the case this Wednesday as the creative forces behind The Collector (review here), director Marcus Dunstan and writer Patrick Melton, hit Facebook to meet the fans!
Within the next few days we'll be taping our Dinner for Fiends mashup of Comic-Con, Orphan, and the newest kid on the block, The Collector. Before we get in our last words about Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan's latest slice-and-dice endeavor, we thought we'd give the cast and crew a chance to put out a few words of their own.
