Conan. What is best in life? To star in the remakes. See lens flares driven before you. And to wear the power color, orange! We know at least a handful of people who will find that opening sentence as funny as we do. In any event, Marcus Nispel's 3D Conan the Barbarian remake hits theatres this weekend, and we've got your verdict for you.
Our video interview series for Marcus Nispel's Conan the Barbarian continues today with the star of the show, Jason Momoa. When it comes to taking on an iconic character like Conan, you need a true badass to breathe life into one of the most popular warriors of all time, and he more than fits the bill.
In the upcoming Conan the Barbarian, actress and action veteran Rachel Nichols (Star Trek, GI Joe) portrays Tamara, a pureblood descendent of the Sorcerers of Acheron who becomes an accomplice and eventual love interest to the titular character (played by "Game of Thrones" star Jason Momoa).

For Marcus Nispel's latest project, Conan the Barbarian, the director decided to approach this reimagining a bit differently: Rather than remaking John Milius' iconic 1982 movie that introduced the world to a then-up-and-coming Arnold Schwarzenegger, Nispel opted to rely more on the 1932 Conan short story series by Robert E. Howard.
Voltage Pictures today released some early artwork for director Marcus Nispel's latest horror flick Backmask, and as always we're right here to get it into your hot little hands. Or eyes. Or whatever. Announced at Cannes, read on for the plot details of this Steven Schneider (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Lords of Salem, The Bay) produced film. Synopsis
He tackled The Texas Chainsaw Masscare. He bungled Friday the 13th. He's treading more sacred ground with Conan the Barbarian, and now director Marcus Nispel is looking to put his patented orange-colored lens flare laden stamp on yet another horror flick - Backmask. Well at least it isn't a remake.
Yeah, not really horror, we know, but Conan has been known to fight monsters, giant creatures, zombies, ghosts, witches, etc. Besides it's brought to us by Marcus Nispel and his power color orange!
I've made my feelings about the Friday the 13th remake abundantly clear by now, but since it's hitting Blu-ray and DVD on June 16th, all my venom is bubbling back up to the surface. Will the new cut with the added footage do anything to change the minds of spurned fans like myself? I think that depends on what it is that didn't we see ... like more little Jason for instance.
Done screwing with our favorite slasher franchises for the time being, Marcus Nipel is in talks to offer his lens flare laden slant on yet another famous horror tale, The Last Voyage of Demeter, for Phoenix Pictures.
In a good turn of events for R-rated horror, Platinum Dunes' reboot (the new, classier, way to say remake) of Friday the 13th has scared itself up some big box office this weekend, raking in an estimated 42 million, plus!
Here at Dread Central we have lots of different personalities. As a result, we have mega differences in opinion too. When a big movie like Friday the 13th comes around, sometimes the dissidence is so great that we need two reviews. Such is the case now.
