Rest in Peace: James L. Haggard

Published

James L. Haggard

Usually we reserve our Rest in Peace condolences to celebrities, but this one hit close to home for us. Here at Dread Central we care about our community. It’s you guys who keep us going and allow us to do what we do for a living. That same heartfelt thanks extends to our Box of Dread subscribers.

It has come to our attention that one of our subscribers, James L. Haggard, known to us as “The Walking Dad,” has passed on suddenly at age 36, leaving his wife, Amber, and son, DJ. As you know, funeral costs can be ridiculously high, and for a young couple struggling, when hit with tragedy it can be nightmarish during an already devastating situation.

A donation page has been set up to help with funeral expenses, and since James was one of us… one of you… part of the horror community, we figured it was our duty to tell you about it and see if you could help. If that’s a possibility for you, please click here for the James L. Haggard GoFundMe page. We sincerely hope that this helps lighten the burden.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest condolences to James’ friends and family. You will be missed, sir.

James L. Haggard

James and his wife, Amber

Must-See: Jurassic Park meets The Walking Dead in The Jurassic Dead Trailer

Published

on

“Evil Always Finds a Way…”

I think I have a new must-see movie.

It’s called The Jurassic Dead and is it, duh, part Jurassic Park and part “The Walking Dead” in that it features a T-Rex that turns those it attacks into zombies!

Talk about a winning premise. Personally, I’d love to see more quality filmmakers take on films like this. After all, it was a f*cking blast to see Mike Mendez’s Big-Ass Spider.

Anyhow, today we have The Jurassic Dead‘s first trailer and poster for, not only your own viewing pleasure, but I’m sure the viewing pleasure of all your unsuspecting friends/family members on social media.

You can check out the glorious poster to the right and the silly-ass trailer below. Like ’em, love ’em, share ’em, and then let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Milko Davis and Thomas Martwick from a script by Producer Michelle Pacitto and stars American professional bodybuilder/Producer Andy Haman, Cooper Elliott, Shale Le Page, Ruselis Perry, Mia Klosterman, and Nicole Goeke.

Wild Eye Releasing will release The Jurassic Dead in the U.S Summer 2018.

Synopsis:

A unit of mercenaries must team up with a group of tech-geek students after American is struck with an EMP attack. Deep in the desert, they find the source of the terror, a mad scientist who has also just created a living dead T-Rex dinosaur, one who turns everyone it attacks into a zombie. Now they must scramble to stay alive and save the planet from the ultimate undead predator.
