Previously we mentioned the fact that Screamfest LA Horror Film Festival 2011 has put out its last call for entries. Well, let’s say you’re a filmmaker, but California isn’t exactly your scene. Maybe you kissed a girl and you liked it, but California Girls aren’t exactly your thing. If you’re more an East Coast-minded individual, well, we’ve got something for you, too.

The ass-kicking, bubble gum-chewing Rock and Shock Film Festival (October 14-16 in Worcester, MA) has opened its arms to welcome film entries of its own. (And by the way, they’re all out of bubble gum.) The deadline for submissions will be sometime in late September, but don’t let that stop you from acting now! Don’t procrastinate; motivate! One of you may eventually thank me for this kick in the ass.

From the Press Release
It’s that time of year again, and we’re excited to announce the call for entries to the 4th Rock and Shock Film Festival being held October 14-16 in Worcester, MA at this year’s Rock and Shock convention.

We are looking for your newest horror shorts and features to be screened in our festival during New England’s largest gathering of horror and heavy metal fans. So go to the Rock and Shock website for the film entry form and submission information.

Get those films in so Ric and Josh of the Arkham Film Society can personally screen all entries and determine the most horrifying films to show at this year’s festival. Deadline is late September.

And for those in the New England area, BY ALL MEANS, plan on attending Rock and Shock 2011. The line-up of guests already confirmed is amazing, with more to come! Just a quick glace at the guest list shows names like Robert Englund, Kane Hodder, Bill Moseley, Lance Henriksen, Gary Busey and son, both Boondock Saints and…what…the Starman himself, Ace Frehley! And this is just the tip of the iceberg. This festival is going to rock…and shock! Plan ahead now. Thank me later.

New Novel Alien: The Cold Forge Gets Cover Art, Synopsis, and Release Date



I don’t know about you but I’m a massive fan of the Alien film series. Oh, the hell with it. Let’s cut the bull. You are too.

Anyhow, considering both of us are massive fans of the Alien films, I wanted to make sure you were aware that Titan Books has an all-new original Alien novel on the way.

It’s called “Alien: The Cold Forge” and the 320-page paperback is written by Alex White (author of the “Salvagers” series) and will be hitting the public on April 24, 2018.

You can check out the novel’s synopsis below and its current cover art to the right. Just click the image for a higher-res version.

I know I will be attempting to score a copy of the novel asap, but what about you? Are you interested in this original novel? Let us know below!

Again, “Alien: The Cold Forge” hits April 24, 2018.



A dramatic new Alien novel, as Weyland-Yutani seeks to recover from the failure of Hadley’s Hope, and successfully weaponize the Xenomorphs.

With the failure of the Hadley’s Hope, Weyland-Yutani has suffered a devastating defeat–the loss of the Aliens. Yet there’s a reason the company rose to the top, and they have a redundancy already in place. Remote station RB-323 abruptly becomes their greatest hope for weaponizing the Xenomorph, but there’s a spy aboard–someone who doesn’t necessarily act in the company’s best interests. If discovered, this person may have no choice but to destroy RB-323… and everyone on board. That is, if the Xenomorphs don’t do the job first.

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez



One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Rest in Peace – Yôsuke Natsuki



We’ve lost another Kaiju legend today as reports are coming in that famed Japanese actor Yôsuke Natsuki has passed on at age 81.

Natsuki was a familiar face in several Godzilla films including Godzilla 1985 and Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster. Born in 1936, Yôsuke has made over 100 appearances in film with the last being in 2012’s Kirin.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to honor Natsuki’s friends, family members, and constituents.
