Dread Central’s Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples

Published

on

Love is in the air! That’s right, gorehounds; it’s that time of year again. Valentine’s Day is here, and we’ve got a special treat just for you. There has certainly been no shortage of terrifying couples, obsessions and forbidden loves in fright films over the years. Today we bring you our Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples.

We’re not talking about the hero who battles the monster and saves the helpless girl at the end. That’s not going to make this list. We’re talking about the couples that were somehow uniquely intertwined within a film. Of course first we have our honorable mentions.

We’d have loved to include Leatherface and Stretch from Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 here, but they weren’t really a couple as Stretch was just using her womanly wiles to try to escape in one piece. Also, you can’t really have a list like this without mentioning Bella Swan and Edward Cullen from The Twilight Saga, just for the sheer volume of loot the films have brought in. We decided, however, to pass on them. Too sappy, even for this list. Vlad and Elisabetha from Francis Ford Coppola’s film Bram Stoker’s Dracula was another near miss for a love affair that spanned generations. Oh, there’s also Adam Green and Joe Lynch, but that one just involves too much body hair.

Dread Central's Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples
So without further ado, here, in chronological order, are our Top 10 Greatest Horrific Couples.

King Kong (1933)
King Kong and Ann Darrow

“Oh, no, it wasn’t the airplanes…it was Beauty killed the Beast.” Isn’t that so often the case, fellas? You bend over backwards for your girl, battle monsters on Skull Island, climb the Empire State Building to protect her, and what do you get? That’s right, shot down by fighter pilots. I’ve seen it a million times. But this is a story of true love. Yes, there is the unfortunate bestiality angle that needs to be considered, but Kong truly loved his girl. So what can we learn from this story? Firstly, if you discover a place called Skull Island, best to just stay the hell away from it. But if you must go, don’t bring back any souvenirs, especially the hulking over-sized gorilla kind. Because when giant apes get attached to someone, they tend to be a bit overzealous with them. Just a word to the wise.

Night of the Living Dead 4K and The Silence of the Lambs Come to the Criterion Collection

Published

on

It’s been a long time coming for these two classics, especially Night of the Living Dead after the ridiculously bad transfer put out by Mill Creek Entertainment, whose transfer was supposedly remastered from a new 2K scan. I swear I thought it was some kind of a joke when I first put it on to watch. In any event…

IndieWire is reporting that horror classics Night of the Living Dead and The Silence of the Lambs will be added to the 2018 Criterion Collection, a hallmark label for home video cinephiles.

According to the site, Criterion will release a new 4K digital restoration of The Silence of the Lambs, which has been approved by the movie’s cinematographer Tak Fujimoto. Included on the DVD and Blu-ray sets are 35 minutes of deleted scenes and audio commentary from 1994 featuring the late Jonathan Demme (director), stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins, screenwriter Ted Tally, and former FBI agent John Douglas.

Night of the Living Dead will also be released in 4K with never-before-seen 16mm dailies included as a bonus feature(!).

These will be added in February of 2018 so make sure you save up some cash after the holidays!

Kevin Bacon Lets Us Know the Tremors Reboot Pilot Has Wrapped Filming

Published

on

Two weeks ago we let you guys know that Tremors mainstay Michael Gross, aka Burt Gummer, was, unfortunately, not asked to be a part of the upcoming Syfy reboot series starring Kevin Bacon.

While that news upsets us a bit, being that the series has only filmed its pilot episode, we feel that there is still a big chance we could see Burt return to kick some more Graboids in the tentacle-thingies with elephant guns.

Fingers crossed.

Speaking of the “Tremors Syfy pilot, recently star Kevin Bacon took to Instagram to let us all know that filming has wrapped!

You can check out The Bacon’s post below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for Syfy’s “Tremors” series in the comments below!

In the Tremors follow-up, written by Andrew Miller, the killer Graboid worms that nearly destroyed Perfection, NV, 25 years ago are back; and the town’s only hope for survival is Valentine McKee (Bacon), who beat them once. But to do it again he’ll have to overcome age, alcohol, and a delusional hero complex.

“Tremors” the TV series is headed our way courtesy of Jason Blum’s Blumhouse TV and Universal Cable Prods.

We’ll let you know when we hear more about the series!

So long to NM. Had an amazing time shooting this pilot. Hope I can keep walking in these boots #Tremors

Exclusive: Buzzard Hollow Beef Brings Cannibal Gore to the Holidays

Published

on

Holidays at the end of the year seem to be focused on one major aspect: food. From Christmas hams to Thanksgiving turkeys to Hanukkah latkes to who knows what else, eating is a very important part for end-of-the-year festivities. Personally, I’m totally okay with it because it means great food and TONS of leftovers, ensuring that I don’t have to concern myself with cooking for at least a couple of days.

But what if the holiday season were a bit more sinister and what if the food was a bit more…unsavory? Allow us to introduce you to Buzzard Hollow Beef, a new vision of horror that blends cannibal hillbillies, intense and terrifying hallucinations, and small town mysteries. If this sounds up your alley, then don’t fret about waiting because the film comes to Amazon Prime, iTunes, and other transactional platforms on Tuesday, November 21!

We’ve got a trailer, poster, and several stills for you to check out, so peruse at your will and enjoy!

Directed by Joshua M. Johnson, who co-wrote the film with Tara C. Hall, Buzzard Hollow Beef stars Bruce Jennings, Nadia Kamil, Scott C. Brown, Emily Letts, Janet Chiarabaglio, Amanda Spinella, Will Frazier, Gabriel Caste, and Doug Perkins.

Synopsis:
Still reeling from her divorce and struggling as the single mother of a 9 month old, Jordan Vollmer looks forward to a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend with her family and her best friend, Paige. As the group ventures into the small town of Buzzard Hollow, they are greeted with strange and unsavory characters, known around these parts as the Solomon family. Their suspicions surrounding the Solomons are aroused by the fact that they all seem unwilling to talk about the beef that they serve in their hamburgers and sell in their butcher shop. When the Vollmers experience horrifying hallucinations, they begin to suspect that the Solomons are somehow involved.
