Prisoners of war, criminals, the insane, animals … were … burned alive in baskets. By observing the way they died, the Druids believed they could see omens of the future. Two thousand years later, we’ve come no further. Samhain isn’t evil spirits. It isn’t goblins, ghosts or witches. It’s the unconscious mind. We’re all afraid of the dark inside ourselves.” — Donald Pleasence as Dr. Sam Loomis

In 1978 terror took on an entirely new shape as Michael Myers was unleashed upon an unsuspecting public. Now nearly three decades later director Rob Zombie has picked up the torch first ignited by John Carpenter as his own spin on the tale is set to hit theatres on August 31st.

To celebrate Michael’s latest rampage, Dread Central is thrilled to bring to you this exclusive podcast event. Each week from now until the release of Rob Zombie’s Halloween (archive here), we’ll be speaking with a different cast member from either one of the originals or Rob’s latest chapter.

This week: Kathleen Kinmont of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers!

For more information visit the official Rob Zombie’s Halloween MySpace page, and don’t forget to earn yourself a shot at winning a prop from the film by joining The Legion of Michael (story here)!

    Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

    Published

    on

    As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

    Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

    Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

    Synopsis:
    In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

    But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

    Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

    Published

    on

    The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

    The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

    Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

    We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
