People looking for a spooky getaway from the Comic-Con madness would do well to check out Coldwater at the show. Recently we sat down with director Dave Parker to get the skinny on what fans should expect from the film.

So, are you ready for Comic-Con?

DP: “Yeah it’s kind of a mad dash to get some last minute stuff done before then. Little things here and there.”

The Hills Run Red was a much gorier slasher film than Coldwater. Did you want to shift away from that on purpose?

DP: “It was a conscious choice between me and my partner on the film. We wanted to build more tension and suspense. I feel like that aspect of Hills could have been stronger. We’re not completely dry of blood and guts though!”

And what are you showing at the Con?

DP: “We’re going to show the trailer that’s online now. It’s altered a little bit. We’re showing that and then two scenes. One that features Ivan Djurovic and James Duval and another one that exemplifies the ideas of suspense and tension we’re working with. We found a scene that will really freak people out.”

Any on-set scares in the house you were shooting in?

DP: “It’s a very creepy multi-layered house. The house really becomes a character in the movie. But the fact that we were there… the normal shit happened while we were shooting it. We would try to scare the actors.”

What about this movie do you think will grab the people in Hall H?

DP: “I think the fact that it’s scary. The movie knows what it is, and it’ll be interesting to see how the audience interprets it. We want to give them a good scare. It has its own shooting style and it takes you on a journey. I think with all of the big films playing that hall, we’re something different. We’re not a big superhero movie. We also don’t telegraph what’s happening – you don’t know where this is going.”

From the Press Release
The Hills Run Red director David Parker returns to San Diego Comic-Con International on THURSDAY, JULY 12th, at 6:15 PM PT with a new first look at his horror/thriller independent motion picture COLDWATER. Parker joins up and comer star Ivan Djurovic and co-star James Duval in HALL H, as part of the “Virtual Drive-In” panel.

“In 2009 I had the opportunity to present my last picture, The Hills Run Red, in Hall H as part of Joel Silver’s Dark Castle panel alongside films like Ninja Assassin and Sherlock Holmes,” Parker says. “It was an amazing experience, and I am thrilled to get the chance to return to Hall H to give the fans a taste of Coldwater.”

COLDWATER is about Andre (DJUROVIC), who is recovering from a recent accident and agrees to help his friend Robert (RICK IRWIN) by taking over a house-sitting job at an unusual home nestled in the heart of Coldwater Canyon. As the day turns into night, Andre faces strange occurrences that lead him to believe he is not there alone, and someone or something is watching him.

Freddy’s Greatest Hits Vinyl Re-issue Is a Must-Own

Published

on

Strange Disc Records has just announced that it will be releasing “Freddy’s Greatest Hits – The Elm Street Group” on vinyl starting this Wednesday with pre-orders expected to ship in January 2018.

Not only that but Mondo announced they will be releasing an exclusive variant pressed on “Freddy Sweater” striped vinyl. This LP from Mondo is limited to 400 and will cost you $25.

For those who might not know, “Freddy’s Greatest Hits” was originally released in 1987. The record contains nine tracks (covers, originals, and instrumentals) with Robert Englund doing the voice of Freddy over the top.

I don’t know about you but this has just made my list of must-own items. But I’d prefer an original copy. That said an original copy is probably hundreds of buck on eBay as opposed to this version for a mere $25 bucks. Not bad.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26th, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
