Rest in Peace: Phyllis DillerWhen it comes to careers in showbiz, few actors can say that they have done and seen as much as the legendary Phyllis Diller, who was actively working in the business until she was ninety-one years old. Sadly, she’s passed away, and we’d like to take this time to honor her memory.

While most people will remember Diller for her sense of humor and insane hair, the funny lady didn’t mind dipping her toe into the horror genre at all, playing parts in the little seen zombie kid classic The Boneyard as well as Rod Serling’s “Night Gallery” and “Tales from the Darkside.” We, however, especially this writer, will always love her for lending her voice talents to one of the all time classic children’s horror films, Rankin and Bass’ timeless 1967 film Mad Monster Party.

Phyllis passed away today at the fine old age of ninety-five. “She died peacefully in her sleep and with a smile on her face,” her longtime manager, Milton Suchin, told The Associated Press.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to wish Diller’s friends, family, and constituents our deepest of condolences.

To quote a line from Diller’s song from Mad Monster Party, “You’re Different”…

You’re different, and you know that’s what I like about you!” That’s what we LOVED about you, Phyllis. Rest in peace and thanks for all of the smiles.

Death House Theatrical Release Delayed One Week Due to Black Panther Success

Published

Death House

If you were excited to see Death House this week, you’re going to have to pump your brakes as the film’s theatrical release has been postponed one week due to the success of Disney/Marvel’s Black Panther.

Eric Pakrinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House, who is distributing Death House in theaters, states, “Obviously, we are very disappointed to find such pressure from the exhibitors to hold-over multiple screens for ‘Black Panther’ but we are happy for the success that this film is providing to theatre owners, and we know that the slight delay we are implementing for ‘Death House’ will ultimately pay big dividends for the film.”

The plan is to now launch Death House on Friday, March 2nd with a special media event and public opening at the Regency Plant 16 in Van Nuys, California, where 20 cast members, along with additional crew, will be present. From there, the film will spread to other markets on March 9 and March 16. If performances are strong, additional markets will be added following those dates.

This shift in release also pushes back the home video and digital release dates to July, although no official date has been locked.

Director Harrison Smith recorded a video asking the horror community to turn out in droves when the film hits their market. You can see it below.

Rumor: Stephen King’s IT: Chapter 2 Starts Shooting this Summer

Published

on

Let me start this out by saying that this bit of Stephen King’s IT news has not been confirmed. That said, I can only hope that it is true so let’s see what you think.

Today, Omega Underground is reporting that Andres Muschietti’s IT: Chapter 2 will begin filming this summer on June 18th. The site also claims that filming will take place at Pinewood Toronto Studios.

I guess we’ll see if this rumor is true or not in the next few weeks as the casting of the adult Loser’s Club should be underway one way or the other soon as the movie already has a set release date in September 2019.

Are you excited that IT: Chapter 2 might begin principal photography this summer? Let us know below!

IT is directed by Andrés Muschietti from a script by Chase Palmer & Cary Joji Fukunaga and Gray Dauberman, based on the novel by Stephen King. The film stars Jaeden Lieberher, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Chosen Jacobs, Nicholas Hamilton, Owen Teague, Javier Botet, Steven Williams, and Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.

IT: Chapter 2 creeps into theaters September 6th, 2019.

BUT THE ORIGINAL ON BLU-RAY HERE!

Synopsis:

A group of young kids faces their biggest fears when they seek answers to the disappearance of children in their hometown of Derry, Maine. They square off against an evil clown named Pennywise, whose history of murder and violence dates back for centuries.
