Back in the Eighties there were certain movies I’d rent on VHS just because the cover art was so damned good. Sure, some of them ended up sucking in comparison to their flashy covers, but screw it! It was all part of the budding home video experience.

Thankfully The Dude Designs remembers those times very well and as a result has been cranking out an amazing canon of eye candy.

Poster Collective presents The Dude’s FIRST EVER limited edition print available for sale to the human public (and/or all types of computer-trained dogs or monkeys.) The print will be available for sale on Friday, October 19th, 2012 @ 10AM ET via Poster Collective right here. The sale page also includes an in-depth interview with The Dude on his concept for this poster, VHS memories, video nasties in the UK and much more.

The duo has also teamed up with Keep a Breast (the leading youth-focused, global, nonprofit breast cancer organization) to whom he will donate $1 for each poster sold and an extra $50 if all the posters sell out. October is National Breast Cancer Prevention Month.

Thanks to our friends at Bloody Disgusting who got the first look!

    Jamie Lee Curtis Says Blumhouse Halloween Will Make Us “Very Happy and VERY Scared”

    Published

    on

    Bring. It. On.

    It was only last week that we let you guys know that Jamie Lee Curtis had wrapped filming on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

    And today we have another Instagram post from the legendary scream queen where she not only shows us a creepy-ass painting of Michael Myers, but she lets us know that Blumhouse’s Halloween is going to make us all “very happy, and VERY scared.”

    Hoo-ray!

    I don’t know about you, but I’m going to just go ahead and trust Jamie Lee Curtis on this one. She’s been around the Halloween block more than a few times and I trust her judgment… other than Halloween: Resurrection.

    You can check out her post below and then let us know how excited you are for Laurie Strode’s return!

    Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer of the film as well as the composer.

    The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

    Synopsis:

    Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

    The Blood Feast remake directed by Marcel Walz has been generating quite a buzz (read our review here) so we’ve been wondering what’s next for him, and over the weekend Walz provided us with an answer… sort of.

    He sent over the following photos for us to share with our readers, some of which also appeared on his social media accounts.  Marcel is in pre-production on a new film that will start shooting in Los Angeles next month.

    Right now the title and primary cast members are being kept under wraps, but you can expect an official announcement soon.

    In the meantime check out the images, and let the guessing games begin!

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

    Published

    on

    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 9th and March 16th. 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.
