Blue Underground Gets StageFright in SeptemberMichael Soavi’s classic film StageFright is heading to Blu-ray and DVD in grand fashion from our friends over at Blue Underground, and right now we have a look at the artwork and more for ya! Go ahead! Spice up your Friday!

Look for it in stores on September 23, 2014.

StageFright marked the stunning directorial debut of Dario Argento protégé Michele Soavi and instantly sealed his reputation as the leader of Italian horror’s new generation of filmmakers.

Also known as Aquarius, Deleria, and Bloody Bird, this brutal shocker has been newly transferred in gore-drenched high definition from the original uncut and uncensored negative and comes loaded with exclusive new extras!

Synopsis
While a group of young actors rehearse a new musical about a mass murderer, a notorious psychopath escapes from a nearby insane asylum. But when the show’s director locks his cast in the theater overnight, the madman is accidentally locked inside as well. Now a killer with acting in his blood has gone berserk for the blood of actors (including several scenes that Euro-horror fans worldwide consider to be the most violent of the decade), and the stage is set for one unforgettable evening of shock, suspense, and unstoppable carnage.

Special Features

  • Theatre of Delirium – Interview with Director Michele Soavi
  • Head of the Company – Interview with Star David Brandon
  • Blood on the Stage Floor – Interview with Star Giovanni Lombardo Radice

    Alien: Covenant’s Carmen Ejogo Joins True Detective Season 3

    Published

    on

    “From the dusty mesa her looming shadow grows…”

    The first season of HBO’s “True Detective” was one of the best seasons ever put on a TV screen. Hands down. The second season was another story altogether. While not a complete waste of time (Colin Farrell owed) the season was basically merely ‘meh’.

    But what about “True Detective” season 3?

    Well, a few months back it was announced that the third season had been greenlit by HBO, with creator Nic Pizzolatto returning to pen the series and director Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room) taking the helm of the episodes.

    Today we have news that Carmen Ejogo – who you may recognize Ejogo from such recent fright flicks as It Comes at Night, Alien: Covenant, and The Purge: Anarchy – will be joining the previously announced Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) for Season 3.

    Ejogo will play the female lead, Amelia Reardon, who THR describes as “an Arkansas schoolteacher with a connection to two missing children in 1980.”

    Nice Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and direct alongside Jeremy Saulnier. Executive producers include Pizzolatto, Saulnier, Scott Stephens and season one stars Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as well as original director Cary Joji Fukunaga. Steve Golin, Bard Dorros and Richard Brown are also credited as exec producers.

    Synopsis:

    A macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods.

    Danielle Harris Tried to Get Jamie Lloyd into New Halloween Movie

    Published

    on

    One of the top films all of us are looking forward to the most here at Dread Central is Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel/reboot thing to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

    The new Halloween (2018) film is written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and is all set to be directed by Green this year. Recently we learned that original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis was going to be returning to the new film.

    Not only that, but Curtis’ classic character Laurie Strode would have a daughter… played by Judy Greer. But what about Danielle Harris?

    After all, Harris was the star of Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Curse of Michael Myers. Let alone, she had a starring role in both Rob Zombie’s remake and it’s sequel. So how about the new film?

    Turns out Harris tried to get her character Jamie Llyod (aka the daughter of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode) from Halloween 4 and 5 into the new film… but she was turned down by Blumhouse and the new creative team. That sucks.

    Harris was pretty bummed about the whole deal and took to Facebook recently to clear the air. You can check out quotes from her video, along with the video itself, below.

    After that make sure to hit us up and let us know how much you would have liked to see Harris return to Halloween in the comments below or on social media!

    “What I am bummed about is… [Laurie] has a daughter,” Harris says. “I was okay with it when she had a son… but they’re saying it’s the last one and… she has a daughter. And it’s not Jamie. It’s just kind of a bummer, I guess. I think somebody had said, it wouldn’t have hurt the movie to have Jamie reunited with [Laurie]. But that didn’t happen.”

    “We did put in a call, thought it’d be kinda cool even just to have a little flashback…” She continues. “They were not interested. So. I tried.”

    Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters October 19, 2018.

    Jordan Peele Is Open to the Idea of Get Out Sequel

    Published

    on

    Recently we shared the baffling news that this year, the Golden Globes were considering writer-director Jordan Peele’s psychological horror-thriller Get Out a comedy.

    Hurm. While that bit of news still doesn’t make a bit of sense to me, today we have an update on Jordan Peele’s possible sequel Get Out 2. Which is always welcome.

    Deadline was recently speaking with the filmmaker and Peele told them that although he still hasn’t cracked the sequel, if he comes up with a fresh spin he would have no problem revisiting the first film.

    “I haven’t decided anything yet,” Peele told the site. “I am allowing the creative part to bubble up, and not force it. I know if a follow-up is meant to happen, it will. I’m open to figuring out what it is. But I also don’t want to let down the original and its fans. I simply would not do something like that for the cash.”

    Good to hear!

    I don’t know about you, but if Jordan Peele does decide to revisit the world of Get Out again in the future, I will be there. After reading these comments, I have faith the man will not return unless the story deserves it. Money be damned!

    Unless… the sequel is called Sell Out… Ooohh. Snap. All jokes aside, in this world of sequels and remakes, it feels pretty damn good to hear a filmmaker talk this way.

    What do you think of a Get Out sequel? Do you think the first film needs a continuation? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!

    You can buy Get Out on Blu-ray HERE.

    Synopsis:

    Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he never could have imagined.
