Magnolia Sees Red, New Poster!

New Red poster!Variety is reporting that Magnolia Pictures has swept up the distribution rights to the adaptation of Jack Ketchum’s Red.

The story of a man wanting revenge for the murder of his dog stars Brian Cox and Tom Sizemore. Freddy Krueger himself, Robert Englund, is also present in the film, which was directed by Trygve Allister Diesen after Lucky McKee left.

The film will appear at Cannes, and Magnolia has “exclusive HDNet Ultra VOD airings, with a late summer theatrical rollout to follow” planned for Red. Sounds good to me! Click on the teaser image to your right to see the new poster for the film, as well!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

    RED is one of my all time favorite books. I’ve always said it’s like an unhly cross between WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS and I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE.

    I cannot frickin’ wait to see this.

    Everyone is saying that this is a pretty extreme movie, like the last few Ketchem movies. Maybe we’ll see Off Season on the big screen soon?

    Sounds great! I love revenge movies. I’ll want to read the book beforehand, though. Maybe. Anyway, I thought “Girl Next Door” was excellent (even if I liked “An American Crime” more), and I thought the Lost was hit or miss. We’ll see how this goes.
