Wizard of Gore Conjures Up a DVD

Click to see more!Fangoria got the first look at the box art and details of Jeremy Kasten’s remake of “>The Wizard of Gore (review). In an age full of annoying floating heads and trickery via Photoshop, it’s good to see that Dimension Extreme is going balls out with its DVD covers. Lionsgate really could pick up a few tips from them (see any of their direct-to-video covers for an example).

On August 19th we’ll be introduced again to Montag the Magnificent (Crispin Glover), a talented magician, whose tricks don’t just astound the audience; they also kill the volunteers! Beat that, David Copperfield! The murderous mage also conjured up a slew of special features…

    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.

      I’m more partial to the UK cover myself.

      There’s over an hour and a half of special features that Kasten produced himself. Looks like an absolute blast! 🙂
