New Quarantine & Drag Me to Hell Dates

Movin' on up!2008 feels like the year of the release date switch. Midnight Meat Train was one of those victims, but we’re pretty confident the following two titles won’t end up the balls of some insane studio juggler.

Some good news came down the chute today for those eagerly awaiting John Dowdle’s adaptation of REC. In order to keep Quarantine at a fair distance from the rampaging Saw franchise, Sony Screen Gems bumped up the release date of the cinema verite flick to October 10th. That leaves a good two weeks between the two.

And for all of us clawing at the Internet for something in regard to Sam Raimi’s PG-13 horror film Drag Me to Hell, Ghost House Pictures picked 2009 to be the release year. May 29th will be the day Sam’s flick will undoubtedly make bank thanks to the rating and school being out for most high schoolers.

Infected apartment dwellers this October and cursed hot chicks next summer? Let’s just hope we can all still afford to actually drive to movie theatres by then!

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.
