Horror Snubbed at the Oscars; William Shatner Asleep in the Audience; Jennifer Lawrence Falls; Meryl Streep Picks Wedgie!
And the Oscar gold goes to... everything but the few genre films which were nominated at the 2013 Academy Awards. Overall the entire show was a snooze, and we mean that literally! See that for yourself and more.
Mondo, the art division of Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, celebrates the upcoming Oscars with its secnd annual poster series tied to nominated films in select categories, and the one that should be of most interest to horror fans is for ParaNorman.
This Sunday is Oscar day, but for genre fans it's The Saturn Awards that really matter, and we have the full list of this year's nominees. Although we have to say the horror pickings are rather slim indeed!
Per usual, we didn't see many horror films listed among this year's nominees for an Academy Award, but here's the lowdown on those that did make the cut.
We were as skeptical as anyone when it came to ParaNorman. Truth be told, cutesy horror isn't exactly high up on our list, but this flick has enough lunacy and horror innuendo in it to satisfy even the most jaded of fans. Now you can win it on Blu-ray from us!
The weekend after Labor Day is traditionally one of the least movie-going weekends of the year, and this year that tradition held true. That’s good news for The Possession as it held the top spot as the most watched movie of the least watched weekend.
Remember last weekend when I speculated that the box office failure of horror movies released in August/September 2011 might be repeating itself this year? Never mind. Turns out it was just a case of either nobody wanted to see The Apparition or they were all waiting for The Possession.
The Telluride Horror Show in Telluride, Colorado will be holding their third annual film festival from October 12-14. We've just gotten the list of the first films scheduled to be included in the fest.
Remember last year when a slew of horror offerings were released in the months of August and September, and one after another proceeded to flop at the box office? Seeing as how The Apparition went unseen this weekend, it looks like history might be repeating.
It may be an animated movie, but ParaNorman was the first horror-flavored movie offering on the big screen in a couple of weeks. Despite solid reviews, the family flick about a boy saving his town from the undead wasn’t able to scare up much audience from either kids or adults.
The dead are people, too, and they love to play! Huckleberry Toys knows this also and has unveiled its official line of ParaNorman themed collectibles. Each of the eight figures are 3.5”-4" tall and are available NOW! Take a look!
A few weeks ago Dread Central caught up with ParaNorman's directing duo of Chris Butler and Sam Fell during the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con, where we heard a bit about the basics of their delightful stop-motion animation film.
With ParaNorman (review) hitting theatres this weekend, we've got the final trailer and a couple of behind-the-scenes goodies on tap for you cats! Dig it!
