This past season of Showtime's hit series "Dexter" was everything that a television show should be. With equal parts comedy, drama, and horror, it delivered an absolute knock-out punch to fans of the series with its final episode.
There are plenty of real life horrors out there to go along with the made-up stuff that we hold near and dear. In fact, there's probably more. Constant jokes are made about Mexican border-crossers, but the way our country is going ... pretty soon the shoe is likely to be on the other foot. Director Chris Peckover is taking the subject of "illegals" and adding a horror twist to the affair.
The Butcher Brothers are truly living up to their namesakes with these several new stills from their upcoming Sundance entry The Violent Kind. Check 'em on out and bring protection!
Here at Dread Central we love Death Race 2000. It's one of those extra charming flicks that revels in the fact that it has not one single redeeming social value. It was just a nice slice of absolute balls-out lunacy. Paul Anderson's remake .... not so much. Still, it was successful enough to merit a direct-to-video sequel and the cat has come out of the bag regarding who will be stepping into the director's chair.
The Butcher Brothers have a bit of a spotty track record with genre fans. From pleasing the majority of us with The Hamiltons to savaging some good memories of ours with their insipid April Fool's Day remake, you just have to take their films with a grain of salt.
Kidnappings can be a harrowing experience. Just think of how helpless you would feel if some crazy or group of crazies decided that there would be nothing finer than capturing you and your significant others, killing them before your eyes, and making you wait those long seconds before you're offed yourself. True, that is the worst case scenario, but it's frighteningly possible.
Yes, Whiteout was met with a rather chilly reception at the box office when some really bad word-of-mouth concerning ... well ... everything about it ... started spilling out of the handful of theatre-goers that bit the bullet and went to see it. But did it get a fair shake? Now that the movie's hitting DVD and Blu-ray, you'll get your chance to find out.
Looks like before the Creeper comes back to sniff out some new victims, Victor Salva will be taking us down a trip to Rosewood Lane where horror hides in the most unlikely of places.
A new piece of promo art and a new "shorter" synopsis have slipped online for Menhaj Huda's psycho-laden flick, Comedown, which tells of the dangers of taking to the airwaves illegally.
Considering some of their recent decisions, that headline seems really fitting, no? Nevertheless, a new flick is hitting DVD this December from Lionsgate called Psycho Ward, and we've got the skinny on what to expect should you decide to check in!
More news coming out of AFM today, this time concerning the latest Bret Easton Ellis adaptation, Bait, for Myriad Pictures. We've even scored you some sales art too! We're good like that!
One film that's got us giddy that's being shopped at AFM as we speak is Conor McMahon's The Disturbed. McMahon, as you may recall, was the man who brought us the way above average zombie opus Dead Meat, and this flick marks his return to our genre!
A short while back we told you about a promising slasher flick coming out of the U.K., Comedown. Today we have some good news for the fledgling production, which is taking shape nicely.
I guess I go against the grain when I say that I prefer to like most of the characters in a slasher flick. I’ve never been of the mind that you should root for the killer (the kills can still be fun/surprising without watching a collection of degenerates), and I’ll be curious to see how the recently announced Comedown goes about itself. After all, a story about a psychopath targeting trespassers could certainly go either way...
One film causing one hell of a stir on the festival circuit is a bizarre little experience known as >The Human Centipede (First Sequence) (review here). Why, you ask? Shit, man, isn't the title alone enough to get you wondering? You still need more?!? Well then! How about a clip? The Human Centipede (First Sequence) Synopsis:
