Dinner for Fiends: Friday the 3rd Taint

Venom. Spite. Disgust. Boredom. These are the ingredients that make up the latest Dinner for Fiends, along with a dash of basil for color and flavor. This recipe is necessary to counter the bad taste left in our collective mouth from the new Friday the 13th redux.

Last House Premiere Report, New Pics!

Last night Dread Central gathered with all the horror outlets for a preview screening of the Last House on the Left remake, which was also attended by producer Wes Craven and stars Monica Potter, Sarah Paxton, and Terminator badass Garret Dillahunt.

Motion Picture Purgatory: Friday the 13th

You’ve read two wildly different opinions of the Friday the 13th remake, and now it’s time for the thoughts of our resident twisted Canadian, Rick Trembles, the only way he can express them: through art!

Friday the 13th Interviews!

Just a heads up in case you didn’t notice it; this weekend we posted two audio interviews with the cast of Friday the 13th, one with Jared Padalecki and one with the new Jason, Derek Mears.

Barker Praises New Hellraiser Helmer

I remember when the gents behind Inside (review) were attached to the Hellraiser remake, Clive Barker had a lot of overwhelmingly positive things to say about the duo. Then they were removed from the project, and the world got a little less cool.

Halloween 2: The Chainsaw Reunion

More casting news is in for Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 and this tidbit of information? I think this is kind of cool. Prepare for a Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 reunion of sorts as both Bill Moseley and Carolyn Williams have just been cast.

Friday the 13th Reviews!

Here at Dread Central we have lots of different personalities. As a result, we have mega differences in opinion too. When a big movie like Friday the 13th comes around, sometimes the dissidence is so great that we need two reviews. Such is the case now.

Nightmare on Elm Street Remake Gets a Director

Freddy fans, are you ready for a trip down a whole new Elm Street? Well, like it or not the film is being remade and word just broke about who will be taking up the directorial reigns!

Alex Winter Signs on for Gate Remake

Now this is some pretty damn cool news. Production Weekly reported today that Alex Winter (Freaked, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure) is now attached to direct the remake of Tibor Takács’ classic 1987 kids-in-peril movie, The Gate.

Last Poster on the Left

The monstrosities over at STYD got their clawed fingers on the official poster for the Last House on the Left remake, which is set to hit theaters on March 13, 2009, which, you may recall, is a Friday. Spooky.

Longer F13 When the Remake Hits Home

I love home video. Thanks to DVD and Blu-ray when a movie comes home, it can often be a different version than the one released to theatres. Apparently the Friday the 13th remake is the latest case in point!

Motion Picture Purgatory: The Uninvited

In this latest review from the mad Canadian Rick Trembles, our brother from a Northern mother takes a look at the latest Asian film remade for U.S. audiences, The Uninvited!
