Things are looking good for Bryan Bertino. The writer/director of The Strangers (review) has just signed a deal with Rogue Pictures, Focus Features' genre arm, to bring them two more thrillers in the coming years according to Variety. A Strangers sequel is not part of the deal.
Ehren Kruger is back adapting novels for the big screen (you may remember his last one, Blood and Chocolate?) according to this morning’s Variety. The trade reports that Rogue Pictures has just nabbed Kruger’s adaptation of The Keep.
Our man Nomad got to hit up the recent press conference for Rogue Pictures' The Strangers, hitting theaters this Friday, May 30th, and got the chance to sit down with stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as well as director Bryan Bertino.

With The Strangers (review) now in theaters, we figured it was about damn time we chose some winners in this here contest. Check out the names below and hope yours is among them! The Strangers poster signed by stars Liv Tyler & Scott Speedman goes to...
On May 30th, 2008, we’ll finally get a chance to allow our eyeballs to feast on The Strangers, the home invasion movie starring Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman. The film has been delayed various times for multiple reasons, so personally I’m just glad it’s finally getting out in theaters!
The very cool folks at Rogue Pictures sent us over a batch of 20 stills from the upcoming May 30th release of The Strangers, which stars Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman. Bryan Bertino wrote and directed the home invasion thriller that we’ve been looking forward to for a while now. Hopefully it’ll live up to its creepy ad campaign so far. Keep it here for more Strangers updates and visit the official Strangers site for more goodies! Enjoy the pics below!
We've all been counting down. We knew this day would come. Doomsday (review here) is finally here, and to celebrate (and who wouldn't celebrate the apocalypse?), we've got a battery of interviews for you!
How weird is this? I was just with Doomsday director Neil Marshall all weekend at Fear Fest and never once did we get a peep about a film called Sacrilege...
Our world is coming to an end. The signs are all there; gas prices are on the rise, Rosemary's Baby is being remade and so on. Just how long will it take before we reach ... Doomsday? If you were in Hollywood this week then you probably saw it happening.
Neil Marshall’s final pre-release Doomsday blog just appeared over on his MySpace page, featuring a ton of new pics from the film including the one you see on your right. That’s his wife, Axelle, in one of her two roles in Doomsday.
All right, just under a month left before Neil Marshall’s Doomsday hits theaters (be sure to check out our ass-kicking contest for it right here) and finally the film’s official site has opened up beyond just the trailer.
Doomsday is coming, we all know when (“Doomsday Gets a Date!” – January 2008) ... but what will it look like? What will the epic plague on Earth leave in its wake? Will the people who survived outside of the containment zone retain their humanity? Will the disease that drove the human race to near extinction be cured?
I really can’t wait for Doomsday. Neil Marshall’s track record to date has shown us a director who loves working in our genre and knows how to do it right and even though Doomsday isn't horror, it is post-apocalyptic and in my book, that’s close enough.
The Strangers is one of those rarer horror films that I’m sure, first and foremost, doesn’t want to be called a horror film. It came out of left field, though, seemingly being made under our usual introspective radar, and scooped up by Rouge before anyone knew what was going on. Today Rogue Pictures have dropped the official trailer for The Strangers, so of course we called it our own and put it in our Broadband section. So what are you waiting for? Scroll down a bit to check out The Strangers trailer on Dread Central!
We first told you about The Strangers very recently (“Meet The Strangers” – August 2007), but in fact the movie’s been building buzz for a while now thanks to its creative marketing approach and name talent.
