Dread Central Opens Up Online Halloween Store with SUPER Discounts!

Halloween is a very special time of the year for horror fans. Let's face it, it's our "Holiday Season". The only bad thing about it? It's also when every store, both physical and online, raises the prices of their stuff, making it difficult for folks to afford their horror haul. NOT ANYMORE!

Saturday Nightmares Returns This Weekend

Dread Central regulars might remember my short-lived column from 2010. I drudged up older genre films on a weekly basis in an effort to give them their day in the sun. But I found myself bogged down in real life stuff at the time that prevented me from continuing on. I always intended on bringing it back, and I'm happy to say that day is nearly upon us!

Dread Central Turns Six!

Six years ago Dread Central opened its doors on July 4th, declaring our independence from those who were holding us back, and the lunatics have been running the asylum ever since. The road thus far has been winding and unpredictable, and we wouldn't want it any other way.

Dread Central's Regrets, Reviews, and Regards - Sometimes We Suck

We admit it. We're not always right. In fact, like everyone else sometimes we miss the mark by a mile. Still, one man's trash is another's treasure, and in that spirit we'd like to take this time to poke a little fun at ourselves and look back at some of the reviews we get no end of shit for.

Happy Holidaze 2011 From Dread Central

And here we are again. Another holiday season that puts the greatest exclamation point on the year that we could ever have hoped for. Thank you sincerely for making 2011 a banner year for us.

Holiday Fun Dread Central Style!

Ah yes, kids! It's in the air. Everyone's just a little happier and smiling just a bit more. Festive decor lines the streets, we've been spiking our eggnog since Tuesday, and I'm finally done adding glitter and paint to my testicles (one red, one green) so I can dangle them like mistletoe anywhere I can that won’t involve me getting thrown into jail for the weekend.

Night Terrors Finds a Home at Dread Central After Being Banned Elsewhere

I love this story! Chris St. Croix and David Buchert are the co-creators of a new web series entitled Night Terrors. They've had the first episode, "The Keeper", taken down from several sites around the internet for containing "objectionable content". Well, the boys contacted Dread Central with their conundrum, and (being the fans of objectionable content that we are) we said, "Boys, you've got a home."

Happy Thanksgiving 2011

The most filling day of the year is now upon us once again, but before we pack it in and start gorging, we feel it's important to acknowledge what we are most thankful for here at Dread Central.
