I’m not sure just how firmly rooted in our genre this one will be, but it’s a new film from Snakes on a Plane and Final Destination 2/4 director David R. Ellis, so if nothing else it’ll be fun. Actually, anyone who's seen Asylum (DVD review) can make a good argument why it may not be, but I digress.
In horror these days, there are two types of indies: movies you can tell were made on the very definition of a “shoestring budget” that are usually riddled with effects and performances so bad you can’t help but smile, and movies made by those who either had more money or just knew how to use it better along with a serious story to tell. The Dead Outside looks to, refreshingly, be of the latter category. Dig some plot:
December 23rd is the day when we'll all get what we wanted for Christmas: Pulse 3 on DVD! If Pulse 2 (review) taught us anything, it's that some of us would rather get coal this holiday season. Don't blame me for the bad news, look at Fangoria, they broke it.
A couple of weeks ago we told you about the availability of the final episode of "Misplaced Affection", a four-part animated mini-series that took place in the Dead Space videogame universe.
We've been all over EA's upcoming survival horror game Dead Space for months now, and we're all giddy that the big day is finally approaching.
Just a quick update on what is looking like one of the best horror titles this generation. Shack News reports that Dead Space has seen its release pushed up into mid-October. Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 gamers can expect to get their hands on it on October 14th now with PC owners having to wait a few days for an October 20th release.
Over the weekend we were dropped the good news from Broken and The Devil’s Chair (review) director Adam Mason that one of his first short films called “Prey”, made years before Broken (review) and since believed to be lost, has been found and is available exclusively for Dread Central readers!
This is what happens, guys, when you try and get romantic with your lady. You take her out to a nice, remote spot with plans to propose and for your troubles you get vandalized by thugs who torture your girl and make your life a living hell.
It has been a good long while since Jamie Blanks' Urban Legend and Valentine. I guess his time away from the director's chair had to come to and end, because the Storm Warning is rolling in fast now ("New Storm Warning Art" - January 2007).
Since Dimension nabbed the release rights to Jamie (Urban Legends) Blanks' latest Aussie-set horror film Storm Warning, all has been quiet about their plans for it.
Remember Jamie Blanks? The director who burst onto the scene in the mid-90’s with Urban Legend, then disappeared from the scene (in a directorial status, at least) after Valentine? Well, he’s back with a new film called Storm Warning that sounds like it may not be half bad.
