A while back we mentioned that a big name horror director would be lending his talents to the upcoming flick Djinn. Finally said director has been announced, and it's gonna be great seeing his work back up on the big screen! From the Press Release
Tobe Hooper's under-appreciated slasher opus The Funhouse is a huge favorite here around the Dread Central offices. The flick had it all -- gypsies, sex, good kills, a great location, and most importantly a badass looking monster who wore a Frankenstein's Monster mask until his, um ... unveiling. From our point of view this remake is a no-brainer and it seems as if director Eli Roth feels the same way!
As any horror fan worth their salt knows, back in 1974, a little film was released (or unleashed) upon the public with the off-putting yet intriguing title, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
Hey Midwestern horror fans, hope you’re keeping the weekend of March 6-8th open! Fangoria’s Weekend of Horrors is coming to the Wyndham Chicago O’Hare Hotel, located at 6810 North Mannheim Road, in Rosemont, Illinois.
Poltergeist just cries for a remake, doesn't it? There's no way any of the young kids today can relate to a film without high-def TVs, cellphones and MTV approved actors! Yes, it totally needs an update...
About two years ago we reviewed ultimate Texas Chainsaw Massacre DVD from Dark Sky, and it was good. Everything from the special features all the way down to the transfer kicked some major leathery ass. It was good headcheese for all. But now that we've entered into the Blu-ray era, will Leatherface and the family get their due?
You know it's a good day to be a zombie fan when you learn from some well placed friends that your favorite walking dead director is getting set to start production on yet another entry into his classic series! Ah yes, kids, Diary of the Dead 2 is all but on its way!
Rue Morgue is showing us Americans how it’s done yet again this year with their 5th annual Festival of Fear, going down this August 22nd–24th, 2008, at the Metro Toronto Convention Center.
It’s been a while since anyone’s been talking about Texas Chainsaw Massacre, since the last thing that came our way tended to underwhelm and no plans for anything new have been in place. Then Fangoria talked to Kim Henkel, writer of the Tobe Hooper original, who gave them the word that he’s working on a new Leatherface adventure.
Here’s a project I never expected to hear about again: Toolbox Murders 2, the sequel to Tobe Hooper’s 2003 remake of the 1978 original. Fangoria got to chatting with long-time second unit director and FX vet Dean Jones recently, who revealed that he’ll be helming Toolbox 2, possibly as early as May.
