Dread Central at AFM!

The American Film Market in Santa Monica is like Christmas for the movie industry: You never know what great titles will pop out of the woodwork. This year over 800 films were screened for distributors, quite a few of them horror. Dread Central was on hand for the week-long extravaganza, braving the ice-cold stares of exhibitors and studios to catch the new hot genre titles. The following is a mini wrap-up of the event brought to you by insomnia and SoBe™ brand energy drink. Enjoy!

Toronto Madness

Though it’s been in place for a while, the Toronto International Film Festival gets rolling on September 7th, and I thought that now would be the perfect time to remind all you lucky bastards who are going, as well as those unlucky among us who are not, about their lineup for Midnight Madness. This year the genre-centered portion of the show has got some fantastic titles showing up including: Bong Joon-ho’s highly anticipated monster romp The Host (September 8th)
