We lost count of exactly how many sequels there were to the werewolf classic The Howling. The troubled series has seen marsupials, freakshows, and even big-breasted sibling werewolves. Just when you thought it was over, the franchise is reborn!
We all know vampires are riding high on a wave of incredible popularity right now, but werewolves are holding their own pretty well, too. And on November 11th Top Cow introduces us to another lycan to love: FBI agent Alex O’Roark, aka Tracker.
New Moon, the second installment in The Twilight Saga, looks to be putting its bloodsuckers on the back-burner and focusing on the wolf pack, which should bode well for expanding its fanbase to those who prefer lycans over vamps. And if the newly released photo of Tinsel Korey as Emily Young, who is like "a second mother to the pack", is any indication, those wolves have some pretty nasty claws!
Summit Entertainment has released outdoor banner art for the three main character groups in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, and of course we've got a look at all of them for you!
Never mind all the big budget remakes that are supposed to wow you from their opening seconds. Screw all the lame ass CGI effects that most of the time add nothing to our horror genre other than making it seem a bit more cartoonish. If you're in the market for something old school and completely badass, you need to be digging on Eben McGarr's latest feature House of the Wolf Man. We've been telling you about it for months, but now some lucky folks in LA will finally get to see it!
Now here's a movie after my own heart. Because aren't we overdue for a mixed martial arts movie featuring werewolves? The film-to-be is titled Growl. The very notion of a movie about a traveling pack of underground MMA fighting werewolves makes me want to cheer.
When I first started working on my novel, I felt as though the horror genre hadn't utilized werewolves to anywhere approaching their full potential. That was almost three years ago (five if you count the short story I wrote in college), and I’m only now just putting the finishing touches on it. Of course, currently it seems like every other genre book out there is spinning a good old shapeshifter yarn. Guess I’ll have to go faster next time.
HBO's terrific "In Treatment" is becoming quite a springboard for genre actresses. First there was Mia Wasikowska as the new Alice in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, and now we have the equally talented Alison Pill joining Olivia Thirlby for Jack & Diane, a picture about two teenage girls who fall in love -- and as a result turn into werewolves!
Potential plotlines for a fourth installment in the Underworld franchise have been floating around since January, 2008, when the head of Lakeshore said confidently Underworld 4 “would carry on where Kate [Beckinsale] and Scott Speedman left off after 2.″ Now that Sony Screen Gems has given the project the green light, we'll see if he was telling the truth.
Visitors to Summit Entertainment's official New Moon site can now get an extra dose of Edward, Bella, Jacob, and the rest of the gang thanks to the launch of the studio's first viral marketing campaign for the franchise, The World of Twilight.
During the San Diego Comic-Con we had a chance to sit down with Toby Whithouse, Russell Tovey, Lenora Crichlow, and Aidan Turner, the creator and stars of "Being Human", a witty and thought-provoking look into the lives of three twenty-somethings and their secret double-lives … as a werewolf, a ghost, and a vampire, respectively.
Who doesn't love themselves some Sid Haig? As you know, the Captain has a new werewolf film coming out really soon, Dana Mennie's Dark Moon Rising, which also stars Max Ryan, Maria Conchita Alonso, Billy Drago, and more. To celebrate the film nearing release, we have several images of big Sid doing his thing for you guys to dig on!
