With the disaster in the Gulf yielding monstrous results, it was only a matter of time before someone made a new horror flick on an oil rig. Nature is ready to strike back in the most unnatural of ways in the William Forysthe starrer The Rig, and we've got all the DVD details for you right here!
The BP oil spill disaster has left me wondering how long it's going to take before we see a wave of monster movies and disaster flicks centered around the subject. The makers of The Rig may have gotten lucky that they already had a creature feature in the can about a monster loose on an oil rig because now they'll be the first out of the gate when Anchor Bay spills the film onto DVD this October.
It's no secret Danielle Harris is a favorite around the Dread Central offices. It's like we kind of grew up with her, and besides, she's turned into one hell of an actress. With Hatchet II, Night of the Living Dead: Origins, and Stake Land on the way, we just caught wind of something else Harris has up her sleeve.
One of the great masters of horror of our time, Tom Holland, is back with "Twisted Tales", a brand new series of short films created in the great tradition of anthology shows like "The Twilight Zone" and "Outer Limits", and we have an exclusive look at one of the films you can expect to see in this collection, Vampire's Dance!
And it's a wrap on the new thriller starring Robert Englund. Of course we are referring to Verdi Corrente Productions' Inkubus, and now that it's in the can, we have a couple of more details for you including a website and a synopsis.
Here around Dread Central nothing makes us happier than diggin' into a brand new anthology film. They're cool because if you get bored of one story, you can just sit tight for the next to come! Executive producer Shanna MacDonald dropped us a line with the skinny and some exclusive stills for her latest bit of badassery - The Witching Hour, which stars a host of horror favorites!
Director Tom Holland has been on the front lines of the horror genre his whole career and turned in many a modern classic as a result. Now he's venturing out into a whole new world of terror with some of the genre's heavyweights, and he's taking us all along for the ride!
Every once in a while we learn about a new project only after it's already started filming, and that's the case with Verdi Corrente Productions' Inkubus, which is currently shooting in Rhode Island. But we certainly should be hearing lots more soon as they've just landed Robert Englund as their lead actor.
We haven't heard much lately about Dear Mr. Gacy, the film adaptation of The Last Victim, the memoirs of Jason Moss, who corresponded with serial killer John Wayne Gacy; but today brought forth a bonanza of information, including a teaser, a clip, and the chance for members of the Dread Central community to ask star William Forsythe any questions they might have regarding the new film and/or his portrayal of Gacy.
It was nearly two years ago that I first told you of a creature feature called The Platform starring William Forsythe and Art LaFleur about a crew trapped aboard an oil rig with a mutant monster. Been so long I had completely forgotten about the film until the other day when I decided to check on the status of it. At the time information was scarce. Now I find the film has a new title - The Rig, a new website, and a new trailer.
Word came down via THR this morning that Monster producer Clark Peterson is returning to the world of serial killers with Dear Mr. Gacy. The film will be an adaptation of The Last Victim, the memoirs of Jason Moss, who corresponded with serial killer John Wayne Gacy during the last year of the killer’s life and narrowly avoided being killed himself.
