Talent to Attend Dread Central’s Bicoastal Screenings for The Night Watchmen Next Week in NY and LA

Published

on

The stars of Mitch (The Hamiltons) Altieri’s award-winning horror comedy The Night Watchmen will be attending Dread Central’s free screenings of the movie next week. Ken Arnold, Dan DeLuca, and Dan Franko will be there on Monday, November 13, in Brooklyn, New York. Then on Tuesday, November 14, in Los Angeles, stars Kevin Jiggetts and Kara Luiz will be on hand.

The Night Watchmen, about bumbling warehouse guards who must fend off a vampire outbreak, played over three dozen film festivals (including Montreal’s Fantasia and the NYC Horror Film Festival) to much acclaim and took home at least two dozen major prizes.

New Yorkers can catch The Night Watchmen (and eat a great meal in the process!) at the world-famous Brooklyn Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (445 Albee Square West; 718-513-2547) on Monday, November 13. Dread’s Tony Timpone will provide the meet & greet there. The fun begins at 7 pm at the Alamo.

DreadVision’s LA screening will take place at Hollywood’s swanky Arena Cinelounge Sunset (6464 Sunset Boulevard; 323-924-1644) on Tuesday, November 14, and will be hosted by blogger/filmmaker and Dread buddy SpookyDan Walker. The show starts at 7:30 pm.

These DreadVision Night Watchmen screenings will be free shows; to obtain tickets, send an email to screenings@dreadcentral.com. Please tell us which show you want to attend by listing “Watchmen: NY 11/13” or “Watchmen: LA 11/14” in your subject line and provide your full name. The offer is good for you and your guests. We will confirm your RSVP, but seating is not guaranteed, so arrive early.

Synopsis:
Three inept night watchmen, aided by a young rookie and a fearless tabloid journalist, fight an epic battle to save their lives. A mistaken warehouse delivery unleashes a horde of hungry vampires, and these unlikely heroes must not only save themselves but also stop the scourge that threatens to take over the city of Baltimore.

These exclusive events are presented by our pals at Orama Filmworks and Gravitas Ventures, who are releasing The Night Watchmen on Blu-ray, VOD, iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon on November 21.

Check out this raves:
“The Night Watchmen, directed by Mitchell Altieri (The Hamiltons, The Thompsons), was made for midnight movie buffs. This demented cousin of Zombieland and Shaun of the Dead is as bloody as it is fun.”—Brussels International Film Festival

“…this latest throwback to the decade’s horror comedies is as gloriously demented as it is meticulously reconstructed. And with an undead horde of vampire zombie clowns running amok, there’s a lot of fun to be had.”—Starburstmagazine.com

“I loved The Night Watchmen and it totally deserves full marks…It’s the horror comedy of the year. Bloody. Hilarious.”—www.deeomen.com

“This one has ALL the makings of a potential cult classic. In the what-to-watch-when-you-and-your-friends-are-pretty-drunk category…this one is Citizen Kane material!”—Horrornews.net

“A little Shaun of the Dead, a little Half Baked and it gives you an idea of what to expect…The Night Watchmen is a film that could have a nice little cult following…If you are a fan of early ’90s cheese splatter horror, then look out for this one!”—Horrormoviesuncut.com

Buffy Is Back in New Buffy the Vampire Slayer Comic Miniseries by Joss Whedon

Published

on

Buffy is back!

Joss Whedon (Angel, Serenity) and Christos Gage (Angel & Faith) return to unite the Buffyverse for a four-issue Buffy the Vampire Slayer series this June!

This action-packed miniseries from Dark Horse Comics, called Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 12: The Reckoning, reunites the Buffyverse with the return of Angel, Faith, Illyria, and Fray, the Slayer from the future!

On top of that, Buffyverse alumnus artist Georges Jeanty (Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) also returns to lend his illustrative skills to the next installment.

Issue #1 (of four) boasts three variant covers by Stephanie Hans, Georges Jeanty with Karl Story and Dan Jackson, and Karl Moline. You can check out one to the right and the other two below. Give them a look-see, and then let us know what you think!

You can pre-order the first issue at your local comic shop in March before the series hits June 20, 2018.

Synopsis:
Following the world-altering finale of Season 11, Buffy and the Scoobies have had a laid-back year in the saving-the-world department. But as they’ve learned over their years of fighting the forces of darkness and thwarting many an apocalypse, nothing stays quiet for long.

When Dawn and Xander’s housewarming party is crashed by some familiar faces with news of an amassing force that must be reckoned with—Wolfram & Hart, a legion of demons, and Harth, a vampire from the future—Buffy finds herself in a time warp that could alter the fate of the world and could spell the end for Buffy, her friends, and the Slayers forever.

Stephen King’s The Bone Church Becoming a TV Series Via David Ayer

Published

on

I’ve said it quite a few times but 2017 will go down as the “Year of Stephen King.”

With successful adaptations of his novels IT, Gerald’s Game, and 1922, and TV series based on “The Mist” and “Mr. Mercedes”, King was everywhere in 2017.

And it looks like the trend is going to continue as today we have news that Suicide Squad and Bright director David Ayer will develop King’s The Bone Church into a TV series.

Deadline reports that Ayer will exec-produce the series along with Chris Long and their Cedar Park Entertainment banner, which will also be the studio for the series as well.

I haven’t yet read Stephen King’s poem “The Bone Chruch” (which was revised and featured in King’s recent anthology The Bazaar of Bad Dreams) so I can’t comment on whether or not the poem will make for a solid series. But if it’s King, I’m there.

What do you think of “The Bone Church” becoming a TV series? Let us know below!

Synopsis:

An adventurer organizes an expedition deep into a vast jungle land to locate the mythic Bone Church. They discover a secret not meant for the eyes of strangers. Only three of the 32 travelers escaped with their lives in a tale narrated by one of the survivors, who tells stories from a bar stool to patrons who’ll buy him drinks.

Nick Castle AKA Michael Myers Talks In-Depth About Blumhouse’s Halloween

Published

on

God bless, Nick Castle.

It was just the other day that we let you guys know that filming had wrapped on Blumhouse’s upcoming sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween.

And today it looks like Nick Castle aka Michael Myers himself is back out and about doing the horror convention thing as our buddies over at Halloween Daily News recently caught up with Castle at Mad Monster Party and sat down for an awesome and in-depth interview.

I’ve only included the best bits and pieces from the interview here, but the whole piece is very interesting and I highly recommend checking it out in the link below.

The first bit I found really interesting was Castle speaking about how, originally, director David Gordon Green didn’t know what to make of the offer to write-direct the new Halloween.

He (Green) told me when he got this offered to him, he didn’t know what to make of it to begin with,” Castle says. “But then he went, ‘How can I turn this down? But now that I’m saying I’m going to do it, I really have to make sure I do it right.’

Fair enough. Green is one of my favorite director out there working today and I’m glad to hear that even though he wasn’t sure about taking on the film, he still couldn’t turn it down. That’s a true fan!

Next up, Castle was asked if the new film will feel like the original Carpenter flick.

Yes, and it’s very neighborhood-centric, you know, like the first one,” Castle said. “It feels a lot like (the first film). There are a lot of things coinciding (in the new film) that feel like clever ways to introduce a kind of déjà vu of the first one, without feeling like it’s being copied. The script had some very clever people working on it. They were very clear on wanting to find the tone that was in the first one. It was the first thing out of their mouths really: ‘We want to do it like John did it.’

He continues: “They had a lot of practical challenges making it 40 years later, in terms of where people were, what they’re doing, the kind of assumption of the interim period, and I think a lot of that went towards deciding when to start the film, in a way disregarding the subsequent sequels. It’s a difficult thing they’re trying to do. It is difficult. When you’re given a project that has within it certain limitations of what went on before, you have to follow a trail through that, it can get very – it can plod along and it can be just about plot. And they made some choices that I think are really bold choices about who these people are and why they are the way they are now. So I’m really looking forward it. I have high hopes.

We have high hopes too, Castle! And finally, Castle was asked if he genuinely believes all of us fans are going to be happy with this new Halloween sequel, to which he responded, “Yes. I can be unabashedly proud to be a part of it, and tell the fans I think they’re in pretty good hands. It’s kind of like fans are making the movie.

Good shit all around, right? Gotta love Nick Castle. How excited are you for Blumhoue’s Halloween? Do Castle comments make you more (or less) enthusiastic about director David Gordon Green’s film? Let us know below!

Check out the full interview HERE.

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.

The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.

Synopsis:

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Trivia: Nick Castle directed Major Payne (1994)
