Tobe Hooper Planning "Toolbox Murders" Sequel

Tobe Hooper (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame), in case you didn't know, just finished directing a new movie called The Toolbox Murders (one movie I am seriously anticipating), which is an in-name-only remake of the 1970s slasher flick. Hooper's Toolbox Murders should be hitting stores later this year (yep, it's direct-to-video) and already Mr. Hooper is planning a sequel.(read more...)

Hannibal Lecter Returns - Again

Thomas Harris, author of the "Silence of the Lambs," "Hannibal," and "Red Dragon" novels, announced Friday that he is working on a 4th entry in the series, and of course, the film rights have already been snatched up. The novel is titled "Behind the Mask," and supposedly centers around how Hannibal Lecter got to be so sadistic and cannibalistic.(read more...)

WWE Horror?

In case you didn't know, World Wrestling Entertainment has recently created a new division of their company, and it's called WWE Films. Why is this of any importance to you? Well, possibly because one film they are planning on producing is going to be in the horror genre. Let the fanboy whining commence. What does a wrestling federation know about horror, anyway?(read more...)

Lions Gate Announces Theatrical Release Schedule

Lions Gate Films are pretty much single-handedly keeping the genre of horror… real horror alive. In fact, it's hard to find a horror film these days that isn't being released by Lions Gate. To further illustrate my point, here are recently announced release dates for four highly anticipated Lions Gate films:

Haute Tension - June 3rd, 2005
The Devil's Rejects - August 12th, 2005
Undead - Now listed as "coming soon," so who knows
Saw 2 - October 28th, 2005

Grooviness. I'm very excited about the first three films on that list. As for Saw 2, I still have yet to see the first one, so I'll save my anticipation for the sequel until I view the film that spawned it.

Carpenter's Back... Hopefully

John Carpenter is a director who's not exactly newsworthy all the time. The movies he makes are usually instant classics, but after he makes them it seems as if he goes into hiding for a long while.(read more...)

"Halloween 9" Rumors

This week has been an interesting one for Michael Myers… and I'm not referring to the Austin Powers star. First, the web was buzzing with a couple quotes from Robert England, who said that since Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash never worked out, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Michael just might, but those rumors have since been proven untrue.(read more...)

Preview "The Devil's Rejects"

The trailer for Rob Zombie's second cinema outing, The Devil's Rejects, has recently surfaced on the web, and holy crud it looks good. The film is a sequel to Zombie's debut film, House of 1000 Corpses, though Zombie has said himself that the film is going to have an entirely different hauntingly realistic premise and tone, whereas 1000 Corpses was more campy and humorous.(read more...)

NECA's Latest: Cult Classics

We are living in a wonderful day and age where companies are producing some of the coolest collectibles the world has ever seen. Companies such as McFarlane Toys and NECA have already proven that they are able to create film merchandise that is able to please fanboys like me all over the world, but if they just haven't done enough for you just yet, then hang on a second, because I think they just did.(read more...)

Mezco Announces Second Series of "Cinema of Fear" Figures

Mezco is planning on releasing a second set of "Cinema of Fear" figures. The first set consisted of miniature, Lego-like versions of the trio of terror: Jason Vorhees, Leatherface, and Freddy Krueger. Now, Mezco has announced that the second series will consist of the same characters, only in different attire. In this series, Jason is wearing his pre-hockey mask Friday the 13th: Part 2 outfit, Leatherface is wearing his suit from the end of the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Mr. Krueger is dressed in his New Nightmare getup. The current release date for this set is May of 2005. I can't wait.
