"Xombie" on DVD

For those that don't know, Xombie is an incredibly cool web cartoon about a smarter-than-your-average-zombie zombie that protects a little girl from oncoming hordes of the lesser-in-intelligence undead. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out at http://www.xombified.com . Ok, it's a cool web cartoon-that's all fine and dandy.(read more...)

Romero Talks About "Land of the Dead" and Zombie Video Game

The website known as Dark Universe has posted an interview with George Romero, as interrogated by gaming magazine Edge. In it, Romero says some interesting things about the new video game City of the Dead, which is based in his zombie universe, and talks briefly about his new film, the 4th in the Living Dead series, Land of the Dead. The interview is definitely worth a read if you even remotely like zombies, but then again, I didn't need to tell you that.(read more...)

"Saw II" Website Live

Wow, this came quickly -- about a week after the release of Saw on DVD, the official website for Saw 2 has already gone live, and you can check it out at http://www.saw2.com . Granted, there's not much on the site as of yet (besides a message board and a mailing list, that is), but it is a sign that we'll be seeing a lot more information about this sequel very soon. When any more updates on Saw 2 arise, check this here Haunted Newsreel and you'll surely know about them.

"Oldboy" Coming to the USA

The winner of the 2004 Cannes Special Jury Prize is finally getting a theatrical release in the United States. Oldboy, a psychological tale of revenge and murder, opens on March 25th in New York, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco, gradually expanding to other major cities in the following weeks. Hey, Quentin Tarantino says it's good, so there must be something going on there.(read more...)

"High Tension" Gets Cut, Dubbed

If you follow the horror genre closely, you've no doubt heard of and/or seen previews for Lions Gate Films' High Tension. Perhaps you heard that the film would be arriving in American theatres with an NC-17 rating. Well, about that… Dread Central recently contacted Lions Gate when a rumor popped up about High Tension being cut down to an R for its American release. Turns out that the rumor was true. Not only will High Tension receive an R rating, but it will also now be dubbed in English, as opposed to being in French with English subtitles. Personally, I would have preferred subtitles, but whaddya gonna do?

"The Devil's Rejects" Release Date Moved Up

As a huge House of 1000 Corpses fan, I excitedly search the web daily for any new news of its sequel, The Devil's Rejects, so I was obviously overjoyed when I gained the following bit of knowledge: Rejects has moved its release date from August 12th to a much sooner July 22nd! That means that fans everywhere will be able to glare at their favorite family of deranged freaks three weeks sooner than originally planned!

Raimi and Tapert on "Boogeyman", "Evil Dead", and More

Bloody-Disgusting.com recently posted a quite interesting and extremely informative interview they conducted with Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert, who served as producers on the feces-fest called Boogeyman.(read more...)

Harryhausen Speaks Out!

Out of all of the film special effect concoctors that have existed throughout the span of time so far, it is Ray Harryhausen who I respect the most, due to his completely unsurpassed originality and creativity. So naturally, when he talks, I listen. Or in this case, read, as the website for Now Playing magazine has just posted a new interview with the stop-motion magician himself, in which the man puts into words his views on Peter Jackson's upcoming King Kong remake, all of with which I couldn't agree more. In order to read the entire interview, you'll have to get your hands on the new issue of Now Playing, but the link conveniently listed below does provide a tasty sampling of the talk with the creature-creating genius:(read more...)

Websites Launch for Zombies, Their Master, and a Haunted House

Last week was officially the Week of Website Launches. Not only did the official website for the two upcoming Return of the Living Dead sequels (Necropolis and Rave to the Grave, both of which I am equally excited about) and the new, improved Amityville Horror remake website make their first appearances, but also, the much-anticipated Georgearomero.com was relaunched with a completely new look and some oddly-placed photos of George A. Romero Xbox and iPod skins, both of which (mark my words) I WILL own, if and when they become available to zombie lovers such as myself. To check out any of the aforementioned websites, click on the links below:

"The Manson Family" Coming to DVD April 26th

Certainly the best news of the last two weeks for me has been the following: The Manson Family is arriving on a 2-disc DVD set on April 26th. For those that haven't heard, The Manson Family is supposedly one of the most disturbing portrayals of Charles Manson's murders ever filmed, and has been in production for fifteen years (!!!!). That and the soundtrack totally rips, as it features an entire catalog of Phil Anselmo-related bands such as Superjoint Ritual and Necrophagia.(read more...)
