New Line Purchases Rights to Make New "Phantasm" Films

In even more New Line news, the studio has recently announced that they have purchased the rights to the Phantasm phranchise, and are planning to relaunch it as a possible trilogy! Reggie Bannister, star of Phantasm and all of its sequels, has been chatting with a few horror sites and has made it clear that this relaunch is certainly a relaunch-and not a remake. Damn, this week has rocked for horror! The big question now, however, is: will Angus Scrimm be reprising his role as the Tall Man?

"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...)

"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!

"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...)

Posting News, the Bruce Campbell Way

Listen up. First of all, Bruce Campbell, B-movie legend, has a new book coming out titled "Make Love the Bruce Campbell Way." You should buy it when it hits shelves because Bruce Campbell wrote it, and everything Bruce Campbell creates is automatically a masterpiece.

Second of all, The Man with the Screaming Brain, a movie that features Bruce Campbell in more ways than one (he directed, co-wrote, and starred in it), will soon premiere on the Sci-Fi Channel (rest assured I'll fill you in on an actual date when I hear of one).(read more...)

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...)
