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...)

Lost Ed Wood Film Surfaces

Just in time for Halloween, a group of Ed Wood aficionados have announced that they've discovered the highly amusing Z-grade director's last known film, Necromania. Made in 1971 for less than $7,000, the pornographic horror movie tells the tale of a couple who search for occult means to spice up their sex life.(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.

Sequel to "Dawn" Remake Won't Remake "Day of the Dead"

Zack Snyder, director of the highly mediocre Dawn of the Dead remake, announced earlier this week that he will soon start working on a sequel to Dawn. But here's where it gets cryptic: this sequel will not be based on George Romero's original sequel for the original Dawn, and will instead be a stand-alone film. I suppose this is good news… I mean, I'm all for creativity instead of copying someone else's work, so I can't say that I'm against this sequel, but I have do have my doubts as far as the quality of the actual film is concerned, and they were created by the Dawn remake's inability to truly impress me.
