H2 Poster

Rob Zombie's always been a very Internet-friendly director, posting tidbits about his projects to his MySpace as he works.

Die, Die, My Darcy: Horror Invades Jane Austen Novel in Two New Projects

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

When one weird crossover between English author Jane Austen and the horror genre is announced, it's amusing. When two are in the offing, you start to take notice. Word has been going around for the past couple months about Seth Grahame-Smith's novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which hits bookshelves on May 13, 2009. The book rewrites parts of Austen's literary classic Pride and Prejudice to include the walking dead. As the official press release puts it:(read more...)

John Carpenter Returns to Big Screen Horror with "The Ward"

John Carpenter

For the past seven years, the only way to see new material from John Carpenter was to tune in to the Showtime series Masters of Horror and its NBC spin-off Fear Itself.

The Invisible Man 1933 poster

Every year, the Library of Congress chooses twenty-five films that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant to be preserved in the National Film Registry. This year's selections, announced today, are a varied lot, ranging from comedies (So's Your Man) to film-noir (The Asphalt Jungle) to satirical dramas (A Face in the Crowd). Significant to genre aficionados is the inclusion of James Whale's 1933 sci-fi/horror romp The Invisible Man (1933). One of my favorites of Universal's golden age, the movie follows the transparent Dr.(read more...)

My Bloody Valentine 3D poster

I wouldn't say that I'm excited about Patrick Lussier's My Bloody Valentine 3D, but I'm certainly intrigued. The 3D hook definitely sets it apart from other horror films coming out over the next few months. Let's just say I plan to be there opening weekend, which is actually something I don't do that often with new horror.(read more...)
