We've been generally inconsistent in posting these and for that I apologize. However, given all the neat stuff coming up over the next few months (announcements to be made soon), well, the trend is unlikely to change. So let's get down to some of the stories posted last week that were of note to fans of classic horror movies.(read more...)

The Week in Classic Horror: March 14 - 20, 2009

I'm trying something new this week that will hopefully become a regular feature. Too often I read some really interesting blog post or news snippet and think to myself, "Gosh, the readers at Classic-Horror would dig this," only to be waylaid by the follow-up, "Yeah, but think of all the text regurgitation you'll have to do just to make it a proper news story." The actual news copy is the part I struggle with the most, so instead, I'm doing a weekly round-up of links to posts that I find noteworthy.(read more...)

H2 Poster

Variety is reporting that Rob Zombie will return to write and direct the sequel to his 2007 remake of Halloween, titled H2. This confirms a report made by ShockTillYouDrop.com earlier this month. Although Zombie had stated in the past that he had no interest in a sequel, he has apparently changed his mind, stating, "I was so burned out. [But] I took a long break, made a record and I got excited again." STYD notes that Tyler Mane is set to return as Michael Myers, but otherwise no casting is in place.(read more...)

As Lee Adama on the Sci-Fi Channel's Battlestar Galactica, Jamie Bamber faces the Cylons, a group of cybernetic beings who are the worst case scenario of man's continued development of increasingly complex technologies. Now, in Joel Soisson's Pulse 2: Afterlife (a sequel to the 2005 Kairo remake, Pulse), he is up against another result of technological expansion -- ghosts that are literally in the machines. We had a chance to talk to Bamber about his role in Pulse 2 while we were at San Diego Comic-Con this year.(read more...)

Jeffrey Combs Interview

You probably know Jeffrey Combs best for his role as mad scientist Herbert West in Stuart Gordon's cult classic Re-Animator, but the actor has brought so many more great performances to the genre. In July, at San Diego Comic-Con International, he sat down with us to rap about his latest -- reprising the part of Dr. Vannacutt from 1999's House on Haunted Hill for a new, direct-to-video sequel Return to House on Haunted Hill, being released on October 16th, 2007.

Classic-Horror.com: Tell us a little bit about your character [in Return to House on Haunted Hill]. We saw him in the first film…

Jeffrey Combs: Vannacutt is back… Vannacutt is a scientist from the 20s. We do find out in this one that at one point, he wasn’t such a bad guy. Brilliant scientist, Nobel Prize winner, and then something went terribly dark.

Planet Hollywood to Host "Resident Evil: Extinction" Premiere

Planet Hollywood's Las Vegas Resort and Casino, in an attempt to reinvent itself as the Tinseltown of Nevada, is hosting a month-long promotional push for Screen Gems' Resident Evil: Extinction, which will culminate in the film's September 20th premiere. Two thirty-foot banners advertising the movie, directed by Russell Mulcahy (Highlander), have been flying outside Planet Hollywood Las Vegas since mid-August. Hotel rooms will receive a channel devoted to promotional material for the film, there will be ticket giveaways and a chance to win a BMW motorcycle.

"Usually, premieres are just premieres, but this is an integrated promotion with a premiere," said Mark Weinstock, Executive VP of Marketing for Screen Gems.

"We like to think we're in the marketing world, so we're fully embracing these movies," said Planet Hollywood CEO Robert Earl. "We're giving it over to the movies."(read more...)

Anyone dying for a glimpse at the latest installment in the ongoing Saw saga should head over to Yahoo Movies where the teaser trailer has been posted. The trailer clocks in at 53 seconds and doesn't tell you a lot about the film, other than the fact that there will be people writhing in pain and agony.(read more...)

Director for "The Descent 2"

Speaking at Film Four's FrightFest in London, director Neil Marshall (Dog Soldiers) revealed that he would not be directing a sequel to his film The Descent, Fangoria.com reports. Instead, The Descent 2 would mark the directorial debut of the original film's editor, Jon Harris. Marshall said that although he will not be taking the director's chair this go-around, he would be involved in every aspect of the production. One assumes this also means the script, which has not yet been written.(read more...)
