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:

Chucky's Seed Spills on DVD

I thought that Seed of Chucky was a horrifically hilarious and extremely entertaining entry into the Child's Play franchise, so naturally, recent news about its DVD specs was like music to my ears (only, in my case, it was like music in the goregrind/noise genre, but that's beside the point). Why, here are the specs now:

First of all, there will be three versions of Seed on DVD. The first will be the fullscreen R-rated cut, and then there's the unrated cut, which will appear in two different forms: one fullscreen and the other widescreen. As far as the "bonus features" go, here's what we have to look forward to:(read more...)

Have an Idea for "Freddy vs. Jason 2"?

Freddy vs. Jason 2's development status has been on and off. First we hear it's going to happen, and that Ash will be joining the battle, then we hear that that idea has been completely scrapped, then we hear that there are no plans for the sequel, then we hear there are, then we hear there aren't again, and so on and so forth. Well, Creature-corner.com recently reported that they've had a chance to speak with the vice-president of production at New Line Cinema, and he said the following about FvJ2:

"Unfortunately, there are no current plans for a sequel…Would love to hear from fans if this is disappointing to them. Also, would love to know what story they would want to see since the Ash match-up hasn't worked out."(read more...)

Attack of the New Trailers

This is just a little heads up-a few trailers for upcoming films have found their way to the web. Below is a list of the new trailers, along with some linkage so you can click, sit back, and enjoy the Windows Media/Quicktime magic…

…okay, I lied. None of this is "magic", with the exception of Rottweiler and maybe Creep and The Nun (notice, the only exceptions are the independent films). Everything else listed here looks, and this is purely from viewing the trailers, like feces. I felt the need to include this, however, to illustrate the point made in the beginning of this column. Yeah, go ahead…watch it. See what I mean?

"Creepshow 3" in Development

It seems as if Taurus Entertainment, the company responsible for the upcoming Day of the Dead sequel (Day of the Dead: Contagium) is developing yet another sequel to a Romero-involved film, and this time it's Creepshow. Yes, that's right-- you'll be seeing Creepshow 3 in some form in the near future.(read more...)

"Evil Dead IV" Still a Possibility

Zap2It.com reports the following:

"When he's all finished with the Spider-Man franchise, director Sam Raimi thinks he'd like to go back to his horror roots and add to his Evil Dead series. 'I definitely want to do it and I think after -- whenever the Spider-Man jobs end -- I would love to dig in on that,' Raimi says. 'That's something I'm really looking forward to.'(read more...)

Raimi to Hold a Second "Grudge"

Sam Raimi's production outfit Ghost House Pictures (whatever happened to Renaissance, anyway?) is looking to fund a sequel to their recent horror remake hit The Grudge. Stephen Susco, the writer of the previous entry, has been contracted to pen the second film in what may become a franchise. The Grudge is a remake of the 2003 Japanese horror flick Ju-On, and the two films shared the same director, Takashi Shimizu.(read more...)

Tobe Hooper Planning "Toolbox Murders" Sequel

Tobe Hooper (of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame), in case you didn't know, just finished directing a new movie called The Toolbox Murders (one movie I am seriously anticipating), which is an in-name-only remake of the 1970s slasher flick. Hooper's Toolbox Murders should be hitting stores later this year (yep, it's direct-to-video) and already Mr. Hooper is planning a sequel.(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.

Hannibal Lecter Returns - Again

Thomas Harris, author of the "Silence of the Lambs," "Hannibal," and "Red Dragon" novels, announced Friday that he is working on a 4th entry in the series, and of course, the film rights have already been snatched up. The novel is titled "Behind the Mask," and supposedly centers around how Hannibal Lecter got to be so sadistic and cannibalistic.(read more...)
